Here’s the thing about saying this to someone younger than you: it can make them feel like you are giving up on them. It also serves to underestimate the person you are speaking to. When I hear someone say this to me I think one of two things, 1) they think that I’m too stupid or not empathetic enough to understand them or what they are going through right now, or 2) they are too lazy to explain their feelings or situation to me and therefore don’t find very much value in speaking with me in the first place. It comes with a certain assumption of superiority, “I am older and therefore know more and can thus tell you what you will and will not understand when you are also older.” Just stop.

Who’s going to care about you when you don’t care about anyone? So go and search for some new sucker, sing a song, and say a prayer for me. 💋👽🎀
"I’m almost never serious, and I’m always too serious. Too deep, too shallow. Too sensitive, too cold hearted. I’m like a collection of paradoxes."
Ferdinand von Schrubentaufft
"There are a lot of debates, many citing wildly conflicting scientific research, about whether religion is “adaptive” or “maladaptive,” “evolutionarily advantageous” or not, but I think that the best answer we have right now is that religion is adaptive for some people and maladaptive for others. I can see how religion might be adaptive for me and I can also see how it might be maladaptive. Ultimately, for me, the harms outweigh the benefits, and therefore I would not choose to be religious even if I could. For others, that calculus might turn out differently.
But despite not having been religious for quite some time, and despite being very sure that there is no god, I understand that impulse to religion in a very visceral way. (By “understand,” I literally do mean that I understand it, not that I necessarily condone or accept it.)
That’s why, despite the persuasive arguments of my friends, I just can’t bring myself to anti-theism. Religion is a very poor, and even sometimes a very dangerous, way to deal with the uncertainty and the horror of life (and of death). But, truthfully, I don’t see atheists offering a better one. With a few commendable exceptions, I don’t see atheists fighting the large-scale injustice and cruelty that many people worldwide seek relief from through religion. I don’t see atheists creating meaningful secular rituals to help people celebrate or mark life transitions. (I do see atheists mocking and ridiculing people who want such rituals.) I don’t see atheists creating food banks, homeless shelters, and free childcare centers.
You could certainly argue that religious people do these things with the wrong motivations, but at least they’re fucking doing them."
