Atheist is not Antitheist by genkistamps Atheist is not Antitheist by genkistamps
You know. It dawned on me.

There are so few atheists nowadays. Where did they all go?

They've been replaced by antitheists.

There is a difference. And this is just my view on it; Atheists just don't believe in a higher power. That's it. They live their lives like God doesn't exist. They don't hate religion. They just don't participate and don't see a reason for it in their lives.

Antitheists are the raving lunatics that make up organizations like Freedom From Religion and spend every waking hour bashing religion and act like their shit don't stink while they act just as bad if not worse than the Fundies they hate. They harbor hatred for religion.

I like atheists. They're bros. Antitheists are assholes and need to stfu.

So take note, antitheists. Stop with the charade and just call yourself that instead of "atheist." You're giving all the good atheists out there a bad name.

Thank you ! Yeah, thinking that people shouldn't have a right to religion is being an extremist and going too far. There's nothing wrong with being religious and there's nothing wrong with being atheist. But there is everything wrong with saying "you're going to hell" for being atheist and demanding religion is 100% wrong and moronic.

To believe in god is impossible. To not believe in god is absurd.

Just don't shove your religious beliefs down everyone's throats and we'll be fine.

I dislike antitheists just as much as I dislike the rabid fundies.
Both can be close minded, bigoted and annoying.
On my profile page, I had a civilized debate, creatonist just stayed cool like me. that's how a debate should go.

(though when I checked his profile page, he did have some hateful anti-atheism shit)

Hey, you're right. I should start describing hateful atheists (<--use to call them that) as Anti-Theist from now on.
I'm Christian, and Atheists are good. But ANTI-THEISTS are just rude and arrogant.

I'm an atheist, and I respect Christians. As long as they don't bash ME for being atheist, I am perfectly cool with THEIR religion.

If fact, I am raised in a christian family, and when I told my mom that I was an atheist, she respected my opinion, and I respect hers.

I KNOW RIGHT?
Some people say they're "Atheists" because they hate God. But atheism is not hating God. It's just not believing He exists.
Hate towards God is called anti-theism,as you've said

Anti-Theism is hate towards Theism (usually, Christianity in most cases). Misotheism is hate towards God.

I've been raised so out of touch with religion that i was actually shocked when we had religion in school and i thought 'people actually belive in this kind of stuff'.
I still respect people for their belives i just can't take them this serious in regards of it.

Someone finally knows what they're talking about, I hate how people oppose atheists like they've just murdered someone or such. Literally I told some kids from my school I was one and they just started shoving questions like, "You don't believe in God?" and stuff. Ah, My brother did the same. It seems like everyone is just enslaving themselves under this person, or creator called God. Oh well, It's how life goes.

Oh, I spoke to an antitheist once. He sounded so disparate to prove me wrong, that he would've stabbed me if we weren't online.

Thats just how his tone sounded, though.

I talked to a reglious person once, and the same thing happened.

I wasn't trying to bash him for his beliefs, but I was very peeved at him because he was degrading my favorite characters and making them cardboard cut-outs to push his reglion down people's throats (and he pretty much spelled out that all atheists must died in a pit of fire and then denied it in his reply).

I said multiple times that had nothing against his reglion and would be just as upset if those characters were used to promote atheism (which I am an atheist btw).

And I can link the whole conversation for proof.

Been reading the comments and, as an Atheist, this is what I would have to say to a Christian:

"I do not respect your beliefs, but I do respect your right to believe them." 

It plays on the whole "You have the right o believe what you want, but you don't have the right to be correct."

I completely agree and what this artist doesn't understand (referring to genkistamps), is that religion in reality is what is bashing us. We are simply retaliating for all the hatred re receive from "raving lunatics" we are being atheist not antitheist, that's not even a word. We fight for what we believe. So stop telling us to rot in hell or to repent, if you do, guess what, we will stop.

I'm not sure that I agree that Antitheist is "not even a word". I mean, I'm an Atheist, but I am also an Antitheist. Antitheism is being against the idea of believing in a deity or deities, being against organized religion, or being against both. Personally I am against both, but I am not vocal about it. It is personal. At my core, I am opposed to Theism and organized religion, but I do not go out Christian-bashing or engage in ad hominem attacks against Theists. I am simply against it. Atheism is too simple a term to encompass my actual position on religion. That is where Antitheism comes in. You don't have to be an obnoxious douche bag to be an Antitheist, although many MANY are obnoxious douche bags.

Most atheists aren't antitheists today. The antitheists are just the loudest. I myself as an atheist am perfectly ok with anybody believing whatever they want as long as they don't harass people or stick religion into politics.
