My reply:
"Thanks for the info. I have always been open to possibilities, but after a helluva lot of thought and research, I have come to the conclusion that this God you talk about does not exist.  That there might be some sort of sentient being who exists in some sort of magic realm outside of the known Universe is unlikely, but of course impossible to disprove, and if you wish to attribute every event that occurs throughout the world and throughout history to such a critter, I would not stop you, no matter how stupid and unsubstantiable such a belief is.
 
All religions and all so-called sacred books would appear to be entirely the invention of humans, without any need for divine assistance or any indication of supernatural input.  The Hebrew and Christian bibles, for example, are so filled with contradictions, tribal propaganda, stolen stories, and completely wrong ideas that if in fact these books did benefit from divine input, the divinity involved would have to be either a monster or a moron; certainly not an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving being. And the majority of gods that humans have invented have been logically impossible beings, necessitating great feats of mental judo in order to rationalize ideas that have been shown to be patently false. 
 
Personally, I cannot imagine a more useless being, or a bigger waste of human energy and time"

Got this text from a friend of mine. We don't agree on a lot.  Sometimes I wonder why I bother.

"Ask God to show himself to you. Be open to the possibilities. For some reason, I needed to tell you this. That is all."

Out of the blue more or less.  Annoying.
