Why do so many of you think that all atheists think alike? Do all Christians believe the same things? Can one speak for all?
People do not even agree with one another about what they mean by God. How can you determine what an atheist is if you don't agree with what God is?
No one knows another person's pain in any exact way, we only know what we might feel in the same situation. We do not know what others mean by their theological ideas, we can only guess. I suspect most folks have only a vague idea what they themselves mean by them.
It is one thing to judge the words and actions of others and another to demonize them based on what you think they might think. And that works both ways.
Whatever happened to the right to one's beliefs?
