Back in the day you could see signs from time to time, not too frequently, but every once in awhile, about "no proselytization" - and you see these on a few businesses or even a sign near someone's mail box or walkway. But in the day salesmen were more common. Door to door salesmen were primarily what was spoken of. You'd have soap salesmen, or vacuum cleaner sales men, or what have you. These are people not promoting any religion, and it was well-understood that no proselytization mean no salesmen allowed.

So what do atheists do to allow themselves exclusive salesmanship? Well, they've played around with definitions and have come up with their own. In their view they aren't proselytizing even while they are pushing their views. Kinda weird isn't it? But that's kinda the way they do things. It's win-win for them, and even if that means messing around with definitions and pulling fast ones.

The definition is quite clear...proselytizing mean promoting con religion which is of no value.

Also, the signs people posted on their residences and businesses
were much likelier ti say "no solicitors" or "no soliciting."

This firm will sell you various kinds. I like the one that
exempts Girl Scouts selling cookies!

In some jurisdictions, someone who ignores a sign like that can be
cited for trespassing. We don't have that here, nor should we
need it. Simply pointing out the FAQ to "first offenders," who
will politely restrict their posts to on-charter discussion
afterwards, lurk until they figure out what the group is for,
or even leave in a huff, shaking the electronic dust from their
virtual sandals, should be enough.

Instead we get pinbrains spending close to 2 decades emoting
about their imaginary Sky Tyrant. Talk about needing a
massive LART application!

The Cat-Herding Rules and Regulations of alt.atheism and Some Information


1. All are welcome in the newsgroup, whether they're atheists or not, as long as they are not trolls.


2. Proselytizing of ANY religion is NOT welcome! (Those guilty of this bad nettiquette will be treated as they deserve!)


3. This newsgroup exists for atheists to discuss anything of interest to them and other atheists, although others who are honestly interested in joining a discussion and are not trolls are welcome. Trolls will be treated as what they are.

Nope, as you can see above, it simply says proselytizing of any religion
is NOT welcome. That doesn't forbid it; it's just not wanted. And anyone
rude enough to go against our FAQ/Charter is admitting that they are very
rude trolls. And, as trolls, they deserve whatever treatment they get.

near The Great Litterbox In The Sky. You'll be head down in one of the stinkier sections one day, Andyroo.

3. This newsgroup exists for atheists to discuss anything of interest to them and other atheists, although others who are honestly interested in joining a discussion and are not trolls are welcome. Trolls will be treated as what they are.

If you want a group where theistic ideas are not allowed,
then you need to have a *moderated group*.
Nope, as you can see above, it simply says proselytizing of any religion
is NOT welcome. That doesn't forbid it; it's just not wanted. And anyone
rude enough to go against our FAQ/Charter is admitting that they are very
rude trolls. And, as trolls, they deserve whatever treatment they get.

Atheism isn't a religion. It's the lack of one.
Yet in the same FAQ, our atheist friends say that they have
their very ~own deity~ !
"alt.atheism also has its own deity: The Invisible Pink Unicorn"
~ from alt.atheism FAQ
It's in the alt.atheism FAQ.
Says that they have their ~very own~ "Deity".
Thus showing their allegiance to a religion of foolishness.
Hmph! My newsgroup deities are Si & Am, the Giant Siamese Cat gods who reside
near The Great Litterbox In The Sky. You'll be head down in one of the stinkier sections one day, Andyroo.
Thus showing that you wouldn't recognize satire or parody if it slapped you across the face. The idea is to show you how ridiculous religion is. That whooshed right over your head.
Post by Andrew
Any other religion they say is, off charter.
Please show anywhere that Si & Am and the IPU (BBHHH) are really worshipped.
Anyplace that isn't a satire.
It is.
A satire. Yes, it is.
Post by Andrew
Which demonstrates their exclusiveness and unwillingness
to examine evidence to the contrary. Which itself would be
evidence that atheism is a deception, and that there actually
is a most awesome Creator..
---> GOD.
Thus those who fight against the truth, have been exposed.
Nope, oh whooshful one. But, we already knew that your sense of humor
was crippled before you ever slithered into alt.atheism, Andyroo.

With web forums, you have to log onto each different one, but with
Usenet the stiff you subscribe to, just arrives.

When Usenet started, its subscribers were expected to have a certain
etiquette because it was the province of universities, research
institutions and computer manufacturers, and this was enforced by
sysadmins - until first AOL and then Google opened it up to the
general public and let them get away with anything as free speech.

saying that it is "off charter".

Which is evidence that at least some atheists cannot
defend their beliefs against the light of truth. Which
would be evidence that--->*theism* is the real truth.

Therefore if theism is the truth, then that means there
is a God. This is what happens when you foolishly try

it's a joke.

You know, as someone whose go-to "defense" against any science he

"fantasy" ... well, I really don't think you want to start a
discussion about being unable to defend your beliefs against
truth.
Post by Andrew

Nope. That's like saying your inability to disprove
evolutionary science thereby proves the truth of evolution. Your
failures don't prove the truth of evolution. They merely prove
how little you know about it.

Similarly, being unable to prove that there is no deity in no way
proves that a deity exists.

Let's see you prove there is no intelligent life on Proxima
Centauri B. Because if you can't prove there's no intelligent
life on Proxima Centauri B, that is evidence it must exist.

By your brand of "logic" anyhow.

"Therefore" indicates "If A, therefore B".

Yes, he is. Probably, Arthur Tandy (Joe Bruno) is too. His
narcissism, his lack of empathy and his single-minded
hatred of atheists and desire to prove that we're terrible

Back in the day you could see signs from time to time, not too frequently, but every once in awhile, about "no proselytization" - and you see these on a few businesses or even a sign near someone's mail box or walkway. But in the day salesmen were more common. Door to door salesmen were primarily what was spoken of. You'd have soap salesmen, or vacuum cleaner sales men, or what have you. These are people not promoting any religion, and it was well-understood that no proselytization mean no salesmen allowed.
So what do atheists do to allow themselves exclusive salesmanship? Well, they've played around with definitions and have come up with their own. In their view they aren't proselytizing even while they are pushing their views. Kinda weird isn't it? But that's kinda the way they do things.

The FAQ/Charter says no proselytizing any religions. Atheism isn't a religion. It's the lack of one. Try again, beanbrain.
You do have a religion. SM. Plus your religion is humanism. See Humanist Manifest I. That's what you believe, every cent of it.

Back in the day you could see signs from time to time, not too frequently, but every once in awhile, about "no proselytization" - and you see these on a few businesses or even a sign near someone's mail box or walkway. But in the day salesmen were more common. Door to door salesmen were primarily what was spoken of. You'd have soap salesmen, or vacuum cleaner sales men, or what have you. These are people not promoting any religion, and it was well-understood that no proselytization mean no salesmen allowed.
So what do atheists do to allow themselves exclusive salesmanship? Well, they've played around with definitions and have come up with their own. In their view they aren't proselytizing even while they are pushing their views. Kinda weird isn't it? But that's kinda the way they do things. It's win-win for them, and even if that means messing around with definitions and pulling fast ones.

You again. No, atheism and Humanism are both philosophies. Since I am a
Secular Humanist that means that atheism and Humanism are combined. Plus,
there is more to humanism, none of which is religious. Religious Humanists
merely add their religion to the Humanist philosophy. This definitely
improves the religion.

Go on and sputter, John Monkeyboi.

That's simply a pretension who's function is to relieve the atheist from justifying his position that God doesn't exist.

They try to have it both ways.

That's a lie. You have beliefs and you exercise them that are in either total
agreement or total opposition to that of God. If you love, clothe, help, give,
feed others, you are engaged in Christianity.

Umm, no, duke. There are plenty people who love, clothe, help, give, and feed others who aren't Christians. You don't have a monopoly on good people.

That's right, but they are following the teachings of Jesus Christ without
realizing it. It's what God calls all mankind to do - love one another.

FAITH (without deeds is dead faith):
Mat 25:31-46, James 2:26
Feed the hungry.
Clothe the naked.
Give drink to the thirsty.
Visit the imprisoned.

Heal the sick.
Cast out demons.

What is proselytization anyway?
...attempiting to monger god crap in an atheist news group where it's
not wanted is a prime example. End of discussion.
