Default Religious mass-email comebacks

Having a great many evangelicals in my family, I am prone to get a lot of those overly-relgious type e-mails.

As of the moment, I've tried asking nicely, I've tried being mean, but I can't get these people to stop. Now I'm wondering, is there a good source of athiest type e-mails that I can start spamming my relatives with?

Ok, kittenrecipies will be for the people I don't like.

What I really need is some preachy, holier-than-thou, atheism. I don't want to be overly rude to my family but I would like to make them think.

I suspect the folks over at the Rational Response Team might have either the materials, or the links to the materials, you seek.

I have a better idea. Block the e-mail addresses of the people spamming you religious e-mails. If they ask you why you did so tell them it is because they aren't sending you any correspondence worth reading.

Indeed.

I even reported one or two and had their e-mails shut down. Amazing what that does to your unwanted crap.

I just respond substantively to stuff. I rarely get religious spam, but I get a lot of passed on warnings of doom and such. I reply to all with SNOPES links, or other debunking, and explain why forwarding this crap is spreading baseless fear etc.

They usually take me off their lists after the second time.

I would guess he reported them to the email provider. Some of them actually care what you send and don't want their domain being used for spam.

Some of the people I can ignore, and do. My real problem is with my family, I still have to use politics with them. Their modus operandi is to take me off the mailing list when I complain, and then add my back in a couple of months.

RRS is definitely a quality source for atheistic spam. Just don't actually read what you're c/p'ing or you might wind up as hilariously retarded as they are.

no its not kev, rational response are not that well thought out or that good at argumentation, they are a bunch of fundy dipshits, and I just want to point out that this is coming from a metaphysical naturalist.

There is no easy way to respond to people that you care about, I would suggest a form letter, take the time, to outline briefly why you are an atheist, be it lack of faith, the misplacement of faith, the incoherence of the god concept, the PoE, etc, and perhaps a polite message about why you dont appreciate them spamming you with the god stuff. then just send out that email in response.


But rational response is a bunch of dipshits.

Some thread on RnR is following the latest RRS mastahpiece, something about "debaptism," which is evidently an atheist ceremony that involves pooping on a Bible. I don't know why my atheist minister didn't tell me about this at our weekly atheist meetings.

I don't know what happened to the old Internet Infidels library, but just having access to that to cherry pick for articles to send in return would work for me....but I don't have the problem. Family-wise, I lucked out. They are, philosophically, all over the apathist map, so we've devised a means of tolerance that happens to include oddballs like theists.

So, my curiosity spurred by chuck's assessment, I actually pulled up their page, which I hadn't planned on. :shakechucksworld:

Saw this:

"...So I said to her, 'Baby, we need to take this to the next level', but she tells me, 'No, I have to take my time. I don't want to screw this one up. I mean, I haven't even got my Feat progression outlined yet, much less done my min/max damage output metrics yet..."

Yeah bey, I'd like to always let cooler heads and thoughful contemplation prevail, but sometime I have this overwhelming urge to be a smartass. Which is probably why I'm not that popular with these people.

So RSS definitely has the smartass angle convered, now if I can find something that has the thoughtful angle going on.

RSS trades in oafish offensiveness more than clever putdowns. There's plenty of ass (one of the founders is currently selling hers, in fact, in a Nevada brothel), but none of it is smart.

So, I went over to look for this thread, but I can't find it because I'm dumb, but I did find it kind of funny that thee first page of their Realpolitik forum is, thanks to coberst, nearly identical to the first page of our Philosophy forum. I am a bit disappointed that we didn't get michelnostradamus69's latest crazy spam, though.
