Make up a ridiculous claim
« on: April 20, 2012, 06:48:50 AM »
Example: Fine tuned universe.

God made pi exactly in tune with the circle, 3.14159 etc. If God had made pi 3.15, the circles would not be round and a car wheel, for example, would be wobbly.

Your turn. Can be anything to do with God, creation.

Oh, sorry. I guess you could make an ellipse with 3 and use the largest "radius".

Your turn. Make up a new claim. This one we are done with.

This is supposed to be entertaining.

So since there are 3 persons in God He is Pi.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

(Please let me play the theist role for this one, this should be interesting indeed)  ;D

God's PLAN is always PERFECT!

God does heal amputee by inspiring people to create fake limb.
When god does not heal smallpox back then, it's because god PLANS to punish human, and then forgive them afterward.
Just like when u punish your kid, no dinner tonight, but tomorrow u forgive him/her and give special treat. (Pizza maybe)

When bad things happened to good people. It's because god's plan to teach them a valuable lesson.
When they're dead, god take them to better place. god actually saving them not to suffer in this world anymore.
Or maybe god need them as an angel.

It's called plan. You atheist are pathetic. You don't understand god at all!
If you argue correctly, you're never wrong..

Here's a ridiculous, made up claim: The Bible is true.
Seriously though... What would happen if the Great Green Arkleseizure didn't fram up the rammastam before the hermite curve achieved maximum nurdfurdle velocity? Now THAT would be something. AmIrite?

Freaky, I tried my best to understand. The answer from the loving God was always two things:
-bad people have free will
- he is testing me

I tried to read between lines but there was no clear anawer, maybe it is in a Da Vinci code?

An Omnipowful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

Ding! This proves that we really don't need to *make up* ridiculous claims. All we need to do is quote the bible.

I can one-up Hatter's ridiculous claim.  You know why this universe is the best that the omni-everything god could do?  Because he apparently felt that six days was plenty of time to make it in.  Probably made a bet with his lesser buddies (you know, all those lesser gods that were alluded to) that he could make the whole universe in a week, and found the work so boring that he said, "Eh, good enough" after six days so that he could go brag about it on the seventh.

The Bible is the only anthology with internal consistency.   

Have you heard that all anthologies are selected by their editor so they have a set of similar stories?  You must have that wrong.

The Bible is the only anthology with internal consistency.   

It's amazing.  Truly amazing.

I created the tenth dimension in M-Theory.  I knew it long before you did.  It actually goes backwards - from 10 to 0.  You are at 0.  I made this place just to fuck with mankind..  We came up with all this stuff billions of years ago.  We created this dimension for kicks and giggles..  sorry if we caused you any pain.

The Strecker synthesis
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strecker_synthesis

which is supposed to make life out of inorganic matter and gases, does not make proline, an essential amino acid, therefore God made proline.

I witnessed god's creation. God was made from the SKoraeger which formed trillions of years ago. God decided to create a lot of planets and stuff because god was lonely. God watched as the multiverses formed and   decided to make new species. A while later, god made humans. God was bored so god gave humans fire, then wanted to make it interesting so god gave them weapons to fight each other in god's name. Humans will be destroyed in just 50 years by random space mutants that want revenge...then after they destroy everyone here they go "Oops, wrong planet!"

I created the internet.  And then I created global warming.   ;D

A few:
1. The certainty with which you hold to a proposition is evidence of it's truth.
2. The amount of torture a person endures without recanting a proposition is evidence of it's truth.
3. The way a proposition makes you feel is evidence of it's truth.
4. Those propositions which you would like to be true are more probable to be true.
5. Anecdotal evidence trumps empirical evidence.
6. The older a proposition is, the more likely it is to be true.
7. Our ancestors had great amounts of knowledge about the world, medicine, etc, which we have lost because of our "obsession" with scientific evidence.
