Unlikely Allies by Aonon Unlikely Allies by Aonon
As an agnostic/atheist, I really do feel bad for rational Christians. I really do. They probably hate zealots even more than the rest of us. And rational Christians are the kind I can get along with. Because despite their faith, they are willing to accept and acknowledge scientific reality when the need arises. Also, they rarely try to damn me to hell for not being Christian.

I don't hate fundamentalists, I hate fundamentalism. "Hate the sin, love the sinner." Ignorance and denseness aren't really sins, per Se, but it's the same principle.

Finally, someone who understands what it's like to be a rational Christian on the internet. Just because I'm Christian doesn't mean I disregard every piece of science ever, hate all non-Christians, think creationism should be taught in science lessons, don't want medicine, and am generally retarded. Why is 90% of the internet religious and Atheist so confrontational? People have different beliefs and disbelief's, I accept that, so should everyone.

I think much of it has to do with the fact that humans are biologically programmed to have a tribal 'us-vs-them' mentality. At one point in history, that ensured survival. As a species, we have outgrown our need for it, and in person such an attitude has become a detriment. But the internet provides anonymity, and you can be free to say things you wouldn't dream of actually saying to someone's face.

Everything you said in the descriptive paragraph is completely true. (People like the guy on the left are called fundamentalists, by the way.)

But is the guy on the right supposed to be a blind Illuminati or something?

I am atheist, and i agree this is a problem. By the way, it's not hard to find fanatic atheists that reminds those not rational christians.

That's why i no longer judge people because of their faith, but because of the person itself.

As a Catholic, I agree with this. Fundies are the worst.

"You're gonna burn in hell cause even though you're a good person who helps others and is caring and donates to charities, you don't believe in God!"
This is basically what they're saying. These guys make others believe all Christians are like that
