Atheists, not agnostics, do believe in God. They hate him, that's all.

I don't hate God, I just hate you.
If your god were real, I would hate him.
Jezebel's Evil Sister
True, I do hate bible god — but no more than I hate any other
So, agnostics aren't sure whether they hate god?
You know what else I hate? Unicorns. And Zeus. And Thor. And leprechauns - nasty little buggers.
No, wait. I don't hate them. I don't believe in them. There is a difference.
My firstborn is an atheist and he doesn't hate your god...he just finds him non-existent and irrelevant.
So agonstics, people who claim to only not know if God exists and pretend like they are somehow neutral on this whole issue don't believe in God, and atheists who claim to not believe in God but they actually do but claim to not because they GAW this is too stupid!
How can you hate someone who doesn't exist?
Atheist: "I don't believe in your god".
Fundie: (jumping up and down, throwing a temper tantrum)
"You DO! You do SO! You believe in God and you KNOW it! You just hate him! And you're going to hell for it."
Aw, shut up.
Right. So atheists, who by definition "deny the existence of God," believe in god...
Also, Agnostics seem to tend towards "I don't care, go away you irritating little person."
I don't hate anyone or anything, especially not a fictitious character. Try to get it through your thick skull: just because *you* can't imagine not believing in god doesn't mean the rest of us a similarly constrained.
I don't know what alternative universe this guy's conception of an atheist comes from, but i am pretty sure it's the one where A. hitler is the paragon of virtue.
Well, if I would believe that god, exactly as described in the bible existed, I would surely hate him, as the descriptions in the old testament let him appear as a despotic entity, worse than Hitler, for which the life of most humans hasn´t much worth.
Fortunately, despite being neither an atheist or an agnostic, I have absolutely no doubt that the bible is something written by humans, which deosn´t have too much to do with any real actions by divine entities.
Btw. what about people who believe not in your god, but some other divine entity, be it Shiva, Odin, the invisible pink unicorn or whatever...
do they also hate god and this is the reason why they have another faith?
So agonstics, people who claim to only not know if God exists and pretend like they are somehow neutral on this whole issue
Hey now! As an agnostic, I don't "pretend" to be neutral, I
The militant agnostic in me would say "You don't know and neither do I!" and would leave it at that.
To hate or not to hate is not applicable for me, I just don't care. I
what people say, think and/or do in the name of religion but hate is too strong of a word for even that.
Fundies, not atheists, do believe in dictionaries. They hate using them, that's all.
Have you ever been an atheist? If not, how do you know what they feel? Why hate someone who doesn't, to their knowledge, exist?
Sorry no, I dont hate your God character.
I dont hate ANY imaginary beings
Oh, look. A fundie who is unclear on the concept of atheism. How unusual.
If god were real, he'd hate everyone, even you raptards.
Allegory for Jesus
Just like Christians really hate that there Shiva, Zeus, Thor, Ra and Amaterasu, amirite?
"Also, Agnostics seem to tend towards "I don't care, go away you irritating little person." "
Ditto - as a reformed atheist - no deny just apathy to the point. Still have opinions about organized religion though.
Wow, well at least s/he spelled "atheist" right, that's new.
Mmmm hmm, keep telling yourself that.
danged doubled comments.
why can't I see the original post, anyway
I don't believe in your Christian definition of god in any way, shape, or form, but if he was real I'd be eager to beat seven shades of shit out of him.
