As far as I know, it only happens to Darwin fish.

It happens with anything that clearly identifies the driver as an atheist. A lot of people still really really really hate us.

I wouldn't really advertise it like that in the first place, but still.

About how much would that be USD

About $200 USD give or take. Google says $170.

Buying cheap clothes means you win? I bought a $13 shirt which I think looks pretty nice. But I bought it because it looked nice. Not because I'm so arrogant I won't pay good money for good clothes. If I can't find a cheap pair of shoes that look nicer than a more expensive pair I'll go with the more expensive pair.

You clearly haven't looked at enough shoes since you think they're all neon coloured. I think neon coloured shoes are ugly and showy yet somehow I still manage to find good, moderately priced shoes.

It depends on why they're cheap. When I buy cheap clothes, they don't feel as good and fall apart fast. There's not a lot of point in saving that money unless you really have to because you're just going to be buying cheap clothes more often. Either that or you have to wear worn out shit that was low quality to begin with.

I like to pay a moderate price for good quality and a little more occasionally for something that I like a lot.

Or you just don't care about what you wear. People try to phrase this so many different ways. But all it really means is you either don't know enough about clothes to purchase good ones or you don't take pride in your appearance. Some people just don't mind what they wear which is fine but if you try to say that you're a man because you don't care, you're not and you're insecure as well.

This is why I find it hard to believe if he's being completely literal and without hyperbole. I doubt that the "full retard" kind of mentally handicapped people really have the capacity to ponder about existential subjects like religion and atheism and the like.

I my proof is the average internet goer.

There's a difference between ignorance or plain stupidity and serious mental defects. And if you're diagnosing people over the internet, that's just silly.

But of course, there are lots of atheists that are dipshits, especially the teenage variety who are trying to be controversial, contrary, edgy, etc. And I've known plenty of religious people that are quite intelligent.

Maybe people are just sick of people thinking Atheism makes them so much more entitled than the rest of the World. Reject reality? She was being edgy. One of the reasons I dislike religion because it causes unnecessary hate. How are you making the World a more peaceful place if you threaten violence for your cause. Fucking 12 year old. You think you're so entitled.

They are nice looking shoes, but expensive. If they said "Atheist" on the side they'd be better.

Your sweeping generalization makes for a very convincing argument. It's really cute, actually. News flash, EVERYTHING causes people to hate. And while religion is a notable example it is by no means unique in this respect. This hate is the result of any sort of existing group. Where there are insiders, there will always be outsiders. We're naturally predisposed to hate things that are different or contrary to our own understanding. This hate you point to principally lies not in religion but in our capacity and tendencies in socialization as humans, and for that we only have ourselves to blame and improve upon.

Also, whatever about the shoes. I wear pony shirts in public sometimes so I won't judge if people want others to think that they're probably an edgy atheist prowling the streets to flaunt their USI on unsuspecting believers.

News flash, yes it does. Religion is notable because it causes people to unnecessarily hate each other more than anything else in life, in general. It's astonishing how in this day and age it's normal and accepted for someone to hate another individual based on their opinion on faith, or none at all. So much for opinions being respected - religion is apparently an exception.

I already stated that religion is a notable example. Even if your unfounded claim was true, this does not make the reason behind it unique. And let's not look at how it keeps families and communities together, no. Let's just conveniently focus on the negatives because we're obviously trying to be objective here. lol.

This is true on all sides, which supports what I've been saying earlier. It's better to hold ourselves accountable for our decision to hate other people rather than, say, God and the beliefs that he is affiliated with. Also it's really not that surprising at all.


Happily ETS'd.

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.

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.
