Atheism 'the result of the DoE's failure'

11 December 2012, 07:23
In a recent article as list below an certain blogger made a statement that made me realise with a shock that our education department are to blamed for atheism...

I quote

henry.vanderburpenfart - December 10, 2012 at 09:08

So you're saying that something exists not just because you can imagine it, but that the elements of it's concept as well as anecdotal accounts existing back up your "theory"?

Let's apply this:
Short people exist - Check
people with red beards exist - Check
Green clothes exist - Check
Rainbows exist - Check
Pots exist - Check
Gold exists - Check

Ergo: Leprechauns exist not only because of their elements existing in the real world, but the combination of the above existing elements in Irish folklore verify the hypothesis.

My hypothesis is that your theory sucks.

By the way:

Unicorns are clearly mentioned in the Christian bible:
Job 39:9–12, Psalm 29:6, Numbers 23:22 & 24:8, Deuteronomy 33:17, Psalms 22:21, 29:6, 92:10 and Isaiah 34:7 “

Let check…

Job 39:9-12

New King James Version (NKJV)

9 “Will the wild ox be willing to serve you?
Will he bed by your manger?
10 Can you bind the wild ox in the furrow with ropes?
Or will he plow the valleys behind you?
11 Will you trust him because his strength is great?
Or will you leave your labor to him?
12 Will you trust him to bring home your grain,
And gather it to your threshing floor?

Psalm 29:6

New King James Version (NKJV)

6 He makes them also skip like a calf,
Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.

Numbers 23:22

New King James Version (NKJV)

22 God brings them out of Egypt;
He has strength like a wild ox.

Numbers 24:8

New King James Version (NKJV)

8 “God brings him out of Egypt;
He has strength like a wild ox;
He shall consume the nations, his enemies;
He shall break their bones
And pierce them with his arrows.

Deuteronomy 33:17

New King James Version (NKJV)

17 His glory is like a firstborn bull,
And his horns like the horns of the wild ox;
Together with them
He shall push the peoples
To the ends of the earth;
They are the ten thousands of Ephraim,
And they are the thousands of Manasseh.”

Psalm 22:21

New King James Version (NKJV)

21 Save Me from the lion’s mouth
And from the horns of the wild oxen!

You have answered Me.

Psalm 92:10

New King James Version (NKJV)

10 But my horn You have exalted like a wild ox;
I have been anointed with fresh oil.

Isaiah 34:7

New King James Version (NKJV)

7 The wild oxen shall come down with them,
And the young bulls with the mighty bulls;
Their land shall be soaked with blood,
And their dust saturated with fatness.”

No unicorn or inference to one, unless a unicorn is an ox…

Let check what we know about both

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ox

An ox (plural oxen), also known as a bullock in Australia, New Zealand and India, is a bovine trained as a draft animal. Oxen are commonly castrated adult male cattle.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicorn

The unicorn is a legendary animal from European folklore that resembles a white horse with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead, and sometimes a goat's beard and cloven hooves

Now to the educated person this would be two different animals, where one is mythical creature.

I am glad I never took biology from the Old Standard 8 onwards. My kids most probably will also not take biology after I showed them what atheism does to a person, despite his education and increase cerebrum(1) that the ox was a unicorn  or visa versa or  speciation of something before evolution used genetic drift and natural selection to name a few mechanisms. I am glad about the fact I learned to be successful at the comprehension tests in both languages. I am sure if I twisted a written piece like the blogger of this post did, I would get a zero.

So if atheism is a choice, like one sexuality is a choice, I choose not to be these “educated and well learned.

"It definitely is genetic, just the same way us atheists have developed larger cerebrums"
