I poke and prod at people about their religion.
I post atheist quotes and videos on my facebook page.
The people on my list can, ignore, comment, agree, disagree, whatever, but it will get them thinking.
Last night I posted this:
"What happens when we're dead? The irony is that all our questions will be answered after we die. We spend our whole life trying to figure out the truth and the only way we'll find out what it is, is to get hit by a bus. And the only comfort that religion offers is that God is driving that bus." - John Ryman, When Galaxies Collide
"oh jay, it's sunday morning.... such a heavy topic for early in the day!!
hopefully your family doesn't fight too much over the money and stuff you've accumulated, after they dispose of your rotting body and/or burnt flesh which may now be a pile of ashes that you get in a cardboard box.
have a great day, jay! xxx"
So often believers go right for the cadaver. As if they escape the maggots cuz jesus told them so?
Isn't it odd how often they want us to rot and burn?
I plan on this reply.
" K, I thank you for your reply, I love all dialog on heavy issues like this..this is what I do. My stance is that religion is poisoning our society. the dark ages are over, and I want people to think. (for themselves) and I am providing an atheist's view point . I can be very militant, but untill there really is separation of church and state, and the suicide bombers are gone, I'll keep trying to make a difference in my own way.
Would posting this on wednesday be better? ( and as far as early in the day, sorry I have insomnia) It's not a bible verse. I see enuf of those , it's the religious belief systems that promise pearly gates and 72 virgins and fly in to buildings, rape children and murder doctors.
I live for today. My corpse will be donated to a medical school. My kids don't care about my stuff. My daughter knows to call an estate liquidater.
If I posted "Praise the lord jehovah and ...." would that be perfectly acceptable? Can an atheist stand on a street corner and proselytize like christians do w/o angry slurs hurled at them? (NOT in Tulsa for sure) From the little I do by posting quotes on FB etc...not so much.
Do you know about Sharia law in Britain? or the Blasphemy law in Ireland?
I apologize for being the one in the crowd that pokes people into thinking, seeing and getting riled up.? um, no. ----- enjoy some nature and the people in your life today.. get your camera out? and have a great day taking pictures maybe. "
did I miss anything? should I delete anything?
