Quote# 16638

Atheism is another denomination of Christianity.

[WTF?? Atheism is another denomination of Christianity?Utter drivel]

How can it be drivel? Another man's opinion can be as valid as the next man.

I am starting to believe the same way of Atheism as another form of religion.

The same way that Satanism can be regarded as another denomination of Christianity. They deny that christ will save them, so just end up in the opposite direction.

Just your perception can be put to the test.

Oh yeah... and that means dictatorship is another form of democracy.

Some people just can't accept that people do not believe anything near what they do.

I pity them.

Okay, so atheism = Islam is out. We're now all closet Christians. Right.

Next month's installment of FSTDT:

Atheists = Hindus.

I can sort of understand an argument that Satanists are Christians - if they believe Jesus exists but oppose him. But what the hell does he think atheists are?

\"Atheism is another denomination of Christianity.\"

How do you tell the difference between the muslim atheists and the christian atheists?

I love doing this,

Your opinion is wrong.

Despite the fact it should be nothing more than what you believe, it is in fact wrong. Just because it is something you think is true, it does not keep it from being false. Athiesm has been around since before we were recording time, how long has your pesky little diety been around? Sorry, think that kinda rules it out, unless athiests were the original christians of course.

This is an example of what happens when a fundamentalist uses his limited perception of the world to try and explain those whose perceptions and ideas are different. And yes, it is really retarded!

Another man's opinion can be as valid as the next man.


True, but this is NOT one of those times. An OPINION is when you like/dislike something, and someone else has a different take on it. You might like the taste of chocolate ice cream and your dog doesn't. Neither is wrong because they are opinions. You have REINVENTED a definition to a word that you don't understand or understand it wrong. You can't say Lake Erie is a potato because it isn't. That's merely a lie or a gross misinterpretation of reality.

Atheism is the ABSENCE of a belief in a god. A religion is the worship of a god. Who the hell would people without a belief in a diety worship?

Hello? McFly?

Following that idioticy, Christianity is a derivate from the animistic religions and so on. WTF award.

I do. It passes every time.

Now put Christianity to the test. How's that work for you?

Lake Erie isn't a potato?? *waaaah* That's my whole worldview gone, right there.

I think the gap in the poster's screen name refers to the gap between his ears.

By the same logic, you're Muslim.

Let's see...

Historically: Atheism existed long before Christianity.
Ontologically: Atheists must deny (or fail to affirm) the existence of God and the divinity of Jesus.
Textually: The Christian Bible is an unnecessary text with no special place in atheism. It's considered to be mistaken on supernatural matters.
Counter-factually: If Christianity had never existed, people would still be atheists.
Denominationally: Atheists have no churches, no dogma, no hierarchy and no necessarily shared beliefs (save the nonexistence of God).
Orthogonally: The details of one are unrelated to the details of the other. They are mutually independent.

\"Atheism is another denomination of Christianity.\"

Much in the same way that bald is a hair color.

[WTF?? Atheism is another denomination of Christianity?Utter drivel]


\"How can it be drivel? Another man's opinion can be as valid as the next man.\"

So, your position is that because someone, somewhere believes something, it is valid and cannot be drivel?

Another man's opinion CAN be as valid as the next man, but it may just as easily be complete bullshit.



\"I am starting to believe the same way of Atheism as another form of religion.\"

Well then, you are starting to become even more stupid. Atheism is not a religion.


\"The same way that Satanism can be regarded as another denomination of Christianity.\"

Belief in Satan does not require a belief in Christ. Without a belief in Christ, one cannot be a Christian.


\"They deny that christ will save them, so just end up in the opposite direction.\"

Oh, c'mon, YOU deny that Christ will save us. You contend that Christ will send us to hell.


\"Just your perception can be put to the test.\"

Huh? There are many thing other than my perception which can be tested.

I suggest that your perception is faulty and that you should have it tested.

No... Atheism isn't Christianity, but Atheism is a belief, just like Theism is a belief. It doesn't make it a religion though. Theists believe that there is proof of a god, and vice versa. One technically cannot actually know, but holds the belief (hopefully) from thinking through what makes the most sense. This can be applied to anything of that nature.

Mr. Spak: How do you tell the difference between the muslim atheists and the christian atheists?
Answer: they disbelieve in different Gods.

Atheism, the ultimate ecumenicalism! We disbelieve all religions equally.

If Atheism is Christianity, then Christianity is Zoroastrism and Satanism and Buddhism and Baha'ism and...
Quite idiotic.

Just for the sake of argument, why does atheism have to be a demonination of CHRISTIANITY? Could it not be a \"denomination\" of, oh, ANY other religion?

Even though it isn't.

Wait, this is attributed wrong. This is by Lorenzo, in trying to defend his usage of the Pratchett quote to support his bizarre \"Atheists are christians\" claim.
