Welcome to Stupid Christian comments. This
video series presents some of the amazingly stupid comments by Christian youtubers on
my channel’s debates and videos. Here are this week’s top 5 picks 1) Our first comment is from jacob ferguson
who had this to say… Belief is not a choice. You cannot will yourself to
believe anything, rather you believe in things only after you are convinced of their truthfulness.
Often, our barometer for evidence is low, especially as children, who take as true what
their parents, teachers and community say on any given topic. Once your baseline presuppositions
have been established as a child, you go through the rest of your life often reinforcing your
held beliefs, rather than critically examining what you have been taught.
If as you say a god does exist, show me the evidence for his existence. The religious
are great at making outlandish claims regarding things they cannot possibly be know is true.
If you have evidence that validates your belief, please share it. Failing to provide said evidence,
or providing subpar quality, do not be surprised that people who value skepticism and truth
will dismiss your claims. Claims are only as good as the evidence to back them up.
In regards to your account of a Chicago resident having been struck down by lightening, the
nearest I came is to a story of Chicago Pastor Kathy Nolte who was struck by lightening while
on walking for hunger relief. Here we not only have a Christian, but the pastor of her
own church being struck down. Lightening strikes, most often not on humans, but occasionally
people do get hit. There is no reason to believe that an all-mighty being exists and exacts
punishment at the end of a lightening bolt. I could imagine many people who would be worthy
of instant karma for their acts of murder, genocide, infanticide, and rape. People who
merely disbelieve in a god are not among them. If god does exist, and he loves me so, as
you claim, then why would he send me (or anyone for that matter) to a place of torment for
disbelief? Would you punish anyone you love with eternal damnation and suffering? I certainly
would not, and that makes me more moral and loving then any god widely worshipped. 2) Next up is a comment from Jeb…. Words have accepted meanings, and if those
words are supposed to be understood as something other then what they are, then aren’t you
guilty of making the text say what you want them to say rather than actually reading whats
actually written? As a person who does not have a vested interest in making the bible
conform with presuppositions, I don’t need to filter words and ignore uncomfortable bits
and abstract to the whole in order for the text to make sense. I see it for what it is:
an ancient book, written by fallible men, who lived in a time of great mysticism, superstition
and ignorance. Your claim that the new testament frees you
from the shackles of the old testament, is patently false.
Matthew Chapter 5 verses 18-19: For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and
earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.Whosoever
therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called
the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be
called great in the kingdom of heaven. As just observed, it is plain as day that
the author of this particular gospel states without ambiguity that no old testament law
be passed from the law. These are the supposed words of Jesus himself, whom you worship,
and who disagrees with your statement. The best advice I could give you is to critically
read and examine the bible you have so much trust in. If you do, you will see it for what
it is… not worthy of your time and devotion. 3) Darren Seabolt is next with this gem… It is illogical to hate something or someone
you don’t believe actually exists. Atheists don’t hate god, we merely point out how immoral
the stories of the gods actually are. Onto your next claim, the bible does not prove
that any god exists. All it proves is that nearly 2 thousand years ago a bunch of anonymous
writers recorded events that may or may not have happened, and legends were born. The
truthfulness of the claims are highly dubious, and the extraordinary events are highly improbable.
All you have is a collection of grand claims made by people we cannot verify to be credible.
For those who value true statements and facts, the bible is definitely a book not worthy
of being evidence of anything more than ancient mythology.
Citing creationist facebook propaganda as evidence of the truthfulness of the bible
is blatant confirmation bias. No matter the claim, no matter how ridiculous, you can find
a Facebook page or website that purportedly lays out evidence in its defence. There are
sites that defend a flat earth, and ones that claim Obama is the anti-christ, or that aliens
use crop fields as an etch a sketch. If you have unsupported claims and wish to find validation
on the internet, you will find what you are looking for.
Now lets shotgun through the remaining few claims…
1) Of the two groups of people, theists on one side and atheists on the other, which
group is subject to brainwashing tactics? Which creates a disease and provides the cure?
Which indoctrinates from early child and reinforces at home? Which one creates a infinite reward
and eternal punishment system that plays at our emotional strings?
2) There are millions of atheists worldwide that do not believe in any god. If you haven’t
met one, you need to start broadening your social group
3) Richard Dawkins does not believe in Jesus Christ as having actually been god in the
flesh. 4) True, you can’t disprove something that
actually exists, but you also can’t prove that god, the supernatural or that the biblical
claims are true. The moment to believe in something is the moment that evidence worthy
of the claim has been demonstrated. 4) Next we have Pusillanimous Vetoed with
this bit of wisdom… Whats humorous is that atheists tend to have
read much more of the bible then the average bible thumping believer. The first step towards
atheism often starts with reading through the book that most christians have never cracked
open. It is not arrogance to use our 21st century evolved morality and knowledge to
examine the magic stories of the ancient past. We are not telling a god what to do, since
we don’t believe there is anyone out there to direct. It is in fact the theist that is
arrogant when they claim to know things they could not possibly know, or to claim that
their particular religious tradition is most align with the creator of the universe, or
that they alone are made in god’s image and that the entire universe was built to be their
own personal sandbox. It is the Christian who reads the parts of the bible that they
find agreeable and in alignment with their worldview. It is not arrogant to demand for
evidence, question authority, and reserve belief until such time that it is warranted. 5) And lastly, we have Vegan Homeslice who
said this… Free will, is not a gift given to us by anyone.
Free will is the ability to make choices free apart from interference and guidance, and
in a world with nearly infinite choices, it is hard to imagine how it could be any other
way. Since the world is not static, we, out of necessity have to make decisions and act
in an attempt to create stability. We are at one end of a long line of choices that
our distant descendants made over the billions of years interacting in ever changing environments
wrought with developing challenges. Now onto this atheist religion nonsense. Im
always confused when theists make claims that atheism is a religion. Is this meant to be
an insult? If so, wouldn’t that undermine and insult all religions including there own?
If it is meant to be an equalizer of sorts, how do they justify that their religion is
superior to another? Religious claims are untestable, unfalsifiable and nearly infinite
in variety, with many being contradictory. It is not possible for all religions to be
right, but it is possible for them all to be wrong. How does one honestly evaluate the
claims made and come to a conclusion if any are bears of some ultimate truth?
Atheism is not a religion as it lacks all characteristics commonly associated with a
religion. It has no scriptures, no decree of faith, no system of morality or code, no
hierarchy or institutional framework. Atheism is simply a label applied to those who lack
a belief in a god. If you wish to find secular morality, look towards humanism, veganism,
or other non-religious moral systems. Lastly, onto the question of why we spend
so much time battling religious beliefs, it is because religious people tend to not keep
their religions to themselves and demand that everyone conform to their way of thinking.
Laws are passed, rights are withheld, and fiction is being taught as fact. New generations
of people who will one day lead our schools, governments and place of business believe
in such nonsense as a 6000 year old earth; humans and dinosaurs living together, communication
with supernatural beings and eternal damnation. I care for the human race, and for my liberty
and those who are oppressed. I care for truth, justice and freedom. That is why I can’t sit
ideally by and let others dictate what can or cannot be done, who one can love or not
love, or what scientific fact can be taught or replaced with fairy tales. POLL:
