Radio On

I didn't realize quite how misunderstood Atheists were. Almost as much so as African-Americans with no "black dialect".

This report on a recent American poll from this morning's NPR broadcast reveals some good news and also revealed some really stubborn American societal quirks. Hmmm...I know some people who may even refer to it as fascist sentiment.

  1. I am happy to hear that there is so much more understanding than in the not so distant past. But we still have a long way to go.

    I don't think many non-atheists have a clue as to the reasons for the way atheists think as they do, and few care. Personally, I feel every man/woman has to come to terms with his/her own beliefs and decide how to live their lives. My own prejudices are chiefly against prejudice. Does that make sense?

  2. I think we have to give Obama some of the credit for whites and blacks believing they share common interests...There are more African-Americans on TV, radio, and in my everyday life than ever before. A very good thing!

    Non-atheists have no idea how atheists think, Sphinx.

  3. Nope, they don't... but sometimes they get a glimmer.

    Same thing with being pagan actually... so many misconceptions and misinformation out there.

    Agh.

    I still have hope though... hope for a future where it just won't matter and no one's religion or non religion will set public policy for anyone else.

    Hugs and Happy Friday!

  4. Bobbie and Mary: Atheists are painted as anti-god, which really isn't the case and after all, they cause very little trouble as far as I can see! ;-)

    Kay: Hi! Haven't seen you around for a long time. There appears to be no fast track for progress. Sigh. Hugs back atcha! Nice to hear from you!

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
