You stole from us Pagans. Also atheists tend to have better ideas than Christians.

No great ideas from atheists?
Not a one?
Shit, someone had better tell Alan Turing. If the computer's such a bad idea, then get off it, would you? Make a Christian one, if your ideas are so much better.

Yes, because the vast majority of scientists are religious. Oh wait.

hmm, christmas, easter both stolen from other religions. Halloween also.
Jesus also stolen. Noah stolen. Satan stolen.
I love my wife because I do , not because God commands it and I have no choice. The moral code I follow is not that of the christian god because my society does not permit the killing of homosexuals, non-virgin brides or fornicators without penalty. Christians are expected to kill those people.

Christians have ALWAYS stolen from atheists to have a functional life.
Air travel? If man were meant to fly god would have made him with wings, until atheists invented airliners.
Computers and the internet? Alan Turing, Bill Gates and the linux guy.
Medical care? Germs cause disease, not evil spirits that can be prayed away.
Agriculture? Darwins theory of evolution led to increased productivity of food crops.
There are NO great ideas from christianists, only crying and whining that nobody obeys their giant man with a long white beard who lives on clouds.

Please. All those concepts were around long before Christianity and if Christianity ever disappears they'll be around for long after it.

Thesis and antithesis. Any proposition creates in itself a negation of itself. Theism is the proposition of the existence of deities, hence atheism is its negation.
In a way, atheism is the antithesis of all religious beliefs. Just as the ideas of theism revolves around the existence of a deity (or deities), atheism address these issues around the absence of a supreme being.
Christianity believes in moral absolutism. (God's word)
Atheist beliefs are split between moral rationalism and moral relativism. (Themselves antitheses of each other)
Christianity adopts the creationism.
Atheism follow the scientific method.
Christianity places love of its deity before all else.
Atheism believe that man's obligation is to his fellow man. (Mostly humanism, but no limited to such)
Christianity believes in absolute and unchanging law. (God's word is law)
For atheism, laws are made by humans for humans, they can and should be changed in accordance and to support the advancement of human society.
Christianity believes in strict hierarchial order. (Divine right to rule being one of the core tenants of Christian nations for a good part of the 10th to 19th century)
Atheists beliefs in order is very varied. (As an atheist myself, I believe in meritocracy)
Christianity believes in an afterlife. And Christian instutions have long abused this belief. (Indulgences for those in the purgatory, excommunication, etc.)
Most atheists do not believe in an afterlife. I believe that this give us cause to live the life that we have to its fullest. (I don't know if other atheists share this belief)
Christianity believes that all reality is created in 6 days and can be summed up in a single book.
Atheism believes that the above stated belief is asinine.

You really should learn the difference between beating someone down and just standing there beating off.

Please stand on a street corner in Iran and shout that over and over again. Someone will be with you shortly.

Well we only stole science because YOU weren't using it anymore...

dionysusDoug Wilson demonstrated this in the beat down of Christopher Hitchens...James White also demonstrated this in the beat down given to Silverman (President of American Atheist).
While I've seen Youtube vids of supposed "beatdowns" before (overwhelmingly the atheist either actually has the upper hand of it's a draw, though I've seen ones where the theist argued much better) those prove nothing but the debating skills of the debaters. There are people out there that can debate that black is white and win the debate. Besides, my atheism isn't based on Christopher Hitchens or Silverman (I actually dislike that douchebag), it's based on my own search for truth and the absurdity of religion.
There are NO great ideas from Atheists.
Atheists must and have to steal from the Christian worldview, they must have the Christian worldview at the foundation of any of their ideas in order for them to work..
That's called civilization. Everyone steals good ideas (and sometimes bad ideas) from others. You think Christians never stole any ideas? Read the epic of Gilgamesh.
What, you means the part where you can keep slaves and beat them or the golden rule? Trick question; both existed before Christianity.
Every fucking person ever.
Um what? We stole your life? Or did we exist as inanimate objects until we saw Christians and said "Ooh, deliberate motion. We'd like to have that."? Because neither makes any sense.
Oh, I get it. Atheists are like Dr. Who villains. We come from the void and are stealing all of time and space.

Just so you know: morality, science, love, justice and order all predate the Abrahamic faiths, you have the universe to thank for life and reality is something unknown to you.

In addition to Christians 'adopting' ideas, stories and holidays from other religions, there were atheists long before Darwin. But hey, don't let little things like facts stop you.
7/24/2012 12:02:40 PM
You have no idea what reality actually is. You live in a fantasy word with talking snakes, angels, demons, and other nonsense.
7/24/2012 12:08:45 PM
How the eff can you argue with a delusion?...

Translation: "When demagogues feed me shit, I believe it because I'm too dumb to have any real historical or scientific context."

Most of your concepts were stolen from Hinduism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, and other earlier religions.
7/24/2012 1:38:11 PM
"Beat down ... "

We've had 1600 years of the Christian worldview. Thus far it has produced a great deal more harm than good.
7/24/2012 2:25:55 PM
News just in: Morality, Science, Love, Justice, Order, Life and even Reality all existed prior to the invention of Christianity
7/24/2012 2:56:07 PM
So no concept of Morality, Science, Love, Justice, Order, Life or Reality existed before Christianity emerged on the scene? No philosophers EVER considered those topics before Christ? Really?
