Questions to ask an atheist!

Dear Christians,

Here are some clever questions I have thought up for you to ask an atheist. If you are on an atheist online chat, you can copy and paste these questions to ask them, or you can confront an atheist in public and ask them the questions. Just watch how they can never answer these questions:

 

Can you explain what happens when we die?

If we came from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys living today?

Is it okay to commit murders, rape, homosexuality, going to stripbars, looking at pornography, and other forms of rebellion if you think there is no God to guide you?

How can you explain the way a banana fits the palm of the hand?

If Fox News is a dishonest channel, then why are the reporters such as Bill O’Reilly true Christians?

Did you know that there are biblical records of dinosaurs that were witnessed by men?

How did pond scum turn into us?

How did the eye form?

How did the Grand Canyon form?

If call yourself an atheist in regards to God, then do you call yourself an atheist in regards to Santa and Bigfoot?

How did everything come from nothing?

If evolution is true, how come we never see frogs turn into birds?

Have you heard of the Shroud of Turin?

 

Your’s in Christ,

Martin Baker

    These are some of the most ridiculous questions I have ever read. In what way is any one of them clever??

    Can you explain what happens when we die? No one knows the answer. We go in the ground. If in the very unlikely event there is an afterlife do you honestly think any of the religions on the earth guessed it right?

    If we came from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys living Today? If you speak french and you learn to speak English how come you can still speak french?? We didn’t come from Monkeys.. We have a common ancestor.

    Is it okay to commit murders, rape, homosexuality, going to stripbars, looking at pornography, and other forms of rebellion if you think there is no God to guide you?
    Homosexuallity is Fine, Strip bars and Porn are not illegal so if thats what you want to do its fine. The rest are illegal and very wrong. We don’t do them because we don’t want to go to Jail!!

    How can you explain the way a banana fits the palm of the hand? Lots of things fit in the Human hand.

    Did you know that there are biblical records of dinosaurs that were witnessed by men? There is mention of Dragons yes.. but there are Dragons in most Mythology books. They never existed in real life.

    If Fox News is a dishonest channel, then why are the reporters such as Bill O’Reilly true Christians? That made me laugh.

    How did pond scum turn into us? Made up of the same elements we are. didn’t turn into us.

    How did the eye form? Evolved from something much much less effective. Can you explain why your god decided to give better eyes to eagles than he gave us?? We are made in his image according to you.. why would an eagle get better sight that God?

    How did the Grand Canyon form?
    The formation of the Grand Canyon was caused by the constant erosion of the rock by the Colorado River over about 17 million years. Over time the river was able to carve a very deep channel into the Colorado Plateau.

    If call yourself an atheist in regards to God, then do you call yourself an atheist in regards to Santa and Bigfoot? Theism is a belief in some king of Deity. Do you believe Santa and Bigfoot where goods of some kind?

    How did everything come from nothing?
    Who is to say it was not always there? Or it all came from a Black hole? Again hard to answer. God did it is a cop out.

    If evolution is true, how come we never see frogs turn into birds? Because we don’t live long enough. However on a smaller level it can be observed, Fish changing to suit the environment they are in for instance. Also why do you think you need a new flu shot every year??

    Have you heard of the Shroud of Turin? Yes and it has been dated to about 1260 BC. So kind of late to the party. The fact that the face looks the way we see Jesus depicted now tells you its a fake. There were about 40 cloths supposed to be used to wrap the body.. All fakes. Pretty sure whatever he was buried in decomposed with the rest of him.

    So you see none of your questions are even close to clever. I suggest you remove this post before it makes its way to Reddit. You will look pretty silly. Or just ignore the answers and continue wasting the only life you will ever have chasing eternal life. whatever.

    Yours in Real Life.

    I’m going with what Rob said, except here is one small thing, a real banana without human intervention and selective farming (human controlled evolution)

    That’s a real natural banana.

    As for O’reily? Complete idiot.

  3. Paul Hutchinson says:

    When we die – Yes, bodily functions stop, this includes the brain which controls thought. You stop.
    Why are there still monkeys – If the ancestor of Americans are British, then how are there still British people?.. Monkeys are your biological cousins – you did not evolve from the monkeys you see around you today.
    Is it okay to commit murders (no), rape (no), homosexuality(yes), going to stripbars(sure), looking at pornography(yes), and other forms of rebellion(situation depending) if you think there is no God to guide you(morality does not require faith)?
    Banana fits in hand(it’s actually one of the most genetically modified fruit out there – the original banana is not pleasant to eat – you picked the wrong fruit) – even so… my penis fits perfectly in a man’s arse-hole – therefore it’s intended for it? Stupid question #next
    Christians lie #next
    (biblical records of dinosaurs) – there are also biblical records of unicorns – do you think they existed too?
    Pond scum – abiogenesis
    Eye – Evolution.
    Grand Canyon – Just google it – probably the same way all other canyons are formed, a geological process that took millions of years.
    Atheist for Santa/bigfoot – Atheism means “not theism” aka no god. Is Santa a God?.. but yes I don’t believe Santa or Big-foot exists either.
    Frogs into birds – If that happened, that wouldn’t be evolution, that would be transformation – you really misunderstand what evolution says.
    Shroud of Turin – Yes, it’s rather amusing.

  6. Orbotron says:

    Great troll!

  7. Science -- it just works says:

    Can you explain what happens when we die?

    >> Yes, our atoms return to the universe from whence they came and individual awareness goes out like a light.

    If we came from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys living today?

    >> You misunderstand how evolution works. Our ancestors diverged (as all species once did) from one of the myriad branches of biological life and very, very gradually became as we are today.

    Is it okay to commit murders, rape, homosexuality, going to stripbars, looking at pornography, and other forms of rebellion if you think there is no God to guide you?

    >> My morality is self-derived and tells me that rape is never allowable, murder only to defend myself or my family; homosexuality is not a moral issue but a biological one as there are dozens of species of animals where homosexuality has been observed; going to a strip club or looking at pornography are not immoral acts in my opinion.

    How can you explain the way a banana fits the palm of the hand?

    >> It fits into the palm of my hand in exactly the way that a cantaloupe does not.

    If Fox News is a dishonest channel, then why are the reporters such as Bill O’Reilly true Christians?

    >> Who says Bill is a true Christian (whatever that means) or that Christians can’t lie? How would Bill, if a 100% honest man make his entire channel honest?

    Did you know that there are biblical records of dinosaurs that were witnessed by men?

    >> No, there aren’t. I’ve read the entire book more than once, and except for massively stretching the text to say what you want it to say, there’s nothing like that in there.

    How did pond scum turn into us?

    >> Statistical probability given *enormous* amounts of time and enough combinations and re-combinations of RNA…you need to understand that theory of large numbers to really understand why this is possible – don’t just discount the improbable because it seems confusing – if you spend five minutes on your *own* probability of existing (given that ALL of your ancestors had to live to adulthood, find a fertile mate, and combine their DNA at the *exact* right time for that combination to result in you instead of a different combination it’s pretty incredible, but true nonetheless)

    How did the eye form?

    >> Gradually from less functional forms. This has been proven.

    How did the Grand Canyon form?

    >> Erosion. See Earth Science 101.
    If call yourself an atheist in regards to God, then do you call yourself an atheist in regards to Santa and Bigfoot?

    >> Well, they’re not gods, so not really atheist there…”adult” is probably the more accurate term. But stop for a moment to consider that you too are an atheist with regard to Zeus, Ra, Poseidon, Shiva, and thousands of other gods, no?

    How did everything come from nothing?

    >> Science is working on this…it’s rather a, well, big question, but progress is being made. In the meantime, take a few moments to consider who made your version of God? And who made whatever made his maker, etc.? Everything has to come from somewhere/something, though to throw a god into the equation just makes us quit seeking true answers.

    If evolution is true, how come we never see frogs turn into birds?

    >> Again, you misunderstand how evolution works…it is indeed possible that some species that we recognize as a frog today could – many, many, MANY millions of years from now – come to resemble an animal that our distant relatives would classify as a bird, however it would take massive and quite probably impossible mutations to make that change.

    Have you heard of the Shroud of Turin?

    >> Yes. Have you heard of the radiometric dating they’ve done of the fabric which concludes it almost certainly an early 2nd millennium fabrication?

    >Can you explain what happens when we die?
    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Can+you+explain+what+happens+when+we+die%3F

    Same thing that happens to you before you were born, Your conciousness stops.

    >If we came from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys living today?
    Humans are actually more closely related to chimpanzees and other apes, but DNA evidence again shows that we didn’t evolve from them. Chimps and humans share between 98 to 99% of DNA suggesting that we shared a common ancestor around 6 million years ago.

    >Is it okay to commit murders, rape, homosexuality, going to stripbars, looking at pornography, and other forms of rebellion if you think there is no God to guide you?
    It’s not ok to commit murder and rape, that’s why there are laws preventing such actions. You’re a fool for singling out homosexuality as a form of rebellion, by your definition, cutting your hair, wearing blended fabrics for clothes are also forms of rebelion. Going to stripbars, looking a pornography are personal choices. Your statment makes abotu as much sence as asking someone to go to the store and pick up some fruit, handing them a list and saying ‘canned corn, canned beets, hamburger patties, an apple and an orange’.

    Also, how many rapes / murders and other general atrocities were carried out in the name of God rudding the historical time period known as the Crusades?

    >How can you explain the way a banana fits the palm of the hand?
    You understand that the ‘banana’ as you know it is a genetic mutation that has been grown by man right? Also, if ‘God’ didn’t want me to masterbate why does my dick fit in my hand so well?

    >If Fox News is a dishonest channel, then why are the reporters such as Bill O’Reilly true Christians?
    All major American media outlets are biased. If you want true news it’s best to search sources such as the BBC. Also this question is rediculious. It’s like saying “If McDonalds is bad for you, then why do kids like Ronald McDonald?”.

    >Did you know that there are biblical records of dinosaurs that were witnessed by men?
    Did you know that the answer to all life’s questions is 42?

    >How did pond scum turn into us?
    You can be pond scum if you want, but if you’re referring to the concept that humans evloved from one celled organisms such as the theory of evolution points out I hope you have some time to

    >How did the eye form?
    Over millions of years. Pretty intresting video could be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p005lnm7

    >How did the Grand Canyon form?
    Erosion from wind and the Colorado River. If you would have paid attention in school, or have visited the Grand Canyon, you would have found this out. Once again a simple google search would have answered that question.

    >If call yourself an atheist in regards to God, then do you call yourself an atheist in regards to Santa and Bigfoot?
    Did you know there exist more evidence for Bigfoot existing than god? We actually have footprints and hair samples to prove that he may exist. Cryptozoology, you should look into it.

    >How did everything come from nothing?
    I assume you’re referring to the theory of the Big Bang. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Big+Bang

    >If evolution is true, how come we never see frogs turn into birds?
    If the bible is true, how come God smites children in Africa with Aids at birth?

    >Have you heard of the Shroud of Turin?
    Yes, have you heard of Darth Vader?

    I have a question for you, when in this image does blue stop being blue and become red?

  9. andy says:

    too late, it’s already on reddit…

  10. Great questions. Let’s answer them.
     
    What happens when you die? – Our bodily functions, including brain function and thereby consciousness, cease. Therefore, the essence of what was previously known as “you” ceases to exist. The convenient thing about promising an afterlife is that no one can come back to say you’re wrong. If you want to talk about NDEs (near death experiences), they are an understood phenomenon that can reproduced scientifically in a lab without risk to the patient by simulating a similar situation, e.g., stimulating certain parts of the brain. It’s thought to be the brain’s way of comforting a dying person and the experience is linked to the beliefs and culture held by the person dying. If any particular NDE was universal, it could be used as an argument for one of the thousands of earth’s religions to be true, but that’s not the case. Muslims are not greeted by Saint Peter and Jesus. Hindus do not receive virgins. If Jesus appeared to everyone in NDEs, even if they’d never heard of him, that would be compelling. It’s not the case. There is zero evidence for life beyond death. It would be best if people accepted their own mortality instead of fighting to deny it and value the one true life we know we have. Life is precious. We should treat it that way.
     
    Why are there still monkeys – Because we didn’t evolve from monkeys; monkeys and we evolved from a common ancestor. Educate yourself on evolution. That’s like asking if you and your cousin have a common ancestor—your grandparents—why is your cousin still there? No one on earth evolved from monkeys.
     
    Is it okay to murder (no), rape (no), be gay (yes), go to strip bars (sure), porn it up (sure)? – My moral guidance is internal, not forced on me. It’s mostly based on the Golden Rule and advancement of the human race. If your religion is the only thing keeping you from murdering and raping, that says a lot more about you than it does about me. Funny how rape wasn’t important enough to get into the ten commandments. God couldn’t make room by editing out the ones concerning his petty need to be worshiped exclusively.
     
    Banana fits in hand – Actually, you’re right. Bananas were intelligently designed… by humans. Natural selection could have just as easily played a part, but in this case, it was artificial selection, also known as forced evolution… you know, because evolution is a real thing that actually works. The banana argument makes no sense, anyway. My dick fits perfectly in the palm of my hand. Does that imply god wants me to masturbate? Pineapples don’t fit into the palm of my hand. Does god hate pineapples?
     
    Fox News is dishonest – You assume Christianity means never lying. That’s wrong.
     
    Dinosaurs witnessed by men – No there weren’t, you just read them that way. Vague texts can be interpreted however you like. Besides, if you consider something “proof” just because someone wrote it, fantastic. Batman is real. Unicorns were in The Bible. Where are they now?
     
    There was a “deleted scene” in The Bible that refereed to Jesus being a dragon tamer. That’s too cool to be left on the editing room floor, so I think they left it out because of the parts where Jesus wantonly kills other children because he’s being all angsty over his superpowers, and with great power comes great responsibility.
     
    Some people are going to seriously WTF over that paragraph, but it’s true. Google “New Testament Apocrypha,” specifically The Gospel of Pseudo-Matthew, Chapter 18, Infancy Gospel of Thomas 3:2-3, Infancy Gospel of Thomas 4:1, and Infancy Gospel of Thomas 5:1
     
     
    Pond scum – We didn’t evolve from “pond scum.” Again, read up on evolution in actual science books instead of listening to what your Sunday school teacher says. I don’t learn about church in science class, so don’t assume it makes sense to learn about science in church. It’s not my job to explain the complexities of micro and macro evolution and how the entire field of biology revolves around it. Your ignorance is your problem, not mine.
     
    I won’t smack you with the irony that you’re aghast at the idea of evolving from primordial ooze, but men formed from dirt and a rib woman makes total sense.
     
    Eye form – Evolution. Obviously another attempt at intelligent design, but probably the worst example. The eye is severely flawed. Look around. See how many people are wearing glasses, wear corrective lenses, or require LASIK? Those things are all science fixing “god’s” fuck ups. Even at their best, the eye is substandard compared to what we’ve created technologically, and even to other species of animal.
     
    Grand Canyon form – Geological processes, namely erosion from the Colorado River.
     
    Atheist for Santa/bigfoot – Let’s break this down nice and easy:
     
    the·ism
    noun /ˈTHēˌizəm/ 
    1. Belief in the existence of a god or gods, esp. belief in one god as creator of the universe, intervening in it and sustaining a personal relation to his creatures
     
    The prefix “a” means “not” or “without,” therefore “atheism” is “not” or “without” belief in the existence of a god or gods. It’s also not my word or one I made up. I feel no more need to be labeled an atheist than I do a non-believer in Santa or Big Foot. Atheism is the default position into which we are all born. A child is not born Christian or any other religion, they are indoctrinated or, more rarely, embrace a religion later in life. The enveloping term is “skeptic,” one who does not believe without evidence. Belief without evidence is called “faith.” Belief based on hearsay is not a virtue.
     
    Everything from nothing – If this is a reference to the big bang theory, it doesn’t state that everything came from nothing: The Bible does. Where did God come from? Answer that question any way you like; it can be applied to the universe too. The difference is, the universe is provably here. God is not.
     
    Frogs into birds – Again, you have massive ignorance to the subject of evolution if you think that makes sense or is a reasonable question. Gliding flight has evolved independently among 3,400 species of frogs, though… so that’s pretty cool.
     
    Shroud of Turin – Yes, and it’s been debunked thoroughly as a hoax.
     
    Thanks for playing.

    The questions you have posted are very bazaar. If you want to be able to make a good argument, you need to have thought-provoking questions AND answers that will spark quality conversation. Your questions you provided are not clever, it makes you sound rather ignorant if you were to say this to an atheist. You should try asking them what they believe and why, giving them your honest interest. Build a relationship with them and get to know what they believe or don’t believe and why. Maybe that will give them a chance to hear what you believe if you present it in an intelligent way instead of trying to make them look like idiots with your “clever” questions.

  12. Can you explain what happens when we die?
    Yes. The forces that keep you alive cease, and you become an inanimate object without a consciousness. That object is typically buried or burned, depending on the traditions of the deceased, and decomposition starts. If anything else happens, no one has any proof of it.

    If we came from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys living today?
    We did not come from monkeys. Monkeys and humans have a common ancestor millions of years ago.

    Is it okay to commit murders, rape, homosexuality, going to stripbars, looking at pornography, and other forms of rebellion if you think there is no God to guide you?
    Each person ultimately determines their own morality, but in the vast majority of modern societies, things that harm other people like murder and rape are illegal. Things that do not harm other people like homosexuality and viewing porn or strip shows are generally not illegal, and should not be. However, your use of “rebellion” is silly in this context – you can’t “rebel” against something that you do not believe exists. Do you “rebel” against Allah when you do not kneel to Mecca every day?

    How can you explain the way a banana fits in the palm of the hand?
    This is nearly too stupid to comprehend, but I’ll humor you. Since a watermelon doesn’t fit in the palm of your hand, was it created by Satan? Why won’t it fit in your hand?

    If Fox News is a dishonest channel, then why are the reporters such as Bill O’Reilly true Christians?
    So your view is that no one who calls themselves a Christian can lie? How would you respond to obvious examples to the contrary, such as when a lifelong pastor is caught lying about cheating on his wife? Everyone lies. Some just don’t get caught publicly.

    Did you know that there are biblical records of dinosaurs that were witnessed by man?
    Did you know that there are written records of unicorns, warlocks, and other mythical beasts that were witnessed by man? That doesn’t make it true. It just makes the writer either a) a writer of fiction, b) dishonest, or c) a user of some really awesome psychotropic drugs.

    How did pond scum turn into us?
    I think you’re trying to refer to abiogenesis. Check this out for some cool details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiogenesis

    How did the eye form?
    Wikipedia, as always, has the answer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution_of_the_eye

    How did the Grand Canyon form?
    Pretty simply. Have you ever been to the beach and taken a pail of water and poured it out on a pile of sand? And some of the sand moves away so there is a little trench? Just like that, over millions of years.

    If you call yourself an atheist in regards to God, then do you call yourself an atheist in regards to Santa and Bigfoot?
    This question makes no sense. If you’re asking whether the word atheist can apply to disbelief in anything, then no. Atheist, by definition, is “a” “theist,” meaning not believing in a god or gods. Bigfoot and Santa are not typically regarded as gods. However, the average atheist would not believe in Bigfoot or Santa either, as there is no real evidence to show they exist. In either case, I don’t understand your point.

    How did everything come from nothing?
    It was not nothing, in the sense that you understand it, it was an extremely hot and extremely dense cluster of matter. Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Bang for details on how scientists believe the Big Bang happened.

    If evolution is true, how come we never see frogs turn into birds?
    If you wait about a billion years, you might see that happen. Evolution doesn’t happen instantaneously as you watch a frog for 10 seconds. It happens over millions and billions of years, as better traits are naturally selected. That said, you can see it live, in real time, by going to Walgreens. Ask for a flu shot. If the flu did not change from year to year, there would only be a need for a single shot once in your life. But it changes – the flu virus over time develops resistance to medication, and therefore evolves.

    Have you heard of the Shroud of Turin?
    Yes. What’s your point? There are tons of supposedly real relics from every possible religion on earth. There are some massive pyramids in the middle of the desert in Egypt that were built due to the Egyptian gods. Does that make their gods real, and better than yours since their relics are bigger and better preserved?

    Yours in disbelief,
    Nathan

  13. Oh, and weerd0 above is correct. The banana, as you have experienced it, did not exist until humans created it. It’s really fascinating. Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banana#Historical_cultivation for more.

  14. Bill says:

    You two will burn in Hell with the rest of the idolators, heathens and non-believers. God is very real and He does not like to be mocked. As for evolution, the fossil record simply does not support it. No one kind of animal ever turned into another.

    STILL NO ONE HAS ANSWERED BILL’S QUESTIONS!!! Where does the sun go each night? Why does the tide come in and out like clockwork??? YOU CAN’T EXPLAIN THAT!!!

    • thatcatkatie says:

      The tide is a direct affect of the gravitational pull of the moon and its cycles, it has bene thoroughly studied and if you want to find the real proof and evidence, it’s out there. I should absolutely NOT have to explain the sun and the solar system, mostly elementary school students understand how that works.

    • Rob says:

      Right I know this is a troll but cant help but answer. You are right.. No one kind of animal ever turned into another. But that’s not what evolution is about. a quick google can explain it to you. Are you kidding about the sun?? The Earth rotates and moves around the Sun, When it rotates if where you live is facing the Sun it’s daytime, If not it’s Night time.. Why do you think it’s daytime here while Night in Australia? Also FYI Telling me I’ll burn in Hell is like me telling you Santa is not coming this Christmas.. Or do you believe that fairytale too??

    • Yaqubjalal1234 says:

      God will kill you Christian ya homar

  15. thatcatkatie says:

    When we die, we die. A series of chemical reactions takes place and the energy from our bodies goes elsewhere. Now whether or not our consciousness survives, although I don’t believe it does because I cannot logically come to that conclusion, I do remember very vaguely reading something about quantum theory (this hasn’t been adequately tested nor has there been much evidence to support it) that would suggest our subjective experience may continue. While I’d love to believe that something like heaven exists and that I get to go off happily in eternity, it doesn’t make sense to me.

    We didn’t come from any type of ape that would still exist today, we came from a species that already existed millions of years ago, and evolved from it. The type of ape you’re referring to is a chimpanzee, which doesn’t come from the exact same evolutionary line that we do. Our last common ancestor with any of the existing apes was something like 6 million years ago (I think, I’ve seen a few estimations), and then the mutations that resulted differed and the resulting organisms were different from each other, and each one led to its own resulting evolutionary train which eventually led to the creatures we are today. The fact that we evolved to the point of intelligence only means that we evolved under the right set of circumstances, whereas when our common ancestry split off and evolved differently, they did it under a separate set of circumstances, leading to different mutations than ours.
    If you’ve ever read my blog you already know the answer to this. But religion and morality aren’t synonymous, you can be perfectly ethical and moral without religion. None of us needs a holy book to know the difference between what’s wrong or right, but rather pathetically without the incentive of heaven and hell some people would just do as they please. That seems pretty self-serving to me, to only do good and live the way you think you should in order to get what you want, which in this case would be an eternity in heaven. I try to be a good person because I believe in the potential of humanity, and I know that this life may very well be all I ever have, so I don’t intend to waste it by making life harder for others or making the world worse. I want my life to be good, and by extension other people’s lives as well. I think our subjective experience is beautiful in that it’s possible at all, so I want the world to be beautiful, too. Also, I’m really not cool with you throwing homosexuality in there as if two people loving each other is some awful thing.
    A lot of things fit in the palm of your hand. I’m not sure if I’m missing some biblical reference here, honestly I don’t get it. It’s a choice to believe everything is God’s work instead of accepting that coincidences happen sometimes. How do YOU explain all the innocent people all over the world dying from diseases like HIV that could be prevented by condoms that your religion condemns? Not to mention other awful atrocities.
    I have NO idea where you pulled this from, but there is an actual court case in which FOX was allowed the right to lie to its viewers. If you don’t believe me, look it up. How this has anything to do in regard to one of its anchors being what you would call a good christian, I have no idea. Even if he is what you say he is, we’re all just human, and we all sin and are unholy according to your own beliefs, so there’s no way you can hold him up on a pedestal like that. But if a good christian is someone who lies, skews stories, misleads mass amounts of people knowingly, and is a huge hypocrite, then yeah, he’s a great christian. This doesn’t say much for your religion’s following though, if this is the standard by which you’re judging people.
    Ok, great. Then please explain to me how carbon dating of fossils says otherwise (it’s important that you first understand how carbon dating works, so if you don’t, don’t even bother). My other problem with that is that it’s biblical evidence – meaning the only evidence you have is hearsay and some words written down somewhere. You have no collected evidence to support this, whereas science does. I could say plenty more, but I shouldn’t have to – don’t discredit real science just because you don’t understand it or don’t even try to.
    To explain this, you would have to understand evolution, which clearly you do not which is clearly demonstrated by the first question you asked. Also it wasn’t “pond scum” as you chose to describe it. It’s not quite so simple.
    Also very explainable through evolution, I’ve heard this asked and answered before, although honestly I don’t want to try to use google search to find the answer. I don’t know personally how to explain this to someone, but again, you’d have to understand evolution first. I’m sure if you looked for the answers you could find them, but I don’t feel like spoon-feeding it to whatever idiot wrote these questions. Again, it’s not any atheist’s fault that you refuse to even try to understand science and evolutionary processes.
    The grand canyon was formed over millions of years of shifting tectonic plates and erosion from water.
    No, because, in case you don’t know what the root words mean here, I don’t believe in a God. Santa and Bigfoot have nothing to do with God, and it’s pretty widely acknowledged they aren’t real. How can you compare the two things? I have no idea. People don’t worship Santa, they don’t think he created the universe, they don’t kill in his name. Well, at least not that I know of.
    Further proof you don’t understand science, have you heard of The Big Bang? It wasn’t just everything from nothing. Again, it’s not my fault you don’t get it or don’t want to try to get it. And frankly, your theory of creationism would state the same exact thing that you’re asking me.
    IT’S NOT MY FAULT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND EVOLUTION.
    Yes, I have heard of it. Do you know something? Absolutely no conclusion has been reached about it, and nothing has been proven about it. So what about it? And frankly, scientists have come up with more plausible explanations for the image on it than what theologians desperately grasp at to try to find one piece of evidence for their cause. Even if they can prove who the image is of and how it was left on the cloth, it doesn’t prove anything about God.

    Not yours,
    In the real world

    Well, let’s have some fun.

    Can you explain what happens when we die? Simple. Our bodily functions shut down slowly and we become frail and old. Eventually our body fails and we die. Simple.

    If we came from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys living today? Really, what a stupid question. If there are Christians and Atheists and evolution has been proven true, why are there still Christians living today?

    Is it okay to commit murders, rape, homosexuality, going to stripbars, looking at pornography, and other forms of rebellion if you think there is no God to guide you? There are laws, dumbass. People who break them are deranged, daring or just plain bored. We live under the regulations of a government, not the regulations of your imaginary friend.

    How can you explain the way a banana fits the palm of the hand? If God doesn’t want us to masturbate, how can you explain the way my dick fits in the palm of my hand?

    If Fox News is a dishonest channel, then why are the reporters such as Bill O’Reilly true Christians? Because true Christians are dishonest.

    Did you know that there are biblical records of dinosaurs that were witnessed by men? No biblical references obviously, but pleeeeeenty of carbon dating results, archaeology expeditions and bones on display in museums.

    How did pond scum turn into us? Evolution, motherfucker.

    How did the eye form? Evolution, motherfucker, of the eye. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution_of_the_eye

    How did the Grand Canyon form? 40 million years of erosion. Of 1.4 billion year old ROCKS. And you think your world is only a mere 4000 years old…

    If call yourself an atheist in regards to God, then do you call yourself an atheist in regards to Santa and Bigfoot? God and Santa are mythological creatures. Bigfoot is a legend, but hasn’t been proven untrue just yet.

    How did everything come from nothing? Big. Fucking. Bang. Temperature heats up to infinity, Bang causes formation of universe, galaxies, stars, shit.

    If evolution is true, how come we never see frogs turn into birds? If common sense is true, how come we never see Christian realise that their belief in a non-existant prophet is silly and become Atheist?

    Have you heard of the Shroud of Turin? I actually have! I heard about it…when it was proven FAKE, fucker! 😀 http://phys.org/news4652.html

    And there you have it. Your beliefs are bad and you should feel bad.

    – A wise man.

      Look, the only way anyone is ever going to “accept Jesus and God” is if you come forward and defend yourself. All I’ve seen is you condemning people to Hell. That is not what God/Jesus wanted for his followers. Christian: Little Christ.
      Maybe you should start acting like him?

      • Trololo says:

        Okay, I’ll act like Christ for you.

        Two people on Earth: One woman and one man. Better make sure they only bore sons so I can watch some hot incest.

        Hmm, this world is fucked up, I’ll flood it and kill everyone!

        Yeah, if your son is bad, kill him!

        They can’t break the rules, but I can!

        Hey, I’ll impregnate this married woman with by semen! Fuck Joseph!

        Hey everyone, if you’ve done one thing wrong, you can get fucked and get the Devil’s dick in your ass!

        I should cast a demon into some guy so I can make him write a book about me and troll future Christians!

  18. […] why are there still monkeys?) In case you think I’m making that up there are some examples here and here. A downright offensive one here and a parody here . I have paraphrased the questions to […]

  19. Dvd Bach says:

    “Can you explain what happens when we die?”
    Sure. Consciousness ends and the body decomposes.

    “If we came from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys living today?”
    If most Americans are descended for Europeans, why are there still Europeans? The question is build on the false premise; the theory of evolution holds that we have a common ancestor with monkey.

    “Is it okay to commit murders, rape, homosexuality, going to stripbars, looking at pornography, and other forms of rebellion if you think there is no God to guide you?”
    No, no, yes, yes and yes.
    The first two involve harming others and are thus morally wrong; this is not true of the last three.

    “How can you explain the way a banana fits the palm of the hand?”
    Because of intelligent design… by humans. We’ve been selectively breeding bananas for thousands of years; the kind you buy in grocery stores don’t occur naturally.

    “If Fox News is a dishonest channel, then why are the reporters such as Bill O’Reilly true Christians?”
    Because Christianity and dishonesty are not mutually exclusive.

    “Did you know that there are biblical records of dinosaurs that were witnessed by men?”
    So? Many of the Bible’s factual claims have been refuted, so there’s no reason to believe that’s accurate.

    “How did pond scum turn into us?”
    I think you’re referring to evolution, so that’s my answer.

    “How did the eye form?”
    It evolved, just like all complex biological systems.

    “How did the Grand Canyon form?”
    Eons of erosion.

    “If call yourself an atheist in regards to God, then do you call yourself an atheist in regards to Santa and Bigfoot?”
    We don’t need a term for that, because no one seriously believes those things exist. If there were no religion, we wouldn’t need a term for atheism either.

    “How did everything come from nothing?”
    Unsupported premise; there’s no reason to believe it did.

    “If evolution is true, how come we never see frogs turn into birds?”
    Because that would be impossible according to everything we know about evolution.

    “Have you heard of the Shroud of Turin?”
    Yep.

  20. […] example in particular caught my attention.  I’m not sure where this list originated (I found it here), but its “cleverness” is, shall we say, […]

  21. Can you explain what happens when we die?
    Neither can you.

    If we came from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys living today?
    Evolutionists believe we share a common ancestor with monkeys.

    Is it okay to commit murders, rape, homosexuality, going to stripbars, looking at pornography, and other forms of rebellion if you think there is no God to guide you?
    No.

    How can you explain the way a banana fits the palm of the hand?
    It was created that way…by us.

    If Fox News is a dishonest channel, then why are the reporters such as Bill O’Reilly true Christians?
    You’ve stated on your blog that Bill O’Reilly is not a true Christian. Remember?

    Did you know that there are biblical records of dinosaurs that were witnessed by men?
    No. There are not.

    How did pond scum turn into us?
    Oh brother.

    How did the eye form?
    Oh brother.

    How did the Grand Canyon form?
    Oh brother.

    If call yourself an atheist in regards to God, then do you call yourself an atheist in regards to Santa and Bigfoot?
    I’m not an atheist. I am an Anglican.

    How did everything come from nothing?
    Oh brother.

    If evolution is true, how come we never see frogs turn into birds?
    Oh brother.

    Have you heard of the Shroud of Turin?
    Oh brother.
