The Stupid! It Burns! (Hat trick edition)

the stupid! it burns! What Do Atheists Have Faith In?
Atheists want us to prove, with empirical evidence, our belief in God’s existence, even though they are unable to demonstrate with scientific proof that God does not exist. This slight of hand is a bit disingenuous because we all know that no one can either prove or disprove God’s existence by scientific methods alone. ...

Most scientists would agree that Albert Einstein (1879-1955) was the greatest genius who ever lived. Since he believed in the existence of a Supreme Intelligence behind the universe, it makes one wonder why they feel so confident in denying God’s existence.

Atheists Call Christians Sociopaths
While I have to agree that there are some far out ‘religious’ movements in this country, I have yet to see [fundamentalist Christians] blowing up the atheist headquarters or cutting off the heads of disbelievers, so to compare Christians to terrorists is a bit of a stretch!

What's with all these angry atheists?
Anyway, at some point, these evangelical atheists (quite an oxymoron, isn’t it?) must just be trumping themselves up in an effort to feel superior. These are the same cretins who get upset when a religious group does something public (“Don’t force your religion on me!”) but then put as their email address I haven’t truly believed in God for years and years, but I’ve always felt a grudging respect for those who did. I’ve recently come to see that as a sort of character flaw in myself — that believers have something special that I am missing out on — something to be celebrated, not looked down upon.

As an antidote to the stupidity, Mother Jones interviews Jason Torpy, president of the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers.

Post a Comment

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.
