    Feel free to worship. But don't go looking for validation, it's your choice.

    Yeah, well generational warfare merely compliments all the other distracted squabbling among the hoi polloi while the .01% squeeze our remains.

    Look! Abortion!

    Likely, being in the trades, fred deals with a lot of people that want high end domestic shit, who are, given that as icemang sagaciously summarizes, older and likely b00mers.

    Irony, do you speak it?

    Not to say my generation hasn't blown it, but it has by no means any lock on selfish, self aggrandizing, overblown, whiney, obsequious, narcissistic, exclusive assholes.

    It has been said that you can't love your job, that it's a lie and impossible.

    The issue is not that there is a belief of no god, but no belief in a god. Of course it's not provable. I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the irony.

    I've been waiting for one of the Keebler elves to hop out of one of those boxes.

    Until that happens, I'm a non believer. And an agnostic.

    At this stage of life, I realize I'm not any good at thinking. But I still try.

    Now you're just making shit up to fit your narrative. Poor form.

    None of those instances are explicitly atheist, so those are bullshit examples, likely populated by religious types.

    You're confusing knowing with believing.

    People will claim the Nazis or Stalin were atheistic, which sort of isn't true.

    Nazism and Stalinism were cults of personality and hence a religion in itself and just as conflicted and...

    Have to be careful here distinguishing between atheists and agnostics.
    Agnostics believe that the nature of god, including the existence thereof, is unknowable.

    Another big difference is the levels of organization.

    Religions tend to be very organized, atheists squabble incessantly and recognize no imam or papal tree.

    Let's all try this on for size: skiers and snowboarders are stupid.

    If one is deft enough to distinguish between the opportunism of religions and the instances of faith, there might be some understanding. Otherwise, it's just comedy or compassion.
