Question for all the "Free Thinkers" out there
--There is one question I have. The reasons for christians to share their beliefs with people are clear. But what is the basis for athiests to reveal so much opposition (and alot of times anger) to a belief in God? Why are they so driven to prove to people that God doesn't exist? Is it a pride issue? They want to prove their intellectual superiority by trying to convince people that there is no God? Or is it every athiest looks at the big picture, and visualizes a better world without hatred, fighting, and death caused by religion? Not all wars are holy wars. Not all murders and hatred stem from radical religious beliefs. In fact, not alot of it does. Even if there were no religions, all that would still happen. So that can't be it. What is the purpose? And that general "to free the minds of those suppressed by fear of religion" excuse is a load of crap, so don't even try to use that. Why should athiests care if someone believes in God, which, by the way, Christianity seems to be the biggest target for athiests.... So what is it?
Oh, and another question.. Could someone explain specifically what it means to be a "Free Thinker"?
