Not that you all care, but I am shedding many tears right now. You don't know how difficult it is for strangers to tell me I may never get better. You all don't know what God can do. Sure, I would love to go to heaven. My purpose here is not finished yet. I am so sad not because I was just reminded multiple times that I am dying and may never get better. .....I want to know why. I had no idea there were people out there who would want to purposefully hurt my feelings, discourage my fight to stay alive, and break my heart. Most nonbelievers I meet, even atheists, have been so kind to me. I thought they were great people. Some of you are starting to shift my opinion of the atheist community.
Sorry, but the emotional blackmail doesn't work.
You came here and YOU used YOUR suffering as an argument for your god, and how wonderful and loving you claim he is. You put it on the table as a major pillar of your faith, so quit being surprised that THAT is what we are discussing and debating.
You can't say "THIS is why I believe", and then get all upset when we challenge it.
Contrary to what you would love to believe, not one of us here wants you to be in pain. We would all love it for you to be well - it's why those with ability like Astreja are offering advice.
And part of why we challenge is your frankly shitty, patronising, and self-aggrandising response to ParkingPlaces, where you said that HE was lying when he would trade places with you....but that of course YOU would die for HIM, no problem. Can you see what a smug little prig that makes you look? How insulting it was to him?
And frankly, go right ahead and pray for me and my family, and our health. Your prayers have done fuck-all for your health, so clearly they will have zero effect on me. But if that's how you want to throw away your time, go ahead.

I have been a LOT harsher with you than is my normal style. But you came here, using your terrible life as a weapon to fight for your god, then jump straight to emotional blackmail when we turn your weapon against you. So in part I am annoyed at your duplicitous tactics. I'm annoyed at the way you casually dismissed PPs offer, then made it clear you think that ONLY Christians are really nice enough to make such offers. But the most anger I feel is against the people who have brainwashed you into the view that - as you clearly showed there - that atheists aren't properly human, aren't worthy of your respect. You'll pray for us, you say, whether we want it or not - I guess that makes it abundantly clear how much real respect you have for us, or how much you really want to learn.
So yeah, I've been harsh in this post. But you gave me damn good cause.
