The inconvenient store

If Atheism were a 24 hr food store, you may find this scenario upon walking through the doors of Big Al’s Atheist Food Closet.

A customer is looking for food and drink, you know, some staples of life, after driving 900 miles, water maybe, fruit, vegetables, perhaps a lamb chop or two, eggs, whole grain bread, you get the drift.

Problem is, there is nothing on the shelves. Walking around in circles, scratching his head, appearing lost as fog, the guy finally walks up to the checkout counter, sees a gal filing her nails, reading her ‘God delusion,’ chewing on a wad of gum, she looks up through her glasses as if to be so annoyed at the prospect of helping somebody and asks: ‘Like totally, uh, er, um, uh,  can I like uh, help you?’

‘I seem to be confused,’ says the shopper with an empty cart. ‘There is nothing, Nothing, absolutely NOTHING on the shelves. This is supposed to be a food store!’ Visibly agitated, he shouts at the volume of a bellowing elephant.

Looking at him now over the top of her cheaters and pounding away on that gum as if she was beating it with a club as she slams the book down, says: ‘Uh, dude, this is an atheist shopping food store. There is nothing on the shelves. We are so hip cuz we are like, uh, content-free. Love it man. Atheism has nothing. Atheism believes nothing. Nothing is everything man. The shelves are supposed to be empty, as this is a learning center for the mind. You really need to like, totally get it. Can’t you feel the music? Can’t you smell the notes? So pass the word. We are here to expand the horizons of humanity. Tell your friends about Big Al’s food store, where we provide real food.  But like uh, have a chilled day, like okay.’

Stunned, the customer walks away, and hears the gal sneeze. Instinctively he turns around and says ‘God bless you,’ to which end the sassbox mutters, ‘Sorry, He is not welcome here, so save it.’

In this harmless act of humanity, tradition aside, the girl showed what is all too common, and behaved more like an unreasoning animal who could not just say something like ‘thank you,’ instead of betraying her godless features, which are just about as ugly as one can get, but you already saw that above.

Postscript: Is this a stretch? Is this an accurate portrayal of the mind-boggling stupidity of atheism? Does not the false intellect and dripping snobbery of the clueless cashier smell from here to high heaven? Is it not completely true that atheism offers nothing of lasting value? A man may as well try to drink anti-freeze, and pretend it is lemonade than to expect there be mental nourishment from the cesspool of atheism.

Am I correct? Am I being truthful? Uh hello? Read any atheist blogs lately? Or comments on Christian sites? Listened to DeGrasse lately or Bill Maher? Enough said.

Atheism is the poison that fuels all godless religion, of the which atheism itself is the little god that can’t spell cat or tie his shoes. Atheism is the epitome  of inconvenient truth, and is the most egregious assault on humanity. By the way, it is stale bread in which even hungry ducks dismiss.

  1. Ha! Love this Colorstorm! Yes, amen. Well done. Atheism is like a store with all the shelves empty and a sales girl who serves no purpose. This is crazy, right? Who tries to run a store with nothing on the shelves? Even worse, they are actually selling something, er I mean selling “nothing.”

    And flat out, sleeping in front of that store are tons of broken people, alcoholics and addicts of all sort, people trying desperately to drown out the pain of all this nothingness they have been sold.

      Wonderful comment! Spot on! ColorStorm made a terrible mistake. Of course, Atheism is not content free. Man must worship. This true even of those irrational enough to argue God does not exist.

      So what content does Atheism have? If we say God does not exist, we commit the sin of Adam and Eve, of Satan. We must try to replace God.

      In the “modern” age, when man is supposedly so much wiser, how is that done? We use modern idols, of course. We can worship the accumulation of stuff, the enjoyment of sex, the exercise of power through the state, or the “righteousness” of our wonderful self. With no God to hold us accountable, we can do whatever we wish. We can do whatever those stupid theists are too fearful to do.

      So why would ColorStorm call such wonderful freedom from God content free? The Book of Ecclesiastes has the answer.

      Ecclesiastes 1:14 New King James Version (NKJV)
      14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity and grasping for the wind.

      “Under the sun” is a euphemism. When we cease to live without proper reverence for God, we live “under the sun”.

      Atheism, however, is not content free. It is the life of an Atheist that is vain and empty of meaning. So you were born. So you lived. So you died. If you denied your Creator exists, so what?

        The life of an atheist is free from gods, devils, deities, creators and their spirits, however atheists lives have everything you have in life, and much more than any religion can offer.

        We atheists have ourselves and the reality of life to answer to and most of us understand the science and humanity required for our continued existence into the future, therefore we have plenty of meaning and have no need to follow ancient superstitious ideologies that manipulate minds and bind lives to mythological events.

          Let me explain in more detail what has happened and why you ask such questions. Atheists and all humans are animals, we are part of the mammal group. Basically, there is not much difference between us and the other mammals such as bears. We are classified with the systematic name of Homo Sapiens, our brains have evolved into the most advanced brain putting us at the top of the food chain.

          Going back to before Homo ergaster and Homo erectus when our brains were much smaller and primitive the purpose of life was to survive and multiply the species, much as all animals still do today. It was only when early humans faced newer environmental challenges and evolved bigger bodies and larger more complex brains that they would have started questioning what is the purpose of life, how did we get here, how did the Earth and the stars get here, why does the sun disappear and why does water fall from the sky etc?

          The ancient simple minded man invented many gods as an answer to fill the knowledge gaps, but as life and scientific discovery have advanced, the need for gods is slowly disappearing. It is logical that modern humans have carried on the tradition due to the legacy of millions of years of ingrained godly faith and worship, hence this is why religious man is still asking the same questions.

          I suggest you do not let the purpose of life and your dire need to have to worship and thank something for your existence and everything that happens on Earth to dominate your life, because god worship is only a hangover from early man with much smaller brains as I have explained.

          Since your theory, your unproven “scientific” theory is unalterably correct, it “logically” follows that life has no purpose. If there is to be a purpose for our lives, we must provide it. So it is, perhaps, that so many Atheists believe we are the ones we have been waiting for.

          Why do Atheists spread a gospel that denies God existence? If there is no purpose to life — if there is no God — what is the point? Altruism? Not likely.

          Long ago Eve demonstrated how this works. After she had eaten the forbidden fruit, she asked Adam, who knew it was wrong, to eat that fruit? Why did Eve ask? Why did Adam eat that fruit? Why do naughty children encourage each other to smoke and drink (alcohol)? Is it just because of perverse logic? Do they believe that if everyone commits a sin it cannot be a sin?

          Do you spread your gospel out of altruism? How so? If there is no God, is not altruism just a bunch of chemicals? Is not love just a bunch of chemicals?

          If you are right and there is no God, then your behavior is even more irrational than that of Christians, for we are only guilty of believing a lie. You, however, know that whatever you do is pointless.

          I have never thought that I was born for any specific purpose on this planet. I have always thought that if you were born without health disadvantages and into a non-abusive society and a loving family environment you had been very lucky, and you have it within your power to live life to the full and be helpful to those who are not so lucky.

          As humans we are an advanced large brained animal who will live and die just as any other animal, but because we are humans with large active brains that we cannot always be master of, we become emotively unstable, we overthink many things and we have been prone to invent superstitions, monsters, dragons, myths and conspiracies etc. Because our brain literally controls your whole life, reality for each individual can be vastly different depending on how they want the world to be real for them.

          Your reality in a God I find is impractical and an impossibility, my reality is what the scientific answers are because humans are capable of finding evidence for the answers, in real terms I can see things, touch things and understand how everything works.

          “Why do Atheists spread a gospel that denies God existence?

          Like I have said science is hands on, it is a career, it employs millions of people around the world and will be the future of many children and will be the ultimate survival of the human race, but of course the destruction may also be true. Therefore, science cannot be displaced by creationism and children do not deserve to be indoctrinated and disadvantaged in life by a particular ideology preached by adults because of where they are born.

          “If there is no purpose to life — if there is no God — what is the point? Altruism? Not likely.”

          Altruism happens among all people, God or no God, so do you believe only Christians are capable?

          “If there is no God, is not altruism just a bunch of chemicals? Is not love just a bunch of chemicals?”

          Maybe, but there is some evidence love exists for all, and that animals are capable of experiencing the same emotions as we can but many scientists insist that they do not, however, the brains of many mammals are surprisingly similar to the human brain.

          “If you are right and there is no God, then your behavior is even more irrational than that of Christians, for we are only guilty of believing a lie. You, however, know that whatever you do is pointless.”

          The main point is why do you insist we know it pointless to live without a god or some creator because I do not feel this way? You cannot imagine what it is like to not have to worship God, but you hold onto this worshipping regardless of whatever happens with only the one single advantage being your anticipation of an eternal life, but that can only be an extremely limited speculation at best.

          “where do these vast atheist blessings come from?”

          Atheist happiness comes from within us, from within our brains where our very being and our every thought and emotion comes from. We mould our own brains through life to either being happy or unhappy to the challenges we face, and I understand that religious faith helps to do this for many people. But the one fact remains, religion is only faith and does not make God a reality.

          If you don’t believe in Gods or Devils and they exist you are certainly not “free” from them, you just deny them. Your belief or disbelief in anything has absolutely no bearing on reality at all.

          Reality is what it is. I can tell you for a fact that demons exist, I have met two of them. I can also tell you for a fact that Jesus exists as he came into my life supernaturally 12 years ago… and my atheism quickly dissolved.

          I would say Keith that you looked and found what you really wanted in life and it became a reality for you.

          The fact is if you truly had the desire to find what can only be termed as indisputable evidence you would still be a non-believer, because if you had studied the real science including the neuroscience with a unobstructed mind it would have become clear to you that all you believe including God firmly exists inside your head.

        • Oh how wrong you are. No one ever wants to come face to face with a Demon… I would only hope you do one day if it is the only way to open your eyes to the truth of Jesus Christ before it is too late.

          Now are you claiming that you have “studied the real science”?

          If you are claiming this… is it your position that you have studied the human brain…. and after all of your in-depth study came to the conclusion that everything in the universe arrived on the scene as a result of random natural processes?

          Further, have you come to the conclusion that the universe itself is a product of some random event in the distant past… something labeled a “Big Bang”?

          My reason for so many questions is this… the naturalistic world view, where everything is encased in a random series of natural events and restricted by the laws of nature…. simply collapses in upon itself the further you trace it back.

          No matter what, you end up believing in something SUPER NATURAL… because the laws of nature as we know them today, could not possibly have created the universe we inhabit.

          It is simply impossible.
