RE: Sh*t people say to Atheists
Well the newest dumbfounder I've heard was on the last Atheist Experience.. A caller told the hosts,

"Why are you trying to take away the human experience?" Which was utterly insane. As if being a slave to something that doesn't exist is all there is to be human.

I don't believe in gods but I don't care if others do. I think it can be ennobling in a way some approach it, but debilitating when approached the way the mass of fundies do.

Likewise. My workplace is secular. A regulated secularism. They don't proselytize to me and I don't laugh hysterically at them and we both keep our jobs and play nicely together.

"One of my greatest regrets is not sending you to private schools or doing home school when you were growing up."

From my father. The problem I have with this, even though I would have preferred it growing up in some cases, is that it suggests that in public school when I was taught evolution he would have preferred I was lied to or was not taught science correctly.

What's easy to forget is that some places you can't spit ten feet without hitting a Christian. In Berkeley, California I can go weeks without encountering anyone who wears their religion on their sleeve (so long as I stay away from the majority of my own family). There are places here in the states where an atheist can go his or her whole life without meeting another flesh-and-blood atheist. I feel sorry for these guys but they really do have to deal with religion in a way we don't. If they have a chip on their shoulder they've probably earned it.

one of my favorites is, "You have to believe in SOMETHING!!"

Good point. I guess you've got to at least believe you don't have to fucking believe in shit unless you want to.

Went to Lutheran parochial school from K-9. I credit my keen memory to repeatedly memorizing and reciting bullshit babble passages each day in my formative years. I was and remain very good at it. Also, there's nothing more effective at turning out an atheist than a parochial education in my experience. Wink

Yup. And I'm not sure how to help them sorry ass fuckers from my safe dome of secularism other than to say, "You are not alone."

Nope. I ain't gotta believe in dick. Don't even need to believe in myself in order to go along to get along it seems. Wink
