It's because we have a mind set against him...

Yes they're serious.

My reply to them was simply this..

I couldn't get past the first paragraph without shaking my head. Sorry but lack of evidence is EXACTLY why i and many atheists i talk to on a daily basis refute the idea that there is a god. How can we have a mindset against something we refute as being nonexistent? That's like an adult being mad at Santa because you didn't get the present you wanted.

Thank you. I think it seemed rather apt.
So now we know. the only reason we stopped believing in Santa is because we also have a mindset against him!
Obviously there is evidence, the aSantaists don't lack belief because there is not evidence, they have a bad mindset. Santa himself said that he exists in his book, so there's your proof.
Sad, but I am finding that these fringe loons have a great effect on the moderates. I was told not long ago by a friend, upon being shocked to discover my atheism, that "something" must have happened to me. The implication was clear. Something happened to turn me from God, make me angry, and "set my mind" against Him. It really can be hard to make people who think that way truly understand your position. Of course, if they truly understood it, they would adopt it.
What's that quote from House?

"If religious people were reasonable, they wouldn't be religious"?
Yeah, I think so. I like that quote!
The correct wording is: "If you could reason with religious people, there would be no religious people." Not that it really changes the overall meaning all that much.
That'd be the one! I think I was borrowing from it when I typed mine. Should I have cited it? ;-)

Ha-ha-ha! This made my day!
OMG!!! My brother used this against me when trying to "criticize" my atheism!! O_O He said that after I said that I couldn't believe the parts of the bible that are nice were true... simply because they were nice.... that either the whole bible is true and a rule book to follow... or it's unverifiable... composed of legends and myths... and is of no use to anyone.

He responded by saying that I was like a fundamentalist and "only the sith deal in absolutes."
You're brother sounds like a twat. (excuse the vulgarity.)
