Most atheists spend almost no time countering your invisible friend. Once it is obvious how weak the bible is they drop it and move on like most people do with Santa. When it does come up it is because some cultist starts derping in front of them about things that can't possibly be true. If someone started claiming that a pink unicorn lives in their basement, most people would be like "WTF dude". In your mind that would mean they hate pink unicorns. Most sensible people would understand that isn't the case.Adama wrote:
Atheists hate God. If they didn't hate God, they wouldn't be so busy trying to counter Him. There are many atheists who claim to know the Bible more than believers do. Why would they take up such a task if they did not hate God? Is it just for sport? Why not spend their time doing things they enjoy, rather than bothering with a non-existent being? If God doesn't exist, why do they waste their time learning the Bible, trying to trip up Christians, speaking against Him? That would be foolishness to spend your time countering something that doesn't exist, especially when you claim you know God is non-existent. How stupid would it be to spend your time arguing against something that doesn't exist? Why would you bother with that? It makes no sense to hate someone who doesn't exist. If you don't believe God exists, you should not hate Him, you are quite correct here.
Winston, why does anyone speak against you? Do you think those people who speak against you are merely neutral? If they say they don't hate you, yet say and do things which demonstrate that they do hate you, can you say they don't really hate you?
The thing is, atheists know God exists. They just reject Him. You don't accept that.
Naturally this is not all atheists, just a significant portion of them so that I can say this. For example, would it be terrible to say Jews control banking? Surely not every Jew is in banking, but does that fact nullify that Jews are the bankers? If I said American women are skanks, does it matter if not every one of them is a skank?
See, you just did it yourself. You just called Atheists evil, amoral, and trying to get away with everything they can. Yet people who do such things, who break God's laws continually, don't hate Him. Sure sure. They just hate His rules. They're okay with Him. It's just His rules they despise. If you love to break His commandments, He says that means you hate HIM. In fact, when you read it, it says "despise". God says that those people who commit ungodly sin hate Him. You can't just hate His laws. He made those laws. Of course they hate God for His laws. God demands they live a certain way which they don't want to do.If the whole world were Atheists, many would simply do all the evil they want or can get away with at least.
A few people do it a lot more, people have hobbies. There are people who spend plenty of time arguing that the Germans should have drove straight to Moscow and others who say surrounding Kiev was the right move. Huge vicious fights on alt.history on if an invasion of Britain [Operation Sealion] was viable or ever could be viable without the intervention of alien space bats.
A very small group of people make it their career to counter your imaginary friend not out of hatred but because they wish to counter ignorance. It no more indicates hatred of your imaginary friend then someone who makes a living debunking astrology or people who claim to have powers or people who believe in chemtrails or "big pharma"
"Is it just for sport? Why not spend their time doing things they enjoy, rather than bothering with a non-existent being?"
Yes. some who do it, do it for sport. It can be jolly good fun for some people. Personally I enjoy it for short periods of time although I find it annoying after a bit of time because trying to have a reasonable conversation with a cultist is like talking to a brick wall.
Also atheists who do spend their time countering are not arguing with your imaginary friend, they are arguing with people like yourself who insist that your imaginary friend is real.
I've spoken out on the way Winston runs the board and some of the ideas he presents and the methods he employs in the pursuit of being a free thinker. Doesn't mean I hate him. I have to respect his willingness to be honest warts and all and his willing to put up with disagreement and harsh words.
Also what mental malfunction does a person have to have to think that anyone who argues with something someone else believes can only do so with hate in his heart. I don't even hate you. I think you are a fool, so much a fool that even Mr T would have problems giving you pity but that isn't hate. Far from it.
if atheists knew god existed they wouldn't be atheists. English, do you understand it maternal fornicator.
I'd say that although there might be a rare exception, I doubt that any atheist hates god. Although many of us look down on Jebus cultists the same way Jebus cultists and us for that matter look down on Wiccans, Hindus, pantheists etc, that does not imply hate.
He never said atheists were evil. He said that religion keeps some people from acting on their evil impulses. He is also wrong. religion has been staggeringly ineffective in keeping people along a moral path and atheists within a particular culture don't seem to be any more evil than their fellow cultists. There can be morality without theology, there is an entire branch of philosophy about it there are also strong human and cultural impulses to behaviour beyond cultism. But hey if you want to ask molested altar boys and orphans about how good their religious guardians and the people who protected them were, or those who were in religious order run residential schools about how one needs religion to be moral, go ahead.
I don't hate his rules because I hate his rules or whoever the real author was. I break them because I don't see any reason not to eat bacon or follow the other 600 rules in the OT. I wonder if Adama follows them. If not, does he hate those rules? Those rules that at one time were considered very important to his imaginary friend?
Pity you won't read any of this because I am blocked, not that it would do any good.
I think I have pointed out beyond any reasonable shred of doubt that you are way off base.
But hey, keep with your completely baseless claims. I guess you won't mind if I call you and your fellow cultists child molesters, it does seem to be a hobby of the more devote leaders. After all I don't need to back anything up you said.
Anyone who can't contemplate opposition and argument without bringing hate into the equation probably has mental health issues.
If someone was to strongly insist to Adama that Santa was real, he would argue the point.
Because he aruges the point Adama must hate Santa.
Because he hates Santa Clause he must believe that Santa. Based on his comments.
Therefore Adama must believe in Santa.
