Theist Challenge met: I conceive of something that doesn't exist

Upon editing a show today I stumbled across a funny short segment.  I'm digging through almost 60 hours of unedited content, and working on having around 100 hours of fresh content available by years end.  Subscribers, please stick with us as I work to bring you tons of new material. 

Here is the short clip... meet the Furger Argorock...

  In that case Jill, you deserve to know what your first plushie comment prompted four months ago. Didn't really care to show it off for fear of looking like well... a damn show off with too much time on her hands. xD

Its funny, I have always

Its funny, I have always felt that it is precisely because the typical God concept is so obviously just a human concept of a father-figure and/or alpha-male inflated to 'super-being' status that proves it originated in our own primitive brains.

The path to Truth lies via careful study of reality, not the dreams of our fallible minds - me

From the sublime to the ridiculous: Science -> Philosophy -> Theology

 Omg, that picture is fucking amazing! You just made the Furger Argorock my second favorite imaginary being. (the first is still FSM) 

Aw, thanks a lot. :>

What the hell, while I'm at this nonsense here's a quick tee design. Not enough lovable imaginary beings to compete with old Spaghetti anyway. x)

Like I asked you in the e-mail... Have you thought about mass production? JillSwift is just one market demographic you could target. lol.

Gone are the days when atheists were typically just obnoxious old men not in need of plushies.

That was my dear sister emailing you about my plushie, not me. (I had no success emailing. xD) Anyway I haven't thought about mass production, because Furgor Argorock is Sapient's intellectual property. But if you believe Furgors have enough marketable potential, I'll be more than happy to help you guys make cuddly Furgies available to the likes of Jillswift! A Furgy in every atheist child's bedroom!

Tell me about it... next thing you know, we'll eventually lose our tradition of sympathy for Hilter/Stalin as well.

Would you like to point out

Would you like to point out one characteristic that God possesses that could not have been created by man?    

 

Sure,  all of them.    Man cant create anything.

Every single one I can think

Every single one I can think of is drawn from things people have experienced . 

(That is the whole point, some human at some point in time had to experience GOD.  He then propogated this idea through the generations.)

 

By logic, god (any god) is man-made

(Can you not see the contrdiction in these, your 2 statements?)

 

To be intellectualy honoest I will conceed that man throughout time has worshipped spirits represented by symbols such as monkeys, elephants, idols etc,  however I think you  miss the greater point here.  And that is:

Why did peoples throghout the earth feel the need to worship anything in the first place ?

If you have indeed concieved

If you have indeed concieved of something that does not exist then you have gone beyond the natural world into the spiritual.  A strange place indeed for an athiest wouldnt you say?

CONGRATULATIONS!! 

.......on becoming a theist.

Hey Bro, who are you talking

Hey Bro, who are you talking to?  Nothing can nor ever was created, only re-shaped.

Congratulations Ernest Hemingway who said: "All thinking men are atheists."

Well, hello.

We have been pondering the theory that we can't conceive of anything that we haven't experienced. Even the Furger Argorock is just a compilation of known traits of different animals. The statement that you have made here is an assertion I have heard from many theists; as a premise, you've already assumed that the concept of God is impossible unless He exists, but this concept can be easily attributed to human invention. I mean, think about it. We have love and power, combine that with the mathematical concept of infinity, and tada! Furthermore, it is often claimed that He has a body exactly like ours, except it's perfect. He loves. He's jealous. He's our Heavenly Father, whom sent His only begotten Son down to Earth to be crucified for our sins.

Quote:
(That is the whole point, some human at some point in time had to experience GOD.  He then propogated this idea through the generations.)
 

But, in the same that we imagined the Furger Argorock, Santa Claus, and vampires through things that we know, why can't we imagine God? The Bible even says that we were created in His image! That just seems ridiculously obvious to me. 

Quote:
(Can you not see the contrdiction in these, your 2 statements?)

No, I can't. Please explain.

Quote:
Why did peoples throghout the earth feel the need to worship anything in the first place ?

Okay, so your contention is that you possess an inherent desire to worship something and that you don't see any other way this could have arisen.

My answer for this is simply biology, but I'm guessing that's not going to satisfy your curiosity. I'll just leave this for now and wait for someone more qualified to explain it. 

Quote:

You're moving beyond the meaning of Brian's original statement. The Furger Argorock is a mix of things that do exist, but the entity itself, the creature, when taken as a whole, does not, just like God. 

Quote:

CONGRATULATIONS!! 

.......on becoming a theist.

Congratulations for making the retarded, "You're a theist, you have faith," argument. Theists believe that a God actually exists. Just because I can imagine something, doesn't mean that I believe in it.  

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

Personally, I'm just going to laugh at you because you think a goat with six legs signifies the end of the world.

The 1st ammendment doesn't

The 1st ammendment doesn't mean the RRS has to let you post your psychotic rants over and over on here, fucktard. Go back to Club Cuckoo.
