Ex-Athiest writing a book on how to save you godless heathens

hi there friends. i am an ex athiest and im a putting togethter a book/blog for christians about understanding and then saving athiests. I PROMISE, I AM NOT TRYING TO SAVE YOU! but i would greatly appreciate your input.

like i said i used to be an athiest. actually i was more of an anti-christian. i was very thorough wile compiling my arsenal of anti-christian material, and was very articulate when fighting christians. i had a long list of great arguments against christianity, but i could use more.

lets face it. alot of christians are annoying, i agree, but the big idea here is that most christians have absolutely no concept of life without god. so they dont understand athiesim at all. one of the purposes of my book is to illustrate that athiests are not all terrible satanists. that alot of them are actually really good hearted people.

if you are willing to help me out i would appreciate it. if not, feel free to tell me to go to hell lol... please respond to the following 2 statements/questions

what is your best argument against jesus. not god, but jesus specifically????

what is the most annoying thing about christians? or what do you dislike about christians????

The first thing you need to do is prove you ever were an atheist. I think we'll find it puzzling that someone who truly understood that there is no intellectual/scientific support for the God theory would all of a sudden go intellectually flabby.

i will not respond to everyone here because like i said I AM NOT TRYING TO CONVERT ANY OF YOU. i just want to clearify a few things.

You won't respond because your position as a theist is too weak to withstand an honest debate.

i sincerely was, in fact an ATHEIST (sorry i didnt hit the spell check button before) and like many of you, i spent my whole life surrounding myself with like minded people who supported my position.

We've spent our whole lives surrounding ourselves with like-minded people? What a load of condescending buffoonery.

And you're lying about being an atheist.

devout atheist converted to christian.

Devout means total commitment to a religion, cause, or belief. Atheism is disbelief not belief. So there is no such thing as devout atheism. That you display such glaring ignorance about the most trivial aspect of atheism and make reference to tiresome stereotypes are shining beacons that you're a liar.  

with out a doubt, i have felt more judgement from atheists in my 2 years of being a christian than i ever have from christians out of my 30 years of atheism.

Opinion is a judgment. Solicit our opinions as you have and you're going to be judged.

judging by some of your responses i can tell that many of you know absolutely nothing about christianity or the bible or the history of it.

Atheists as a whole know more about the Bible than Christians do. I know nothing about the meaning you personally attribute to Christianity, the Bible, or the history of the Bible. Nor do I care to. Even if I did you'd have to get in line with the 41,000 other 'true' Christian faiths who want to tell me their stories too.

But I'll tell you what. Since everything you're selling depends on God, let's start right there. Please present your evidence for the existence of God.

i started learning more and witnessing a few miricles of my own.

Please do tell us what miracles you witnessed.

the only reason i hated christianity was because i didnt fully understand it. and the only reason i hated christians was because i had felt judgement from people who claimed to be christian.

Another beacon, Cam. Atheism is not hatred of Christianity and Christians.

you wont catch me preaching to you or disrespecting you

We already have. You're being presumptuous to the point of rudeness.

Here's your solution and I want you do this exactly how a theist would get help.

1 - Get down on your knees.

2 - Clasp your hands together 

3- start talking to the air (but really you're talking to yahweh obviously)

4- ask him (me) for answers to your question

Thanks Yahweh, I just spit red wine on a white shirt...

Comment by _Robert_ on January 17, 2013 at 9:05pm

due to spontaneous laughter...

Have you noticed, Robert, its always the shirt that gets winey, its never the wine that gets shirty.

Keep the drink, lose the shirt - their respective characters demand it.

Comment by _Robert_ on January 17, 2013 at 9:24pm

this is why black is the new black....or perhaps red is the new black. In any event, Christianity is the most annoying thing about Christians !

I find it odd that you, only having been a Christian for two years, seem to think you have a better grasp of the Bible than I do, or many of the other atheists here that have spent the majority of their lives as Christians. I was a Christian for 24 years of my life, and both of my grandfathers were preachers. Most of my life was spent in a church learning theology. I would say that it is your understanding of the Bible that's lacking.

By the way, which denomination do you now consider yourself a part of? If you say "none", I will assume you're "non-denominational", aka Evangelical.

I can feel my brain cringing.  Your OP comes of sounding like something Kirk Cameron would say as if he were presenting it to children on PBS.  Fucks sake man.  I would LOVE to hear your position on why you now believe in your religion and what miracles you say you have witnessed.  Please, preach to me.  Please.

I was a Christian through my late teens and even considered the Episcopal priesthood. I lost my belief when I started studying logic and philosophy. However, I too have seen a miracle. David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty disappear and David Blaine levitated.
