so many thoughts...
i mean, i wouldnt call myself atheist. yet im....offended?
i wouldnt call myself christian either, not that it matters, because really, i try to be caring, compassionate, and respectful of all religions. we all have our thoughts, our beliefs. our reasons.
the funny thing, is while the comment sounds like something id potentially say sarcastically in a heated discussion, the persons serious. (i know this because i know the person that posted this, as well as the one that responded)
i stared and i stared. i thought "these types are a lost cause", and continued to stare. i have to share with someone.
i mean, i cant speak for every person, not every atheist, christian, jew, muslim, buddhist, etc. but generally speaking, ive never felt like atheists think "nothing came from nothing" etc. really, those that are open about their atheism, and discuss it in an open fashion, are quite intellectual and think much more complex thoughts than that.
maybe thats it. maybe atheis is just to complex for people like this to understand. like the commenter said "so much easier to believe god created everything."
i mean, its true. my work would be a lot easier if i could simply justify everything with "god". such as "mom, why does it flood?" "well sweetie, you see... god wanted it to flood."
disclaimer: dear beautiful, wonderful, christian readers. as i said, i totally respect and appreciate your beliefs and reasonings. i am in no way thinking all of you are so closeminded. i just needed to point out this specific case of sheepleness, where one absolutely refusses to think for themselves, and chooses to speak poorly of anyone who does.
thanks for reading.
