Isn't it ironic when Christians call atheists "wacko" when Christians believe in insane things and atheists just lack those beliefs?

A Christian with the initials CG (supposedly PhD - lmfao), who believes a cookie becomes a 2000 year old dead man when a man in a dress flails his arms, calls a person who doesn't believe that "wacko."

Is this mental and emotional disturbance a sign of psychological projection, a defense mechanism in which one redirects the futility of their own belief with an insult onto someone exposing that futility?

    Not ironic really, it's a tactic as old as the hills. When you turn an accusation around on the accuser, you can make it SEEM as if your accusation is as valid as your accuser's. Trump and his followers do this all the time, accusing liberals of being racist, when it's actually they who are.

    isn't it IRONIC when Christians call atheist WACKO ... IRONIC is a possible adjective to be used .... according to BIBLICAL DOCTRINE the "God" will BURN , inflict pain on the DEAD for ETERNITY ( TORTURE ) for lack of BELIEF ....

    .. a person might wonder what that implies about CHRISTIANS that they find that characteristic ADMIRABLE ( WORSHIP )

    I looked up "insane" in the dictionary, and "something I don't personally understand" is not one of the definitions.

    The irony is of course lost on them. Its sad, but also sort of funny.

    Actually, CHRISTIANITY is the only belief that fixes EVERYTHING.

    If you think you got ZERO wrong with you, give a course. Fix the world. Fix the debt. Get rid of all problems.

    No, we all got problems. And WE are PART of the problem.

    Many play the blame game but in fact, some is us.

    Did you notice everything is OWNED on earth? You either own it or rent it?

    Btw? No individual OWNS anything? Taxes? Government?

    But it IS OWNED.

    Should it be SO SHOCKING that this EARTH is owned?

    Everything is owned but earth is free? That's not logical.

    Nor biblical.

    In the Bible God made it, it's His, and He made it for those He'd save.

    Jesus has saved millions and millions have been killed?

    Why?? Why if it's just some insane belief'? Why kill them?

    You bought lies, so TRUTH sounds off to you..

    Atheists are rejected by God, defective in the Spiritual realm.

    But otherwise, you're fine, great. Just usurp away.

    You have exposed no futility, dear one. Think again, if you are able. Prove that all Christians believe entirely in insane things, and your question and reasoning might even become intelligent. Try not to beg the question.

    The fact remains that every year millions experience God for themselves. Don't bother moving the goalposts; it's more evidence than you have to shore up your atheism. Know God for yourself, through your own experiences with him. That's the logical thing to do. The problem is, as you have just demonstrated, no atheist is ever logical concerning God.

    not all atheists are wacko, its just the ones on Yahoo.

  • when someone says "they just lack belief" but then goes on to preach their world view and assert it, they are doing much more than 'lacking belief', dear. When they go beyond lacking belief into preaching and asserting, especially saying ridiculous things like most other atheists do, they enter into the realm of stupidity, dear.

    The only Christian on here with CG as initials is Chi Girl, is that who you are talking about? Or did I forget about someone?

    Worshipping a 2000 year old virgin who still lives with his dad, real or not, is what I call wacko.

    • Here is the example of preaching and asserting, but as we can all see, dear, you agreed with it. So it turns out you are doing more than 'lacking belief dear.
