Atheists say the same to Satanist as they do to God believers, none of it is real. The difference is the God botherers hold positions of power, either in politics, money or in control of people's lives. I don't know many satanists involved in paedophilia but I know the Catholic Church globally has been involved in it for centuries and has so many victims.

While the notion was approaching exagerrated mass hysteria levels in the US in the mid 1980s, some so-called Satanic circles actually were involved in pedophilia.

Really? What is the equivalent in atheism of the Vatican? Or Mecca? Or the thousands of TV channels devoted to religious BS pouring out in every country?

I don't know of atheist terrorists and atheists are quite happy to coexist with those of faith, where they draw the line is where you personal belief becomes influential in politics or the rule of law. It's fine to have your belief, but leave others alone that do not share that belief.

Except that personal beliefs - primarily Christian here - are not only influential in politics, they are the basis of our morality, laws, and culture.

Atheists have taken legal action all the way to the Supreme Court in the US to try to remove everything from Nativity Scenes in public, Christmas trees at airports, the display of the Ten Commandments in goverment buildings to removing the mention of God from our money.

You honestly aren't aware that in Britain, where you're from, this has been so extensive that the Church of England has only 10% of the population calling themselves members, and a slowly increasing number of Brits seeking some sort of faith to join are turning to Islam because it doesn't get maligned as much because that would be considered racist?

Atheists can be a rather zealous lot themselves.

Creationism is pretty universal. It's the simple truth that the ecosystems, planets, and galaxies were organized by Intelligent Design instead of random chaos.

Biology class should point out the holes in the theory of macro-evolution. And other science classes should point out the holes in the assumption of natural formation.

It's not a simple truth, it's mytholgy for simple minded people who could not fathom the truth.

The continuing sequence of micro evolution adds up to macro evolution.
Granted, this was necessary to fill the glaring gaps creationism does not even bother to address, but all it does is verify evolution - graduated changes passed on to following generations.
reply
1 up, 3 replies
I find the idea of random chaos organizing something so complex as genetic coding, the human brain, and this hospitable planet, to be more far-fetched than Creationism. Atheist arrogance is modern mythology.

Plants and animals reproduce after their own kind (Genesis 1:21-25). The original Neanderthal skeleton studied by Boule has more recently been shown to have been a person with severe arthritis (Harold G. Coffin, Creation: The Evidence from Science, p. 10).

Science is about observation, right? We’ve certainly observed microevolution—different breeds of dogs, different races of humans, mutating bacteria. It’s like minor horizontal changes, occurring within strict limits. Niles Eldredge said that virtually all members of a region’s, or an era’s, biology remain stable, with minor fluctuations (The Pattern of Evolution, p. 157). No one has ever observed macroevolution—major vertical shifts. It doesn’t seem to be happening now, for there are no living links between the different orders of life. I mean, there are felines and canines, but no “cafelines.”

If we take the fossil record at face value, macroevolution hasn’t occurred in the past either. According to Darwin’s theory, the fossils should present a line of indistinguishable, transitional forms in the process of evolving. But they don’t. It’s not just a case of one missing link…whole sections of the chains are missing.

What’s more, according to DNA, cows are more closely related to dolphins than to horses. Umm, that makes zero sense in Darwin’s evolution. But it makes sense in theology. You see, similarities in DNA structure don’t mean a common ancestry…just a common Maker. “There is no reason whatever why the Creator could not or would not use the same type of genetic code based on DNA for all His created life forms. This is evidence for intelligent design and creation, not evolution. …The apparently small differences between human and chimpanzee DNA obviously produce very great differences in their respective anatomies, intelligence, etc. The superficial similarities between all apes and human beings are nothing compared to the differences in any practical or observable sense” (Henry M. Morris, Ph.D., “The Scientific Case Against Evolution,” www.icr.org).

Darwin knew of DNA? He said Perrisodactyla and Artiodactyla are one? For the sake of your argument, let's say he did. Regardless:

1. The science was in it's new born infancy. Science, by design, seeks to perfect knowledge. Mistakes are to be expected in theory and are rectified when recognized.
The ossified mythology of people who think stars are angels and the world is a flat slab riding on a turtle's back does not.

2. Darwin was a charaltan anyways.
His story is that he sat on his idea for 20 years and suddenly 'remembered' it after Alfred Russell Wallace sent his theory to Darwin for review and aid in publication. Darwin did, only forgetting to mention Wallace.

So holding Charles to correct DNA analysis is not a prerequisite for the accuracy of the notion he stole.

The similarity between ungulates is accounted by Convergent Evolution. Horses and cows are hooved, but any farmer even back in Biblical times knew they were differences. Odd vs even toed, guts, teeth...

Horses are closer to humans and elephants (think middle finger) than to cows, who are closer to dogs than to them. It was originally thought Cetaceans evolved from Creodonts, also thought as the ancestors of Carnivores. Now it is known that they EVOLVED from artiodactyls - as you yourself backed by mentioning the close genetic link (also evidenced by sharing a four chambered stomach and distinctive ear bones). Heck, turns out Creodonts might not be the ancestors of Carnivores for that matter.
Almost forgot, the Bible identifies whales as fish, not mammals. Drawings from the heyday of whaling even show them with gills and scales!

Felines and Canines represent the two big branches of that order. There are different species, some closer, some more distant. Gaps occur as lineages diverge, remember?
Hyenas, despite a superficial resemblance to dogs, are closer to cats, as are mongooses. Weasels, which bear a resemblance to mongooses, are closer to dogs and bears.

Ahh, but I digress. Hippos, originally accepted as closest to pigs, are actually closer to whales & porpoises, DNA has shown.
Funny how this divine 'intelligent designer' created them as land whales, and left aquatic whales the remants of a useless pelvis within their body. Then again, we have equally useless appendixes and on occasion, wisdom teeth, and we were created in your intelligent designers defective image, so tis cool,,,

"I find the idea of random chaos organizing something so complex as genetic coding, the human brain, and this hospitable planet, to be more far-fetched than Creationism. "

Reality doesn't care about what you find believable or not believable. You're making an argument from incredulity, which is a logical fallacy.

As far as "kinds", that's not a scientific term. It's a biblical one. What exactly does "kind" mean? What are the biological boundaries of a "kind"?

And what you said about the second law of thermodynamics tells me how little you understand it. And your quote from Henry Morris doesn't help at all, since no scientist takes him seriously.

Far fetched? Ever seen the human brain down to it's structure, nerves, cells, proteins, hormones that flow through it, etc, or that of one that is abnormal? Or aged? The Bible cover any of that? Oh, that's right, it does - demonic possession, or a curse from God visted unto the children of sinners...
And you are correct about that - easier to think a petty vindictive bogeyman in the sky causes cerebral palsy rather than nerves not sheethed in sufficient myelin, or demented rather than clumping nerves misfiring in the that of someone with Althzeimer's

You attempt to use bits of science configured to to a religious scaffolding - YOUR religion, conveniantly.

Despite Noah supposedly taking 2 of EVERY animal (or at least not the unclean ones, or, but he did anyways, and...), we have the remains of creatures which are extinct, most of those not mentioned in the Bible, despite the fact that Adam named every one of them - or was that only those in Eden, or outside in the world where the Gods also created them...?

Anyways, not every creature to have lived has been discovered, as new ones are found all the time. Of course there's gaps, but those are narrowing over time. Take the illustrious "Where's the missing link?" question STILL asked by creationists. In terms of humans, turns out there isn't one, there's several. Some are not even links, but branches, dead ends that didn't lead to modern humans. So much for this single linear threads of transition theory you refer to as Darwinism which is not.
Speaking of.... It has been known for decades that the first identified Neanderthal was riddled by athritis. The stoop shouldered image that lingered was incorrect. The rest found have not been malformed by such. Further, as they began to disappear, hybridized fossils of H Neanderthalis and H Sapiens have been found. Intermediary cranial features, limb lengths... Now we can openly admit that facial characteriscs of Caucasions (higher bridged nose, narrower elongated skull, sloping forehead) which resemble Neanderthals do because they came from them.

It is curious that chimps, as you mentioned, so closely resemble humans, reckon that intelligent designer was running short on ideas. The farther back, the closer they become. Bear in mind that the transitions are not merely variants on the same plane, as the greatest differences occur further down the strata. Creatures evolve, lineages separate, and links widen over time. That's what evolution does.

A final piece of evidence against evolution is the second law of thermodynamics, which says that all closed systems—physical, chemical, geological, and biological—all closed systems naturally deteriorate towards disorder and simplicity, unless an intelligent Design intervenes. “Simply saying that the earth is open to the energy from the sun says nothing about how that raw solar heat is converted into increased complexity in any system, open or closed. The fact is that the best known and most fundamental equation of thermodynamics says that the influx of heat into an open system will increase the [disorder] of that system, not decrease it. All known cases of decreased entropy (or increased organization) in open systems involve a guiding program of some sort and one or more energy conversion mechanisms. Evolution has neither of these. …Natural selection cannot generate order, but can only ‘sieve out’ the disorganizing mutations presented to it, thereby conserving the existing order, but never generating a new order” (Henry M. Morris, Ph.D., “The Scientific Case Against Evolution,” www.icr.org).

OK, there's evidence to prove that we evolved from micro bacteria, but all the evidence for creationism is a big, old, book. How about Epicurus. "Is god willing to stop evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able not willing? Then why call him god?" If god is all powerful, then why make other religions? Hmm? If he is all powerful, then how did an angel go evil, and become Satan? Why did Hitler, A CHRISTIAN, be so evil? God did make us to be like him apparently! So is god a fascist? A so-called brainless liberal? If god was all powerful, why doesn't he just destroy the devil, and stop all evil? Or is the devil too powerful? I've got more, just not more time.

"Why do Atheists only attack Christians and no other religious group?"

Because 1: Most satanists are trolls who don't actually worship Satan; 2: because christianity is the most prevalent religion, and thus the easiest to "attack"; and 3:because you're cherry-picking to support your persecution complex. If you did the f**king research instead of whining online about how persecuted you are, you'd realize that there are plenty of examples of atheists attacking non-Christian religions.

What's the straw man? The initial accusation was why atheists only attack Christianity And not Satanists. My point was that most people don't know any satanists and they're not out there trying to change laws to fit their religious views forcing everyone to abide by them.

You jumped in and got defensive then went on the attack when I never questioned your honesty nor was I even debating with you. I asked a question. The fact that youve met "some" is interesting considering most people have never met one. Now you're saying they're people in prison with satanic tattoos then that makes sense.

I stand by my original argument that atheists don't attack satanists because they don't know any and never hear or see any of them to have an issue with. Where on the other hand, Christians seem to be everywhere pushing their religious agenda on everyone while also behaving unchristian like both in what they say and do. If that's too difficult of a concept for you to grasp then by all means, continue with your ad-hominem attacks.

I'm not quite sure what your point is here, but I'm guessing you're saying there aren't a lot of Satan worshipers?

To answer your question, I don't know what your idea of "Satan worshiper" is exactly, but the way I understand it, according to the Bible, anyone who does not worship God (good), worships Satan (evil). I believe anyone who worships anyone or anything but the one true God, are Satan worshipers, even though most do not go to a Satanist church and "praise Satan."

With that in mind, I know a lot of "Satan worshipers" and a lot of Christians. Or I could just say I know a lot of atheists.

I know where all the Christian churches are in my neighborhood. It's obvious. I see evangelists on my tv, they comment about politics on the news, the Pope is out there going on tour... People who aren't as religious feel as though the religious right is trying to push their beliefs on the populace, and they are. They donate to politicians, they're behind defunding planned Parenthood, and going after Roe v Wade... The day Satanists start being obvious about influencing legislation that affects people negatively, you can expect atheists to go after them, too.

Having a prayer room for Muslim students isn't teaching kids to be Muslim, although I would say that that likely does violate the Establishment Clause. And if a student was suspended just for bringing a Bible to school, then the school was wrong. They can't legally do that.

Again, if Jesus and the Bible are taught in a proper historical context, that's fine. But many people want to shoehorn Jesus and the Bible into areas where it isn't supposed to be, like science and American history.

1) I don't know anything about Satanists or what they believe, other than the fact they do not believe Christ is the true Son of God. I've heard from some claiming to be true Satanists that they believe that the Bible is opposite of the "truth" and that Satan is the actual god and God is the fallen being. Outside of that, I have no clue, so I can't tell you if you're being factual with that statement or not.

2) While I'll give you that Christianity is easy to attack (mainly due to the generally peaceful nature of true Christians), it isn't a religion. True Christians believe Christianity is a relationship Christ and not a religion. Religions like Islam are not easily attacked due to the fact they are violent in nature and will physically go after those who oppose. Christians (true Christians) do not.

3) On this point, you sound very angry when there is no reason to be angry. So you've had "bad experiences" with some so-called Christians. So what? You have no idea what the OP of this meme's intent was/is. You coming on here and whining about something you don't seem to have too much knowledge on shows your lack of civility.

1. Actually pretty sound reasoning, so I'll skip this one

2. I actually can't believe you're saying that with a straight face. That's hilarious. The No True Scotsman fallacy is strong with this one! Until very recently, Christianity was just as violent, if not more violent, than Islam was. I'd provide examples, but to not have seen any examples whatsoever already, you'd have to have been willfully blind to them, so I won't waste my time just to hear more NTS BS from you.

3. Well, firstly, you aren't actually addressing my point at all. There are PLENTY of examples of atheists attacking non-Christian religions, it's just not addressed that much, since the theocratic far-right wouldn't have nearly as large a following without the Christian persecution complex which comes from the "Atheists are personally attacking us and only us and trying to destroy our religion, culture, and lifestyle", which is also BS. Just because a few people are being mean to you on the internet doesn't mean that you're suddenly not the largest religion on the entire planet. Secondly, you seem to be assuming that I'm an atheist who has some sort of grudge against Christianity. I'm not. My religion does not matter, and I take personal offense at peoples' ignorance and persecution complexes. When you call me "ignorant", I nearly burst into tears of laughter from the sheer amount of psychological projection. Thirdly, how could I have known the author's intent? Well, I quoted the title in my first post, didn't I?

The fact you believe Christians have been more violent than Muslims is quite amusing to me. Then you don't give any examples. Christians are not a violent people. People claiming to be Christians (the KKK, Westboro Baptist Church, etc) don't represent true Christianity as much as average Muslims in the United States don't represent true Islam. You can't name one violent act someone the name of true Christianity in the past 150 plus years. I can name thousands of violent acts done in the name of Islam in the past few years. Don't act like Christianity is far more violent just because you have some kind of vendetta against this group.

Adding the word "true" allows you to take any response given and say it doesn't count because it's not "true" Christianity. I can name many acts of violence done in the past 150 years (even 50 years) by Christians, but you'll handwave every last one away by saying those people weren't "true" Christians.

If you remove the word "true", and just go by what the people say about themselves, then there are many acts of violence, murder and terrorism committed by self-identified Christians in the past 150 years.

What you're doing is essentially trying to control not just the question but the answer, too.

I'd like to hear (read) some of these so-called acts of violence done in the name of Christianity compared to those done in the name of Islam.

You can argue that using the term "true Christianity" is wrong, but I know what true Christianity is and the KKK and Westboro are not true Christianity. They may claim the religious part of it, but they aren't true Christians. They don't live it and they don't preach it.

What does true Christianity look like on the surface, anyway? I've seen more Christian-like behavior from some liberal heathens in the past few years than I've seen from others who go to church every Sunday and profess to ascribe to Christian ideals.

Okay, I understand that acts of violence IN THE NAME of Christianity do happen, but those committing the acts are not reflective of true Christianity.

Here's just one article. You can also find a larger article on Wikipedia about Christian terrorism.

I appreciate you admitting that acts of violence in the name of Christianity have been done, but you still resort to saying that those people aren't "true Christians". We're back to the No True Scotsman fallacy.

I don't believe that they are more violent than Muslims, I believe that they WERE HISTORICALLY more violent than Muslims. Christianity has most definitely changed for the better in the recent few centuries, whereas Wahhabism, colonialism, ethnic conflicts, etc have gradually been making the already rather violent Islamic religion even more violent and politically radicalized. You say you want to have a rational conversation, but you continue to assume I have something against Christianity (and even "had a bad experience with 'so-called' Christians", something which is most definitely far from the truth of the matter), when I'm really just pissed off that another person who didn't do their f**king research is claiming that the largest religion in the entire f**king world is somehow "persecuted". You also continue to utilize the "No True Scotsman" fallacy despite me repeatedly informing you that it is a logical fallacy, which only opens you up to looking ridiculous. Also, I kinda can name a violent act in the name of true Christianity in the last 150 years. There have been many Christian terror attacks.

Well said and then some.

I used to frequent a forum where so-called Satanism (LaVay-ist nonsense is not Satanism, and like you pointed out in #1, most who say they are are just pretend) came up, especially with one resident who claimed to be one and wouldn't shut up about it (we thought him a troll too). Most of the members there were British, and the disdain they have for Christianity and other religions would make the cross waving 'victims' on this site evaporate like a wad of tissue paper at a Nevada nuclear testing site.

Anyways, this fella and the rest of the Halloweeny crew got racked over the coals like any other religion there regularly.

In the meantime, another member, a 'non-denominational' Christian (just like the rest of these zealots here who pretend they have no church but say the rest of us should go join one and find Jesus), kept doing the 'attack on Christianity' song and boo boo dance while saying Catholicism wasn't Christian and all of us on the site are going to hell. She'd post threads about this, all the while claiming she wasn't preaching.
People like that are a major reason I stopped going to church.

I think the point is that atheists do, in fact, debate Muslims. I mean, you couldn't find one video and CrazyPower found four. Whether one joe blo in the comments section thinks Muslims' creation theory is more palatable to him than Christianity's is beside the point. The bottom line is atheists do debate Muslims. I've known many atheists over the years and they're pretty much across the board about their disbelief. They don't usually give one religion a pass over the others, at least from my experience.

Members of the Satanic Temple do not believe Satan is a real entity. Like another person here said, they view him as a metaphor.

Satanists aren't flooding Washington, D.C. with money and lobbyists trying to affect legislation that impacts the entire country.

Satanists don't wake people up on Sunday morning asking them to go to church.

Satanists don't have TV and radio stations saturating the airwaves with their message 24/7

Satanists don't put up signs along the nation's highways from coast to coast telling people they need Satan. I've seen literally hundreds of Christian billboards and signs all over the United States, from California to Florida. You know how many atheist billboards I've seen in my years? Exactly three: one in Springfield, Missouri and two in Columbus, Ohio.

And by the way,if somebody has the nerve to say that there's no evidence for this meme,send them these verses:

Deuteronomy 22
28 “Suppose a man is caught raping a young woman who is not engaged. 29 He is to pay her father the bride price of fifty pieces of silver, and she is to become his wife, because he forced her to have intercourse with him. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.

Quran 2.223
Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will. (Which pretty much means "You can have sex with your wife whenever and however you want")

Satanic Bible
...the Satanist would not intentionally hurt others by violating their sexual rights. If you attempt to impose your sexual desires upon others who do not welcome your advances, you are infringing upon their sexual freedom. ... If all parties involved are mature adults who willingly take full responsibility for their actions and voluntarily engage in a given form of sexual expression - even if it is generally considered taboo - then there is no reason for them to suppress their sexual inclination

Where did you study the bible?
Have been in church very long?
Or did you find these on some atheist/antitheist website?

Commands to ancient Israel are not binding to Christians. Ancient Israel was told to go into a certain land and kill all the idolaters. For a modern day "believer" to say those texts justify their sin of murder is a misuse of religious text.

Luke 19:12 He said therefore, "A certain Nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return."

It's a PARABLE! The king in verse 27 is the same Nobleman in verse in 12! Do you seriously believe that a fictitious king in a parable is someone Christians are supposed to imitate, therefore his ordering his fictitious enemies to be slaughtered before him condones murder and terrorism today? Come on man...

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you didn't know that was a story and had nothing to do with anything Jesus did. But are you going to stop attempting to use that as a "proof" that Jesus condones/commands sinful actions?

Proverbs 6:16-18 (KJV)
16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

This verse has been used by anti-abortion activists to justify murder and terrorism. The Bible says that it was inspired by God, and it also says that Jesus is God, as well as the word (logos).

So you have two choices, as I see it. You can either admit that that verse was given by Jesus (since he is God), which proves my point, or you can say that that verse was given by God but not Jesus, which means Jesus isn't God.

You don't get to say that Jesus is God, yet he didn't inspire the Old Testament. If he's God, he did inspire the OT.

Genesis 9:6 (NIV)

This is another verse that has been used to justify killing abortion providers.

As far as your comment above that the Israelites were told to go into a land and kill all the idolaters, that's barbaric and disgusting. If Muslims did it, it would be barbaric and disgusting.

Another verse taken by hateful people and used to justify their own sin? OK, so what? That was when God established civil government and gave the basis for the death penalty.

Israel had direct revelation from God to go and perform His judgement on pagan nations that were committing worse atrocities that were even more barbaric and disgusting (No U! that's one of your favorite retorts right...)?

Those pagans were "causing their children to pass through the fire to Molech." They were sacrificing their children to their pagan gods so God judged them. Are you taking the side of those who burned their children alive? If God is, and he is the judge of all the earth, he can use one nation to judge another.

You can't define the existence of something if you don't first define what that something is.

Don't forget just how /many/ versions of the bible there are. In the King James Version of the Bible, Isaiah 14:12 reads:

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”

It may be in other versions as well, I don't know, but in that version it seems it may have been a bit of mistranslation, when the Hebrew for "daystar" (helyel) was translated to the Latin "Lucifer" and assumed by the translator to be a proper name for the devil.

The point is, it may or may not be one of his actual names (assuming he was real), but it is in at least one version of the bible.

Of course you'll find Lucifer in some versions of the Bible, because the word literally means "light-bearing" and Helyel has an almost identical meaning.

But the point is that "Lucifer" isn't a name of one character. It's a title put onto various characters throughout Biblical history, including both Satan as well as Jesus.

@JakkFrost I'm not arguing with you I'm just reiterating my original core point, in case there was some signal error happening, which it seemed to me like there was. But if not, then disregard my comment.

The point is you said it wasn't used as a name for the devil in the bible, and I showed you one version where it was. I even said it was mistranslation, essentially agreeing with you that it's NOT actually his name, so I don't know why you'd argue with me about it.
