Where are the atheists to bring some sense of rationality and reason to the forum?

Come on people! Make your voice heard!

Umm... here?

We have a pretty vocal presence on this forum already. Even further, even though this is quibbling too much, it must be stated that atheism does not equal rationality and reason, and that there are some "woo" atheists who have their own personal absurd beliefs.

And, of course, here and there, religious people occasionally display rather strange ideas.

you want the strident Atheists thread. Also while I have you, can you explain why your posts sound like the emperor from starwars?

And why do religious contributors sound like wookies ?

Atheism is what gives MasterJedi his power. It's an energy force created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.

Atheism gives nobody any power. It washes away false senses of imaginary power.

They do, quite a lot actually.

Maybe you should appreciate the atheists you have.
You could know philosophy as well as AG
Or political/economic theory like Master Pendant
Or with appreciation of Jewish history and culture like Ruveyn
Or you could argue from experience like LKL
Or with conundrums like Fuzzy
Or with reductio ad absurdum like Sand
As far as I can tell, all of these people argue more forcefully and with more quality than you do.
Sorry if I left anyone out.

And with all that intricate intellectual capacity how many minds have moved even a nanometer in any direction?

^^^^

You are assuming that your position is correct. I personally do not think it is; that does not mean that I do not appreciate your intellect. Also if they did, how would you know?

I'm not assuming anything. Merely looking for signs.
