Good morrow kind readers! I know that my posts haven’t been very prolific in the last month, I was busy eating babies and performing all of the other rituals that people expect us ungodly atheists to be performing! So far ‘Our Lord Satan’ hasn’t done shit for my lottery numbers OR given me the clairvoyance to find the Death Star plans! But that shit aside, let me run down this weeks reasons for my being a strong anti-theist. This position is held by those of us in the atheist community who DO NOT wish that god was real! We are the ones that feel that a 24/7 cosmic overlord is actually a BAD thing and do NOT want a kindly old grandfather in a white robe to be able to see us as we are masturbating! We have a Pope for that! Anyway, the reasons!
First there is the 20 year old who is fulfilling ‘God’s Plan’ and dealing with an aggressive form of M.S and will never see a 30th birthday!, Second there is the two children 4 and 2yrs old who’s mom went off the road and was killed leaving the 4 yr old to rescue the 2 yr old. After the horriffic accident and having to climb over their mother’s dead corpse, two fishermen discovered them huddled underneath a blanket close to the car and took them to a hospital. Of course assholes had to write in that it was ‘God’s Will’ that brought the fishermen to the aid of the kids! Really?! Thank ‘Our Lord’ that he couldn’t be bothered to begin with NOT letting 2 little kids endure that horror! Thanks be to god! Also, third, the Kartrashians are still alive! Is this not evidence of the absence of a merciful god? Four, Honey BooBoo! Five, thousands of innocent children still suffer in the world while an imaginary god grants us free will to kill them! These are just a few reasons, more will surely follow!
Some people are just fucked in the brain pan! Yes an almighty being sent forth ‘His’ followers to write a book in several languages that would become dead forcing scholars paid by kings to interpret it as well as they could while deleting any references injurious to the present king’s rule! Sounds like a being that knows all and sees all!
As I write this blog I will include certain arguements against deism just as info to those who read so that when they are attacked by zealots they can cite facts and logical conclusion contained within these writings. I will include more in-depth references as the blog goes on and try to provide a witty delivery to make the slice even deeper! Why do I have a boner for religion do you ask? Why are us atheists SO angry? Answer: I’m not! I am just providing something for those in MY community, something that they can use to strengthen their position against the media machine that drives organized religion. Also, I believe that religion NEEDS to be approached with aggression due to it’s infectious nature and because of the lies that it spreads. I live in a small town where if you actually are brave enough to say that you don’t believe in god then you had better be prepared for a bunch of ‘are you insane!’ looks and a disbelief that you could actually put such blasphemy into words!
The great writer Christopher Hitchens once said, “That which can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof.” So if you use that logic as I most certainly do, then you can look a theist in the face and say, “Why should I have to prove to YOU that I am right when you can’t cite ONE SHRED of evidence for YOUR beliefs.” This can be said with absolute conviction as it is patently ridiculous for anyone to attempt to cite proof of biblical happenstance! There is none and no scientist worth a degree in his/her field will back ‘scientific’ evidence proving religious claims. The very fact that a sane stable person can believe in bronze age mythology just because it was told to them by their parents attests to the lemming-like nature of most of humanity. I didn’t believe that Jesus walked on water when I was 11 years old and I was an undereducated mook who threw rocks at windows for fun! It totally boggles my mind that there are people out there with degrees in science that believe in god!
Besides not believing in god, I am also an anti-theist. I have no wish for the stories of the bible to be true or for a cosmic deity to have watch over me 24/7;it’s creepy! I DO believe that agnostics are just atheists without balls, as John Stewart puts it. I feel sorry for atheists who say that they wish it were true and that they could believe in god! I wish that I had a better understanding of the process of human life and also wish I had more than my allotted years, but not on the condition that I am guided by any of the gods that men on this Earth have created! These gods are the ridiculous creations of feeble-minded tribesmen trying to control their fellow humans and they did a piss-poor job of most of it if you are not a lemming who believes every fairy tale that you are told!
If you were to raise two human beings in a vaacum of knowledge and tell them that everything that you give them to read was absolute truth, then you could give one the bible and one a copy of Grimm’s Fairy Tales and they would not be able to tell the fairy stories from the OTHER fairy stories! Well, thats my post for today. I will try not to leave such a time gap between posts. Now I am off to either pull my pud or go to church, I just can’t tell which one is more of a waste of my time! Peace!!
