Morality in Action / Defeating Christians

Alleee has posted a little cartoon for children (and relativists) about the nature of morality : Sally and Cy.


How Brian Flemming defeated Tucker Carlson :

FLEMMING: God doesn't exist any more than the Easter Bunny, they're both--

CARLSON: --Hold on there! That's crazy. I can disprove the existence of the Easter Bunny. You can't disprove the existence of God.

FLEMMING: You can disprove the existence of the Easter Bunny?

CARLSON: Of course.

FLEMMING: Do it.

CARLSON: The Easter Bunny is said to do certain things. We can observe that these things are not happening. Therefore the Easter Bunny does not exist.

FLEMMING: Name one thing God does that I can observe.

Today I spent an hour on the air talking about the War on Easter with John Carlson. . .

Though it would have been cool if it was Tucker.

Brian's thesis about people believing false things that sounds like they should be true is proven yet again!

Pardon my ignorance here, but what specifically is it that the Easter Bunny is said to do? If the Easter Bunny's task is to bring happiness, well, I know a lot of happy people. Can Carlson prove that they were not somehow made happy by the Easter Bunny? Is it the Easter Bunny's task to color Easter eggs? Perhaps one could say that this was his task at some point in the past, but now that children have learned how to do this themselves, it would be superfluous for the Easter Bunny to have to do this. Carlson cannot escape the pinch of trying to prove a negative. What he does not seem to question is the supposed onus to prove that the non-existent does not exist, an onus that no one needs to accept.

When it comes to demonstrating the alleged existence of their god, theists are going to have to do better than assert their untestable claims, such as "God created the universe" or "God caused it to rain this morning." One attribute credit for these things to any invisible magic being. Ultimately, the theist should be pressed to explain how his theistic boasts can be reliably distinguished from his imagination, for it it between his imagination and reality that the actual antithesis lies.

I remember reading about this on Flemmings weblog. I laughed my ass off.

Tonight, Flemming is hosting a secular meet up in Hollywod. Im going to try to make it there.

I swear I just heard an audience cheer at that last line.
