Pharyngula

Wanna go to hell?

Trade your soul for a DVD! All you have to do is post a video of yourself to youtube, stating that you deny the holy spirit, and you’ll get a copy of The God Who Wasn’t There. Why those magic words?

Whoever blasphemes against the holy spirit can never be forgiven.

Mark 3:29

More details on The Blasphemy Challenge are available online, and they have a trailer, even:

Some of the comments on that video are hilarious.

You know what I hate? Fanatic Christians? Know what I hate just as much? Fanatic Atheists. This ‘challenge’ is disrespectful on a level I can’t even verbalize. It’s juvenile and inane. What do you hope to accomplish by doing this? It’s obvious the only purpose is to get a rise out of people. Disgusting.

Poor fellow. What he doesn’t realize that there’s nothing fanatical about this at all. Stating that I deny the holy spirit only means that I have made an unambiguous statement about what I believe. It does get a rise out of people, but the fault lies in them, not us; should I get outraged every time a Christian recites the Nicene creed? Isn’t it more the case that a fanatical theist would get angry at people saying that they don’t believe as he does?

Oh, and this one needs no comment, since the inanity is self-evident:

STOP THIS! Please, if you’re thinking about blaspheming against the spirit, don’t! It’s no laughing matter, it’s the worst thing you could ever do.

Who was Jesus Christ? Liar? Lunatic? Lord? Those are your options. Those 3. That’s it. Liar? Yeah, right! He’d have to be a freakin’ genius liar to fool everybody in the bible! Hahaha, puh-leeze! Lunatic? OMG! Hahaha! You’re funny! That explains how He died for our sins then came back to life! Moron. He was Lord. Duh!

This one is also funny:

So athiests think their immortal soul is worth a free DVD. Intersting; sad, VERY sad, but interesting none the less.

Let’s get all reverent about that all-important “immortal soul”. What the complainers don’t realize is that it doesn’t exist, so it doesn’t count: what this really represents is trading a few minutes of effort to make a 30-second video for a free DVD.

I already have the DVD, so I’ll do this for free. I deny the holy spirit.

    Crosius: You’re an agnostic. Welcome to the club.
    Godol: Bingo.
    llewelly: Great! That’s how to argue against an “argument” that’s based on questionable premises and a lack of evidence. I need to remember that. :-)
