Why do Atheists willingly choose to burn in hell for all eternity?
Why do Christians choose to burn in churches before they enter Helheim?
I think theists and atheists are alike. Some are simply born into the lifestyle of faith or not or have transitioned to their beliefs based on how they experience life. Had a shit time recently? That can go either way where someone can cling to god asking for help and guidance in their time of trial or completely go away from God thinking "why would it let this happen to me?" Having a great time? People could view that as divine intervention of some sort and be thankful while those can be pushed away thinking how they don't need God as they did this all on their own. I'm in the middle since you can't exactly scientifically prove he exists or not. The idea of God gives so many people hope and happiness so proving it wrong won't help anything as it has been a glue holding civilization together. The question is not why are you not Christian. The question is why do you believe what you do? What caused you to have such faith or not? Would you change your position?
So my theory is if this is the same guy starting these threads every day, it's because he was brought up religious and is now old enough to start questioning his family values. He is curious of the world outside of religion, and this is his two-fold way of venting frustration and/or finding out why people dont need religion any more.
Surely no confident christian would keep banging his head against the door like this actually believing he can turn people.
I guess there's also always the troll/bait option, and if that's the case this has been one of the lamest and least successful trolls in human history.
I've responded to these threads a few times with similar comments now, and I think I'll let this poor bastard rest in piece after this one.
Actually, it's an atheist. He just gets off on trolling other atheists, and they are easily trolled. He admitted it in one of these threads, once. He's just jerking people's chains.
That's why the arguments seem so on-the-nose to trigger atheists. He knows his audience, because he IS one of them.
spiderman is acting like a catholic priest and trapping kids though.
Jesus fucking christ this thread has been posted 10+ times daily for almost a year now, and i'm sure it has been posted plenty of times when i'm not on. Props to whoever has the patience to keep posting this. Godspeed anon
I am ready OP, come and explore my religion..
>Actually, it's an atheist. He just gets off on trolling other atheists,
that's one goddamn persistent atheist. i see these threads all the goddamn time. fucker's got no life if it's just him.
I watched the neverending story once when I was a child but never again so I dont remember a lot of it, just the main kid, the giant dog and the swamp of sadness
We know the Earth is a spheroid and we know what's inside it at its various depths.
Where exactly in there is your "Hell" supposed to be? If it's "down" as so many of you retards say, and "down" from anywhere on the planet is gesturing towards the planet mantle and core, where the fuck is it? It should be there somewhere, right?
>Believing in sky wizards
Not even once.
I have seen almost this exact same thread 17 time in the last 3 days
same. If it wasn't for newfags falling for this shit-tier b8, it probably wouldn't be around
You'd rather have a blink's worth of a hedonistic life of furious masturbation over an eternity of pleasure that you can't possibly grasp?
HINT: Your laziness has made you believe that worshipping God means an eternity of worshipping his scrotum.
Please don't rape me.
> uh oh
This was for the prayer thread but this'll do.
So I live in southern US and it's pretty religious out here.
I worked for a Christian cheerleading team and after every practice they would group pray. They always invited me to pray with them and I would even though I didn't believe.
Always praying for fam, friends, and to have a safe practice.
One day, one of my girls fell on her head doing a whipped backflip too close to the floor. Still cringe thinking about the sight of her head folding under her body.
Group prayer that she would be ok and have a speedy recovery. Remember head coach telling me "I know God will heal her"
It's fascinating how devoted successful OP is in baiting wave after wave of newfags compelled and poised to debate the existence of God while somewhat aware of the idea that they will never change anyone's minds but choose to do so anyway. OP is not just a master troll, but a scholar of trolling as well. I commend you OP on your endeavors and everlasting success in baiting these faggots. Truly remarkable.

How can you knowing each day brings you closer to death?
YOU DIDN'T ANSWER MY QUESTION, HERETIC.
I know I'm gonna get insulted for saying this, but God is real, but I am in the position that no ideology or religion out there has any 100% understanding of God or how the world works. I'm Muslim myself, but I've come to see that no way of life is perfect and there is no such thing as a religion being "better" than another. Religion does help connect with God/The Divine in some way and provide comfort.
Nothing can be done to save you or me from the miseries of the inheritably evil world. The world is an irrational blind force, without guidance, for there is no God to direct it.
Death will bring you no escape from the miseries of this world and the tormenting forces of this world is eternal and will persist in the afterlife.
THEN WHY WOULD YOU RESPOND TO MY POST IN THE FIRST PLACE, YOU APOSTATE?
IT'S BECAUSE YOU CAN'T DEFINE ATHEISM AND YOU WON'T ADMIT IT
Because it's a useless word. Like calling someone an Apostate.
What do you think atheism means?
I understand but I don't care.
If you keep thinking about it you're just gonna make yourself a sad little bitch. Get over it duuuuude
You dun goof'd right there.
THEN WHY ARE THERE SO MANY IRRELIGIOUS PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES THIS? OBVIOUSLY IT HAS MEANING AND VALUE.
I KNOW WHAT ATHEISM MEANS BUT YOU DON'T AND YOU WON'T ADMIT IT
If you did anon, you would care. You would care.
>can be considered
because something "can be considered" makes it so? stay pleb
They call themselves Atheist because there are more religious people than not.
Religious people dubbed those that don't believe them to be 'atheist' and have spread the label.
That's the only context in which the word means anything.
If the situation were reversed and there were more non-religious people, we would not call ourselves atheist.
A religious person may call us 'atheist' but it would just be a nonsense made up word.
You may consider me atheist
I do not consider myself atheist
WRONG. YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT ATHEISM MEANS AND YOU DON'T WANT TO BE CALLED A LABEL EVEN THOUGH THERE'S A LABEL FOR JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING. EVEN YOU ANON.
justified is a pretty flexible and loosely used word
that's a mal formed question
Atheists won't burn in hell.
They have to believe in heaven for there to be a hell.
Life is Hell anyway.
THAT'S JUST YOUR OPINION AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT ATHEISM MEANS I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU
THERE'S A DICTIONARY FOR EVERY WORD I SUGGEST LOOKING IT UP
NO AND YOU CAN'T MAKE ME MOTHER FUCKER
As an athiest i beilieve that if God existed the world wouldn't suck so much ass. What I mean by that is that there are no dragons or magic or anything our own imaginations have created. If God was real, why has he not created these things we think of? Is it possible God knows not our thoughts and ideas? And if he does why does he not let them come into existence? Christians Can't answer this
That's a pretty strict use.
Pretty much everything we 'know' is based on a high level of confidence that is justified.
The only thing you could 'know' under your definition is mathematical facts.
Do you believe in God btw?
If you want to know what someone believes, try this question
What do you believe?
'Why can't atheists define atheism?' is a loaded question because the word really only has meaning to you. Because you believe in God.
I don't believe in God, what more do you need?
>Pretty much everything we 'know' is based on a high level of confidence that is justified.
that's your perception, not everyone shares it. again, get on my level
>The only thing you could 'know' under your definition is mathematical facts.
Then how are we able to talk? You're making assessments that aren't fully thought out.
>Do you believe in God btw?
That's not of your business. this discussion is getting pointless
4chan is for 13-25 year olds.
Reddit is for 22-35 year olds.
Very rarely are there any top level graduates online in forums anymore.
They jump to conclusions, straw man and contradict well known consensus-based concepts, and in some areas, they even reject axioms.
They don't seem to understand the importance of coherency or source.
In this case, anon straw mans and then refuses to point to a source, just dictating anons memory justifies anons emotional retort and denial.
Debate etiquette calls for references, which I posted, and logical arguments without presumptions, which I posted, but I doubt anyone will take LOGIC for what it's worth when people can try to rely on self-serving biases and interpretations.
Look, if you're still going to troll or act retarded, that's fine.
- Ad hominem; Call people names
- Don't provide counter-arguments
- Reject realism and the scientific consensus
Just don't loop.
Looping is cancer.
Personal incredulity and the argument from ignorance are fallacies. You're ignorant.
You imply you have no knowledge of the other kinds, therefore they don't exist.
That is wrong irrational.
I take it you don't have high reading comprehension?
I can post a test to check your knowledge of scientific principles and you can share the link of your results, timestamped of course.
You have offered zero counter-point, zero counter evidence.
Therefore I see no reason to continue with you if only I have something to intellectually contribute.
Your denialism is fallacious.
I'LL USE WHATEVER FUCKING QUESTION I DAMN WELL PLEASE. AND IF A WORD ONLY HAD MEANING TO ME, THEN WHY IS IT USED IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND WHY DO PEOPLE LABEL THEMSELVES THAT?
Is that really a question or a declared thought that ends with a period?
>I can post a test to check your knowledge of scientific principles and you can share the link of your results, timestamped of course.
don't care to as it's not relevant.
>You have offered zero counter-point, zero counter evidence.
Yeah, like everything you say is backed up with evidence and research.
>Therefore I see no reason to continue with you if only I have something to intellectually contribute.
Is that your way of saying you're a pseudo-intellectual incapable of debate?
>Your denialism is fallacious.
Another baseless accusation without explanation or any kind of premise. Good job and reaffirming my thoughts of you being a pseudo-intellectual, pleb.
