10 QUESTIONS= STUPID AS HELL! [#282]
« on: August 24, 2008, 12:53:40 PM »
 
I figured you'd have a lot of comments, so I capped this one. You should really read this.

For your rational response to the amputees question, you said science supported the rational answer.

What experiment has been done to show that God is imaginary, or that there isn't a God performing miracles by modifying chaos?

I mean, this is an insult to science. I love science, and know that it is irrefutable.

Watch this and it will transform your world- that is if you are an intelligent person.

I am not seeing a point.
I am responsible with my actions NOW so I don't HAVE to be responsible for them later.

I was waiting for a big climax.  What a disappointment.
The whole point of science is that most of it is uncertain. That's why science is exciting--because we don't know. Science is all about things we don't understand. The public, of course, imagines science is just a set of facts. But it's not.  Freeman Dyson

My world is unchanged, and I'm pretty sure I qualify as intelligent. Oh well.

I agree. Hell is stupid.
If you are following God why can I still see you?

Hell is indeed a stupid idea.

And the question, why won't God heal amputees is a stupid question, because everyone's answered it personally already, monotheist, polytheist, or atheist.

The fact that atheists actually jump on the boat with a question that almost insults their way of thinking, or what they claim to be their way of thinking, should be an embarrassment. It almost makes me want to right a book, "The Atheist Delusion".

I think it's a good question for certain people and it sure gets people's attention.

Why is it an insult? Its just a question that shows that the bible is not valid in its claims.

Stupid or not, plenty of people answer the 10 questions seriously.  It gets them thinking.

Do you have better questions?  If so, drop by the forums and post them.

Nobody has supplied a full-proof or even self-proving answer behind any of the 10 questions.
Atheists tend to have a lot more answers than theists.
So the 10 questions are evidently not stupid

I'm an agnostic atheist; I don't know for a fact that there are no gods, but I believe there are none.

Yet, there are plenty of people who say they know for a fact that a god -- specifically the Abrahamic deity God -- exists and they have no doubt.

Because of that, the ones making the claim that the god is real need only show me that they are correct and I will agree.
