This is just too much awesome to pass up. Probably a parody site, but well worth tackling seriously. Frank (Ignorant Christian) writes:
I’ve been thinking for a long time why liberals don’t beleve in God. Here’s what I learnt:
This is going to be extra special, so I’m going to go through point by point.
They don’t understand, but they never let that stop them!
Don’t understand what exactly? God? Theology wouldn’t exist as a branch of human study if anyone understood God and the philosophical implications of such a being perfectly. That said, notice the lack of a supporting statement. Frank just makes a flat claim, then leaves it hanging in the air, waiting expectantly for nods of approval from his audience.
Science. They think it replaced God somehow. They think sceince has all the answers. They think if they can anser questions with mumbo jumno that’s the only reason for God, instead of understanding God made this world. Real science keeps proving God over and again, but there’s a lot of psuedo science out there. Whatch out for anyone who tells you the world is somthing crazy like a billion years old, or dinosaurs could fly. But they keep having new laws of nature, handd down by God the law maker himslf. How can you have a law without someone to make that law, like the Sabbath.
What real science proves God exists? The fundamentalists who play dress up in lab coats and explain that God exists because bananas fit in our hands? Science is about repeatable, testable theories. How do you test if God exists? Do we stick a piece of holy litmus in the air and wait for it to turn blue? I do dig his point about laws though. Who enforces gravity anyway? Let’s all break the law of gravity now!
It’s new and trendy. I read a good quote it said “People today are atheists not because of conviction but from indifference, distraction and confusion accelerated by mass media. Truth is not a democracy. Test the message.”
New? There have been atheists since we’ve had recorded history. The emergence of the monotheistic traditions that gave birth to Christianity are relatively recent. The arrogance in his statement about conviction, again, offered not only without evidence, but in the presence of a mountain of contradictory evidence, simply underscores how utterly divorced from reality Frank is.
They feel popular.
This might be my favorite. Yes, people become atheists to become more electable and generally well liked. The fact is atheists are despised and seen as untrustworthy by far far too many in this society.
They don’t have to folow any rules. Big selling point for librals.
A handy little lie. The idea that ethics come only from a Daddy figure in the sky telling us how to behave. We can form our own ideas on ethics and morality, and live by them just as well without some concept of God who is “gonna getcha” during the afterlife if you misbehave now. If anything I’d question how moral we can be if we outsource our own ethical reponsibilities to God.
They think God id boring. Not as fun as drugs and grand theft auto.
I guess non existent beings are kinda boring, huh?
Ignorance. Some of the critics on this web blog say they were born as athiests and never grew out of it.
Shame huh, some people weren’t indoctrinated into a religion when they were minors? I guess knowing your own personal history does kinda count as ignorance in a bizarro sort of way.
They think God is a bully or something. I dunno how they can not believe in God and hate him at the same time?
You can hold the Biblical account of God to the fire. This is a God who kills entire towns, and has the negative traits of jealousy and anger.
Ignorance. Libtards love to say “thats a strawman falsify” and the God they try to talk about is one to. They make up all kinds of things they don’t like, call it God, and then use that like it proves anything.
Ignorance, the point so good (and ironic) he had to hit it twice. Again, with the lack of specifics.
Personality disordered. Athiests are always mad, you ever notice that? They can only decribe themselves being against something. God is always there.
Atheists mad? Dear lord! What delightful nuttery. Atheism is simply not believing in God. It is not an active belief like “I am against God”. It is a simple lack of belief, usually due to a resounding lack of evidence.
Liberals are united by the desire to make the world a better place for everyone, including (gasp) the meek. This is a feeling and a calling shared by the very deity worshiped by Frank. Perhaps in his rush to condemn the scary people who don’t share his religious fervor and hate of science/reason, he forgot that.
p.s. For the curious, I myself am a liberal theist.
