Go to: Why Richard Dawkins is still an atheist

Rational Ape's Avatar Jump to comment 74 by Rational Ape

Oh, just one more thing. On the Dawkins 1-7 scale, with regard to the god of the bible, who is supposed to be omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent, I am an absolute 7. There are logical contradictions inherent in such a definition and it is as impossible as a four sided triangle. If the inventors of Yahweh were a little less ambitious there'd be room for a shred of doubt (or rather, non-doubt).

Now with someone like Thor, I'd be 6.99+.

A much simpler explanation than some of the ones offered: Some people are lying sacks of excrement.

Remember Christopher Hitchens' alleged death bed conversion.

Go to: Jessica "Evil Little Thing" Ahlquist on CNN

Of course moderates state that the nasty folks aren't real Christians. The pattern showed up repeatedly in the comments on Jessica Ahlquist's own web page.

I wish the moderate "true" Christians had the guts and gumption to tell the "false" nasty Christians that to their face. It's not like Jessica, nor I or anyone who comments on her blog can tell a real Xian from a phony one; to us it's ALL phony, so why bother telling us that you have the real imitation rational worldview?

Crap, next you'll be seeing outrageous claims that Richard Dawkins is an ape or something.

Go to: What is deism? Is it possible?

Comment 9 by Quine :

I like the form that posits a Creator being who was destroyed in the process of making the Big Bang. Much ado about nothing.

Hmm... so we'd be debris from God's own suicide bombing? Not terribly inspirational.

I think I will stick with "we are made of star stuff" even if it ignores the hydrogen the stars didn't make.
