They should be required to *prove* any statement that includes "definitely."
 
2009-02-05 10:00:26 AM  
"definitely"?


Do tell...
 
2009-02-05 10:00:31 AM  
So, their argument is "nuh-uh".

Anyways, let them have their ads. They are going to be obsolete soon enough anyways.

If I were in London I'd be really pissed off. I can see the bus traffic now:
[yes there is][no there isn't][is too!!!!][is not!!!!][ uh-huh ][ nuh-uhh ]

The Christian Party? As in, political party? Well isn't that just a kick in the pants.
 
2009-02-05 10:26:36 AM  
I'm sure this thread is going to be full of people who normally bash atheists for being so "certain" in their "beliefs" bashing Christians for this "definitely" nonsense. Right? Right?

No YOU'RE a Towel: They are going to be obsolete soon enough anyways.

I'm not seeing any end-of-life notices on Stupidity v.2009. They just keep releasing new versions.

When you have to resort to such piddling measures to keep your religion relevant, it's too late...

Things needed for a successful party:

Boobies
Alcohol
Drugs
Loud rock music
Two drunk chicks making out

Things considered sinful or of the debil:

See all of above

Can I join?

I'd like to see their evidence to support "definitely." Sounds like false advertising to me.
 
2009-02-05 10:48:13 AM  
how can you enjoy life when god is looking over your shoulder all the time. i can't have fun and be good at the same time, now can i?

Sure...you get to sleep in on Sundays too.

If it is on the side of a bus, it must be true. There's your PROOF!

nitwits: There definitely is a God.

Yup, but it's Zeus. Sorry, Christians!
 
2009-02-05 10:59:54 AM  
Let me lay out why this is dumb:

People don't need to create a pro-Christian zeitgeist. You don't need ads to make people comfortable being Christian. Christianity is not just accepted, but overwhelmingly dominant. The idea behind the atheist bus signs, even if you think they are retarded, are much the same as the aims behind things Richard Dawkins does - to move the Overton window and just get atheism into the public consciousness. Make people aware, make it a comfortable and normal part of existence.

This is dumb.

I believe there is a God, but I also think that Jesus was the David Copperfield of his time.
 
2009-02-05 11:07:29 AM  
I also like the correlation. "There is a God so be a Christian!" Do they say there is a Christian God? Nooope. What if they mean like, There is a (Roman) God, but fark him and be a Christian instead? Well then they're just dooming you to suffer the wrath of Zeus. What jackasses.

GIS for Christian Party:

Actually, I expected more cankles.

Caradoc: They should be required to *prove* any statement that includes "definitely."

As long as this goes for both Theists and Atheists, I'm fine with that.

only christians go to heaven you heathen.

We actually agree on something. Odd.

Tatsuma, you are making the claim that god exists, therefore, the burden is on you.

DamnYankees: We actually agree on something. Odd.

Beer is delicious, women are beautiful, never a truer statement: "I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly... ", if everyone made peace it would be awesome, the sky is blue, life even with all its occasional setbacks is beautiful and worth living, celine dion and nickelback is the reason why canada should be nuked from orbit

I'm sure we agree on plenty of things!

Tatsuma: I'm sure we agree on plenty of things!


I actually don't like the taste of beer.

FootInMouthDisease: Tatsuma, you are making the claim that god exists, therefore, the burden is on you.

And when you make the claim that G-d doesn't exist (ch"vs), the burden falls on you, no?

DamnYankees: I actually don't like the taste of beer.

What is wrong with you?!?

If you tell me you can't enjoy a cold Guinness during a hot evening, that's fighting words, mate.

To the same extent it's my burden to prove that leprechauns don't exist.

If anyone were to make that claim, sure. But most people don't, even if they word it that way.

I also think its pretty easy to show most formulations of god don't exist.

I've never actually had Guinness. I'm not really a drinker. I'm addicted to diet soda.

Jerusalem this summer, you, me, a tall Guinness and a plate of Shawarma.

Then it's scotch scotch scotchy scotch. Sounds good?

If anyone were to make that claim, sure. But most people don't, even if they word it that way.

I see you're new to these threads. Enjoy it!

Tatsuma no you are making a positive assertion.

I'm sure in temple, 'god did it' is an okay explanation, but science doesnt care about magic, we look for actual answers, instead of blind indoctrination.

yes i realize most Jews understand the torah is more like a book of allegories, than taken for sooth, but you really ought to be more careful with the conjectures you posit.

Rewrite headline:

Sooth?

FootInMouthDisease: Tatsuma no you are making a positive assertion.

The fact that my assertion is positive or not is irrelevant. ARe you saying that if I say "Man never walked on the moon", since this is a negative assertion, i don't need to prove it?

Same goes for "Yoshke never actually existed", actually.
 
2009-02-05 11:24:15 AM  
Good for them. Won't change anything.
 
2009-02-05 11:24:21 AM  
Tatsuma off to give a lecture, i'll check back around 1:30PM CST (or -6GMT)

"definitely is"?

Depends of what the definition of is is, I suppose.

Does anyone else think that Hindu goddess with all the arms is hot?

If you don't, then neither do I.
 
2009-02-05 11:26:08 AM  
the atheist bus campaign: there probably isn't a god, stop worrying and enjoy your life
christian bus campaign: there definitely is a god, etc.

to be honest the atheist bus campaign sounds more like the agnostic bus campaign.
 
2009-02-05 11:26:11 AM  
Tatsuma The fact that my assertion is positive or not is irrelevant.

Only in your mind, is this irrelevant.

There is definitely more to the multiverse than we comprehend.

Whether it's all wrapped up in undead Hebrews is less certain. Just a bit.

Cold Guinness? Them's fightin' words, mate!

Anyways, religion seems to be fading in the US but it's going pretty good in other parts of the world as far as I know and let's not forget that there are still quite a number of rabid fundies around. My prediction is that it will make a comeback in a decade or two. It's comfort food for the soul for some people. Hard to resist and it makes you fat (or something like that).
