Without R/Atheism and their glorious May-Mays, Euphoria will die out!

THE last question is so god-damned loaded that it makes my toes turn black and drop off through the earth and back out the other side in China via Hades.

ATHEISM has never been a fudging open community. It is a 12 year old circlejerk where we all sit around wenk-king each other off into oblivion -- DAE think christianity is for morons? No = downvote. yes= upvote.

Christ why the christing jesus lord do you bother with THIS . It's just the goshdarned internet

    The first question is equally loaded.

I do not care for it. While the subreddit can get pretty meme heavy and repeative, for new people it is all new and interesting.

I love the facebook fights. Hillarious.

Maybe the best way to handle the memes and the facebook fights is for the moderators to have some sort of super downvote. That way they can clear out some of the bad stuff, but if enough people want something, it rises again.

It became one of the biggest subreddits, and the world's biggest online atheist community, under the old rules. Apparently they were working.

    It was a default and, at the time of the change, had 2m subscribers. That's pathetic.

Put it back, you never should've touched it in the first place.

I want the old one back. It was were I could connect with like-minded people, which I don't get in meatspace. It was also a valuable tool for deconversion, as other users have explained.

Since when do two humans get to decide what I get to see or don't get to see? If this doesn't change back, you all are , and the entire Reddit community are and Reddit will be no more than an after thought to a new forum that will not allow human ego to reign.

I'm glad r/atheism has changed. Why? I love reading all the childish posts from the users that cherished their stupid sub so much.
"You mean we actually have to READ posts, now?? The Christians have won!! The mods are oppressing us!! WAHHHHH!!".
Get over it.
I hope it never goes back to the way it was just so you people will off and never come back to reddit.

Its a stuffy, boring sub and the take over was a crazy power grab by jij. the whole thing is pretty fishy if you ask me. I wish they would listen to the community and fix this mess. I don't plan to hang out in the sub much if they don't.

So why did they have to create a clone of /r/trueatheism, again? We already had the serious discussion subreddit for people that wanted it

Help am trapped in a constant xian meme, now have no rage outlet.

Please put it back. Show Tuber and Jiz the unsubscribe button.

I am very happy that all the memes have gone, but very disapointed that the facebook screen shots have gone. Reading others arguing atheistic points of view in the real world with theistic believers helps to formulate your own discussion/arguments points.

Why the doesn't someone just make /r/atheismwithmemes Think a little people.

    Why the didn't those who wanted nothing but articles and debate go to /trueatheism?

      Because they are probably over entitled 12 year olds who want to change an already well established sin to suit their tastes rather than seek out the appropriate sub
