Congratulations from Atheists of the World


Taylor Paschal-Placker age 13



Skyla Whitaker age 11

According to news reports, the above two young girls went for a brief walk on Sunday, June 8, 2008 near their homes in Oklahoma. They were soon afterwards found shot to death by an unknown killer.

Any normal human being would be outraged by this act of brutality; however from the point of view of an atheist, the killer should actually be congratulated for his success. He enjoyed the excitement of killing at will and most probably will never be caught and punished. [As of 11/11/2008, no arrests have been made.] From the atheistic point of view, the killer has no soul and there is no afterlife, so of course he will never be held accountable before any heavenly tribunal. Although no atheist would have the audacity to admit it, deep in his heart every atheist must be filled with admiration for a man like this.

It is hard to imagine a more evil and dangerous philosophy.

JP: Any normal human being would be outraged by this act of brutality; however from the point of view of an atheist, the killer should actually be congratulated for his success.

CH: Actually from the point of view of an atheist, this is a heinous act of barbarism that contravenes all moral laws.

JP: He enjoyed the excitement of killing at will and most probably will never be caught and punished.

CH: And let's be clear, he is most likely (80%+ chance) god-fearing.

JP: From the atheistic point of view, the killer has no soul and there is no afterlife, so of course he will never be held accountable before any heavenly tribunal.

CH: Nope, but if and when he is caught I expect him to be held accountable to a human tribunal.

JP: Although no atheist would have the audacity to admit it, deep in his heart every atheist must be filled with admiration for a man like this.

CH: Being an atheist does not mean having no morality or moral sense or ethics.

However you in particular Jacob are a hypocrite for even posting this discussion. If God is real, and Omnipotent and moral - then why would She allow these killings to take place? And if She did allow the killings to take place, then isn't that what God wanted? This is exactly the argument you made regarding the holocaust and cancer in children - that they deserved it and that their suffering is God's will.

So which is it Jacob? Did these kids have a 'past-life' that somehow made them deserving of being target practice for one of your God's serial killers? Did they deserve their fate because their parents have sinned in some way? Or is it in fact the responsibility of the killer and not the victims? And if that is the case, then how do you explain God letting the killer slaughter children?

JP: It is hard to imagine a more evil and dangerous philosophy.

CH: I'd say yours qualifies easily, as no evil goes unrewarded by your God.

This comment is a perfect example of atheistic apologetics. Rambling on and on about everything and anything, firing off all sorts of insults at religion, however carefully ignoring the question actually raised in this post. Twisting and turning in every direction [“he is most likely (80%+ chance) god-fearing” sure, he’s probably even a member of my synagogue studying Talmud just before the murders; “is it in fact the responsibility of the killer and not the victims” why can’t it be both, the victims deserved to die and the killer is wicked as well for killing them], he fails to address the problem of atheism being toxic to any shred of ethics and morality.

JP,

Why do you feel that atheists would not deplore murder of children?

jewish philosopher said...

Not deplored, on the contrary, atheists should applaud it.

I just finished reading "The Irrational Atheist" by one Vox Day. (I know, I know, he's just a game designer, he's biased because he's a libertarian Christian, he said some controversial things in the past, etc. But he does provide all the documentation and the sources.) He provided a list of 55 atheistic mass murderers from the 20Th. Century alone. Each one was responsible for at least 20,000 non-martial murders. I already new that the two worst mass murderers, Stlain and Mao were atheists, and the number three, Hitler was Darwininst, and that there were more atheists in the top ten, but I had no idea that there were so many.

And he also cites a study down in England in 2000 on the prison population. It seems that there were very few people who identified themsleves as atheists in prison. However, the number of people who described themselves as "having no religion" or "belonging to no religion" was over-represented in the priosn population by 300% over their representation in the general population. I would imagine that a substantial percentage of the latter group was mad eup of atheists.

jewish philosopher said...

Why am I not surprised?

jewish philosopher said...

Some readers have commented:

Atheists would also like to see murderers punished because that will benefit them as well. That may be true, however they may also be happy to see the environment cleansed of people who are causing global warming.

Atheists are also disgusted by murder because that is human nature.
Actually, it probably isn’t. Look at man’s history of war and aggression.

Anyone still harboring doubts about the capacity atheists have for joy killing need look no further than the well known Leopold and Loeb case.

jewish philosopher said...

Someone asked, since we know that everything that happens is decreed by heaven (the first principle of Jewish faith is “I believe with perfect faith that God is the Creator and Ruler of all things. He alone has made, does make, and will make all things.”) in light of this, why should a criminal be punished, since he is merely doing God’s will?

The answer is that we must use our free will to choose to be God’s agent for construction, not His agent for destruction. The bad will happen in any case, that is true, however it could happen as result of disease, lightening striking or something else, however if we choose to do it, then we are transgressing.

Clarence Darrow defended Leopold and Loeb by saying that they were the products of evolution, and couldn't be held responsible for their actions.

alex said...

Although he didn't write it explicitly here, if I'm understanding JP correctly, he would say that /of course/ most atheists find these murders repulsive, but that it is /despite/ their atheism.
Am I on the right track?

jewish philosopher said...

My point is that from an atheistic point of view, one should do whatever feels good provided that you will not be arrested for it.

David said...

You are an IDIOT.

jewish philosopher said...

Perhaps the truth hurts.

From reading your blog, you speak a lot about things I can find that you have tought thrue but not gone really deep in studying. How can i just KNOW that you have NO study and have no idea what zoologi, culture antropologi, paleontologi, psycology, geo-biologi and evolutionary biology of any sort of kind. you have no clue what's behind your desk at home. Read a book my fellow friend.
