@Deme3 Re: "I am really sorry to say this, but, your uncle was apparently brainwashed..."

Really?... Ya think?... Wow.... *feigned look of surprise*.... Thank you for that incredibly earth-moving revelation there, Captain Obvious. Nothing gets past you, does it? Sadly, he is still brainwashed with the religious beliefs, along with most all of my other family members. Took me awhile, but thankfully I was finally able to escape the brainwashing.

I figured that would tickle your funny bone. Just not that badly.

In all honesty when I first read your post, I did read it as "Captain Oblivious." It was not until I had read it a second time I realized my mistake, but then thought, hmm...

And reading your reaction made me laugh so hard I had to check, think I had peed myself also.

The Satan myth is as much of a fantasy as the god myth.

Deme3 - Why do atheists only

Deme3 - Why do atheists only say God doesn't exist? Why not Satan?

Because the Satanists aren't out there poisoning the well against me by saying I'm immoral because I don't believe in their nonsense. If they were, I figured you'd hear atheist dismissing that belief more often.

At to be clear, I'm an atheist and I don't think Satan exists, so now you can no longer say atheists only say god does not exist! I also don't think Thor exists either, for what it is worth.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Deme3 - But why won't God show up to atheist if he loves us? Because Satan has rights, you have rights to make your own decision(Remember, God is just). He can't just show up.

You just flushed god's (supposed) omnipotence down the toilet.

I love psychology and

I love psychology and philosophy, and I'll tell you about the people you were talking up there, they poisoned your well because they felt insecure, because someone was not following their beliefs, the brain told them to eliminate the threat, unless they don't, they will have depression. You will see this scenario mostly in the society and in religion, so what happened to your well was not spiritual, it's psychological.

"You just flushed god's (supposed) omnipotence down the toilet.", Ahh, this one never gets old, I used to let God make(when i was an atheist) a rock that He himself cannot lift up, if he can lift that rock, that means he failed to create such rock, if he cannot lift that rock, there, he CANNOT lift it.

This will always end up in a contradiction. Well, maybe we can't understand God's omnipotence huh?

Deme3 - This will always end

Deme3 - This will always end up in a contradiction.

That is just the point, if two postulates form a contradiction, you don't need to know anything else; the contradiction is proof that at least one of the postulates must be false.

"This will always end up in a contradiction. Well, maybe we can't understand God's omnipotence huh?"

Why not? You claim to understand a lot of your god's qualities. yet when you run across a conflict like this, you suddenly reverse course and state that you don't know. You either do, or you do not know your god's qualities. There is no happy middle ground where you can make claims that satisfy you, then bail out when things get difficult.

Either state that you do know your god's qualities (and be ready to explain and defend EVERY claim on your god's qualities), or state you do not and stop inventing BS to suit your agenda.

Hmmm, if I know all God's

Hmmm, if I know all God's qualities, well, it sounds like i created him, I know God's qualities, just not all of them. Well, lets get this a little formal.

I hereby state that I know some of God's qualities.

"I hereby state that I know some of God's qualities."

And thus, you are sitting on the fence.

Let me summarize your hypocrisy. If no one disputes an attribute you assign to your deity, all is good. But if challenged or backed into a corner because of a conflict or contradiction, you just slither away and state "oh, that was one of the qualities of my deity I am not familiar with". I see what you are doing, and you are making Baby Jesus cry with your dishonesty.

Omnipotent lite, now that

Omnipotent lite, now that never gets old. Nothing is impossible for god, except the stuff he can't do. Brilliant.

"Well, maybe we can't understand God's omnipotence huh?"

How do you know this? On the other hand the nature of nonexistent things is always likely to remain inscrutable, **bro**.

What if God doesn't want you

What if God doesn't want you to know he's there?

Follow me on this. The Bible says that everything is evidence of this god and that Satan is trying to trick you. Like we couldn't explain why there's no evidence for this god so we had to introduce another one. But maybe the book is Satan talking. Maybe God wants you to use your intellect to reason that he doesn't exist and you don't have a god watching everything you do so he can actually see what you will do.

Then Satan, rather than trying to trick you into thinking there is no god, he wants you to devote yourself to belief in him so he can suck all the energy out of your soul.

Prove I'm wrong.

Maybe you are not looking for

Maybe you are not looking for any proofs, you should start looking bro.

Well, what would you if u don't want people to know you exist? You would lock yourself in your room and stay there forever. Wait, I got a better idea, write a book about yourself and give it to everyone so that they would use their intellect to reason that you never existed...(sarcasm)

Your analogy is illogical

Kataclismic's picture
There is no evidence of a god

There is no evidence of a god that the book tells you about and I'm supposed to look for proofs?

You got it backwards, dude.

See, I'm still looking for the proof that my tomatoes are produced by garden fairies.

Are you saying Harry Potter is real? There's a book claiming he is, bro...

I'm an atheist, I believe in zero gods, zero angels, and zero devil's or Satan.

I have pray to God, God doesn't answer
I have ask God to reveal itself, God remains hidden
Therefore I remain an Atheist

What evidence do you have that your God is real, angels are real, that Satan is real?

I was once an atheist like

I was once an atheist like you, but, I didn't stop there, I wanted people to break free from their chains, and yes, I had convinced many people that God doesn't exist. But one day I met a guy, he said he has constant relationship with God, I wanted to turn him into atheist too. We had a deal, if I don't see or experience a supernatural in a month, he would too assume that God doesn't exist, but before that month was over, i need to study the word. Days passed by, then one night, I talked to God as if he really existed, then he touched me, i was electrified, i couldn't move for an hour.(I was a skeptical person, I doubted everything, i can tell if something is a fact or out of superstitious belief, but what happened to me that night was a different thing).

Well, enough of my testimony, I want to tell you that Christian life in not "bless me, gimme " club, you need to understand the meaning of life, the why we are here, btw, when I was an atheist, I read many books, in one of those books, someone said the meaning of life is 42, i don't mean that, he also said about a whale and a petunia, which depicts the meaning of life, I don't mean that too.

Something is either real or it is not real: it is utterly meaningless to say something can be "more real". That is purely sentimental language.

Now we know you've never been an atheist. No atheist has ever convinced anybody that a god does not exist.

Deme3 are you asserting that

Deme3 are you asserting that "Satan" exists? Please give your definition of "Satan", and then provide proof of this entity's existence.

Until then, I will remain in the default position, not believing a claim until it is proven.

I am not stating that I do not believe in Satan, I am withholding belief.

Well, how do we know that

Well, how do we know that Neptune is made up of helium, methane and hydrogen if we've never been there? Simple, elements emit certain color, and from that, we can get its composition. It's a lot like that.

Okay, I haven't proof the existence of Satan, but, some people have proven it(i am lucky enough to be not one of them). Lets put is like this, do you know the quantum entanglement? If a particle is entangled to another particle(In this case, God and satan), and if we observe that the particle has a certain spin, the other particle will automatically have the opposite spin without the need for observation. It's like this, if you can prove God exists, Satan exist without the need for proof.

I'm sensing the same old question, "How do you prove God exists?", well, you want evidence, don't you? Well, I am in a constant relation with him with the evidence of the 9 gifts of the spirit.(just google it if you don't know)

I cannot provide it for you

I cannot provide it for you because you are a million miles away. But, I'll tell you what, you can provide it for yourself. Why don't you give another try? Those gifts are all for us. Look, i know how think, i was once in your shoes. It sounds, umm, you know, like politics, people telling you to vote for them, and you've been through a lot of campaigns, you know how politicians work and you are sick of it. Anyway that was how it felt.

He was as far as we know, the Morningstar, or Lucifer. He was beautiful, but one day, he wanted to be more powerful than God........... he lost the fight with God. Now, how can people hurt you if they are weaker than you?, Well, I would torture your loved ones. Oops, Satan heard that(just joking). Now, he is currently busy torturing and tempting God's loved ones to go in hell.
