Is Islam as kookie to atheists as Christianity???

Hi, new guy here. Non-believer. Just curious if I dont see it or just dont find it... Does Islam and Alla and such get debated/disproven as much as Christianity? Actually, there are many religions I dont see alot of debate on... Is it just me, or do many religions escape the wrath of an Atheists' Logic?

The fact that the majority of members here live in countries that are dominated by Christianity is the main reason you see far more debates on that than on other religions.

Also, the majority of former theists here were originally Christian, so that is where more of the expertise falls.

But, we are equal opportunity anti-theists. Bring us any religion and we'll take a stab at it.

ntele,
Hitchens tears all religions new assholes in God Is Not Great (though where he found space on the wide-goetse corpses of godiots for new arseholes I'll never know).

Sam Harris saves his sharpest criticisms for Allah-loving jizzsmokers.

PZ Myers nailed a magic cracker and a Koran ... and so forth.

And this happy hell-hole you stumbled into doesn't discriminate on the basis of creed. You'll find mostly jayzus-bashing because most of us went through indoctrination as pups, and also because most of the theists who cruise here are jeetards. Poke around around and you'll see the rare Jizzlami doesn't escape unscathed, nor do bobble-headed crop-circling Nostradumbass crystal-worshipers.

Hmm. What exactly is "Athetist Logic," and how does it differ from the logic to which theists subscribe when they are not engaging their faith-based beliefs?

Do not Christians scoff at the very notion of an alleged paradise in which Muslim martyrs are the automatic beneficiaries of 72 comely virgins upon their earthly demise? What logic do these incredulous Christians employ to maintain their skepticism?

Islam, like all religions, is nonsensical. It is as evil as Christinsanity. I think the blood drinkers have just had more time to sow their seeds of darkness, harvest the crop, and let the wine of their delusional intoxication mellow with a few thousand years. The head choppers for Allah are still in the infancy of their insanity.

Both of these disgusting religions are as wacky as crack. We chew the Muslims to tiny bits if they happen to wander onto our humble forum. We just don't have many visitors. Islam has around one billion slaves. I'm guessing only a handful of them know how to read and write. That might explain it.

Here is one thread by a little assclown for allah called ESM. We roasted him and ate him.

No, but given a chance they might blow up your fucking house or cut off your head.

Muslims are like Christians from 300 years ago. Atheists are what happens in another 300 years. One day, after we're all dead, saying "my grand father was a christian" will be like saying now "my grandfather was a grand wizard". Unless you are harry potter, that don't sound too good.

You can always turn tricks for a few extra bucks. If looks are an issue, there's the glory hole option, but don't expect more than ... tips.

Hmm, I think you answered your question!

My comment on atheist logic was just an invitation for you all to comment. As far as "logic to which theists subscribe when they are not engaging their faith-based beliefs"... I think if their are 2 different pools of logic a theist can drink from depending on whether their topic is belief-related or not... It just indicates to me that either one or both of those pools are filled with Shit water!!! And they dont mind drinkin!

Hey thanks to all that welcomed me and commenting! I hope to stick around!!!

Perhaps. But you sidestepped my question altogether.

Since you coined the term, it seems reasonable that you would provide a definition when asked for one. So what is atheist logic, according to you?

I see. But many of us here would also have commented on something that made sense. Without a definition, we're left to ponder what you meant when you made reference to atheist logic.

You ain't sayin' a lot here that makes any sense.

Nah. I'm pretty forgiving on that front since I'm often challenged in that area myself. Thank ye imaginary gods for editors where I work, or I'd be out of a job.

What bugs the shit out of me are bold assertions with no attempts to back them up with, at least, a of couple of coherent facts. How the hell does one blithely make accusations about alleged atheist logic without explaining what one means? It's rude, I think.

If this is another underage troll, well, I'll take that into consideration. However, I do wish the parents of these miscreant brats would do a better job monitoring their kids' leisure time activities.

Edited: In retrospect, maybe I'm being a might too testy. As I said, I'm bugged by terms like atheist logic, probably because it sounds like something a theist would say. Looking at his introductory thread, it appears our new member wasn't necessarily making an accusation.

Well, I would like it to use more colorful font, like PanAtheist, to supplement the hyperbolic punctuating. I am more visually oriented than others...

We know, Kate, but no one here will ever match the dazzling heights of your abilities when it comes to illustration. Smelly comes awful close on occasion, though.

Oh, wait! I still haven't figured out how to post pictures without major hassles. Never mind.
