The Bible is to Christians as the Terms and Conditions are to everyone. Most people just skip to the end and say, "I accept"

I have won so many arguments with christian idiots (distinct and seperate from regular christians) simply by justifying my argument with a random name and two numbers; 'its in the bible; James 13:29'. They either accept it or go away to look it up, by which time the arguments been over for so long nobody really cares anymore.

On the other hand, I'm sure many atheists haven't read the scientific papers supporting theories like the Big Bang and evolution. I'm not saying that those theories are wrong, but you can't read everything. At some point, you do have to take things on faith. Creationists choose to accept that their text is true, and people who believe in the Big Bang choose to accept that the scientists who wrote those papers knew what they were doing.

Atheism has nothing to do with those theories though, many will use them verify their "beliefs" but it isn't a necessity to be an atheist. Atheism is a rejection of religion.

You're right. I was using atheism as a sort of shorthand for people who believe in scientific theories while disbelieving in the supernatural. That's not totally correct, but I think the general point is still understood.

I used to go to Christian private school, and we were required to study the Bible. I doubted my beliefs, and started studying a ton....I've read it about 13 times since my freshman year. There's some crazy **** in there son.

This is one of the problems I've had with Christianity. I mean, I was born in a more or less religious village, and went to Sunday school and other religious gatherings, so we're more or less born Christians(I'm acnostic-atheist of some kind, but I was Christian when I was younger), and being an atheist is unheard off.
A girl moved in to town, and a rumour started to flood that she was an atheist, so some of the kids of the "higher ups" in the Christian community, started to ask her question regarding the bible, like if she wasn't afraid of going to hell etc.

The funny part of this was, was that she had read infinitely more about the bible, and she knew what it was that she believed, or what it was that she didn't believe in, which was more than these kids had been spoonfed their entire lives through someone reading up some passages from the bible for them.
The problem I mentioned at top is, how can you call yourself a Christian if you haven't read the bible, the books that documents the man you hold your faith in? Is it okey to just to believe in what other tell you about Jesus Christ? Aren't you then more faithful to that person, than you are to Jesus?

I know this might offend someone, but it wasn't my intention.

To be fair, most read some of it, get spoon-fed the rest, and pick-and-choose what they want to believe. Terms and conditions you really just scroll to the bottom and accept.   
   
I'm a Christian and tried reading all the way through, and now I know why many churches give a prize for finishing the whole thing within a year. Still, your simile is true enough to be saddening.   
   
Gif is my reaction to other Christians not even trying to read the book they're basing they're life off of and supposedly using for reference.

I agree with you but I've read alot of the Bible and I take all the scriptures and put them into logic. I believe in a creator but I also believe in the building blocks of life, evolution and a bit of the big bang theory. I won't make fun of anyone's religion like atheists nor will I ridicule another for believing in something I don't It makes life more enjoyable and whimsical when you believe in angels and demons and things!

I don't know where that quote came from, especially since that ************ deleted his comment, but it really pisses me off when Christians try to justify the stupid mythical **** that's in the Bible by saying it's all metaphors. How the **** do THEY know it's a metaphor? Also, everything but Jesus' resurrection is a ******* metaphor? What if the actual resurrection is a metaphor too?

Anyway, on an unrelated note, I wanted to share a story about the stupidity of the people who preach this religion. I have a friend who studies to be a minister (you actually need a degree for that, Eastern Orthodox ****) and was once talking about this bracelet he had that had a cross on it, and said that everyone (me and the other friends who were sitting around) should get one, but they shouldn't wear it on the hand they masturbate with. I immediately laughed and asked him if he got that from the Bible, and he said that "that's just the way it is". Aside from that, if you call yourself Christian and masturbate you're nothing but a ******* hypocrite. You're "lusting" about women, knowing that according to your book that's wrong, and yet you still do it.
I have many other reasons why I hate when ************* on here say "I'm a Christian and I believe that everyone should be able to marry whoever they want." and that type of ****, and then get a ******** of thumbs. Of course, I support all human rights, but I don't give a **** about any stupid Christian's (and I'm sorry, but if you're religious, while familiar with all of today's scientific research and breakthroughs, you should re-evaluate your beliefs) opinion.
Rant over. Why the **** did I even write all this **** as a reply.

And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. Are you talking about this? Always use the King James version.

Here is why. Even alot of Christians do not know why. So, the KJV version was translated by the smartest people in that day and age. Especially in that day. Where people were very smart using langauge. Taken from wikipedia which is slightly unreliable, "The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom were members of the Church of England.[10] In common with most other translations of the period, the New Testament was translated from Greek, the Old Testament was translated from Hebrew text, while the Apocrypha were translated from the Greek and Latin." Pretty much 47 people translated it and they were all highly respected scholars.

Huh. Guess it just goes to show you that you can't make sweeping statements like that. If someone picks and chooses what to obey in the Bible, that's their mistake. But you can hardly act superior when you don't comprehend the verses as they're meant to be.
Most times that I've heard an atheist quote the Bible, it's to appear more intelligent than believers, even though they've taken it out of context.

thing is though; if an athiest misquotes the Bible its like misquoting Harry Potter or an x-man comic, because to us its fiction. Christians are supposedly basing their lives on what the Bible says, so they cant afford to misquote.

I'm not trying to sound superior, I just think that if you're going to base your life and beliefs on a book you should at least get it right, and I know some christians do but too many dont.

meaning I guess that if someone doesnt know what a quote means they cant use it? You know that so much of the bible is metaphorical the meaning behind it could be interpretted dozens of ways, meaning anyone could use a quote as long as they were sure of what it meant even if it was different from someone elses translation? Skipping over how you gave me one line of the bible with no context meaning I had to come up with my own interpretation of what you were tring to say with this proverb.

I'd rather just mock these people anyway. They're pitifully easy to troll.

The fedora meme has become so bloated and out of control. It's everybody's go-to insult-argument for everybody that disagrees with them now.

Glad to see I'm not the only person.

I think the neck-beard label should be reserved for those who claim superiority over those who have faith, not anyone who DARE be non religious or have the AUDACITY to make a joke about it.
