Stamp: Don't be a dick, atheists. by 8manderz8 Stamp: Don't be a dick, atheists. by 8manderz8
I get that it can be frustrating to talk with theists about religion. Really, I do. I do it almost on a daily basis.

One thing that's common that I've come across is the idea from atheists that theists must be completely stupid to believe in X, Y, or Z religion. That's simply not the case.

There are plenty of vastly intelligent theists out there. Francis Collins for example. He's an Evangelical Christian... and he was also the guy who led the effort to complete the Human Genome Project.

Anyway, this stamp... I just wanted to throw it out there, because atheists tend to do this thing where they treat theists like they're complete morons just because they believe in something we do not find rational. You're not gonna convince anyone about your opinion by pissing them off, that's all I'm saying.

Bg: Me! :D Woo! Clouds! Yay!

I am a Christian but I think it is rude how you are treating them, Yes they are a little wrong in the head, but most had something go on in there life, I have a friend who doesn't believe cause his dad is a drug dealer!!!!

thank you for this stamp. 

i believe in god (catholic), and i've had atheist and agnostic friends. we never said that the other was wrong/stupid just because we have different beliefs.

but when i was in high school, a childhood friend of mine who was an atheist went and said: "you believe in god? seriously? but you are so smart!" 

i was taken aback, and felt sad. never thought that having faith in god would make other people question my intelligence, or my sense of tolerance. i don't think that people who believe in god are wrong. i don't think people who don't believe in god are wrong. we are just people who decide what to believe, right? 

now people who use their beliefs, theist or atheist, to shame, hurt or mistreat others, are another story.

I don't think theists are stupid.

I think that people who always try to force their subjective point of view onto other people are stupid.

If you do stamp requests, I wanted to know if you could make a stamp that says, "Depression and mental illness is NOT an accessory you show off at school, nether is Religion and Atheism, so STOP treating it that way."

Don't say something Offensive about a Religon

If [extreme] athiests claim to be "the paragons of absolute intelligence," than why wouldn't they contribute to the world in a positive manner instead of bitching about how fucked-up it is in the first place?
