How about I punch you in the face over religious argument before dissolving into rather humorous conversation.

Got any ************ gifs? I don't. I don't have any reaction pics. Hence why I'm stealing that one.

I don't understand the reason for posts like these. They just mock religion without even being funny or anything. Can't people just get along? Hating religions doesn't make you seem more intelligent... Just saying...

I am so sick of these bloody religious debates (yes I am mad). They are stupid and prove nothing. Misquoting, taking things out of context and not understanding make your point and yourself look stupid. If you actually want to learn about a religion then try asking someone in a polite manner instead of ripping on it. It's stupid and immature

A lot of people actually know enough about religion to make jokes about it, and none of these quotes are taken out of context. I've been raised in a religious family and didn't shake it off myself until I was twelve (a horrific ordeal, arguments with parents, crying myself to sleep because of my fear of hell) - I also went to a religious high school, so I have a GCSE in religious studies.

Having been through all that, I think religion is something that deserves ripping into - not because of my personal experience, but because the concept is actually so laughable it hurts. I believe in something, no proof of it, but it makes me feel good and makes me do good things so it's OK.

The Old Testament is disgusting and an easy target but most Theists write that off as 'Jesus re-wrote the covenant between God and his people'; I don't think really think anyone realises that the idea Jesus died for our sins is absolutely ridiculous. What kind of omni-potent, drama queen of a God does that?

Actually, I'm taking up heavy scientific studies of the original scriptures of Bhuddism, Islam and Christianity (jews are really reserved about letting non-jews peek into their books, so I can't get information from them)

Most religions are based upon the needs of their time, and as I notice with Islam compared to Christianity, the younger religions moved to counter mistakes of their predecessors (considering Jahwe, God, and Allah are technically the same person, only supported by different sub-factions).

When you read carefully, the issue is that everything is theoretical. Just like Marxism.
The intention behind it is good, but the moment you try to put it into practice, people will use it for their own benefits, leading to their downfall.

In other words, religions aint so bad, but you can't leave them in human hands because they'll often (not always) will ruin it.

And that's why we can't have nice things.
(because just read any books related to the pure facts of religion, you'll find that if you obey the rules they set (and if you find rules that aren't made for helping you, you misunderstand their intention), it isn't really a bad thing. The Ten Commandments are a good thing. The Sharî'a (which is the entire set of rules spread in the Qur'an, not just the things the media talks about) combined with Idjtihâd (which means the ability to think about things logically and apply the Sharî'a to real life, without using it literally) leads to similar things, only more detailed than the Commandments.

In the end, religion is technically a good thing. It's like that big ass manual. The rules are okay, but who is going to stick through the entire thing without saying 'I got this' and try it on his own?

hurrrr religion dumb, so edgy XD. why the **** do you have such a problem with it? a lot of people, good people, get their moral beliefs through religion. a lot of people seek comfort in times of hardship from religion. who are you to mock that?

And if they didn't have religion would they be drinking themselves to oblivion? No. They'd find some other form of comfort. It's a moot point.

Also, the ****** with all the Atheism posts today? Did I miss something?

"They'd find some other form of comfort."

That doesn't exactly justify removing it though. If they're got something that does one job, we shouldn't propose getting rid of it because he'll just improvise another one. We should keep that original something because it's already serving the purpose. You don't fix what's not broken. The path of least resistence and all that crap.

You do if people are using it as an excuse for something horrible though.
If we remove religion and people turn to chess club instead, what will the chess club have to say on not using condoms in Africa? Nothing, that's what.

Then we focus on those using it for violence and hatred, and preserve those who are being decent with it. As far as "the path of least resistance", it still holds. How would you intend to get rid of religion exactly? Outlaw it? That worked well for alcohol, drugs, and weed...

Hell, I'd never ACTUALLY outlaw religion. Aside from the whole caring about other human beings thing, imagine the damage to the country. People would not take it well and some of them would take to violence over it.

Yup. There's a slight necessity to it. While it'd be a colossal pain in the ass to get rid of it, and it sucks that it provides motivation for such retardedness, we can at least be thankful it has SOME beneficial purpose.

The problem does not lie with religion or Non belief, the only constant is humanity in general - The rest is all variables

Everyone who is complaining about how this is funnyjunk, and this isn't funny, needs to shut up. I don't see you complaining about want, fact, or comps of TV shows and video games.

At least out of all the people I know personally, the proportion of atheists who are condescending and insist on arguing with people who have different beliefs is higher than the proportion of religious people who do that.

Does anyone else share this experience?

I'm ok with atheists who don't believe in God, I'm not ok with Anti-theists who are violently opposed to religion and God. I dislike extremists of both sides, just live and let live guys.

I meant violent as a synonym for a negative passion, not physically violent, but I see what you mean
