S/O "Christian Atheist"....

...."its a label for the kind of person that may even go to church sometimes, but the way that they live their lives is like an atheist."

 

How is it, exactly, that Atheists live in comparison to christians outside of not having an externally imposed moral compass?

  • I was wondering this myself after reading that question.  I stay out of religious debates because I don't actually have one but wanted to show my support!

  • This doesn't make any sense to me. Christians believe in God, and Atheists don't. So really, using that term makes no sense and is not logical.

  • that statement just threw me for a loop. We all know assumptions get us know where and make us look like fools when we have no facts to back them up. Atheist live horrible lives..you didn't know? lol I was of course being sarcastic on that one

  • I do not presume to know what she was thinking, or meant- but I figured it would make for some interesting feedback. Or, at a minimum at least close the gap for some of, ahem, new members ;)

  • I would say they are more Agnostic then anything else. But that's my opinion. Plus that question just made my head hurt, must need more coffee and a smoke.
