Quote# 84042

[Could God have used a different tactic than the flood?]

Are you trying to tell God how to run the universe again? AND yes he could have used some different way.
He put the rainbow in the sky as a promise to never flood the earth again. It will be fire next time.

jinkies! Velma's lost both her glasses AND her mind!

So, if he intends to destroy the Earth again anyway (but with fire this time), promising never to flood the Earth again is a bit irrelevant, isn't it?

And God's comment on this revelation? "Yes, and I'd have got away with it too, if it hadn't been for those meddling kids!"

Your "god" is a dick.

Hate to tell you that isn't going to happen. And that rainbow thing yeah that is light and water, that's all. No God needed there, just science. the point of the whole rainbow story was to explain away something that primitive people didn't understand, we do understand it so no need for crummy mysticism there. And your flood was more then likely a large flood wiping out a few cities and towns of the time later retold in a larger way.

Welcome to the 21st century where we have science and technology.

Oh, yeah. Cause getting burned to death is so much better than drowning.

"Are you trying to tell God how to run the universe again?"

Are you trying to push your fairy tale again?

A different tactic for what?

There was no "Mission Accomplished" banner for Noah's Ark. Obviously, the alleged flood had no effect at all in purifying the world and preventing evil since your god thought it had to stage that whole Jesus episode a few centuries later. (And we all know how well that worked out.)

So your god is ALREADY planning to perform a Year Zero using fire? That proves that if your god exists he's a fucking sadist! Although I wouldn't agree, I could see using extreme measures when things unexpectedly get out of hand but that these extreme measures are all part of the plan as well as the events that lead to that extermination shows that your god is a psychopath!

I could run the universe better.

10/6/2011 5:20:16 AM


A bit off topic, but when the ice caps melt completely, there WILL be another flood, one that will make the biblical one look like light afternoon rain.

Although I'm not a big fan of mr. Yahweh, I will admit this: At least this time, He can put up his hands and sayeth: "don't look at me- you did this one yourselves, dipshits."

That sound was the point flying right over Velma's head.

Doubting Thomas

No, rainbows in the sky means God is having gay sex. If it's a double rainbow, he's having a threeway.

You seriously believe that there were no rainbows in the sky before the supposed global flood? Like light never refracted through rain droplets before.

Oh wait, fundies think knowing how things work = EVIL!!!

"Are you trying to tell God how to run the universe again?"

Yes. Got a problem with that? Are you God?

"AND yes he could have used some different way."

Yes. As in he could have just as easily poofed all those 'unrighteous' people out of existence, as he did poofing into existence this universe, this world & all the life on it. Or is God not 'omnipotent' enough to have done that, hmmmmm?! If he couldn't have done so, then he's not God. Your call.

I suggest you visit Tv Tropes, Velma, and search for the term 'Fridge Logic'. It exists for a reason.

"He put the rainbow in the sky as a promise to never flood the earth again."

So, for all those years before said 'Flood', it never rained anywhere on that world. Ever? Like I say, Velma: 'Fridge Logic'. We Atheists has it. Did you Bronze Age goatfuckers with ideas above your stations?

...besides, that first rainbow only proved that God had turned hyper-homo, and was having extremely gay sex at the time. >:D

"It will be fire next time."

So you worship Odin? It's Fenrir who will consume the world with fire, as part of Ragnarok. [/smartarse]

I don't get how anyone could love a monstrous deity that would try to kill almost the entire world first with a flood, and later with fire. Remember, God kills people because he loves them!

10/6/2011 8:01:02 AM


Holy crap, that's even worse than before! Last time, it was a psycho who came around every day promising never to kill you. Now it's more like the same psycho promising never to kill you by strangulation, but instead it'll be by meat cleaver and I'll be watching you like a hawk!

Are you trying to tell God how to run the universe again?

Isn't that what prayer is all about?

As soon as the local wino starts building a giant asbestos zoo I'll start worrying. till then...meh

10/6/2011 8:30:57 AM


I think you need to find another god. This one's a prick.

10/6/2011 9:25:38 AM


Because as everyone knows, rain and rainbows didn't exist until after the flood. God changed the laws of physics when that happened.
Fuck, fundies are retarded.

10/6/2011 9:34:08 AM


Anon-e-Moose: You're getting Fenrir mixed up with Surtr...

Velma: Think more in terms of, tactic other than mass death. Is unrighteousness necessarily irreversible? I see no reason to believe that's always the case.

10/6/2011 10:17:20 AM


[b]Your God being omnipotent should have been able to use whatever means he wanted including the peaceful conversion of a humans to whatever view he wanted them to have.

Your God being omniscient should have known from the beginning what the result of his creating humans would be.

But your idea of your God is that he got mad because people failed him and killed almost everything with a world-wide flood. What a lame, a**holy god you claim to have.

Dear Velma,

Let's have a look at the early days of civilized man, shall we?

In those days, men and women were fairly ignorant and superstitious, and kind of smelly because they didn't know about things like germs, Jacuzzis, Pasteurization, or tooth paste. They knew how some things worked, but lots of people hid their knowledge so it would look like being able to tell time or build a building that didn't fall down was BIG MAGIC to the ordinary folk.

Today, we know about things like electricity, food poisoning, hallucinogens, and sun screen. Don't you think there are better sources of information than a book written by people who would kill a woman for menstruating in public?

Or are you just another idiot?
