Quote# 86015

The lack of cheering by atheists for the upset victory by the Giants in the Super Bowl -- overcoming preseason odds of 25-1 against them -- begs the question: Mystery:Why Do Atheists Dislike Underdogs?

No ArschFleisch, it doesn't.

Also, begging the question is a logical fallacy.

But you'd know all about making logical fallacies, wouldn't you?

Dude, pulling that one out of your ass must have *hurt*. o.o

So...you think that all atheists are New England Patriots fans now?

I'm sure that this comment makes perfect, logical sense to you. You're amazing, you really are. And no, I don't mean that in a complimentary, nice way.

I cheered for the Giants. Not because they were the underdogs, though. I just found it amusing that the game-winning touchdown was scored by accident. I only watch the Super Bowl because the commercials are entertaining, and because it's an excuse to eat pizza and Cheez-Its in front of the TV.

25-1 odds to win the Super Bowl is hardly outlandish in pro football.

The Giants were actually favored going in to the Super Bowl by most media outlets because their offense created matchup problems for the Patriots defense and their defensive line was playing as well as had been seen all year. Also the circumstances surrounding the end of the regular season and playoffs were similar to the 2007/2008 playoffs where the Giants pulled a huge upset victory off against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII

So really, atheists pulling for New England were rooting for an underdog Conservapedia continues to exist in a ridiculous alternate dimension.

Are we atheists suppose to wear some sort of special t-shirt or hat or something and I was unaware of it?

Or does Andy have some sort of special atheist radar? Otherwise, how the fuck is he suppose to pick us out of a stadium crowd and notice our supposed lack of cheering?

I rooted for the Giants because I hate the Patriots. My two favorite teams are the Dolphins and Bengals. Wanna discuss underdogs?

What, the Giants are God's Own Team, now?

2/12/2012 6:33:44 AM

What? I love the giants? This doesn't make any sense Andy what the fuck are you talking about?

2/12/2012 6:39:24 AM


Andy clearly doesn't know what 'begging the question' (the logical fallacy petitio principii) is.

Hint: it is not the same as 'raising the question'.

Given that most fundies in the U.S. consider themselves "patriots" and that non-Christians are "the big bad meanies", you'd think that they'd ONLY support the Patriots, and the rest of us would ONLY support the Giants. I think the Saints had worse odds when they played than the Giants did. But alas, it's Assfly from Conservapedia, so spewing irrelevant, meaningless nonsense is expected.

EDIT: I live in St. Louis, where most of us believe we were cheated out of 2001's Super Bowl. Here, *no one* I know supports the Patriots

I'm an Atheist I was cheering all night for that smug look to be wiped of Brady and his mob's faces, I guess that means I don't exist...

(additionally I've been a Lions fan since about 2006, and am a little upset that they're doing so well now...)

It's like he's not even trying to make a logical point anymore.

Oh that superbowl thing...
I support native justice, and native self rule, against colonial masters.
You dont get a more underdog situation than that.

2/12/2012 7:27:53 AM


I do root for underdogs, but not in the sport that you consider important enough to launch on another dull rant. Also, fuck Sebastian Loeb.

I dislike watching all sports, so I guess by extension I do dislike the Giants. It has nothing to do with the nonexistence of God.

2/12/2012 8:00:26 AM


Andy, please, get some help. See someone. Seriously. You're not well.

2/12/2012 8:09:19 AM


And you know the religious position of those cheering? Really?

2/12/2012 8:43:59 AM



I've noticed too. I think he might be legitimitely insane.

2/12/2012 8:47:22 AM


Atheist or not, why am I supposed to give a shit who wins the Super Bowl? If the winners were indeed the underdogs, good luck to them. Either way, I couldn't care less and it has nothing at all to do with not believing in god/s.

2/12/2012 8:53:22 AM


Andy has officially ran out of things to blather about.

2/12/2012 8:56:22 AM


They remind us of you, Andy. Despite your brain damage, you soldier on in an uphill battle against reality and reason.

2/12/2012 9:03:04 AM

Well, maybe because it's a trivial matter. Just maybe.

2/12/2012 9:19:05 AM


Bill Maher already covered this in his tweet about how Jesus fucked over Tebow. There's really nothing more to add.

Providing that Andy's statement is true...

Wait this is Andy I'm talking about.
