Quote# 26945

[In an article about the 'debate' that was supposed to prove God exists]

"Evolution is unscientific. In reality, it is a blind faith that's preached with religious zeal as the gospel truth. I'm embarrassed to admit that I was once a naïve believer in the theory,” said the former television star in a statement. “Atheism has become very popular in universities – where it's taught that we evolved from animals and that there are no moral absolutes. So we shouldn't be surprised when there are school shootings.”

Explain that most, or all, terrorists of today are religious. And as a side note: Cho was a Christian.

Shut up and eat your bananas, asshole.

How many recent terrorists were atheists? Name one.

Evolution exists independently of morality. I can think of no accredited university teaching evolution and morality together.
That's nonsense.
Morality depends neither on evolution nor on gods.
Atheists can be (and most are) very moral people, just as supposedly devoutly religious people can be very amoral individuals.
Your biases are showing.

Yes, atheists are notorious for their involvement in shootings.

Ahh, Kirk, stop trying to extend your pathetic '80's career. You should be more embarassed to admit that you now fall in with creation and hang around with that idiot Ray Comfort.

Only religious fanatics and the mentally ill shoot up schools and blow up innocent people.

Atheists have better things to do with their time, like enjoying this life because they know that this is the only one we get.

“Atheism has become very popular in universities – where it's taught that we evolved from animals and that there are no moral absolutes. So we shouldn't be surprised when there are school shootings.”


Spoken like someone who has never matriculated at any university, and has probably never set foot on a college campus.

I have gone to a total of three different universities in the past decade, two of which were secular, state-run institutions. I earned degrees at two of them. Guess what? At each one, every religion, ethnic group, and point of view was represented. At none of them were atheists even close to being a majority.

This type of propaganda may convince the uneducated, sub-literate hicks who listen to your radio program, but those of us who do have an education see right through your lies.

"Atheism has become very popular in universities"

Uh-huh... those the places where the minimum age is 18, where you go after you've passed the maximum age for School?

"So we shouldn't be surprised when there are school shootings."

Wow... so, something people get taught after they no longer go to school makes people who DO go to school shoot people...?

"I was once..."

The three little words that always prefix a fundie lie.

Gee, nothing can convince me that creationism is true science like a bad eighties child actor!PS Personally I'd be embarrassed to admit I used to be Kirk Cameron before zombies ate my brain. What an ultra-maroon.

The worst fundies never hesitate to stoop to shameless exploitation of national tragedies to further their own ends. Pathetic.

Are you serious. My course catalouge has religious studies from every major religon as well as Bible studies but I can't find that God damn Athiest course.

Yes, Christians have such consistent morality with their rabid anti-abortion and pro-war, pro-death penalty beliefs.

Is that a record for the number of just plain wrong things in a single paragraph?

Because a "zombie as god" is so much more credible

"Evolution is unscientific."

Really how so? What part of the overwealming evidence to you have counter evidence for? In which peer reviewed journals have you published your evidence?

HE WAS PWNED in that debate. I watched it, and it was pretty awesome. I felt bad for the athiest reps, though, because when the fundies had their turn they spewed out crap and lies that couldn't be nipped in the bud right away; the atheists were wincing and eyerolling at the rampant stupidity. I can't believe how confident they were that they could prove absolutely, with science, the existence of a supernatural (i.e. outside the bounds of science) being.

One of my favorite bits went something like this: "Well if it's perfectly logical for God to be eternal, why can't the universe be eternal?" And guess what? No response! They couldn't come up with an answer to that one. Because they got PWNED.

I'm sure the anti-religious epithets I list here won't effect him, so I'm going to take an alternate route...

ATTENTION MR. CAMERON: "GROWING PAINS" SUCKED.

Kirk was never an atheist.He was probably were a confused agnostic. And from his arguments that I have seen, he knows about as much about the evolutionary process as a monkey knows about rocket ships. BTW, does anyone else think that Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron are butt buddies?

"So we shouldn't be surprised when there are school shootings."

Yeah, because when everyone believed in the magic sky daddy who clicked his fingers to bring about creation people were soooo much nicer to one another, weren't they? Fucking idiot.

"No moral absolutes" is a matter of respect for other viewpoints than your own. It's a basic philosophical concept. Forcing your own perspective upon all others does not make them absolute.

Sorry.

Later on the same article:

According to a Zukerman study, in Sweden as many as 85 percent of the population are non-believers;

Ah, such a warming pride.
