Newsflash for Religious Folks!
Atheists DON'T hate god because we don't believe he exists! News at eleven.
I was sitting outside of my workplace last week when this young guy probably in his mid-twenties walked up to me and started talking. He asked me if I was religious.
I thought to myself, "Here we go..."
Anyway, I tell him my story in a nutshell, that I was raised Southern Baptist, believed in it strongly until I was 25, started thinking about inconsistencies in the bible, thought about it for five years, and then realized I couldn't believe in the ridiculousness of religion any longer.
He tells me that he had been an atheist until about eight years ago. And get this, he actually said that back when he was an atheist that he hated god.
How the fuck can you hate something you don't believe exists?
I don't get this.
