5 Lies Atheist Tell (WARNING! May Cause Brain Shrinkage!)

1. The Biggest One- THERE IS NO GOD. They would have no problem telling a dying child there is NO God. Clearly they have no idea if there is or there isn’t. They assume their conclusion is the only right one.

2. They say they have “Open Minds”. We know that is not the case. When presented with spiritual issues they always dismiss it as fictitious, invalid or unsupported stories.

3. Christianity teaches you to not think. Atheist assume that the Bible soemhow teaches Christians to not use your brain. This is clearly not the case.

“My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge” (Hos 4:6)
“For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her” (Prov 8:11)
“Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline, and understanding” (Prov 23:23)
 
4. Science exists despite religion.

Truth: Science exists specifically because of religion. The scientific method comes from studying philosophy and Newtonian physics comes from studying astronomy. Religion caused people to study both philosophy and astronomy.

5. They Don’t Care If There Is Or Isn’t A God. Deep down inside of everyone’s heart there is a missing element that is always questioning, searching and longing to find God. They may try to ignore it but it still remains there.

 :eek:

Wow. There's enough disconnect here to derail a train. I thought this website was satire, but apparently it isn't. If this is the level of logic we get from theists, I might have to put one of those plastic covers on my keyboard to keep the internet drool from shorting out my computer.

Get the platsic covers now; it's spreading!

No seriously, this article made me facepalm irl.
E = Mc²

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

Yeah, the facepalm level is high. I read it with a wtf? and had to double check to make sure it wasn't the Onion or something. The worst part is that these people breed and reproduce.

Anybody count the bold assertions? Here's my favorite: "Religion caused people to study both philosophy and astronomy."
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

tbh, this doesn't feel like anything new. Every time you see a christian on youtube talking about atheism they say the same thing.

"How can you prove god doesn't exist if you've never meet him?"

Thanks for posting that bullshit.  And, no, I didn't do a face palm.  I just did a simple eye roll.

It's strange watching someone who doesn't know what he's talking about speaking with such pompous authority.

Yep. Science and research made the discovering of insulin and how to produce it. Me and every insulin dependent diabetic on the planet owes that to science that we're even alive now.
