    I used to read Richard Dawkins, so its not like I'm scared of the militant atheist type, or antitheists a-la Hitchens...
    I simply reserve the right to logically dismantle the essentialist modernist paradigm they are so eager to sell when we're in an argument.

    So then we can re-conciliate like a good, french postmodern couple with "Well, you are clearly the incarnation of the Other - as am I to you. Let's flip a coin and whoever wins takes the garbage out."

    "Neurotic, ha!"
    I let out a scornful laugh.
    "If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm neurotic as hell.
    I'll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days.
    "

    To be clear, I am NOT saying all Atheists are that closed minded/condescending... just that all I have personally met are...
    This.

    Also, they'd have to be willing to put up with my sporadic attempts to convince them in the importance of religious thought to humans and the development of modern human thought, much like my attempts to convince them that elevators are inherently unsafe, that clocks with hands cause time to stop existing, and other energetic moments of random enlightenment.

    EDIT: So basically, if they can put up with me being a water spout of nonsense and pseudoscience that directly challenges their science-laden worldview, then sure! I'm game!

    Seemed like a good moment to bump this thread.

    Good thing you bumped!

    And yes, I'll marry an atheist - they come in different flavours....

    You're probably going to spot more trends in why they are atheist/theists than trends in whether they're theistic/atheist.

    Sure, just as long as their views aren't as strong as "burning in hell" as some Christians seem to like to spout.

    I'm not religious myself, so yes. Likewise, I'd happily be willing to marry a religious person so as long as they understand and respect my lack of beliefs (or at least very minimal amount of beliefs) and that I know they won't try to impose it on our future spawn. And I wouldn't try to force my atheism on my kiddos, either. Let them choose what they wish as long as it doesn't lead to the destruction, hatred, oppression, or injury of others.

    Oddly enough, all the NFs I know in real life -minus my Pagan friend- aren't religious...Huh.

    Edit; And if I married another atheist, I'd still at least expect them to respect religions, or at least the daily ceremonies. By that, I mean I don't want them to give dirty looks to people who pray or even go out into the forest and perform spells, like my friend does. When I do visit a person who happens to be religious, and they want to pray before eating, I have nothing wrong with it. It's not harming anyone, so let it be. Plus, it's their house.

    This same basic rule would apply to my kids and such. I'd be pretty upset to hear about them being rude to somebody for being different or who does things differently.
    people who expect a change
    who can't throw away their humanity
    who stay idle in growth
    who won't dirty their hands
    those are the most terrifying of monsters

    Yes. I'm INFJ and not inclined towards worship of a deity. I am very interested in existential, philosophical (metaphysical) matters. Even different religions, in a purely intellectual way. But not life viewed through the sole lens of a single religion with a code I must live by. (Prob best for me to end up with a fellow, curious minded non-believer).
