This was a very unruly comment that was posted on yahoo and Idk why it got to me, but it did.. How do you feel about this?

god is real....
and you know it...
if not who created you...
who gave you your body and mind..
your family....
your life...
your fellings...
its just wrong if you just ask that there is no god 
god is real
he gave you LIFE..
and just as easy he can TAKE IT AWAY...
he is the one who cares about you
only he can hear you...

just go pray for forgivness

I left it as is. No changing of typos.. and for anyone interested, this is the link to the website I seen it on..

Postscript:

I've seen this kind of crap on discussion boards with semi-frequency.  It's pretty obviously an appeal both to emotion and to old programming, the kind the speaker is reasonably sure (justifiably) that his or her audience has been exposed to.  The goal is to reboot that old programming, refresh it and the fear that accompanied it almost without exception.  That person wants their audience to abandon reason and logic and come back to unsubstantiated warm fuzzies and the welcoming, suffocating arms of the church.

Maybe it's not very generous or kind or whatever of me, but my own knee-jerk reaction is a hard-nosed bitch-slap of a response, reminding the speaker that their school of thought and mine have no intersection set, something like the "prove it" comment I made earlier.  There are plenty of options, though from where I sit, they should be kept terse and short.

People like that are a drain we can do well without.

Yes, God is real. He gave you your life so cower in fear because he can take it away. Is that what they call "god fearing," like in "he is a god fearing man?" I call it superstition. Only god can hear you. If you are inside your mind praying to god, then it's YOU who hears you. Now let's bow our heads and all start talking to ourselves. There's nobody there. When I was very young I used to think Casper the friendly ghost was there. Later, they told me it was the Holy Ghost. Oh, my! What confusion. Sins against the Holy Ghost will not be forgiven. How can you "sin" against something you know nothing, or very little about? (I will chose Casper.) When you get the dogma and brainwashing out of your mind, what is it that you are praying for forgiveness for? Even when they indoctrinated me and taught me the Bible, none of this was explained in any logical way. FAITH was just believing and excepting without any proof. In other words - they made it all up!

Yet one more in a series of assertions without justification or substantiation.  The person posting that comment likely knows nothing about cosmogony, abiogenesis or evolution and doesn't want to know it.  He or she was probably taught to sing, "Jebus loves me" from the time they were old enough to talk, and the indoctrination is fully and properly welded to their brains.

I would pity such people if I were into pity, but I'm not.  I might tell such a person, simply, "Prove it ... and leave your bible at home when you do," but the level of ignorance represented by such people dissuades me even from engaging in conversation with them.  I have better things to do with my time ... and so do you.
