You only have to look at yourself. A quick search shows dozens and dozens of threads, started by you, with 'atheism' or 'atheist' in the thread title. You're fixated on atheism and atheists, even though atheism has far less influence on the everyday lives of people in the United States than does Christianity.

Finally, as your final sentence tacitly admits, you've asked this 'question'* before.
Why do atheists post in the Religion and Spiritually forum?

* - It only pretends to be a question, actually being an insinuation that atheists are uncertain about their beliefs, which is as dumb as claiming that everyone who discusses communism (like you - love that search function) must secretly doubt capitalism.

You're lack of self-awareness is impressive.

If you say so, but it is marketed as a religion and spirituality forum.

The former is one reason. But I do not see many atheists wishing to rid the world of religion. It is to me sausage what other people believe, as long as it does not effect in a bad way me, my family or the world I am a part of.

If Iíve asked this question before, forgive me. I am simply perplexed.
Good point.

Also...why should I care about politics if I'm not a politician?

Why should I care about world events if I'm not the planet Earth?

Why should I care about nuclear proliferation if I'm not a hydrogen bomb?

All such silly concerns.

Evidently, how each governs there family/household bares inference on others, so it's never ending cycle unless/until we become homogenous.

Rafius, although I believe you mean the cat to represent the Atheist in the image, please remember cats held a high place of honor in Ancient Egypt, and what self respecting Wiccan doesn't own a cat?...

Rep point just the same for bringing in the boxing cat...

The OP whines about this regularly. Then he has his butt handed to him and he runs away until the next time he feels compelled to ****.

Apparently p-u-l-e is considered a bad word here on CD. It means:


/pyo͞ol/
verb
literary

cry querulously or weakly.

So basically, what we have here is yet another dishonest religious person.
