    Sadly this isn’t true in the Islamic world where blasphemy is likely to get you killed by the peaceful inhabitants. God, being non-existent, has yet to complain about it.

    That’s why the AK-47’s are a useful tool in getting the muslim disciples on their knees to receive that pig-shit-brainwashing-spiel….

    Hello fellow brain pickers. ITS the unpardonable sin ” Blasphemy “

    Please explain how you arrive at the conclusion of blasphemy being motivated by uselessness?

  7. The Heretic Says:

    You don’t even have to blaspheme in the middle east. You can be a true believer and they will still kill you.

    2010.01.23 (North Waziristan, Pakistan) – Seven civilians are kidnapped and executed by Sunni hardliners.
    2010.01.23 (Khost, Afghanistan) – A 16-year-old boy is sent straight to Allah by Taliban bombers.
    2010.01.23 (Helmand, Afghanistan) – Muslim radicals take out two children with an IED blast.
    2010.01.23 (Orakzai, Pakistan) – Three local soldiers are ambushed and killed by religious extremists.
    2010.01.23 (Paktika, Afghanistan) – Islamic hardliners fire into a taxi, killing three women and a boy.
    2010.01.23 (Gomal, Pakistan) – Two children are among four people dismembered by a suicide bomber.

    Remember, this is all in the name of Allah, president, chairman, and founder of the religion of peace.

    Note of lack of understanding – Why do they do this for 72 virgins? More worthless people I have never met. I hope that they are all in their 60s (the reason for their virginity) and ugly as sin…..and cantankerous!! Imagine having to deal with those 72 for eternity. LMAOROTF

    Dear Talnoy,

    Is my requote too hard to understand or youre pretending not to?

    Since blasphemy are the hypocrate & Atheist favourite way to blurt out their lustful dissatisfaction towards god and agreeing its a crime and implying that it did no harm to anyone, on the other hand expect that no need for alarm or confrontation to be blamed towards them & hoping their blashphemy gain some sort of support in degrading god unrealizing that they are doing a silly & lousy job which has no impact at all or in any way could jeopardise the religionist.

  9. solomon Says:

    That leaves;

    DAWKINS= silly

  10. Talnoy Says:

    Hello solomon.

    Firstly, English is good – you should use it. Secondly, I understand that your re-quote is meant to refute the original, but you use flawed reasoning and commit a fallacy. You imply there is no logical motivation for blaspheming, yet people do it leading to the irrefutable fact that there IS a motivation for blaspheming or people simply wouldn’t do it. That’s what I was trying to get you to realize.

  11. solomon Says:

    The Heretic
    Always cite actions by hypocrates to tarnish real true believers.

  12. CaptainZero1969 Says:

    What one makes of Islam’s claim to have predicted an expanding universe depends greatly of which translation one uses. The last clause Sol cites “verily we are expanding it.” is also well translated as “we are the ones who enrich it” or “we it is who made the vast extent” or “Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof.”

    Regardless, this hardly constitutes proof. To the extent it was the author’s original intent, this is a mere lucky coincidence. Additionally, the Bible appears to have gotten here first:

    Isaiah 42:5: “Thus says God, the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread forth the earth and what comes from it. . . .”

    1. The difficulty translating the Qu’ran (or Quoran or Koran or whatever) means you can kind of make it say whatever you want.
    2. This particular passage received no special attention until AFTER scientific proof of an expanding universe. This shows how believers yearn for there to be verifiable proof.
    3. This particular idea wasn’t unique or original.
    4. This particular passage is totally ambiguous due to the deficiencies of the language used. If God really wanted to give us information, She’d do so in a completely unambiguous means.

  13. tech Says:

    There is a lack of knowledge concerning the universe, but what does that have to do with God.He created the heavens and the earth and everything in it.Whether a persons believes it or not, proven or not. Just stop and look whose trying to prove these things” mere man ” who God also created.

  14. Talnoy Says:

    I’m confused as to why all these true believers troll these daily boards… why not just bugger off and leave us atheists/agnostics alone?

  15. CaptainZero1969 Says:

    Insecurity. The EXISTENCE of people that find the “proofs” of the moldy old texts uncompelling is deeply unsettling.

  16. Greg Says:

    Shit. I thought tech said he was leaving…..now we have TWO retards to deal with again….

    If brains were money tech and Sol wouldn’t have a penny between them.

  17. Greg Says:

    This is a great AQOTD. How can you blaspheme something that’s not there?

    It’s like saying Solomon is aquiring intelligence from his interaction with this forum. Simply impossible.

  18. tech Says:

    Well Greg, your a nasty person to say the least. However I’ll let that ride where as you don,t know me. Besides I don’t use such language to abuse people.As for anyone gaining intelligence interacting on this sight I doubt that I’m not thats for sure . Amusement !” YES “but thats all.

  19. CaptainZero1969 Says:

    Tech – why are you on this forum? What do you get out of this?

  20. Talnoy Says:

    “How can you blaspheme something that’s not there?”
    I’ll tell you.

    This quote is based on truth conditions of the existence of people such as yourself. You BELIEVE that god is real and one CAN blaspheme against him/it. If you encountered me on the street, promoting a book that argued against god, you would say I’m blaspheming against said god. Therefore making blasphemy, a real (and applicable) action, even though god (almost certainly) does not exist.

  21. Talnoy Says:

    Though of course i do agree that the blaspheming against something that isn’t there would of course be an excellent quote 😀

  22. Greg Says:

    It would be like punching the air and being accused of asault. Pretty much the same thing.

  23. solomon Says:

    Dear Talnoy,

    If you think so that ‘something is not there’ than why your lots do the silly job of bleshpheming at the first place?

    Thats why I said their motives are useless.

  24. Greg Says:

    That’s “assault”, not asault….

  25. tony cynic Says:

    Hello Tech
    ‘Hello fellow brain pickers. ITS the unpardonable sin ” Blasphemy “’
    So if I blaspheme your all forgiving god will not forgive me. Nice

  26. Greg Says:

    Solomon, you may think you’ve won that argument, but you need to remember that you’re making the claim for the existance of something. This something has dictated that anyone that does not believe in it will go to hell. I think it also dictates that it is a sin to blaspheme against it.

    So, by blaspheming against this imaginary being we accomplish three things.

    First, it shows that the threats dictated by your god are empty and baseless – let that useless POS god of yours strike me dead right now if I am wrong. See, baseless and empty threat. Your god is made up.

    Second, it shows my contempt for the absurdity of your point of view. Not for you as a person, really, but for the ideas that you promote. They are based on fantasy and are out of touch with the reality we see around us day to day.

    Finally, it encourages others to speak out. I know you would prefer that no one challenge what you say, but silence against your repeated, absurd proclamations would result in continued misery for the rest of us.

  27. solomon Says:

    Dear CaptainZero1969,

    If you said that gods words is a mere lucky coincidence than the whole scientific proofs in the Qoran should have also been a mere lucky coincidence? And do you know why Bible appears to have gotten the upper hand its because some of the revelation in the Bible is adapted from the true Torah,Injil or Zabur which is also from the same god.

  28. Greg Says:

    What “scientific proofs” are you referring to Sol? Do you even know what a scientific proof is???

  29. CaptainZero1969 Says:

    “If you said that gods words is a mere lucky coincidence than the whole scientific proofs in the Qoran should have also been a mere lucky coincidence? ”

    Yes. Even a broken watch is right twice a day. Even the Qu’ran can say things that end up being at least vaguely accurate. And I’ve yet to see an example from the Qu’ran that wasn’t easily dismissed. Or the bible for that matter.

    “And do you know why Bible appears to have gotten the upper hand its because some of the revelation in the Bible is adapted from the true Torah,Injil or Zabur which is also from the same god.”

    Yes, because the your holy book was built of the myths that came before it. It’s not surprising that they would be consistent in many ways. Obviously.

    Has the economy gotten this bad!?!

    “Rev. Steven Poole Arrested: Catholic Priest Accused Of Shoplifting Butter, Sofa Cover”

    But, but, but… Isn’t he afraid of going to HELL???

  31. Greg Says:

    tech, I apologize if you were offended by me calling you a retard. I realize it’s a very derogatory term and was intended for general amusement – which you claim to enjoy. Nonetheless, I usually reserve such ad hominem attacks for Solomon.

    You should be aware that if you’re not open to honest debate and inquirey on this site then you should be prepared for derision. It is, after all, an atheist site, so if you come here to challenge the way people think, you better have something more compelling than just “the bible tells me so” to back up your claims.
