Theists say the dumbest things
Have you come across some even-more-idiotic-stuff than the usual nonsense being spouted by a theist?

Some examples I've encountered:

"When you know the LORD you have no need for masturbation."

"Sex education classes in our public schools are promoting incest."

"We don’t have to worry about Climate Change, the Second Coming is at hand."

"Graffiti is a sign of the abandonment of God."

"While fantasising about another woman while impregnating your wife, the child will be a homosexual"

"....those who have sexual intercourse with their hands (masturbate) will find their hands pregnant in the afterlife."

"All those who keep pigeons above the roofs of their houses must stop doing this.....the ban is intended to put a stop to the greater criminal act of harming one's Muslim and Muslim women neighbours, revealing the genitals and wasting time"

"The value of Pi in the bible is 3. This not incorrect because Hebrew does not have decimal places."

"Atheists cherry-pick the bible and quote stuff they don't understand"

"A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they’re gay."

"There are a lot of things I have concluded to be wrong, without studying them in depth. Evolution is one of them. The fact that I don't know much about it doesn't bother me the least."


Feel free to share your favourites.

The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike

RE: Theists say the dumbest things
Here is a gem from a FB discussion I am in on Free Will.

Quote:From personal experience: I did not choose to be a believer. When I became a believer I mentally fought it kicking and screaming, debating internally and trying desperately to fight the fact that I was not the lord of myself. Prior to believing I was an atheist that delighted in ridiculing and mocking Christians. The very first time (8/13/90) I heard a clear biblically accurate depiction of the gospel I was rushed headlong into a faith I did not want. The very next day after reading Hebrews I became a full believer and asked God for forgiveness for my sins and repented. A friend, who did not know I had become a believer, told me I visibly looked different. I did not have free will in my path to becoming a believer. The people who are responsible for me hearing the gospel may have had free will in sharing it, but I did not have free will in believing it.

Congrats, now you can make the same claim that your religion made you a better person just like new Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus (some sects) claim. Shoot, even atheists can make the same statement.

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
- Paul Dirac

The #1 goat fucking stupid statement I've ever heard (from a young, dumb female Southern Baptist)---

"If the King James Bible was good enough for Jesus to read, it's good enough for ME!!!"

.......

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

That's right up there with the apocryphal Texas politician who supposedly argued against bilingual education by saying "If English was good enough for Jesus, ...".

Friend: "So you never go to church?"
Me: "No, we don't believe in God."
Friend: "Oh, ok."

RE: Theists say the dumbest things
Oh boy, oh boy, I get to sound like an anti-theist! Tongue No, in all seriousness, I've been saving gems from some of the people I know and groups I'm in for this exact situation!
  • If Hillary is elected she will jail AND KILL (emphasis not mine) nuns who refuse to perform public abortions in her first 100 days!
  • Thank God for President Trump, a true man of God!
  • I'm a convert from Sun worship.
  • Krogers is trying to make me work on Sunday! I shouldn't have to work on Sundy [sic] because of my 1st amendment rights.
  • Well, I'm sure you've all seen this by now....the Pope says evolution and the Big Bang happened...not my Pope.
  • So Mother Teresa is due to be canonized. Watch for militant atheists throwing a fit an [sic] luring more souls into apostasy and hell.
  • I think that equesteria is a perfect representation of pre vatican II catholic church. Pope francis is a liberal cuck XD mohammadans invade christiandom and the "pope" is allowing all the butchering of good christians to be butchered. (I can't even begin to place all the 'sic' needed.)
  • They probably didn't believe a kid who is bullied, since he wasn't gay. I've noticed school anti-bullying efforts are almost entirely made to combat "homophobia"."
  • Cathars had the blood of the Faery
  • Great video here from You Tube channel Sensus Fidelium on combating the Occult, Harry Potter, Yoga, and Chi!!
  • Joe Nickell? Anyone who tries to downgrade Catholic Miracles from being Divine Intervention down to Natural means is taking all the Credit away from God. His Claims are Fraudulent in my Opinion.
  • Young people are increasingly involved in the occult!
  • Sleep disturbances are one of the first indicators of early stages in demonic oppression...
  • I welcome global warming. This 9° weather has outlived its welcome. What have the ice caps ever done for any of us anyway?
  • Truth is absolute. The right answer is right 100% of the time, and the wrong answer is wrong 100% of the time. If it is true, it is true for everyone everywhere, regardless of who believes it or is even aware of it. Subjectivity is a farce and leads to all types of immoral and abominable things.
  • I don't care how many sociology, political science or liberal arts degrees you hold, how many officially recognized titles you have in front of your name, or how many people agree with you.
  • Jesus was not a socialist, Bernie Sanders was NO ONE'S SAVIOR!
  • "Happiness" is a selfish, short-sighted and impractical goal to live for.
  • I'm so glad to have gotten my 60 day coin today at Celebrating Recovery for conquering my issues with Pride.
  • I kinda get the subjectivist worldview to a certain extent, but it seems like today there is a push to eradicate reality itself.
  • If God "ruined your life," consider yourself #blessed. The comfortable life is reserved for enemies of God. James 4:4 #RepentAndBelieve
  • If anyone would like to hear me indoctrinate and brainwash some teenagers with dat archaic Bible tho, I'll be speaking at the LIFT youth group at the [name of church and campus removed for privacy] campus tonight at 6:30. Big Grin
  • We're gonna be roughing it for the staff retreat! (Next photo was from their ski resort an hour later...)
  • IF YOU ARE GOING TO COMMENT, here are the rules: • Do not comment unless you read the article in its entirety • If you do comment and you disagree with the article, make sure to back up your argument with scripture. No other comments will be allowed. I am dead serious about this!
  • Jonas went to our youth group. I haven't seen him in awhile but he's not the type of person who would ever hurt anybody else on purpose. Please pray. (Jonas stabbed a man to death with a sword...)
  • I think it's dying, and probably it should if it's going to keep going in the direction that it has been. It has stopped preaching the gospel of the one true Jesus Christ and has moved to a more watered-down, vague gospel that is "non-offensive" to people who believe in different versions of Jesus (such as Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses). For example, a few years ago I listened to a message about the power of positive thinking, with God only mentioned a handful of times and Jesus not mentioned at all. That's not the Gospel, that's New Age spiritualism, and it has no place under the banner of Christ.
  • Well that's OK, having a booth at Jesus Fest isn't supposed to be for profit, it's an act of worship!
  • And for today's "Heresy Watch"...we have this female "pastor" who wrote a book talking about how it's actually OK for Christian singles to have sex as long as it is "mutually pleasurable and affirming," basically making the argument that it's "not fair" for Christian singles to not be able to enjoy sexual intimacy, especially singles who are single by circumstance. No, Mrs. McCleneghan, it is not "our unwillingness to open ourselves up to the abundance of life's created goodness...that often leaves us feeling empty." What leaves us feeling empty is when we try to put created idols where only Jesus should be. What leaves the celibate feeling empty is when they don't allow Jesus to be ENOUGH for them, instead buying into the lie that humans "need" sex for anything other than reproduction, and that God is being "unfair" by mandating that sex be constrained to the confines of marriage. "But who are you, O man, to answer back to God?" - Romans 9:20a
  • If you're Living Your Best Life Now, you're headed for hell.
  • Scripture overshadows opinion. It doesn't matter what I "think" or how I "feel." All that matters is what God has declared to be true in scripture.

Need to think of a witty signature.

Sadly I think those brain cells are irreplaceable after they pulled a Jonestown together... Sad

But just in case we need to pick off survivors, have a few more:

"You don't really believe that stuff, do you?" (Re: Evolution)

"They haven't found the missing link, so it's all fake."

"Harry Potter leads children into witchcraft!"

"We can't let a gay work with children!"

"Some of us have more important things to do [than prayer in a prayer chapel]."

"Nobody reads anymore." (Justifying shutting down a church library and making it into office space.)

"It's a mortal sin to vote Democrat."

"You can't be a Catholic and a Democrat."

And from a student reaction paper I was given as an example in a pedagogy course in grad school:

"The criminal justice system can not be wrong because it is an instrument of God's holy will upon the Earth. Since God can't be wrong, neither can the system."

Edit:
"Praise be to our Lord Jesus Christ! Jesus saved me from practicing aikido"

This one jumped out at me:
I'm so glad to have gotten my 60 day coin today at Celebrating Recovery for conquering my issues with Pride.

I just looked up the Celebrating Recovery folks. I was kind of disappointed--I had hoped there would be a separate program for every sin...

I do have to wonder what the people in that program with significant substance abuse issues think of the guy who's joined because he's just too darned proud (and then humble-brags about his 60-day coin).
