Quote# 36882

The reason atheists and skeptics get so upset when I say it’s good to cut down trees is that this world is all they have. If it gets completely wrecked, it’s all over for them. That’s what they believe . . . that life then ends. That’s unless Mother Nature or Father Evolution (whoever they believe made everything) makes some more trees, etc. Of course if it has to start all over again, they have to wait for around 4.5 billion years. That’s what they believe, and I guess that’s a little too long for them to wait. So they get antsy when Christians are a little flippant about creation. But we can’t help it. We don’t value creation as though our life depends on it. That’s because we know and trust Him who made all things, and if humanity wrecks this earth, we have His immutable promise that He is going to make all things new.

Father Evolution?


Also, please tell me how NOT believing that GODDIDIT makes me the crazy one?

Wrong. It's Mother Hydra and Father Dagon.

So, according to Fundie Logic, God made this planet so...humans could fuck it up and he could start over? Alright, if you built, say, a guest house, and your guest burned the furniture, flung shit everywhere, and generally fucked it up so terribly that you'd have to rebuild it from the bottom up, what would YOUR reaction be? "Oh, seems they made a little mess. Ha ha ha." or would you be pissed?

If you believe God created everything, you sure aren't winning any points by breaking His stuff, jackass.

Yeah! After all, we know that the rapture is coming before all of the disciples are dead before 1000AD once Israel is refounded 1996 2000 2001 real soon now, so who needs a planet?

3/29/2008 5:14:43 AM


Oh, also: If you morons are so concerned about the Rapture, what if Jesus gets here, and he says "We're not going *ANYWHERE* until you clean up this mess?"

3/29/2008 5:15:33 AM


Your life DOES rely on trees.

This kind of approach is going to backfire on him badly. Even very religious types believe you have to look after the earth because 'He' made it.

Ignorance is so comforting, Ray.

3/29/2008 5:40:18 AM


Don't worry guys, we can fuck everything up and God will clean up our mess for us!

And they say atheists are atheists because they don't want to be accountable.

3/29/2008 5:43:45 AM


At his age, Comfort still believes that someone older will come around and clean up his mess. Mentally, I'd say he's about five years old.

But Ray don't you want to take care of the bananas?

Ray Cumfart, so much ignorance in one person. If only he'd keep it to himself.....

3/29/2008 6:05:08 AM


'I don't care about ruining it for everybody, because daddy still likes me!'

And now we know why Manwë looks down upon humanity with contempt. Sometimes, I too wonder what Ilúvatar was thinking.

"We don’t value creation as though our life depends on it."

Then you have no right to it. Get the FUCK off my planet.

3/29/2008 6:07:36 AM

Ok, when the rising of temperatures provokes draughts, floods and many other disasters which make this planet inhabitable, ask God to find another one. Good deal, isn't it?(after all, I wonder if he gave us the planet to wreck it)

3/29/2008 6:27:08 AM


I'd like to cover you in strips of bacon and leave you tied to a tree, somewhere in a fairly remote part of Canada.

Let's see if your god will protect you from the bears.

Thinking Allowed

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't god ask Adam to tend to the Garden Of Eden?

3/29/2008 7:27:19 AM


Eh, no dice.

3/29/2008 7:43:44 AM


Or we could practice conservation and not bother God.

Not incur his wrath.

*sigh* You stupid idiot.

The reason people like Ray Comfort get so upset when I say it’s good to cut off fundies' fingers is that this is all they have to spread their bullshit online. If they get completely mutilated, it’s all over for them. That’s what they believe . . . that indoctrination then ends. That’s unless Yahweh or Allah (whoever they believe made everything) miraculously restores their hands. Of course that will never happen, they have to wait for around 4.5 years for restorative surgery. That’s what they believe, and I guess that’s a little too long for them to wait. So they get antsy when reasonable people are a little flippant about the ol' butcher knife. But we can’t help it. We don’t value bullshit. That’s because we don't trust people like Ray Comfort to make sane decisions, and if fundies wreck this earth, we have no assurance that humans will be able to make all things new.

I used to think Ray Comfort was just a bit stupid.

Now I think he's a genuinely evil bastard who's happy to see the world go to hell as long as he gets his tithe.

Bastard, bastard, bastard.

Sideshow Bob

This makes the Banana comment look sane and sensible, and I can only hope that he recants THIS statement at least as quickly. The Earth is our nest, and it's our duty not to crap all over it.

3/29/2008 9:54:26 AM


Hummers for Jesus!!

We get a bit antsy when creationists do anything because it is the equivalent of running with a lit candle in a fireworks factory. Trees are a resource. It is finite. If you kill all the trees we will lose species of animals that rely on the trees and not to mention the trees themselves. The equivalent would be "I have 20Kg of grain! I am going to eat all of it so I have no seeds to plant and get more grain for next season because I have faith that God will provide me with grain."

If the other life is the only meaningful one, why do you insist, on the other hand, in preserving here and now, and apply a concrete set of norms?. Be consequent.
