There was a post on cafe bitch, asking believers AND non-believers, if they felt strongly enough to die for their religion, or lack of. First of all, I should've known it was a bait-and-trap post, but I took the bait. I told her, that I have two boys to raise, and that words are not worth dying for. If somebody had a gun to my head, I would say I believe in flying green monkeys, if that's what they wanted to hear. It doesn't mean anything and it doesn't change the fact that I don't believe in their god. She went on with her condescending little remarks about how I must not feel strongly enough in atheism, and "Hmmm, it makes one wonder." Stupid little nimrod. I told her, ONCE AGAIN that words don't mean anything, and I would do whatever it takes at that moment to save my life. I proceeded to tell her, "If you want to be a martyr and die for something that's not there, It's your "god" given right." I don't know how anybody else feels, but I would never stand there and be shot down, if all I had to do was say some words. I may not be THE brightest crayon in the box, but DAMN. Am I alone in this???
