CanadianCommie: TheWarmonger: Welcome to Fark :)

hey man I still remember when titty links were on the main page. That shiat was AWESOME.


Its been a long time. They changed the format, they took away the boobs, but at least I can still troll the trolls. Now that I post regularly.

I am sick of Tolerance. Tolerance is AGAINST humanity. The Fundamental (Strong, Weak, Electromagnetic, Gravity) Forces are not Tolerant, That's why the universe exists and evolves. Inorganic molecules are not tolerant, that's why life started. No life form has ever been tolerant, that's why we evolved. That's why we exist. INTOLERANCE. Each system doing it's best for itself. That brought us here. It's what we are. If Animals had been tolerant and weak, they wouldn't have eaten the lowest specimens, and there would be no life in this planet. It's hard to accept, for the modern human being, that being cruel is necessary. Even the most cruels man of today lie and justify their actions. There's no need to do that. Anything STRONG is GOOD. Anything that destroys weakness and elevates the human being is GOOD. Religion is Weakness of the mind. But Don't believe me. Let evolution decide. Stop being considerate to each other. That kills evolution. Let the Religious people try to destroy Atheism, and let the Atheists try to destroy Religion. Evolution will take care of choosing the best of each, and man will better at the end of the day.
Religions that preach tolerance, weakness, humility, poverty (Like Christianism) are PERVERSE religions. They foment the worst of the human being, and attack the instincts that made us what we are. They must be destroyed. Atheists that preach peace and tolerance and freedom of beliefs are weak too, and must be destroyed too.

It's time for the human being to embrace its true roots, and let evolution continue, take the evolution of the human race in its hands and lead it to the future. without mercy, without shame, without doubt. Any action that goes against the natural laws is SUICIDAL.

EL_FABREZ: The Name: I was just referring to people who try to paint Christians as adhering to a barbaric ideology by quoting the Old Testament.

I'm more afraid of people who take Revelations literally than the Old Testament.


So you're more afraid of the people than of the Testament itself? That's kind of weird . . .


[Insert grammar Nazi cartoon here]

Anyway, the reason you're more afraid of Revelations literalists than of OT literalists is because the Revelations literalists happen to be more radical, for political and social reasons that have little to do with Revelations itself. Also, OT literalists practically don't exist.

Since I've found myself splitting hairs with a moron, it looks like it's time for bed. Let me know if this thread solves any great metaphysical conundrums.

Maybe because the vocal Christians tend to be the really intolerant ones that hate science, art, literature, and anything else good society produces? I mean I realize that moderate Christians exist, but the loud ones are bible thumpers.

I'm personally looking into Taoism.. I find the beliefs sensible, and I think the philosophy could fit well into my life. Eh.

No, you're making observations with out considering the context of the situation:

When others try to legislate their beliefs onto other people in direct violation with the constitution, you're going to meet resistance.

If you just find the 'resistance' annoying, maybe you should pay more attention to the situation.

almafuerte: If Animals had been tolerant and weak, they wouldn't have eaten the lowest specimens, and there would be no life in this planet.

wut?

Let evolution decide. Stop being considerate to each other. That kills evolution.

We evolved to be considerate. It makes us function better as social organisms, thus helping to ensure the survival of our species.

let evolution continue

Evolution has never stopped.

I get the feeling that you think evolution is "survival of the fittest" and therefore "the strong survive". However, this is not true. Evolution is the survival of the fit enough, i.e. anyone able to adapt and reproduce. Evolution has no goals to make something stronger, better, more intelligent, whatever. Evolution is merely the change in allele frequencies in a population over time as those fit enough to reproduce and pass on their traits do so.

Perhaps you should take a biology class or two before condoning a course of action that would be more likely to hurt our species than help it. Perhaps take a look at the way various other social organisms evolve as well. Cooperation, compassion, and consideration are evolved traits in many social organisms and they are some of the main traits that help help those organisms continue their existence.

Yes brothers and sisters. I invite you to join the Church of Naked Boobies!!! No boobie will go unappreciated. No nipple will go unviewed. Big or small, we do not allow any dicrimination in my church. We just require all females who wish to be worshiped to submit a full color photo of the boobies in question. World peace is but 2 areolas away people. Follow me to the promise land!!!!

i don't know, neither do any of you. something does.

what you choose to call that "something" is your choice.

The Name:
Well, the issue of the person of Christ is a completely different issue. If you want to criticize Christians on that basis, then fine, that's a very fair starting point. I was just referring to people who try to paint Christians as adhering to a barbaric ideology by quoting the Old Testament.


I think honestly if most Christians lived by the words of Jesus, rather then the dogma of Paul or the barbarity of the OT, most folks wouldn't have any issues. However when ever the topic of homosexuality or something similar which Jesus never mentioned, the old stand by is digging in to the OT for support. In argumentation, you bring up a topic on direct, expect it to be used in cross. If you tell me that homosexuality is an abomination, prepared to be mocked with the rest of Leviticus.

I'd like to point out that this is a silly sweeping broad statement that can't possibly be true. Like "All muslims are trained killers", "All athiests wish the death of religion", or "All lawyers are weasels."

It's best to just walk away from people who aren't capable of proving their position, because they have exaggerated it to grab a headline. I dare say any eight year old has figured out how to identify when someone has skipped a few rungs of logical thought.

It's far easier(one would hope) to instead point out the shortcomings of any belief system itself, be specific as possible, and then work with someone to come up with solutions. It doesn't work even 1 in 3 times, but that's because people are mostly idiots.

/And then you can go online and argue with them there.

It depends on your definition of OT literalists. Literalist in the sense that they believe everything that is laid out in the OT happed exactly nor nearly so as written in the OT, yes they do. They just tend also to be revelation literalists as well which makes them hard to separate out.

Organized religion is the reason I am on the fence about a lot of things. Honestly, I am perfectly OK with making the "Leap of Faith" that God does exist. The thing that I have a problem with is some telling me I have to go to a certain location and a specific time to show my belief in God. Lets be honest, the Bible was written by men, therefore flawed. I really think God has a great sense of humor. (see Britney Spears) He's setting in heaven, with a beer in one hand, a remote in the other, and laughing at we puny humans who take out religion way too seriously.

/Steps down from soapbox
