>to control the masses back then.
exactly, to get everyone to be peaceful and work together because some of the higher enlightened people realized that's how you improve a nation
>its no longer needed now
Really all you did here was prove you're just an edgy angry child.
It helped civilization back then.
So who are you to assume it still isn't helping humanity?
>4CHAN /b/ routinely has no-fap challenges

Okay lets do that
>God doesn't help groups of people that aren't listening properly
>starving africans prove god doesn't exist
kek okay, I would do the same thing as God is doing.
Seems to me that God simply endorses white people and christianity while shits on brown skins and niggers.
Maybe God realizes that we need to progress as a society and as a culture.
Maybe God realizes the only way to progress is to cut out the fat.
The only way to fight islam and keep them out is to also fight atheism and be in support of Christianity.
Atheism is the open door to shariah law, atheists will be the ones who sell out the country,
Oh my apologizes
>here have a blowjob my good christian friend
Atheism where rule of law there would be no Shariah law or christian law, just logic and compassion (logic being first always)
the only thing holding you back is your fat ass. Get out of your basement. Who cares if someone wants to believe in some shit or not. It doesn`t stop you from doing what you want to do.
Don`t use excuses for your shitty life
Less white people died during slavery from any cause of slavery
Warmongering never happened unless in defense of ones own nation
Oppression of who? Women?
Christianity has always been the forefront of progress in history, every religion has been behind Christians by far. Christians were the ones who made gender equality even an option.
National identity too.
People forget that religion and politics were inseparable until very recently, and the religion a people practiced was a mark of their loyalty to the king.
Hence why Charlemagne persecuted the Saxons and why the prophets in the Old Testament were always bitching about the people worshiping idols-to worship a god different from the king meant you weren't obeying him. That's rebellion, and it meant he had to collect your head.
>Less white people died during slavery from any cause of slavery
You're a fucking retard.
defense of ones own nation.
How does it feel knowing you're a sheep?
A good little soldier for the liberal atheist democrat agenda.
My girlfriend already beat your argument
So I'll let her answer it for you
>>implying they're not
Yeah found the idiot alright.
I'm an atheist, but your post is a misrepresentation. There's no contradiction there. See for example http://megamaster125.angelfire.com/rationalchristianity/genesis-1-25-27-vs-genesis-2-18-19.html
You mean the Christians moving threw Scotland killing off every Pagan that would not switch was okay?
>equating religion with imaginary man in the sky
fucking atheist pleb
why is it that atheists have a judeochristian-centric understanding of religion? they seem to think, that just because christianity in particular is absurd bullshit and has more plot holes than manhattan, that the concept of god in general is inherently flawed and false. (and also that it inherently must involve a bearded sky grandpa who points fingers at bad people)
can god create a rock he cannot lift? yes, and then he can proceed to lift it if he so desires, while simultaneously still not being able to, because the law of noncontradiction, and indeed the whole of formal logic, is merely a set of arbitrary rules based on rational human intuition and observed patterns consistent in all past behavior of the world and observable universe, neither of which any omnipotent being would be bound to respect.
also how can atheists deny the existence of a higher power but acknowledge the existence of the universe? the universe IS a higher power. personally i'd say it might even be god. it's too complex not to be arguably sentient in some way we're fundamentally incapable of understanding
LOL @ christians and their shit tear fucking pirated good book
Brainwashed public schooled atheist.
Keep attacking christianity while muslims move in and rape and murder your people.
Just because you couldn't bare to defend the religion of the most enlightened race on the planet.
Still better than atheism or islam.
was backing you up Idiot fag
>sarcasm lost in text i guess
I masturbate damn near every day of my life since I was 15 I am now 39 married and have two kids. Before I got married I fucked so many women I can't remember all of them.
Masturbating ain't your problem autism is.
Stupid picture. It isn't a secret that Christianity was a syncretic cult right from the beginning. Christianity took the best from Judaism, Hellenistic Philosophy and Mitraism. Greek and Latin Fathers of Church turned Christianity in something more than just Jewish Messiah cult. They made it intrinsic part of Roman civilization.
Nice how it actually includes the fucking jews
>Fact 84% of jews have herpes
Most prominent atheists have spoken out against islam. They get a ton of shit for it too. The pussy democrats aren't atheists they are usually "spiritual" whatever the fuck that means. Your average atheist knows that this world would be far better if every Muslim on earth burned to death.
>Less white people died during slavery from any cause of slavery
And that's relevant how? Christianity literally promotes slavery, that's the problem here.
>Warmongering never happened unless in defense of ones own nation
Are you retarded? A shitload of wars have happened in the name of Christianity, it's cancer.
>Oppression of who? Women?
Who the fuck do you think? The priests, the bishops and the pope. Back then the pope could basically ruin everyone he wanted, even kings, if they didn't meet his demands or followed Christianity.
>Christianity has always been the forefront of progress in history, every religion has been behind Christians by far.
Yeah, executing scientists and creating a centuries long dark age sure helped humanity advance.
>Christians were the ones who made gender equality even an option.
Yeah, which is why the wife is the man's property according to Christianity.
>Your average atheist knows
no they don't, you don't know what you're talking about.
Atheism is the whole reason people think islam can be fixed through immigration into white nations.
here have some statistical facts
>Yes because atheists are such criminals and religious people are so good. /sarcasm
(As a side note the theater shooting and Sandy hook where completely fake and staged.)
aren't you embarrassed to post something that retarded?
Religion is just superstition. You'll die like everyone else that has existed, you'll decompose and actually contribute to some other life form. Choose your superstition, keep it to yourself, dont ram it down other peoples throats, shut the fuck up and have a sterling fucking day.
Thank you, I was going to mention the dark ages
>creating a centuries long dark age sure helped humanity advance.
Fuck man. Learn history. Throughout the centuries after the fall of Roman Empire (which was caused by belligerent Germanic pagans) who saved the Roman and Greek heritage? Monks. The Latin Church was all what left after Roman Empire. The Monasteries were the only centers of science. All prominent mathematicians, philosophers, astronomers etc etc were monks.
to infer that your perception ends because your flesh does is to assume and impose your assumption on me as if you are my own god.
That is foolish and wasteful. Don't bother with agnosticism or aethism. Just be good and know that real spirits are real spirits. Do drugs if you want it early. X
>Atheism is the whole reason people think islam can be fixed through immigration into white nations
Both Richard Dawkins and bill Maher have been in the news getting their dicks kicked in by left leaning folks for talking shit about Islam. It's a pretty common occurrence for outspoken atheists. The left doesn't care if you talk shit about Christians but the minute you come down on jews and Muslims then they get uptight.
There's way more religious people than atheists in the world. Yet you're surprised that more inmates are religious than not? Are you really this retarded? Most CEOs and world leaders are also religious, it doesn't mean shit. There's just more religious people in the world, which makes it statically more likely, you fucking idiot.
Oh, I see now why you think this refutes my argument. Because I asked how atheists can deny the existence of a higher power but acknowledge the existence of the universe.
If you'd actually read what I was saying, you'd notice I wasn't making the argument you're refuting. I wasn't saying the universe is so complex it must have been DESIGNED by God. I was saying the universe is so complex it IS God. Think about it.
* It's omnipotent
* It's omnipresent
* If we think of it as a giant brain it "knows" everything because everything happens inside it
* It might be sentient
* If it is, it seems to be benevolent, considering there are many ways it could destroy all life on earth and none of them has happened for billions of years (except the dinosaur incident, and even then some life survived so the universe clearly wasn't using its full power against us; a black hole could've come along instead, or a planet)
yes bad spelling
We are all aware USA has a nigger problem, It's USA's own fault for breeding niggers to be strong, violent and stupid during slavery.
>Christian attitude 'do it and ask forgiveness later' because all is forgiven.
> except the dinosaur incident
There have been 6 major extinction events in earth history that we know of including the one that is happening now. Some of them were far worse than the one that killed the dinosaurs.
point still stands, the whole of all life on earth has never been extinguished and it's certainly not because the universe lacks the power because things like black holes exist as do traveling planets and the sun
That would be why Sweden had the lowest crime rate while having legal gun ownership for every citizen while the country was 89% Atheist.
Yes Sweden is a shithole now due to Immigration, fucking rape and murder is threw the roof, all because some fucking jew liberal politician said 'we'll help them'
Random shit happens it's not about the "universe having power" whatever the fuck that means. There is no benevolence shit just is. We could get wiped out at anytime by any number of things. The universe is a cold fucking place no one loves you.
No, you're the one who needs to learn history. Throughout history, the church has tried to silence and eliminate scientific progress so that the church can't be proven wrong and thus can keep staying in power. This is like history 101, you fucking mug. How is the Roman heritage relevant again?
>All prominent mathematicians, philosophers, astronomers etc etc were monks.
Because there was no scientific proof that Christianity got some things wrong in ancient Greece like there is now, you autismo. Nowadays almost no scientist seriously believes in Christianity.
>We could get wiped out at anytime by any number of things.
and yet we haven't
>There is no benevolence shit just is.
got any proof
because as far as i can tell the claim that the universe is sentient can't be proven or disproved
that doesn't mean you should believe it's sentient
it just means, if i believe it's sentient, and you want to convince me otherwise, you have no argument
21% have no religion meaning they are agnostic or Atheist. The writer of the article in wiki should have stated that.
