Not much going on around here today. We're just prepping for a busy Sunday, what with the textbook rally at the Capital in the morning, then the show at its usual time, followed by Threadgill's. And here I was thinking part of the fun of being godless is you got to sleep in on Sunday! Ah well. Here is some kooky fun from the mailbag today, to put smiles on all your heathen faces. Also, our "Christian Psychiatrist" dude wrote me back, but I'll get on that later. Toodles!
Dear Atheist Experience Show,
I think it's a shame that most of the people who call-in to your show are either ignorant of the scripture or they are merely religious people that do not have a clue about what they are saying because they have never heard the voice of God anyways. It's obvious that God "IS" real and it is also obvious that He has never sent anyone, an actual child of God, to speak on your show and probably never will. Here is why, all human beings in their natural born state are wicked and evil, such as yourselves. Most religious people, churchies, just cannot figure this out. You have experienced atheism, but you have never experienced God because you are the children of Satan. This is why Yesu, <-- Jesus, said that a human must be born again to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. This heresy that God loves everyone is a lie! God loves those who persues righteousness! God loves His children. Satan's children, the wicked, or the world will be burned up and then casted into the Lake of Fire. Another fact is, is that unless God draws you to The Christ then you "cannot" come to Him, nomatter what you do. I do not care what the world or atheist do, thinks, or says because it does not concern me and should not concern any other "real" Christian anyways. It's not a Christians duty to go around fixing the world because that's just impossible. Only God can fix the world and is going to do so in due time with some serious heat. In the end the losers become the winners and the winners just get burnt. You are not the Devil like many people say on your show, but you are one of his many children.
I think I actually will start calling Christians "churchies"! I like that!
Oh lordy... As soon as I read the first sentence, I knew it was only a matter of time before "real Christian" made an appearance.ReplyDelete
I was not disappoint.
Well I am disapoint. With Christian emails, I am always disapoint.ReplyDelete
I'm thinking Poe on this one, but I suppose that's just a testament to the law.ReplyDelete
One can not make that up. It is so egregious and way out of this world that I can not help but think that being an atheist is the best thing that ever happened to me in my entire life.ReplyDelete
Hmm, so this person seems to believe in some form of salvation through grace which strongly implies that people have no choice in the matter. If one is going to take such a Calvinist approach, then it isn't clear to me what they think is being accomplished by sending this email.ReplyDelete
This drongo has a few kangaroos loose in the top paddock, mate.ReplyDelete
Has this guy ever seen a baby?ReplyDelete
They may be noisy at times, but I wouldn't classify them as evil - at all. Babies/Kids tend to be the most innocent creatures around.
The "God is Obvious" statement is ludicrous. I think it's obvious that there's no god influencing things in this reality. Now we're both just making claims.
So how do we know who's right? Back to square one - the scientific method.
it is also obvious that He has never sent anyone, an actual child of God, to speak on your show and probably never will.ReplyDelete
You know the number dude.
Although I don't think we'll be hearing from him. It's a lot easier to spot a Poe live.
Definitely not a Poe. I've known people like this. They say the usual buzzwords: I'm not religious, I have a relationship with Jesus, just going to church doesn't mean anything, the number of saved people are only a handful, etc.ReplyDelete
A lot of these people have "home church", if you know what I mean. I knew one who told me steeples were pagan phallic symbols and she wouldn't go to a church that had one.

If you had a baby and took his favorite toy away from him, tell me he wouldn't stab your face in an instant if you granted him a knife!
Preceding argument paraphrased from masterful orator Todd Friel.
A concise argument in favor of apathy. There's hardly anything more evil than constructing an elaborate rationalization of letting everything rot and doing nothing to improve the state of anything.ReplyDelete
The person writing this presumably owns a computer and is sitting in a decently warmed room, will have little trouble getting food and drink on the table, and probably has at least a small stack of books about his favorite subject.
All these are fruits of the endeavor to improve the state of humanity, the world, the future.
I conclude that the author of theis e-mail is an evil hypocrite and likes it, but is too much of a coward to take the next logical step and rid the world of his presence.
"No True Scotsman" needs to be changed to "No True Christian." Whenever this fallacy is erected these days, 99% of the time it's a Christian complaining that other Christians are not the true Christians, as they are.ReplyDelete
"Hmm, so this person seems to believe in some form of salvation through grace which strongly implies that people have no choice in the matter. If one is going to take such a Calvinist approach, then it isn't clear to me what they think is being accomplished by sending this email."ReplyDelete
The Calvinist idea seems to be that even though everything is predestined, we humans have no idea and no way of knowing who'll be saved and who won't, so sending emails could be a way to function as one of God's vessels. It would mean that God may have selected one or more people who read this email and has rigged their brains to be receptive (read: gullible) to the message of salvation, so this email is actually all part of God's Great Plan(tm).
Basically a roundabout way of saying God's a kid in the sandbox with extremely meticulous plans for his GI Joes.

OH NOSE! Calvinist maybe?
That should be "we iz kittens of teh Basement Cat!" nez pas?ReplyDelete
Yes, of course it should have. Oh noes!ReplyDelete
Calvinists want to deny freewill...but leave just enough so they can blame people for their problems.ReplyDelete
"...it is also obvious that He has never sent anyone, an actual child of God, to speak on your show and probably never will."ReplyDelete
I agree with that.
I also love how they call Jesus "Yesu". See, they're so in with Jesus that they know his REAL name.
Now, imagine if someone who believes this manages to get political power. With a belief that you can't fix the world - only God can do that, can you imagine the policies they would support and the damage they would do to the world?ReplyDelete
He's gonna be waiting a long time for God to fix the world. Hope he'sReplyDelete
not holding his breath.
How would that even turn out? Would God be like "Flame on"?
The Fantastic Trinity.
It's gonna be a scorcher!
regarding the textbook rally, i thought i might inform you of this:ReplyDelete
doesn't do anything for texas, but it's good for the rest of us.
If you had a baby and took his favorite toy away from him, tell me he wouldn't stab your face in an instant if you granted him a knife!ReplyDelete
The babies I've known would be just as likely to think "new best toy" and proceed to stab themselves in the face. I think you may be ascribing a maliciousness that doesn't exist. Certainly they are developing a sense of others existing outside of themselves. "You're a solipsist"?
Thank you for showing us that "real Christians" do not believe in free will.ReplyDelete
You were born a child of god and us atheists are born of the devil and both of us are destined for our pre-determined, eternal fates, no matter what.
So what is the point of preaching then?
