Quote# 86688

Christians believe the following:

-God exists
-Everyone knows that God exists
-The unbeliever suppresses that God exists because he prefers sin
-The unbeliever makes up reasons to justify his unbelief, implicitly or explicitly
-These excuses seem perfectly fine until God reveals himself to the person individually
-This revelation is present to us in the Bible

Christians cannot hate atheists. They cannot marginalize them either. Every Christian knows that he himself was a God-hater, in subtle or not-so-subtle ways, before God saved him.

The Christian is grateful to God for saving him and hopes for God to save the atheist as he hopes for God to save everyone believing in false gods.

Atheists put up reason as their strong face in opposing the Christian norm. But is atheism reasonable? The secularization of America has provided a seed-bed for a God-less world as the basis for life today.

Yet, even the atheists must borrow a Christian worldview in order to think and act rationally. Atheism has no way to ground reason. If we came about by chance, our reason and thinking is a random product of chance, with no strong foundation for thought.

Christians cannot hate atheists. They cannot marginalize them either.

Someone needs to tell that to the Christians.

Since I always strive to think and act rationally, where can I borrow this Christian worldview? And why would I want to grind reason? Do I need special equipment?

Bible God gawps like a stunned bunny in the brilliance of Lord Athe's shining reason.

To act rationally we must borrow a worldview that believes in some dude who was his own father and came alive again after being dead for two days. Are you nuts?

"Atheism has no way to ground reason"

Because it is absolutely reasonable to believe in an invisible man in the clouds who created the earth (possibly the whole universe) in 7 days!

What do your ten commandments say about bearing false witness? You're not following your religion very well.

The Christian worldview has been a total failure for 2,000 years.

Every Christian knows that he himself was a God-hater, in subtle or not-so-subtle ways, before God saved him.

There are so many of these fundie "ex-God haters" and "I used to be an atheist"s - now it appears that it's every damned one of them.
But I'm worried. Since I'm still in my "God-hater" mode - the implication being that at some point this God fella will expose himself to me (the pervert), perhaps on my deathbed, and I will cop to The Wager, no doubt upon bowed knee.
I can only hope to beat him to the punch and kick off before he gets to me. The fucker might be after my soul, and I aim to save my soul. He is pretty damned slow, and we know about his aim, I think I can whup him.
Rather I commend my self to Darwin or Satan or who/whatever. At least to the worms.

Rattman believes the following:

-GlaDOS is corrupt
-Everyone knows that GlaDOS is corrupt
-The Apature Scientist supresses that GlaDOS is corrupt because he prefers to test
-The Apature Scientist adds extra cores to GlaDOS to justify his unbelief, implicitly or explicitly
-These modifications seem perfectly fine until GlaDOS reveals herself to the Apature Scientist with Deadly Neurotoxin
-This revelation is present to us in delusional scrawlings on the walls

Dear Pradeep Talik,

Your religion is not the only one. Your god is not the only one. Your sacred mythology is not the only one.

Case closed.

When will these jerks stop fantasizing that All Atheists hate God. THe bottom line is the vast majority don't think s/he exists and therefore there is nothing to hate or love or particularily get upsetabout in the whole God concept.

The saved bullcrap from the baptists always astounds and confounds me me. It's like they're actually admitting everyone is born an atheist and have to be tricked into being a Christian later.

"-Everyone knows that God exists"

One of the worst mindsets of fundyism. This concept of inherent knowledge, a fact so strong and obvious it must be followed by enforced indoctrination to teach them what they already know? That's a huge level of hypocracy.

They know this isn't true because they invest so much into witnessing and and demanding church support. That statement is a weapon to use against unbelievers, to demonize them. His next two points revealing that attack.
"-The unbeliever suppresses that God exists because he prefers sin
-The unbeliever makes up reasons to justify his unbelief, implicitly or explicitly"

Just not believing leaves room for doubt due to lack of evidence, an understandable disbelief. They want you to believe non-believe is purposely dishonest, so they can promote hate and distrust.

George Carlin was right, religion is the biggest producer of bullshit in history.
