Quote# 45201

They don’t exist in foxholes. To the contrary, it is not someone who doesn’t practice any religion, but it’s a stupid fool who refuses to recognize the existance of the spiritual including a diety. They only believe in what they can see through science and disrgard any philisophical, theological or prophetical evidence of a supreme being. The irony is that it takes more faith to be an atheist than to believe in a diety because the atheist must always explain things not commonly understood like the origin of the universe (even the proposed Big Bang theory eventually points to a supreme being), scientific laws, prophecy and how only females in all species can reproduce their own kind, etc. Because atheists deny the existance of a diety due to a lack of scientific evidence, they must also deny things that are independent of scientific evidence like mathematics, psychology, emotions, miracles, dreams, demonic possession, the existance of good and evil, etc. Since an atheist claims to not belive in anything that cant be scientifically proven, especially God, the word “atheist” itself is a farce because they DO have a belief system; a belief that must assume everything in this universe is a coincidence and there are no abolutes.

Some atheists may either be aggressively active (intollerant of any belief and attacking persons of faith) or passive (supporting others who have faith), depending on the person. Michael Nudow of California was an example in the news a few years ago in the media by his strong activism of removing “In God We Trust” from our money and no private moment of silence or prayer in schools.

Atheists usually support their arguments with questions like “Where is the scientific evidence of a supreme being?” or “How can a God exist with all the horror occuring in the world?” or “how could a loving God send unbelievers to hell?” These questions are asked by atheists due to their lack of understanding of who God is and the root cause of the world’s problems (sin that was not the will of God but the free will of man). An atheist needs to understand that: 1. You cannot prove the spiritual with science. You cant scientifically prove people have been possessed by demons, but it has happened. You cant prove angels or miracles exist, but they do. You cant scientifically prove dreams exists but we know they do. You also cant prove that good and evil exists but we know it does. So, there are numerous things that are evident of a creator but don’t necessarily prove it. 2. The world’s troubles are a result of sin that entered the world, not by the Jedeo-Christian God, but by man’s free will given by God. Man chose to rebel against God and go his own way at the dawn of human civilization that caused the world to plummet into darkness and strife. 3. God does NOT send people to hell—people send themselves by rejecting the attonement of God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, for their sins that separate them from God’s holiness. God did not create hell for people, but only for Satan and his angels following a war in heaven against God. In God’s holiness, he cannot allow sin in his perfect heaven, and there is no other place to send the sinners at judgement day but hell itself.

It’s actually very difficult to be an atheist because they are always having to explain the most difficult of things. The Bible refers to the atheist when it says, “The fool has said in his heart that there is no God.” Atheists are also without excuse because the Bible says, “God’s invisible qualities have been clearly revealed to everyone, so that no man is without excuse.” To put it simply, there is no excuse for being an atheist and not accepting the existance of a creator. At judgement day all atheists will become believers.

To be an atheist means you must consider all belief systems as futile and irrationally deny the existance of anything unseen. After all, there is no scientific proof according to them. How stupid, because much of the world and the universe we live in is unseen.

After all this bullshit you just spewed, this much is clear: You have no earthly idea what an atheist is and your knowledge of science and the scientific method are grossly inadequate.

You are a moron.

More typical fundie procedure:

When their precious Buybull fails, fall back on empty threats -- "Waaaaahhhhhh, if you don't worship my petty little god, you'll soon be sooooooorry!! Waaaaaaahhh!!"

Friggin' idiots.

"a stupid fool who refuses to recognize the existance of the spiritual including a diety."

A stupid fool who claims thee is a giant man with a long white beard who lives on clouds.

"They only believe in what they can see through science and disrgard any philisophical, theological or prophetical evidence of a supreme being."

They disregard observable reality and only believe what is in their fairy tale.

"The irony is that it takes more faith to be an atheist than to believe in a diety because the atheist must always explain things not commonly understood like the origin of the universe"

The irony is that fundies explain everything with goddiddit goddiddit goddiddit then say atheism requires more faith than my goddiddit fairy tale.


"Atheists usually support their arguments with questions like “Where is the scientific evidence of a supreme being?”"

Fundies respond to requests for evidence with incohereent gibberish, threats of burning in hell, or GODDIDDIT GODDIDDIT GODDIDDIT GODDIDDIT.

"An atheist needs to understand that You cannot prove the spiritual with science. You cant scientifically prove people have been possessed by demons, but it has happened."

The fundie needs to understnd that you cannot prove the world was created by spaghetti and meatballs but it was.

"Since an atheist claims to not belive in anything that cant be scientifically proven, especially God, the word “atheist” itself is a farce because they DO have a belief system;"

You should have looked up the definition of atheist before you started your nonsense spewing.

"It’s actually very difficult to be an atheist because they are always having to explain the most difficult of things."

While it's easy to be a fundie because all you have to do is wave your arms wildly about and yell GODDIDDIT GODDIDDIT GODDIDDIT GODDIDDIT!!!!!!!

"Atheists are also without excuse because the Bible says, “God’s invisible qualities have been clearly revealed to everyone, so that no man is without excuse.”"

Strangely, the fundies never seem to be able to provide evidence for these clearly revealed invisible qualities.

"At judgement day all atheists will become believers."

Yes, right after the rapture. Which will happen any day now.

"To be an atheist means you must consider all belief systems as futile and irrationally deny the existance of anything unseen. After all, there is no scientific proof according to them. How stupid, because much of the world and the universe we live in is unseen."

Like the galaxies millions of light years away that can only be seen using telescopes designed with atheist principles? And the atoms that can only be seen using microscopes designed using atheistic principles? And the EM radiation that can only be seen using instruments designed with atheistic principles? Yes, they are very stupid to deny the evidence of things unseen.

Too long, did not give a shit.

"because much of the world and the universe we live in is unseen."

I've heard this argument.

So, you're telling me God exists in part of the universe we can't see?

Or feel?

Of sense at all?

And He only affects that part?

Because there's NO EVIDENCE for him. Not in this reality.

So if He only exists in some other area, and only affects that area, he's clearly not your God, or any other Earthly God.

And if He doesn't affect you, He probably doesn't even give a shit.

Some God you worship - the God of Gaps and Technicalities and Whoops-That-Contradicts-The-Nature-Of-Our-God-Oh-Well.

"how only females in all species can reproduce their own kind,"

FAIL:

1) Not all species have sexes. Everything below nematodes on the tree of life is either hermaphroditic or lacks sexual structures.

2) In sexual species eggs require sperm to develop into a fetus

3) If he meant that only females carry babies, it's because females produce the egg, which is the DEFINITION of female. One notable exception is seahorses.

/FAIL

You know, some atheists are spiritual people. Some people call them 'Buddhists'.

I'll take those bonus points, then. Where and how do I use them?

Damm, they have found Urban Dictionary. Are you nowhere save from preaching?

And @Anevilmeme: I have read it to it's bitter end. And now my brain hurts!

The irony is that it takes more faith to be an atheist than to believe in a diety because the atheist must always explain things not commonly understood like the origin of the universe (even the proposed Big Bang theory eventually points to a supreme being), scientific laws, prophecy and how only females in all species can reproduce their own kind, etc.

Even if we knew for certain that these things had a supernatural origin, that still doesn't prove the existence of God. It doesn't show that there was one god, that the god or gods still exist, that they have any other powers or that they have any further interest in humanity. It's a useless argument.

BTW, you have it backwards. It's not "only females can reproduce their own kind"; it's "only those that reproduce their own kind are called females". And their are plenty of species where an individual has male and female parts and produces both eggs and sperm - flowering plants, for example.

Allegory for Jesus

"recognize the existance of the spiritual including a diety."

Show me the difference between mental and spiritual now or STFU, mofo.

"disrgard any philisophical, theological or prophetical evidence of a supreme being."

i.e. baseless speculation.

"Because atheists deny the existance of a diety due to a lack of scientific evidence, they must also deny things that are independent of scientific evidence like mathematics, psychology, emotions, miracles, dreams, demonic possession, the existance of good and evil"

Fail. Psychology is a science, emotions can be explained neurologically, miracles are just glorified coincidences, dreams can be explained neurologically, demonic possession doesn't exist, and good and evil do not exist and are human philosophical constructs.

"sin that was not the will of God but the free will of man"

...and which God, being omniscient, knew would happen, and, being omnipotent, would have been able to prevent us from doing. However, if he wishes to forfeit these to allow for "free will", an interesting question is why we are biologically predisposed towards activity that are deemed "sinful"? We have the free will of a marble on a clear steep hill to decide whether to roll or stay still.

"You cant scientifically prove people have been possessed by demons, but it has happened. You cant prove angels or miracles exist, but they do"

Replace the word "demons" with "body thetans" and "angels" with "leprechauns" and explain to us why you are not ridiculous.

"people send themselves by rejecting the attonement of God’s Son"

Does that mean that if I leave you sitting in a vat of acid until you sing "I'm a little teacup" as a death metal ballad and you die, and that I placed you there and kept you in there for your stubbornness, that you committed suicide by not singing it? Glad that you are not a judge.

"In God’s holiness, he cannot allow sin in his perfect heaven"

You would think that an all powerful, all loving deity could deal with a few instances of adultery, Sabbath-working, and wife-coveting in his presence. Petty little thing, your God.

"God’s invisible qualities have been clearly revealed to everyone, so that no man is without excuse"

No, they haven't. No more than the FSM, Odin, or the Tao's qualities have been revealed to everyone.s

"and irrationally deny the existance of anything unseen"

...unheard, unsmelt, intangible, immeasurable, and essentially unknown. That sure is an irrational denial. Tell me why it is rational to believe in invisible, intangible super-aliens from the 17th dimension who come to Earth every Thanksgiving for the express purpose of raping poodles? I'd love to hear it.

Someone tell these idiots on Urban Dictionary that "dictionary" and "soap box for retarded essays" are two different things.

When I look up a term, it's not to learn your fucking view on the fucking term. Cut it the fuck out.

No, it's quite simple to be an atheist.. in fact, it is the default position. Since there is no proof of the existence of any deities, yours included the default position is to NOT believe in a deity. Just like with the existence of the invisible pink unicorn, the dragon that lives in my garage and the celestial teapot. There is no proof for the existence of any of these things, so the default position is to not believe in them.

I don't need "god dit it" as an explination of the origin of our universe.

It’s actually very difficult to be an atheist because they are always having to explain the most difficult of things.
Most of them are pretty good at it. Not everyone explains things by saying their deity of choice did it.

You are wrong about atheism.
I'm so sick of this. Christianity is not the alternative option to atheism. Theism is. Atheism/theism, you see how that works? Even if you come up with evidence that there is some kind of God or Gods, that's not the same as coming up with evidence for Christianity. It doesn't go, there is a God therefore Christians are right. Hindus could be right or the ancient Egyptians or (more likely) no religion is true.
