Billy boy Walker sent me an email about what a great fun party he had on winder solstice and how the kind of pseudo witchie new ager types there are gaining ground and becoming the majority. That's supposed to make me despair and to "O owe is me, god don't exist becuase there's more than 3% of people who don't do Christianity boo woo I guess that means I'm wrong because I'm in the minority now."
Real actual atheists are still at 3%. liberal pastors and Eastern religions who mediate and seek nirvana are not atheists. Atheists are shrinking and dying out and going away. the influx of winter solstice, witchcraft and new age and eastern thought and Unitarians are not atheists. That is all just as scary to atheists as it is to fundies.
Atheist are fudies. The idea of spiritual people finding some truth beyond reductionism and scinece is just as scary to the atheist as it is to the fundie.
Some atheists see religous people as agents of big mean daddy snooks in the sky who wont let the corn hole and screw. So they hate God and that's why they hate fundies. They imagine that liberal Christians are just jumped up fundies becuase they are so ignorant, like Bill Walker, that they don't know what liberals are.
but people doing TM and having winter solstice parties are just as scary for the atheist ufndie as for the Christian fundie.
The atheist fundie imagines that truth is a matter of popularity, that's hard for them becuase they know they are not the majority so until they become so they have to live with total connotative dissonance. The imagine that Christians have the same schizoid messed up natures so they think I'm going to fall apart because some new age types had a good time over the holidays.
But I don't care. That Walker guy showed total absolute ignorance. he nas no clue at all what I'm saying or what I believe or how I feel about anything. It doesn't bother me at all that some people are into other things, I'm not the least bit afraid of witch craft. I've actually some pretty good friends who did witchcraft.
He has absolutely no idea where I"m coming from, but I do know atheism. He if he's a real atheist he's sacred to death of the kind of people claims to hand out with. Athiests are scared to death to even think for themselves.
