Quote# 96508

People who become atheists do so because they got picked on in high school. Rummage through an atheist's emotional baggage and you will find a pile of leftover teenage angst, a few cases of repressed rage at mommy and daddy, and an overpowering urge to feel superior wrapped around a stupendous amount of self-loathing. Ultimately the "atheist movement" is just another Internet fad, mostly made up of attention whores, sycophants, stupid arrogant twats, bigots, as$holes, and demagogues.

Ultimately the "atheist movement" fundamentalist Christianity is just another Internet fad, mostly made up of attention whores, sycophants, stupid arrogant twats, bigots, as$holes, and demagogues.

'Hog Warsh'? Is this a Poe?

That’s strange, I am an atheist and have never even been in a High School (what with growing up in a country with a different school system). Nor have I’ve been bullied during my school years, in fact bullying was never much of an issue at the schools I visited.

You pretty much described about 99.7% of all teenagers in your first sentence. The second sentence is just plain stupid.

My, that was excellent scientific writing.

OK, just keep believing that as atheism grows and the number of religious continues to shrink.

9/13/2013 4:50:20 AM


Well, first off, citing "evidence" as a "source" for your claims is the very DEFINITION of arrogance.

Secondly, atheists have existed long, long, long before the Internet was even the fevered dream of science fiction authors.

Ok, some real thought here. I know a lot of atheists. (I know a lot of religious people, too, but I'm focusing on the atheists here.) I have spoke with many of them and the source of their atheism seems to always come down to one of four things.

1. Being brought up in (sometimes brutally) repressive and restrictive fundamentalist faiths caused them to ultimately reject faith either as a means of achieving some measure of independence and self-determination or as a refusal to become what they see their parents as being.

2. The religion they were brought up in rejects or condemns them simply for being who they are. Gay, liberal, whatever. Why hold to a faith that hates you?

3. They were brought up in non-religious homes.

4. As they matured, they ultimately rejected religion as being incompatible with logic, critical thinking, or their worldview.

I have never met an atheist who became an atheist as a result of being bullied in high school.

1) Atheism predates Christianity, so, no, it it isn't just another Internet fad.

2) You claim evidence, but provide none. Your claims can therefore be dismissed.

3) Fuck you, you sanctimonious twat.

"People who become atheists do so because they got picked on in high school."

Fundies do a lot of that picking on, so, ehem, you created the atheist movement.

"the "atheist movement" is just another Internet fad,"

Because atheism didn't exist before the internet. Even though the stored program computer and Windows was created by atheists.

If that were true, Christian would be at the forefront of the anti-bullying movement.

Got pointed and laughed at by people for 'professing your beliefs at high school much, Hogwash?

Because you're projecting so much, you certainly make the IMAX format obsolete.

Welcome to Planet Reality, especially Secularismville. Population: you.

Which is probably why you're being picked on now. >:D

Apparently it has escaped your notice that atheists have become more outspoken at the same time that fundies are becoming more and more hateful and aggressive about taking power in government and trying to oppress everyone else with their so-called morality by way of legislation.

9/13/2013 6:00:35 AM


I became an atheist in middle school. Now what?

9/13/2013 6:05:18 AM


Also, atheism predates the Internet. It REALLY predates the Internet.

9/13/2013 6:06:40 AM


I was born atheist and remain so.

9/13/2013 6:17:12 AM


Well, as long as you have evidence...

Hmm! That's odd? I became an atheist because I was born. Still, each to their own.

9/13/2013 7:25:04 AM


i love how this person misspelled psychopaths and wrote stupid straight afterwards... ah twofunni

9/13/2013 7:42:43 AM



Er, sycophant's a real word. It refers to someone who sucks up to someone in order to gain some sort of advantage or favor. How it applies to atheists more than Christians or other theists, on the other hand, is beyond me.

9/13/2013 7:58:32 AM


Either poe or exceptional failure

Funny, the 2 atheist I am close to in my life are very stable emotionally and mentally. The fundie christians on the other hand are some really messed up folks.
