    Why do Yall insist on ridiculing those who Believe in God and Or Jesus?
    I dont understand your thinking on this. Cant Yall just let em go on in their beliefs and leave them alone.

    Theres at least 5 of Yall that Try to tear some one apart when they say something , WHY?
    Do their beliefs Hurt you in some way?
    Take Food off your table? What drives Yall to do this?
    Thanks in advance

    I think you should name names; otherwise, this is like asking mexicans why all of them like to be in gangs.

    They know who they bare, Plus if youve been around YOU know who they are. What point would it make to name them?

    They think they are intellectually superior, so to prove it they try to tear down those that believe in God.

    They claim that Name, I didn't anoint em with it.
    Myself Im an Agnostic, I just dont understand all the tearing folks beliefs apart crap that they do.

    I'm in the same camp as you, just seemed like you were grouping all Athiests together.

    I'd speculate that this has to do with the specific people that are being referred to and doesn't really have anything to do with them being Athiest.

    ie: they probably react this way to most topics, not just religious topics.

    Typically, I reserve my ridicule for particular behaviors that are insanely irritating. By and large the majority of believers I know are nice and decent people, and I have no reason to ridicule them. That goes for any faith, not just christianity. I know quite a number of nice and decent muslims, jews, and hindus as well.

    However some behaviors are just screaming to be ridiculed. Those include:

    --People who see me as a "project"...who feel like they need to spend all their time around me trying to convert me. Granted, it's not very many people, but this one has to top the list. It leaves me thinking that they just want to be around me because they think that they'll get bonus points with god if they do convert me, and that they really don't care to be around me other than for the purposes of their religion. Bugger off. First, it likely won't work...I've heard all that **** a brazillion times before. Second, by their own stated logic of "I care so much about you I'd hate to see you in hell", the only proper response is for me to say "well, I care so much about you that I'd hate to see you waste so much of your precious short life on this planet believing in a bunch of nonsense, and acting on those nonsensical beliefs, such as you are doing right now."

    --The "It's all part of gods plan" business. The more I hear/see this thrown about when commenting on a particularly tragic situation, the more convinced I become that if this particular god exists, he is a grade A *******.

    --Wanting to teach creationism in science classes. The earth isn't 6000 years old. Get over it. No amount of shouting that it is will make it so.

    --The circular logic of :
    A)"It's in the bible so it must be true"
    B)"How do you know the bible is true?"
    A)"Because it's the word of god"
    B)"How do you know it's the word of god?"
    A)"Because it says so in the bible"

    These things don't apply to a large number of christians. I try not to lump them all together, because as I said above, I know a great many people of a large number of faiths that are good and decent people.

    I'm one of those lucky people who was actually given confirmation that there is a God. I already believed there was though. I surely wouldn't want to argue about faith. People are going to believe what they want to believe.

    I save my ridicule for those times when a position beggars common sense. Usually I'll just give 'em a link to a Carlin vid on youtube. FTR, I believe in God; I just don't wear it on my sleeve or ram it down someone's throat. I also believe He's sitting up there wondering how he could have created something so stupid, self-destructive, and self-centered as homo sapiens.
