Quote# 8019

['Hypothetically, if someone were to show you sufficient proof that it is likely that no deities exist, what would you do?']

I don't know, I guess I would probably have sex with as many pretty women as possible and cheat on my taxes and few other things that I thought I could get away with without getting caught. I would also try to make as much money as possible by just about any means possible, ie using other people as stepping stones. And just live for immediate gratification.

It's is depressing that for some people morality requires the threat of a deity.

You mean you'd be a televangelist, right?

This guy is just confirming what most people probably thought about him anyway.

From what I understand about most religions (xianity being the most likely case here), this person would be bound for hell anyway.

I still have yet to see an answer to why an atheist, any atheist, can be a good person (being defined as not going against the law), without morals which must be provided by god.

That is, unless every atheist who is good is secretly a Christian, and every Christian who is bad is secretly an atheist. Now some people might say I'm changing the evidence to confirm my beliefs. But screw them, they are just working with the devil.

Ricky, I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. I hope you are.

Well, I don't think he was being sarcastic ... I think he just missed the word \"not\" in the first part of his statement, e.g., \"I still have yet to see an answer to why an atheist, any atheist, can NOT be a good person (being defined as not going against the law), without morals which must be provided by god.\"

If you can't see why one should not be a total hedonist and have no heed for your long-term values, and need a God to tell you that, you're an idiot. Go watch Ikiru, for crying out loud (a Japanese movie, may I add, not a Christian one). Dammit you Christians are fucking stupid. But why do I expect basic moral reasoning from a religion that is against reasoning ?

Francois,

In the last part of your post, you just did what you accused the original poster and Ricky of doing.

Not all of us Christians think this way, and not all of us are \"F---ing\" stupid. If one of us came on here and said \"athiests are stupid\" you'd have a field day.

\"Not all of us Christians think this way, and not all of us are \"F---ing\" stupid.\" -- No, but those of you who aren't, still support a fucking stupid religion. And that makes you what we commonly call a \"bad person\".

Not sure why my previous post posted twice, but okay.

Francois,

Well, I'm sorry you feel that way.

And just to let you know, I don't support any \"religion\". I support Jesus Christ, and he loves you too. :)

\"I don't support any \"religion\". I support Jesus Christ\"

Sophistry.


\"and he loves you too.\"

The imaginary character of the Bible only likes Jewish converts, and I am not a Jewish convert. But thanks anyway, idiot.

Francois, no offense, but you're kind of being a jerk.

Its okay guys. I'll pray for you Francois, whether you like it or not, and may God bless you.

For all atheists: what is immoral with any of the things I mentioned and why?

10/3/2005 3:52:13 AM

I love elitist atheists. They stand to remind us that there are dumb fucks on both sides of the tracks.

Ed,

Most things that you have to worry about getting caught for doing in the first place are things that involve other people, or more specifically, infringe on other people. Tax fraud, for example. Stepping on other people, etc.

Those are the ones I consider immoral. Because it infringes on others in a negative way.

Ed, it's not that it's necessarily immoral, it's just that it's fuckin dumb. That's the only real problem - you're being a moron.

If the only reason that you're playing nice with the world is that you're afraid of going to hell ... then you really need to re-evaluate your life.

I do not believe in your god, your heaven, your hell, etc. I believe that, when I die, I'm going to be dead, and that's it. But you know, I don't have to believe that God's gonna kick my ass in order to convince me to be good to other people. I just treat people the way I'd expect I should be treated in similar circumstances. You know, I seem to get by just fine on that. No trouble with the law, no trouble with my girlfriend, no real trouble with much of anything at all.

And the best part ... I know that I'm gonna fuck up now and then, but I'm not living in fear of eternal damnation when I do. It's a very liberating experience.

Amen brother Jesse. I agree.

\"Francois, no offense, but you're kind of being a jerk.\"
\"Francois, do us a favor: stop being a dick.\"

How may I put this politely...

Hmmm...

Oh yea. Go to Hell.

\"I love elitist atheists. They stand to remind us that there are dumb fucks on both sides of the tracks.\"

Who's more fucked up ? Someone who's honest, or someone who thinks \"elitist\" is an insult ?

10/3/2005 9:57:03 PM

Incidentally, none of you idiots have said anything against what I said, to wit :

\"If you can't see why one should not be a total hedonist and have no heed for your long-term values, and need a God to tell you that, you're an idiot.\"

So can I conclude that all your pathetic whining is completely useless, or can you somehow rub two neurons together and come up with an actual response ?

10/3/2005 9:58:41 PM

Ed

No, I obey God because I love Him not because I am afraid of going to hell. But xminion, why is impacting people negatively immoral? People and animals get impacted negatively everyday, that is just a fact of life. Other than personal preferences there is no source of oughtness in regard to that (if there is no God). And YW why is suffering bad? Evolution produces great suffering everyday, that means it just IS. There is nothing that tells us we OUGHT not cause suffering other than people's preferences.
