Not So Polite Dinner Conversation – Christians say the darndest things

This is something I have to preserve for posterity.  A Christian told me this:

“Trying to cast a disagreement as a lie is symptomatic of primitive thinking. Look, there is no consensus among atheists that atheism is merely a lack of belief in a god. If atheism is merely a lack of belief in a god, are you admitting that pedophilia is atheistic since it too doesn’t involve a belief in god?”

So, my friends, do you agree atheism is a lack of belief in a god and only that?   have you seen any other definition for atheism offered by an atheist?

It’s so cute to see Christians have to try to cast aspersions so utterly ineptly.

Addendum (10/14/19): 

It’s even better to watch a conservative Christian intentionally lie when it comes to my comments and wondering just so “innocently” why I’m not answering posts: “Oh, and I noticed that many others have replied to you. Is there a reason you are ignoring them? Don’t you think that is kind of rude?” .  Well, he’s not allowing them out of moderation and his blog so helpfully show this:

The snipping tool is just so handy: michaels failure

it’s rather like Christians trying hiding fossils.  One might wonder if they’ve read their bible at all since lying isn’t looked upon favorably by their god.

  1. The continual and relentless attempt of Christians and amateur internet apologists to cast the definition of atheism as positive belief THAT God does not exist is just a dishonest effort to rid themselves of the burden of proof for their claim THAT God does exist, but shifting it to atheist to PROVE God doesn’t exist.
    They know it’s dishonest but they continue doing it because they know they can’t meet their burden.

  2. There’s just so much wrong with that christian’s comment that I don’t really know where to start. Religion has obviously worked very hard to make sure this person doesn’t have a clue about how to think clearly. And has taught them that trying to derail the conversation with a bunch of unrelated B.S. counts as an argument.

  3. “Look, there is no consensus among atheists that atheism is merely a lack of belief in a god.”

    So to be an Atheist you must lack belief in a god, or gods. So to be an Atheist you must lack belief in God. Is that not a consensus?

    Comparing Atheists to pedophilia? I thought pedophilia was a gay issue. I guess the next logical step for a Christian is to make all Atheists gay. Damn it, now I’m starting to think like them.


    1. Definition of pedophilia from Wikipedia: Pedophilia, or paedophilia, is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children.

      No mention of “gays.” No mention of same sex attraction.


  4. Interesting post. It almost channels mine from this morning. I’m sure you will read it (Dispassionate Doubt).
    I was not aware that atheists must agree on anything. If we do, that would be quite an unusual event.
    Define the word however, I am convinced there are no gods. Please convince me otherwise. Waiting.


  5. Let’s flip the ridiculous second sentence:

    Look, there is no consensus among Christians that Christianity is merely a belief in a god.

    Now, we’re getting somewhere! 🙂
