Normal Atheists Welcome!
  •   _use_logic_ @geoleo24 Once I was an atheist, I looked back onto Christianity and saw how ignorant or, rather, privileged its believers are compared to other religions. Most others are humble and modest, the exceptions being Christianity and its denominations, and Islam with their extremist groups. (KKK and ISIS respectively) 3d
  •   geoleo24 So basically you came to a self realization that you didn't believe what was always taught to you 3d
  •   _use_logic_ @geoleo24 Exactly. It's funny, reading the Bible caused this realization. 3d
  •   _use_logic_ @geoleo24 As it does for most current atheists 3d
  •   geoleo24 Interesting, but you do have to take into consideration that the bible was written between 2&4 thousand years ago you can't expect all of that to stay relevant for millennia 3d
  •   _use_logic_ @geoleo24 Yes, I had taken into account the time in which it was written, but I was taught that as being truth. 3d
  •   geoleo24 Very well, at this point I'm just going to except that we have different beliefs. I'm also very glad I had the opportunity to have this conversation with you. I respect the way you think and you seem quite intelligent, just remember to stay open minded, someday I'd like to discuss what influenced your decision to renounce Christianity further. And though you may not, I still firmly believe that Jesus loves you. Until we meet again @_use_logic_ 3d
  •   _use_logic_ @geoleo24 As well my friend. 3d

stephhanie915 #mcm #carlsagan. Lawd give me the strength to remember this today and bite my tongue when slapped in the face with sheer ignorance. Nothing infuriates me more than condescending attitudes from pseudoscience peddlers. The great thing about #science is that it changes when necessary and admits when it's wrong. It's always evolving and trying to make sense of this crazy world. #happy #monday #weareallmadeofstarstuff but some of us have star stuff where our #brains should be #damnhippies 1w

  •   philosophizethis It wouldn't be difficult to make laws without the bible. That is insanity. @fuzzywuzzyflowerunicorn 1w
  •   philosophizethis Stealing and killing... What other relevant "sins" in the Bible is directly related to law? The Bible says outrageous things like killing women for not being virgins? And other petty things related to long hair and what you shouldn't eat.... Then you have like gluttony and infidelity..... Just to name some "bad stuff"... The laws that are in the Bible that you are drawing parallels to are those which do harm to people therefore doing harm to a society. That is not a product of the Bible but rather an effect of the social contract. @fuzzywuzzyflowerunicorn 1w
  •   fuzzywuzzyflowerunicorn Not anymore, no, they do what you have been doing and have created a loophole to where the Bible seems unnecessary and not needed in the slightest. However, the Bible has a sound doctrine (of which I shall not go in depth of, as of now) that tradition and some law does not. The Ten Commandments are certainly not there for nothing, ma'am. 1w
  •   fuzzywuzzyflowerunicorn @philosophizethis Killing women for not being virgins - as I can now see, you do not have a deeper knowledge of the Bible, so I will try to be brief. It seems that you are the one that cherry picks here, miss. Most of those women were adulterers and prostitutes. There were certain things you could not eat. There was a story, one I will make the assumption that you have not heard - and that was of food not eaten because it was offered to idols. They were simply keeping what they believed to be their morals, and they were. Gluttony, as in greediness. Infidelity stood for yet another thing of which you have seemed to misunderstand - and yet you will tell me that the Bible is not needed when it relates to problems that people today still face? 1w
  •   philosophizethis In my points, I try to practice brevity as well. There was no point in me going deeper with my first statements but you are right about these women being repeat offenders if you will. However, you are neglecting pretty heavy things in the bible that do not relate to what you are speaking about. Of course we will still face similar problems today but I still heavily stand by my statement that the Bible is not a device for moral guidance. I think at this point, we are beating a dead horse. I have read the Bible and I believe it to be a misogynistic manipulative piece of literature that needs not be compared to society today. You might might see similarities in today's society such as in the Bible but that doesn't mean it will always stand. I truly believe that eventually the Bible will be nothing more than something people find in history museums. We will move past religion entirely and we will be just. @fuzzywuzzyflowerunicorn 1w
  •   fuzzywuzzyflowerunicorn @philosophizethis This has exactly proved the problem. Moreover - I thank you for your time. Also, I am very well aware of what you say I am "neglecting," however, it appears as if I have slightly more knowledge of the Bible - and if I may, I suggest that you read it as well. Good day. 1w
  •   philosophizethis Thank your for your time as well. Your insight has proven useful in my thinking, even if I don't seem like it in my arguments. You most certainly do have more knowledge of the Bible. I have read it, but not the way you have. I have trouble with setting aside my biases toward that book.... It isn't used by people in the right way. I do agree that there are good lessons to be taken from it.... But those who grip so tightly to it and don't think critically, are not progressive. Something controversial like what marriage is has hindered people for so long because of that book. So in some ways, that book can be hindering progress. There are "good" and "bad" ways to use the Bible. Again, thanks very much! @fuzzywuzzyflowerunicorn 1w
  •   fuzzywuzzyflowerunicorn @philosophizethis I agree. No, no, thank you! 1w

  •   _use_logic_ @assassin0o0 Are you a citizen of the United States? Just a simple question. 2w
  •   _use_logic_ @assassin0o0 If so, then you understand that there are people who think this country was established on Christian values, right? It really disappoints me that some individuals are so dense to think that a country that clearly states to be secular is supposed to cater to one religion among countless others. Those same people try to push religion down others' throats. I don't have to read the Bible to see all the bullshit that comes with it (btw I HAVE read the Bible, hence why I'm an atheist.) Only the ignorant would deny the evidence that science brings to prove evolution. May I ask, what evidence proves that your holy book is the absolute, undeniable truth? 2w
  •   cl_gym_life I wish you all would shutup 2w
  •   cl_gym_life Cuz both sides have pushy views n opinions 2w
  •   _use_logic_ @cl_gym_life Okay, well I can see your point. I respect others' views, but when someone goes and "pushes" first, I WILL push back. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. (I know, that was just pitiful) 2w
  •   cl_gym_life Fair enough. I can't say I'm different 2w
  •   bend.over.ill.drive.ya I have a Bible...I use it as a doorstop. 2w
