I believe in fucktards

Fucktard Jared doesn't believe in atheism:
I don’t believe in atheism because of my experience in the military. I know there are those who attempt to refute the “no atheist in a foxhole” quip , but I lived it with men who claimed to be atheist, but when death appeared imminent they abandoned their atheism, only to return to it a few days later, when they were safe.

  1. Keyword here is "claimed".

  2. I think this is one of those things where an atheist says something like, "Oh my god!" in a moment of shock, and then they're not an atheist anymore.

    I've been working on removing those sorts of phrases from my vocabulary for 6 months now, and I gotta tell you, it's hard to undo 33 years of speech habits.

  3. I don't even bother. If some doofus wants to interpret a meaningless culturally-conditioned phrase as a change in my fundamental philosophy, what can I do? We still don't know how to grow new brain cells.

  4. I responded in kind to his daft post.

    "What about all those Muslims that pray to Allah before battle or when a suicide bombers prays to Allah before he kills himself and others? Does this make Islam true?

    Your comment is a personal insult to any atheist in the military and even if your own anecdotal experience was exactly as you stated, how does this apply to all atheists?

    I believe theists exist by the way. I just think your god concept is a product of your upbrining and your imagination."


    Oh and regarding that brain cells sentence, if I remember correctly it was discovered we can have some brain cell growth in adulthood. Arg. I forget where I read that.

  5. ... we can have some brain cell growth in adulthood.

    Yes, I remember reading the same thing. My comment was intended to be insulting, not rigorously scientifically accurate.

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.
