A rant
So you get ready to fight. You train, you eat your protein, you try your best to improve.
You watch videos online everyday, looking at the different strategies to use in battle, and try your best to understand every possible jab and stance.

You know this shit. You're ready

The day of the fight comes, and you see your enemy. What you see before you is a tad different then what you expected. For one, it looks like he's only been practices his punches, because his arms are ripped and his legs are completely fragile. Oh fuck, drop the "s" because his right arm is probably the only part of his body he practiced using.

But you shrug, he challenged you to the fight so you expect that he is worth some attention. You step over the chalk and into the makeshift circle. People surround you shouting "fight! fight! fight" and your opponent chuckles to himself something about a "one hit KO" and steps into the circle as well, poised for action. Your vein pops a little at the snide remark, ready for anything.

Someone in the back rings a bell, signaling the start of the fight. Wiping the premature sweat on your forehead, you quickly think of your method of attack. But the opponent runs straight at you, completely taking you off guard. You prepared in a defensive stance, flexing and waiting for the moment to str-

Wait. He's running past you. With his strong arm, the opponent pierces the air with a lightning fast fist aimed at some poor fellow in the audience. As screams of surprise and anguish come from behind you, you turn around in horror to see your opponent beating the everloving shit out of the poor bystander. Holding up the now unconscious man, the opponent laughs and tells you "I just knocked your ass out!"

You were an atheist, the man was a one trick theist, and the dude he just beat the shit out of was a scientist. Except not really a scientist; just some poor sap who happened to have a chemistry set on his shirt.

This is how i feel sometimes when i read theist arguments trying to disprove evolution, the big bang, and abiogenesis when all I wanted to debate was faith and evidence for god. Like I just watch some innocent bystander get beat up when i was the guy he was supposed to battle.


And no, I'm not saying all theists attack science. but the ones that do need to realize how stupid it is.

Just saiyan

It's only a debate if both parties are willing to let each other's opinions change their own.
If you aren't willing to change in light of learning more about what you fight for, what the hell are you doing expecting the other party to want to change?

One word: Superman punch. Drinking Beverage

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

So tell them that. Then, give them the 5 point palm exploding heart technique.

That's hilarious XDD

Metaphorically it's definitely as easy as that. But for some reason when you point this out they continue to claim that science is my god and hitchens is my prophet o.o

If we carry that back into the analogy, my opponent would continue to wave that poor unconscious bastard around the room saying "I WIN I WIN" and 66% of the audience also think that this is how fighting works.

or, to hyperbolize less they have it stuck in their brains that scientific theories are the reason for atheists. Aside from masturbation and big titty porn of course. Though theres no denying the latter is a compelling point Wink

Forget the punch man, we should use that cellophane shit he threw at the badguy in that one movie

You contradict yourself. An attack on abiogenesis isn't an attack on science.Angel

Masturbation and porn are dirty and evil.
