At 35,000 feet we all felt a shudder and then a vibration that became bigger and bigger until finally a blast! The cabin went momentarily dark then emergency lights flashed on and oxygen masks dropped from the ceiling. The attendants were frantically shouting orders to the passengers trying to maintain their composure and balance. More violent vibrations and shudders kept happening in quick succession. People started screaming through their masks. Most were praying and crying. We seemed to be descending rapidly and then we started spinning then...!
As I watched this event unfold, I somehow collected myself unbuckled my seatbelt stretched my oxygen mask to its limits and strangled the person 3 rows ahead of me. He had annoyed me from the moment he entered the cabin. Obnoxious rude and demanding. It was all about him! I know it's murder but I don't care we're going to die anyway!
This little segment of a story is a scenario proposed by Breezy to illustrate a moral dilemma. In comment about it, he suggested that it just doesn't matter anyway because we have but 3 score and 10 years of life allotted to us in the first place. Thus he backhandedly suggests that if we don't believe in an afterlife that we are not held to a moral code. It's a common christian practice. It actually proves nothing except for the lengths that christians will go to make up shit instead of proving their god in the first place.
Breezy's intention was to get atheists to play this game and talk about if murder in this impossible scenario was moral given the fact (that he set up) that everyone would be dead in seconds. Then he could sit back with pat answers in a gotcha game that he set up.
It doesn't prove that you have to have a god to be moral. It doesn't prove there is a god. It proves that they don't have proof of a god so they resort to these gotcha games to deflect and confuse. They become increasingly frustrated when people don't play but instead point out the flaws in the scenario itself. they say things like "you are avoiding the question"
We've seen this before. These aren't honest questions. They are load question designed with a predetermined outcome. Where do they get these ideas? Mostly from christian websites that spend hours designing them.
Another sign of their frustration is when they say "you don't have to answer, you can just ignore it." So why do they say that? Well, it is to silence anyone and everyone that reveals their gotcha game tactic.
Breezy does this all the time. Just look at the threads he starts or any of his replies. He is either apologizing for some other christian's gotcha game or posing one himself.
Now I know Breezy is more intelligent than this but what is surprising is that he doesn't think any of us are intelligent. He smugly just keeps doing this thinking hoping that we'll bite.
One other thing that this proves is just how inherently dishonest christians really are. The gotcha game by its very nature is intellectually dishonest and childish.
