Quote# 4165

It's true. Atheists aren't seeking the truth. They just don't want God to exist, so they ignore all of the evidence there is that he exists. It doesn't matter what you show them, they just dismiss is as 'insufficient' or something similar. Since atheists don't want God to exist, there's no sense in debating with them.

The bible is not evidence to Gods existance any more than Harry Potter is proof to the existance of Wizards. Now, is there any real, hard evidence out there? If so, do share.

Mr_Vorhias

Well you're right about one thing.

We're not seeking the truth.

Y'know what we're doing instead?

LIVING OUR LIVES.

Consider doing that sometime...If your Jesus will let you. 9_9

It's true. Fundies aren't seeking the truth. They just want God to exist, so they ignore the complete lack of evidence that he exists. It doesn't matter what you show them, they just dismiss is as 'the work of Satan' or something similar. Since fundies want God to exist, there's no sense in debating with them.

F'XED.

"Since atheists don't want God to exist, there's no sense in debating with them."
You're right we're lost causes. Just leave us be, there's nothing you can do for us.

you cannot justify blind gullibility then expect everyone to follow in your blind ways.

your god fails.

just like the thousands before it throughout history.

There is no evidence that god exists. That's why we are atheists. All your so-called evidence comes from a book of fairytale and anectodal stories written by sheep shaggers 2000 years ago, long after the events described were alleged to have taken place.

This is not evidence of anything except that a book called the bible exists. No more than Jurassic Park is evidence for the continued existence of dinosaurs.

We find no evidence for the existence of ANY gods, not just yours.

You don't want Ganesh to exist, therefore you ignore all of the evidence there is that he exists or dismiss it as insufficient.
What? There is probably MORE evidence for the existence of Ganesh, than of your God, as Hinduism is much older.

"It's true. Atheists aren't seeking the truth. They just don't want God to exist, so they ignore all of the evidence there is that he exists."

Do you accept that if you enter the cupboard where you keep your clothes, you'll emerge out the other side into another world where you'll meet a talking lion? Because if you don't - specifically the scenario posited in the book* "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" by the devoutly Christian author CS Lewis - you've just destroyed your own argument.

...what's that? 'That's just a story, pure fiction that relies on metaphor (i.e. Aslan = Jesus); fiction can't be 'Truth', you say? Well then. Again, you've just destroyed your own argument. Proof?

The Church of England (which includes clergy who - if they're not already Professors of such - are learned Theological scholars who have studied the Biblical, and related texts in not just KJV-esque English, but Latin, Greek, and Aramaic for decades) openly acknowledge that much of the Bible is purely fable and metaphor.

"It doesn't matter what you show them, they just dismiss is as 'insufficient' or something similar. Since atheists don't want God to exist, there's no sense in debating with them."

And since your 'God' can't prove he exists - to we Atheists' satisfaction (appearing to us physically, and proving he is 'God', via demonstrations of his power), then I see absolutely no reason to acknowledge the existence of your 'God'.

A mere book is not 'Proof'. It needs physical evidence to back it up. And the Bible has never been peer-reviewed by the scientific establishment.

*- PROTIP: 'Book' in Greek is 'Biblios'. It's the origin of the word 'Bible' too. Thus "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" is a Bible. As is "On the Origin of Species" by Charles Darwin", "A Brief History of Time" by Prof. Stephen Hawking, and "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins.

The Bible is Truth after all, and you must accept the Truth in these Bibles too.

Enjoy your paradox, Northern Christian.

I could say the opposite. I've tried talking to Christians about the inconsistencies and translations in the bible and its contradictions with things in real life, but they refuse to listen. They want god to exist to give meaning to their lives, and to give them hope for an afterlife, and they're willing to ignore anything that would compromise this belief.

Well isn't that a convenient bit of rationalization Northern Christian. It isn't that your evidence is insufficient, it's just that the people saying so are willfully dishonest.

It's not just a river in egypt you know.

I take extreme umbrage at this. I do Not dismiss your evidence as 'insufficient' at all. How dare you! I dismiss your evidence as garbage. There is a difference.

Yeah, just like you don't want Wonderland to exist just in case you oneday fall down a Rabbit hole.

If you'd actually read your Bible, Both Testaments you wouldn't want him to exist either.

It would matter what you show us, if you have something even remotely evidentuary, but you don't, the Bible you've never read doesn't count. There is No evidence for the God of the Bible.

Most folks I know don't give enough of a shit about religion to call themselves atheists.
