A very common misconception among theists. We don't hate any god. You can't hate what doesn't exist.
EDIT for 9082365:
If you want to know what an atheist is, ask them. Don't listen to the person preaching in the religious building of your choice. They have a vested interest in putting down and slandering the movement community.
Are you sure you want to go down the path of what's "absurd"? I really suggest you don't reply to this unless it's in the Soapbox.
If you want to know what a Christian/Muslim/Woman/etc is, ask them.
Too often the news only reports the weirdness and so if you never take the time to get to know other people you'll judge an entire religion/race/gender/etc on what the stupid media tells you to believe.
There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.
That mouthful of c**k is starting to make you dribble.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
"I believe in some deity, therefore I am mentally and psychologically superior to those who don't" really doesn't wash -- especially given that the most spiritual and poetic people I know (and I know a lot of writers and poets) believe that there is no deity.
Take it to the soapbox; I've had enough of reading religious supremacist cr@p in the Lounge.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
Atheists caught up in the physical aspects only (proving God exists with science), which misses the point.
Again, you have some misconceptions.
We're not trying to prove (or disprove) God at all. Theists are, and failing miserably at it. We just ask the questions.
The whole thing comes down to this. If you're going to try to make laws and force everyone else to live by what YOU perceive as Gods word, YOU better bring some damn good evidence to the table for proving it is indeed Gods word and not mans. That's where the theists fall flat on their face. In order to prove it is Gods word, you first have to prove there is a God. Then you have to prove those words came from God.
