sometimes it’s hard not to strike back. lord knows i want to. with every fiber. which is part of what they want, i think. so – i’ll refrain.
instead, i’ll simply ask – why in the world do folks who think religion is a joke care so much about what others think about religion? the party line of militant atheists is that the ad is aimed at letting other "closet" atheist know "they are not alone."
i don’t believe in martians; i don’t believe in man-made global warming; i don’t believe in getting cancer via using deodorant. there are lots of folks who do. and yet, i don't feel alone, nor do i feel the compulsion to offend or pick a fight with folks who fall prey to what seems to be, from my perspective, faulty logic. it's what they believe. they have the right to have faith in what seems to me to be clear idiocy. great. go for it. i have no desire to impede their thought process.
so what's up with the full frontal on folks of faith? if there are any non-religious folks who are interested in a serious discussion of this question, please inform me. cause it’s driving me nuts.
