Prompted by the disbelief of one of our members that atheists would ever visit a theist site, I created this poll.
I voted no but I should not have because I have many friends in both the Unitarian and very liberal Episcopal Church. I occasionally visit their Facebook pages because my friends post on them. For example one of them has a pantry and household goods project that I occasionally contribute to.
I like to examine ideas different from my own. I don’t have the stomach for an awful lot if it, but I think it’s good medicine, so I make myself look for the few gems of wisdom there, just as I find the occasional few here (without the stomach problems, so I spend more time here).
I have visited theist sites, but did not stay long, because I am not interested in starting conflicts, and I found the content so utterly banal, I soon got bored with it. Maybe that shows a lack of tolerance, because of course some of the content here can be dull, but I put up with it until I find the gems, where dull content would probably turn me off a theist site within seconds.
As to a site similar to this one. If I knew where there were some, I would probably visit out of curiosity, but I really don't know of any other sites like this, even for atheists/agnostics, it really is a wonderful, and as far as I know unique, creation. Even the Facebook site I was invited to visit by a member here was uninteresting, but then I find Facebook itself hard to like.
I am sometimes offered theist videos on Youtube , but again since I find the arguments just banal rather than challenging, I don't watch long.
There seem to be some platforms where right-wing Christians tend to gather.
Incidentally, I find it peculiar that when 'religion' is mentioned, it is automatically assumed to be Christianity (and possibly Islam?) and no other religions are mentioned.
I have recently found a space called 'divine atheist' within Quora, where, unlike Agnostic.com, theists come on to ask the atheist members questions and decent discussions often unfold. I find it healthy.
My Dad's side of the family are Catholic, Dad was an atheist. My twin is a religious person and has always maintained contact with the aunts(there is still one living) and cousins but that is not the only reason I am not friends with her on Facebook. Many of them tend to be racist and bigoted.
No I have no need to visit a theist site.
I don't really know what a "theist site" is, or what I could possibly have to gain by going there. People here make ridiculously illogical arguments, and they aren't even saddled with the need/desire to justify nonsense in a holy book. Can't imagine how fallacy-laden the posts would be on a site specifically for theists to talk about theist things.
I find it easy to believe that theists would think that atheists would visit a theist site.
Because they don't really think atheists are real. They think atheists are people who only SAY they don't believe in God because they're mad at God or (and this is the crowning turd in the water pipe) "just want to sin".
It makes me want to ask them if the kool-aid tastes like horseshit.
