So much win, right there.^

RE: What is the response to this...?
See, that right there is why I don't post stuff on facebook. It puts whatever stuff you want to write in everyone else's face and practically begs them to come back with their own ill-considered opinion, crammed into as few underconsidered words as possible.

I much prefer this forum, where people go seek out your posted opinions with malice aforethought and respond with their own ill-considered opinions bloated into as many paragraphs as possible.

EDIT: In reply to the OP? Just leave it. You don't win anything by tangling in that sort of banal, shallow, empty-minded back-and-forth. Treat it as beneath your notice and maintain a level of gravitas.

So much so, that I don't even know how to respond to it without some lengthy paragraph that would go unnoticed because it's not as if she really cares. "And if there is.... I don't know... There is? Do words just come out of your mouth without any thought. THAT is your genius response?" ahh just infuriating.
Even the following comment by a family friend "I've always enjoyed KNOWING god is there ." doesn't bother me because at least it makes some sort of sense in response to the post lol.

"So what if there is? What's he going to do? Kill me and burn my not-skin?"

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

You're infuriated because you want someone to "prove" you wrong, and the person who's supposed to be able to do that has not been able to do it--so you feel betrayed by that, cheated. And, I suppose you're right to feel that way.

But stick around. One of the reasons I started "The Veridican," is so that I could begin the arguments and debates and discussions I've always wanted to start that would give a person such as your self real reason to believe.

In all the time I've been in TTA, I've never been able to do that, because I just get shouted down and everything turns into a big dog fight, or I post and get a thousand views and 150 replies in a day, and I can't possibly keep up much less try to have some clear discussion with someone.

So stay tuned. Shocking Atheism has never seen the likes of me yet, but it's going to.
