Do you agree with Richard Dawkins view?
Umm do you mean weeaboos? Not Weebos lol. Noun. weeaboo (plural weeaboos) (slang, derogatory) A non-Japanese person (especially one of Caucasian ancestry) who is obsessed with Japanese culture and behaves in a stereotypically Japanese manner.I don't believe so. It would be like mocking one's culture. Religion, to many, are just what you subscribe to, just like one's culture. Most people subscribe to their own culture but some subscribe to others such as Weebos if they subscribe to it exclusively, etc.
I guess that you didn't realize what I said. I was talking about a non-Japanese person that subscribes to Japanese culture but to the extreme, so much so that he or she adopts it as his or her exclusive culture.Umm do you mean weeaboos?

^this. so much this, on so many levels.. :frown2:What I think about religion in this context? I think if religious people never bother anybody and never try to convert anyone who doesn't want to be converted and never try to pass any laws that oppress people who don't believe the way they do and never start arguments with friends or family members who are not religious, then they have the right to ask that their religious beliefs to not be ridiculed.
In the real world, it's just as unrealistic to expect an atheist to STFU as it is to expect a Christian to STFU. People are simply going to pollute the world with their personal views as they see fit. To try and silence any of them is to try and silence all of them.
Yes and no. I mock/ridicule the religious and religion in the way I mock/ridicule sports fans and sports. Both have people who are casual followers, they're very tolerant of others, and it makes them happy being a part of the community, which is fine. Then you have the deranged few who think their favourite is the best and will fight constantly with others, which is stupid.Do you agree with Richard Dawkins view?
Honestly I guess I agree with you m8 I am a proud atheistI do my best not to mock individuals (and sometimes fail), but I very strongly believe that all beliefs (and by extension religions, as well as political and social views) should be open to criticism and, yes, even mockery. I know a lot of people won't even understand the difference but it's important to me, and to the whole religion debate. Because beliefs are not people -- they do not have, nor do they deserve, any kind of protection from defamation or slander. "Blasphemy" is an incredibly dangerous and foolish concept.
