I don't think anyone will examine your shoes, it's just pointless.

Whatever someone is an atheist or religious I find annoying when people find the need to force upon other what they believe (or don't believe), and this is just dumb why of doing it since nobody except you and maybe few others will ever see it.

Why would anyone pay money for shoes that don't even have any designs on them? Since atheist means a lack of belief, then it doesn't make any sense to even have an organization for it. Of course, that might explain why there's nothing on the shoes, since they represent the nothing that atheists believe in. Honestly, you could do the same thing with religious people and have something that says you believe in God.

Why do they have to be beautiful and intelligent? Can they just be normal or just as caring?

Because I'm biased and actually referring to children I know and love.

There's a lot more negatives to religion than there are positives. People feel the need to use religion as some sort of guidance to keep themselves together, and it's become a subject that's so sensitive that if ANYONE has a different view on it, you're subjected to hate that person.

Fun Fact: Most wars in history have started because of religion.

Well of course I'm generalizing. It's a massive issue. Do you really think I have time to accurately depict the way in which religion is harming the Worlds intelligence? This is the BBS and I don't really care enough to go into the detail that is require to make this argument properly.

Relevant Neil DeGrasse Tyson wisdom.

Anyway, this is the kind of atheism that is partially responsible for why there's such a fierce divide between atheists and theists, why it's so difficult to have a civil conversation. It's not the only thing at fault but it certainly contributes. It just seems so ridiculous to me. We don't do that with most other beliefs. I don't know anyone who has don't believe in market regulations pride or don't stay in Afghanistan pride. But for some reason people seem to have don't believe in god pride as if coming to the conclusion that there's no god is some sort of accomplishment.

Then again, these shoes are just a business trying to profit off a social movement so I guess it's merely business as usual.

Only the act of openly telling in such a way makes you even a possible asshole. Atheist = asshole? Since when is that a thing?

Also, anyone who has under an $80,000 annual income who buys shoes over $50 for anything other than sports does not have the proper decision making skills to effectively form an opinion on religion. Dear lord.

Hang on a second, if you'd not cut out the bit where I said in so many words that buying such an expensive shoe might make you an ass hole, then you wouldn't have anything to say to me.

I'm asking when does being an Atheist make you an asshole? If we disregard putting it on a shoe. Because I'm talking about what HighWay said.

It doesn't, so long as they are respectful about it. Although these kind of shoes among other things seems to be a step in the wrong direction.

Well exactly my point and isn't it nice we can put that to bed.

My beef is with this illusion that all atheists are all unintelligible Dawkins wannabes, shouting and screaming. No, most are, and I am, very quiet about it, and had a long discussion at work the other day with a very religious man all about religion. We became good friends over it, I feel. Being an atheist does not equate to being an asshole. However I am aware that America may make the common atheist feel quite militant, which is understandable for a minority.

Yeah. The few athiests that I've met in real life are usually pretty mellow, but unfortatley the majority of the ones I know are online and are almost always assholes. I really hope most aren't like that out in real life.

And where I live, I've personally never seen discrimination. Atheist, gay, different religions, etc. So I guess I'm out-of-touch with the rest of American society.

I think that's just the general effect of the internet. When there's anonymity involved, people are more likely to be more brutally honest or just upright disrespectful because there's no social consequence.

I go to a very liberal college, and as a consequence, I know many atheists. Some are closed minded and difficult to talk to while others are more willing to have a civil debate. I don't think it's any different than other issues. It depends a lot on how the person handles debate and having their opinions challenged in general, which is related to who they are as a person rather than the issue they're arguing about.

And where I live, I've personally never seen discrimination. Atheist, gay, different religions, etc. So I guess I'm out-of-touch with the rest of American society.

As stated, I'm in a very liberal environment so I don't really see discrimination against gays and the like. Though, I do see discrimination against people who don't share beliefs. If you're too conservative around here, some people--not all--will to hold it against you. I'd say liberals and conservatives are equal in the proportion of people who are closed minded versus those who are open to discussion, just in different areas. Same with atheists and religious people.

You know. I don't really see this as that edgy of a thing to do. They're nice shoes and they mean something to whoever is wearing them. If you support Atheism it's not crazy to want to show that or even just express it in a very subtle way.

That's the thing, you see. Atheists in America are the minority I believe, and any minority is a pent up person who'll vent their anger online. In Britain atheists are never cunts about it, because they are quietly and happily the majority, and it is often the religious who get very inyourface about it. See what I mean? Only religious (majority) countries have people who hold the belief that atheists are 'assholes' - anyone who feels angry at the society they live in becomes militant. I'm sure in the early 20th century if the internet were like it is now, repressed folk then would be going crazy online too, behind any kind of anonymity.

Obviously only wankers take a single dimension of their personality and flaunt it in real life in a negative way, so ignore them in regards to all this. Unless you're actually Richard Dawkins then it's not really a wise way to define yourself.

I hope everything I've said made sense.

There isn't a need to do a whole shitload of things. I could spend a few hours typing up a list of all the incredibly unnecessary things people do, but I wont. There isn't a need for it, but people do it because they want to. Get your shit over it.

And god forbid if you were a shirt with an atheist / christian slogan on it, i'd vomit on the spot.

You're coming off as a closed minded wad who has a high moral rightness, and thinks lowly of anyone who doesn't agree with you.

You shouldn't be a visual advertisement for your beliefs.

And who the fuck are you to decide that?

It is preachy and often needlessly confrontational.

Some issues with confrontation too, I see.

Anybody who can be arsed to buy one of those garish little atheist trinkets probably has a cum stained copy of The God Delusion in their back pocket they'll whip out at the first hint of Christianity.

Still with that attitude of yours.

The religious shouldn't cram their beliefs down our throats by walking around with essentially billboards on their shirts or cars, and neither should the anti-religious.

WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU TO DECIDE THAT?

Again, nothing anyone does has to be for the entertainment of other people.
That is true, but other people don't want to be near assholes either.

Wearing a shirt that sais your an athiest doesn't make you an asshole. You're just a high-standard cunt who thinks such.

By the way, I also hate things like this. I can't stand it when someone wears something like this. But I at least acknowledge that it doesn't make them an asshole.
