How Long it Takes for Someone to Decide They Hate You:

The two seconds it takes for them to read the words "think atheist" over your shoulder in a public computer lab.

A complete stranger just walked by, glanced at my screen, made eye contact with me and (rather emphatically) mouthed, "Fuck you."

HAHAHA. i love it! I really, truely wish i was there. I allways avoid conflict (verbal and physical) to the very last second but that would just be WAY too much to let slide. They'll never understand the feeling of being free from all the thought numbing B.S. Its almost easy to take pity on those people once the anger blows over. I hope your day went much better after ....

Welcome to my world, won't you come on in? I'm 58, I've been putting up with this kind of crap for 52 years.

I would've lied to make the dude feel like shit.

"Excuse me sir, I happen to be doing research for my sermon this Sunday. My name if Reverend Galen. Now, have a seat right here, my son, and let's talk about how one should display a Christ-like attitude and love thy enemies...."

I'd have strung a line of bullshit to make him feel awful about himself. That would've bene fun.

haha that's hilarious. It really is funny how much atheists bother the religious. We just believe in one less god than them. What's the harm in that?

Must have been a loving Christian.
