The president of American Atheists answers loaded questions and parries with idiotic believers. It reminds me a lot of conversations I've had with theists. Pretty funny:
We get candles, but not votive candles ;-)
I'm not sure I'd answer these theists the same way but I'd call "We wish you well with your candles and batt'ries" a mocking statement! And anyway, why would Jesus care about flooding? He would tell believers to walk on the water, or else they're not true believers!
