My how spicy, I expect the ratio of upvotes to be 10:1
@OfficialNyarlathotep, well would you look at that
I know this is supposed to be funny but jeeze, there are parents out there actually dealing with this kind of thing
all the more reason to eject him into deep space
@ToddHowardsParents, do it without a suit. He'll be in space and not have to worry about cancer anymore. Two birds one stone
What a loving God
*kid who could cure cancer *gets aborted
@tmo0792, *kid who cpuld commit genocide* *gets aborted*
@OddDungeonMaster, so committing mass genocide of the unborn to prevent them from maybe never ever doing it? Yeah makes a lot of sense...
@tmo0792, the joke
@Ultimatum, I dont take blasphemy and making fun of God to lightly
@tmo0792, one would think that an omnipotent being has thick enough skin that he doesn’t need people like you to jump to his defense on the internet.
But what do I know?
@Ultimatum, yeah my brother can handle himself but if someone attacks him I'm not gonna just stand there and watch. What kind of asinine argument are you trying to make?
@tmo0792, where did you even see blasphemy?
@tmo0792, blasphemy? Mate there was no such thing. You're trying to drag this down to religion cause you can't argue this otherwise
@tmo0792, yall debating about religion and abortion and overpopulation and CO admissions are gonna kill us anyway
@Dick Gravatar, blasphemy - the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk.... this most definitely was blasphemous.
@tmo0792, it's a joke, would you jump to the throat of anyone who joked about your brother?
@tmo0792, not belittling your beliefs at all, I actually applaud you for them, but a meme site is probably not the best place to visit if you don’t want to see the occasional blaspheming remark made in jest. It would be like going out for a drink at a bar and feeling the need to tell everyone that they shouldn’t be acting in a sexual or gluttonous way
@Mkb617, it would be like going to a bar then getting mad when everyone is drinking.
@tmo0792, it was with this comment thread that I realize I hand out more downvotes than upvotes. And now I feel bad.
But not for you.
@tmo0792, You must be real fun at parties. We’re all here to escape people like you in the real world, you know that right?
@tmo0792, do you know how many still births occur everyday? According to the NIH 1 out of every 160 pregnancies in the US. Your God, if it did exist, logically would be responsible for everyone of them. Making him king of the abortionists. 26k per year. And it doesn't just stop for God at birth. His capricious and malicious killing of the innocent extends well past it. Babies with cancer, blue baby syndrome, sudden infant death syndrome and preterm birth to name a few methods.
I personally find it hilarious when someone thanks God for curing their cancer/disease or giving them the strength to fight it because in my head I'm thinking "who do you think gave it to you in the first place?" Like an abused spouse they say "he [beats] us 'cause he loves us." For me I have no reason to think that God exists. But if it did it's deserving of ridicule and judgment, not praise or worship. If taking things to their logical conclusions is blasphemy your should try it sometime. It's fun.
@tmo0792, god* no capitalization
@NotCaveJohnson, see, his response to this would probably just be "it's all part of God's plan" or something along those lines...
@NotCaveJohnson, see you dont get the Bible, God, scripture, or theology at all. God is an all powerful, perfect, and holy being. He is the ultimate judge. So why not trust him to make the call on life. You nor is anyone else perfect or anywhere close to it. So when we take the role of God into our own hands that's the problem. Then again it's almost pointless to try to talk to you about these things 1. You have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to scripture 2. You wont sit down and take the time to have such a theological discussion with someone who does to try to understand it. Go ahead and believe the nonsense of the big bang theory and all the other stuff that has no substantial evidence for it when the The Bible does. Historical evidence of the old scriptures, Jesus being a real person. Instead you choose to believe in things like the ever faulty carbon dating and things like that. I know what's real and I hope and pray that you will see the truth yourself one day.
@tmo0792, I'm always down to have the discussion when you're ready
@lemongrenade, it's a proper noun. Like any character in fiction a capital G is still appropriate.
@tmo0792, then delete the app
@tmo0792, you commented to yourself
@tmo0792, you just said science has no evidence and religion does. Btw the scientific community overwhelmingly agrees that jesus was real. The doubt comes at whether or not he was in fact a demi god.
@tmo0792, what proof does religion offer?
@tmo0792, I made no mention of big bang or carbon dating. I've triggered a reflex, it seems. I take it you're been listening to Kent Hovind or John Pendleton?
I have no allegiances to any conclusions. I've read the Bible. It reads like mythology up until exodus. Then the perspective is from a band of tribal superstitious hebrew slaves documenting their military victories. I have no reason to take their claims of God's actions as accurate representations. If left alone for two weeks, by their own admission, they would start praying to a golden cow. They're not the smartest group of people. Yet they are the foundation for multiple religions and sects. No one has reason to trust the claims in the Bible any more than The Odyssey or The Iliad. Each separate claim must be substantiated independently.
Jesus MAY be a real person(s) but divinity is the important question with larger implications.
@NotCaveJohnson, I already knew what you believed. You triggered nothing. I already knew I would be bashed because everyone's opinion is okay including killing babies unless you are a Christian. I'm used to it. It only fulfills the prophecy of the Bible.
@tmo0792, I’m sorry, but I’m very tired of devoutly religious people pretending to be “open” to conversation about said religion when, in reality, that discussion boils down to “nah, my god is great and you’re an idiot, end of story.” If you’re going to throw the word “discussion” around, try not to appear so blatantly dogmatic. There’s just as much of a chance that god is real as there is a chance that god does not exist, and for people like you, that particular fact just absolutely annihilates your world view and comfort with the fragility of life, so you shove dogmatic beliefs down people’s throats as if that will save you from the existential dread we all fear. Respect other people, respect other views. While I applaud you for having faith in your religion, I most certainly condemn your condescending attitude and ill-representation of your god and his benevolence.Goodbye, sir, and may your god be kind enough to show you the tragic extent of your blessed ignorance some day.
@tmo0792, I swear you get dumber and dumber with each passing week my friend. The real truth is that you dont even truly believe in the b.s your spouting and that in the end your not even a Christian. Thats right. Ive figured it out. Your just a loudmouth hypocrite who doesnt even believe in what he preaches. Your a bigt fat phony my dude. And for that you have my sympathies. For instead of trying to be true to yourself and others, you put on this fake holy facade when in reality you dont actually believe in anything. Not with any real conviction anyway.
O dont get me wrong. You fake it very well. But ive been around for a bit and can now spot a faker from a mile away. And you sir. Are probably the biggest faker ive ever had the displeasure of encountering. My advice? Stop spouting lies and b.s that you yourself dont even believe in.
@tmo0792, I was reading through this thread and at first I was like wow this guys an idiot. And then after your massive comment I realised you’re actually just trolling us all. Well done sir, you’ve successfully genuinely pissed off everyone on this app. It takes a well practiced and dedicated troll to continue trolling through the onslaught of downvotes. Thumbs up to you sir
@LaDarkProphet, name one hypocritical thing I've done on here? I've said countless times that noone is perfect myself included and again everyone is aloud opinions on here except for Christians it's the truth.
@tmo0792, Say the guy who started this whole mess to begin with. Look at that. Not even. Three sentences and ive alreayd pointed out your hypocrisy.
Congrats ya done played yerself. Again. Not that your a Christian to begin with. Cause your not. So thats yet another lie to add to your repertoire
@LaDarkProphet, what are you even saying lol I dont think you know what that word even means. I've never once been hypocritical on here and always stuck my beliefs.
@tmo0792, Yet more lies. Why are you always lying? Are you a compulsive liar? I think you are. I dont think you even know what a Christian is, yet alone how to act like one. Yes sir, you are a fraud. A phony. A hypocrite. A liar. A charlatan. You are the epitome of saying one thing and meaning another. I truly believe that you are so used to lying not only to other but also to yourself that you cant discern the truth anymore.
Thats how sad you are. Its why you have my upmost pity. Your so confused by your own pies that your quite literally hanging yourself. It would be funny if it wasnt so sad.
Stop lying. Admit the truth. Your not a Christian. Hell. Your not even Religious. Those are concepts that are foreign to you. Your beliefs change as often as the wind. Truly pathetic really.
@LaDarkProphet, I'm still waiting in you to show me once where you believe all this? Again you haven't. So I'll keep waiting.
@Indian style, nah I like my comparison better. At a bar you can drink without “sinning” just like you can come to a meme site without seeing “blasphemous” jokes
@tmo0792, Eh, to be this ignorant of valid points made against you and cherry picking stuff that may or may not be proven is just evidence you are either a troll or not open for a real discussion. Also, from a devout Christian like you I'd expect from you not to be a judge to others, since that is highly prohibited in your religion but hey, that part is obviously not getting into your head
@Draco9990, I never judged anyone???! I said abortion is a sin. Also as a Christian we are called to judge righteously. Meaning discern what is good and bad i dont look down on others. Just because something is wrong doesn't mean I'm bashing anyone. I even stated noone is perfect myself included. I make mistakes just like everyone else. That doesnt make it okay though
@tmo0792, It's simple. You accused others of blasphemy, you *judged* them without knowing them. And your religion absolutely *does not* call for "righteous judgement" because all judgement is seen as a sin. By your religion, only the God may judge, and judging others is seen as taking his place, which, as you should know, is highly forbidden.
@Draco9990, actually it never ever ever says do not judge. Please show me in the Bible where it says that. It says do not judge unless you want to be judged. The whole emphasis of that chapter is to discern good from evil. I didnt call them blasphemous I said the post was blasphemous. I already know what you're going to say. You're going to say what about "he who is without sin cast the first stone" the pharisees were wicked people who were committing the same acts that the woman who committed adultry had been caught in. Thus they had know right to judge her. I have no right to judge a particular person as in "you are a bad person" however there is nothing wrong with saying hey this is wrong and we shouldnt do it. "But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil." Hebrews 5:14 this chapter speaks of how as we mature we should be able to discern evil from good.
@Draco9990, Dont bother with this one mate. He is so delusional as to be incomprehensible and unreasonable. He is so dead set into his dogmatic, ritualistic thinking that he cant even see the truth anymore. He is beyond help or redemption. He is just another mindless zealot to stupid to see the truth.
@tmo0792, Still spouting the same b.s lies? Do you even read before you hit send mate? I dont think you do. I think you just smash the keys and hit send. It explains how inconsistent you are in your posts and would explain why its so easy to show that not only do you have no idea what your talking about but that you aslo dont even truly believe in the words your typing. And is that not the biggest blasphemy of them all? You lying, degenerative, hateful, bigoted, spiteful, blaspheming scudbucket. Its funny that other real Christians can spot you immediately as pretentious fake snob who has no ides what Christians actually believe. I doubt you have even touched a bible let alone read one. You are laughable.
@tmo0792, First of all, way to cast a straw man. You truly did defeat arguments that I never created. Now for my fun part.
There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbor?
This is a quote from the Bible. It specifically says you have no right to judge anyone. I have provided proof for my claims. Your options are either to back down, accepting you are mistaken, or refute my argument, lashing out against your own religion *and God himself* in the process. Frankly, I don't care which it is. I have made my point.
@Draco9990, First of all he is referring to Christians talking about other Christians so you're cherry picking verses. 2. Again I said judging the person is wrong but DISCERNING THE EVIL FROM GOOD IS COMPLETELY OKAY. I literally just said that. If I see something is not right I'm okay to say that's a sin and its wrong. I'm not saying hey you're not living your life like you ought to so your garbage. Your point proves my own
@tmo0792, Ah so that's how it's gonna be. You are gonna try to take a nonexistent moral ground just so you can keep pushing your agenda when your book doesn't go in your favour. That's always how it goes, almost as if your book is full of shjt and even the most hardcore of you realise that. That verse says nothing about religion, but the whole chapter speaks of sins in general.
Do me a favour. Either stick to your book, where you will be defeated by arguments since the book itself holds way too shjtty moral grounds, OR stop pretending you're a good Christian. Can't be both, mate.
@tmo0792, I feel your pain dude.
@tmo0792, this meme’s purpose wasn’t blasphemy. I am a Christian myself. It’s just funny, even if it is kind of dark humor.
@Draco9990, holy heck i just came back to this thread. Holy heck. Did no know the tmo guy was gunna go Westboro Baptist church on us.
@OddDungeonMaster, yeah it's always like that with christians, when you point out that they are going against their book they are like "oooh but it isn't meant like that, it is for *extremely specific case* only". Complete and utter bullshjt like that is why I have done a wide 180 from being a Christian myself.
@Draco9990, I prefer supernaturals take on biblical mythology, way more badass!
@Draco9990, i have lots of problems with the way tmo0792 has talked and conducted himself in this thread but I have to disagree with you that saying someone committed blasphemy is the same as judging them. If I said that you walked across the street without looking that is not judging you for what you did, as long as what I claim is actually the truth. Saying something is a sin is not judging the person it is making a statement about the act.
@Mkb617, I disagree. Even though it is debatable whether or not it is applicable in this case, stating a fact can be an insult as well, in our society. Calling a person a whore because he/she slept with 200 other people is a fact, but also an insult. That aside, I'm pretty sure tmo's behaviour is waaaay out of line for a Christian in general, not that case specifically
@Draco9990, I wasn’t arguing that he was out of line or not and you are right intent of what is being said does matter, it doesn’t change the fact of what I said. If I called someone a whore because I didn’t like them or because I was mad at them yes that would be an insult. If I said that a person who had sex for money was a whore that is stating a fact.
@Mkb617, No, no, I agree, you weren't saying he wasn't acting poorly.
And yeah, he is entitled to his opinion, but imma call that bullshjt out when I see hypocrisy in action. The great thing is that if you have only your standards that you follow and not your standards + standards from one book, you won't be forced to comply with something you don't want to. That's my two cents tho :)
Sorry kiddo, it’s all part of a “bigger plan”
God I love this meme format
