4. Atheist Fundamentalists don't even know they are Atheists.

 

Most of the time when someone asks if you believe in God, they mean their God (e.g., the Christian God). I don't believe in the Christian concept of God, therefore I am labeled as an Atheist. I do find some "Gods" interesting, like those of Pantheism, Shinto, Buddhism, Taoism, etc. But mostly I go with Einstein's God.

"I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings. (Albert Einstein)"

7. You are a heathen.

 

There are heretics, heathens, and atheists. Heretics are other Christians who are very confused and used to have to be put to death on the spot. Heathens have a chance to be converted, and then they are put to death when they don't. Atheists are horrible people who eat babies and need to be exterminated without mercy.

8. Yes I probably qualify as a Heathen. But the so-called conversions of Heathens

 

only lasts as long as the free soup holds out.

10. Or until they're off to the next heathen

They never understand that lip service is all they're ever going to get and only enough lip service to send them on their way. Getting rid of them is usually a priority, people who are bucking for sainthood being the most unpleasant people on the planet.

13. Or not even that long.

When Xianity was just getting started, its evangelists would routinely take credit for converting thousands of heathens.

But those heathens hadn't been converted at all. They just came out to gawk at freaks like Simeon Stylites (who sat on top of a pole for weeks at a time, which somehow glorified Gawd).

When the show was over, the heathens went back home and continued their heathenism. But just for showing up, they got included in the conversion to Xianity head-count.

It was an amazing piece of duplicity. Covered in detail in Ramsey McMullen's book "Christianizing the Roman Empire."

And they're pulling the same scam to this very day, using the Internet. That really amazes me. Two thousand years later, the same damn shell game.

I know this because I sometimes poke around Xian websites. Many of them claim "x) number of conversions to Jebus THIS MONTH ON THIS WEBSITE!"

The number really doesn't matter. Because simple math shows that if ALL the claims of all the different websites are true, the entire population of the United States would now be committed Fundie Xians. Or maybe the entire world. Probably several times over.

One site provides free downloads of the Bible, and extrapolates from its number of downloads that all those downloaders are now converted to Jesus. They don't even stop to consider that many of those D/L's may be (1) multiple D/L's by Xians to increase the numbers, (2) curious non-Xians, (3) non-believers looking for ammo, etc. etc.

Nope, if you downloaded a Bible from them, you are now counted as one of the Faithful, QED.

Like much of modern Xianity, it all reeks of desperation. IMO, anyway.

14. Not too different than when the Christian missionaries went to India to convert the Hindu's.

 

The Hindu's have a thousand gods and they welcomed Jesus as another fine god. When the missionaries returned home they counted them as converts. "They accepted Jesus."

16. Non-believers looking for ammo.

That would be me, often. I don't know whether to keep doing it, just to screw with their mythical numbers, or whether to pull out the actual book when I want to find something.

3. I'd like to hear some jokes about atheists...

What in the world would the "other side" say?

Get this... atheist children spend time in school studying and learning instead of praying! HAHAHAHAHA

Atheists think my superior intelligence is only a result of evolution! HAHAHAHAHA

Those atheists think Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a god, but they don't think Gawd is a god! HAHAHAHA

11. Yeah, that kind of a god would be worth the time and trouble

The god of assisted living worshiped by most contemporary Christians is incapable of doing anything without the help of his believers, who present him lists every day because he's the god in a box, their personal savior. He's such a little, helpless god that one wonders why they bother.

12. Don't get me started. I love it when the winner of a race is interviewed and he/she thanks God for

 

allowing them to win. I think it's a bit audacious, but more than that, do the losers hold God responsible for their losses.

And those altruists that pray for world peace, do they think they need to remind God of the need? Maybe God would say something like this, "World Peace? Ah shit, I knew I forgot something. I should have made a list." Actually, he was distracted by concentrating on who wins the 100 yard dash at Kokomo Jr. High.

15. Sorry, but that's impossible.

If NDT were really God, he would have spoken to all the asshole believers and told them to chill the fuck out.
