One who, on evaluation of all the evidence presented, believes in the nonexistence of deities, God or otherwise. The term implies neither indecision nor the unwillingness to re-evaluate one's stance when presented with new evidence.
Atheists lack faith. Lack of faith is not a faith itself.
A person who is scared of homosexuals. They usually try to justify their bad behavior with half-assed arguments about nature, AIDS, and God. they are mentally lazy.
Guy 1: I hate them homosexuals. What they doin' is not natural!!! You don't see other animals being homosexuals!!!
Guy2: Yes you do! all kinds of animals are known to have homosexuals among them.
Guy1: It's not NATURAL!!!
Guy2: Whether it's natural or not has little to do with it. Poison is natural, does that make it good? What's your point?
Guy1: Well, uh, uh, it's against GAWD!!!
Guy2: you're homophobic.
2.Various intimate practices and beliefs collected from many points throughout history that stress individual assessment and interaction with the Divine/universe/existance/etc. The occult discourages blind acceptance and usually involves magickal practice.
Examples of occult paths include (and are not exclusive to):
