I have a couple of times come across people who call themselves agnostics. They are most likely agnostics but what is bothering me about these particular agnostics are they try to claim moral high ground.
They think agnosticism is the middle ground between theism (belief in gods) or atheism (lack of belief in gods). The fact is that agnosticism does not say anything about belief.
It is about knowledge if there are any gods. Which I do not have but I do not believe there are any gods.
So I am an agnostic atheist.
People who say they ONLY are agnostic should get off their high horse and actually find out if they are atheist or theist.
Not take some fake moral high ground.
I do not know if I should laugh or cry.
I stumbled across a website for Christian Children.
And this was they had to say about atheists,
“If you find an Atheist in your neighborhood,
TELL A PARENT OR PASTER RIGHT AWAY!
You may be moved to try and witness to these poor lost souls yourself, however AVOID TALKING TO THEM!
Atheists are often very grumpy and bitter and will lash out at children or they may even try to trick you into neglecting God’s Word.
Very advanced witnessing techniques are needed for these grouches. Let the adults handle them.”
I do not know if I should laugh or cry, but it is more sad than funny. This kind of indoctrination, trying to teach children that just because someone has a lack of belief in a deity or deities they are grumpy and would even consider hurting children.
I could not care less what religious people want to believe in, but when they try and impose stuff like this onto children that has not developed critical thinking, then I am disgusted, and I might even go so far and say that such people should not be allowed to be near children.
Religious indoctrination is borderline child abuse.
