Atheist Meme of the Day: Don’t Start Arguments You Aren’t Willing to Have


Scarlet letter Today’s Atheist Meme of the Day, from my Facebook page. Pass this on; or don’t; or edit it as you see fit; or make up your own. Enjoy!

It is not fair or reasonable for religious believers to get into debates with atheists about religion… and then accuse atheists of being rude, intolerant, negative, or close-minded for debating back. If you don’t want to hear your religious beliefs criticized, don’t start arguments with atheists. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    Some theists are so accustomed to irradiating all sundry with their idea of god, and so sure everyone else accepts it, that they are incapable of recognizing that their regular assertions about god initiate debates.

    llewelly, good point. Dan Barker said that he firmly believed that if you sat next to him on the bus, then it was because God had led you to him to hear his message.
    I like this meme, though.
