I get the joke, it give a giggle. But most of those atheists in social media are starting to sound like bronies.   
"Look at me, i'm atheist. I'm atheist and i am better than you and you have to respect that but i dont because i'm atheist."   
Well, i'm christian, i dont follow the bible, i believe in evolution, my last IQ test was 135 and love metal. But i dont try to make people believe in God and i'm pretty sure he does not care if you do, so if i respect your right to not believe and i'm suppose to be the stupid one for believing, then my friend, something is very wrong.

How can you be a christian and not believe in the bible?
User avatar #102 to #72 - drakevil (04/15/2014) [-]
It's simple. We realize that "church" is the part where humans use of faith to get rich.
And "faith" is to believe that there's something greater than everything.
Bible = Church.
Not being a jackass = faith.

news flash.

most christians believe they are christians to just "fit in" with the majority. I know because i thought i was christian too, until i recently discovered im actually pretty agnostic and think the bible is full of **** .


but dont tell that to those who believe its physically possible to survive in a whales mouth for a few days underwater. or that your strength lies within your hair and somehow that gives you magic power.

What am i to say? The universe is the closest thing to a god we will ever get.
#149 to #67 - anon (04/15/2014) [-]
Then why the **** are you a Christian if you don't believe in anything it actually teaches?

If you are picking and choosing from the Bible then obviously you don't believe it's the pure, infallible truth. And if it's not the pure, infallible truth its obviously not the word of god.

If anything it would be more accurate to call yourself a Deist than a Christian.
User avatar #193 to #149 - drakevil (04/15/2014) [-]
I'm baptized, so technically i'm still a christian, like it not. Also, i hate the "Deist" term, is like a hispter that believes in God.
"I'm Deist. You probably never heard about it. I dont follow the bible, is too mainstream."
Also, so far as i know, and i could be wrong, but the term "Christian" refers to who believes in Christ, and not necessarily who goes every sunday to give money to a multibillionary institution. Sorry if i'm being to much of a jerk.

I'm a Christian and I honestly don't understand why people hate us so.

I understand the Westboro Bapti-bitches are everywhere and Jehooves Witnesses are knocking at your damn door all the time, but that's all anyone focuses on, is the radical dick Christians, (I wouldn't even call them Christ-like) and not the ones who care.

I try not to judge people (I leave that to God) and in fact have a few gay, atheist, Muslim, Sikh, and friends from other religions. We can get along. I will never stop loving my friends and I would never treat them different than any other human being, but they know that I will never stop asking to pray with them and inviting them to my Church.

Other Christians need to listen up as well. You don't need to yell at these people (Yes they are people) and just be a friend to them. When Jesus ministered to the sinners, he didn't judge them for they knew what they had done. He did stand up and speak out against the Pharisees though, Christians that were "Righteous" and followed all the moral laws. Why? Because they judged the people and looked down on them because they were Christians.

We are all people, just treat eachother like it.

Because omfg, that's what's cool now. Christianity is a big target. Yes, some Christians are assholes, but assholes come in every religion or lack thereof. Basically, it's the "in" thing, now.

Hey man, don't go throwing that "we" around. A lot of people are atheist because they just prefer science and fact over faith and belief. Not because they hate it.
User avatar #164 to #150 - imabeagoodguy (04/15/2014) [-]
I honestly don't see why people have to prefer science and fact over faith and belief. Makes it sound like everyone who has faith in anything/ believes in anything hates logic and refuses to believe facts. Personally I don't see why they can't co-exist. I'm a christian who believes in evolution because I can clearly see that there is truth to it, but at the same time I've seen enough to make me believe in God.
User avatar #165 to #164 - wilfredfanforever (04/15/2014) [-]
I'm the same as you, man. I believe in science and fact, yet also believe in a higher power.
User avatar #155 to #150 - myjeren (04/15/2014) [-]
Explain how hatred of the religion would not fit into that.
User avatar #159 to #155 - wilfredfanforever (04/15/2014) [-]
Just because you don't agree with something or have a different preference doesn't mean you have a burning hatred for it. I'm sure there are people who hate Christianity and are atheist, but that's not always the case. Some people just choose hard facts and evidence provided by award winning scientists that they can rely on as opposed to the men in long white robes who tell you to repent and beg forgiveness for being human.
User avatar #174 to #159 - myjeren (04/15/2014) [-]
So you're fine with people believing and accepting the innumerous barbaric acts featured in several brands of religious text? Quit playing pacifist. Religion has ****** a lot of things up.
User avatar #192 to #174 - wilfredfanforever (04/15/2014) [-]
I'm not saying it hasn't made **** worse or started some bad **** , and you can't expect anyone to follow everything in religious texts, that's just silly. As long as you are a decent human and do the right thing, that should be fine. Religion has it's pros and cons, just like anything else. Times have changed, mostly anyway. There isn't anymore blood sacrifices or bartering off daughters.
User avatar #140 to #122 - LloydIrving (04/15/2014) [-]
"hate the religion and what it does"

But why though? I can understand certain individuals within the religion, but why the whole religion? If believers stuck more to the teachings of Christ, they'd be a lot better for it. Others who find ways to pick and choose/skew the teachings are typically the ones who mess it up for the rest of us anyways.

I really don't see a reason to hate the religion or "what it does" (which I don't even know what you mean by that to be honest), but people are fallible and will do what they do.
#145 to #140 - anon (04/15/2014) [-]
Encourages intolerance, divides nations and cultures further. Teaches barbaric morals (which people just pick and choose from anyway) such as beating your wife is okay (see Islam). Discourages intellectualism. The basis of most religions seems to be "follow this exclusively or suffer if you don't." No room for questioning, not to mention there are so many logical fallacies and inconsistencies it would take hours to point them all out.

Religion starts wars, provides reason for thousands of crimes, indoctrinates inaccurately, etc etc.
User avatar #191 to #144 - LloydIrving (04/15/2014) [-]
People start wars. I can barely remember even one war started solely for religion. Why is the US in the Middle East? Oil, not religion. Why did the Catholic Church start the Inquisitions? Power, not religion. Some of these use religion as a justification, to be sure, but it's almost never the primary driving reason.

Take Christianity. Sure Christians are supposed to believe the Bible as fact, but that does not mean we are to follow every rule pointed out. The whole purpose is to believe in and try to be like Christ., who broke quite a few religious laws himself.

It's not the ideologies presented that are bad, it's the way people try to twist them to their own benefit that is.
User avatar #123 to #122 - skrynox (04/15/2014) [-]
Well just like Christians, there are assholes of every religious group.

I've personally never seen the point of worshiping God, nor understood how people could believe the Bible. That's... pretty much the end of what I feel about Christians. It doesn't effect my perspective of someone if they believe in that, unless they're trying to shove it in my face that believing in God is the way to go, like Goverment does with their whole 'And God Bless', trying to please the 'masses' even though the founding fathers never wanted anything like that.

Went off on a tangent there... Bottom line is: As long as you aren't shoving it in my face, I don't care of you're a christian.

Is it wrong to care about their souls? My friends don't mind at all because they know that I'm really reaching out to them because I love them.

What makes this funnier is that Jesus was a real person.

Son of god maybe not but real person yes.
#23 to #9 - deezknuts (04/15/2014) [-]
Well yeah, he definitely happened

i mean to deny that he existed is to deny the cultural influence that resulted from his existence. The truth is that something had to have happened, all that hooplah coulnd't have come from nothing. But he was probably just an ancient version of Gandhi or MLK, basically saying bitches need to love each other.
User avatar #36 to #23 - noblexfenrir (04/15/2014) [-]
Well be careful there, was there a cultural influence during the period where christianity became widespread? Yes, but this is in no way indication that he was a real person. The evidence is very scarce for him being so and the lack of records for many aspects of his life and he himself leave little support to his existence.

With the amount of doom and savior prophecy spouters at the time, it's not far fetched that the idea of a man claiming to be the son of god was thought of, and then fit to the mold set by the old testament (With picking and choosing of certain moral codes the writers had that disagreed with the OT), Bang boom, you got yourself a messiah.
User avatar #40 to #36 - deezknuts (04/15/2014) [-]
but its like:

we assume hopmer existed because there's a book with his name on it

Actually it's generally conceded that we don't know enough to actually say Homer existed, scholars usually say Homer is a man whose life we know little about, or a group of authors expanding over a certain time period.

I really don't care since I talk more about the works attributed to Homer, than Homer himself/Themselves. But if we had to address the question did Homer exist? I'd have to answer we don't have enough evidence to confirm that.

Concerning events such as mass killings and historic events, these are confirmed through a number of independent sources. Noah's arc has essentially, 1 source. World was 1 has personal and public writings, audio, and millions of independent accounts ranging across the globe.

And i'm getting sick of everyone just asuming it's proven he lived cause many others sayd so. And i would love to read about it if you can find it.

There were several contemporary accounts, the, "he didn't exist," claim goes against almost all of what scholars of antiquity agree on, that he did exist. He was written about by Josphesus and Tactius and Pliney the Younger, to give a few examples.
User avatar #126 to #88 - YllekNayr ONLINE (04/15/2014) [-]
Pliny's account is at the very best a second hand oblique reference, while Tacitus' solitary passage proves he's heard of Christianity.

Honestly, someone as significant as the historical figure of jesus should have a great deal of material mentioning him, even if it were from a negative point of view.
User avatar #127 to #126 - Shenanigins (04/15/2014) [-]
Josephus' was from a negative point of view: the books in the bible can be counted as first hand accounts, (albeit from a biased source). Regardless, there's plenty of proof: more proof than a lot of the other contemporaries of Jesus as well.

User avatar #32 to #30 - YllekNayr ONLINE (04/15/2014) [-]
Dude, the fact that something COULD be real hypothetically does not have any bearing on whether it actually is or not.

If it couldn't be real, then sure.
But something having the possibility of existing means jack **** til we have a reason for thinking it's real.

Basically, until we get a reason to think Jesus was a real person, let alone a god incarnate, he can be safely dismissed as fictitious.
#35 to #32 - drdisrespect (04/15/2014) [-]
im not relegious so i dont know alot, but there is alot of text about jesus which isnt proof, but still suggests his existence

so youre saying that since jesus is mentioned in a book with fictional pieces, you think he is fictional as well
User avatar #56 to #48 - YllekNayr ONLINE (04/15/2014) [-]
No. I'm saying that there is a lack of credible sources that mention Jesus. The Bible also mentions Jerusalem, but I'm not saying that Jerusalem is fictional, since you can find Jerusalem in other texts, and in real life.

The Bible is not a credible source because of its contents. Jesus is only mentioned in the Bible. To believe the character of Jesus existed, you need a credible source. Find me one.

So you're saying the mature, or 'grown up' thing is to let children with appendicitis die because their parents believe it's the will of a (probably) fictional being?
www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2507563/Faith-healing-parents-guilty-murder-2nd-child-dies-pneumonia.html

You know why atheists bitch about religion so much? Because bitching doesn't hurt anybody. It might even save lives. Yes, I know such things are pretty extreme, but it's mainly the religious fanatics that atheists bitch about in the first place
#130 to #84 - anon (04/15/2014) [-]
Those people are idiots, but they have the right to be idiots. They had TWO children die from their negligence, that happened in the US. They should not have been allowed to take care of the SECOND child. The law is just as guilty as the 'parents'.
All atheists do is bitch and act all high and mighty. In the US it's freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. All the atheists who bitch do, is hurt their own cause. Look at Jehovah's Witnesses bitchy atheists are just as bad.
#148 to #130 - anon (04/15/2014) [-]
Did you seriously just quote that jizz stain Rick Santorum?

And are you seriously saying it's okay to let two children die just because of some parent's beliefs? That it's justified by their "freedom of religion"? That they have the right to put others in harms way just because we as citizens are too afraid of being insensitive to beliefs?

Imagine if schools followed that saying. Nothing would ever be taught ever.

Religion is dumb. It's not documented well providing little evidence for any of its claims, it's often the result of different ideas being merged to fit cultural needs (did you know Jesus WASN'T born on the 25th and that the bible you read today is a filtered version of a much larger collection of letters?)
