Dear Uncle,

You asked for brief answers.

Yes, I am an atheist and education did play a role. I do not wish to discuss it with you.

Regards
Nephew

Shut him down. If he pushes, block him

While my first instinct was to say to ignore him, this sounds like a much better course of action. If you're uncle is as crazy as he is, he will keep emailing you for an answer if you ignore him (which, if you ever see him in person at family get-togethers, it would make things really really awkward). At least this way, you give him a clear answer and clearly state that it is not a matter you wish to discuss so that now if he keeps pushing you more, you can more freely ignore the man without feeling guilt or another sort of negative emotion.

I totally agree with you on this. The response is polite, but to the point and does not allow for any misinterpretations. On the positive side, I highly doubt that I will ever see him again in my life time, not that I wish him harm, but you get the point.

I've never known a creationist to just walk away quietly. At least with the previous note it's very clear that you don't want to discuss and when he does push, there will be no hard feelings shutting him out.

I like it, but it invites the uncle to go into a deep discussion that the OP is trying to avoid.

If the OP wanted to debate/discuss/spar with him, then this would be a great response.

RE: Need idea's for a response email
I would reply with something funny and cryptic like

"Dear Uncle,

I was playing hide and seek with Jesus and I lost him. He is a good hider, I looked everywhere"

but then again I'm mean like that Tongue

Dearest Uncle

None of your fucking business.

Dear Uncle,
Go fuck yourself.
If you contact me again I will eat your soul.

The daily beatings will continue until morality improves.

Dear Uncle,

I don't know what you're talking about.

May the old gods and new bless you.

You don't know anyone.
