"Do you have another God?"

Fundies don't seem to grasp this whole "atheist" thing.


"Im not Atheists ..."

Again:

Atheist - Singular
Atheists - Plural

Why can't you ever get this right?

Well, at least she wants to learn. That's one step in the right direction.

I actually find the "best answer" more amusing/scary:

"oh, sweetie, you're asking for it! get ready for a lot of abuse. hope you've got a thick skin... many months of poking and prodding here have given me ample evidence to conclusively state that for reasons unexplained, many atheists are among those who detest being questioned the most, and lash out the most aggressively when they are. i dunno why. just is. and i say many. not all. but many. fact, hercule. fact!"

Shiny mirror, anyone?

Seriously, would it really be too much trouble to look up the word atheist in a dictionary?

I'd explain it to you, but I think a piece of drywall has a better chance of understanding than your brain does.

I don't believe in any god because none have been proven to exist. Moreover, I have no trouble touching a Bible. Just like a flag is just a flag, a teacup is just a teacup, and a church is just a building, the Bible is just a book. I get my morality from the same place you do: from my own independent thought process. It's not that complicated.

"Why are people atheists?"

Because I find the whole concept to be ridiculous and without evidence; n.b. I might accept something, however ridiculous, if there is sufficiently compelling evidence to do so (i.e. quantum theory). Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, most religions don't even have ordinary evidence.

Viewed pragmatically, I have more empirical evidence for Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy than for God. Someone ate those mince pies and left those presents, someone took my baby teeth and left those coins, but no-one ever answered my prayers as a child.

"What do you actually believe in and in what way?"

I believe in an objective reality that is amenable to study and that behaves in a consistent and predictable manner. I believe that the best way to understand this reality is to through the detailed and accurate observation of it. I believe that ideas and explanations as to the cause or pattern of those observations should be open to both criticism and empirical testing. I believe that things that fail such testing should be (broadly) considered false.

"Do you have another God?"

No.

"Why do some not even like to touch the bible?"

I don't know, I own several bibles and have no qualms about touching them. Perhaps some people are less than comfortable with the uses the bible has been put to by, and excuses it has furnished for, its 'adherents' down the years?

I appreciate you wanting to know, but I find your lack of imagination as incomprehensible as you apparently find my lack of belief.

To paraphrase Stephen Roberts; you reject the notion of all gods except one, I reject those same gods plus one.

It's that simple.

I'd give you an answer, Care Bears, if your question wasn't so facetiously insincere.

Well, as I understgand it, Atheists are just like Penguinists, only without the requisite penguin-worship.

Why do some not even like to touch the bible?

Because I don't want to get any blood on my nice clean hands.

a mind far far away

A theist who believes the way atheists do? This guy is severely grammatically challenged. I think you need a dictionary, and quick. Atheists don't BELIEVE anything. We accept reality and rationality. And NO, we don't have 'some other god'. Except maybe Cheetos. Damn, I love Cheetos. And what in the hell do you mean "some people say I believe the way atheists do b/c how I talk about the way I feel things around me."? You feel things around you? Like what, trees, rocks, birds, squirrels, cars, houses, people, lampposts, grass, paper, air? Yeah, we can touch and feel all those things too, but I don't think it's anything supernatural or spiritual. It has more to do with the five natural senses. And "Please I need to know?"? Either learn some grammar before trying to actually talk to other people, or if this is a question, then I have to answer no.

Indoctrinated to the bone, yet open to other opinions. Not sure he, she or it is really a fundie.

Why? Why is it so fucking hard to understand? A-theist = without belief in god/gods.

Typical fundie FUD.

"Why are people atheists?"

Because we don't believe in the existence of any gods or the supernatural.

"What do you acually beleive in and in what way?"

We don't believe in anything, that's what the word means.

"Do you have another God?"

No, hence the term atheist.

"Why do some not even like to touch the bible?"

Personally I've read it cover to cover twice. But why do most fundies never bother to read the whole bible?

"Iv been wanting to know this like forever."

Good, curiosity is a redeeming quality.

"Why are people atheists? " "Do you have another God? "

Why are christianists so stupid? Does their god send them to hell for being smart?

Why are people fundy xtians?

Im not xtians and will never be but some people say I believe the way xtians do b/c how I talk about the way I feel things around me. Why? Please I need to know? You will get the highest score!!! :)

Atheists not wanting totouch the bible?
Atheists maybe believing in other gods?

This sounds like he got all his knowledge about atheists from christian fundamentalist propaganda ;)

"Why are people atheists?"

No evidence. Why the hell is that so hard to understand.

"What do you acually beleive in and in what way?"

Evidence. Because it's a damned sight better than "believing" because some religious leader told me to or I'd burn in hell.

"Do you have another God?"

*sigh*

Yes. The god of atheism of course. He has all the same physical properties of your god and even answers prayers in the same fashion. Come to think of it, he shares qualities with every deity ever created.

"Why do some not even like to touch the bible?"

Eeet burnses us's!

*evil hiss*

"Tell me everything?"

Can't. It's against the E.A.C. bylaws. You'll have to deconvert first and then we'll tell you everything.

"Iv been wanting to know this like forever."

Forever, huh? Couldn't find a dictionary in all that time?

"Im not Atheists and will never be but some people say I believe the way atheists do b/c how I talk about the way I feel things around me. Why? Please I need to know? You will get the highest score!!! :)"

How the hell would I know, they're your screwy friends that say it. They probably know just as much about atheism as you do.

As far as I can tell, we're actually a little-known branch of Islam.

Atheists believe in one less god that you do Care Bears.

"What do you acually(sic) beleive(sic) in"

Well, to begin with, literacy.

A stupid question, perhaps, but it's also an honest one. It's not like I'm offended or anything.

11/3/2008 2:27:36 PM



No,atheists have no god or bunch of worthless rituals at all. Well, maybe that last part is nontheist.

11/3/2008 2:40:03 PM



This isn't particularly fundie, just ignorant (seriously, you really shouldn't need to ask if atheists have a God).

1) I'm an atheist because there are no gods.

2) I believe in the power of people to make positive changes.

3) No I do not have ANY God, or gOd or goD.

4) That is just absurd, I own three bibles, I touch them whenever I take them down to use as reference sources.

5) Tell you what? Everything? Cant be done.
