I find, as a group, atheists are highly intelligent and I enjoy the mostly well thought out conversation threads. However, sometimes, atheists can be quite mean in their delivery. I've been on the receiving end of comments that were very hurtful. I would caution all those "meanies" to lighten up. Please don't perpetuate the "angry atheist" moniker. There are too few of us. Kindness is much more attractive.

Very well said Paulette. Let’s change the perception that’s out there.

There is an aggressive tendency creeping in of late. As you won’t get any meaningful discussion from them best to just block them. I promise you won’t be missing anything!

yeah, I agree, but i was uptown and i had to start listening to this woman telling me how I have "to get Jesus in my life"......yeah......right along with Popeye the Sailor, Superman....and Rin Tin TIn??? Oh how about Santa Claus? The imaginary friend who does everything for you. I just want to vent sometimes, i have to hear this crap from my 2 daughters......who's husbands are studying to be ministers. Also, they are right-wing republiCON, TRUMP HEADS too..... I don't get it....... and they're brainwashing my grand children with this bullshit......(NOTE: I didn't ram religion down my kids throats, I let them grow up and make their own decisions)

I finally met Raymond Moody too........which was very exciting for me. Sooooooooo I did have an "experience' when my mother passed on....but Jesus, and what I believed had nothing to do with it. Thanks for letting me vent.....

When Trumpsters call me nasty names for being a Democrat and feminist, I report and block them.

Personal attacks are against Agnostic.com Community Guidelines.

Brushes off hands.

My daughters are Evangelic idiots....TRUMPERS......and one of my son in laws carried a concealed weapon.......he is a gun toter....which doesn't make any sense to me. I tell you what, their Jesus Christ and Trump bullshit is so bad, I don't hardly want to visit them anymore. Bad news....I'm so lonely.....but I'd rather just be alone. No more church services for me and I will probably NOT go there this year for Xmas.....I like the tree and presents.....it's great for the kids, but I'm NOT a CHRISTIAN....and...I'm not an atheist either...... Xmas trees were started the pagans anyway.....if mention anything that is NOT in the Bible.....then I am satan.....

If I sound hurtful or angry I'm really just trying to tell it as it is. People get angry a lot these days.

I did take away some valuable lessons from my Christian upbringing. Mainly, devoting the time of detailed attention it takes to actually hate another person, who's not worth my time, is a waste of my time. Ergo, I hate no one. Also, being mean and angry will get you nowhere in the long run and cause those you can influence, or intimidate, by doing so in the short run to view you in a suspicious manner. I recently quit the popular social media platforms out of this frustration. Frustration caused by mean, hateful, small minds. I hope to find enlightened people on this sight. Your post is spot on, Paulette. Kindness is much more attractive.

I guess I do kind of hate some people. I hate the people that tell me I'm going to be put into the lake of fire forever and ever. In 94, 4 Angels appeared in front of me and told me they were gonna take Mom, and I could NOT go with her....(I was scared shitless).....Later, I asked them to do something very specific to prove to me they were real, AND NOT HALLUCINATING.......I wanted to talk about them, they were gorgeous.......well they did it. So the world can go fuck itself, it was between ME AND THEM......(yeah, I stayed out of the nut house)....
Yes, I get angry, I'm sick of hearing self-righteous Christians telling me that "SATANIC BEINGS" came and got Mom. Yeah....right "Satanic Beings'....got some news for you. You think this is it? You are in for a big surprise. Read BEYOND THE LIGHT by PMH Atwater. Read PROOF OF HEAVEN by EBin Alexander......he was a brain surgeon and died.....wow...what a book.

How dare you!!!!

The virtual world can bring out the worst and best of people. Sorry, you have been on the bad end on humanity. I fear this will only get worse and make more work for admin.

I agree with your post that we should be nice on here and not hurtful. I have received some unkind comments on here. I tell myself that they are entitled to there opinion.

Like any group there are considerate guys out here

Working on that. Depends how hard the other person is lying. That really sets me off.
In an honest discussion I hope I come across as polite.

I'm trying.
