Oh yeah, Atheists are the *worst* about witnessing their (un)faith these days, and in the same, in your face, aggressive, YOU MUST AFFIRM MY BELIEFS sort of desperate way as evangelists. Without irony.

Just like I used to assume all theists were crazy fundies, I now assume all atheists are le modern enlightened perfectly rational types who I would rather be vivisected than spend one minute hearing them speak at me.

This is because ATHEISM IS A RELIGION.   It is a religion whose militants are more abusive than any other religion except perhaps Islam.  And that may only be a temporary situation, because there are atheist fundies who *would* go around killing heretics if they could.

Militant atheists HATE being told that atheism is NOT the same thing as absence of religion.  Make sure you remind them of that as often as possible.

Not all *everyone* is the way we think *everyone* like that is. 

The question becomes, are a significant portion of *some* of them that way? Enough that it is a problem? 


When a subset of 15% of the population is responsible for more than 50% of the violent crime including murder, rape, theft, and other criminal activities - does it become fair to assume that people from that 15% group, especially ones who look *like* the subset of that 15% minority - are potentially criminal? That isn't *racism*. That is a prudent conclusion. 

I mean - just because SOME white men *can* dance, doesn't mean that white folks aren't generally shittier dancers that you encounter in other ethnic groups. 

Likewise - there are a lot of atheists screwing up the perception for the rest of them currently. It didn't used to be that way. But the voice of the militant and extreme branch of atheism currently drowns out the more traditional atheist voice.

The truth is, stereotypes come into existence for a reason. If a large number of X is seen being Y, it will create a stereotype. And that's ok. It doesn't mean we're going to assume "all X are Y" and it certainly doesn't mean "we hate X because Y". As an Italian-American I have had people assume that I am associated with the mafia. I think it's kind of funny, actually.

You're associated with ME. And you'd better repay that loan or it's cement running shoes

Wait, no, kneecaps and fingernails first. *Then* cement.

Right, who do you think we ( mafia ) are, heathens? No, we are civilized and have a code.

You know what they say. If somebody says he is Mafia, he isn't.

I am sure IG has a stash of Canadian Whiskey in his basement and spends his time making offers people can't refuse.

Do you have any plan to deliver it?

Actually, I am a sucker for cheap Kentucky Bourbon.

Somehow I doubt that you'd be willing to give me your physical address even if I wanted to send you a bottle.

When it comes to bourbon ... my favorite is Booker's. It's unfiltered and makes your socks roll up and down when you drink it, but damn is it good.

I am afraid my location is not up for disclosure. Besides, it may be beyond your ability to ship to if for an affordable price.

The bourbon I most often have is whitelabel from local markets. Many of the white labels are actually very good for the price. Besides, most of them sport my favourite pet on the label.
