I did it again, I asked simple, very simple questions of some atheists. I was attacked, repeated ad hominems.
I was threatened with being banned from the web site. I have been blocked, but I was told that “You did it to yourself.” I don’t remember blocking my account.
All of my questions were ignored.
How is that open discourse?
I had this similar conversation with several atheists years ago, when I discovered an old friend had moved from Fundamental Christianity (his words) to ‘normal’ atheism. The latter was not so much his words, but his attitude about his belief.
I found that atheists who grew up outside of church tend to be more open minded. And those who grew up within the church tend to be more close minded.
Every atheist I have met from outside of Christianity calls my description similar to what they have seen.
So, why do so many atheists from within the historical framework of Christian families grow up with so much more anger?
I do not know, but I ask the question.
