RE: Jeremy Walker the nihilist
Your idiotic rant below is not atheism and does not describe atheism at all. Your iiotic rant is just your own straw man.

we exist as accidental collocations of atoms. we are here because we evolved from something that somehow came to be long ago without any planning or intention behind it.

we coexist with the roach and maggot and rat who like them, will suffer decay and eventually the cessation of biological life.

we have thoughts about ourselves that make us different from the maggot. we are not better or worse off than they for this. we just are different than they.

some of us think we are special or better than the maggot because we can think these thoughts or have certain feelings about other creatures, but this thinking is not in accordance with reality. its illusory.

I can be reasonably certain I met someone walking down the street today, because I've had the same experience of other people many times, and have learned since an early age to distinguish them from other animals, trees, and discount store mannequins holding signs.

This experience is in no way comparable to hearing a voice in your head, and deciding it comes from an outside source, and that source must be the Abrahamic God.

A voice in my head was not the cause for me believing in God. Sorry.

Strawman. The experience of meeting a person on the street is in no way comparable to "meeting God" and deciding "God exists" because "you met God"

Implicit trust given without reason, validation, experience, verification, or any semblance of truth; is gullibility.

I trust my parents, they have given me many reasons to over my life; but even this trust is couched with skepticism, because of the knowledge that my parents are limited, biased, and fallible human beings.

You implicitly trust an imaginary pan-dimensional space-wizard that you attribute perfection to, and because this you never apply any skepticism to anything you attribute to your god concept. That is your cosmic loophole. This is why you fail to think critically.

I do not trust God without reason, justification, validation, experience, verification or any semblance of truth.

My parents are fallible too but this does not make my trust in them couched with skepticism.

They can mess up. They do mess up. I still trust them though. Nor am I skeptical about trusting them.

I hope you apply this same reasoning to your trust in fallible men and women who engage in scientific research. I hope your trust in them is couched in skepticism by virtue of their fallibility.

What is your reason for being here on this forum.

And 'the same as yours' isn't an answer...it's a cop out.

Really...what drives you? Something in a form of self-flagellation...I don't think that's it. So, how about an answer to your reason or motive, as it were.

He's angry as fuck that we would dare to reject his fairy tale superstitions, and he's here because he thinks that his superior Dunning-Krueger Skillz will cause us all to bow to his "ministry" and convert to his batshit-crazy superstitions.

Of course it is. If you think your god is talking to you and you hear his "voice" , You are high like I always suspected.

I am neither angry nor do I desire for you to bow to my ministry or convert to Christianity. For I do not desire for you to do anything against your will.
