RE: Theist Speak
I found out that my friend that went to Catholic school is actually only two or three generations removed from Irish Catholics in Ireland. It explains the red hair.

Ok so my latest conversation with my mom today.
Me...hey mom guess what this guy Hitchens is an atheist and well hes dead now.
Mom to bad for him!
She did not see any ignorance in that statement. She said it offends her when I use that word about her...I later confirmed my thought that she said that cause she belives he is now in hell...so how is that not ignorance?

She thinks she's right so she's probably sensitive to being called ignorant. It's weird to think back and realize how totally different their worldview is from ours, but people actually spend their whole lives believing that crap is true. Have you asked her what makes her so secure in her faith? By asking it isn't necessarily starting a debate - it's just legitimately figuring out what makes her believe what she does.

RE: Theist Speak
Yes I have she says she has a real relationship with god and Jesus. She feels he is involved in everything she does.

I guess I am just at a point of not wanting to have these meaningless debates anymore when the whole point of this is to enjoy life as much as possible and as weird as it may sound the moment I realized that we only have a short amount of time on this earth that their is no afterlife something that should make me feel very depressed I felt the exact other way my mom asked me in a non joking way and out of love what I would do differently and it almost felt like I moved off to a different place thinking about all the possible things I could be doing instead of going to church twice a week I could instead use that time to work at the homeless shelter or whatever but just the thought of all the other things I could be doing with that time just blew my mind sorry for no punctuation I am feeling way to lazy atm to use it oh and I just saw the movie "The perks of being a wildflower" And thought it was pretty solid

She's right. They live inside her head and they're with her all the time.

RE: Theist Speak
It definitely does help to get your mind off of upsetting things like that when you can. Some people can't be won over, but there's still the chance to enjoy your time together. I've had disagreements with my mom but honestly I don't think I would still be alive without her support. Enjoy the qualities about her that make her a good person.

I haven't seen that movie; I may try to watch some TV when my dad goes to bed, but until then I'm just browsing the web.

"Shes not btw"

Oh I agree. At least, I couldn't call her crazy based only on the fact that she has the god virus. There are a lot of highly intelligent, perfectly rational people who somehow lose all logic when the god virus conflicts with reality.

^ Have you noticed that a lot of Christians like to deal in 100% and absolute certainty in things outside of the faith as well like my brother in law was telling me how mad he is cause he always gets matched with idiots and noobs every single time he plays league of legends..that's an online game obv lol when I asked him 100% seems a bit inflated to me he said just play and see....I told him...I...do...play
