Slymepit and Atheism Plus[edit]

FTR: The Slymepit is a forum, not a person. The forum does not claim anything. Posters there do. Others may (and often do) disagree. You can go hunting for comments in many directions. In this case, you are mistaken again and I really wonder why it comes that you feel free to outright make stuff up? The Slymepit are not random people who are clueless about the situation. If you really want, you can also look it up and make a tally. Of course, the purpose of this mentioning is only to present a rogue gallery and it's actually irrelevant what the sentence says. For the record. ~ Aneris 00:27, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Of course they're not random people. They're a forum with the opinions of that forum making a group consensus. Also, they're assholes who -I- would never deign to hang with. That's pretty bad, when you think about it. --Castaigne2 (talk) 00:29, 3 March 2016
I'm sure they care what you think.Keter (talk) 01:52, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Update : This forum looks like it is inactive it has no posts since 2018. They are not just dead , they are fossilized. DiogenesOfSynope (talk) 03:48, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

Atheism+ Forums[edit]

Seems to have gone tits-up. --MtDBogan 02:16, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

How so?--Owlman (talk) (mail) 02:23, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Agnosticism Plus and Atheism Minus[edit]

How would these theoretical bodies overlap?

There are probably different forms of atheism (does anyone recall the joke for which the punchline was along the lines of 'But I am a (one religion) atheist and you are (another religion) atheist'?). There is a theoretical case for 'organised atheism' that is more than 'I don't believe in a divine creator who interferes with the Universe in general or at specific locations.' We then might see proponents for different 'ethics for atheists' groups arguing over their equivalent of how many angels can dance on a pin. (talk) 15:59, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

similar viewpoints[edit]

The similar viewpoints section currently states. "People who don't like Atheism+ or RationalWiki commonly assert that RW is A+ or was taken over by A+. However, this claim is false. No person is a member of both."

A+ does not seem to be very active these days (I could be wrong) and I don't know of anybody actively making this assertion. I also have no idea how we could know if any person is a member of both communities. So I will soon delete the line unless someone cares to justify both claims.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 12:05, 18 May 2021 (UTC)

How rational is it to call people so? Wouldn't that expletive be better suited for derisive, unprofessional websites?--2A01:CB08:903F:D800:D124:A500:7B1A:321D (talk) 11:37, 19 July 2022 (UTC)
