That was an anonymous message left on the Ask Me Anything page.
We may have a difference of opinions and I'm not talking between the writer of the above message and me. There are fellow Atheists who may have ignored this question. That this person was asking a disingenuous question and only wanted a forum to talk the god talk.
I'm guessing the person who made question/statement read a portion of my blog and then went out of their way to contact me. They accepted my invitation (in that provocative way I have) to have a discussion. Many times I talk to Atheists about Atheism, but what I really like to discuss is Theism with Theists. I like to believe that I have something to offer. Will this person suddenly suddenly stop being a Theist once they read my response? Probably not. But this is Purgatory and one's best efforts may come to nothing - I accept that premise.
Here is my response to the author of the question.
I read what you left on the Ask Me Anything page and what strikes me is that you seem to be someone who wants to live a moral life. Me too. I have have a family, friends, and co-workers that deserve to have the best possible world to live in. You have people around you that deserve the best possible world to live in also.
What I think is that people in different places at different times faced similar problems and felt in similar ways as we do. They felt about their god(s) the same way as you do about your God. They felt the same rush at their gods' altar as you do in church. They looked at the night sky and saw the hands of their own gods. You look up at the same night sky and see Jesus. My point is - feeling isn't the way to understand the world. Taking a deep breath and hearing what alternative viewpoints say and critically thinking about them is, what I've found, a good way of navigating life. What you feel very strongly about now may not be the truth. Please entertain that idea.
Ultimately, I'm a guy who wants to make people laugh and for them do a bit of thinking along the way.
I hope you have found my reply useful.
