I am okay with those that try explain the belief while acknowledging they are mistaken. Problem is they never acknowledge they are mistaken.

And they preach.

RE: I don't give a fuck why you believe
Wow, now that everyone got all of that off their chests, I'd like to tell everyone why I believe ...

The Bible says that I had a personal experience with God because that's the tradition I grew up with.

Wait! Don't ban me yet! I'm just foolin'.

Right now I'm in this debate with this believer guy somewhere else who keeps telling me that the only reason I don't (or won't) believe in God is because my ego is in the way.

Yeah ... chew toys, indeed. More like claw sharpeners.

I don't mind too much lending a friendly ear (or eyeball) to someone who needs to tell me why they believe even if it does often bore the piss out of me (which, at least, saves me a trip to the bathroom, I suppose). But just watch the fur fly if that conversation degenerates into them telling me -- telling me -- why I don't believe. And why I should. And why the atheist position doesn't work.

"If my God exists, then the laws in the Bible should apply to everyone. I am certain my God exists, so ..." -- words of a theocratic fascist justifying theocratic fascism.

Oh, so that's where he's getting his mambo-jahambo from ...

It makes sense now since this guy has one of those oh-so-very-typical stories of how he was once a drunk at the lowest point in his life, found Jesus, and suddenly his whole life changed.

He must be in AA ... I don't know anything about their doctrines so I didn't know that's where he was getting it from. But come to think of it, the guy does sound like a walking, talking pamphlet for a 12 step program. The stuff he spews was too clinical and now I know why.

These people always want to lay the "fault" of our non-belief anywhere but on the shoulders of their religion. No, it cannot have anything to do with any shortcomings in faith-based belief systems. Of course not. It must be a problem on our end somehow!

Tell him the only reason he believes in God is because of his ego. To think that an all-powerful being would give a shit what he believes and will reward him for it is the ultimate in arrogance. Why should God give a shit about him. Almost all Christians suffer from the arrogance that they somehow deserve to live forever based on their beliefs. No God worth his salt would give a shit what goober believes.

One is - 'Cause the Bible says so.
Another is - Because it's how I was raised and I have never questioned it.
Another is - I had a revelation where God revealed himself to me...this seems to happen with those who either had some sort of mental break or who took a little too much of whatever drugs were on hand...or a combination of both.

Funny that we seldom see where someone did a ton of historical and/or scientific research and came up with God as the answer.

The doctrine of AA sucks its a cult pure and simple, I don't do it anymore since becoming atheist that shit doesn't wash with me anymore and I get nothing from it.
