Terrorism: noun. The use of violence, intimidation, and threats to spread fear; especially for political purposes.

By that definition, all forms of Christianity and Islam are terrorism by default. Any religion that includes a concept of Hell or punishment is Terrorism and should be treated as such.

God creates humans that he set up to fail from the get-go. Humans fail, even though god set it up that way intentionally. The first family had 2 sons, so lineal incest is the only way to populate the world. People piss off god so much that he drowns them all except for 1 family during the flood, leaving them to populate the entire world again through linear incest.

People still make him angry, so god rapes his child so she can become pregnant with child; which is also god in the flesh. God in the flesh walks around on earth for 33 years, and proclaims himself the son of himself. He then needs to sacrifice himself to himself in order to satisfy himself with his grudge against humans.

God dies, but doesn't die because he's god. I guess it's just a weekend trip. God comes back from the dead, and walks around and says some shit for 40 days, until he ascended on the day of ascension to go sit next to his own right hand until the end of time, at which time he'll come back to earth and kill everybody who doesn't believe this story.

Christianity is flat out stupid.

This isn't really a statement about specific things that are bullshit, but many Christians will say things like "I know the Bible" when what they really mean is they know the parts of they've been taught.
Once you start studying the Bible yourself you realize all the horrific things most people aren't taught and most preachers never talk about. Just a few:
Women and children are not only supposed to submit to the man, they are basically property.
If a man rapes a virgin, he has to make restitution by paying the father. If a woman lies about being a virgin, she can be put to death.
If your children disobey you, you can have them stoned to death.
Women never have the right to right to file for divorce but men can in the case of infidelity.
God once had a bear maul a group of young children because they called a prophet baldy.
God struck Uzzah dead because he touched the ark to keep it from falling over.
God ordered the genocide of complete cities, including women, children, and animals because they didn't worship him, yet we are taught God is love.
If a man is homosexual, he can be stoned to death.
If you get a tattoo, you can't go to heaven.
The verse that people use in Romans to say homosexuality is a sin and won't go to heaven actually translates as male prostitute rather than homosexual. Also, other things besides that are listed, but people leave those out.
If a man thinks his wife has been unfaithful and she is pregnant, he can mix a drink of herbs and if she was unfaithful, the baby will die and be extracted out of her body on her thigh, yet we are taught abortion is a sin in the eyes of God under any circumstances.
God curses entire generations, up to the 7th generation, because of the sins of the forefathers.
God hardened Pharaoh's heart causing him to refuse to release the Israelites but then punished him for not releasing them.
All throughout the Old Testament men who were blessed by God had multiple wives and concubines, yet we are taught the Bible teaches one man and one woman only in a marriage.

Psalm 137 says that anyone who smashes the babies of Babylon against the rocks and kills them is blessed.
We are taught that the Bible says we must give a tenth of our cash to the church, yet in the Bible tithing was the giving of food and crops so the priests could eat. At the time, there was already a monetary system in place. If it was supposed to be a tenth of your cash, that's what they would have said.
Lot offered up his two virgin daughters to be gang raped so the "wicked" men of the city would not have relations with two male visitors to his house. Lot was not punished but the men of the city were struck blind.
Slavery was condoned in the Bible.
The King James Version of the Bible has words and entire verses in it that some other translations do not. These verses and words were not in the original texts yet many people believe the KJV is the only true Bible, even though the Bible itself says do not add or take away from the texts.
Also, it was finished in 1611. It wasn't even the first Bible. The first Bible to be printed on a moveable type printing press was the Gutenberg Bible, printed in 1454 or 1455, a full 150 years before the before the KJV was even commissioned and 112 years before James was even born. That's not including all the other handwritten versions that existed before the printing press. Also, the Catholic version of the Bible is different than the Protestant version (the Catholic version has more books).
And then, I'm not going to even get into contradictions.
Any time any of this is brought up, Christians say something like "We can't question God" or "That's what is says but that's not what it means!" Another nugget is "Those were Old Testament laws! Jesus changed that with the new covenant!" even thought Jesus himself said he didn't come to change the law, only to fulfill it.
Many Christians also say that all the violence is limited to the Old Testament. They have clearly ignored or never read Revelation.
The more you study the Bible, the more you realize it just doesn't add up.

Problems with universal utilitarianism? Anonymous 06/06/2017 (Tue) 14:31:37 [Preview] No. 499 [Reply]
Can you identify any problems with his argument?
>I believe I have come up with a new variant of utilitarian moral theory that avoids the flaws of both act and rule utilitarianism, which I call universal utilitarianism. It can be summed up in a single sentence, and without further ado, here it is:
>"Always minimize both actual and potential suffering; always maximize both actual and potential happines."
His argument is the closest I have seen to a practical objective morality. However, it would be difficult to follow if others didn't follow it too. I am not willing to give most of my money to the poor, mainly because I Don't think someone richer would do the same for me. I am not nearly rich enough to be the one who should do more to help others financially either. But as an atheist with some education, maybe I can help others intellectually who have less knowledge

Happiness is a form of potential suffering. Unless it's the kind of happiness that equals death. Your faith in an universal reward is pathetic.

"Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the 'transcendent' and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you." [/autism]

I once read a short sci-fi story where a prominent atheist scientist dies and ends up in front of God.
Short story shorter (spoilers) God lets most people just wink out of existence and only saves the minds of the smartest, cleverest people to try and figure out a way to kill God as he is tired of existing..

It was called the last answer by assimov.

>Most of Kenya are Christians
>Most of Conservatives believed Barrack Obama was a Muslim and native Kenyan.
>Closer to the truth is that his father was an atheist.

When Obama (Sr.) was about six years old and attending a Christian missionary school, he converted from Islam to Anglicanism when strongly encouraged by the staff. He changed his name from "Baraka" to "Barack."[1] Obama (Sr.) later became an atheist, believing that religion was mere superstition.[22]

Do you think escaping is possible? This prison planet, I mean. This fake reality pulled over our heads by the enslavers. People are waking up, but I think it's all very carefully controlled.

As a lolicon, do you ever feel hopeless? As hated as people like that are. Do you ever feel despair?
I'm beginning to think that's the way out. Reality itself is consciousness, and it's all interconnected at the higher levels. The mind exists independently of the body. And creates the body. Emotional reactions connect us to this place.
So if we manage to become totally hopeless, despairing, borderline-suicidal, we can merit the lack of attachment required to walk the universe with unfettered tread. I've seen some results.
They try to put barriers over our minds to keep us from connecting, but that isn't totally possible.
The point of suffering is to develop hopelessness and despair.
Only when you're really and truly suicidal, when you really and truly don't care anymore, do you gain power.
When you completely stop caring, you can do anything.
You stop caring about belief systems (religious, materialistic, etc.), so you discover that life really is just a dream, and all the rules can be broken.
You stop caring about death, so you stop being inhibited about doing anything.
It only comes after you've been damaged deep down to your very core, AND you've declared yourself independent and refuse to be force-fed beliefs by anything else.
Only when you're so gleefully nihilistic that fear no longer exists, belief (in god, science, etc.) is no longer a limitation, torture no longer affects you, and death is no longer a concern, do you get what you're looking for.

What do you think?
