""Not a true atheist?" That implies that atheism is a religion.    There is only one qualification in being a "true atheist": believe there is no god. "

"I like what you say better than what I usually do, because it accomplishes the same goal as "god had nothing to do with it" but without the angry undertone.   What about 'god had nothing to do with it' followed by a smile?"

I believe that the reason atheists and theists are unable to get along and agree on simple matters doesn't come from the belief (or non belief) of some higher being, but because of the misconceptions of every religion about one another.  Because of so many stereotypes and misunderstandings in this world, today, it's nearly impossible to learn about a characteristic or fact about somebody and not judge them because of some stereotype one has previously heard.  This doesn't even apply just to…
