Great find, I'll be getting this! For all you atheists out there who love nothing more than a bit of Bible deconstruction, you should go see Robin Ince live on his stand up tour. Genius!

'Holy'?

With a small library of books on atheism, anti-theism, I wonder whether this book will provide me with anything new? It seems to be just a collection of quotes. Here is a link to the amazon.com site where you can 'look inside' and see what you are getting. But for those of you a little newer to enlightment, it might be a good buy :phttp://www.amazon.com/Atheists-Bible-Illustrious-Collection-Irreverent/dp/0061349151

Although I might pass on this one, heat and rep added. Thanks OP :thumbsup:

To play Devil's Advocate...

Let me just clear this up...

You're discussing how marvellous it is to have books full of quotes by fictionalists and 'philosophers' who have no track record in either the historical or scientific disproving of the existence of God, who have built a whole philosophy, and apparently a comedy routine, about their inability to know anything about what they cannot see giving them reason to believe it isn't there, and you think a website by someone who appears to have spent a long time studying evidence for the existence of God who makes presentations based almost solely on the logical fallibility of positive affirmations of atheism is 'a joke.'

I think you, and your pal Mr Dawkins have both failed to realise that the only jokes in the entire debate are yourselves...

I'm tempted to give a cold vote on this clearly overpriced and outdated book collection of 'public domain' quotables simply because so many people think owning and reading this collection is somehow philosophically fashionable or intellectually brilliant.

There are about a hundred websites on which you can get the Bible and other religious books for free, and are bound to learn more from actually reading them, than from reading a collection of quotes from a bunch of lazy thinkers who didn't believe anything except that they didn't believe anything trying to influence others to think lazily and not believe anything either.

It might be politically correct to worship the ground on which Dawkins walks, it might be politically correct to celebrate the two hundredth birthday of the scientist least knowledgeable and least qualified to comment on matters of genetics, and it might be fashionable to mock and ridicule Christians, but be real... while you're citing material like this, and making comments like you are in a NON-PARTISAN forum, you look just as big a bunch of mindless, unthinking idiots looking for quotables from someone famous to justify your own utterly illogical lack of affirmative knowledge as they are. At least the average Jew or Christian can formulate historically grounded positive reasons why they believe some of the things they believe. Atheists seem to rely on simply denying everything that doesn't fit in their world view or asserting that because they don't understand something and can't 'rationalise it', therefore it must be a mass delusion or a conspiracy.

Give it a break.

You're as religious as any Bible-thumper, and you're not intelligent enough to see it. At least they know what they're doing and are unashamed of it.

I suspect if you met the author of that website in person, and debated him, as some have, you'd end up looking like silly children with their pants pulled down around their ankles, like your hero Dawkins, who refuses to debate anyone who disagrees with him because, arrogantly, he has decided to assert that his intelligence is greater than theirs, and therefore debate is beneath him.

Talk about building sand castles...

Now see if you can be objective about an overpriced book promoting mindless, unscientific support for a religious philosophy based on denial and disbelief... would you really pay £6.99 just so you can have some third rate hasbeen and mostly dead 'somebodys' from history give you reasons to believe you're right? Don't forget... the Christians can do the same thing, except usually they make their information available for free in the hope that people will actually stop to think about it.

£6.99 to hear a round of applause for unevidenced, closed-minded denial-based philosophical apologetics?

Do you know how much beer that buys? And it does your brain cells more good...

Surely atheism is just another religion? We all worship something - either the created or the Creator. I put it to you that atheists worship their own intellect by saying they have figured out what more feable minded Christians can not. If Atheism is not a religion, why do Atheists so passionately want to promote it and win the argument? Surely it is not because they want to 'free' the Christian to a better life, as if they are honest most would concede they can't actually stand Christians.

Any thoughts?

I'm sorry I got a bit bored of your long post. I was only making a light-hearted comment. I am open to all sorts of ideas. I don't worship Dawkins or anyone else. I just like what he's doing for the 'thinking for yourselves' cause because that is what I am part of.

Many atheists don't even really consider themselves to be so, basically because they never give it any thought, others are firm in their belief and their "label" but tend to keep to themselves. A perhaps growing number are what you'd call militant atheists, people who pronounce their beliefs, work against the established religions, try to make change, and yes maybe celebrate Darwin's birthday. (I don't see anything wrong with just celebrating the winter solstice, - just about everyone now has their own version of an end of december holiday now) That said Darwin was a visionary, (not a god or a superman) but he made some amazing discoveries and laid the foundation for so much of modern scientific thought.

anyway .. I think the more militant movement rose out of a response to similar aggression from the other side, that we feel like we'll loose ground if we just stay quiet while the religious remain out-spoken. I don't think atheists consider that "feeble minded" christians can't "figure it out" if we did then trying to convert you would be a pointless pursuit.

Atheism a religion? no. it may resemble one, but that's simply because, organisation is an effective way of getting things done, and community is a nice thing to have. The reason why we so passionately promote our "beliefs" is that most people, want to try and help others and make the world a better place (Believe it or not, morality is actually the product of evolution not the fear of hell fire) some people are misguided in their efforts but most usually believe that what they are doing is good. In our instance, we wonder how much better the world would be if the Jews and the Muslims weren't constantly trying to kill each other, if the catholic church didn't tell AIDS stricken Africa that they'll go to hell for using a condom, and if kids didn't kill themselves because they hate themselves for being gay.


I have plenty of atheist "bullets" especially in response to some of the things on that website, but I'd rather keep such stuff to myself rather than turn this thread into a war. tho i expect that's where it's going to go.

BLAH BLAH BLAH ad nauseum


Darwin, Dawkins, Dennet et al are at least as thought-through and reasonable as anything offered by those following a supernatural world view. Your argument seems based on the belief that it is impossible for your creation myth to be wrong so if anyone disagrees with you they must either be foolish or just stubborn.

The person responsible for that 'athiest [sic]' website so completely miscommunicates what an atheist might be or believe that I get the feeling he's doing it on purpose. No-one, I truly hope, could genuinely believe that their 'opponents' ' arguments could be so weak. The ultimate point is that religion is at least as absurd a description of Everything as atheism is, so please; you give it a rest and turn your other cheek.

How about Jesus Hugo Christ? It has a semi sophisticated wine bar ring to it?

Addtionally, if we say Jesus H Christ I wonder what Jesus would've said when he hit his thumb with a hammer whilst knocking up a nice sideboard as a chippie?

"As a so called son of a god how could I be so dumb as to strike my thumb with a hammer!
Maybe I am just a crazy deluded young man. Oh well it should be easy to convince the fools around here that I am the Messiah! Maybe they'll start writing a book about my exploits in over fifty years time. By that time, with chinese whispers, all my exploits will seem like miracles".:whistling:
