I'm a Christian and I just kind of hate it when atheists just go out spewing all their ignorant comments. I mean, they probably have never picked up a Bible in their life and they think they know everything...


Keep in mind most atheists were Christians or religious but converted either because they didn't like it or didn't care, or because they've been through too many hardships in life for them to believe in that kind of thing anymore.

My brother was a Christian but had an insanely rough life growing up and still kind of does and just doesn't believe in a God anymore, though he still tries to show interest around our parents. I'm kind of heading in a similar direction as him, I mean you get cancer and it's just kind of like "wtf?". Not to mention heart disease and other things, after some time it just gets hard to keep believing in what you used to. You have to put yourself in others shoes before making comments like that. I admit some atheists are like you described, kind of do it because "lol its cool, rebellion" but not everyone is like that. Like I said, I don't believe what I used to but that doesn't mean I hate God or religion or anything.


Well I didn't think of all that... I was pretty much just taking about those who have never been to Church. I seem to come across them a LOT. I wasn't even directly referring to kingtrace

I was a confirmed catholic for 15 years of my life. All I learned from mass and church school was that catholics are some of the most ignorant people i've ever met. Their whole world outlook is completely ass backwards and based on not angering some invisible all powerful boogeyman.

Seriously, who actually believes the earth is less than 10,000 years old when we have literally millions of fossil records saying otherwise? And I highly doubt that we came from the rib of some dude that talked to snakes in some sort of perfect magic wonderland where pain didn't exist.

I have no issues with the good that religion can bring out in people, but the sheer ignorance when it comes to scientific fact is mind boggling.


Religion as an ideology is perfectly fine, I can respect people who learn how to be good people from the lessons they learned from old teachings. But the people who follow the bible like it's the absolute truth are some of the most dangerous people in the world.

I get what ya mean. I kind of posted without thinking too. You were referring to those who actually don't know much about what they're saying and still continue anyways. I just don't enjoy being grouped with all the nasty atheists, makes guys like me look bad :(

Yeah that's the internet for you. From what I have seen, the internet is primarily atheists. Most (not all) of which are ignorant and atheists just for the sake of trying to be cool and edgy.

Looks like I'm not the only one who thinks it's funny to think of PaRappa as a born-again Christian.
