what's your religion?

Talk about things other than video games. What are your other hobbies? What's your favorite TV show? Are you into sports. Any recommended restaurants? Do you travel?

I've been an Atheist even before I knew what an Atheist is. I don't broadcast or talk about it though unless I'm asked and it's usually a short "Oh.. I'm an Atheist." The reason why I don't discuss it much is because religious people tend to think it's a challenge to dispel that disbelief to the point it's get tiring and somewhat pushy and insulting. Oh, my mother is an overly devout Christian, just imagine how that conversation went.
Not to disagree with you but atheists tend to do the same... condescendingly even. I always read or hear people say religion is the root cause of all conflicts, creationism is stupid, etc...

Of course you're right. It works both ways as well. I do know one Atheist like that. But I'm talking of my experience though. Perhaps when I was younger I was proud like that, but now I feel like a seasoned tree that could bear anything silently. There's still pride, but rarely in a public setting.

For me, the root of all trouble is focusing on one's self with no regard or empathy for anything else.

..and people look at you in a strange way if you say that you dont believe in a higher being. :shock: And the devout ones use that belief of yours as a way to personaly attack you by saying stuff like "kaya siguro hanggang ganyan na lang ang buhay nyan" or "kaya siguro hindi sinuswerte sa buhay dahil hindi naniniwala sa diyos" etc,etc...

pfft, hypocrites.. :lol:

I didn't disagree with what you said, just added something to it. Of course each person has his or her own experience with how others condescendingly question his or her beliefs. You probably hang out with old people too much. I have atheist friends, some are preachy, rest are assholes. They insult and use terms like fairy tales, and fictional characters like Santa Claus (not referring to the saint), and the tooth fairy.

If you backread, you'd read the same kind of condescending terms such as blind, demon, etc.

I did and I read it before so there's not much to talk about. If one's a believer or non-believer their whole life then I don't see why proving one's point will ever change the other's perspective.

What I dislike are those fence jumpers, those that doesn't have a belief of their own, those "I went Atheist for a bit but now nagbalik loob ako" and vice versa. Those people I avoid like the plague. I feel like they're treating the whole thing like a trend.

I know what you mean. Haha! Maybe they really have a change of heart. People grow and not just by their age but through experience and environment. It'll be hard to discuss about that objectively because I doubt there's reliable statistics about it.

Also, see above image. That's what I'm talking about.

Eclipse 2018: Supermoons may spark ‘BIBLICAL year’ with the second coming of Christ

THIS year could be biblical according to Christians because two supermoons may spark the second coming of Jesus Christ.

By SEAN MARTIN

PUBLISHED: 16:43, Tue, Jan 30, 2018 | UPDATED: 16:49, Tue, Jan 30, 2018

Christians believe the upcoming super blue blood moon which will dazzle the skies tomorrow, January 31, along with the supermoon that kicked off the year on January 1, are signs from God that 2018 will be a ‘biblical’ year, as it also marks the 70th anniversary of the birth of Israel.

Believers in Jesus Christ and God cite Israel as the Holy Land.

In March 1948, Israel was declared as an independent nation following the Second World War.

Christian conspiracy theorists are now saying the events are lining up in what could prove to be a biblical year.
