Argument I Was Forced to Endure With the Christian Gestapo
This person randomly messaged me, I have no idea who they are or where they came from, but the conversation is as follows:
Fundie: There are no true atheists and you know it. You are suppressing what you know to be true.
Me: Not sure who you are but okay.
I'm assuming from your statement that you are theist, in which case I say this to you: I am not the one looking beyond the detrimental evidence, the likes of which this world is riddled, and choose to believe in a magical sky-god because it makes MY life easier. You are the one who is suppressing knowledge and rationality by furthering your belief, not I.
Fundie: According to the Bible, everyone knows there is a God but some suppress the truth. Everywhere you look is the evidence of a divine creator. People deny God's existence because they have been traumatized in some way, but your conscience convicts you of His reality. Admit it.
Me: Oh boy. Alright, first of all, the bible was written by PEOPLE not god, there is nothing at all divine or true about a thing it says. Second, the evidence against a divine creator is far more apparent. Evolution is one proof against it. You can in fact, see these things happening through the fossils that have been found and the changes that we see over time in them.
Third, divinity? No. Nature. Everything that you define as 'god's creation' is defined by science. Biology, chemistry, astronomy, these hold the real answers. Not some book put together by ignorant human beings.
Btw, we are not born religious. That belief is forced upon us by our parents just as their parents did to them. This is called indoctrination. Children are young and cannot differentiate between fact and fiction, therefore they are easy targets for your little cult, which is the reason it is so large. Using scare tactics and other methods these children are defenseless against the cruel hand of "god" as you call it. Much of the bible has been disproven; you're just too blind and brainwashed by your cult to see it.
Out of curiosity, why are you messaging me about this? There are plenty of other TRUE atheists you could have whined at.
Fundie: You don't know anything about the Bible. You simply parrot the same old tired ob
Me: I've read the bible, and then I put it into the fireplace because I couldn't allow the Christian infection to spread.
It is funny to me that I am being the one berated here for backing up my argument, by a person who can't even come up with one other than, "I have faith, I'm praying for you". That is ignorance by definition, you have no intelligence of the subject, you just spew the same recycled god jargon. Pray for me all you like, your Jewish zombie of a god will not answer.
Take care yourself
As you can plainly see, the religious majority have no decent arguments left. Their tactics include condescension, insults, and idiotic assumptions. My argument may have included passive-aggressive insults and some condescension here and there, but these things are wrapped around fact, not fiction. In respect to you, I did not include your username out of respect to you, take a note and learn.
