I have been debating posting this, as I know I might be (excuse the language) “crucified.” But, I really don’t think it’s a free-thinker’s, Atheist’s, or non-believer’s best interest to call a person, who follows religion or believes in creationism, a “religitard” or “creatard.” While it is true many theists do say some of the most ridiculous things, is insulting them really the best way to get our message across? As an Atheist, I want this movement to grow. I want the world to be free of religion and all the pain it causes, but insulting a theist or creationist isn’t the best way to do that.
I’ve learned, from many conversations with Christian friends, that one conversation with a theist isn’t going to convince them of the fallacies and errors in their religion. But, I try to stay away from insulting them. And you might say “Well, it’s because they’re your friends.” That is a valid point, but insulting them won’t make my message any clearer or get my point across any better. The way someone goes from theist to an Atheist is by questioning their religion. All it takes is one simple idea, and they will eventually start questioning their religion
