He’s Australian, and a Lawyer… And an Atheist Fool

from Smithsonian :Folio from a Koran :9th-10th...

So when the news reports that he used a page from the Bible and a page from the Qur’an to roll cigarettes in order to find which tastes better, no one should be surprised.

An Australian lawyer, Alex Stewart, has smoked pages torn from the Koran and the Bible, posting the video on YouTube just days after an American Pastor’s threat to burn the Muslim holy book caused worldwide outrage.

What a moron. But of course, he is an atheist. Who works for a University.

Mr Stewart, a member of an atheist group in Brisbane, has begun a period of leave following a meeting with his employers today. He insists he wasn’t smoking drugs in the video but had sprinkled grass cuttings into the rolled up pages. “The university is obviously extremely, extremely unhappy and disappointed that this sort of incident should occur,” Queensland University of Technology vice-chancellor Peter Coaldrake said.

Hopefully he’ll be fired for his gross stupidity.

“There is no need for this kind of thing, just to create disunity and disharmony among people living in Australia,” said Sheik Muhammad Wahid, president of the Islamic Association of Australia.

But that’s precisely what atheists and fools in general want to do- create disharmony. They find their greatest joy in it.  But of course folly and atheism go hand in hand- ‘the fool has said in his heart, there is no God’.

    not all atheists actually proclaim there is no god Jim. They’re just non believers. I think even perhaps some unbelievers – what I call those who used to believe – don’t even necessarily proclaim there is no god. Your definition is naturally far too rigid, just as many people view all Christianity as fundamentalist twaddle. I don’t know why you insist on persisting but never mind….

    Grass cuttings? Yeah right pull the other one. What a dipstick. A dangerous dipstick I think. Some stupid people ought to be locked out of sight.

    … actually the only atheists who shout out ‘there is no god’ are vocal american atheists (not all) such as those who actively join atheist groups like the CFI (umbrella for atheism) and hijack humanism and turn it into atheism. Mind you that happened in the UK too – look at Dawkins and the so called British Humanist Society. Yeah right. Humanism actually is not about atheism – it’s origins are predominantly from Christian thinkers. Even Shakespeare and Marlowe are labelled as atheists (by these fundamentalist atheists) but atheism didn’t really exist then. They were both more questioners and doubters, poking fun at literal interpretation basically, but they didn’t disbelieve in ultimate reality. On another issue, I don’t really know what my religious views are – I’m certainly not anti religious but I’ve never been a believer – just fascinated in the history of belief… I need proof and nobody will ever provide proof or disproof of God or no god … so my religious views are brandy and oranges (actually they are my current political views) – my religious views are ‘Stop All the Clocks and go to the beach’. I like W.H. Auden….

    There is no such thing as a fundamentalist atheist, Steph, as there are no fundamentals to atheism. All one atheist has in common with another is a lack of belief. However, there are stupid, obnoxious, irrational, and intolerant atheists (because they are people too, and people are generally all the above, but in varied levels of them). Unfortunately, the reason why atheists are so loud in this country is because for a long time, people associated atheism with evil. This is a rather silly notion. Jim can hate on atheists for theological reasons, but he would be hard pressed to say anything negative about atheists who work for the NAS, or the group Doctors without Borders, or atheists who regularly volunteer at homeless shelters and soup kitchens, who give to charity because they believe its right (not because a pastor or a book says they should). So while I do not agree with this individuals’ actions, his being an atheist has nothing to do with the actions he took. He was clearly a moron and he just happened to be an atheist. I’m sure he owned some automobile too. With Jim’s logic here, we should consider all Buick owners to be fools because this nimrod might have owned one (in truth I don’t know what car he owns, or if he rides a bike, but you get my point).

    I nickname atheists ‘fundamentists’ when they are former ‘Christians’ who have rejected a fundamentalist Christianity and assume those principles into their atheism, and also cannot see Christianity beyond their former fundamentalist faith. In my opinion those to whom I attritute this nickname constitute a small proportion in the wider world.


  5. steph says:

    In fact I normally adopt the term I learned – fungusmentalist in order to differentiate itself from a group with fundamental beliefs. Although it does fundamentally reject Christianity outright as a fundamentalist belief.

    …and of course there is NT Wrong – I think in the context of talking about Avalos, Wrong talked about ‘batting for the other side’ and ‘once a fundamentalist, always a fundamentalist’ – it’s all in relation to method and approach.
