doing it. Love, pain, empathy, or any emotion would cease to exist;
moreover, so what if you love your family too much to do it... what does
it matter? It's not like you're going to care when you're dead... or
even know. So seriously... why don't you just commit suicide?



See... this is kind of a terrible question.
No, that's a terrible rejoinder. Atheists wouldn't commit suicide precisely because this is all there is.

“The absurd man will not commit suicide; he wants to live, without relinquishing any of his certainty, without a future, without hope, without illusions … and without resignation either. He stares at death with passionate attention and this fascination liberates him. He experiences the 'divine irresponsibility' of the condemned man.” - Sartre

RE: Ask a Theist!
Can you find one positive quality in Satan?

If you haven't, I know of one, and am willing to share it with you. If you want to hear it, of course.

On a side note, I didn't find it. It was a christian I was neighbors with, but it was interesting.

RE: Ask a Theist!
I found some video on youtube, and this guy is going on some big rant about how Calvanism is a retarded religion. He talks about how stupid they are for believing in evolution. Thought you might want to see it. Tell me what you think.

*imitates Don LaFontaine* It was a typical day in a typical neighborhood. Then one day something came up and threw typical out the friggin' window...

Not really. My neighbor is a pretty devout Chrisitan, bath with Mary on the front lawn (did I say that right?), inspirational biblical quotes on front window.

So I asked the question, and he said he'd think on it. A couple days later I see him coming in from work, and he comes up to me and said that if there was anything Satan has as a positive quality, is perseverance.

Try putting that on one of those motivational posters. That'd sell!

The arguments made in that video are interesting. I'm looking forward to KC's evaluation. Smile

Interesting yes, but KC will probably get a bit annoyed over it. He does throw out some insulting comments.
