Theology for the Masses


Life is a search, for two things. Someone worth listening to, and someone worth talking to.

If you ever find someone who's both, marry them instantly. In the meantime, there's the stimulating debate on youtube videos.

CodenameCrychck: Explain to me what the point of trying to disprove God's existence if you don't think he exists?

Kapitano: The point, obviously, is that people like you who believe in fairytales...sometimes act on their beliefs. Yes, some people who believe in a magic man in the sky who tells them women are the property of their husbands...will treat their wives as property.

CodenameCrychck: Okay, 1. I'm a Jesus Freak and proud to be one. And fyi, not all of us are radical christians. 2. God did not tell husbands to beat their wives, you're thinking of Islam. 3. I believe that people liek you who demand proof of God, are really looking for someone to explain christianity to them because they want the empty void in their soul to be filled with the love of God.

Kapitano: Ah, the christian insistence that atheists are unhappy - despite the evidence. And that christians are fulfilled - despite the evidence.

And the usual failure to read their own holy book, or know anything about other religions.

What else? Oh yes, the complete inability to respond to the point which was actually put to them.

CodenameCrychck: Just the knowledge that Jesus died for me is fufulling enough and his love is eternal for me.

All I am doing is simply stating that I feel God around me and that is suffiencent proof enough for me.

Kapitano: You feel it and you think that makes it true. But if anyone else feels a different god, it's not true - only your god is 'proven' by a feeling.

CodenameCrychck: You're acting on a "feeling" that there is no God.

Kapitano: No, I have these things called reason and research. They tend to destroy faith.

CodenameCrychck: I have the bible, the book written by God. That's all I need for proof.

Kapitano: Where in the bible does it say it was written by god?

And even if it does, so what? I'm telling you right now that *I'm* god, and you've got to believe me because I'm god, right?

The Q'uran *does* claim to have been written by god. So does the book of Joseph Smith. So you're a muslim and a mormon too? No? Why not?

CodenameCrychck: I didn't bother anyone with my belief.

Kapitano: What do you think you're doing right now?

CodenameCrychck: You must have a feeling of emptiness.

Kapitano: And yet I do not. So either the universe is wrong, or your a-priori assertions are wrong. See if you can work out which one is possble.

CodenameCrychck: You keep badgering me about how you believe there's no God.

Kapitano: You are the one badgering an atheist video. I and others are responding to you. Had you forgotten that?

CodenameCrychck: It's time to grow-up and realize everyone has different faiths and not let a christian get to you.

Kapitano: If you *really* believed it was okay for everyone to have different faiths, you wouldn't have been so incensed by the video showing some gaps in yours.

CodenameCrychck: What about all the other religions in the world?

Kapitano: I'm not confronted with a hindu, a bahai or a buddhist. I'm confronted with a christian. Therefore the religion to be disproven is christianity. When you are confronted with a satanist, do you tell them why they shouldn't be a jew?

CodenameCrychck: Satanists worship Satan. Judaism are jews. You're like 50, you should know that. You do have a faith it's called being a atheist.

Kapitano: What kinds of meat do vegetarians eat? What colour hair do bald people have? Which whiskey to teetotallers drink? What is the lifestyle of a corpse?

Atheism isn't faith in the non-existence of a god - it's not having a faith.

You have no problem understanding that a homeless person don't go home to an un-home. But you still can't grasp that some people don't have a religion.

CodenameCrychck: You have faith that when you sit in a chair it won't break.

Kapitano: You're confusing belief in the absence of absolute proof, with faith that goes against the evidence.

I can't prove the sun will rise tomorrow, but I have good (not perfect) reason for thinking it will. You have faith in the various contradictory prophecies of the bible, even though none of them have been fulfilled.

Jesus told a crowd the end of the world would come within many of their lifetimes. It didn't.

CodenameCrychck: Frankly y'all offer the same response. I can't see God, I don't hear God. I don't smell God. By that logic that is stating you don't believe in oxygen because you can't see,smell,or hear oxygen. Plus, it's a two-way street.

Kapitano: Ask someone to strangle you and see what happens. Then get someone to renounce god and watch how nothing happens. Notice the difference?

CodenameCrychck: Yeah, you bother me with your atheism and I "bother" you with christianity."

Kapitano: No, you bother me with your stupidity. Just like a muslim creationist bothers me with *his* stupidity. Or an atheist 911 conspiracy theorist.

Post an argument that isn't stupid and I'll stop being bothered.

CodenameCrychck: You do have a faith it's called being a atheist and having no faith.

Kapitano: I love it when cretins tie themselvesup in knots.

CodenameCrychck: You're like 50 and you think Satanism is the same thing as Judaism.

Kapitano: Good to see your arithmetic hasn't improved.

And neither have your reading skills. What I wrote was: "I'm confronted with a christian. Therefore the religion to be disproven is christianity. When you are confronted with a satanist, do you tell them why they shouldn't be a jew?"

CodenameCrychck: I am a straight A math student, a straight A english student. And anyway, how am I a failure? You're the moron that thinks Jews are satanists. Anyway, you're a dinosaur, get back to your nursing home with your tank of oxygen.

Kapitano: You've been to my profile page to leave a braindead insult, seen my age...and you *still* get it wrong.

Someone as stupid as you couldn't have evolved by chance. You must be unintelligently designed.

CodenameCrychck: You really need to quit acting like a teenager when you're obviously an oldman. Go suck a giraffe, you freak.

As us teenagers say: OMFG! That's so random. Whatever, STFUAD loser.
