Makes Sense

by Richard Dawkins posted on February 16, 2013 04:27PM GMT

 

This morning I posted a series of tweets, making fun of some of religion’s absurdities, each one ending with the ironic phrase “Makes sense”.  Almost immediately this started a trend, and several hundred other people joined in, also ending their tweets with the same ironic phrase.  I retweeted a minority of these (about one in five) and this minority is collected here, together with the original ones that I wrote myself.

A perfect god created the solar system; failed to remove the thousands of rogue asteroids, thus leaving us vulnerable to devastating impacts. Makes sense.

@RichardDawkins It’s my right to discriminate against you based on my religious beliefs & you’re at fault for criticising that! #makesSense

You have a choice because God gave you free will.¹

¹ Oh BTW, you’ll suffer forever if you don’t believe in him and do what he says.

@RichardDawkins Infallible, omnipresent, omniprescient god didn’t spot Eve talking to Serpent, whom he presumably also created. #makesSense

@RichardDawkins First 4 of 10 Commandments pander god’s vanity, with no mention of rape, slavery or discrimination in remainder. #makesSense

The little god in the believers’ brains says it is hidden in the far reaches of time and space, – so believers pass on the message, that those seeking to refute its claim of external material existence, should look out there (where the omnipotent sky-fairies live): – with inadequate instruments – Makes (theistic) sense!

Richard Dawkins ‏@RichardDawkins God couldn’t think of a better way to forgive the sin of Adam (who never existed) than to have his son (aka himself) executed. Makes sense.

This Tweet is by far my favourite, simply because it demonstrates to people of “reason” the humble state of your mind Professor and the delusion you must be suffering from, to openly assert your knowledge of G_D’s mind…knowing what He thinks and doesn’t think.

Bravo Professor, you have excelled in making “reason” seem very attractive and let’s not mention scientific inquiry! Ha-ha! No wonder Professor John Lennox is having you for breakfast, lunch, & dinner! You are a mere plaything for a true intellectual Master such as he!

Cheers, Daniel Moszkowicz (TKofC).

My holy book is the exact word of god AND an allegorical work, depending on what I need to “prove” when discussing with someone. Makes sense.

“The Bible” – all the different contradictory versions and mistranslations of it – are all Trooooo!
The New Testament Gospels were written by illiterate disciples years after they were dead. –

OKAY… So you are ascertaining that your so called god didn’t have a brain, if he/she/it had a brain then he/she/it would definitely think… Because a brain can only think… This post of yours makes absolute sense and is a And FYI, what a brain thinks can be ascertained by the ensuing action, so its is a simple conclusion based on the your religious text which says the god sacrificed himself to himself to appease himself so that he could save humanity from himself for himself….. #makes hell lot of sense.

Some guys came up with a story. Other guys took the story and begun to believe it, some literally. Richard says the story is stupid. Now a bunch of guys are having a fight about whether the story is real or not.

I don’t know whether this makes sense or not, what I know for sure is that none of it has anything to do with God.

The fact that God is omniscient/omniprescient does not imply at all that my life story is already written. So I have free-will and make my own moral choices. Makes sense.

This book is the word of God, is infallible, and is to be taken literally. Except when it contradicts itself or we choose to leave that author’s works out. Makes sense.

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.

The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain more than the armies of Hitler and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945.
