First, a little background. Recently on my college campus there have been a lot of Protestant and Baptist preachers spreading the word to the masses, telling us that we're going to hell, etc. I've even had one call me a "man-*****" for kissing my girlfriend near him, lol. Whatever, zero problem with that. The issue I've got is the atheists. The damn evangelical atheists who, despite being proponents of rationality and skepticism, argue and yell and preach in the exact same manner the the religious people do. Beyond the obvious hypocrisy, I don't understand what they think they're accomplishing, and I used to be one of them! But the wonderous world of high school hit, and I realized that arguing in that way does absolutely nothing for either party. Every single 'discussion' I've heard thus far has been nothing but straw men and personal attacks from both people, or occasionally, one religious person against a few 'rebellious' college students. If you address what someone is saying, especially when you vehemently deny it, you give their words power. I wish more people would understand that, because there are a lot of arguments that really aren't worth the time. Rant over.
