Someone described them as basically the only form of Alien life on this planet as they are unlike anything else. I can see why

Most complete memelord in the World
I saw in a Hybrid Librarian video, a phrase/question that stuck with me: "We often think about what space has to offer, but we don't even know what's under our feet..."

Are you guys seriously FIGHTING OVER WHO THE FUCK MADE THIS AWESOME OCTOPUS AND CUTTLEFISH LIKE COME ON. Maybe the devil made them and your whole argument is invalid o.O think about that bitches. Lol "Our world wasn't made by some hippie in the clouds" lol. So if you continue with your little weirdness over the religion thingy i'll just assume it's non-sense. Every time i loo this up i see your religion B.S so stop (P.S I'm atheist but i bet it didn't take me to tell you but you just assumed k?)

Look, I'm a God-believer too. However, this video's comment section is not the place to talk about it. If one wants to talk about this stuff, please do it via PM, okay? I'm sure Lavos2007 is open to them. Now then, let's observe the mighty camouflage abilities of the octopus.

Well, as a scientist, a Christian, and a huge fan of nature- including octopi- let's stop this needless quarreling and mud-slinging.

mind you my comments on the octopus were well over 2 weeks ago
13 июля 2013, 01:01 Комменитровать
you obviously missed my comments praising the wonderous nature of the octopus, and i made atheist comments on this video, i appreciate the wonderment of life, one big reason i value this one single existance i am given also the atheist stuff only came up due to some religious assholes claiming octopi are "a creation of god and thats why their wonderful", so put 2+2 together, i beleive in evolution so for me its blasphemy to claim god is responsible for all the wonderful things of earth/nature
13 июля 2013, 01:00 Комменитровать
by thaat logic for me to drop a coin off the empire state building and have it fall at a given calculated speed due to its weight god would have to make me throw it off, yeah...sure... keep dreamin pal, if your false deity helps you sleep at nigth then keep beleiving, but some of us humans prefer to beleive in stuff thats actually true
13 июля 2013, 00:54 Комменитровать
so cause and effect is proof of god? wow, your a real special kind of stupid huh? also just because theres no shadow without light doesnt mean god created the sun or other stars ya idiot, and honestly, god doesnt exist, or at least theres no viable evidence or proof for it, hence i choose not to delude myself in fantasies of magical beings that claim to be benevolent but if you read the actual entire bible youd realize hes quite cruel and vindictive, but theres still plenty of stuff on earth :D

I came here hoping to see plenty of intelligent comments about the wonderment of life, praising the octopus and its abilities, and jokes relating to the video. Instead, a bunch of atheists doing what they do, with no regard to the subject matter of the video. *sigh* Oh well. The two top-voted comments are funny and witty, at least.

"We Atheists never poke our noses into anybody's business." Ooh, I wouldn't say that. I speak from personal experience. Anyway, why are you talking about this on a video of an Octopus? Shouldn't we be discussing the usefulness of camouflage and the wonders of life and evolution, and/or at least comparing our thoughts/feelings with those of the audience?

btw that episode in question is probly hosted on more than 1 channel here, youd be surprised how many channels love to host The Atheist Experience, its a really fun thing to watch clips of here, you get to see just how plain stupid religion can make people and frequently at that as theres not too many episodes with callers that are respectable but one i must mention was called "gavin the cool christian" you should def see that one, its an example of a (sadly) rare religious occurence
17 июня 2013, 06:57 Комменитровать
like this one horribly brainwashed lady that called into one of TheAtheistExperience eppisodes, she immediatly opened with "if yall atheists dont beleive in god, you must worship the devil", after several attempts of calling atheissts Satan Worshipers with hosts correcting her and being rather kind about it for once, shes like "well my pastor said anyone who doesnt worship god is satan worship" to which they said called her pastor a Liar, i wouldve also called him a Dick if it were me there >.>

they been doin that for centuries, im staarting to get sick of it though, cus despite all the horrid tings theyve done to keep power over the centuries eventually the lost the bility to contain and oppress science which has done almost nothing but good for humankind, its getting more stupid in modern times, people so brainwashed with doctrine or other things they werent born idiots but they became idiots willfully, and thats the worst kind of Stupid
