Anton's syndrome. A person is struck blind but for a time they don't know it.
Seems impossible but it is real.

(Full disclosure) The link is entitled How To Tell You're An Atheist.
About Atheism denial.

I love the comment:

"I'd go to hell with a smile knowing I'll get to meet people like Dan Dennet, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, Einstein, etc. and that our only fault was trying to find out the truth. If God wants to play Hide 'n Seek and then burn the loser for eternity, then he can keep Heaven."

 :D

Yeah this was one of his better.
I liked the "you might be an atheist thing"
With the "if you believe God is just a concept then........ you are definitely an Atheist".

Typically I find that Dennett tends to walk very tenderly.
Of course the audience he was speaking to influenced the content.
I saw one where he was with Rick Warren and I thought he just threw him softballs over and over.

When JW's come to my door I tell them that my god made their god.That really foxes them.You see, they don't expect a bigger story than theirs.
If you believe you can tell me what to think.
I believe I can tell you where to go.

Hell for me would be having to live with a bunch of Christian, Jesus loving, God bothering bigots!

Hold on! Am I already here?

oh fuck!

Or if not, then my previous statement is a paradox!

Confused dudes!

In my religious days, I used to engage JWs by asking them in, then confounding them with bible verses they never studied, but where critical to their dogma.  Lotsa fun. The next week, the senior of the previous week's pair visited with a more senior (i.e. area director) to debate with me. After that, they give up. See, their bible knowledge is by wrote, not by reading from end to end to get the context.

Now, I just say "I sacrifice babies". I haven't seen them in years....

Yeah I enjoyed debate with them at my front door for a few Saturdays in a row....I asked them for there bible so I could study it...they eventually gave me one for free...then I used to quote it at them using the power of logic and reasoning!

They stopped coming!

Too easy. Send more for me to play with.... :)

Nowadays they don't even realize that their central beef against mainstream Christianity (i.e. the Trinity) is "edited out" of their own New World Translation... but yet they agree to base their discussion on the King James version.  Shooting fish in a barrel...

One tried to stop me on the way into my local supermarket.

He asked me what three things I enjoyed about life.

Having just got up and being on a mission to find breakfast my answer was simply

"Women, booze, drugs!"

He didn't seem to want to talk to me after that.

Actually my local JW's stopped knocking at my door after I placed four human skull models in my front windows, oh apart from the week with Halloween in it.

In Scotland,going round dressed up at Halloween  is called guising.And you don't get something for nothing.Kids are expected to perform a party piece for their sweets.Most are awful but some are quite good.Never the less,they all perform.When I came home to Oxfordshire,I realised what a bunch of lazy,unimaginative and demanding scroats the kids round here are.
