Religious truths - Stomping Grounds
the icon pretty much expresses my sentiments on most religion.
i've spent much of my life studying religion, reading just about every holy text and world mythology i can get my hands on. ironically, it's led me to the point i'm at now: i'm not atheist, or agnostic, i'm apathetic whether god(s) exist or not; i just _don't_care_. i think, we as a human species, if we're to grow up as a species, and become more than meatbags of mostly water, should as ourselves whether we _need_ god(s) or not?
the new atheists bother me just as much as whacko fundies do. the new atheism is just as much dogma as any fundamentalist religion. the paraphrase a great movie, "A strange game. The only winning move is not to play."

I'm afraid I can't agree with you on either point. I care whether or not there are any gods, because I care about the truth of the universe; and there is no atheist dogma, "new atheist" or otherwise. That's kind of the whole point.
Where I do agree with you is that it would be nice not to have to care. But so long as so many people are trying so hard to inject their religion into others' lives... I care.
