We're atheists for different reasons apparently. I'm an atheist because I don't believe in god... not because I want to 'belong' to something and hang out exclusively with people who think exactly the same way. There's a word for that: Cult. Which are usually religious in nature. When I see Atheism being pushed in a cult-like manner, I shake my head every time. That commercial sucked.

Your rant about Chiefs fans is just silly and a total chewbacca defense.
There's no reason you can't have a community of like minded individuals that enjoy discussing a topic. I enjoy doing it almost everyday. We discuss different aspects of our interests and take sometimes opposing slants on minutiae of the "faith". I do seem to post almost religiously and am almost addicted to it. Is this a sign of cult like behavior? That fact that I regularly get together with like minded individuals and endlessly discuss our viewpoints. Is this somehow cultish? I don't know but I'd like to think not. Looking from the outside I could see how people might think my behavior is somehow cultish.







But I still enjoy Chiefsplanet anyway.
