How come every time I get in a Thor damned discussion with a person of (say this in a deep voice) faith they say “I used to be an atheist” like this strengthens their argument. No, no you weren’t. You were about as atheist as a drug addict addicted to pot. You’re lying to me just like you lie to yourself.
I can, maybe, possibly, understand… maybe, a person trying out “atheism” and by that I mean “sinning” and the entire time they are terrified of hell and damnation so they turn back to the Lord All Mighty Mind Giant. Then they boast “I was atheist once! I banged biatches and ate babies and snorted coke off of a dirty toilet seat and played swords with a guy I met at a train station’s bathroom stall. I was insane dude! Totally atheist. Totally. But now I have Jesus and don’t do those things anymore.”
Hallelujah! Somebody give this guy a pat on the back (but be careful the devil is always trying to get him to revert back to atheism and he may go from six to noon if you know what I mean).
The only reason I would ever say I believe in a god is for money. I know, I know, I have no morals. I really don’t. But lets be honest, I am only saying what you’ve thought about.
*I am sorry for the terrible grammar and punctuation in this rant. I’m not completely sober but then again that is not a good excuse.
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!
