FloridaWombat: SheltemDragon: dahmers love zombie: The funniest thing about the Jack Chick form of Christianity is that, after the life our protagonist led, if he had TRULY repented and taken Jesus into his heart five seconds before the plane hit the mountain, he would go directly to heaven.

Same thing with serial child murderers. You can kidnap, rape, torture, and kill 100 toddlers, but the fundie Xtian lot says that after doing all that, as long as you are "born again" (and get this -  since we're "all sinners", you don't even have to apologize for what you did before, you just have to truly "repent" of your prior sins!  Even that BS Alcoholics Anonymous stuff talks about "making amends", but not in Jack Chick's world), you get to go to heaven with glowy, faceless Jebus.

But Ghandi and Mother Teresa are in Hell.

Sorry, Jack.  If that's how the supernatural system works, I want no part of it.  It's repugnant.

As much as I don't subscribe to the "Born Again" theology, it is one part of their doctrine I can get behind. Sorta. Repentance of any type during life, while noble if sincere, is by nature incomplete. I believe that when it happens, truly, is after death.

Revelation upon death is the only method that I can rationalize a kind and loving deity against the the problem of evil (via free will). What I mean is, when one dies you suddenly get to see how it all works. At which point there can only really be one of two outcomes; repentance and acceptance or willful oblivion (I do not believe that there is a hell, aka gods eternal torture palace). Either life is a learning experience for what comes next, or your rejection of the whole is so strong that you quietly obliterate yourself.

/ This is no way justifies sin during life
// I likely do not have it even remotely right, but we all try.
/// Critiques and debates welcome, but if your approaching it from absolute atheism we won't get anywhere so why bother.

So they've come back around full circle to Catholic absolution throug ...


In a more absolutist way, kinda. To be fair, I am operating under a few basic assumptions.
1) There is a loving god ( But we likely unable to understand exactly what that means as we are physiologically defined beings ) and a afterlife (the nature of which is either ascension or gnostic reincorporation with god. I'm still out on this one)
2) The universe operates in largely a Deistic manner (God set up a natural law governed universe and then does not ever directly interfere with its operation.)
3) This the goal of this thing is to produce the only thing that a absolute deity cannot directly produce on its own. Free Willed companionship / experience / successors.
4) That a loving god would not install an eternally punitive system, and that awareness revelation would make the regret / rejection choice instantaneous.

I feel like I should also add that I firmly believe that forgiveness and justice are two completely different concepts and yet connected on some level, at least in a corporal sense. After all, there cannot be any forgiveness without regret and the truly regretful will want to atone / pay for their harmful actions. External forgiveness is meaningless without internal forgiveness and internal forgiveness cannot happen without regret.This is where I diverge hard from Catholic Absolution. You have to make peace with what you've done, no amount of external blessing can help you.

Note- Not feeling bad about performing a harmful action once your aware it harmful is *not* internal forgiveness/ It's sociopathic.

Aquapope: FloridaWombat: /// Critiques and debates welcome, but if your approaching it from absolute atheism we won't get anywhere so why bother.

Rationalism need not apply.


To a certain extent? Yes.

There isn't any happy medium between deistic belief and absolute atheism. And no externally reproducible way to prove either to the satisfaction of the other.

So why waste energy on the argument.

These evangelical people need to be shunned. Publicly. Everywhere.

In the restaurants, the fast food joints, the tire shops, the stationery stores.

Everywhere.

No rudeness required, just quietly but adamantly shunned.

Or they are going to pull us all down to Hell with them.

hardinparamedic: The Yattering: "Love him" is an option?

In the same way we love Uncle Joe, your distant relative who probably has undiagnosed Aspergers who can't stop touching himself and singing Cher songs at family reunions.


You know, most of us with undiagnosed Asperger's\autism can at least manage not to touch ourselves in public. I wasn't diagnosed until eighteen and I was still capable of such basic things as that.

Still say the other photo is a takeoff on this

Gah, I remember the article, but it evades my Google-fu.  Can some farker nail it down?  The guy who did the drawing saw Chick at some presentation or film show.

Lost me when they started omitting important words from the Bible verses they quoted (1 Timothy 6:10).

The guy who wrote it drew the drawing.  He had an old site with the article, but seems to have lost much moving stuff to his new site.

Anyway, archive.org to the rescue

Haven't followed link yet as stuck on subway& won't be above ground for a bit. BUT I don't mean parody like 'making fun' but parody like 'we're gonna take this evil shiat to the extreme and see if anybody even notices'. Sorta 'onion does chick' and no one can tell the difference. Like that Alice Donut song about a guy pimping his daughter and finding salvation via a chick track. "I'm in the soup now!"

Sorry, I think it's the underground 42nd street passage. I work downtown now so it's been a while.

It's in the passageway from Port Authority to Times Square. I remember looking at it as I stumbled home one night like...Wha??


K, just walked thru on a walk of shame (well, not really shame so much as walk of genital scrubbing in another borough imminent). ANYWAY, yeah, that is totes farked up, was gonna take pix, will at some point when I don't feel like total barfy crap. But it's totally "you're tired, work sucks, it ain't getting better , just farking go home, where u may want to kill yrself, but who cares, you're gonna die anyway". NYC is farking messed up, like even it's official capacity! This ain't barsky or whomever painting snotty hipster art. This is straight up state sponsored 'kill yourself' public art. !!!!!!
