  •  Existentialism is not atheism- (0+ / 0-)

    It is a philosophy I am quite familiar with, and I read Sartre before becoming an atheist, which led me to it.
    I do not fully read diaries that presume to write about atheism and talk about spirituality the way you do. It's as if you are trying to hijack atheism and what it means, and redefine it to your own, as you admitted, liking.
    Leave the word 'digest' out of your diary title if you do not pretend to be a flagship for all atheism related diaries on the site. Thank you.

      Maybe you should write a diary on Atheist dogmas and Atheist absolutism. You seem eminently qualified to insist your interpretation to be the god-be-damned absolute purest one.

      You are exactly who I speaking to in the diary and you sure don't like it just like the orthodox buddhist, christian and Hindu who took the same route you did.

      Who would have known? An orthodox atheist?

      Looks like I flushed out everything under the sun this time around.

      After all is said and done, a lot more is said than done.

    •  The "digest" is there because he was invited (3+ / 0-)

      by me to participate and lend a different perspective to our series about atheism.  It is entitled "Atheist Digest" and he added that to his title to disclose his diary as part of that series.  This series, nor this diary, is not meant to be an encyclopedic expression of all that which is "true Atheism' (as if there was such a thing).  And no, I don't pretend to speak for all atheists in my diaries or the series as a whole, just simply seek to open dialogue in this community and have some interesting discussions on the topic.  I think you have jumped to some unwarranted conclusions.

      before shooting yourself in the foot.

      You basically don't understand how Daily Kos works, and have come barging in here with the arrogance of youth, assuming you know it all.
