Really? They both seem pretty obvious to me...

In the first one is a "You are here" map, like you would find in a mall or something, to show you exactly where in the mall you are. It's saying that god exists inside someone's imagination.

The second one is just making fun of the fact that Creation scientists are given the task of proving Creationism using the very methods that disprove it. And I thought the test tube full of faith part was kind of funny.

Sorry, there is no accepted "theory of gravity" at the moment. What we have for gravity is laws. Laws predict what will happen, theories explain how.

Just a protip, any poster made by a /b/tard is going to be innacurate.

Wait, here's a better way to say it, because the original way made me sound like a retard.


Laws do predict what happened,

but Gravitational Theory is a summary of all Knowledge (including Laws) of Gravity.

Yes there are theories of gravity, but in general none of them work on the macro and micro scales and therefore are incorrect. The proper title is "Laws of gravitation"

Then please simply report the derailment, do not further it with this type of comment. Our discussion was at least relevant to the topic at hand.

Also, breaking the rule you are currently reporting is a good way to piss off a mod and get a ban because a warning isn't necessary if you already know the rule.

And another one of a typical astrology believer:

(http://cectic.com/comics/145.png)

The belief that more crimes are committed during the full moon is not an astrology belief. It is possibly an urban legend but based on the fact that many vertebrates have monthly cycles controlled by the phases of the moon. In fact the correlation is so strong that deer hunters time their hunts according to the moon's phases so that the bucks will be rutting and more likely to be called in.

28 day moon cycle, 28 day menstrual cycle. Odd that an external stimuli might effect our patterns of behavior in some subconscious way. (doesn't even bother to extend this to the day night cycle that completely controls modern life for no reason considering electric lights can illuminate everything we need)

And another one of a typical astrology believer:

(http://cectic.com/comics/145.png)

The belief that more crimes are committed during the full moon is not an astrology belief. It is possibly an urban legend but based on the fact that many vertebrates have monthly cycles controlled by the phases of the moon. In fact the correlation is so strong that deer hunters time their hunts according to the moon's phases so that the bucks will be rutting and more likely to be called in.

28 day moon cycle, 28 day menstrual cycle. Odd that an external stimuli might effect our patterns of behavior in some subconscious way. (doesn't even bother to extend this to the day night cycle that completely controls modern life for no reason considering electric lights can illuminate everything we need)

Ok? Want to move on to the deer rut cycle. Day night cycle. Choral spawning at the exact same moon phase. The list goes on. Believing organisms are effected by highly visible cycles is not the same as astrology.

Also, read farther down the article where he admits he does not know, says most research shows the average menstrual cycle studies have shown is closer to 29 days and some change, and that multiple animal species have menstruation and mating linked to moon cycles. This is especially important in animals that release their gametes into a liquid to be fertilized. (liquids such as water or air in the case of pollens)

The articles ends in a giant "idk it might"

Yes there are theories of gravity, but in general none of them work on the macro and micro scales and therefore are incorrect. The proper title is "Laws of gravitation"

What I meant was that the typical astrology believer will only take positive evidence into consideration and brush off predictions that don't fit. Also, the menstrual cycles, coral spawning and stuff may be true, but is there any evidence that violent crime rates rise with the full moon?

also, here's another one.

Doesn't Matthew clearly quote Jesus (I'm not entirely convinced that Jesus was even literate.  Hence the need for scribes and a complete lack of documentation for posterity of the alleged word of God, but that's a different discussion.) during the Sermon on the Mount as telling people they should have a pacifistic point-of-view?  If you call yourself a Christian, then it should only be fair for others to assume that you follow the words of Christ.  To deny a pacifistic lifestyle is to deny Jesus' teachings.  To deny Jesus' teachings is to deny Christianity.  Are you prepared to deny these things?

Title: Re: Random Political Comic thread
Post by: Areweonfiya on January 16, 2010, 11:53:43 AM
From PacifistChristian.org-

1. How can you insist that Christians are supposed to be pacifists when the Bible provides examples of men and women of faith who have participated in wars and killed their enemies, even in service to God?
[A frequently heard objection to pacifist Christianity is that since the Old Testament contains examples of believers in God (Abraham, Deborah, David, etc.) who have fought in battles and waged wars and still received approval from God, then it seems reasonable that Christians also can participate in ?just wars? and remain in God?s will.]

Before the time of Jesus, God allowed the taking of an enemy?s life, as indicated in both the Noahic and Mosaic Covenants. God told Noah that ?whoever sheds man?s blood, by man his blood shall be shed? (Gen. 9:1-17). In the Mosaic Covenant, the people of Israel were given rules for warfare (Deut. 20). Thus, in the Old Testament era the people of God who abided by these regulations were counted as faithful and blameless before God.

But these instructions found in earlier covenants were not God?s final word on the subject of killing in wars. Both the law and the prophets spoke of the day when God would send a person greater than Moses (Deut. 18: 15-19) who would establish a New Covenant (Jer. 31:31) that would replace the Old, or Mosaic, Covenant. Both these and many other prophecies were fulfilled by Jesus Christ.

God?s ultimate view on participation in warfare is found in the words and life of Jesus, who as God in the flesh, reveals the true expression of God?s nature (Heb. 1:3). Therefore, Jesus? New Covenant position on this issue should determine the stance that all Christians must take. The words of Jesus are, ?You have heard that it was said ?You shall love your neighbor? and hate your enemy. But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you,? (Mt. 5:43-44).

Jesus clearly said that his followers are to love everyone, even their enemies. The love for an enemy was best demonstrated by Jesus, who refused to fight against his enemies (Matt. 26:51-53, John 18:36), patiently endured his undeserved sufferings, and totally forgave those responsible for his death. This is why Christians should not kill in war.

Post by: Areweonfiya on January 16, 2010, 11:56:56 AM
Also, for teh lulz,

5. How would Pacifist Christians respond to the current problem of suicide bombers?

[Many people believe that the only way to deal with violence is to ?fight fire with fire? and that a massive show of military force is the only way to react towards heinous acts such as suicide bombings.]

Those who hold this position often think that pacifist Christianity provides no ?practical? response towards terrorist bombers. Since the events of 9/11, Americans are very aware of the dangers posed by radical political and religious extremists, especially the suicide bombers. Since these terrorists are prepared to die in their attempts to kill as many people as possible, it has been argued that the only ?realistic? way to deal with them is to either capture and incarcerate them for life or kill them before they carry out their murders.

Can pacifist Christians do anything to curtail these suicide bombers? Is there a nonviolent response that they can carry out?

Many suicide bombers are guided by false religious beliefs that teach that they are pleasing God by killing the ?infidels? and that they will be rewarded with eternity in paradise by forfeiting their own lives as they kill others.

Pacifist Christians can counteract these false teachings by boldly proclaiming the good news of Jesus: that though God?s righteousness has judged all humans as worthy of eternal punishment because of their sins and unbelief, forgiveness of sins and a new life have been made possible through the death and resurrection of the Messiah, Jesus. Through the Holy Spirit and the New Testament, Jesus now commands everyone to love all people, including their enemies.

If we truly recognize Jesus as the Messiah and Son of God, we must take his commandment very seriously and from this time forth cease to participate in the murder of our personal or national enemies. Jesus has called all believers in the one true God to show love towards one another and stop participating in all killings, even those sanctioned by governments. If necessary, we are commanded to lay down our own lives, but only in order to save others. This is this sort of love and faith that truly pleases God.

the bible specifies it pretty well, actually.

"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you."
    ?Luke 6:27-31. NIV

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you."

This section as a whole (Luke 6:27-36) (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%206:27-36&version=NLT) is about Jesus teaching compassion, not pacifism.

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you."
    ?Matthew 5:38-42, NIV

This scripture if you will actually look at the bible is title "Jesus Teaches about Revenge" what Jesus is saying here is that we shouldn't seek revenge, we should learn to forgive and pray for those that do you wrong. Jesus is not saying you should lay down and take a beating or in other words he's not saying you as a Christian should be a pacifist.

Well good, because neither was the preacherwoman.

That's also an interesting thing about it. Never once in the bible does it say anything about romantic relationships between men being wrong or immoral, it's just the sex bits that are wrong. Which is ludicrous, because the only thing the verse you're referring to brands an abomination is "lying with a man as you lay with a woman", which is physically impossible to all but a few men. Sounding is bad, but anal sex is NOT "lying as you lay with a woman", if we should also believe what the bible teaches us about having non-reproductive sex. Sure, non-reproductive sex is also forbidden, which destroys whatever argument I had going with this post and all, but technically, having sex with a man is not, like eating crayfish, an "abomination". Unless your partner has a very stretchable phallus.

I was raised in a catholic home and school, but my parents didn't baptize me. They were fairly religiously moderate as well. They showed me rather than indoctrinating me, and let me make my own decision.

Due to this, I have a fairly detailed knowledge of the Catholic/Protestant faiths.

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fads_and_trends
A fad is a practice or interest followed for a time with exaggerated zeal. The nature of fad is individual. It could be called as an individual/individual society's over interest in some thing which is considered to have consist of some virtue i.e. fad diet, exercise etc. The benefit of something considered as fad may not have been scientifically verified or it may lack the rational proof.

Sound pretty close to it.

In the end, all you are doing is taking scripture out of context and twisting it to fit what ever point you are trying to make.

I'm sorry, I thought this was common practice in your religion. If I have offended you by twisting it the wrong way, I sincerely apologise.

Nope, it's not. And I find it hard to believe your apology is sincere.

I am confused. Why would you assume I am lying? That's a pretty big accusation from somebody whose religion equates it with stealing, murder, or worse yet, using the Lords name in vain. Also, are you sure it's not a common practice? Whenever I go to Sunday mass, the priest will quote the bible out of context just like I did there, to support the general purpose of the sermon.

I'm not catholic.

Where in the bible does it say to hate gays, again?

It doesn't. It calls homosexual sex an abomination.
What? Even lady love?

I'm not entirely convinced that Jesus was even literate.  Hence the need for scribes and a complete lack of documentation for posterity of the alleged word of God, but that's a different discussion.
Die in a fire, dude. How could have he read the scriptures in front of everyone in the sinagouge?

If I recall, Jesus only "read" a passage or two.  It could have been easily memorized and recited.  The odds are against the son of a carpenter living in the first few decades of the Julian calendar to know how to read or write.  However, the argument is purely academic.  Neither side has anything to cite but the highly dubious words of an ancient book that's been through many translations and has dozens of versions in English alone.  In the end I'm just playing the odds game and Christians simply don't want to think of their savior as illiterate.
Title: Re: Random Political Comic thread
Post by: Chris Spaghetti on January 21, 2010, 02:30:12 AM
To be honest I think he probably was literate (If he existed at all, which, again, I am prepared to accept) but it was probably self-taught and inspired by his visits with his father to the big city and the temple.

I say that because of the one story we have from his childhood where he was engaged with scriptural debate with the temple Rabbis. I imagine they were impressed with the boy's abilities so they decided to indulge him. I can't imagine the spritual leaders would have bothered wasting time with a simple country boy otherwise.

All Jewish men were literate because they had to attend the synagogue school. This was one of the main advantages of Jews under Roman rule.

Or because we won't get proper coverage and won't be able to see the doctor. Pick which one you think will happen and stick to it.

Maybe the people who are too sick to get health insurance will finally be able to go see a doctor about their condition.

Woah woah woah, slow down you communist.

That was an and not a by. Someone that takes up a minimum wage job and still collects welfare because the job does not support them takes up a job (keeping someone else jobless) and adds a drain by taking up welfare. I don't think I meant economy but still, meh.

I've always wondered that. What about the billions of people who were completely cut off from any form of Christianity, such as people living in the rainforests or in old australia, or even india. Did all those people go to Hell? No, most Christians would say it depends how good they lived their lives. But there is a problem with that; it's subjective. Adultery, murder, and stealing might be honored in other cultures, so how does God judge them? Maybe it would have been better if we never heard of Christianity, that way we might get a free ticket.

While I wish it were different, Parsifal does have a point.  The Supreme Court has ruled that Native Americans are allowed to drink peyote tea in their religious ceremonies, but nobody else can.  Becoming a "conscientious objector" to avoid being drafted is almost impossible unless you have a religion that forbids war.  Religion has its legal perks.

What parsifal is trying to say is not true, per se. That car would not be legal with all the animals/statuettes and such no matter the religion, as for the writing, it's the same to me as a bumper sticker. Also, a "honor killing" in Islam is still murder in America and the person who committed it would be tried, Muslim or not.

Well this is where it gets a bit controversial, and it goes back to my question from the thread when I asked if sacrifice-based societies should be allowed to practice their religion. The issue is quite difficult to handle. For example, imagine if the bible had said somthing like "every Christian must kill at least one person a week" (inb4 other references) what would the law do?

Lol, it's amazing the way religions can keep offering up God as both hero and villain at the same time, and never notice the contradiction.  It's like the idea of Jesus sacrificing himself on the cross to appease God and take the blame for original sin (Adam and Eve taking fruit).  What a martyr.  Then everyone forgets just a few minor details:

  • Adam and Eve never actually existed, so mankind didn't "owe" God a death at all.
  • If Jesus was the incarnation of God, was he was trying to appease...himself?
  • Why would anyone want to worship a monstrous dictator who demands a death as payment?

No, really.  The Y axis is labeled "Jobs lost", and the numbers shown are mostly in the negative.    Losing negative numbers of jobs would mean that jobs were gained (mathematically speaking, I know that doesn't make sense).  Obviously, we lost a lot of jobs in the recession, so I'm assuming that it's just some clunky double negative use.  Is that what the problem is here?  Technically, the Y axis should be labeled "Jobs"?

Yes, that's exactly it. There existed a negative quantity of jobs in America at the end of the Bush administration.

Sigh, the conservative party is a centre-right party in the UK, famous for privatising the rail networks and supportive of private schools with policies very similar to Obama's. In fact, Obama has openly criticised David Cameron (leader of the Conservatives) as a political 'lightweight'

To the left of the Tories (Conservatives) are parties like the Liberal Democrats, the Green party and the socialist party. Take your political spectrum then imagine Obama as slap-bang in the middle and you have an idea about the difference in American/British politics

1. How the hell would learning about a scientific theory be against your religion? You're only supporting my point here.
Perhaps believing the Big Bang Theory is against your religion, and that's your right. But how would merely learning about an alternate viewpoint be such anathema to you.

You're doing a better job of proving my point than I am.

3. Oh sure, you use the products and services that science produces. The actual scientific method, however, that essential process of rational inquiry that has provided more insight than any other human endeavor, remains lost to you (by your own choice). You do not place your trust in logic, reason, and science, because you have Faith. You trust the results of science, yet you do not trust science itself. You claim to be a modern citizen of the 21st century, but your mind is mired in Bronze Age mythology and ethics.

You maintain this fundamental logical disconnect by means of massive, all-pervading ignorance. As FES has seen, any evidence, no matter how well-reasoned or logical, is immediately discarded should it fail to hold up to the litmus paper of your personal dogma. So really, don't talk to me about science. It's clear that you do not (and never will) understand or accept it.

Last I checked, in America, you didn't have to study something if it was against your religion, the teacher would give you something else.
How do you figure? I remember not learning the "big bang theory" in 3rd grade cause of my faith.

Learning something in no way interferes with your religion nor does it violate it. At most they'll let kids out of controversial subjects at parents requests (say a 5th grade discussion on sexuality etc) if the parents would like to teach them instead.

Interestingly enough, lots of the less zealous Christians I know offer this explanation for that little quirk: Adam was the first human whom God created, genderless, in his own image. When he saw that humanity was incomplete, he created the woman Eve out of Adam's rib, and made minor modifications to Adam, making him the first man.

Genderless? In his own image?

Also:
Quote from: Genesis 1
26: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

Remember kids, it's your responsibility to share out god's resources for people who are suffering at the hands of that same god.

Lol, it's amazing the way religions can keep offering up God as both hero and villain at the same time, and never notice the contradiction.  It's like the idea of Jesus sacrificing himself on the cross to appease God and take the blame for original sin (Adam and Eve taking fruit).  What a martyr.  Then everyone forgets just a few minor details:

  • Adam and Eve never actually existed, so mankind didn't "owe" God a death at all.
  • If Jesus was the incarnation of God, was he was trying to appease...himself?
  • Why would anyone want to worship a monstrous dictator who demands a death as payment?

1. The Bible teaches that Adam and Eve did exist.
2. Yes.
3. Because He Himself made the death payment on our behalf.

a statement was made about your politcal party. I was trying to point out that it applied more directly to you than 9/11 (something I knew you would care deeply about). So when you said it didn't apply to you, I was trying say that it did in fact apply to you, but you brushed it off with an incorrect statement rather than addressing the point.

Also, I said DIRECTLY. Just because something happens in the US does not mean it applies to you directly. Do you think that Idaho patato taxes is something that applies to you directly?

You know, the funny thing about the laws of the bible is that surprisingly few of them apply today. The obvious ones like "don't kill each other over petty disputes and keep your paws from each other's stuff" would be there anyway, and the other ones, like the ones against homosexuality and other ones, were thought up in an age when getting attacked by sea monsters was a valid excuse for losing cargo from your ship.

Are you saying the bible doesn't ban these things?

Yes, except for the one in Ephesians. The New Testament trumps the old.

Refer to Paul the Apostle's epistle to the church in Rome, Chapter 7, verses 1-6 (NLT):

 "Now, dear brothers and sisters—you who are familiar with the law—don’t you know that the law applies only while a person is living? For example, when a woman marries, the law binds her to her husband as long as he is alive. But if he dies, the laws of marriage no longer apply to her. So while her husband is alive, she would be committing adultery if she married another man. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law and does not commit adultery when she remarries.

 So, my dear brothers and sisters, this is the point: You died to the power of the law when you died with Christ. And now you are united with the one who was raised from the dead. As a result, we can produce a harvest of good deeds for God. When we were controlled by our old nature, sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds, resulting in death. But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit."
Title: Re: Random Political Comic thread

By treating those laws as canon, Christians could actually be committing sin, if you can believe it. At the time Paul was writing, some Christians were still trying to follow the rituals and laws of the Old Covenant. While these things are not inherently wrong (indeed many of them are excellent ideas, such as placing latrines outside the army camp), Christians are not redeemed by the law, but by the undeserved grace of a benevolent God. By following the law for the purpose of redeeming ourselves, we cheapen the magnitude of Christ's sacrifice:

Galatians 5:2-4 (NIV):
 "Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace."

However, many Christians today claim that homosexuality is a sin and that God considers it wrong. When asked for the Scriptural foundation for this, they will invariably cite Leviticus 18:22.

1. Science is independently verifiable by anyone, via peer-reviewing and the publishing of experiment procedures along with the results. That's what makes it fucking science.

My point: at face value your argument fails. I mean you're taught many things in life by your parents, by your teachers etc., yet you believe them without question. Like you're taught by your teachers that, say, Chris Columbus discovered North America, how do you know? You weren't there, someone could have falsified history. The point of that: you choose to believe what you were taught. So like I said you argument at face value fails.

Or how about that you were taught that CD player reads a CD by pointing a laser on little pits that contain the data. How do you know that's true? Have you taken apart a CD player while it's running or put a CD under a microscope? No? You choose to believe what you were taught.

Okay, just no. I can tell you right now that this is not true for everyone, and it is especially not true for me. When I was a kid, whenever my parents laid down the law in our house, I would say "okay, but why?" It wasn't about being rebellious, I genuinely wanted a reason for the rules and boundaries I was to follow. Seeing as my parents were good enough debaters to convince an 8-year-old, I often followed those rules, too. When I was 5, I went to a Christian day-care, and was, inevitably, taught the tales from the bible as if they were scientific facts. As I was 5, I had nothing to base my standards on, and so I bought that. Just like Christopher Columbus sailed across the Atlantic, so had Jesus walked across a lake. But I still had questions. I once asked them what came first, Adam and Eve or the dinosaurs. When they couldn't answer a question as simple as that, and I had already seen fossils first-hand, the bible lost credibility, even to my as of yet not quite mature mind. In fact, I ended up getting yelled at for asking questions, which prompted even more scepticism.

Like you're taught by your teachers that, say, Chris Columbus discovered North America, how do you know? You weren't there, someone could have falsified history.

I actually know that he was not the first westerner there, because I've read about Vikings crossing the Atlantic in search of good timber and food. That's the thing about history, as well, any document sufficiently old has to be taken at least a bit seriously until you can prove otherwise, but we actually do read those documents with a critical eye. It's just that it's unlikely that the royal court of Castile just made up the tales of a man who crossed the the ocean in search of India, and found a new continent exactly where one appears to be in this day and age.

Or how about that you were taught that CD player reads a CD by pointing a laser on little pits that contain the data. How do you know that's true? Have you taken apart a CD player while it's running or put a CD under a microscope? No? You choose to believe what you were taught.

No, I've used CD's to experiment with laser interference, though. I've also taken apart CD players and used the lasers. Even so, that's not even the point. We know that all CD player manufacturers tell us that their CD players work that way. We know that the science textbooks tell us that CD players work that way. We know that the technology exists to do this. Why would we disbelieve something so mundane? Should we just believe that it's all a conspiracy because we can? Things like banning homosexuality(which the bible doesn't, it only disallows gettin' freaky) are illogical with the knowledge we have today, because we know that homosexuality never hurt anyone(excepting, of course, religious fundamentalists who stone homosexuals to death), and therefore, there's reason to disbelieve or question. You're talking about a set of moral laws from the bronze age. Do you know of ANYTHING else that we still have not improved upon that they had in the bronze age?

One last time: at face value you're argument fails.

I think your argument fails at face value.

Not really, I trust science because papers have been peer-reviewed by people who have taken the time to independantly evaluate them however, If, for example, I wanted to question the results of Richard Lemski's E.Coli evolution experiments http://myxo.css.msu.edu/ecoli/summdata.html I can trawl through his raw data, question the methodology, or even repeat the experiment myself if I was so bothered.

I believe that prisons should concentrate on rehabillitation rather than punishment because I have read the evidence that harsher prison sentences do not reduce re-offending rates. If you genuinely want to improve your understanding and knowledge you should ask questions and demand evidence from any authority figure.

Again, why? From a purely subjective point of view what is wrong with it? We have an aversion to incest because throughout history inbreeding almost always results in a mucked up baby - the consequences of a too-shallow gene pool.

Take the possibility of a baby away, what's wrong with two adults who happen to be related sleeping with one another?
Family gatherings get smaller and smaller.

From my experience, that's a blessing.

And yes, I meant objective.  I typed out '..objective, rather than subjective' and deleted the wrong half of the sentence.

Does marriage make incest moral?

Let me break this argument down. So if you have sex with someone closely related to you, you are as bad as a non specific group that is considered bad in your head because you are conforming to this stereotype?

Let me try.

If you symbolically consume the flesh and blood of another person you are no better than a christian so you my as well act like one.

(Incest is only wrong if we are evolving.)

That's certainly debatable.

Sexual reproduction is necessary to increase genetic diversity in the population. Due to fitness of genes we would become homozygous for most genes without mutation and selective forces that favor heterozygousness. (look into cheetah's lack of disease resistance and lack of genetic diversity for proof of concept here). If most people were fairly homogeneous genetically, there would be no difference between having sex with your cousin and having sex with a complete stranger.

You also have the problem of a young earth causing everyone to be within so many generations of each other. This would allow nearly no genetic diversity even if people were of different races.

Incest really would be insignificant without evolution. (at a more basic level, without mutations the driving force behind evolution incest would be completely innocent with no ill effects)

One of the main driving forces of speciation is to have an isolated population stay isolated for long enough until they can no longer breed with the original population.  On islands especially, the offshoot population is presumed to be a very few amount of individuals (or even one) that become isolated.  Looking at the diversity of live on islands, one can conclude that the incestuous relationships of these species couldn't have been all that wrong.

See, debatable!
Title: Re: Random Political Comic thread
Post by: Wendy on March 10, 2010, 01:32:52 AM
The morality of both incest and cannibalism is questionable at best, but since society deems it immoral, there's really no way of saying it isn't without people reacting like CR90. He may be an immature asshat about it, but his reaction is healthy, and only shows that he can learn morals from his community. Honestly, I think we shouldn't stigmatise cannibalism as much as we do. Human corpses are taking up too much space as it is, and once you're dead, even if there is an afterlife, why the hell would you care about what happens to the one thing that's shackled you to the mundane Earthly life you've lived all these years? I know I wouldn't.

However, many Christians today claim that homosexuality is a sin and that God considers it wrong. When asked for the Scriptural foundation for this, they will invariably cite Leviticus 18:22.

Quote from: Leviticus 18:22
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Why is this verse still considered applicable, even though the rest of the Mosaic Law has been discarded?
Because none of the other sexual prohibitions have been discarded.

Mykael is right. We are no longer bound by mosaic law (Acts 10). That being said, As far as extramarital sexual relations (specifically homosexuality) are concerned, they are referenced as sin in the New Testament as well.

In some states, homosexuals can marry. Is it still sin?
Laws != sins
He said "extramarital," and if you have sex with your spouse, it's not extramarital.

I never got an answer for this. Any takers?

This is like having a discussion with a brick wall.

Ok, this is how I want you to present your argument: Action - moral? - reason

For instancee: Murder - No - You are breaching the other person's right to life, causing distress and anguish for the family and removing his contributions to society.

Rape - No - You are violating  the woman's privacy, causing extreme mental anguish and removing her right tio decline sex as well as possibly physically harming her in the event of STIs and pregnancy

Helping an old lady across the road - yes - You have aided another human being acomplish a task she was previously incapable of doing, you have reduced the risk of injury to her and mental injury for any driver who might've otherwise hit her.

OK? This is not a valid answer:

Incest - No - Because it's a member of your own family.

Murder - Killing another person. - No - You are breaching the other person's right to life, causing distress and anguish for the family and removing his contributions to society.

This just makes it bleedingly obvious that:

Incest - Having sex with a member of your own family. - No - Because it's a member of your own family.

Genesis 19:29-38

19And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.

 31And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:

 32Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

 33And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

 34And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

 35And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

 36Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

 37And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.

 38And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

We actually don't know about Adam and Eve. It never specifically states that Adam and Eve were the first and only humans. It does, however, specifically state that Noah, his sons and their respective wives were the only 8 people left on the planet, or barring that and assuming that they meant that the known world was drowned, the only people left in south-western Asia, south-eastern Europe, and northern Africa. That's still a lot of sister-humping before you get that area re-populated, though.

Adam and Eve may have been the only humans, but then how do you explain the people in the land of nod? I'm doubting their kids all of a sudden forgot about their older brother and would have killed him, so God giving him a mark to protect him makes little sense.

Stop being purposefully obtuse, you can't expect people to be moral stalwarts when they are intoxicated, so he obviously wasn't being a good man and this act can't be assumed to be good. Wine is drunk often in the bible, it's moral as long as it isn't harmful.

So drugs are fine as long as they aren't harmful? Of course since him being drunk wasn't harmful, does that mean fucking his daughters was fine?

Actually, the sky is mostly transparent and only appears blue to Earth-bound observers because of a process called 'scattering'. Also at sunset and sunrise the colour of the sky goes through pinks, oranges, reds...

This is before we count pollutants and clouds in the air, out of my window in Britain the sky currently appears grey because of all the clouds

It's kind of hard to sum up any belief system in a few paragraphs. Discordianism isn't so much a religion/belief system as the tools to build one. DIY spirituality/worldviews, kinda.

-It's a religion disguised as a joke disguised as a religion.
-It's counterculture that avoids mainstream integration like the freaking plague
-Heavy, heavy emphasis on sarcasm
-Operation Mindfuck is a fairly big portion of Discordianism: it's a kind of idealogical pranking. The idea is to confront people in the midst of their ordinary days with something that makes absolutely no sense and can't easily be explained. This tends to jolt people out of their little "reality tunnels" and opens them up to the possibility of new thought/ideas.
-Offers some interesting models/explanations of how the human mind works (Law of Fives)
-Deals a lot with the interrelationship of perceived Order and Disorder
-If religion is the opiate of the masses, Discordianism is the marijuana of the lunatic fringe.

As of right now there's a very active/productive Discordian forum at PrincipiaDiscordia.com. Here's two of their latest works:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/14714852/Sacred-Chao-Te-Ching (http://www.scribd.com/doc/14714852/Sacred-Chao-Te-Ching)(Some in-references, makes more sense after you familiarize yourself with the different terms/concepts)
http://www.principiadiscordia.com/bip/1.php (http://www.principiadiscordia.com/bip/1.php)


Also, you're a Pope, too. What you do with that authority is, of course, up to you.

You keep telling yourself that. That's why your parents wasted so much time raising you correctly, so you could throw it away. A person in thier right mind still uses their morals where ever they are.
As you may or may not have noticed, I've never attacked your sister. I even defended you in the original "bash on CR90's sister" thread, before you came along and stoked the flames even more.

I call you on your illogic and stupidity, nothing more.

Why don't you use your morals and not make jokes about people killing their family members when you have a sister that has died. With that statement you showed a complete lack of empathy and opened yourself up to the inevitable shit storm of sister jokes. Either you are a truly heartless person completely dependent on religion for morals (unlikely) or you enjoy the attention your "dead sister" brings you.

I doubt you have a sister, enjoy whichever rotting corpse it is you dug up.

An opinion is an opinion is an opinion. You can't have a wrong opinion. Also, majority opinion can't decide what's morally right. The majority of people think that incest is wrong, yet if you don't have any children in an incestuous relationship, you're harming no one who doesn't choose to deliberately harm themselves by taking offence.

He'd leave an ostentatious leaving letter full of accusations of e-bullying and lack of respect and general BAWWing if he left for good. People like him can't leave without making a scene.

Oh, no, not that.  What he does is, he commits suicide and leaves a note blaming his death on us monstrous cyber-bullies.  The police investigate, the story becomes international news, and we all go down in a series of arrests for harassment and aiding and abetting a suicide.  Like Phoebe Prince or something.

I have gained a sort of quasi-respect for you, CR90. You've at least stopped moaning about our blatant personal attacks every time we do it. It's funny that I say "we," though. I think I was in on some rather shameless trolling when this first came about, but I certainly didn't perpetually imply you had incestuous relations with, and killed, your sister for this long. Anyway, I think it's just because we're in a situation where the implied sides of the conflict are you, and the rest of the forum. The point, for the record, is that you have matured quite a bit in the past six months in my opinion. Or at least your way of posting here has.

My religious beliefs include having the right to murder you. Will the United States government let me do that?

Why don't you ask every other nut bag rotting in prison for "murdering for his religious beliefs".

Yeah, why don't you ask all those Xians?

What? I Don't understand Stupid-ese.

You speak it fluently, however. Maybe that inability to read your own posts is why you fail hard in every attempt at reasonable debate.

I'd like to point out that the first statement is not true. Religious fundamentalism and stupidity are deeply linked, but my GF is somewhat religious and she is just as intelligent as anyone else. It all depends on how it's implemented and interpreted.

CR90, you must realise that this argument like any other argument for the existence of any part of Christian mythology is inherently weak, because it looks exactly like random chance. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I claim that there has never been a supposed miracle which a) was proven to be completely true, and b) ruled out any random factors.(People who stop seconds before being squashed by a train, chronic leg pains disappearing, getting better when diagnosed with terminal illnesses etc.)

Objection. Drivers are mostly retards when it comes to bikes.
but if you know that fact and ride anyway... that is like having a guy play with a bear get attacked, then saying he wasn't stupid it was the bear that was stupid. he should have known the inherent dangers of dealing with something that stupid and not done it.

very wrong analogy  :-\

CR90, you must realise that this argument like any other argument for the existence of any part of Christian mythology is inherently weak, because it looks exactly like random chance. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I claim that there has never been a supposed miracle which a) was proven to be completely true, and b) ruled out any random factors.(People who stop seconds before being squashed by a train, chronic leg pains disappearing, getting better when diagnosed with terminal illnesses etc.)

So you've never been distracted? ok. You mustn't be human then. you need to be sent to the mythological version of area 51

The problem being that people get hit by cars everyday. You either get lucky or you don't. You stop and narrowly avoid getting hit by a car, THANK JEEBUS! Or you don't, and you get plowed by a car. So this argument holds no water.

And, it wasn't a hate crime. You're free to burn whatever books you want, just don't delude yourself by thinking it is in any way art when the purpose is to burn a book you disagree with rather than relay a message through symbolism.

Just because you're distracted doesn't mean you're utterly oblivious to the world, the survival instincts in our bodies are incredibly strong and generally work in the background of conscious awareness.

Ya, this comes down to the same sort of converstation as the healing power of prayer.

Christian:  He didn't get hit by a bus because of a guardian angel!
Atheist:    Well what about all the people that do get hit by buses, they somehow don't have guardian angels?
Christian: They do, but it was just their time to go to heaven.
Atheist:    So all the people that did get saved, it was not there time to go?
Christian: That is correct.
Atheist:    So if it is already pre-determined whether or not it is your time to go, what is the purpose of the guardian angel, and why claim
               that it was the guardian angel that saved them?
Christian:  Er....

Firstly, that isn't a cartoon or comic, secondly if you decided to address your own ignorance you'd find that nothing is inherently unstable, with virtual particles popping in and out of existance all the while*

The universe is still made of 'nothing' if you consider that matter and energy can neither be created nor destroyed. and that Energy is equal to mass times the speed of light squared (E=MC^2) as gravity is, in fact a negative energy, mathematically** thus balancing the amount of energy and matter which appeared 'out of nothing' as you would claim.

Thirdly, self-replicating molecules didn't re-arrange themselves 'for no reason' but through chemical reactions we can observe, predict and measure today. If you don't believe that self-replicating molecules can create a living being then consider the fact that you did it yourself. You were once nothing more than the food and drink your mother and father decided to consume which is changed through chemical reactions into the molecules necessary for creating human eggs and sperm.

Being charitable doesn't automatically qualify you as a believer in Christ and thus guarantee you a spot in heaven.

That's like saying because I was born I'm entitled to a job.

Jesus healed sick, brought people back from death, saved people from being stoned to death, restored vision to a blind man, etc.

Now knowing y'all you gonna say I called Ghandi evil, which I have not.

There's a difference between not letting someone into heaven and torturing them for eternity though, isn't there?

Oh and, I'm very sorry for you, CR90, I hope one day you find the inner strength and happiness you need to walk without religion. I'll be thinking of you.

Technically, though, it's their own fault. They were exposed to the one true faith and denounced it to go do something else. Of course, in Gandhi's case, I can imagine why. Being a Hindu, he only had one chance, since you can only be born into Hinduism.

Actually, that just means that the views of Christianity as a whole, and thereby heaven and hell, don't really matter. Therefore, why would you be offended that he's in hell right now? Also, I'm pretty sure you can get baptized after death in some denominations and sects. People will probably have done that already, so assuming for a moment that all denominations are true, Gandhi is in heaven.

Even though I don't believe in hell I find it very offensive if someone says that that's where I'm going. Especially because they're usually hypocrite assholes. And saying something like that about someone that I believe we should use as a role model isn't only offending, but can damage the change of humanity into something more peaceful.

Because a bunch of blind dogmatic guys sitting in their comfortable armchairs in a warm house reading their little book, think they can judge and know the truth about the fate that some Almighty Being would decide for one (if not the most) peaceful, hardworker, sincere, honest lad that has been out there.

Technically, though, it's their own fault. They were exposed to the one true faith and denounced it to go do something else.

I once asked this ultra-conservative chick what about people never exposed to Christianity (like remote tribes in the Amazon who have zero exposure to the outside world).  Do they go to hell too because they never accepted Jesus?

Her answer was, as you might expect, appalling. 

Yes, they do go to hell.  But it's okay, because her pastor (Non-Denominational Christian) once told her that Jesus had revealed himself to all the peoples on the plant at one point or another throughout history [citation needed].  Those tribe's ancestors had rejected Jesus and thus condemned all their decedents to an eternity in hell. 

No proof needed, no questions asked, no sources provided (not even the bible), yet she believed this explanation to be 100% true; no margin of error.  I believe she thought this partly because it was told to her from someone she trusted (whom I think pulled the explanation out of one of the darker recesses of his ass) and partly because it was something that she simply wanted to believe.

Two things. Jesus blasphemed within the jewish religion repeatedly. Among the bigger ones was him telling his disciples to drink his blood. The drinking of the blood, even in the meat of an animal, is theft from god as clearly stated in the bible.

Secondly, are you claiming every person before jesus, including noah, adam, eve, moses, and every member of the jewish faith that was promised by your/my/our god an afterlife actually went to hell?

Here's a hint. Find a Bible in your language here:

http://www.biblegateway.com/versions/ (http://www.biblegateway.com/versions/)

Try to search the passage where it says the things you are claiming it does. Then, quote the Book, the chapter:the verse. We will find it in the English language easily then.

I would say it is agnostic. On the surface this may look like splitting hairs as the line between agnostic and atheist can be nebulous at times. Perhaps I can explain. Atheist is one who generally rejects the idea of a deity while agnostic is one without a deity. When applied to people, it seems to be a trivial difference. However, when applied to national policy, the difference is quite clear. Can you think of many policies that reject the idea of a deity? I can think of a few that some people may argue reject a deity, but what they really do (the ones coming to my mind) is separate the deity from policy. Now, how many national policies can you think of that are simply lacking in a deity?  The vast majority.

The Soviet Unions policies were not driven by a general rejection of the idea of a deity.

Those aren't the dictionary definitions, though. An Atheist is one without belief in a deity or deities, and an Agnostic is one who does not know. You can be an Agnostic Atheist and in fact I think most Atheists are.

And the word "irony" is almost never used correctly by definition.  Quite nebulous indeed.

Very nebulous. Now start using it right.

What about secular? With respect to national policy, that seems more appropriate, although it isn't even relevant to the comic.

Old, but relevant. Not sure if it's been posted before. Also, accurate.

This picture is actually retarted. That should be militant agnostic, there have been militant atheists for a long time. The Soviet Union was pretty much a militant atheist state.

I believe that your argument might have validity if the Soviet Union was driven by atheistic beliefs.  If you can demonstrate that the Soviet Union's militaristic society had atheistic motives dictating its policies then I'll agree with you, otherwise I would ask you withdraw your assertion that the comic is retarted.

The Soviet Union was the first state to have as an ideological objective the elimination of religion[1] and its replacement with atheism.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_the_Soviet_Union

Marxism–Leninism has consistently advocated the control, suppression, and eventual elimination of religion. Within about a year of the revolution, the state expropriated all church property, including the churches themselves, and in the period from 1922 to 1926, 28 Russian Orthodox bishops and more than 1,200 priests were killed. Many more were persecuted.[6]


That is not acting without regard to religion. It is eliminating it in the belief there is no god.

Read moar.


@wendy jesus had nothing to do with the sham economic system used to keep the poor desolate and the people in power rich and in control. Also economics has nothing to do with this discussion of religion.

I think it's more eliminating it in favor of mindless hordes of workers than atheism, but you do have a point.

That was copy pasted from wikipedia not my own words. I think they are referring to the Soviet ideas of marxism and not his own words.

Marx did not create or advocate Marxism-Leninism. In fact, it did not even exist during Marx's lifetime.

I read the article you linked and the reference from the U.S. Library of Congress. At first impulse is wanted to qualify my words or argue on the baisis of a technicality (or perhaps even argue that the comic was only showing modern militant actions -- also a dishonest tactic on my part). However, I could not in good conscience reconcile away the deaths of 1,228 people.  Their persecution seemed to be very clearly motivated by athiesm. So I officially retract my statement and withdraw my query for you to recant on the account that you've found 1,228 people killed from atheistic motives.

In the future I'll endeavor to be less abosute in my challenges and phrase myself more eloquently.

You were correct either way. Marxism-Leninism was a right-wing deviation from mainstream Marxism and was criticized as such by most socialists at the time of its conception. Any "orthodox" Marxist could tell you that, so I'm not sure why Douchebag seems to be taking issue with it.

I had assumed he meant Marxism/Leninism, thereby equating the two, rather than a separate thing.

I don't know why you would assume that, considering he said Marxism-Leninism instead of Marxism/Leninism.

Given the ignorance he displayed before by claiming that the culls in Soviet Russia were a result of Marx-based militant atheism, it wouldn't surprise me.
