You just made his post all about you.
Yeah, that's humble.
“....But not so humbled that you could RESIST telling us how humble you are. ...” (my emphasis)
the same can be said about those Christians that claim to be “humbled” by being Christian.
The reason why I could not “RESIST” telling everyone here that I am humbled is because some Christians have the delusion in believe that atheists are not generally humbled and I want to put that record straight on our own position. Have you any objections in us atheists putting the record straight on our own position?
“....You just made his post all about you. ...”
no, the implicit point was that what I said applies to all atheists like me for I just used the “I” word as an impersonal example of a typical atheist who is nothing special. I could replace each of the the “I” words with “we” ( “we” meaning most atheists ) in that post to give:
We (most atheists) HUMBLE ourselves by thinking we are not so important or special to attract the interests of a god.
We HUMBLE ourselves by thinking we evolved from some hairy ape-like primates and was not designed by a god.
We HUMBLE ourselves by thinking life, the Earth and the universe was not all created for our benefit.
We HUMBLE ourselves by thinking that the universe we are in was not created by a god.
We HUMBLE ourselves by thinking that the planet we are on is not the centre of the universe.
We HUMBLE ourselves by thinking that our minds are not immortal and one day we will die and cease to be anything.
We will not unhumble ourselves because we will never be theist.
…...we are already humbled.
now, have you got any complaints here about this being about “me”?
