Subject: BS: There aren't any Gods (not even Jesus)
From: GUEST,Ed.
Date: 30 Nov 07 - 05:22 PM

I'm terribly sorry to have to break this to you, and the fact that you make up a fairly large proportion of the world's population makes it hard, but I have a duty to tell the truth.

Deep breath... God does not exist

If anyone can give me decent evidence as to why I'm wrong, I'd like to here it, along with something more substantial than "mysterious ways"

Everyone has a choice of what to believe...I suggest that as long as they have fully studied all the religions available and made a considered decision as a result..then how can they be wrong? Are you sure you are right? What is the evidence which led you to this conclusion?

"Can you prove "God does not exist", Ed??? I mean, you are the one who has made the statement... Seems that the burden of proof falls on you, pal..."

Sorry, Bobert, but no-one can prove a negative. The "burden of proof" still lies with the theist. I suppose, strictly speaking, he should start with the 'null hypothesis' (ie. there is no God) and then consider the evidence (if there is any) to the contrary.

If, on the other hand, the theist maintains that he relies on 'faith', and needs no proof, then he cannot demand any sort of proof from the atheist and there are no grounds for discussion. Nevertheless, if the theist resorts to these tactics he cannot demand that the atheist either share or respect his 'faith'.
I suppose this explains why some theists have used, and are still using, violence, or the threat of it, to get their own way.

Of course he's present when sex is going on, Foolestroupe! God is supposed to be omnipresent, correct? That means everywhere. Not just somewhere, everywhere.

That almost works with Bob Dylan, but not quite. I distinctly remember one or two situations I was in and Bob wasn't there. It almost works with Shatner too....but again, just short by a whisker.

But here's what I really think about it. People who start provocative, useless threads like this one should be doomed to eternal harassment by people exactly like themselves, but with precisely the opposite outward beliefs! Judgmental, self-righteous pests with a zeal to convert, in other words.

I have a duty to tell the truth

Sometimes it's hard to tell the diff between a duty and a doodie. This sounds to me like a diaperful of the latter.

(Or perhaps alcohol is involved here?)

In any case, most of the grownups around here tend not to yell FIRE in pubs. Oh, one CAN do that-- just as one can start a thread proclaiming either "There aren't any Gods (not even Jesus)" or (as I am sometimes tempted), "Atheists are Ignorant and Often Rude."

But if IRL we tend not to do these things, sometimes emulating one's IRL restraint is a good thing, even at Mudcat (the apparent portal into the absurd).

GUEST,Ed better watch his step, there!

He's obviously unaware that God has been stirring to activity lately. After all, He registered His disapproval of the filming of The Passion of the Christ by zapping the guy playing Jesus (James Caviezel) with a bolt of lightning. That's a fact! Not only that, He let the assistant director have it twice! Now, why He didn't go after Mel Gibson is a mystery to me, but then, who am I to argue with God!??

GUEST,Ed is risking a lightning bolt up the arse!
