There’s a joke usually directed towards vegans.

Question: How do you know a person is a vegan?

Answer: Because they’ll tell you.

Recently I came to realize that same joke can be directed towards Atheists.

Question: How do you know a person is an Atheist?

Answer: Because they’ll usually tell you. Followed by calling “god”, “dog, as well as trying to dispute your beliefs all within a 10 minute conversation.

Growing up I attended Baptist, Pentecostal and Non-Denominational churches but I’m not the most religious person, but I’m also not Agnostic or Atheist.  I have my beliefs and tend to keep those to myself.

I have several friends who are Atheists and will give D.L. Hughley a run for his money. Although we share differences of opinions, I don’t feel the need to ridicule them for their decisions. Unfortunately a few of the Atheists I’ve recently come across have been quite outspoken when it comes to belittling believers. Not to be confused with “Beliebers”. They deserve to be belittled. It seems as though some Atheists still find it hard to believe that  everyone doesn’t think the way they do.  Every conversation is always a challenge of beliefs.

“Well if your “dog” actually exists, then why is there suffering in the world?”

First of all, dog?  I can’t count how many times an Atheist has felt the need to refer to God as “dog”. I get it, you’re spelling it backwards, kudos for you. But it just makes you look immature.  It’s these types of Atheists that drive me crazy.

I truly get it, Atheists.  You’re free to believe or not believe in whatever you want, but why is it necessary to come off like a pompous jerk?  The easiest way not to get people to hear your argument is when you try to invalidate theirs.  Just as your lack of belief system is important to you, someone’s religious beliefs could be equally important to them. There’s truly no need to be an asshole about it.  If you respect my beliefs, I’ll respect your lack of beliefs. It’s truly that simple.

I’m also not trying to single out Atheists. Fanatics come in all shapes, sizes and denominations. For every mention of  “Atheists” in this post, change it to whatever religion you feel appropriate.  Because I also know some asshole Buddhists, Muslims, Catholics, and Christians.

What you believe or don’t believe doesn’t affect how I live or pray.

    There is a difference between a christian and a fake christian. You pointed out a bunch of stuff that is not christian related… Aids are normally spread by same sex genders but just because catholics say condoms are evil doesn’t mean Africans has to believe them nor does it make the catholics who say that right.

    There are very few people who claim to be christian who think prayer is better then a hospital. A “REAL” Christian knows God provided doctors/hospitals with the tools and intelligence to help the human body. What you mention is a fake christian who is cheap and doesn’t know the first thing about the bible.

    The Indonesian schoolgirls … I have no clue what you are talking about but that has nothing to do with the christian belief.

    Global Warming is something Al Gore came up with that has been debunked. The reason for Global warming is because under water valcanoes in the artic are becoming more active melting the ice caps causing things to get warmer.

    Evoultion is a theory, it has never been proven. They say it takes millions of years for something to evolve which no one can ever say even in the past 10 generations can prove they witnessed. I could Go on and on about how evolution is only a theory but you can do the research yourself. The Bible and God has been taken outta schools and it God so bad that most schools don’t even allow the pledge of alligance anymore cause it has the Name God in it.. Yet us christian tax payers have to pay for evoultion among a ton of other things that we don’t agree with to be taught in school..

    Abortion is wrong rather you are religious or not. You are taking a life period.. That is murder.. that fact you see nothing wrong with that makes you an a immoral human being.

    Athetists have plenty of effect. Just like gays… There are more Straight people and Christians in this country then gays and atheists.. The reason Atheists Got God kicked outta school is cause they threw a bigger fit just like the gays wanting marriage rights. Athesists is the reason when society and this country is going to crap because you have no morals w/e so ever and the morals that used to get taught in school from the bible were taken away cause you didn’t want people believing in something you couldnt.

    Your last statement was very hypocritical.. You want us christians to stop saying God is real as the truth but yet you can’t telling people God isn’t real as your truth. Not one person in this world can comprehend or prove any facts on how everything was Created. The Big bang “THEORY” is a “THEORY” how can you preach that as the truth when it’s even called a “THEORY”? No one lived when that happened.. It also doesn’t explain that is the big bang theory did happened how did it happen. You need 3 things, Time , Space & Matter for something to come into existance..

    Anyways, You are free to believe in what you want but you and no one else in this world knows how everything started other then christians.
