I defiantly agree there probably is no God so I am enjoying life.
I just go to church just in case there is a God.
When I die I just don’t want to burn in hell just in case I meet God
Have you read ‘Autobiography of God?”? A very funny, very irreverent look at the Book of Genesis (mainly) and also the rest of the Bible.
Atheists have no such commission. Atheists don’t care if they convert other people to their views.
I for one welcome our new atheist overlords.
I would try and be sympathetic but I can't stop laughing.
I have studied and participated in a large variety of belief systems. I don't necessarily believe in any of them. That is the beauty of being a free thinker. I can change beliefs to suit the occasion. Sorry for the confusion. It may not make sense to most but it works for me.
That sounds like something I could get into. I used to know all about the new age until i realized that most of it was repackaged Evangelical Christianity. I got really turned off to it when Daddy George Bush used many new age expressions in his inaugural speech. That scared the crap out of me.
But how do you know that Biblical God is the true God? If you go to church ‘just in case’, shouldn’t you also go to Mosque (just in case, what if Allah is the true God), to Synagogue, to Pagoda, to Gurudwara etc.?
If you are going to church just to buy insurance (‘just in case’), why not maximize your coverage and make sure that you go to heaven, no matter which God is the true God?
I knew it! I totally knew it!!! I seen this story on the news earlier and had to change the channel quickly in order to avoid my blood pressure from shooting through the roof!
How dare atheists capitalize on their freedom of speech and expression!!! This is an outrage!!! Sure, they can keep it all in check in the UK, but this is Canada we're talking about here...
It starts with the ads, and then before you know it, little old alley has his head in a noose for posting all those things about atheists!
Don't these organized atheist groups realize that when us churchies feel threatened we have no choice but to throw our arms in the air and try to find a way to fight back?
And fight we will!!! I personally am going to find out where all the agnostics hang out this weekend and will try to convert as many souls as I can!!!
Where's my bible? ... ... what the? ... "King James Version" ??? ...Don't we have something a little more current around here? ... "International translation version"? ... Darn it! ... Guess my "Amplified bible" will have to do...
Hey, Babe!!!??? .... I said... Hey Babe!!?? Do we have any holy water left???
*alley's imaginary live-in girlfriend politely reminds him that he's not catholic, and doesn't believe in holy water*
Darn it!!!... see what happens when my blood pressure goes up? I get all flustered!!!
Well, off to the atheist threads to do a little ideological battle...
I was trying to stay stress-free for awhile, not to mention spare all you guys the impact felt from my awesome debating skills...
"stay away from the big boy threads" I kept telling myself, be mellow, post a fun little short story (external - login to view) instead...
Well, like I said, guess I'll have to jump back into the serious threads for awhile. At least while I still have my head noose-free...
Some find that a very important view to force down peoples gullets. Follow Atheist logic. Man created relgion. Man created religion to spread as it does because man needs other people to view them as correct, to think as they think, in part to validate themselves. Lack of belief in god does not remove the reasons for his creation. Thats why many Atheists do things, like put up bus adverts.
lol Your imaginary live-in gf? Does she eat vegetables like the lion and ogre in that tv ad?
An atheist group was expected to submit an ad for approval yesterday that would be posted on metro Vancouver buses promoting the idea that there is no God.
Tyr, the Atheist group may well have a Charter challenge here, their freedom of expression is clearly violated. If the city accepts advertisements from religious groups, they must accept advertisement from Atheist groups. Whether they will launch a Charter challenge is a different matter, these challenges are not cheap.
