Frodo Lives

Or, one of the dumbest things any human being ever said … a comment on Bill O’Reilly’s blog

As for the comment on Atheists – keep in mind – by claiming to be an Atheist – a person is acknowledging the absolute and certain existence of God! Otherwise there would be no God to Not Believe In!

Snark away, troops. Just don’t forget — the real enemy is not God. It is Teh Stupid.

  1. I’m not an atheist. I’m an agnostic.
    And I don’t mean to speak for atheist’s, but, by this persons ‘thinking,’ if I don’t believe in the Loch Ness monster, like he/she does, I actually believe “Nessie” exists, otherwise I wouldn’t “think” about denying belief in “her” existence.
    I’ll disbelieve all you want if you pay for my trip to Scotland to prove that what I don’t believe in is what you believe is real to prove I don’t believe it’s real. Or, something to that effect…
    BTW – I don’t believe in golf, either… Can I get a few buck’s for a coouple of rounds since I don’t believe in that, too?
    How does this person remember to breathe? Oh yeah, they should thank their God that he/she/it made it an involunltary reflex.

  2. And of course there is a Santa Clause a Tooth Fairy an Easter Bunny, and a Chicago Cub Series Win. I’m sorry, all of those are actually true, except for the last one, of course.

  3. This guy has to be joking. Nobody can be that stupid! He has to be trying to one-up Douglas Adams.

    Now it is such a bizarrely impossible coincidence that anything so mind-bogglingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as a final and clinching proof of the nonexistence of God. The argument goes something like this:

    “I refuse to prove that I exist,” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.”

    “But,” say Man, “the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don’t. QED.”

    “Oh dear,” says God, “I hadn’t though of that” and promply vanishes in a puff of logic.

  4. Good grief, that’s infinitely stupid. And of course this Jeezus warrior doesn’t realize that by the same “reasoning” he is acknowledging the absolute and certain existence of Thor, Zeus, Ra, Quetzlcoatl etc. etc. etc.

  5. Somewhere way out there up in the sky
    Lives the entity of creation a most insidious lie
    Believe it or not truly these are your choices
    And those that believe are the ones who hear voices

    From time immemorial to one day in the past
    How is it possible for this story to last
    It is naked and its brazen in its lies and its shams
    How easily it’s perverted and often used in scams

    And now here we stand after thousands of years
    People still believe this shit it helps soothe their fears
    And just what exactly do we get in return
    A boatload of hypocrisy and watching witches burn

    It ostracizes the smart and punishes those who dare
    Its circular arguments makes religion beyond compare
    But this is exactly the very essence of its fault
    It stymies creativity and suppresses radical thought

    And lest we forget its other pernicious aspects too
    It causes many wars just ask an Arab or a Jew
    And woe on to women the glorious mothers of this earth
    Who have been wronged by religion since the day of their birth

    Genital mutilation proves that religion is not so grand
    It shows all to clearly that this shit is out of hand
    And now after the glorious 8 incredible years of Bush
    We realize that religion also turns your brains to mush

    So next time you’re in church kneeling down to pray
    Think about it clearly think it through all the way
    Just what exactly are you gaining what do you truly get
    Or are your brains so petrified you still believe this shit

  6. I refuse to be called an atheist because I will not be identified in terms of religion or religious belief. I am not an a-theist because I don’t even accept the concept of a deity or “higher power” so why should I be identified in terms of a concept I don’t accept?

    Calling oneself an atheist admits a willingness to be identified in the terminology of religion. It might be easy to snark this guy but consider the word atheist itself and ask yourself why you want to even be identified in the language of something you claim doesn’t exist?

  7. I’d be tempted to say that the commenter must be a child, because this kind of “logic”/fantasy thinking is what I remember playing with as a kid. But alas…

    In other areas of right wing fantasy space, TeaBaggers Plan to Protest the Detroit Auto Show. That’s right, they’re mad that the government bailed out the car industries, mad that their neighbors still have jobs. I wish I could find a DONATE button to help out their glorious cause.

  8. I’ve been continually reading and re-reading that statement for the past 6 hours and I still haven’t figured out whether it’s the stupidest or the most profound statement I’ve ever read.

  9. Moonbat, that Detroit protest could get ugly. They could end up as actual teabags in the Rouge River. That area has an abysmal unemployment rate.

  10. God doesn’t believe in Bill O’Reilly either. Ever since Jesus has been excusing his followers of sinning (instead of just forgiving) and giving said sinners self-perceived superpowers over liberalism and it’s close cousin communist islamism, things have been all wonky.

    And why the hell are the liberal Christians more peaceful, forgiving, spiritual, loving, accepting of differing points of view… and less likely to whine about being persecuted (even with all the purges from their wingnut ‘brethren’), than those wingnut brethren?

  11. There’s a wingnut website that wants to undo the separation of Church and State called Naturally they link to teabatters. From that site they quote Thomas Jefferson:

    “God who gave us life gave us liberty.”

    The web site left out this bit – an exerpt of which Congress saw fit to carve in marble at the the Jefferson Monument:

    “…as every sect believes its own form the true one, ever one perhaps hoped for his own, but especially the Episcopalians and Congregationalists. The returning good sense of our country threatens abortion to their hopes and they believe that any portion of power confided to me will be exerted in opposition to their schemes. And they believe rightly for I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

    IMO, the basic decency of most Christians is to their credit – the stupidity of some should be an embarrassment. But the lust for power by a few Christians who would impose their narrow philosophy on all is a pure abomination.

  12. No God to not believe in? Precisely!

    There are infinitely many ways for there to be one god, but there is only one way for there to be none.
