You say God --- give me a choice
You say Lord --- I say Christ, I don't believe in Peter Pan, Frankenstein, or Superman.

amquelbettamin: So much of what humans are in our very nature is religious. It has been that way since the very first cave paintings and will remain that way when we are watching two nebulae pass through each other from our starships one day. Athiests are denying themselves a major part of what it is to be human. Athiesm really is a loss and should not be responded to with anger.


Yeah...and according to Kirk Cameron we all have a God-sized hole in our hearts...and you know what? I agree. It's very compelling. BUT IT'S NOT PROOF OF ANYTHING.

amquelbettamin: Farking Canuck: amquelbettamin: Pinker: The surprising decline in violence

As I said in my previous post when you were actually claiming that people were getting "less evil" (I noticed you abandoned that line pretty quick), we are imposing more order through rule of law and better enforcement through forensic science. So yes, in societies where rule of law is well enforced we are seeing a decline in violence. In places were society is in tatters the violence still runs rampant.

If this decline was due to your god's magic, don't you think he could have improved it everywhere?

Whereas, if it is due to the evolution of society combined with the improvements in forensic sciences (i.e. non-magical man), there would only be improvements where societies are stable. And, funny enough, this is the case.

As I age I have started to equate evil with disorder and good with order.


You're Lawful Neutral?

Popular Opinion: Smgth:
There's nothing wrong with doing something good because it makes you feel good. There's no shame in mentioning it. I did.
MY point was merely that doing good because you think it will afford you a special place in heaven, under the cloak of piety, is disingenuous.
Frankly my view is as long as charity gets done, I don't care the circumstances. I don't care why people do it, I don't care if they brag about it, I don't care if they think it will get them special favors.

and that comes full circle back to my point.
i don't see that many non faith-based groups.
even secular groups, like high school clubs, tend to have volunteers that are religious, so saying they are not also motivated by some church teaching would not be true.
i went to both parochial school and public school, and we never did things for the homeless or poor in public school (except private clubs).


Modern secular taxpayers have done more for the poor than every religion ever invented, combined.

Your failure to see your surroundings does not accordingly adjust reality.

That would be religious thinking :)

Atheism is a Religion. A piss-poor Religion, but a Religion regardless.

The amusing part is where an almost endless supply of Schoolboy Atheists will launch into ever-decreasing circles of denial, and exercises of semantics worthy of any medieval theologian.

Pretty much that.

Forming a concrete image from only what is observed and felt, and attempting to apply that to the wider world, despite others having noted otherwise even linked to citation, is not exactly rational thought, and very similar to the mental leaps and bounds stumbles and trips that many religious people make.

It is very akin to a southerner not believing we have snow up north, people thinking the moon landings are fake, etc.

Yeah!

Ahmadinejad, quit gassing your own people and developing nukes to lob at Israel.

UN, quit writing strongly-worded letters to Ahmadinejad.

What?

Do you really not grasp the concept that sometimes fighting is what is needed? Or that when meting out punishement/reprimand, not all things are created equal?
Or are you of the philosophy that "fighting never solved anything"?

Okay, how about...

Southern whites, please quit lynching blacks and allow them to live as free men.

Martin Luther King, please stop assembling large masses to sue for your right to live.

My point is, taking a "centrist" role in any issue where one side has a distinct advantage is as bad as taking the side with the distinct advantage.


What about taking a useless non sequitur-spouting outside agitator role?  Where does that rank?

That is how discussion works Sparky.  We have a starting point, the article or headline as is typical on Fark, and as we discuss, the thread topic drifts and branches out, differing opinions and ideas and concepts are traded. Without that, all threads would be incredibly short and Drew wouldn't make as much money from page hits.

If you dislike discussion, maybe, just maybe, the comments sections of Fark is not for you.

A non-exhaustive list I was able to pull together really quick.


Deuteronomy 4:39:  Acknowledge and take to heart this day that theLord is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other.

Deuteronomy 32:39:  See now that I myself am he!  There is no god besides me.

1 Kings 8:60:  so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God and that there is no other.

Isaiah 37:19-20:  They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands. Now,  Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you,  Lord, are the only God.

Isaiah 44:6:  "This is what the  Lord says - Israel's King and Redeemer, the  Lord Almighty: I am the first and I am the last;  apart from me there is no God.

Isaiah 45:6:  so that from the rising of the sunto the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am the  Lord, and there is no other.

Isaiah 45: 21-22:  And there is no God apart from me, a righteous God and a Savior;  there is none but me. Turn to me and be saved,all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.

Jeremiah 16: 19-21:  "Our ancestors possessed nothing but false gods, worthless idols that did them no good.  Do people make their own gods?  Yes, but they are not gods!"

ciberido: FloydA: How do you think I should respond to him?

Assume that he reacted as defensively/rudely as he did because he felt as if you had attacked and insulted his deeply-held beliefs.  Ignore the sentences before and after the meat of  Somacandra's argument and focus on that meat ("People of varying religious commitments have made (and continue to make) remarkable contributions to science, medicine, engineering,  economics and many forms of related knowledge")

If that had been all that Somacandra had said, then how would you have responded to that?


If that had been all that he said, I would have replied that it was certainly correct, but it in no way relates to my point.  He basically set up a straw man, presented a powerful refutation of the point that he wished I had made, while ignoring the point I actually made, and then threw some insults in to top it off.

It wouldn't bother me if he was just some troll, but he has been reasonable and interesting in the past, so it ticked me off that he would act that way.

No one said they "give as much or more".  In point of fact, atheists are still a minority, so where you got that supposition from is irrational in and of itself(as a collective).  As far as any given individual goes, an atheist can and sometimes does give just as much as any given religious person.  To deny the possibility because you haven't witnessed it personally, at this point in the game, willfully ignorant on your part.

What was said is that they do give.  Citations were even given, so it's not just "because I say", but rather, documented actions and organizations.

But whatever, stick your head back in the sand, preferably far enough so that you can no longer type(or breathe).

you confuse omission with contradiction.
my statements stand.
your references are no more relevant that your own personal experiences would be (to me).
if you had said, "I personally witness more atheists giving and we have more atheist charity groups and church based", i may believe you as much as any link, but it still doesn't represent my reality, or what i see.
if i saw that non-church going types like myself were more giving than phony-baloney bible toting idiots, i would happily say so.

No, it is observation of fact, but not only that of myself. But even if I was alone in my observation, it would still carry equal weight of your own observation.

Say, you claim I have no snow in my yard, based on the logic that you do not, you assume the general rule that snow cannot be in any yard.

I claim that I do have snow in my yard.  That is not an opinion, that is fact.  If I chose to prove it, I could take a picture and link it, I could fly you here and let you observe it.

My opinion, that I like snow, that is what is not able to be "proven" as such.

Now, you can continue to troll with big lebowski logic, that's like, you're right man, but the more you do it the more you convince people that you're pants on head retarded.  Maybe you're genuinely retarded, but even if you're play acting being retarded, guess what, that's still retarded.  If that's the case, congrats, you fooled me, I think you're retarded.

Why do Christians have to shiat on everything Atheist have.

If an Atheist went into a church and came out talking about herd mentality and how Christians are just herd animals, and now that Atheist church is doing the same thing, that it is all about the fellowship and not about the worship.

But you know, they aren't.

Christians feel the need to go around and make sure to tell everyone else how they are doing thing wrong and how they are just looking out for you for being to dumb to know that God will handle it all for you if you are willing to just give over to his glory and admit you are nothing but a broken shell of a piece of shiat that must pray constantly or you will perish in a lake of fire for all eternity amen.

You use the same dishonest arguments as theists. You build strawmen about our positions and claim to know what everyone thinks. You also refer to us as a group ... which the religious insist on doing.

I highly doubt that you are a non-believer.
 
2013-02-11 01:53:17 AM  

Farking Canuck: You also refer to us as a group


This is what I find humorous.  Personally, Farking Canuck, I hate you, for your position on other matters.

But because of this thread I took you off ignore and more simply noted those stances and this one under a favorite label.

Because I agree.  We do see the same faults in this seeming poser.

But outside of that, we're a group?  That is a laughable concept.  Sure, some atheists group together.  So do people who play chess, or like to discuss astro physics, or porn afficionado's.  There's no sin in being part of a social group, except as purported by those who find some reason to oppose said group.

One huge motivator for people to band together?  Black sheep, and common adversaries.  Basic human sociology right there.  If there is a heavy concentration of social atheists, odds are there is a reason for it.  Take the (again, a tired example, but it fits so well in so many situations) Atheists in florida, adversaries of the Dominionism of Polk Under Prayer.  They gain momentum and members specifically because those religious fold in Polk County are farking assholes.(Seriously, these guys approach Westboro Baptist level of farked in the head).

In a sense, you could say Public Opinion here was wrong, but has played a part in fulfilling his own prophecy, by giving people like you and I that common ground, by being a blathering idiot at the same time as he also tries to be coyly vitrolic.

I would sincerely wager real money that PO was raised christian(or closely to/in a christian community), still thinks like one, despite the admission of having no actual belief.  A common thing in arbitrarily self identified atheists with such a history.  I think the whole "why give up the good parts of religion" may just be a bit of projection, in that he clings to some of the morality and logic that amount to a turd floating in the pool that otherwise could have been a great day in the sun but is now soiled by human waste bobbing and weaving in the gentle waves, slowly dissolving so that there is a brown halo of a cloud around the floater.

Let us be reminded what actually transpired in the thread that got you the heat.

Popular Opinion: atheist is another word for selfish and don't give a f*ck about anyone else. jmo.


Sorry you live by a bunch of assholes, but it is no excuse for blind prejudice.

so i guess that doesn't apply to you either.
as i said, it was jmo, based on what I see personally.

Language doesn't really work that way though.  Individuals don't get to arbitrarily assign words a new definition.  Sure, it can catch on, that is the nature of language.

But you take social rules into account, trying to turn a label into a hateful meaning based on your prejudice is a whole other situation.

/when the fark did jmo start, thought that was a typo
//you're either very young, or very sheltered/inexperienced
///it's traditionally "imo" (in my opinion)

After looking at the Urban Dictionary, it's something that never caught on, and is either largely mocked or used in a wide variety of ways by very disturbed people.

Or maybe I'm wrong, are you offering 5$ blowjobs?
Asking me to jerk you off?

IMO has a pretty solid first page.

The first entry for JMO looks like someone trying to make something work(who's username is JMO...), oddly enough, like you and your personal "definition" of atheist.
