Quote# 12209

Athiests are arrogant and condescending, that's why NOBODY wants to be one, except the worst of the worst.

You're SURE there's no God, like your racist buddy Darwin, comrade Stalin, and your good buddy Fidel.

Or that worthless, good-for-nothing, Carl Sagan, or that two-timing ne'er-do-well Dr. James Watson, and of course Arthur C. Clarke and Ernest Hemingway...what did they ever do to amount to anything?

Darwin? Racist?
What about Joshua, huh?
What about God himself with his constant favoring of different people?
What about most religious people since whenever the fuck BC to today AD?

What about the inqusition?
The crusades?
The executions of atheists simply for being it and nothing more?

What about Einstein, was he evil?
What about Lincoln? I'm pretty sure he wasn't a terrible person.
Gene Roddenberry?

Nobody wants to be an athiest. Does that mean we were all forced to be?

Athiests are arrogant...


Right, because we claim that everyone must live by our rules, we claim that everyone must agree with us, we claim that we're being \"persecuted\" if people disagree with us, and we claim that everyone else is horrible and deserves to be tortured. Oh, wait. Christians do that, not atheists.

...and condescending...


Right, because we tell everyone that they're criminals, we tell everyone that they're worthless unless they believe that Jesus gives them value, and we aren't shy about telling everyone that they're scum unless they agree with us. Oh, wait, my bad. That's the Christians again.

...that's why NOBODY wants to be one...


I admit, I don't want to be an atheist. I simply have to be one, given the total lack of evidence for any god. If there was evidence that a loving god existed, I would be quite happy about it. (Note: The Christian god does not fit that description.) I really want there to be a loving god, but I have the rationality to know that things aren't true solely because I wish they were.

...except the worst of the worst.


Like the people who started the Crusades? The ones who performed the \"witch burnings?\" The ones who killed the people of a great many countries? The ones currently forcing their opinions onto everyone? Oh, wait, those are all Christians.

You're SURE there's no God...


No, I am not \"sure there's no god.\" I am sure that the Christian god doesn't exist; the Christian god is all-powerful and all-knowing, and is just but sends people to hell; since he possesses two pairs of mutually contradictory qualities, he cannot exist. However, I wouldn't say \"I am sure no gods exist.\" I'm an ignostic; the question \"Does a god exist?\" is meaningless, because the term \"god\" is undefined. It would be like asking \"Does a bludge exist?\"

...like your racist buddy Darwin, comrade Stalin, and your good buddy Fidel.


Yeah, yeah. Let's just get it over with.

1. Charles Darwin wasn't an atheist. He was a racist, but so was everyone else at the time. Darwin was opposed to slavery. Your god is extremely racist; he orders genocide against other races in the BuyBull.
2. Stalin is not my \"comrade.\" No one likes him, for the most part. He was an atheist, yes, but he also believed the sky was blue. If all atheists are bad because Stalin was an atheist, then surely all blue-sky believers, round-earthers, and wet-waterers are also bad for the same reason.
3. See (2), replacing \"Stalin\" with \"Fidel.\"

Papabear & Co. - Proudly being being the worst of the worst since 1968. No god too large or too small to be disbelieved.


And, for the record, for his time Darwin wasn't a racist, Stalin is not my comrade, and Fidel is not my buddy... and neither are you, UnAmericanYOU.


Being an atheist isn't a choice, it's a social responsibility.

Mr. Turquoise

Well, I'll admit that I'm both arrogant and condescending, but I was like that when I called myself Christian, too.

What's uncanny about his post is that UnAmerican knows the names (and nicknames!?) of all my atheist poker buddies - Mick \"Racist Prick\" Darwin, Billy \"Comrade\" Stalin, and Fidel \"Good Buddy\" Smith (Jack Hitler also pops by once in a while, but he's Catholic).

Atheists aren't evil. it's the people who follow what the bible says that are evil.

@Papabear, you said it right, for his time. But many people fail to place hostorical context on events that happened in the past.

Mr. Turquoise, you have caused me to laugh out loud. Or 'lol', if you will. Thank you.

What about my best friend Pol Pot? :(

6/8/2006 8:18:00 AM

Prager

Well, if you must know, I am sure that God exists.

Darwin was no more racist than most other 19th century intellectuals.

Stalin was just psychotic.

Fidel's crime is that he doesn't knuckle under to US pressure.

Funny, I always thought of myself as one of the best of the best. But then, I am horribly arrogant and condescending.

I second the laughter Mr. Turquoise

NOBODY wants to be one, except the worst of the worst.

...like Dave Barry, and Lance Armstrong, and Bruce Lee, and Angelina Jolie, Terry Pratchett, ...

Tak, have you ever posted at RenewAmerica?

No, I have a feeling they would ban me in 2 minutes. Most conservetard message boards do not tolerate *anyone* who is not in lockstep with their views.

It's not even worth the effort of registering.

Nicely done, Maronan! Beautifully put.

I would just like to reinforce the observation of the irony in this post: a condemnation of atheists as \"arrogant\" and \"condescending\" coming from someone who believes that his imaginary Special Friend will get him into heaven, no matter what he does, and that everyone not of his particular creed will be sent to eternal torture, no matter what they do. Now THAT'S arrogant and condescending!
