April fools’ day


Mike Ritt in his very limited knowledge thinks he is justified in renaming April fools Atheist day for the simple reason a book of not so good stories has in one of its many pages that the fool has said in his heart there is no god. And I readily admit that would be a fool. However, anyone who can say it loudly, with good reason, cannot by any standard of measure be called a fool. In this contest, Mike is the bigger fool.

First, Mike, argues poorly when he writes

Ironically, this would give the person claiming that there is no God, some of the very characteristics of God.

for all the atheist need to say in response is if the god is omnipresent but is not found in any one given place, then either this god doesn’t exist or the claim that it is omnipresent is a false attribution and should be dropped.

Mike, who thinks atheists are fools, tells us to know whether a god exists, he turns to the bible. A claim, as ridiculous as claiming the evidence for Batman is in DC comic. It is a bad argument.

The claim. made in Romans 9:20 that nature is divine can only be mouthed by an idiot. On the contrary, we must almost want to agree with Aristotle that nature is evil not divine. We will go beyond him and say, we being part of nature, albeit, conscious part of a whole, nature just is. Good or bad is a matter of judgement that comes only through knowledge.

And for Mike to display as his poster boy, Paul the fraud, we can only conclude he is of very limited intelligence and it is for people like him that April fools’ exist.

    He can’t do that – I’ve already renamed it George W. Bush Day!

    As a former Christian, I did look at the beauty of the world and universe and felt it showed a god. But at times, I did wonder, why did God make insects and animals eat each other. Wouldn’t being vegetarian be more kind and loving. I would stop thinking about those things because I was afraid to upset god. It wasn’t until I felt it was ok to question God when I really saw the earth and the universe are hostile towards life. So why would a god make the world and universe hostile towards the only life forms in the universe?

  7. I left a comment over there that is awaiting moderation. I’m reprinting it here in case it doesn’t survive:

    “[‘]OK…the official designation might be April fool’s day, but I think that the two names are interchangeable, and I believe that I have biblical precedence for believing so.[‘]

    [‘]If you read my article carefully, you will see that I never call anyone a fool, I only reported what God declared in the Bible.[‘]

    Here’s some helpful advice: if you’re going to take the position that it’s reasonable to believe in things without credible evidence, own up to it. Both of the above quotes were taken verbatim from your post and your comments. Not owning up to your beliefs just makes you look petty.”

  9. I found it telling when he wrote in a comment:
    “I have no authority to do that. I am reporting what God said because, as our creator, he has ultimate authority over us.”

    Could he be any more predictable? — Using the god excuse to do and say what ever he wants. A fraud if ever I saw one.

        Abraham was prepared to kill his son, simply because god told him. Luckily, that god changed his mind just-in-time, reminding Abraham it was April 1st.
        A few thousand years later, this god, on second thoughts (thoughts??),willingly sacrified his (only) son. For reasons that only believers accept gratefully and in awe. Really awesome.-

          Really awesome I agree.
          He played a joke on Abraham and became busy when it was his son or was it because there were so many people involved and he wanted to keep his name as being consistent
