50 reasons (NOT) to believe in god

#9 How much of the atheist's faith relies on anger with God as opposed to genuine disbelief in God?

*sigh*

Didn't I just sorta deal with this yesterday? What part of "atheists are atheists because we don't have faith" don't you understand?

I doubted the existence of god long before I could be called "angry". And any anger I do have is not directed at a non-existent entity... it's directed at his idiotic followers for continuing to insist that obviously false things are still somehow true merely because they wish it to be.

But worse than that...

Does a question constitute a proof? Why does an atheist's anger have anything at all to do with the truth or false value to the claim that "There is a god." If you met an atheist who was happy-go-lucky, would that prove there was no god?

I read through the fifty reasons that dingbat wrote for believing in god the other day and this one still boggles my mind. If I'm angry enough at them, will unicorns exist, too?

I know. But they are exactly the kind of bullshit things you hear on the street everyday, so it seemed like a good exercise. And a couple months ago, someone complained that I didn't post often enough... This way I can post everyday for while. I'm looking forward to #16 now.

I'm very glad your responding to the twaddle. Makes my job easier when some one gives me one of this dumb reasons and I stare at them with my jaw hanging and don't know what to say because I can't believe what they said to justify their stance.

I've been enjoying your "not"-reasons immensely.

I'm glad you're enjoying it. I know I would have loved a good snarky comeback from time to time... or better... one that was both snarky and reasonably well thought out, I hope. :)
