The list of foolish -often very stupid- claims made by atheists is long indeed. A great many of the claims made by the so-called “New Atheists” from Dawkins to Harris to Dennet to… you-name-em, and the claims based on those claims fall into that category.
This is rather astounding. Why? Because a large part of of the population in the West and in Europe have bought into this. What kind of average IQ rating can we give people, in spite of how blatantly obvious the endless self-contradictions are, that cannot see these contradictions?
I my own view, that average IQ goes down by several points every time one of these “new atheist” priests opens his mouth to speak or writes another book. Truly, these people, blind leaders of the blind, could reduce the average IQ of the entire world population by several points every year they continue to promote the bunk they perpetually try to pass off as “fact”, “reason”, “logic”, “true” etc,,
These people just don’t get it or else they really are wicked – deliberately speaking what they know is nonsense.
The often ludicrous propositions they think are so weighty against the existence of a God, a supreme, supernatural being are just bad logic, blind faith in nothing and among the worst of the dumb ideas devised since the beginning of the 20th century.
To illustrate this I’ll quote a recent comment I felt sadly obliged to confront on a blog. Of course anyone that reads my articles here knows how harsh I can be to the adamant atheists. Let me explain this just a little here. I’ve been debating atheists and atheism for many long years -over 30- on and off the web for a about 20 years now.
About 99% of every single debate I’ve either had myself, or watched some other poor theists attempting to reason with atheists in, has been little more than an insult fest. Most of them almost devoid of any sign of honest reasoning in atheism. As soon as the atheist is faced with the glaring problems of logic and reason in his untenable position, the discussion is over; the insult session begins. And in this it doesn’t matter how much proof, evidence, logic, fact or reason one brings against atheism’s multitude of errors, the theist receives a slew of often vulgar, nasty, four-lettered superlatives and accusations of stupidity etc. from the atheist crowd.
Ok so are you ready? I hope so.
If you’re not an atheist you will no doubt see the foolishness of such comments immediately. If you’re unfortunate enough to be an atheist you will almost certainly not see a thing.
Here’s the original comment :
“That’s simply because it’s based on observation and rational thought. It’s consistent not because it’s manufactured to be so, but because it actually is consistenct with reality.
Religion relies on dogma to be consistent and does a pretty poor job of it (as numerous schisms have shown).”
And here are my comments -with all my usual angst against atheism and its all too often willfully blind and willfully ignorant victims. I’ve modified the format and presentation order, and also added some comments in square brackets to make it a bit clearer :
He stated, “That’s simply because it’s based on observation …”
Tell us, oh rational one, what observation are you referring to exactly?
Which observation is it that proves there is no God or even no supernatural?
None whatsoever & you know it well too; therefore you’re doubly guilty -of both willful stupidity and fraud.
He said, “…and rational thought”
What rational thought are you pretending here?
Where is the rational thought that proves atheism?
Atheism denies the very reality of rationality itself by relegating all thought to mere materialism.
“If naturalism [atheism] were true then all thoughts whatever would be wholly the result of irrational causes…it cuts its own throat.” [C.S Lewis]
Atheism according to atheists [American Atheists web site],
“Atheism is the lack of belief in a deity, which implies that nothing exists but natural phenomena (matter), that thought is a property or function of matter, … there are no forces, phenomena, or entities which exist outside of or apart from physical nature, or which transcend nature, or are “super” natural, nor can there be”
My, such a slew of glaring self contradictions in such a small paragraph is amazing!
They claim that “nothing exists but natural phenomena (matter), that thought is a property or function of matter”
Can they prove this? Using their own feeble methodologies [methodological naturalism]?
No, of course not, and they themselves say so!!
If, by default [and using your own method], you cannot posit [or detect] any supernatural existence then how on earth could you ever possibly “know” that there is no such thing!?
A child could see through such blatant stupidity, but not the well potty-trained atheist!
A wiser man (ex-atheist) wrote,
“The theory that thought is merely a movement in the brain is, in my opinion, nonsense; for if so, that theory itself would be merely a movement, an event among atoms, which may have speed and direction but of which it would be meaningless to use the words ‘true’ or ‘false'”
This undoes the self contradicting atheist statement on thought, in one single simple phrase.
“If he is honest,… the materialist will have to admit that his own ideas are merely the “epiphenomenon which accompanies chemical or electrical events in a cortex which is itself the by-product of a blind evolutionary process.” … In other words, there is no reason according to materialism for materialism itself to be regarded as true”
“You are nothing but a pack of neurons“, said atheist Francis Crick.
So tell us, why should anyone give a crap about what your neurons are doing? Under atheism you’re just a slab of animated meat. Rationality cannot be defined as meat. The sooner you finally use your brain to figure out that, if atheism is true, then you really are nothing but animated meat, the sooner you might get free from the abject intellectual poverty of atheism.
The atheist said, “It’s consistent not because it’s manufactured to be so, but because it actually is consistenct with reality.”
Atheism isn’t even consistent with itself! Wake up and smell the oxymorons.
Atheism IS denial of reality.
He then said, “Religion relies on dogma to be consistent and does a pretty poor job of it (as numerous schisms have shown). ”
You were raised on humanism and you swallowed its ubiquitous lies and propaganda. You’re bound in the snares of its multitudinous idiocies, all while thinking yourself to be “free” and a “thinker”.
Packs of neurons can neither be free nor thinkers.
You, like all atheists, are exactly like the man born blind that denies the existence of light and color because he himself cannot see it, and then you claim this is “rational”!
Think on that and maybe you’ll start really thinking for the 1st time in your life.
Ok, so there you have my initial admittedly angry response.
The greatest contradiction in atheism is this pretension that you can have rationality in an atheist universe. You cannot have rationality in a universe that is itself irrational. You cannot have rationality in a universe that is purely and solely material -matter. Matter is not rational, it doesn’t think, has no consciousness and no will. You may as well assign an IQ to a rock, intelligence to a piece of meat, as to believe rationality exist by accidents in matter.
Rationality itself is purely conceptual. It relies completely on the absolute laws of logic to even exist. Which do not exist in atheism.
I’m always amazed, astounded and confounded when I hear atheists smugly bragging of reason, logic, rationality etc. within a world view, a philosophy that itself, by default, by its own tenets, denies even the possibility that these things can even exist as anything real. Rationality, under atheism, is nothing but a material pack of neurons. It’s nothing but animated meat, chemical reactions, electrochemical activity in meat. It can never be more because according to atheism, that’s all that exists.
Yet the average atheist never can’t seem to figure this simple fact out. Crick did, so did many others, but they always end up denying the necessary logical implications and consequences of their ideas.
Therefore, all while claiming to be perfectly logical, the atheist must deny major facets of logic, in order to keep his position “consistent” with itself. Yet, the very act of denying these vital aspects of reason and logic, the atheist automatically, whether hes sees it or not, has denied his own foundations for atheism. It’s the ultimate intellectual self-destruct.
