Lightbulb No Goodness you say? Then you are not Good one.
Fact is: the false atheist disbelieves in the Good.

Then, the false atheism makes no Good.

So, the false atheism makes only Evil.

Therefore, the false atheist sins constantly.

The Atheism hates all false gods, it calls them "idols". Do you follow?

The False atheism hates the True God. The false atheism hates secretly: it dislikes the God of the Bible.

Lack of belief is lack. Are you lacking? Term "Lacking person" means "disabled", "cripple". Are you lacking faith?

Not you again.

Didn't you get tired trolling AF? Please spare us your drivel.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

RE: No Goodness you say? Then you are not Good one.
Okay, so let's state the obvious.

Borg here is saying that the only good to be had is God (and maybe some associated concepts, like Jesus, angels, Eastern Orthodoxy, and circumcised foreskins). Because atheists deny that God exists, he therefore equivocates that atheists deny that goodness exists. He sticks the word "false" in everywhere because he don't English good and can't find a competent translator program.

In other words, WHAT is being done, or what the consequences are, are irrelevant to Borg's notion of good and evil. All that matters, to him, is whether it is done with a belief in God.

By this logic, the genocides of the Old Testament are good BECAUSE they are associated with God. The slavery rules of the Old Testament are good BECAUSE they are associated with God. The mass slaughter done by God Himself is good BECAUSE it's God. The quality or nature of the acts is irrelevant to whether or not it counts as good or evil.

Similarly, when Communist Russia conducted bloody purges, it was evil because it was not done in the name of a god, but when Tsarist Russia did the same thing, that was good because they were Eastern Orthodox purges. When Communist Russia committed pogroms against the Jews, that was evil, because they didn't worship a god, but when the Eastern Orthodox church placed the blood libel of Jewish Deicide into their liturgy (and has retained it to this day), provoking countless acts of violence against the Jewish people, that's good. The content, consequences, and intent of the actions mean nothing to him. When a Christian doctor helps heal the sick, that is good, but when an atheist doctor helps heal the sick, that is evil.

Borg's morality boils down to "We are good by definition, and people who are not us are evil by definition." No compassion, no humanity, no empathy, no desire for justice. Just us versus them.

And you know what? That's pretty Biblical. There are exceptions to this idea in the Bible, but they're silver linings in a dark cloud. This isn't just Borg being dumb. (Not that he isn't, but it goes beyond that. Borg's attitudes are an expression of Eastern Orthodoxy in general, and of Christianity in general, and of religion in general.

This is what they have produced. This is the product of the guidance and teachings of God.

Oh, I'm sure some theists will say, no, this is not the only way it can work, this is what happens when it goes wrong. But that would be conceding the point that it DOES GO WRONG. Think of religion like a drug that is supposed to cure (among other things) various moral ills. What's its success rate? What's its failure rate? How often does it produce toxic side-effects? How does it stack up against a placebo?

Borg is a toxic side effect. How many are like him? What's the instance rate of toxic side effects? Just how hard do we have to wrack our brains to think of someone we know who is just as twisted and hateful BECAUSE of religion? To think of times and ways in which atrocities have been done in the name of religion?

It's not hard at all.

Congratulations, Borg. You're yet another exhibit in why trying out religion is a bad idea.

Hate (of anything) is not a tenet of atheism.
Atheism calls nothing "idols", false gods or otherwise.
False atheism is not a thing that exists.
There is no True God.

Atheism is a lack of belief in a god or gods. Nothing more, nothing less. It can't be false. You either are or are not an atheist. Do you follow?
