Man.. normally I looooooooooove arguing with religious people and non religious people. I honestly just like arguing. But this isn't even beating a dead horse any more. It's like beating the horse's tombstone forty seven years after it died.
We get it. Atheists make jokes about how stupid religion is.
Thiests make jokes about how funny lack of faith is. Blabbity blabbity blah.

If I wanted to start a religion war I'd walk into the local church dressed as satan and start screaming at the priest/pastor/rabbi/imam. M'kay?

Atheists claiming they're smarter than Christians? Surely this hasn't been done before.
User avatar #456 - eight ONLINE (01/06/2012) [-]
According to many, I am an idiot for believing in God. Oh well, at least I am happy. That is all that will really matter in the end. Did you live a happy life, or a sad life? If Atheism makes you happy, keeping Atheing on, if Christianity make you happy keep Christin on. Same goes for everything else. But I guarantee you, if you are the type who deliberately insults other religions openly to people(without a shred of decency of saying it in private), you are not happy and you might want to rethink your views.

Through the eyes of a christian........

I'm atheist and happy while laughing at your ******* crazy views. What you're basically saying is that if PersonA says, "The earth is flat" and PersonB says, "Whoa whoa you're a ******* idiot, look at all this evidence and **** to the contrary" that personB is a unhappy person.

Sorry, just ain't so.

There is nothing wrong with having a discussion, it is when you leave peace aside and begin to insult them that breaks the boundaries of respect. Facts don't lie, the sooner we all accept them the better, however if a person truly believes the world is flat because his or her religion deems it so, that is when you might want to avoid telling him or her that he or she is wrong. Religion is very brittle, very delicate. If you want to avoid death and war, be nice, and respectful. That in itself is fact.

User avatar #533 to #516 - eight ONLINE (01/06/2012) [-]
Because Atheists are never mass murderers, commit genocide or any other terrible deed imaginable. You seem to imply that a human who believes in a religion becomes a superior yet unstable being, easily corrupted by all forces and impossible to reason with. The truth is that it is simply human nature in general.
#552 to #516 - leiot (01/06/2012) [-]
Humans have a history of human rights violations. There are people in this world who only seek to corrupt what others hold sacred. It doesn't matter whether it's religion, politics, science, ideals; there are people who are going to twist it into a tool of destruction and oppression. That doesn't mean that the core belief itself is wrong, it means the person doing their best to bastardize it for their own gain is wrong.
And just like there are corrupt people of faith, there are also corrupt people who use Atheism as a tool to make themselves seem superior over others...
#544 to #456 - anon (01/06/2012) [-]
I'm atheist and I think there is absolutely nothing wrong, crazy, or limiting about believing in any specific or unspecific kind of supernatural order. The only reason that I am atheist is that it simply doesn't seem to me, personally, that there is any reason to think there is any such thing. What matters is how you express what you believe; if you hate and kill people who don't agree with you, that's always bad; if you are willing to put your differences aside to help others, that's always good.

i'm not trying to start a religious debate, but if atheists (and Christians alike) actually studied and not just read the Bible they would be blown away. It's filled with literary structures, refrains and thematic pillars. If anyone realized that, they would have to conclude that the writers of the Bible were either a. All geniuses or b. It's true. It is honestly mindblowing when you break it down with respect instead of treating it like a children's book. To quote C.S. Lewis, "if one cannot understand a book written for adults, they should probably not comment on it".
#658 to #639 - anon (01/06/2012) [-]
Or C A COLLECTION of different things written by MULTIPLE PEOPLE that was recopied during the dark ages by a bunch of monks.
User avatar #679 to #658 - Cambro (01/06/2012) [-]
Actually, false. Historians used to believe this (and honestly they were biased for atheism anyway) until the dead sea scrolls were found. The dead sea scrolls was the old testament but a few books preserved in jars from before the Church's creation. The texts are 97% directly accurate to the same texts we have today. No changes. Multiple authors wrote the books and monks did copy them down, but they did so with near perfection. There is no change in the texts at all.
#726 to #679 - anon (01/06/2012) [-]
Actually just looked this up and it's not true. Only parts of the dead Sea Scrolls are accurate to the bible such as issiah, but there are still another 65 books which the bible was composed of.

Even then, the book of issiah in itself was created by multiple authors. In otherwords, how you can argue that the bible was not composed or pieced together by multiple people escapes logic.
User avatar #745 to #726 - Cambro (01/06/2012) [-]
there is no evidence to support that Isaiah was written by multiple authors, there can be only mere speculation. Besides, he uses the same poetic style and shows a knowledge of the political ins of both Babylon and Israel. Only one man could know this, and it suggests one writer.
ALL the texts found in the Dead Sea scrolls are accurate to the Bible, it is just that the entire Bible is NOT in the Dead Sea Scrolls. I never claimed all the books were. In fact, that proves my point more. The newest books weren't in the Dead Sea Scrolls, which somewhat more validates their scholarly dating.
And again, I am not claiming multiple people crafted the Bible. I am saying that one force is behind it, because contradiction is free from the Bible and the same messages/themes/poetry/structures are correlated between many writers over thousands of years. I believe that strongly supports a divine guidance of the book.
User avatar #698 to #679 - msvegeta (01/06/2012) [-]
What about before the dead sea scrolls? You're implying nothing was manipulated while they were written.
User avatar #716 to #698 - Cambro (01/06/2012) [-]
I'm implying it because 1. The texts are historically accurate for all we know. Nothing has been found that contradicts the Bible historically, but there are things that correlate with it. 2. The Israelites had nothing to gain by tinkering with their own texts. Over half of the Old Testament is bad things happening to Israelites because they pissed God off. Why would someone edit it so they're blamed for the happenings that go on to them? 3. to quote a Jewish scholar whose name I do not remember, if the Torah were made up, we "sure could have invented a better story than the one presented".
User avatar #729 to #716 - msvegeta (01/06/2012) [-]
You present an interesting case... I have respect for your argument. However, the sophistication of the bible has nothing to do with whether or not everything in it actually happened. But that's my opinion, you're entitled to your own. It's too late at night for more debating :P
#696 to #679 - anon (01/06/2012) [-]
You should source evidence of claims like this. Christian discoveries have gotten so shrouded in lies and fakes(noah's ark been "found" over 40 times) that searching for something that supports Christianity from a reliable website is actually difficult.
User avatar #700 to #639 - bfflaalz (01/06/2012) [-]
I've studied the bible briefly in theology class. I do enjoy the symbolism especially in Jesus' parables even though I'm an athiest. However, I wouldn't agree that the writers were geniuses and saying that the a work of literature is true and historically accurate based solely on the fact that it is well written is somewhat absurd.
User avatar #728 to #700 - Cambro (01/06/2012) [-]
there is much more than just symbolism. That is much to simple. Most of the Bible is structured in chiasms. Its a poetry in the form of a-b-c-a-b. Its a reflection, and the key point of the entire book or fragment of a book is in the center. EVERY book is structured masterfully in this way and I've even found a few for myself. I've only completely broken down one book. This poetry style is in every book over 2000 years. It never faded. That, too me, is interesting.
Secondly, the continued progressive correlation between words used in both the Old and New Testaments is a wonder. It seems every writer had a full scope of everything in the Bible's contents. This is even more amazing when you realize that books of the Bible were being written at the same time in different places. in otherwords, they used the same poetic phrases without having any prior knowledge of its match. The Bible is FILLED with these.

Here's the thing. I am a Christian, and every atheist I meet that wants to use verses from the bible out of context I just pray for. Why argue? What do I have to prove to them?

Now Christians who use verses out of context of believe that we should basically live in 0AD and believe every single thing that is in the Old Testament was written in stone by God himself and we should obey and live by that blindly... well those are the people I get into arguments with.

Here's the simple truth, the bible was written BY MEN in a very superstitious time period, and because of that many men used the name of The Lord for their own selfish and moral behalf, which has been going on ever since, remember The Crusades? Yeah, God didn't want that. God only wrote 10 laws in stone. The Commandments.

I've never met an Atheist, or a Christian, or any other person of religion/non-religion that I've had a head on religious debate with. Upon finding out someone's religion, I nod and smile because its not my place to argue, or tell someone what they believe is right or not right. You should try this out too, it makes things a lot easier, more peaceful, and makes anyone look like less of an asshole, because most people's personalities and how they treat others define who they are, not their religious belief. To each his own, brotha.

#77 to #35 - thatsnotfunnymate (01/06/2012) [-]
Not only is that ******** , I'm going to show you. To do that, lets take the most basic Christian story, the Christmas narration, the birth of Christ.
There was never a reason for Joseph to go to Bethlehem, there was never a tax thing that required a mass exodus like that. There's zero accounts of Bethlehem's inns all being full. There are zero accounts of a bright star that could lead the three kings, nor is there any reasonable theories as to where those kings could have came from. There is huge amounts of evidence that King Herod did not kill all of the new born boys in Bethlehem at this time, there are no stories, there is no sudden change in population distribution, and there are records of newborns from this period being alive tens of years later. And, the best estimates of Jesus' birth put it at around 5 BC. King Herod died at the same time, he was not plotting mass murders, or talking with his young children.
There is very little historical facts that correlate with the stories of the bible. That's why most heads of religion preach that the stories are not facts, they are metaphorical, simply intended to teach stories to people. You're wrong.
