There have been a rash of questions and answers lately from people (mainly self professing Christians) asking why atheists hate God, etc. Rather than listening to what atheists day and explain about themselves and how they view the world, it seems that some believers would rather make blatant assumptions and outright lies about atheists, becoming argumentative when an answer doesn't seem to be what they want to hear. I've seen some atheists do the same. Why ask a question if you just want to argue with whatever answer doesn't line up with your views or simply invent lies about others?

I agree. I think that if a person defines hatred as anything that disagrees or opposes their view, it's a very narrow and troublesome definition that can lead to unnecessary conflict.
JM: You know scripture says "You can't serve 2 masters, you either love the one or hate the other..." Lk 16:13. That's a believer's definition of "hate!" Why take it out of proportion? Remember the question came from a believer!
Ridiculous! I like to keep all the comments on my Hubs. Makes more money that way ;)
Your definition is incorrect. Without gods, not the assertion that there is no God. The test of your answer is an irrelevant appeal to ignorance. This is not an open forum for apologetics gymnastics.
J, this is your way of being a voice of reason? U want people 2 take what u say seriously, then I suggest u respect others beliefs and not be disrespectful
1. it did not answer the question. 2. It was a fallacy. Several of them. 3. I never claimed to be a voice of reason. 4. I do not have to respect beliefs in order to respect those who hold them. 5. My questions are not open pulpits. Next?
Hey, I just thought maybe u were wondering why u attract those that stir up trouble. Flies r attracted 2 one thing and if u keep producing it they will keep coming
This answer didn't stir up trouble. It just didn't answer the question. If you're trying to stir up trouble, it's not working. :-)
U answered rudely. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Just giving u a clue to your question
If pointing out bad logic and expecting people who bother to answer to actually answer the question rather than go completely off topic by preaching with multiple fallacies is rude, I can't help you.
I agree Julie - why is it being "rude" for you, but calling atheists conceited and implying we need to be prayed for not? I guess I don't understand why Christians aren't rude if they call us out, but we are if we do it? double standards.
I actually did miss the "conceited" part. My apologies
