Everybody wants to be right, but I think you are missing the point. I very seldom see anyone refuting a God, only those who walked the planet as humans. I don't trust that information either. Beliefs are not always reality nor truth and so much has happened to bastardize information, its like a game of gossip being played for several thousand of years. It may be that some of these people who refute Jesus are right, you just might have your own beliefs blocking the truth. But then maybe they are wrong and the same goes for them.

Atheism is a religion, just like all the other religions, and it's followers are compelled to prostelitize to the nonbelievers.

The only difference being, is that their religion requires them to believe in nothing.

And obviously, messianic atheists have a very strong belief in their nothing, and feel that they must convert all the nonbelievers to their point of view.

Show a mathematician or an engineer this proof and insist that you can't find the flaw and that math must be wrong:

1. a = b + 1
2. (a-b)a = (a-b)(b+1)
3. a2 - ab = ab + a - b2 - b
4. a2 - ab -a = ab + a -a - b2 - b
5. a(a - b - 1) = b(a - b - 1)
6. a = b
7. b + 1 = b
8. Therefore, 1 = 0

If you have no mathematicians or engineer friends, watch a blank TV and laugh your ass off at a nonexistent comedy show or do something else that denies physical reality. Some people will smile and leave you alone, others will just back away slowly, and yet others will vehemently try to explain to you that you are wrong.

Nonetheless atheists have started wars and committed genocide, although for them it was about power with none of the self-delusion that it was all somehow for God. Stalin and Pol Pot are the only true atheist nutcase leaders in the history of humanity but it happened.

Re: Why do atheists spend so much time, attention, and energy refuting something that they don't believe even exists?!
It's about ideology...

Religion is an ideology, it has laws, and it has A central figure that rallies people around the ideology, in the case of religion, the central figure is God...

In other cases where the ideology is other then what is known as "religion" the ideology exhibits the same characteristics but the central figure is other then God.

In the anarchist for example the central figure is themselves.

In communism it is "the people".

In democracy, it is "we the people".

In fascism it is "THE STATE".

ETC...

All people will fight to both propigate, and to defend their particular ideology.

Look at what America is doing right now in Iraq...

What is that if not "spreading their ideology by the sword", they feel that the ideology is threatened by people with a different ideology, and they are springing to defend it.

Some take this a step further and think that they must "spread the ideology" without feeling that they are defending it.

People need to stop looking at religion as anything other then an ideology, once you do that, you realize that having an ideology is something that is part of the human condition.

The point is that it is obviously wrong, they will see it, and try to explain it to you. They'll also probably get pissed that you're too stupid to see it yourself (for clarity, you're just acting).

As for denying reality that's the thing. Perhaps talking to invisible people that you can't actually prove exist would have been a better analogy. If you are certain of something you cannot prove (or think you've proved when you haven't) then you are going to get some funny reactions.

Re: Why do atheists spend so much time, attention, and energy refuting something that they don't believe even exists?!
Thing about atheists is...they think they are being totally logical...but it's not logical at all. Just try and prove a negative - it's virtually impossible!

Proving the opposite of disbelief cannot be done! For the former stems from a foundation of faith..the latter stems from a foundation of faith as well.. faith that there is no God!

The only truly logical alternative is agnosticism.

Re: Why do atheists spend so much time, attention, and energy refuting something that they don't believe even exists?!
If you are certain of something you cannot prove (or think you've proved when you haven't) then you are going to get some funny reactions.
 Quoting: Thanatos


The above could describe
the Born Again Christian
indwelled by the Holy Spirit.

John 14:26

Jesus speaking:

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

What is born of flesh is flesh
what is born of spirit is spirit.

Spirit and flesh at odds at GLP?

Show a mathematician or an engineer this proof and insist that you can't find the flaw and that math must be wrong:

1. a = b + 1
2. (a-b)a = (a-b)(b+1)
3. a2 - ab = ab + a - b2 - b
4. a2 - ab -a = ab + a -a - b2 - b
5. a(a - b - 1) = b(a - b - 1)
6. a = b
7. b + 1 = b
8. Therefore, 1 = 0

If you have no mathematicians or engineer friends, watch a blank TV and laugh your ass off at a nonexistent comedy show or do something else that denies physical reality. Some people will smile and leave you alone, others will just back away slowly, and yet others will vehemently try to explain to you that you are wrong.


Its been about 30 years but I do recall you cannot divide by 0.

Is that the flaw?

HHHMmmmmmmm......how 'bout this:

Three men go to this hotel. There, the manager tells them that there is only one room left. The three people share that room for thirty dollars so each person pays ten dollars. Later the manager found out thatthe room is only 25 dollars. He calls the bell boy and tells them to give
the 5 dollars back. The bell boy decides that since you cannot divide 5dollars by 3 people, he took 2 for himself and returned to each person 1dollar. So each person paid 9 dollars and the bell boy has a two dollars.
That is 9 * 3 = 27 plus the bell boy's 2 dollars is 29 dollars. Where is the extra dollar?

Some of us atheists just ignore you, even when you are preaching at us. Of course, you may not even know we are atheists. I guess we are in the closet because we are afraid of you. Or we see little good will come from communicating.

(3 * 9) - 2 = 25
