Wonder why….

deanpepin:

  • Global atheism is shrinking by about 300 atheists per day.

While this number is nonsense, I have to point out that if it were true, Pastor Derp would be arguing ad populum and that’s, as we know, the fallacy that had his type on the side of history that would kill a man for suggesting the planet is round and that the sun exists outside of it.

  • 80,000 more people call themselves Christians each day.

Same as above.

  • In China, which is an atheistic communist state, Christianity is exploding.

The Chinese are oppressed, terrified people. It’s no wonder some of them are desperately turning to an organization that claims to give it them all the answers they need, you can see the same enthusiasm for religion among American slave populations. Also, part of that ‘explosion’ may be that the Chinese people have been so afraid of their government, which is not really communist, it’s fascist, that when polled they historically denied any religious conviction. That China is fading and people are starting to admit they’re Christians. Doesn’t make it an explosion, necessarily, but as I said before numbers do nothing to the truth value of the claim that there’s a god.

  • Christianity prevailed against state sponsored militant atheism in the Soviet Union. Atheistic evolution is a state sponsored enterprise via public schools. Evolutionary belief is the air supply of atheism.

Step one: Crazy religious based rant. Step Two: ??? Step Three: Profit!

  • Some of the biggest allies of atheistic evolutionism in the U.S. are: public schools, academia and the liberal media.

You wonder why educated people support the teaching of real science over mystical fairy tales about an ancient magical caveman?

  • Atheism has no proof and evidence supporting it.

Atheism is the denial of claims about gods, not the assertion there are no gods. Your statement illogically, but cunningly, shifts the burden of proof. The onus, Pastor Derp, is on the Derp making the claim. You’re making the claim, you say there’s a god, all I say is show me. Saying atheism has no proof is just as silly as saying people who don’t believe in vampires have no proof. I don’t need proof that there are no vampires or unicorns or gods, you need proof there is.

  • The results of a study was published indicating that most United States high school biology teachers are reluctant to endorse the theory of evolution in class.

And yet your cowardly ass won’t post that study. Probably because it was conducted by the creation institute of derpville.

    Shorter University in Rome, Ga., is requiring its employees to certify that they are not gay as a condition of employment.
All 200 employees of the Baptist university, located about 65 miles northwest of Atlanta, received a “personal lifestyle statement” last Wednesday, which they must sign or risk being fired. Employees must pledge to be “active members of a local church” and to abstain from, among other things, drug use, premarital sex and homosexual behavior.
"I reject as acceptable all sexual activity not in agreement with the  Bible, including, but not limited to, premarital sex, adultery and  homosexuality," the statement reads.

A Christian school being bigoted because of their religion? Who woulda thunk it!?

    Joseph Smith was a known con man at the time, he was chased out of town for basically selling treasure maps to places where no treasures existed. Oh, also, he came up with this horrifying scam called “Mormonism”

    Mormonism and what it does to families.


    Here’s “The God Who Wasn’t There,” a pretty good documentary. It’s only an hour long and it both follows one man’s journey out of religion and explains how the Bible was culled together from a variety of myths floating around. It’s interesting, it’s not Zeitgeist nonsense, I know I’m making it sound that way, but it’s much better than that. Check it out.

    It just occured to me

    When Fred Phelps dies, and at 81 and with what must be high blood pressure he will soon, the protest at his funeral is going to be be huge and hilarious. I can’t wait.

    thebellsareturnedtotears:

    I am so fucking tired of having to read stories like this…Prayer isn’t going to do shit. Stop wasting your time and actually do something about it. 

    You can believe in a magical sky fairy, I really don’t care. But when your silly beliefs start putting people…childrennew. born. children. in danger? When they result in someone’s preventable death? Fuck you.

    Feel free to throw up a little…I know I did.
