an atheist viewpoint

thoughts from a non-theist

Curious

 How did Santa know??

Risible Bullshitter in Chief at Sinner Ministries, and owner of the hilariously inaccurately named ‘Proof that God Exists’ website, Sye Ten Bruggencate was practically omnipotent himself just a month or so ago. You couldn’t open your laptop without his grizzled Canadian face appearing and asking ‘how do you know that?’ over and over and over again until you lost the will to live.

Downloaded your favourite podcast? You could almost guarantee that Syecular would be there, often with his BFF Eric ‘My dad’s in prison because he’s a crook’ Hovind, or his preacher pal Dustin ‘I’ve disproved the Primacy of Existance! Oh, no I haven’t, never mind, I’ll just delete my post as if nothing’s happened!’ Segers, again asking ‘how do you know that?’ repeatedly until the show hosts gave up and rolled the end credits.

Say something to him? You could almost be certain that he’d start boasting that he was going to make a video of your ‘absurdity’, before distancing himself from any such video that appeared.

Then he upped his game and started threatening legal action against others….then, silence.

No cries of ‘how do you know that?’, no huffy threats of taking people to court….zip. It’s as if he’s vanished from the face of the earth.

Perhaps he was raptured?

Whatever’s happened, I have to say it’s most welcome! Now if we could only get Bob Sorensen, Dan Marvin, Eric Hovind, and Joe Cienkowski to disappear as well we could all have a merry Christmas indeed!

  1. It's a Christmas miracle!

  2. Curious thread from his Facebook fansJake JaresI keep getting hung up on a particular prepositional point – okay, so you've established that no one can think without a rational foundation, now what requires that foundation to be the Christian faith?Thursday at 06:09 Gary Murray I'm not Sye, but I would assume that for the Christian, it is easy. We accept the Christian faith as the grounds of all logic, because we accept the notion that scripture teaches there is only one God, he's the creator of all things and thus he created logic. For the unbeliever, he/she must first believe in Christ and repent before they can ever come to any conclusions at all about anything at all. If they have no basis in which to place their faith in logic or exists then they've yet to understand that logic or matter exists because their faith is based in logic and reason itself, yet you can't use either to explain where either originated from (enter circular reasoning). They must assume and accept that both logic and reason originated from a single omnipotent source because without that source, there is no logic or reason, man didn't create logic or reason, we only use them as the tools that were provided to us by God. If we say there is no God, then we put the cart before the horse and look pretty stupid… As for which God (which I believe is where this argument gets hung up) that falls to the legitimacy of the scriptures and the foundation of where the God you serve comes from. I lean on the God of the Bible, not only because he revealed himself to me and I chose to accept and believe on his son, and because the endless truth IN scriptures let alone the countless prophecies that God's word has spoken that have come true and are still coming true. The God of Israel and the Bible is real and the only true God, not because I say so, but because He does. Thursday at 18:00 · 1 Gary Murray Keep in mind also… For an unbeliever to ask this question is to assume (or accept) that there is a God… If this be the case then he/she is closer to the acceptance of the God of the Bible more than they recognize or know because to accept that there is a God is only by realizing it and waking up from your unbelief because it was only the God of the Bible who has ever said in his scriptures that he has revealed himself to us and written his existence on the heart of all men. If the unbeliever is stuck on this question, they've already conceded in their rational mind that a God exists, they may not have accepted it within their emotional sin, but they're closer than we may realize, so don't give up when this question is asked, press toward the mark and you might lead that unbeliever to Christ! Thursday at 18:04 · 1 Jake Jares Thank you, I've never thought of that last point ("only the God of the Bible…all men"). It's actually really easy to prove the existence of "a" God, as they can't argue anything without believing in an omnipotent foundation for reason, but proving the existence of "the" God has been more of a challenge. Friday at 03:55 Dustin S. Segers Technically, one could posit a made-up uniplural god to fit the bill; but if they do so, they are obligated to give us a reason then to believe in that made up god. This is why the positive argumentation is Scriptural and Theological and not primarily philosophical. Friday at 22:13 Dustin S. Segers This commonly occurs with atheists and I usually say, "Congratulations, you've just given up your atheism to defend your atheism, and (2) you've provided us no predictive prophecy grounded in historical events, etc., (3) and thus given us no good reason to believe in your god over a uniplural Flying Spaghetti monster. Friday at 22:14 · 3So, Dustin accepts that any monotheistic god will do.And that, is game over. 🙂

  3. Syecho is surprisingly absent from his own fan site as well….perhaps he's realised what a dick he's been?

  4. Well, it seems that you have access to that site, I'm not sure I do…I was able to find him and Dustin, but I didn't see any such messages on Sye's page. Do I have to "friend" him to see it? I didn't have to for Ken Ham. (Though he delated my comments anyway, the prick).I did notice some odd things in those comments you quoted in this post though. Including the idea that an immaterial non-tangible idea like logic can actually be "created" in the first place! That's what they have to say in order to claim that the atheist has "assumed the existence of god" to argue for atheism or "the atheist has given up his atheism in order to argue for atheism".Gary Murray Keep in mind also… For an unbeliever to ask this question is to assume (or accept) that there is a God… Bullshit.If this be the case then he/she is closer to the acceptance of the God of the Bible more than they recognize or know because to accept that there is a God is only by realizing it and waking up from your unbelief because it was only the God of the Bible who has ever said in his scriptures that he has revealed himself to us and written his existence on the heart of all men.If so, then there would be no need for missionaries since every religion on the planet would have some form of worship that at least closely resembled biblegod worship. They don't. Then there are the biblical problems with science that I've pointed out before…Even if that were true, the fact that all those religions out there are so "corrupted" makes that action of "putting god in everyone's hearts" useless. Then there's the fact that biblegod didn't let people in the "new world" know of the way to get "saved" (ie. Jesus) until the European missionaries came! Just what one would expect if biblegod didn't exist and was an invention of those same people.If the unbeliever is stuck on this question, they've already. conceded in their rational mind that a God exists,..Again, bullshit. …they may not have accepted it within their emotional sin, but they're closer than we may realize, so don't give up when this question is asked, press toward the mark and you might lead that unbeliever to Christ!

  5. Alex do you love sye?

  6. Trinity, how you could possibly think that is beyond me.

  7. "Trinity, how you could possibly think that is beyond me."I don't think Trinity does think it's beyond you, that's the point :-DNice to know you missed me though. I was out of town.

  8. Holy shit, that picture of you looks like Relic from the Beachcombers!

  9. Sye said "blah blah blah"Still a total prick I see.

Write what you like, but don't cry if you act like a dick and get banned for it
