Atheists often present themselves as rational and unprejudiced people. I think this is only a mask of their deep bigotry and hatefulness against anyone who thinks in a different way, say, theists or agnostics. For that reason I'm inclined to call them the Materialist Inquisition, although they are more inquisitorial (**)
than materialist, and more emotional than scientific.
Well, a few weeks ago I joined "Atheist vs. God
". I detected their hostility at first sight, but I pretended to ignore it for the sake of further discussions. However, someone in that community pushed it too far and forced me into a kafkian process as follows: 1) Otto
accuses me of plagiarism without any valid proof. 2)
I energically deny the charges. 3) Adrian
join the accusation, being many of them well known for their responsabilities in the message board. Their only argument against me is they trust Otto
I repeatedly prove them that Otto
's plot -which he kept changing all the time- is wrong and malicious. 5)
Now, although nobody has retracted, only Otto
maintain the accusation. Plus, two of Otto
's comrades, Jon
, seem to give credibility to my claims:
Let's assume for the moment you're telling the truth, irichc (Jon).
I understand your anger... if you are correct, but I don't think you are seeing things from Otto's perspective (drmcf).
Nevertheless, they don't dare to blame Otto
's temerity. 6)
So I give Otto
an ultimatum: if he doesn't apologize in time, I will spread the thread containing his false accusations. 7) Otto
hasn't apologized yet. 8)
Administrators have banned me unfairly.

Daniel. (**) inquisitorial - especially indicating a form of prosecution in which proceedings are secret and the accused is questioned by a prosecutor who acts also as the judge.
