Are you an atheist or an anti-theist?


A hubber started a forum in which he described him/herself as an anti-theist. I think this is very different from an atheist, which is just someone who doesn't believe that God exists. The prefix anti means to be proactively against. How can we be actively against something that does not exist? I'm not a Christian and I am not trying to challenge anyone with this question. I've just never heard anyone call themselves an anti-theist and I'd like to get your opinions on this.

    I think what Susan B. Anthony was talking about was ego. And ego is the heart of selfishness -- the source of all evil, not just religious evils.

    Oh, BTW. Science could use a better paradigm -- one without the bias of doubt. Simple restraint and humility would work, but ego doesn't like humility.

    I won't be so quick to call them out as fools, considering most of them that I've seen have somewhat valid reasons to oppose religion in general. Labels as subjective usually don't reflect the true nature of someone anyway.
