Quote# 34451

[in response to "Why not set it so He only has to kill, say, a badger?" in a discussion on salvation and Jesus' crucifixion]

You want a badger to be your saviour? Now you're starting to think like an atheist. They worship nature --- not us.

You're confusing Animism with Atheism again, Vet.

2/3/2008 6:15:06 AM


Christians would have a lot less confusion debating atheists if they actually knew what atheists believed.

LOL...Badger Jesus died for your sins.

Seriously though, sine when do atheists "worship nature"?

I wonder how AV1611VET would react to the University of Wisconsin-Madison? Would they be idol worshipers in his view?

2/3/2008 6:59:42 AM


Um...Atheists don't worship anything. Animism and some Pagan religins worship and revere nature.

"They worship nature --- not us."

Wait... So you admit to worshiping yourselves? You're really slipping, VET.

Leave it to AV to pack so much stupidity into three short sentences.

In the immortal words of Bugs Bunny, "It is to laugh".

May the good Mother Nature smite you!

You know, I'm a Christian, but I have to admit that the notion of a badger being our saviour is actually pretty badass.

Oh, and last time I checked, atheists didn't worship nature. You'r thinking of hippies (bad joke alert!). You've got to remember the differences between your enemies, AV.

They worship nature ---not us.
So I should worship you? Wouldn't that piss off your god? In fact didn't you just piss your god off royally by saying that? I mean Moses didn't get to see the promised land for a lot less than that comment.

Anyway, atheists don't worship anything. There's nothing to worship. We take responsibility for our own lives rather than relying on 'good' and 'bad' spirits to direct our lives. But I guess that's a little beyond a Christians ability to understand.

BTW....... GO BADGERS!! this friendly message brought to you by the University of Wisconsin.

For as much as they (say) worship their God, they do spit on his so called creation don't they?

"Ugh nature"
"Ugh monkeys"

2/3/2008 8:11:44 AM


How else would you overcome original sin than by poking badgers with spoons?

2/3/2008 8:16:49 AM


Well, badgers we at least know exist...

2/3/2008 8:39:56 AM


Nah, Badgers are too cute. How about an Aardvark? Or an Anteater? A squirrel would do to. There's way too many of them around. They are utter nuisances.

Badger badger badger badger badger badger badger mushroom mushroom!

We don't worship animals, you, or god for the same reason: we find them not worthy for worship.

Well if he is indeed "God" and indeed almighty... Then he really wouldn't have needed to go through this song and dance of saviours.

Indeed the whole Satan thing should have ended faster than Tyson vs. Tiny Tim. He is all powerful and satan is not... Infact something tells me God is kind of like Rocky. On the ropes before coming out with something from somewhere to defeat his foes... Seriously. With that much power the amount of unnecessary stuff God does is hilarious.

Well, since they already have the snake, and judging from all the other visions a LOT of mushrooms, might as well go for the gold and put badgers in. Badgers badgers badgers badgers badgers badgers badgers badgers.

A snake a snake a snake, ooh, it's a snaaake!

Savior from what? We're talking about God "saving" us from Himself for a curse He put on us Himself for eating a piece of His magic fruit. Why does there have to be a "savior" at all? Why can't He come down onto the top of a mountain like He did for Moses and say "OK, I'm sorry I got so bent out of shape over the fruit thing. I'll let anyone off the hook who asks me politely".

2/3/2008 3:25:26 PM


You're saying atheists worship nature? WRONG.
You're saying they should worship you? DOUBLE WRONG.

2/3/2008 3:29:06 PM


What? Suddenly you're too good for no-hassle-badger-messiah?
