Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

"[I] Tried a few spiritual things but didn't feel right. Then I called myself an atheist for a while, just kind of being rebellious. I wasn't really. But I kinda labelled myself that for a while. It felt punk rock enough. "And then I found myself coming back around to just belief in- I hate to use the word spirituality, but just a belief in that we're all connected."

The more desperate the atheist the more willing they are to pretend all who are unaffiliated think just like them.

Weird. That is not my experience at all. I've never had atheists come to my door and hand me pamphlets trying to convert me. I've never had atheists try to scare me by telling me if I don't believe like them horrible things await me for eternity. I don't see structures every other block dedicated to atheism. I'm not a aware of a single conflict or war in history fought over atheism.

My experience is the sky fairy believers trying to push their agenda on me.

You and I must live in very different worlds.

I'm not sure the game you play, but it is definitely the sky fairy believers who want to smother the world with their beliefs, not the atheists. This cannot be denied, in spite of cryptic references to the Romanov's last stand.

Please rebut my post #2 if you are able.

I am not sure why atheism and 'we are all connected' are incompatible beliefs.

I also dont really care what other people believe if their beliefs aren't impacting me.

Agree 100%. That is why I am so weary of people coming to my door telling me I am going to go to hell if I don't accept Jesus. I have never heard of atheists going door to door telling people they are damned forever if Christians don't change their ways.

Wait, I think I did hear of someone doing it as a joke once. But certainly not on a grand organized scale.

Why can't people who believe in the sky fairy just live and let live?

According to the Koran it is a sin to associate anything or anyone with god.... giving the powers of a god to anything and/or worshipping it.

You are not doing any of that. In fact you deny the existence of any possibility of anything god-like.

You are not going to hell. LOL

Not believing in God is a negotiable "sin".. If it is a sin at all. Allah does not care if you worship him/her/it or not... Allah has trillions of lifeforms already worshipping it.

Making something into a god however is an outright unforgivable sin.

The first is atheism.

The second is Hinduism.

Christians are sick in the head, mate.

Don't matter if they are Catholics or whatever... they're all sick in the head.

Treat them accordingly.

And a question... are they targeting you ... coming to your door. Or are they doing it to everyone?

Are you on some list of theirs? Do these bastards have "let's convert this guy" lists?

They target everyone. The most prevalent are the Jehovah's Witnesses. They are easy to spot. They all dress alike: black trousers, white shirts, black ties. They always ride bicycles and travel in pairs.

"You are not going to hell. LOL"

It's not something I worry or even think about. I'm as likely to go to hell as I am Betelgeuse.

They have women in their pairs too? Or are they like Taliban Pence style... women haters?

I ask because I have found preachy women oh so dreadful and unattractive. And when they start yapping ... the thought starts at the back of my mind and slowly gets louder... "can I frak the Allah out of her?"

In my experience such women are all hiding a guilty ------ second personality under this one. And I am just the guy to bring it out.

And they are all screamers in bed. Every last one of them.

#22 One time I was in line at Vons when the lady behind me sneezed. I said, "Bless you," and she started screaming at me that "Only my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ can bless me!" I just shook my head and carried on.

Some people are nice and chill about their religion and then there people who are complete jerks about it.

What to do about something with such a range AB ideologies that incorporates Jimmy Carter and Osama bin Laden.

Is it any wonder the stupid and immoral wanted to all just go away?
