Atheism is just wrong concept nothing else

    According to aethism is only a wrrong and illogical concept. We can not say that there is no God. How could this be possible? Does this whole great universe made at its own? Did a human make itself?

      Shakeelz, for as long as this world goes on, there will always be Aethists. I have noticed though that sometimes it takes something extraordinary to happen in their life and then they believe there is a God. smile

            WORD HISTORY:
            An agnostic does not deny the existence of God and heaven but holds that one cannot know for certain whether or not they exist. The term agnostic was fittingly coined by the 19th-century British scientist Thomas H. Huxley, who believed that only material phenomena were objects of exact knowledge. He made up the word from the prefix a-, meaning "without, not," as in amoral, and the noun Gnostic. Gnostic is related to the Greek word gnosis, "knowledge," which was used by early Christian writers to mean "higher, esoteric knowledge of spiritual things"; hence, Gnostic referred to those with such knowledge. In coining the term agnostic, Huxley was considering as "Gnostics" a group of his fellow intellectuals"ists," as he called themwho had eagerly embraced various doctrines or theories that explained the world to their satisfaction. Because he was a "man without a rag of a label to cover himself with," Huxley coined the term agnostic for himself, its first published use being in 1870.

            In your face loser!!  I am the smartest.........

            Just kiddin'.hmm My understanding is that atheists believe that there definitely is no god, whereas agnostics believe that its existence cannot be proven.

              atheist say their is no "deity" which gets confused with "Jesus" as some refer to Jesus as god.  So when an atheist says there is no god, they are saying god (deity) does not exist.

              I am a gnostic atheist. work that one out smarty pants! j/k.  In your face! big_smile

      fishmoxposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      It is not a concept.
      It is a faith.

      An atheist is a self-worshipping person.  His idols are himself, his wisdom, his science, his dialectics.  These are the things he believes in.  He is a man of the physical, who believes there is nothing else beyond other than this miserable existence, and when he dies, he goes to dust to nourish the soil, and rot away in his pretty coffin.

      Since an atheist does not believe in God, you would think that if he wanted sex, he would do it in public when he felt like it, since he believes there is no soul, no God to account to, no hell to face, and so on.

      But if you want to rile an atheist, ask him about his morality and you will get an earful. Questions like "since you do not believe in God and accountability, would you screw your own mother, or sister, or aunt, or maybe an attractive three year old boy or girl ?", or, "would you without hesitation kill another human being for any reason at all, even for him just staring at you ?".

      You will get an earful, I kid you not.

        Most of those things are covered under the law. Just because you do not believe in God does not mean you are going to break the law or kill anyone. What a ridiculous argument.

          Ridiculous argument.  Exactly what the atheists I've discussed with  said.  Word for word.

          Okay.

          So, now, tell me, IF, in the slightest chance, there was no civil law, or human law, to violate and who will run after an offender, will you do "most of those things" ?

    well since this thread has been taken over by cats, nows a good time to ask, what is the allure of the pictures.  i'm not trying to pick a fight I am genuinely curious.  I admit, some of them are cute (I did like the Earthquake one) but the ones lacking in wit, sarcasm or humor, far outnumber the ones that have it.  is it just looking at cats in different positions?  or the cats themselves.  I admit I'm a dog person, but I don't find the humor in the dog versions either.  maybe i just don't have a similar sense of humor, which is fine, I'm just curious.

                  That is the point of punishment.
                  Killing a proven rapist/murderer is much more merciful than inflicting pain and punishment.
                  Tell the truth, the penal system in "civilized" countries is no longer "penal".
                  Criminals get to finish college, or get a GED, they get 3 square meals a day, fresh clothes, good medical attention, somethings they don't get outside prison.
                  Not to mention sex anytime they want it.
                  The question is : is this type of approach working ?
                  I don't know the statistics, but given the number of repeat offenders getting in the news I don't think it's working all that well.
                  Prison ought to be what the name denotes, not just loss of freedom, but pain, pain, pain.
                  I don't mean torture, but pain can be inflicted many ways.
                  Loss of dignity, for one.
                  Hell, these criminals are treated with more dignity than they accorded their victims.

                    People that rape and murder should be put to death by the government. They should not be perpetually tortured in prisons by prison guards or whomever. Unbelievers often chastise God because of hell, but they, in turn, want to torture prisoners for the rest of their life (in essence, creating a hell for those they disapprove of). Prisons should not be perpetual hell-houses. A man that exercises life-threatening force against others should be killed for it. If he steals, he should pay back what he steals. Our prison population would diminish rapidly if those were enacted.

                    I'm not saying that because of pragmatism (if we kill them, it would reduce our prison population). Rather, it is just for a man to die who takes another man's life (and I think that extends to rape and kidnapping). Furthermore, it is just for a thief to pay back more than what he stole.

        The thesis isn't well-stated. However, rejection of God is 1) wrong and 2) illogical. I think that is the point the author is making. Our best observations point us to an initial Creator of the universe.

        As for looking at cats, knock yourself out. Why don't you do that on another site devoted to cats (I'll answer it for you)? It's because you desire to stop any rational discussion about the illogic of atheism. Since you have no argument, you fill this thread with kitty litter to pretend there is no issue. People that tire of the discussion have run out of things to say and those people ought to go do something else. It's the response of the solipsist. It all has to center around him and what he wants. The topic is not going his way, so he has to ruin it for everyone else.

        It's actually a perfect illustration to see the atheist's approach. Now that he has no argument, he throws garbage in the way of rational discourse (like "If you say that God created the universe, then who created God"?). There is no positive argument from atheism, just heaps of doubt and scorn on the believer's position.

        I'm not the moderator; I have no power, only moral authority to say that if you're not on topic, get out.

            What observations are those? LOL

            It is clever, therefore there must be a god? lol

            Let's talk logic:

            100% lack of evidence for a god. Logically, there is no god. Allow me to introduce you to evolution. If you genuinely understand evolution, you must understand that there is no room for a guiding hand - none. Therefore evolution proves there is no god. Thank you and good night.

            You are wrong. And have been proven so.

                We shall see. I see nothing funny in dead babies, especially when they are used to make a religious point.

                Fortunately - this is a joke and the baby lived on to be a happy, productive atheist. Albeit with a strange dislike for lettuce. sad

                  Who are "we" Indianapolis? Is this atheist censorship? Look, MK gets his kicks from posters like that. I mean, I think that someone that would even post something like that should be locked up. But, you are not really going to censor him, are you?

                  MK, don't let them get away with it! Stand up for your rights! They're taking away your free speech! Atheists, you're not going to let them get away with is, are you?

                  Actually, the baby poster has a lot more truth to it than the one that has Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson in it (where do you guys get this soft-core propaganda anyway?). Most atheists go to bat for doctors that will stick a stiletto in the back of a baby's neck, suck his brains out, and crush his skull. I'll admit, it's not exactly the same thing, but it's only a few steps away. I mean, I just don't trust people would would stab an infant in the back of the neck or burn him to death with salt, would you?

                  Also, MK, while you're fighting off the censors I'd pull out the science books too. I'm not sure why you brought up evolution based on the post I gave. The only thing you proved is that you need to get someone to proof your posts before you press "submit."

                    Surely this is the rational approach? No?

                    Maybe if I put it more simply for you:

                    What "best observations" have "we" made that point "us" to an initial creator?

          Moral authority? I don't recall FSM granting you such authority.  "rejection of God is wrong"  Brilliant.  I think the cartoon cats could have written a more meaningful statement.

          For the record, I am not an atheist, but I am tempted to become one whenever I read posts such as yours and those of the death penalty cult.  I've always had difficulty reconciling the notion of a perfect god that could create such evil minds.

    There are just some religious people who judge others and have no right to do so. What some religions deem as "decent" is such a strict narrow vision. "Billy Joel has been married and divorced three times, has abused illegal substances, and attempted suicide."- is all that some people will see without seeing that as a person he could be so much more. Someone can't say "If you have done this you are a bad person."  I don't feel it is right to be judged by others, especially when all they see is your faults.

            Your accusation that religious people are judgmental (your original point) is judgmental. You presume to characterize "some" religious people as being judgmental. But, who do you think you are to make such an indictment? Second, it's disingenuous: we (yes, that includes you) make judgments all the time. We judge that the Nazis were wrong to kill the Jews, for example. Furthermore, we berate men like Adolph Eichmann that did not judge what the Nazis were doing. At his trial, Eichmann said "I was just following orders." He did not judge the Nazi behavior; he went along with it like a good little boy. Maybe he didn't want to appear judgmental either. But he was put to death: he participated in the Holocaust because at some point earlier, he refused to morally judge the Nazis. People who do not judge evil behavior usually become moral coconspirators in those wrong actions.

            There are plenty of people on this post that judge Christians regularly all the while scorning them for being judgmental!

            If you think that religious people are judgmental, then set the example--stop judging others. But a better choice is to stop the hypocrisy that you're not judgmental and exercise good judgment.

              Maybe I wasn't clear in my original post. Of course we all judge. We have to. We have to make judgement calls in decisions in life.  I didn't say that I wasn't judgmental. I didn't generalize all religious people either. There are a select few that feel it is there duty to impose their religion on others. We judge others to determine if we want to be friends with them, hire them, etc. I suppose what I meant to say is that it is frustrating to me to be judged by a person based on their religion when that is not my religion. I know that that is what they believe, and it is appropriate to keep it to themselves. But I just don't like being told that I'm going to hell for being me.

                OK, good. But on what basis do you dismiss religiously-based judgments but accept other other kinds of judgments? What's your criteria? We receive offensive comments regularly, but those comments can't be dismissed merely because they're offensive. Furthermore, the most important thing about religiously-offensive comments like "you're going to hell" is whether or not they're true. I could understand a response that says "I don't believe in hell for the following reasons..."; it least it's rational, even if I don't agree with it. But the fact that you don't like the comment is trivial.

                I'm done. You can have the last word on this if you wish.
