Not really. Mr Tickle is a book made explicitly to be fictional.

Chances are so were most religious books at one point.
User avatar #25 to #23 - anonymoose (04/04/2013) [-]
No, they were used to describe scientific phenomenon that people didn't at the time or still don't understand and were also moral compasses for people.
User avatar #26 to #25 - noblexfenrir (04/04/2013) [-]
and Mr.Tickles is used to teach children the joy of tickling.

Any Dr.Seuss book can teach morals (Arguably better than any holy book) and can even discuss current scientific phenomena that we don't currently understand.

Again, I'm not seeing the difference between the bible and any childrens book.
User avatar #27 to #26 - anonymoose (04/04/2013) [-]
I think Mr Tickle teaches children sexual harassment if anything.

The Bible was made to answer real questions and give a definite moral compass for laws to be built upon. Children's books teach children to share their toys. The people who wrote the Bible believed he was real and were trying to praise him, I don't think Dr. Seuss believed Horton real heard a Who.

I think you do see the difference, but you're being purposely naive to the obvious difference between the Bible and Mr Men books.
User avatar #28 to #27 - noblexfenrir (04/04/2013) [-]
You have your description I have mine.

Have you read a Dr.Seuss book? It has what I would consider even for adults, one of the best moral guidelines in children books and even most books in general. While it also answers great philosophical questions and even there is a series on science and what not.

I do see the difference but the point I'm trying to make is that the difference doesn't matter. Whether Dr.Seuss believed Horton was real or if he really heard a who has no stipulation on the reality of Horton and his who. The same is applied to any holy book.
User avatar #29 to #28 - anonymoose (04/04/2013) [-]
Yes it does. If the author isn't trying to prove that the thing they're writing about is real then the book isn't evidence in favour of the thing being real.

Also, Dr. Suess's books don't try and prove the fictional characters are real. The Bible does have evidence in favour of God i.e. an explanation to the origin of the universe.

There are mountains of differences between the two.
#59 to #29 - anon (04/05/2013) [-]
that is not evidence. A story is not evidence. Remeber that the old testamen was written by simple animal herders with little understanding of how the world works.

I have actually read the bible, the qu'ran, and the brahma, jyotisha, nirukta, shiksha and nyaya sutras. Don't assume to know me just because you don't agree with my posts.
#149 to #145 - Peirs (04/05/2013) [-]
Have you read them all the way through or just a sentence of each? Also, no matter what you do, if you approach something with the utmost cynicism and unwillingness to view things from another point of view, then your opinion will never change.

I agree wholeheartedly with the second point you made, but come on guy, how do you even think I became an atheist in the first place? I'll give you a hint, it involved a lot of reading.
User avatar #151 to #150 - Peirs (04/05/2013) [-]
Well have you gone through the bible and it's counterparts comprehending it in a literal sense or actually noticing the parables and life lessons it teaches?
User avatar #153 to #151 - teranin (04/05/2013) [-]
Also, regardless of any presumed life lessons one might take from the bible, this post is directed only at those who would use their holy texts as proof of the existence of their deity, not at people who simply accept the lack of evidence and believe based on faith. I have no issue with those people.
#152 to #151 - teranin (04/05/2013) [-]
That depends on what you call a "life lesson". However, as a child I did view the bible as a collection of allegories about various moral choices. Then I actually acquired a bible that hadn't been doctored for children, and discovered the actual measure of the parables I had once thought to be beautiful expressions of morality. After making that discovery, and reading the book from cover to cover, I then decided to read the qu'ran after discussing it with some muslims I knew from school. Read it, cover to cover. Then my sister tried to talk me into Wicca. That **** didn't fly very far. After that, I decided that I had an interest in Hinduism, so I started reading sutras online, but at some point during that exploration I realized just how little I was able to take seriously at that point.

&gt;implying that the life and times of Jesus isn't one of the best documented things during the time, even moreso than the emperor's life and times.   
&gt;implying that hundreds of accounts from the Jews and Romans who were there, were unbiased, and made highly detailed recordings are to be discounted because it covers things you don't agree with   
&gt;implying you need 100% physical proof of something for it to happen

#99 to #69 - anon (04/05/2013) [-]
out of the 4 great historians that lived in the middle east during the time of Jesus and the crucifixion, not one ever recorded the existence of such a person. surely if a man like Jesus existed then there would at least be mention of him?

Jesus comes from the Egyptians. Google Horus. Virgin birth. Cured the sick and the blind. Had three wise men at his birth. Was crucified. And rose from the dead three days later. Also he fed the people with loaves and fishes. This was all based upon astronomy. The southern and all that jazz.

at the time he was seen as nothing more than a lunatic cultist, like a modern person would see Scientology. He wouldn't have been worth acknowledged in major historical accounts. The majority of accounts would be found coming from Roman soldiers or Jewish citizens personal letters and diaries. They would only mention him as this strange man causing an uproar, not anything important.

....your first point......about it being well documented.......

....can you provide me with a source other than the Bible that mentions him at all?
#133 to #87 - anon (04/05/2013) [-]
The church documented Jesus baptism.
And many Roman's wrote letters and text mentioning what people called Christ.
Pliny the Younger wrote a letter to Emperor Trajan
A Roman historian, Tacitus wrote about Christ and his church.
Suetonius mention him in his biography

There are documents other than the bible, even thro most scholars take the Pauline Letters and Synoptic Gospels as good documentation, that state Christ was a man.
User avatar #154 to #87 - mattdoggy (04/05/2013) [-]
There are a lot more sources that i know of, but most of them are in oldschool collections of ancient translated journals and letters that are bound into a book the size of a large pizza box. Unfortunately i can't find these books online, i was able to track down a few simpler sources though
carm.org/non-biblical-accounts-new-testament-events-andor-people
User avatar #160 to #154 - YllekNayr (04/05/2013) [-]
One of the sources of this site

"Lucian (circa 120-after 180) mentions Jesus. Greek writer and rhetorician."

Yet what he actually states is a description of the Christian faith, and speaks about his contempt for them and their disregard for the Greek Gods. He doesn't mention Jesus as a person. He mentions Jesus is their figure that is worshiped.

All other mentions of Jesus are from the single person Flavius Josephus, and that even mentions on the site that the quote is disputed. Everything else is a description of an event, like an eclipse, followed by an "explanation" wondering if this is the same event described in the Bible.

Hate to have to be the moralfag here but God and Allah are the same thing. Allah is just the Islamic word for God.

Doesn't change the fact that neither book is "proof" mind you. Proof denies faith and without faith there is no point to "God" in the first place.

Also, inb4 ********* of religious/atheist morons.
User avatar #5 to #4 - teranin (04/04/2013) [-]
No, you are right, Yahweh, Allah, and God are the same "being" but Allah is a reconfigured idea of that being's presentation, and as such can be seperated by book in this way. Still, you're right that they are the same thing overall.
User avatar #6 to #5 - snowshark (04/04/2013) [-]
True, but however popular the representation may be within the vox populi, it does not change the fact that it is incorrect nor that it is merely perpetuating a misunderstanding that places yet more distance between two inherently similar entities (these being the Catholic and Islamic religious systems.)

Then again, it is also a joke and by it's nature is a fictitious construct for the means of merriment and parody, hence I fully recognise my moralfaggotry for being the one dick obliged to point it out before the ********* tore the comments section a new a-hole.

P.S. Ever noticed how much phallic and scatological imagery there is on the internet? It is somewhat disturbing and doesn't speak well as to our collective sanity.

Alright, fine. Prove that there is no God. Find me proof. OR find proof that there is a God.
Go ahead. You see, as some have already pointed out, the basis of religion is...wait for it........wait for it......faith. Yeah. Believing that whatever god you so desire, not proving their existence. When was the last time an intelligent person you would trust to formulate a reasonable opinion tried to give you undenyable proof that God exists? Just saying, you're arguing agains people who aren't really disagreeing with you. We only disagree with your obnoxious personality.

So, you're saying that because you believe in god, he is real, i believe in magical **************** unicorns, doesn't mean they're real... Your logic doesn't make any sense in the world we live in today, with the amount of information available to you on the internet and the way information can be shared in an instant you have no reason to "believe" in things that make no logical sense.

Ok prove to me the big bang happened. Come on, prove it this 'obnoxious' individual. Your logic is so flawed from all perspectives, religious or not. You cant prove god exists or that he doesnt and arguing solves nothing. The sooner the world (and internet) learns that the happier we shall all be.

Ok. I have 3 counterpoints to that statement. 1: This post was directed at people that view the bible/qu'ran/torah as INDISPUTABLE PROOF of the existence of god, not people who believe in god based on faith, and who are aware that there is no evidence for god's existence.  2: The burden of proof is always on the person making the claim, you claim there is a god, then the burden of proof is on you.  If you can not prove the existence of god empirically then I have no reason to believe the claim of his existence.  3: Look up William Lane Craig if you want to see someone trying to &quot;formulate a reasonable opinion to give you undenyable proof that god exists&quot;.  It happens very often, but as a christian you don't experience the ridiculous 			****		 we anti-theists do from our end of the spectrum, so please, do as Jesus tells you, and let your god judge me, since you do not have the relevant experience to fully understand where an anti-theist comes from. (I am basing that supposition off of the wording of your post, feel free to contest it, as I don't know you personally, but I sincerely doubt you've been kicked out of many classes when you were in school for refusing to say &quot;under god&quot; during the pledge or for questioning the use of the bible for teaching history. Also, I highly doubt that a gang of muslims gathered to beat you up for claiming their religion had no place as a theocratic government, and I doubt you've been fired from many jobs for not joining your co-workers in prayer.

Actually, many people try and prove God metaphysically or even empirically; some quite well. No offense, but by making the argument that your beliefs are exempt from traditional scrutiny because they're justified with- by definition- lack of evidence (faith) is almost laughable. I mean, believe what you want and all but the fact I can't disprove Mr. Tickle isn't an argument for his existence.

I really don't know much about religion, so I'm just gonna take my best guess here.

Is it because any being that created the universe could be undetectable in all forms if it so chose, so trying to find evidence would be completely pointless unless it wanted evidence to be found?
User avatar #158 to #92 - draezeth (04/05/2013) [-]
Is what because of that?
User avatar #161 to #158 - ilovehitler (04/05/2013) [-]
Is the reason you should stop asking for proof because of that
User avatar #162 to #161 - draezeth (04/05/2013) [-]
I suppose in part. The bottom line, and the statement I was making, is that faith is not science and so people should stop asking for proof one way or another and either believe or not.
