Best places in the U.S. to survive the apocalypse: Neighbor
Oh, by the way James, you were right, there are atheists in foxholes, all alone. Cause if I had been killed, fighting for you, at least I know where I was going afterward, an atheist has nowhere to go, right? I'd never have stared my foxhole with a man without faith.
Bingo! You've exactly nailed this smug, arrogant theists. They claim to be representatives of a kind, loving nature, "Hate the sin, but love the sinner" but in reality, they are hypocrites that rejoice at the thought of condemning people that are far more honest than they are to an eternity of punishment for that honesty.
It has become so pervasive in their attitudes and actions that the terms "theist" and "hypocrite" have become semantically equal.
Well, when Keith and James are done tooting each others horn...(snore). If it isn't true about god then you guys can laugh and say I'm a loon that's live a moral, boring, Christian life and wasted my eighty or so years. But, if the bible is true? Then i've got eternity to laugh at you guys getting a pitchfork stuck in your burning bums. Nuff said!
These comments are priceless, both as entertainment and as compelling evidence just how far man has fallen.
When you know trouble is coming, the sanest thing to do is to prepare for it. Why are the people who take preventative action labeled as loonies? Is it really better to just believe that "someone" will come to help you when you need it? Isn't that what the people in the Superdome in N.O. thought? How did that work out for them? I'm getting chickens and stocking my pantry and my medicine cabinet. No down side to it, really.
I agree. One big problem that people have is that they have the mentality that supplies are only a short drive away. Stocking up and rotating supplies is just good common sense for everything from a major disaster to being unemployed. As you say, no downside except a little extra effort.
You are correct. Maybe that's why there ARE theists in foxholes. They are busy digging them and preparing for trouble with practical, realistic action instead of wasting everyone's time praying.
Yes, the xian god is the same god that the jews and muslims worship. The same false sky-fairy that does nothing to add to the value of the human race, but detracts so very much. The same imaginary being that causes hate, prejudice, and war. Yep, that's the guy!
Hate, prejudice, and war are all things human do to each other, regardless of their religious beliefs :P
That's right. But it's religion that drives those things. Bad people will always do bad things but it takes religion for good people to do bad things.
Most of the problems of the world are, and always have been caused by religion. Currently, think of Northern Ireland and the Middle east. Historically, think of the Crusades, the Inquisition, and the dark ages.
Humanity will never be truly free until the black yoke of religion is lifted by the clear light of truth and rational thinking.
Maybe because, deep down, he knows his god is a scam and he is too cowardly to face the truth? Perhaps that is why theists never truly engage in a debate with rational people. They know they have no facts, no proof, nothing except the lies they have had brainwashed into them.
Unfortunately, you are correct on both counts. I think a single nuke would not take out the power for the entire country, just all of the east or west coasts depending. hat would be bad enough, right?
You're also right about the solar storm, and we are due for another really big one withing the next 28 months. So you are maybe more prescient than you know.
Reminds me of the good O'll days when all I had was a czech gass mask, case of MRE's and a 12ga....
These things might work for world war 3 which surely will be nuclear and infrared. But do you really think that you can hide from God. The bible already prophesies that men would try to hide in cracks in the ground and people will flee to the mountains. You cant hide from God's judgment but you can accept him as you Saviour and LORD.
Isn't it absolutely amazing how generations and millions of people just completely ignore all the obviously wrong, completely preposterous, contradictory crap that fills the bible? And not only believe, but actually get incensed when someone actually has the audacity to question their delusions. Blows your mind that people can be that moronic.
When you do point out the facts, you "are not showing proper respect". How anything that was founded upon a lie and has espoused lies and ignorance from then until now deserves respect is something that seems to escape this simple-minded atheist.
I am sure some theist will explain it to me in terms so clear and simple we will all wonder how we could miss such brilliant logic and obvious facts. (Sarcasm icon badly needed here)
If you expect any rational people to believe anything in that badly-translated collection of bronze-age fables and lies created by near-savages, you must be even more deluded than you sound.
Try thinking for yourself for a change. I t may hurt a bit at first as you have to give up the brainwashing you've had all your life, but, "The truth shall make you free."
People would actually read the bible in its entirety, they would realize what a bunch of badly-translated bronze-age fables they are. Then perhaps more people would start to realize that it's all a scam and start to behave rationally.
If people would simply read 2Peter3:10 that will tell what will happen. "But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare." It won't do any good to buy your head in the sand, or anywhere else for that matter.
I'd read Little Red Riding Hood. It's MUCH easier to understand and just about as useful. And at least most people understand it is nothing but a story. Sounds like you take your delusion seriously.

Wasn't that from the original Planet of the Apes? It was on here a couple of nights ago but I didn't get to see it.
Yes, at the very end when Heston saw the Statue of Liberty and realized that he had traveled in time instead of space. HI-larious!
If you really want to go somewhere that is so off the track, no one knows about it, you need to go to the Yaak in Northwestern Montana. People go in, and don't always come back out, Even law enforcement tries to keep their presence to a once a week thing.
#10 is a good way to get shot or kicked out. If you are planning to show up and mooch off of someone's hard earned preparations, bring at least a 3 month supply, tools, and a good attitude towards working.
Parasites are not welcome anywhere.
Actually, it doesn't say anything about mooching off of your neighbor. It specifically says that you should get to know that person now, help them out, basically become part of the solution, instead of waiting until the event and being part of the problem.
A fistful of sleeping pills, a plastic bag and some duct-tape can give you want you want.
With far less inconvenience to your neighbors.
I dont really think most of us have the big bucks to do all this and would be fired upon if we tried to get to some of these places. I would rather go with all my friends to the ranch in the sky than stay here.
In the past we built the Tower of Babylon , in the 21st century we're building Cellar(s) of Babylon. Tssk!
