God that ******* irritates me so ******* much. To think how ******* stupid people are. I'm Christian, but I believe that evolution is real, just caused by God. It truly makes me sad to know that there are people out there who truly believe that the earth is 6000 years old and God created the Earth in 7 days. Just the ignorance of people is so ******* irritating. The Bible is not scientific fact. It is a guideline, a rulebook almost, using stories to make more sense to you (originally the people it was meant to teach way ******* back when) but is not meant to be taken literally. It's like Jesus' teachings. He used parables. He didn't actually want you to cut your ******* eye out if you looked at someone lustfully. He's just saying "Don't look at people lustfully". Go **** yourselves all you stupid **** ignorant Christians who won't listen to any type of reason and obviously have no sort of any Bible study or experience,
A fellow ******* Christian.

How can you still believe in god and jesus if you think evolution is real. If you believe in evolution you believe in science and therefore you believe that humans dont have free will. Any religion states that humans have a choice; you have to ask for forgiveness for something you didnt choose, (you didnt choose your life, and the mere concept of conciousness states that you are just a simulation, stating that "you" dont have freewill would be contradicting my previous statement, but i dont have any way to put it in words)
The fact that we as humans think we have freewill and that we want the best for ourselves is just a part of our evolution and that we have to care about ourselves first. We are somewhat lonedogs in that sense compared to ants for example.

The randomized factors in my life has led me to write this, this isnt my choice, but as a human i have to be able to express my point of view. If you get upset i understand, you didnt choose your life or feelings either.

mfw reading your post.    
   
Initial reactions aside, I, being a Protestant Christian, believe that God caused all of the "random" genetic changes which led to human beings and that He is "in the details" as the saying goes; we have choice in our lives (which most religions actually believe in, sorry to have to correct you there) and the choices which God makes are the ones which are only controllable by a supreme, divine being.    
   
I'm not up for much of a debate tonight, but if you have a simple question I'll answer it.   
   
Further reading for your betterification: Descartes' Meditations. Start at the first meditation, and actually read through up until the sixth. Around the 4th he proves how God can exist in a scientific world.

He sounds very Neo-Freudian. I disagree with Freud's philosophy. Auguste Comte has a very interesting Law of Three Stages which discusses why not rejecting religion is necessary for a society which wants to continue advancements.

my parents are really religious my mom even more; yet she belives in evolution and doesnt care about gay people, she goes every week to church and prays every night. My dad is a really smart and rational guy so i have asked him a few times why he believes in god, he told me that all the science only makes him believe more in a god because something so beautiful and perfect as nature can only in his opinion come from something bigger than us

Wow how can you be so quick to dismiss her views but still believe in a God without evidence? You are both equally foolhardy.

>Gets irritated by people believing in creationism
>Believes a God created everything

One doesn't "believe" in evolution like you say, evolution is FACT. No amount of faith or believe in evolution or any other path of life is relevant because evolution did happen and is ongoing.

You're not a Christian, you're an uncultured and delusional piece of **** who refuses to stop being stupid. Do you know what "Christian" even means? It does not mean to simply follow randomly selected moral values from the New Testament, but actually respecting the Bible a s a whole, thinking everything written in there is real, especially the existence of Jesus of Nazareth and his Divine nature. He actual;ly wanted you to cut your ******* eye out, because most people in the Bible were immoral, primitive pieces of ****.

TL;DR JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK KILLING AND STEALING ARE BAD, IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU'RE A CHRSTIAN, EDUCATE YOURSELF, YOU PIECE OF ****!

You're not a christian. You have your own interpretation of the bible, Jesus and god. Religion is nothing more but a group of deluded idiots.

You say that evolution is caused by god. That's like saying evolution is caused by Santa. Both are fictional characters. If I said that I believed the world was created by a tiny communist duck with a top hat, you'd probably laugh at me and call me crazy. Claiming that god exists is just as crazy. You claim knowledge of a being that you also claim you know nothing about and no one can possible know anything about. That's crazy.

If religion never happened, and someone today explained to a doctor what god was, they'd be put in a mental institution. Why? Because it's crazy.

I apologize for this short argument, I can't do much more with the character limit.

Thank you!, This is exactly like my words.
I just can't understand how some people can't understand that bible is written by men, and it is written using parables and myths, just to clarify its teachings to more easily to
their own time contemporaries. But what they did not take account of that it looks like the evolution is going backwards and future people are getting more stupid...

I honestly believe organised religion as a whole is the most arrogant thing humans have ever done. An organised religion actually tells me what God meant and what Jesus meant when they have no idea what he meant, there are a million different interpretations I could take from the bible but the fact that another human is telling me what the creator of the universe meant when they only have their own interpretation and they're telling me their word is the word of God is the height of human arrogance.

I would prefer if all organised religions just disbanded and humans worshipped separately or in groups, religion for me is a very personal thing and I don't need another person telling me what religion means to me.

I think 99.9% of people believe they have the right to defend themselves and their family. We Muslims have the same right whether they be Muslim or not. That whole part of the Qur'an is to tell people that it's permissible to kill if absolutely necessary. If people read the aya (line after) it talks about how peace is the preferable solution.

I was just pointing out that you could just as easily be a "literal christian" and say the exact same thing about the "non-literal christians" and it would be just as valid as what you just said.

Both sides have interpretation and (I suspect) bible passages to support their case.
Just like the peaceful muslims and the extremist muslims use the same book to justifiy peace/violence.

Well there isn't really much of an argument, because if it was taken literally, the Bible would be completely irrelevant because it contradicts itself so much. It says not to kill, but then it says that whoever does certain things needs to be put to death. So by following the laws of the Bible, you're breaking the laws of the Bible. (And this is the point where most people agree with me.)

Meh, I don't really agree with that argument personally. I think it's because I see a difference between executing someone for wrongdoing/ threatening harm and murdering. The "Do not kill" is more along the lines of Murder whereas "if someone does 'X' wrong, kill them" is more along the lines of execution.

There ARE places where the Bible seems to argue with itself, however. Some can be explained, some can't... and I think that's ok when someone takes the point from the book rather than taking it so literally.

No, not really, and that's where the blind, ignorant faith comes in, denying any logic or reason just cause "the Bible says so". Even the Catholic Church recognizes that it's supposed to be taken metaphorically and applied to our daily life. Also, very few Christians actually fully follow the rules of the Bible, because if there was any Christians who did, every time they wore two different kinds of cloths at the same time, they would have to bathe for 2 days. Also, any time someone committed adultery, they would have to stone them. So even the people that take the Bible literally, don't ACTUALLY take the Bible literally, they're just ignorant assholes.

No, once again I believe that it wasn't supposed to be taken literally, it's just saying that Jesus is divine as well as human because he's a part of the Holy Trinity. It's like the water cycle. H20 is H20 when it's water, and H20 is H20 when it's ice, so God is God when He's God, and God is God when He's Jesus.
