Atheist Meme of the Day: Atheists Know What Atheism Is Better Than Believers


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 makes no sense for religious believers to insist that they know what atheism means better than atheists do. If you’re saying “Atheism means X,” and every atheist you talk to says, “No, that isn’t what it means at all,” perhaps you ought to listen to what we’re saying instead of to your own preconceptions. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    Someone will inevitably answer that atheists do this all the time to Christians; and, well, it is partly true. We’ve all seen it happen.

    I like to add that this not only applies to believers, but also to Agnostics – specifically the “we are better than atheists because they are dogmatic and we are neutral”-style Agnostics.

    And how about the ones who refuse – they REFUSE! – to believe that I am, in fact, the agnostic atheist that I am?
    Hell, I love those people: you simply can’t buy that kind of comedy.

    You need to link to the video of you doing the cooking at the bloody baby barbecue from your facebook page.

    I just stumbled on your blog today and it is refreshing to see an atheist blog. I hesitate to say but in many ways it feels like atheists are the most persecuted ‘religion'(but maybe that is just based on living in Florida where it is practically a crime to not be religious).
