In her defense, though, she was a very sweet young woman who's mind had been defiled by religion since birth, so it's not entirely her fault that she had no concept of *not* worshipping something.

Yeah, that's probably why a lot of people just think I worship the devil. They figure if I don't worship their god, I must worship the other guy. It blows my mind that people think that way though.

It is quite baffling. And I'll admit, my response to her was probably a bit more unkind than it should have been. Eh, oh well.

RE: Sh*t people say to Atheists
I briefly explain the accident that I'm still recovering from.

Him: "God wouldn't do that if He didn't have a plan."

Me: "Yeah, well, I'm an atheist."

Him: "Well I'm sorry to hear that."

RE: Sh*t people say to Atheists
Wow, reading this I am surprised at how few people actually know other atheists in reality. I know at least 5 atheists just in my school of about 200 people.

Oh, and the reactions we get? Not much anymore now that we have established ourselves. People would sometimes wonder but then they would just move on.

Under Repair.

RE: Sh*t people say to Atheists
If Atheists are critical thinkers and free thinkers then, (insert some uneducated opinion here)

This one happens all the time when arguing with theists who've debated a couple times before.

Member of the Cult of Reason

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.

I agree with you. I'm active duty military and its rare to find a believe in my career field. Of the 15 or so people that work in the office I am in exactly one of them is a believer. I've had crowds gather around my desk while listening to TTA podcasts at work. Have I mentioned I love my job? lol

RE: Sh*t people say to Atheists
Someone I know had relatives (a kid and a man) that were killed in a car crash.

I cringed when I heard someone say something along the lines of God has a plan and we don't understand his mysteries (referring to the accident).

Exact opposite for me. I don't know a single religious person on my school. Smile

Fuckin' Germans, too damn efficient for their own good. Still trying to breed the √úbermensch. If we keep them contained I can only hope they eventually turn Japanese. Big Grin

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

They're probably all inside, not on the school smoking pot between classes like the heathens.
