Want proof that religion is dying? Look no further than the dominance of atheists on the Internet. We fucking own this place, and it's only matter of time be...
While this guy is totally annoying and swears too much, he is correct. It's just sad that so many people have to hide behind the internet to demonstrate their atheist beliefs.
The reason Atheists proliferate the internet is we don't have churches, temples, community meeting halls etc. So our Atheist communities are on the internet.
The other brilliant thing about the internet, we see and read about the insidious things xians are getting up to, which makes our cause even stronger, then we can watch Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Ricky Gervais George Carlin etc etc. All fabulous fodder for us Atheists.
He gives new meaning to the term abrasive. I was always told a drop of honey on the tongue is a better approach than rubbing salt in the wound.
Everyone has their own style I suppose.
@ Marc--You don't "hide" on the internet. It's just a medium where people can share themselves to whatever degree they choose, and Dusty (for whatever his faults) is pretty open about who he is. Also, "atheist beliefs" is a ridiculous contradiction.
"preach it!" lmfao
He's overdoing the profanity a smidge.
Wow, he went a whole minute with dropping the F bomb. It must have been hard for him to hold back.
Well I certainly would like you to be right, but since people get to chose how they use the internet most people will probably not click on these sies you are referring to. Besides the christians and other are using the internet to spread their messages also. There does seem to be a break away of more people from traditinal religion and with the rise of the atheist movents and groups that have sprung since the middle 1990's it is possible to join atheist,secular,freethought groups. I notice from being on many sites the same small dozen over so people being the doers in groups with 400 or more membes. Many still do not put a picture up nor leave any comment nor any sign of ever coming to any event. I am a history major and a life long atheist, "white" civil rights,labor, feminist.antiwar activist and real early supporter of gays and leesbians(I am "heterosexual") and my experience tells me things change really small. You might take notice of reacism and segregation. Kansas City intercity schools just lost the accreditation because the "leaders" and the people do not care enough to pay the cost of their past. The majority have had all kinds of help and encouragement to move to the suburbs where some willingly tax themselves more tohave superior schools. That equality stuuff is myth too. People want privilege. Christianity is part of that privilege and in practice many atheist have, do and will continue to go after privilege versus equality. That strenghten christianity as a social force I unfortunely I do not expect that to change. Even myself I worked in what I called the privileged layer of the working class. Most of my coworkers thought I should be basically "bought and paid for", my terminology, because I had such a good paying job.Few had any desire to help those"less fortuneate". Habitant For Humanity band-aid approach by doing vlounteering to help a dozen people is much cheaper than providing for millions. Besides many hope to somehow get rich. Lottery,casino, business of your own dreams. Most fail. Can we grow over time? Yes. But we have a long way to go ! Billions over tax dollars and all kinds of govt property are given to the churches. Christianity is taught in the schools with no punishments meted out to these law breakers and atheist kids are haraased and beaten.No punishment against these bullies either. Where are our tv channels or programs? The christians still have almost all the propaganda machine of newspakers,magazine,education, govt , public officials. etc. almost everything. We atheist have to build a moventaand that will not happen for a long time yet. People in other countries also believe in bullshit and will continue to do so. Atheist will come under attack as they mhave been and all the ills of the world will be blamed on atheist and you should understand how many people will be satisfied to blame us no matter how stupid we think it is. Hanf in there for the rest of your life and many generations after we are all long gone and probably all but the few-forgotten! Cheers to us all!
