>apologize for being human

Personally, I'd rather not get involved in this debate 99% of the time because I couldn't care less, but I'm pretty sure you've got that part a little backwards. Most mainstream scientists agree that we are destroying the planet and that life as a whole would probably be better of with humanity. Meanwhile, most mainstream religions see humanity as the perfect creation of God 3000ish years ago, whom the planet was made for and everything revolves around.

idk, I've heard more scientific arguments for humanity being evil than religious arguments by far.

she made orphanages for chidren in Calcutta, and she respected the human life. Instead of these sick people dying in the street without any consideration, she gave them a place to come to for care, even though she couldnt get doctors or advanced medicine to cure them.

What i don't get is that Christians are always seen as intolerant assholes, but I've known far more Christians in my life than atheists, but i know more atheists willing to personally attack you based on what you believe. Some Atheists i know say people are weak for relying on religion to give life meaning, but if your only goal is to take away something that gives them meaning, you're a sadist. Why would you want to take away something they rely on to get through life? I relied heavily on Christianity in the hardest time of my life and it got me through. Now I'm older and wiser and i don;t need religion anymore, but why in the flying **** would you feel so insignificant that you need to take away people's reasons for their significance.

I'm agnostic, and from my experience, I am far more likely to be personally attacked for my beliefs by an atheist than a religious person. Grow up, people.

So if someone were to come up to me and tell me that God isn't real, that our universe, and indeed our very conciousnous has sprung up out of nowhere, and for no reason, then i can dismiss them for having no definitive proof. Atheists believe those who r religious r stupid for trusting in something without any hard evidence. Yet they themselves trust in their supposed knowledge with no real pointing to th absence of God. I believe in the big bang theory, and evolution, i also believe in God. So tell me, y is there no God?

Religion is created by bad people. If you look at greek, egyptian, roman, japanese, chinese, mythology what is the primary difference between them and modern religions?

Never said to kill all who have different views? Riiiiight.

Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT
You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB)

If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives. (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)

A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

If a man commits adultery with another man's wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10 NLT)

A priest's daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death. (Leviticus 21:9 NAB)

Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)

They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)

Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

User avatar #1673 to #1641 - Sethorein ONLINE (05/04/2012) [-]
What you neglect to mention is the rabbinical process of giving the death penalty.

A lot of these came from the Written Bible of Judaism. There is also an Oral Bible, the Talmud. In the Talmud it stipulates what is required to be met before a death penalty can be given.
1) You must sin in front of two witnesses
2) They must warn you that if you sin you will receive the death penalty
3) You must say "I will die for this sin".

Then all these things must be confirmed in a trial. The death penalty was rarely ever given and if a court gave one it would be called a killing court for 70 years.

Also, these are all commandments to the Jews... There are only 7 laws for the other nations of the world. Don't murder, don't steal, don't commit bestiality, set up courts, don't cut the limbs off of live animals, don't curse god, and don't worship idols.

Also if those laws are broken its not the Jewish court that gives the punishment it's Noahide courts that do it. So Secular law, not religious law governs those 7 principles.

It's easy to read a line of text and say "LOOK LOOK IT'S EEEEEEEEEEVIL" you need to take a second and wonder... how the heck did this religion survive if all this **** got you killed? You'll be surprised by what you find.

If you belonged to a political party or a social club that was tied to as much bigotry, misogyny, homophobia, violence and sheer ignorance as religion is, you'd resign in protest. To do otherwise is to be an enabler, a Mafia wife, with the true devils of extremism that draw their legitimacy from the billions of their fellow travelers. lf the world does come to an end here or wherever, or if it limps into the future, decimated by the effects of a religion-inspired nuclear terrorism, let's remember what the real problem was: That we learned how to precipitate mass death before we got past the neurological disorder of wishing for it.

"Proof #24 - Ask why religion causes so many problems

If God were to exist, wouldn't you expect there to be a huge benefit to those who follow and obey him? Why, instead, do we see the opposite?

For example, there is growing evidence that the delusion of religion causes significant social dysfunction. Statistical research is revealing the problems that go with religion. For example, a recent article in the Journal of Religion and Society points out that religion is correlated to the significant social difficulties that we can see in America:

In general, higher rates of belief in and worship of a creator correlate with higher rates of homicide, juvenile and early adult mortality, STD infection rates, teen pregnancy, and abortion in the prosperous democracies . The most theistic prosperous democracy, the U.S., is exceptional, but not in the manner Franklin predicted. The United States is almost always the most dysfunctional of the developed democracies, sometimes spectacularly so, and almost always scores poorly. The view of the U.S. as a “shining city on the hill” to the rest of the world is falsified when it comes to basic measures of societal health."

Okay but why do you believe in something that, misguided or not, did lead to millions dead and more discriminated without proof?
#1386 - anon (05/04/2012) [-]
Okay, here I will give you something then:

If you choose not to follow religion, you are stating that you believe that human existence is finite (i know, no duh). But choosing to believe in religion offers the hope of life beyond death. I acknowledge that there is a possibility that God doesn't exist, and that my religion is simply wishful thinking. Faith is believing that the unlikely is still possible. What is the point you might say? By choosing religion, you have a chance of a future existence. By choosing atheism, you choose only what you can confirm and what your given: A span of a lifetime. Why not choose religion when there is a hope of a future?

Also I would like to point out to the OP who posted the pic: The reason for dressing up is not from religion, but is a stupid rule that traditional churches use.

If you also want to trust in the guys in the lab coats, I have this to say as well: Many scientists believe in the big bang theory. However, the big bang theory is not something that can be confirmed. IT IS A THEORY (Theory=Speculation). It is what, one might say, a religion for scientists. Because they also believe in what they cannot prove. They teach about evolution in schools. But once again, it can't be proven. It has been observed that micro-evolution exists, but that is different. Micro evolution is the adaptation of a species to short term differences in the environment. Macro evolution involves the complete repurposing of a lifeforms chemistry over thousands of years. Sounds kinda like a religious claim. It's something you can't prove and must believe.

And simply believing the guys in the lab coats means you don't have a mind of your own. You don't take the time to consider the issue. What each choice means. What the consequences of each choice means. Go in depth to both beliefs, and find out what they claim.

Whoa really you're an atheist which makes you better than religious people because your information is backed by science which makes everything more logical and smarter than religious people?! Wow, please tell me more! This is the first post I've ever seen dissing religion!

I'm sorry I had to do this. This is just getting out of hand though. I'm going down with my post too.

Your picture...thats not what Atheism is though. Atheism doesn't attempt to explain anything.
User avatar #1234 to #1228 - krazykorn (05/04/2012) [-]
I don't agree with the picture entirely. It's not fully implicated on the fact of what Atheism actually says happened at the start of the world. Nothing was a ball the size of the end of a pinkie finger that began to expand not explode that created gases and other particles to make complex organisms. I just don't see why that is so much more believable than ANY other religions theories other than Mormons and Scientologists.
User avatar #1238 to #1234 - KirbyFullyLoaded (05/04/2012) [-]
Once again, Atheists don't try to explain anything. Its more of a " **** Happens" approach or "We just don't know yet, why can't we just admit to not knowing all the answers?"
User avatar #1245 to #1238 - krazykorn (05/04/2012) [-]
Well I'm only a sophmore in Highschool and from every evolution section we do out of the 2 classes that have talked about it they explain before hand that this is where the Atheistic thought of the beginning of the world comes from.
User avatar #1301 to #1245 - KirbyFullyLoaded (05/04/2012) [-]
I too am a sophmore. Thats more of the current scientific thought, but even scientists can't be as bold to say "this is how it happened." Nobody can say that for sure.

Its what atheists believe because it has the strongest evidence.
User avatar #1260 to #1254 - krazykorn (05/04/2012) [-]
Well see that's what I don't understand, some of it does make a lot of sense but some parts just make no sense to me. How did the first organisms learn to reproduce without some kind of instruction? How did they learn to use chemicals to do chemosynthesis without an earlier ancestor telling them how?
User avatar #1309 to #1260 - KirbyFullyLoaded (05/04/2012) [-]
The argument really isn't which argument is correct, its more of whose argument is more correct or sounds more correct based on evidence that we can observe with our senses and through technology that we have developed to enhance our senses.
User avatar #1297 to #1260 - superpoo ONLINE (05/04/2012) [-]
With the organisms its more instinct based it had no idea what it was or what it was doing it was just surviving. I'm not really sure what the last question is supposed to be.

User avatar #661 - edreva (05/03/2012) [-]
The problem is that christians are so retrogade that they think that we are so special in the universe. All these people should have gone to school to learn that we are nothing else than living matter. God is a product of our minds and the CREATOR of the life was the bacteria that was born pure randomly from elements like hydrogen, carbono, etc. You may life scared all your life but don't **** with me, ******* christ **** .

The Big Bang.

Do you even realize who invented the Big Bang theory? Google helps.
The big bang theory was even critized for being too close to how christians view how the world was created. Most scientists didn't accept the reason for this at first and this is also where the nickname "Big Bang"-theory comes from
User avatar #699 to #677 - edreva (05/03/2012) [-]
THAT'S A NICE QUESTION! There are some humans called scientists that have been working for centuries and studying to answer these questions and every century we have more answers. Religion only says that there's a ghost that created EEEEVERYYTHIIING and you must swallow it like a good boy.
#725 to #661 - anon (05/03/2012) [-]
U c, ur not looking far enough back. I can believe that our physical bodies formed through a long line of chemical bonds, I just can't believe that those particles came from nothing.

User avatar #753 to #725 - roflkitteh (05/03/2012) [-]
Technically they didnt come from nothing, even though it seems odd, all life on the planet evolving from bacteria makes sense, after 4.5 billions years, its very possible that something so simple turned into something more complex.

"Bad educated?" I don't think I'm the one that's "bad educated" here. And I am simply stating the fact that you are acting like a condescending asshole. I think many people, including athiests, would agree, seeing the reaction to your posts.
#771 to #743 - edreva (05/03/2012) [-]
Exactly in wich part am I intolerant? So according to you to state a truth is to be condescending? Then all my teachers have been condescending all the time with me. Maybe everyone with knowledge is condescending now? Next time you break your leg and you go to medic you should insult him and punch him in the face for being condescending with you.
User avatar #853 to #771 - SgtObvious (05/03/2012) [-]
You're being condescending because you're rejecting mine and many other people's beliefs just because you don't agree with them. And to my knowledge, teachers aren't allowed to say that a certain religion isn't real.
User avatar #872 to #853 - edreva (05/03/2012) [-]
I don't agree with you because they brainwashed you all. I bet that you are american.
Let me explain you in other way:

Guess that I have 2 aples, one is red and one is green. I have one aple in each hand. If I show you that the red aple is in my right hand, can you guess what will I have in the other hand? It's easy. You can pray, you can wish to me to have another red aple in my other hand, because you love red aples, or your mother is dying and needs 2 aples, whatever, but the common sense tells you that I have a green aple in my left hand. And guess what? so it is. Deal with it.

Stop praying and start studying.

User avatar #1008 to #872 - SgtObvious (05/04/2012) [-]
"aple" lmao

And there's no 100% proof that God isn't real, and there's no 100% proof that the Universe was created randomly during the Big Bang.

And I'm not arguing about my beliefs, I'm arguing about you insulting me for having them.

You lump all Christians into one group, then call them ignorant. I thought Christians were supposed to be the intolerant ones, lol.

Well, I think you just did the same thing there buddy. 'Christianfag' aren't you calling every single Christian a fag?

And i'm just saying the religion itself is ignorant. I mean really, a random guy..lets just call him Jesus for ***** and giggles comes and brings peace and love to everyone, feeds them endless fish and wine, dies, then comes back 3 days later. And that's just one small part of the faith.

I am not atheist or christian. I believe in what feels good to me, and what makes me happy as a person. If anyone has a problem with that **** off.
#1250 to #1122 - LewdFlapjack (05/04/2012) [-]
Lol. never heard of the terms moralfag, amerifag, britfag, *any group*fag? Not actually calling them fags. For instance, im an agnostifag. Way to pick a single word out of context.

**tritusneptune rolled a random image posted in comment #4217851 at FJ Pony Thread ** OK
Prefix "a" = not
"theist" = one who believes in a god or gods
Therefore, atheist= Someone who isn't a Theist.

If I ask you if you are a Theist. You will say no. (At least I'm assuming that you will)
If you say no, then you are not a Theist. That would make you an atheist.

You either believe in god, or you don't. There is no middle ground. Now you may have the misconception that an atheist is some who says that they KNOW that god doesn't exist. This is certainly not the case. Most atheists say "I haven't seen any evidence, so there's no reason to believe in God"

#151 to #146 - blockheadboy (05/03/2012) [-]
okay im a theist but i don't believe in any specific religion at all
#175 to #151 - tritusneptune (05/03/2012) [-]
Then that makes you a deist. (AKA one who believes in a god but not a personal one)

User avatar #128 to #111 - shamefulhumor (05/03/2012) [-]
Agnosticism Is a cop out, of coarse there is no evidence of absence, but there is a huge absence of evidence for god in any religion today. As far as any faith/deity any ancient nomads have come up with thus far are ridiculous. We can eliminate the idea Abrahamic religions to a quantum refutal, everything in the bible is either false or historically traceable to regional superstition.

Now, not knowing if there is not something larger then us that may have a hand in things is much more probable whilst still farfetched. But you are not agnostic in that case.
You are ignostic or a theological non-cognesent.
#145 to #128 - blockheadboy (05/03/2012) [-]
all im saying is that nothing creating something is not possible. I don't believe in any specific religion, nor do i find them accurate at in the way they perceive that the world was created. For all i know the big bang could have possibly happened. But that swirling dust cloud didn't just come out of no where.
User avatar #169 to #145 - shamefulhumor (05/03/2012) [-]
Well there are much better theories about the origins of our universe then "Someone had to do it" The quark and proton subsequence is a good one.
However it is a drastic undersell to the enigmatic nature of reality to say someone had to do it, or else it could not happen.
#164 to #145 - tritusneptune (05/03/2012) [-]
OK now you have TWO misconceptions.
1. You think that Being an atheist means that you believe in the big bang theory. It certainly does not.
2. The big bang didn't start from a "swirling cloud" (The only other person I've heard say that was Kent Hovind and look where he ended up.)

The big bang has evidence(I'll be happy to discuss the evidence if you want me to)
We don't know everything about the origins of the big bang but we know it happened. At least Scientists are honest and say "It's unknown"
#180 to #164 - blockheadboy (05/03/2012) [-]
i know atheists done indefinitely believe in the big bang theory, i was using it as example.
#189 to #180 - tritusneptune (05/03/2012) [-]
OK, but you do realize that the Big bang theory(I will be referring to it as BBT from this point on) has PLENTY of evidence?
#200 to #189 - blockheadboy (05/03/2012) [-]
i think i already acknowledged that fact.
#215 to #200 - tritusneptune (05/03/2012) [-]
Fair enough, so what is your status on the big bang theory.
#234 to #215 - blockheadboy (05/03/2012) [-]
You probably wont like my response and also this will be my last but, As all theories do it has many facts to support it and could quite possibly be true. But you can't deny the fact that its just a "theory" and it does leave room for question. There are multiple theories up for debate on how the universe was created. I don't believe in any one theory but i don't deny any of them either. I leave them up for others to debate while i sit back and watch. And if you haven't noticed already by previous posts im a very uncertain person meaning i don't know what to believe and i am on the fence about many things.
#267 to #234 - tritusneptune (05/03/2012) [-]
It's just a theory. Well you know I have a friend who denies gravity because after all it's just a theory(AKA gravitational theory), he also didn't believe in germs(AKA germ theory. You obviously don't know what a scientific theory is. The big bang theory is the only "scientific" theory on how the universe began. BTW if you are unsure on whether or not to believe something. That means you don't believe it. I know you said that this was your last response but can you at least look at what a theory in science actually is.
