Church of the Lorem Ipsum
In my short time here, I've discovered that TTA is a magnet for the wondrous world of logical and scientific theists and their undeniable proofs that we as mere atheists just cannot seem to fathom.

Stop laughing. Seriously. In their honor, I am starting the Church of the Lorem Ipsum where we can share these nuggets. What sort of nugget? Anything that AlephBetSoup ever said, a lot of EGor's proofs, and Ray Comfort's love of bananas. These are not just a run-of-the-mill Poe. No, my acolytes, they believe in this gibberish.

To begin, I shall peruse Hundreds of Proofs of God while I find ways to confuse atheists.

Just a thread to share some of the confusing rants of people like Aleph, etc. Not a real church. Smile

That list is hilarious, and unfortunately all too true.

ARGUMENT FROM WOW
(1) When I look into the sky and see all the pretty stars, all those galaxies...
(2) Wow.
(3) Therefore, God exists.

In my experience they mostly boil down to
ARGUMENT FROM EASIER
(1) Science takes a lot of thought and is hard
(2) God is an easy answer
(3) Therefore, god exists

This from one of Egor’s Minions on the other forum...I nearly spit out my coffee.

"I don't get how there are so many young people who are atheists. It's like its a fad. And when you ask them why they're an atheist, they say there's no proof of God. But I think there's lots of proof. Just look around. The trees didn’t get there just by chance. same with animals and bugs.” Laughat

The table is god? You and I are god? Great! I'm going to go out and create me my own universe!

RE: Church of the Lorem Ipsum
My favorite:

ARGUMENT FROM HALF A WING
(1) Half of a wing is useless!
(2) Therefore, God exists.

RE: Church of the Lorem Ipsum
Quote:(1) Check out the world/universe/giraffe. Isn't it complex?
(2) Only God could have made them so complex.
(3) Therefore, God exists.

Me- "but look at the giraffe's unnecessarily long recurrent laryngeal nerve."

Quote:(1) Yep, needlessly complex, just like God.
(2) Therefore, God exists.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Church of the Lorem Ipsum
I've heard the half wing argument and arguments similar to the giraffe. Usually I hear the eye excuse.

The eye is so complex. Therefore, God.

I usually hear just some mumbling, never paid any attention to what they were saying...
