As the title says..."what's your favourite question to ask a theist"?
You may have many favourites...I would like to hear from you guys about yours.
I have a personal favourite which I often use when they start spouting their spew that GOD wrote the bible at the beginning of time, he created everything....
"OK. If GOD wrote the BIBLE at the beginning of time like you say...some 14.5 BILLION, that's BILLION years ago, What language was it written in?"
Most theists I know don't even know what language JESUS spoke. It's sad really.
Another of my favourites is this one...
"Why did it take GOD 10 BILLION years to make the planet EARTH and then a further 4.5 BILLION years to make MAN?"
There's always a spewy reply of some sort or another which usually gets my goat and the theist is appalled at my outburst of laughter.
So come on you guys....let 'em have it....share your ammo with us.
But it does sound a lot like the Abraham/Isaac story.
As we know there are about 120 different species of Woodpecker don’t you think Noah was very brave to allow 240 breeding woodpeckers into his wooden ark?
Wasn’t Noah brilliant to be able to drop off the penguins in Antarctica and then bring the polar bears to the Arctic? Does the bible tell us which was first?
They might respond: They migrated and micro-evolved in the last few thousand years.
if a creationist christian ever used the word "micro-evolved" I would laugh in their face
One of my favorite bumper stickers, the christian fish eating the atheist/humanist fish. It seems to me that they would atleast get their own humor. Darwinian theory does not care who is 'fit' to survive. The next fish to come along could have a corporate logo, poor little fishy..;p)
Love it. BIG LOL.
The 'devil' is in the details. This is why they stop thinking at the appropriate time, else it falls apart like a bad icecream cone!
William, your questions would be refuted by a fundamentalist as they would claim the Earth is only like 6000 years old.
And I would laugh in their face sir.
It's usually has the upsetting effect intended.
"If Jesus is God in the form of man, then there's about a 1 in 10 chance he was gay, right?"
That's some funny stuff...LOL
