"But when you say "educate", surely you mean "de-convert".  You seem to equate "rational" with "correct".  Rational, in an atheist sense, just means scientific, intellectual, materialist.  But…"

"Well, I disagree. It's not a case of "de-converting" people. It's a case of educating them. I'd like a world full of people who are rational. That might be asking a lot, but the more people who are turned off religion, the…"

"I don't believe we should be trying to de-convert people, I think we just need to get religious people to clean up their game.  They're only human, they get confused and led astray.  Their underlying concepts are sound, and in…"

"Well I think in part it's because a lot of people don't like to stand out from the crowd. There's safety in numbers, and many people think that because a lot of people think a certain way then they must be right. And so they go along…"

""...it's an absurdity that causes a lot more problems than it fixes." THAT, right there, is why I can't keep my mouth shut about religion. It slows progress and stumps knowledge. It's not just intolerance of other…"

"Hey, don't get me wrong, me too. At least I won't take nonsensical, attempts to modify my behaviour based on 2,000+ year old ignorance and/or fantasy. I have been a part of a religion (not christian) and I miss very much certain aspects of…"

Why are you here?
You mean, as in "on the planet/in the universe?" or "on this website?"...

No reason I'm on the planet. On the website because I'm a radical atheist and want to meet like minded people.
The religion you left
Catholic
Why you left your religion.
Because it's utter bollocks, a monumental lie, totally irrelevant to the 21st century, and too many people who believe that crap have too much power and need to be educated about it, as well as be disempowered, ridiculed and made to see what they represent.
