Big Words and Other Cute Arguments from Atheists

https://abitoforange.com/2018/03/05/actually-atheists-you-do-have-the-burden-of-proof/

You know, it is highly unlikely, that there will be any cosmologists or astrophysicist ruminating this post. I’m guessing they weren’t your target audience. Here, you are making a specious agreement and displaying, for all the world to see, a completely fallacious argument.

The burden of proof lies solely with the claimant. Atheism is the rejection of the claim that a god exists. It’s what the word means! The end. Over and out. That’s all folks. To subscribe anything else to the word is either hypocrisy or deceit.

In an attempt to, how did you put it, oh yes, “I know you are but what am I”, you conflate two diametrically opposite conclusions to the question of origins implying that the two are meritorious. They are not. The claim that god did it is a conclusion that has no probative value. A dead end. A terminus to inquiry. As a layperson I have only a rudimentary understanding of the topic but I know the process is exacting. The current understanding of the question of origins is not a claim of surety but are reasoned conclusions based solely on a process called science.

Its cute that you like to use big words. I used to do that a lot back in high school.
But I have to make this quick because I have a science lecture to give to some preschoolers in an hour (And I’m not even making that up).
1. cosmologists and astrophysicist ALWAYS ruminate my posts! They are the only people I allow to subscribe.
2. You call my argument “fallacious” but offer no reasons WHY it is, and thus I do not believe you really think it is. I think this is emotional name calling.
3. You say “Atheism is the rejection of the claim that a god exists. It’s what the word means!” But I do not believe this. I reject it. Which means, you have the burden of proof and must prove it to me.
4. I don’t think you will even try.
5. It won’t matter if you do, because I have already addressed this many times in posts and videos like the ones you will find here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9H1r9fw21g7Akt9phRHQeYZ8kdLLa-nn
6. That you think the claim that God made the universe is a “terminus to inquiry” only shows how little you know about Creation science, or science in general which was founded by Christian creationists, and which can only exist in a Christian worldview.
7. It also shows how little you know about the MANY ways evolution/big bang have LITERALLY Stopped the progress of science because of the dogma of those fool ideas.
8. If you think Big Bang or evolution are based on science, then you are in good company, but sadly, a company of fools.
8. Check out the truth here: https://abitoforangeacademy.wordpress.com/
9. And have a nice day. I’m off to preschool to talk science with people who don’t put on airs by using big words. They don’t know any.

Help Us Create Rent-A-Friend Radio Studio!

Rent-A-Friend Radio Studios is planned to be an ongoing project with new releases every month. It’s a multi-topic entertainment podcast that you can walk around inside of, as opposed to just sitting there and listening. You can download the first episode for free at:

https://rent-a-friend-2000.itch.io/rent-a-friend-radio-studio-sept-2018

Explore the Rent-A-Friend Studio grounds! It’s mainly a bunch of low poly trees right now. But we’re open to suggestion. What would you like? A park bench or something? Some squirrels or bunnies? Let us know.

Begin your tour of the Rent-A-Friend Radio Studio with the receptionist. Until we can hire one, it’s Rent-A-Friend 2000. He does most of the work around here.

After you’ve had a chance to walk around and see the place, Send us an email with your ideas or artwork. We need decorations. You’ll see. We just moved into the place and are still trying to make it look like home. Have your kids draw us a picture we can put on the bulletin board.

Also, we will have a room just for replying to fan mail, so send us questions we can answer!

Send artwork, suggestions, or questions to:

AskRentAFriend@gmail.com

and thanks for being a part of Rent-A-Friend Radio!

Rent-A-Friend Radio is now a GAME!

It’s an exploration game and a small handful of podcasts rolled into one!

Rent-A-Friend Radio has gained fans on the internet, and now we take you behind the scenes to explore the Studio where the show broadcasts from! In this episode Rent-A-Friend 2000 talks about the Proof for God’s existence and reasons to avoid Shia Labeouf, and Bryan from A Bit of Orange warns us about the slippery slope of Wind Chill.

There’s a few items to click and maybe toss around, a poem and at least one way to die. So, be careful out there!

We hope to put out a new version of this adventure every month, so send questions, suggestions, and artwork for the office bulletin board to us at

AskRentAFriend@gmail.com

Download the game for free at:

And enjoy!

Don’t Touch That Dial! (Or we’ll all die!)

Our intrepid hero, Rent a Friend 2000, finds himself waking on the polished white floor of a strange place. After the explosion on the Space Station, he was sure he would wake up in heaven, but it seems he has survived! Miracle of Miracles! After a quick look around, he finds that the sinister Dr. Materialist and the ponderous Dr. Pensive have also both survived, as has humorous and expendable junior cadet, Billy, who they all call “Skippy” because they are all too polite to call him “idiot.”

Sam and the Unicorn

In reply to: https://abitoforange.com/2018/01/01/the-evidence-for-atheism-is-ignorance/

‘Because, unless you’ve seen every fossil in every museum or still encased in rock, then you can’t possibly claim that unicorns did not exist with anything but arrogance to back you up. Maybe YOU haven’t seen the evidence, but that doesn’t mean it’s not out there.’
Doesn’t that mean that you have to believe they existed or at least consider it until you have looked at every inch of earth possible without finding one? That just sounds exhausting!

 

Hello Sam,
Yes, admittedly, digging up every square inch of rock on earth would be exhausting. That’s why, despite all of my big talk, I secretly expect I shall never get around to doing it. But what it actually means is, one cannot declare definitively that something DOES NOT EXIST unless there is some LOGICAL reason. For instance, you CANNOT declare with 100% certainty that there are no dinosaurs living on earth right now. But I can claim with absolute certainty that there are no polygamous bachelors. Thanks for your comment! Continue reading

Taking a Closer Look at Nature

There was once a group of philosophers having dinner together, one of which was a Christian. The others asked him, “If someone were to ask you for proof that God exists, what would you say?”

He considered it for a moment, and then said, “I would take him into my garden, and I should show him the flowers, and trees, and insects, and the fish in my pond.” And then he went back to eating.

“That’s it?” his friends asked. “That’s all you would say? What if he looked around at your garden and said he still did not believe that there was a God?”

“I would tell him,” he replied, “to look closer.”

So get on your boots and grab some bug repellent, because today we’re venturing out into NATURE to take a look around! If you see a bear, STAY IN THE CAR. Continue reading
