I think they're very scared that they are very wrong. Maybe they think if they are unpleasant enough believers will stop posting the truth and the atheists can go on their merry uninformed way.

It must be me Rev. Otter. Some on this discussion forum have been more than unpleasant to me. (J.Green is a prime example)

Rev. Otter says:
as illustrated so brilliantly above, it's invariably my fellow theists who insist on hurling barbs my way.

oh, well. :)

whomper: "they are afraid that someone might impose morality on them"

There is a thread here related to this. It's entitled, "Is it really possible for something like morality to be an evolved characteristic?" You should probably check it out.

I can promise you that your morality is no better than the average atheist.

It is even worse when one adds "true" in front of "believer".

M. Simonson says:
I wonder how much of this has to do with the view of Christianity they have encountered in a public sense. For example one question that may be asked is "Why isn't something like sexual abuse of children covered in the 10 commandments". They have in view from the start a false positioning of the 10 commandments they picked up from that which they have heard living in society. This is usually a view that the 10 are meant to cover all just and moral law.

Many Christians don't understand either, and don't know how to answer that. But to the rescue come the false teachers who try to say that the inclusion of adultery in the 10 serves as a precept against all sexual immorality. This is wrong, it's crazy, and it's not that hard for folks to figure out. I suppose there is a tendency to get angry at those who spout this stuff, especially if they claim in an arrogant way to have the moral high ground.

I also have considered Bart Ehrman's statement's about his experience growing up and feeling "empty inside" as a teenager. Bart claims to have once believed he was "born again". Bart later reflects "that the void we felt inside (We were teenagers! All of us felt a void!) was from not having Christ in our hearts."
Bart is right. He ran into the "god shaped hole" theory. When folks get fooled they are mad at themselves, but they are also mad at the people who fooled them.
Not that man wasn't meant to have a relationship with his creator, but this "God shaped hole" business is taught in such a shallow and mindless way that there is going to be a counter-reaction to anything that bad by anybody with at least 1/2 a brain.

There are many other examples of course like what Gandhi quotes about Christians.

Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless

<<<whomper says:
they are afraid that someone might impose morality on them
and they wont be able to shoot up drugs and screw anything that moves
then demand that we pay trillions to give them hiv drugs to keep them alive

they dont want to take responsibility for themselves
and that scares them >>>

Whether or not you accept the claim that gods exist has nothing to do with morality.

Lufer says:
You are right, I don't know you, but I know math. Assuming you are human and you are Christian, you are statistically no more likely to have better morals than the average atheist. In fact, there have been studies done that seem to suggest that the opposite would be true.

whomper writes "they are afraid that someone might impose morality on them and they wont be able to shoot up drugs and screw anything that movesthen demand that we pay trillions to give them hiv drugs to keep them alive. they dont want to take responsibility for themselves
and that scares them."

Is this whomper for real or is he/she just trolling?

I can't figure out if this person is being sarcastic or not.

I'm assuming whomper is not being sarcastic.

You mean like Ted Haggard whomper?

Funny thing. A neighbor down the street was a church going, god believing husband, but him and his wife are now getting divorced because he was playing around with other women. I guess he wasn't a real Christian after all and neither was Ted Haggard or the Bakers or those pedophile priests. A long list that goes back 40 years.

Yeah the prisons and jails are full of those immoral Atheists who do not want to take responsibility for themselves. There are only a few dozen Atheists left on the outside in the United States. All their fellow Atheists are all in jail. Well, those few dozen left will be in prison soon enough given they have no hold on their moral behavior. They are bound to slip up and be caught. Boy there must be a lot of scientists in prison due to their obvious Atheistic immoral behavior.

Angry at believers.

Not this Atheist. I just do not understand their willingness to entangle their brain and life up in 4th century Middle East and earlier dogma. Then to pass it on to their children to continue the charade.

Angry. Nope. Just mystified and amazed.

There's a war on reason in this country. On one extreme you have the Bible-believing extremists who think the earth is between 6,000 years old, who believe there actually was a world-wide flood, who think that Adam and Eve actually existed... need I go on? An atheist simply does not believe there is a god. Thus the Bible is false. So everything these people contrive to believe with their million-dollar museums and lies about evolution and the age of fossils is also false. But the barrage continues day after day. If it's not that believers are the only moral people out there it's that they are the only ones going to their mythical place called heaven or that they should be accorded special status and have their beliefs taught as science in school. The entire Bush administration worked off this principal. If they don't believe it then they don't have to do anything about it. And now in the same vein we have climate change deniers. We have birthers. We have 9/11 conspiracy nuts. It's all a war on reason. Because if you refuse to accept facts you can't be reasoned with. And religionists are the worst at refusing to accept facts.

This kind of discussion is largely an excuse for insulting people who have different views, and I do not find it useful.
