Where in the Bible or any religious text for that matter does it explicitly say that the universe is only 1000s of years old? Most of them seem to be a similar creation story and if you take Genesis literally you should stop talking right now. Matter of fact you seem pretty ignorant on what you're talking about. Do some research, friendo.

Maybe you should. Reading the Bible helped me become nonreligious ironically.
There are a lot of good religious people who accept that the universe is billions of years old, unfortunately many do not. And how is it fair to take part of the bible metaphorically and the rest literally? The bible states genesis as fact.

I had to pause my Flying Lotus because you can't read and I'm not fucking happy.

Do you know what the word "explicitly" means? Show me a verse in the Bible or any (legitimate) religious text where it outright states "the universe is around 6000 years old". If not shut the fuck up because Earl's verse was coming up and that stupid website you only fucking skimmed had audio that played while I had to read through it.

And where does it state it as fact that should be taken 100% as scientifically sound? Proof, friend.

The Bible teaches that the entire universe was created in six earth-rotation days (Exodus 20:11)
Also that "stupid website" owns the creation museum and is hugely significant in the creationist community.

Who decides what should be taken literally or metaphorically then? Should gays being an abomination be taken literally? What about wearing mixed cloth? Both of which are stated equally. I don't have a problem with people who take the entire bible metaphorically, it has really good morals. But you cant just take certain parts metaphorically because modern science has disproven them.

Does it give the definition of a day? Are you sure it doesn't say "day" to make it easy to understand (each day focuses on a specific thing)? There's a scene in "Inherit the Wind" where Drummond, a lawyer, asks Brady, a creationist, how long the days were since the sun wasn't around for a bit.

Are you implying all Christians are creationists?

Aaaaaaaand here comes your ignorance again. If you truly read the Bible you'd know of Romans 10:4, Galatians 3:23–25, and Ephesians 2:15. Those laws don't need to be taken anyway because they're irrelevant. The Bible doesn't claim it's stories to be literal fact.
User avatar #78779 - leightonsolomon (07/19/2014) [-]
I see what youre saying.
And yes, Christians ARE creationists
"Creationism is the belief that the Universe and living organisms originate from specific acts of divine creation."
If you believe you were created by a god, you are, by definition, a creationist. I think what youre saying is that youre not a New Earth Creationist. (Thankfully)

Once again, what specifies what should be taken literally and not be taken literally? It would be convenient to have an index in the bible stating what is "fact" and what is just a story.
I can tell you're more intelligent than most Christians, the ones who reject science specifically, so I hope you convince your fellow believers to be a little more aware

You made me proud by not being a fucktard.

And the problem with being creationist? Can you not believe that God started the bbt? What about God starting off evolution? I still don't see what's wrong with any of it.

Eh, depends on a lot of stuff. Genesis for sure, most of the OT isn't meant to be used as a guide, rather just history.

I didn't say there really a problem with being a creationist. A new Earth creationist yeah. But even old earth creationism doesnt make sense to me because we are so small and insignificant in the scale of the universe its crazy to think that we were specially crafted in the image of a god.

That is not what I said, at all. I am 99% certain that life exists elsewhere in the universe, thats my point. The Christian Judeo god does not make sense, because this god is said to have crafted us in his image and actively cares for us. Life elsewhere is highly unlikely to look anything like us, does he not care for them? I hope you realize I'm not an atheist, Im agnostic. Its possible that there is a god, but it is very unlikely it is Yahweh.

In defense of religious point of view, although at first these beliefs may have drastically impacted the faith of religionists, they (evolved) their thinking just a tad. Now they claim The Big Bang is just the process which occurred after the Universe's creation. and that since science cannot figure out why this universe exists, it must be God's doing. Evolution is also one of God's mechanisms under many theistic beliefs now.

However, if you're a creationist, as an alarming number of people in this world are, you don't believe in either generally.

Honestly, I'm glad that some forms of religion have begun to accept both theories, it's a start from my perspective. As science discovers more and we learn more about the universe around us, I think that God will become smaller and smaller and less of an answer until eventually the majority just doesn't believe any longer and regards it as a myth no differently than pagan beliefs.

It's sort of like miracles, at first they were epic, floods, parting of seas, mass disasters. Then they were like magic tricks, water to wine, infinite bread, ailment cures, water walks, and now it's crosses on goldfish crackers and Weeping Jesus tears (poop) trees. The closer we are to the source material, the less miraculous the event it would seem.
User avatar #78819 - teoragnar (07/19/2014) [-]
BBT and evolution only contradict genesis creation stories, which are not historical testimonies but myths to convey certain revelations.
Because Abrahamistic faiths are fundamentally different than man made idols.
"Is it not reasonable to face facts and realize the god you were taught fits in with the other gods you don't believe in,"
They don't.

There are plenty of things that religion helps us understand that science, sociology, anthropology, etc. don't quite help us understand. So until those things are completely understood religion in some form will always be around. Plus spirituality is something may or may not be rooted in our very being, even if people don't believe spirituality probably won't go away.
#78785 - dehumanizer (07/19/2014) [-]
Okay mr science man explain how those contradict the bible without using litteral interpertation of genesis.

Both those theories were discovered by christians :^)
User avatar #78895 - leightonsolomon (07/19/2014) [-]
No.. Darwin was an agnostic
in 1879 he wrote that "I have never been an atheist in the sense of denying the existence of a God. – I think that generally ... an agnostic would be the most correct description of my state of mind."
And the Big Bang Theory was discovered by a a plethora of scientists, of course some were christians.

And like I said to teoberry, how is it fair to pick and choose what should be taken literally and not literally in the bible. If we know that genesis is not true, why do so many people take it as such?
#78948 - dehumanizer (07/20/2014) [-]
How can the 7 day creation be a litteral account? Do you think the write was there to see it?
User avatar #78951 - leightonsolomon (07/20/2014) [-]
Do you not recall that most writers were speaking "the word of god"
"God" was telling them what to write

And everyone is missing my point. Even if you dont accept that part of the bible as fact, there are a lot of fucktards out there that do. And it hurts me.
#78963 - dehumanizer (07/20/2014) [-]
Go research on bible literalism then.

No it doesent, you can go tell that to the 20 milion christians that were killed in Russia becuase of atheism.

Tell that to the estimated 23 million killed during the crusades. Religion is significantly, and historically, more violent than the lack of religion.

#78967 - leightonsolomon (07/20/2014) [-]
Do you seriousy believe atheism has killed more than religion? How is that possible, considering religion VASTLY outnumbers the lack of religion. Atheism is relatively new. I have no personal bias on this either, as I'm agnostic. The point is people have been fighting over which god is the true god for centuries.
#78968 - dehumanizer (07/20/2014) [-]
Yeah go ahead, post some more wars over political control and blame religion for it. Meanwhile pic related.

User avatar #78969 - leightonsolomon (07/20/2014) [-]
Those are literally defined as religious wars, what the fuck do you think I would blame?
If youre going to pull Fedora wearing neckbeard jokes from now on theres no point in me arguing, thats just stereotyping and ignorance, but if you want to stereotype, lets look at the fact that there are numerous studies showing a direct correlation with intelligence and lack or religiosity.
www.humanreligions.info/intelligence.html

In addition, Steven Hawking, Albert Einstein, Neil degrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, Michio Kaku, Richard Dawkins, and more of the greatest minds on earth are all agnostic or atheist. Does that not say anything to you? Do you really believe the most intelligent people on Earth are deluded?
#78973 - dehumanizer (07/20/2014) [-]
Its bullshit because the reason for those war was political control and religion is only what defines the diffrent sides. If it wasnt for that people would find some other reason to group eachother and continue fighting.

That site is anti-religion biased.

Is wikipedia and all the sources below anti religion?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religiosity_and_intelligence

I like how not a single person on that list is alive today. OF COURSE theyre religious. I wouldve been religious if I was born years ago, even Richard Dawkins claimed he would have been a christian if he was born more than a 100 years ago, simply because it made sense then and logical at that time. There was no evidence against it and atheists at that time were rare as hell. What makes people today look dumb is that science is advancing radically and more and more evidence is coming out againt most religions. Rather than accepting that maybe their god is fiction like all the others, they simply adapt their teachings.
Its the same thing that happened with heliocentric theories. People were BURNED at the stake for believing that earth revolved around the sun and not the other way around. Christians believed whole heartedly that the Earth was the center of the universe, and even quoted the bible for their proof. When science finally prevailed, they adapted their teachings and acted like thats what the bible said all along.

And just because I'm nonreligious doesnt mean im a communist, please tell me you dont believe that. I actually have a lot of conservative views and know just like everyone else that communism is bullshit. Stop comparing me to a dumbass communist.

Ok show me evidence agains the existance of a devine beeing. Also nice to see you are ignoring the fact that Galileo, a christian was set up by one of his opponents who managed to convince the pope to kill him. The univerce is endless so that means that every point could be its secenter thus the earth is the center.

Yet you still dont want to associate yourself with atheists.
User avatar #79403 - leightonsolomon (07/21/2014) [-]
There is no evidence against a God, just as there is no evidence for one. Thats why most scientists are agnostic.

And you clearly know nothing about the universe. We don't know if its endless, but even if it is, that means it has NO center. You cant even spell anything right either I don't know why I'm still arguing.

I feel you. Many people need to believe in something. A lot of people are afraid of the lack of an afterlife, but you have to remember that once you die theres nothing technically. No happiness, thats true, but also no sadness. "You" meaning you're conciousness, dont exist. Theres nothing to be afraid of though, I mean you didnt exist for 13 billion years, itll be just like before you were born. So I wouldnt let you're fear limit the truth, as Richard Dawkins says it best, "There is a difference between what is comforting, and what is true." The thought of there not being a god is kinda scary sometimes I know, but its also exciting. It means theres so much we dont know and so much we still have to discover. you're anxiety will pass in time, the same happened for me.

My life is full of anxiety right now and there's been a heck of a lot of moments where I might have died and I didn't, so I'm slightly biased towards the idea of there being a god on the factor of fear of death and happy for fortune.

I feel you. Many people need to believe in something. A lot of people are afraid of the lack of an afterlife, but you have to remember that once you die theres nothing technically. No happiness, thats true, but also no sadness. "You" meaning you're conciousness, dont exist. Theres nothing to be afraid of though, I mean you didnt exist for 13 billion years, itll be just like before you were born. So I wouldnt let you're fear limit the truth, as Richard Dawkins says it best, "There is a difference between what is comforting, and what is true." The thought of there not being a god is kinda scary sometimes I know, but its also exciting. It means theres so much we dont know and so much we still have to discover. you're anxiety will pass in time, the same happened for me. Live up this time you have on earth and dont let the fear of death dictate you're beliefs.
User avatar #2487 - cognosceteipsum (07/13/2014) [-]
Definitely. But a f fallacy I feel many atheists do is "just because it's uncomfortable doesn't make it true"

It's a small confirmation bias on their side too, I'd say. I believe in souls for the moment. I'm not sure, but that's why I enjoy life almost every day rather than dwell on the fact I'm going to die. I think it's also kind of arrogant for people to worry that much about their death, as if they were the center of the universe.

Makes sense. I try not to be a dick to super religious people. I don't know which religion is correct, or if any of them are, but if science proves part of it wrong, I'll be less likely to take its followers seriously.
User avatar #51 to #48 - cognosceteipsum (07/13/2014) [-]
That's not actually what new atheism means... new atheism is best portrayed with a cartoon I saw... "Old atheism: PRiest: Be quiet! Atheist: Yes yes... New atheism: Priest: Be quiet! Atheist: No, you be quiet!"
User avatar #49 to #48 - syrianassassin (07/03/2014) [-]
you cant justify religion by science.

it is like trying to say the scientific method is approved by philosophy.

science is a branch and religion is another far branch. religion can give clues for science. like in the quran when god says : have not the disbelievers considered the heavens and the earth was once joined entity, then we separated them and made from water-every living thing. will they not believe? al-Anbiya` 21:30

if religion is going to give us all the science, the sea will not be enough and there will be more to say.

Say, "If the sea were ink for [writing] the words of my Lord, the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even if We brought the like of it as a supplement." Surat Al-Kahf 109

imagine all the science is written in the quran, it will be impossible to read!

Yay! Yeah, that was the old me. Rather cynical and angry. So much has changed. Thanks for changing avatar. I'd rather not have an avatar considering I will most likely just change and I'd rather be faceless, ever changing, you know? Oh well one thing.

I think you're question about if we would change if aliens came is very interesting. There would be ONE change as far as I see it: we would unite, if only momentrarily
Another change I can imagine is mass panick... at least with the masses... I mean, c'mon. These people who just walk around .. late job, home, tv, sleep, eat, and so on. Pffff.

Although I can imagine Stephen Hawking being only interested, given that they are peaceful.
