The Real Answer: Because I am unconditionally a good person.
What's the point of being a good person just because a god told you to be?

User avatar #72 to #63 - shiifter (11/26/2012) [-]
So, basically everything you do is is morally superior to what a theist does because you don't believe in a god? I don't know how it works in your country, but over here in america, people believe that just believing in god is enough to get you into heaven, so it doesn't really factor into their everyday decisions. In reality, everyone is behaving like an atheist. Having a certain religious belief does not make you special. That's arrogant and hypocritical.

Are you joking? I don't know what magical fairy land you live in, but living as an Atheist in America is tough as **** . I get constantly harassed because of my beliefs, and am nicer than most Christians. But as soon as I make a friend, "Oh, it's like God brought us together, right?" "Actually, I don't believe in God." **** YOU. That is America in a nutshell.

Password protected servers? You are not giving me any room here. What if you had no choice but to listen to it. This example is hypothetical. You don't need to mention your various defenses.

If you were nicer than most Christians, you wouldn't be harassing me right now. **** off you disgusting hypocrite.
User avatar #144 to #130 - doctorstein (11/26/2012) [-]
I think you need to learn the meaning of harassment. I posted one commented, shocked at how you live an American life of tolerance, and you come at me with your fail logic. I am disappoint.
User avatar #146 to #144 - shiifter (11/26/2012) [-]
Go away. You come to me with your butthurt and ******** . I don't have to take that **** from you. Go be an asshole somewhere else.

I detect mass jimmy rustling. You seem to be the butthurt one, I am just stating my opinion, as well as sharing my own personal experience, compared to your story, and you seem very distraught by it.
User avatar #151 to #148 - shiifter (11/26/2012) [-]
I'm only trying to get you to leave, since vulgarity and arrogance is all you atheists seem to understand. Whenever i make a post supporting theism, Some insipid 14 year old "atheist" comes up to "correct" me. I suggest you go be an asshole somewhere else.
User avatar #154 to #151 - doctorstein (11/26/2012) [-]
I have no arrogance. I am a common man. I enjoy this site, and it helps me escape from my tougher life. You are just being rude because I shared my troubles to someone who claimed people like me were treated just like everyone else.
User avatar #163 to #154 - shiifter (11/26/2012) [-]
But you are. Better even, since you are defended by the government in all forms of media, education and social activity. To tell you the truth, the way you people behave online, combined with the way famous atheists behave, combined with the fact that the government shamelessly defends you, would probably make me hate you guys to. Of course, i already do, since you people like to ruin the internet.
User avatar #394 to #163 - nogphille (11/26/2012) [-]
defended by the government...

do you mean freedom of speech?
or are you referring to most educational facilities which are still catholic even though segregation of state and church?

you, my religious friend, are the most biased religious person i've met on funnyjunk..
(not zlamous because he's obviously a troll)

No i mean putting up a ******* nativity scene in a park. I mean how evolution is always shoved down the throat of every elementary, middle, and highschool student as an absolute fact. I mean uprooting centuries of traditional **** because it was once about jesus. I mean how you can spend all day talking **** about Christianity, but you get crucified when you say anything bad about atheism.

But enough of my opinionated chatter. I just had an idea.
User avatar #500 to #499 - nogphille (11/29/2012) [-]
you're still extremely biased..

your religion isn't the only religion out there, many find Jesus Christ as a saint/rolemodel, but not as a prophet. It's a communal park, which means it should be pleasant for everyone, not just the religious.

if you want to put up a nativity scene, do it at a church or your own home.

On evolution, it's true that it's still just a theory, but it is still the best and most supported by science out there. If you want to disregard carbon dating, that's up to you, but your children should be thaught that there are other ways of looking at things.

The problem with bashing atheism... you'd need solid arguments to discredit someone properly... and i've found no 100% solid evidence that anything atheists believe in is false, since you'd have to prove God is real to prove us wrong..

I have no problems with catholics/muslims/protestants/jews/whatever, most of their religions are interesting enough and they are part of culture and history, but it should not stand in the way of technological progress...
and teaching people to disregard imperical evidence, is standing in the way of progress.
User avatar #501 to #500 - shiifter (11/30/2012) [-]
Nothing stands in the way of technological progress. Just because some nutjobs insult it doesn't mean that we're just going to bring it all to a screeching halt.

I'm not bashing atheism, i'm not even bashing regular atheists. I'm bashing internet atheists. The self righteous, 14 year old douchebags that tend to be everywhere on the internet. Say one thing negative about atheists, and suddenly 3 people pop out of nowhere to "correct" you.

Evolution is a rickety idea patched together by archeologists to explain how life got on earth. While it may have its share of evidence to support it, religions also have their share of evidence. Mostly rooted in human history. I don't have a problem with evolution. Just admit that it too, is faith based, and we wouldn't have a problem.

With the nativity scene, this is what i mean when i say tradition. Many parks would put up nativity scenes every year during christmas, and i didn't see many buddhists complaining. But now, you can't do that anymore because it's "insensitive".

And yes. I am extremely biased. Now, when you're done with your tl:dr response, you wanna hear my idea? It's a good one.
User avatar #502 to #501 - nogphille (11/30/2012) [-]
just because technological progress can't be stopped, doesn't mean nothing is standing in it's way... religion has slowed science on numerous occasions, if you really need me to elaborate, i will, but i think you're smart enough to fill in the blancs here.

don't think atheists are the only ones holding on to internet retards... remember zlamous? let's not talk about other religious fanatics regularly highlighting the news with their outrageous protests...

evolution is a theory that 'evolved' (heh) from being able to see microscopic particles, from KNOWING! that the world is older than 2000 years. It is faith based, yet needs less faith, because it has more evidence and less counter-evidence.

we live in a time where everything is close at hand and man is more and more offended by everything and anything, add cultural diversity in the mix and certain traditions are bound to be broken...

i know religious people like their traditions, i do too...
i just think it's extremely biased to place your own traditions above the others...
or should we celebrate Gudi Padwa every year too because it's hindu tradition?

i'm done talking, tell me your idea...

Go to a rival clan's server, and blast a muslim sermon over your mic. Make sure your name has something to do with allah so they think you're legit. Then, record reactions and put them on youtube. Way better than ventrilo harassment.

i think you accidentally the wrong reply there mate..
User avatar #505 to #504 - shiifter (12/01/2012) [-]
No, thats my idea. It will generate a HUGE amount of butthurt and rage. **** screamers, you want to get a rise out of those ******* , you spam religion. Instant rage.
User avatar #506 to #505 - nogphille (12/01/2012) [-]
it's not my intention to make a fool of religious people...

you're a weird person.
User avatar #507 to #506 - shiifter (12/01/2012) [-]
No, i'm not trying to be a smartass, it will work. Come on, if someone jumped on to your vent, and started blasting some sermon over his mic, what would you do? Aside from muting him that is.

And, how was my argument a strawman? Do you even know what a strawman argument is?

She's obviously thinking this about theists in general. It's called implication.

My assumption was based in the fact that she recited a common belief in the internet atheist community. Come on dude.

The bible says that believing in God is enough to get you into heaven, regardless of what you do, you will always be forgiven as longs as you're a believer. And it's a fair point, if you do something because you're scared, it's not as moral as if you do something out of kindness. That's why we apreciate voluenteers and not people doing community service.

You prove someone wrong and they continue to get thumbs because their opinion supports atheism.

Don't you love funnyjunk?
User avatar #388 to #78 - nogphille (11/26/2012) [-]
so, **** the ten commandments? they have no purpose? there's no need to live like a christian, follow their 'guidelines', as long as you believe, you'll get in heaven?
