My church has free Wi-Fi, so yeah...
User avatar #83 to #6 - jinjo (01/26/2013) [-]
..But why?
User avatar #195 to #83 - sadaros (01/28/2013) [-]
Well, we use a pc at church during service, so its good to have net on it, and we just left the WiFi open because there was no reason to lock it
User avatar #196 to #195 - jinjo (01/28/2013) [-]
Oh that makes sense,

But out of cuiouity, what do you use the PC for during mass?
User avatar #197 to #196 - sadaros (01/28/2013) [-]
We have the lyrics of the songs we sing, and if we show like a video

And music for after service
User avatar #198 to #197 - jinjo (01/28/2013) [-]
Kinda makes you wonder why most churches don't do that. I imagine a lot of it has to do with how apprehensive people are with modernizng anything religion based.

Yeah, alot of old people deciding all church related matters. If only more kids(12-21 y/o) knew that you could actually help with deciding what is happening in church...

what are the odds that the network is either unsecured or the password is 'jesus'?

What are the odds of it being being an open network or has a simple password like most other public wifi hotspots? I'm guessing pretty good...

Except their are always a certain amount of people who take offense to any of those joke subjects. This one is kinda just stupid. Here's the deal: Let 			*******		 christians worship what they want as long as they don't bother you, and then you have no right to bash on any religion. I just think it's funny to watch people fight over religion... whether your atheist of faithful, you just don't get the messege if you keep fighting with others about it.

I respect peoples religion and understand it is very important to them but that still doesn't stop me from enjoying religious jokes which are funny.

I just find it very curious as to why people on this website and in other walks of life are hyper-sensitive when it comes to the subject of religion yet at the same time find discriminative jokes or jokes involving mass-genocide acceptable? This question isn't rhetorical, I'd actually like to know the answer. anyone?
#91 to #55 - Rascal (01/26/2013) [-]
All of the above jokes are all in good fun.

Religious jokes are nothing but either an Atheist/Christian/Muslim/etc. trying to tell someone they are wrong when nobody has any proof.

User avatar #74 to #71 - HarvietheDinkle (01/26/2013) [-]
Not really - I wouldn't bet on those odds. Hardline agnosticism (the one I believe is the most logical) is actually saying "I don't know, and I can never know. No one can, really."

While yes, some things (such as the lack of a god) are more likely than others (and thus the casino analogy is kinda moot), there is no 100% certain way to confirm/deny these things.

User avatar #98 to #74 - gammajk ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
It's funny because you think you aren't an atheist, but you are. Agnosticism and atheism are not mutually exclusive. If you are not actively believing in a god, then you are an atheist, even IF you accept the possibility of the existence of one.
User avatar #175 to #98 - HarvietheDinkle (01/26/2013) [-]
Difference is, atheism is the act of saying that god doesn't exist. Agnosticism is saying that he can or can't. If I'm wrong, then what are people called - the ones who resolutely state that he doesn't exist?
User avatar #178 to #175 - gammajk ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
No. Atheism is NOT saying god does not exist. The ONLY thing atheism means is that they do not actively believe in god. If you answer anything except for "yes" to the question "do you believe in god", then you are an atheist.
User avatar #180 to #178 - HarvietheDinkle (01/26/2013) [-]
Atheist: Lack of belief in a deity.

Agnostic: Lack of knowledge in a deity.

Hardline agnosticism is different, because they openly state that no one can know. Atheism doesn't do this.
User avatar #181 to #180 - gammajk ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
What you STILL fail to acknowledge is that atheism and agnosticism are NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. Most atheists could be called agnostic atheists. Guess what, you CANNOT be a pure agnostic. That definition simply does not exist. You can claim you have a lack of knowledge in a deity all you like, that doesn't change the fact that you aren't actively believing in a god, therefore making you an atheist. Atheism is NOT actively disbelieving in a god, either - it is simply the lack of an active belief in a deity.
User avatar #184 to #181 - HarvietheDinkle (01/26/2013) [-]
1) Hardline agnosticism applies not only to your own personal belief, but to a whole population. Not only do they say that they don't believe a god exists, but that it's impossible to believe. Also, it's more philosophy-based rather than religious, because it can extend past the issue of a deity.

Atheism is centered around the lack of belief in a deity. It's more specific, and doesn't have the same range of subject that agnosticism has.

However, I am not saying (and never have explicitly stated) that atheism and agnosticism are mutually exclusive. If it seemed like that, then ignore my previous comments.

Never said they were completely different.

2) I am an agnostic atheist. I just said agnostic to get the point across that I don't have a personal stake in my original claim that people should stop the religious bashing.

3) There is such a thing as agnostic theism - where you believe a god exists but aren't sure what it is. So at a point, atheism does split from agnosticism. The amorphous blob analogy only applies up to a certain point.
User avatar #182 to #181 - HarvietheDinkle (01/26/2013) [-]
1)I never explicitly said the two are exclusive all the time. I just said that there is a technical difference because agnosticism stating something about a whole population, along with a persona belief whereas atheism is a personal belief. That doesn't mean that they are completely separate things; it's more like pointing to different sections of a metaphorical amorphous blob and defining them as "regions." In this case, the regions are somewhat different, but not completely.

Never said they were completely different.

User avatar #183 to #182 - gammajk ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
Let me put it this way. You call yourself an agnostic because you're too much of a pussy to just admit that you don't believe in god to religious people. You can't just sit on the fence forever and pretend to be superior to everybody else, you know.
User avatar #186 to #183 - HarvietheDinkle (01/26/2013) [-]
So, I think god is highly improbable. But it would be egotistical and stupid to say that, with certainty, he doesn't exist.

That's what agnosticism is about. It's not a cop-out. It's literally trying to find the most logical explanation, and taking into account that the human perspective is entirely limited.
User avatar #187 to #186 - gammajk ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
I KNOW what agnosticism is about. But attempting to dodge the fact that you're an atheist just so you don't have to discuss it with anybody IS a cop-out. Just admit the fact that you don't believe in god and move on. Guess what, MOST atheists are agnostic as well, including myself. But that doesn't mean I'm going to give any credence to baseless claims.
Plus, atheism would only be "stubborn and illogical" if there was ANY evidence whatsoever that even ALLOWS for the existence of a deity.
User avatar #190 to #187 - HarvietheDinkle (01/26/2013) [-]
Ok, looking back on this conversation, up to this point it seems like I was wording things wrong.
However, your comment proves, to me, that I do, in fact, need to clarify, because neither of us understands/was wording our arguments correctly.
So, here are the definitions (just to make sure we have everything cleared up, and so I can prove to you why agnosticism isn't a cop-out).
Note: When I refer to “general-sense” atheist, I’m referring to the collection of belief systems that have a lack of belief in a god. Although I do fall under this category, I do not fall under the category of a common atheist (below).
Note 2: I made up the term “common atheist.” Whatever the name is, however, I am not part of it (as you will see).

Hardline Atheist: Says that God doesn't exist. Is 100% certain about this. These were the atheists I was referring to as "stubborn," and you'll see why.

Common Atheist: Says "I have a lack of belief in God."

Agnostic Atheist: Is, in fact, a general-sense atheist (which is different than a common/hardline atheist, because general-sense encompasses all 3 groups). But this is similar to saying that a grizzly bear is a bear; it is not specific enough (especially when referring to religion). The differences between a common atheist and an atheist agnostic are below.

Agnostic Theist: "God exists, but I don't know what he is." Clearly not atheist, but is still agnostic. This is an example of an agnostic not fitting the atheist category.

Obviously, a hardline atheist and an agnostic are not the same. However, let's compare the common atheist to the atheist agnostic:
User avatar #191 to #190 - HarvietheDinkle (01/26/2013) [-]
Similarities:
a) Both have a lack of belief in God.
b) Both are part of the "general sense" atheist group (defined by the lack of belief).
Differences:
a) Common atheists don't address the issue of certainty. Agnostics do. Even then, there are two types of agnostics: Hardline and softline. The hardline says that no one can know the true nature of God. Softline only says "I can't know the true nature of God." So, agnostics split off from atheists in that they actually acknowledge the issue of certainty, whereas atheists either ignore it or don't acknowledge it.
b) When I said that agnosticism falls under the category of atheism, I was not telling the whole story. Agnosticism actually, depending on how you define it in context with the rest of your spiritual/philosophical beliefs, can actually extend ¬¬past religion. A general sense of my agnosticism is that I believe that nothing is certain – whether it comes to morals, perception, religion, etc.

This is what I believe atheism is lacking. Because the issue of certainty in one's beliefs does need to be addressed. While the common atheist does not say they are 100% certain, they also don't say that they are uncertain. They just don’t address the issue at all.
I like to think that common atheists are either hardline atheists or common agnostics in the making. This is because they will eventually have to address the issue of certainty, which they don’t. Obviously, this comes from my beliefs as an agnostic.
User avatar #192 to #191 - HarvietheDinkle (01/26/2013) [-]
Now, for why the “cop-out” explanation makes no sense:
1) I really don’t care whether or not I offend atheists or the religious by saying I’m agnostic. I’m not, in fact, trying to avoid the fact that I am atheist. That is a baseless claim you just made, a claim made by many because they feel like agnostics are, in fact, the cowards of the religious community. However, even if some agnostics are, this does not apply to me. I did not become agnostic to avoid conflict. I became agnostic because I think it’s the most logical choice.
2) The reason, instead, is that I have enough confidence to say that nothing is certain. This is what separates me from the common atheist. Not that they don’t have the confidence to admit it; it’s just that they don’t acknowledge the issue of certainty.
I am agnostic atheist because, like you, I lack a belief in god. However, I am willing to state that I can’t be 100% certain. Only 99%. Yes, I am saying that there is the possibility of the Christian God existing. However, it is very unlikely. I’m also willing to say that there is a possibility that unicorns exist, and that I am, in fact, a leprechaun (without my knowledge, of course). This is because humans have an extremely limited worldview, and who are they to say that something doesn’t exist if, hypothetically, it does exist beyond their perspective? However, these examples are obviously incredibly unlikely, which is why I lean towards common atheism, rather than theism. Thus, agnostic atheist.
I won’t give them a 0% chance, though, because anything is possible, and nothing – absolutely nothing – can be proven/disproven to a 100% chance.
So, long story short, I hereby announce that I am atheist (contrary to what I may have portrayed earlier, because I worded it horribly). However, I am not a common atheist. I am an agnostic atheist.
It may have seemed like I was trying to dodge the claims of me being atheist. Sorry if I portrayed it like that.

1) I can't delete my comments anymore, so just look at comment #184 as a revision.

2) No, I'm not a pussy. Atheism - the type demonstrated in this post - is completely ******* stubborn and illogical. If something is so completely beyond our comprehension that we can't prove/disprove it, we have to allow for that possibility. Humans can never know this, though, because nothing - not a single ******* thing - is certain.

However, you may have the argument that that last statement is contradictory. However, like how a box can't contain itself, that statement doesn't apply to itself.

"Religion is like a penis, it's fine that you have one. As long as you don't shove it down my throat."
And yet. All religion based stuff I've seen over the past 6 months have basically been nothing but bullying religion.
User avatar #162 to #18 - kolsinder (01/26/2013) [-]
>implying that you can actually "bully" religion
>implying religion hasn't bullied anyone else

Last time I posted this, I got bombarded with red thumbs, so here goes nothing:

The quote you posted refers to the real world, where in some communities, religion does get instilled into people. For instance, when I was around 9 years along, my Grandma basically manipulated my childlike innocence and attempted to make me extremely religious. Moreover, the beauty of the Internet is that it permits you to skip anything you dislike; You don't like anti-religion posts? Then ignore them!

The misconception here is that atheists criticising religion do so extensively in real life. This is impossible because if the given atheist has friends, then he won't act like a social idiot and persistently attack religion. On the other hand, if he doesn't, then he has no one to preach to, right? Hence why there are so many anti-religion posts on the Internet as opposed to real life.

My final point is that it is unfair to merely blame atheist posts. What about posts poking fun at black people and untreatable diseases? It's been pretty much established that everyone laughs at these issues on the Internet, yet I don't see anyone complaining about how they've been "bullied".
