"Atheism exposed"

Posted by Michael Dickens on August 3, 2008

I am bored, so I am going to ridicule this site: http://atheismexposed.tripod.com/

“Are there decent people among atheists, therefore? Are there atheists who are kind and honest and respectful of others? Most probably. Are they “always” kind, honest and respectful? Probably not. If they choose to cheat on their “self-chosen” ethics who will know? Who will they answer to, when they “deviate”? If they want to rationalize their unethical actions (and the mind is an expert at this, as Freud taught us) who will be there to present to them the opposite viewpoint?”

There are two major flaws. The first one is, sure, atheists are not always totally respectful, but neither are religious people. The second one is, who will provide religious people with the opposite viewpoint?

“Atheists can choose to be decent people and may succeed in doing so to a significant extent, but they have human nature fighting against that choice. ”

And being religious somehow allows you to fight against that choice? That is false.

“Atheists consistently propose that an Eternal Being who created the vast universe cannot be proven to exist. On the other hand, the universe’s beginning cannot be denied. Thus a study of origins must stop at the beginning of the universe. Of course what comprises the universe is energy. Thus the origin of all is energy. This “vast” force manifests itself in the atom which is able to join with other atoms to create molecules, which in turn join together to create visible matter, that in turn (according to atheists) gradually evolved into simple life forms and over eons stunning life forms such as the butterfly, the dolphin, the eagle and then, I must say, the supreme manifestation of this blind energy: woman, with its stunningly sophisticated reproductive system meant to give life and a feeding system meant to maintain life. Out of woman, mindless energy brings forth beautiful babies that grow into adult humans with amazing “minds” able to reason, create and accomplish ever-more stunning feats. And all of this is the result of a force that can transform itself in all of the above, but has no mind, no intent, no universal plan. Ironically, this mindless energy can create mind, but it has none.

Thus the origin, the source of it all, is a titanic, creative force that has everything except “mind.” This is the god of atheists: a “mindless” God.”

I don’t hear atheists saying that woman is the supreme manifestation of evolution. And I guess you could say that this “creative force” could be called God, but it’s completely different from religious God.

“Many modern Nobel Prize winning “scientists” believe in God.”

There’s a difference between believing in God and believing all this Adam and Eve, God created the universe in 7 days crap. I think people instinctually believe in a sort of supernatural power that does something. I observe that many scientists see God in a way that doesn’t really scientifically affect the universe at all.

The site I am getting these quotes from is clearly biased towards Christians. It does not talk about any other religion’s belief in God. It also offers the absurd idea that atheists are responsible for most murders. This is not possible. Not only are there far less atheists than believers, many religions attempt to kill everyone of every other religion.

“IS RICHARD DAWKINS SATAN POSSESSED?”

Ha! You foolish people make me laugh.

This part is so funny, you have to see the whole thing. It describes behaviors as if that’s what all atheists are like.

“The President of a major American atheistic association was interviewed on a local TV station in my city. I was baffled by the man’s self-assuredness, his forcefulness and, most of all, his arrogance. The man concluded the interview with a perplexing statement: “No intelligent mind would ever believe in God.””

Yeah, because basing decisions on logic and calling that smart is very perplexing. Smart people don’t use logic, everybody knows that!

“Well-designed and well-funded web sites offer large quantities of material against religion, and Christianity in particular. ”

I see a lot more anti-atheist sites than anti-Christian sites.

“Without doubt, these sites have already succeeded in converting many young and impressionable believing minds into doubt and some into fanatical atheism. ”

I disagree. I’d say the same thing about Christianity.

“University professors with an atheistic or agnostic bent have further added to this trend by manipulating the minds of many young believing students with their pernicious arguments.”

“Pernicious” in this case means “logically sound, unlike arguments for the existence of God”.

And there’s always the 10 Commandments.

P.S. God is not bad. Religion is not entirely bad, either. But religion springs forth a lot of hate towards nonbelievers. A morally sound person will not become morally sound if they are religious, nor will they become less morally sound. A not morally sound person becomes less morally sound if they are religious. They can easily make justifications: “It’s God’s will.” They also want to convert everyone to their religion. Plus religion is frequently illogical; that’s annoying. 😉
