I just got done trying to read the Bible a few minutes ago, actually. I didn't like the livestock part, or the part about woman being a physical extension of man, like an appendage or something. I figured that the New Testament was probably kinder, but you pretty much need to read the Old Testament in order to be clued in. Then I thought about how detailed and sort of dense a collection of stories it was, and how many cumulative years people waste studying it.

It's very easy to agree with OP, even from an agnostic standpoint.

And that's why people like OP are fucking retards. Even if you don't believe in religion, it's not a waste to study it. Religion has been an integral part of humanity since the beginning and has shaped civilizations. To understand human history you need to understand religion, and vice versa. You can read the New Testament all you want, but if you don't understand the historical context of the time period it was written it, you won't fully understand it.
>It's very easy to agree with OP, even from an agnostic standpoint.
Unfortunately that is true. Some people are too lazy to bother studying the natural world and science, and some people are too lazy to study religion and the philosophy of older civilizations.

some people would argue against that, considering we still have rape and murder and shit going on in the world today, even in a state of religious decline.

>>
>>6989620
this. it's all about context, from social psychology to political archetypes by region. It's not simply that the thing exists, it's how it was shaped and conformed to its environment.

Even ideas are subject to the laws of causality (their base nature is influenced by necessity) and evolution (in the form of adaptation).
>>
>>6988144
I agree that religion is a cancer to scientific progress, but most average people need a promise that things will be allright and that they are being watched over by some diety. The picture that science has painted of the universe is really scary. That you don't matter and that nothing you do have consequences (to you). If it was not for religion I believe we'd all walk around and kill each other simply out of raw emotional responses, people get offended by the stupidest things (this thread is a good example). I understand that people in our modern society still need religion, but I certainly hope that the whole notion of religion will be out-phased before humanity's extinction.
>>
>>6989739
deeply supported. indeed one of the neverending posts.
>>
>>6989705
At its core, almost all the religious texts preach pretty universal stuff like kindness, altruism and ideas about order for society. They all leave out the stuff that falls into "common sense" for it would be beneath a holy script to adress it. Most of what causes controversy, debate and strife today is found in texts added later on by followers trying to make their mark on the original text. Agnostic here, but I have deep affinity for the buddhist community and the Quran was a great read.
>>
>>6989739
>If it was not for religion I believe we'd all walk around and kill each other simply out of raw emotional responses
I'm religious, but that's not true at all. Empathy and altruism emerge naturally in pack societies because it's an effective means of survival. You can observe this in many animal species, from bonobos to dolphins to elephants. A heightened human intellect only leads to more refined aspects of this behavior.

here's my take on that:

Dude: "Hey king, have you heard this awesome story about how we should love everyone and be good people, and how we'll be rewarded for repenting for our sins?"

King: "Is ______ a sin?"

Dude: "Yeah, I mean, it's a pretty shitty thing to do."

K: "But I do that all the time, fuck your story and this dude! Guards!"

D: "Whoa, wait, hold up. I just got a message from the big guy...he says it's cool so long as you ________"

K: "That's better."

TL;DR:

Not everything in the religious texts is from the source material. It doesn't take much thought to realize that.

Are we actually free? Or are we subconsciously molded by our environments and experiences?

>pretty much need to read the old testament
This is false. The Gospels are an account of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, there's nothing in the old testament that needs to be known to understand Jesus' teachings. Much of what Jesus says isn't all that difficult to understand or agree with either. Just by that fact I can tell you didn't even try to read it.
>old testament had rules i disagree with
The old testament's laws are part of the old covenant and were rules for the Jewish tribes to follow in order to separate themselves from pagans. You can choose to follow them but Jesus says the most important thing to do in this life is follow the Golden Rule, love your fellow man, believe in Christ as your lord.

Read Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, etc. because Russian writers think about God a lot and interpret scripture in interesting ways.

>Stalin was a priest

Which is ironic considering they worshipped El (a Sumerian deity) and Yahweh (another deity they picked up from a random tribe). Eventually they just combined the two into one. And at other points they worshiped various other gods too, such as the golden calf (likely the Egyptian god Apis), Moloch and the Saturn deity Remphan (see Amos 5:25-26 and Acts 7:42-43). Even modern-day Judaism is polytheistic, with their god having male (Jehovah) and female (Shekhinah) versions that they worship differently.

>>
>>6991807
>but science, willing to FIND an answer instead of making shit up, is?
You can glorify the scientific process all you want, but the scientific community, and as a result what is taught in schools, is heavily biased toward a liberal agenda. For example, the whole out-of-Africa thing has been completely debunked, yet it's still taught as fact (look up the paper "Re-Examining the Out of Africa Theory"). Similarly, James Watson (the guy who discovered the double-helix) had to sell his Nobel prize because he was going broke, because the entire scientific community shunned him after he made the rather obvious assertion that Africans have an inherently lower IQ.

In fact, there has been study after study showing that sub-Saharan Africans and their American counter parts have significantly lower IQs than any other race except for Australoids, and contrary to popular belief, education and environment do little to change this (look up the Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study). I could go on and on with examples of how Africans are not only different, but inferior, but you get the point. The mainstream scientific community refuses to talk about and accept these facts because they don't go along with their agenda.

>>
>>6988144
When I was 14, yes. But the fact to the matter is that religion fills an essential part of what makes us human.
Science does not have all the answers and the ones it has mean that life is utterly meaningless.
>>
>>6991807
Dam you are an ignorant piece of shit.

Your "response" to the fact that science does not have all answers is to point out that there exist questions that science can answer.
Can you not see what sad kind of response that is? (All X are false because for one X it is true is a fallacy)

Tell me: what happens after death? Why does there exist anything? Is there meaning in life?
Do you honestly think science has clear cut answers to this all? You have to be moronic to think that.

The rest of that is even sadder, you have to be a miserable person to believe that everything about life is physical.
What is love? And since you are going to answer "chemicals in your brain" point me to one scientific reason why killing yourself is wrong, since "it is all just chemicals in my brain" why would it matter if you made them stop?

I once also though exactly like you did, but that was when I going through my "edgy" phase at about 16. I seriously hope that you can grow out of it and realize that there are things in the world you can not comprehend and that calling everything meaningless only makes you hate yourself.

Free will exists, things would be to complicated if it didn't. There would be too many choices that are pre-determined for us not to be in control of our choices. Also we're not a victim to cause and effect, rather we choose what causes effect us as well as what effects we cause. We are the seeing hearing smelling feeling expressive thinkers in the galaxy.

>>6999483
You should try studying the commonalities between early religions and read about their actual literal translations, sans religious stuff (especially the Sumerians, Egyptians, South Americans and Hindus). There's a theory going around that what these ancient people described in their "holy" texts are actually just extra-terrestrials, and later generations misinterpreted it as religious. Whether or not you buy into it, it's pretty interesting. I'd recommend reading Fingerprints of the Gods, or if you've got two hours to spare, watch this: https://youtu.be/EP-VQxD5PnQ

religion has been pretty much the number one cause of genocide since way back when. actually religion was the cause of the fall of ancient Mesopotamia. since then Egypt sacrificed how many lives for their gods. you ask yourself how does this relate to me? well all you have to do is look at modern history to see that OUR religion is the cause of witch hunts and crusades. and then you have the audacity to blame atheists for murder. Religion is the number one cause for arms on this planet. Should I list whats happening in the middle east. another genocide has begun because their beliefs are different. Ohhh conveniently you can say it was a reaction to a religious provocation from an entire culture but its been made clear that was NOT the case. Even Buddhist monks known for 'peaceful beliefs' have a history of violence and murder... Alternatively we can look at the number of catholic priests who like to touch children if you like.

Evolution as far as lesser animals go is pretty substantiated and makes a lot of sense. However, the idea of modern man existing for 200,000 years but only just inventing actual societies, infrastructure and writing several thousand years ago is retarded.

There is a lot of archaeological evidence showing advanced civilizations and weird anachronisms way before they were thought possible, but usually they're brushed off and ignored because they don't fit the established narrative. Göbekli Tepe is a good recent example and I'm kind of amazed people are even studying it. The megalithic stones at Baalbek are another example (pic related). The Romans and later civilizations build temple complexes all around the place, but they are built on top of existing structures which would have been impossible even for the Romans or Byzantines. Then there's the weird Stonehenge-like structure underneath Lake Michigan:

Apollo 8 reading out of Genesis
https://youtu.be/XEmn0uaQCYc

Yuri quote is a fake, he was baptized in the Orthodox Church
>Some sources have claimed that Gagarin commented during the flight, "I don't see any God up here." However, no such words appear in the verbatim record of his conversations with Earth-based stations during the spaceflight.[23] In a 2006 interview, Gagarin's friend Colonel Valentin Petrov stated that the cosmonaut never said such words, and that the quote originated from Nikita Khrushchev's speech at the plenum of the Central Committee of the CPSU about the state's anti-religion campaign, saying "Gagarin flew into space, but didn't see any god there."[24] Petrov also said that Gagarin had been baptised into the Orthodox Church as a child, and a 2011 Foma magazine article quoted the rector of the Orthodox church in Star City saying, "Gagarin baptized his elder daughter Yelena shortly before his space flight; and his family used to celebrate Christmas and Easter and keep icons in the house."[25]

Why are fedoras so desperate to take from Christian accomplishments?

When anyone ever says to me "I'm atheist" or "I hate religion", they're basically telling me they're anti-Christian. Never have I heard any of these fuckers, except a few of the high prfile ones, speak shit about Islam or Hinduism or Judaism. It's always Christianity they have beef with.

Wut? There are plenty of atheists who hate those religions. The one religion no atheist seems to be able to refute when backing up their claims of "religion being cancer" is Buddhism. Since it's a pretty harmless religion that focuses on the betterment of mankind, atheists just tend to ignore it.

Religion is cancer? Dude WTF! That's so rude. At least some forms of cancer can be cured if it's diagnosed early enough. Religion is more like a brain virus removing all skeptical thinking capabilities from their host.

When jehovas witnesses come to my door i always take a couple of minutes and lets them tell me their crazy stories. It is just amazing how creative those people were that invented religions back in the day.

I never get angry with them because they are always nice people ... just a bit backward in their thinking.

And no i'm not an atheist. I would call myself agnostic. I hope that there is something after we die but i can't be certain that's why i want to live forever.

Your entire argument has 0% to do with atheism. Stop making the rest of us look like you: a pretentious tryhard using childish arguments that have no relation to the context of the argument.

Unless you work super hard for it and have the means, financially, physically intellectually or otherwise, to get into a field that isn't dependent on being a wage slave, everyone becomes a wage slave. That's life. You aren't exempt from reality by thinking differently, which it isn't really different, it's just a lack of belief. Actually focus the scope of your argument before you make it so you don't look like said faggy edgelord.

This. Religious literature is jam packed with historically relevant material. Why is it that every civilization has a flood story? Because every early civilization relied on floods to survive. If it flooded too little, there was death. Too much, death. It only makes sense that flooding captured the imagination.
