I'm just another hater... [Trollville]
I came here hoping to find friends with similar beliefs(agnostic), and sadly only found another hate website. After reading many of the threads in the mailbag section, I'm amazed at the arrogance displayed by the atheists, while they are telling the theists how arrogant THEY are. All I can say is, WOW. I am looking for OPEN MINDED PEOPLE, not haters. While you claim to be open minded and free thinking, you have made up your minds, and are as close minded as the believers you so strongly hate. Two wrongs do not make a right. Just because you've read a book and taken a philosophy class doesn't make you an authority on such issue as the existence of a higher power.
You are not winning any hearts and minds that way. It's obvious, don't believe me, go back and read some of the things you have written. If you are what it means to be an atheist, then just count me out. It was also obvious on the "debate" the other night. The arrogance of your representatives was appalling. Of course they don't believe in a higher power, because to believe in a higher being you must first be able to believe there is someone or something greater than YOURSELF.
BTW, who were those other clowns anyway? I recognize the younger guy from old TV shows, but I mean do they even have degrees in their fields. It didn't look like it to me, surely they weren't supposed to be posing as apologists. Of course they did bring it on themselves I suppose. I know their fellow believers probably cringed at the thought of being represented by those guys. What good does it do to debate the existence of god by poking holes in a theory that's flawed to begin with. Anybody with half a brain knows that evolution has more holes in it than swiss cheese. Besides, how does evolution prove, or disprove for that matter, the existence of a higher being, it doesn't.
Anyway, my search continues, but you should consider toning down the hatred for people simply because they don't agree with you, it makes your side look as bad as the extremists on the other side of the issue. I know you will probably delete this, that's understandable, and don't worry about deleting my account, I'll do that myself if I have the option. Or you may want to keep it so you can reply and tell me how stupid or ridicules you think I am. That's OK too, what you think of me is irrelevant just as what any hate group thinks about anything is irrelevant.
I would like to know one thing though, why do you lash out so against theists and belittle them anyway? Is it simply because of your beliefs, or are you scared because most of the world understands and senses something in the world that you can't. After all, most people in the world do believe in a higher power in one form or another, so maybe you guys are the ones with the mental disorder.
Maybe one day I will find the answer to these questions and others, but until then, my journey continues.....
