i know there's loads of bobs on here and it was creepy and someone got accused of being Stalin (whats up with that, religous nuts) but i'm a girl and my names bobbi so i just kinda had to comment. well here it is: Religion sucks. ...that was it
2009-12-05 03:30:40
Something has gone wrong in your life somewhere Bob and I feel sorry for you. You can continue to look for the truth but once you have found it you will not like what you find. Religion proves science not the other way around, science is constantly changing because what was once though true has infact been false, which shows that science is not always right. If you continue to search for evidence against Christanity that is what you will find. You say that Christians are closed-minded yet many scientists are also Christians. If you can accept science as truth then why can you not accept Christianity, evolution has many more flaws.

When I was a kid I used to believe in Santa Claus. One day I found out He wasn't real. Someone had made him up. Christmas always seemed less special after that but I accepted it and moved on to other things. God is just Santa Claus for adults. Now there's nothing wrong with believing in Santa, or God for that matter, but at least have the guts to call a spade a spade instead of this "I'm right, I'm right" nonsense and accept that you just made a choice in what you believe and that not everyone else share you're view. It's OK to have different opinions, and opinions are all that they are. It's people who make religion the vulgar mess that it is.

It says God created the world in 6 days?But there are people who believe in evilution. Why can't they both be one in the same.No one knows how long a day is to God.One day could be 7 million years,who knows?And God couldn't be male or female,black or white.God,I think,is a pure being of pure light.When he says we were created in his image he means our souls,our inner being was created in his image.In that we are like him.

I agree, this secular world world is on a path from which their is little hope of returning, Jesus said "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Light, no one comes to the father except through me"

You both can argue this out until you die of old age, as many have already done. My only advice is to choose wisely, when the time comes, there are no second chances.

when i was a kid i would ask the librarians at my school if i left the bible out would they file it in fiction or not. they never answered me.

The problem is that as a prerequisite, religions need people to believe that they are true, which is in the realm of scientific reason. I guess it's just impossible NOT to have them bicker...
2008-11-11 09:31:25
I'm an atheist and I do believe there is value in religion. I see so many people out there bashing religion because it is so messed up at the level of reason and logic. And I do agree, many religions don't make sense at the level sound logic and reasoning, but for me, I always found been more comfortable leaving them alone. Why? because I believe that having religion exist in our society (and in many societies in the past) is of huge moral social and polictical value. Uniting people under a belief, whether the belief is real or not is an extremely powerful way of maintaining moral and social order. Religion has the ability to make "good" people. The impartiality of scientific reasoning does not allow it to do this. Religion has the ability to bring people together, which allows for more efficient operation of societal systems, espeically at times of war or crisis. Science cannot do this. I'm arguing from a purely social and moral perspective and therein lies the difference between science and religion. Science is uncontested in the realm of logic, truth and reason. (good) Religions are uncontested in the realm of moral and social reason... The two are not mutually exclusive, but are different enough to induce quarrelling. Of course the best scientific statements will always come from the logical perspective and the best religious statements will always come from a moral perspective. In my humble opinion, both factions should stay where they friggin work the best and not bicker so much. But I guess that's just wishful thinking...

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic.
2008-06-12 16:26:41
Anyway, before 1859, belief in god was the norm. There was no better, or indeed other, explanation for the world. But now there is, so there should be no excuse. There was a time when religion was science, attempting to explain the universe. That time is hundreds of years gone. Move on.

It is he who sits above the circle of the earth - Isaiah 40:22. As far as God telling you who He is, Read the 1st Chapter of Romans. Also, the Bible says you cannot come to God without faith. Faith is based on enough facts to give you a choice - God will not 'show' Himself to you for that would make it impossible for you to have Faith in Him. I don't know who made you so angry but if you will seek God, His promise is that you will find Him. Mahatma Ghandi said that he would become a Christian if it were not for Christians...he will stand before God one day and the only question that will be asked is if we accepted Jesus' payment for our sins or not. Your choice. No one can make it for you.

Psst: see that "show this post" link? Well, that... get this- shows the post. My own posts won't make much sense unless you see what I'm replying to.

Because for most of our lives atheists (not god haters - only the insane or deluded can feel strong emotions about imaginary beings) have been harassed by 'used car salesmen' such as those that are posting here, telling us we must purchase their particularly crappy, cross-branded vehicle we neither want nor feel we need; not to mention that at times over centuries past, people like us have risked being murdered at the hands of these salesmen for choosing either not to drive at all, or for daring to check out the cars available at the other dealerships around town...

Lots of hidden posts no longer available and I wanted to see some of the apparently retarded ones :( Way to go whichever Bob it is.

Actually, saying that you commit the equivocation fallacy is being far too generous. People who commit the equivocation fallacy simply confuse the REAL different meanings of a word. I don't know of any name for what you're doing, which is basically to make up meanings.
2008-04-09 00:29:48
How about first you learn what the words you want to use mean, and THEN try to use them in a way that fits their definition? About the only definition you got correct was "person". Religion is a set of beliefs a group of people have based on FAITH that involves the supernatural. It often includes rituals, customs, stories, etc. Humanism is NOT a religion, it is an ethical philosophy completely separate from religion. Religious people can and often are humanists. Humanism does NOT in any way shape or form mean that people are their own gods. That is just complete and utter bullshit you or someone else fabricated on the spot. Also, humans ARE apes, and even creationist taxonomists before Darwin classified humans as such. Besides, evolution is based on an overwhelming amount of evidences from a wide variety of scientific fields which all converge and make the probability that evolution is wrong nearly 0. And if you worship jesus, then you are, by definition, a christian and that constitutes a religion. You can babble all you want and try to redefine things to suit your purposes, but frankly it's just transparent bullshit and you're committing the equivocation fallacy.
2008-04-09 00:22:38
Religion is a waste of man's time and a waste of God's time...
2008-04-09 00:20:31
Bob1 you are a very religious person. Your religion is called Humanism. You are your own God. If it feels good do it. We come from apes ect. Those are your beliefs. I hate religion too. That is why I came to Christ.

ROUND/CIRCLE. Pancakes are round/circles. The earth is spherical. What you mentioned does not support your argument, it supports ours. Take the fact that he said "circle" (chuwg) instead of ball (duwr) along with the fact that other verses talk about being able to see the whole world from the tops of mountains or from heaven, and it is clear that the people writing the bible thought the earth was flat. Even after it had already been shown to be a sphere. Even Aristotle (at around 350 BC) knew the earth was a sphere.
2008-04-08 23:00:14
"old book written and assembled by people who believed the world was flat"---In case anyone wants to know the truth on this matter, look up: Isaiah 40:22. Written thousands of years before "scientists" discovered the earth was round. If the Bible was not inspired, then how did this prophet know? Please stop blowing you fluff around about how much smarter you are then the ancient prophets.

sean, your post makes no sense at all, and that fact that you wrote it and (I presume) proofread it before clicking the send button says a lot about you. As a Christian, you should know -- better than I -- that Christianity is based on the premise of Christians *HAVING FAITH* that the stories in the bible are true, since there is no hard evidence to *PROVE* the issue either way. I guess that this what, in your mind, is supposed to be Christian 'critical thinking.' Don't worry, I have faith that eventually you'll get exactly what you deserve for blindly believing instead of seeking for the truth, since after all, according to YOUR bible, Jesus *praised* Thomas for doubting what the other apostles had taken as truth, until Thomas had proof enough for himself (by sticking his finger into Jesus' wounded body) of Jesus' resurrection.

I believe that religion, generally speaking, has been a curse to mankind — that its modest and greatly overestimated services on the ethical side have been more than overcome by the damage it has done to clear and honest thinking. ~ H. L. Mencken........ I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires. ~ Susan B. Anthony

"For thirty five years of my life I was, in the proper acceptation of the word, nihilist, a man who believed in nothing. Five years ago my faith came to me. I believed in the doctrine of Jesus Christ and my whole life underwent a sudden transformation. Life and death ceased to be evil. Instead of despair, I tasted joy and happiness that death could not take away." -- Leo Tolstoy, the great genius of Russian letters

"The holy one... The divine man...The human mind, no matter how far it may advance in every other department, will never transcend the height and moral culture of Christianity as it shines and glows in the gospels." - comments made about Jesus and Christianity by Goethe, German writer and scientist, 1749-1832
2008-02-23 11:34:26
Wow, gee. A dictionary-maker was religious. I guess I'm going to convert to christianity now. Lotty, could you tell me how many names you post under? you are OBVIOUSLY Lotty, Jonny, and Sue W. I wouldn't be surprised if you're also Sean and a couple of others. Also, could I ask you why you're doing this? Do you think that such blatant dishonest behavior will lead to more people being christian or something? I thought as a christian you weren't supposed to do stuff like that.

"In praise of Thy goodness I must confess that Thou didst try with all Thy means to draw me to Thee. Sometimes it pleased Thee to let me feel the heavy hand of Thy displeasure and to humiliate my proud heart by manifold castigations. Sickness and misfortune didst Thou send upon me to turn my thoughts to my errantries. - One thing, only, O Father, do I ask: cease not to labor for my betterment. In whatsoever manner it be, let me turn to Thee and become fruitful in good works." - Ludwig van Beethoven as documented by Kerst and Krehbiel in "Beethoven: The Man And The Artist, As Revealed In His Own Words," p. 101, 104-106.

"In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government, ought to be instructed. . . . No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people. . . ." - Noah Webster, American lexicographer

Oh please. You're comparing the mindless pasting of quotes I criticized you of doing to the use of sources to supplement the comments I made?

"After six years given to the impartial investigation of Christianity as to its truth or falsity, I have come to the deliberate conclusion that Jesus Christ was the Messiah of the Jews, the Savior of the world and my own personal Redeemer." -- General Lew Wallace, one-time atheist, military general and literary genius, who along with Robert Ingersoll agreed together they would write a book that would forever destroy the myth of Christianity. Mr. Wallace studied for two years in the leading libraries of Europe and America for information to destroy Christianity. While writing the second chapter of his book, he suddenly found himself on his knees, crying out, "My Lord and my God." The evidence was overwhelmingly conclusive. Later, Wallace wrote "Ben Hur" - one of the greatest Christian novels.

"As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene....No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word.

Mind you, don't be fooled by wording. Scientists are people too, and will often use words carelessly. there are many "theories" in science which are NOT scientific theories. For example, "string theory" and "m theory" are most definitely NOT scientific theories. However, Evolution by natural selection IS a theory, and it is actually one of the most supported scientific theories in all of science.
2008-02-16 05:33:52
we have more evidence that the stories in the bible are true, then you have evidence that they arent.
2008-02-16 05:30:05

"Vote early and vote often" in Chicago refers to the idea that politics have interfered with proper voting practices, especially in regards to mob influence, and there's some controversy still as to whether or not Kennedy actually won Chicago , thus winning Illinois, and the Presidency back in 1960 (so it isn't just the republicans that play dirty politics, kids).

Wrong. Einstein did NOT believe in a creator. I guess you didn't fully understand what he said. Spinoza's god- "That is, god cannot be something outside nature that controls it, but must necessarily be part of it. According to Spinoza, God IS nature."... what Einstein was basically saying is that he believes in nature and wants to be a scientist. Don't believe me? look up the definition of spinoza's god yourself. Einstein himself said that's what he believed in.
2008-02-09 14:40:23
You miss the point, Bob. Unlike you, Einstein did believe in God the creator. He may not have believed that a God big enough to create all this could have anything to do with a mere man personally, but he sure didn't believe in your stupid idea that this could have just happened out of nothing. Clearly there was a designer, as in seeing a Rolex we know there was a watch maker.

The only proof that existed, exists and will ever exist is your own perception. And that is loaded with interpretation. Thankfully, there are a few things in life which you just cannot question: When you die, the body is not functional any more. When there is pain, you take your hand from the hot plate.

"I am constantly looking for the truth, but I have standards." If you really want to find the truth then you have to be ready to question *everything*, and I mean *everything*. "What some old book written and assembled by people who believed the world was flat and had no idea of what caused disease does not qualify as sufficient enough evidence for me to believe in ANYTHING." They gave up their beliefs because of proof. The proof was created by people questioning the standards. When will you question yours?

You know, "Bob" is a pretty common name. I KNOW I'm not the only one using it. In fact, I only uploaded 3 of those pictures. I have no idea who uploaded the rest. I've also seen quite a few other comments by "bob" who I didn't write. Plus, I do like to read and vote on comments. Notice that this picture has about 13 votes. Unlike the other thread in which you posted your ridiculously wild accusation (omg! someone with a VERY common name voted a lot! therefore, they are like stalin!!! OMG!!!), where the obvious cheating was being done by the religious wingnuts, the votes on the comments in this thread look fairly realistic (at least as of now). Don't come make a fool of yourself without any actual evidence.
2008-01-17 21:18:51
Anyone notice that Bob has voted over 500 times!?! There aren't even that many pictures on Pizdaus. For someone who claims to seek honest and unbiased truth he apparently doesn't mind tipping the scales behind the scenes for his purposes. Like Stalin, Mao, Marx and other atheists, twist the facts to support their sick little doctrines, then have the guts to claim that Christians are ignorant and blind. Not blind to your ways, Bobby.

2008-01-16 12:55:57
I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it. (Albert Einstein, 1954) I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings. (Albert Einstein)
2008-01-16 12:20:21
I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details. --Albert Einstein

2008-01-16 06:28:32
Oh you poor religious saps, it's always a struggle for you people, trying to prove what's not real. Searching for evidence to prove your ridiculous fantasy everywhere you turn. Meanwhile, atheists everywhere are at ease because our view of life and the universe is actually based on facts and research while yours try to make up facts around a crazy idea.
2008-01-16 00:41:40
You need to go to school. Scientific theories are the as high as you can possibly get in science. For your idea to be called a theory, it has to have passed rigorous testing time after time by different scientists all over the world, it has to make UNIQUE predictions that are constantly being verified, and which the scientific community as a whole consider a fact. Technically, theories are not the exact same things as facts, but for the layperson, a scientific theory IS a fact (or it should be, were not laypeople utterly ignorant of the workings of science and got hung up on a single word describing a complex idea).
2008-01-16 00:33:34
The only people who pray to jesus for him to reveal himself to them are people who ALREADY believe in him, and who will interpret any random coincidence as jesus revealing himself to them. Having said that, I DO want any god(s) to reveal themselves if they are real, and when I was a christian I did ask jesus to reveal himself (so yes, a decade ago I was where YOU are). He never did. Or if he did, he did it in a way which is exactly consistent with the preposition that he does NOT exist. About me doing my own research about god... I do. To my awareness, I haven't parroted anyone. You are welcome to try and argue otherwise though. Just post the link where I it from. Again, reading the new testament is useless. At most, all I will find are stories which I would LIKE to be true, not stories which actually are true. Also, about science not theorized/proven the spiritual realm... that's because anything that science examines IS natural by definition. Pretty much everything science HAS looked at actually was at one point the realm of the spiritual. The origin and workings of diseases, the mind, the universe, weather, life, and probability are just a few examples of what has become science instead of religion. As for ghosts, I don't care what most people believe in. Ghosts are not just inherently self-contradictory and completely contrary to the laws of the universe and of what we know about people's minds and personalities, but so far every single so called "ghost" has had a perfectly reasonable scientific explanation that doesn't involve undead people.
2008-01-15 23:24:30
is this a religious forum or is this about pictures? Anyone too much time ?
2008-01-15 22:26:18
Mmmm..They call them the theory...BECAUSE they are true. Who needs to go back to school? Or apparently you've been to the wrong school.
2008-01-15 22:21:41

@uncle Sam Hahaha, God I hope you're kidding.You must be american. You think being in US army and fighting in Iraq will get you in heaven? You actually think any god would approve of invading a country only to enrich your top politicians and to secure you're extremely wastefull way of life? Hahaha, I don't believe in the christian, islamic or jewish god but if an allmighty one exists and it is sending people to an heaven or hell, everybody involved in that dump-ass, sure to lose war will burn for eternity
2008-01-15 19:03:46
they call it the theory of this or that because they are not so egotistical to announce that they hold the definitive answer. which is where science has strength - its willingness to look at facts that keep popping up and to incorporate these into the old theories, and to make them better. im not saying that everyone who believes in the bible and god is wrong, but i think they are wrong to not believe at leats some aspects of science, because science has evolved to keep up with the facts, whereas the bible has not. that said, i respect a persons right to believe in whatever they do, because i think belief is important. if a dying person wants to believe they're going to heaven, who am i to argue. and if by saying that i dont believe in heaven, i go to hell, then so be it. i'll be dead when im proved wrong. and just in case theres any confusion in my stance, i agree wholeheartedly with bob.
2008-01-15 18:31:31
Religion = Myth It is good...
2008-01-15 16:43:34
Actually, the labeling isn't that excellent, since '/' means or, and or means 'one of', not necessarily 'both of'. So you could've written anything else (to pair with religion), the books under this section don't need to belong to both topics, they colud belong to one of them (and still, the description would be ture), therefore this doesn't mean religion=myth. I think.
2008-01-15 15:20:23
Bob, You are where I was a decade ago... searching for the truth and meaning of life. You said "If there is a god, he is welcome to come here and tell me himself. I am not going to take some random person's word for it." I'm glad you won't take some random person's word for it, nor do you need to. Let me suggest this; if you really want to know, pray and ask Jesus to reveal himself to you. I can tell you honestly if you are earnest about it (not playing a game or being flip about it) He will leave no doubt with you that he is real and loves you. Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7-7 I know that I cannot argue you into a belief in God, nor will I... not my job. I would ask that if you are going to argue against it that you actually do your own research and not be lazy Googling someone else's opinions about the subject... in short, read the new testament, ask God to reveal Himself to you and see what happens. Remember, science (which is good) hasn't proven nor theorized about the spiritual realm. Most people believe in ghosts but can't explain it through science. What do you have to lose?

You know what they say, there is a grain of truth in everything. (or did I just make that up? Either way, it's true lol)
2008-01-15 14:22:22
Look who's getting more votes for all intents and purposes! Sorry, but some religions are just pure farce. On the other hand, there are parts of religions that are quite true.
2008-01-15 13:22:56
Religion is for people who can't deal with facts. I am completely in agreement with Bob here. All this 'eternity' person has done is pose questions and 'what-ifs' that he can't even answer himself.
2008-01-15 12:50:53
Gamble with forever? In what way? There are an INFINITE number of possibilities. Maybe there is some god out there who hates people who believe in things without evidence, and you're going to hell while I'm not. What IF that's true? Are you willing to gamble with that? eh? (point is, it's absolutely ridiculous to gamble about things which you don't really have reasons to believe exist. You said you're satisfied with the "evidence". Well, what evidence?)
2008-01-15 12:41:53
I am totally satisfied that the evidence certainly points to life after death. Are you willing to gamble with forever.......? You need to KNOW. What IF this life is just a breath and the "real" deal begins when the spirit leaves the body? At that point it will not matter at all what we thought it was gonna be like, it will be what it is.
2008-01-15 11:51:14
I agree with question 1. However, you should listen to your own advise. Question 2 is a loaded question. Have you ever considered that maybe there ISN'T an eternal life after this one? After all, there is absolutely 0 reason to believe that there is, besides our wishing it to be true (and other people wishing it to be true as well).
2008-01-15 11:46:15
At some point, is it worth asking yourself, "Am I interested in the truth enough to be willing to forsake my own beloved opinion?" "How will I judge myself when I find myself sailing into the eternity we all wonder about?" "Am I totally at peace with where I am at today?" Truth can handle all of your questions and it is worth the searching for it. It is beautiful. It is eternal.

Given up? given up what? I am constantly looking for the truth, but I have standards. What some old book written and assembled by people who believed the world was flat and had no idea of what caused disease does not qualify as sufficient enough evidence for me to believe in ANYTHING. Skepticism is NOT a religion. We do not worship anything, we do not have any rituals, we do not have faith, we don't have anything in common with religion. If there is a god, he is welcome to come here and tell me himself. I am not going to take some random person's word for it. If you disagree that all you will ever find are stories, then please, give me actual hard evidence that god exists or whatever it is you believe.
2008-01-15 11:27:05
"all you will ever find are stories" ** You have given up, and urge others to do likewise. Religion is man's belief in spiritual things. Your religion is skepticism. That the answers are too far out of reach. That if there is a God, He will not help, so why try. You have your beliefs, and they are not true.
2008-01-15 11:19:18
They call them the theory of evolution, the theory of relativity, the chromosomal theory of inheritance, the theory of gravity, the germ theory of disease, atomic theory, quantum theory, and so on BECAUSE they are true. You seriously need to go to school, because you don't even know the basic terminology of science. There is no such thing as "the fact of..." in science. A theory is as high a standard as an explanation can possibly get in science. As for the bible not being a theory, you're right. It's not science. However, it is far from the factual portrayal of life. Just search "errors in the bible", and you will be overwhelmed by all the KNOWN errors in the bible. Of course, those are all completely disregarding the fact that talking bushes, walking on water, or jesus zombees are simply not possible in the first place.
2008-01-15 11:14:53
Hey, you're right! Here's a thought: Why don't you sign up for the army and go to Iraq? You get killed doing God's work and presto, you're in heaven! You know you want it, don't be shy... Are you doubting the lord's word?! You slimy atheist...
2008-01-15 11:13:04
The onus is not on me to disprove ANYTHING. The onus is on you to prove that zombees (people who died and were revived) are even possible, or that snakes/donkeys/bushes can talk, or that people can fly magical horses to heaven, etc. etc. etc. Also, science's ability to change is what makes it great. We know humans are fallible, and so we do not simply DECLARE that something is true and stick to it no matter what. The proof is in the pudding- Tell me, what has religion EVER contributed in regards to actual knowledge? Pretty much all of the ideas which religion came up with have turned out to be wrong, and science proved them wrong. Science, on the other hand, has greatly increased our lifetimes by coming up with cures for diseases and whatnot, has given us electricity and air conditioning, has allowed us to put a man on the moon, has allowed us to peer into the very essence of matter itself, and has allowed us to appreciate the true grandeur and beauty of the amazing universe we live in. None of what you are doing right now (sitting in a computer, looking at what people probably thousands of miles have done, or are saying) would have been possible if humans only looked for answers by simply looking into religion.
2008-01-15 11:03:50
I have stated my religion? What in the world are you talking about? And what do you mean "what's the difference"? Don't you care whether what you believe is true actually is?
2008-01-15 10:32:08
By your name, I can see you are far from the "retard" class.
2008-01-15 10:21:09
Well until you and anyone else can disprove that Book, The Bible than I would certainly reconsider the truth which you hold onto. Since most science is based upon theories and testing and formulas that at any moment can change I would prefer to hold on to a history book which they have no problem finding the proof for. Wonder why they call it the Theory of evolution and the Theory of relativity, probably because they theory is just that a theory based upon what facts. The Bible is not the Theory of the Bible it is the Factual portrayal of life.

Has the photo taker spent as much time thinking about eternity as he spent focusing the photo?
2008-01-15 09:45:19
And so you have stated your religion, Bob. What is the difference?
2008-01-15 09:18:35
Religion is for retards
2008-01-15 08:17:57
What do you hold as truth? Well, the truth. You can search all you want for truth in religion, but all you will ever find are stories which you end up believing only because you would LIKE to be true, not because they actually ARE true.

You don't go to a library or bookstore very often, do you? It's called the Dewey Decimal System.
