So I'm randomly browsing around and I come across this:

Somebody please tell me that is satire. 'Cause that web page has every single one of the stupidest objections to atheism.

[quote]The atheist and his atheism.
keywords: atheism, God, atheist, Jesus, agnostic, Christianity, religion, philosophy
Atheism is defined by Webster's New World Dictionary as, "1. the belief that there is no God, or denial that God or gods exist. 2. godlessness". An atheist, therefore, is a person who believes that there is no God.[/quote]
Yeah, like a dictionary written by a fundie is a good source.
Atheism isn't the belief there's no god, it's the lack of belief in a god. They're different.
[quote]But what does the Bible say?[/quote]
Yeah, like the Bible is a reliable source.
[quote]The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.
PSALMS XIV:I[/quote]
And how the fuck does quoting a 2000-year-old book disprove anything?
[quote]Atheism is a belief system that ardently denies the existence of God.[/quote]
Bullshit. I'm not gonna repeat myself.
[quote]God calls the atheist a FOOL.[/quote]
I'm pretty sure Allah and Vishnu would call Christians FOOLS also (yes, with big capital letters because writing things in uppercase makes them true).
[quote]Many atheists spend much time and effort attempting to "disprove" that God exists. According to Romans chapter 1 they know that He exists, but they want to control their own lives and not submit to the Lord.[/quote]
Again, quoting 2000-year-old books does not make something axiomatically true.
[quote]They are actually rather tragic figures just like any other unsaved individual.[/quote]
Bahaha. This shit is ridiculous.
[quote]It is hard to live out their atheism--if they did, they'd actually be considered crazy like O'Hair was.[/quote]
So Ayn Rand, Jean-Paul Sartre, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, etc. didn't/aren't "living out" their atheism?
[quote]The atheist's RELIGION (which is simply a system of beliefs based on a philosophy) of atheism[/quote]
Funny how even [url=]the fundie dictionary definition of a religion[/url] clearly excludes atheism.
[quote] is simply a way to try to block out and override the truth--the ol' ostrich-head-in-the-sand technique:
If you try to tell 'em the truth, they say "Shut up!"
stick their heads in the ground and shout--
"There's nobody there,
there's nobody there,
there's nobody there, I tell you!
See, I can't see 'em!"[/quote]
I gotta say, thanks very much for the chuckle.
[quote]Well, atheist reader, Somebody is there and His truth has stood from the beginning of time and will continue for all eternity. God is not dependent on you in any way.[/quote]
What the fuck.
[quote]Blasphemies, wars, famines, and political appointments come and go, but when the dust settles, there's Jesus. And there is nothing you can do about it but breathe out hot air. You will humble yourself before the Lord Jesus or you will be ground to powder.
And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
--Jesus Christ
Matthew 21:44[/quote]
Oh, yes, I'm gonna abandon my atheism right this moment, after reading that.
[quote]Most atheists have what I call the Don Quixote Syndrome. Let me explain. Cervantes wrote a book about Don Quixote a long time ago. Don Quixote would attack windmills as if they were his enemies. Of course a windmill is nobody's enemy. If what the atheist believes is REALLY his belief, then he would leave people like me alone.[/quote]
Yes, like your beliefs haven't caused all sorts of conflicts and problems around the world.
And most atheists including myself don't have a problem with deists despite the differing beliefs, so that completely shreds the "argument".
[quote]After all, if God did not exist, He and His followers would be no enemy to the atheist. We'd just be deluded people.[/quote]
Delusions cause harm, which is why a lot of atheists are also anti-theists.
[quote]Therefore IF the atheist REALLY believes there is no God and the fool attacks a Christian, then he has the Don Quixote Syndrome because the Christian is not his enemy. Nevertheless, God is real and THAT is why atheists have all these organizations and debates to "prove" that God does not exist. Atheist reader, if you would just be true to what you purport to believe, then you wouldn't have the Don Quixote Syndrome.[/quote]
Honestly this is too idiotic to merit anything close to a rebuttal.
[quote]My old pastor once ministered to an old atheist who had been a card-carrying atheist for decades--but as he laid on his death bed, he wanted a pastor. I don't know if he got saved or not.[/quote]
1. An atheist on his deathbed wanted a pastor.
2. Therefore atheism is false.
[quote]When it's time to die, many atheists are understandably uneasy and those that aren't should be terrified.[/quote]
Steaming bullshit.
[quote]There is hope for the atheist. He can be saved. In fact, there are plenty of atheists that have come to Jesus Christ. I refuse to argue with them, but will answer honest questions. Unfortunately, many atheists ignorantly say hard things against the Lord Jesus Christ and His people. Don't let fancy titles and big words shake your faith in the One who holds your eternal destiny.[/quote]
More meaningless preaching.
[quote]Think about this: What does the atheist have to offer you? Eternal life? Spiritual comfort? Love? Kindness? Comfort in the midnight hour when no one is around? No, none of these. He has nothing to offer you but blasphemy, hell fire and the wrath of God.[/quote]
Another steaming pile of shit that I can't be bothered refuting.
[quote] The atheist will tell you fabulous fairy tales like
you were spontaneously generated from a rock,[/quote]
Ignorance about abiogenesis does not make an argument.
[quote] a monkey is your daddy,
a fish is your cousin,[/quote]
Absolute ignorance of evolution.
[quote]you have no hope,
you should just live for today,
when you're dead, you're dead.[/quote]
[quote]If you follow their ignorant advice and die without Christ, you WILL forever regret it and you will remember that someone told you the truth and you scoffed.[/quote]
Argument from intimidation.
[quote]Atheists try their hardest to argue a fact that is firmly established--God is real. You cannot look on His creation and its ways and honestly deny it.[/quote]
Saying something doesn't make it axiomatically true.
[quote]I won't argue that 2+2=4 and I won't argue that God exists. An atheist once wrote and said, "2+2 is not necessarily 4". Well, write any other number on your math test and see if you get it right.[/quote]
This...this is a proof of God's existence?
[quote]The bottom line is that atheism is a false belief system composed of fools--it's not new--the Bible told us about atheism thousands of years ago. Is there a real atheist? No. The closest thing to it is someone who has told themselves a lie so many times that they begin to believe it's true.[/quote]

Phew, that was long, but at the same time outrageously hilarious.

Okay, this site is also

Okay, this site is also disgusting - [url=]Objective: 4 Kidz[/url]

Actually the entire site is absolutely idiotic - some quotes from the [url=]Members[/url]:

[quote]As an accountant, he has to deal daily with the soulless secular world and so he takes great pleasure in putting his knowledge of accountancy to use in the righteous cause of Our Lord. If you ever need your taxes filed, come see Tim. He gives a 5% discount for all Christians and 10% discount for non-Christians willing to convert on the spot.[/quote]

[quote]He has lead successful boycotts against Sears and Piggly-Wiggly and has spearheaded the movement to stop Evolutionism from being forced on the children of Marian County. His experience in dealing with secularism's desperate grasp on power has proved invaluable as we move into the next phase of our campaign.[/quote]

[quote]Considered one of the foremost in the new school of Baptist demon exorcism specialists, Dr. Franklin has battled Satan up close and personal on many occasions, yet he always manages to come through unscathed thanks to the power of Christ.[/quote]

Actually browsing through the entire website sets my bullshit detector off.

[quote]He has lead successful boycotts against Sears [/quote]

Hey! Hey! Hey!.... I work for Piece of Shit Sears. I can see Sears letting him win, they'll do anything for a customer.


I sent him this:

Dear Mr. Carlson or Whom it may concern,

I'll keep my following name unknown to you and made a "special" email address to use to message you. You may ask why, Its because after looking at your site I have came to the conclusion that you are in fact, ignorant and don't feel like you harassing my real email. I, Mr. Carlson, am a what you "hate". I am a profound atheist. Im part of websites that express free thought and not of "hate speech" as you may say. I wanted to go over some of your mistakes. Like for example

"The Internet was created by the United States of America - a Christian nation"
Sir... This IS NOT a CHRISTIAN NATION. Yes this might hurt your feelings, but it is true. We are a nation of ALL religions and not of the MAJORITY. I am equal as well as you.

"and should not be used to spread anti-Christian, secular, or non-Christian propaganda and hate speech"

I. United States DONEST OWN the INTERNET.
II. The Internet was the FREEDOM OF SPEECH as well as RELIGION.
III. As a Christian, your job is not to attack to ones who do not believe. Jesus didn't say "take all of a mans rights for not believing in God". If he did, then I'll have to attack you for being an idiot.

"This is our Internet, and we should exercise our position as its owners and as the guardians of civilization to stop its misuse"

I. If its OURS then I have to right to stop ignorance of your site
II. Guardians of Civilization? What are you talking about? Are you trying to make any sense of yourself?
III. Stop its misuse? Are you the Police/FBI/CIA/DEA Mr. Carlson?

Well, thank you for your consideration.

Ya know, the makers of this website would probably have similar, less offensive comments in response for what you say.
