Its the fine line we walk after running away naked, feeling filthy and full of anger. Anger towards those that have lied to us, scared us and made us feel insignificant. Anger towards the years of believing a myth, engaging in pathetic rituals and wasting most of our life in pursuit of a giant illusion. This hate is deep and it causes me to lose what I honor most. Logic, reason and rationale.
When discussing religion I find atheists becoming what they despise most. Including myself. We become an unapproachable force or sarcasm, ridicule and in some case fiery hate. We won’t budge on our views and we will not listen to the opposition. We forget that we were there once. Once it was you lost in a brainwash of fearful mind slavery.
I am writing this to remind us all that these people are still our friends, neighbors and in most cases our family. We have so many resources on our side. You can’t lose a debate if you follow 3 simple rules.
•Always state your opinion
•If you don’t know the answer don’t pretend to
•Be a gentleman/gentlewoman
Remember you have science, common sense, logic, reason, education and so much more in your corner!
