Re: Proof Leprechauns are Real

I think they have to look Irish and wear a green jacket too? I'm dusty on Irish mythology.

Re: Video Games

Witcher 3 is up there with FFVII on the all time greats list. Recently I've been mostly playing Stellaris... which is one of those games that just falls short of being a classic I've been playing through that one recently to replace my obsession with Crusader Kings 2. My latest playthrough I got an...

Re: Proof Leprechauns are Real

Evolution on this planet produced humans. I could definitely see it producing a race similar to us but shorter (and still obsessed with gold) on another lol.

Re: Why does god always whisper?

Clever diversionary one-liner. But - with the partial exception of Mormonism - EVERY religion being discussed in this thread (and pretty much all the other religion-topic threads) are derived from holy books and traditions that range from 1300 to 2000 to 3400 years ago. Bronze age and Iron age stuf...

Re: Why does god always whisper?

Most religions (at least Jews/Christians/Muslims/Mormons) believe in a holy book where people can get their communications from God. No priestly class needed to read those books. Somebody doesn't know their history. For most of history, the Christian priestly class absolutey did hide the bible from...

Most religions (at least Jews/Christians/Muslims/Mormons) believe in a holy book where people can get their communications from God. No priestly class needed to read those books. There are MANY apocryphal books, both old and new testament. The priestly class decides which books you read, even which...

Re: What makes your life worth living?

For the record I know it's a bad argument to appeal to majority. The point of it was to show how it's not weird to have an opinion that differs from a majority view.

I used Wikipedia. I admit it's not the most accurate source but it didn't change the point that much.

Re: What makes your life worth living?

Why do so many Christians get it wrong in my opinion? I'm assuming you're asking about hell specifically? I personally think a lot of it is vestigial theological baggage from the middle ages when hell propaganda was spread by the Catholic Church to encourage more subservience. I've never been to the...

Re: What makes your life worth living?

For the record, if there was an everlasting hellfire torture chamber waiting for us in the afterlife, I actually do agree there is no way to justify the suffering of this world with an all-loving God. So you agree that Christianity is either a meaningless religion or a fathomless cult? Cool, we're ...

It got the ball rolling so it works :P I guess I just expected more from you after reading your input in that other thread about Disney. Literally all you've done is proclaim God is impossible and meaningless and refuse to expand on anything beyond that or even back up those claims a sliver. You've ...

Re: Proof God is real

It seems a big part of the whole Christian thing. I know you're not a Christian but as an atheist we regularly have to put up with Christians warning us we'll go to hell. To be fair to the Christians telling you that, if they actually believe you're going to be burning in hell for eternity, it make...

Re: Proof God is real

Why are you all always so desperate to link God with hell lol. Are you afraid to face the idea of God on its own so you bring in hell to make it easier to argue against? It seems a big part of the whole Christian thing. I know you're not a Christian but as an atheist we regularly have to put up wit...

Re: Proof God is real

A more vivid way of showing the utter pointlessness of this argument is: If we accept the premise that "everything that can possibly happen has happened" then I posit the following must have happened: There was a god, who was foolish and created artificial intelligence which soon surpassed god's ow...
