Laws of Internet Atheism

David Heddle has reposted his favorite inviolate laws of internet atheism.  Here are some of my favs:

The Law of the Converts: Every atheist who claims to have been a devout Christian was. Every Christian who claims to have been an atheist, wasn’t.

The Law of the Biblical Scholars: Atheist biblical scholars are credible because they have no agenda. Christian biblical scholars lack credibility because they have an agenda.

The Law of “When Ken Ham is right, he is really right!: YECs like Ken Ham are the dumbest jackasses in the world. Except when they interpret Genesis One. For that single chapter in the bible they are exegetical savants.

Irrefutable Proof that Miracles can’t happen: Miracles, by definition can’t be explained by science. Everything can be explained by science. Therefore miracles can’t happen. Because they can’t be explained by science. Therefore science and religion are incompatible.

    This is worth repeating.

    my favourite is this one:
    The Super-duper Paul of Tarsus View: Atheists often attribute the Apostle Paul with powers far beyond what Christians grant. To wit: it is often suggested that he a) did not exist. And yet in spite of not actually being real he managed to b) usurp Christianity, creating an entirely new religion quite different from that taught by Jesus—who by the way probably did not exist either. And c) Paul managed, while not existing, to steal Christianity —through the use of forged letters. Remarkable! In a nutshell the “super Paul” view is that two people who never existed created two distinct religions (fraudulently). Then later fools, who believed in both of these non-entities, merged their contradictory teachings into a franken-religion.

    You give no evidence for any of this, that already have counter examples lots of people can attest to, and expect people to just take your opinion as fact? Your explanation of miracles was half witted. Science doesn’t explain everything that can be explained with math and history. http://www.garyhabermas.com/books/historicaljesus/historicaljesus.htm https://bible.org/article/historical-reliability-gospels
