Random Firings of Neurons

The rest of your life is going to be spent getting back up after life has knocked you down again. You might as well just get used to it.

Gonna piss off a few friends with this one....

Okay, so, I'm crawling around my kidnapped blog-son's site, and I slink through the comments on his post about the Italian atheist's fraud case being booted out of court by the judge. In the comments, Harvey said the Italian gave atheists a bad name.

Sorry, Harv. He didn't give atheists a bad name. Atheists' belief in the absurd gave them a bad name. In order to remain an atheist, one must:

1) Throw out the rules of logic.
2) Ignore any and all scientific evidence.
3) Deny the existence of ANY moral absolutes, such as "right" or "wrong", even those absolutes which they agree with.
4) Deny the existence of anything even remotely resembling "truth", even in their personal lives.
5) Consider themelves to be the apex of evolved life, all evidence to the contrary.
6) Be omniscient, omniopresent, and omnipotent.

In effect, in order for an atheist to remain an atheist, or even an agnostic, (I'm not going to futz around with the stupid semantics on this one) they have to elevate THEMSELVES to the god-status they have just spent their entire arguement denying the existence of. So, an atheist will ALWAYS argue that they don't exist. They can NOT exist, by their own very arguements.

So, please, feel free to do whatever you want to an atheist, because they don't exist in their own minds, so, you can't be punished, EVEN BY THEM, for anything you do to them.

That's only barely a joke. It's the logical extension of their arguements, taken to an absurd extreme. But, not THAT extreme. Atheism was the driving belief behind Communism, Fascism, and National Socialism. If those three movements considered atheism a good thing, shouldn't you think long and hard about it? Personally, once I found out Adolf Hitler breathed, I seriously considered not breathing any more.

Once you've rationally come to grips with the FACT that there is a god, THEN, we can argue about who that god is. Until then, you are irrational, illogical, and absurd. Sorry.
