The insanity of religion – History Channel edition

Do Christians think about the things they say? The logical implications of what they say? A perfect example is presented here:

Christian radio host: ‘God guided’ History Channel to prove Obama is Satan

“I don’t believe they intentionally portrayed the Lucifer character to look like Mr. Obama,” the Christian radio host noted. “I think God guided the hand of the makeup artist and blinded the eyes of everybody on the movie set while it was being recorded, and the spiritual blinders were removed Sunday night when the program was broadcast nationally on the History Channel.”

“How many clues do we need from Heaven to understand that the man in the White House is a devil from Hell?”

If this God is so powerful, so willful and so interactive that he would “guide the hand of makeup artists” and “blind the eyes of everybody on the movie set”, then how in the world did Obama get elected? If Obama is the “devil from Hell”, how did Obama get re-elected? Isn’t God capable of guiding an election just as easily?

Christians who make statements like the ones seen in this article truly do appear to be insane.

    Any dude who refers to himself as one of the “my little ponies” is one scary dude.

    Ahem, that is rather rude to say about one of the largest fandoms in history.

    Anyway, i dont see what is wrong in the USSR, being that it doesnt exist anymore.

    A’s response is all part of the trolling exercise.

    When someone refuses to be drawn into their little diversion, another troll or sock-puppet comes back to the fray. Then then throw out personal insults and accusations to try to bait people into another of their pet diversions.

    All because they can’t produce any evidence that their god is real. Sigh.

    it had been my impression blogs were for asking questions. But here all you get is anger and insults. It could be immaturity on the part of the participants. The fact Flutter sees no problem since the former USSR now does not exists is very enlightening to the mindset here.

    there’s that bs atheist generalization again. an atheist is somebody that don’t believe in your bs god. get it thru your head. you lying again as usual.

    Mart,

    Atheists claim that violent, murdering atheists regimes have nothing to do with atheism. For atheists, they live in denial, close their eyes while chanting atheism goud, all other religions bad.

    Compare that to US government’s denial that Islamic extremist and jihad is taking place. That is the atheists mindset. They ignore the fact that Atheists dictators have murdered more people in the last 100 years than have been murdered throughout man’s history. But of course that is not immoral because absolutes do not exist.

    “Atheists claim that violent, murdering atheists regimes have nothing to do with atheism.”

    you dumb bitch. might as well say that the murdering bubonic plague is atheism.

    you can say all you want, but it doesn’t validate your bitch ass god belief, motherfucker. just keep on talking and praying and clicking your heels. ain’t no god gonna materialize and save your ass from the cursing i’m gonna keep dishing out.

    “Compare that to US government’s denial that Islamic extremist and jihad is taking place.”

    who cares? more blah, blah, failed attempts to detract from nonsensical, foreskin loving, burnt flesh obsessed, fig tree cursing bullsheeyat you call god.

    go fuck yourself then whine to the blogmaster.

    oh, don’t forget. the atheist homie-sapiens killed off the neanderthals. fuckin shit.

    Well for one, that is generalisation, and its also a ridiculous lie.

    Atheism doesnt exist, that would be like nosantaclausism, and those “murdering athiests” have nothing to do with anyone else, considering that athiests arent in a religion.

    “Atheism doesnt exist”

    Now I see the problem. You are high.

    When you sober up do an honest assessment. There are no websites, organizations, authors, books, blogs, federal rulings and trolls on nosantaclausism.

    And as I expected, atheist refuse to acknowledge what the murdering atheists tyrants have done.

    semantics, idiot. an atheist doesn’t believe in your bullshit god, period. all that other crap is a sideshow.

    Again, generalisation, and the “tyrants” being atheist has nothing to do with their mindset.

    It’s too bad that Jesus couldn’t write stuff down himself. Then we wouldn’t have this endless discussion about what he “meant.” Maybe he didn’t know how to write. Maybe he was too busy with his carpenter job. And how good of a carpenter was he? Sure he was the son of god but could he hang a door?

  15. on 24 Apr 2013 at 4:32 pm 15.Anonymous said …

    Yes, Fluttershy, this has been explained many, many, times. It’s not possible that he doesn’t understand that. It’s one of his favorite diversions.

    However, whilst you are engaged in defending against this strawman, you are not pressing home his avoiding providing evidence for the existence of his supposed-god or, indeed, responding to the OP.

    Sure, the murdering tyrants separated their atheism from their hate of the religious! Lol!!!!!

    Now if you can prove it, you may have a point. You can’t and you won’t.

    this is your god proof? moron.

    I cannot prove it, therefore they were evil atheist killers.
    If we are to work like that, you cannot prove your god exists, therefore he is imaginary.

    “Now I see the problem. You are high.”

    yeah, and i like fat, ugly, smelly, short, black, transsexual, old women? you on the other hand, believes in a fictional being, who died on the cross for your sins, giving you a free pass to do whatever the fuck you want, over and over again?

    don’t you get it? the atheist may commit the exact same crime, but you xtian fuckers make up this righteous/redemption shit, then wave it about when you get caught.

    wah! i’m a born sinner and i can’t help it! i’ll just be born again. what a crock!

    Mr. 219.alex, just because we are Christians does not mean that we can do whatever we want.

    We have to live loving, forgiving, kind, and genorus lives.
    You are misguided.

    “just because we are Christians does not mean that we can do whatever we want.”

    that’s because you’re an ignorant, non-bible reading, but self proclaim bible interpreter. now, go fuck yourself.

    choke on this bitch:
    John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    oh, i ferget, you’re a dumbfuck.

    fine. xtians & muslims murdered exactly the same amount and it’s a tie game? your god is still bullsheet. what? i can’t spell? your god is still bullshit.

    “If we are to work like that, you cannot prove your god exists”

    Sure I can and over 90% of the world believes the proof. You need to be asking why are you blind to it?

    There is also no dispute the greatest murdering tyrants of the last century were atheists. You are 0 for 2 Fluttershy.

    “Sure I can and over 90% of the world believes the proof.”

    wrong. most of the world don’t believe in your bullshit god. pick a god, any god.

    “There is also no dispute the greatest murdering tyrants of the last century were atheists.”

    wrong again dipshit. just because bullshit comes out of your mouth, doesn’t mean it’s true. say the world is flat and it shall be?

    I do hope that proof to you means delusional people claiming divine things, lies, and the threat of Hell.

    Fluttershy. you’ll soon find out that “A” and Martin throw stuff out without proof or backing and just demand you prove them wrong; a fallacy in itself. They love strawmen and loaded questions. Basically, it’s fallacy after fallacy. Gish Gallop after Gish Gallop.

    They’ll participate as long as they are asking questions, even if it’s ones they can’t answer themselves. They’ll demand proof of whatever you say all while ignoring your requests for the same.

    When you say that’s that’s nothing to do with being an atheist the response is along the lines of “Gotcha, see atheists can’t prove xxx”, even though it’s the fallacy of reversing the burden of proof, it’s often a red-herring or a non-sequiter or a category error and so on.

    When the going gets tough, more sock-puppets appear either to replace the one that will go into hiding to avoid answering questions, or to have conversations along the lines of “Good point me. Hey, other-me, see how the atheists xxxx”. Whatever.

    You’ll notice “A” said “Sure I can and over 90% of the world believes the proof”, not only is that the fallacy of “argumentum ad populum”, he hasn’t – nor will he – tell you what this “proof” is and if you get him to tell you what the “90%” is, it almost certainly won’t be relevant to his god.

    Basically, you’re arguing with trolls and sock-puppets.

  28. on 25 Apr 2013 at 11:46 am 28.Anonymous said …

    Continued…

    Another favorite game is to combine debunked arguments with double standards and a non-sequitur.

    They’ll bleat that Mao was an atheist even though it’s as relevant as saying that people with moustaches are mass murders as Stalin had a moustache. Hitler often mentioned god and was brought up as a Catholic, but that’s held to another standard. Likewise, the inquisition which was a result of religious views/dogma, is somehow different.

    As above, they are not here for an honest debate.

    Anonymous,

    many posters have outlined proofs for God on this blog. You are ignorant and/or unaware. The problems arises when your ilk only claim is uh uh it’s not proof. Acknowledging the vast majority buys into these proofs is not a fallacy. The fallacy states the claim is true due to the fact the vast majority believe it. Learn what a fallacy is before showing more ignorance.

    Do you seriously believe Communist dictators separated their atheists beliefs from their actions? Humans do not work in this manner. It is quite reasonable to acknowledge their atheism and relative moralism as factors in their actions.

    “insert comment here”

    Humorously, every sentence in that comment was a lie ;D

    Also, anon, regardless of the theists being trolls and liars, its better to argue than to ignore ;D

    And on cue, another sock-puppet turns up to repeat the same evidence-free claim.

    Fluttershy, have fun. As long as you realize that they are deliberately being obstructive and will try to bait you into diversions (as here), then you’ll do fine!

    Finally, because the response from the trolls is often to accuse everyone else of their misdeeds, here’s a couple of classics from the archives;

    Now about actual evidence for the existence of any god?

    X,

    Don”t you know anony the mouse is extra special. He specially qualified to determine what is an is not evidence. You must also meet his demand regardless of how many times it has been presented

    Have you ever noticed he has Never Ever (sound familiar) added anything meaningful here? He spends his time calling everyone trolls and puppets. This is a mouse out of ideas. Lol!!!!

    The thing I like about most Christians is they will call out their own. Not atheists or Muslims. Just like a liberal.

    “a”stroboy:

    Sure I can and over 90% of the world believes the proof. You need to be asking why are you blind to it?

    Of course, whatever the majority of people believe has to be THE WAY IT IS. Never mind that the majority of people once believed that the Earth was flat. Hey, isn’t this some sort of fallacy….appeal to something or other. Better change your tactic “a”.
