Atheism even has missionaries. Those missionaries are on these boards right now!! They came into a board marked "spiritual discussion" WHY?? What are they accomplishing? And why are they trying to accomplish anything? If atheism is the lack of belief in God, then why are they coming on to a board about spirituality?

Well, my dear chum, unlike supporters and writers of the bible, open-minded people are folks that enjoy reading more than one book. They enjoy engaging in discussions about things that they are interested in. They are, most likely, people who used to believe in god, and are either confirming what they already know, or are desperately looking for something that may prove to them that god is really real. Unlike others, they probably don't think that they are done learning because they think the rapture is at hand. They actually care about things enough to learn. Unlike xtians they are reading and studying up on their opponants stance on a subject so that they are able to engage an intelligent debate.

besides, coming to a x-tian board to discuss spirituality should be a good thing to you, right? I mean, you can feel that there is at least a chance to try and convert the heathen, right? Don't forget, book-learnin' don't necessarily stop when you drop out of high school.

Actually, the guy has a point. Atheists who go onto fundie boards are most probably there to troll, and I can understand the fundies' annoyance, just as I am annoyed at all the fundies who constantly troll the science article message boards and turn every single science article into an excuse for a god-vs.-science debate.

It's like sober people coming to a board about drunkenness.

Missionaries go from their home country to other countries. The only famous atheists I've known to do that were doing so to promote books or attend a conference, but fundies do it to annoy others until they convert to their religion (though in countries like Japan where Christianity is a minority religion, it probably doesn't work out to well).

Sorry, can't stop to talk now. I'm putting on my best suit so I can go around town leaving blank tracts at every door.
