There are few things more fun than perusing the comments on the MLive website whenever there’s an article about CFI Michigan, and the recent article about our lawsuit over the Richard Dawkins speech cancellation does not disappoint. There are some hilariously idiotic comments, like this one from LifeAsAChristian:
I guess believing, as Dawkins does, that extraterrestrials came millions of light years (against Albert Einstein theories) to plant human life here is easier to believe than a loving God who created humans with freewill and then sent his Son to die for a sacrifice for those peoples sinful ways. We all have the right to choose what we believe, more than not it is the atheists who cry when we choose to follow our hearts rather than our minds, our souls rather than what our eyes tell us.
Wow. So much stupid packed into one paragraph. I’m sure it will come as quite a surprise to Dawkins that he believes aliens planted life on earth.
And from Tracks:
Who are atheists trying to convenance themselves there is no God?Atheists cant sway a true believer so whats your point? Is it because you feel your a minority,and want to feel better about what your beliefs are,by trying to convince the struggling to buy into your philosophy?Why do people have a conscience?if we didnt, we all would kill, steal, rape, and feel we could do what ever we wanted to do with no rules to live by.So if someone didn’t like what we said they would hunt us down and kill us.I know this might sound harsh but its very true.Your consciences doesn’t come from the sea,or the stars in the universe it is a gift from God (THE HOLY SPIRIT).
I would never try to “convenance” him otherwise. Whatever that means.
This is so funny. How can you sue based on religious freedom when you have no religion- when you are anti-religion. Of course, you can’t.
Why are you not writing books about 6 headed dragons from Mars? Is it because they don’t exist? Yet, you write books and preach that there is no God. If there isn’t- why would you protest something that doesn’t exist?
The truth is that you know there is a God. You are just attention seekers who don’t like a structured religion. That is Ok. Attend a Catholic Church and try to make changes so it is more current to your thinking. Or a Babtist Church, or Jewish or whatever.
But protesting, writing books and whining about something you don’t believe is real? That is laughable.
And a follow up from jdb:
I think that they do this because religion provides purpose, meaning, contentment and happiness for many people – and they sure can’t stand anyone having that! That is why there are so many condescending comments from the athiests here.. and probably why they are suing a private club for not wanting to let them use their facilities..
There is no logic or reasoning in atheism. The fool says,”There is no God.” Fools following around fools, pretending they know where they are going, and they are actually going nowhere.
The comments on the Detroit News article on the same thing weren’t quite so bad, but still had some amusing ones, like this one from Brian Kitchin:
So why can’t he cancel him? If he had a signed contract he probably owes him the money though. Atheist are some of the most thinned skinned folks I’ve ever known. I guess they take any slight personal. It’s hard when you consider yourself the center and most important being in the Universe to take any correction or not get your way.
I love how he answers his own stupid question — they had a signed contract — and then goes on to offer silly speculation about atheists thinking they’re the most important being in the universe to explain the non-answer to that stupid question.
