First flaws

People are constantly trying o tell other people what to do, and justify it by saying a god told them to via a generations-old book written by a bunch of peasants. And they don't even bother to justify it.
So, I'm going to point out various flaws in their arguments in this blog.
First up: People keep saying "something can't come from nothing" therefore atheists are wrong, and that automatically means that organised religion is right. This flowchart should convince any logical person of the stupidity of that argument.

The flawed argument above is an example of an argument which is used to claim that must be the correct religion (usually to do with a 2000 year old self-proclaimed messiah that supposedly gave his life for our sins, by allowing romans to crucify him), by claiming that other arguments are flawed (and ignoring the obvious flaws in said religion, which almost always have flaws).
The main other type of argument is one which attempts to justify the religion in question, by pointing out examples of how science has agreed with religion, usually ignoring disagreement along the way.
Since it's the most prominent religion in western countries in general, and the one most supported by the media, I'm going to use christianity as my scapegoat, like everyone else. Most of this applies to other religions too though, with the main exceptions being hinduism and buddhism (they don't claim to be mutually exclusive, like almost every other religions. At least buddhism doesn't).
What people seem to ignore is that [the christian] god didn't give us proof that he existed, because "without faith [he] is nothing".
For those that haven't seen/read the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy:
"I refuse to prove that I exist," says God. "For proof denies faith, and without faith, I am nothing."
"But," says Man, "the Babel Fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance.It proves you exist, and so therefore by your own arguments, you don't. QED."
"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.
"Oh, that was easy," says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself
killed on the next pedestrian crossing.

So, if anyone finds "proof" that the christian god exists (a metaphorical babelfish), then that automatically proves that the christian god doesn't exist. So, it really can't be proved scientificaly. Science 101: Don't assume anything with no evidence or basis in facts.
Of course, sites like know better, and they have the proof of their saying so, and that is clearly a scientifically valid way of showing where god is in the equasions of creation.


  1. Also, feel free to go rave about how theres lots of room in hell. It'll just show how irrational some people are.

  2. Convert to Islam and truth will be yours.
