Created universe………..

Oh yeah, Jesus gets over 9,000 for that.


lukeprog September 26, 2010 at 6:44 pm

Yeah, that part is weird… or just ignorant of orthodox theology.

I just had an inner witness of Optimus Prime.

My belief in him is properly basic.

“All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being” (John 1:3).

Interestingly, they were both Jewish…

Jesus v Cthulhu

Current condition

Jesus: In heaven, so, dead, I guess?

Cthulhu: Dream filled slumber.


Jesus: Your soul.

Cthulhu: Your soul.

When he returns, he will

Jesus: Destroy world.

Cthulhu: Destroy world.

When he returns, he will reward his followers by

Jesus: Kill them first so they don’t have to witness destruction of world.

Cthulhu: Kill them first so they don’t have to witness destruction of world.

His followers

Jesus: Try to hasten the end of the world with prayer, ritualistic practices, and intervention in world politics.

Cthulhu: Try to hasten the end of the world with prayer and ritualistic practices.

Worship him by

Jesus: Glossolalia

Bossmanham, the John quote really isn’t inspirational or effective towards non-Christians. It is a bit creepy, though.


Rob September 26, 2010 at 10:43 pm

It is entirely right, rational, reasonable, and proper to believe in Optimus Prime without any evidence or argument at all.


shreddakj September 26, 2010 at 11:03 pm

Oh that is just excellent. Optimus Prime obviously would completely own Jesus.


Joel September 27, 2010 at 12:31 am

I agree that belief in Optimus Prime is properly basic.

If Optimus Prime existed, he would broadcast his identity into our cognitive faculties, and we would know, without justification, that HE IS.

Ergo, we do not need evidence to have rational belief in Optimus Prime. I call this Optimal Epistemology. Oh wait.


Jacopo September 27, 2010 at 1:53 am

As a wonderfully empathetic atheist, I disavow all and any who harshly criticize Optimus Prime. We should set a friendly tone for the discussion.

Besides, most critics of the existence of Optimus Prime have never even read (or heard of!) the most sophisticated work on his Matrix of Leadership. Ergo, I am a better atheist than you nyaah.

If somebody argues that Prime-based morality is false because Optimus Prime does not actually exist, I am going to complain that they haven’t first provided any arguments against the existence of Optimus Prime.

(cl, that one’s for you!)

Ok, that Cthulhu comparison is going to give me nightmares again. And I JUST STOPPED HAVING THEM


cl September 28, 2010 at 5:40 pm

cl, that one’s for you!

Funny Sad thing is, you’re really mocking yourself. Then again, such has persuaded before.


Hermes September 29, 2010 at 6:36 am

Cl, do you see any faults in the logic of the situation Luke presented? If you do, can you point out where they are?


Hermes September 29, 2010 at 8:47 am

Cl, additionally, MichaelPJ has responded thoughtfully and in detail to you in another thread. He has also posed a couple questions. As it has been a few days, his reply may have escaped your notice; http://commonsenseatheism.com/?p=11245

“Sad thing is, you’re really mocking yourself”

I agree Luke. And this comment really applies to ALL the individuals that try to mock my sensei! I say bring it! I’m resilient as ever, and have been trained by da best


ildi September 30, 2010 at 4:44 pm

vanilacrmcake: Bow to your sensei!


Hermes September 30, 2010 at 7:22 pm

In honor of the last video, I have to say that it’s important to have skills. Mad skills. Not just numchuck skills.


Jesus November 21, 2010 at 10:51 am

wow…looking at that chart; Prime would kick my ass!


Luke Muehlhauser November 21, 2010 at 3:30 pm

Yes he would, Jesus. Yes he would.


Matt January 19, 2011 at 12:45 am

I’m constantly surprised where this little chart of mine keeps popping up. It’s warms my bitter, twisted heart sometimes.
