The other day I was speaking to one of my fellow atheists friends, and we were discussing random arguments and claims we've heard fundamentalists use when trying to argue that there is indeed a god. We came up with some of the most asinine reasons we've heard them use. I thought I would share a few "arguments" with you guys, and include your own stories too!
In High School I knew a creationist who actually believed that men had one less rib than women. He would count his ribs to make it look like he had one less rib than I did. I'd count mine, and his, and some how he would claim that I was cheating...even though if you suck in enough you can clearly count your own ribs. I told him he needed to get an x-ray of his chest and then count his ribs.
I had an English teacher my freshman year in High School who claimed that she saw a report about snakes, that at one point in time they had legs, which was proof that the snake in the garden of Eden actually walked around. I can only assume that she saw something about the evolution of snakes and lizards, and took it to another extreme.
I also love when people tell me I'm going to hell b/c I don't believe in god. C'mon...if I don't believe in god....don't you think I probably don't believe in hell either!? (Hades either for that matter! ;) )
