I think your classmate has offered us an insight into the foundation of his beliefs. Fear.
And, I think projecting his spinelessness onto other people might help him get to terms with being a coward.

How inspiring. Let's all join hands and convert right now.

In October of that year I had both breasts removed. I didn't pray.

I was told I had to go through chemo and I had to start ASAP. I got a second opinion. I didn't pray.

In March of 2010 I had reconstruction surgery. I didn't pray.

I spent about three years suffering from issues with healing from the surgeries and nerve damage related to the surgeries. I didn't pray.

Here I am. Cancer free and pretty much side-effect free. You know what would have happened if I would have prayed? The same things in the same order.

In my case I didn't even consider praying.

People can always say what someone else would or wouldn't do when faced with a devastating situation...but it's only speculation.

RE: An atheist becomes a believer
I've been in a lot of crises. I've never prayed for help. I was too busy extricating myself from the crisis.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

RE: An atheist becomes a believer
I've prayed twice in my life, I think. Once when I was a nervous wreck of a teenager, over getting in trouble at school for the first time ever. I prayed to "whoever was listening" to not let the teachers be too mean to me.

Much later, just so I could say I've done it, I prayed again to whoever is listening for world peace and an end to suffering.

That's as far as my religious career is ever going to go, unless my mind stops working properly. I guess such vultures would even take dementia patients converting as a win.

Rob.... You're liking that post makes it seem almost like you find my distress entertaining......


Thank you Smile at least I can be entertaining!

Aww Heart No I found your way of presenting your distress as entertaining entertaining Big Grin

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Believers become atheists after their dead when they realize they're fucking dead.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Just unsupported assertion. Standard theists tactics.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Lol! And guess what. Theists are also busy extricating themselves from crises, and on top of it they are distracted by the need to pray. Beyond that, they are conditioned to not give themselves credit for their own self-mastery because if they manage to get out of whatever mess they are in, they are conditioned to associate that result with god's intervention because of prayer.

Self-ratifying nonsense is SUCH a burden in a crisis. I can tell you that from personal experience. Things are MUCH better without it.
