Can there be such a thing as an "Un-Informed Atheist"?

    I'm Christian, and I love talking with most atheists because they tend to be quite informed on the subjects which they speak - including religion.

    Hate to say this, but it's true: most Christians I've encountered are woefully Biblically illiterate.

    However, I have met some uninformed atheists -- the kind who say, "I'm an atheist because I'm an atheist, and don't confuse me with anything else because I don't want to listen." They're just as fundamentalist in their own way as fundagelical Christians are fundamentalist in their way.

    Obviously. I'm uninformed about lots of things - Colombian politics, the toilet tissue industry, aircraft maintenance, Russian cuisine, crocodile anatomy... the list is endless.

    Yes, and from what I hear, Sweden would be a good place to do research on the subject.

    Yes. But they seem to be fewer in number than uninformed xtians.

    Well, no one person knows everything about everything. So yes, everyone is uninformed about something.
