Quote# 54462

Ironically most free thinking atheists still have there own "absurd" spiritual vices. Astrology, numerology, chakras, fate, karma,feng shui, auras, luck and the list goes on.

Say what? This is news to me.

No, stupid, those are free thinking pagans, Wiccans, Buddhists, Hindus, etc. Despite what you so desperately want to believe, atheists have no gods and don't normally believe in the supernatural.

12/16/2008 10:43:15 PM


And your evidence for this is ...

12/16/2008 10:43:28 PM

Er, no. I include all things superstitious or supernatural in my skepticism.

12/16/2008 10:47:27 PM


Heh you just charges atheists with the same thing that got Socrates exectued.

'Atheists are evil becuase they do not believe in gods but believe in gods.'

Apparently you are so retarded you don't understand the idiocy of this.

12/16/2008 10:48:40 PM


no, no, no, not really, no, no, no, no.

I'm putting a curse on this poster right now... Well, at least as soon as mars and my ass are in alignment.

Actually, compared to atheists, it seems that Christians are the only people that ask me for tarot readings and get all scared when the death card comes up in their reading. They don't listen when I tell them that it means change, though.

You fail. I don't buy any such. Nor do my atheist friends, so far as I know. See, "critical thinking" applies across the board. We don't suffer the same dichotomy of reality and wishful thinking.

luck is spiritual?

12/16/2008 10:55:10 PM


astrology - yes.. i know my sign... i'm not sure that REALLY means anything though

numerology - i got nothing...

chakras - uh... i'm not aware of wheels of energy on my body... but i'm willing to test this theory

fate - only if by fate you mean that we're "destined" to end up where we are because of all the things preceding this moment

karma - shitty things come back to you... usually hurled by the people you do shitty things to... this isn't magic... it's called memory

feng shui - as an atheist homosexual, I prefer to use my own instincts for my decorating

auras - dude... you're auras is hella brown... probably from the karma someone just flung back at you

luck - better know as fortuitous coincidence... that is all

The people you're referring to, by definition, are not atheists.

12/16/2008 11:03:49 PM



12/16/2008 11:03:53 PM


How about (E): None of the above?

12/16/2008 11:08:29 PM


no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no and no it doesn't!

Non-Christian =/= Atheist.

12/16/2008 11:23:26 PM


These people just don't get it, do they?

I suppose the reasoning is that anything fundies don't believe, atheists do believe.

12/16/2008 11:31:56 PM


Swing and a miss.

Check carefully, nitwit, and you'll find many Christian believers and non-believers believe in nonsense such as astrology, numerology, etc. However, I think you'll find atheists as a group are not likely to believe in such things as most atheists are familiar with critical thinking.

12/16/2008 11:36:23 PM


That wouldn't make them....oh, wait. I see what you're trying to do...

12/16/2008 11:38:51 PM


Luck?! Luck is a concept, and nothing more. When things work out in your favor, it's luck. No divine force attributed to it, just winning at chance.

12/16/2008 11:40:22 PM


I see the irony here, but it's not where you think it is.

I've never met an atheist who subscribes to any of this nonsense. Fundamentalist Christians, on the other hand, are the most credulous people on the face of the earth.

My only spiritual vice is praying to FSM that you choke on a meatball you fucking moron.

The Watcher

Even if that were true (which it isn't), what's your point?

12/16/2008 11:52:28 PM

While it is true that none of those things necessarily requires belief in a deity, you'll find that the same thought patterns that lead to Atheism will also lead one to reach the conclusion that all of those things are just as stupid as theism. Hence, while an Atheist *could* believe in those things, it isn't likely.

I have NEVER met a self-proclaimed atheist who also admitted to believing in any of that bullshit. Never. I've met some "agnostics" who did, but I've also never met an "agnostic" who actually knew what "agnostic" means, if you catch my drift.
