religion isnt the problem, it's people
User avatar #4274 to #4224 - hebs (05/06/2012) [-]
no it's religion. when you just believe in what ever with out question is when is easy to good people to do horrible things and still think there doing good. its true that hateful people is what starts it but religion is how they get masses of people to follow them. get rid of religion and think for yourself.

You know, I'm not one to typically boast about his Christianity, and I'm by far not the most religious of people. But reading this is kind of applauding. Seeing that all religions have 'extremists' that make the particular religion look like a bunch of 'Mass-murdering Nazi Sith from Hell'. And I'm not gonna sit here and rant about "You're a blasphemy spreading fool and should be dragged back to from witch you came" because I'm just not that type of person, how ever I will be more than happy to highlight the good things that religion has done to this modern day society and how it has shaped our nation and will forever be an outstanding force of both good and evil. Mother Teresa, MLK jr., Martin Luther (1400's), Jesus Christ, and many more. Although religion has not been a main influence unto the great leaders around the world it has had a large amount of influence (e.x. "One Nation Under God" you remember that? The 'Pledge of Allegiance'). If it wasn't for the belief in a purpose larger than your own, for the belief that you wont have life after death, that you'll just rot and the time you spend on this Earth is just wasted space, and that you Can't make a difference, this planet would be **************** . Even if you do not believe in religion you must not be ignorant to both the influence and the 'Just' purpose of it; for it is not only a direct attack on your own intelligence, but also a direct attack on stand for. But then again, I probably have Absolutely no idea what I'm talking about... | (^__^) | Have a nice day.
#4257 to #4221 - xxxsonic fanxxx (02/21/2012) [-]
You are aware that the "under God" part of the pledge of allegience is rather new, right? Just another example of cowardly people worshipping an imaginary being and forcing their beliefs on the culture and even law of those in their vicinity.

People are allowed to believe whatever they want, but that does not make it any less stupid. Religion does not "deserve" respect just for being religion, if anything deserves mine or someone elses respect it already has it. Of course there have been good people who have been religious, perhaps even a few inspired primarily by religion, but that does not make the idea any less irrational and, at its heart, rather childish.

Childish, immature and arrogant. To believe oneself so ******* important in a grand universe that most probably does not give a **** about us. When we die we are (probably) just going to stop existing. And that is a terrible, terrifying thought (for me, personally, at least), but not an excuse to delude oneself into believing in fairies or ghosts. So why the Judeo-Christian God, or any other?

As I said, feel free. But it. Is. Stupid.
#4258 to #4257 - xxxsonic fanxxx (02/21/2012) [-]
As an addendum, this life has the potential to be ******* awesome. Please, please, PLEASE do not waste it to conform to the wishes of some imaginary being to achieve a "better" life, because you most probably won't get another one. Rather, work for positive change in this world, and live to the fullest. Your life is too precious to do anything else.
User avatar #4265 to #4258 - unncommon (03/07/2012) [-]
Your religion is your own, whether it be atheism (Yes atheism is in fact considered a religion), Christianity, or what ever the hell you want it to be. I think that having the belief that if you do good deeds in this life in order to achieve great rewards in a second, more beautiful life is not only extremely thought provoking but also a good idea to have going around. If people were to go around with the attitude 'What ever happens here doesn't mean anything because we are just going to be lost in time once we die' is not only a dangerous belief, but also an ignorant one. To say a religion like Christianity, for example, is false is calling most of the people in history wrong, foolish, gullible. And with all of the inconclusive evidence that figures such as 'Jesus Christ' and events such as 'The spreading of the Red Sea' and 'The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah' it is surely ignorant to just say "...that's not true..." or "...that never happen...".

There are many religions, and many many many followers of religion. Of course you're going to get a breakout all of a sudden from stupid people that don't get the whole picture. It is only those who are causing destruction in the name of religion that get on the news.
The ones that do good to others are omitted from the news or any story whatsoever. TL;DR Those who do bad are acknowledged and those who do good aren't awarded for **** .

this is true but religion can and is used by leaders to get follows and commit horrible acts. there are good and bad people and religion doesn't effect there actions but the only way to get a good person to do horrible actions and still think there good is religion.

People like you are ******* ignorant and stupid. I do not care if you hate religion, or that you shove it in people's faces. I care that you give off the impression that you believe all religion is like this. In my religion Roman Catholic, there are beyond many new beliefs. The mass is constantly changing and we are up to date one everything. What you are looking at are extremists. There are extremists for everything! You take out the bad and look at the older side of religion. In case you had no idea, the younger generations are not like that. The church and the world will change, the older will eventually die off. I am waiting for the day that religious and non-religious people such as yourself hate mongering about religion and atheists. I believe what I want to believe, nobody has brainwashed me or told me. This is like putting an adult killer in the same prison sentence as a baby who accidently shot a gun. You are just as ignorant as the people who beat and batter gays or members of other religion.

your leader is the pope, when asked what he intends to change about his church he quoted mother theresa "the first two things to change in the church are you and me"

before you start hating read the descprition next time,
Qoute : EDIT : First of all, thanks for the support. Second of all, damn, I got a lot of hate for this, lol.

Look, I'm not trying to make religion look evil, I'm just pointing out the fact that it's often used in an evil way.
Everything that religious people did that was good - was good. Judging is always a bad thing.

Credit to some guy from Reddit who made it. Sorry I stole it, but I'm sure you don't mind me spreading the message.
I mean, this isn't a rage comic, this is a meaningful picture, so.. yes, I hope you understand.

#4137 to #4104 - xxxsonic fanxxx (01/19/2012) [-]
I'm an deist (believing that there once was a god but that it is no longer in existance) but I agree with Ultimega, this is on the far end with extremist nut jobs, coming from a religious (Lutheran instead of catholic) I can strongly say that anything from the "church" westboro baptist all the way to these examples are extreme, and although there are a significant number of examples here, and (to Ultimega) alot of the wars have been caused by religious means, there are tons of wars caused with no affiliation (such as pretty much every single amerifat war). and most of even most my extremely religious classmates and friends they do not get aggressive when it comes to talking about other religions and atheism. and that was a pole in the united states which is about 5% of all christians and it is an illusory correlation between the mass of Christians to all of christianity as a whole

Oh yeah, and that's why 30% of American Christians believe that killing civilians is okay?

User avatar #4122 to #4116 - ultimega (01/18/2012) [-]
YES, EXACTLY MY ******* POINT! That is 30% and extremists like the westboro baptist church are in that percentage. How about you get your ******* head out of your ass and realize that not all are bad. Might as well call all Muslims terrorists, all southerners red necks, all brits bad teeth, all whites racist, and all germans nazis.
#4124 to #4122 - fasgohng (01/18/2012) [-]
80% of America is Christian.
30% of those believe that killing people is okay.
That is 24% of America.
You don't see a problem with religion? You can go crawl in a cave and ignore the outside world. I don't give a **** if it's only the extremists, this is still a significant amount of people. Hell, it was probably even higher just 20 years ago.

Religion is poison and destroys society.
User avatar #4240 to #4124 - hodgenscon (01/24/2012) [-]
you do understand that those percentages don't reflect the actual 30% of the 80% of christians, right? they probably took a sample of maybe 100, 200 people. It's not religion that's the problem, or the "poison" as you state. It's the dumbasses who practice the certain religion.
User avatar #4133 to #4124 - ultimega (01/18/2012) [-]
I see the problem with some religion, but that census was taken from the older generation. Once they die off that rate will drop immensely. People think everybody who is religious is some idiot who doesn't believe in evolution and hate gays. WHAT, IT WAS HIGHER 20 YEARS AGO? NO ******* **** SHERLOCK! The older is dieing off and the newer is coming in. It's a change in ideas and it's happened before. So how about before insulting religion meet some of the good members. Religion has given me something to work in a community for. Religion isn't just bad ideas, it's a lifestyle trying to help the world. The problem is people are misguided.
#4134 to #4133 - fasgohng (01/19/2012) [-]
Religion pushes back technology and teaches kids false promises.
If you need your religion to live your life -- a happy life -- you are brainwashed.
Atheism is progressive, unlike Christianity, which is conservative.
People are misguided into thinking that just because their religion has good teachings, it must be something that is great for society, regardless of the extremists.

User avatar #4142 to #4134 - ultimega (01/19/2012) [-]
I never said it was good, or that it was bad. Atheists talk about people being brainwashed and stupid for enjoying their religion. Who are you to talk down to me when you care so much about proving that religion is bad. Nobody is going to change their mind because you said so.
Religion pushes back technology if you are stupid enough to invent everything thinking religion.
Christianity is conservative, not all the people are.
I don't need Religion to live my life, I can live without religion. It gives me something to do. I am not brainwashed, hell I don't agree with many parts of religion. It is part of my life in a way that I follow the things my priest teaches me. He teaches me how to be a good person, not to hate gays and other religions.

Athiest- evil because we disagree with popular beleifs, and some of us talk down to people who are religious...

Religious peoples- good despite brutally murdering millions, causing genocides throughout history, retarding scientific progress, causing the dark ages, preventing free speech, and promoting racism, because not all of them are terrible ******* people...

yeah religion totally has the moral high ground

When did I ever say that atheists were evil, do not put words in my typed out text. Dark ages were not fully caused by religion. You completely misinterpreted what I said. Most modern religion is good, MOST MODERN. Some religion is bad, not all. You classify all religion as though every religion is the same.

I hate when people don't get in a fight over religion, because those who are afraid of arguing their beliefs don't have confidence in it at all. Arguing about religion makes you understand the flaws in the possibility of a God existing. Saying you shouldn't argue about religion (or politics) is pretty much asking to have someone surgically remove your brain, since you're not using it.
#4121 to #4119 - miaandvinny (01/18/2012) [-]

implying that atheists have never hurt people before. One day religion will perhaps be cast out and the world will be fully atheist.

You're just using blind speculation that when everyone is atheist there will still be wars and human hatred towards each other.   
When poverty, abortion, divorce rates and prisoners (to just name a few things) are very low among the atheist population, I do not see this happening.

Look. Both atheists and relgious people badger each other, its a fact. Differences. I believe everyone should have the right to believe, or not, whatver they want! So what if religion has a darkside! Let them learn! We are not all assholes, we are not all killers or mass murderers, we dont all go criticize for someonelses beliefs! We are not all saints, we all have our problems. We don't all believe in evolution, or in the bible. This is mankind, each person, man and women, boy and girl, is different, this is the way it is. The fact is if would all just forget these dam differences, forgive and forget, we could actually be going somewhere. You see sopa? How about the finacial crisis? Global warming? Those are real issues! This stuff is been an issue alright, but weve lived enough and progressed enough to understand that fights over this go NOWHERE! Let the whole **** die, its just a dam waste of time. No one ever wins in a debate about religion, for each one is right.

Some of this was accurate, but some of it was way off. Unfortunately it reeks of Dawkinesque nonsense and non-thought.
First of all you have things like suicide bombers and 9/11 up there. That stuff isn't about religion. Suicide bombings in places like Palestine are the result of a very complex struggle over land and political autonomy that cannot be reduced to simply religion. The same with the destruction of the WTC. OBL very clearly stated that their reason for the attack was the sanctions on Iraq that killed 500,000 Iraqi children. Keep in mind that he worked with the US against the USSR because of what the USSR was doing in Afghanistan.
Then you have stuff like pedophile priests. I hope you are not suggesting that it is only religious people who are pedophiles, or that somehow their pedophilia stems from their religious beliefs? Because if you are, that's ridiculous. Consider this, the majority of people in the world are religious, and the majority of people in the world are not pedophiles.
Then we have the murder of abortion doctors. Lets try to look at it from the perspective of an anti-abortion person. They see abortion as murder, and people who perform abortions as murderers. If you knew that you could stop a murder, but the police weren't going to do it, wouldn't you do anything you had to to save someone? I'm not saying I agree with them, but I can at least see where they are coming from and its not irrational.
A lot of the other stuff up there is truly ****** up religious stuff, but yet again, if I used Stalin and Pol Pot as examples of atheists and why I think they are all wrong, I would not so much be making a proper criticism of atheism but instead I would be pushing an agenda in order to demonize people I disagree with.
There are ****** up people of all beliefs, and power corrupts religious people and atheists alike, but the solution is to respect each other, learn to leave fundamentalism behind and get along.
