I can see it, I'd get sick of some dude asking "PWN3D! N00B! WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?!"

In a perfect world, someone would have yelled out "where's your god now" right after the sentencing.

You mean like when I succeed at something and Christians tell me I should thank god?  Or when some disaster happens and Christians claim it was god's wrath over people they don't like?  That annoying?

Yeah - it's annoying.  But not a capital offense.

Drinking and religious "debate."  Two great tastes that go great together.

FTA: "According to Park, things escalated when Yim became enraged and grabbed his gun after Phan asked Yim where God was when Yim's father died of a stroke several years earlier."

Not saying that Phan deserved to die, but it's usually a stupid move to tease someone about their deceased parent.

No, he shot his "friend" for being an asshole.

Actually, I've always thought one of the frustrating things about being an atheist would be the knowledge that you'd never find out if you were right or not.  (Or to be a little more precise, I'm talking about the idea that there is no afterlife whatsoever, which technically isn't the same thing as atheism.)  I mean, if you were wrong, sure, you'll discover that after you die, presumably to your sorrow.  But if you're right, you'll cease to exist the moment you die, so there won't be a "you" around anymore to say, "Yep, I was right: there's nothing."

I don't know what that bothers me so much, but it does.

Yim killed Phan after a night of partying with alcohol and cocaine, playing video games, and arguing about the existence or nonexistence of God,

What were their Fark handles?

I have to agree. Studies show that assholes get shot.

Park said that Phan was teasing Yim about his belief in God, asking Yim where God was every time Yim lost the video game.

He has a point, you know.
If there was a god, he would have helped that guy win his video game.

Because deep down you really want to be able to say "I told you so."

After being sentenced Yim was heard yelling, "I prayed to God and he answered my prayers, only 126 years in prison instead of a life sentence.  Proof that God exists."

That's why this armed atheist doesn't engage in debate with fervent Christians. Oh, I'll casually converse, but I won't delve into a "is there a god" debate, but I'll drop items to cause doubt. The people who want to debate in favor of there being a god won't actually change their position through debate. And vice versa.

There's even this strain of Christian that gets gratification from arguing in favor of their beliefs, almost sexual in nature. I won't jack off a Christian.

Boredom. Plus, I have seen some compelling arguments that made me change my stance in the past. There is indeed some wheat in this here chaff.

I was once hanging out with a group and someone mentioned that I was an atheist.  A drunk theist there asked me why and I told him my reason.  He made a brief show of tolerating my answer and then slowly started to burn, getting madder and madder.  A lot of 'who the f are you...f you...I don't have to take this shiat'...until he finally stormed out.  Now I'm glad I didn't get shot.

I'm torn about this story. On the one hand that dude does need to be tried for murder, but on the other hand the friend sounds like every griefer I ever met in an online game. The only way I can play online nowadays is to turn off voice chat and sometimes hide the chat window.

What was your reason, out of curiosity?

The atheist was beating him into the ground. Metaphorically. He shot him down. Literally.

Um, where did it say he was a Christian at all?  Or did you just use this as a way to disparage a Christians?

Of course, there IS the possibility that there's an afterlife but it is nothing like Christians imagine and has no punishment. Then the athiest might get both the satisfaction of still existing and as well as the opportunity to chide the Christians he knew in life for their flawed beliefs.

That's where I'm putting my money.
