(The Raw Story)   Oprah tells atheist swimmer that she can't believe in "awe" and "wonder". And the atheist's response is just as stupid. Popcorn, anyone?   (rawstory.com ) divider line

Babbs: What's the difference between God and Oprah?
God doesn't believe he's Oprah.


Oprah has slightly more money?

swaniefrmreddeer: Curiosity is the greatest human trait, without it we would still be living in caves.


Humans rarely ever lived in caves. Basic curiosity would have led you to that fact.

cman: Christ there are a lot of Oprah bashers in this thread

What did she ever do to you? Did she spit on your hamburger?


No, but I saw her spit on yours. Then she dried it off. With her wrinkled, prunish, crusty ladybits.

Dr. Whoof: Is it me or is Oprah in the pic in the article beginning to look like Oghra from the Dark Crystal?

Maybe...but I prefer the salt creature from Star Trek.

impaler: I have redefined "god" to mean "tacos," so anyone that believes in tacos is not an atheist.

I believe in god, and he is delicious.


I'm for anything that makes Shawn Johnston's taco pop.

You know, if there is really a god and then god decides to appear to all of mankind/alienkind, how do you think people would respond? How do you even know that the thing that appeared is actually god, and not just some kind of more advanced creature that wanted to play around with primitive creatures like us?
 
2013-10-14 04:37:00 PM  
Excellent point, subby.

"So to me, my definition of God is humanity and is the love of humanity."

OMG, SO STUPID, right?

Equally as stupid as expanding the definition of "God" so you can tell someone she's not really an atheist.

Earguy: I love it when Oprah acts like she's got it all figured out.


I've only seen bits and pieces of Oprahs show.  One of the more poignant times was Oprah was stating how she changes her sheets every single day (more than like, HAS them changed FOR her), and seemed amazed that the crowd responded that no, they don't change their sheets every day.  She actually asked an audience member why, and the response was something like "I am not a millionaire".


She's got it all figured out all right, let them eat cake, apparently.

As old Buddhist saying of: shiat happens. Get used to it.

Well at least the swimmer didn't call out Oprah on how her fellow 'Christians' keep murdering the people of the Middle East. Because that would of been awe-some and wonder-full.

Well I've had Farkers yell at me saying you can't believe in the supernatural and be an atheist too.


As an atheist and a scientist, let me assure you that a person absolutely can be an atheist and believe in the supernatural.

Atheism va theism is a question of one's belief in a deity or deities.  We don't really have word choices for those who do/don't believe in the non-deity supernatural things.  "Skeptic," maybe, but that word can be used for a lot of other things besides just the supernatural (e.g. conspiracies, aliens among us, etc...)

Oprah has a problem with atheists because she has a messiah complex.

Video's not working for me, so I don't know how it sounds, but "the definition of life is, we will never know" at least looks to be at a "farking magnets" level of intellectual sophistication.

Dear everyone: Oprah's show is for people who are at home during the day. By definition, if you have some kind of brain, you are not at home during the day, you're at work. So, her show is for morons.

Interpret everything on that show under this light, please.

Ideologically identical to authoritarian followers except that they have more money.

Unless they don't.

===============================================

She's a christian. I've never met a single one that wasn't a judgemental idiot. Especially of atheists.

'How could you <insert stupid crap here> if you're an atheist? I certainly couldn't'.

Me: 'I'm not you, douchebag!'

That has always been superbly annoying.

"If you're an atheist, what keeps you from killing someone?"

I'm not a farking sociopath?


Seriously...there are apparently a lot of theists out there who would be baby-raping homicidal arsonists if they didn't believe in hell.

She's never done anything to me personally, but she's a public person who publicly says stupid things and is therefore being publicly mocked and criticized.  It's part of the price that comes with being a media-made billionaire.

WAIT WAIT WAIT

In the future, all restaurants are Taco Bell. That must mean... that the prophecies are true and tacos is/are the one true god!!

AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!

*crashes through window*

*flees to Burger King*

So... In the grand pantheon of restaurant gods, what are the combo Taco Bell/Long John Silver restaurants?

Never seen one of those. We have Taco Bell/KFCs around here. They get annoyed when you ask for gravy on your tacos.

She says it is because when they pop they sound like  guns and she doesn't like guns, so she hates balloons.

Which makes about as much sense as not liking a specific color of person because so many of them commit crimes.
