All autistic kids are atheists, and atheism is form of autism, says association head

soycrates:

thezombiemessia:

What an absolute load of shite.

I mean, seriously:

“They need to develop feelings and learn to form empathy with others. They need to understand why normal people do what they do. As a result of that, they would need to understand that there is a creator, to whom the people pray to and believe in; and they need to understand and internalize that. That way a section of faith can be formed in their brains,” Kaya was quoted as saying.”

And:

“We cannot expect a child who cannot recognize a picture to recognize God. We need to help the autistic child recognize objects through therapy by targeting areas of senses in the brain,” Kaya said.”

Fehmi Kaya can go fuck himself. Seriously. I’m not even going to bother being polite about this utter nonsense, this guy can just go shove something exceedingly sharp up his rectum, and deal with that.

The forced indoctrination of children, the assumption that atheism isn’t “normal” and that theism is “normal”, the stupidity of the entire claim, the failure to recognise Autism as a *spectrum* rather than a catch-all (for instance stating that an autistic person couldn’t recognise a picture? Fuck off.)

No, this person is idiotic, wrong, and just enforcing stereotypes not only of Atheism but of Autism, which is just going to lead to further issues.

How about instead of forcing people to “gain faith” this guy could focus on providing evidence for his asinine claims (and that includes the god hypothesis).

Just-in: a head of health and education associations for children in Turkey thinks that atheist children are all autistic.

We know what he’s really trying to say “Atheists are stupid and just don’t understand the world enough, otherwise they would believe in God”, both equating secular morality and autism with lack of intelligence.

“I meant that they were disabled, in a way, like a hearing disability, because they are not aware of why people believe. I did not say that all autistic people are atheists,” Kaya said, adding that faith would “normally” exist in kids. 

There are children strong and smart enough to wait for evidence rather than blindly accepting what they are told. And they are being treated as if they are defunct or ill. This man knows absolutely nothing about autism, either, as he’s using it as synonymous for ignorance.

It’s just… *sigh* really disgusting.

As an atheist who has worked in the service industry (and am all too familiar with the shit servers have to deal with), I heartily endorse this endeavor.

As a father who had a daughter in the food service industry, I second this endorsement.

I think that most servers won’t understand the reference and that this is some probably-unnecessary posturing on the part of atheists… (A note of ‘I’m tipping 40%, because I’m an Atheist’ is more readily understandable and much clearer in the ‘and that’s why you should associate atheists with awesome and not with Richard Dawkins’ message)
But hey, whatever gets people to tip well is awesome!

They took off their shoes and socks and sat down on the mossy rocks  at the edge of the stream, dipping their feet in the cold water and  feeling the shock of it invigorate their blood.
“I’m hungry,” Will said.
“Me too,” said Lyra, though she was also feeling more than that,  something subdued and pressing and half-happy and half-painful, so that  she wasn’t quite sure what it was.
They unfolded the cloth and ate some bread and cheese. For some  reason their hands were slow and clumsy, and they hardly tasted the  food, although the bread was floury and crisp from the hot  baking-stones, and the cheese was flaky and salty and very fresh.
Then Lyra took one of those little red fruits. With a fast-beating heart, she turned to him and said, “Will…”
And she lifted the fruit gently to his mouth.
She could see from his eyes that he knew at once what she meant, and  that he was too joyful to speak. Her fingers were still at his lips, and  he felt them tremble, and he put his own hand up to hold hers there,  and then neither of them could look; they were confused; they were  brimming with happiness.
Like two moths clumsily bumping together, with no more weight than  that, their lips touched. Then before they knew how it happened, they  were clinging together, blindly pressing their faces toward each other.
“Like Mary said,” he whispered, “you know straight away when you like  someone, when you were asleep, on the mountain, before she took you  away, I told Pan…”
“I heard,” she whispered, “I was awake and I wanted to tell you the  same and now I know what I must have felt all the time: I love you,  Will, I love you…”
The word love set his nerves ablaze. All his body thrilled  with it, and he answered her in the same words, kissing her hot face  over and over again, drinking in with adoration the scent of her body  and her warm, honey-fragrant hair and her sweet, moist mouth that tasted  of the little red fruit.
Around them there was nothing but silence, as if all the world were holding its breath.

Well, this is awkward… Bill O’Reilly said: Planned Parenthood should “be funded like Catholic charities, by individuals who believe in Planned Parenthood’s mission.” Take a look at the organization Catholic Charities’ financial documents, and you’ll find that in 2010 62% of their total income was government revenue — $2.9 billion that year.



Bill O’Reilly does not care about facts. Not one damn bit.

As a comparison, here is Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report. Does Bill-O want more government funding for Planned Parenthood?

Woman walking into an abortion clinic gives Flying Spaghetti Monster pamphlet to anti-choice protester. Anti-choicer assaults her. Woman calls police, gets abortion, then blogs about the experience.
