simonejester: "sodomy non sapiens = buggered if I know" ([text] sodomy non sapiens)
Some real gems from [info]antitheism ...

[info]vijeno with the OP:

I have often heard the stance that god is "greater than reason", so even if the claim of god's existence is unfalsifiable and therefore unscientific, everyone can happily believe whatever. After all, Ockam's razor only applies in science, so why bother...

Are there any refutations to this claim? Pointers, perhaps...?

Thanks.

Some of the *awesome* replies...

  • [info]bill_sheehan : The person making that very silly statement doesn't really believe what he's saying, and you can prove it by saying, "God says to give me all your money."

    What do you mean, no he didn't? How do you know? Surely you're not relying on your fallible human reason...


  • [info]rdmiller3 : If God is greater than reason, then he could certainly manage to make sense if he wanted to.

    Apparently, God doesn't want reasonable people to believe in him.


  • [info]westonlockley : You'll just have to believe because bible bible bile. Or get out of my country flag flag flag.


  • [info]eonen : Refutations?

    How about, "Prove it"?

    Or possibly, "What's the difference between believing in god against reason and just making up a god with your imagination?"


And my personal favorite...

[info]j_brisby : If God is greater than reason, then kumquats sing greener porn tractor James Dean.

and the reply from the OP...

[info]vijeno : Your wrong. Kumquats definitely wear thongs as joyous as lighted blue mineral water, though.

Hi, I'm going door to door educating Christians about evolution

We have charts & graphs to back us up so fuck off

Imagine how much of a stimulus package it would be if rich people paid taxes

P.S. Have I mentioned my crochet blog, The Experimental Hooker? And do you think I should change the name before anyone else sees it? :P

Someone at [community profile] ontd_political linked to this ontd_p entry and I think this part is very quotable:

The message began ominously enough, with words no one really likes to hear directed their way.

"With all due respect," it read.

As a writer I am painfully aware of the imprecision of language. Meaning is not always perfectly--and often not at all--communicated by the words we choose to represent our thoughts. But if there's one thing I've learned in the course of 42 years it is this: whenever someone addresses you by saying, "with all due respect," you can rest assured they think you are due very little of it. And furthermore, in what follows they intend to deliver to you exactly that amount of this precious commodity to which they believe you are entitled.
