“Atheism is an intellectually shallow, morally stunted, and socially regressive blight on humanity.” – Jim O’Neill

“Atheism is an intellectually shallow, morally stunted, and socially regressive blight on humanity.” So says Jim O’Neill in this article:

Atheism 101: Trickle-Down Poison

He has a lot more to say. For example:

Winston Churchill once said of Islam that “No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.” I beg to differ—as a regressive, debilitating, socially destructive force, atheism has no peer

But this is the most interesting part:

Dinesh D’Souza has pointed out that atheistic pundits are no longer content with being tolerated; they want to prove that their view of reality is the correct one, once and for all. I concur—bring it on. One side of the debate is correct, and the other side is insanely deluded. It’s obviously important to see which side is on the side of truth.

To say that atheism denies the existence of God doesn’t tell us much, unless we define what we mean by the label “God.” I would be happy to discuss the concept/reality of God, but the focus of this article is atheism not God, so I’ll employ a simple yet usable definition for now. I’ll have to leave questions such as whether God is a white-bearded guy sitting on a cloud, or as Paul said, a reality “in which we live, and move, and have our being,” and other ontological/theological concerns for another time.

For our purposes here, I’ll simply define God as an intelligent power behind creation. Atheists deny the existence of such a God, and from their denial spring a variety of absurd, puerile, and socially harmful concepts.

So which side is insanely deluded? The side that believes in talking snakes, imaginary floods, prayers that never work and a Bible filled with repulsive acts? Or the side that believes in the laws that we can discern in nature? If you are a Christian and have trouble understanding the insanity, these two videos can help open your eyes:

    Fine!
    Now someone tell us what Christianity, Islam, Ra-ism, Quetzlcoatl-ism, Odin-ism, Sapghetti -monster-ism, or any other religion ever existed on earth, has to do with it?

    Jim is right. Read what Madalyn Murray O’Hair’s son says about his mother who disowned him for becoming a Christian.

    “When I was a young boy of ten or eleven years old she would come home and brag about spending the day in X-rated movie theaters in downtown Baltimore…. My mother’s whole life circulated around such things… It was love of power over people that finally caused not only her death, but the deaths of my brother and my daughter… My mother was an evil person… Not for removing prayer from America’s schools… No, she was just evil.

    She stole huge amounts of money. She misused the trust of people. She cheated children out of their parents’ inheritance. She cheated on her taxes and even stole from her own organizations. She once printed up phony stock certificates on her own printing press to try to take over another atheist publishing company….Regardless of how evil and lawless my mother was she did not deserve to die in the manner she did.”

    Read her bio, a horrible woman

    Clausewitz,

    Would you expect anything else?

    She was from Baltimore.

    But so what? Look at all the odious filth that are xtian ministers and Republican politicians. If what the obviously disgruntled son says is true, at least she was not tainted by hypocrisy like the aforementioned ministers and politicians.

    And “Clausewitz”, it is a shame you dishonor a great name with your obvious lack. Perhaps though, you are merely trying to fight for your chosen cause without regard to what is right or wrong. Thankfully, the first sentence holds.
