Atheist Meme of the Day: Disagreement /= Superiority

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

It’s possible to disagree with people without thinking you’re smarter or better than they are. And that includes disagreements about religion. Most atheists don’t think we’re better than religious believers: we simply think that, when it comes to the question of God, believers are mistaken. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    if we say it eno…ugh times to enough people, it may get across.
    Is that supposed to just be “enough”? Not sure why there is the ellipsis.

    Fixed. (That’s what I get for copying and pasting from Facebook.) Thanks!

    I think (and I can only surmise since I can’t read minds) that most atheists probably do think they are superior in certain ways of thinking, and striving for “objective truth” at the expense of social convenience.
