Good fun, at what cost?

Published April 4th, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

What a great way to invest your time and I really appreciate your sense of humor. Sadly, there is a human emotion, or response called “regret.” For example, a drunk driver wakes up in a jail cell with no memory of the night before. He is walked over in hand cuffs to a “service window” and told he is being booked or vehicular man slaughter. It turns out he ran a red light, struck a SUV with a family of 5, killing 2 children under the age of 5.

The joy you receive running this web site is probably pretty big. I’m sure you love the ignorant hate mail you receive or the attention from other joy seeking worldly people.

My question to you is, do you consider yourself a good person? On the day of judgment when you’re standing in front of a Holy and righteous God, how will you fare? What kind of remorse do you think you, and others you may be leading away from God will feel when they are turn away from the gates of Heaven and cast in to the pits of Hell for not repenting for the Sin we are all guilty for? You have you ever lied, stolen or committed adultery within your heart?

I don’t honestly believe that you’re going to reply with some miracle response that says “yes, you’re right I will repent and follow Jesus.” Do yourself a favor. Do some research and really consider what you’re basing the fate and existence of your eternal soul on. If you decide to follow your current path, good luck friend. If you find yourself with even the slightest doubt of the certainty of your eternal soul then I suggest you pick up your Bible, read it and do what it says.

God Bless,

Nick

    I find it ironic that christians will keep telling us to have an ‘open mind’ and to do ‘research’ before denying the existence of God, etc.

    What’s ironic about that, is… as Dawkins would say, ‘I try to keep an open mind, but not so open that my brain falls out’, heh… and as for research, they never ‘research’ as they don’t know the meaning of the word, they think it’s just ‘searching’ which would be to look for information pertaining to the subject.
    Problem with just searching is, you’ll find yourself looking only for what confirms your beliefs… such as… if you tell a christian to do ‘research’ into things like how they date fossils… they will search for christian websites that talk about carbon dating(which is mostly just showing why it doesn’t work… which is true, but they think carbon dating is what we use to find fossils! haha… and it’s true, carbon dating cannot date fossils, as the carbon is no longer part of the fossils… however, that’s why they date the sediment the fossil was found in… yes, christians are right, you can’t carbon date fossils :D but they neglect the fact that you can radio date the sediment the fossil was found in! LOL!).
    But those sites will literally just talk about why carbon dating won’t work. Absolute Negative Evidence, An Argument from Ignorance… and yet… they think they’ve successfully done their research and proved you wrong.

    When they ask you to do research, you should really do that research honestly… so go to those christian websites that show ‘why’ God exists and etc… analyze it and judge for yourself, and to complete the research, go to some educational sites that show why God doesn’t exist, and compare your findings, the pros and cons, and how many logical fallacies you find in each category.

    Use this list of logical fallacies to show when an argument, debate, article, lecture, or etc… has gone stale.

    When a logical fallacy is used, the one who has used it should be considered wrong until they can reproduce their logic without fallacy…

    You know, its always bugged me how Christians go about deciding who is a good person and who is a bad person. I mean, a man could go around killing, raping, stealing, and all that, but be classified as a good person worthy of eternal pleasure because he announced some guy his savior. On the other hand, a person could go their whole life without commiting a single crime, never doing anything bad, but be classified as evil because he didn’t announce himself a slave. It just never really clicked for me.

    On another note, I never really got why I should apologize for doing something some Magic Man in the Sky doesn’t like, but he doesn’t have to apologize back for the things he has done that I don’t like.

    Also, the whole Magic Sky Man being perfect is horribly flawed by some very easy to see points. How can it claim to be perfect if it created? The act of creating shows a desire, an imperfection. Secondly, if Jess’ post has an relevance, the need for glory and worship shows an even bigger desire. Also, if it was perfect, then why is it that “his” creations are so horribly flawed? Shouldn’t a perfect being be able to get it right the first time? There is also the problem with his temper, which has been shown in his book. Last time anyone has checked, anger hasn’t been found to be a very good thing, another flaw. Then again, the whole “perfect” idea is just a bad one, due to perfect being subjective to the person who is considering it. One person may like tomato sauce on their spaghetti, others may not.

    This religion interests me though, could anyone give me any better details? I may be tempted to buy the book.

    Sorry for the double post. By “this religion”, I ment Pastafarianism.

    “”"I’m sure you love the ignorant hate mail you receive or the attention from other joy seeking worldly people.”"”

    I’d rather associate with worldly people than people tripping in the clouds… eventually you will fall and make a crater in the earth that us “worldy” people occupy. Such reckless endangerment.

    “”"My question to you is, do you consider yourself a good person? On the day of judgment when you’re standing in front of a Holy and righteous God, how will you fare?”"”

    Soo many problems with this statement.

    1.) Yes, I am not only good, I am quite badass. RAmen!

    2.) Your God is neither Holy, Righteous, or even real:

    No proof. I mean REAL proof, not the fucking bible.
    Crusades.
    Dark ages.
    Medieval period.
    Inquisition.
    Slaughter of countless people in the bible.
    Commands to murder people that now-days you would think twice about (least I hope you would)
    Contradictions.
    Double standards.
    Slavery, child abuse.
    Racism, sexism, homophobia, dictatorial standards.
    Negative view of everything human.
    Sloppy pseudo-science: pi = 3, flat earth, earth is center of universe, dragons, unicorns, etc…
    Non-sense BS that can’t have any interpretation because it is too retarded.
    prayer does everything, but nothing, but everything, BUT NOTHING!
    Jesus and his childish, malicious attitude (Jesus kills a fig tree because it didn’t bear fruit OUT OF SEASON, stealing colts, slaughtering someone else’s pigs for no reason, etc…)
    Jealous, homicidal, genocidal GOD.
    ETCETERA!!!!!!!

    “”"What kind of remorse do you think you, and others you may be leading away from God will feel when they are turn away from the gates of Heaven and cast in to the pits of Hell for not repenting for the Sin we are all guilty for?”"”

    No remorse whatsoever. I am leading them to salvation and the most tasty spaghetti they have ever eaten, with sauce that flows like wine and tender meatballs that are seasoned to THEIR taste – NOT what they are told to like – unlike YOUR God.

    The only sin in FSM’s eyes is not liking spaghetti.

    “”"I don’t honestly believe that you’re going to reply with some miracle response that says “yes, you’re right I will repent and follow Jesus.””"”

    That isn’t a miracle, it’s a travesty.

    “”"If you decide to follow your current path, good luck friend.”"”

    Good luck in your path with your homicidal, genocidal, sexist, hateful, jealous, FAKE God.

    “”"If you find yourself with even the slightest doubt of the certainty of your eternal soul then I suggest you pick up your Bible, read it and do what it says.”"”

    I don’t have doubt NOR a bible. I used it all for toilet paper. I smoked up much of Genesis, until I realized that the book was better for shit tickets than rolling paper.

    “”"God Bless,”"”

    No thanks. Had enough bullshit already.

      Whenever I see a bible, I offer a moment of silence to the tree that was cut down to make it…such a waste of paper.

    Umm, excuse me, but you need to get your facts straight.

    Pastafarians are not killing or hurting anyone, the entire cause was to make a religion that can’t be used as an excuse to start wars. And you also can’t prove that pastafarians steal, lie, or commit adultery more than any other religion.

    In Christianity, all those who don’t believe what you do will be tortured for the rest of eternity. Several innocent people were burned at the stake for being accused of “witchcraft”

    In Mormonism, a man may have multiple wives and rape his own daughters to impregnate them and it’s considered god’s bestowed duty to a man.

    In Catholicism, Everyone goes to hell if they don’t confess their sins every single day, being born is considered a sin, and don’t even THINK about questioning what the priest is saying. But it’s perfectly ok for him to rape a choir boy or two. Any form of sexual indulgence (pornography, masturbation, etc.) is sinful if you are not married.

    And what does the bible say we should do? Are we supposed to bow down and kiss your ass? I think not.

    Other religions hurt people a hell of a lot more than we do, how dare you compare us to them. I hope you wake up one day and learn a bit more about what you believe in.

    FUCK. YOU.

    Yes let’s all do what the Bible says. See you guys later, I’m off to go rape and kill large quantities of people…
    If we all did what the Bible says the world would still be fighiting with sharpened pieces of metal. I perfer to evolve and advance, thanks for the offer though…
