My Mom gets mad at me. She keeps telling me that as one gets older, one's religion gets stronger. I just get more militant. I was with a Catholic woman for 4+ years, and it didn't work out in ways I've described elsewhere. With all of eternity and all of the universe supposedly at their fingertips, the world I entered by being with her was so so so so small, and I was always treated like an intruding stranger. She asked me near the end if I thought there was a historical Jesus. I said I didn't know, but it didn't matter to me. Because we have Roman law codes from the time, there was no tomb to be full or empty. She got mad. I showed her a Bart Ehrman lecture where he discussed the different goals of the different gospels. She got mad.

Not really. Yeah, it can get tiresome, but the look on their faces after it's done is always worth it.

All debate stops once they state you must have faith because you cannot debate facts and evidence with someone who believes in faith alone for acceptance.

I don't tend to start debates, but if a Christian finds out I'm am atheist and confronts me, I'm not gonna back down from one. Right of the rip ill quote exodus 21 that condones slavery, paul's letters that make women second class citizens, the psalm that says you should be happy while smashing the heads of your enemy's infants, and the command to kill witches. Most Christians have never been confronted with this stuff and they just kinda stare at you. Some who have a bit of debate experience will do the religious tapdance, tell you that you are taking it out of context, and have some elaborate story to explain it away.

Yeah, like there's a way to take 2 pages of slavery instructions out of context

No. Not frustrating at all. All credit goes to Peter Boghossian. His books have given me the debating skills necessary to prevail.

The one I hate most of all is negotiating which place to order lunch from. Exhausting.

Usually roll my eyes and then question all their facts till they call me a non believer.
