Subject: [atheists-718] What is a freethinker? an atheist ? a hypocrite?


I am a Freethinker, which to me means a Freethinker, I don't know if there is a god, that doesn't mean I am an atheist, I just don't know...I am free to think as I please....So why the Atheist mailing list?  I was an atheist for 50 years, but I was dogmatic about it, a reaction to what I saw as religion...I have a more mature view now, I just don't know, I think you don't probably know either...are you all knowing? hypocritical?  I don't want to be on an atheist mailing list, because I don't want to be hypocritical, I'm not all knowing.  Take me off the atheist list, or change the name of the list.  Atheists, as I was, are hypocrites, just reacting in an extreme illogical manor to Christians...and as for your use of the word Church:


church definition, from  Reason and Logic depend on using known standard definitions.  A=A,  You pervert Reason and Logic by using the word Church in your name.  Imagine if you perverted the entire dictionary.  Where would reason be then? Reason would equal confusion.
