How to destroy any argument for God

How to destroy any argument for God
1.  Context is key.  Take your opponent's words out of context, and substitute your own.  Always accuse your opponent of taking your own words out of context.

2.  Make up your own science.  stay away from google if at all possible. make it sound like you are an expert.

3.  Insist that the Bible is a scientific guide, not a map to God one, then claim the opposite (it's especially effective if you can do this in the same breath).

4.  Claim that Hitler was an Christian, then act like it matters.

5.  Redefine common words in ways that support your argument.  Good examples include 'morality', 'supernatural', 'integrity', 'theory', and 'God'.  Be creative!

6.  Introduce topics that have nothing to do with the argument, then act as if you've scored a point.  For instance, if the topic is cosmology, say, 'But what about Joseph Stalin?' then sit back and look smug.

7.  Accuse your opponent of taking positions they haven't.  A good example might be if, when your opponent answers your questions on the efficacy of prayer, accusing him of not understanding what prayer is. After all who is he (the religious) to tell you (anti religious) who and what prayer is.

8.  Pretend that the Bible is malleable. It can be as literal or as allegorical as you need it to be at any given moment. Just keep playing stupid and unable to discern a book of prayer from a book of prophesy from what is considered a book of history.

9.  Make false and irrelevant claims about famous scientists.  Good ones to use are Newton, Einstein, and Darwin.  You opponent will waste valuable time refuting these claims and will have less time to refute the claims you're scared he'll get round to.

10.  If none of the above works, you can always stick your fingers in your ears, and go after any personal flaws or perceived weakness you like as you are a better person and can say any number of nasty and or bigoted things you like t a christian. what's more you can get 15 to 20 more people to join the cause. Because who in their right mind would stand up just for an idea?

How to make a terrible argument for god, courtesy of Drich:

1. Claim that the Bible is true without a shred of evidence.

2. Assume your personal experiences should be sufficient to convince other people.

3. Fail to understand how science works on a fundamental level.

4. Repeat 1, 2, and 3 ad nauseam.

Hitler was a catholic. The people who carried out the holocaust were overwhelmingly catholic, and in the Slavic region the Ustashe who ran concentration camps mainly did it for christianity.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ustashe

Quote:Those considered "undesirables" were subjected to mass murder.[31] These principles called for the creation of a new economic system that would be neither capitalist nor communist[9] and which emphasized the importance of the Roman Catholic Church and the patriarchial family as means to maintain social order and morality.[9] (The name given by modern historian to this particular aspect of Ustaše ideology varies; "national Catholicism",[32] "political Catholicism" and "Catholic Croatism"[33] have been proposed among others.) In power, the Ustaše banned contraception and tightened laws against blasphemy.

Quote:5.  Redefine common words in ways that support your argument.  Good examples include 'morality', 'supernatural', 'integrity', 'theory', and 'God'.  Be creative!

Define god. I have never seen a good definition oh and what the hell is supernatural supposed to be?

Quote:8.  Pretend that the Bible is malleable. It can be as literal or as allegorical as you need it to be at any given moment.

The bible has been used as science and allegory by theists. I fail to see your point.

Quote: Just keep playing stupid and unable to discern a book of prayer from a book of prophesy from what is considered a book of history.

How do you tell what bit is supposed to be what?

Quote:9.  Make false and irrelevant claims about famous scientists.  Good ones to use are Newton, Einstein, and Darwin.  You opponent will waste valuable time refuting these claims and will have less time to refute the claims you're scared he'll get round to.

I have no idea what you mean by this. The only people who seem to take Darwin and Einstein out of context are theists and Newton was a product of his age so a bit scientist and a bit cultist loon.

Quote:10.  If none of the above works, you can always stick your fingers in your ears, and go after any personal flaws or perceived weakness you like as you are a better person and can say any number of nasty and or bigoted things you like t a christian. what's more you can get 15 to 20 more people to join the cause.

Christians tend to be the most bigoted people, they go out of their way to find new groups to be repulsed by.



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.

11. Laugh hysterically as Bible-based Christians offer up stupid tales of supernatural healing from fake AIDS, encounters with mystical Negroes/hitchhikers who can see the future, and visiting Hell in their dreams as "proof" of God's existence. Big Grin


ETA: On a side note, I've noticed that there doesn't appear to be many obvious misspellings in the OP. Actually, I've only noticed one forgotten letter so far.
There's notable improvement in your punctuation and sentence structure as well.

So, what'd you do, boy? Finally decide to get your Spell Check on?

Did you learn some tips from a specialist...or are you just slowing down and focusing more?

Seriously, what gives? Inquiring minds want to know!

Let a fool like Derptch make a thread and ramble . One look at his nonesense would be enough to convince most intelligent people theisms got nothing .
