First. Future commentators will handle this better than I can, so I just have one thing to say.
God, being immortal, cannot possibly die. You lose.

Most “atheists” are men – a woman usually has more sense because she has a womb and understands intuitively that the only life brings life.
NO. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!

Having a womb is supposed to give me an "intuitive understanding that only life gives life"? Huh. All mine gives me is occasional cramps.
4/13/2012 2:58:31 PM
I count ad hominem, false analogy, baseless assertions, more ad hominem, argument from consequences, some bizarre sexism, and a whole field of strawmen. Looks like this is headed for the Top 100.

Well I'd be blushing too if I had just written such garbage.

While I concede that my personal "why I'm an atheist" story hasn't made it yet to PZ Myers' blog, I promise you every word of it is true.
Beyond that, it's your holy book that says that life came from rocks and dust before god breathed life into it. While we don't know exactly how life began, I assure you it was a much more interesting process than that.
And finally, please don't cite the book of Job to justify any pro-god arguments unless you want to be rebutted with "so god is a gullible, easily-manipulated passive-aggressive, asshole."

The cure for atheism - give all men womb transplants.

So, let's see here:
25% pure bullshit "facts"
60% tired old lies
15% poor grammar
Yup, it's a fundy!

What part of "evidence is needed to justify a belief" do
Americans Christians not understand?
As for your statistic about atheists being mostly men, in certain countries in Northern Europe atheists are in the majority, suggesting that unbelief knows no gender.

"Criminals have many reasons for the things they do and many explanations for why it is really somebody else’s fault."
You mean, like Christians?

This diatribe is one load of retarded bullshit if there ever was one. Fuck.

I did enjoy "being God is his job." Though how exactly they believe anything follows from that...argh.
The argument as a whole obviously pissed me off. The sincerity --> blindness --> lying progression stuck out as interesting sneakiness.

I'm an atheist, not because of something bad that happened to me, but because I couldn't figure out how the notion of God made any sense at all. Boo hoo.
I'm also a woman, although I confess that I am trans and don't have a womb, so I don't know whether I should count. Not that you'd approve of that either.
You obviously have no idea what atheism is. It isn't anger, it isn't emptiness, it isn't lack of love or anything like that. It is a philosophical position based on the ideas that beliefs must be founded on evidence and/or reason and that all arguments once believed to prove the existence of God have been shown faulty. If you want to believe in God because of faith, well good for you. I don't understand the concept of faith and I don't think I ever will. I get along just fine without it.
But I don't go around comparing people who take different philosophical positions than me to delusional criminals. I suppose that's what makes me an absurd atheist, right? The fact that I want to speak reasonably and without pathetic personal attacks?
4/13/2012 5:43:55 PM
So let me get this straight...
If I were to cut my cock and balls off, and gouge out a vag and uterus, I will miraculously become religious?

I looked at the Blushing Tomato blog. The thread that quigley responded to was a young woman who is looking for answers to some questions that are difficult for her. She comes across as very sincere and she is respectful of other points of view.
Quig comes at her with shit like this twice. What a fucking asshole.

So-called “conversion stories” is like listening to a criminal justify himself. Criminals have many reasons for the things they do and many explanations for why it is really somebody else’s fault. With all sincerity they tell their sad stories and absolutely none of it is true – they are just blind and self-deluded. If you follow them you are idiotic because you are denying evidence. A moron christian thinks dust gave birth to a man whose rib bone became a woman. The absurdity of it not only denies science, it denies life itself and equates dead inanimate objects with living things. Christian dummies imagine man has no need of evidence from science. You have a mind and a brain and you need evidence. You have fallen into a tough time of doubt, but facts are still facts.

This reminds of the "Atheists Eat Babies" story I read a few years ago, which somehow claimed that a person turning away from Christianity (because atheists totally don't reject all other religions as well) used the same justifications as someone who plans to eat babies. It was hilarious and horrifying, much like this one.
Good one. Wish I thought of it.
4/13/2012 8:27:20 PM
Yeah, she was really too nice in her response to him.
4/13/2012 8:56:38 PM
No, you turn us into dead inanimate objects when you dream of eternity. If you're always going to exist in the precise same form as you are now(more or less), you might as well be a stone.

So-called “deconversion stories” is like listening to a criminal justify himself. Criminals have many reasons for the things they do and many explanations for why it is really somebody else’s fault.

I feel the same way about apologists trying to interpret the atrocities in the Bible.

Oh wait, it's Mack! I remember this guy! He used to be just another YouTube Cretinist, them he came out against race mixing and got shamed away.
4/13/2012 9:47:13 PM
I remember Mack Quigley on youtube as well...
He was at least as dumb as Nephilimfree without the advantage of being batshit insane to make him interesting.

I've yet to meet anybody, atheist or otherwise, who "things(sic) a space gave birth to a rock that gave birth to people."
That some people are born with an empty space between their ears is however much more obvious. It happens all too often, and we call the result a "fundie."
