Funny thing is, I would suggest that it looks like it was written as a "Christians guide to debating atheists". I've never met an atheist that was at least consider that they were wrong. They're just among the most arrogant people I know.

If aethesist are so content and convinced in their belief that there is no God then why not leave it at that and let those who have faith enjoy their belief system? Intolerance and hypocrisy perhaps, the same that they bash Christians and others of when they are reminded that some people have religious holidays and beliefs?

Got some real bad news for you, agnostics and atheists break those same set of rules set up in the flow chart. It has little to do with whether or not some believes in a higher being, it has to do with a person being to willing listen as well as speak during a discussion, Chirstians have no monopoly on hard headedness.

At least their arguments are usually based on logic and/or FACTS, rather than relying on faith and a book.

But yeah, these rules could apply to any side of a typical debate - muy funny!

Because atheists are content with co-existing. As long as you keep your religion and your morals to yourselves and out of our lives, then fine. That's not to say we won't engage you in debate, but we're not trying to force you into an atheist "lifestyle".

However, the fundamentally religious are very opposed to this concept of co-existence. They want to shove their religion and their believes down others throats and they have no problem using the force of law to do so. They have no problem trying to force people into living a religious or at least "moral" (as they define it) "lifestyle" - in fact, many view it as their duty to their God.



“No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered as patriots. This is one nation under God.”

-President George H. Bush

I don't really disagree much with that last sentence. Take me for example....when someone starts talking about their religion to me i just rudely turn my back and walk away.

So you're not far off the mark.
