There are plenty of other sites for that kind of discussion. It's nice to have a place of our own
This site is specifically made for atheists...
Carrie, the big reason that I can argee with you is that believers want to do special pleading to convince you of their god. Imagine the argument where our universe is in one fish bowl and everything about god is in the other fish bowl. Somehow god can go into your fish bowl and never leave a trace of evidence that he did. PRESTO! The believer thinks he has proven his god to be real and there's nothing you can do or say to make it otherwise. Who wants to always hear all the variations of that noise?
I guess that unicorns really do live in your shoes.
Boy, do I hear you! I'm a quilter, machine embroiderer, etc. and the groups I belong to are filled with women (mostly) constantly blessing everyone, wishing everyone a blessed day, asking for prayers for everything from finding missing scissors to ill family members. If they want to carry on this way I wish they'd find their own non-crafting groups. And I'm so tired of the discussions about whether their dog who has "passed" will join them in the afterlife! With all the TV news stories featuring dogs, commercials with premium choice cuts of organic foods for dogs, and the money spend on them, I've gotten to the place where I no longer want to see or hear about dogs either let alone god! At least they don't talk about the latest celebrities on these sites, for that I am "thankful". I'm turning into a curmudgeon!
We can do that elsewhere. This is for atheists to talk. A place to be comfortable. We don't want to be on christian forums now do we? No.... There's no purpose.
