New Atheism would be more accurately named FauxAtheism: They don't deny the existence of the supernatural, they just worship devil spirits and call it "Earth science" or environmentalism. When these spiritualists get around to hooking " the planet/Gaia" up to an EKG & showing me "her" heartbeat, pricking "her" with a telephone pole and bringing forth blood &/ getting their messiah David Eick to walk on water, maybe they can legitimately sell it as "science".

Atheism doesn't work that way.

New-age conspiracy theorists, however, DO.

"They state that atheism, backed by recent scientific advancement, has reached the point where it is time to take a far less accommodating attitude toward religion, superstition, and religious fanaticism than had been extended by some atheists and secularists."

From the article on new atheism on Wikipedia.

Took me 10 fucking seconds.

They don't just deny it - they say we should be more vocal in telling you fuckwits that its a crock of shit!

He's not even trying to make sense any more, is he?

I deny the existence of the supernatural. Now what?

getting their messiah David Eick to walk on water

The guy from Battlestar Galactica is what now?

You still havn't grasped the concept of old atheism. You went right off a cliff with your "new atheism"

Could someone please give some English lessons to Ted, or at least get him a decent dictionary? He doesn't seem to know the etymology of 'atheism', and that an atheist, by definition, does not worship anything, recognises no god or demon, and consequently regards Ted as a gobshite.

BTW, David Eike is totally misspelled. It's David Icke. As far as I recall he believes that the British Royals are all lizards...or some such nonsense.

I don't believe the earth is a god. But if I stab it hard enough, it bleeds lava, with boat shoes anyone can walk on water. :P

Wait.

Did Way-farerTed just manage to confuse Richard Dawkins with David Icke?

Complete and utter win! If you're playing the game of being a total and inexcusable failure, that is.

They don't deny the existence of the supernatural, they just worship devil spirits

And you're either using psychic powers to read their mind (which according to fundies is a sin) or you're lying (which is also a sin). Otherwise there's no possible way you could claim to know what they're actually thinking. Your move.

and call it "Earth science" or environmentalism.

No, Earth science and environmentalism have to do with learning about the planet we live on and not destroying it (respectively).

When these spiritualists get around to hooking " the planet/Gaia" up to an EKG & showing me "her" heartbeat, pricking "her" with a telephone pole and bringing forth blood &/ getting their messiah David Eick to walk on water, maybe they can legitimately sell it as "science".

As an atheist, WTF are you talking about????

Atheism doesn't work that way. Neither does environmentalism... or science.

I'm pretty sure atheism, the biosphere, interlocking ecosystems, geophysics, magnetism, angular momentum, weather and the atmosphere, and all the other phenomena and disciplines that are a subset of "Earth Science" don't work that way. I'll have to ask you to get back to me though, because I'm still quantifying the subtle nuances and lasting effects of New Coke.

Edit: @ Doctor Whom: I just noticed those are human eyeballs inside those goggles. Must be a demon! :-)

Considering that most of David "Eick"'s claims are ridiculous bullshit, I doubt you'd find many people on the scientific end of things who believe a single thing he says. Every Icke fan I've ever run across has been a far right wingnut.

Our messiah is David Eick? I wasn't that big of a fan of Battlestar Galactica.

If I don't know who David Eick is then odds are he's not my Messiah...

"New Atheism would be more accurately named FauxAtheism"

Neoconism (of which it and the Religious Right aren't mutually exclusive) would be more accurately named "FauxNewsism":



Because like Faux News, Neoconism is exactly like right-wing Fundamentalist Christianity. It does the thinking for you.

"They don't deny the existence of the supernatural"

How can we Atheists not deny the existence of the supernatural', yet in the same breath deny the existence of a God(s)?!

"they just worship devil spirits"

'Devil', 'God', all part of the same fairytale. Your point, Way-farter Ted?

"and call it "Earth science" or environmentalism"

Have you got a spare world that you can travel to at any time? Got your own spaceship in your backyard? (in b4 'Heaven's Gate' :P ) If the answers to either/both of these questions is the only one possible, you've just answered your own question. You've also destroyed your own argument.

"When these spiritualists get around to hooking " the planet/Gaia" up to an EKG & showing me "her" heartbeat, pricking "her" with a telephone pole and bringing forth blood &/ getting their messiah David Eick to walk on water, maybe they can legitimately sell it as "science".

We Atheists consider David Icke as much a loony-tunes weirdo and freak as you right-wing Fundamentalist Christians are, with your bullshit 'beliefs' & 'faith', and this whole 'afterlife after you die' bollocks you constantly spew.

I love the smell of destroyed arguments in the morning. Smells like... victory.
