@Senta Re: "So 93% of the world are lunatics and you ppl who do not even have the ability to apply simple logic are the only sane ones?"
Huh?... *scratching head*... At what point ANYWHERE on this site have I ever claimed to be SANE???.... *looking around room in an accusing manner*... Alright! Listen up you bunch of goons! Which one of you prankster assholes has been spreading that ridiculous rumor about me?!?!?!?!
@ Tin-Man Re: Ridiculous Rumor
Ain't been me. I have always claimed I am a nutjob just like all my bestest friends...
Yeah, I have to agree with Nyar. Calling you a troll is actually a compliment compared to the alternative at this point.
What do you really expect when you post nonsense? Unevidenced woo is what you espouse. No wonder others find it difficult to believe you are real.
Provide some solid evidence (not the "look around you, see what I see) kind of personal experience but evidence that can point to your rather shy creator thing that apparently lives in another galaxy.
At the moment you are coming across as a rather sad lady with a bagful of woo. Watch out, I can see you ending up with a living room full of dreamcatchers and the neighbours complaining about your 100+ cats.
You just don't want to face the truth. It is very obvious that higher intelligence created this universe, but live on in denial of logic and insult anyone who does not agree with you until you die and go nowhere. The Shirley Temple song was great though. And very fitting.
Again "You just don't want to face the truth. It is very obvious that higher intelligence created this universe PROVE IT.
It is not fucking obvious to most of humanity as they all believe totally different things about the origins of their particular tribe. Hell, here in Australia you can travel across 5 different areas of 1st Nations and hear 5 different fucking stories of their and human origins.. "Human experience" proves absolutely nothing.
Your vision of fluffy bunny afterlife had me kekking me underpants with laughter. EVIDENCE you daft skellen. Seriously if the term "Glakit Sumph" was to mean anything you should tattoo it on your forehead.
You assert everything, evidence nothing and come on an atheist website to be lauded for your insights? Fucking hell...seriously don't you feel a little ridiculous?
I'm done with humoring your fucking la la woo woo. Its not even an original story, and I didnt buy it when I first heard it.
Wrong as usual. Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Jainists, Scientologists and most New Agers (the vast majority of the world) all believe in a Creator God, a soul that exists separate from the body, reward/redemption and eternal life. We have a lot more in common than you realize.
We have a Christian user on this site who doesn't believe in souls.
False. Christians believe in souls or they are not Christian. Literally thousands of references to the soul in the Bible.
Not all Christians believe every word of the bible. In fact, one of my family members worked for a short period as a Christian minister, and they didn't believe in souls either. Oh I also have a family member who is physicist, who is an atheist; something else you told us is impossible. So again, are you insane, or just trolling?
I don't believe you because if you are a Christian in any sense then you believe we have a soul. People claiming to be Christian does not make them Christian and there are certainly PPL involved in the religion who are just there for the money. I doubt it-that you have a family member who is truly an atheist because there are very few convinced atheists in the world. Most people who claim atheism will admit that they really have no idea if God exists and if proof of God were ever discovered, they would believe (making them agnostic)
Please don't make incorrect statements that Jews "all believe in a Creator God, a soul that exists separate from the body, reward/redemption and eternal life." The vast majority of Jews in the world are not religious. Many religious Jews do not believe there's an afterlife. Some figure if it happens, it happens, but that the emphasis on living should be on THIS life. I've never heard of the afterlife being mentioned in synagogue--neither reward/redemption nor eternal life.
Quit trying to bolster your position with statistics that are incorrect.
It's all in their Holy Text aka The Old Testament. So yes, if they are actually Jews, they sure do.
There are Jews who are members of this site who don't believe that. Again; are you trolling, or are you crazy?
Pretending to be part of a religion does not make you part of that religion.
Not all Jews are religious. There are Jews on this site who are atheists; which makes what you said pretty darn crazy.
If they are atheists then they are definitely not Jews. lol That is my point.
What you have said is bordering on racism. I will give you one chance to repudiate your previous statement that Jews can't be atheists. Don't squander this chance.
Judaism is a religion that worships God. Atheists don't believe God exists. Someone who denies the religion of Judaism may have been born in a Jewish family, but they have chosen to not be part of that faith.
OK, so I'm a big softy and will give you one more chance:
Your next post will contain exactly this following statement and nothing else: I was wrong, I didn't realize that there are Jews who don't embrace every aspect of Judaism; Jews can be atheists, Christian, Muslim, or any religion of their choosing.
If you fail in this task, you will be removed from this community for racism. You are on extremely thin ice, be careful.
Senta has been removed.
Thumbs up, Nyar.
Re: Senta has been removed.
YAY!!!!.... *throwing streamers and confetti*..... *ringing cow bells*.... *waving pom-poms*.... *dancing a jig*... Nyar rules! Party at my place, everybody! Drinks are on me!
@Senta Christine:Pretending to be part of a religion does not make you part of that religion.
All religion is the pretense of believing in a pretend friend in the sky. So what does pretending to be part of a pretense make you? How do you tell the difference between the pretend pretenders and the true, sincere pretenders? Are we atheists just pretending to pretend not to join in the pretense? Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.
Re: Algebe - "Are we atheists just pretending to pretend not to join in the pretense? Oh yes, I'm the great pretender."
Ladies and gentlemen, this one goes out to all you crazy godless heathen cats and kittens out there who don't know your asses from a hole in the ground! Sit back! Relax! And enjoy!....
You may be confusing the Jewish Bible with the Oral Law. And the book is called the Tanakh, of which the first five books are the Torah. You appear to be making the mistake of believing that all Jews are religious Jews, and if they're not religious, they're not Jews. https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/no-true-scotsman
Jews believe in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible and yes they have other holy books too but that is DEFINITELY one of them.
the monotheistic religion of the Jews.
the Jews collectively.
The Tanakh is the Jewish Bible. It includes all of the books as the Christian Old Testament, but in different order. A belief in heaven is not a universal belief in Judaism and is a very unimportant aspect of Judaism. The emphasis is on living this life and doing it with action, not living in faith for some possible afterlife.
I could refer you to Merriam-Webster, tell you to look up Jew, Jewish, and Judaism and come back and tell what you've learned, but I think you're being deliberately obtuse. You'd just come back with more errors, stupid conclusions and stupid questions. You truly cannot read for comprehension.
You say your parents are atheists:
What did they teach you about critical thinking and logical fallacies?
What did they teach you about evolution?
Jews are the tiniest percentage of the groups I mentioned by far and I am sick of this stupid argument. Jews believe in God, reward/redemtpion, a soul and eternal life whether you want to make stuff about them or not. You are the ones who cannot apply easy logic. If 93% of the world can get it, why can't you? That's what you should ask yourself. And I already know your answer. You don't want to believe in God. I happen to know God exists well beyond any doubt. Some day you will too.
Oopsie, I guess you didn't see Nyarlathotep's post.
Blah blah blah about the rest. You're just repeating the same old shit now despite being presented with evidence to the contrary.
