Wait. Is this a POSITIVE religious pic?
@Hiskid, I thought it was just a generally uplifting picture, the comments seem to have taken it another way.
Well this was an uplifting picture until every one got all angry for no reason.. Gotta love the Internet!
"Excuse me, waiter? There's too much religion in my funny."
@Krinko, *bows down* THANK YOU
@Krinko, eh. When theres a pic cmparing jesus and hitler...its a different story.
Did my comment not post? Well @IAmTheFather , I never said that what I said was proof God exists. I attempted to say that I believe that there is more to life than a random but extremely complex pattern of events and others believe there is simply that. Don't attempt to insult me with something you looked up on google. I have no wish to convince anyone that Christ is the saviour right now, because it is not the time place or context to do so. I was simply attempting to defend something I love. Many atheists say that Christians shouldn't shove religion down another's throat. I expect the same courtesy. Thank you
@SuperbDork, I'd also like to add to @jklyt1 to say Christians actually believe that our loving God sends people to Hell because, though he loves us, he is also Holy and Just. Our sin is unholy and he cannot be in the presence of that. He is just in that he must punish us for our sins. But he also offers us forgiveness and saving. We believe Jesus was born, lived a holy life, and died because God didn't want to lose us. He loves us so much that he gives us an infinite number of chances in our life to atone for our imperfection
@SuperbDork, but Hell still wasn't created for sinners. Does He technically send them there? Yes. But He also gives them a free pass out if they choose to take it. Which is a lot more than can be said for fallen angels.
@jklyt1, I feel like you agreed but not totally. But that's cool, there's a lot of room to discuss and I feel like you're gradually calming from the pointlessly hostile argument that just finished. Cool off time... awkward ending to the night
@SuperbDork, we agree on the main point no reason to argue over split hairs.
@SuperbDork, my child was kidnapped and my life ruined by someone that believes its all okay since they can just make amends before they die. YOUR IDEAS ON LIFE ARE RETARDED. shut it with your religious bs propaganda
This is out of context. Jesus had twelve disciples. There were many people who followed him.
@motherheffer, disciples and followers are two major differences.
I came here for laughs stuckpixel, not this.
@Timekeeper II EST, I dunno, I laughed
@Timekeeper II EST, I didn't find this funny. Just interesting.
And Richard Dawkins also has millions and he's amazing
I love how the moment religion is mentioned people lose their minds. Just because you disagree or dont believe in it, doesn't mean you have to get immediately offended and butt hurt. Just move on and don't fish for arguments. It's not that hard.
I feel like making a sacrilegious comment... But the down votes are strong.
@GrandCarnifex, boils on hell. Come on in the water is fine
@IAmTheFather, oh. Well, since you're the father!
All hail the greatest con man in history. Jesus I too wish to inspire an entire religion with my death.
@IAmTheFather, no not this one. Down vote the half formed abomination of a comment. Kind of like the half formed fetuses that extremely religious people c claim are wile people
Yes but jesus has created a religion that is responsible for more suffering and death than anything else in this world
@sexgodgodofsex, you could say the same thing about many religions, even those who don’t believe in religion. Like atheists are taking a chance that proof becomes fake and not a chance after death.
Hitler did nothing wrong
Also I would like to point out that the population during "jesus time" was much smaller then during "hitler time", so 12 people 2000 years ago could conceivably be similar to millions during WW2. In conclusion this picture in invalid and I rest my case!
@Scotty12321, plus nazi propaganda was widespread.
@Scotty12321, what do you think the population was back then? 200 people total? Besides, jesus had hundreds (if not thousands) of follwers, just 12 diciples...
@Scotty12321, thats not true. Idiot
All hail the greatest con man in history. Jesus you are an Ina
@IAmTheFather, please down vote that abomination.
@IAmTheFather, religion IS the biggest con. Its true sorry. Or at least a good assumption based on the knowledge and information we have
@IAmTheFather, ah yes, uneducared opinions from the pop-culture theory that religion is evil. I'm cool with atheists, but you clearly lack the intelligence to consider yourself as such, so please void this app of your stupidity so we can go on with our day.
@BabaBooey, I know but the half formed comment must be sent to oblivion.
@Genesis Rhapsodos , the only in educated one here is you. I didn't say religion is evil. Just that a talented con man could have pulled all the stuff Jesus did with similar ease and fan fair.
@IAmTheFather, I'd argue further, but you've made it clear that you just want a flame war. Try ifunny, they seem to like the concept more.
@BabaBooey, And may I ask, what knowledge do we have that proves it to be false? The question that most religions answer is not what happened after the dawn of time, but how something could be created out of nothing, which all knowledgeable scientists admit, and also why any of it happened. Our lives are a literal impossible circumstance. So why would someone be at fault for an attempt at gaining meaning?
@IAmTheFather, your idea is being downvoted not just your mistake. You're free to have your views on whether or not there is a higher power but saying so in the way you did is just asinine and shows you're just trolling.
@SuperbDork, I'm just saying that religion was one of the worst things that happened to humanity, it has resulted in many wars and violence. When I said that religion isn't real it was because of all the horrible things that happen in this world. If there was such a thing as god it probably wouldn't happen. Also, if god loves us so much why would he damn people who sin to hell? He created us, he made us with faults. Why would he sentence sinners to a eternity of misery. He himself made human nature and the wrongs that may come with it. We just have no evidence that indicates that religion exists. Just some books
@SuperbDork, do me a huge favor and every time you think. Random chance. Replace it with extremely complex pattern. Also don't go tossing around the god of the gaps theory. It's childish and easily refutable. Just google it.
@SuperbDork, that's the problem with the most officials in religion and science. They all think one can not exist without the other but in reality it's the opposite. Religion is the why and science is the how. A reaction can't occur without a catalyst, thus God is a feasible catalyst to evolution (if that's what happened).
@BabaBooey, I have a feeling you don't actually want me to answer your questions.
@jklyt1, it's not trolling. On more secular Internet groups it is well believed that if Jesus existed. That in and of itself is hard to say due to how the entire New Testament was written 300-500 years after the events they chronicle. He was likely just a con man with some revolutionary ideas for his time.
@IAmTheFather, the "entire" New Testament was not written 300-500 years after Jesus death, that is a very ignorant falacy. And ok well this isn't an atheism sub reddit so sorry if your ideas have warm welcome you wanted. Jesus himself never promoted war or killing. Most wars are caused by greed over land or money even the ones disguised as "holy wars". The crusades were not about religion, they were about land. Jesus taught to treat your neighbor as yourself and that greed caused strife. If anything this "con man" was trying to prevent future wars by dropping some knowledge bombs. Jesus never caused a war, and just because some people started them in his name doesn't mean he supported them.
@IAmTheFather, *didn't have the warm welcome you wanted
@BabaBooey, we were damned thanks to Adam and Eve. Yes He could have made us robots that all do his bidding but what point would rhat have been? He didn't have to create us at all so why not let us have free will like Him? God doesn't make anyone with faults, any faults we are born with or learn are a direct result of Adam and Eves fall. Yes I know it's unfair but we all have tainted blood since they were everyone's earliest ancestors. Hell wasn't even made with sinners in mind. It was originally created for Lucifer and all the other fallen angels but since humanity fell as well they had to have the same punishment. Fun fact though the Bible actually says that Jesus himself descended into Hell, I assume to give those in Hell their secons chance, so it's a bit unfair to say God doesn't understand humanity's pain since not only did he die one of the most painful deaths He also went into Hell himself. None of this means you have to believe it but I thought it'd be nice to shed some light.
@jklyt1, what evidence do we have that any of this is true? Based on the way the world seems to work it seems that there is no such thing as god. Also I could say that Dracula is real and is the real god. U could say that is absurd, but what makes less credible and more absurd than ur theory? Again u have NO evidence that god is real. Ha
@BabaBooey, did you really just end your statement with "ha"? What are you six years old? I was trying to be nice. Not everyone has to beleive what I believe, but it would be nice if you'd respect my beliefs as I respect yours. And if you're gonna play the "NO evidence" card then where is your evidence of His non-existence? Yes believing in a god you can't see takes faith, a lot of it, but so does believing in a process you've never seen happen (i.e. evolution(also I believe evolution is real but I believe there had to be God to start the process))
@jklyt1, i am six. Let me go to sleep. At the end of the day u are following something with no evidence whatsoever. U are spending way to much time on this. Go do something else besides arguing for something when u HAVE NO EVIDENCE
@BabaBooey, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, my friend. If I'm right I go to Heaven. If you're right then nothing ANYONE has EVER done has ANY meaning whatsoever and life as we know it is pointless. Mines the safer bet. Night, man. Thanks for being a disrespectful close minded prick.
@BabaBooey, I find it funny you accuse someone of providing no evidence when, so far, you refuse to provide evidence yourself. It seems like he was simply trying to defend himself. And his beliefs. As am I (I said that over in my other comments)
@jklyt1, "absence of evidence is not evidence of absence" does not apply to people making claims as urs. Just because there is no god it does not mean that nothing matters. I don't need to believe in god to give meaning to my life. I do things because I want to. U are just afraid and u want to believe in something but u are just too scared to give ur self any meaning. Bitch bye I already jacked it so I'm sleepy
@BabaBooey, explain why my ststement doesn't apply. Is it just cause you don't want it to? Ok ya its cause you just don't want it to see ya douchebag.
@jklyt1, because if I was to base my belief on the meaning of everything on something. I would at least want some evidence, I wouldn't just follow it blindly
@BabaBooey, so you choose to follow nothing? Ok. A man who believes nothing will fall for anything. It's a true statement. But anyways man I have class in the morning I'm sure you have that or work, so I'm going to sleep. Enjoy your hateful, meaningless, and close minded life.
Yep, and one betrayed Jesus... That ended well!
