How To Suck At Atheism

WARNING: the link I have supplied contains crass references and foul language, which isn't surprising when it's come from an anti-Christian source. This one got my attention because it features most of the popular anti-Christian memes that Village Atheists toss around the internet, ad infinitum.

My answer is:

 How To Suck At Atheism

1. Assume all believers are judgmental.

2. Assume Christianity has held back scientific advancement, in spite of visionaries like Isaac Newton, Galileo, and even Georges Lemaitre.

3. Assume teaching your child the family's faith tradition is tantamount to forcing dogma on them.

4. Adopt a cartoonish unrealistic worldview of Christians.

5. Assume religious believers fear sex.

6. Pretend that anybody who mentions God is "forcing their religion down your throat".

7. Lump all religions in one basket and ignore the great differences between them.

8. Convince yourself that you're nothing more than a purposeless "bag of meat", a completely insignificant accident, despite your internal wiring that tells you otherwise.

9. Focus 99% of your hatred on Christianity but use the terms "religion" or "theism" to make it look like you're being more fair.

10. Spend hours on the internet trying to badger people into believing the same crapola you've been indoctrinated with.

Fascism Is Alive And Well With Atheist Crowd

Once more, that wonderful atheist activist non-profit organization, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, is  taking its Wisconsin liberal political views and shoving them down other peoples' throats.

This time, they got mad at Ball State University letting assistant Physics professor Eric Hedin discuss the limits of science and the proposition of Intelligent Design as an argument.

Remember, this is a university, and it was an honors course... completely voluntary attendance.

You know how this works. Some atheist either attended the seminar or else heard about it from another atheist, and then complained to the FFRF to put a stop to this terrible injustice.

It is not a course on Intelligent Design, but even mentioning this taboo subject is so offensive to thin-skinned atheists, that they must immediately hunt down an attorney to make sure this horrendous crime against humanity is stopped dead.

Atheists like to call themselves "freethinkers", yet they seem to take great joy in limiting the expression of politically incorrect ideas in the public arena. How can a person arrive at a decision on something if "freethinkers" effectively censor ideas that they find offensive?

Evidently freedom of thought is just a thin disguise over fascism, as propagated by liberals who will not tolerate opposing points of view.

So you atheists think Intelligent Design is intellectual doo-doo? Fine. Let the subject be discussed. If you liberals are all for an open forum of ideas, then LET THE IDEAS BE PRESENTED and let the hearers make their own judgement as to the merit of those ideas.

THAT is what a free exchange is all about.

Grow up, atheists.

Just For Laughs: The New American Atheist Monument

Here we go again... American Atheists lost their bid to get a 10 Commandments monument removed from a Florida courthouse, but they were allowed to put up their own tribute to Atheism, which looks like this:

According to David Silverman, the current President of American Atheists, his objection to the 10 Commandments monument was:

“There is no secular purpose for the monument whatsoever and it makes atheists feel like second-class citizens."

The origin of the moral codes behind our system of laws has no secular purpose? And what about the mentioning of God makes an Atheist feel like a second class citizen? There is nothing specific in that 10 Commandments monument that attacks the non-religious.

Unfortunately, the same can't be said about the American Atheists bench.

Ironically, this 3/4 ton granite masterpiece (which looks like the full-sized rendition of a model made from Lego play bricks), is more of a monument to the nerny-nerny boo-boo attitude of a bunch of sore losers.

It is festooned with old, overused, cherry-picked anti-religious quotes from Founding Fathers like John Adams (who in reality was a deeply faithful man of prayer). It also prominently features this gem from Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the founder of American Atheists:

"An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An Atheist believes that a deed should be done instead of a prayer said. An Atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty banished, war eliminated."

Let's look at this quote more closely.

"An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church."

Ms. O'Hair chose to ignore the fact that The Church was among the first to build hospitals.

"An Atheist believes that a deed should be done instead of a prayer said."

Ms. O'Hair didn't bother to mention how many great deeds were preceded by prayers. 

"An Atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death."

And Christians aren't? Does American Atheists to this day realize what a silly assumption this is?

"He wants disease conquered, poverty banished, war eliminated."

So did Jesus. The difference is, Christians actually get out and do the work. Ironically, the Salvation Army has no atheistic counterpart.

I still cannot understand why American Atheists idolizes Madalyn O'Hair. She was an intolerant, hot-tempered pottymouth who was fleecing American Atheists for all the money she could get her hands on. She was hardly the saint and martyr that she is portrayed to be, as was revealed by her son, William, who she kicked to the curb after he became a Christian pastor.

But free speech is free speech, and if American Atheists wants to waste their money in this fashion, so be it.

I just wonder how many kids could have been fed by the cost of this one bench.

'Nuff said.
