Why is this manga so popular, /a/?
Let's not forget that the prequel had the most overpowered Big Bad ever. Killing off almost the entire world? I know its fiction but come one.
If it was a harem, it would be way better. At least Islam guarantees 72 virgins, so I'd choose that personally.
Is it any better than the Book of Enoch?
(Most fans consider it a doujin, but some take it as cannon.)
Don't remember how it ended, but it was full of fallen angel shit and monster babies or something.
> John 21:25
25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
this motherfucking writers and their sequel hooks. SEASON 2 WHEN
>The only good arcs of the first half of the manga are the Noah arcs
>yfw you realize the Battle of Armageddon will never be aired on TV.
All that graphic violence and bloodshed. The Son of God knows how to end a series.

No, anon. The punmeister is the one who posts the carlos, not the pun-catcher.
>originally write the messiah as the king of Jews who will come and reestablish the kingdom of Judea and make it conquer the world

what, you can't into holy trinity?
Think of it like Zangetsu, hollow Ichigo, and Ichigo
Hollow Ichigo is actually Ichigo's shinigami power, but exists simultaneously
Zangetsu is his quincy power, also simultaneous
Ichigo is his human spiritual power, also simultaneous
Each can be independent, know things the others don't, and use their powers in different ways
But the Ichigo that people see is the culmination of all three
Why didn't God just send out specifically targetted lightning bolts to the evil people on Earth instead of making Noah build a boat and collect animals?
Why didn't Noah just use the Eagles to fly over the water instead of a boat?
Why, you ask?

So much wasted potential. Also:
>Governor is willing to acquit Paul of his crimes if he stands trial in Jerusalem
>Appeals to Caesar anyway
>THE CITY OF ST. PAUL
Because every other person outside of Noah was evil or young enough to not be morally culpable and thus had nothing to fear from dying.
Because the eagles can't carry the elephants duh!
>Did nothing wrong

Lucifer is like 3DPD who get butthurt when men talk about 2D women.

Only if you're George Lucas.
>First half of the manga is literally lifted from the Hebrew Bible
Duh, it's the same series. Jews just don't consider the second half canon. It's like how DtB S2 doesn't exist.
>Second half of the manga is a rip off of the Quran
Nigger please, check the publication dates.
>rip off of the Quran
>ripping off a Chinese fanfiction that came out years later.
That's like saying that the Cell and Buu saga ripped off Naruto, or that EoE ripped off RahXephon.
>It's like how DtB S2 doesn't exist.
Just like electric chinese batman without power is a shit writing. God decide to become a human is also a retarded plot.

Did the author just decide to give two characters the same name, or did he just completely heel-face him?

>Damn man, if I can't get them to listen with this one race, the rest of the production line won't work

It's a collaborative work. Every writer made him less and less horrible throughout OT and it's revisions so that it would fit with NT.
Kind of like how haruhi gets less unlikable as books go by.
They made it an apple for one of the adaptations.
Read the source though, an actual fruit is never specified, and I doubt they got word of god confirmation on the type of fruit.
People always bring this up but it's like they never read Psalms. OT God was always really loving and kind too, he just couldn't stand sin. It wasn't until Jesus came along that he could really forgive and forget the way he does in NT. And yeah, NT God does speak directly to people.
It's a plot author made to make Jesus look like a savior.
Because he's the hero Israel and humanity deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.
First and only real woman.
Was so shit he had to discontinue production and seal the only copy available.
Then creates the new women's production line by using man as a base.
Eve > Lilith
God's like the biggest yandere ever
>OR ELSE I'M GOING TO BURN YOU FOREVER
Is Joseph the biggest beta in all of manga?
>Honey I'm pregnant
>But I swear I never had sex... it's... it was God!! I'm still a virgin
Oh I'm sure you are honey, lets go cuddle or something.
can anyone wrotes a scenario about muhammad?
as an eroge and strategy game like utawarerumono?
first he got milf
and then loli.
am not really know the history but i think that would be good
Depending on interpretation.
In some interpretations, Joseph is actually aware that he got ntr'd (and everyone knows too, that's why Jesus is said to be the son of Mary when adrssing him, instead of the son of Joseph) but loves her in spite of that.
Not just NTR anon, suspected loli NTR!
>On a caravan trail
>loli Aisha gets left behind because she left something at the stop (a toy I think?)
>guard get sent to find her
>everyone saying Aisha is a slut who had sex with the guard because she was out of Muhammad's sight for so long
>Muhammad believes his loli waifu and says she's pure
Eh. It was alright. The first half was pretty episodic, but it was decent overall. Second half a shit that's basically just edgy fanfiction. "Son" of the MC who's whole plan is to get tortured and die only to come back? Jesus
Because they're either just followers of Christ or children of Joseph from an earlier marriage.
If Jesus actually had siblings from Mary then why didn't he have any of them watch over his mother? Pretty sure they're described as being adult men.
to be fair, the damn thing was written, at the latest writings included, over 1700 years ago, the earliest writings over 2000 years old. there weren't exactly writing schools back then on how to tell a good story, plus a few of the many writers (multiple writers working on completely different passages with little to no collusion between writers will fuck up any written work) were convinced that they were taking dictations from some "higher voice", or so they claim, and some still were just trying to shove their propaganda into a preexisting work.
But hey, they did pretty well for their time. Don't be so harsh. OP.
>makes his kids retarded, doesn't teach them what consequences mean
>gets asspained when his retarded creations do something retarded
>allegedly omniscient, but somehow doesn't expect this
Either shit writing or God has IQ of a frog.
Jesus and Judas is my OTP. I'm not just wearing goggles! They were truly in love.
By the power of Ra!
>islam was based of this
No. God is the author and hired several different people to write and draw his manga. There are three main versions: Christian, Islam, and Jewish. They all depict God's stories in slightly different ways and have their own spin offs but it's the same universe.
Why didn't he make one single version then ? Not to mention some are contradictory, why would he say to the jews that they are the chosen people ? How come you can only become jew by being born from a jewish mother ? And why would he urge muslims to try and convert iconodules, christians and jews, who technicaly worshi the same god ? It makes no sense.
I'm still bitter that this and all it's spin offs killed my favorite pagan manga. Hell, I don't even think it's that bad, I just want more crazy Celtic legends, they felt way more interesting for being smaller in scope.
Nah, /a/ doesn't actually feel that strongly about its favorite Chinese cartoons. Besides, we're too autistic to have hurt feelings about someone calling our favorite animu shit.
It's okay man, I live in France, nobody here will stone you for not having a religion (which is roughly 40% of people here). It's just that calling people out on their beliefs is rude.
>>Moses is a massive Gary Stu until the author decides to kill him off
>Fucking Moses a Gary Stu
Guy had a known temper issue, when he was denied access into heaven ever because he struck a rock that god led him to once out of anger for the Jews constantly complaining. Though he was still one of God's most beloved who was granted privileges in life even, but even then he did some things out of anger like when he killed that Egyptian who was beating his slave out of nowhere.
Even now he sits outside the gate of Heaven, just hanging out not able to get in, but still treated pretty well all things considered. There out front with St.Peter.
That'd imply there is a reasoning behind their faith. There isn't. That's why it's called faith.
When I was a snotty arrogant brat I actually did call religious people out and tried reasoning with them but I realized it was useless and what I was doing was rude. I don't like it when a religious person is trying to convert me in the street, why would a religious person like it when I try to make them understand that the god they worship is a fabrication ? Not to mention religion is essential to some people, some can't live without it, and some found real joy in living thanks to it. I'm not cruel enough to try and rob them of that.
Also that time he broke the Ten Commandments in anger after seeing the Jews worshipping cattle after he leaves for one or two days, right after God saved them all from Egypt literally days ago.
Then Moses had to carve them himself this time, because God wasn't giving him a second copy.
>That'd imply there is a reasoning behind their faith. There isn't. That's why it's called faith.
Thats what you should be calling them out for.
That they are not rational beings for having "faith" and thinking fairy tales from bronze age have any relevance in modern world.
Reason isn't the only thing to go by in this world. Instinct is arguably irrational, yet many give priority to instinct over reason. Some people live according to their feelings too.
Of course they're being irrational, but I'm pretty sure they're aware of it. At least the people I discussed this with do. It may be different in america, I always had a feeling their christians as a whole were much more brainwashed than our own catholic ones. Of course we have christian integrists too, but nobody takes them seriously.
Instincts can be rational or irrational depending on time and context. Suspecting that everything around you is potentially dangerous and therefore evil or unclean made sense when we were primitives in Africa, surrounded by lions, hyenas and an infinite number of parasites and bacterial diseases, but in a modern man such thinking would be retarded paranoia. Thinking that anecdotal tales say something about the world as a whole made sense when somebody's tales were the only source of info, but today but we can find out much more.
So yes, living according to your "feelings" can be objectively wrong and mistaken.
That's sad then, but I guess you can't help it when you're raised into it and you don't question what people teach you. But here in France it's becoming harder and harder not to "know better" as you say. As a whole non religious people may only be 40% of the population, but in the youngest strata of the population it reaches 70%. Children discuss this shit. I least I did, I remember not even knowing what baptism was when they taught us about Clovis and I was pretty surprised when a friend of mine told me I would be going to "hell".
Lot's wife deserved everything she got. She was so hesitant to leave she almost got her entire family burnt with her.
Also >skipping the part about Lot's daughters seducing him
France is the leader in atheism in Europe.
No one ever remembers John the Baptist
Guy was one of the best
Anyone else own this? It was a Christmas gift, but the ideal itself makes it all worth it.
I-it's not like this makes me happy or anything.
These stats heavily depend on how the questions are worded, though. For example pic related; actual believers make up about 20% of the population, but most people care so little about religion that they don't think about their position at all and don't identify as anything.
Good for you, fellow brave-theist.
>Oh nooooo, stupid clickbait videos.
You mean those discussions where religious nonsense is taken more seriously than scientific research?
Yeah. Be delusional. Your nation is going to shit and there is little you can do about it.
>You mean those discussions where religious nonsense is taken more seriously than scientific research?
Has nothing to do with atheism since atheists are also superstitious.
Some of the most atheist countries on the planet are also the ones that most widely believe in ghosts.
Also a retarded point since multiple religious people currently serve on the Board for Skeptical Inquiry.
I just try not to think too much about it. I trust my fellow people will vote massively against her should she reach second round but who knows what might happen until then and who will be against her. Anyone's fine (preferably Juppé, Aubry or Segolène) as long as it's not Hollande or Sarkozy. If it were, I can't be guarantee Marine won't be president.
>Your nation is going to shit
>Says the Pepik
>Has nothing to do with atheism since atheists are also superstitious.
>Some of the most atheist countries on the planet are also the ones that most widely believe in ghosts.
But there is major difference between believing in ghosts and thinking that your believes give your live higher meaning.
>Also a retarded point since multiple religious people currently serve on the Board for Skeptical Inquiry.
Out of how many?
Well. We are all going to shit. USA is just going into deeper shit.
>the National Academy of Science charted belief in God as low as 5.5 percent among biologists and 7.5 percent among physicist and astronomers
Christfag pls go and stay go. The more educated you are the less likely you are to believe in fairytales.
>The problem is that many religious people link luck with divine intervention.
The Bible itself directly says that's bullshit; Karma isn't how it works, and sometimes you can suffer so that others are given a chance to shine by helping you or that you get a chance to shine by being tested.
That's the moral of a lot of stories there, rather than "Do good and nothing but good things will happen to you forever", rather life is a test, and all things will come upon you to seek your failure at times if you pick the true path. True path is worth it though, since eternal peace and goodness and all that if you keep to the straight and narrow despite temptation.
Just look at the story of Lot to understand how luck is bullshit. Some people in that story were even "What did you do to God, he must have cursed you for doing bad". At the end God was all "Why did you think he did something bad just because he had poor luck? Go bed his forgiveness, if he agrees then will I grant you such a thing, but he is far more noble than any of you".
No matter how devout you are, life is a test in the end, shit things happen to us all to test us or whatever
>But there is major difference between believing in ghosts and thinking that your believes give your live higher meaning
What is the difference and why does it matter?
What makes you think believing in ghosts can't convince someone their life has higher meaning?
>Out of how many
An amount significant enough to nullify anti-theist philosophies.
>USA is just going into deeper shit.
What is the quantitative scientific scale for measuring how 'deep in shit' a country goes?
Most of them are just agnostics who have no problem with religion at all.
They could even be agnostic theists.
The profession of not having absolute knowledge in no way invalidates religion.
Look, I understand you use terms like that to be inflammatory but you're misusing the English language. At most, Biblical stories would be considered 'folk narratives'. They don't fit with the definition of fairy tales in any way.
Please don't perpetuate inaccuracies.
>The Bible itself directly says that's bullshit
It also says slavery is OK and killing kids who don't listen is fine too.
Also. If it life is test, what I get for passing that test? What I get for failing that test? What if I picked the wrong test? Where are guarantess that I really get what I'm supposed to get?
>What is the difference and why does it matter?
>What makes you think believing in ghosts can't convince someone their life has higher meaning?
Because then people can do shit that would normally be immoral or dangerous to others.
Religion breeds extremists. And extremists are always bad. Even if most religious people are harmless, they create breeding ground and give justification to people who would crash themselves with plane into scyscraper just because their religion tells them so.
