Quote# 69936

Picking and choosing data from science, and ignoring the rest... is exactly what all the religions of the world do with their source material. Methodist, baptist, catholic, jewish, orthodox jewish, etc... The religion of atheism, belief system based on something that can't be proven scientifically, has so much in common with them it is pretty funny to me.

Kid, you are young and dumb. Go get yourself an education.

Oh dear, someone's got us confused with Scientology again.

Picking and choosing data from science that can't be proven scientifically?


2/1/2010 2:00:42 PM


Kent is that you?

Lemme guess, this kid believes that he has a "personal relationship with Jesus" and isn't part of a religion.

Religion of Atheism. Wouldn't that be like the Hobby of Not Collecting Stamps?
There are no belief systems to atheism, retard, it's simply a disbelief in deities.
For the record, find me the scientific evidence for Bible God.

For the 183,239,947,476th time, atheism is not a religion and simply describes people who don't believe in any gods. Atheism doesn't state that you have to actively vow that there are no gods. And by your own definition, whatever religion you follow is just as irrational.

"The religion of atheism, belief system based on something that can't be proven scientifically."

We already know that, the difference is that most of us admit that this is the case, to my knowledge. The word 'probably' can speak volumes on the subject.
To be fair, I think moderate theists also make no absolute claim that their specific God is scientifically proven, but don't quote me on that.

P.S - Some questions:
1. If atheism is a religion what the hell isn't?
2. If atheism is a religion, does it come part & parcel with the religions of liberalism, globel warming, evolution and future topics fundementalists will try to discredit by claiming it as religion, or are they separate believe's altogether?
3. If atheism is a religion, WHERE IS MY TAX CUT?!

Thank you and good day.

You thinking atheism is a religion is pretty funny to me.

2/1/2010 2:46:45 PM


My religion is not believing in the purple mushroom-bunny of Mars.

2/1/2010 2:51:05 PM


Okay, someone finally needs to send me the atheist bible all these fundies are talking about. I feel left out, almost as if... I wasn't part of some dogma. Hmmm...

Hmmm, if non-belief WERE a religion, we'd be the second largest congregation in the U.S., after Catholics.

But atheism IS the data that you're picking and choosing FROM.

2/1/2010 4:16:53 PM


Atheism doesn't work that way.

Besides, if you can give me scientific evidence of whatever it is you believe, I'm willing to consider it. The problem is that you're not providing this evidence, not that we're ignoring it.

I was condescending to adults and knew everything when I was 14 too.

2/1/2010 4:37:46 PM

Oh my...see, the thing with science is that you can't pick and choose since it's all interellated. Biology, chemisty and physics are all closely linked and ignoring even one of them means that you'll never have a shot at having a complete understanding of any of them.

And yes, scientists do specialize in very specific areas since we only live so long and wouldn't be able to learn everything in one lifetime. It also means that they can become experts in that specific field and can focus their studies on one thing at a time.

2/1/2010 4:47:04 PM


awesome. not only does this person not know any other religions other than Christianity and Judaism, they also do not know what atheism is at all.

And I'd bet a cookie that this is one of those "I don't follow a religion, I have a relationship with Jesus" people

Atheism is not a belief system, sonny. It's a non-belief system.

Can't prove non - belief scientifically? What?

"The religion of atheism, belief system based on something that can't be proven scientifically, has so much in common with them it is pretty funny to me."

Atheism is the lack of belief in a deity.
I do not believe in a deity
Therefore I am an atheist
Therefore atheism has been proven scientifically.

Lets test it - Ask me if I believe in a god...

P.S. - Atheism is a religion like bald is a hair color.

2/1/2010 6:16:53 PM


Yeah, choosing not to acknowledge or believe in God is totally a belief system in common with other religions! Yeah!

Show me one belief system that can be proved scientifically. You can't because beliefs by definition can't be proven. If you can scientifically prove something, then it's not a belief system.

2003 is your birth year, right? You're 6/7 right?

2/1/2010 11:34:19 PM


Methodist, baptist, catholic, jewish, orthodox jewish

Or basically christian, christian, christian, jew, jew. You're either a Poe or brilliantly stupid.

2/1/2010 11:45:26 PM

Exactly what you're doing. First of all, Atheism is not a religion.
