My favorite part is when they`re talking to that old guy and he`s like "I`m a Bishop," In retrospect, I think I laughed almost too much. And when the other old guy hits the Aetheists with a broom.

Even though this is buried on the third page, deep in the seventh page of comments (I only read the first page)...

I live in Utah. Salt Lake City, Utah. It sucks, I hate mormons, I think the majority of them are ignorant and pushy. This guy, is my hero. And he couldn`t ACTUALLY go to the people that go door to door, those are missionaries (at least, that`s what they`ve always been when they come to MY door) and missionaries go somewhere else to learn, and push their believes onto someone else, in another country, or city, or state.

Anyone who lives in Utah is either LDS, and so they don`t come around to bother you (or at least, don`t bother you if they do come around) or has come up with some way of avoiding, or scaring the missionaries.

...But damn, this is just beautiful. He had an annoying voice though.

Oh, and before i get bashed: I didn`t actually make a church or anything of the like. It`s just a kind of personal "religion" that I tailored to my beliefs. No need for someone to come and show me "the right religion", I have one already.

Personally, I created my own religion: Apathism. It basically states that we don`t care if god exists or not, but live life to the fullest anyways, and take fact as fact, and theory as theory. Any takers?

Hmmm...

I don`t think Mormon`s believe in sleep. I don`t get them a lot of the time, but when I do, we`re always dead in the middle of dinner and it`s always some bitch pushing their beliefs onto us. Or trying to sell a dumb product. And the thing is, I tell them "I`m not interested, please exit our premises." but they won`t go the heck away!

I hate door to door people...They bug the piss out of me...

These posts are hilarious!
Gueetareest is pathetic in his arguments compared to Overmann.
I mean, Overmann has his arguments well thought our and well written, with organization and material from well established sources. Then Gueetareest comes in and spouts off, "Well, God is ruler!!! U suk! U have no g/f!!!!"
It`s just so amusing...

Overmann. YOU ROCK! i agree with you intierly. and to the people who argue with you: you dont agree with science, and you pick at the loop holes in evolution, and the big bang theory. they may only be theorys, but thats no reason to decide that MAGIC is the awnser. and yes that all creationism is. MAGIC. and there may be proof that jesus did exist. but not that he is gods son. he was obviously a street magician like david blane. if u worship jesus u should worship blane.

Quick reference. You know, it`s good practice in journalism, debating, holding someone to their word, etc.

"just one more thing... i see you have 1000 posts... thats pretty pathetic."

"your so called `facts` are just things that people believe. when what christians actually have witnesses. 13.7 billion years ago? thats just something some random guy said so that he could believe his stupid theory more"

You really believe 13.7 billion years ago was some arbitrary number? I suppose you would. Those with faith tend not to believe in other reasoning, and you`re a prime example if ever I saw one.

By the way, just because someone was there to witness an event doesn`t mean their account is truthful or an accurate reflection of what occured.

"so why is it so hard for you to just believe?"

Because the belief you are describing is irrational and unfounded. You choose to believe something you can have no knowledge of, no proof of. Which is fine... I suppose... but it`s not for everyone.

"how did those membranes get there in the first place? what made them crash at such a high speed? how could simple membranes chrashing together create everything? you know that space goes on for infinity, so why is it so hard for you to just believe? why would you want to believe that we dont see anything when we die?"

I don`t know, nor do I claim to know. Neither do physicists, neither does anyone. It`s a theory, but as such it`s supported by scientific research and facts based on principles. If you really wanted to make an effort to inform yourself you`d really do so, you don`t need me trying to explain something I know very little of.

You ask some decent questions as to what started the processes we know exist in the Universe, and that`s commendable: all science starts with questions. I`m not knowledgable enough to direct any of your questions directly but I will defend science in that I`m confident that when we acquire better technology and means, the human mind will be capable of understanding such fundamental questions, if they haven`t been answered already.

I suggest you look up the supporting evidence for the Big Bang Theory such as redshift, the expansion of celestial bodies, and background radiation. All of these indicate the existence of a large explosion. See if you can find out why they decided it occured 13.7 billion years ago, which isn`t some arbitary number.

Even if you cannot explain something, that doesn`t mean the results you used to derive at this something`s existence has been refuted. It still exists to be explained.

"god is not a hard thing to believe in."

Obviously not, but neither should be the acceptance of facts.

"and the big bang theory is just stupid because in the #1. how did those atoms get there? #2. what made them randomly start spinning. and #3. how could atoms crashing together create people. and fire. and space. and atmospheres and everything that is in the entire universe. that just not possible."

Oh God... what exactly do you think the Big Bang Theory is? All it states is that at one point in time about 13.7 billion years ago a very large explosion occured and gave birth to the materials that comprise the Universe. It says nothing that this was the start of all existence or anything, as something must have caused the Big Bang. Look up M Theory and read their extrapolations of what may have happened when the membranes collide. And I should indicate to you that these are physicists at the top of their field. (Oh that`s right, physicists are evil...)

"no amount of science can ever prove that jesus didnt resurect and leave his body to go to heaven."

I`m not saying science tries to. It leaves untestable, unverifiable accounts to religion.

"there are written records."

Darwin kept records of observations he made. Does this alone make evolution fact? Give you a hint: no.

"and dont say `well, we werent there so you can never believe that` because you know that its true and everyone knows its true."

Oh, you can believe all you want but that alone doesn`t make something true on anything but an individual basis. See, religion is a personal experience whereas science is universal. Anyone can partake of practical science; not everyone can believe or explain God.

"yes, the bible may have been written by men but it was written because of witnesses and seeing jesus born and everything."

Are you so hasty as to surrender your own judgement?

Gueetareest, science requires acceptance of facts, not belief. Belief has no grounds, no direct ties to the natural world, whereas science is strictly prohibited to the natural world.

"ok dude so called `science` didnt prove anything. all it is is people trying to make you believe in bad things."

What do you believe constitutes bad things? It`s not as if they`re trying to make you believe in Satan or anarchy or anything.

"and that is not an opinion it is actually seeing something. many people have seen what he saw. and it has been experimented on. its not an uncommon thing to see what my grandfather saw. lots of people have seen it. they describe it as a bright light. somepeople have made it so far that they saw actual heaven. its been in the news and on the internet. do you really think every one of those people lied? those thousands of people?"

Tell me, under what circumstances did these people see these things? I have a hypothesis...

Does anyone know who the most famous missionary was? It was Jesus Christ. Did he not go around attempting to educate people of his Church?
Also, imagine a situation where a person who was brought up in a Catholic family came to the conclusion that it was a load of crap. He searches for the truth. Perhaps he may find truth in the LDS (Mormon) Church. Perhaps he may have never found out about the LDS church if it wasn`t for the missionaries.
No I`m not Mormon or Jehova`s Witness but I believe that Atheists who give out about about Mormons or JWs knocking at their doors and claim that they preach crap are in fact doing the same themselves. We call that hypocracy.
Grow up people!

Some people say that the bible was written by people who saw and talked to God and that`s why we can`t believe in it.
I say that it could very well be written by some guys who were psychotic and had grand delusions of God.
I`m kind of leaning toward the latter, too.

I wasn`t sure weather I was agnostic or atheist before reading these comments. But now I consider myself agnostic. I do believe we have souls, I believe god is more of a spirit, that can change things. I do not believe the world was created by him. I do not believe jesus was his son. I believe the bible is only half true. Yes, religion annoys me in some aspects, it causes hate and war. But, it teaches us what is right. And to be good people. Overall, people can choose want they want to believe, as long as they do not shunt other religions and people. It is plain rude to disrespect someone for their beliefs, even if you do not believe them your self. Have a little more respect.

"oh wait nvm overmann ur just another dang atheist but if ur catholic then we should make a club and all you dang aheists can just go and cry cause you dont think that there is anything that happens when you die"

`When in doubt: assume`? Is that your doctrine?

I am not an athiest, I can assure you. Rather, I consider myself agnostic and I happen not to believe in God. Why not, you ask? Because I have theis incomprehensible compulsion to accept that which has been proven through science or that which I can base a firm foundation on. Religion and spirituality failing both, I don`t consider myself religious.

I don`t very well know what happens when we die but I do not presume to know as most religious people do. I`ll just leave it at that.

Yeah, I was a Mormon missionary, too. We never left the house before 9:30, and rarely did we knock on doors in the mornings or even in the afternoons. Some people were rude, some people were nice, and a whole lot of people actually did let you in. For some people, we annoyed them. For others, our knocking on their door changed their lives for the better, and I`ve been thanked over and over by them for doing so. But don`t try to be clever to the missionaries, they`ve heard it all, they`ve seen it all (yes, I`ve had a gun pulled on me, yes, I`ve talked to atheists, Satanists, Buddhists). Of course, I recommend listening to them, but, if not, just politely turn them down. They deal with so many rude people every day that they are far more courteous to people who are courteous to them. I have to confess to being deliberately annoying to people who were overtly rude to me :) They`re 19 year old kids, cut them some slack. They know a lot about life, but also have a lot to learn too

Gueetareest, your Grandfather`s account hardly constitutes scientific proof: his account is solely unadulterated opinion. Remember, opinion cannot be repeatedly experimented upon to reproduce a like result.

Unless you were referring to some other scientific proof? If so I`d love to hear it.

"now thats just plain ignorant. why do you say that? we have just as much right and reason to believe the universe was created in 6 days as you do to believe anything else."

Yes, you do have just as much a right as anyone else to believe in whatever you want. And if you get your jollies believing the world was created in six days, more power to you. But understand that you can`t expect not to be called stupid for going around believing such when scientific extrapolation has placed the age of the Earth around 4.6 billion years ago. There is plenty of reasoning and logic behind this statement and I suggest you take a Historical Geology class to learn the basic laws such as Uniformitarianism. Inform yourself before you choose to believe.

"And to say that there is no soul, no heaven, and no afterlife is PRETTY BOLD in the face of hundreds of people who have `DIED` and been brought back and seen both heaven and in some cases `hell.`"

So, what, we should just take their word for it? Believe this if you want, but it`s not proof. It`s not even a theory.

"My next reply is this, if there is no heaven, hell, afterlife, God, then who is to decide what’s right and wrong in this life? Everything that is `right` or `wrong` is decided based on rules and commandments by the `bible`."

You are overlooking the fact that humans wrote the Bible. Whether you believe this writing was inspired by God or not is another can of worms, but if humans wrote the Bible, then it was they who determined what is right and wrong and what constitutes morality. Which makes sense, because people believe in morality to this day and all throughout history.

"Darwinism spouts ideas like `survival of the fittest...`"

That term was not coined by Darwin, it was coined by Herbert Spencer, who was attempting to draw parallels with economics and evolution.

I don`t think the comedian was attempting to make a comprehensive argument for athiesm. Rather, I think he was drawing up a caricature of athiests and using that to annoy people at 9 in the morning. If you`d like to debate athiesm, I`d be more than willing.

"All people have a soul, and that IS provable. If we didn’t have a soul, then we’d be bodies that were empty robotic shells."

I think you are referring to energy, which we humans still do not accurately understand. To automatically assume that energy constitutes the biblical definition of a soul is completely unscientific.

and to those who are heading out on a mission soon: don`t be afraid, most people will be polite. and also, try not to be discouraged by the people who aren`t tolerant. =) so good luck.

"Now if only we can get all of the atheists to go around with actual proof and start getting some common sense in this world!"
ignorance is bliss. i suppose you dont realize that no amount of science will prove or disprove God, evolution, or anything that has happened in the past.

"It`s not a religion but more of a fact."
i hate when people call things facts, when there really is no scientific proof behind it, just scientific reasoning. you shouldnt.

"Now creationists are where the real stupidity lies."
now thats just plain ignorant. why do you say that? we have just as much right and reason to believe the universe was created in 6 days as you do to believe anything else.

Jehovah`s Witnesses do not force, thats what is great about it, it is all free will you can listen say yes or no. And that is that. There has never been force ever, that wouldn`t be fair.

The difference is that evolution requires no faith, no hope, and no love, that everything is relative. Where as Christianity requires one to become “Christ like” (what Christian means). Yes, Christians fail at this continuously, but at least they try. Darwinism spouts ideas like “survival of the fittest,” where as Christianity encourages us to HELP those less fortunate than ourselves to be up where we are as well.

Quote: “We follow the teachings of a man named “Charles Darwin”…
My reply: Charles Darwin was a man like any other who had a “Theory.” Which is why it’s called the “Theory” of evolution, and it’s full of loop holes that don’t make any sense just like any other religion. Charles Darwin also NEVER stated that we “began” as animals; he stated that we “changed.” Yes, things DO evolve, but that in and of itself does NOT take out the possibility that God “started it all” and “Began” our evolution (although this is not what I believe). And for the record, many believe that Charles Darwin ALSO died a Christian. The story can be both proven and NOT proven because some of his children claimed that he did and others claimed that he didn’t (Perhaps they didn’t want their dad to look like his work meant nothing)

My reply: Actually, whether you believe the entire bible is true or not. There are at least PARTS of it which are. For example, people like “King David” and “King Solomon” “Saul/Paul” “Nero Caesar” “Pontius Pilate” “Jesus” and other biblical figures DID historically exist. And if they DID in fact exist (Which the historically and factually did) I encourage you to look at their “STORIES”.

2. If you simply *must* tell people about your religion and pass out tracts, DON`T go to someone`s home. That will only annoy them. Try passing out tracts on the street or at a supermarket. If they decline, just smile and say "Okay. Have a nice day!"

3. If someone rings your doorbell with a tract and a religious book in their hand, try: A. Listening B. Politely Declining ("No thank you. I`m happy with my current beliefs") or C. Politely asking why they believe what they believe ("Would you mind telling me exactly *what* you believe and why you believe it?")

Mormon missionaries come to my house ALL the time, but its always after noon. This was pretty funny(on some parts) but alot of it is b.s. People assume all mormons are like that.

If you really don`t want to talk to them just tell them you aren`t interested they may be seem aggressive but it is just because they believe in what they are sharing.if you are polite back they will be more responsive. I could go on with much more but I should also point out that you are watching a clip that has been edited how many people did he talk to that were polite and talk to him despite not believing what he was saying a little critical thinking goes a long way people that is why the missionaries will always tell you it is up to you to find out for yourself if what they are saying is true.

Not that it matters but I wanted to point out a few inaccuracies in the clip and some of the responses. first I am Mormon (this is the correct spelling) and I served as a missionary for two years (in Canada so yes there are Mormons in Canada in fact souther Alberta was largely settled by Mormon pioneers) Missionaries are the only Mormons that knock on doors and they do not even leave the house to do so until 9:30am because of study schedules and such(he stated 8am)so generally you won`t see a Mormon on your doorstep before 10am on a Saturday. I enjoy sleeping in as much as anyone but come on people 10am is not that early. Second If you ever told a Missionary you worshiped Satan they would probably laugh and still ask if you were interested in learning more (people try to be clever all the time believe me after the 10000nd person it isn`t really all that clever. so as was indicated before the people that said they did rude things to the missionaries are probably full of it. (next post)

One time a JW caught me at the bus stop on my way to work, I had to talk to him for 20 min so I didn`t miss my bus. Do you know how hard it is to get a one of those people off your ass when you tell them your an aethiest and have nowhere to go? Ugh! Next time I`m telling them a Catholic.

If they ever come to my door their going to be looking down the barrel of my paintball gun. XD

Vid was funny though. I`ll mess with bible pushers, but I`d never hit them with a broom.

I laugh at mormons that come door-to-door. Hell, if I can argue with a creationist, mormons add nothing new to the fire. Now creationists are where the real stupidity lies. And it`s so awesome to argue geologic time with them. <3 creationists because they`re such easy material.

Though most mormons are uber hypocritical. But that just goes with the territory I suppose.

These guys kinda show what you shouldn`t do with atheism.

It`s the idea of Human species coming out from the world in steps rather than a poof.

It`s not a religion but more of a fact.

It didn`t seem to me that he was really dissing any religion, just the time of day they did it. He mentioned that at least the Salvation Army waited `til after lunch to make all there noise (which I`ve never heard). Anyway, just my observation.

I honestly doubt that most of these stories people are telling about how they chase away people coming to their doors are true. They probably just made them up just to sound cool.
Also, I`m morman as well. I don`t care what you think, I`m proud of it. I just became active again afters years of not going to church, and I regret not becoming active sooner in my life. I don`t care what anyone thinks and nobody else should either. I have friends who are athiests, christian, jewish, but I don`t care. What people believe is their choice. What I do care about is all these childish remarks bashing on a religion that a lot of people take seriously. People like that sicken me. Honestly, I`ve had a lot of people of many different religions (not just Jehovah`s Witnesses) come to my door and we just politely say "no thank you, we`ve found a religion we`re happy with" and we close the door. How hard is that to do rather than acting childish?

Umm... Well, I am Morman, I`m 18, and will soon be going on a mission myself, ( That`s when I spend two years going door to door telling others of Mormans). I`m really scared now. There are people at school who shoot hoses at them, point guns at them, scare or send dogs at them. I have been really looking froward to this day all my life, but every day, I realize just what kind of danger I`m putting myself in. I hope I don`t get shot. In all seriousness, I love being a Morman. I love life, and it`s treated me well. I have absolutely no regrets. I want others to enjoy the blessings that can come from it too. Now I agree, They shouldn`t come so early, but that`s just the way we do things. Please don`t hate us for it. Don`t hurt us or mock us. These missions are very sacred things for us, and to read comments like I read here honestly makes me reconsider. I never realized what lengths people would go to just to make us go away. I apologies If I ever wake any of you up on my mission. *sigh*

Once I have my own house, my response will always be:

"Oh you poor souls! You have lost the way of Venus, the god of love!" very dramtically, then, suddenly in a fangirl voice:

"She`s the goddess of LOVE! Don`t you just LOVE love? Love is good! LOVE IS WONDERFUL~" and proceed to blabber on insanely about Venus and love.

Coming from a family of Pagans, but being an atheist myself makes me love Jehovah`s Witnesses (the English version of Mormon`s? Or something completely different-I don`t know...) as if I answer it I can do the Darwinist bit, but my parents generally say `no we worship Jupiter/ the Sun depending on if it`s mum or dad.

what actually would have been better is if he had gone door to door with the request " DO NOT Bang on my door at 8:00 in the morning, how do you feel about it the other way around!". In canada we dont really have the mormons, we have the Jehovahs whom dont even talk to people anyomre they just shove thier literature ( Hate literature btw) and leave. I love how hypocritical all of them were, for so called " God fairing people" they were quite mean to them.... especially the bishop who should be setting the example for all his people.

I once had a pair of mormons show up on my doorstep. I told them I was a Druid(I`m really an atheist). They stared at me blankly. One asked, "What`s a Druid?". The look on their faces when I told them I worshipped trees was absolutely priceless.

i have a hard time with both believing in god or any higher being and at the same time believing that the diversity of life on our planet could evolve on its own in any amount of time. i was at a park roller blading one time and 2 mormons come up to me and i threated to stab them as i pulled out my pocket knife before they could get half way thru handing me there pamphlet or say what they obvious were. far as nocking on my door i have a very mean very big dog who scares the guy who reads the gas meter so bad that he calls us ahead of time to lock the dog in the house even tho he can read it from outside the gate so no mormon loser whatever they are called has ever step foot in my yard. they come down my street about once a week to.

tsaousa, when in the video did that guy in his house say he believes in people going door-to-door? Just because he`s a Mormon (and it doesn`t even say he`s a Mormon--he just lives in Utah), doesn`t mean he believes in going door-to-door religion-hawking. :P I`m sure there`s nothing in the Mormon Bible that requires the belief of forceful, inconvenient religion solicitation. That poor guy in his house. :(

As a Christian, I do find quite a bit of humor in this. Although religion is good to spread around and tell others, it`s not quite so good to try to spread at 9 o`clock on a Saturday morning. As my preacher once said, "It`s hard to try to pick up and force feed a stray cat, but if they`re hungry enough, they`ll leap in your arms for food."
