I was taught to just put 1 period at the end of each sentence, not 3.

Athiests are close-minded? That's very funny.

"....they all seem to be so close-minded!....."

Oh look! A punch line in search of a joke.

How about leaving them alone?

Using the English language correctly is an excellent way to communicate with atheists.

Try providing a shred of proof. That would be a strong opener.

Looks like they'd have been better off going to the Gardening section.

How about you leave people to their own beliefs like we leave you to yours. If an atheist decides he wants to believe in God one day that's his own business.

What's with idiots and spelling 'atheist' 'athiest'?`

Something tells me you don't really respect the views of atheists if all you want to do is convert them.

Casey F, You deal with atheist people the same way you deal with theist people.
We are not horses, do not presume to "lead" us in ANY way.
How does it hurt you to see us? This is just absurd.
You can no more "guide" us in any "right" direction, than you can "grow" us in a garden, We are people, Human beings. Please learn to respect that fact.
If we seem closed minded you must have a very bizzare deffinition of "closed minded".
Talking about anything with us does NOT "plant a seed".
IF you want to plant seeds, try taking up gardening

Laying off the asinine apologetiecs might be a reasonable start.

"they all seem to be so close-minded!"

Well, now you know how they feel about you! A step in the right direction, I guess...

Only fundies expect normal people to be monomaniacs in a spiritual Chaos. Like themselves....

"...but i guess just talking to them about it plants a seed? right?"

Many of us were once religious. The seeds were planted in fertile soil but may have been overwatered.

Here's a tip. Use correct punctuation, spelling and syntax so as to not appear to be a retard.

The athiest are obviously the most athy of all the athies around.

Superlative athy!

I think that you wouldn't have so much attention if you didn't try to proselytise so much.

Meh...seems like a universal "how do I get people to see things the way I do". All of us have this desire.

Just tell them the bible is true because the bible says so. That'll convince them immediately.

Mrs. Antichrist

Incidentally, it saddens us just as much to see people centering their lives around ancient myths.

"Closed-minded" is a word I'd used to describe more Christians than atheists...
