Quote# 11562

[Someone remarks that they have been pondering an atheist's strong arguments against the existence of God, such as whether it is anymore rational to believe in an unfalsifiable God than an unfalsifiable invisible cat in a chair.]

You might want to stop hanging around with those people until you are stronger in your faith.

['This is just the politics of an ostrich. Hiding one's head in the sand and pretend that reality does not exist is a dangerous position!']

Actually, ostriches hide their heads in the sand for safety. It makes sense to me!

\"Stronger in your faith\" = \"able to ignore evidence and logic\"

flopfoot apparently does not understand the ostrich metaphor. Pretending that reality does not exist is a good way to keep your faith safe.

Ostriches don't really even do that, do they?

Not that it matters as far as the metaphor goes, of course.

No, they don't.

That people this stupid exist today... Eek.

mad dog

even if they did, such 'hiding' is laughably ineffective

Works well on freeways too! Very safe!

Hiding your head in the sand (metaphorically or otherwise) \"for safey\" makes sense to this person? Does he also maintain that if you cover your head with a blanket, the monsters under your bed can't find you? How old is this person, 4?!?

D.D.G. That would also explain why they're wearing their ass as a hat -- it's a 2 in 1, safety feature / reality shield!

Julian, I think their ass has gone beyond hat and is now in the realm of ski mask.

\"You might want to stop hanging around with those people until you are stronger in your faith.\"

When fed the above sentence, my Fundie to English translator displays:
\"Don't talk to anybody who doesn't share our delusions, if you are not completely and irretrievably deluded.\"


\"Actually, ostriches hide their heads in the sand for safety. It makes sense to me!\"

Hahaha! No, they don't, and if that makes sense to you, you're dumber than dirt.

Thanks, you go ahead and stick your head in the sand - it will make it that much easier to kick your ass.

This is what Catholics sound like today? Father Mark, S.J., would weep.

CousinTed presents: Steppenwolf

We'll call you when you're six years old
And drag you to the factory
To train your brain for eighteen years
With promise of security
But then you're free
And forty years you waste to chase the dollar sign
So you may die in Florida
At the pleasant age of sixty nine

The water's getting hard to drink
We've mangled up the country side
The air will choke you when you breathe
We're all committing suicide
But it's alright
It's progress folks keep pushin' till your body rots
Will strip the earth of all it's green
And then divide her into parking lots

But there's nothing you and I can do
You and I are only two
What's right and wrong is hard to say
Forget about it for today
We'll stick our heads into the sand
Just pretend that all is grand
Then hope that everything turns out ok

You're free to speak your mind my friend
As long as you agree with me
Don't criticize the father land
Or those who shape your destiny
'Cause if you do
You'll lose your job your mind and all the friends you knew
We'll send out all our boys in blue
They'll find a way to silence you

But there's nothing you and I can do
You and I are only two
What's right and wrong is hard to say
Forget about it for today
We'll stick our heads into the sand
Just pretend that all is grand
Then hope that everything turns out ok

please, don't anyone tell me how old he is. In this case, I'm putting MY head in the sand because I just want to live with the belief that he really is 4 years old.

Well at least there is hope here. Look at the guy that actually questions his beliefs. Shows a brain actually in work there to go out and read the other options and consider them carefully....there is hope yet!
