A Young Girl Confronts an Atheist

A Moral Inside Humour

A friend sent me this as a joke, but considering the source, I expected something more than just a laugh, and I was not disappointed.

See what you think:

An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned to her and said,"Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had started to read her book, replied to the stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the atheist. "How about why there is no God, no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.

"OK," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but first let me ask you a question. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff--grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"

The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea."

To which the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss why there is no God, no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death, when you don't know shit?" And then she went back to reading her book.

There are so many things wrong with this, the first being the assumption that all atheists only live to contradict those with religions, or who believe in heaven, hell and God. We have a lot more in our life than the lack of religion, and the fact that you peg us all as bad people is very insulting and makes me like religion as a whole less because of such stupidity. Second, no little girl would say that as a response. If for some reason there was a atheist that was that mean, and I'm certain there are a fair amount, but the ratio of good and bad people is around the same for people with religions, if you understand my meaning in that horribly worded sentence. The point of all of this is I'm an atheist, and I'm insulted but I do not care if you believe what you believe, and I'm not going to try to prove you wrong, because it's disrespectful to say "Hey, your beliefs are wrong and obviously I'm right, so you're gonna suffer for eternity. Have a nice life, sinner!" That is what I get from a lot of people, and I know this isn't gonna get past moderation, and if by some *miracle* it does, I might have a little more faith in God.

You need to get over yourself. There is only your assumption about what atheists live to do. I don't see anything in this posting that indicates that. And the atheists that I know have a lot of other things going on in their lives.

You do not know what a little girl might say under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Nor do I.

I don't see where the atheist was being mean.

Me posting your comment is no miracle either.

God loves you immeasurably whether you choose to believe it or not.

Your suffering for eternity is not up to me to judge. I hope that nobody suffers for eternity, including both you and me.

God Bless You

Replace the word "atheist" with "christian" and it would've still worked. This is funny but is not that witty. Looks like something a 3rd grader or a christian wrote.
