[Question: Who does an atheist turn to in their darkest hours?]


God of course. The last recourse of the desperate is and has always been that which they feel | hope will help them of their hour of need. The most renounced of atheist will pray for their salvation to their version of the all mighty when they are in the direst of straits. Sadistically, this could be proven in a purely empirical experiment with most devout of atheists, without a dout

Huh. I've known actual atheists who have actually hurt. I'm wife to one and sister to another. They turn to me, or their friends, or helpful professionals.

No, can't be friends and family or even a professional, has to be gawd.

Does he really mean sadistically, or is it a misspelling of statistically? Difficult to tell given he can spell empirical and atheist but not almighty or doubt. Not that it makes a lot of difference - he's a pillock in either case.

OT - what's a carnotaurus? A meat eating bull?

9/17/2008 3:04:26 PM


"God of course"

Which one?

9/17/2008 3:04:28 PM


Kid, i'm the one i rely on. I'm that strong in my spirit.

Then they're not atheists. Simple as that.

9/17/2008 3:09:16 PM


Never met a "devout" atheist. How can you be devout without belief?

9/17/2008 3:11:26 PM


And you're citing this as evidence that god isn't made up, given the colossal variety of other crazy shit people will make up to comfort themselves under pressure?

Observable Reality

If I'm ever trapped under a pile of rubble, I'll be shouting for a rescue worker, not God. I'd go with the one that might actually show up.

9/17/2008 3:23:52 PM


Nope, you are wrong, "Kevisaurus is a Carnotaurus today", never have I done that and I have nee through some pretty crappy times.

"... Sadistically, this could be proven in a purely empirical experiment with most devout of atheists, without a dout"

I have no "dout" that it would indeed be sadistic to experiment on those who don't share your delusion. Or isn't that what you meant to convey with your faulty language skills and non-existent reasoning?

9/17/2008 3:30:56 PM


Yeah, I'll go "Oh God Oh God I'm going to die!" should I be in dire straits. But that's what I've been taught to say, the same way I've been taught to say bless you when you sneeze.

9/17/2008 3:34:02 PM

To me, that's equal to turning to my rose bush for help.

9/17/2008 3:35:25 PM

Son of a Nonymous


Does that rose bush actually exist?

9/17/2008 3:44:49 PM


"Sadistically" -- best and most apt misspelling I've seen in a long, long time.

9/17/2008 3:49:10 PM


"without a dout "

I think he meant "doit", as in "Kevisaurus is a doit!"

Eighty-nine per cent of all sadistics are made up.

Dout? Oh, I know: God dout. (That kind of works with a New Zealand accent).

The most renounced of atheist? What the hell does that mean?

"[Question: Who does an atheist turn to in their darkest hours?] "

A light bulb, both literally and metaphorically. The problems that have plagued humans in the past such as uh plague were solved by rational thinking. If you fundies had your way we would still be flogging ourselves on the way to church to stop disease.

9/17/2008 4:19:29 PM


Uh No. Actually, not having a deity, I'm forced to confront the hardship and find a way to deal with it. Saves time and trouble of asking, pleading, and begging the sky daddy to change things.

9/17/2008 4:26:03 PM


I don't turn to God. I might turn to my friends, but I don't have any imaginary friends.

9/17/2008 4:48:22 PM


I could care less about not having a deity. Rather than begging a non-existent Sky Daddy for help during a crisis, I find my own solutions to the problems at hand.

Now you can bite me.

Get out of my foxhole!

Liar, liar, pants on fire!
