Question How do you respond when someone says they are praying for you?
How do you respond or what do you think the best way to respond is? I usually say, "I appreciate the thought, but I am an atheist."

Sorry if this has been posted before.

Depends on my mood at the time, the situation, etc.
Most of the time, it's not worth commenting.

It depends how antagonistic I'm feeling.

Usually, I just laugh.

I usually just roll my eyes at them and feel annoyed.

If it's in person, I'm not sure what I will do (hasn't happened yet), but online in the comments section? I write: "Thanks, and I'll write a letter to Santa for you."

Usually I laugh and say "fine, I'll think for you."

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!
