The other day, someone i'm very close to had just found out i'm an atheist. So she looked at me and said, "Katie, where does a rainbow come from?" I know it has something to do with the sun and a prism of colors, but i dont know everything about it and I don't know how it works exactly, so I took a moment before I answered. Seeing that I didn't answer right away though, and seeing me ponder it, she isaid , "see? Nobody knows. It's god." And I said, "No, its just a prism of reflecting light and stuff." But since i said 'and stuff' she got that i didn't quite understand it all the way so she said, "see, you don't know." It was frustrating because christians, creationists, think that that if you don't answer automatically you do not know what your talking about. I didn't answer after that. I let her go on believing it was the "all mighty god" but i just couldn't keep talking with her because it was just difficult. I'm not saying i'm less in my atheism, i am still quite as strong in my, well, NON-beliefs, but I just think its ridiculous that they are so ... i dont know the word im looking for... stubborn I guess? I dont know.
Well, i feel I better read up on my science facts for the next time I get cornered and questioned by another creationist or christian. I should know my facts next time. But JUST because i don't know all my facts doesn't mean its god. right? Right. Gosh. They are SO frustrating!
