Florien Finds a Fucktard

Daniel Florien of Unreasonable Faith presents bwinwright's fucktardery on Allvoices:
[A]theism is a false idea because it is based on the false premise that orderliness does not require intelligent direction.
His proof?
I ask them to give me a single example of anything, outside of what they call nature, that came into being without intelligent direction. Of course, they can not. Everything manufactured by man required intelligent direction, right?
It's not all bad, though. "[D]ueling with atheists has made me a more patient, accepting, and loving person." 'Tis a pity it didn't make him any smarter.

    And I ask him to give me a single provable example of anything outside of nature, period.

  3. That sentence read to me as really stupid at first, as I was thinking of "nature" as in naturalism, in which case a naturalist obviously wouldn't be able to name anything. It took me a few seconds to realize that he probably means "nature" as in forests and stuff.

    It's still pretty stupid, though, as most people use that sense of "natural" to mean something close to, "not the result of human manufacturing," in which case the sentence is roughly the same as, "I ask them to give me a single example of a square circle."

    On an unrelated note, "Florien Finds a Fucktard" sounds like the title of a Doctor Seuss book.

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
