Do we really have to do this again?
Double Standards, if you don't want people preaching you about God then don't preach them on his nonexistence.
Double Standards: Nobody cares when people preach about God, but everyone gets their knickers in a twist when someone preaches about his nonexistence.
Have you even seen the way some atheist people on this site react when someone says God exist? Obviously not...
Oh I'm not talking about on here, but about real life. This website seems to have a disproportionately larger liberal/atheist population, but I can't mention that I'm an atheist on facebook or even in person to most people without them getting offended, and then trying to preach back to me. Sorry, I probably should have been more clear in my original comment.
Have you seen the way some Christians react when someone says god doesn't exist? Obviously not...
I didn't say anything about that...
Just a quick question....do you believe this? http://www.landoverbaptist.net/...ad.php?t=29924
LOOK OUT, WE ATHEISTS ARE ALL SECRET COMMIES!
I laughed for about five minutes straight at that.
"Only a bad day away from going on a genocide spree."
Wow that's interesting. And no I don't believe any of that.
Lol "if we can think of god he exists". I can think of magical unicorns who poop out rainbows. (ps- im not saying anything negative about god in this comment, just about the idiot who wrote that)
EVERYONE CARES WHEN SOMEONE PREACHES ABOUT GOD
So very true.
can't be so sure. can science or logic explain everything, or is there a spiritual realm of some sort? I don't have the answers, but I'm not so quick to make fun of other people's beliefs
I am not trying to make fun of their beliefs, it's just my opinion.
And your opinion is that religion is bullshit. Dude, just say it.
I don't think it's bullshit, i just don't personally believe in it.
Who says it's imaginary and who says it's not? You aren't one to decide.
You see mr clown man too?
Who would doubt his existence?
I know I'm not one to decide, this is just my opinion.
Everyone has their own opinion. Some people's are based on logic and there is no proof of God. Really how could anyone know if there was a god? if there is an afterlife, you would only know once your dead.
I know that's exactly what I'm saying. No one has proof of a god and no one has proof that there isn't a god.
yeah yeah yeah, i'm christian, believe in god and all, although i obviously diasgreed with the main point, i still thought it was pretty clever
You do realize that you have no proof that God exists, right?
You do realize that you have no proof that God doesn't exist, right?
You do realize that you have no proof that God does exist, right?
I never claimed he did, now did I? And before you say you never claimed he didn't, you were replying to Credetemi's comment.
Argument ad ignorantiam
@1310203 (Anonymous): It's a joke, ok credetemi? and anon, lack of proof something does exist isn't proof that is doesn't. Like aliens.
(Your+name+(optional)): I am well aware that lack of proof something does exist isn't proof that is doesn't exist, I was just mentioning that you have no proof. I have no proof either, as we all know.
Who the fuck ever said science explains everything?
I just would like to point out that this post was very clever.
I think everyone,no matter their religious views, is the same in a sense. Atheists (some NOT all) get offended when people preach and Christians (some NOT all) are offended when people say God doesn't exist. To be honest, no one really knows. It's called a BELIEF for a reason...
Atheism, religion, beliefs, blahby blah blah blah. All seriousness (and offense) aside, this post is extremely clever. A bit daring, maybe, but damn clever nonetheless. I respect that
Write a post about religion and suddenly everyone takes an amirite post seriously...
I remember when amirite actually had serious posts...
OH MY GOD SHUT UP!!!! I'M CHRISTIAN AND I LAUGHED GET YOUR KNICKERS OUT OF A TWIST.
(Your+name+(optional)): You're Christian. Naturally you laughed at this post.
Hahaha nicely done
People need to stop freaking out.
First of all, I would highly appreciate if everyone stopped telling Atheists they were going to Hell, because we do not believe in Hell so we personally do not care.
Second, I do not care what religion you are, you have your beliefs and I respect that so please do the same for me and not try to convert me because I strictly believe in science.
Last, I'm sure the person who made this didn't mean that they hated your religion or god (which you can't hate god if you do not believe in him anyways, therefore irrelevant) and it was a witty and funny joke, not meant to be taken seriously.
All of these comments kind of remind me of, in the seventh Harry Potter book, when Dumbledore says to Harry something along the lines of "Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why in the world should that mean it's not real?"
I don't know... talking to someone you can't see or hear is a lot like having an imaginary friend. But as long as God is real to you, in your own head, why should you care if someone says religion is imaginary?
Anyway.. I'm rambling a bit, but I really like this post. Funny and quite clever :)
Why is your name contradicting your post?
I just decided to make that my username...
Of course a joke has to be taken so damn seriously..
I'm sure everyone who is arguing realizes it's a joke but it's actually a little offensive to some.
It's a joke, which means the op isn't being serious. You're not supposed to take joke seriously
Hahaha. That was brilliant.
If anyones read the bible it makes absolutely no sense... just saying
See, I love how you can guess it by yourself, you're probably not right.
THAT IS JUST MY USERNAME OK? IT IS A JOKE AS WELL AS MY POST SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE IT SO SERIOUSLY. OK?
Sorry, people bug me about it all the time and I get sick of it.
That's alright, I understand.
okey dokey, thanks.
I don't understand why this is in the joke category.
I agree, it should be in the "sad but true" category in something, 'cause this planet is full of idiots.
There will be a day when we shall all find out the truth... Then you can tell me that my God is 'imaginary'.
Really? How do you know God exists? Did he ever come down and say "I am God, worship me!", no? Then how do you know he exists? That's right, you don't so shut up you clearly have no idea of what you're talking about.
This is probably asking for trouble, but I'm guessing you forgot the bible?
Ha! The Bible? Anyone could have written a bunch of random gibberish in a book and called it the holy word. If I wrote a book about aliens coming down and invading Earth people would probably call it a religion in two thousand years.
Something called FAITH. And experiencing super natural things.
Seriously? I feel like I'm explaining this to a five year old.
I obviously have reasons to believe what I believe.
Okay, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, why do you believe?
Because he is real... I can't even explain my faith... That's why it's faith, you just know. And I know my God is real. I'm sorry you probably don't know what I'm talking about.
I'm sorry you're so stupid as to blindly follow something without any evidence and an extreme amount of contradicting evidence. I'm sorry you're another idiot being fooled by churches witch allows them to rake in the cash. I'm sorry you're such a tool.
I'm an Atheist myself, and I may not agree with the Church and their teachings, but calling somebody stupid for what they believe in and insulting their beliefs is crossing a line...
YOU might not agree with it, but doesn't mean EVERYONE disagrees with it. You should respect that and they should give you that respect back. Do you see Wynaut calling you stupid? No. So what gives you that right?
GOD FUCKING DAMMIT! People always think this about me. I don't hate her because of her beliefs, I hate her because of here condescending attitude. "I'm sorry you don't know what I'm talking about." TRANSLATION: "I'm sorry you're going to hell but I'll pray for you, LOLZ!!!!!!1121!!!!" This bitch has told me "I hope God blesses you." and "I'll pray for you." She pities me because of MY beliefs. That makes me quiver with rage. I would rather have any ones hate then their pity.
I know exactly how you feel...trust me...my mother thinks its a phase, my dad doesn't even acknowledge my beliefs and just flat out says I am wrong AND I go to a Catholic school.
I don't think that you hate her, I just don't like it when people say they're dumb for their beliefs considering I get it all the time
Yeah, I go to a Catholic school to, but, I'm agnostic, so It makes it a little better. My mom tells me not to tell anyone or else I'll get killed. (she really thinks this) I've also been told I'm going to hell many times by my friends.
My friends know and they respect it, which is good. My mom tells me not to tell people and if my family did find out I would probably be disowned. So I really do know how you feel
Oh shit. Man that sucks, just wait a few more years until you're eighteen and wait for the next reunion and then you can tell them. With whatever follows just remember "Live well for it is the greatest revenge."
I planned on letting this be one of those things that no one finds out. Some of my family is very old school and religious and it would just not be a pretty sight. But I don't really mind it's just what I believe and I'm used to just keeping quiet, it took me two years of full secrecy to finally decide to tell people
If I was in your position I'd go fucking insane.
I have just adjusted to it...luckily I have my twin brother who is on the same boat along with like three of our friends. When we all get together we talk about our views but other than that I just am really careful with what I say and it makes me a stronger person in the end
I never said whether I believe it one way or the other, but you had to expect that answer right? It's supposed to be the word of God. So by asking has he ever come down etc, you had to know someone would say that.
Have you read the bible?
...? I suppose I should answer "not all of it". I have read sections and such. This isn't really relevant... And it's old.
Naturally you would say that, though, because you believe in your god. Other people who believed in different gods would say the same thing, so really anybody could be right.
This is not necessarily making fun of anyone's beliefs, it is simply pointing out the nature of some religons in general.
I took the OP to be merely comparing the two things, not necessarily making judgement calls.
Maybe God (or other similar figures in reliogns) are just a figment of thousands of people's imaginations, but at the same time, maybe every imaginary friend is a god that only one person knows about.
