    Yeah, well, I heard an ugly rumor that Atheists... almost every single one of them... DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD.

    Can you believe it?!?

    So much truth in this statement that it makes my head explode!

    --

    I've actually never had a problem with being called an atheist... with two notable exceptions.

    The first was when I was exploring religion and was in a pretty fundamentalist pentecostal group - and sorta dating one. They had high hopes of converting me, and certainly gave me slack for at least being around. It was hearing what they thought about others like me that gave away what they thought. Whenever I said that they were including me in that group, the response was mostly 'distance', or 'oh, I don't mean you - you are such a nice boy'. Which was true... I was a lot nicer than the believers. It was my first introduction to how strong cognitive dissonance can be.

    The second was meeting family from a few bible belt states. It is interesting to see nice outgoing people happy to see you... for days... then find out and decide not to acknowledge your presence.

    It helps that I live in a rather diverse city, however... I've heard some pretty rough stories from others.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    You mean, Oberon is implying that some Atheists may well believe in God, after all...

    It's fascinating!

    There's apostasy in every religion, Blacksie... even atheism.

    Question...

    Is a person claiming to have met God (and thus does not believe in God, but know in God) an atheist?

    See those atheists are all alike.

    Believing something is merely a prerequisite to believing in something. When my wife tells me she believes in me, she isn't saying that she thinks I exist.
