Why all the fighting?
I have a confession to make: I am an atheist. Now, now, atheists, stop slapping each other on the back and shaking each other's hands congratulating yourselves on having such a genius amongst your ranks. And theists, stop howling with despair and tearing out your hair for having such a formidable opponent. There is hope yet. I am an atheist, true, but I'm not one of those militant atheists who goes around picking arguments with you godlings trying to make you see the error of your ways.
The point of this post is peace. Peace on earth, goodwill towards man, yada yada yada. Firstly, I shall address the godlings in general, and the godlings who proselytize in particular. The point that I would make is this: How can you expect to convince heathens if you can't convince the faithful? No matter what denomination of which religion you're from, doesn't the fact that there are other sects out there who basically believe in the same god but does not share your beliefs mean that you should go convert them
first? Jews, Christians, Catholics and Muslims believe in the same god, but they're literally killing each other over how to worship god. Can you blame us heathens if we have reservations about this whole god business? Make peace amongst yourselves first before attempting to convert anyone else. Only when there's a unified worldwide religion worshipping god will we heathens give any sort of credence to any of you.
Secondly, why bother? God is all-powerful and all-knowing, so if he means for a person to be saved, it will happen regardless of whether you evangelise or not. Conversely, if he means for a person to be damned, nothing you can say will save that person. Besides, most converts I know converted because of a spiritual/religious experience. I doubt that your
speaking will ever inspire something like that.
Right, and now on to the atheists who go around trying to disprove the existence of god. Again, why bother? You guys don't believe that god exists, right? Now, the question I have for you guys is this: Would you attempt to disprove the existence of Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy to a child? (Unless, of course, you're an atheist who believes in Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy, in which case, you're a very strange creature indeed, haha!)
There you go, the first post in this blog without gratuitious use of the word "fuck".
