Re: Not sure
Unless someone objects I would like to take a crack at giving my take on the points that were raised by Buzzsaw. Wanted to make sure it wouldn't be considered thread jacking or something similar.
If you're on topic, then go for it.
If you make a mistake, it can be handeled afterwards.

the ultimate ignorance that most theists portray
Most?
that majority of members of my very own species are willfully denying anything and everything the world has to offer just because of camel-riders campfire stories
Majority?
Where are you getting your figures?

Welcome to EvC, saab93f. Thanks for replying.
Wierd name... Are you a 93 year old female that drives a Saab?
Most of theists believe that an omnipotent "thing" is watching their every move and expecting worship. To me that is ignorance of reality.
How does that follow? Seems like a non sequitur to me...
Assuming reality is godless, how does someone being convinced of something fallacious, or choosing to believe something by faith, chalk up as ignorance?
Doesn't that assume that reality shows that god does not exist? Can you spell that one out for me?
One of my problems with being this type of atheist is that I don't see how I could know that god doesn't exist.
If one sums up the numbers of adherents of Abrahamic religions then that equals to a majority. Abrahamic religions have their roots in Middle-East campfire stories (previously told by Sumeritans et al.).
And you think those adherents "are willfully denying anything and everything the world has to offer"? And their only reason is "just because of camel-riders campfire stories"?
Or are you just employing some hyperbole here?
The theists I know don't deny much of any of the things the world has to offer, and they have lots of reasons they believe besides the campfire stories. You just look plain old wrong to me.
