Man struck by lightening: Oh man I just survived a lightening attack! Atheist: I don't believe you, how come I didn't see it happen? Is there an article? A link? A picture? I've never seen it happen, so it must not be true. Why didn't I get struck by lightening? You think you're special, the chosen one? You'd be dead, those lost limbs could be just a coincidence. Amirite?

What isn't true? An atheists wouldn't be skeptical of someone getting struck by lightning?

KickAsss avatar KickAss Yeah You Are -1Reply

People don't explain their whole existence by the man struck by lightning.

A real atheist: I can see that you are badly burned and have missing arms and legs so yes I believe you were struck by lightening.

Atheist don't need an article or whatever to make them believe something is true. I'm atheist and I never read an article or anything I just believe it because it makes the most sense to me. It might not to you, but your a different person.

You just can not be this dumb lol. Lightning would have struck tons of things before ever hitting a person, I'm pretty sure primitive humans knew what the "effects" of lightning were before there was an articulate language. So an atheist(btw this label means absolutely nothing about a person besides that they do not believe that a god or gods exist, other than that they all have nothing in common, most atheists are drawn to science for facts, logic, and reason but there are a variety of people and they are all different). So any fucking person would see this poor chap with his lightning wound and be like "holy shit, that bright stuff that hits trees and causes fire probably hit you huh?" KickAss, kick your own ass please.

Oh so you are saying lightning is the only thing that causes fire? Burn marks can only come from lightning attacks. Right! That makes so much more sense, than assuming the guy is crazy and probably burned himself.

Your whole argument is so idiotic and you think you've won this argument with your cunty little pun shit? Telling me to kick my own ass is the best that you could think of? That is one of the most pathetic insults anyone has ever used on me. I just cannot be that dumb? So you're saying if someone gets burned and they tell you a lightning struck them, you're just going to be like, "Herpa derpa yes, that must be it."?

I'd YYA this for a funny joke about skepticism...but you spelled lightning wrong.

I hate how so many people(I almost said everyone, lulz) generalize when it comes to religion. Just because there are Christian extremists doesn't mean that everyone who is Christian is hurting people. Just like how there are Muslim radicals, but also some good Muslim people.

The ignorance in this post...
An atheist does not have to see to believe something. I've never seen cells divide, but I still believe it happens. I've never seen Jesus, but I still believe he existed. All the evidence we have makes those things make sense. But I do not believe in the god of the Bible. When comparing how accurate Christianity is to how accurate other religions are, you will find that they are all pretty much equally valid. How can you choose between different religious theories when they're all equally credible? At least with science, you've always got one theory that is the most accepted. It might always be a different theory, but you have to test and retest to find out what the truth is. Religion never improves, but science is always expanding.

On your last sentence, religion isn't static. It evolves too, mainly because the world around it evolves too.

@MartellusBoss On your last sentence, religion isn't static. It evolves too, mainly because the world around it evolves too.

I can't think of a religion, as a whole, that has really changed too much, not as far as what they believe about their god and how we got here anyway. All I've seen is new denominations of the same religion form. Hell, if something new arises, whole religions form out of nowhere sometimes.

Well religons are based on a central set of beliefs, that's the whole essece of it.
But our understanding of them evolves over time as new culturesor philosophies develop.
Religio changes are never the paradigm shifting revolutions that science goes through, but they evolve nonetheless.

Yeah... but double standards can be relative, junior. Here the double standard hurts Christians negatively, but in real life it would hurt atheists negatively, that doesn't make it any less of a double standard. It's like if a girl has sex with many guys, it's bad, but if a guy does it, it's okay. In another culture it might be reversed, but it doesn't make it any less of a double standard.

This has nothing to do with my religion. I didn't even say that I was a Christian. Anyways, that wasn't the reasoning I used to say that everything is justifiable.

As delightful as your pun was, it didn't ruin this post at all, in fact it strengthened it. Everyone can see it, but unless they've SEEN it strike the ground, then anyone who uses common sense would assume it never touches the ground. So the first guy to get struck by lightning wouldn't find ANY atheist that would believe him. Because they're so logical and no one else in the world is.

Huh? How does it touching the ground have anything to do with the fact that everyone can still see it in the sky? Even if people don't see it hit the ground they'd still believe that it existed, they just wouldn't know it had the ability to hit the ground. That's like saying an atheist believed in god, they just didn't know he could come down to earth. Aaaand I'm pretty sure atheists don't believe in god at all.

How does your question make any sense at all? If lightning doesn't touch the ground, then how would a person get struck?

Exactly. He would believe that lightning existed, he just wouldn't know how it worked. Atheists do not believe in god at all; they do not think he is in the sky or anywhere else for that matter.

I understand the point of view you're looking it at, but I'm talking about thinking of it as the possibility that the lightning could strike a human being as being God instead of the lightning existing. Because no one can deny that lightning does exist, we all see it. But the first people who saw it probably didn't think that it would even come close to the ground.

KickAsss avatar KickAss Yeah You Are -1Reply

This post displays such a low understanding of an atheist mindset.

People can survive being struck by lightning. I'm confused on one thing though, why is the implication that Atheists are the only ones that would question that. Almost everyone I know, that is religious, would still question that event if there wasn't proof.

This just isn't even true at all.

Why did all the atheists no way this? If someone had been struck by lightning, and I didn't witness it, and the effects of lightning strike had never been documented I'd be skeptical. Only fools would believe something without any proof...

No, not really. I'm an atheist, but I'm not butthurt. This just isn't true outright. We don't need documentation for everything or measurements from instruments. Science is way closer to religion than one would think. Some things, we just have faith in that they're true, like the big bang theory. We have little to no evidence of it ever happening, but we still believe in that theory. It's the same with any religion.

Did you not read the comment? "We don't need documentation for everything or measurements from instruments."
The thing is, we believe in the big bang because there's cosmic microwave background radiation, which comes from the superheated hydrogen plasma coming from a rapid and extremely hot expansion of the universe. Also, galaxies are moving away from each other. This means they must have come from one place, they can't just have always been moving away from each other. There's a lot of evidence to support the theory, but we'll never be able to prove it because there's no way to go back to the beginning when everything was just a singularity.

So that technology was available when the first human being got struck by lightning? That's pretty awesome, what else do you want to exist back then that didn't? A rocket ship? Before you go assuming, you should try to understand the religion, no one is being threatened in order to help. The whole point is to help willingly. Meaning by your own choice. People who do missionary work aren't doing it because they're afraid of going to hell, they're doing it out of the goodness of their heart.

One of the happiest part of missionary work is when you "save" the people there. Secondly THE CHURCH CONDONED PEOPLE TO DEATH IF THEY SAID THE SUN DIDN'T REVOLVE AROUND US! You just gave me a source to prove you wrong right in that article you so believe proves you right...dumb.You need to go back to a real school sweetheart:)

Umm, I guess people read what they want... did you completely skip the part where there are no Churches that theorized any of it? The whole Aristotle, Ptolemy thing, they're not priests right there. That was their theory. Not the churches. The church supported the scientists and it turned out that they're wrong. So why should Churches keep believing scientists? They'll probably be wrong again... and so the Church loses faith in scientists. There goes your argument out the window.

You're so snarky about your stupidity, it's incredible. You just said one of the happiest moments is when they save the people, but then you're talking about how they force them. If you know so much about the Church, you should know you can't force someone to be saved and that they don't try to force them to convert... they teach them, so the people can make the choice on their own, thus being saved.
