This guy is classic when it comes to using sarcasm and the Socratic Method to make his point. Watch to see what I mean:

It's called prejudice. Check out the other thread on this board titled "News, Atheist Christopher Hitchens' cancer news prompts conversion debate"

You'll see one very delusional poster who is obviously closed minded and ignorant.

One thing is that probably many do know atheists but just don't know they are.
There are many people I have known for years and they simply weren't aware of it or still aren't.
So many people no longer go to church or go to different ones, that it is often just assumed you don't attend or attend a different one.
For the times it has been discovered, I have to chuckle at the responses

Hmmm.. Well, those cartoon liberals were a sight too easy going in my view. I mean they didn't mention the other atheist leader Pol Pot. Very sloppy of them. Not to mention they omitted to point out that atheists are really Muslims, so, not only are they hypocritical and deluded, but they are not really even atheists. They believe in all those non - existent gods in which I don't believe for a moment which makes them effectively theists and me an.... cut the tape there..I said CUT..

Ever wonder how [some] Christians view atheists without really knowing atheists?


Why----Unintelligently, of course.

I love that cartoonist! He cracks me up.

My own experience with Christians judging atheists goes something like this:

Christian: They want anarchy! They want pedophilia! They want the destruction of all that is moral and pure!

Me: Do you know any atheists?

Christian: Uh, no.

Me: Yes, you do.

Christian: No, I don't.

Me: Yes, you do.

Christian: Who? Who's an atheist?

Me:

Christian:

Me:

Christian: Well, you're different.

Overzealous Christians (and those of other faiths) see atheists as evil the same way that people who honestly believe Obama is a muslim go on believing it - ignorance.

That's because most "true" atheists have nothing to prove and no need to yap on and on about it... it's like yammering on and on about not believing in Santa Claus or the Easter bunny... once I decided I didn't believe in any of this nonsense, there was nothing more for me to say.
