Bring it!

This blog idea came from a post over at a blog I recently discovered, The Summer Squirrel. In a post that she titled The Sermon she described her Christian relatives as thin skinned when their religion came under attack. Well, that got me thinking about how as Atheists we don't seem to quake in our boots at the thought of a religious person telling us that we are wrong and we need to believe in their particular god or we are going to endure some kind of wrath. In fact a good number of us laugh when this occurs or at the very least smile and then without much hesitation we start into our speech of how we arrived at the ideas that we have.

I am so happy to be an atheist and know exactly how I would defend my position against most religious people. I actively seek to debate Christians so that I not only can strengthen my debating skills and reasoning skills, but also to show them that my position is built on facts.

Great observation. That is because we are firm in our stance and they are afraid to see reason because their faith is shaky as it is.
