Actually, they said that the fastest growing group is the religiously "unaffiliated," over half of whom still attend church and/or consider themselves "spiritual" and would certainly not label themselves as atheists. Although since there is no group easier to troll than online atheists, your headline will work just fine, subby.

I May Be Crazy But...: I drunk what: Leeds: In case you haven't noticed, you can't erase posts once you've posted them. So your idiocy is there for all to see and mock.

Out of curiosity, what do you mean by those cards? I went to the Watson Selection Task page on wikipedia, but I'm still lost about the meaning here.


That's an image that signifies the drunk one's inability to grasp logic. For some reason, he's proud of the fact that he failed that test and for completely inexplicable reasons he drags it out to showcase his shame.

Here's the original thread link.

All the rest copied directly from that link:

Q: If I tell you that the rule is all cards with an even number on them have to have red backs, which two cards do you flip over to check if this is true?
IDW's Answer: is the fourth card orange?
IDW's Second Answer: i got tired of waiting so now I have to ASSUME the 4th card is red (though it appears orange on my computer). My answer is : the first two cards "3" "8"
Patient Response #1: Err, no, the third card is red, the fourth brown. Are you perchance red green deficient? I'll give you time to think about it again.
IDW's Second Answer: then I'm stuck because I need to flip 3 8 and brown
Patient Response #2: Well, then the situation is worse than I thought. I'll restate the question, in writing. You have four cards on a table. One shows a '3', another an '8', another is red, the last is brown. You are told that the rule is that all cards with an even number on one side must be red on the other side. Which two cards do you flip to determine if the rule has been violated?
IDW's Third Answer: ok let me try to restate in writing. I would choose-flip the first card (which shows a '3') and the second card (which shows an '8'). was this the way you wanted me to answer [in writing]
IDW starting to lose it: I'm stuck because I need to flip 3 8 and brown. But then he said only 2 so, I think it's a trap!

It goes on and on and on and on and on and on. IDW still doesn't understand that test or why he keeps failing it. And that was February of 2009.

THIS is why that idiot is on everyone's ignore list. Even when you show him the error in his ways, even when you educate him about where the problem lies, he still doesn't get it. And then to make matters worse, instead of being embarrassed by his inability to understand basic logic he chooses instead to post that picture all over the place as some sort of badge of honor. He's actually proud of being a card-carrying moron.

Nuclear Monk: meat0918: had98c: Inflatable Rhetoric: SquiggsIN: On atheism, Sagan commented in 1981:

"An atheist is someone who is certain that God does not exist, someone who has compelling evidence against the existence of God. I know of no such compelling evidence. Because God can be relegated to remote times and places and to ultimate causes, we would have to know a great deal more about the universe than we do now to be sure that no such God exists. To be certain of the existence of God and to be certain of the nonexistence of God seem to me to be the confident extremes in a subject so riddled with doubt and uncertainty as to inspire very little confidence indeed".

The same is true for the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and Santa.

Hey, at least we can see the Easter Bunny and Santa. So we know they exist. They're at the mall every spring and every December, respectively. Go look for yourself.

You know what!

People may be falling out with religion, and they may even claim that they are atheists, but that still doesn't stop them from believing in complete nonsense.

The human predilection for being a special and unique property of the the Universe is as strong as ever. It's just been shifted from organized religion to spirituality -- everything from energy auras and chakras to ley lines and feng shui, ESP and psychics, homeopathy, paranormal existences, belief in ghosts/vampires/werewolves/angels, reincarnation, tai chi/yoga/meditation/mindfulness/Buddhism, astrology, miracles/premonition/prophecy, indigo children, the Mayan calendar, the coming Age of Aquarius and anything that reeks of "New Age" (which includes everything from the Celestine Prophecy to What the Bleep Do We Know).

Sure, religion is declining. But supernaturalism is as strong as ever. I blame education.

F'n atheists! I remember that time when atheists tried to deny contraception to women. Or enforce decency laws to take away our pr0n. And remember all of those godless folks who made their counties "dry" because beer is the Devil's brew. Then they made praying to Charles Darwin mandatory in schools! And don't forget how atheists use their religion to subjugate others, such as non-whites, women, and teh gays. The sheer audacity of it all!

Oh wait. None of that ever happened. It was superstitious fuqtards and Theocrats that did all of that.

Spanky_McFarksalot: "The fastest growing "religious" group in America is made up of people with no religion at all..."

Not having a religion does not equal atheist, no matter how much atheists say it does.


Actually, I know of few - if any - atheists who would say that. Atheism is the lack of belief in God(s). Not the lack of religion. You can be religious and be an atheist. You can be non-religious and be a theist. Or you can be a pumpkin.

Buttknuckle: I have come to realize something in the past couple years...

Atheists who look down upon others for their religious beliefs are arrogant. You cannot win an argument with an Atheist, because it is about logic. Religion is about BELIEF. There is so much we don't know out there and to assume that we as humans are "it" is arrogant as hell, IMHO. But it really bothers me when Atheists look down on those who get happiness and serenity in their lives with religion. Of course, this is contingent on the fact that they are not religious nutjobs trying to convert everyone in their path.


See, now that's your "traditional" atheism troll. Straightforward and kind of obvious... not like subby... not like subby at all...

vpb: I don't know. Many people who attend church only go to keep their friends and family happy.


My aunt and uncle both attended Catholic services for nearly thirty years, both assuming the other one was happy with the church and not wanting to displease the other. One day the priest said something that was particularly egregious and my aunt asked my uncle, "Do you really believe in any of this nonsense?". Uncle agreed the Catholic Church and their contradictory and nonsensical doctrines had no place in their lives.

I feel sorry for atheists; they don't get to use holy days as an excuse to get off of work. The benefit of being well informed seems somewhat less beside 10 extra days off a year.
