a) Most athiests are not running from God, they're avoiding the frantic witness who hasn't changed his pitch in 1500 years. If they're hurt, it's because of the witness, not the deity.
b) A lot of athiests and agnostics don't blame God for anything.

Those who call themselves Christians are running to the comfort of a delusion. They are angry, scared or hurt by instances or circumstances in their lives such that they cannot face life honestly. Nope, no such thing as a Christian. Just folks running from facing reality.\"

I'm not blaming God for anything. I'd have to think he existed in order to do that. (If he did, I might want to have a word or two with him about the problem of evil.)

I've never believed in God, even though I went to a Christian school. I didn't know you were supposed to take the Bible literally.
12/20/2006 2:36:01 AM
Sheesh. The unmitigated gall of these people never ceases to nauseate me.
12/20/2006 2:46:51 AM
In order to blame God, I'd have to believe in him, but I don't.
You lose. Next?

God has never done me wrong. And why is that? I think it is mainly because he is not there. How can I blame a god that does not exist? It's the equivalent of you blaming Zeus.

Yeah, and God's a SLOW mutherfucka. I'm fat, middle-aged and so far out of shape I'm a rhomboid, and I can STILL outpace the bitch.
1/24/2007 6:46:13 AM
No way. I'm a psychopath, and a baby murderer, and I like to rape small animals in my spare time. That's why I'm an atheist!
1/24/2007 6:57:54 AM
How can I be running from something that doesn't exist? Christians are the only one who have hurt me.

@ hairband - Don't forget gay sex!
I thought that was just a given. Atheism = lots and lots of teh gay sex.

I don't blame God for anything. I blame organized religion for a hell of a lot, though.
I love how fundies just can't accept that some people don't believe in a god. I've had people witness to me until they were blue in the face because they thought I just didn't understand them. I understood them perfectly; I just didn't believe what they were saying. They were totally dumbfounded.

Nah, You run away from dangerous things. Religion is dangerous but a slow walk or closed door solves that. God does not exist. No fear there

NEW JUST IN : There are people who actually don't believe in your God, stop kidding yourself by thinking they are merely running from god and admit not everyone believes in an invisible sky wizard

Most atheists I know blame the follower, not the deity. They don't BELIEVE in the deity, hence they cannot be running from him.

Do these people not realize that athiests don't believe in God?
Plus, agnostics are willing to believe in god. If he exists, that is.

There's no such thing as a sane fundie either.
11/27/2009 6:22:48 AM
I love it when people tell me what I think and feel and believe.

So now I don't exist?
Is that a step up or down from telling me that I am pure evil?
6/7/2012 1:15:49 PM
I am amazed that so many people think they understand others better than those others understand themselves.
6/7/2012 2:24:38 PM
Funny, I don't remember getting hurt and blaming it on God. I don't recall running from God, either.
How can I blame something on, or run from, someone who I lack belief in?
1/26/2013 1:26:49 PM
How do you run away from an omnipresent entity?
1/29/2013 2:48:19 AM
Those who call themselves atheists or agnostic are running from God.
So very true. I'm also running from the Easter bunny and the Tooth Fairy.
