I have to be done with talking about religion on Facebook, it’s worse than anon trolls because I can see who it’s coming from. I have a former co-worker who changed his profile picture to the Atheist “A” and announced that he is an Atheist. He was concerned that some of his family might be upset because he comes from a religious family. His father used to be a minister who became a Pagan later on. In the discussion we have several people who jump in with…
"I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist"
"Atheism has to prove something doesn’t exist, religion just has to prove a single instance. Much easier to do."
"(random bible quote)"
"I’d rather believe just in case"
"I don’t have enough balls to be an atheist."
"I’m agnostic" (AG1)
"Me too!" (AG2)
(Me) “Gnostics don’t exist, everyone is agnostic”
(AG2) *link to Wikipedia article on Gnostic*
(AG1) “People who believe in religion can’t be agnostic. Don’t lump me in with those religious crazies.”
(Me) *mental face palm* (Send message to explain to AG1 what I mean about agnostic being a qualifier and gnostic being one that shouldn’t exist. Explain it means religious people are on equal ground as Atheist in the ability to know of God existing, no one can do it.)
(AG1 replies) “no one can be an agnostic Atheist!”
Done…. just done.
