Not trolling, just stupidity. In their world, God absolutely exists, so anyone 'claiming' to not believe in God just doesn't want anything to do with him. They know He exists, but are in denial.
It never occurs to these people that Athiests straight up say: "There IS no God". They can't ponder a world where a higher power exists, very much like these people can't fathom that people would NOT be able to believe a giant bearded man-baby created the cosmos.
ehh, as an athiest my mind is flexible enough to imagine a world with an invisible sky wizard. but this isn't that world, according to all the available evidence.
Because most athiesm is largely based on scientific knowledge, not a "faith" that there just is no god.
My answer to the question of "is there a God," is that it is extremely, infinitesimal unlikely. My reaction to people believing in a god is indifference.
Theists basically have a really hard time with the concept of atheism as a negative claim that IS NOT a factual claim and that atheism is not some ready-made belief system.
TruthGroup, among other internet-based fundie asshats, are pretty big into believing that the ultimate question that will confound all atheists everywhere is "what is your proof that atheism is correct?" not realizing (or caring to realize) what a nonsensical idea that is.
Or maybe it's a world where there IS a sky wizard, and he/she/it has gone to great lengths to make sure there is no empirical evidence of its existence, meaning that it also doesn't expect any kind of worship or attention from anything it created in our universe. Maybe it's just really, really embarrassed over the shitty job it did.
Somehow I don't think this is a creationist-acceptable explanation either.

The only thing offensive is his personality.

You may be right, but the world is still billions of years old, the world was never victim of a world wide flood, the world is not the center of the universe, and nobody ever rose from the dead. That's science!
To be fair, there are some people who've been clinically dead for short periods of time.
Again, i don't think creationists would find this an acceptable bone to have thrown to them.
Depends on how quickly the dying person lost consciousness. If it was slow enough for them to have some hypoxia-induced hallucinations, then obviously that was God waving Hi to them from Heaven. Checkmate, atheists.

Everything that exists had to come from somewhere. God didn't have to come from somewhere. God doesn't exist.

Too stupid to be offensive, kinda stupid enough to make me chortle a little once he finally gets to it.

He's charismatic. I want to like this guy. But that's not going to happen.

This guy would be a great used car salesman.
He's already doing a shitty job selling this "god" model.

He didn't cover synthetic stuff.

The eyebrows at 0:57 are what convinced me. Those are the eyebrows of a scientist. This guy's legit.

This guy is using the "...but thou must!" argument.
|dead_cat - 2012-08-10 |
This guy is NOT aging well at all.

I'm calling Poe's law on this one. It's a balding guy with glasses and a neckbeard; basically the skeptic uniform. The evangelicals may not know much, but they've got the tribal identity thing down, and they know enough not to look like the opposition.
No, he's depressingly for real.

This guy gives me flashbacks to the various youth groups I went to as a teenager. He really nails the mix of insincere desperate wackiness and self-serious salesman-like preaching that all of them had.
And to cap it off he uses their collective signature: dated slang that wasn't even cool when people actually said it. "It's a God thing" indeed.
