Quote# 46207

Start to recognize the elements that interfere with your faith, or contradict it, and avoid them. Read the Bible and strengthen your faith. Don't pay attention to what those who are lost say about Christ or about how the world began or what will happen when you die. They know nothing. Christ says that He is the TRUTH. You can trust that His Word is true!
Take a look at your own body, for starters. It's obviously sculpted, like Michelangelo's statue of David. Who sculpted it? It's quite obvious that it didn't get that way by accident.
People can look at this computer and believe that it is intelligently designed (even though they never saw the person who designed it), but then at the same time look at the human body, which is millions of times more complex than a computer, and say that it came about by accident? That's not even logical, and I thought atheists worshipped at the altar of logic.

I'm thinking of making the Internet more efficient by replacing fundies like this with bots. All I'd have to do would be to make a program that compiled various strings (Creationist stock arguments) randomly into a forum post. These strings would come from a text file, and the program would change them slightly when posting them so that the program created the illusion that the posts were made by different beings capable of independent thought.

Downside is, it'd give the fundies more time off to reproduce.

Beryllium and antimony have been intefering with my faith in God for some time now...
I think you'll find that Michaelangelo sculpted David. And Moses and the Pietà, too. He thought of himself as a sculptor long before he did the Creation of Adam and the rest of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

In other words: read the bibble. That's it. Don't think about what you read. Dpn't read anything else. Don't listen to anyone except for your pastor.
Just think how much empty space these people have in their heads. There must be a use for it.

"Start to recognize the elements that interfere with your faith, or contradict it, and avoid them."

Translation: find a nice big bucket of sand and stick your head in it. If you can't find a bucket of sand, use your ass.

"Read the Bible and strengthen your faith."

Translation: reinforce your weekly brainwashing session at church with smaller doses at home.

"Don't pay attention to what those who are lost say about Christ or about how the world began or what will happen when you die."

Translation: ignore those who are more knowledgeable about the world and how it works in favor of Bronze Age best guesses based on nothing but wild guesses, speculation and "faith" that they were correct.

"They know nothing."

Translation: project your faults onto those who wish to point out the absurdities in your beliefs.

"Christ says that He is the TRUTH. You can trust that His Word is true!"

Translation: the Bible says it, I believe it, that settles it. No need to think for yourself.

"Take a look at your own body, for starters. It's obviously sculpted, like Michelangelo's statue of David."

Translation: you were obviously sculpted, just as Michelangelo sculpted David. A little on the flabby side? Don't worry, Michelangelo was known to sculpt in Play Dough from time to time.

"Who sculpted it? It's quite obvious that it didn't get that way by accident."

Translation: the human body is a wonderfully complex work which obviously had to have an omnipotent designer to create it. Please ignore all of the obvious faults, defects and plain stupid "design" you find. Focus on the positive, people!

"People can look at this computer and believe that it is intelligently designed (even though they never saw the person who designed it), but then at the same time look at the human body, which is millions of times more complex than a computer, and say that it came about by accident?"

Translation: when in doubt, compare any biological organism--preferably the human body as it's so perfectly designed--to any non-biological and obviously designed and constructed system. This will surely befuddle anyone attempting to say the human body didn't need a designer.

"That's not even logical, and I thought atheists worshipped at the altar of logic."

Translation: claim your opponent is illogical. Don't know logic from logarithms? No problem! Fake it! They wont be any the wiser.

This is so mind-bogglingly stupid that I can't even think straight enough to come up with a response.

I'd love to find out that the original question was about something like dog care or care maintenance. I'd click the link, but it would ruin it for me.

Can I bring up some design issues with the creator? S/he was obviously incompetent.

My body is not sculpted... Nor does it look like Michelangelo's "david".
But you are right about one thing, It didnt get that way by accident... It got that way by a combination of hard work, age, and beer.

Nobody says that the human body came about by accident. Please stop reciting this absurdity.

Don't read anything but the babble. You might learn something.

"Start to recognize the elements that interfere with your faith, or contradict it, and avoid them."

Things like reality, logic and good sense.


"Read the Bible and strengthen your faith."

Many of us came to atheism through reading ther Bible.


"Don't pay attention to what those who are lost say about Christ or about how the world began or what will happen when you die. They know nothing."

Except what the evidence is and how to form reasonable conclusions.


"Christ says that He is the TRUTH. You can trust that His Word is true!"

No, actually the Bible says that. You can't prove that Jesus said any of the things attributed to him.


"Take a look at your own body, for starters."

Woo, what a stud!


"It's obviously sculpted, like Michelangelo's statue of David."

You betcha.


"Who sculpted it?"

Such as it is, I will take credit, or blame, for that artwork.


"It's quite obvious that it didn't get that way by accident."

Oh?


"People can look at this computer and believe that it is intelligently designed (even though they never saw the person who designed it),"

Though there are credible records of who designed nearly every speck of it, you're right, off the top of my head, I can't name each of the many people who contributed to the designs used in my computer.


"but then at the same time look at the human body, which is millions of times more complex than a computer, and say that it came about by accident?"

Genetic mutations are random, but natural selection is not random at all.


"That's not even logical,"

Of course not, not the way you're presenting it, but then again, you're presenting it bassakwards.


"and I thought atheists worshipped at the altar of logic."

Well, you're wrong. Atheists generally USE logic, but we don't worship anything.

"but then at the same time look at the human body, which is millions of times more complex than a computer, and say that it came about by accident?"

Excuse me while I find the jar with my inflammed appendix in it, so I can throw it at your head.

There are so many things wrong with this that I dont have enough space on the net to point them out...talk about a bullying and willfully ignorant wacko!

Christ says that He is the TRUTH. You can trust that His Word is true!

Wow. If it is said, it must be true.

Hey, I have a bridge you might want to buy. I can 100% assure you it is LEGIT. You can trust that my word is true.

Because you can never lose an argument you aren't paying attention to.

Idiot.

So you're saying that once and a while God likes to sculpt siamese twins just to be an ass?

Whoa, stop huffing paint.

I'd like a few words with the designer then.

Old Viking.

My body? Sculpted? Aw, you're just saying that so you can have your way with me.

8/30/2008 8:54:35 PM



Lay off the paint. Start with something weaker then work your way up.

8/30/2008 10:27:20 PM



I wish whomever sculpted my body used a little less marble. :(

Fail at logic. You are forbidden to come to the altar.

So, whoever sculpted me gave me an appendix and a tailbone for no discernible purpose. Man, that fails so hard.
