You are speaking out of ignorance and are attempting to portray that stupid argument "both sides require faith"...which is a truly and unbelievably
ignorant thing to say. Atheists don't have a god; it is not "randomness" and we do not worship it.
I have already linked to this video a few times, but I suggest you watch it (but I bet you won't because you are too cool for school.):
Maybe you'll open your eyes for once.
Also what purpose did your comment have regarding my OP? It seems you just wanted to do some bashing yourself. Good for you, let that theologian anger
I don't see where I was bashing anyone.
I watched your video and it didn't explain to me anything that I haven't heard from atheists before.
My eyes are wide open thank you very much. That is why I don't follow any religion. That includes Atheism, which is very much a religion. I never
said you worship randomness.
There is that rudeness atheists have rearing its ugly head again. I thought we moved past that on page one. As far as my off topic posts, I would ask
that you see that I was merely replying to another post. One that you must have mistakenly skipped over or the posts that Republican08 and I shared on
pages 1 and 2 that you seemed to not have a problem with.
I know it is very nice and attractive, but I must ask you to get off my butt.
"Randomness is the atheists God."
"They can't explain how it all started so instead of saying God did it they just say that it was a chain of random occurences."
If you call randomness my god you are asserting it is similar to the god religious people believe in, and that usually entails worship. Perhaps you
didn't mean it that way, but that's what it breaks down to - for me ofcourse. For me that also carries over as 'bashing' because you have no
backing for the statement but you made it as if it was true. I don't really care though - again perhaps you weren't intentional in that sense, but
your making a joke out of Atheism - which specifically means "not theist", therefore how can Atheists have a god, regardless of whether it is a
long-haired hippy or "randomness". This is bashing...but it makes little difference.
Atheism is not religion. You can say what you want, but unless you provide facts and evidence to support that claim, no one will agree with you
(except ofcourse born-agains and evangelicals, and that sort).
If you think I am being rude, I don't really care - you aren't providing a thoughtful approach to your stance regarding both my OP and now this
"randomness" garbage - if you can only get upset as a reaction to my responses and not add anything constructive, maybe it's time to look at a
different thread eh?
As for being off-topic - it is. However, I am not allowed to agree with someone? I am not starting a new argument (atleast I didn't intend to), I
just was thanking John and the other poster for their comments, and wanted to add a bit to it. It ofcourse is off-topic, but I see nothing wrong with
You went off-topic to simply assert some silly fact
about Atheists that you contrived yourself - that is off-topic, but it is not adding to the
discussion, because your intention from the get go was to apply your view and not back it. That warrants being addressed in my opinion. Whine about it
if you like, but it is what it is.
Your ignorance reminds me of religious people - you sure you aren't one?
