And it is irrelevant to your original statement that your mother wouldn't have died had you let the proselytizers in.

We all won the lottery. The problem is that some are persuaded to throw their winnings away on the assurance that Hank is going to give them a million dollars, after they leave town.

Why be hostile to them? I love it when the JW's and Mormons knock on my door. I don't take my atheism door to door, but if these people want to come to my door and discuss religion, I'm in. They are inevitably polite and I am always polite in return. But I do have quite a lot to say on the subject of religion and I have consistently noticed that if I make a valid point to a religious person that they had never considered before, they invariably tend to get quiet. Which allows me to make even further points. They always leave unhappy even though I have entered into a discussion with them, which is exactly what they were hoping for. I am only sorry that they almost never return. I often go years between visits.

Why be hostile to someone who repeatedly comes to your door after you have repeatedly asked them not to?

I think the answer is contained in the question.

I have found that the easiest way of dealing with them is to attack and destroy their basic beliefs. I actually wish they would come back and discuss it some more, but they never do.

Now no door-to-door salesmen just centuries of evil, facts and truth, is? there a medicine for evil ?

And what is the end of centuries of evil, and at what time, in your life time, yes man and women are temporary, who over look of mans progress centuries of evil. Do you think aliens or ?

Let be intelligent this, about human progress in the well-being of our fellow man!
even atheist believe in sometime every things that are temporary?

Who? answer for gunman from Las Vegas, he kill himself? Let be intelligent about this!

Remember sound questions provide answers

no door-to-door salesmen intelligent questions
peace
You say this as if you know what it means.

But your posts here don't evince either sound questions or sound answers. You're just floating around contradicting yourself, saying nothing definitive, and apparently thinking you are saying something profound.

You're not.
