Thoughts on this quote - athesim.

"Atheism: the belief, wait it's a belief? Like a *gasp* faith? No, wait, I can't believe, because I'm just a mass of goo that thinks I have consciousness. Dang it, I can't think that either. That can't be good. What do I mean by "good?" Why do I think anything is good or evil? Have I really thought about this or do I just say it because I think "smart people" should? Oh well, it doesn't matter... yet."

  • Sounds like something someone who dislikes atheists came up with to show what they think atheists think, but they merely come off sounding uneducated so it's clear a real atheist wouldn't have said it.......Mass of goo? WTF is that? It's either a reference to the common gene pool which is clearly grossly misunderstood by the speaker, or the person is not aware of the spinal column possessed by the human species in addition to it's muscle system.

  • sounds like a quote from someone who is seriously putting down atheism. And someone who TRULY has no TRUE concept of what atheism is.

    I've VERY offended by it because it has NOTHING to do with atheism.. atheism.. by definition is just the lack of belief in a higher power or God. That's it. It doesn't mean they don't have beliefs in anything. Or theories.. etc. They could believe in an after life and still be atheist. You don't need a God, to have faith, or beliefs.. for instance, when you marry, you do it on the faith in your husband to love you, for him not the cheat, etc. When you accept theories, that's a belief, because theories AREN'T fact, they are simply theories. to take that theory to heart you have to belief in it.
    As far as the mass of goo, that's just stupid! OBVIOUSLY it's a fact that we have bones.. so being a big mass of goo is just plain stupid on the quoters part.

  • It sounds like a quote given by a person who can't just accept that different people have different beliefs

  • I think its a stupid quote. I wonder what the real meaning behind this post is? Trying to stir some crap up? I find it real  funny how christians want their beliefs respected then post this garbage.

  • "@Kristi ... meh, I guess that makes up for all the times that you've spelled God with a little a "g." "

    oh come on, how stupid is that??? I can name countless reasons why people use a small "g" rather than a big "G"..
