Dan's Invisible Clothes
So my new friend, Dan, who claims he can debunk me and my rational friends, presents me with a link to all my questions. Now, this is almost like the whole, "through that door is the hottest, most beautiful woman you have ever seen". Excited, I turn the knob, push the creeking door open, and standing there before me, in leather and lace, is......Pastor Ted Haggard... if you follow his link, this is how it begins:
Pretend with me for a moment. Let's just say that I stump you all with powerful arguments, using archaeological and scientific evidence. I have even intellectually dwarfed you.
Now all I have to do is convince you that Noah actually built an ark and brought in the animals two by two, that Jonah was swallowed by a whale, that Samson killed a thousand men with the jawbone of an ass, that Daniel was really in the lions' den, that Moses really did divide the Red Sea, and that Adam and Eve ran around naked...and ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Do you really think I can prove all of that to you?
You want me to "pretend with you", and then you ask me, like it's my fucking hangup, "Do you really think I can prove all that to you?". Yeah, you are right, how ridiculous of me to ask you for some rational justification of a belief which you claim may determine an infinity of pain or pleasure after our physical death. Whatever, right? It's all just willy-nilly flim-flam believe it cause I say it, asshole!!! Pastor Ted, emperor, sir, you have no clothes on....is this too blunt?
I think this is a fun start to debunking the debunker of atheists.
