Quote# 60430

*discussing an article in the Independent about the biological underpinnings of religious faith and how the "god spot" evolved in the brain*

The existence of that spot is more proof of an intelligent creator

It's like a remote control car with an antenna to receive the signal. A rock doesn't have an antenna to receive no signal.

Except the "God spot" doesn't actually receive...you know what, forget it.

What? Is this guy serious?

Ain't got no edumatation

1. Rocks aren't alive, genius.

2. Humans don't receive an "antennae" to receive any "signal," either.

3. You are a moron.

That is all.

I think Goesto11 is being sarcastic.

*Googles articles about the "God Spot"*

And yet, I have zero belief in god(s), nor do I experience or require any sort of "religious experiences."

You would think, if the "God Spot" was some sort of "antennae" designed by God to speak with/control us, we'd ALL have it hardwired in, wouldn't we?

Rather than simply being a collection of parts of the brain that are stimulated when one believes they are having some sort of religious and/or "god" experience.

Sarcastic Poe is sarcasic.

"A rock doesn't have an antenna to receive no signal"
This grammatical cluster fuck confirms it - Goesto11 is a rock.

And yet, strangely enough, you are proof of an almighty blunderer. So there can't be a divine being. You are living proof that God doesn't exist.

a mind far far away

God spot? What the hell is that? There's no such thing as a "god spot".

Mister Spak

The rock in your head don't have no ability to think no thoughts.

3/11/2009 7:26:20 AM


OTOH, any man who *can* find the G-Spot *is* a God.

3/11/2009 7:33:00 AM


It's called the imagination.

Goesto11 conveniently ignores the word 'evolved', which lends a bit of sweetness to the irony.

3/11/2009 7:33:37 AM


It is proof of unnatural selection, that is all. The various shamans and clergy over the millennia have removed the non-superstitious from the gene pool by means of ostracism, stoning, fire, etc. We who are born without an overdeveloped god spot are the throwbacks.

Using double negatives doesn't make you look as stupid as you real aren't

3/11/2009 8:22:07 AM


Is your god spot in place of your grammar spot?

3/11/2009 8:36:43 AM

A.Why the fuck is this on DU?

B.i knew the moment i saw this some christard would try to claim having your brain repond to religion *like it does to every single possible stimulus*. Another claimed that the shape of the spot matches the red thing behind god in the sistine chapel.

3/11/2009 8:39:27 AM

"try to claim having your brain repond to religion "

Means their religion is true. How'd I forget that? and of course if you told them Muslims and Hindus have the exact same brain response they'd go apeshit and deny it.

3/11/2009 8:47:29 AM


Your post is proof of unintelligent design.

3/11/2009 9:00:11 AM


OTOH, any man who *can* find the G-Spot *is* a God.

Find it? Heck! That is only the beginning, finding it will not do you much good....

I guess I must be above gods since I can do a lot more than just finding it!

3/11/2009 9:15:24 AM


Now that explains everything.

3/11/2009 9:32:48 AM


You clearly missed the point. The implication is that god(s) are -created by the brain-, not that they actually exist.

3/11/2009 9:54:10 AM

Seriously, why is this at DU? Last time I heard about that place you wher banned for saying anything positive about republicans. basically a far-left fee republic. When did they start accepting creationists?

3/11/2009 10:17:16 AM


I always thought a man's eqiovalent to the G-Spot was his prostate. Mind you, it is divine when it's massaged! LOL Hehehehe!

3/11/2009 10:40:35 AM


I think this guy's just getting static...
