I found this a while back and it's quite debateable
yes the guy who wrote it is someone I've seen in person, and trust me he's a local anarchist/athiest
My first reaction was to sigh at yet another one of these threads.
My second reaction was to read the idiocy spewing from this guy. And I'm flabbergasted. I certainly hope atheists like THAT are the minority of us. Most people I know are atheists because they are educated, rational thinkers who have come to that conclusion, not because they enjoy randomly insulting things and searching for conflict.
There's a difference between going to a debate and calling your opponent names with nothing to back it up.
I'm in a lecture right now, if I have some spare time when I get back I may address some of the...er..."points" this guy brings up
Wow just wow. What a complete dolt. If you are going to attack something like the bible you need to read the whole thing and not jsut pick out the parts that you dont like. That's a common complaint that people have against Christians!. I mean how do you confuse the two Mary's into one person? And If he had any more of the Bible he might have found that God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost are often refered to as One entity, a true Triumvirate hence the 'us' and the 'our'. I dont know what's worse though; that guy's arguments or the fact that some people *cough* are listening to him.
Well you know, people are stupid and this is one of the best examples
Mary Magdelene and Mary are two different persons I thing. Mary Madgelene was some random "prostitute" while Mary short was his mother. Am I wrong?
^no you are exactly correct. They were two very different Mary's. Which shows the complete ignorance of Vincent and anyone who heads his ranting as valid points worthy of reflection.
This fool makes atheistic arguments look weak.
There are sound reasons to criticise the Bible, just not the ones contained in there. His crticisms are obviously flawed so I wont bother spelling them out.
This is ignorance displayed in its purest form, how that dude can be so...narrow minded and plain idiotic is beyond me. Could he not at least grasp the basis of an arguement? There was no cohesion, no clear thought, just idiocy. It would be funny but he could be spouting this shit to people who dont deserve to hear it. He doesn't sound like a person who would debate his viewpoint but one who would simply be aggressive just to boost his ego. 27 years old as well! Just goes to show that maturity does not necessarily come with age.
I thought that these links would actually have legitimate, intelligent arguments. Boy, was I wrong.
Yes, the doctrine of the Trinity was not immediately obvious to Christians. It took a couple centuries of development, then the Church declared it as dogma, I believe.
This whole argument is fucking dumb. If your gonna critique the Bible you better have some solid fact and support. Not just making fun of the choice of word that "God" uses, "It was good". That is just an argument for the sake of an argument. Take this shit away!
