So I am still under attack daily on FB for being an atheist. I've been posting all the cool stories that have been running in the NEWS about the rapture and this and that, and it seems to REALLY be pissing off all the Christians!
Well I'm being as cool and collective as I can in my arguments with these christens, i once called my BEST friends, but they gave me a ultimatum, that if I didn't convert or start to believe they couldn't be my friends anymore.... So it looks like I have a few less friends!~
This is what I had originally posted, and below that, is one of my replies to the thousands of comments my OLD friends had posted.
"Are you attending the rapture on May 21st 2001? I expect to be left behind when it happens, soooo if you aren't going to need your WORLDLY possessions; be it money, cars, canned food, durable goods etc. I would gladly take them off of your hands! Just let me know when I can stop by and Pick up what you will no longer be needing.
MY reply after tons and tons of comments about how I NEED JESUS!
"Ok back, sorry I'm already at work. There is nothing here nor there that could make me believe in your or any religion. When it comes down to it, there are ZERO facts in the bible. None what so ever.
What are facts, are the killings, hangings, and stoning of innocent people in the name of the church/religion.
do you have any idea of how many people have been killed by Christans for not converting to Christianity? Or do you also choose not to believe that these things ever happen?
If god is the one who is suppose to JUDGE us all at the end, then why do people care if we believe or don't believe? Why must we convert?
What was the number? the Christian Crusades killed over 100,000 people for not converting to Christianity?
God and religion to me is a Genocide, if you don't believe your DEAD.
What do you think? Should I stop posting stuff like this on fb?
Two words for you my friend: Free speech. If they don't like what you have to say to flipping bad.

Be nice. Show love. You want to find out if they're really your friends, or if they're worth having as friends. Would they really abandon you just because of a logical conclusion you have reached. Ask them, "would you HATE me if I concluded that eight times seven equaled forty-two?" Ask them to help you by just showing you how your logic is wrong.
I would suggest that, for now, you leave out The Crusades, etc., etc. This is about you and what YOU believe to be true. If someone happens to post an argument about God that you have trouble refuting, post it here - you'll get hundreds of excellent suggestions.
If they are anger with your opinion then you must be stricking a hidden nerve that they would like to express but are scrared of the unknown.
