Shut up Ray. You ignorant bible thumping douche bag. You and your farkin banana are wrong yet again. I Don't follow your invisible sky wizard and would never do any of what you claim atheism causes. Go fark yourself. Religion in general has caused more violence in this world than I care to list. very few militant atheists out there willing to kill to get their point across unlike Christianity or most other religions.

So what I took from that is the only thing keeping Ray Comfort from going on a child-murdering rampage is that he's afraid of divine retribution.

"You talk about the fear of god and you're called a bible-bashing bigot..."

Freudian slip?

That was as far as I got.

So your quoting a self proclaimed christian to prove what exactly?

here is the beginning of that statement.". And I've since come to believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the true Creator of the heavens and the earth, that it didn't just happen. I've accepted him as my Lord and Savior, and I believe that I, as well as everyone else will be accountable to him. . . . If a person doesn't think there is a God to be accountable to, then what's the point in trying to modify your behavior to keep it in acceptable ranges?"

Dahmer's quote supports the argument being made in the video.  Jeffrey Dahmer was a mass murderer, so you're hearing it from the horse's mouth. He attributed his killing spree to the fact that he was taught to believe in Darwinism and that life was meaningless.  Here's the full quote:

"Because I always believed the lie that evolution is truth, the theory of evolution is truth, that we all just came from the slime, and when we died, you know, that was it, there was nothing-so the whole theory cheapens life. I started reading books that show how evolution is just a complete lie. There's no basis in science to uphold it. And I've since come to believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the true Creator of the heavens and the earth, that it didn't just happen. I've accepted him as my Lord and Savior, and I believe that I, as well as everyone else will be accountable to him. . . . If a person doesn't think there is a God to be accountable to, then what's the point in trying to modify your behavior to keep it in acceptable ranges?"
 
2013-01-18 07:49:48 PM
When talking about Dahmer I like to think about his mental state." A psychopath doesn't experience moral convictions. He doesn't understand other people's moral convictions, or how or why they have them. The best he can do is manipulate them." Kinda semi borrowed from the same site I got the quote from. the quote proves nothing other than he could say what ever he thought might get the reaction he wanted at that time.

A popular creationist who hangs around with Kirk Cameron... Both of which spout some of the stupidest ideas about biology you have ever heard.

From the video. "Someone who fears God, doesn't go out and commit adultery, they don't lie, they don't steal, and they definitely don't go around killing people."

Really Ray? Really? You can say that with a straight face.

Go masturbate a banana.

Only you would quote Jeffrey Dahmer to support your argument. Whatever that is, I don't know exactly.

I still think it's a shame that Ray Comfort wasn't there to share in the bounty of $5 footlongs for Kirk Cameron's birthday party. That picture might not have been quite so sad.

Go suck an artifically selected banana Ray.

I use Red for gun nuts or FOX viewers, Green for smart or funny people, Purple for jerks.  I reserve the more saturated shades for the more intense cases.

Hmmmm...I'm going to borrow this system. I had already used green for awesome Farkers; but your system is an improvement.

Same here with the shade intensity. I usually start off low and ratchet it up as the number as needed. Though I use red for political trolls, grey for general assholes, blue for smart, orange for funny. Green is reserved for my fellow Portland Farkers.
 
2013-01-19 01:21:50 AM
I find it funny all the different ways we categorize the people on fark. I tend to put trolls of all stripes in grey shade dependent on intensity of derp spewed. Religious nuts, astrology believers and antivaxxers get to be a shade of red also depending on derp levels. friends and people I like reading get to be blue or green. mostly the same lighter shades.

Some people are wired to behave and be good people. Some of those people are atheists, perhaps agnostic and some of course are religious. Then you have those people who have no control over themselves whatsoever, they're usually hardcore fundamentalists with skeletons in their closets.

unitednihilists: From the video. "Someone who fears God, doesn't go out and commit adultery,"


Which is the reason why atheists have far more divorces than Christians. Oh, wait (scroll down to "Variation in divorce rates by religion".

"they don't lie,"

Ray Comfort's most famous video insinuated that the banana was created by God for man, when any moron knows that the banana as we know it today was specifically cultivated from a seedy, unappetizing thing. He says he was mistaken, but his second most famous video touts him writing a foreword to Darwin's Origin of Species asserting that Hitler was a "Darwinist". No matter what religion Hitler believed, he was most definitely not a follower of Darwinian evolution. At most, he used Lamarckism to further his eugenics rationales, like many authoritarians did (none of them used Darwin's hypotheses because they're actually antithetical to the belief of a supreme race). In fact, Hitler actually used many arguments against evolution, including the "kind" argument (as in, a cat always gives birth to a cat, never a dog). Both Comfort and Ben Stein likely knew about these writings, so, yes, they have broken the 9th commandment.

"they don't steal,"

Yes, they do. 10% of their faithful's money. Then they claim God gave them their Maserati for being faithful.

"and they definitely don't go around killing people."

Uganda, a very Christian nation, is attempting to pass a law that would make being a homosexual punishable by death. Several American pastors have been called out for supporting said bill, including Rick Warren (who President Obama shamefully chose to give his benediction at his first inauguration) and Scott Lively (who is currently facing a lawsuit brought by a Ghanaian gay rights group for his actions in crafting the law. It's actually being tried in American federal court under the Alien Tort Statute, which allows non-citizens to sue American citizens in American court for conduct in another country that might be considered a human rights abuse by international law or treaties signed by the US.)

For more direct killing, see Jim David Adkisson, who shot up a church because it was "too liberal".

The only people who really believe this are sociopaths. Somehow a great number of us do not need the threat of a god to keep our behavior in acceptable ranges.

Im reading Hitchen's final book "Mortality" these days. The vibes I get are the same I got from watching countless debates with him on youtube. He may be a contrarian. Yes. But everything he states is saturated in common sense.
From only watching about 45 seconds of the OP video the vibes I got were everything but those of common sense. Drivel and nonsense.

It can also go the other way. Cult leaders, who believe that they are touched by God, feel free to abuse their disciples in any way the see fit. They fear no retribution since they believe they are special in God's eyes.

So you're comparing a clinically insane sociopath who, for lack of better words, DISMEMBERED PEOPLE AND ATE THEM, to Atheists and insisting that anyone who doesn't believe in a God is one step away from doing the same?
