Go to: Atheist Ireland Publishes 25 Blasphemous Quotes

How ironic! A website which wants us to campaign against censorship....itself censors me - even though my message was in support. Monty Python could not make this stuff up!

Go to: Atheist Ireland Publishes 25 Blasphemous Quotes

David A Robertson's Avatar Jump to comment 82 by David A Robertson

I entirely agree that this blasphemy law is ridiculous and a limitation on free speech. It will also be used by the PC 'liberal' (?) facists to stop any form of dissent or perceived insult of any religion. This 'law' should be opposed.

However it is a little childish and immature (as well as playing into the hands of those who support the law) to encourage people to 'blaspheme' as much as possible. It then ends up with the kind of inane and ignorant comments that make atheists look like schoolboys.

ANd be careful about the 'silencing people to protect ideas' argument. Does that mean that racist comments should be allowed in order to avoid silencing people to protect ideas?

Having said that - this law strikes me as a very dangerous law, for Christians as well as athiests.

Happy New Year to you all...

It will come as no surprise that I totally agree with Mohler. Armstrong's view is intellectual, rational and religious suicide. At least Dawkins is consistent and coherent.

Allan W - sorry that is a lie. You are very welcome to post on the St Peters website. And there is no 'alternative thread'. We believe in being open minded - which is more than can be said for RD net - where those who don't share the faith are excluded.

You also say that the points I make have been addressed elsewhere. Where? Where is the answer to the Edge quotation? Where is the answer to the question about evidence for Christians killing millions at the request of their God? And you keep talking about falsehoods. Its strange its like your other atheist mantras - if you repeat them enough you think they are true. I have issued this challenge many many times and you still cannot meet it. Give me one example of where I have lied. There may be many times I am wrong but I am not aware of telling a single lie on this website. But you are an empiricist. Yu don't believe in saying things without evidence - so it should not be too difficult to prove that I have been lying. There's a challenge for you.

I actually think that whenever you guys step out of your own wee world - into the real world - you get hammered in debate and discussion. Its why you need this forum to be a closed one.

St Stephen - this IS what he said "When asked by the Edge Foundation.'what do you beleive is true even though you cannot prove it?' Dawkins replied: 'I beleive tht all life, all intelligence, all creativity and all design anywhere in the universe, is the direct or indirect product of natural selection. It follows that design comes late in the universe, after a period of Darwinian evolution. Design cannot precede evolution, and therefore cannot underlie the universe'. At bottom,then, Dawkins's rejection of an ultimate Intelligence is a matter of belief without proof. And like many whose beliefs are based on blind faith, he cannot tolerate dissent or defection."

Anyway I am not prepared to waste time debating in a sideline - so when you have the balls and the wit to actually debate like adults and remove the auto-troll I will be happy to answer any questions you have. The only further responses I will make here are if you manage to come up with a lie I have said...
