YOU MIGHT BE A FUNDY ATHEIST IF…

6. You think questions like, “Can God create a rock so big that He cannot lift it?” and, “Can God will Himself out of existence?” are perfect examples of how to disprove God’s omnipotence and ultimately how to disprove God. When someone proves to you the false logic behind the questions (i.e. pitting God’s omnipotence against itself), you desperately try to defend the questions, but then give up and go to a different Christian site to ask them.

7. Related to the above, you spend a great deal of your spare time writing to Christian websites asking them these very questions.

8. You spend hours arguing that a-theism actually means “without a belief in God ” and not just “belief that there is no god” as if this is a meaningful distinction in real life.

9. You consistently deny the existence of God because you personally have never seen him but you reject out of hand personal testimony from theists who claim to have experienced God as a reality in their lives.

10. You can make the existence of pink unicorns and…
null …flying spaghetti monsters centerpieces of a philosophical critique.

Note: “Flying Spaghetti Monster” is the term that the Richard Dawkin’s crowd uses to describe God. See the “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster” by clicking here. (Be forewarned; it’s an atheist site, but kinda funny).

  1. I fail to see the humor in the “church” (I use the term loosely) of the flying spaghetti monster.

  2. And they fail to see the horror of the “monster” (I use the term loosely) of the wrathful fury they will experience forever should they not repent.

  3. Hmmm….not even worth my time. I mean, 10 is serious commentary, even if wrapped in parody. Parody a tool of dissent. If your understanding of it is that shallow, even Jesus wouldn’t forgive such a shameless waste of time and effort.

    Errrgggh, aggggh, ooooooorrgggg!!! What I meant to say is, I’m overwhelmed by your inexorable logic!!!Must…find…less…formidable…opponent….

    But seriously. There are plenty of reasonable theists around. If you want to engage in intelligent conversation with an atheist, try to be one of those reasonable theists. This garbage attracts the lesser of our ranks (yes, there are stupid atheists), so it’s no wonder you think so poorly of us.

    But I don’t expect a zebra to change his stripes. What I expect is to be dragged over the coals for avoiding a useless argument with someone clearly more interested in creating strawmen and knocking them down.
