Lady Checkmate's headline: "Greg Bahnsen Debunks Scientism (the religion of atheism)"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGLVSN4JIfE&app=desktop

(to those who do not want to watch the video, here are the main points, taken from the YouTube video's introduction:
"In this clip Dr. Bahnsen makes his opening statement. Here are highlights:
- The atheists live inconsistent lives
- Atheists will presuppose human dignity by attending a friend's funeral then later affirm that human life is no different than an animal
- Atheists are primitive in their thinking
- Atheists do not have a workable worldview (example given, be OK with prostitution but speak out against child sexual abuse)
- Evolutionists have an irrational worldview that life spontaneously erupted
- Atheists are unable to answer the tough questions of philosophy
- Atheists work hard to hide their intellectual poverty from themselves and others

Lady Checkmate:
Psalm 14:1 (KJV)
14 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Fundies like Chess Lady and Greg Bahnsen live IN A WORLD where:

- "Human dignity" means "Fetuses are people, so abortion is murder!" except if a woman who's one of them gets one, on the down low.

- GODDIDIT is a scientifically sound answer to anything.

- Everything scientific that doesn't fit their religious worldview is lumped together under the label "evolution."

- God spontaneously erupted. Or something.

@Malingspam - "God spontaneously erupted. Or something."

No, no, no. Volcanos erupt, God has temper tantrums.

Yeah bitch, when you tell me what an adult, willing sex worker and a sexually abused child have in common, we can talk. Not much since that retarded little "analogy" will still hol no water whatsoever but yeah, I wanna hear you say it, just to laugh at how fucking oblivious you are.

Also, you call others primitive in their ways while yourself worshipping a brutal, bronze age tyrant of a psycho just cause in your dumb, little apeish brain might makes apparent right. Pathetic.

KJV-humper much? If not, better start using a later - thus heretical - version, if you know what's good for you. In Westminster Abbey, central place of worship of the basis of your BuyBull as you know it: even those later versions, the Church of England...:





...Checkmate, Lady.

PROTIP: Reconciling one's faith with now proven scientific fact. It's a thing, y'see. Just ask Conservative Christian Dr. Buzz Aldrin (on the Moon landings):

It is a magnificent testimony to the evolution of humankind


Enjoy your paradox, missy.

Look, lady fuckface, I'm not going to bother refuting everything wrong with this for two reasons: we've done it countless times before and since it doesn't help at all, why waste the oxygen, and secondly because it makes it look like you imbeciles are actually worth debating.

So, in short, fuck off, lady cuntface, and take your holier-than-thou attitude and jackass god (and that talentless lackey Mick the dick) with you.

Also, "scientism"? The "religion" of atheism!? Ok, I think I lost a few braincells trying to grasp that insanity. Good job, Greg.

Cool, let's infect you with a deadly disease and see how well your faith protects you.
Science works, which is more than can be said for your mumbo jumbo.

So, only atheists "dabble" in Scientism? You're aware that scientists created the computer you're using, Matey, and the Internet you're posting on. Guess it's all imaginary, now that Some Dude has debunked it.

What's a consistent life? A life where nothing ever happens, you only go on existing, no goals, no focus, no... anything?

If those are your "points", you have no consistency, no dignity, no workable worldview, you are primitive, irrational, intellectually poor and unable to answer, well, any questions by non-fundie people.

Greg Bahnsen Debunks Scientism (the religion of atheism)


Debunks, my ass! Only one of those points (the one about the origin of life) is even actually an attempt to debunk anything. The rest of them are basically nothing but different ways to say "atheists are bad!" If I came up with a list of ways in which I think Christians are bad (not that I would do that because I don't like to generalize!), and even if they were all true, that wouldn't debunk Christianity, and I wouldn't pretend that it did.

(I believe the term to describe this would be "ad hominem"....)

Actually, scientia est potentia. But you don't know much, Gingham, that's why you're a brainwashed fundie dingbat.

And it's you fundies who are inconsistent, I could list 1000s of points, if I could be bothered. You're not worth the time.

example given, be OK with prostitution but speak out against child sexual abuse


To see this as a contradictory worldview means that this person has a deeply troubling understanding of why child sexual abuse is wrong.

@Swede:

Scientism isn't modern science. It's a (mostly non-existent) philosophy that people like this throw around as an accusation toward...well, everyone else. In reality, it's only a fair charge against an extremely small number of logical positivists who believe that any statement that can't be shown empirically to be true shouldn't be trusted (that number may actually be 0; "scientism" shows up in discussions of the philosophy of science, but never as a position to argue for and always as an extreme to be avoided). Ironically, it's closer to the "YES BUT HOW DO YOU KNOW?" arguments used by Young Earth Creationists than anything else, although obviously Creationists don't actually hold to it.

I sometimes think the worst thing about Lady Checkmate is this unspoken thing where all of us are guilty of every thing she writes about but she herself is every bit as blameless as God. The self-righteousness is almost too much to take. And when she blasts somebody individually, the rage and anger she unleashes on them is so over the top that I suspect she’s overcompensating for something she did earlier in life.

Scientism? What?

11/4/2018 11:10:03 AM

Jocasta McFucken

She learned the. Word “scientism” from Amos or Oboehner, it’s the hallmark of the science denier which both those guys are in spades.

"The atheists live inconsistent lives"
i'll bet if I say 'Christains worship Mary' he'll complain about lumping people together...

"Atheists will presuppose human dignity by attending a friend's funeral then later affirm that human life is no different than an animal"
I attend funerals for the living. I care about the people who grieve for the dead.
I have attended funerals for goldfish, hamsters, dogs... Because people grieve for them.

"Atheists are primitive in their thinking"
As opposed to thumpers who reduce every moral question to black and white...?

"Atheists do not have a workable worldview (example given, be OK with prostitution but speak out against child sexual abuse)"

Atheism is not something that offers a worldview. And I'm okay with consensual sex, as opposed to sex with those who cannot consent. So, still consistent.

"Evolutionists have an irrational worldview that life spontaneously erupted"

Feel free to provide the slightest evidence that this is irrational.. Also, provide any slight reason to think that only atheists support evolutionary theory.

"Atheists are unable to answer the tough questions of philosophy"

No, you just don't like the answers they give.

"Atheists work hard to hide their intellectual poverty from themselves and others"

Citation needed...

"Lady Checkmate:
Psalm 14:1 (KJV) 14 The fool hath said"

I cannot see any point in quoting the Bible at a non-believer. So this must just be quoted to the fellow believers, reinforcing their self-importance.

It just seems like masturbation on LC's part...

@2172337

Well, yeah, just look at her Disqus channels. She doesn't talk to non-believers, or even to believers that don't agree with her.
