KiltedBastich: I guess I`m too humble? ;p

That must be it, you theistic cow.

KiltedBastich: All of us here believe in the critical method.

Aside from weirdos who are more interested in defining "method" before getting to "critical" and "believe".

cthellis: I'm not. Also, I would be absolutely perfect if I weren't so damn humble.

"My dear Watson," said he, "I cannot agree with those who rank modesty among the virtues. To the logician all things should be seen exactly as they are, and to underestimate one's self is as much a departure from truth as to exaggerate one's own powers. When I say, therefore, that Mycroft has better powers of observation than I, you may take it that I am speaking the exact and literal truth."

You still believe in it. You`re just also interested in defining precisely why you believe in it.

kerpal32: authenticryan: Its not semantics. There are atheists with varying political views. That's absolutely true. And yes, I know there are various religions, and don't dispute that. In fact, I'm grateful you brought that up.

yea, and? does it negate any acts by atheists with strong political views?


Assuming that your point is that all Atheism leads to communism, then you are aren't making any sense at all. Christopher Hitchens is an atheist with strong political views, and he isn't in favor of any totalitariansim, communist or facist. So what do you mean by "acts by atheists with strong political views?" Your initial post suggested that Atheism leads to violently imposed communism, or is otherwise engendered by it. I'm calling on you to qualify that supposition or clarify if that wasn't it.


or does it accept that there are varying degrees of "Christians" with differing interpretations of religion, spirituality or faith?

Yes they vary. I already acknowledged that. And I told you why I thought that was interesting, since all the current monotheisms exist on the supposition that only they and they alone are correct about the nature of the universe and the laws that guide it.

The initial strawman was yours. And it's a weak ass semantic game more closed minded atheists love to play to generalize anti-Christian sentiments and appeals to emotion.

You made an assertion about the relationship between Atheism and a particular political view and I called you on it.

/just stop it

Nope. Call me closed minded.

/And yet I have so many questions...

Deuce McStinkle: quisph: Others would like to throw out the Constitution and replace it with Mosaic law.

My God. What a bad idea. Who in the world would want to do such a thing. Not me, and not any Christian I know.


Theonomists, Dominionists, and Reconstructionists, all to some degree would base their "ideal" government on the laws of the Old Testament. (Or at least the laws they like.)

So... I am perfect? Hot damn!

Ours is not to reason why. Ours is but to do or find every possible gap to stick God in before we die.

Zamboro: jekxrb: "/that DOES look like an interesting variation on the automated litter pans.... Maybe one day when I have money. And a job. When I'm not a grad student anymore. One day..."

I'm mainly just a robot nut. Do you know what I did just now? I picked up a remote, pressed "max", and my roomba began beeping like a car in reverse as it pulled away from its docking station. I got in the shower, and by the time I got out, not only was my carpet spotless, but the roomba was charging happily at its docking station. I didn't put it there. I didn't have to do anything but press a button and then forget about it. It cleaned while I showered, then set about recharging its own goddamn self.

I may seem overly impressed by this sort of thing, but it's because I pay obsessively close attention to news of technological progress. I've noticed many tend to take one look at a new technology, see that it isn't ready for primetime, and dismiss it as a terrible idea. Then in the following years, the technology matures, becomes reliable and polished, then reemerges onto the market and finds explosive success. To those who initially dismissed it, it seems to come out of the blue. But I was right there, following every developmental milestone with glee, so I'm better able to appreciate how incredibly difficult it was to produce something as seemingly simple as a robotic vacuum that docks and charges itself.

I'm that guy who goes to the ASIMO show in Disney's tomorrowland, then when Asimo runs across the stage I flip out, yelling "It's farking running, everyone! A bipedal, dynamically stabilized robot is running right before our farking eyes, altering its path in realtime, and you're just sitting there yawning like it's professional golf or some shiat! Get up and clap right farking now or I swear I will end you!"


I bought a roomba about 2 weeks ago and all I have to say is EPIC TECHNOLOGY.

Zamboro: There's nothing wrong with being intolerant of religion. It's not an inborn trait like race or gender or sexuality,

Sorry, I just have to laugh when anybody says that sexuality is an inborn trait. Yeah, and I'm sure all those big, burly men in prison really are life-long homosexuals. Must be; sexuality can't possibly change with circumstances if it's inborn.

A denigrating homosexual act used to create a situation of power is not the same thing as being naturally attracted to those of the same sex.

But congratulations on letting us know you're dumb, good think to be aware of.

KiltedBastich: Deuce McStinkle: Zamboro: Deuce

Well, what you demonstrated, more than anything else, is that your mind is already made up. There's no need to debate with you. You're clearly a scientific materialist who thinks that one can measure anything.

Rude? Yes, because you insult my beliefs with little to no reason to do so.

I didn't insult your belief system because you have no belief system.

And the standard religious intolerance of other perspectives is here underlined. Need I remind you of an earlier post, o forgetful fool?




So atheism is a belief system?

guyinjeep16:

If your beliefs can be insulted, you might want to find out why you have such a low opinion of said beliefs. Otherwise you are just saying hey stop being mean to me, I cant defend myself!


Fail. Try again.

That doesn't seem to be a real defense of your position. Would you care to elaborate your evidence for us? I'm sure we'd be delighted to hear it.

Are you a Troll or a retard? Someone posts 11 paragraphs about what they believe in, none of which mention atheism, and that's how you respond?

Mega-fail, dude.

Intolerance from christains???


YOU are either Catholi or Pagani

either a Catholic or a Bumpkin(translation of latin term)

So go to confession damn you

Meh... I'm tolerant of most christians until they feel the need to remind me that my existence offends them and their god, and that they're going to change the laws to disadvantage my way of life.

If christians were more tolerant of well, anyone else, we'd all probably be much happier.

Did you just get fired from your job because you are a Christian? Thrown into jail because you are a christian? Been driven from your home because you are a Christian?
I would like to hear how you have been horribly persecuted.

Check out these two videos, Part 1 (^) and Part 2 (^), then come back and tell everyone who is being persecuted and who the persecutors are...

For extra credit, check out who she gets to talk about this topic in part 2....

Bones3D_mac: "Meh... I'm tolerant of most christians until they feel the need to remind me that my existence offends them and their god, and that they're going to change the laws to disadvantage my way of life."

Their preferred tactic is to accuse people who point this out of being bigoted towards Christians. And, if you happen to be an atheist, congratulations because criticizing them for things they have factually done and are guilty of makes you a militant atheist, identical in their eyes to the 9/11 hijackers.

It's as if they expect the church to be able to get away with literally anything, and when you point it out, they treat you as if you just made it up to smear their faith or something. Any time an otherwise reasonable person does something horribly unreasonable because it's what he or she believed logically followed from his or her religious beliefs and it makes it on here (every other day or so, not counting the stories where it's just an insane methhead or something) it's farking impossible to get a religious farker to acknowledge that their beliefs had any role it in whatsoever. They'll blame politics, greed, racism, literally anything but religion.

It's like a helicopter mother at a parent/teacher meeting, becoming loud and defensive when others try to tell her that her kid is a bully. "Not my angel, that's impossible!"
