    Really? You really wanna fire this up again?

    1. Pamphlets. A good way to disseminate information. As a religious indicator...not so much. The last pamphlet left on my door was for the Schwaan man.

    2. Billboards. I saw one today with a picture of a puppy that read :"I'm cute, but the microbes in my poop aren't. Scoop the poop." Seems like another way to spread info to me. Religious, nah.

    3. Door to door knockers handing out pamphlets. Oooh. A twofer. I've never actually had an Atheist knock on my door to hand me a pamphlet, or for any other reason. We tend to sleep in on Saturday and Sunday. But that'd be a pretty committed Atheist.:rofl:

    4. Conventions. Star Trek, ComiCon, Door to door Kirby vacuum cleaner sales conventions (where they hand out pamphlets) 'Nuff said.

    And now summer camps, because like minded people would never wanna hang out together and do fun things.

    I actually would never go to one. Atheism is probably all I would have in common with the liberal idi...umm...I mean people that would attend.

    Atheism is not a religion. It is the antithesis of religion.

    I understand the thought. Being a conservative atheist myself, I kinda know how it puts us on an island.

    So, Atheists are just Jahova's Witnesses that decided they no longer like God, but they want to keep the routine?:supergrin:

    I still don't know what to call myself. A "conservative Atheist" is kinda a contradiction in terms since so much of conservatism relies so heavily on religion. Yet, and I know JBinTX will hate this:supergrin:, I have more in common with conservatives than I ever will with liberals or even moderates.

    So all you theists, I'm right there with ya, till ya get sidetracked on that religion controlling people thingy.

    My stepdaughter used to date my best friend. (I married an older woman and my friend is a few years younger than me, puts them fairly close in age, if you were curious.)

    Anyway, she's an Atheist also, and my friend is a lapsed JW. (so lapsed in fact, his family disowned him, there's some tolerance for ya)

    Anyway again, when they became engaged (for a very short time) the running joke in the family was:

    What do you get when you cross an Atheist with a Jehovah's Witness?

    Someone who will knock on your door at 7am on Saturday for absolutely no reason at all.:supergrin:

    If atheism is a religion, then what do they believe in?

    Don't tell me what they don't believe in, tell me what they do believe in.

    For atheism to stand on it's own as a religion, you should be able
    to define it without mentioning God or criticizing other religions.

    Now tell me what atheists believe in?

    Atheism is just as much of a religion as Not collecting stamps is a hobby.

    Those techniques work for anyone, regardless of religion or lack of it. Did you think religions had a copyright or something?

    Expressing your secret desires now? After your anti-gay rants some have to wonder?

    Nah, I just have that effect on people. Just look at CavDoc's obsession with me. I'm completely straight, but seem to be a lightning rod for pent up and denied homosexual desire.
