So I'm sure we all have Facebook friends that post crazy, amusing, disturbing things about god. So what are the worst or most amusing things that you have seen? That and do you ever respond to these posts or just ignore them or even just delete people from your friends list? Furthermore how have other people reacted to your own posts about Atheism or subjects that might go against the faith of friends or family?
I love this photo... but everyone knows that the Norse gods were really Asgard .... hope I'm not the only one here who watches Stargate ;-)
This is my favourite quote, love it!
I do that same thing I come up with a different faith to observe every time I visit my grandma to tease her. My grandpa gets a kick out of it because he is one of us. Thankfully I don't have any fundies in the family that I live close enough to see often besides a couple times a year for the required holidays where you pretend to like all your family members and act like everyone is very close.
I love you for this one:

A friend of mine posted how her biopsy came back negative & someone posted "I'm glad that prayer worked for you". *facepalm*
Hey the times when god doesn't answer our prayers is because he is busy with all the pro athletes...
...or they're judging the CMT awards.
We recently got into a debate with a xian pro lifer on MS's recent Prop 26. After stating we supported the right for choice, rather than removing the choice and allowing for only one option under the law, we asked them if they could look into the eyes of an 11 year old who was the victim of incenstrial rape and tell them they have no choice but to have the child, they responded with: "As for your question "Could you look into her horrified eyes and explain that it doesn't matter her age, rape, trauma, or the genetic deformities of the child she will be forced by the government to endure this horror?" Yes, I can. This may be shocking to you that "someone could think this." The fact remains that we believe in what we believe in. Could YOU look into the face of a 3 or 4 year old and tell it that you're going to kill it now because their mother doesn't want them anymore? This is the same to us."
Most of our atheist posts we notice are ignored, followed by a flurry of pro-christian posts by other FBers. When I have replied to a pro-christian post... no one will say anything back. Most people are so use to the religious immunity and instant plethora of "likes" when they post anything religious, that i think they are dumbfounded when a logical argument dissects and destroys their post. I do occasionally debate, but I would rather not on FB. Social network debates are worse than giving yourself root canals with a crude stone chisel and broken mirror while listening to the cry's of 100 hungry wet cats.

THE HORROR!....the horror......
LOL, Nate! I so agree! And I've noticed that, too. People tend to post more Christian crap and right wing political crap after a few of my posts. What's so satisfying, though, is that thanks to TA, I have a few atheists friends on my facebook...and welcome more, btw!....that I get a few "likes" on my posts and great comments. Makes me feel great that these so-called loving Christians can see I'm not the only one by far. And most of my posts are about human rights for all, healthcare for all...you know...giving everyone a fair shake...while they seem to show over and over again how very bigoted and prejudice they really are...yet they don't even see it.
Yeah I've noticed in most cases a lack of responses from believers or very hateful you are going to hell blah blah comments. It's only every once and while I get someone that takes time to really talk about it.
