it is funny how the story has it that the jews crucified jesus and he was left in a cave; when in reality it was the romans who crucified jesus because he was a threat to their political authority. it was also unlikely that jesus was put in some cave in which he later rose from the dead. Crucifixion was a method of execution used by the romans to display what they do to people who were a threat to political authority, and they kept the crucified rotting bodies up. so most likely what happened was jesus was nailed at the wrists and ankles, after hours of pain his chest would have collapsed, and the romans would have kept his dead decaying rotting body, along with the crucified bodies of many others, up for display to show to their people how resenting the empire would result.

What do you guys think would happen if the religious were presented with indisputable proof that God wasn't real? Would they still deny it, come to accept that they were wrong, or would they just go crazy and kill themselves? Something I've always thought about.

They'd narrow the definition of God. People don't seem to realise that a Christian in the 16th Century would have believed in Adam and Eve and Noah's Flood and the Tower of Babel and all that nonsense, and it was only when these beliefs became untenable that they were discarded. If you said to a historic Christian 'Genesis is just symbolic,' they'd call it blasphemous and would consider you a Heathen. Nowadays, they'd be like, 'well duh, but Jesus still died for your sins.'

So yeah, if you proved that there is no God in the Universe, they'd say he lives outside of space and time. If you said the Universe is one of infinite in a gigantic multiverse, they'd say, 'well who started the multiverse? Must be Jesus' daddy.' If you went back in time and talked to Jesus and they told you he wasn't the son of God, they'd say, 'he's just testing your faith'.

It's like a conspiracy theory - "How come all these people said they saw a plane fly into the Pentagon?" "Cos the illuminati told them to." "How come there's all this evidence that the WTCs fell because planes crashed into them?" "Cos the illuminati planted it." "Why did Al Qaeda confess?" "Cos they're illuminati stooges." There's always an answer.

Both of my parents are Atheists. My mom told me that heaven existed to make me feel better about my grandfather's death. Other than that they never even spoke about religion, so I just became an atheist by default and didn't put a lot of thought into it until I was much older.

I don't see why you should continue calling yourself a Christian then. Just say that you're a theist or better yet that you believe in some power, and stop worrying about labels.

Good for you. Not trying to sound like a hippy, but why dedicate the majority of your love to an imaginary being when you could share it with friends and family, you know, people whose lives you actually impact?

In the chat, someone said something like "Atheism: First, there was nothing, then big bang, then evolution. Without a higher consciousness. And I thought Christians were batshit crazy." I'm trying to get that as close as possible.

Palm to the face, man...some people...

I can't be sure who it was, but they were talking about being a freemason when we were talking about different religions and stuff and I was like "oh, cool, my grandfather was one". But then some waaay too cool guy had to go and say "the religious lols I'm having being an atheist" or some smug shit like that. No wonder some people have the wrong idea about atheists. And that's how the atheism topic came up. I just said "let's not get into that".

Alright. I have a few things to say. Firstly, this is my first post on Newgrounds' forums, so there's that. Secondly, I am an agnostic. So my question is this: are agnostics allowed in this club/thread? Lastly, this thread needed a revival so bad. Thanks to whoever did that!

Well, I think anybody is encouraged to discuss.

Really? So even Christians and any religious fanatics are allowed to come here as well to share their opinions?

By denying them, this club would be no better than any of them are.

Right?

Also, how do you argue against the stupidity of 'ad populum'?

I tend to avoid arguing with stupid people. If someone truly believed that kind of fallacious argument, it's probably not worth the time or effort convincing them that they're being ignorant.

Their fear of it shows how powerful the theory of evolution really is. It really does open up the ability to think of an entirely logical reason for our existence, especially in combination with the scope of the universe. No wonder some folk hate it.
