Checkmate, Atheists

checkmate

I don’t know what’s worse: Ray Comfort and his dribble or the 147 people who clicked “Like”. But I guess this is what happens when you are lobotomized by fear and ignorance.

Is the idea of there not being a higher power so unbearable that people will remain willfully, purposefully and grossly ignorant? That just does not resonate with me. I do not know how people go through life like that.

    Actually it sounds more like Comfort is saying that to him it does not matter whether a god exists or not, he’s going to pray and believe no matter the evidence. It’s not the idea of no god that bothers him. It’s the idea that proof of no god would mean he’s been an idiot his whole life and that his life really is meaningless.

      Right. Because he sees his life only having meaning in context of a god. So he totally is basically taking the head in the sand approach because he doesn’t seem to be able to handle it that there is none – because in his head, if there is none, his life has no meaning.

        if without a god he was still important to people and had self worth outside of religion, he too could accept that there is no god
