Just a tad bit annoyed, just a little...

This is something like a rant...
There's a turning point taking place in my life right now and I find myself wanting to share this experience with someone else. Someone who wont tell me to pray when things arent going as Ive planned or give me naive optimism because they believe 'god will work it out', someone that wont give credit to the supernatural for my successes! Im meeting new people and trying so hard to see people beyond their religious beliefs but no matter the conversation it always seems to find a way to seep in and stain a perfectly good moment/conversation. Im just fed up at the moment ::rolls eyes:: Maybe I just need a break, some space...a vacation? How do you deal with the same religious bullshit everyday without wanting to crack!?

I tell them that as far as religion and ideology are concerned I have a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. I find this is the best way to avoid the expression of bigotry, intolerance, prejudice and the invasion of privacy. You don't ask and I don't tell; I don't ask and you don't tell. But if you want to play by different rules then I have several days worth of videos I'd like to show you.

If you are looking for an honest answer... if you are really feeling like religion is a total sham, you will never fully get over the stuff that bothers you about religion, and the people who buy into it.

That is the reason you feel the way you do. It's frustrating when you see things in a completely different way than those around you, but you have to understand you are out here with a lot of us... treading new ground. There have been Atheists throughout history, but never have so many of us been able to share our own non-theistic beliefs.

Just try to realize that your aggravation with your religious surroundings is a good thing. It means you aren't wishy-washy about this, you seem to have your mind made up. Being on one end of the magnet means the other side will always oppose, always push away, be grateful for that. :)

I like to just be straight with people that start up with the jesus BS. I tell them right up front that I'm an atheist and that all that talk is meaningless to me - if that offends them...well..good.
