Which is, and has always been, YOUR choice. Don't come crying to us if you're not willing to pay the price for your sin. We've told you and told you and told you the way. You cannot claim ignorance, or even innocence. Your reject the way, the truth and the life. It's your choice. Don't come crying to us.

You still really and truly don't get it do you.
I DO NOT BELIEVE, AND HAVE NEVER BELIEVED, THAT A GOD OR GODS EXIST, OR HAVE EVER EXISTED.
I am not the slightest, tiniest, bit worried about going to hell [or any other afterlife] because I do not believe
that they exist. And have never ever believed that they exist.
I don't care about sin, because sin is a religious concept that only makes sense if you believe in the existence
of a god. I DON'T BELIEVE IN THE EXISTENCE OF ANY GODS!
What I do care about is morality, which has nothing whatsoever to do with god/s.
What you don't get is ALL that I [we atheists] see is religious PEOPLE, not gods, telling us that we are going
to burn in hell [either briefly or for eternity] when we die, or god shows up and ends the world.
I have no reason whatsoever to believe that what you say is true [and an immensity of reasons to believe it to be false]
but I/we still have to deal with the fact that YOU believe it.
Can you not for one moment comprehend our point of view? Is that truly beyond you?
There are thousands of religions out their all claiming to have the truth and ALL of them lack any sort of valid evidence
or justification for doing so. I have no more reason to believe that the god of the bible exists than I have reason to
believe that Thor or Odin exist. You say that you have 'told us the way'... Well so has every other religion.
I don't believe them, and I don't believe you.
And I have no rational justification for believing them, and none for believing you either.
So I do not worry about meeting your god, because your god is just as fictional as all the other gods.
I do worry about meeting you, because you apparently believe that I deserve to die in an imminent apocalypse.
Murdered by the god you claim to worship.
Your 'joke' basically reads as "Hey you all deserve to be murdered and that's going to happen real soon unless you
kiss my gods ass sufficiently, so drop down and pucker up it's brown-nosing time!".
it's not your imaginary god I worry about. it's you, and people as whacked out as you.
Who believe that I/we deserve to die.
If we atheists all believed that all you theists deserved to die, wouldn't that freak you out?
