don't you think trying to convert someone to atheism might be just as bad as trying to convert someone to a religion...
No. And the word would be "deconvert."
you're like jehovah's witnesses...
And you're like an uninformed child of a Jehovah's witness.
get a life.

too bad "deconvert" isn't a word.
just because you disagree with a theist's beliefs doesn't invalidate their argument.
furthermore you should respect someone else's beliefs, however ridiculous it may seem.
No, that's why we're here. You've been brainwashed to believe that. We should respect beliefs that deserve to be respected, not just beliefs in general. We should however... respect a persons right to have any belief, even if it's a belief that doesn't deserve respect. Take a peek at this, expand your mind.
"believe in god? we can fix that".....did you ever think that religion serves a necessary personal and social function?
Yes, and did you ever think that being without religion serves an even more necessary function?
maybe people *gasp* WANT to believe in god?!
Duh! Maybe people want to commit murder and shoot up heroin too... see any faults in that? Or should we respect their beliefs and just allow them to do it?
oh wait, no it doesn't matter what you WANT...the "rational response squad" has decided what's better, for you.
Yes we have. A life based on what we can prove, one of reality. Life is too short to waste it on myths, fantasy, delusion, and fiction.
yeah...you got a life...
too bad its on myspace.
go ahead...change the world one website at a time..
We will. We already do.
