The posters to comment, please
Circumstantial evidence? How about the hard evidence YOU provide that Muslim propagandists are confrontational because they are taught by their religion to be confrontational?
Actually, I'll take that one back for now and instead perhaps look at other evidence that might explain your confrontational motives of glorifying Islam by condemning other religions.
I understand; if one would have read Quran intently with the context only then one could quote it; otherwise one could not of course.
Nonsense, it has nothing to do with that at all.
What it has to do with exactly is the confrontation being observed from you where you deliberately and intentionally denounce another religion in order to praise your religion with the continuous flood of Islamic propaganda.
How did I know paarsurrey wrote this hub just by reading the title?
A true atheist is Parr. He doesn't understand what the word means, despite being supplied with the word's meaning and entomology.
In denying other people's religions he is the most adamant atheist on here!
Confrontational? Only to irrationality and idiotic gullible people who are uninformed.
confrontational or direct? (as opposed to aggressive/passive aggressive)
From my perspective the person who opens one inane thread after another for no reason other than to justify the abusive nature of their own chosen religion by blaming others who believe differently are the ones that are confrontational.
Hmmmmmmmmm. sound familiar?
If the person is a true Athiest, NO not confromtational
They simply have no concept of God what-so ever and are void of thoughts on it. if they are attacked verbaly of course they will answer, its natural to do that anyway. Defend yourself. Most go on and give it no thought.
Paar, you are very agressive and confrontational in your posts on this forum - does that make you an atheist?
That's a good question Marissa had. Is your confrontational manner due to the 'peaceful' teachings of your religion? (I put peaceful in parenthesis because when I use that word in reference to anything within Islam it has to be done tongue in cheek)
Ah, so you're not sure? An agnostic, perhaps!
Well, we're done here. Glad we cleared that up! Who's for drinks?
Like all atheists I live in a flaming church, so it's probably better if it's yours. My pad's a bit... hot.
Good old aussies, any excuse for a cold tinny.
Yes but I wouldn't call the fizzy stuff they drink beer. Served up ice cold because it doesn't taste of anything.
Every beer expert in the world would disagree with that.
It is nectar from the gods.
I am, it's bloody lovely outside! And it's pretty much a holiday now anyway.
Mine's a pint. Fancy a glass of orange juice Paar?!
OK. First, I think you might be using 'friend' in the loosest of ways here. Secondly, that statement about atheists appearing to tend to be confrontational was a joke paar. Sheesh. Must you use everything to its worst advantage?
The purpose of this site is discussion. Of course it will be confrontational at times. It would be impossible to discuss different viewpoints if you weren't willing to accept a little confrontation.
Actually, if we look in history, Christians seem to be one of the most confrontational religions. I wonder how many people the popes either killed or ordered killed.
I guess it would depend on how much responsibility they took for deaths inspired by their words and deeds.
Most recent history would give the honor of most bloody to Islam.
147 million people have been wiped out by Islam in the last 1400 years.
Is that figured from the time of Mohamed until now? Or are those recent figures?
More people are killed today by Islam than all 350 years of the Spanish inquisition.
and I was wrong, the figure is an horrific 270 million people.
Well, yeah. I had read that 128, 000 were charged by the Inquisition and about 2000 executed. I'll check out that site. Sounds like they may have different figures.
Edit: oh my gosh. That second link is horrendous. What a bloodbath. I had no idea the numbers murdered in the name of Allah was so high.
Yes it is horrific. That's religious "love" for you!
You know. I've always argued that it was more politics than religion. But I'm reading a book right now called 'God is not Great'. Its an eye opener for me. This guy writes to speak to people like me. I guess I've been looking at the whole issue topsy turvy. I thought the whole problem was just Islam. I am beginning to see now how bloody the third world is due to religion; all the way around. It's all so sad.
I met an Albanian at a beef festival a couple of years ago and his story of their war brought me to tears. What they thought were friends became enemies over night. Neighbors killing neighbors. It's unfathomable.
Australia is filling up with people escaping religious conflicts around the world.
I have a friend in Australia with no arms.
A group of religious nuts cut his arms off because his sister refused to be raped by a bunch of fanatics and he came to her defense.
She was then tortured and killed in the name of their god.
People are savages, that's for sure. It is, of course, better in our countries, but the possibility of it is still there. One thing I've never understood about intolerance in free societies. They keep finding people here. Second and third generation immigrants, that seem to have a sympathy with that mindset. I can't understand why. It's like no matter how much peace, or education, is offered there's something primeval inside us. I've never quite gotten a handle on what drives it.

I just started a forum looking into the subject. It was great and polite but the discussion veered into all about people who believe in God and how that is fallacious.Here I hope we focus on the atheist. Can the atheist actually know something that is not empirical. For this discussion let us...

Whether religion/God is real or not, i‘m sick of these fanatical soul destroying atheists who try and shatter any hope or peace of mind out of believers. What is it? Pure envy that you have no faith? One atheist once confessed that the most depressing day of his life was when he realized there...

Why are some Christians threatened by Atheists?Atheists are not a particularly large or unified group, so why is there this impression (in religious media and discussion groups) that atheists are a threat? Usually it comes in the form of questions like "why are atheists so mean?" or...

What do you think of Richard Dawkins?Dawkins has become the fearless leader (so to speak) of atheists by forcefully attacking religion in all forms. Some atheists love him, some don't, some ambivalent. Believers are certainly not keen on him, as he can be rude and brow-beating towards them. What do...
