    Cruz is a very sharp cat. I really like him, so far. He’s articulate and knowledgeable about the Constitution and law in ways so many other Republican figures haven’t been.

    This man is a leader.

    Yeah, you should have said “All y’all need to leave us alone.”

    That would have been Southern.

    @LibertarianSocialist

    You have attacked rational thinking within this very thread. You have failed to point out Ham’s irrational thinking, instead choosing to attack Christians in general in your comments.

    Listen, I think Ham’s a bit of a dolt. I could pick apart his words, but I came to this article more to learn about the “atheist TV network”, and Ham was just an another unpleasant portion of the story.

    Had you stuck to picking apart Ham’s illogical points, I would be supporting you. I’d even stand with you against people here who would attempt to assail your arguments. You haven’t done that, though, preferring to denigrate all believers, instead.

    Cheers.

    Socialism is a statist belief system. You are not an anarchist. It’s like the libertarians who call themselves “anarcho-capitalists”. They also aren’t capitalists.

    Why am I sensitive? You made statements irrelevant to the discussion and I asked for clarification. Usually those kinds of statements are a form of ad hominem, and I suggested this might be your tactic. That’s simple perception.

    Buddy, if you think Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Field Theory is the same as “facts”, there’s no way anyone can have a logical discussion with you.

    Also, if you think there’s anything “random” about transistors, lasers, thermometers or printed circuits, you’re woefully miss-educated. If there was anything random about those items they’d fail to work properly often enough to be useful in any meaningful way.

    The universe is in no way random, not even a little bit. Even random number generators aren’t random. Ever notice your iPod tends to play the same songs in the same sequence even though it’s set to shuffle? Until you re-shuffle your play list, but then you again get the same sequence.

    If the components used to build the iPod were so random in nature (which they aren’t, or the iPod wouldn’t function) you’d get a better result from your shuffle software. Dude, it’s literally possible to calculate the number of electrons that will whiz past a specific component at any given period of time. If the number were random, it would have been impossible to create the mathematical formula in the first place, much less to be able to build anything that would function.

    Who in the world up-voted such a silly comment?

    @Crescendo

    Wrong, my friend. The media agrees with Ted. That’s why it’s non-news.

    Global warming, environmentalism, animal rights, all of that garbage is about reducing world population before we all die from starvation and “using up all the natural rez0rces” – or something.

    Unfortunately, whenever someone resists theocratic rule, Christians view this as “anti-christian bigotry”….

    ….it grows from the same fetid place that “white rights” advocates get their anger…
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Okay, since this conversation wasn’t about either of those topics, are you now trying to accuse me of wanting a theocratic society? Are you accusing me of being a “white rights” advocate?

    Or were these more logical fallacy straw men for you to beat on, since you couldn’t address my original point?

    You know, I could do the same to you, but you also wouldn’t like it much and it wouldn’t advance the debate. I’m not a Christian – got a problem with them worshipping Jesus while the 1st Commandment is so very clear on the matter. I’ve never spoken of “white rights”. I’m not even sure what the heck you’re talking about there. I’m anti-statist, so I’d clearly be against a theocracy.

    You, however, are a statist by your very handle. You would only oppose a theocracy on the basis of who was running things and why, but you’d be thrilled the State was smashing everyone’s rights and forcing them to behave as dictated by law.

    What’s your real complaint here?

    Hmmm….would you also consider what I do in the morning with my toilet a part of my “ritual”? Or how about when I make my lunch? Or going to work?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I guess they’re teaching argument by logical fallacy in the colleges these days. If you rant about God while doing your business or making lunch, then yes, those would also be atheist rituals for you.

    Since I was specific to your behavior while proselytizing, I think I’m still in the clear.

  • [3] July 30, 2014 at 4:38pm

    You had me up until the end, MrGeek.

    Believers (I’m not a Christian, but I am a believer) don’t state what you say. Perhaps some do, but they’d be morons.

    Believers state the following: “I know I can’t prove the existence of God, and yet I believe anyway.”

    That’s the definition of faith. I “feel” there are hints of his existence all around us – in coincidences, in mathematics, chemistry, and physics….in how the universe functions and the rules by which it operates.

    Do I consider these hints proof? No. But it’s like a secret that’s trying to let you know about it. Like an “easter egg” in a movie. The writers didn’t want to make it obvious, but it’s a very subtle wink to the audience.

    I think God works that way. His existence isn’t real because I say it is. I just believe it. This is what I believe is so threatening to people like LibSoc and Dawkins and other Progressives. They want the State to be the final arbiter, and faith has the power to sustain men even under the most horrific conditions of torture, coercion, and abuse – the tools of the State. There are many stories of men who went to their death unbroken through their belief in God.

    Did God save these men from their fate? Yes. When you understand the answer to my question, you’ll have started to walk the path.

    @LibertarianSocialist

    Feel free to present you empirical evidence that God doesn’t exist. I’ll be holding my breath in anticipation.

  • [7] July 30, 2014 at 4:30pm

    WINNER!

    It don’t get much crazier than him.

  • [1] July 30, 2014 at 4:29pm

    Ham makes dumb statements a lot. He’s a poor leader for his movement, because he’s so inarticulate. Totally true.

    However, that’s not all you were doing. You went on to expound upon the concept. I wanted it to be clear that its an unfair comparison, and that what you claimed for Christians is true for most human beings.

    I’d wager it’s impossible to pass a single law that wouldn’t offend some percentage of a constituency. To use that axiom to denigrate one particular group is wrong and a logical fallacy.

  • July 30, 2014 at 4:24pm

    @MrGeek

    Yes, what about them? Does your child go to a government school, or do you pay extra to send your children to private school?

    If your child attends government school, when was the last time they came home with a Bible?

    When was the last time your child told you about how they were forced to recite scripture?

    When was the last time the school baptized your child?

    How many churches has your child visited on school field trips?

    Yeah, man. Whew. So much religious indoctrination going on. What in the world are we going to do about this crisis?!?!

    Religion is a common belief system that is associated with ritual and superstition held by large groups of people…
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    And you believe in the superstition (a belief in something beyond the natural) that God doesn’t exist. I get it. You also participate in the ritual of coming to websites and prosthelytizing your superstitious beliefs.

    Again, we’re totally with you.

    @Uncle_Muscles

    The rules haven’t changed, but you probably missed the article and discussion yesterday about how TWF asked to have his old account deleted.

    You’d think that if TWF was holding two accounts you’d have seen him using it to dogpile people. That isn’t the case, so something else must be going on, no?

    I’m sorry your internet suxx0rz. I’m glad I don’t have your issues with posting.

    @Templarkommando

    Excellent argument! Perfectly logical.

    If you openly state that you believe God doesn’t exist (a matter of faith since it cannot be proven), then indeed you are a “believer”.

    For me, most atheists are in desperate need of maturity. They attend “fellowship groups” because they want the feel and benefits of religion without saying they’re in one. What a childish notion. This is like the Obama Administration saying that a war is a “kinetic action”. A rose by any other name is still a rose.

    Anti-Christian bigotry, pure and simple. Only – when they’re the bigots it’s totally cool.

    How odd that a socialist uses the phrase “collectivist thinking” as a pejorative. It almost makes you think he doesn’t understand his own positions very well.

    Indeed, please explain to the rest of us what the definition of a religion is, and then please try to explain why your faith that there is no God is not a religion. And…..go!

    @LibSoc

    Wrong as usual. I don’t know what Dawkins’ obsession with defending various degrees of pedophilia, but it’s clearly an interest he holds.
