Quote# 72025

We Christians gave the World Easter - what did we get from...?
What did we get from Atheists and Evolutionists?

They enjoy our Holy day and in return they give us pond scum (Richard Dawkins)

"Yes, we are all animals, descendants of a vast lineage of replicators sprung from primordial pond scum."
(J. Morgan, "The new social Darwinists", Scientific American 273(4): 150-157, October 1995; quote on p. 151)

What else they will give us this Easter? They say that we are pagans because we celebrate the death and Resurrection of our Lord on Easter Holy day which they say is paganism.

Logic fail?

I really wish you would speak in coherent sentences.

You didn't give me anything. I bought this motherfucking chocolate myself!

...Wait, christians? Oh shut up, Easter is about the Chocolate Bunnies.

So...

Tell me...

What does Jesus have to do with Eggs or Bunnies...?

we celebrate the death and Resurrection of our Lord on Easter Holy day which they say is paganism.

Logic fail?


Why logic fail? Here's the reasoning:

a-i) No one has ever been known to come back from the dead after three days. By day 3 after death, profound and irreversible chemical changes have taken place in our bodies, and bacteria have begun digesting us.

a-ii) Therefore by inductive reasoning, it isn't to be believed.

b-i) There is no evidence for the Resurrection outside of the Bible.

b-ii) Throughout history, people have been known to make up things about God in an effort to gain status or control people.

b-iii) Therefore, the story of the resurrection is likely to have been made up by people.

What is your logical process?

Yes, Jebus was born on 12/25 and bunnies and eggs are completely related to dying on a cross and then ressurecting, why do you ask?

Actually Easter falls on a different day each year because it's time of the year is based on the Pagan lunar calander. How's that for a fun fact?

Actually the pagans gave the world eostre which the christians usurped and altered from a fertility celebration to a creepy fetish with a tortured jewish zombie.

Seriously. Where the fuck do you think the bunnies, chicks and eggs come from?

Also your holy day is more of an annoyance than anything. Why the hell aren't secular stores open on bloody easter?

aaa

I don't think logic works the way you think.

(Some time passes)

"But apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?"

The "answer" to the question is brilliant.

Modern antibiotics, understanding of genetic diseases, ability to test for genetic illness, better understanding of our psychology by studying our evolutionary path, ability to better match organ donations, prediction and prevention of infectious disease, understanding of how to eradicate existing communicable diseases, ability to catch criminals via DNA evidence, etc., etc.


(...)

None of that can possibly live up to the lofty standards set by your contribution of a family dinner and a hunt for coloured eggs, but we'll keep trying.

a-i) No one has ever been known to come back from the dead after three days.

Yeah, but be fair, Jebus was only dead a day and half, tops. (Died Friday night, pops up as good as new, bar a few holes, on Sunday morning).

They are right.

@ GigaGuess

Didn't Jesus, like, hide eggs for the kids after his resurrection? I think that story is actually in one of the more obscure writings, "The Gospel of St. Bartholomew the Fucking Insane."

"They" say you are pagan. Just who the fuck are "They"?

Pagans are more open minded than "you". Though I do not share their beliefs, I certainly would never insult them in the manner you've indicated.

The only person failing at logic is you.

Actually it is a fail on many levels.

Also, it may be Easter to you, to me it is Sunday.

It's the same ridiculous, misinformed argument every year.

For the last time, we Pagans gave you a beautiful fertility celebration that includes eggs, bunnies and cute little chicks, which all symbolize new life. You changed it to suit yourselves and haven't the slightest concept where the eggs, bunnies and chicks came from, or what they have to do with Jesus.

Hardly the same thing.

It's called knowledge of history, retards.

Because when Jesus was resurrected from the tomb, he then went around the world in a bunny suit hiding brightly colored eggs and leaving candy for all the good little kids.
