    Link: How Not To Defend Atheism - r/atheism IRL - Interesting to see facial expressions to the usual expression (posted so 747Pilot can stop spamming the threads with it)

    I vote with kitteh. Seems like a 747Pilot setup in a poor attempt to disparage atheists.

    Every side`s got em; one just has scientific data to back em up.

    He is angry, he is shouting, but he`s shouting facts.

    747 you should have gotten a friend who had better acting skills to portray the atheist. That or paid him more. Very fake indeed.

    Many of you are saying fake, but I`ve encountered loudmouth atheists just like this. I`ve heard many of you spout this same atheist garbage before, here at IAB. Only now, when you see it firsthand, live, do you realize those charges you aim at Christians are both absurd and stupid.

    That is what militant atheism looks like, you`re only calling it "fake" because of how ugly and repulsive it is live and in person.

    Yes, We have some Christians just as ugly, in person, but we disown them. Whereas you claim your ugliness is fake instead. It would be better if you disowned these militants in your midst, but we know you won`t.

    So spamming on iab is like 2-3 relevant links related to 2-3 posts spread over the course of 1.5 months, which were also quickly deleted each time, without any reason given, even though then they weren`t spam the first 2 times they were posted in iab?

    Nutballs come in all varieties, theist and atheist alike. Just because atheism is a rational position doesn`t mean that everyone who`s atheist is necessarily rational, and this guy is *very clearly* not rational. I don`t think for a second he`s fake - he doesn`t use any of the ridiculous strawman arguments that theistic fake-atheists wrongly think atheists use - I just think he`s a bit (a BIG bit) unhinged.

    Yes, We have some Christians just as ugly, in person, but we disown them.

    That`s a very silly claim to make. You`re so obviously wrong that you`re just making yourself look silly.

    Whereas you claim your ugliness is fake instead. It would be better if you disowned these militants in your midst, but we know you won`t.

    How can "we" disown people any more than rejecting them so completely that "we" dismiss them as fake?

    In any case, there is no "we". Atheists aren`t a group because they don`t have any common beliefs.

    You`re not making any sense because you`re adopting irrational arguments in your desperate scrabbling for victim status.

    Could there possibly be crazy Atheists out there? Sure

    Does that prove Atheism wrong? Nope.
    No more than a crazy Christian loosing an argument proves religion is wrong. Both are entertaining, but don`t prove anything.

    Now the arguments made could have some validity. But its hard for a crazy person to use rational logic to make his point. This means you are generally getting a rational point of view from only one side.

    It`s why these types of posts are so popular. One side wants to prove the other wrong and thinks the one-sided argument "proves" it. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    747Pilot spamming on I-A-B for someone with your spamming-like-an-a$$hole history, is when YOU put up anything more than once.

    You would think after having something erased by a mod ONE time you could figure it out and not put it up again (and again, and again)

    You were banned as theguysmiley for continually putting up "DEATH TO THE PRESIDENCY" CONSTANTLY and linking to that one religious site that would have nothing to do with the conversation. Even when those got deleted, you continued and even put QR codes up for people to visit the site. THAT IS SPAMMING.

    You have been allowed to come back and we even put a warning on your profile page, that you seem to not want to heed.

    So yes anything YOU put up more than once is spam. Your history on I-A-B dictates it. I am trying to be nice and ask you nicely to stop. YOU are basically on probation and are being watched as closely as possible.

    I like the bit about how religion is antisemitic.

    I thought that the Jewish religion was a religion.

    I had some religious types knock on my door the other day proclaiming that not only could i be saved but i could live forever.
    I politely declined their offer much to their confusion, stating that i would miss my family and friends. `Oh, but they can live forever too` one of the fellows exclaimed, his chin wobbling in delight.
    `No thanks` i replied, `i`m not going to spend eternity floating around in space listening to my nan`s casual racism.`

    Bit disappointed here. I looked up at the sky like the guy said, `sky, clouds, sun`, there was lots of sky and clouds, but no sun. Just clouds and rain.

    It`s hard for anyone to be taken seriously when they dress like that and they shout over everyone else. He had some valid points, too bad he`s not smart enough to use those points correctly. There are dumb thesist and dumb atheist. This is why we don`t take the opinions of people like this. If you want a better debate on it. watch some of Dawkins debates, or Lawernce Krauss.

    Good point. He was a poor prophet for the Atheist cause.

    "Seems very fake and set up to me. IMHO."

    It does look like a false flag operation by the religious extremists.

    The reality is that most atheists are silent or courteously deny religion. We would tolerate other people`s self-induced delusion, as long as they do not harm the world.
