Too lazy to look for long but I do not find a topic specifically anti-theist at its base. We have plenty of religious topics where we heathens bite and scratch at idiots, and science topics where religionists go nuts trying to piss down the edifice of physics. But there is no topic that is specifically labeled as anti-theist.
So let's have one.
The intent is to provide a playground more amenable to directly insulting and rubbing societies nose in the stupidity of their theisms.
All within the behavioral norms of EvC, of course.
Let me start (duh).
This is a video about Justice Alito's views on free speech. I'm surprised that a sitting Supreme has such wrong ideas of what free speech is and means even from the perspective of popular misconceptions. As a conservative staunch catholic he has a slanted view of the subject.
But it's the scratching and biting of a religionist's ass that delights me here. This is a comment on a rights issue but it's also definitely anti-theist.
If you find that offensive then he has achieved his goal.
And it's not "freedom of religion" that is opposed but religion itself. People can believe any daft thing they so desire but the flip side of that freedom is my freedom to roast you mercilessly for believing in what is demonstrably weakminded bullshit.
Brian's been doing the Mr. Deity gig for decades. If you're offended by this side talk of his the series will not please you.
I'll not even bother trying to justify anything scriptural since none of you revere or respect the book and instead use doctrines of demons and modern political correctness (witchcraft) to spew your anti theist propaganda.
You may laugh and scoff, but keep in mind that we may yet glean some humor in this topic rather than a soapbox for the antichrist.
First, Phat, thank you for promoting this topic. I would have understood if you let this sit in limbo until someone else took a look. I know it is heartfelt difficult for you.
But, yes, Phat, this is, from your perspective, the den of inequity, the realm of the antichrist, home of satan himself with me, a minor EvC demon, acting as emcee.
This thread is home for the antichrist. To every person and idea labeled antichrist by the bloody fork-tongued (fork-minded) priests of your temples, this is a refuge, a respite from the evil that is religion.
There are a few really good concepts christians think they invented that play out big in their book. Of course we demons adopted them well before your god spoke his first words to that jim-jones wannabe, abraham. Don't want to disrespect such noble sentiments so we have adopted these from the larger body of basic human dignity.
We will, of course, find humor in this topic because religion, despite being the creator, the advent, of all evil on this planet, is just so hilariously stupid. It's easy, and fun, to make merry of stupid.
First you came at me like demons, mocking Jesus and His Mother.
I hope you note the title of this thread. Like anti-fascist, anti-theist is neither kind nor accommodating.
Which does not anger me, but which infuriates my demons.
No it doesn't, Phat. It just pisses YOU off. No demons involved.
That's good. Be pissed. That's human.
Because now they are no longer exclusive.
They never were.
No longer holding the power of the chosen people.
No such thing.
No longer able to cast your devils out of you …
No loss. Never could anyway.
… but forced to bow and scrape and serve you even if you take all my money and are not Christians.
Where do you see any such requirements other than your irrational nighmares?
But I wont argue too much except to ask which God we are talking about.
Ehh … Phat? The title of this thread, right?
It better not be that pesky altruistic god of Spinoza.
Oh, Phat. You may think you’ve read Spinoza but you did not comprehend his view of god.
I am not a pantheist …
I thought you were Christian? You guys got more gods and devils and angels and spooks and spirits than a Hindu. Ok, maybe not. Hindu’s got a lot of them.
Then again, maybe my demons are telling me to fight you on this.
That is YOU, Phat, not some demons. If you want to fight me then ditch the demons and engage self.
You can join us. Come to the dark side, Phat.
Not just religion but politics. You can still feel real good like a Christian helping people as a leftist liberal. You can be more christian, as Tangle defines it, as a flaming liberal than you are now.
Ok, maybe a moderate liberal. Without the flames.
Drop the demons, Phat, and support universal healthcare, universal education and guaranteed income. And support the tax changes on the wealthy to pay for them.
You say that, you demon, but Legion got rended into 2000 pigs that ran off into the lake and drown. That's not job security.
Besides, what good is being a demon when any jesus freak with a vile of water can come along and banish you into some pig that can't swim?
No, if I'm going to be a supernatural being I want to be one of the fun-loving sexy kind like Dionysus. Demon seems too busy and responsible for results as well as being subject to instantaneous reassignment.
No, a nice easy avocation of wine, women and song sounds so much better.
I intended to post another heathen devil-worshiper video. I have a few saved up for the next few weeks. But then this came into my part of the world.
Not specifically religion-centered but a more philosophical question.
Is It Wrong to Think Your Political Opponents are Stupid and Evil?
If you are not familiar with her, she is not only a radical feminist, anti-theist, flaming liberal (note the hair), political (verbal) bomb-thrower, but she also has that nagging ability you find in some really smart people that they are mostly right. Her skepticism, even of her own beliefs, is science based.
Why is this here? This same treatment, of course, holds for religious opponents.
No. It is not wrong to think any religious opponent as being stupid and evil. Religion is stupid and evil. So must be its adherents.
