It is no secret that I am an Atheist and view biblical texts in scientific eyes - however, one thing that has occurred several times now, which I believe is based on a misconception about Atheism and also is, in my view, a violation of etiquette.
I do not, in any way, appreciate being 'preached' to - I am not in need of 'saving', and most certainly are not in need of being educated/converted.
Several times in my questions, people have sought to reply (usually in comments) of religious matters related, and sometimes not so related to my actual question - which would require a scientific or historical answer (all of which are within the scope of this site).
To be blunt, I actually find preaching and attempts to engage me in debate about my (or your) beliefs irritating, rude and disrespectful. I admire some people's conviction to their beliefs and truths, but people need to accept the fact that I have the same conviction in mine. All attempts to preach or 'educate' me actually drive me away from your 'Truth', as this practice is showing disrespect.
This disrespect extends to the moderators and to many other members of the site.
This has happened too many times now, as a result of this, I do not feel that my continued involvement here is tenable.
