You atheists are becoming the kind of extremist **** you despise so much, at least when is opposite to your own beliefs (read as: religious). It's fine that you have your own ones, but you keep trying to put them down everybody's throats, you're not better than the ones you protest so hard against.

MFW atheists bitch about us Christians enforcing our beliefs on others and I see half the front page content posted in a channel dedicated to bashing Christianity and forcing atheist opinions on us

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Also you'd know that the Bible isn't a historical document, but a series of parables and allegories collected by ancient Hebrews millenia ago that aren't meant to be taken literally.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.

this is why atheists are hated, such a sense of arrogance about yourself which you think allows you to push your lack of beliefs onto others. If you're so sure of your atheist "beliefs", kill yourself - life doesn't mean anything right?
#154 to #124 - llamadude (02/24/2013) [-]
Actually, people like you are those who should reevaluate themselves because asking for the death of another life, isn't that against almost every religion? Also, atheists do have meaning in their lives. They just despise the fact that people put meaning in their lives for another entity; they like having the meaning in their lives as their own purpose and not influenced by another i.e. god, gods, spaghetti monster, etc. I am not an atheist, but I can atleast understand their points of view to some extent.

Minor problem with that statement: it wasn't really an actual snake so much as it was Satan incognito.
