My creationist stepfather has come to visit for a couple weeks. I love the guy, but his religious stance is as bothersome as they come. We had a small argument about religion and science. He went on to spit all of the usual (and ignorant) creationist views at me. Each point was easily refuted, but of course he would shake off my rebuttal with "it is gods will; you can not understand gods will". As well as my arguments on morals in which he would insist "any choice god makes is perfect," (including genocide and the killing of children, in context) "and therefore everything god does is good". When the argument ended he proposed to me the choice to come to church with him this Sunday to at least "give god a chance". Instead of straight on refusing his request and telling him how i should go to a unicorn convention to give unicorns a chance, or how i have already given god a good ten to thirteen years of constant chance; I offered him a deal. If he would listen to scientific lectures on my stance for two and a half hours, than i would spend the two and a half hours of my Sunday at church.
He looked insulted, and immediately refused.
Oh yeah, and he repeated many times during the argument that "Atheists use just as much faith as Christians" as well as "Completely refuse to give god a chance".
P.S. i wouldn't care so much about this, but this is what he is teaching my little brother every day, and there is nothing i can do about it. He censors my brother from science and criticism on religion.
