500 years from now if someone sees this they are gonna believe it
User avatar #378 to #346 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
Yeah, because in 500 years, people's photoshop skills will have become so horrible that they can't tell the difference between the actual paintings and jpegs on Funnyjunk where someone Pasted Nicholas Cage's head onto them.

its called ancient photos dude, just like how we believe everything the Egyptians did
User avatar #390 to #385 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
No, you see, The Ancient Egyptians documented their history using Carvings. Images that were created from scratch to display a certain historic event or convey certain information. People in the future will know the difference between Paintings and Paintings with Badly Photoshopped Nicholas Cage heads on them.

Now, if someone were to re-paint those paintings with Nicholas Cage's likeness on them, future people may believe it, but that's because they might not even know who Nicholas Cage was, and therefor, they would simply think he was one of the People in the painting, and not think anything of it.

even if it was a bad photoshop it is still used to represent something, like any "carving" could be depicting something else but still look like crap, 500 years from now i bet they wont even need photoshop or even know what the hell we are doing, they will see this as poor art to something we believe in

I'm pretty darn sure that if people in the future come across THIS particular post on THIS Particular website (However they would do that), That means they probably have other images too. They will see this and then see other images and I'm pretty sure future people will be smart enough to figure out that not every single image ever created was about something religious. ESPECIALLY if they find it on FUNNYJUNK. I'm also certain that they will be able to read our language. We have people that can read Hieroglyphs, and those were used THOUSANDS of years ago, so why shouldn't people 500 years from now be able to read our language? No, my friend, I highly doubt any person in the future will mistake this Funnyjunk Post for a Religious depiction.

Oh my brainless friend, lets say this picture makes its way around the internet and someone prints it into the real world, then they put the photo in a airtight time capsule and when it is opened far from now they will think the photo was a representation to what we believe in, even though it is still badly photoshoped, thus making your comment false
User avatar #495 to #490 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
Wow, really, why did you call me brainless? Not only was that completely uncalled for, but you are also wrong. Nobody is going to put this random Funnyjunk post in an airtight Time Capsule, why would anyone ever do that? It's not even that funny, it's Nicholas Cage's head badly photoshopped onto some famous paintings. Nobody in the future would ever think this is a representation of something we believe in, and even if they did think it had something to do with faith, how would they piece together that it was about Nicholas Cage being immortal? If they can understand us well enough to understand that that's what it was about, they can understand us well enough to know it's also not meant seriously. Also, if anything from our time is saved, and this random Funnyjunk post was one of those things, all of those famous paintings would also be saved. Future people are not gonna look at this post and then look at the real paintings and think "Someone edited this Painting to include someone else's face.. THIS MUST BE THEIR GOD!". In 500 years history won't be so degraded that people won't remember us, things probably won't even be that different. Pick up a History book, man, those go back thousands and thousands of years. I'm sure one of them could go back more than 500.

I'm not brainless, I'm just using something called "Logic". And I was attempting to be civil with you as well, but you had to get butthurt.

It seems like you have a lot of time to kill and argue with someone you don't even know, and about the stupidest things. Oh and thanks for taking my original joke *if you can even call it that* and apply it to reality, did you have fun wasting your time?
User avatar #507 to #503 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
Oh, you post a trollface.jpg and act like you were trolling me the whole time? When in reality, you posted something silly, and I replied to your silliness with something pointing out that your silliness was silly, and you took it too seriously. Then you tried to argue with me, making very stupid points, and when I very calmly argued that your points were flawed, you got upset and called me brainless. Now that you've officially lost the argument, you try to make it seem like you were trolling me the whole time, just to save face and make yourself look like less of an idiot. No, I did not have fun wasting my time, because while you were thinking of ways to reply to my logic, I was playing Elder scrolls, checking back every so often to see if you had made a dumb rebuttal yet.
#508 to #507 - minecraftoutrage (02/15/2012) [-]
I didn't read! Trolololololo
User avatar #510 to #508 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
Which further proves my point. You didn't read it because you know that my post is full of logic, which defeats you completely. You have the debating skills of a 4-year-old, and instead of trying to make valid points, you shy away from me and don't read my replies because you've already lost and you know it.
User avatar #519 to #510 - minecraftoutrage (02/15/2012) [-]
Hey I am not the one who started this **** you ******* moron.
User avatar #524 to #519 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
And you resort to petty insults, calling me a ' ******* moron' as if that helps you in any way. I already know I'm not a moron, and I think you know it too. You're just trying to insult me and get me mad, or some such thing. But the fact that you're upset enough to call me names just tells me that you're mad. Which means you fail at being a troll, even if that had been your original intention. I didn't start anything. I pointed out that what you said was Silly, and you knew it was silly. It was your choice to start debating with me.
User avatar #529 to #524 - minecraftoutrage (02/15/2012) [-]
Firstly, enjoying my funnyjunking I see some random dude trying to disprove a 'joke' that I just randomly posted. Upon talking with said dude he is trying to prove me wrong for some unknown reason, maybe a health issue. And upon trying to end it the dude still wants to continue because his social life revolves around the internet and he can't handle being proven wrong. If you want to continue this then by all means continue.
User avatar #537 to #529 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
I wasn't trying to 'disprove' anything, I was enjoying my funnyjunk too until someone posted something obviously Silly, which I felt compelled to object to. When you 'Talked' to me, you were the one trying to prove that you were indeed correct, so then I proceeded to object to your flawed reasoning because It seemed illogical to me. I was trying to prove you wrong because you tried to prove me wrong first. It's not a health issue, it's human nature to want to point out flaws in someone's reasoning. You made no attempt to end the conversation, or if you did, then you didn't do a very good job of it, because all I see up there in the comments is you keeping the argument going with flawed logic. That is why I continued, not because my social life revolves around the internet, because it doesn't. I can handle being proven wrong, but I'm not wrong, so there's nothing to handle. You on the other hand have lost this argument already, but you still continue bringing up flawed logic because you still want to save face. You still want to make yourself look like less of an ass, which is understandable. Nobody wants to look like an ass. You are the one who can't handle being proven wrong, as evidenced by the fact that you began calling me names once you lost the argument. You end your comment by saying 'if you want to continue this, then by all means continue', which makes it seem like I'm petty when I reply to you, but that is just like saying "You are gay - If you disagree with me, you are gay!". It's locking me out of the conversation, ending it on a high note for you. It's easy to see through, and it's stupid, so please, if you're so mature, end the argument yourself.

Why do you care if someone posts somehing 'silly'????? And don't put words in my mouth (aka the: you are gay- etc)
User avatar #545 to #541 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
I didn't really care, I just felt what you were saying was insinuating something negative about the way modern society has interpreted history by saying that it would happen again, so I objected. I didn't expect you to reply. I expected you to know that nobody in the future will think we worshipped an immortal Nicholas Cage, and not argue about it. I didn't put words in your mouth, I just used that as an example. Just replace the word 'Gay' with 'Wrong' and you'll have the same thing.
User avatar #551 to #545 - minecraftoutrage (02/15/2012) [-]
Self correction: I was saying that if by some stupid chance someone in the future stumbled upon this post that they would believe we are trying to *poorly* represent something we believe. Like when we *stumbled* upon Egyptian carvings, we think the carvings represent what they believed in. In this case its the same thing but our *carvings* are poorly made but still bring across a point.
User avatar #558 to #551 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
Well, maybe that would be the case if this post was somewhere carved into the side of a building or strung up on a billboard somewhere (That would somehow last for 500 years), but I don't think we can compare the way we look at the past with the way the future will look at us. Things like the Internet have changed society so much that Literature and Sciences and Art have become different. No longer are they tangible objects, but have become strings of One's and Zero's floating around in the Intermawebs. If I'm honest, I highly doubt anyone, knowing what the internet was like at the time, would put any faith into anything they find on the internet. Besides, 500 years from now, people will still know about the big religions like Christianity and Judaism, or Buddhism or what have you, and they won't find any record of "Nicholas Cageism" :P
User avatar #561 to #558 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
Also, I can't reply to your comments anymore, and I get that you want this to just be over, so yes. Good Day, sir.
User avatar #560 to #558 - minecraftoutrage (02/15/2012) [-]
Seriously I am just trying to end this no need to more stuff.
#518 to #510 - minecraftoutrage (02/15/2012) [-]
I got a folder full of this **** , you still want to continue????
User avatar #527 to #518 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
You're the one who's continuing. And you keep calling me names. You keep saying I'm an 'Idiot' or 'Moron' or 'Brainless', but you have yet to give me a valid point. You haven't tried arguing with me using Logic or Reasoning, you've just called me mean things, which isn't Arguing, it's just Name Calling and it gets you nowhere. It doesn't make you look better, it actually just makes you seem like a bit of a jerk.
User avatar #530 to #527 - minecraftoutrage (02/15/2012) [-]
I save logic to those who can understand it.
User avatar #540 to #530 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
I can understand logic. This is proven to be very obvious by the fact that I employed logic against every one of your arguments. You also just said 'I save logic for those who can understand it', which means that you admit that you weren't being logical in the above comments. You called me names, you got upset, you are trying to save face. I'm not stupid, I can see through you, and you know that. I don't think you're stupid, I just think you're upset. I know you're not stupid, I know you're not an illogical person, you're just upset and you want to prove me wrong somehow, this is completely understandable. It's hardwired into you as a human being, but you aren't going to make it any better for yourself by calling me names and saying I don't understand logic when I obviously do.
User avatar #544 to #540 - minecraftoutrage (02/15/2012) [-]
Ok, I see where your coming from. Seriously though all you had to do was toenail clipping down my first comment and move on.
User avatar #548 to #544 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
I didn't Thu'um you down because it wouldn't really have gotten across the point I wanted to make. I just wanted to say that what you said was silly, I didn't expect you to take it so seriously.
User avatar #552 to #548 - minecraftoutrage (02/15/2012) [-]
I thought you were over reacting at first.
User avatar #554 to #552 - Compootor (02/15/2012) [-]
I just felt like replying to your silliness with sarcasm - which is also silly.
User avatar #557 to #554 - minecraftoutrage (02/15/2012) [-]
Well this is getting a little cheesy so I will end it with an apology and a "this was a big misunderstanding". And since I am tired as hell my debating *and awareness* is off, so you win this round. Until the next misinterpretation.
