The other day, the copilot and I were walking along downtown and one of us sneezed. She then asked me, “Does it bother you when atheists say ‘nothing happens when you die’?”
I thought that was just some non sequitur question. So I answered something like, “Well, that’s… not something that comes up in conversation much. Sure, it’s a belief I disagree with, but…”
She clarified that she meant atheists saying “nothing happens when you die” as a response to a sneeze.
I’m… still floored by how bizarre and passive-aggressive that is.
Sure, I can get “God bless you” being annoying and why someone would want to concoct an alternative, but why that?
