Wow, someone who woefully

Wow, someone who woefully misunderstands atheism, religion and government.

And that was just in the first two paragraphs.

lol. When physical education teachers try to be scientists and philosophers, tonight at 11. Laughing out loud

P.S. No offence intended to Big E, just an observation on the 'coach'.

The reason I posted this was

The reason I posted this was because somebody posted this in another place I frequent and did so in all seriousness. I gritted my teeth reading it. Now I have to argue why this whole thing is filled with BS. I mean, how can you be wrong about absolutely everything? Not to mention flat out lie. ( I don't want an answer to the first question from the lot of you) lol

Great Grotty Grue, that man

Great Grotty Grue, that man is made of 100% pure American ignorance, and proud of it. And, he's from Ohio.

Sure, we had a fairly cool summer. But today is also the first day it's snowed here in Cleveland. (Wait -- I think there were a few flakes last week, too.) Normally, we should be up to our asses in snow right now, but it's in the low 40s today.

I like how he larned all about theories and hypothesis. That makes him a philosopher of science, I reckon. So Darwinism isn't a fact, and creationism would be a science, if only scientists studied it.

Thanks, Big E. My faith in humanity hasn't been that great lately anyway. This sure ain't helping.

"Yes, I seriously believe that consciousness is a product of a natural process. I find that the neuroscientists, psychologists, and philosophers who proceed from that premise are the ones who are actually making useful contributions to our understanding of the mind." - PZ Myers

I like how that dipstick

I like how that dipstick posted:

Quote:
I did a project on it in high school Biology and, if I remember correctly, I fudged the facts a bit to make the crisis seem worse.

Well he's still fudging the facts... but it's good to know he comes from a dishonest background, and had no understanding how to utilize science in a fair manner.

Theories are neither good nor bad. They are merely a starting point for an idea. The job of “Science” should be to study the theories, not promote them. If global warming and her sibling macro-evolution (origins) were proven they would no longer be ‘theories.” Why don’t “scientists” promote the theory of gravity? They don’t have to because truth speaks for itself..

The stupid........it burns.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

What a funster he is

 

"Atheism is the established religion in America. Humanism, Environmentalism, Darwinism, Materialism, and Global Warming are examples of its denominations."

 

Isn't it interesting how christianity needs to occupy the woe-me ground? And it's hilarious the way your classic theist numbat ties all this stuff together.

I can't say it without a mental grimace but until there's no fucking ice left in the Antarctic these goons simply not will not believe in global warming.

I've called for my celestial mayflower before and after reading this I need it again. I need to get off this stupid planet urgently.

 

P.S. I reckon this bloke should take my mother out on a date. They have soooooo much in common...

EDIT:

Bloody hell, I read it again; now my whole face melted off. I bet they put some prayers on that article to eliminate all evil readers.

Or it's just a matter of this;

i'm sorry, i just can't

i'm sorry, i just can't finish this.  i gave up after he said "a theory is an hypothesis."  ("AN hypothesis"?  seriously?  wtf, is this guy an edwardian english nobleman?)  this statement really makes me doubt he ever had a high school science course, contrary to his statement.

I read it all. And

And really... pardon me for saying so... but shit like this makes me think that America deserves all that's coming to her.

I know there are good people too, but you really gotta do what the bad people say: GTFO.

The shithouse WILL go up in flames. (Not literally, of course, more like the flatulent sigh of a dying old man.)

Oh big E, you of all people who served in our military should know it is your place to pay taxes, risk your life and play Uncle Tom and say "yessem massa" and sit quietly at the back of the bus. Now be a good kitten barbecue'r and don't pick on the zombiegod fans.

Sooo... anyone living in Canada or Mexico willing to put me and my dog up in case we have to flee the country?  I ask this in quasi-sincerity because even if nothing serious goes down, it's good to have an exit strategy.

I think this guy has been

I think this guy has been blasted and laughed at on all the obvious fronts, so I'd like to point out something else kind of funny. He links to a dictionary definition which, I'm sure, contains what he quoted. I haven't checked, I'm giving him that as a token of good will. But I happen to have the latest version of the OED which I consider the authoritative English language dictionary. So I checked it.

Yes, "ism" is a word by itself. But the separate listing, as a suffix, is "...to act like, do after the manner of, practise the habits, customs, or language of, side with or adhere to the party of, those people." Therefore, if he wants to throw definitions out there, the Oxford English Dictionary would say theists are acting like God, not atheists.

Cheap shot? Yes. But he isn't nearly intelligent enough to hold an intellectual conversation, so I started with that.

Come to think about it, I can convince myself to finish with another cheap shot. I wonder what he thinks about patriotism. Or racism. Personally, I think he could use some realism.

God prefers athiests? Wow,

God prefers athiests? Wow, that isnt the most contradictory statement ive ever seen. Athiest's goal is to eliminate the theory of God its self, hence 'killing' God and yet sence we have more rational reasoning skills in life situations God likes us better. But of course it was just a comic strip...next time, try picking statements that are more efective.

Gods are very fragile things; they can be broken with just the tinniest whiff of science or a small dose of logic...

 I have to ask, has anyone

 

I have to ask, has anyone confirmed that this is serious? It seems much more likely to me that this was written by an atheist who is trying to make a parody of arguments some misinformed Christians use.

 

I don't understand why the Christians I meet find it so confusing that I care about the fact that they are wasting huge amounts of time and resources playing with their imaginary friend. Even non-confrontational religion hurts atheists because we live in a society which is constantly wasting resources and rejecting rational thinking.

I just looked him up on Facebook, and went through like 20 of his friends... they're all hardcore Christians/evolution deniers/homophobes/ect.  Amazingly, this man's stupidity seems to be legitimate (unless he is just SO good that he has duped all these Christians into buying it).

I read it all; it wasn't

I read it all; it wasn't anywhere nearly as bad as I expected.

He's so ignorant of science that it's not likely anybody who already isn't more ignorant than he is will take him seriously, and he didn't really say much.

Climatologists might be offended, though, since he credited all of their work to Biologists.

Whoa... whoa

I could hardly get through the first couple of paragraphs. The level of science illiteracy is so stunning in this one. It just amazes me that the guy is still alive, and hasn't been awarded a Darwin award yet. WOW!

I personally feel that if all the good rational people with the wealth to leave get going, what happens to those not lucky enough or privileged to GTFO. I feel it is my responsibility to fight for my ideals where ever I am, and that includes my home.
