No big surprise in this quiz.

 

The Ardent Atheist
The results are in, and it appears that you have scored 79%…
You are an atheist, pure and simple. You think God is just one big lie, and consider religious people to be both annoying and beneath you. Ardent atheists will argue tooth and claw for their position, and have no truck with people that won’t listen. You think being an atheist is the only way to lead an honest life, and see no reason to accept the pleas of faith. Ardent atheists are the backbone of atheism. Be proud.

  1. You are an atheist, pure and simple…61%

    I didn’like some of the questions. Not serious enough for my taste. But it was fun to do.

    Only 63%- too damn nice thats my problem. I don’t need a fat woman in a beard telling me what I should do- I do it coz I’m a human, sorry ‘wishy washy liberal’.

  3. Satan’s Little Helper?!? What the hell? I knew that best friend questions was going to come back to paint me as evil!

    Oh well, off to kill, gut, and cook one of my weaker neighbors…

  4. Oh well, off to kill, gut, and cook one of my weaker neighbors

    That’s a christian-based quiz. They believe Athiests don’t appreciate human life. It’s quite the opposite. As an Athiest, I wont kill unless it’s absolutely necessary for my, and “mine’s”, survival. A christian will kill first and “let god sort them out”.

  5. Also,

    “The Would You Have Been a Nazi Test”
    Der Kommandant
    Achtung! You are 30% brainwashworthy, 63% antitolerant, and 57% blindly patriotic
    Opportunistic, patriotic to a fault, and not so fond of people who aren’t just like you, you are like a Nazi General. Back in Germany in the 1940’s, you would have been at the top of the asshole list. Not for Nazism, necessarily, but for your own sick, twisted values. Then, out of superior intelligence (relative to other Nazis, that is), you would’ve climbed to the top.

    Conclusion: you would have been a Nazi, and most likely would have served them well.

  6. Nah.

    The Expatriate
    Achtung! You are 7% brainwashworthy, 31% antitolerant, and 14% blindly patriotic

    If you had been German in the 30s, you would’ve left the country.
    …born and raised in Germany in the early 1930’s, you would not have been a Nazi.

    You scored higher than 99% on brainwashworthy
    You scored higher than 99% on antitolerant
    You scored higher than 99% on patriotic

  7. Oh well, off to kill, gut, and cook one of my weaker neighbors…

    You got enough to share, Eric?  Nothin’ we ardent atheists like more than a nice piece of theist, done to a turn.

    …born and raised in Germany in the early 1930’s, you would not have been a Nazi.

    More to the point, elwed, you would not have been you.  Or do you think anti-Nazism is genetic?  Ist Nazisein ein Erbfehler?  Hmmm…

  8. Ist Nazisein ein Erbfehler

    It’s not a genetic defect, it’s a way of thinking. My parents were not Nazis, I learned of them in school (At least somebody got useful info out of all that WW2 crap they teach) and took a liking to them. Than again, I’ve always rooted for the “evil villains”.  cool grin

  9. It’s not a genetic defect, it’s a way of thinking.

    But a way of thinking can be a genetic defect too, if it is inborn and outdated: for instance, fear and dislike of strangers is almost certainly genetic, and served us well in our tribal past, but is increasingly dangerous in our modern world filled with well-armed strangers.  Diplomacy is hard to learn but necessary for survival nowadays.

    Whatever the hell that means LOL

  12. The fool says in his heart,
        “There is no God.”
        They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
        there is no one who does good.

    Psalms 14:1

    Praying you will reconsider. You might carve us up in this life (that’s likely coming sooner than you might have even wished), but according to Psalm 67:7:
    God will bless us,
        and all the ends of the earth will fear him.

  13. Yes, we’re familiar with the Bible, Mr/Mrs “Praying 4u,” and it makes for an unconvincing argument. You keep praying, though. You’re joining a long line of people who have been praying for me for decades.

  14. Praying you will reconsider.

    What’s to reconsider, Praying 4u?  Most of us atheists here know the Bible pretty well, and that’s part of the reason we’re atheists.  The Bible is a marvelous hodgepodge of history (accurate and inaccurate), fairy tales, and advice both good and bad- in other words, great literature.  But the word of God?  Nah.

    And using quotes from the Bible to threaten us, or to convince us of the truth of the Bible, is less than impressive.  Anyone can write a book that says “This is true, because God says so.  Believe it- or else.”  So what?

  15. The Bible is a marvelous hodgepodge of history (accurate and inaccurate), fairy tales, and advice both good and bad- in other words, great literature.  But the word of God?  Nah.

    Yes, well, I admit that using the Bible itself to prove it’s validity is circular logic. I also agree with your statement that anyone can write a book that says anything.
    However, have you ever considered these meta-themes in the Bible? I present them for your consideration, with no desire to threaten anyone. Peace

    The Bible is a collection of 66 books written by 40 different authors
    (Kings, fishermen, a tax collector, shepherds, prophets a doctor and a Jewish scholar named
    Paul) over a period of 1,500 years.
    And yet, they all wrote of one theme, the topic of Jesus Christ and the payment for sin that He
    provided. There is agreement on this from the beginning of Genesis to the closing words of
    Revelation.

  16. E.T.: “My mind is not for rent to any god or government.”

    Possibly the best quote ever. Now I’m in the mood to get out my Rush CD’s (I’m a huge fan).

  17. And yet, they all wrote of one theme, the topic of Jesus Christ and the payment for sin that He provided. There is agreement on this from the beginning of Genesis to the closing words of Revelation.

    Praying 4u, there are of course several different ways this could be debated from a Scriptural standpoint- for instance, Jews will not agree that Jesus is a theme in the Old Testament, and while Muslims and Bahá’ís will agree that Jesus is a Prophet of God, they will go on to claim that their own prophets supercede Jesus, as Christians believe Jesus supercedes Moses.

    But for a rationalist, all these themes and claims within religious texts, while interesting, don’t prove anything about the real world.  Let’s suppose there were forty authors who wrote about Jesus over a period of 1500 years.  So what?  God knows how many authors have written about the flatness of the Earth over thousands of years.  Just because a bunch of people have the same belief doesn’t make it true.

    Of course, this doesn’t prove the Bible to be false, either.  But there are enough internal inconsistencies, scientific inaccuracies, and just plain nastiness in the Bible to show that it is either not the Word of God, or if it is, that God is a twisted mindfucker.

  18. I’m not sure how the fact that Jesus is a theme in the Bible, or at least the New Testament, is supposed to be all that amazing. You make it sound like it’s difficult for multiple authors to write fiction that contains the same theme throughout the collections over a great period of time.

    I have a very lengthy collection of Doctor Who novels that are written by a whole host of different authors over the years, way more than 40 different people in the time they’ve been around, and yet they all manage to stay pretty consistent in the theme of telling the story of wandering Time Lord. The rate of inconsistencies and contradictions present in that series of books is probably lower than the ones found in the Bible.

    I’m willing to bet it wouldn’t be too hard for someone halfway decent at writing to come up with a new Gospel today that would seem consistent with what’s been written previously and have more than a few people buy into it. Just look at the Mormons for crying out loud.

  19. You make it sound like it’s difficult for multiple authors to write fiction that contains the same theme throughout the collections over a great period of time

    What consistancy? There is very little in the New Fables that even agrees at all. They don’t agree on the date of the supposed execution, the charges, who was there, or what was said. Move the the “ressurection” and it gets worse. What is interesting is if you graph the dates of the authors writings versus the “miracles”. The grow with the telling.

    Interestingly, there is no exo-biblical evidence agreeing with the bible’s account or anything even close. I will just wait in reserve until I hear “those primitive times and things weren’t documented like they are today.” That’s a lie, but will save a page of writing until I see it.
