I love everything about this. However, the contradictions and flaws in religion is not the main reason why I dislike it. I more so dislike it because it makes people's minds docile and content to not finding the real truth. They fear the unknown, so they trust on religion to fill in the blanks of what we don't know rather than to work on finding the actual information on why or how something happens.
Perhaps you are. Although, your intimate knowledge of what the bible actually says may be the reason you do not believe in it. I try to avoid beating them into submission with their own religion, but rather with logic. I guess you can say we have different tactics, but the same goal. Personally, as I stated before, the biggest issue I have with religion (Christians especially) is the anti-intellectual culture that goes with it in modern times. Hundreds of years ago I could at least say great music and art came out of it (Mozart's Requiem mass in D minor for example)....but that's gone now. To me religiously motivated or not those pieces of culture should be honored, but as art about mythology rather than truth.
Well, maybe a combination of the two would be better? 25% of the Bible and 75% logic or such. But I find the logic thing a little too tiresome, it's like teaching sheep math... religion and logic just doesn't go well together. I honestly don't have the patience for it most of the time. I do, do it now and then, but then I got to be in the right mood for it.
Yes... "how do you explain a sunset without god?" and "if we evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?" comes to mind...
The creating faulty humans thing is what really gets me. He gives man a flaw that he condemns them for...in other words, blaming us for something he did, like he needed an excuse to torture people for all eternally in hell. Not to mention that he must be both insecure and petty if he needs worship so much that even one person not doing it is condemned. It really puts into perspective how unjust he is.
Kinda like a drunken father hitting his kids because they cry, and they cry because he is hitting them... dat flawless logic! Religious logic one-on-one! Just like with this one fiskefyren.deviantart.com/art/…
What about the god who had to be tortured and killed by humans in order to allow himself to forgive them? XD
But yes, God has some serious psychological problems. He needs help :/ we need a hashtag for this XD
"What about the god who had to be tortured and killed by humans in order to allow himself to forgive them?" How does that even work? Why does God need a sacrifice to forgive something he did? Can't he do it with out tortuing his son/himself? That is just insane. Also the part where Jesus says "Why have thou forsaken me God?" shows it wasn't a real sacrifice anyways...and he got out of hell in three days. Compared to Prometheus who was eternally tortured till freed by Hercules, Jesus got off way too easily. And off course people are still sinning and apparently going to hell, so it was worthless in the first place. The fact that God required a human sacrifice at all shows that he isn't all loving. Here is an issue I have with the free will defense. If god really cared about free will, he would save those who would have there free will violated by rapists and murders. That would promote the maximum amount of free will, but God chooses not too...because somehow that would violate free will...even though people are already having their free will violated in the situations I already mentioned, not too mention other sufferings like earthquakes, and diseases that don't seem to differentiate between
They're just scared of him, they need to worship this God because they were poisoned as children, and were forced to believe in this. Too bad the amazing Spock wouldn't be enough to have these God people see through their forced beliefs, they probably think God is perfection, and that our minds can't comprehend it, so we have no right to criticize God in anyway. All due to an uneccessary fear.
Lolwut. Nothing about what he said in this quote was out of character - YOU just have too much wishful thinking and a severe disconnect from reality. I love how you couldn't even be bothered to respond to the poor person you're harassing in the end. Sucks to be such an immature brat like you, I guess.
Also, I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if both of these accounts with the suspicious lack of icons are both sockpuppets for some other sad turd who refuses to accept reality.
WOW... you really are in denial... you shouldn't be a Christian by any change? I've done nothing beside informing you of the truth but you don't seem to like the truth, which is pretty normal for a Theist (the complete denial of reality). And who the fuck cares about my "demeanour"? You simply don't like facts and I won't sugarcoat reality so it's more pleasing to you.
Oh, but giving terrorist acts the Hollywood treatment doesn't... especially when they focus on Americans acting heroic in the wake of a said tragedy. That stuff is what really turns me off. That's why I've still not seen stuff like "Zero Dark Thirty" or any of the 9/11 movies that came out about ten years ago.
Americans can have all kinds of media forcing them in one way or another to relive some type of tragedy and get themselves desensitized from it, but you talk shit about the christian god and they're up in arms. Also, it's cool for christians to push their beliefs and crap on everyone else, but if you say anything otherwise or let a "goddamn" slip, you really see that butthurt attitude come out.
There is a reason for why I'm very anti-america I really hate them... "american is the greatest country in the world" yes... greatest... it has the greatest debt in the entire world, most of it's people have no education, 14% of them can't even fucking read! over 80% of them believe that a guy sits in the sky and watches over them... they know more about reality shows than they do their own history or their so beloved Bible, they're amongst the most ignorant of people in the entire world... and i haven't even touch all their bullshit aspects! America is a piece of shit, full of dumb, fat, uneducated, misinformed retards...
Sorry... you were saying? ah, yes! Wave that great flag all over the place and pissing on everyone else and still be like "We're number one!" yes... that is America... how pitiful... i've given up their movies, i'll never forget the pearl harbour one where the Japanese attacked the hospital... in reality they didn't even shatter a single window on any such facilities... American just demonise them like they do everyone else, because only America is true and just! Trust me, if American didn't have all the military power that they do, they would be broken and shatter now from all the enemies that they have made themselves, just waiting to have their moment of vengeance over the ignorance and stupidity that is America.
wow... i'm really getting out of topic here, i'm just a little more spiteful today... but yes! we're right... heck, you ever seen fox news and how they try to trash people that doesn't suck the some God cock as they do? such loving Christians... wow... talking about stupidity in it's purest form... but yes, you're absolutely right! maybe you should leave that horrible place?
