Unicycle for Atheists/agnostics

Discussion in 'rec.sport.unicycling' started by terrybigwheel, May 3, 2006.

  1. Just thought it fair to give the other side a shot, if any.:D To me,
    whether you're religeous or otherwise, it should be kept personal; but
    since so many people seem willing to share their beliefs and/or
    opinions, go for it!

    I join! Do we get to do our non-religious rituals? Like, calculating pi
    to the tenthousand digits?

    That's offensive! I -religiously- memorized the first 250 digits of pi
    years ago. Digits of pi are a path to enlightenment. :D

    I knew this thread was coming. RSU, meet JC. JC, meet RSU. One big,
    happy, combined forum -- no need to -divide- ourselves into serious
    unicycling discussion (RSU)... and everything else (JC).

    We've been having fun debating religion for a -long-, long time in JC.
    Where have you all been? Why do you have to pollute RSU with it? Wait
    until Greg sees THIS thread. He wanted the other one moved. He's
    gonna throw THIS one right in the trash.

    The problem with the first "unicycle for christ" post was that it
    specifically excluded anyone that's not a christian and asked all that
    were not to not even post. It makes sense that if you take an already
    small group of people (unicyclists) and then fracture them into one
    group (christians) that the other group (everyone else) will want to
    form some manner of grouping as well.

    While I'm not going to argue the merits and pertinence of this thread,
    the reason it was created was obvious.

    Personally, I don't believe in a god, any powerful entity or other
    degree of all-knowing force. I believe when I die, I die and that's it.
    But - I also believe it doesn't matter. Why - because we're here
    because we're all unicyclists. We're here to talk about our one-wheeled
    adventures and help each other out. I don't care if someone's a
    christian, muslim, jew or any other religion. It's simply not important
    when it comes to the topic of unicycling.

    While I understand that some people believe that their religion
    transcends all aspects of their lives, it doesn't mean that they can't
    talk about unicycling without talking about religion and it also
    doesn't mean that people need to point out that "I don't believe in
    your religion and religion is foolish" or any of the other unnecessary
    comments some of the non-religious have made.

    While I enjoy rational, critical and open discussion on all topics,
    this one is unfortunately not one that everyone seems to be able to
    have here. Either some people are too crass or other people may be too
    sensitive - it's just a touchy topic and someone's going to get
    offended one way or another.

    I'd like nothing more than to see an indefinite moratorium on religious
    debates in JC or RSU. For a number of reasons (which both sides of the
    isle contribute to), I just don't see it offering much pertinent
    unicycling substance to these forums.

    This is probably because the thread starter was aware of the types of
    responses to Christ/Christianity around here. I don't believe the
    intentions were hostile. Why would an atheist care to join a Christian
    organization for unicyclists? Why should an atheist post to such a
    thread? If you're a freestylist with no interest in long distance
    riding, why would you bother to post in a thread about Cokers?

    Funny, that is EXACTLY what I think of the "Unicycle for christ" post!!
    IMO, neither has much to do with "unicycling" as a sport, or hobby. If
    you haven't already guessed, this was not meant to be taken seriolsly.

    Yeah, somebody PLEASE move this and the U for C threads over to JC.
    Just cuz you mention the world unicycle in a thread doesn't mean it's
    got anything to do with RECREATIONAL AND SPORT UNICYCLING.

    EX: "I was struck by the beauty of diving off the reef. The colorful
    fish, the eel in the coral, the sea horse, looking so much like a clown
    on a unicycle..."

    It'd be a real stretch to say that a thread like that would belong in
    RSU.

    I'd rather see 1000 "Which unicycle should I buy?" threads than either
    of these religious (or non-religious) threads here on RSU. Off to JC,
    I say!!

    Unfortunately Terry, being flippant about being an atheist, or a
    christian just doesnt seem too funny?:confused:

    I totaly agree, at least with those posts it is generaly people who are
    new and don't know any better, but I would imagine that whoever posted
    these two topics knew very well that these should be in just convo, or
    at least they should.
