There isn't any actual evidence that reality exists either sooo...
what im trying to say is, philosophy is philosophy and science is science, try not to merge them and if someone has different beliefs than you just leave the topic alone

Reality can be summed up with this really "I think therefore I am". While it's not really evidence, it's widely believed that Reality is real. Any person who thinks reality isn't real, is just mentally Ill.

"belief in fairy tales" != seeking spiritual understanding and a deeper faith-based meaning to humanity

...By way of a book several thousand years old with rules that are utterly stupid if you actually read the thing.

>are utterly stupid if you actually read the thing
>are utterly stupid

apparently i find it utterly stupid
User avatar #74 to #72 - corso ONLINE (07/01/2013) [-]
Glad to see we're all on board.
#76 to #74 - masterboll (07/01/2013) [-]
i hope you know im being sarcastic

and i hope youre being sarcastic

because i think youre a faggot for assuming that everyone finds the rules stupid
User avatar #79 to #76 - corso ONLINE (07/01/2013) [-]
I'm saying if you had READ it, and thus all the rules you are supposed to follow, you'd find them stupid.

Because that's what they are. They were written thousands of years ago by sexist, racist dudes who were just fine with slavery and incest and having several 14 year old wives.

>thousands of years ago by sexist, racist dudes who were just fine with slavery and incest and having several 14 year old wives

please elaborate
User avatar #87 to #86 - corso ONLINE (07/01/2013) [-]
If you need an elaboration on that, then you clearly haven't read it cover to cover.
User avatar #88 to #87 - masterboll (07/01/2013) [-]
people translate the text in many ways, im asking for what made you believe that its been written by sexist, racist dudes who are fine with slavery and incest etc.

you cant expect me to agree with you if i dont see it the way you do
User avatar #89 to #88 - corso ONLINE (07/01/2013) [-]
Like the one where if a man rapes a woman, he must take her as a wife if anyone sees. And of course if he refuses, she's stoned to death.
User avatar #91 to #89 - masterboll (07/01/2013) [-]
the only websites i can find this view of it is on the anti-islamic websites whereas other sources state that rape is forbidden in islamic laws

ill get back to you after if i can establish if its a misinterpretation of the text or if it really is openly promoting ungodly acts
User avatar #93 to #91 - corso ONLINE (07/01/2013) [-]
If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days. - Deuteronomy 22:28-29
User avatar #97 to #93 - masterboll (07/01/2013) [-]
again with the mistranslation

its giving instructions to a person on how to deal with a man who has managed to talk a virgin into sleeping with him

its doesnt necessarily mean "rape"
User avatar #98 to #97 - corso ONLINE (07/01/2013) [-]
Lay hold isn't the same as seduce.
User avatar #99 to #98 - masterboll (07/01/2013) [-]
>implying that the Book of Deuteronomy was written in english
>implying that the original word couldnt have translated to anything other than "lay hold"
>implying that "lay hold" means "rape"

And this is why it's impossible to argue with you people. We give you something from your book that doesn't make sense or is just plain stupid and ignorant, and instead of actually considering it you just "SMOKESCREEN, SMOKESCREEN, SO THE TRUTH CAN NOT BE SEEN"
User avatar #101 to #100 - masterboll (07/01/2013) [-]
well if you had looked into the rest of the text instead of translations provided by anti-religion atheists then maybe you would have gotten some context with the quote

youre just as much of a stupid and ignorant **** as you make the religious out to be

holy books dont promote evil acts, which is why YOU should be questioning the information that youre given instead of blindly believing that religion promotes sexism, racism, slavery etc. because an atheist has told you so
User avatar #102 to #101 - corso ONLINE (07/01/2013) [-]
I didn't get it from an anti-religion place, I got it from the ******* "Holy book" on my desk.
User avatar #103 to #102 - masterboll (07/01/2013) [-]
youre either really **** at translating or you simply dont have the ability to read something in context

you actually made me shovel through a heap of anti-religious ******** just so i could find out that you misinterpreted a bit of text
User avatar #106 to #103 - corso ONLINE (07/01/2013) [-]
Nice to see you ignored the one where I literally typed the whole thing. www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=P8tfuBIutLI&list=PLB962E39FF5D6A460#t=86s
User avatar #104 to #103 - corso ONLINE (07/01/2013) [-]
No, I didn't. I even typed exactly what it said.
User avatar #105 to #104 - masterboll (07/01/2013) [-]
because it totally said that "if a man rapes a woman, he must take her as a wife if anyone sees. And of course if he refuses, she's stoned to death"

nice to know how accurate your understanding of religion is

What of those scientist who still believe in God?
This quote was probably made by some athiest who shares the same one sided thinking that the westboro baptist church do.

Albert Einstein was Christian...just saying

inb4 people talk about only 8 percent of scientists believing in a God. That was a biased survey. They said a God that is present in our lives and answers prayers. If it was 'do you believe in a supremem higher creator', the answer would be a lot higher.

People don't understand the atheism and religion argument. People have the right to believe what they believe even if it may not be likely. Many atheists come with the point that religion shouldn't be because it cannot be true. Religious people, believe it or not, don't care about what atheists think about their beliefs because they can believe in what they want.
#38 to #33 - chudboy (07/01/2013) [-]
The problem is, when Religion influences laws, and what is taught by schools. You can't teach creationism in Schools, because what the believe is not based on fact. It is based of fact. While you teach Evolution, and the fact that the world is 4 billion years old, because those are facts, and have evidence and enough research to provide proof. That is what most Atheists like myself are against. They teach the wrong things, and then you become ignorant of actual facts and dismiss them.
User avatar #27 - wafflecopper (06/30/2013) [-]
and then this post shows up

People post crap like this on this website somehow expecting a master theologian to be on a godless sight like FJ (i love FJ) whereas he proceeds to stutter in disbelief at the epiphany of this one picture. This single picture which ends centuries of debate, and completely shatters the world's largest religion.

Feeling Euphoric yet OP?

so brave
User avatar #60 - blackreign (07/01/2013) [-]
So its called "fairy tales" when I choose to believe something that actually explains to me how stuff was created and gives me hope in the world rather then something that's based entirely on theory and is used to try and explain something that's already been explained in the so called fairy tale simply because people refuse to believe in what they cannot see or understand? Which is entirely the problem with science is that it is used to try to explain things that are not meant to be explained but simply are supposed to entirely believed by faith! And because you try to live in ignorance doesn't mean that God doesn't still love you all the same!

tl;dr: I hate when people use science as a way to try and disprove the existence of God when in reality he is the true answer, no theories involved!
User avatar #65 to #60 - blackreign (07/01/2013) [-]
Just to clear something up, I am not saying that I believe all science is false or anything like that. I just don't think that science should be the only basis for how we look at the world and how we explain things in this world.
#67 to #60 - WillJi (07/01/2013) [-]
-"explains to me how stuff was created" Does it really explain? Answer is no. "X created Y" is not an explanation. These merely declarations. An actual explanation would be something like "Event X happened because of these properties following this equation, which later on creates Y as opposed to choices A, B or C. The math and data are all here to guide you through the process step by step."

-"gives me hope in the world" Not a reason for something to be true. Lots of things give people hope, including other religions that oppose yours.

-"Theory" in scientific terms does not mean guesswork or conjecture. It means the most accurate explanation to date for how something works. Examples: Germ Theory, Atomic Theory and Theory of Gravity.

-"things that are not meant to be explained" How would you even begin to justify which things are meant to be explained and which aren't? If something is not meant to be explained then that would mean no matter how hard you try, you can't get any relevant data on it. But how can you tell the difference between unobtainable data vs you simply haven't tried hard enough? You can't tell the difference. Only thing you can do is keep trying. There's only the explainable and the yet to be explained.

-"believed by faith" The irony here is that faith by definition means to believe despite no proof or against contradicting proof. That is also a textbook example of "living in ignorance".
#69 to #67 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
Disagreement against his opinion and statement is not necessary, you're arguing semantics with him. Just live life as a happy atheist instead of a bitter one so that less people become bitter religious people and stay happy ones. It's a simple theory of mine that people who have their beliefs insulted like you less.
#70 to #69 - WillJi (07/01/2013) [-]
I'm not really an atheist. I'm a rationalist and I do believe you can have your own opinions. However, I strongly dislike people believing in incorrect information, which is what every statement above addresses. Note, I did not actual say "God doesn't exist because..." I merely pointed out that THOSE reasons are not proof or that those things are being misunderstood. You can never really disprove things when following science, you can only reduce the probabilities.



User avatar #52 - drewsky (07/01/2013) [-]
Just because you can answer some questions doesn't mean that God doesn't exist. It's not fair to call it fairy tales when you can't prove or disprove God.
User avatar #78 to #52 - emptysuperman (07/01/2013) [-]
Prove there isn't a ghost elephant jizzing in your mouth.

What can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof.
User avatar #83 to #78 - drewsky (07/01/2013) [-]
I'm not dismissing it, because there could be one. There's no proof for or against it.
#50 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
Being an atheist doesn't make yous smart. Chances are you're just a normal asshole that jumped on a bandwagon.

I don't think it actually works that way, so many people believe religion and science are two opposite ends of the same spectrum. That isn't true. Religion is about living your life to good morals and understanding lessons given in the Bible as a guide to not make mistakes.

Science is about learning how the entire clock of the universe ticks and how the foundations of everything are built.
User avatar #113 to #108 - greatgranpapy ONLINE (07/29/2013) [-]
I'm sorry, but taking lessons from the bible? You do know that it tells us that slavery is okay, our wives are our property, being "bad" constitutes a world wide genocide, and God is willing to put one of his most faithful followers through the pain of losing EVERYTHING just to prove a point, and had David's child die a painful death to teach David a lesson.

Strong christian science (I would say enthusiast but i'm not super smart) enjoy-er internet high five! The two can easily coexist as neither one can disprove the other. :3

OP is just causing the regular ********* again.
User avatar #62 - welfarekid (07/01/2013) [-]
I respect someone who stands up for what they believe more than someone who is ignorant of an entirely other side of the earth experience.
While I am here I don't want to be a bitter atheist, or a brainwashed religious cultist I want to experience all of the world and culture. I was born an raised in a christian family, and I would like to embrace other religion. You have a **** outlook on things. And most people probably aren't going to like you.
