We cant have any religious discussions on funnyjunk anymore, because all the atheists are branded fedora wearers and all other religions are branded with stupidity and ignorance..


Any argument over it will lack any serious reply. And usually someone will comment with "tips fedora" or other stupid jokes.

what you need are agnostic athiests, and christians who are also open minded, then you can have a proper discussion.

I'm an agnostic atheist. The way I see it, you can be atheist but at the same time, since your science can't disprove the God, similar to the teapot complex, you should also be open-minded as to include the possibility of a God. Being reasonable and open to every argument is what makes you intelligent and an acceptable person in this situation.

except for fedorafags. those guys are too stuck in their little fantasy mlp world, where everything is too perfect to need a god, so they assume he doesn't exist.

Fedoras and atheists and bronies have nothing do with each other.
Seriously.
Why do people not get this?

And your ending statement about "so they assume he doesn't exist" is ******* stupid, and entirely opposite of the reason why people are atheists.

i know that. it was a joke, that i now realise translated very poorly into text, making fun of those pimply faced neckbeards you see in cringe comps. i have a very poor judgement of when to make jokes i'm an atheist and i know that's not why people become atheists. unless you thought i actually believed those neckbeards thought mlp was real, i don't see why you got so angry.

I work with 2 Atheists, 3 Catholics, a Mormon, and a couple other assorted religious people. They are all nice people and none of them impose their religious beliefs on me or each other. The only reason I know their religious preferences is because it slipped out in casual conversation. It's not even a big deal. Don't let a small percentage ruin the whole community.

Listen up you ******* (talking to both Theists and Atheists here), I'm going to educate your asses. No, I'm not going to tell you what side I'm on, because it's not important.

What I am going to do is make sure you goddamn well understand your terminology.

There's two binaries. Theism<->Atheism
and Gnosticism<->Agnosticism.

It's NOT a three-point scale: Theism <-> Agnosticism <-> Atheism

Theism/Atheism refers ONLY to what you believe: is there a god or is there not a god?

Gnosticism/Agnosticism refers ONLY to how sure you are in such a belief. Gnostic claiming that "you know for sure" and Agnostic claiming "I guess I don't know for sure."

You can just as easily be an Agnostic Christian as you can be a Gnostic Atheist.
#244 to #164 - emotep (08/16/2014) [-]
Finally someone who understands the basic terminology. I swear most self proclaimed "agnostics" on this site, have no ******* idea what it means. People are putting everything in boxes like they are choosing a god damn covenant in Dark Souls or something.

I'd never disassociate myself with the term atheism, cause to be quite frank I find the likelihood of deities existing, are about the same as the likelihood that unicorns or dragons are real. [spoiler] But that's just my opinion maaan. [/spoiler]
That doesn't mean I can (nor do I claim to be able to) disapprove every imaginable negative. The same way no one can with 100% certainty disprove every insane tinfoil hat conspiracy theory, such as the Royal family of England being extraterrestrial lizards.

Most atheist doesn't claim that they have proof god doesn't exist, because it is completely nonsense to prove a negative.

So in that sense I'm an agnostic; as I'll never be able to prove, or know for sure, that a divine omni-sentient, omnipotent, and omnipresent being DOESN'T exist.
User avatar #255 to #164 - tsoper (08/16/2014) [-]
The problem is, people who dont know for sure cant really say what they believe in.

Therefore they would consider themselves just agnostics because choosing a side would be contradictory.

And those who know for sure, dont really know for sure. They believe for sure but cant actually prove anything.

Those people who just classify as athiests or christians without agnostic or gnostic in front of it, because thats what they believe for sure.
#403 to #255 - larknok (08/17/2014) [-]
Incorrect.

If you take a basic epistemology class, you would know that Knowledge = True, Justified Belief + Something Else (the something else is part of the Gettier Problem, a larger problem that I won't get into.)

Knowledge is not necessary for belief. Belief is necessary for knowledge.

I don't *know* that a lion won't eat me in the next ten seconds, but I believe that a lion won't eat me in the next ten seconds.
User avatar #404 to #403 - tsoper (08/17/2014) [-]
its possible that a lion would eat you in the next 10 seconds if you are near one!!!...
#406 to #404 - larknok (08/17/2014) [-]
But I am not aware of whether or not there is one near me. Doesn't mean it couldn't happen. I could have missed the radio warnings of an escaped lion. Just because I believe certain things doesn't mean that I know they're true.

I've believed all sorts of things without knowing precisely how accurate my beliefs have been.
User avatar #410 to #406 - tsoper (08/17/2014) [-]
what you are saying, is we should not take anyones beliefs in account because that would be very disadvantageous and dumb.
#411 to #410 - larknok (08/17/2014) [-]
Not at all.

I was trying to explain to you the fundamental difference between knowledge and belief. We hold all sorts of beliefs which do not merit knowledge.

Then I tried to show you that supposing knowledge before belief is contradictory to the definition of knowledge.

I did not put any ethical spin of *SHOULD* and *SHOULD NOT*. I merely tried to create a more meaningful discussion by explaining the terminology relevant to such a debate.

The problem is what happens when those extremists get in charge and group think kicks in. I don't doubt you and your family are good people, but the psychology studies of the last century show that good people can do terrible, terrible things.
#140 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (08/16/2014) [-]
And here I sit with my agnostic ass.
Don't know if god is real, don't care. God has done nothing for me, but it could also simply be that god lets things take it's course and evolution is just that, gods way of things taking it's course. Because I don't think god would be bound by our conceptions of morality, what is good to us is evil to whatever other life may exist in the universe. God has a universe to manage, and it's work might be slow, which explains why things can take millions of years to happen. Or maybe there is no god, and all that has happened in the universe is sheer chance and luck.

Don't know.
Don't care.
Will find out when I die.

I hope nothing happens, I believe nothing happens, and it would seem quite probable that nothing happens.

I know in my mind the most likely thing after death is nothing, just darkness that I can never be aware of that because I have no consciousness, no thoughts or memories. And you know what? That scares me more than anything else.
User avatar #199 to #196 - skabbalabba (08/16/2014) [-]
May i ask why? Because this answer always baffles me.
I hope you're not implying that you will have any experience of this darkness or any form of fear by this point of view, that's not what is meant by 'nothing'.
User avatar #202 to #199 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (08/16/2014) [-]
I won't, and that just makes it worse.
Sure I won't be able to be afraid, and I will have no concept of time or anything, but thats just it. I will know nothing, all my memories erased, nothing to do in the dark but wait, and wait for what? Nothing. It scares me to know that all I've done, I will forget, all I've seen I will forget and never get to experience anything again. This is made a lot worse when you are a grown ass man with a fear of the dark.
User avatar #229 to #202 - skabbalabba (08/16/2014) [-]
Uhm, i think your fear is what i hoped it wouldn't be...

Ok, you say stuff like ''nothing to do but wait'', which makes me wonder if you really know what the scope of nothing is. Nothing isn't darkness, or lack of purpose, or waiting, it's just... nothing. The best way to describe it, in my mind, would be to equate it to how you felt like before you were born. Was that period so scary? That's a stupid question, it didn't feel like anything because there was no you, and place for fear to manifest.

The way you describe it kinda makes it sound like you'll be a blind, deaf, paralized, mentally disabled man who has no functional sensory organs, waiting for a train that will never come.
User avatar #236 to #229 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (08/16/2014) [-]
I can't remember what it was like before I was born either, and the difference is, this time it is forever. I never get to be alive again. It's that nothingness that scares me. I don't think you get what I am saying. Nothing scares me, because all that I am is gone. All my fear and sadness is gone, but with it, is my joy. It's really hard to put my fear into words.
User avatar #253 to #236 - skabbalabba (08/16/2014) [-]
Well, i can't really refute that. All i can say is that i don't have that worry at all, i guess because i see no differences between the ''before life-after death'' scenarios that matter in any way.

Oh well.
User avatar #263 to #140 - TheGodamnBatman (08/16/2014) [-]
I agree, I don't CARE if there is a god. If there is, cool, If there isn't, cool.
But like you, I hope there is SOMETHING after death.
My hope was something like a personal heaven you have compete control of.
At the very least I would want something like reincarnation.
Like you said below, you may lose everything bad in the "Darkness", but you lose everything good too.

agnostic =/= atheist.

Agnostic merely means "ehh, i don't know for sure, but i'll go with it".
Gnostic means "YES I KNOW THIS IS TRUE!"

So, you're a agnostic atheist.
User avatar #356 to #185 - vigilum ONLINE (08/16/2014) [-]
That is not agnosticism. Agnosticism is the stance that nothing is known/nothing can be known about whether or not a god exists.

Agnostic theists are closer to what you're describing. They are the ones who believe while saying they cannot know.

I'd say this is more of apatheism rather than agnosticism. Apatheism implies there may or may not be a god and you just really don't give a **** either way. More of an "ain't nobody got time for that" attitude on the whole thing.

That's just what I've learned through a really awesome religious studies course. Anyone wanna correct/add to this?

Dunno what that anon is talking about.
User avatar #206 to #193 - broswagonist (08/16/2014) [-]
What the anon was talking about was the definition of agnostic. There are 2 main kinds: agnostic theist, agnostic atheist.

1. Believes in a higher existence, but doesn't know what it is particularly
2. Does not believe in a higher existence, but can't tell is one exists or not

You seem to be apatheic, and this is from Wikipedia: "The view that there is no proof of either the existence or nonexistence of any deity, but since any deity that may exist appears unconcerned for the universe or the welfare of its inhabitants, the question is largely academic. Therefore, their existence has little to no impact on personal human affairs and should be of little theological interest."
User avatar #248 to #191 - tsoper (08/16/2014) [-]
apathy means you dont care about life or anything else in general..

i had never seen it be used again to care about religion..

I think agnostic works better because he states he doesnt know and he will never know in this lifetime. If you dont know and dont seek to know, you simply dont care.
#304 to #248 - doyouevenniggerbro (08/16/2014) [-]
The word apathy means you don't care about something. Not the entirety of life, and though not very well known, Apatheism is a illegitimate religious state which fits what EdwardNigma description of his beliefs more.   
Not knowing about the existence or non-existence of a higher deity = Agnostic   
Not caring about about said possibilities = Apatheist   
   
The identifier between the two is whether or not someone cares. So one can be an Agnostic and Apatheist, but it would be more accurate and just generally makes more sense to define them as an apatheist.   
   
 TLDR;ya wrong m8

The important thing to distinguish is whether you're attacking an idea or if you're attacking people. If you say "Christianity is rubbish" then you are saying that the ideology or beliefs are worthless, but not that every single person who holds the ideology is rubbish. Whereas if you say "Christians are rubbish" then obviously that's out of order because you are personally attacking people. It's like if I said "Justin Biebers music is **** " obviously I'm not saying that every single person who likes Justin Bieber is **** , only that his music is **** .

Ok i wanna go serious on that, so:
What are those horrible things christians did to anyone?
Im pretty sure what some of you thought about was crusades and inquisition, so lemme tell you little something about them.
Crusades were about land and gold. There was simply no place in Europe back then, where to live most of people needed to have few fields and **** . But to start a war youre going to need ******* casus belli, the reason to war. Tell me please what could be another reason to war against arabs who are living ******** km away, in times when the most far youve ever gotten in your life was like 30 km from home. Its like when Roman emperors needed money they killed some rich guy with accusation of treason or w/e. So was the religion/treason the true reason of crusade/killing richman?
Will cont in another post since I dont have account on this dumb website.
#82 to #72 - Rascal (08/16/2014) [-]
Inquisition now. First, inqusition introduced your right to defend yoruself in court (I think that was done by Romans as well, but its been forgotten through ages). 2nd, actual victims of inquisition. Lately I heard that the worst one, spanish, killed less than 5k in 140 years of biggest terror. And it was almost 500 years ago, you couldve been killed for anythign if someone really wanted you dead!

It is common knowledge that most land invasions were over the Gs. Glory, Gold, and God. But Christians slaughter countless aboriginals in every corner of the world for not believing in god. When Cortes invaded the Aztecs they slaughtered all natives who wouldn't convert. In Europe whole villages were destroyed because the people had slightly different beliefs. Men were publicly executed or sentenced to prison for life just for expressing their disbelief. This is just to name a few...

Oh come on, Cortes killing natives wasnt the case of religion. The problem was that colonial empires were mostly christian, but they were not killing people because of their belives, they were killing them to make they obey, terror and **** you know.

The epicentre of modern atheism is within humanism. So christians have nothing to worry about.

I'm a firm atheist who dabbles in sun worship. and no, i won't debate you.
It's the closest thing to us that has truly shown itself to be real, unbiased, and beneficial to the whole planet and everything on it, and I think it deserves more praise than we are giving it.
If only I could be so grossly incandescent...

I'm a Christian. I was raised in a Christian household but my religious views are different from my parents, and most people around where I live so I don't go to church often. My best friend, whom I am as closer to than a brother, is a devout Atheist. His brother is a brony, and an atheist, who has rainbow dyed hair, and wears a fedora/black long sleeve thing. But anyways, I will tell you that when people find out that my friend is Atheist, they will try to convert him. This isn't done out of malice or anything, but people are worried about him. Most people around here are Baptist, and they think that he's going to go to Hell unless he is converted. I also think so, but I don't blatantly try to convert him or anything. I simply set a good example for Christians by be willing to listen to his rants, and then calmly tell him my viewpoint without being judgmental.

Atheists and Christians can get along. You just need to accept each other's choices. If you want them to believe what you believe, then set a good example instead of being an asshat.

I'm atheist, and sometimes I give my religious friends **** especially the mormon ones , but for the most part I respect their beliefs, and it really doesn't come up.

I was raised with Kabbalah (all the mysticism without the dogma) on one side and Aztec "Shamanism" on the other. The first time I was exposed to christianity and traditional Judaism I was confused as **** .
