Quote# 53306

My dear unbelieving friends, can you not just be realistic? There is no such thing as an atheist. An "atheist" is merely just an intelectually dishonest person."For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against the ungodliness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness" Romans 1:18. Do you really wake up in the morning, put your feet on the floor, look at the rising sun, and say "what a beautiful day time + random chance have given me today"? Really now, be honest.Even Voltaire said before he died, "God has forsaken me". Just like Voltaire, you know the truth. In your heart of hearts you can not deny reality. You suppress the truth in unrighteousness not because it is rational or logical to do so, but because you refuse to submit to the moral authority of your creator. Therfore, it is necessary for you to deny His existence with whatever "straw man" argument you can manage to fabricate. Nonetheless tomorrow morning He wil very likely give you another sunrise and an opportunity to rethink your position. His grace to you is indeed amazing. Will you repent and believe? Choose this day for tomorrow is not guaranteed. God be with you.

If god visited his wrath upon me for my atheism, I didn't notice.

Also: "intelectually dishonest"? You have a lot of nerve.

There are months when not a day goes by when I don't find some text that claims "There are no atheists!".. Is it really so hard to understand that we exist?

I have a hard time believing that the people who believe in the Rapture exist though. I know we have a lot of quotes here from Rapture Ready and all that, but sometimes I just think that we've all been had. I think they're the world's biggest Poe.
Atheists exist though.

"His grace to you is indeed amazing."

Fuck me, what about His grace to starving infants? Holocaust victims? Amputees?

Fuck no.

I wake up in the morning, leap out of my loft, beat the shit out of my alarm clock, change my underwear, eat a protein bar, and write the Art paper I'm currently putting off.

"In your heart of hearts you can not deny reality."

My heart is a muscle. My mind, however, does not find any god anywhere in reality.

"you refuse to submit to the moral authority of your creator."

I haven't got a supernatural creator. The one you've imagined is such a douche I couldn't worship him even if he did exist.

"tomorrow morning He wil very likely give you another sunrise and an opportunity to rethink your position. His grace to you is indeed amazing."

Or perhaps the sun will rise as long as the Earth's orbit is uninterrupted, regardless of the shit-giving of a single human such as myself.

"Will you repent and believe?"



"Choose this day for tomorrow is not guaranteed."

If there was anything that could stop the sun from rising tomorrow, I think NASA would have told us by now.

We know it isn't God that makes the Sun rise...

No wrath yet... OHWAIT:

1. That's because you know what I think, feel and believe better than I do, so I must not REALLY be an atheist.
2. The wrath is soooo totally coming. Someday. You swear.

*sigh*

"it is necessary for you to deny His existence with whatever "straw man" argument you can manage to fabricate."

Straw man? This from the person who claims there is no such thing as an atheist. What an idiot.

Intellectual dishonesty is denying the mountains of evidence for evolution. It's refusing to admit the Bible is full of errors and contradictions. It's making statements like "atheists don't exist because deep down they really believe in god".
I don't believe in god. Stop saying you know what I think. you don't know shit.

My dear unbelieving friends, can you not just be realistic?

Um...more realistic than you? Is that possible /sarcasm

There is no such thing as an atheist.

Been there. Heard that.

An "atheist" is merely just an intelectually dishonest person

Right. We're not the ones who reject reason and rationality.

Do you really wake up in the morning, put your feet on the floor, look at the rising sun, and say "what a beautiful day time + random chance have given me today"?

No. I work nights.

Just like Voltaire, you know the truth. In your heart of hearts you can not deny reality

You're right about that. We do know the truth and cannot deny reality. That's why we're atheists, or at the least, not fundy or conservative.

You suppress the truth in unrighteousness not because it is rational or logical to do so, but because you refuse to submit to the moral authority of your creator.

OK, I'm going to need solid proof that christians act more moral than atheists. I'm also going to need solid proof that christian beliefs are more moral than an atheists.

[i]Therfore, it is necessary for you to deny His existence with whatever "straw man" argument you can manage to fabricate[i]

I haven't been an atheist very long, but I've seen christians pull stuff out of their ass that they would have had to dig way up in there to pull out.

Nonetheless tomorrow morning He wil very likely give you another sunrise and an opportunity to rethink your position

And my position will not change. God isn't real.

His grace to you is indeed amazing

He has yet to show it. From what "god" has shown me, he doesn't give a shit about those who spend their every waking hour serving him. So he's not worthy of worhip. Even if he is real, which he has yet to show.

Will you repent and believe?

Only if my next move is to carve my brain out with a chainsaw.

Choose this day for tomorrow is not guaranteed

And I've made my choice. You're god is not real, nor is he worthy of worship or devotion.

God be with you

LOL.

When I get up in the morning, I'm lucky if I can think "HUNGRY. EAT." My vast intellect requires time and nutrition to warm up for the day.

gorm_sionnach

Wha? Huh? Juh?

Simply because you say something, doesn't make it true, idiot. "Hi, I'm an atheist", "Huh, you're not real", "Uh, I'm standing right here, talking to you, clearly I exist", "Not listening, la la la la, Jesus is lord"

Could refute this, but been there, done that...

There is no such thing as an atheist.
O, yes there is !!!

His grace to you is indeed amazing
Tell that to the underaged little girls who where raped by men suffering from AIDS. Men who contracted this disease because the church refuses to have them educated in the use of condoms, and, as prayer proves to be totally ineffective in curing AIDS, fall back to an even more crude belief system, namely that fucking a virgin will cure you.

Will you repent and believe?
No, sod off !

"An "atheist" is merely just an intelectually dishonest person."

And then you quote from a book so fucking delusional it should have its own wing in Bellevue. People like you don't get to use the phrase "intellectually dishonest".

"Do you really wake up in the morning, put your feet on the floor, look at the rising sun, and say "what a beautiful day time + random chance have given me today"?"

Of course not. First of all, it's not accurate. Second of all, it would take too long. If I were so inclined I would probably say something along the lines of "what a beautiful day that inherent properties of space-time and an abundance of elements, combined with inevitable reactions, has yielded precisely in the manner in which basic scientific principles say they should." But, like I said, that would take too long and I'm not entirely inclined to say such a thing.

"Even Voltaire said before he died, "God has forsaken me""

Do you even know who Voltaire was? Do you know what he was most famous for? Sarcastic, satirical wit.

Not that it matters as you're using an appeal to authority fallacy which means you've already lost your argument.

"In your heart of hearts you can not deny reality."

I don't see why I couldn't do it at least as well as you do.

"You suppress the truth in unrighteousness not because it is rational or logical to do so, but because you refuse to submit to the moral authority of your creator. Therfore, it is necessary for you to deny His existence with whatever "straw man" argument you can manage to fabricate."

How's this for an argument: show me your evidence that your "creator" exists and I'll consider it. If you can't provide such evidence, I humbly suggest you shut the fuck up.

"Nonetheless tomorrow morning He wil very likely give you another sunrise and an opportunity to rethink your position. His grace to you is indeed amazing. Will you repent and believe? Choose this day for tomorrow is not guaranteed. God be with you."

Kiss my ass you arrogant prick. Dog be with you.

OUR strawman arguments? We aren't the ones arguing. YOU'RE making the unprovable claim, so burden of proof is on you.

Well, tomorrow *isn't* guaranteed... that's why I live my life, and honor my gods, and make sure to ENJOY MY LIFE AS MUCH AS I CAN. (Why would they give me life, only to have me waste it groveling at their feet?) If I live a good life, help others in need, honor my gods, and occasionally indulge in expensive/rare treats, what more is there?

Sunrise = beautiful, so there must be a creator of the universe. Ok sure, that barely makes sense but to a moron I guess that counts as logic.

Sunrise = beautiful, so the Bible is true and all the other religions(including competing sects of Christianity) are false and their believers will go to hell, well that's dumb even for a moron.

12/1/2008 2:25:36 AM

GreenEyedLilo

@ WMDKitty: Yeah. Exactly that.

Why do these people not understand that when they say you should "choose this day...", a person can "choose" not to become Christian?
