You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

I heard that naturalistic evolution doesn’t like gays, hence evolution gears us for SURVIVAL and REPRODUCTION. That darn darwinism being so anti-gay.
I also heard that the unconscious, unintelligent, purposeless, meaningless, valueless natural universe that atheists follow doesn’t care about whether or not humanity lives or dies.
So where can I debate arrogant atheists who think “naturedidit” is a plausible explanation for the nature of reality?
Let me try the forums. Maybe I will meet the typical village atheists who think all Christians are stupid.
The purpose of the comments section is the comment on the post itself, not posting tired rhetoric that anyone with Google could find an answer to. (Well, unless it’s related to the original post at least.)
Well, Pat Robertson did steer Hurricane Gloria away from Virginia. Of course it hit New York instead, but who’s counting.
Indeed. After all, we have places like Christchurch in New Zealand to remind us of the “truth” of the second caption above. 185 dead from the February 2011 earthquake, plus the spire of the Christchurch cathedral was ruined. It’s all part of God’s plan, right? Right?
Well gee, there are 1500 species of animals that have same-sex interactions. Nature has nothing against teh gayz.
Where to debate them? I suggest in the privacy of your bedroom, alone, offline, the phone off the hook, with some lube.
Nature has nothing to say period. You would think this guy, who has a real gripe against “unconscious, unintelligent, purposeless, meaningless, valueless natural universe” being a explanation for anything would realize such a universe would have nothing against the gheyz. Consistency? What’s that?
And he thinks he’s smarter than us. lol.
You’re clueless, son! Completely clueless! You wouldn’t have a clue if somebody *faxed* it to you. You couldn’t catch a clue if you stripped naked and soaked your pallid hide in clue musk, then did the clue mating dance in a field full of horny clues during the height of clue mating season!
What meaning do you expect your delusional self-important statements of unknowing, inexperienced opinion to have with us? What fantasy do you hold that you would believe that your tiny-fisted tantrums would have more weight than that of a leprous desert rat, spinning rabidly in a circle, waiting for the bite of the snake?
I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid so stupid that it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Your writing has to be a troll. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know. I’m sorry. I can’t go on. This is an epiphany of stupid for me.
Luckily it’s only likely to be a class I hurricane, but it will drive the sews cycle to review Bush’s response to Katrina and so close to 9/11, it’s going to remind people of W’s ineptitude and then maybe we’ll remember who started the wars that caused the collapse. It’s just a string of bad press dominoes for poor Mitt & Paul.
I don’t think think any one need wrath over the gays, abortionists and liberals. There own wrath is enough to burn themselves. And, yes, all the way to bankruptcy Ameriica. Your enemies are waiting. Join Europe with the long unemployment queues.
No debate is necessary with the brainwashed. Just say your piece. The audacity of these godless people classifying agnostics and freethinkers with themselves.
You just have to laugh :) confirmation bias is alive and well in such Christian thinking!
Luckily, all of the believers I know and love are immune to such loopiness
Hey LC prove the “all Christians are stupid” atheists wrong, post something intelligent.
You’re really not helping the ‘Christians aren’t stupid’ cause.
Not running on all 8 cylinders, are we?
Not clear on the concepts, are we?

That’s right, the universe doesn’t care about humanity. We are not the center of “creation.” To the universe, we are not all special snowflakes and it wouldn’t make a damn difference in the vast universe whether or not we survived. Of course, that makes it all the more important that we care about each other. I don’t need to the universe (or some personified version of it) to care about humanity; I care about humanity.
Hey Agnostic, I’m an agnostic atheist. Oh the audacity I have to classify myself with myself.
Actually, I do hope to move to Europe if this country keeps going down the conservative tubes. I didn’t choose to be born in backward-ass Texas, but I can certainly choose to leave once I have the resources.
Hurricane intensity can shift from category 1 to 3 in a matter of hours, or dissipate to tropical depression that quickly for that matter. They can shift direction in hours too.
However, if it does hit the convention, I was thinking of posting “God hates the GOP”, so they better understand the venom they shoot whenever they invoke God in their rationalization of tragedies.
They all died in their homes when bridges collapsed on them due to the underfunding of our basic infrastructure in the name of Randistic ideology.
Don’t hold back, J.B. Tell us what you really think.
I am definitely saving “tiny-fisted tantrums” to use in other places. That’s some great picture-painting there.
Thanks for stopping by…don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.
I feel like you’re saying that only gay people can give birth to gay people… Otherwise wouldn’t homosexuality no longer exist? Yet, it has existed for thousands of years as well as being observed in other species in the animal kingdom. Seems like you need to speak to all those straight people having gay children and tell them to knock it off.
Also seems like atheists place a higher value on human life because we know you don’t get another chance and we do not want to take that away from another human being. Unlike the religious who are the ones killing those who don’t agree with them. Explain to me how that shows caring about whether or not humanity lives or dies.
I was in an especially jovial mood.
