It's okay to be Atheist.
It's okay to be Religious.
You know what's not okay?
Being a dick about it.

I guess that means I'm automatically inferior to you.
User avatar #144 to #124 - ningyoaijin (03/10/2013) [-]
Well, statistically...
User avatar #147 to #124 - smittywrbmnjnsn (03/10/2013) [-]
Perhaps, perhaps not.

Often times, when someone believes everything they're told, or refuses to see evidence as such...they are intellectually inferior.

That's about as stupid as me blaming my white friend for my ancestors being enslaved.

you say that but some black americans have tracked down the family that enslaved their ancestors and demanded compensation. not saying you dont have a point, just saying it happens.
#151 to #148 - choclategum (03/10/2013) [-]
Ok...
Ok...
#168 to #148 - vparrish (03/10/2013) [-]
And then most white people just look at them like they're stupid.
#169 to #132 - John Cena (03/10/2013) [-]
Just another thing. White people have been enslaved just as long as blacks. White people have been slaves too! Not just blacks. Just throwing this out there cause as you know, some people feel entitled to throw the "My people where slaves".. Well... So was native americans and whities.
#173 to #169 - choclategum (03/10/2013) [-]
Ok...again.
Ok...again.

User avatar #8 to #7 - shaddz (03/10/2013) [-]
thats a past time not a religious value what are you talking about
#23 - John Cena (03/10/2013) [-]
What about male genital mutilation you sexist ****** ?
#18 - teamrocketninja (03/10/2013) [-]
Its just provocative and snarky, not funny in the slightest.
#44 - roliga (03/10/2013) [-]
This is like when black people complain about how white people enslaved their ancestors. Yeah those people did, not the current white people. And the current religious people aren't doing any of this either, so shut the **** up and get over it.

Excuse me, but that is not true. A lot of people are killed every day due to religious issues
#134 to #130 - John Cena (03/10/2013) [-]
Stalin was an Atheist and commited genocide worse than the Holocaust.
#141 to #134 - jinkazama (03/10/2013) [-]
Yeah, but religion had nothing to do with that. Did religion have anything to do with the crusades or spanish inquisition? YES.

Nobody is saying religion causes every problem you ******** .
#156 to #141 - John Cena (03/10/2013) [-]
Actually, people very much are. It's all "HURR DURR MODERN RELIGISS PEEPL AER STOUPID AM I RITE GUYZ DEY CAUZE EVERY PR0BLEMZ."

Also, no need to get hostile. I was just having a conversation with the fellow before me.
#160 to #156 - jinkazama (03/10/2013) [-]
Dude said that people are killed each day because of religious issues. That is not an attack on religion. That is fact. If you can't accept it then you are a ******* dickhole.

Also. Atheism isn't a belief. You can't blame it for something. Blaming atheism for stalins murders is retarded. Atheism is the lack of belief. Not a belief in itself. It doesn't affect life choices.
#179 to #160 - John Cena (03/10/2013) [-]
I do agree that Religion does cause major genocide, but saying that being an Atheist excuses you of all consequences is, in my opinion, stupid.

Now, just so I can understand you correctly, you say that Atheism can't be blamed because of Stalin, but Muslims can be blamed for Al-Qaeda? (I am not saying they are good, they are the Polar opposite)

Just checking. I'm a Christian, and plenty of my Friends are Atheists, and I have no problem with that.

I dub these people, religious *******

Middle-eastern Islam, parhaps?
User avatar #104 to #44 - cadencee (03/10/2013) [-]
The point behind it was that religion was and still is used as a tool to control and bully a population. The only reason it doesn't happen anymore is because society has evolved to a point where it would not be acceptable.

Here's a question for you.

Try to think of 3 abhorrent things that could or has only happen(ed) due to the existence and practice of religion (If you need help I can make a list for you). Now try to think of one that example that could only be committed by an atheist.

Censoring, brainwashing, homophobia and rejection of science are still happening in the most developed of countries.
#48 to #44 - dismemberment (03/10/2013) [-]
they are still very homophobic and they still brainwash kids. trust me ive been to a "jesus camp" and **** they do to you there is beyond insane
User avatar #97 to #48 - mistercookie ONLINE (03/10/2013) [-]
It depends, every single one of the religious people have nothing against homosexuals. I've been to a christian summer camp from when i was 8 til 14 and all they taught us was to love everyone equally no matter gender/race/sexual preference etc...

Since i know many christians around Europe i can say that the majority of them are not homophobic. Although from all i hear on news and what i read on the internet it seems the American christians are stupid backwater people who hasn't been updated about how the world works the last 200 - 300 years.
User avatar #136 - neutrality (03/10/2013) [-]
As an Atheist, you cannot blame all of current religion for the mistakes of a few in the past, otherwise we Atheists by that logic are all like Stalin.
#166 to #136 - vparrish (03/10/2013) [-]
Exactly. I can think of just as many atrocious acts committed by atheist as I can by religious people.

The difference is being a dick in the past when everyone was a dick and being a dick in the present when we are trying to promote universal harmony. **** you Treder

Sorry about all those 'anti-atheism" posts.

Oh wait.
User avatar #120 - sirbutterballs (03/10/2013) [-]
Ok since the comments are basically the same shpeel I'll try to be quick about it. religion isn't what cause these things, it's people. Just like how people are the one's using guns to kill, politicians used religion to fit their own ideals. The bible tries to teach you how to be a good person, not how to hate. When a group of people attacks another because of religion it's not actually for religion, it's just the human trait of racism. And when or if their is a heaven then it would be filled with kind and generous people regardless if they're Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Atheist, Buddhist, Hindu, or anything. Hell you could worship Cthulu and get into heaven. Don't know why OP hates religion just because of the act's of the Cuntish.
User avatar #170 to #120 - beerterror (03/10/2013) [-]
Worshiping Cthulhu involves acts of homicide and violence for its own sake
#102 - jeremiahtamplin (03/10/2013) [-]
You forgot Male genital mutilation. ****** jews
#98 - angelusprimus (03/10/2013) [-]
I really don't care if you are atheist, christian, muslim, hindu or folower of Unorthodox Potato Church, I really don't give a damn.
But if you go around saying how you and only you are right, and everyone else is stupid for disagreeing, you are a dick, and need to get a dose of shut the **** up.
#85 - beerterror (03/10/2013) [-]
Oh look, it's THIS **** again...

I think one thing was cool about traditional education here in Europe, back in XIX century - obligatory course of classical philosophy. If them people know something about history of thought, they would know, that it's not methaphysical attitude that determines your behavior, but your mental ability and quality of critical thinking.
#87 to #85 - teranin ONLINE (03/10/2013) [-]
That's not entirely true, although it isn't false either. There are a number of other factors that can effect your behavior other than simply ability and critical thinking.  The reason I say that is that there are definitely stupid people that make good moral choices, ones with little to no critical thinking skills. Realistically, it has a lot to do with your parents and the environment in which you grew up.

#159 to #87 - beerterror (03/10/2013) [-]
It depends on what your approach is. I am little idealistic myself, and support Socrates' moral intellectualism - if you really know what's right, you do the right thing. Besides, I don't like people who try to justify their actions somehow - "Allah told me to do it", "It was written in the Bible", "I've seen the light of Sefer Jetzirah, it was there" and so on. What you do is your responsibility alone, and only mental kids want to put the responsibility on someone else. Even on a deity! For ****** sake...
User avatar #83 - reigndrac (03/10/2013) [-]
It's not atheism or any religion that offends me, it's when everyone starts deciding to be dicks about things that we could rationally talk about.
User avatar #84 to #83 - teranin ONLINE (03/10/2013) [-]
While I do find a lot of things in this world to be ****** , I must agree that humanity's capacity for being dickheads to one another is pretty high up the list.
#86 to #84 - reigndrac (03/10/2013) [-]
Seriously. We should all take an example from owls. They look mean, but really, they're just there. They don't care if the mice they eat are atheists or Christians or what have you. They devour them equally then spit up their bones and fur in undigested pellets.

User avatar #146 - bluerangermartin (03/10/2013) [-]
I didn't call you **** Mike Treder. How can you say the crusades are bad when you are just a modern crusader holding the atheism flag? (Im an atheist btw but this **** annoys me)
