More delicious creationist tears over a science documentary. You know their continued boo-hooing about it only means the show’s popularity is having an impact.
I hate that passive-aggressive shit my family likes to do when my atheism is the topic of discussion. For example: my aunt and I were heading to the supermarket and my cousin was asking questions. My aunt just says how she believes I’ll believe again because you can never stop believing. Then a…
Just remember that’s your family attempting to shield their beliefs from your logic. It’s not about aggression toward you, there being defensive because encased within any religious belief, is the compulsion to defend it against any challengers without actually having to hear out the challenge.
You can always just roll your eyes and check in with atheism blogs.
Because in the Bible theres a passage “a fool hath said in his heart there is no god.” So, it’s “fools” day, get it?
I’ll accept their mockery when they acknowledge that a passage from a book insisting the book is true is circular logic and no more relevant than a whiney child yelling “IS SO IS SO IS SO!!” To win an argument.
Chick Tract? Odd name. But wow. There’s a whole site full of these shit stains. Incredible.
It’s named after the artist, or his pseudonym (I never bothered to find out if it’s a real name), Jack Chick.
Evangelicals leave these things on car windshields, in mailboxes, I’ve found them in aisles at the grocery store, in libraries, pretty much anywhere you might stumble across it and have your day fucked up by someone’s annoying religious baloney. Of course, as you can tell, they’re marketed at children.
The idea is that you’re a bad parents because you’re probably a heathen or a Jew or a catholic or a Mormon or just not fucking saintly enough, so when your kid finds this on the Little Debbie display case or in a toy store he can be afraid of hell an god without even having to have shitty parents putting it on him.
Yup, I also find it frightening when they tell their children that they will burn for eternity just for thinking that there is no god, when they self flagellate, take honour in having their sons become martyrs, and when they literally spend hours a day at Islamic shrines praying, thinking that somehow the laws of the universe are going to change because they keep repeating a bunch of nonsense written in a book 1400 years ago.
What makes the asker think it was easy, I wonder. It’s not that easy to manipulate people on this level. You have to get them when they’re either very young or in a very vulnerable emotional place. That’s why religious education is primarily for children and people looking to rehabilitate or people in times of crisis. That’s called a captive audience and Islam, Christianity, Scientology and others have perfected the art of marketing to them.
And that I was raised catholic. Yet people expect me to care about her and put up with her judgemental bullshit just because she’s old. I don’t think so.
Just another great example of religion destroying what should have been a meaningful family bond.
Okay, tell me how “I do not want to see hateful, ignorant, toxic posts about religions” translates to being closed off to criticism about religion.
Please tell me, for the love of science, tell me.
In that case, I guess we’re on the same page. Maybe I read a connotation into your original post that wasn’t there.
