i would just like to point out, any time a christian says anything about their religion, they get attacked by comments about how closed minded they are and how they shouldn't shove their beliefs down people's throats.
yet almost every day there is a post on funnyjunk bashing religion. how is that any better than the alternative?

Because of all religions christianity is the biggest joke.
All humans come from one man and his rib
a blue eyed white man was born in Jerusalem
two of each species of every animal on one boat

And then lets not forget a few other facts, like how almost every holiday was stolen from others- Let's take the upcoming one, for example. Ever heard of Samhain? It's the 'heretical' Pagan's holiday, originally a gaelic festival to celebrate the end of harvest. Today we call it halloween.

Should I continue justifying it or are you off the high horse?

1.) That's not just Christianity, but Judaism, and Islam too. The New Testament is what defines beliefs that are specifically Christian
2.) It never says anywhere that Jesus was white or had blue eyes. Popular media just deiced to make him that way. Logically, of course he wasn't. Derp.
3.) The bible teaches in parable all throughout it. 'Nuff said.

Should I continue pointing out why you're an asshole or are you off the high horse?

Jesus was not a blue-eyed white man. He was a Jew. He was made white because of the Europeans.
There is plenty of proof of a mitochondrial Adam and Eve. It isn't precisely as it's told in The Bible, but we did have two original mothers and fathers. They were of course separated by somewhere around 80,000 years, but from another perspe
The Biblical Deluge was a description of a major flood event that occurred 15,000 years ago. Use of the word 'world' is too ambiguous for any one interpretation of it. A lot of the Old Testament stories were used to define the Jewish culture and separate them from their opressors. I don't claim to know the Bible cover-to-cover, but that's how I see the structure of the Old Testament. Therein lies the error in your logic: the New Testament is a definition of Christian morality, while the Old Testament is something we study to understand the foundation of Jesus' ministry.
The holidays stolen from other pagan traditions - Samhein, Christmas (most knowledgeable Christians know that Jesus was more likely born in April or May), Easter, etc. - were 'Christianized' by the very early Catholic church in order to bring pagans into the Christian faith. This does not reflect Christianity, but power politics. The holidays described in The Bible are only Yom Kippur, Honukkah and the Passover Seder. We celebrate the birth, death and resurrection independent of this.

Unfortunately the rebuttals I have given are not taught often enough to Christians, and when people such as yourself bring up these very reasonable doubts people don't have a proper defense. I'm going to thumb you up for the legitimacy of your questions.

I'm.... somewhat confused.
World, världen, 世界, mundo, עולם, etc.
How would that be misunderstood?

But from another perspective, there's proof we had 10,000 original ancestors. Adam and Eve were the first, but not the only.

There's nothing wrong with faith, but there is definitely a problem when it is blind or indoctrinated. This is something religious institutions should consider when teaching their children about God, or any theistic concept.

The bible is not something that means exactly what it says on the paper. You have to analyse is for a deeper meaning. It's like in genesis, it states that God made the Earth in 7 days, it doesn't mean God made the Earth in 7 days, a day could mean be a metaphor for millions of years.

Exactly. Apparently religion bashers are just as simple minded as the people who take the Bible word for word since everything a religion basher says assumes taking the text word for word.

Thank you everyone for proving my point. It's all in interpretation, meaning from the time it was written until now, how many revisions have been made? Can it truly be pure anymore?

My own belief is like this: Follow your own ******* path, it's not truly YOUR faith if you're following someone else's beliefs.

I once heard a quote that sums it up nicely- God is not my shepherd for I am not a sheep.

There's only one reason for me not joining in on this religious debate, and that is because I am too tired to write out a big-ass novel of a comment explaining why you're wrong and I'm right. But I can't stand seeing people ignorantly argue about the classic "Religion vs. Secularism" debate. The thing that so many people fail to see is this: Religion and supernatural events/beings/places have been logically disproven time and time again, always having no effect on religious peoples' beliefs. Logical notions can be disproven faithfully in the same fashion. It took me a long time to realize how unproductive arguing about religion really was. And once I realized how unproductive it was, it didn't take me long to discover why it was so unproductive. The reason why arguing about religion is so pointless is because each side is arguing about two totally different things. The secular side is using logic to argue. The religious side is using faith to argue. Anything the secular side says regarding faith becomes completely null, void, and moot as soon as they say it. Anything the religious side says regarding logic becomes null, void, and moot as soon as they say it as well. So, therefore, nothing can ever be disproven logically and faithfully at the same time.

The question you need to ask yourself is this: Are you logical or faithful?

P.S. I realize that this is just what I was trying to avoid (a big-ass novel of a comment), but i can't help myself. I'm a rambler.

And I would just like to point out that this isn't a true statement at all. Just look at this as an example. The comment you made about FJ being anti-Christian has 3 thumbs. The comment made by plagueincarnate about why Christianity is ridiculous (and it IS ridiculous) has -2 thumbs. The other 2 comments opposing him both have 1 thumb. And my comment will probably get a negative number of thumbs because it is not pro-Christianity.

Precisely, it appears to be the exact opposite. The overall tendency seems to be to attack the anti-religious comments and thumb up the "I'm a christian but I'm cool and respect others beliefs" comments. Well of course we aren't going to get many uncompromising, fundamentalist Christians here, its FunnyJunk. But we do get slightly uncompromising members of the non-religious community and I wish we could stop acting like thats the same thing as angry, fundamentalist Christians. The non religious users have a reason to be uncompromising. We can make a choice to be cool with people believing things without evidence (which is fine), or we can choose to call ******** (also equally fine). But should we really declare being compromising atheists as the better option than being critical atheists? Some things are just too important. Correcting people basing entire lives off of logical fallacies may be one of them for all I know. After all, you can't run an insane asylum if you compromise with the delusions of all of the inmates. For an extreme example.

You will burn in the very depths of hell if you turn away from the napkin religion. All other religions are myth. Napkin is the son of paper towel. Paper towel created each and every one of us.

Now if someone asks me my religion, I'll say I'm a Napkinist.
