Have you ever evangelized in a public space? (It doesn't matter if you're not a Christian. You just shared what you believed.)
I especially hate it when they call atheism a religion; no way! If anything it's a philosophy, but it is absolutely not a religion.
Nope. I don't push my lack of religious beliefs onto others. I wish they would do the same.
It's called freedom of speech.
No. These days people will evangelize just about anything and do so acting as if they'd die for their cause. I think such actions are deplorable.
EXACTLY! Per definition alone, it's impossible for atheism to be a religion.
The best way to counter their trash talk is ignore it, unless there's a dozen of them coming up behind you with a noose; then it becomes prudent to agree with anything they say, at least until they crawl back into the woodwork.
People try to convert me all the time. Fine, but you're wasting your time. It's like trying to convert me to stamp collecting: I'm just not interested.
