LOL This is gold.
This video’s a bit long, but it’s worth watching.
You see this? This kind of shit is why atheists “are always so angry.” We need to rid the world of scum like Ray Comfort. Religion causes irrational, primitive and immoral thinking. This is fucked up on so many levels. These ideologies CANNOT be believed by a thinking person. Christians are always calling secular people immoral, while the Christians are the ones who cherish obedience to authority over morality. “God says this so we must obey, regardless of it being good or bad. It’s good anyway because our god commanded it.” Bullshit.
Edit: Recently found out that this Ray Comfort post is actually a fake (according to facebook commentators), but regardless, this still highlights a problem religion does in fact portray. Maybe Ray Comfort didn’t really say this, but many Christians do, and that’s still frightening.
Quote from an agnostic-theist acquaintance of mine:
"…I’m not talking about the science that we developed, but the existence of science itself. There is no way to use science to prove the existence of science — it’s circular reasoning!”
Science was developed by humans. There is no science without us. Science is simply the means of understanding the observable universe. It’s a methodology made for the purpose of obtaining knowledge by way of study, observation, experimentation, verification. So when you say you’re talking about the “science we didn’t develop,” what you’re saying is nonsense (or what you mean to say is “natural processes”). No, science is not using circular reasoning, because science is justified by the fact that it works. It doesn’t justify itself, it is justified by its results. As said by the critically acclaimed scientist/author Richard Dawkins: “If you base medicine on science, you cure people. If you base the design of planes on science, they fly. If you base the design of rockets on science, you reach the moon. It works… bitches.” Lol. If we hadn’t developed science, we’d still be illiterate, primitive tribesmen sitting in our tents, thinking illness was a “curse” and that the Earth was flat like clay.
The concept of a personal god is an anthropomorphic personification of human desires and nothing more.
This is awesome. lol
