I don't know any Satanists but i wouldn't be surprised if they were very different.
    ah do you know the definition of dogma? Because if you did, you would know it makes no sense to apply to an atheist.
    Dogma is a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true.


    Man you have some interesting conceptions of atheism. Atheism is just disbelief.
    as for the rest, that requires another thread.

    Having a religious experience is simialr to a sexual experience in the sense that it really difficult to explain to virgins. In this case the atheists are the virgins.
    LOL That's a good one. Having a psychotic episode is hard to explain to sane people too.

    Dogma doesn't have to be laid down by an authority. But it is authoratative. Is presented as incontrovertibly true without proof.

    a belief or set of beliefs that is accepted by the members of a group without being questioned or doubted


    Dogma - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    I separate atheists into two camps, the "normal" ones and the evangelical ones. Evangelical atheists share many of the same attributes that you see in extremist Xtians and Muslims. Different side of the crazy coin.

    Holy smoke. A thread about a satanist statue turns into a bash discussion of atheists? On what planet is the worship of satan as a god relevant to people who don't believe that god(s) exist in the first place??

    Actually it really is just disbelief.
    There is nothing to stop someone who is atheist to take it to the 'next level' and declare 'there are no gods'. And you would be right, it is a truth statement about about one of the competing claims regarding the existence of gods.
    I don't think most atheists will go there, not any more. Atheists don't need to go there. Whether they disbelieve theistic claims or there are actually no gods it amounts to the same thing for atheists.

    I think we really need a different word to describe the people that make an affirmative statement of belief that gods don't exist. Anti-theist? Non theist? Otherwise you have the same word designating 2 separate stances.

    Comparative religions. I tried to tie it together with my watching-basketball post. There's obviously intercepting attributes. Many atheists have more baggage then what a disbelief in something would carry. Some aren't even even truly atheists - they're simply anti-deist or anti-Xtian. As are Satanists.
