That isn't the only way to define an agnostic, it can also be defined as someone who believes in a higher power but they don't really know what, or if they don't have a religion that's right for them, so they believe in God but don't belong to an organised religion.

I believe that there is a God but he's a bit of a dick that doesn't really deserve my praise, so I would be classed as an agnostic.

Ask the thousands of faggots on the internet who are atheist, which definitely doesn't have anything to do with the fact that they're rebelling against parents who made them go to church when they were younger. Obviously this doesn't apply to everyone but it does to a hell of a lot.

You can tell 100 people the same thing and they'll all interpret it differently, and that my dear friend is called perception. The Bible is a collection of scrolls all written in different times and in different places in middle eastern and lower European lands.  On top of that the parts of the bible mentioning homosexuality being an abomination are in the old testament and therefor applied to old Jewish law.  Christianity's basis surrounds the teachings of Jesus and not once does he teach that homosexuality is a sin.  Jesus taught to love everyone (even whores) unconditionally yada-yada, etc.  Sorry if this doesn't make sense, it's 			*******		 early and I'm not trying that hard.

If you paid attention to the story, you'd recall that the talking snake was not legit as **** .

Also you'd know that the Bible isn't a historical document, but a series of parables and allegories collected by ancient Hebrews millenia ago that aren't meant to be taken literally. Seriously, saying stuff like this entirely negates all of Abrahamic religion is like saying that since water vapor doesn't behave like an ideal gas negates all of science. You're entirely missing the point. The Bible sets out to describe what a good person is and does in a variety of situations, including some that probably didn't happen, but better explain the point.

And yes, homosexuality was an abomination (disregarding the vast difference in our definitions of "abomination") back then. But you have to keep in mind that this was thousands of years ago pertaining to a desert people who were frequently at war and had to have a dozen kids to maintain population levels, keep the farm going, be ready for battle, etc. If you weren't having kids, you were a drain on society. Ancient Greeks and Romans had very secure leisure societies and didn't need to have so many kids so they could afford to not be popping out babies all the time, ancient Hebrews just did not have that luxury.

The Bible isn't a textbook, it uses non-literal story-telling to portray right and wrong to an ancient group of people. Religion has evolved a great deal in the times since. A surprisingly few amount of religious people are literalists (<10% worldwide, though about 15% in the US) yet over 85% of people are still religious. Treating it as the Absolute Unchangeable Truth just shows you're ignorant of the situation and only serves to hurt your arguments. There are plenty of legitimate arguments against religion, but this just isn't one.

Sorry for the wall of text, but you made it through and hopefully learned something. Thanks for reading.

Right,

How can you hate pedophiles, or necropheliacs, or people into incest or bestiality? Love is love, right?

I have no problem with gay people, but your logic is ******* retarded.

By the way, the whole "militant theist vs militant atheist" thing, you may want to read up on the way Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot and other atheists killed theists for "the good of the state".
User avatar #72 to #47 - thebritishguy (02/24/2013) [-]
pedophiles, or necropheliacs or bestiality are were only one person loves the other not a loving relationship so I don't define that as love. Incest is fine with me as long as it is consenting.
As you say they killed for the state, they were in no way killing for atheism, unlike when some one kills for God like Osama bin Laden, Hitler, Saddam Hussain, the soanish inquisition, terrorists. Lets look at the people who have been killed in the name of God: gay people, "witches", atheists, people of other religions, feminists, the people who died of slavery which was supported by the church's of America, the women and children who die in Islamic countries, the abortionists who get killed, the Jews who get killed by suicide bombers everyday, scientists and philosophers who contradicted the Catholic church, the people who died in holy wars. The list goes on you may want to read up on that.
User avatar #186 to #72 - mynameisgeorge (02/24/2013) [-]
There is consensual pedophelia,
necrophelia doesn't need consent as a dead body is an inanimate object, you don't need to ask a fleshlight for permission to have sex either
Bestiality can be entirely consensual if the animal is in heat

You may want to read up on the fact that Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot etc killed millions more than any religious institution in the name of atheism because they considered religious people as less than them. There was mandatory conversion of atheism in these regimes, that, or death. Keep in mid, these millions were killed in the 20th century as compared to the 2000 killed in the inquisition and exactly 19 killed in the witch trials.

The Catholic Church saved the Middle Ages with the invention of universities and a political system that could unite the crumbling empire. Religious wars are always landgrabbing under the guise of religion; if the Crusades were truly about religion, the crusaders wouldn't have wasted time conquering all of north Africa.

Hitler killed people because of a reaction to the horrible restrictions and debt put on Germany after WWI, the Jews were a scapegoat. Bin Laden was pissed because the Americans stopped financing him after the Russians were no longer a threat. Saddam killed an ethnic group, not a religious one. None of them were ever doing it for religion.

You are probably the most ignorant, religion bashing person I have ever encountered
#267 to #186 - deadmanschest (02/24/2013) [-]
Okay I hate religion bashing as much as the next person, but you are a ******* idiot. Let's break down your retarded statements shall we?

First if you are going to try and make an argument that homosexuality is on the same level as pedophelia, necrophelia, and bestiality than I truly hope there is a God, because I will pray that he gives you a fully functioning brain one day. Pedophelia is wrong because the victim is not old enough to make decisions on sexuality, necrophelia is wrong because you are ******* a dead body. And seriously, bestiality is consensual if the animal is in heat? That's like raping someone and saying that they were horny so it was okay.

I would really like to see some sources in your second paragraph, none of those dictators have ever been recorded as killing in the name of Atheism or specifically killing religious people, they killed without reason and were just heartless people in general. Either you were misinformed, or you are pulling this ******** out of your ass.

Schooling and political systems existed long before the Middle ages and even before Catholicism itself. Yes the motives for the crusades and the like were probably just a land grab but they used religion as a tool to get people to follow them, if anything religion is at fault for being one hell of a control mechanism, which is why it is so scary. In the wrong hands religion can be used for great evil.

And finally, like I mentioned before, Saddam and Bin Laden use religion as a control mechanism, their intents are most likely non-religious but they use religion to get other people to do what they want.

Finally, I have no problem with religion, I didn't bash it at all actually. I think religion offers some great values and lessons for people to live by. What I don't like is people who think they can pull ******** out of their asses and say it's a valid argument. Please check your facts before you post. You are actually pretty ignorant yourself

User avatar #379 to #267 - mynameisgeorge (02/24/2013) [-]
The argument against homosexual bashing is "love is love" or "they can't change it" neither can pedophiles, necropheliacs, or people who engage in bestiality. As further backup, pedophelia wouldn't have different ages of consent if it was so wrong. It is relative, at what age a person is able to make decisions like that, which is why Germany's age of consent is 14 and the US's is 18. You can't just say "it's wrong" Again, necrophelia is sex with and inanimite object, how does that make it wrong? Just because it had sentimental value in life doesn't mean it's worth anything in death. Fleshlights have been modeled after peopple's vaginas, should they be outlawed becasue the vagina isn't alive anymore? Dogs, dolphins, apes and other animals are known to attack members of diferent species for sex, I believe that would be just cause to engage in relations with an animal. Love is love

So was it just a coincidence that Stalin decided to target Russian Orthodox people specifically?
http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/archives/anti.html
This is a brief illustration of Stalin's and Khrushchev's attacks alone.

I didn't say that schooling and political systems didn't exist, I stated that "The Catholic Church saved the Middle Ages". They were the first to implement a university system EVER and they organized a political/religious regime that ensured the crumbling Roman State stayed together after the Barbarians crushed it.

Finally, try not to call me a ******** spouting idiot when attempting to understand my arguments and a 5 second google search would've cleared any issues you had.


#393 to #379 - deadmanschest (02/24/2013) [-]
"Joseph Stalin revived the Russian Orthodox Church to intensify patriotic support for the war effort."
Taken directly from your source. Yes there was anti-religious bashing going on in the Soviet Union, but I still don't see any evidence that this was Stalin's M.O. From what I can tell as much violence was caused by this movement as the countless other movements in the name of religion. Which brings me back to my point, religion or lack of religion is not the problem, evil people are the problem.
Pedophilia exists on two levels, from a moral standpoint and from a legal standpoint. In my last post I pointed out the argument from a moral standpoint. It gets trickier from a legal standpoint because there are grey areas where the government needs to define a definite line between right and wrong. However, religion should have no say in how a state defines pedophilia, just like they should have no say in how the state defines marriage. They are issues that apply to people of many different beliefs (plus I believe the catholic church has been known to practice some secretive pedophilia, again because they can easily control people) .
"Fleshlights have been modeled after peopple's vaginas, should they be outlawed becasue the vagina isn't alive anymore"
This is a stupid argument, the vagina mold in the fleshlight was never alive in the first place, it's plastic.
"Dogs, dolphins, apes and other animals are known to attack members of diferent species for sex, I believe that would be just cause to engage in relations with an animal"
So we should allow rape because animals do it? I guess we should also allow murder and cannibalism, because animals do it.
I wouldn't say the church "Saved the Middle Ages". Thousands of other societies existed concurrently with the Catholics. They may have saved a select group of people, but that's about it. Don't forget how they turned their followers into robots that killed for them.

I hate seeing people support Christians...nobody knows what they've done to me in life..being born to a Christian family, forced to go to church, forced to go a Christian school which, ironically, is what made me not believe Christianity one bit. They're all delusional people high on some sort of drug out there, I don't know, and I don't want to know what they're high on. ALL Christians deserve to die because of their highly illegal drug that all of them are hopped up on. :/

User avatar #413 to #93 - MosKunas (03/01/2013) [-]
The only reason it has become what you say it has is because of the predominance of Christianity in the U.S, UK, and the other predominant countries here on FJ. If funnyjunk originated in Palestine, then the "atheist" channel would be full of anti-Jewish & anti-Islam content. Anyone who is atheist believes obviously that there is no God, we all know that. But the origins of why we believe so originates in philosophical and scientific ideas, that for the most part parallel the views of Christianity for example. So with all that said there is going to be a conflict no matter what religion it is. Jainism, Christianity, Islam, etc. It's like reprimanding an evolutionist for having an argument with a Creationist. Yes, the evolutionist technically does not have to even speak to the Creationist. But since they have deeply polar opposite views there is bound to be a conflict, as I said before just as a different example. The arguments that the atheists are making on this channel can be applied to all religions not just Christianity, just insert Allah for God, Qu'ran for the Bible and so on. So don't feel as if you are being singled out and all atheists just have it out for your specific beliefs. Life without expressing your opinion would be bland, and nothing would be accomplished. i.e Slavery, Witchcraft etc.
User avatar #414 to #413 - mkchillin (03/02/2013) [-]
But they don't, that's the thing.

Atheists will forever and always attack Christians, people who believe in love, forgiveness, tolerance, peace, acceptance, humility, people who founded this very nation upon such a belief.

Meanwhile, those fig-eating towel heads straight-up say we are the devil and that they wanna kill us and they have before too and athiests wont even blink
User avatar #415 to #414 - MosKunas (03/02/2013) [-]
If you review the history of Christianity you'll see nothing but intolerance for everyone who isn't a white male or female. (Females barely a part of this because it was Christian tradition to stone a women if she admitted to not being a virgin before getting married.) And most of the people who founded this nation fostered the beliefs of atheism, they just could not show them because of the INTOLERANCE of the Christian population. (i.e Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Thomas Edison etc.) If they shared their actual beliefs they would of been shunned regardless of their ability to lead a country in to a never-seen before era. If the hundreds of contradictions in the bible don't convince you of their intolerance and confusion I don't know what will. I could go on more but really don't feel the need to.



P.S Don't proclaim the Christians to be tolerant, peaceful and accepting and in your next breath say Muslims are "fig eating towel heads." You make yourself look stupid.
User avatar #416 to #415 - mkchillin (03/02/2013) [-]
...and the classic atheist argument-the past.

Yes, back then, people hijacked Christianity to further their own means and intolerance was rampant. But things are VERY different now days. You don't see Europeans invading Jerusalem or witches being burned in New England in 2013.

And you yourself proved my point; you defended the muslims I admittedly had insulted due to my frustration and rage. It's all good to call the people who donate more to charity than any other religion, who help fund aid help in impoverished countries among other good deeds, among other good acts intolerant and stupid and hateful, but it's a no-no to criticize the people who treat women like cattle, who kill thousands of "infidels" yearly among other atrocities.

I don't see how that makes any sense.

BTW, the very things you accuse Christians accuse of doing in the past, the Muslims are doing NOW.

BUT, since they kill Christians for being what they are, and have nothing but ill-will towards them, that means atheists are cool with them then right? :)
User avatar #417 to #416 - MosKunas (03/03/2013) [-]
Most atheists aren't just anti-Christianity, they are anti-religion. I'm not trying to justify the acts of any religion that is opposed to Christianity. Nor commits the same atrocities that Christianity committed ages ago. And you say "muslims" as if there isn't extremists in all groups of faith.( I don't think there should be religion at all. ) There are parents in the south right now, who are beating their children with rods when they misbehave because they believe every word in the bible to be true. The reason all of these things are occurring are because of a "God" telling them to do so. This debate was originally between Christianity and Atheism so I won't go into which faith (Muslim & Christianity) has higher moral values in its perspective. But like I said the root of all this anger and indifference/blindness is "God." When I say God please don't assume I am referring to the Christian one, because I am referring to all religions who worship one. Why is God considered an explanation for anything? It's not, it's a failure to explain. It's a shrug of the shoulders, an "I dunno' dressed up in spirituality and ritual. If someone credits something to God, generally what it means is that they haven't a clue, so they're attributing it to an unreachable, unknowable sky fairy. Ask for an explanation of where that "God" came from, and you'll receive a vague, philosophical reply about it having always existed, being outside nature. Which, of course, explains nothing. And it's the religious' faith of this "god of the gaps" that somehow justifies these inhumane acts that have been committed in the future and past, in all religions. And don't say there isn't a correlation between every catastrophe that has happened to us as a human race, and a religion. Atheists value knowledge and evidence and no religion is based off the support of evidence and logic. If someone doesn't value logic, what logical argument could you provide to show them the importance of logic?
