Bigotry against atheists is normal

Imagine if someone on a national TV show slandered blacks or Jews or women like this:

Yet if he slanders atheists, no problem. The host laughs.

    Why do people become bigots?

    May God have mercy on you – you have no clue what you’re saying

    Maybe if you actually BELIEVED in God, you’ll see the PROOF of his existence…and keep in mind that just becuase you pray for something doesn’t mean you will necessarily receive what you prayed for – just like a child asking a parent for something they want (eg, a candy bar). What- becuase the parent doesn’t give it to him/her, it’s ‘proof’ that that parent is nonexistent?

    Have you ever considered looking at paleontology or biology, anonymous?

    Also, are you aware of the existence of former Christians who did believe but still saw nothing?

    > May God have mercy on you

    Why wouldn’t an all-loving god always show mercy?

    Its not bigotry. It is amazement and amusement that a small subset of individuals could have such a illogical view. Its like denying that a star exists because all you see is a pinpoint of light and claiming “I don’t know where the light came from, but it cannot be a star.

    Atheist do have morals but the reality is, they can make their own based on their own criteria. They like believing they have no one to answer to. I can understand that.

    Turn on an episode of Family Guy or The Simpsons and watch the real bigotry against the Christians, Jews, etc. Time to stop whining atheist and get a thicker skin.

    You realize the Simpsons are Christians, and family guy makes fun of everybody (including atheists), right?

    What exactly is so logical about believing we came from dirt?

  8. on 03 Jun 2009 at 6:08 pm 8.Xenon said …

    Actually The Simpsons are cartoons and the Rev LoveJoy is a joke. The writers are not Christians. Family Guy has made light of Christians many many times. I have never seen them belittle atheists. Maybe you could share that episode.

    Come to think of it, what was derogatory about Harvey’s question in the video? It is a legitimate question.

    Women are also slandered on the talk-show circuit. Miss California comes to mind. Blacks have it all over atheist and its not even a comparison over the last 200 years. Jews have it all over atheist if you go back to WWII. Again, get a thicker skin. Harvey’s question is legitimate.

    Actually I think its South Park that makes fun of atheists. I’ve never seen a family guy episode making fun of atheists.

    The Simpsons characters are definately christian. The f.g. ones were in the earlier episodes.

    Since when do these terrible cartoons matter anyway? They’re the big examples of intolerance of christians?

  11. on 04 Jun 2009 at 3:41 am 11.Midgar said …

    Yes, poor christians. They are so persecuted. I mean, they can’t even keep gays from getting married in some states anymore! I’m telling you, without an oppressive christian hand in the government they will be persecuted to death! We should really be more tolerant to christian laws and allow them to put biblical law into effect so we can all live moral lives!

  12. on 04 Jun 2009 at 9:17 am 12.Xenon said …

    I agree, they are persecuted as much as atheist. So get a backbone and stop with the whining. The comparison with blacks and Jews is idiotic and embarrassment to atheist.

    “imaginary friends”
    “childhood fantasies”
    “delusion”
    “think logicaly”
    “When we assume God exists, the answers to those 10 questions amke absolutely no sense”
    “Because God’s imaginary and this bizarre ritual came from a pagan religion”
    “Primitive men wrote the Bible”
    “In order to belive in God,you have had to create all sorts of strange rationalizations ads excuses”

    I feel so shame about you, you must be the most unhappy person in the world and you will die alone with yourself and nobody will care about you.
    Must of the things you said in the video are 110% nosense and you seem like a completly retard when you say that good is a childhood fantasy.
    You are frustrated and your life will never make any sense at all.
    You said in the video that the answers come when you stop beliving in God…You said that everything in God makes no sense… DOES ANYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE MAKES SENSE!
    Thats was the most ridiculous, stupid, outrageous video i have ever seen.
    Peeps God think with me “IF YOU PRAY FOR STRENGHT WILL GOD GIVE YOU STRENGHT? NO, HE WILL GIVE YOU AN OPORTUNITY TO USE STRENGHT”.
    “IF YOU PRAY FOR JUSTICE, DOES GOD GIVES YOU JUSTICE OR AN OPORTUNITY TO BE JUST?
    The owner of the video should never been able to spread such a lie, such a wrong idea.

    God is the source of love, of friendship, he has special plans for all of us and he is not a magician who clap the hand for wishes. Remember he is always with us, even the ones who (like the user from the video) dont belive in what is UNQUESTIONABLE!

    If it is so “unquestionable”, then prove it. Oh wait, you can’t.

    As far as I can tell the claim “answers come when you stop believing is just atheist propaganda. They actually have fewer answers and more frustration that must be released on the religious. It is fascinating to watch how typical such an attitude is among the atheist. They even must lie as illustrated by the accusations against Steve Harvey here on this thread.

    Lastly, bloggers pretending to be Jesus and God is an illustration of childish actions and behavior. Therefore their claims that we must release childish God beliefs is rather comical wouldn’t you agree?

    Fewer answers? Have you tried putting down the Jebus juice and looking out your front window? Everything you see has been given to you by technology (developed by SCIENCE(!)), which christians oppose for some weird reason.

    Since you have so many, start presenting them or shut up.

    You obviously don’t live in the Bible Belt, do you?

    Dahmer you are funny fella. So technology gives me everything? Really?

    Let me run down the list of things that really matter and last. Out front I see tress, flower, the sun and a beautiful lake To top it off, I have a wife and three precious children and a whole host of friends. Maybe you could just share how everything got started? How did it all begin and why are we here? And silly boy, christians do not oppose technology, Where do you come up with such silly accusations? See comments like that just discredit anything you have to add.

    Actually I am on the edge on the Bible belt. I never hear anything about atheist and what they believe. They are just not considered to be a major issue.

    I would be talking about that house you live in. The car in your driveway. The telephone poles on your street. Crap like that.

    I notice you had no answers other than “God did it!”

    You oppose stemcells, right? That’s something.

    Like Fred said, you don’t live there.

  22. on 13 Jun 2009 at 5:29 pm 22.Xenon said …

    Where did stemcells come from? Lets stick to point.

    So, if God didn’t do it tell me who or what did? There is my point. You lack the answers and thus frustration. Yes I believe God started the whole process. Fits well within the evidence. But if you have another answer I am more than willing to entertain another POV.

    For the record, the car house and driveway are not nearly as impressive the trees, the flowers and the lake.

    Let’s see.. the Big Bang.. abiogenesis.. evolution.

    Done.

  24. on 13 Jun 2009 at 6:31 pm 24.Jiggy Pants said …

    Where’d God come from and why does he get away with violating the laws of thermodynamics?

  25. on 13 Jun 2009 at 10:20 pm 25.Fred said …

    How ’bout that that durn fancy computer of yours, xenu?

  26. on 14 Jun 2009 at 9:47 am 26.Xenon said …

    Fred all you have done is state the obvious. Big Bang: Where did it come from? Why did it happen ad where did the matter come from for the Big Bang? Why were physical laws broken for Big Bang or where they?

    Abiogensis is just a rework of Spontaneous generation. It hasn’t proven a thing. It is one possible theory with many unknowns.

    Evolution, where obvious reworks taking place constantly are filled with many assumptions. The thing with evolution is that many come to the table with presuppositions and the evidence must fit their presuppositions. I obviously don’t trust either side of the debate.

    God to me is unexplainable, He cannot be explained only criticized or judged by us. We can not speak for Him, we can only defend Him.

  28. on 15 Jun 2009 at 2:18 am 28.Pizza said …

    Theist, replace “god” with the Big Bang and “he” by it. See how that works out.

    How does one force oneself to believe in the unbelievable? One can’t. I could no more believe in any gods than I could believe in fairies at the bottom of my garden. Of course, if the supposedly omnipresent, omniscient, omnibenevolent (now there’s a bunch of impossibilities to begin with) evanescent invisible immeasurable and only god decided to introduce itself personally, maybe I might reconsider. Until then, there is no reason to believe in the ridiculous. That’s my real name and I am at mizleeATaolDOTcom.
