Quote# 75690

An atheist can say that he doesnt believe in God but has no idea what is to come. Almost the same as someone standing on a busy highway and saying "I don't believe in cars" but they also don't know what is coming either, lol

It's a lot harder not to believe in cars than it is not to believe in an invisible, intangible magician who never seems to do anything that couldn't be explained by natural forces. Here's a better analogy:

An atheist can say that he doesn't believe in God but has no idea what is to come. Almost the same as someone standing on the corner and saying "I don't believe in unicorns" but they also don't know what is coming either, lol

Well, hey, he could get trampled by a unicorn, couldn't he? I mean, just because no one has ever seen one or seen any tangible evidence whatsoever that they exist, you can't prove he couldn't, could you?

What religion does to the mind.

Any questions?

An idiot can say that they don't believe in cars, but they are still very much capable of trying to safely observe cars, from the side of the road, before running into danger. However, nobody can observe your god anymore than they can observe any other mythological figures that allegedly threaten doom if you do not believe in them.

That said, if the cars were invisible and super quiet, regardless of speed... no, no then you'd still be able to observe other people going splat when they decided to challenge the idea of invisible death cars. Plus, any driver who doesn't, at the absolute least, try to honk their horn so as to alert the person to impending danger, is a monster. Therefore, unless you're trying to make the point that your god is a monster, your analogy fails on multiple levels.

Cars can be observed. Deities not so much.

Does God like running people over on the highway of life?

God used to drive an Infinite Whizbang but he traded it in for an Infiniti, or something like that.

God's gonna run us over! Run!

"I don't believe in cars"

Then that means you're a heretic, Joe:

Well, you should go stand on a busy highway and God will protect you from the cars, that would show us.

Go ahead, try it.

No. It's almost the same as someone standing, sitting or crouching anywhere, saying "I don't believe in deities for whom there is no evidence credible evidence exist and for whom there is plenty of evidence supporting their non-existence.

P.S. Believing in a fairy tale does not bestow worthwhile ideas of what is to come, facts do that.

You believe in God, but can you give me evidence, other than the bible, for what you "know" is coming?

A better analogy would be "Standing underneath one of Santa's reindeer not knowing what's coming."

8/31/2010 11:47:16 AM


I can see cars. I can ride in cars. I can see pictures of cars.

I don't see god or any evidence that he exists.

8/31/2010 11:50:41 AM


An believer can say that he believes in God but has no idea what is to come. Almost the same as someone standing on a busy highway and praying "Please God, don't let them hit me" but they also don't know what is coming either, lol

Yet another in a long series of stupid arguments from theists.
A man who doesn't believe in cars can be shown that cars exit and travel at a high rate of speed on highways. He can even be shown what happens to a man-sized object when it gets hit by a car.
When are you going to show us this god of yours and prove what he can do?

I guess I could be afraid of getting hit by the ANTI-CHRYSLER HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW

Yes, in the same way that you can stand in the middle of a crowded parking lot around your one car and say it is the only true car, and no other cars really exist or were put there by the devil.

You believe. We simply say there's no evidence supporting such a belief.

8/31/2010 1:01:00 PM


So...God is going to splatter me across the highway, or something?

Do you want some herp with your derp, John?

8/31/2010 1:31:55 PM


Except that I can see cars coming.

8/31/2010 1:49:58 PM


I don't believe in cars in the regard that I don't believe they are as good an idea as they initially seem. Does that count?

Aww, Mr. Spak and Aura Twilight beat me to the iron chariots.

Highway 3:14-17: "(14) And I shall charge forward with mine accelerator upon the floor, aye, and I shall not stop though the unbelievers scream in terror. (15) Even unto meatpaste shall I render them. (16) And my window shalt be open upon them, that I may cry out: Iron chariot, bitches! (17) For I am the Way and the Truth and the Light."
