A few facts:
Atheism is not a religion, whatever college may have taught you.
Atheists don’t hate god. We also don’t hate the tooth fairy. Go figure.
One does not require “faith” to be an atheist. Atheism is, no more and no less, the lack of belief in a god or gods.
My atheism is not something that defines me. There is so much more to me than that.
It’s all well and good to declare that everyone should just shut up and believe what they want. I just find it amusing that in the next breath you pass judgement on them all.
You’ve already decided for us who and what we are and that the only good seat in the house is up on the fence. How about taking your own advice and shutting up about it now?
