Joke of the week

From Gunjesh Singh, Quora:

An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned 
to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike 
up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total 
stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the atheist. "How about why there is no God, 
or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.

"Okay," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask 
you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same
stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns 
out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"

The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, 
thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea." To which 
the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss 
God, Heaven and Hell, or life after death, when you don't know shit?"

And then she went back to reading her book.

This is a sad (and pathetic) joke for theists trying to make atheists sound like the jerks, when in fact, it is theists who bother strangers about believing in god, rather than atheists bothering strangers about not believing in god. I have yet to be stopped by a stranger or even see someone start a conversation with a stranger about atheism, much less hostilely implying there is no god. However, I personally have been stopped at least dozens of times, if not hundreds of times, by theists asking me if I've found Jesus or if I've found peace in Allah, often aggressively and hostilely as if challenging me to say no.

A joke like this only works if it's plausible or on a group of people who want to feel better about being assholes towards people who don't believe the same as them, i.e., projecting their own assholish tendencies onto people they don't like, but do NOT have those assholish tendencies.
