It would be better for atheists to be known for their love of knowledge and reason not their hate for the contrary.

If the Believing-Borg (SnowLeopard collective) wants to find epithets for atheists they will have to do better than "NOTHING-worshippers" as that simply indicates a lack of understanding of atheism - or grammer. Atheism is the state of "lack of belief in gods". Not "worshippers" of anything.


P.S. Nicely said Wade. It reminds me of "I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours." - - Stephen Roberts and of course " . . . the more we learn, the fewer gods we need. God belief is just answering a mystery with a mystery, and therefore answers nothing." - - Dan Barker
