So, the other day I came out as an atheist to my family. Aunt didn't take it well at all. My mom took it well, Dad took it okay. He kept thinking I was agnostic (which I had to dispel that notion right off) Then he said, "Well, atheists believe in nothing." Again, I had to tell him that wasn't true. Then he said, "Well, what makes the grass and trees grow? Sure, man can plant a seed but only God can make things grow!"
After looking at him for a few moments with an astonished look on my face, he said "Could be just the conditions of the planet, too." Facepalm
LOL Just thought I'd share that with the board.
