A Conversation for Atheism

The reason they don't attack a tank with a rock is that the kind of people that are atheists are scientific, and scientists are both too big of wimps, and to intelligent to attack a tank with a rock.

"atheists are scientific" - Blatant generalization. All generalizations are false, including this one. I'm an atheist, and although my computer job is vaguely scientific, my real interests in history, religion, and literature are anything but. My atheist wife is an office assistant with no advanced education. An atheist friend of mine is a musician.
One thing we have in common, though... all too intelligent to attack a tank with a rock. Good for us. If you think that makes us wimps, too bad for you. And good luck to the tank driver as he runs you down. And don't blame the driver, blame natural selection.

I said "scientific" because as a general rule, atheists tend to look at things in a more organized, tame, systimatic manner, not necessarily beakers and cell research. And, to be picky, your generalization that all generalizations are false is false (the irony)

It was irony on purpose. As I said...
"All generalizations are false, including *this* one."

I recall once hearing someone on the radio say that atheists should be espcially recognized for bravery because they don't get an afterlife if they're killed.
I've never attacked a tank with anything.
