@Click to toggle, As an apathetic agnostic, *fist bump*
@Click to toggle, are we running low on popcorn? I brought more.
@Click to toggle, I'm here for the agnostic party. We need anything else?
@Click to toggle, agnosticism is the easiest religion to troll
I could say the same thing about homosexuality
@Affection Erection, i'd hug you for your comment... But... Your username....
@Angular Notspice, come hug me then. I promise not to get an erection, but I might sniff your hair a little
@gmastern1996, that's insensitive to bald people you animal.
@Affection Erection, yeah let's just hate on people for what they can't control cause this is totally the 1950s like am I right.
@Tallest man in world, sandy claws and Jon targaryn, you need more guidance than any made up deity can provide. Sincerely, a decent human being.
@Affection Erection, well yes but if homosexuals weren't denied basic secular rights based upon religious back pressure then it wouldn't really be where it's at today.
TL;DR - hate on both sides escalated this, and hate is wrong
@Tallest man in world, And this comment. Was there literally any purpose to this beyond trying to be hostile? "Decent human being"? Pretty ironically jerkish, buddy.
@Affection Erection, or heterosexuality, anything is annoying if you go on and on about
@Arbitrage L, I don't see how I was hostile. I simply said they need guidance. Are you ok? Because I find you hard to take seriously.
@18bluecat, I understand. I get carried away when I feel passionate about an issue. I respect your views and opinions, but I just love debating.
@Tallest man in world, you were pretty hostile toward all of Christianity by saying "made up deity." However you didn't outright say that so I might have misjudged that. However you were judging people based on a vote, that's kind of messed up
@Tallest man in world, I can understand that, the Internet is a great place for debate... Kind of
@Affection Erection, you're right on so many levels
@Affection Erection, straight people pretty much do the same thing everyday .. we the gay community only have gay pride once a year.. your argument is invalid sorry...
@Affection Erection, touché
@Affection Erection, *slow clap* well played my man. Well played...
I believe in evolution. Why? Pokemon.
@Anonymous Jack III, I believe in evolution because it is fact and has proven evidence behind it.
@LostLogic, A creationist is among us.
Fides et ratio. Look it up.
@LostLogic, it's a theory with inconclusive supporting evidence. Objectively speaking, it is far from a fact.
@Doctor Krieger, the only reason scientists say 'theory' is because you butthurt religious people would outright grab your pitchforks and torches and begin to riot those scientists. It is proven fact, you just need to look at all the evidence to come to a qualitative conclusion. Do I you really think some guy just pointed his finger and went like "frog there, fish there, sheep there" NO! All these creatures evolved on a tree of subordinating creatures. Do some research bud.
@Doctor Krieger, it is a "theory" because it cannot be proven as a law, yet has enough supporting evidence to not just be a hypothesis. It isn't "just theory by name because reasons", it is accepted to be theory by every major accredited body. I do not need to "do some research bud", you simply need to get your head out of your arse.
@Doctor Krieger, meh, replied to myself on accident. Nothing to see here, move along.
@Doctor Krieger, *applaudes because you have done your research*
@Affection Erection, your name gives me a heart boner.
*Grabbs popcorn and waits to see what people have in store for this picture*
@MrLampoon, *joins you and others and we let the Advanced Flame War commence*
When I see people like this and they find out that I'm an atheist and try to preach to me, I know they mean well, but this is all I really hear. "Hey! God loves you! But only if you pretend to be someone that you're not and live your entire life as a lie and obey the rules written in a 2000 year old book by people who may or may not have been telling the truth, about a man that may or may not have existed, and may or may not have been the son of god. Otherwise you're going to hell. Sorry." But seriously, respect to all those that are religious and don't try and shove it down people's throats. Sorry for the long post. Rant over.
@Bangus the Endowed, I go to a pretty religious school, where if you're not Christian then you're automatically hated by everyone, and you just summed up everything people try to convert me from being Agnostic.....you are now temporarily my favorite person.
@Bangus the Endowed, I'm not sure whether to dislike your comment for the gross example or to upvote because of the last bit... but in any manner of speaking I see your point and I'm sorry if that's how you have been shown Christianity
@Sw1per, I don't mean to cause offence, but I think that I speak for the vast majority of non-Christians when I say that what I have described in my previous comment almost always happens when I meet a Christian and they find that I'm a non-Christian.
@Sw1per, But thank you for your apology, regardless. I know that the vast majority of Christians are good people. I am fully aware that it is the minority that act this way, but that is still a lot of people.
@Bangus the Endowed, non taken. And I understand that many Christians feel that they need to do it that way (ex people walking around LA and such with giant signs) and it's too bad because it gives us a bad rep. I also thank you for acknowledging the fact that not all Christians are like that.
@Bangus the Endowed, Jesus's existence has been thoroughly proven by historians/archeologists, so I suppose it's a matter of whether or not you believe he was truly the being he is said to be.
@Magnamon, I agree with your comment. However I find it strange and difficult to believe, that scientists can say for definite that someone existed over 2000 years ago, in a fairly heavily populated country which was fairly notorious for having lost a great deal of it's history over the course of time and the ravages of many wars.
@Bangus the Endowed, well, when you cause as much of a societal uproar as he did, it's kind of hard to erase every last trace. Those pesky Romans and their corrupted philosophies. Tisk tisk.
@Magnamon, that's true. But don't forget that Jesus was as much of a symbol as he was (supposedly) the son of god. The Jews wanted a leader and a general more than a prophet and a teacher, so anything he did would have been exaggerated. He himself may have been entirely fabricated as a response to the increase of roman presence in that specific area of the Middle East. After all. He was killed (supposedly) for simply being there. I think this shows how effective a character like this could be.
@Bangus the Endowed, I'm on this guys side, although I'm not fully Atheist, as i have no clue if there is a God nor do i intend to seek one or worship one hence the term Agnostic, his side makes more sense as we do not know if the Bible was truly written off of facts and so i just leave it be to find out for myself about life after death for when i die (i capitalized God and the Bible to show i still have respect for those who are loyal to their religion and not shove it down peoples throats)
@Bangus the Endowed, wow harsh crowd. Getting nothing but downvotes for stating something that can be (moderately) backed up by online research in reputable locations.
@Magnamon, I just think that people should respect the opinions of others, whether it is backed up by facts or not, and I try to do this to the best of my ability. However, when people shove their beliefs in my face, everything from Christianity to being a Vegan, I get more than a little p1ssed off.
I am a Christian, and some Christians annoy me. Showing loving people is how to not only minister, but just to befriend them. I know this is serious, but I apologize for people that have been hurt by christians trying to drill our religion into you and make you feel like you are a horrible person. Sorry to get religion in your funnypics. :)
@honestliar, *love to. not loving
Like if you are an atheist or agnostic
Homosexuality is a completely natural phenomenon that is prevalent in all mammals and some birds. Humans aren't the only ones.
Only the most arrogant and/or ignorant people deny that humans are mammals.
@I Are Lebo, I'm not just quoting from statistics. I have first hand proof. I've seen two female cows humping each other, and one of my two female dogs enjoys eating out the other.
It's a little disturbing, but the other one really doesn't seem to mind.
You want to drastically change one of the most fundamental parts Lizzy but claim not to hate her. Yeah that 'totally' makes sense.
@Nyxcat, If your sexuality is one of the most fundamental parts of a person, then there is a problem with that person, gay or straight. And it's not about hate, it's about trying to do the right thing.
@ archiethesailor, "right" is relative. Please leave your opinions at the door before entering Funnypics
@gmastern1996 "Right" is relative' is a debate in itself. So, you can't just say a claim like that and expect it to be true, cuz if it's relative then you saying it is relative, does that make it right? Or is it just relative?
@TheJediJesus, but relativity is a theory, so should it still be taught in schools as fact?
@gmastern1996, Actually, morality is objective and therefore, right is absolute.
@ archiethesailor, then why don't I think it is doing the right thing when someone forces their religious beliefs on another? If right was absolute, wouldn't everyone feel the same way about the issue?
@gmastern1996, No, not necessarily. People can get confused about things. Which is why Muslims in the middle east think that honor killings are right and people use to think that slavery was fine. Think of it this way, people don't usually know math or science until taught the same way people don't don't usually understand morality until taught.
@ archiethesailor, until taught what? The entire basis of your argument is "I know what is right because I say so."
@gmastern1996, Until taught the difference between what is right and what is wrong. And no, my argument isn't about the difference between right and wrong, it's about how morality is objective.
@ archiethesailor, what is "right" and what is "wrong" is entirely subjective! It all depends on how you are raised! Who are you to claim that only you know what is right? Who's to say that those Muslims don't have the right idea? You think slavery is wrong. I think slavery is wrong. Why? Only because of how we were raised. Thus "right" is subjective, rather than absolute.
@gmastern1996, No, there are several theories on morality, objectivism and relativism being the big ones here, but only one theory is the right one, only one is factual, that one is objectivism. I don't make up what is right or wrong, I just follow it. A society can't stand on relative morals.
@gmastern1996, no. "Right" is fact, and in this case that would be science.
@LostLogic, whelp, I think I'm "right" that you are "wrong."
@ archiethesailor, I'm sorry this has so many downvotes, I agree with you. There are more things in life to define a person than what they do with their genetalia.
Pt. 2 but I won't bash fhem for it I've had plenty of gay friends they're cool and some are funny it'd not my place in this world to judge and I try my best not to everyone has their beliefs and everyone lives their lives I have heard of gay people becoming straight (or I guess "becoming" is a bad word to use) but I've also heard of "straight" people being gay all I'm saying is yes there are bad Christians out there who burn books and blah blah but they're are good ones too sorry for the long post thank you for your time
@child lover, do you mind shutting the f*ck up. Just please. You are ignorant and rather annoying. Please be considerate next time you voice your opinion.
@LostLogic, I find your post hypocritical and rude. Make sure you actually think about what you're saying before you say it. Like you said, be considerate next time you post your opinion.
@foreal, this is the thing though, you are saying he is hypocritical and a bigot, and yet that is exactly what you yourself are (or is, im failing english) doing
@LostLogic, he was being considerate. That was the point of the rant. Don't be so quick to judge others and you won't be judged in return.
@LostLogic, That was a d1ck move. Pun not intended.
Rant time I am a Christian (yes I have made jokes in the past and also the name don't seem that way, I'm a Christian not perfect) I'm not here to preach but in today's world it seems as though the minority of people are getting what they want now hear me out I live in North Carolina where recently (some months ago) we actually voted on gay marriage and the vote that one was to not have it but the court over ruled it (so why did we even vote idk) and every teenager went into into a political rage about how that's fair and that gays should be able to marry and one girl even said "why express your opinion if someone's happy" all I'm saying is in this world now we are told we have to accept others or were bigots or homophobes there is a huge difference between tolerance and accaptence. Now as I said I am a Christian but yoh won't see me having some rally about how "God hates f@gs" cause it's not true I tolerate everyone it's not my place to judge do I accept their beliefs? No but I won't
@child lover, Just wanna say, tolerance vs acceptance totally cool way to live. But, the overturning of the anti-gay marriage vote was doing just that. Forcing toleration. If you deny people civil rights and property transfer, etc just because of the word marriage, you'd be mighty intolerant. The allowance of gays being married under the LAW has nothing to do with acceptance/participation on your part or that of other religious majorities.
As an agnostic, I see more atheist nuts than theist nuts these days. I also get more sh*t from atheists
@Doctor Krieger, I'm sorry that you do. Some people REQUIRE religion to keep them in check. The smart, or at least practical people, like you and I, are able to life properly without religion.
@LostLogic, I don't feel that using religion as a means to establish morals, infrastructure, and culture is a bad thing. In fact, many people turn out to be, in my eyes, more morally and ethically responsible because of their religion. Sure, agnostics can achieve the same without religion, but my point is that we are no better because of it. We still need means to establish all that I have mentioned, it just happens that said means are not based on religious ideology. I, personally, am an agnostic because I believe that one cannot possibly know what both science and religion attempt to explain, the truth behind all of existence, and therefor see it as pointless to spend my life worrying about it.
@Doctor Krieger, fantastic and most educated response I have seen on this picture. Thank you for your feedback :)
Same can be said about atheism, but no one does for some reason
@ archiethesailor, it's not a matter of ideology, it's a matter of human action. If one tries to impose their own thoughts onto another, then they are wrong. It doesn't matter if it's religion or lack there of, so you can't say that without taking a grain of salt with it, people get backlash for pushing atheism all the time.
@Cabbage Salesman, But trying to get another person to learn fact from fiction isn't wrong, it's simply how people are taught.
@ archiethesailor, one person's fiction can be another person's fact. It's all a personal preference.
@ archiethesailor, people keep saying this but I'm an atheist with multiple religious (or "believes in a higher power other than god") friends or family and I don't throw it in anyone's face. I may disagree with your views but you still have the right to have those views. I haven't met another atheist that acts like how you describe either.
@The Puppet Man, You've never been on YouTube then
@Cabbage Salesman, then I wonder why the theory of evolution is taught as fact instead of it being a theory like it's named
@basrrf, I just don't look at videos related to religion or any "hot topics" for that matter. And I definitely don't care about the comments. I only go on YouTube to watch videos, not to discuss them. Yes there are idiotic atheists and ik they exist but there are idiotic members of every group. I've even been told I'm going to hell for being an atheist. But my personal view is *if* there's a higher power you meet after death, I'm fully ready to apologize to him/her/it and admit I was wrong. But there's plenty of people out there that I guarantee wouldn't if they're proven wrong.
@Cabbage Salesman, it's interesting to me that you say that, considering a good majority of the lgbt community is trying to make it practically illegal to not support them, and if all you did was say you didn't support the lgbt movement then they'd label you an ignorant bigot. Also, its human nature to try to get other people to see things the way you see. That's the basis of any argument
@morningperson, you can teach what is deemed scientific fact, but it is up to individuals to decide what they believe.
@ archiethesailor, yes, but in matters of religion there is no right answer. Therefore I can't rightly argue for the legitimacy or one religion without pushing my opinions on others
I like turtles
@Cabbage Salesman, There's a right answer to everything, including religion. It's not a matter of opinion.
@DarkSock, I like tortoises. We must argue.
@ archiethesailor, you can not prove there is a god just as you can not disprove it. Everyone has different ideas on the matter and frankly I'm agnostic, but that doesn't mean you can not believe in a prospect that has not been disproved
So i just got on FunnyPics, ready to have a good time, but all I see in the comments is a religious debate. We are better than this. It's not 2013 anymore, no one cares about your religious or sexual preference. So let's all drop this subject while we still love each other.
@gmastern1996, too late, the flame war is upon is my friend. Now all we can do is watch as the flames engulf all we can see (I.e. the comment section)
@AFRICANxBATMAN, but who says human nature is solely good? It's human nature to envelop the deadly sins, but that doesn't mean we accept it with open arms. Furthermore that is societal pressure, not personal, not really what we're talking about. Bottom line is you shouldn't push religion/atheism. Simple as that
@The Puppet Man, turtles ARE tortoises, DUH
@Cabbage Salesman, I would disagree. There a lot of atheists like that in this wave of "New Atheism."
@DarkSock, nope that's impossible
@The Puppet Man, U WOT, M8!?! U HAVIN' A GIGGLE THEN? I SWEAR ON ME MUM...
@DarkSock, I'LL BASH YE FOKKIN 'ED IN YA WANKA
@iOS8, yet a fact is something proven. Religion isn't proven yet science is. Fact: science, Fiction: religion. Learn fact from fiction, please.
@morningperson, I hope you realize your life is going to be difficult. I hope you have fun getting a carrier, learning in school and in general get an education. The fact that you think evolution isn't real is saddening and I can only take pitty on you. Good luck in life to you.
@ archiethesailor, Thank you for being one of the few educated people left on this earth. People need to learn fact from fiction(religion) so we can become a more superior race throughout. Just think about all the good things that could have happened and how advanced we would be if there was never religion in the first place.
@LostLogic, observable science is fact. Historical science is not fact. It is theoretical and proven wrong almost daily by other scientists who think they have a better theory on how things happened. Until they can actually go back in time and have visual proof on how it actually happened, it will remain as a theory. And nothing more. And yes I do know that "scientific theory" is taken as "fact" in the scientific community. But, again, scientific theories on history before humans started recording it are proven wrong almost daily. So. I don't put as much faith in them as you would. Sorry for the long post but I'm tired of people telling me that the thing I believe in that had never been seen by human eyes is wrong and the thing they believe in that has never been seen by human eyes is right.
@iOS8, I suppose historical evolution can't be proven yet, but what about micro-evolutions that are seen easily in bacteria, viruses, Galapagos Islands, etc? Those all lend a lot of credence to the currently sound Theory of Evolution. Yet I have't heard or seen a thing giving current credence to a higher being. No new prophets, no destruction of cities with bugles, no miracles or omnipotent voices...
@TheCruzanator, you can witness evolution in today's world. So yeah I can see how we evolved. But, from what is the question.
@iOS8, actually, we do know what we evolved from. And I appreciate you understanding that some species HAVE evolved recently to better survive in some conditions. Evolution is real and it is happening. If you want to know what we have EXACTLY evolved from watch some videos or read some scientific thesis. I am not sure the exact makings of our prior evolutionary states but you can check up on that if you do so wish.
@Cabbage Salesman, how is it scientific fact when it is scientifically impossible by our own standard... I believe it's 1 in 10^20 is scientifically considered impossible but for a cell to form by complete chance is about 1/10^4,000,000 last I checked not exactly sure the number
@LostLogic, I'm not saying it's not real I'm just saying it hasn't been proven so it still should be taught as a theory... But since no one has a time machine well we are kinda at a stand still
To the 15+ people who dislike this, you are a disappointment, and homosexuality shouldn't be a problem it's freaking 2015. Separation of church and state also.
@Tallest man in world, Not fond of picking fights on the internet, however... The words "desperation of church and state" are not explicitly in the constitution, or logically inferred therefrom. It's a blatant misinterpretation that has been used to make ridiculous cases against the Church.
Yeah. It's 2015, so let's take advantage of our superior education and applicable resources to invest in and better understand the issues that face us, rather than making 2015 the era of do what makes you happy regardless of thought and implication.
I imagine, since this opinion isn't the current most-popular funny pics opinion I'll be downvoted by everyone who sees this, but I post it regardless. We're a pretty bloody thoughtless society for being one with so much self-proclaimed intelligence.
@Arbitrage L, yours is the first post I've read on this thread which I actually agree with wholeheartedly. Thank you for giving me a bit of hope.
@Sir Proper, Thank you for saying this. It was very much an encouragement.
@Arbitrage L, please sir, do tell me how a man marrying another man is going to affect our society? I believe that if a man and a women can marry, than by humanity so can two humans of the same gender.
actually an epic response
*apply water to burn*
@Your Brain, would that be...holy water?
Double standard! *gets popcorn ready for debate*
Good old Maggie smith. :)
I didnt like at all that comparison -.-
Or as one comedian said, "Tries to cram it down my children's throat"
