Christopher Hitchens

Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. -Christopher Hitchens 1949-2011

    Even if you are just a lower class person no one can stop you from reading books about your belief, if its Atheism or Religion, at the library and standing out on a street corner and talking about it. You can even do what a lot of people are doing here and post things all over the Internet about what you believe. Speak out against evil using the Internet. It's free at the library :)

    I disagree with Angela. I've spoken my mind and beliefs most of my life and I still have friends. Three friends from high school and before. And even if you are alone that is no necessarily a bad thing. Many things in life are worse than being alone.

    I agree when you say," you don't want to be an agree atheist". I am not advocating being an "angry atheist". One doesn't have to be aggressive or belligerent to effectively convey a sound and logical argument. Removing all emotion from your debate makes you a much stronger force in the delivery of the atheist point of view. I don't believe you should ever let them engage you on an emotional level because that is the basis of the christian beliefs. If you will not be dragged down to that level they cannot manipulate the argument on their terms.
