Topic: Serious Discussion / A woman's place is at the kitchen

My Christian church didn’t do that.

Protip: Your Christian church isn’t the only church around.

Now you’re just being nuts. None of that is true.

What? SERIOUSLY? Do you live UNDER A ROCK? THOUSANDS of parents (specially stupid rednecks) abandon their children for being homosexual or atheists. MY family used to like me a lot, until they saw my religious views on Facebook (Agnostic Atheist) and started disliking me – my aunt even yelled at me for it. Religious people ARE the nuts, FOR THE MOST PART.

Religion isn’t, and doesn’t make people stupid, selfish, judgmental, and crazy.

You guys can’t be serious.
My guess is that you’ve never heard of the Westboro Baptist Church, huh? Yeah.

Women were probably being treated like that well before Islam was invented.

Women were treated like princesses in Paganism, Zoroastrianism, Ancient Egyptian religions, Greek religions… Abrahamic religions (Islam, Christianity, Judaism) were the ones who fucked it up, along with homosexuals.

Boxbeat, you seem to be determined to turn your original proposition about women belonging at home into a diatribe against religion. What exactly do you want to discuss here?

It was Issendorf that doubted that religion sucked. I merely proved him wrong – and you continued it. I don’t want anything – I just answered you guys.

Firstly, are you a woman who has been forced to give up her dreams and become a home maker because of making the wrong marriage?

Does it matter? (Protip: No)

And secondly, have you had a really bad experience with religion?

Does it matter? (Protip: No)

Because it’s a long time since I have seen it attacked in such a vitriolic way.

Well – are you one of the Jews who made part of the Holocaust? Were you affected by it (or Nazism)? No? SO WHY WOULD ANYONE ATTACK IT!!! LOL IM SO SMART!!

We get your point, but you should realize that “religion” also has many, many good things to contribute.

I get your point, but you should realize religion brings happiness to a world destroyed by religion. It does far more terrible things than good. TO THIS DAY it’s still a great struggle to give Homosexuals and Women equal rights. To this day religion prohibits abortion and stem cell research to be legal. To this day Atheists are hated (and killed/exiled in some countries), scientific ignorance is spreading, people are dying on religious wars. I live in Brazil, a country in which the majority of the population is very poor – but also very religious. People sell their clunky cars to give money to churches, because Christian institutions tell their sheep that if they do not donate 10% of their income (or MORE) they are STEALING FROM JESUS and ARE GOING TO HELL. They STARVE because they give money to the Church. They ABANDON their children if they become Atheits, JUST LIKE IT HAPPENS IF THEY TURN OUT TO BE HOMOSEXUALS.
RELIGION IS THE CANCER OF THE WORLD.

Topic: Serious Discussion / I feel guns should not be available to almost everyone, because this is what happens.

Statistics I have seen show me that guns have saved many more lives than taken away – this does not even include cases in which it stops rapes, kidnappings, household break-ins… not to mention crimes that weren’t even attempted because the criminal was aware of the population being armed (this has no statistics (obviously), but it’s a VERY logical conclusion – in fact, statistics collected in prisons do say that criminals would be afraid to assault someone if they knew they most likely had a gun).

With the hundreds of types of chritians like baptists or Roman catholic the bible can’t be taken 100 percent literally because you can take any verse and apply any definition because it isn’t that clear when you translate it from an old language and it leaves errors or contridictions either by the translation or that it was flawed to start with.

This is why all Christians are fundamentally wrong if they are not reading the original transcripts in Hebraic and Greek.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Creation vs. Evolution

My argument is that, if your assumption is valid (it’s not under Occam’s Razor – and that everybody agrees is extremely logical), then the assumption that the Sun is, in fact, cold – and that your neighbor is Hitler – are also completely valid.
I would say they are not, I would also think you are a complete retard for thinking so since you have ZERO evidence. Do you hear me? ZERO. ZERO. ZERO. ZERO. ZERO. ZERO. ZERO.
But yeah, sure, maybe that’s like, my opinion. Maybe it’s completely fine to assume I’m actually Jesus Christ on a mission to troll people into thinking I’m not really a deity.

What I’m saying is that employers that need strong workers won’t choose women merely because they aren’t strong, not because they are sexist. My comment has no relevance, but I just wanted to throw that 100% objectively correct idea out.

It has some level of truth to it.

And I think not even that, my fellow SDer. Even though women might not be fit for heavy labor, they have the same mental capabilities as us, even if someone may consider them more emotional – it’s still no excuse to say that they can’t be scholars, professors, scientists, medics, lawyers… They should be free to do anything, even heavy labor, however the problem there is who would hire them – but not because the employers are sexist, but rather because they know women wouldn’t be as capable even if they were logical geniuses. :P

To claim something is HOT, you need to measure its TEMPERATURE.

And we did. We measured that here in Earth (so so far away from the Sun) it measures about 30ºC, for example. We’re so far away from the Sun, and yet it’s still that hot in here. We have a LOT of evidence that the Sun is hot, yet they could all be considered indirect evidence, because we haven’t actually been ON the Sun with a thermostat to measure it there. To claim all that evidence is not enough is stupid.
It’s exactly what you’re doing with Evolution.

(If you can’t understand what time machine means, I can’t help you.)

I do. But you can’t understand that the fact that we weren’t there to see it doesn’t mean we can’t claim we know it’s true.
Example:

  • Me: Hey, the Sun is hot!
  • You: No. Have you measured its temperature with a thermostat?
  • Me: What? No, but holy shit how can you even doubt that [[then I proceed to make dozens of logical arguments]]
  • You: If you can’t understand what thermostat means, I can’t help you.

Looks pretty stupid, doesn’t it? Exactly.

I assume both are equal

This is your problem. Both AREN’T equal. Seriously, the B option has a chance of perhaps one over a googolplex. (1/10^10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000)
Using your logic it is valid to think that the Earth is flat (maybe everything was manipulated and the horizon is merely an optical illusion, and going around the world with a plane works because at the borders of Earth there is a teleporter (etc.)), it is valid to think that the Sun is cold, it’s valid to think that the world was created to look old, it’s valid to think that the sun orbits around the Earth, it’s valid to think the Higgs Boson doesn’t exist, it’s valid to think everybody but you is actually a robot, it’s valid to think your neighbor is actually Hitler (who found the immortal fountain and made a few plastic surgeries), it’s valid to think toys talk with each other when we aren’t looking (and they have magical knowledge of whether there is a camera in the room), ANYTHING is OK.
In fact, it’s valid to think that your computer is going to explode as soon as you finish reading this. Are you scared now? Why don’t you run away? I’m going to make this post a little bit longer so you have chance to run away. Are you still there? Please tell me you’re not. Occam’s Razor is not valid, of course not. Oh wait, you are? Why? BOOM! Tee hee :DDD

Occam’s Razor is an extremely logical ideology. If you saw a trashcan on a school and a paper ball on the ground next to it – and you HAD to make a choice from two options – would you choose:

  • A) Someone threw the ball and missed the trashcan
  • B) All of the trash can’s atoms moved 40cm to the right with exact perfection at the same time
    Hmmm, I think it’s pretty obvious that you’d choose B. And that’s why all of us think you’re pretty stupid.

It is much more believable and less fantastic that the world and the universe ARE indeed very old than that it was created already looking very old, because the latter requires an assumption.
Example: It is much more believable and less fantastic that the Sun is very hot than that it is cold, but emits special radiation that heats other stuff after a few miles, because the latter requires an assumption.
Example 2: It is much more believable and less fantastic that gravity is due to mass compressing time and space than that it only looks that way, but it are in fact magical elves with strings that pull things down, because the latter requires an assumption.

He says that a woman having an education is harmful to the country. If the country was governed by him, women would suffer a horrible loss of freedom. (Yes, even less than they have as of now).

Jesus appeared to over 40 of people after becoming a zombie (according to the fairy tales), there’s also that. Along with performing shitty miracles and “curing” people all over his villages. Oh, yes, he also told people that demons cause diseases (Louis Pasteur hates Jesus).

But he can, can’t he? That’s my point. Claming God is unprovable is only valid if you’ve proven that He, if existent, wouldn’t prove himself to us. Then THAT God becomes unprovable – but that’s YOUR God, and the world doesn’t run around you. :DDD

Brainwashed is the idea that God made the world LOOK as if it was old. This idea comes from the desperation of not having your God and your idea of a Young Earth proven false – YOU are the brainwashed. Sorry kid.

and yet their views on women mirror those to be found in the New testament

Because of the big impact religion had in the world. Eradicating religion is the step forward.

This may be of interest to you.

Fuck that link. That’s their speech – however their actions do not reflect this speech. It’s like me claiming Evangelics love shrimp and you point me to that Leviticus chapter where it makes shrimp abominable, thus they do not love shrimp. This is simply not the case.
