This is actualyl a famous misquote, Marcus Aurelius never said it. I can't find the true source though. But it is a fantastic quote, nonetheless, and one that I live by.

The only way you can possibly argue with something this thorough and simple is if you were dumb as **** , and incapable of understanding. That, or you are a being so intelligent, we'd have no idea why you'd object (even if you explained).

I've found a game I like:
I talk to people trying to figure out what they believe in.
If they are atheist, I say I'm a believing christian.
If they are christians, I say that I'm an atheist.
The most atheist are butthurt, the christians don't care.

I like being agnostic.
User avatar #207 to #200 - Sethorein ONLINE (06/30/2013) [-]
Atheists usually became atheist for a reason. Christians are usually either born christian or inspired to it,

You can imagine why one would be more butthurt than the other.

As an unbiased observation, it's quite interesting how this content has reached the front page when the comments section is full of strongly up-voted comments expressing hatred for Ricky Gervais.

The people who thumb content are clearly different people from those who thumb comments. Quite interesting how the website is divided into these two groups with totally different world views.

I remember when there was black empowerment content on the front page and all the up-voted comments were racist vitriol raging about how black people are monkeys and an inferior species.

Ricky Gervais DOES realize he's just as bad, right? He's such an incredible douchebag when it comes to religion. We get it: you don't believe in it. Cool. So stop tweeting about it, you dumbass.

Not even a follower of a religion, but this guy just annoys the **** out of me.
#161 to #5 - kez (06/30/2013) [-]
He tweets jokes about religion.

If you dont like jokes about religion dont follow him.

He isnt forcing you to read these tweets.

The only incredible douchebag atm is you.

read something he tweets but you dont like, complain like a whiney bitch, read more, complain more, read more complain more, repeat.
#246 to #161 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
1. There's a point when joking about religion, just becomes pure douchebaggery.

2. I don't even have a twitter and i'm forced to read **** like this because someone posts one of these ******* things every. single. day.

3. He's not forcing us, but the faggots who worship him do by posting this **** 24/7

4. He's not being a douchebag. He's right. Ricky is a ******* complete asshole, and even as an atheist, i have no respect for him. There's no reason for him to tweet this ******* ******** . We get it, you don't like religion. **** off.

5. You are a bigger faggot than Ricky Gervais.

You know he's doing that on purpose, right? Like, the point is to act like Christians that act like this, except about Atheism. That's the point. I'm assuming the irony in his comments just goes over your head. Understandable, not all people can have at least a double-digit IQ.

Ricky Gervais gets bashed by religious people daily so its no surprise he retaliates. You can judge him but you aren't the one having thousands of crazy people shouting at you.
User avatar #47 to #44 - chiktikkavaspaus (06/30/2013) [-]
And why do you think he gets bashed? Because he retaliates with more bashing. People of religion bash on him because he's a mean atheist. It's a vicious cycle that neither party is willing to break, and for some reason I just feel that Ricky wouldn't stop even if the other side left him alone.

I'm a Christian and I have no problem with him being an atheist, I have a problem with him being a dick.
User avatar #53 to #47 - Faz (06/30/2013) [-]
It all started because Ricky had religious jokes in his standup comedy routines, once a lot of religious people saw/heard these things they started to target him, his jokes were simply jokes designed to make people laugh and i for one am a firm believer in everything is fair game to joke about as long as its a joke and its not an attack on someone/something. After he became targeted by religious people and groups this is when he started with the tweets attacking back at religion, im not saying Ricky is right but im saying i understand where hes coming from. Also as a famous person you ant simply stop since when you say something its not only going to be seen that one day, you can say a remark a year ago and them someone could come across that remark and then retaliate, even though its something a year old.
User avatar #54 to #53 - chiktikkavaspaus (06/30/2013) [-]
I have no problems with jokes like that too, but he could be the mature one and ignore all of the hate. Instead he makes it worse and worse which then garners more hate. He has no class.
User avatar #56 to #54 - Faz (06/30/2013) [-]
Lets be fair here, famous people are human just like the rest of us and if anything have a more fragile ego since their entire life is determined on how the public see/treat them, when your life revolves around trying to entertain people and you are being called a bad person, being sent death threats and having thousands of people treat you like you are the embodiment of evil....your kinda going to go off the rails a bit.

Ricky Gervais is joking here. He is actually an alround awesome guy, here's a DIRECT quotation from him.
"Even though I don't believe in God ... if someone said, 'We're banning religion,' I'd march to not have it banned because it's your right to believe what you want, and it's your right to be wrong. And I'll fight for that right."
So eat a dick.

User avatar #168 to #5 - tomnash (06/30/2013) [-]
He's a comedian, his style is that he will make jokes out of literally everything that will offend people. I for one find him hilarious, he insults religion because it's seemingly the most prone to offence, which works for him.
#278 to #5 - jboienggh (06/30/2013) [-]
I must say that as a tolerant (or at least I believe I am) Christian, that I manage to watch shows that Ricky Gervais is in without being bothered by his anti-religion ideals but at the same time feel that he jumps on any and every opportunity to bash, even when the subject seems rather inorganically brought up. I don't mind atheists, comedians included, but I do agree that he seems a bit too eager to bash.

I lived in a very atheist community as a kid, but I don't talk **** about them. 70% of my friends were atheists but did we ever try to convert eachother? Belittle eachother? No. Ricky is no better than the Christians he talks **** about. I'm ready for the hate.

If you dont like his religion jokes, dont read them.

#358 to #162 - therealtotodile (07/01/2013) [-]
My "itty bitty feewings" are doing fine. My comment had nothing to do with my personal feelings. It was the fact that he's being an incredibly ignorant hypocrite by posting so much anti-religion content. We all have the right to say what we want on the internet, but it's incredibly inconsiderate to post something that hurts someones feelings because they think it's "smart" or "funny".
#24 to #23 - mrvoodoo (06/30/2013) [-]
I've seen 3 comments like this of his does he really not comment anything else. Why would he use twitter if it didn't increase his popularity? I'm sure it was a stunt to publicitize himself.

"I'm ready to hate."
You may not realize ti but, at least in my opinion, you're being passive-agressive, you're getting angry (raging) in a pacisifistic manner: "I'm kind of getting tired of this Ricky Gervais guy. We get it. You're atheist. Congratulations. I lived in a very atheist community as a kid, but I don't talk **** about them."
User avatar #27 to #26 - therealtotodile (06/30/2013) [-]
That's not the same as raging. And I said, "I'm ready for the hate." By this I mean that a lot of atheists on funnyjunk look to Ricky Gervais as the king of atheists basically. So I was "ready" for them to reply to my comment in a hateful way.

On the internet, everything gets made fun of - race, sexuality, other stereotypes, etc. Why should religion be exempt?

Christianity may be the majority religion in most first-world countries, but that should exempt them from being butthurt?

There are faggots from every religion; classifying a whole religion by a few arrogant people is both ignorant and a tad childish.

Is christianity not forcing itself on people though? It isn't possible to hold public office if you don't have religious faith, and with the majority of the U.S. being christian that faith is almost certainly christian. There are people in government who take their morality and ethics from the bible and try to pass that into legislation -> gay marriage, abortion, etc. Ricky has a good reason to post about how absurd religion is when **** like this is going on.

>outside, hundreds of screaming Christians are shouting out bible passages and telling Ricky he is going to burn in hell as they rip away at the 2x4's nailed to his windows
> At 8 AM Ricky makes his way to his modified car which has been turned into a tank and backs out his driveway, backing over more angry Christians as they throw communal wine and bread at the man's windshield
