Contradictory? When people argue against the bible they use crazy references that paraphrase a quote from an antagonist in the old testament, which protestant churches don't even read.
#193 - dotasaurus (02/28/2013) [-]
So the first chapters of the bible were horrid and god was horrid and did horrid things, but now because we only read the new testament and worship the new god, things are different? Does that make sense to you?

Do you look at a history textbook and skip to the american revolution just because you dont like history before that point?
User avatar #107 - niralius (02/27/2013) [-]
in christian cases they just follow and learn mostly from the new testament, and yes, we CHOOSE to believe in what this book contains, but that is just us, as what it contains, this same book tells us not to go shoving our beliefs down people's throats.
#134 - dotasaurus (02/28/2013) [-]
As I said in a post farther down.

Faith is belief without evidence, by definition.

Science is Fact based on overwhelming evidence.

So the teacher in your case, would be an invisible teacher, with an nonexistant voice, that you HOPE is there, saying something, that you just cannot hear....even tho all your other classmates are out at recess.

Just to add on the "book of contradictions," slight contradiction in certain cases is a good thing. One man wrote in the bible (don't ask me if it was John, or Luke, or whoever because I won't pretend to know specifically who) that his account of Jesus healing the cripple was healing one cripple. Another man who contributed to the bible claimed it was two men that Jesus helped.

This doesn't mean that either are wrong, but that the man who wrote about one cripple only wrote of what he remembers as being the more significant of the two. This contradiction between how many were healed can help the historical accuracy of the bible, because although the details of how many is different, we know multiple people saw it, and that they CLEARLY did not corroborate.

In a court of law, when two witnesses have the exact same story, lawyers will immediately say "They got together to get their story straight! Their credibility is shot!!"

The fact of the matter is that there is evidence.
User avatar #144 - niralius (02/28/2013) [-]
but what is so wrong in believeing? isn't that what everyone does on a daily basis? in which case believeing in The big bang is just what you say, a baseless belief, everyone believes in something like it or not
User avatar #166 - jedimindaugas (02/28/2013) [-]
Based on my own experience, I would describe faith as belief in a specific outcome of uncertainty. I mean we can have faith that someone will succeed even if the odds are against it, or have faith to roll two dices and get 12 point. Extracreditz did a good video on faith www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2Vx9qoLzFs

Now about the picture. Teach is the God and the books are various interpretations and religious texts that contradict each other.
#156 - dotasaurus (02/28/2013) [-]
There is a difference between Faith, and Belief.

Faith, is belief WITHOUT evidence.

Belief is similar to theory or hypothesis, its an idea with a little evidence to support it, but nowhere near enough to prove it as fact.

There is a chance that a belief can be proven scientifically, but it is nearly impossible to prove personal faith, by scientific standards....because personal faith is just that, personal. most "god" experiences cannot be repeated in a laboratory, or seen by others, or heard, or felt...which makes it impossible to prove.

Am I saying its wrong? Maybe, Just like the teacher analogy, you can hope he's there, and hope he's teaching or speaking, but you have a high probability of missing out on recess. (aka life)
#184 - CIS White Male (02/28/2013) [-]
From an epistemological stance, it would make sense that God is not obviously present to us. By this same stance, it is clear that having only isolated "experiences" instead of collective ones makes sense.

Look up John Hick's Soul-making argument
#181 - CIS White Male (02/28/2013) [-]
Technically a "theory" doesnt fit here. In science a theory has tons of evidence and is accepted as something as close to "fact" as you can get. A hypothesis is an idea, a theory is a reinforced widely accepted hypothesis that is in all sense correct. Theoretical and Theory have very little relation to one another, Theory has never implied little evidence.
#164 - CIS White Male (02/28/2013) [-]
"There is a difference between faith and belief"
"Faith, is belief"
wat
#165 - dotasaurus (02/28/2013) [-]
They key words being "without evidence" quote the entire sentence.
#176 - CIS White Male (02/28/2013) [-]
That still doesnt even make sense. That means that it is still belief and faith still go hand in hand but are just a little different
#180 - dotasaurus (02/28/2013) [-]
you can believe something without faith, but you can't have faith without believing something.

The difference is that faith is without evidence.
User avatar #161 - niralius (02/28/2013) [-]
I really don't feel like I'm missing life... I am driven by something and that helps me get through problems. I still drink (not heavily) and go do stupid stuff with friends, most of my friends are atheists and I go and do everything with them, we just have different beliefs but we still all have tons of fun.

You know, I had second thoughts that I was Actually on my bed, because he didn't feel like I was on my bed. Silly me.
User avatar #101 - stanislaw (02/27/2013) [-]
still thats not proof that hes on the bed.
#106 - dotasaurus (02/27/2013) [-]
If he were to video right now, via his webcam, him in the bed....that would be PROOF that he is in the bed....which makes his statement fact.

An opinion would him be saying "My bed is comfyer then yours because it is"...or in christian terms "my god is real cuz i say he exists".
User avatar #110 - stanislaw (02/27/2013) [-]

User avatar #95 - niralius (02/27/2013) [-]
the "teacher" in this case would be the bible, (yes, to me it is), but a pastor is there to help you based on what God taught through the bible.
#171 - beastarro (02/28/2013) [-]
The point of the post is to show that even though people want to pass the class (accept God), the fact that they have to randomly pick the right book (religion) or get set on fire (go to hell) is ridiculous.
#175 - CIS White Male (02/28/2013) [-]
I think you are falsely assuming that you are objectively either right or wrong in your choice of religion. How could any of us possibly know the mind of God on this matter?
#188 - beastarro (02/28/2013) [-]
Because hundreds of books have been written according to "the word of God" with specific instructions on what to do and what not to do. If you eat some bacon and the Koran is the correct holy book, you go to hell.


#103 - dotasaurus (02/27/2013) [-]
So the "teacher" is a obviously flawed and contradictory story of "gods word" that was written by men? That's like reading the book "I like to poop" in kindergarten and calling it scientific genius. Or a college physics professor with an associates degree in knitting.

I never said Christians were peaceful, just that not all atheists are peaceful.
And even after Stalin, the communist leaders of Russia were stroking war boners while their country starved. Corruption and brutality were still present, but just not on the scale of Stalin
The red scare wasn't justified, but was understandable. The Russians and Americans were at each others throats and almost killed every one.
The nuke silos were on Cuba, so we did the logical thing and tried to prevent any more nukes to get that close to america. And yes, we put nukes in Turkey, which started the whole Crisis, but that wasn't a terrible choice
