Java Jive for a coffee connoisseur

I do not pretend to be able to prove that there is no God. I equally cannot prove that Satan is a fiction. The Christian God may exist; so may the gods of Olympus, or of ancient Egypt, or of Babylon. But no one of these hypotheses is more probable than any other: they lie outside the region of even probable knowledge, and therefore there is no reason to consider any of them. The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more often likely to be foolish than sensible.

If you reject science, you need to present evidence - and you don't have any - which is why your beliefs about the universe's origins are stupid, childish and importantly, false.

Don't pretend like you don't know already - otherwise why go to the Atheism forum to whine about people you can't argue against?

Whiney religious liars have opinions & denial while Atheists stick to the scientific facts.

Facts are offensive to Creationists which is why they gather here, making asses of themselves.

Science is pathetic. All it comes up with theories when it talks about the past, then it has to get all fancy just so it can look intelligent.

Fancy and intelligent science like the electricity piped into your abode providing you with creature comforts other than those available to tent dwellers?

Fancy and intelligent science like that which is used to create rainment for the covering of your carcass?

Fancy and intelligent science like that which now moves food into cans and into grocery stores your convenience?

Fancy and intelligent science like the Slate tablet and chisel you are using to access this site?

No? Not like that?

Tell me, do you raise all your own food, make your own fabric and clothing? Did you construct your own home?

Can you not see the science involved in every bit of your life? Are you wearing blinders while you post?

Science has jammed the gods into infinitesimally smaller and smaller spaces. The proof is that you are here on topix. How little is your god?

If you have nothing to say, just don't say it. It is not about science, but it is about the gods whom cannot exist when science does.

We are, of course, wildly off-topic, but isn't it good that we can have a little fun even if we disagree about the main topics. Winning? Who cares? Losing? No big deal. Life is more about enjoying the company of those around us than it is about convincing others to believe as we do. But, alas, there's no point in annoying folks more than we already have. Poems begone! En garde! ;)

Godwin's law evoked!

I knew it was only a matter of time :-/

Experts in ancient Greek culture say that people back then didnt see their thoughts as belonging to them. When ancient Greeks had a thought, it occurred to them as a god or goddess giving an order. Apollo was telling them to be brave. Athena was telling them to fall in love. Now people view a commercial for a Starbucks latte and rush out to buy, but now they call this free will. At least the ancient Greeks were being honest.

And with Godwin's Law evoked, Guess what world famous Christian said this...

Sshh!

Christians do not like to talk about this.

"MY FEELING AS A CHRISTIAN POINTS ME TO MY LORD AND SAVIOUR AS A FIGHTER. IT
POINTS ME TO THE MAN WHO ONCE IN LONELINESS, SURROUNDED ONLY BY A FEW
FOLLOWERS, RECOGNIZED THESE JEWS FOR WHAT THEY WERE AND SUMMONED MEN TO THE FIGHT AGAINST THEM AND WHO, GOD'S TRUTH! WAS GREATEST NOT AS SUFFERER BUT AS FIGHTER. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and of adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison."
