Fundamentalism is an attitude trait, so there are may be about as many atheist fundies out there as religious ones. The only thing that changes is going from 'holier than thou' to 'smarter than thou'.
I like this quote...
andthat's kind of what I mean, instead of just running up to someone and saying "I'mma wanna tellay bout jesus" I ust decided not to be afraid to tell someone about my faith, and help them understand.
to be honest there are those who give the faith a bad name (westbrough) but the core is true.
I actually love to learn about people's faith, it's best to ask them about theirs politely before telling them about yours, I've heard some crazy things. let me list a few
"god is an alien from Rotta 8"
"the government invented religion in the late 70's"
"cuthulu is coming back in 2012, I bought a slutty black dress for the occasion"
I calmly explained to people where there is a error in their logic, then professed my own belief. more rational people seem to understand better.
I am a student of history, and I never understood some of "The Old Ways" not modern neo-pagans who are a totally diffrent pot, met a person who claimed to worship loki once. I pointed out that according to norse legend Loki turned into a female donkey and slept with a construction mule to prevent an ogre's castle from being finished. Odin slammed him underground in torment for taking it up the ass...
the man had no idea... did research, and stopped worshipping norse gods.
I think much of the world's suffering is due to ignorance or learned ignorance, and I want to aleviate that as best I can with good discussion.
