UGH, WHY CAN’T I JUST LEAVE IT ALONE?

I get on here to browse my reader and almost every time there is a post like this mixed in among my followed blogs, that inevitably grabs my attention.

This was my reply:

“That is the biggest pile of bovine excretement I have seen in a long time.

I see a lot of x + y = z, but nothing to back it up whatsoever. (an atheist) {x} (is content to say โ€œevolution did itโ€) {+ y} {=} (and cease exploratory research) {z}

Just because you imagine something to be true, does not make it so. The entire post is an excercise in make believe. “I believe this is how it is so it must be true.” Unfortunately that doesn’t cut it with an atheist. We prefer to actually have facts and data in our hands to form an opinion.

Stick to religion pal. Atheism requires more work than just making shit up and claiming it to be so. You want to play with an atheist? Show your damn work.

Religion is the playground of “I believe.” So maybe you ought to stay in your sandbox and let the atheist ponder the facts… Unless of course you actually have some facts to show that your speculative strawmen are real? I’ll wait.” (end quote)

I kind of doubt my response will see the light of day. I can’t be sure but I think I have run into this guy before…

I’m off to the river. There be adventure out thar and I aim to find it. Y’all have a good day too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Good for you for trying! But, like you, I doubt if the reply will see the light of day – it makes too much sense!

  2. I, too, doubt your response will show up. What a crock of gunk that guy’s post is. “I believe this is true, so it is.” I’m an atheist not because I know for a fact a god or gods do NOT exist. I’m an atheist because I see absolutely no evidence that such things DO exist. None. Zilch. Nada. I’m open to be convinced such things do exist, but crap like this guy wrote does not in any way convince me of anything other than this arrogant ass believes his own personal beliefs are, indeed, undeniable facts. They are not. They’re tripe, just like his post.

    • I concur with that assessment. Damn! There’s a lot of S’s in that word… I’m tired, just got back from the river, it did not go well, but I had my adventure. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. The worst way to test your ideas is to write a post and then filter comments. Why most Christians do this is evidence they have no evidence. If you start to defend your hunches, that actually takes a lot of work. And why work when you already know the answers?

    • Precisely. They know all the answers, without question. And the people who are prone to reading crap like that are already programmed to accept a load of crap like that without question.

  4. Egad, what list are you on that you would receive such bilge? And this from people who are actively proselytized to not question their faith. Even the act of asking for evidence for the existence of their god or miracles, etc. is a failure in their eyes. Faith is something that needs no evidence, so if you ask for it, you have really missed the point.

    Now that is compatible with science, right? Right?

    Their faith is not compatible with democracy, either. So, how are we to rule ourselves when we are planet bound? A divinely appointed king is an option, although Yahweh resisted that when the Israelites begged for a king to rule them. Apparently priests are more fit to rule in Yahweh’s thinking.

    The unlearned gentleman’s logic is quiet flawed in any case, but I suspect that that bilge earns him major credits in the world of apologizers.

    • Oh I’m sure he gets a lot of backslaps and “amen brother’s” wherever he hangs out. But when anyone with a smidge of reasonable thought processes reads something like that, it is shot with more holes than swiss cheese.

  5. Christianity is the epitome of physics. When you peel back all the layers thereโ€™s nothing there.

    • Ha! It is amazing how much something there is in our nothing.

      I don’t know if you have seen Quark Science, it’s been out for a while, but that series does a great job explaining, AND showing how the science works.

  6. I didn’t read the entire post … the first few “points” were enough. Any more than that and I would have probably started throwing up.

    It’s amazing how far some people will go to discount those who don’t “believe.”

    BTW, when I visited, I noticed he hadn’t posted your comment. Surprise!

  7. Shell!!!! What in tha world were you thinking!!!??? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Are you coming down with something!? ๐Ÿค’๐Ÿ˜ท Have you contracted Ark-a-nitus!? The virus (or addiction) of hunting down and flushing out Chrisspyians with your Elmer Fudd shotgun hunting Chrisspyian Wabbits? That’s what Arkesatan used to have ya know. Be wery wery careful when you go hunting those kinda wabbits. They are hopping EVERYWHERE, they even leap about from the tops of trees! And they have sharp ferocious dentures too!!!

      First I didn’t go looking, crap like that shows up in my reader all the time. And then I just have to go have a look. So far I have been disappointed 99% of the time I have done that.

      If I apparently have a case of Ark-an-itis where does one go to have that looked at? I don’t seem to have a fever.

      Monty Python was the bomb before the bomb was a thing.
