What would be the point of pretending to be an atheist.
So as not be identified as being on the same ethical and
intellectual level as some of the theists here.
First off, the concept isn't new or the least
bit implausible. There's no shortage of white
people calling themselves "Black." One of them
was found heading a chapter of the NAACP not too
long ago. There's a flood of people calling
themselves "Gay" or "Trans" who are strict heterosexuals.
You name an identity, some dipshit out there
thinks it's cool to adopt it no matter how
inappropriate it may be...
The collective has frequently provided motive in
(it's) stating that atheists are "blah-blah smarter"
or otherwise superior... according to *This* poll or
"Atheism" is a magic word, apparently, and if one
recites it, like a witches incantation, they will
be magically transformed into Albert Einstein.
Or so the collective insists.
Also, the collective seems to think that it's
somehow getting even with their God by denying
it's existence. Sort of, "I'll show Him for
ignoring my prayers and not getting me a pony
on my birthday..."
Real mature, that.
Finally, talk about "Narcissists," SHEESH!
Some dingbats claim that if something doesn't
make sense to them -- as the extremely close genetic
cousin to a Chimpanzee -- then it would HAVE TO
make perfect sense to an all seeing, all knowing,
all powerful creator God. So, if they think something
shouldn't happen, and it does, that means God can't
THIS IS A VERY COMMON ARGUMENT!
And you can even point out to these wingnuts that
children can't see the sense in things like going
to bed early, eating yucky veggies or receiving
painful inoculations, but adults can, and an adult
human is infinitely further removed from an
omnipotent God than a child is from an adult... but
it won't help. Not against a Narcissist.
In their minds they ARE God!
So that's it: A little stupidity and/or mental
illness and you've got way more than enough motive
for people calling themselves atheists when they're
There was never any shortage of motive.
