The go a little easy on theists thread
I assume there are some theists here?

Even the most hard headed rationalists among us get through the day without always demanding absolute proof of everything. Right?

Challenge to theists: Never mind absolute proof, give us some reason to suppose that the existence of God might be a plausible inference.

Warning: "Things we don't know" is not a reason to believe made up shit, so don't try and pull that one.

Any takers?

Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

RE: The go a little easy on theists thread
The reason we're (TTA) are hard on theists is because they come to an atheist forum with pure intentions on converting us and truly believing they can do so. We simply ask them that if they want us to believe in God they better provide us with some proof.
Not one has done so. Not our fault.

RE: The go a little easy on theists thread
'Fraid it's not possible. Soon as you say "go easy" they hear "accept my bullshit without skepticism".

I go easy, if you don't crow from some roof top that your God is the only God and the rest of us better buck our ideas up then I got no problem and you can go right on with your life. If you *do*, then... well actually I still don't say shit, apart from places like here, but that's 'cos I'm a weener Tongue But I tend to give you the old evil eye and hope that something mildly uncomfortable like bronchitis will make you unable to reach your target audience...

My point is even going easy on them, I expect they've got nothing. Thumbsup

C'mon theists. Are there any here?

Never mind those meanies. I'll be a squish, at least for this thread. Angel

Got anything?

RE: The go a little easy on theists thread
Proof only applies to mathematics. Smartass

What I'd like to see is a demonstration that one of these two following things does not occur:

Theist projecting ego as identity of god.
Theist regurgitating spoon-fed ecclesiastical bullshit.

But those two things always seem to happen. For the most part, the theist seems incapable of thinking for himself, for skeptical analysis of his own thought process; and even when it does happen, the Rationalizer kicks in, and the theist disappears into his own navel in a whirlpool of circular logic.

And then there's the problem of being me. I remember being this proto-humanoid dying of freight in recognition of what I was looking at as being "the creator of the universe." Which is to say, why the fuck can I stand before Almighty God, and call him a motherfucking douchebag, yet they cannot? Can not even conceive of such a thing?

Keep coming up with the same answer. Ego. I mean, "motherfucking douchebag" cannot even apply to "creator of the universe;" but it sure seems to label the theist pretty well.

But then again, there's another problem with me. I have seen Void, and embraced it. I can hardly wait to end. Big Grin
