"1. Depends, if everything else is the same what sort of god what it be? Not one that deserves worshipping for sure. 2. Of course. It wouldn't happen straight away, humans are stubborn, but eventually i would realise that god does exist."

"One would certainly think it's a crime of some sort to be an athiest (or, at times, even a non-christian) in the states, seeing our politicians and military men trip over each other to get as close to the foot of the cross as possible.  I…"

"I myself haven't experienced discrimination.  People generally get to know me prior to discovering my atheism, and then it's hard to be hateful.  :o)  However, I refuse to reveal my atheism to anyone where I work.  I…"

"Hi Mabel, you may well be right. What I was trying to get at / counterbalance was the tone of the replies that the lady was getting that portrayed her as a victim and the LDS people as evil.  It wasn't meant to be particularly personal, I…"

"Nate, a bit of the meaning of the word cult. A lot of words have different nuances (semantic range) of meaning and the context in which they are found is decisive for understanding the meaning correctly. If you read all the definitions of the word…"

Try and be mindful that this is a niche site for atheists and non-religious people.  While I don't want to stifle your views, your tone is questionable. Your posts have stated or implied that various atheists views are absurd, delusional, at the philosophical level of a six-year-old, and disingenuous.  If that's your genuine opinion, then it is what it is -- certainly many members here are not so kind to theism so I can't fault you alone for being tactless.  

If, on the other hand, you're just looking to aggravate members, I ask that you give deeper consideration to what you want out of your participation here.

Thank you for accepting my friends request. Yes I am a Christian.

I understand it's not easy never has gotten easy for me. I think I've been for 2 years not that long, but it's worth it.
