Do As We Say, Not As We Do

Here’s a fascinating, albeit anecdotal, conversation between an atheist and his two co-workers (who also happen to be identical twins):

Twin #1: “So, [my name], you think about what we said on Tuesday?”
Me: “Not really.”
Twin #1: “Come on, man. This is important stuff.”
Twin #2: “Yeah. You wanna go to [hell]?”
Me: “Nope.”
Twin #1: “I mean, I just don’t get you.”
Me: “What do you mean?”
Twin #1: “If you don’t believe in God, where do you get your morals from?”
Me: “Uh…”
Twin #2: “Yeah. The only way to know right from wrong is with God.”

Me: “I don’t think so.”
Twin #1: “Well, it’s still true, dude. It doesn’t matter what you think.”
Twin #2: “Right. You should… hang on.”
