    I am trying to answer this question myelf--is it because we want to be proven wrong?
    Or we have not "experienced" the kind of life changing experiences that believers have?

    What do you think? It does not seem logical for athiests to hang around a board constructed for theism, at least to me. Maybe atheists are demon possessed!!:evil:


    By the way--how can you tell if you are possessed by Demons??:tongue:

    It is a target rich environment. I'll make you wish your only problem was the devil.

    For the same reason Christian missionaries tend to live around pagan villages ;)

    It's a religion board. Atheists have something to say about religion. It's also an ethics board here. Atheists can discuss ethics as well.

    It's a bit like asking why a pacifist would hang around a board about the Iraq War.

    I think the reasons vary dramatically for many

    Some are hungry and seeking, some are spiteful, some are curious, some come in the name of satan, I think it varies.

    I think they hunger for some kind of spiritual connection, yet can never find it because they're looking in all the wrong places... like message boards.

    Loved the story about the group of nonbelievers in California who bought a billboard to promote atheism. Which means they've now become the thing they've always hated the most... organized religion.

    In answer to your last question... how can you tell if you are possessed by Demons??

    If you voted for Obama, there's a pretty good chance you're possessed by something. Demons or dumbass, doesn't really matter which. ;)

    Religion is phylosophy so it's pretty much in the eye of the perceiver. Few 'facts' to muck anything up. It's always a nice thread for shallow enders to play around in.
