Something we can all agree on.

Doesn't matter whether your Christian or Athiest, scientist or artist, active about your beliefs or not, this is something I think we can all agree on.

If you want, replace "US Senator" with the title of a member of whatever political system is in your county.

But how can science be real if our eyes aren't real.

I fail to see how belief in postmortem punished for actions in life is a negative for political leaders.

There's a not so fine line between being religious and being a nutjob who will void all of scientific knowledge for their religion, this comic is talking about the latter type of person.

"Evidence" that fossils weren't deposited by a flood? Where is that evidence at?

"We know what age the strata is by the fossils that are in it and we know what age the fossils are by what strata they are in, hur...."

And radio carbon sating has been proven consistently inconsistent but we "know" because the indoctrination centers said so.

'indoctrination centers'

You mean churches?

The fact that there's such a huge backlash against the decline of religion shows that there's a decline. Don't worry it won't happen.

''The wonderful thing about science is that it doesn't ask for your faith, it just asks for your eyes''
Religious people would say : ''The wonderful thing about religion is that it doesn't ask for your eyes, it just asks for your faith.''
Neil deGrasse Tyson said : “The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it.”
Religious people would say : ''The good thing about religion is that it's true whether or not you believe in it.''

Although interesting things to say, they can be used on both parties. Science is proved and we're constantly making new discoveries with solid evidence behind. The science is already there, we just have to find it.

Now the part that annoys me. I believe that most religious people would say that the religion is also there, but there's no need to find it because of what it promises (eternal life, heaven, reincarnation, you name it). They deny anything from theories to facts and they just shut their ears and yell ''YOU'RE WRONG''.

Just a quick point. Besides the moon and the sun I have never seen any planet with my own eyes nor witness that the earth is spinnning around are star. I see the cicles of day and night, sure, i saw nice pictures of them and i have the explanation scientists give us in books. This looks kinda like the situation with religion in middle age to me.
image really showing my point by it's inaccuracy
i'm not religious just showing that all this could be ********

Who cares anymore?

Whether it's creationism or science; does it really make a difference in your life?
You're just gonna go 'hmph' and continue on with your life, regardless.

Personally, I don't know if there is a higher power or not. Really, I don't care. I just try to be decent. My brother is a fairly devout Christian. He is also one of the smartest people I know and is very open-minded. He believes that Jesus died on the cross and all that good stuff, but also follows science and believes in evolution, dinosaurs, etc. I don't bother to argue every little point with him seeing as one, he's my brother, and two, he doesn't try to argue them either. He (as well as most everyone at the church he goes to) mainly focus on not being ********* to those around them. Many of them, my brother included, try to find ways to fit science and religion together, and honestly, a lot of it sounds pretty reasonable. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a Christian, but please, don't be a close-minded one.

religion makes me happy. I wish it could make my atheist friends as happy as it makes me. But you have to let people decide to believe for themselves or it will never stick.
but science is real, lets not forget that.

I hate religion.

Now hear me out, I do not hate that religion inspires so many people to do good, I do not hate that religion gives hope to the hopeless, and I do not hate that religion gives meaning to the emptiest of lives. I hate religion because it breeds narrow minds. So much could be accomplished as a collective race if we all simply cast aside our religion, or keep it within ourselves and our churches, and off the battlefields. (be it warfare or political warfare)

Many people say that without religion to provide us with values, the world would be anarchy. But if you need a book to tell you that rape and murder and thievery is wrong, perhaps something is wrong with you. Religion was born in a time of confusion. It was, the science if you will, of the darker ages. It showed people the order of the universe, and gave them comfort. But I feel we've long since outgrown these beliefs, I feel they were not meant for the growing age of technology and information we live in today.

I do not believe in dictating other people's lives. I believe everyone should have the power to dictate their own. I will not tell you what to believe, or how to look at the world. All I believe is that our world will go nowhere but down until we stop seeing ourselves as different nations, and start seeing ourselves as a single race, and with all the feud that is tied to religion and those who kill in it's name, I do not see this day ever coming to fruition.

Allow me to rephrase my opening statement. I do not hate religion. I hate the narrow-mindedness it inevitably breeds. (Although I will admit there are many great people that can be religious and at the same time a valued and productive member of society.)
User avatar #39 to #34 - kousei ONLINE (12/11/2013) [-]
Yea, but religion actually explicitly asks for that narrow-mindedness. I am Agnostic, the neutral party. I do not claim to know whether or not god exists, nor do i ponder it any more than a passing amusement. There is one thing i know though, I will not give praise to any deity that would gift us reasoning, perception, and logic yet ask us not to use them. to paraphrase a famous quote (can't for the life of me remember who that is.)

unlike him i will openly state my disdain for religion, i don't mind theology and faith for these give morals and hope, but religion is nothing but an organization that breeds a single-minded approach to everything. Little brain tickler, what are the greatest atrocities of history? And on what basis were they committed?

But...the evidence DOES suggest they were put there in the flood. I hate how scientists abuse the trust people give them. Just because you are a "scientist" doesn't mean EVERYTHING you say is factual. Not just that, but maybe MAYBE they are lying because they are trying to defend evolution.
#58 to #57 - thorseph (12/11/2013) [-]
still, that doesn't account for every fosil ever, just the few that were put into mountains by floods, just because they were put there that way doesn't mean they aren't older than that.

>Anything you can observe with your eyes is an undeniable truth.
******** .

Scientists "proved" eugenics and racial degeneration to be a fact in the beginning of the 20th century. That "truth" gave too many people some horrible ideas (pic related).

Never deny that the observer has an impact on what is observed.

my view on religion is that you are fine to believe what you want, but don't go shoving it down other the throats of other people... I'm looking at you, bronies...

seriously, it's fine but don't pressure others into your beliefs. If you were having a nice day with your friends *muffled laughter* you wouldn't like it if one of them always kept talking about his religion. If you like it; good. but again: DON'T FORCE OTHERS INTO IT.

TL;DR: Your religion is like a dick; You can have one, you can be proud of it. But don't whip it out in public and wave it around. And for the love of *based god* don't shove it down others throats.
