i got my sister and her husband thinking
I went over to see my sister she owes me money and she did my nails for some of it since she went to school to be a nail tech. So anyway we all got to talking and I explained the facts about the bible and quoted the bible as well. All the evil parts. And they both said they wanted to do research for themselves. It went very well and they agreed with me on lots of points. Brother in law told me to send him some links. So he is genuinely interested. So excited. All I wanted was for them to think for themselves.

Are you versed on apologetics? If not, read about them as that is coming.

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."

Most people have a very, very hard time deconverting. They have had a life time of indoctrination.
They will have questions.

RE: i got my sister and her husband thinking
I don't dick around with my friends and family when it comes to religion. "Wait. Are you telling me that we survive our own death? Tell me how the fuck you think that's even possible let alone tenable. Come back when you're ready to talk like a grownup Mom." No talk of religion required. No arguing about the Bible. It's not about religion, it's about childish metaphysics. No friends or family lost. Just some very strange looks. Strange looks don't bother Bob. And they've never raised the topic again. I mean the fuck they gonna say?

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus

Actually I do with them I do. But I'll always be there for them if they need anything. And I'll be talking to them more about this too. Thanks though.

Good luck. Just make sure you cover your arse by knowing the bible.

A bit of history helps too. Do you know anything about St Bartholomew's day, for example?

I've always considered arguing the finer points of the "bible" with the devout about as productive as debating a teenage boy of who would kick who's ass -- Batman or Superman.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

It can be done. I have done it. My brain sadly is not what it was. Hopefully the youth can carry on...

I do know the bible. Thank you for the link I'll be reading that. And they aren't devout anything. They just have an underling belief in god. So I've been working on them to get fade it out.
