No this article isn’t about Jim Warner Wallace’s stupid website http://pleaseconvinceme.com which is a complete waste of time by the way and am completely disgusted by the stupidity I read on it.
Last year I actually wrote a huge article destroying Jim Wallace’s stupid book Cold Case Christianity, but when I had finished destroying 12 chapters of the 14 chapters in his book, I realized I couldn’t really do anything with what I did because it’s all copyrighted. It really is quite sad that Warner and his people have an entire website into lying and brainwashing people and thinking it’s noble, when really all they are doing is helping destroy the world and infect people with a horrible disease (the faith virus).
It’s not that I couldn’t easily destroy the last 2 chapters, but I just never bothered finishing after I found out I couldn’t post it anyway. It really is quite a pathetic book. Here I thought the bible was pathetic. I’m just angry I bought his book though to be honest.
Okay, so it HAS become about Jim Warner’s website, but that is all I will say about his stupid, Earth destroying website and book now. Let’s move on to what I really wanted to talk about, but had to use the title.
When I say “please convince me” here, I’m not saying “please convince me of gods, or God” and I’m not saying here “please convince me christianity is true”. No I’m going by a completely different angle.
The angle I’m asking for you to “please convince me” is “please convince me you aren’t 2 things”.
A) Please convince me you aren’t brainwashed?
B) Please convince me you aren’t stupid in believing your religion?
Let’s start off with the first one:
Please convince me you aren’t brainwashed!
1) Please tell me your reasons for being in your religion.
When I say “religion” I mean that that is your belief and any believer who tries to say “they aren’t religious, they hate religion, but have grace, they aren’t religious, they have a personal relationship with God”, or something stupid like that is just time wasting and deflecting. You know what I mean, so please don’t even start.
a) Were you born into your religion and raised with it?
b) Did you become religious later on?
c) Did you ever do any research into your religion, or did you just believe every word that you were told?
d) Did you ever think that the people who told you your religion might be wrong?
e) Did you ever research other religions?
f) Did you simply choose what was convenient and popular?
g) Did you become religious because you couldn’t mentally deal with the concept of death?
h) Did you become religious because you used religion as a mental self defense mechanism to deal with loss of loved ones?
i) Did you become religious because you couldn’t possibly conceive the fact that all the people you trusted who are religious are wrong?
j) Do you have any reason whatsoever that is logically a good reason that you choose your religion and are a believer in that religion?
k) Did you become religious because in your mind it is “the popular thing”?
l) If you ever researched did you ever check non-biased sources and go as far as you could go with it?
2) Now have you ever considered any of these questions, or issues?
a) Your religion is not factually true and has been shown repeatedly that your religion is a lie (well except scientology because I know nothing about it and am honestly saying it just sounds crazy)
b) If the entire basis for your being in your religion is that you believe God exists, then why aren’t you just a deist?
– There isn’t any truth, or evidence that your religion is real.
– There’s a lot of evidence that says your religion ISN’T real.
c) Have you ever thought that the only reason you are a follower of your religion is because you are brainwashed?
d) Do you believe that other people’s religions are brainwashing?
e) Is it impossible that your entire reason you are a devout follower, or borderline ready to leave follower of your religion is because of brainwashing?
f) Is it also impossible that the people who are convincing you are giving you the wrong information?
g) Is it impossible that your religion is wrong?
h) Do you ever find things in your religion that don’t make any sense?
i) Do you ever find it odd that you will always try and defend those things that don’t make any sense, when Atheists confront you with them, even if you don’t have an answer?
j) If every single thing in your religion were exposed as a lie and aliens proved to us that they were responsible for mankind and that Earth just formed naturally…. would you still believe your religion to be real?
k) If every single thing in your religion were exposed as a lie and aliens proved to us that they were responsible for mankind and that Earth just formed naturally…. would your life be any different?
l) If every single thing in your religion were exposed as a lie and aliens proved to us that they were responsible for mankind and that Earth just formed naturally…. would life be over?
m) If every single thing in your religion were exposed as a lie and aliens proved to us that they were responsible for mankind and that Earth just formed naturally…. would you love your family and friends any less?
n) Is the fact that you can’t mentally deal with your finite existence and can’t mentally accept that when you die, you really do die, have any influence on your religion?
Now this part:
3) Please convince me that you aren’t stupid for believing in your religion.
I don’t mean you are a stupid person in general, although you might be, but I am not talking about that. I’m talking about just being stupid where it comes to the reasons for your being religious.
a) Do you doubt every possibility that you’re wrong and not delusional?
b) Do you not see the thousands of different religions, sects and denominations from yours that show the exact same feelings, expression and belief about something that is completely different?
c) Do you not see that your refusal to accept that nothing happens after death is simply because you can’t mentally deal with that reality of your own mortality?
d) Do you not see that nothing in your entire bible makes any sense, or has any logical relevence?
e) Do you not see that religion is what is wrong with this world and is what is destroying it?
f) Do you not see that the countries with higher non-religious populations are the happiest, most peaceful, most economically successful countries in the world?
g) Do you ever research your religions stories from non-biased sources and see that they make no sense, have no truth and are based on other religions stories and are just recycled?
h) Do you ever read, or listen to any information that Atheists provide to you, or do you just ignore it?
i) Do you believe everything anyone tells you without any evidence, or proof about anything?
j) If someone tries to show you that your religion is a lie, do you immediately tune them out and not listen?
k) Do you ever think about how your life would be better if you weren’t religious?
m) Did you ever wonder why over 93% of the entire scientific world believes in science that DISPROVES that the Earth is less than 10,000 years old, when 30% of the world’s population is non-religious?
n) Did you ever wonder why over 95% of the entire scientific population of the world ACKNOWLEDGES the evidence of evolution?
o) Did you ever wonder how thousands of religions predated yours throughout history?
p) Did you ever wonder how the bible is based on an ENTIRE area that is less than .05% of Earth’s entire surface 2000 years ago but is supposed to be relevant to the entire world?
q) Did you ever wonder how if your religion is supposed to be about love, or peace, why there is so much bigotry and war done in Jesus name, and God’s name?
r) Do you not think it stupid that people try to prove the bible with the bible when there is no factually true thing in the bible?
4) Please answer All the above questions on a blog and send me the link.
a) Don’t waste my time if you are not going to be honest.
b) If you are simply going to say “rhetoric” over and over like that actually is an answer for anything, then again don’t waste my time.
c) If you simply deflect any question, or don’t answer, then you are demonstrating you are too cowardly and weak to defend your own religion AND YOU ARE BOTH STUPID AND BRAINWASHED!
