by recognizing that there is a power higher than yourself you also have to accept that you have a responsibility to that power.[./quote]
How about I just recognize that I have a responsibility to my fellow human beings and would like to make life better for them on earth, HERE AND NOW, not because I feel obligated to serve some omniscient master who can give me no concrete proof of his existence.
Funny that you should mention the spaghetti monster, which happens to be a JOKE invented by skeptics to criticize the idea of creationism. You still haven't explained why atheism or any nonbelief is sillier than accepting the idea of an omniscient creator because an old (or new) book says so and said book says that what it says is THE TRUTH (tm). All you spout off are strawmen.
If the silly pseudoscientific ideas in Dianetics helped you in some self-discovery, more power to ya. I'm just trying to make you aware of the very sinister and money-grubbing origins of said "holy" book.
Well I'm sorry that you know some rather shitty atheists. Like I said, we're all human. I'm also very sorry for you that you need the idea of an omnipotent sky-daddy to make you behave like a decent person and care about other people, but be aware that there are many atheists who do care about their place in society and who they affect, but don't need any comforting fairytales or sanctimonious revelations to make them take action.
Thanks for yours.
