Happy National Atheist’s Day!

National Atheist's Day

National Atheist's Day

I would like to take a moment to celebrate all the Atheists out there. I admire your ability to deny a creator while living in His creation and I love the way you deny intelligent design by pointing to abiogenesis experiments that where designed by an intelligent scientist.

  1. There’s no better compliment than being called a fool by a fool.

    So thank you.

  2. Your welcome.

    I rank that compliment up there with being called irrational by an irrational person. But I think the old philosophy sums it up when it is said “it takes one to know one”.

    I really do enjoy your posts morsec0de and I hope you know that I do not consider you an average Atheist, and that IS a compliment.

  3. mcoville, that’s a compliment in the same way that “you’re not like all those other black people” is a compliment.

    morsec0de’s pretty average, as far as atheists go. he would fit in fine on the SMRT board, he’d raise no eyebrows on my blog, or any other atheism blog.

    the fact is, you have this weird stereotype of an atheist, given to you by the likes of ray comfort, that simply doesn’t exist. therefore, every atheist you meet will seem to “not be the average atheist*”.

    *”atheism” and “atheist” are not capitalized.

  4. My stereotype of atheists has been developed by years of interaction both online and in everyday situations. So far moresc0de has shown himself to be more open to discussing topics than a lot of the atheists I have encountered and that is why he is not an average atheist.

    Of course this is only my opinion and I could be wrong and it will probably change.

  5. Not all atheists think alike (except for denying God), I worked with an atheist for years who I could talk about creationism with, and God without the sort of things one sees like in PZ Meyers blog. Perhaps some day his heart will be opened.

  6. My name is Moya Anomalous, and after reading your blog, I think you would benefit greatly from my videos on YouTube. In fact, all of you would.

    However, this post is to you especially Mcoville. Lately, I have been searching for something to talk about and seeing how you have numerous topics, I feel my conversations with you would give me the inspiration.

    My YouTube account is:

    Please forgive me if I do not feel like debating. Though this is YouTube, I feel I should be able to treat it as television. Actors and actresses rarely debate the videos they produce, instead only leaving it to you and your friends to talk about. The same principle works here.

    I encourage you to leave comments below, however, so that others may reply to your comments.

    …with love.

  7. I would rather celebrate April Fools.

  8. are they not the same thing?

  9. Ha ha. You’re a bit of a div, aint you mcoville? You have been sucked in by the oldest trick in the book and you are flinging insults at rational, free-thinking people.

    I am sorry that you need the crutch of religion to get through life but calling people who question things properly fools is super childish.

  10. Sukey, who says that evolution is rational?

    Not much freedom amongst “free-thinkers” that attack religious beliefs. Are I not free to think about God?

  11. Oh, Sukey, you have no idea what you’re getting into. It makes quicksand look benevolent in comparison. Flee from this place while there’s still hope in your soul.

  12. come now zunedita, we are all friends here.

  13. @ mcoville
    Yeah, you are right. An invisible dude in the sky is much more rational. You are free to think about whatever you want but there’s no need for a deliberately sarcastic post. Religion has done a lot of damage over the years and free-thinkers are finally getting a word in edge-ways. Surely you don’t disagree with freedom of speech? Oh no, I remember, that’s exactly what you disagree with. As I said you are super childish.

    @zunedita373

    You are so right, I’m not coming back here. If I want an argument with daft circular logic I’ll talk to one of my friend’s kids. Although one of them did point at some dog poo the other day and said “Look Aunty Sue, god poo”. I laughed my ass off!

  14. Sukey, I love free speech. I served this country to defend free speech. I believe everyone has a right to speak their mind and voice their opinion.

    I also agree that religion has caused a lot of damage over the years and that needs to change. I would point out thought that free thinkers have always been around voicing their opinions… Thomas Jefferson, Dr. Martin Luthor King and Voddie Baucham to name a few.

    I do not see where you criticize me for name calling and then constantly call me names, the term double standards rings a bell. What names have I called you?

  15. Dear Mr Sarcastic,

    Your entire post is unnecessarily sarcastic. You started it – cos you are clearly childish. That’s why I called you childish. Please see your blog above mine to see where you called all atheists names; or in fact your ENTIRE post. Did you forget already? Please do not be surprised when people come right back at ya!

    Love,

    Sukey

  16. calling someone who ignore rational thought a fool is not name calling, it is descriptive of what they exhibit.

    I apologize for calling you a fool and hurting your feelings. I hope this makes you feel better about yourself.

  17. How exactly am I, or any atheists ignoring rational thought?

    Ha ha. Yep, that has made me feel a lot better, thanks. You probably don’t realise that I am not the slightest bit offended by your daft name calling but I’m sure your patronising little comment made you feel better about yourself. If you need that then take it; it’s no skin off my nose.
