^ Yes, thanks, grindy. I think this thread has been under-modded for too long. In addition to personal attacks, the topic seems to be inspiring people to use gratuitously offensive language:-

There's been quite a lot of to and fro in this thread about "you are brainwashed" and "you haven't seen the light", but isn't it a philosophical premise that if we suggest that our opponent is blind or deluded, we should conceed that a similar blindness or delusion could be hampering our own vision? Rather than talking about absolute certainties, it may be more accurate to talk about personal convictions. Maybe "nothing is real... and nothing to get hung up about."
Anyway, if that is too existential to put into practice, it is at least a reason to speak respectfully to each other, and Neapolitan's quote is another:-

My personal conviction is pretty much in agreement with Chula's take on Christianity, and I thought his brief history of a specific sex scandal in the US was particularly damning, but on the other hand, I don't see the need to bait mordwyr so aggressively. In fact I have considered, in order to balance out these religious threads, opening one for atheism. That way we atheists could revel in the joys of not being shackled to a faith, and we could leave mordwyr in relative peace. Would there be any takers for such a thread, I wonder?

No.

At this point in human evolution the point that Christianity is make believe cannot be overstated. It must be hammered relentlessly.

^ Thanks, mordwyr, but it turns out that there are already several Atheism threads, so I don't see much point in starting a new one. They've all been dormant for quite a time, so it looks like atheists get bored with talking to each other after a while - they wanna go out on the prowl and throw some punches!!

But if there are any constructive-minded atheists out there, I'm inviting you to shore up your own edifice, go to your own party, and take a break from knocking someone else's church:-

A "Christianity Sucks" thread would get more action because that's not really a conversation about atheism.

And are we really saying that atheists live in a house full of **** in the Christianity thread? Aye
