I am a friendly atheist too but I still get death threats from other religions (mainly Christians). I like bringing up according to there book that killing is a sin.

I was an atheist myself and it just felt wrong to me, made me more depressed and suicidal, so I found religion. I thought, maybe posting under this stamp I could find some nice atheists. But, I see many under here who say they are friendly atheists and then passive aggressively in the next sentence attack religious beliefs. Which only strengthens the negative atheist stereotypes.

exactly :) it's great that somebody came up with such an idea
I am an atheist and I have moral rules
I do not need any superstition to know that common respect makes life better

I understand what you mean,buddy. Some other atheists I know can be pretty cruel to other non-atheists. There are people like that in religions too,I guess they exist everywhere.

yes, every religion (or belief, in general) has such people, and I truly despise them. but when it comes to religious zealots, I understood (but did not support) because many religious people refuse to think for themselves, they blindly follow. so it's more natural if they cannot stand other opinions. theoretically, atheists should be more thoughtful. that's why at first, I was very surprised to see such behavior.

glad to hear so! sadly, most atheists I've come across were far from nice. they tried to force (bully, if you will) me into accepting their views. this was not a behavior I expected of one who boasts freedom of belief.

of course, like all other ideologies, there are extremists who make the rest look bad. I just hope they're really as small as you claim.

Theres also the other part of us that comes off as hateful but in reality is not hateful at all. That is a larger part of the community. But yeah, there are few extremists in all religious and areligious groups. The number may vary, but its always the small part of the ideology that makes it look bad.

Well, to a lot of Christians, when one points out a mistake in their claim they can sometimes explode (or at least, the extremists). Pointing out the mistake in their claims however has nothing to do with actual hatred, rather just making sense of material from a different perspective.

For instance, I ran across this not very long ago. Somebody said that god makes lightning storms, since it doesn't many any sense otherwise. Another person said "Yes... Massive electrical discharge and thermal displacement." They immediately accused this individual as hating on them for pointing out the science of the subject.

Basically, what I am saying here is that while one may come out as insensitive to another's belief, they're just giving an honest explanation of phenomena in their own perspective. Its why a lot of people say Islam is sexist; it isn't at all though. Its only the extremists who are anti-theist.

Though, I think a better word than hateful would be impudent.

I'm not a Muslim if that's what you're getting at.
I've met friendly Muslims, Christians, Jews, and several of other faiths. sadly, all atheists I've met so far were anything but nice.

I am too! 
Even though, one of my friends are atheist as well, but she has so much negativity towards the smallests things in religion. If somewhere were to wear a cross, she would ask, "How can you wear them?!" If we would be talking about god, she would begin to get furious. I've been trying to turn her around on these things, but her apperantly, her mind (AND MOUTH) are stronger than her body itself

I'm afraid I'm one of the religious folks that have been around more nasty Atheists than friendly ones, but I'm willing to believe it's because the friendly ones don't talk much.


Anyway, I think it's good there's friendly atheists around, I try to be nice to atheists and people from other religions, and for *some* atheists to be nasty to me no matter how level headed I try to be is just...unpleasant (one guy who's an open atheist says that worshiping any religion of any kind is a "mental illness")

I mean, I agree that people have used religion to abuse their power, or for unjust personal gain, it's sad, but I know it happened, I don't tell Atheists that they'll end up in hell (I don't even believe that, I'd think it was awful if it happened), I'm trying to "do things right" when it comes to how I behave as a religious person, and it's not to get into paradise, hell, I'm breaking two or three of the commandments just by acknowledging that there may be other gods out there besides the one I worship and showing their followers and their places of worship respect.

But that just doesn't seem to to be good enough for what I hope is the vocal minority, and that's really frustrating ;-;

A large portion of us generally stay quiet. Its only the loud minority that is noticed most of the time; unfortunately, the loud minority is pretty toxic. Just like any other loud minority within a group of people, I guess.

Its a good thing some people out there have an open mind.
