    Reality is never dickish.
    That isn't dickish what is being dickish is someone thanking God for someone beating cancer against the odds or losing a battle to cancer and saying they are in heaven now and someone saying a snide remark about it. What is dickish is bitching about people hammering their beliefs into others but doing the very same thing like somehow being the bigger asshole will cancel it out. That last one goes for anyone.

    What I always found annoying was people who are atheist treating being atheist like they are part of an organized religion.

    I begin and end my day in prayer. Can't profess to know for sure who or what I'm prayin' to but I'm prayin' as hard as I can.

    It just works for me. Just sayin'.
    If everyone had this attitude all would be most excellent.

    Here's an idea, why don't people thank the doctors and the modern medical technology that actually allowed them to beat cancer, rather than thanking some imaginary father figure in the sky? It bothers me when people misapply their gratitude. How many times have you heard someone get in a car accident, then thank God that they survived. Funny, don't remember God showing up at the scene. I do remember paramedics, ambulances, firefighters, doctors, nurses and tons of modern medical technology that actually saved their lives, but instead, they thank an imaginary friend. Go figure.

    What I always found annoying was people who are atheist treating being atheist like they are part of an organized religion.
    You'll find lots of atheists, myself included, who agree with you. There are others though who want to be part of a community and I really have no problem with that. I think ritual and the like are a part of many people's lives and just because they've done away with religion, some people still want to retain that aspect in their lives. I don't agree with it, personally I'd rather spend time around people who actually share interest in things I actually do, not in things I absolutely do not do.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Exactly I truly believe only people who are members of DP should be allowed to vote in polls.....You might see a whole different total.

    By the way welcome to DP we always can use another Conservative to fight the evils of Liberalism.

    Prove there's not one.
    Hmm I actually took the question the other way, I thought he wanted you to prove you were not God.

    Actually just counting people who are members of DP, the poll numbers is 26 yes, 33 no. So, only three people not a member, or logged in, voted so far.

    I don't have to, any more than I have to prove there are no unicorns. You're the one making the claim, it rests entirely on your shoulders to prove your claim is true.

    Until you can do that, there's no obligation to take your claim seriously.
