Work and atheism-related dilemma

Posted on June 28, 2011 at 10:59pm 8 Comments

My fiance and I are both atheists. Recently, he had a discussion at work about religion, and admitted he was an atheist. Most of his coworkers are okay with it, one is teasing him about it (they're friends; it's what they do), but the last one is being an absolute arsehole.

 

For the last two full days, this kid (he's 19) has been harassing my fiance about his religion. "Why don't you believe in god?", "How do you not believe in god?", "If you dropped a wallet with $5000 in it,…

I'm trying, believe me. Weather's been totally crappy this weekend - rain, clouds, low temps (upper 40s-low 50s). But I'm fine otherwise, thanks. Hope to chat soon!

Oh wow, so really recent.  Nice.

Yeah, I can see how the instant you catch yourself in that level of hypocrisy ... major introspection time.

 

I don't know that I can say there was anything that 'did it' for me.  It was just everything about Christianity.  I never exactly deconverted, because I don't think I was ever anything I would consider a believer.

Just ... I dunno ... all of the stories.  None of the stories they told us in CCD sounded any more plausible than anything out of Grimm's Fairy Tales.  I had the advantage of being buried in science books from long before kindergarten.  My parents bought a ton of National Geographic kids' books about science and other educational subjects, for my brother who's two years older than me.  That's the sort of thing I learned to read from.

Even when I was looking into Paganism, it was as an atheist.  I was mostly just looking into the extraneous nonsense around the edges: aura sensing, the sort of reality-manipulation through intention of spells, energy manipulation ... stuff like that.  I never took the idea of any of the Pagan gods any more seriously than I had the Christian one.
