Atheists are Illogical Idiots: Wise Christian Response Video

 

Today’s response video is to the Wise Christian, a name name that might be one of the most dishonest statements that I have ever read. Within these videos you will learn that atheists are illogical, that atheists are tarded, that atheists can’t explain nothing, that atheists are like speed signs, pencils, and a whole lot more.

I don’t really know if this guy is for real or just makes videos in an effort to be as annoying as possible but in either case he is almost completely wrong in every video he makes. I hope you enjoy the following video.

Special thanks to Suris the Skeptic for pointing this guy out to me.

Weekend Tube

Weekend Tube: 02/16/18

Goooooooood evening friends! Today marks another week gone by and another edition of weekend tube. For those of you that don’t know I have my own channel now which you can find here: The Godless Iowan. I’m definitely not at the level of any of the people highlighted tonight but I am having fun and doing my own thing. So let’s get going!

#7: Rachel Oates: 3 Awesome Animals You Might Not Know Yet

I love biology, so much so that I had to take it twice in college….I was a theist back then so that might explain why I did so poorly at the time. Anyway, Rachel Oates points out some a few cute and definitely strange animals in this video. If you love animals check it out.

#6: Anti-Ordinary: Science is Racist!

This is so funny partly because the source material is just so ridiculous but also Anti-Ordinary turns the humor up to 11. Amazing!

#5: Godless Engineer: President Trump’s Tweet Debunks Global Climate Change

I love Godless Engineers reactions to comments and in this one he reacts to comments made by President Trump. Even better. This video is absolutely hilarious!

#4.) Jackson Wheat: Evolution of the Eye

One of the arguments that theists use to try and prove the existence of god is the intricacies of certain things in nature. Obviously the intricacy of the human eye is far too great to have simply evolved….wrong. Jackson Wheat does an amazing job relating how the eye evolved and it is simply fascinating.

#3: Professor Stick: Ridiculous Flat Earth Nonsense on SpaceX

Suck Muh Balls! That is all….Actually it’s not but I’ll let Professor Stick tell you all about it. Professor Stick is one of my favorites, please check him out if you haven’t already.

#2:Paulogia: Doubting Darwin Day (feat. Jackson Wheat) – (Ken) Ham & AiG News

Paulogia is joined by Jackson Wheat in an edition of Ham & AIG News. Evolution and Darwin are the topics, namely creationists denial of anything worthwhile in the teachings of Darwin and Evolution. This video is smart, I hope you will check it out.

#1: Godless Cranium: Vincent Rhodes Thinks The Bible Proves Flat Earth

Godless Cranium kicks ass in this video. The source material is hilarious, flat earth videos are always a favorite in our house and Godless Cranium does an amazing job. If this was a list simply built around Flat-Earth videos of the week, Godless Cranium would have won hands down.

Video of the Week: Godless Engineer: KC’s Corner: The History of Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, and Lent

It’s a little known secret but I have a perfect record for keeping my lent promises, For the last 34 years I have given up Lent for Lent and have never had a problem with it. That must make me super spiritual. Anyway, this video taught me a lot that I didn’t know about Catholic Traditions and was just fun to watch. I had no idea they had Drive Through Ashings…that’s amazing! Good job on this video KC!


Anyway, those are my videos of the week. As always if you like the videos please subscribe to their channel and let them know that The Godless Iowan sent you!  I hope you enjoyed these videos and if your feel I missed any great videos let me know in the comments. Life’s too short to be serious but please don’t panic!

Update to Schedule 02/12/2018

Thank you to everyone who has followed my blog. I want you all to know how much i truly appreciate you and how much enjoyment I have had bringing these articles to you on a nearly daily basis. Since I’m entering the realm of video production, I will have less time to write. I’m not going to stop writing altogether because I love it. However there will be less articles written throughout the week in order to give me more time for video and voice recording as well as all of the editing involved in getting a video put together.

So tonight I thought I would give you a layout for how these changes are going to affect the blog.

Video Production will be as follows:

1 or 2 short videos per week.
A Pentecostal Atheist Bible Study will be a Bi-Weekly video.
Satanic Sunday is now going to become a Bi-Weekly video.
(The two Bi-Weekly videos will alternate so one week I will release a Bible Study and the next week I will release a Satanic Sunday post.)

Blog Articles:

Tuesday Nights: Unmasking Doctrine
Thursday Night: Inoculation Against Indoctrination
Friday Night: Videos of The Week
Free-Thought Friday: Guest Blog when I have a submission available to post

Quick-Bits:

Just a Thought: These will be Memes that I found funny or thought-provoking.

 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the new schedule and continue following this blog. Thanks again!

Unmasking Doctrine

Unmasking Doctrine #4: Deity of Christ: Sinless Life

Good evening Heathens and Hell-Bound friends and foes alike! It’s been a great day so far and I am excited to get back into this series.  The last time we were here we discussed the virgin birth, you can find that article here, Unmasking Doctrine #3: The Deity of Christ: Virgin Birth. Tonight we will be talking about the next portion of this Fundamental “truth” the sinless life of Christ.

So the scriptures given are as follows…

jesus

Now, this may come as a shock to you, the gospels never once say that Jesus lived a sinless life. Not one single time. So how is it that this has come to be such a crucial Christian belief. This is pretty simple…

  1. If Jesus sinned then how could he be god, god doesn’t sin.
  2. We like our godhead sin free.

That’s it…that is the reasoning for Jesus supposedly living a sin free life. The only scriptures that truly support the idea of a sinfree Jesus come from the scriptures mentioned above, that’s it.

So let’s look at those two books.

Hebrews and 1 Peter by conservative accounts were written somewhere between 60-70AD. That’s 30-40 years after the life of Christ, if he ever existed. I say if he existed because I don’t see there being much evidence that an actual Jesus figure existed. It’s more likely to me that the Jesus archetype is a conglomerate of numerous spiritual leaders around that time. Tonight is not the night to go into this subject.

shrugged

Anyway 30-40 years after Jesus supposedly died we have two accounts that claim he lived a sinless life. This to me is at best simply an overblown myth or at worst a way to try to promote Christ as the figure in the godhead that most of Christianity believes him to be. Not only do I reject the idea that Christianity teaches of a sinless god, but that the idea of any human being living a sinless life is a complete and total impossibility.

Let me first explain how this might occur in the overblown fashion:

My great-grandmother has been dead for nearly 30 years. Here is what I know about her.

  • She was married at the age of 14.
  • She went to church her entire life.
  • She gave birth to my grandmother and her three sisters.
  • She lived in my hometown the majority of her life.
  • She really liked Andes mints.
  • She was a very sweet and gentle old lady.

That’s it…I can’t tell you much more about her. Am I capable of claiming that she lived a sinless life? Well, I never experienced anything from her that I could claim to be sinful and so sure, she lived a sinless life. I could claim that but I also know that she was human and there is no such thing as a human being that doesn’t have a bad day now and then.

elderly

I could have used my great-aunt as an example as well, she was perfect, sweet, loving, and just a plain good old lady. I remember she got very upset when I talked back to my mother once and made me apologize. Imagine a sweet elderly woman who gives you hard candy and pinches your cheeks, that was my great aunt.

Now imagine the shock when I found out that she was a prostitute for nearly 20 years of her life. My grandmother just mentioned it one day out of the blue and it completely warped my mind. My entire picture of this perfect and sweet old lady was dashed to pieces knowing that she blew guys for chicken and pork back in the day.  Oh, and that’s not some euphemism, she literally was a prostitute so that she could feed her family and was at times paid in chicken and pork.  I’m not bashing her, she did what she had to do, more power to her, but the image I had about her was completely wrong.

My idea of these two women are completely overblown, and if you were to ask me about them, I couldn’t honestly tell you about there lives in any truthful manner. I could only tell you what I had been told about these two women.

Myth building

Now, like I said before, this could also be used as a means to promote Christ as a member of the godhead. God is all-good so god can’t sin. “Well, the gospels don’t mention that Christ lived a sinless life, and other books don’t mention this, so just to clear things up let’s make sure to get a reference in a couple of books to help cement Christ as also being god.”

I say that this could be the reason because the New Testament is filled with references to things being done so that some prophecy from the old testament could be fulfilled. This would be like me writing one book and then later writing another book and saying that the characters do something simply because the first book said they were going to do it. It’s called storytelling, and often times a sequel is made many years after the original and so the author or authors fit the new story to fit within the confines of the old story. Unless your name happens to be George Lucas, and if it is you just say, “Fuck it.”

So let’s talk about the books themselves.

We have no idea who wrote Hebrews, it’s been attributed to Paul even though there is almost no correlation or similarity to any of his other writings. Even the oldest sources that we have state that they have no clue who wrote the book. Origin, an early church father states;

“Whoever wrote the epistle, God only knows for sure.”

shrugged
Actual Picture of Origin

That basically means….”who the fuck knows. Somebody wrote it but really, who knows.”

1st Peter on the other hand is very clear that Peter the Apostle, first pope of Roman Catholicism, wrote the letter. Well, actually it’s not clear who wrote it, it’s in the exact same boat as Hebrews, no one really knows who wrote this book, they just know someone wrote it or it wouldn’t exist.  Church tradition has held that it was written by Peter, but that’s all there is to it, tradition. There is no historical backing to the claim that the Apostle Peter wrote this book.

So the sources for this claim, that Christ was sinless, are questionable in authorship. I’ve given conservative dates for when they were written, it’s possible they were actually written at a much later date. Things just don’t add up here, if it was important that Christ be sinless, why wouldn’t it have been mentioned in the gospels at all?

It’s Ridiculous

flair

I am an incredibly easy-going person. It takes a lot to get me upset. I can sit here and read posts from trolls all day long without my blood pressure raising even the slightest. However, I have bad days. I have days where I just say fuck it and go off on everyone that I come into contact with.

Now, you are trying to tell me that Jesus was a guy that never had an off day. He was always perfect, always good, never said anything hateful or disrespectful. He was a mayo sandwich wrapped in another mayo sandwich.

It makes no sense and even less sense when you think about the myth.

So Christ is supposed to be god in the form of man, who came to earth to live as one of us, go through all of our struggles, die for our sins, and grant us a means to salvation. Well, if he was perfect then it takes a whole lot away from this narrative. How does a perfect person know what it’s like to be me? How does a perfect person have any sense of struggle? The whole narrative of god becoming man to redeem us is destroyed if we are to believe that he was perfect. I mean, when he had a nail smashed through his hand we are to believe he didn’t say, “HOLY FUCK THAT REALLY FUCKING HURT YOU BASTARD!?!?!” Cause I smashed my hand on a pallet today and I sure as hell cussed up a fucking storm.

angry-jesus
Bad Day Jesus is soooo much cooler.

If god became man then he should have become man, he should have had all our faults, dealt with all of our sins, and got caught wanking off by his mother. If he lived the life of a normal human being and then still chose to go through the rest of it, maybe then he might be worthy of admiration of some sort….though human sacrifice to appease god is really fucking weird and gross. It would still at least be something…as it is we have nothing more than a bad fairy tale.
