The Stupid! It Burns! (1% edition)

the stupid! it burns! After something of a drought, the stupid valve is back on full open!

No Respect for Atheists: Revised Version:
[A]n atheist believes in no absolutes except the absolute belief that there is no superior being. He cannot see a God; therefore there is no God.

I cannot see Rome but somehow I still think it is there! I cannot see electricity and many have faced calamity for that very reason! I cannot see air but that won’t stop me from breathing it! ...

Why is the atheistic position untenable?

I ask you, the reader, atheist or not, "What per cent of the world's knowledge do you have?"

Do you have less than 10%? Less than 5%? Less than 1%? I am sure you would agree that anyone who says they have more than 1% of the world's knowledge has already declared oneself as a supreme being and therefore it is not possible to have discussion with that one! He has already declared himself to BE God!
All emphasis, including inconsistent emphasis, is original. It just goes downhill from there.

Earth Shattering Update: Charles Pedley strikes back with a biting rejoinder:
Right now the god of atheism is in the form of Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens. ...

So the Supreme Beings right now, are Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens. There may be others but those are the Supremes.

So atheists believe Richard and Christopher, while I and many other Christians and Jews believe God as our supreme being.
Huh. I thought I was the Supreme Being. Go figure. And yes, all emphasis is original. It's more true if it's highlighted in yellow, dontcha know. I'm surprised he didn't use ALL CAPS!

  1. My ignorance of life-the-Universe-&-Everything is so great as to put me near the top of the ignorance pile. But I'm still heads above anyone silly enough to think there is a psychotic sky-fairy who cares what you do with a penis and then has the gall to say S/He/IT is the creator of the universe and needs everyone to love S/He/IT.
    Are you really sure Rome exits? It may be imaginary as it is the home of a devil.

    Funny how the people advancing this argument never use it to argue for anything other than a god. The possibilities are limitless...

  3. The possibilities are limitless...

    Sadly, the bullshit postmodernists and radical epistemic relativists have already discovered these possibilities.

    It's how you can tell what a deep thinker Pastor Mike Stahl is.

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.
