There is no such thing as "God"!
Consider yourself informed.
Before you get your panties in a wad, remember I didn't make you view this page. Go ahead and believe whatever you want. Go ahead and believe that the universe is run by a magic sky fairy, the great green arkleseizure, a flying plate of spaghetti, or a pair of magic alicorn sisters. Just don't go around pushing this nonsense on others as fact, especially children. Anyone who teaches children to ignore the scientific realities of the universe in favor of religious make-believe is the equivalent of a mental child molester and should be locked up.
It is natural to anthropomorphize anything that isn't fully understood. Putting a human face on nature or technology can make it easier to deal with, but it is incorrect to accept such as literal. One could define this "god" as all of the good in the universe. But ask any regular church goer if they are worshiping an abstract idea: "no, he be a person, he be livin in teh sky". Morons.
But eschewing or dismissing reality in favor of make-believe inhibits rational scientific thinking. On a larger scale, it inhibits the scientific capacity of the nation, as critical scientific jobs for next-generation technology all wind up going to the Chinese! Pushing religious beliefs off on to children also makes one a traitor to the United States of America.
Face it, the universe is a cold hard place. The truths are painful and ugly. Much about the universe is unknown. It is easier to believe the fluffy pink comfortable lies. So it is no wonder so many people subscribe to these archaic beliefs.
How is it even possible these days that so many idiots still seriously deny evolution? Trying to imagine the magnitude of small changes involved over billions of years a a population of trillions is not easy. But evolution is a real phenomena that can be observed and measured even on a small time scale. Would a parent tell their child that they can't be any better than them? That is what evolution is, small incremental improvements over numerous generations. Perhaps they watched too much Pokemon that mis-uses the term to mean "rank up"? Perhaps they envisioned a human popping out of a monkeys vagina? Oh, right their ancient story book told them it was so, and they are not allowed to question it.
There is no "life" after death. Imagine drawing a picture on a computer without saving to disk so it is only in RAM, and then you pull the plug. Does that picture magically "go" anywhere? No, it ceased to exist. Without power, each bit in RAM degrades until it reaches a natural undefined state. The human brain isn't that different in that respect. It is just a pile of organic cells acting as circuits that haphazardly store and process information. Deprived of oxygen, the cells die, and information is lost. Unlike computers, we can't copy or back up our brains. One could make a case for shared consciousness, but that is completely separate from knowledge or thought, which makes you "you".
You think your "god" is real? Show us the scientific proof it exists. The most exciting thing in science is being proven wrong! What's that? You "feel" it exists so it must be real? That is only evidence of mental illness. Your parents told you it is real? Oh dear, has anyone told you about Santa Claus yet? Parents tell their kids all kinds of things just to get them to shut up - that is also where the fairy tails about life after death come from.
Hey, I don't claim to "know" anything, and I don't expect anyone to absolutely believe me. People should question things and come to their own conclusions... oh, but that is SCIENCE, and and we can't have that now can we? One of the cornerstones of science and intelligent advancement is that everything should be questioned. But at odds with this, most religions have explicit rules against questioning said religion.
But it is understandable how people get sucked in to this mess. You automatically get to join one of their huge social groups if you claim to believe the same thing! Most religions are just a power grab to permit them fleece their flock of money, and hymens. And there are so few other social outlets these days for people who don't believe this crap. Even those that do not really believe the mumbo jumbo, just say the magic words, do the magic dance, wear the magic underpants, and poof, instant friends - if you don't mind people who are too stupid to live.
I have spent too much of my life arguing with idiots who can't even begin to comprehend what I have to say. I'm not going to argue with anyone about this. If you have read this far and don't agree with me, then just go stick your head back in the sand. I have had this religious crap shoved in my face for my entire life, constantly being told I am wrong. Something to consider is that most religious nuts have never even ONCE heard or considered the possibility that THEY may be wrong.
Yes, it is difficult for me to stay perfectly civil on such a topic. If this sort of thing is too sensitive for your soft little eyes or ears, then you came to the wrong fucking web page. After years of having this retarded dick shit pounded in my face, I am tired of it and wish these morons would die a miserable and horrible death, just like me. Fuck your sack of shit imaginary "god", fuck Mohammed, fuck Jesus, fuck your mom's magic underwear salesman, fuck the flying plate of spaghetti, and fuck your magic alicorn princess if you don't already.
This Penny Arcade comic seems to accurately describe what is happening to teaching science these days: Dropping Science
Fox 5 in Atlanta ran a story that A group of parents was "concerned" after an atheistic poem was passed around a class and read by dozens of Polk County's Cedartown Middle School students. Somehow they managed to report this with a straight face.
The poem, titled "Unicorn" talks about the non-existence of "God", comparing it to a mythical unicorn. Supposedly the poem was used as part of a Greek mythology lesson referring to Greek gods.
The parents got pissed off because they are retards who want to keep their children in an information vacuum.
The original poem is located here: https://www.slideshare.net/bluelotusjoy/johars-poem-1
God is Like a Mythical creature.
A few years back, religious groups had this "warning" sticker added to science text books in Alabama:
"Controversial theory?" There is nothing controversial about evolution unless you are so stupid that you subscribe to ancient beliefs about a magic sky being pooping the universe in to existence. It is perfect possible to see small evolutionary steps in some kinds of organisms and animals within a human lifetime.
Would you tell your child that they can not be any better than you are? If they did become better than you in some way and that was passed on to their future children, then that could be a tiny evolutionary step. Oh, but evolution doesn't exist so they are just a cookie cutter cut-out, right?
Now, the rest of it is fairly worded - the entire cornerstone of science is indeed "question everything". Science advances, new methods of finding answers are found, new data is collected, and theories are revised. People make mistakes. People lie and mis-inform. Not all answers are known. Not all questions are understood. One must always be ready to question, analyze, and correct. At the end of the day you have to believe what you have learned is as accurate as possible and apply that knowledge. If it works, great, if not then you may have found something new. That is the way science and reality works.
But putting this message in this context basically says "you don't have to believe any of this science stuff, ever".
I propose that the following sticker be placed on any book that contains
|Warning: This book contains material on religion. Religion is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, critically considered, and then flushed down the toilet.|
I recently came across a DOS/Windows 3.x computer program that contains a library of famous quotes. Many of these poke fun at various topics, including religion, although other quotes are more serious. There was a category for "Atheism", but most of these are just... stupid.
Nobody talks so constantly about God as those who insist that
there is no God.
Really? Let me think, when was the last time I head an atheist going on and on and on and on? Hmmm. Almost never. And although I post a few rants here, I almost never talk to anyone about it.
But flip on the TV or listen to any idiot talk and it is gerd this gerd that, and that is not even specifically religious programming. But sky fairy worshipers don't see this because they already surround themselves with this crap.
To be an atheist requires an infinitely greater measure of faith
than to receive all the great truths which atheism would deny.
Uh, truths? Idiot. Being an atheist requires an infinitely greater intelligence, and the ability to pick out bullshit child molesting lies.
Atheism is rather in the life than in the heart of man.
A little vague. Perhaps the point is that religious ideas come from irrational feelings and emotions ("the heart"), while "in the life" is reality and real life.
The atheist has no hope.
--J. F. Clarke
The theist has no brain.
Infidelity does not consist in believing or in disbelieving: it
consists in professing to believe what one does not believe.
Ok, that is at least an interesting take on a definition.
I don't believe in God because I don't believe in Mother Goose.
At least they got one good one in there.
There are no atheists in the foxholes of Bataan.
"We already had them killed" :P
An atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support.
--Fulton J. Sheen
Because invisible imaginary friends are so supportive.
I am an atheist, thank God!
Oh, a wise guy, eh?
That also demonstrates how religious beliefs are even woven in to spoken language.
Another sort of funny one from elsewhere: "Who are you to question why God made me not believe in him?"
An atheist is one who hopes the Lord will do nothing to disturb
--Franklin P. Jones
And a theist is one who hopes nature or logic will do nothing to disturb his/her idiotic belief.
There is no such thing as "God". Sorry about that. :-\
Did you know there is a government recognized atheist symbol?
Personally, I don't feel the need to tote around a symbol. But sometimes a symbol is the the best way to convey a simple message. In a world where nobody believed in imaginary sky fairies, there would not be a need for such a symbol.
There are a few other symbols such as a "zero set" (circle with a line through it). The atom symbol works well as it emphasizes a scientific approach. From a technical standpoint, the zero set is nice, simple, and neutral.
I don't like the ones that parody other religious symbols, because even displaying a religious symbol or using a religious word in any context gives it substance that it does not deserve.
Some say that science and religion are not mutually exclusive. They are indeed mutually exclusive. But many "scientists" do try to do both. It is like 2+2=4 at work, and when they get home 2+2=5. Science requires answers, accuracy, and proof. As long as someone stays in their limited corner of science, they may be able to avoid things that directly contradicts their beliefs. That doesn't make it right.
As it is, idiots go around wearing crosses or other symbols on jewelry and T-shirts with religious messages. They are so surrounded by this crap it never even occurs to them they are telling people like me to fuck off and die. They even do this in workplaces that are supposed to have policies against religious displays. Perhaps I should get a "There is no such thing as god" T-shirt? Right, I would be the one getting in to trouble for stating a simple fact.
I came across this news story from a few years back about a billboard from athiests.org that "sparked controversy".
"While the atheist group says the billboard isn't meant for Christians, some still find the ad offensive. Peggy Castiglioni says, “Putting children on billboards, I think is taking advantage of people’s heartstrings, and is inappropriate..”"
Perhaps they should take a look at some of the religious advertising that is out there. Ok, I admit, I have not looked at much lately but what I have seen sometimes does the same thing. Again, they surround themselves with this crap, so they don't see it.
