asks: I will be praying for you, I mean, that's the most I can do. Of course you expect me to say that. I know what it is to have those same frustrations, I was an atheist for 18 years before I came to know Jesus. I will admit that in all that time I was a skeptic I kept saying those same things and totally missed the problem of what is really down on in our world. God is real, and He is just in everything He does and He is sovereign. If you want to bash me all over your blog because I said that Christianity isn't a crutch...be my guest, man. But what has been known about God has been made plain to you, just like He made it plain to me. Everything proves God whether you want to believe that or not.

It is true that I did expect a cliche full (of unfounded assertions that do not answer anything) response. Sadly I was not disappointed. I was a christian for over 20 years before I came to know reason, so I’m not surprised. Still, thanks for responding (as opposed to answering). It has been demonstrated time and time again that truth is not always comforting, that is why delusion is so popular. Sadly that is just how it is.
That being said, remember:
26,000 children died of hunger today. What makes you think god will listen to your prayers? Either he doesn’t care or he doesn’t exist. That is why belief is a crutch, one that meets no real needs at all.
This is not about thrashing you, it is about truth and reality. It is about taking responsibility for ourselves and others considering the obvious FACT that no supernatural being will do it for us.
To finish I will say that just as you will be praying for me I will continue to think for both, I mean, that’s the least I could do.
Take care but above all take action. That is what really matters.
