How do you like that? An atheist told me that I’m the reason that he’s not a Christian. More accurately, “you're the perfect example of why I am no longer a Christian.”
Does it surprise you at all that an atheist would say something like that?
What if I said, “Richard Dawkins is such a jerk that I could never be an atheist.”
Would that seem like a logical thing to say? Of course I’m a Christian so an expectation for reasonable thought is set pretty low. Still, I know that whether I choose atheism or not can have nothing to do with the character of atheists.
Atheists in general and the ones posting here see themselves as highly intelligent people, yet to say, I don’t like your personality so I can no longer be a Christian, well, what can one say?
Jesus taught A, B and C.
A Christian is someone who agrees with what Jesus taught.
An atheist might say that s/he cannot agree with what Jesus taught and therefore he cannot be a Christian.
An atheist might say that what Jesus taught is in error and therefore she cannot be a Christian.
But this atheist says, it’s because of people like you Makarios that I cannot be a Christian. He didn’t say “Because there’s no evidence for God,” or even “Because there’s no evidence for Jesus, I cannot be a Christian.” He said, Because of people like you, I cannot be a Christian.
Reason and logic are supposed to be the sole domain of the atheist but they seem to be in short supply here.
In fact, if this is how atheists think, I don’t think I could ever be an atheist.
