Facepalm Moments
We all had our facepalm moments where, after a discussion with a Theists, just wanted to *facepalm*. Anyways, I'm interested in hearing your facepalm stories.

My story: Nadir Ahmed


I am debating Nadir Ahmed, a Muslim apologist, and sent him this email:

Subject: Rofl!

2:65 And ye know of those of you who broke the Sabbath, how We said
unto
them: Be ye apes, despised and hated!
2:66 And We made it an example to their own and to succeeding
generations, and an admonition to the God-fearing.
2:67 And when Moses said unto his people: Lo! Allah commandeth you
that
ye sacrifice a cow, they said: Dost thou make game of us ? He
answered:
Allah forbid that I should be among the foolish!
2:68 They said: Pray for us unto thy Lord that He make clear to us
what
(cow) she is. (Moses) answered: Lo! He saith, Verily she is a
cow
neither with calf nor immature; (she is) between the two conditions;
so
do that which ye are commanded.
2:69 They said: Pray for us unto thy Lord that He make clear to us of
what colour she is. (Moses) answered: Lo! He saith: Verily she is a
yellow cow. Bright is her colour, gladdening beholders.
2:70 They said: Pray for us unto thy Lord that He make clear to us
what
(cow) she is. Lo! cows are much alike to us; and Lo! if Allah wills,
we
may be led aright.
2:71 (Moses) answered: Lo! He saith: Verily she is a cow unyoked; she
plougheth not the soil nor watereth the tilth; whole and without mark.
They said: Now thou bringest the truth. So they sacrificed her, though
almost they did not.
2:72 And (remember) when ye slew a man and disagreed concerning it and
Allah brought forth that which ye were hiding.
2:73 And We said: Smite him with some of it. Thus Allah bringeth the
dead to life and showeth you His portents so that ye may understand.
2:74 Then, even after that, your hearts were hardened and became as
rocks, or worse than rocks, for hardness. For indeed there are rocks
from out which rivers gush, and indeed there are rocks which split
asunder so that water floweth from them. And indeed there are rocks
which fall down for the fear of Allah. Allah is not unaware of what ye
do.

Is there ANY evidence for the above story? Do you really believe such
an
absurd story that a man was murdered and they hit him with a piece of
steak and he came to life to tell them his murderer? What evidence is
there?

Regards,
David



Anyway, his reply:


Quote:I pefer to believe in this rather than atheism, which teaches there is
no god, no good no evil therefore pouring gasoline on babies and
burning
them alive is neither good nor bad, just pointless indifference.


*facepalm*

Pouring gasoline on babies is just plain wrong .........

It totally ruins the flavour Big Grin.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

Tandoori chicken.

I have a lot of uncomfortable moments with theists but that's to be expected since I live with them.

The most uncomfortable thus far was when my mother inlaw was talking about something related to 2012 and my wife made a Mayan calender joke or something pertaining to the end of the world. Her mom just said it would be great because then she would finally be in heaven and her suffering would be over or some such nonsense.

We just looked at each other in silence and then left.

I could not have resisted the temptation of saying.... Yes, when you go to heaven, so would ours!

From my dA:

There is that moment when you're reading "Red Dragon" of the Hannable Lector series and you think, 'What dipshit religion has a 'Great Red Dragon'?" And then you google it and then you find out its the one your family is in.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.
Bury me with my guns on, so when I'm cast out of the sky, I can shoot the devil right between the eyes.

When I told my muslim gf creationists believe god made the earth 6000 years ago and she laughed saying "that's impossible!"...then she wen't on how god made the earth in 7 days. The worst thing is she didn't understand why I was facepalming so hard.

RE: Facepalm Moments
I'm a recently deconverted atheist husband with a Christian wife and a strongly christian extended family. Over the easter break I have gone to church for the first time since I told my wife about my change. My facepalm was in listening to a preacher who began his sermon saying that there were three earthquakes mentioned in the Bible, and that they were all tied together and related directly to each other. The first and second were when Jesus died and rose again, while the third was "not actually described as an earthquake" when the deep broke open and caused Noah's flood.
I ended up leaving to play with my children outside when he went on to say that "Christian scientists" had determined that the sin in the world was so bad before Noah's flood that the main cause of death of humans was homicide.

The fact that *anyone* can listen to this stuff for hours on end is a continuing source of amazement for me. How is it that people can look at a guy saying such stuff and not think "I am listening to a certified lunatic"...
