How many times are atheists gonna hear the word "God" and blow up in a hateful retaliation?
I have nothing against atheists in particular, but you acidic atheists, like some of the friends I recently got rid of, who ridicule believers in any way possible and make them feel like garbage, are seriously the WORST kind of people.
It sucks that children died, it sucks when ANY people die.
You're mocking the OP because of one little insignificant statement that has NOTHING to do with the question asked.
If there's something that all decent people, believers and atheists, should agree on, its humbleness.
I'm not sure if I should apologize for making you sick or not, but regardless, it doesn't sound good and I hope for a quick recovery.
I'm not an atheist. And I have nothing against hearing the word "God". But I do react when someone thanks God because there were no fatalities around their house, but didn't mind that God let children die a little farther away in the same event.
The OP told later that she actually didn't thank God, just something she says. That's fine.
I didn't ridicule the OP, if I ridiculed someone, it would have been that God. The OP has no part in that.
I agree for the most part. Even though my baseline is that I value every type of life the same, may it be animals or human beings, I'm not too sorry when murderers die, I admit. I guess some people just lose their innocence in my eyes.
As said, I did not mock the OP.
Humbleness is a fine thing in retaining peace, but it can get in the way of honesty. I prefer to be honest and disliked rather than not be honest. This is mostly my own problem, though. I hope you can respect my honesty in what I just said about myself.
It's there when I'm not debating.
No, I think I was being quite honest and logical in my behavior. I'm not saying I'm any holier than the way I act.
