Perhaps someone should ask him why he worships a Roman god at the beginning of each new year and Thor every Thursday.

Plus Wodin on Wednesday, Frigga on Friday, Saturn on Saturday, Tyr on Tuesday, celestial bodies on Sunday and Monday…

So does he believe all Jews in the West are actually Christians because they use the Common Era?

This guy doesn’t “think,” of course. That’s WAY beyond him.

Oddly enough most of my Christian friends & family don’t “believe” that I’m an athiest. This is not uncommon, though this guy’s reasoning is beyond stupid.

My guess is they are taught how bad/dangerous atheists are and when they still like you it must mean that you are just hiding your faith.

That’s funny. I’m an atheist and I’ve always felt that there were no true believers (except lunatics of course.) I just can’t imagine that there aren’t times in a religious person’s life when they contemplate death and the universe at large and go, “How can God truly exist? Where is He and where does He come from? Is there really life after death? And if so will it be me, my actual consciousness, or just some silly notion of ‘spirit’ – an essence that does not contain any of my memories or emotions or personality? Where was God when the solar system formed? When the earth was just a barren ball of matter with no organisms on it, let alone humans? Where was God when dinosaurs roamed the earth, when humans weren’t even a glimmer on the horizon? And where will God be when the sun eventually swells and consumes the earth, and then dies? The universe is too vast for a God to exist. Or at least for the narrow human idea of God. I guess I’m an atheist now. Shit.”

“Whether you believe in Him or not, every time you sign your calendar, you write down the day’s date, you’re saying He’s here,” Robertson continued.

Moron.

Robertson also said that in life-and-death situations, atheism ceases to exist. “Because if you get in a serious bind, the first thing you’re going to do is look around and say, ‘Oh (God) please help me.’”

He is just trolling, please ignore the fool.

“Because there’s too much documentation. Our calendars are based on Jesus Christ.”

Ladies and gents, I give you the Republican base in all its willfully ignorant glory.

If I wanted to know how to make and sell little doodads that help you sound like a duck, I would listen to what this gentleman had to say. For pretty much any other subject he’s not the guy.

I thought the true Christians – you know, the persecuted minority – were railing against the rest of America. I guess Sy gave the store away to let the rest of us in on the joke. Just kidding, those persecuted Christians!

Not to mention Julius Caesar (July), Augustus Caesar (August), Mars (March), Maia (May), Juno (June) and the numbers 7, 8, 9, and 10 (September, October, November, December).

Dionysius Exiguus was the one who started numbering the years AD and BC, and he only did that in 525. He was also off by about five years.

He’s attempting to show people how goldurned smart he is and in doing so he revealed his stupidity.
