Re: Atheism, and "Bread and Circuses"
I would amend my question, by instead asking:
Seeing as we both agree that the positive content of atheism is a belief system, would you also agree that those who share your beliefs should accord respect to those with differing beliefs?
For the zillionth time, there is no affirmation of any belief, when not believing in a deity. It really can't get any clearer than that.
