Commenting on The Amazing Atheist’s answer to my question

Believing in an anthropomorphic deity that dictates your behavior and hypothesizing the existence of a willless and consciousnessless cosmic “mind” should no…

He could have put it politely. He was not judging my points, he was just insulting me.

WillydeeThaBoi says:

lol thanks.

PrimeConsciousness says:

Does space and time exist? Who knows. It all appears a bit flimsy when there is nothing to appear.

TheMadboss100 says:

I guess u atheists dont believe in god because u all were born ugly

HEILEST says:

And um, er, ah, uh, um and uh, ummmm ahhh, uh, ahhhh er, that er um, um that uh ah, errr….

MrBaconification says:

So you encourage people to judge this without watching it? He must be able to watch it and then judge it, it is his right just as it is your right to put up this video.

You are quite annoying to listen to when you talk like that in the vid, I agree with the other guy about that.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

I actually have. It was one of the first things I did. It is not my fault if you are lazy and don’t want to look through the comments.

MrFond3ll says:

Aside from having to do with God that is.

Funnysterste says:

They guy who this video is adressed to, has posted a comment on it. And you dont even reply to him?

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Thank you, that’s quite a compliment.

CountChokcula says:

Crazy people everywhere

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Don’t like it? Don’t watch it.

SatansYardsale says:

And um, er, ah, uh, um and uh, ummmm ahhh, uh, ahhhh er, that er um, um that uh ah, errr….

Fuck I can’t do it anymore, make a complete sentence.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

How on earth did you bring the bible into this? The mythological book of Abrahamic religions has nothing to do with this video.

MrFond3ll says:

Arguing for the bible with the bible is a circular argument. You can never ever prove anything by saying “the grass is green because it is. just look at it!” without any further explanation to WHY it is like it is, and that’s where religion fails.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

You are describing testing a hypothesis, you are not defining hypothesis.

MrFond3ll says:

So now we have to change the very definition of “God” in order to be correct about the bible? But then again, we atheists knows very well that God never was a supernatural being. It was the sun, giving life to everything and everyone.

And Goedels incompleteness theorem proved that theorems are limited.

MrFond3ll says:

The difference is that in a hypothesis you wonder something and then try to find out how it works and it doesn’t matter if you get the answer you hoped for or another answer, because you’ve still found an answer. The God hypothesis assumes that god exists and then tries to backtrack from the “answer”, not go forwards from the guess to the answer.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Bingo!

oldnotweak says:

sounds VERY much like the definition of hypothesis to me 😛

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Thank you! It is so refreshing to finally see some sense!

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Bingo!

Gray Sloth says:

Consciousness is not the universe observing itself, consciousness is the universe misunderstand itself.

Jake Stone says:

Also, watch a video of Richard Feinamn explaining the scientific process. He literally says and writes on the board that the first step is to make a guess, then to find out the consequences if it were true, make predictions, and then observe reality. If you don’t trust Richard Feinamn to know what he is talking about, then I would be interested to know why.

Jake Stone says:

Try to really understand what he is saying. He is not using the term God to describe some giant man that for some reason cares what naked apes do in their free time. He is simply reassigning the word God to describe something more concrete, like the universe, and asking questions about the nature of thought and consciousness. I can also tell you that ultimately everything has no basis. This was proven by Goedels incompleteness theorem, which is a well established idea in science.

Charles Cox says:

That’s nonsense! Leprechaun shit is lucky charms. Not the marshmallows of course. That would be gross.

VampedIron says:

You do. People do, society decides what’s right or wrong. That’s why there is no truly right or wrong in morals because they change with society. 200 years ago people thought that forcing people to do slave labor for them and beating the shit out of them to near-death if they refused was a-okay as long as the person getting beaten was black. Now obviously we consider that practice barbaric and think the people who did it were monsters.

There is no set morality, it changes every generation.

Keegan Bunnell says:

The fuck are those pictures in the background?

cannabiscorpsefan says:

that’s just wrong. christians do whatever they do, but they don’t uniformly live their lives according to their beliefs. and it doesn’t make your position any less of a belief, first of all because you really have no implication believing in pantheism in the first place. saying you are ready to be falsified on the basis of your conviction is nothing but intellectual dishonesty, the “ontological argument” serves simply as the definition of a belief which can be freely altered in any way you wish.

knightxd4 says:

Here’s the problem with your self label. The second you label yourself a pantheist, you ARE making a belief claim about the supernatural origins of the universe. You back off enough to call it a hypothesis and make sure that you let us know that you don’t have any worship rituals or traditions. That doesn’t make the god question a spectrum. It makes worship etc. of a deity to be a spectrum. Existence or non existence is still a binary question. Either a god given god exists or it doesn’t.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Perfectly acceptable.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Perfectly acceptable.

Lain Iwakura says:

No, I don’t think that makes what you’re claiming “highly probable” in the slightest bit. I don’t follow your deduction either. I am really not a closed minded person, I just think your argument is bad.

Konsta Heikkilä says:

You don’t believe the concept of God is a yes or no question? As opposed to 50 % existent and 50 % nonexistent?
Claiming natural laws are enough does not imply that all but atheists believe in “supernatural laws.” (What are “supernatural laws?”) Even if it did, theists believe in a supernatural, higher power or several by definition, do they not? It doesn’t matter if you don’t believe “supernatural” has any meaning – it still has: it relates to something that exists beyond this universe.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

No, I have nothing to do with Nazi ideology.

marchofthenoobs says:

you mock, but it has just as much evidence as pantheism.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

I shave them.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Thank you!

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Thank you! Finally somebody sees sense!

marchofthenoobs says:

“there aren’t any that I know of”
“aren’t”
and to prove him wrong you cited history? the soviet union dont exist no more, bro. it aint an arent, its a werent.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Good answer.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

I really hope so. But all I see is a horde that hasn’t really watched the video bombarding me with dislikes and at best commonplace atheist comments.

Thomas Deutscher says:

Nazi sun wheel symbol in the logo and serpent sun as name … ss … ok?

marchofthenoobs says:

so, the fact that we are at the top of the food chain because of our intelligence means that at the top of the universe’s food chain is god, who actually is the universe itself? i’m sorry, that makes no sense. there is no correlation there that can be used as evidence.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Christians live their lives according to their beliefs, which they believe are absolutely true. I believe that my ontological position could easily be false and I do not live my life according to any religious code.

Michael Vrazitoulis says:

Thanks for the support.

SDJrekoff says:

poser

Alla bense says:

I mean why does he have to add an unnecessary and mysterious/ magical element to his view of our universe?

imhighsowhat says:

Very fast, fallen angel. All that in one minute. Really? Lol

ChristianVido says:

If you are to classify the divine and the universe as being the same, then why even create the distinction that the divine exists – why not just call it the universe. I could say that, according to my beliefs, that faeries and the universe are the same. Therefore, if the universe exists, faeries exist. It is completely tautological to say such things, and absolutely fruitless to do so.
