    I wonder, do Muslim boards in Muslim countries have atheist trolls who spend their days attacking Islam?

    Are Hindu boards in India infected with atheist idiots repeating what is basically the same post over and over for years?

    I see Muslims and Hindus get attacked on religion boards in America. But a "religion" board in India would be hindu-centric no? Are there trolls there?

    On an Arabic Muslim board, are there trolls spamming over and over? If it's just obsessive/compulsive disorder, one would expect the answer to be "yes, there are."

    But if atheist trolls are rare on such boards, then the phenomena may be more than just obsessive/compulsive disorder.

    On religion boards in the US, the Muslims, Jews, and Hindus get attacked mostly by racists and bigots, even by theist ones. But the atheists who park on religion boards with enough bile to last them for years tend to all be anti-Christian.

    I wonder why that is?

    The natural consequence of Rome's break from Orthodoxy was the reformation.

    The natural consequence of protestant scholasticism is the rejection of Christianity.


    Basically, the west is in a spiritual dark age. There is a nihilistic spirit guiding everything towards oblivion.

    If people don't wake up, they are going to find themselves under the rule of tyrants.


    Western Christendom needs to rediscover Orthodox Christianity and make a return to it. The consequences of the west's apostasy is that it has infected the entire world with communism.

    And in that very question lies the answer.

    It's because no matter how much truth you hammer into a Christian, he or she would not even begin to want to comprehend what the heck you're going on about.

    In Muslim countries, you won't even get any atheist who proclaims his status let alone dare speak a word against Islam since he ain't going to be wearing his head for long. In India, religion is so deeply inground culturally that an atheist would have much more success in selling ice to the Eskimos than trying to reason with those curry munchers.

    In the Western, free, civilised and secular world where Christianity is the spiritual poison of choice, there is hope for atheist advocates to do good work in the community and make a difference by converting Christians to a normal way of life.

    Atheism has nothing to offer. You are simply spreading ignorance and encouraging the marginalization of my people who have suffered enough as it is in the last century.

    You are very misguided. You don't understand what you are fighting.

    OK, so Christians are hardened to trolls.

    ...there is hope for atheist advocates to do good work in the community and make a difference by converting Christians to a normal way of life.
    The same Christians you just said would not even begin to want to comprehend?

    In Muslim countries, you won't even get any atheist who proclaims his status let alone dare speak a word against Islam since he ain't going to be wearing his head for long. 
    Really? Online? And yet some trolls say Christianity is worse. I guess it depends on how much one values his head.

    In India, religion is so deeply inground culturally that an atheist would have much more success in selling ice to the Eskimos than trying to reason with those curry munchers.
    Success at what? Fabricating more trolls? In the six years you've been spamming the same thread, how much "success" have you had?

    The term, "troll," is far too easy a term to throw around on forums. Typically it is used to refer to statements or behavior one simply dislikes. It in many ways diverts the responsibility one has for one's own emotions, and projects them as "provocation." While I agree that Salixes' threads are both frequent and provocative, as far as I can tell, he hasn't provoked anyone in particular. And there's a simple measure in responding to behavior you dislike: ignore it. Remember, it is you--i.e. everyone who participates--who responds to his threads and statements.

    I didn't call Sal a troll here or speak about his threads.

    As people are beginning to do with his threads. But I hope you notice, this is my thread.

    The term, "troll," is far too easy a term to throw around on forums. 
    True. But the term and those it describes do exist. I was wondering about a tendency of trolls, not accusing anyone of being a troll.

    Some people have been called a troll by virtually everyone for the last 6 years. I doubt the charge surprises them anymore.

    What do you think about the OP's question? Do you think religion boards in  non-christian societies suffer the same anti-theist troll problems?

    Exposing the hypocrisy, lies, and deceit of religion is doing quite the opposite in that religiously afflicted people are being weaned off their forced ignorance of relevant facts.

    Religious devotees marginalize themselves through maintaining idiosyncratic beliefs that harbour anti-social attitudes and behaviour. I have done a lot to help these people assimilate into decent, moral, civilised society.

    You are advised to have a good look at your anti-social, bigoted views before making an erroneous judgment on others.

    Western countries have free speech.  Saying something atheist won't get you killed.  As an agnostic, I value the free speech in the west and everywhere.

    But, going by the recent school and church shootings, saying something Christian could get you killed.

    Militant anti-theist morons don't care about the free speech of others.

    As an agnostic, I value the free speech in the west and everywhere.
    As Europe and Canada import primitive morons into their countries by the boat load, enjoy free speech while you can.

    Hate speech laws and Sharia laws are about to make the free speech you value a thing of the past.

    If you listen to what I say, the only Orthodox Christian around here, it should be apparent that what we believe in no way resembles your caricature of it.

    It makes more sense to understand what we believe before trying to refute it. 

    You don't understand our faith.

    I understand where he is coming from. He doesn't know any better. Besides, his impression of Christianity is likely sculpted by the pharisitical assholes around him who respond to him in a manner indistinguishable from the pagan.

    People are rarely converted by arguments. Love is the weapon of a Christian. 

    It's hard to love people. It requires self sacrifice.


    Oh how I would love to mercilessly mock people! But I know that I must become less so that Christ be magnified in me.

    I have no reason to doubt that's what you believe.

    However, the fact is that my caricature of Christian Churches is totally correct and I have thoroughly backed up my claims already.

    It is significant that you have not refuted the facts I presented.

    Simply saying "what we believe in no way resembles your caricature of it" as a reply further reinforces my observation that you, along with other members of your cult, are ignorant, arrogant and deluded.

    Whether you like it or not, the facts remain the same.

    What is there to refute? If I were to answer you according to your folly I would only be reinforcing your superstitions, which would make a fool of both of us.

    You'd have to forget everything you think you know, and be taught afresh. The fact is, you don't understand my faith. That being the case, you are incapable of making an effective argument against it. You can only really speak to people who are in the same boat as you. That is, those who don't really understand the faith to begin with.

    A well thought out " religious group " will come about soon* to combat alllllllllllllll religious groups and get things back on the norm. 
    Like ummmmm, people from this group can say whatever they want as long as they are rubbing their belly clockwise. 
    Or 
    Or 
    If a person from a religious group are to talk to a person from the well thought out religious group,  and are not hopping on one foot whilst talking to them then that is just downright disrespectful.  
    Crap like this....
    A million plus atheists will join this group in a afternoon and we'll all have to accept it. 

    A REALLY WELL THOUGHT OUT RELIGION.

    I don't think you do. But I am willing to let you find out that you don't.

    People are rarely converted by arguments.
    A Christians goal is not always  conversion.

    I think that poor excuse for an argument has well and truly passed its use-by date.

    I suggest you may be able to raise your level of discussion just that little bit higher buy emptying the words "ultimate", "truth" and  "don't understand " from your copy and paste basket. Being deliberately deceptive and evasive only shows that you have no viable reply at all.

    Time to raise your standards if you want any hope of cutting the mustard with someone who knows a fraud when he sees one.

    When you go into your demonic cult fortress after lent you can, of course, let yourself go and tell heaps of lies and be as deceiving as you want since nothing will go past those walls you know.

    I don't think think you should make excuses for your inability to present a better example. The wickedness of the person you are talking to is not a license to respond in a way that is unbecoming of the example we are supposed to set.

    I am not so deluded as to think that I can save anyone, or reveal anything to a person. I am not The Holy Spirit. What I do know is that love is long suffering, and indeed it is a lot harder to love your enemies, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who despitefully use and persecute you than it is to make sport of a fool.

    Love is not easy. No one ever said it was. But I know "the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned". That is what we are called to do.
