    Should I have written "Fucking wrong as fucking usual"?

    Except that you don't care so much you bring it up every now and again.

    It depends on how heavily you have vested your interests

    I feel as though I always was an atheist. God didn't make sense to me, but when someone told me to believe it, I said, 'ok, there is a god. And I must always be good, and not swear, or I will go to hell. Shit, is hell a swear? Damnit! I just fucking swore again, SHIT! Again! FUCK! AHHH!' Then my mother told me it's okay that I swore and that I won't go to hell. Okay, then, I don't really need to worry or think about God? Good, just like it was before.

    But then sometimes you need to talk about God. I think I was ten when I talked about it with my dad and I said something like 'How do we know God is there? What is the evidence?' And his response was 'I think the beauty and vastness of the world is proof of God's existence.' I was ten, so I couldn't think of anything to say back. I couldn't explain why, but I found the answer extremely unsatisfying. I knew it was crap. I knew God was crap, but it wasn't until I was older that I could explain clearly, with language, why God is crap. I feel like I was always an atheist, but when I was developed adult, it became much more explicit. People expect you to explain yourself.

    I seriously have a hard time believing that people like this actually exist.

    You really need to wrap your head around this not so subtle difference.



    Same exact thing.

    One more time.
    NO THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING.

    As previously explained: one is a lack of belief, the other is a contrary belief.

    Merely repeating your inane (and incorrect) assertion does not make it valid.
    Please (for the N[sup]th[/sup] time of asking) support this contention.

    If anyone should be banned it's you.
    For persistent and wilful stupidity.

    Wait ... John do you think they are the same thing because they use the same words just in a different order?

    wtf!?!?

    Ok once more... Do you think that:

    Is the same as:

    Because the two sentences has the same words in them with the only difference being that the words are in a different order?
