The same sort that thanks Jesus when it's their neighbors who actually help them.

I had a friend many years ago in Alaska who was on a busy road in a snowstorm when a woman ahead of him lost control and went off the road onto a frozen lake. The surface shattered behind her car and she was sinking.

Everyone stopped, but nobody was doing anything. As the car was going under, Harold, close to 70 at the time, took off his coat and shoes and dived into the icy water, got her out of the car, and pulled her to the bank in freezing temperatures.

The woman excitedly looked each person in the face saying "Thank Jesus! Thank Jesus!" over and over again while they waited for emergency services to show up. She never thanked Harold.

Nemo's Brother: The only anger and hatred I have seen in the story and in the comments on their site were from atheists.

What about on this site? In this thread? No hatred from christians?

I'll admit the atheists on Fark have been mostly ok today.  My view, help who you choose to. As a Christian, I don't mind that he choose to help only a fellow non-believer. It's just kind of odd that he did so not even caring a lick about that person.

What is odd? He clearly admitted his reasons were not altruistic. He is a professional comedian doing something dickish to be funny. Why is this surprising?

When a true Christian Scotsman gives to a cause, they don't care if a Christian, Jew, Muslim, atheist or Jedi receive the aid. They just want to help. I know the average atheist that donates feels that way as well. This guy is just a douche.

"I didn't do it because I felt sympathy because she got all her shiat destroyed by a tornado," he said. "I did it simply to be a prick to her Okie-Christian neighbors, hoping that they were still eating off of FEMA trucks when someone drove up and presented Rebecca with a giant cardboard check."  

This quote completely encapsulates what it means to be an atheist.

No matter how much rage and sarcasm they muster, this is all they will ever have, all they will ever be.

Rant away, basement dwellers...

"Thank God for 9/11. Thank God that, five years ago, the wrath of God was poured out upon this evil nation. America, land of the sodomite damned. We thank thee, Lord God Almighty, for answering the prayers of those that are under the altar."

This quote completely encapsulates what it means to be a christian.

That's one person's opinion and not shared by 99.9% of those in most religious following, excluding muslims of course.

You missed his point completely... or ignored it to say something 'witty'

No I get the point and its to try and say how religion is so horrible therefore it must be abolished to save humanity.

An old persons opinion of how it used to be is not representative of the entire faith.

No his point was one person speaking about "being a prick" as an athiest no more represents athiests all around like one douche christian saying "thank god for 9/11" represents christians all around. Context matters. Read the post he was responding to and maybe you'll see that... or maybe not.

I get that too, the problem is almost every single atheist I have ever met acts like a prick at the slightest little perceived wrong. And most of the time they are just being the person looking like an ass.


And I could say the same about most christians I've met. You don't grow up gay in the south and not run into people being assholes in the name of christ. At least the atheists haven't put their prickishness into law... I still can't get married because christians think two men together is "wrong". Which group is more prickish again?

To each his own, I suppose.  I'm not super fond of hateful shiat stirrers and trouble makers, even if they're doing it in response to perceived hate and intolerance.  So while it's awesome that you're helping people out, people who've presumably lost their homes, possessions and possibly even friends and family, I still think it's despicable that you'd do it simply to spite other folks.  But then again, at least he's being honest about it.  However, the honesty part is likely just part of drumming up publicity for himself.  So really, this guy is kinda like Frogurt.

I would like to give a big, ole "You go girl" to Rebecca, though.  It's puzzling to me how upset it makes people when they find out that some folks are atheists.  And, because of the reactions, which can come with some pretty harsh consequences, it does take a Hell of a lot of courage to discuss your atheism in the national spot light.

How would you know? Do you think atheists walk around with Scarlet As on their vests? We're a small part of the US population.

In Sweden, where the nonreligious are the vast majority of the population, the quality of life is demonstrably far superior to that in the US by any number of metrics. You can google that.

You know the religious charities because they do it to spread religion. In order for religion to spread, it's necessary to find people who are either emotionally undeveloped, or in emotional turmoil -- either in early childhood, or right after a disaster or period of desperation in their lives.

They use charity as bait for desperate fish.

How do you know this?

The only reason you see religious organizations is because there are enough people to make religious organizations, and those organizations want to advertise for themselves.

Bill Gates is an atheist, and has set up a multi-billion-dollar foundation for education and the alleviation of suffering. Warren Buffett is also non-religious, and has donated billions.

And that part about the Government stealing your money and it not being charity? Many voters think the government is much more efficient and impartial than religious charities -- you don't have to sit through an hour lecture on how horrible you are before you get food stamps.

The Red Cross is non-religious and impartial, and doles out some of the most efficient relief in times of emergency.

You're just on a high-horse because you have higher numbers. There's no data that says Christians are automatically more charitable than the non-religious.

Problem is he's 100% wrong, its not the farking 60-70s any longer, nobody gives a shiat about your religious preferences.

And I bet you argue with more people that just like to tweak you but don't give a shiat about religion or your made up slights in the name of religion.

People like this remind of the reddit atheists who make up stories of their Darwin fish being ripped off by minivans that are covered in religious bumper stickers when it was just someone they cut off in traffic.

Nobody gives a shiat what you do or don't believe, get over yourselves and quit acting like your persecuted.

Ummmm.. actually, people do still care.  Lots.  If you don't think so, then think of how often openly atheist politicians get elected.  Religion is seen as an instant character reference, while atheism is seen as an admission of Randian objectivist immorality.  Sad, but true.

No its not, a majority of politicians are not religious at all and people no longer associate morality with religion. Sorry to burst your bubble but its just not true.

And atheists don't get elected because most are just agnostic rather than atheist and I know of more than one of those in office. Agnostics are more open minded than atheists because they are willing to accept that there is an unknown. Atheists seem to go out of their way to scream at anyone that doubts god doesn't exist.

And yet you griped upthread about people painting Christians with a broad brush.  Way to go.

I have quite a few family members that are atheist and all are pricks even though none of the religious side gives them grief. They act all put out by them even though they are pleasant to them and not preachy, they act shiatty because my aunt dared to have her crucifix out when they came to her house for a family fu ...

So basically what you're saying is that YOUR broad generalizations are okay.

I have had hundreds of interactions with atheists and all save one was confrontational starting on their end and keep in mind I'm not even christian, I'm agnostic.

I would say very few atheists have interactions with religious people as much since most people never mention religion and choose to socialize at other functions.

My point is there are a lot more religious than atheists and if its not oppressive then there is no reason to raise a stink. Most of these people biatch about shiat thats not oppressive at all.

Also this girls smug response is what makes her coonty, like she's acted that way all the time just to piss people off. Its what I've come to expect from closed minded atheists.


How about christians codifying their hate into law just because people that don't follow their religion may be doing something they don't like? Is that prickish enough to be considered oppression?

When I lived in Alabama, I would say 90% of the time, at least, when you met a new person their first two questions to you were "what football team do you support?" quickly followed by "what church do you go to?" To say that's not people mentioning religion is to have a highly blinded view of your average clay....

I brought up this point with a believing friend. I said "so often, you see or hear about someone involved in a terrible car accident; the first civilian responders call 911 and perform first aid if they are able. The police show up and block off traffic for the fire and paramedic crews to get in and extract the person from the wreckage and begin stabilizing the patient while awaiting the LifeFlight helicopter. Once aboard, the flight nurse begins caring for the patient as the pilot and crew make a high-speed run to the nearest hospital. Once there, the patient is taken to the trauma facility, where a team of nurses begin examining and further stabilizing the patient until a doctor can arrive to administer and coordinate further care, which may involve a surgical team. Then followup care and monitoring is carried out by a dedicated medical staff. And then the person has the audacity to thank GOD. How insulting to such a large group of people."

"But don't you see?" said my friend. "God sent those people!"

Divinegrace: Premeditated_Road_Rage: For those arguing about who is more charitable, Christians or non, take a closer look at most Christian charity drives.


[snip]

Bottom line: Most Christians are charitable merely from being guilted or pressured into it.  Remove the judgemental frowns of the dead-god-on-a-stick and their fellow faithful and more Christians would keep their wallets closed, showing the real numbers of charity.

It is good to know we have an expert on motivations of charitable Christians. I am sure that you have done double blind studies on this, and you are not just talking out your tail.


I've done just as many studies on it as you've done on your argument.  Well, not me personally, but yeah, there have actually been studies done on the 'phenomenon', not just on tithing, but on other Samaritan acts as well.  Basic human psychology though - people tend to modify their behavior when there is either risk or reward involved.

You are right though, Christians are charitable out of guilt and on guilt alone. Being charitable is not a reward on its own merit and if not for guilt no Christian would ever be charitable. /rollseyes

Most are acting in a Pavlovian manner, but yes, some Christians are capable of being charitable without having to be bullied.  Roll your eyes all you want - you'll just end up looking stupid (meaning via the physical act of eyerolling) and will not have to witness me laughing at you as you stare at the welcoming darkness of your own eye sockets in the hopes that the movement of your eyes will make me feel less about myself in any way, shape or form.

That goes back to the point that if the government is taking the money from people and doing the work then the people no longer get the only benefit that comes from being charitable (the satisfaction of seeing the benefits of their charity)

Why do they need that 'satisfaction'?  Are they getting satisfaction from God or man in that instance?  Read your own book, especially the part where it talks about (granted, in regard to self-starvation done to invoke religious hallucinations fasting) not 'sucking in the cheeks and making a big show of it for others.

If the satisfaction of the act alone isn't 'good enough' and the government 'robs them of that', then they are doing it all for the wrong reasons.

As for hospitals and health care....in America the majority hospitals and health care are not about healing the sick or caring for the wounded...its about making money PERIOD.

You are absolutely correct.  Because all doctors in the US get a free ride for 8+ years of college just to become doctors, get a free pass on all insurances, all hospitals have a special room where multi-million dollar state of the art medical equipment is just farted into existence by unicorns, and the pharmaceutical companies, etc., don't have to pay for R&D, materials, or anything.

Please, tell me, when you rolled your eyes earlier, did they roll all the way down to your ass?

The only exceptions are those open / run by 'religious nut jobs' (like the Shriner's) who are crazy because they care more about healing the sick and caring for the injured than they do about how much money they have in the bank.

I can tell by this statement that you know jack squat about the Shriners/Masons.  Might want to do a little reading before you continue to wave this particular flag around. LOL

Divinegrace: So not even ONE homeless shelter or Hospital that is funded by atheists / agnostics that you can cite then....I am not surprised.

I'm not, either. A small minority of citizens don't have the resources to set up self-aggrandizing charities in atheism's name, and they probably would find more efficient means to help the poor -- again, look at countries with less religious pollution, and you'll find higher quality of life by using the secular government to administer relief. The only reason atheists have to form organizations is to fight back against the tyranny of theists.

For those arguing about who is more charitable, Christians or non, take a closer look at most Christian charity drives.

Most of them involve sermons tailored to tug at the heartstrings, which then, in turn, tug at the wallet.  Think CCF would get as many donations with just a text ad instead of photos and videos of kids looking all sad and weepy (hey, screw the grown-ups, who are probably starving MORE so that their kids can eat, right?).  Other drives remind Christians how great their reward will be in the afterlife if they are charitable in life, as if karma was a lottery ticket with a 10:1 payout.  Even the collection plate is a subconscious trigger.  You see the person on your left toss a $20 in the plate and suddenly you feel really shiatty about only donating $1.  This is also why many ushers tend to toss their own tithes into the plates before they even start circulating, as seeing money already in there triggers the guilt-need to match or exceed.

Bottom line: Most Christians are charitable merely from being guilted or pressured into it.  Remove the judgemental frowns of the dead-god-on-a-stick and their fellow faithful and more Christians would keep their wallets closed, showing the real numbers of charity.

The same sort that thanks Jesus when it's their neighbors who actually help them.

I had a friend many years ago in Alaska who was on a busy road in a snowstorm when a woman ahead of him lost control and went off the road onto a frozen lake. The surface shattered behind her car and she was sinking.

Everyone stopped, but nobody was doing anything. As the car was going under, Harold, close to 70 at the time, took off his coat and shoes and dived into the icy water, got her out of the car, and pulled her to the bank in freezing temperatures.

The woman excitedly looked each person in the face saying "Thank Jesus! Thank Jesus!" over and over again while they waited for emergency services to show up. She never thanked Harold.


This is my promise. The next time come out a rough situation without getting my entire ass handed to me, I'm going to thank Harold.

Of course, God will then kill Harold and hurt everyone he loves, as per protocol.

I didn't do it because I felt sympathy because she got all her shiat destroyed by a tornado, I did it simply to be a prick to her Okie-Christian neighbors.

And what better time than christmas!

mediablitz: He's exactly right. What kind of sicko thanks "God" for killing his neighbors? Shouldn't the proper answer be "God is an asshole for killing all these people and destroying all these lives. Why would I thank him?".

the same person who thanked the lord for their winning touchdown

Man, is this some sort of program?  Like Obamacare?  'Cause I'd be willing to SWEAR I don't believe in Baby J for 126 large.
