Just a quick little note for people of any belief system.

Perhaps We Should Leave's picture

(For non-atheists, insert whatever applies to your beliefs wherever you see a religious noun.)

Dear Angry Atheists:

I'm getting real tired of your shit.

You make the rest of us look bad with your constant ranting about how religion is 'the root of all evil' and your constant warmongering between groups that could actually get along just fine if it weren't for people like YOU. On BOTH sides. Because you're no different than the fundamentalists who call atheists or others of differing beliefs 'heretics' and 'evil'. They say atheism causes moral corruption, you endorse the inverse.

You're the same fucking people with the same fucking issues, and all of us who don't share your extremity are done with you. We don't like you. You don't represent us, nor should you.

So here's my advice:

SHUT.

THE.

FUCK.

UP.

Thank you.

All my love,
Greer Stewart

Uh... You're the one who's tired!

A rational solution would be sleep... no?

Umm...

If this is a joke, you're really, really bad at them.

If it's not...

Well, if it's not, I think you're crazier than I am.

But I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep,

I really don't know...

My response was such since I had no idea what prompted the journal. For me, it was totally "out of the blue" and devoid of background. Sorry!

I agree with this.

But I'm also not an atheist, so I guess that isn't special.

Regardless, I'm surprised at how extreme these atheists are and how many of them are in the extreme. It's horrifying that people hate each other over what personal beliefs they have, even in cases when it affects nobody else.

Actually...

Only a few atheists are in the extreme. It's just that most of us moderates wind up sounding religious because we defend them.

Of course, given that I worship an ancient Greek goddess of chaos, perhaps I'm just a bad atheist.

Impossible,

How can you be an atheist and believe in the Greek goddess Eris?;)
It would seem people lean to one extreme or the other with religion. I mean, I'm a recovering Catholic, but I no longer believe in the 'Church'.

Whenever...

you need other people to behave a certain way to maintain your own happiness, you're off to a bad start.
