A Quiet Normal Life

21 April 2013, 09:19
Dear Agnostics, Fundametalists, Darwinists, Atheists, Worshippers, Believers, Scientologists and what have you

Just a quick breather for you from your otherwise incessant bickering and battles to be seen as superior from one another.

The internet in general, MyNews24 in particular, is a free for all. The majority of us would have it no other way. You two groups, of course, want it "your way" alone. The similarities between you don't end there, of course - far from it.

The special type of religious person (any / all faiths) that posts here can be most tiresome. All rational, normal people would I imagine have no quarrel at all with you having faith in a concept that gives you peace and guidance. Rational, normal people who do not share your faith could walk by you and your places of worship without a second thought. It would be most appreciated by the silent types here, far too fearful of a flood of comments, if you could please see your way to stopping asking questions of how we live our lives and seeing us as inferior. We are not.

The special kind of atheist (agnostic, etc) that posts here can be most tiresome. Rational, normal people would agree that if your views on evolution and how we came to be here were investigated, then the scientific knowledge would be both interesting and beneficial. Rational, normal people would, however, quite like it if you would consider stopping assuming and stating that you are somehow intellectually superior because you walk around saying "I am an atheist", like we are supposed to be impressed or give you a certificate or something.

Both of you are adamant that you are correct. Both of you have a special set of rules that one simply must abide by if one wanted to be a member of your clubs. Both of you insist that you are superior and better than either each other or anyone else as a consequence of this. Both of you, in that last point, undermine the point of your view, for surely the conclusion of either is "thus all of humanity was created equally". 

Both of you are a rather loud minority. The majority of users here, I would suggest, simply live a quiet, normal life, sharing thoughts and feelings on random yet important things that involve neither of the big white bearded men you both worship, be it God or Richard Dawkins.

Far be it from me to suggest either one of you is wrong or right, and I would not dare dream of telling either of you to shut up. the vague insecurities you display in your petty claims of being superior are far too fascinating and often amusing to most of us, long may they continue. Just please kind of consider, via either evolutionary or creationist means, stopping this nonsense of claiming superiority of us on the other side of the coin that both of you are clearly on.

Carry on........
