Ha. Good One.

Cure Faith lists “7 reasons why becoming an atheist sucks.”

Best part is here:

7. You dumb.

You have to admit you were horribly deluded. You might just have to dissect your lost faith inside and out, and maybe start a blog to lure others into the bleak reality you have discovered. What’s worse is that all the faithful are exposed as the infected they have always been. Like waking from your stupor amongst the flesh eating zombie hoard, you are not in a better place!

    Who the hell put that damn drunk atheist in my zombie stash?

    Riffing off that idea. You not only dumb because of that reason but if you grew up (as I did) in a fundamentalist Christian family, then you dumb because you just don’t know stuff.

    I have, at best, a high school education in matters of science. I’m working on understanding a lot more than I do now, but still I don’t think I’ll quite recover from that many years of ignorance.

    • Johan Meyer

      Get a ‘cliff notes’ or comparable (non-calculus) introduction to physics, chemistry and biology, and do the problems. Then move on to calculus – first ordinary derivatives, then integrals (expect to put 3-5 months into each), then partial derivatives and then differential equations – the ‘magic’ of the sciences will become far more logical, ordered, and actually quite cool.

      Everything that Johan said. I just reviewed a semesters worth of Physics in one month; it can be done if you put yourself to the task, if you want it badly enough.

      Also, familiarize yourself with some of the fundamental laws of nature, like the laws of thermodynamics, or Newtons laws. Spend some time mulling over them, and what they imply and what they mean. Observe the world around you, and apply those laws to your observations; you’ll see that your observations comply with the laws. Once you’re comfortable with that, move the time scale back, and begin to anticipate what will happen in a situation when you apply the laws to it.

      Suddenly, the whole of the universe will begin to make sense.

      Until you dive into quantum mechanics… … good luck with that!

      Tch, as if proper grammar has a place when calling someone dumb.

      In fact, I’m just gonna say:

      You dum.

      HAH! No B!

      • The Lorax

        I see your -b, and raise you a -yo.:

        u dum

          Hmm, touche.

          I was thinking about doing that, actually, and you beat me. The only thing I can do now is concede-

          HA NO! udm

          I don’t think that can be any further reduced. I am winner! :p

    I love how without god, we have a “bleak reality.” If you want to call living a non-deluded lifestyle “bleak reality,” go right ahead. But, you’re just like a druggie or a drunk, you need “a little sumpin’” to get you through your day…

    Gods are for people who can’t handle reality.
