Quote# 48316

[a youtube channel named 'christianskeptics' with a following description]

How can you name a channel Christian Skeptics? Isn't a skeptic someone opposed to religion. Yes. I am opposed to religion, and I'm a Christian. Christianity is not a religion, but atheism is... so it is my intent to prove to you Christianity is not a religion, and that it is backed up with "many infallible proofs."
This channel is for Christians who are skeptical about atheism, darwinism, and all the other distractions, distracting us from what's important... Christ.

ROFL. The only word that comes to mind is irony.

(Again, Christianity.)

Wait - so am I reading this wrong? Does this person question whether or not skeptics exist?

I'll have to agree. Sounds pretty skeptical. I might have to read it again, though I am beginning to get lightheaded.

Somebody get this guy a dictionary, stat.

9/29/2008 8:18:15 PM

Wellcome to the wonderful world of semantics.

9/29/2008 8:18:46 PM


Atheism, isn't a religion, it's a personal relationship with reality.

9/29/2008 8:23:03 PM


Atheism is a religion. It is a stance on one single belief, so cannot be a belief system, and furthermore its stance is to lack that belief.

Why are you people so stupid?

9/29/2008 8:31:43 PM


so it is my intent to prove to you Christianity is not a religion,

Then pay your fucking taxes.

9/29/2008 8:33:41 PM


"so it is my intent to prove to you Christianity is not a religion"
Well, we all need goals, and sometimes if we achieve them, we didn't set the bar high enough. Good luck.

Atheism is not a religion. It is the very opposite of religion. It is disbelief.

Disbelief is no more a "belief system" than blindness is a vision system. This argument is like the claim that all people have a TV, but some people have a TV that is nonexistent.

Now, I'll go back to my comic book store where I dispense the insults rather than absorb them.

9/29/2008 8:39:54 PM


Christianity is not a religion. OK. Then it is not entitled to the protection of the First Amendment. Oh, you will have a lot of back taxes to pay too!

9/29/2008 8:43:12 PM


Oh please tell me that this is a Poe.

Well anyway he's atleast correct in putting quotation marks around "many infallible proofs"

9/29/2008 8:51:04 PM


Nope, still confused.

No matter how much you say Christianity is a religion, and atheism is, you're still wrong. Christianity is, and always will be, by definition, a religion. Likewise, atheism always will be the opposite of that.

Word definition FAIL.

9/29/2008 9:15:07 PM


Christianity is based on faith and there is not enough evidence to support all of its claims, therefore it must be a religion.

Atheism is the lack of belief in higher deities, closely associated with a belief only in ideas that are backed by evidence, therefore it cannot be a religion.

Is wrong of me to belly laugh at stupid people?
