DNA

DNA is a language, only intelligence can create a language therefore god exists.

The one that makes me laugh the most :

You can't prove that he does not exist, therefore god exists.

When they use this argument, I start laughing because I have to rebut with "In other words, the only proof is that there is no proof and no proof means proof ? What kind of proof is that ? "

“It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.”

The most convincing argument

The most convincing argument I've heard is, "Kate Beckensale exists, therefore god exists"

There are no transitory fossils therefore god exists.

I agree that the existence of Kate Beckinsale causes me to pause, but I have yet to hear a theist put forth this claim.  Laughing out loud

I like banana man's argument.

 

Atheists think that nothing made everything, which is clearly incoherent, therefore god exists.

 

My rebuttal is that Ray Ray thinks that something made everything which is clearly less coherent.

Among many irritants

 

 

* Thought is immaterial, therefore it is supernatural, therefore god exists.

* The law of non contradiction states something cannot be both possible and impossible. God cannot be proved impossible, therefore god exists.

* The literary historical method comprising cross referencing by multiple sources supports the existence of a jesus, prove me wrong using the same method or therefore god exists.

* Humans are moral, therefore god exists.

* The possibility of abiogenesis by pure chance is remote, therefore god exists.

* There must have been a prime mover, therefore god exists. 

* Show me clear empirical evidence of transitional fossils or I will be forced to believe in the supernatural and don't call me a walking paradox, you atheist bastard, therefore god exists.

Then why did we feel the need to escape in the first place? Oh yes, it is because of how things sucked in Europe back then. It took two wars to secure out hemisphere. Even then we have had to go over there and kick some European ass. Twice even.

All of the prophecies in the bible (the OT) are true, therefore god is real.

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

Bahahahahaha. You don't get away that easily!

That's a far cry from Italy being "the most atheist nation". Remind me, when someone wants to sell a legal, consumer grade product to someone with lots of money and a nation lots of potential buyers, who do they choose again? The Swiss? Germany? France? UK? Spain? G r e e c e? Rrrrrusssia? No, they don't. They sell to us. We're champion heavyweight in terms of earning money and spending it on useless chit. We also have a trade deficit.

Also, we're close to 1st place in terms of campus kids doing remarkably stupid shit with their spare time. These are young adult undergrads, most of whom paid tuition fees with someone's money other than their own. Some of them are ciscofatties. A remarkably entitled and short-sighted bunch, to put it mildly.

Here are some more arguments

Here are some more arguments for God, though most are not real ones, i.e. not things I've actually heard from theists, despite the fact that they probably make no less sense than most of the real ones:

-Some of the best music ever composed is divine. Only God or what comes from God is divine, therefore God exists.

-There's a lot of evil in the world. You can't define evil without comparing it with its opposite, i.e. Good. Only God is really good, therefore God exists.

-My mother and father, as well as my brother, passed away many years ago and I've never heard from them ever since. The bible says the living can not communicate with the dead, so my lack of communication with my dead relatives proves the bible is true. Therefore God exists.

-Many people believe there's a god. According to Jean Chauvin belief is knowledge, so these people know there's a god. I don't believe there's a god, i.e. I know there isn't a god. So there is a god and there isn't a god at the same time. Ok, we have a problem here, but it's easy to solve. We have ample proof of things that exist but no proof of things that don't exist. Therefore God exists. [This is the Argumentum ad Jeanum Chauvinum].

-Many people pray every day that the world does not come to an end tomorrow. The world has never come to an end, so there is a god that answers prayers. Therefore God exists.

-God is a Trinity, i.e. three gods in one. It takes more than a human mind to conceive such an elaborate stupidity, so a god must have thought it. Therefore God exists.

-There are many theists and many theistic websites making incredibly outlandish claims. No human being can be so retarded and still be able to make grammatically and syntactically acceptable sentences, so it's a miracle! Only god's power can perform miracles, therefore God exists.

-Chickens and other birds raise their heads to the sky when they drink water. They do that to thank God for the water He gives them. Therefore God exists. [My grandmother's argument].

-My salary has gone down almost 40% in the last two years, taxation (selectively against salary and wage dependent people - others may have millions in the banks and declare annual incomes of just 6,000 to 12,000 euros!) is sky-rocketing and prices are not falling one cent. It's doubtful that the state will have any money to pay me or any Greek working for the government from next month on. However, here's at least one Greek still sane enough (but no guarantees for the immediate future) to be able to write about something other than his own and his country's plight. Isn't this a miracle? Therefore God exists. [I'll call this the Argument from Postponed Insanity]

Spare the rod and spoil the god!

It would be comical if people like O crappy didn't truly believe that the universe was simply a marionette under the control of a magical super hero.

I loved it when Tyson got on Cobert and bitch slapped him.

Hey O'crappy, we actually do know why the tides change and we do know why the earth rotates around the sun. O'crappy must have played hookie in his 5th grade science class.

But to this day, it has to be one of the best self inflicted wounds on the side of theists letting a jackass like him try to make arguments for theists. And whats better is that it further exposes Fox News as the joke it really is.

Way to take a knife to a gunfight. If O'crappy is looking for a "Pinhead" he need to look no further than his mirror. Well, he might have to wash off all the narcissistic jizz off of it first.
