Quote# 54547

You atheists think that you are smart. I know because I used to be one. As a former atheist, I can tell you that YOU JUST DON'T WANT THERE TO BE A GOD. It's like your right to privacy as applied to the universe, and your freedom to indulge in your OWN DESIRES AND BELIEFS. But ALL YOU REALLY HAVE is an explosion and an utterly improbable series of random occurences. SCIENCE IS ONLY FAITH IN DOUBT! THAT IS EXACTLY HOW IT DEFINES ITSELF!

THERE ARE REASONS FOR EVERYTHING!

This guy just advertises himself. Please take your holier-than-thou bullshit and shove it back to your shithole of a head.

"You atheists think that you are smart. I know because I used to be one."

Ah, then you discovered you were not smart enough to be an atheist.


"As a former atheist, I can tell you that YOU JUST DON'T WANT THERE TO BE A GOD. It's like your right to privacy as applied to the universe, and your freedom to indulge in your OWN DESIRES AND BELIEFS."

As a former Christian, I can tell you YOU JUST WANT THERE TO BE A GOD. It's like you are so desperate to feel loved and special that you'll believe any ridiculous tales which help fill those needs.


"But ALL YOU REALLY HAVE is an explosion and an utterly improbable series of random occurences."

But ALL YOU REALLY HAVE is ancient fairy tales and wishful thinking.


"SCIENCE IS ONLY FAITH IN DOUBT! THAT IS EXACTLY HOW IT DEFINES ITSELF!"

Doubt is one of the pillars of wisdom.


"THERE ARE REASONS FOR EVERYTHING!"

I agree, but deities and magic are not those reasons.

This guy was never an atheist. Should he have been, he would have been smart enough to NOT be brainwashed. A Christian saying that they were once an Atheist and now Christian is the dumbest (yet effective) tactic in this war.

As a former atheist

I call bullshit. You may have been religiously lazy, but you were never an atheist. Your liberal application of the caps lock key does not convince me otherwise.

a mind far far away

Atheism doesn't work that way. Logic doesn't work that way. Lying for jeebus does work that way, however.

BECAUSE EVERYTHING THAT WAS TRUE ABOUT ME WHEN I WAS AN ATHEIST IS BY DEFINITION 100% APPLICABLE TO YOU!

Because all atheists think the same things, obviously. They get all their ideas from one book. That the book came out about two years ago proves that all atheists are babies.

Wow, that was convincing.

There is no such thing as a "former atheist". That would require serious brain damage.

But ALL YOU REALLY HAVE is an explosion and an utterly improbable series of random occurences

The Bible has a magician who has existed forever and creates the universe out of nothing, a talking snake and a woman made out of a man's rib.

Which is less likely?

Yes, it's a nasty godless universe, and completly out of shake 'n vac.

Still, I call it home.

You may have been a former atheist. But you were also misinformed, uneducated, and probably not a skeptic.

What are the reason for half of the text being in caps?

If you secretly believed in God all along and were just rebelling like a stubborn teenager, then by definition you WEREN'T an atheist. If I lie and say I'm Christian and go to church, that might get assholes like you off my back but it won't make me magically start believing in God.

Well, this t-shirt hasn't been ironed for a few days, but it's nice of you to say so.

You atheists think that you are smart

I can only speak for myself when I say I've never considered myself to be of more than average intelligence. I freely admit that I'm no mental giant, but I also freely admit that I do not have all the answers. Can you say the same?

I know because I used to be one

So you say, but your characterization of atheists as a monolithic group where everyone thinks they are a genius and all want just do things solely for their own pleasure leads me to believe that you, in fact, were not an atheist, and are just saying you were one as a way to give your arguement a completely undue and false sense of legitimacy.

As a former atheist, I can tell you that YOU JUST DON'T WANT THERE TO BE A GOD.

If you were truly an atheist then you would know that that is not the case, and you would also know that you don't get to tell me, or anyone else what they believe. It doesn't matter whether an atheists want there to be a god or not, reality doesn't conform to what people what. Until there is evidence capable of proving to me that a "god" does infact exist I am incapable of beliving in one. What a person wants has no bearing on what is.

It's like your right to privacy as applied to the universe

Privacy has nothing to do with it. If "god" is incapable of giving me enough proof that he exists then I would hardly have to worry about privacy.

and your freedom to indulge in your OWN DESIRES AND BELIEFS.

Your religion claims that I have free will. So you tell me you sactimonious, holier than thou fuck, If I have free will (As your beliefs claim I do) then why would the existence or non-existence of your "god" have any bearing on whether or not I indulge my own desires? And is that not, in fact, the exact same thing you are doing? Indulging in your own desire to feel superior, to feel special, to hate those you see as being lesser to yourself?

But ALL YOU REALLY HAVE is an explosion and an utterly improbable series of random occurences.

If you had been an atheist as you claim then you were apparently a very misinformed one, otherwise you would know that the words Big Bang are a euphamism for rapid expansion, and not refering to any sort of literal explosion. You should also know that in evolutionary theory "random occurences" are not at all what is being described. All you have succeded in doing is creating a strawman of what you want atheists to believe, and not what they actually do. Congratulations, that makes you a liar.

SCIENCE IS ONLY FAITH IN DOUBT! THAT IS EXACTLY HOW IT DEFINES ITSELF!

No, it isn't and it doesn't.

THERE ARE REASONS FOR EVERYTHING!

Why? The fact that you so desperatly want there to be a reason for everything doesn't mean that there is. By your reasoning then there must also be a reason that I'm an atheist.

You clearly were never an atheist. Because it's impossible to become a CAPS LOCK FIEND if you were previously an atheist.
