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.
I take off my bathrobe a come out in my skimpy PJs for those morons hose little old ladys they annoy me sooooo much! My parents were nice to them once ONCE!!!!
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...
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."
Says the man who also browses a website called I-Am-Bored. All my post count is indicative of is my eagerness to express myself. I have as much a life to look forward to as you do, if not more so.
"you need a girlfriend man"
Meh, they talk too much.
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.
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.
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.
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...)
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?
"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...
You don`t know how hard it is to live in Utah. NONE OF YOU.I LIVE IN THE CENTER OF MORMONVILLE AND IT SUCKS!
Because they are bored and vapid.
I wouldn`t sell a vacuum door to door, let alone a religion.
You got it in one buddy, me neither. I call myself a Christian but I get mighty pissed off when they come knocking on my door, let alone anyone else`s! That`s totally *not* the right way to go about it.
`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.
Unless you were referring to some other scientific proof? If so I`d love to hear it.
Outside of that, it is just a personal choice to believe, If you do, great for you, hope it gives you support, but don`t press your believes onto me.
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.
Since when do atheists follow the teachings of Charles Darwin?
I`m assuming this is false. `Cuz yeah. That makes no sense.
He was just another guy. A guy with great ideas, but not perfect ideas.
Hassling to strangers to get media attention? Notsomuch.
Seriously. If this guy was really tying to do something, and not just make some sort of entertaining film, he`d have protested this in a way that didn`t involve him being an asshat.
He`s not a drating hero. He`s a guy with an accent filming himself bothering people in Salt Lake City.
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.
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.
"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.
Question: Just imagine if you’re wasting your ENTIRE life… My reply: Then I am *shrug*. If I’m wrong, and I die, then at least I lived out a life of trying to find the actual truth of what IS out there. On the OTHER hand, if YOU’RE wrong, then you go to hell, where if I’m wrong, then nothing happens. *shrug* I think I have the better deal.
1. Stop bashing religions. Seriously. It`s retarded. Let people believe what they want.
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?")
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.
Though most mormons are uber hypocritical. But that just goes with the territory I suppose.
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.
I love the guy who`s like "Wow.... You really believe that?"
Oh, and Origin of Species is just an awesome book and I reccomend it to anyone with more than three brain cells.
Kappamu: it isn`t other people`s beliefs that annoy me. It`s other people going around shoving their opinions down my throat that I have a problem with.
Now all you need to do is realize what kind of danger you`re putting the rest of the world in by spreading your delusions.
And just out of curioiusity, why aren`t you questioning the docturine of your church that says you must irritate people at there houses?
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!
I`m so immature
"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.
ive never had any mormons or jw`s show up on my door but that was hilarious hahah "i dont care if u believe that christ was the antichrist!"
Ahh wait!!! Next time they come I`m doing this!! What`s something interesting to fake worship?
*shiver* they know my name...
Yes... that`s pretty creepy. The local Witnesses know ALL of the neighbors` names... including the dogs....
sorry for the rant- guess what pontificating blabbermouths woke me up today?
*shiver* they know my name...
