Some atheists also prefer confrontation to a genuine discussion of issues. Pity. As for
"imaginary adult friends", are you saying atheists don't fantasize?! Bummer. Why don't you explain the
reasoning behind your views and maybe we can learn something from you?

Gee...I don't know why I would have done that. Oh...I remember...it was because your "genreal views"
were in posts responding to what I wrote.
Sinbad posted a very thought=-provoking analogy- I simply commented that it applied to everyone, not just
Can you show me it doesn't, without resorting to generalities?
AvG is one of several places where we can tell it like it is. Whether you like to hear it or not.
And visa-versa. Although I might ask- again, you know nothing about me- might you tell me how you know what I "like to hear" or not?
Oh...it's that darn filter again...that's right!

"Freedom from religion after having been one of it's subjects allows one to then be objective about religion. "
Someone who used to believe a particular religion is the last person who is capable
of being objective about the religion. I used to be a Christian. That gives me some knowledge of what a Christian "typically" believes and even
some empathy about how deeply ingrained those beliefs can be. I'm not naive or arrogant enough to claim objectivity. I'm probably a little further
from objectivity than I would be had I not been a part of it. I was lied to while I was a part of this religion. Personal experience makes objectivity
impossible. You fool yourself if you think otherwise. Whether you can admit it or not, there is emotion being involved in a religion and even more emotion
involved in extracting yourself from it.
