Okay first things first, I’m an atheist and I think that you know that because you don’t even introduce yourself you simply start talking about religion, which I can only assume is because you found one of my comments I have left somewhere which I found silly doing this but hey if you want to have this conversation fine.
First: You’ve met John? Is John your friend, your acquaintance but more important if John ask you to throw yourself from a bridge would you do it? And let’s not forget that the Bible is a collection of books written by different authors in different times, in different places and not even all the authors agreed on everything so by referring to John you must have full knowledge of John, his life, his customs, along with the rest of the other people if you are gonna quote him claiming that he is right.
And I haven’t met John neither nor I want to. If you’re gonna reply me use your own words please.
Second let’s say that someone sacrifices for you, would you like that? Because if you do, you have issues , me I don’t want anyone to pay for my mistakes, my actions good or bad are mine and mine alone and I won’t let anyone else take the credit from them because my mistakes are part of my personal growth and my achievements are the fruit of my efforts and I respond for them. So if you expect me to say, Oh hey JC thanks for taking the bullet from me, “You are out of your mind.” Why on earth I would want that. If you’re okay with letting someone else pay for your mistakes you are a bad person independently if you are religious or not.
Third: to have salvation? To think that, you actually have to believe that without Jesus everyone is a sinner(every child, every elder, every person) you’re problem isn’t only with me is with all the other 66,68% of the people of this planet (or what you think that everyone believes in Jesus?), why don’t you go and tell them that and let’s see what they tell you.
Fourth: God created me? I was created by my parents and I can prove it (that dam DNA no matter how many times I shower I never rips off) can you prove that god created me(An actual physical prove). When it comes to matters where we don’t have any empirical evidence it is absurd to claim argue that you know something 100% because you end up making a fool of yourself.
Fifth: Don’t you think I don’t know what you’re doing? I’m an atheist do you really think that I’m gonna change my way of think and see life just for a two lines comment? Seriously? What were you expected that I would read this and realize that you’re right and I’m wrong? Do you’re ideas are really that fragile?
Sixth: Do you know what you’re doing? If you’re faith is so strong why it feel threaten by what I think. And of course you’re gonna deny this but let’s not forget you came to my page for this very fact (otherwise you would be having this conversation with me). Melissa I’m gonna be honest with you I don’t care about what you or John believe (I don’t care about you’re prayers or thought nor anything) either if you believe in god or aliens or whatever it ain’t gotta do anything with me. What? you expect me that ten or twenty years from now I’m gonna tell my friend how I changed this girl’s ideology (a girl that I’ve never even met). I’m gonna tell you how this is gonna end, at some point you’re gonna quit this conversation with a certain sense of disappointment because I’m not gonna change my mind and you can’t neither. But unlike you I don’t need you to think like me, nor find any pleasure or superiority satisfaction in you thinking like me.
I’m a different person from you and my advise is: “deal with it.”
