I have been noticing that some Christians if not all sometimes act like children. When in a heated debate they will use sarcasm or they will accuse you of doing or not doing something. Here are a few examples from a debate I am currently having with once again Larry. This time it's about there being a face on the moon:
I am not the only one seeing the face, this is told about as far back as a person can go. All the childrens books from days gone by tell of the face on the moon. Yes there most certainly is a face on the moon. I hope every thing is going well for you. Larry
You can look tonight and try real hard not to see it. I am not confused, I see the face everytime cause its always facing earth every full moon. But if you try real hard you can refuse to see it. Many people refuse to see anything they don't want to reject. So I'll give you a warning, Please don't look at the moon it could be not so good for you. Larry.
p.s. please don't look when its out.
I believe what I see with my eyes more so then off what is on the laptop. You do have a good imagination to think I am so weak minded, But hey what ever floats your boat. I do wish you knew me better. You assume I believe everything I read when that is what you are doing. Try a little research on your own . Larry
p.s. If you do look at the moon, make it very quick, cause you might see it, and that would destroy everything.
Wow I'm so glad your are coming from a view of education. I would like to see the documentation on the Hallucinating Desert Dwellers, That sure ain't silly. Please send me the statistics of the actual strength of the moons magnetizm. Larry
As you can see he acts like a child when told there is no face on the moon. And here is one more only this is when I say there is no evidence that god does or doesn't exist. Of course saying that might be a no no:
Just because you refuse to look does not mean there is no proof, You have to look. Just be honest and say you don't want God. Peace to you! Larry.
What do yinz think of this and what more can I say to him?
The most important thing to remember is to give them as little information about yourself as possible. They will twist such information into something horrible and unrecognizable and blow it all out of proportion--even if it is something that is just as true of religious people as anyone else. For instance, most religious people use birth control, but an atheist who uses it is some sort of insane slut.
They don't believe for rational reasons, thus trying to argue with them is by definition a waste of time. And, if you win, which you will sooner or later simply because they are wrong, then they become dangerous. It is best not to argue with them. Instead, just drop little barbs into their minds and let them stew. Their egos are at stake; you must let them think that de-converting was their idea.
That is some good advice:)
RE: "For instance, most religious people use birth control" - including young Catholic ladies, for which I have had more than one occasion to thank the Virgin Mary --
Larry once said: "I dont believe in atheist because they have to work so hard to prove something they hope like hell ain't true. They never say Ho hum there ain't no god and leave it at that no they gotta make it a lifes work to prove something they can't".
The only reason atheists ever try to convince others there is no god is because religious people force us to do so. They won't leave us alone, and they refuse to discuss it honestly.
While I do hope the god of Abraham is not real, my reasons are not what "Larry" thinks. I hope it isn't true because it is all so revoltingly immoral.
Thought you might --
well I don't know if he is actually gossiping but I am sure if he wanted to he could be doing that. I geuss I'll just have to see.
Tell him there's also a Face On the Barroom Floor --
Arch, that was fabulous. What a great way to start my day. Thank you!
The painting actually exists at the Teller House, in Central City, Colorado (I've seen it), inspired by the poem of John Henry Titus.
