True, at least they ask me the best questions about my religion (Christianity). They don't just ask the most common, and easily disputed questions. Some of my best talks about religion have come from atheists because I have found that they are the most unprejudiced. I think that this is because they can step back from religion better than most, and go about thinking reasonably.

The best questions express a sincere interest in learning from others so as to expand one's knowledge. This R&S forum seems to have a low percentage of questions of that type. Unfortunately, a high percentage of questions from those who claim to be atheists are simply (1) statements with a question mark added at the end, and (2) irrelevant questions starting with the words "Spiritually speaking,", and (3) mocking judgments of others and other examples of bigotry and intolerance that do nothing to help public discourse and the quest for knowledge, and (4) are failed efforts to express their own inflated sense of superiority. Theists are sometimes guilty of similar patterns but in our studies of R&S postings for six random blocks of time during the month of November found that this happened about three time more often among atheists than among theists. (More detailed statistical analysis is still underway.) Our study found that large numbers of "rants" attributed to atheists (self-proclaimed) during certain periods, almost as if it was a kind of "outbreak". We've yet to determine what provokes or encourages these "rant rallies" among the atheist contributor. Theist rants do occur but they seem to be more isolated and not part of a series (i.e. outbreak).

fake. 'clever' is a term it is complicated to qualify and complicated for human beings to agree on that is meaning. surely, that's a consensual fantasy who's 'certainty fee' is a blend of subjective definition of what 'clever' capacity and semi-purpose interpretation of attempt outcomes. On a written attempt, it could look quite purpose. yet what in the adventure that your attempt isn't written ? What if that is no longer consistent with parroting truthfully quantifiable solutions ? A kata in karate or a overall performance on degree as an occasion. Then too, there is what do you propose via 'atheists' and 'Christians'. those 2 words are , in some techniques, obscure. Atheist can propose 'individual who believes there's no god' or 'individual who feels that there's no longer a god yet won't say that he's familiar with for specific'. Christian can propose 'every physique who calls himself a Christian' or 'complicated center creationist large literalists' (meaning there is possibly in basic terms one or 2 on the completed Earth for the reason which you will could believe that the Earth became flat and the middle of the universe). Then too, what do you propose via the pluralizing of 'atheists' and 'Christians' ? Do you propose that the completed IQ (or notwithstanding) of all and sundry who's atheist could be extra up and in comparison with an identical score for Christians ? Or do you propose the traditional or could I in simple terms %. 2 atheists and a pair of Christians and ask them a knock knock comedian tale and who ever laughs gets it and is as a result smarter ? in short, the completed ingredient is in simple terms too services to different meanings to in basic terms say "it is genuine.".

Fail. Reason for failure: Violation of Atheist code 417.1.3, section IV. Use of the words "reasoning" and "Christians" in positive relation to each other.

I can only imagine a Christian giving an answer like "Atheist questions are inspired by the devil" or something along those lines.

I'm usually more appreciative of atheist's answers, but I wouldn't say that they're always the best. :)

Let Go, Let God.
True. I love challenges. False. Pathetic blasphemy, at times.

False, because it's impossible to make such a generalization. Sorry.
