Ink blots? We don't need no stinking ink blots.......OP/ED

 OP/ED

If you had not heard about the "hero" cop nicknamed "GI Joe" a couple months ago, was found dead after calling in that he was going after 3 suspects. Turned out this "hero" was really a theif who faked a murder when he was commiting suicide to avoid being caught from steeling from a charity.

 

Well this is how easy human perceptions of reality can be fooled. This is an example of how false perceptions lead to the creation of religion.  Our species evolved to gap fill, the same way other life evolved to seek patterns. The gazel on the africain plain does does not always have time to assess if the swaying grass is merely wind, or a lion hiding in wait waiting to pounce. So we gap fill, just like the default many made about this individual cop. We want to believe those we pay to protect us will do the right thing all the time, and many do, yes. But things are never always 100% of the time what we think we see.Religion is that butterfly in the inkblot. I have quoted Dawkins many times and it is still worth repeating his quote from The God Delusion in discribing this false perception as "the moth mistaking the light bulb for the moonlight".

And again, as a suplement and two complementary books by the Late Victor Stenger further confirm the dangers of false perceptions and the superflous nature of religion and god claims are "God The Failed Hypothisis" and "The New Atheism".

Nope, this is not for those I have a history of battling here on this website. You will continuiously and needlessly regergitate the same crap. I do expect you to respond yes. But this if for everyone elese who is a bi stander and may not be familure with The God Delusion or Victor Stenger. 

Break out your popcorn buckets bleecher dwellers, the three stooges are going to parrot like theists.

that's not ironic at all...

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."

 Why do you  morons

 Why do you  morons rightfully like I do blast religous claims but stop when I call it poison? You guys have been doing this since day one this website existed. Again, you idiots think this is about rights? Not my fucking argument! 

Saying tornados are natural only means they happen and you cant rid the world of them. It does not mean because you accept the reality that religion happens that it is good. It only means you work to remove the goggles religion creates and take it off it's pedestal to make life more civil. 

Religion is a posionious inkblot. It takes our natural ability for compassion an distorts it to a patent which creates the divisive tribalism humans fight over which in turn creates our natural ability to be cruel.

You tout science which is the right attitude then you know the earth is much older than humans much less the first written religion. And science also knows that in the future our planet will NOT sustain us and die and our sun as well. And we know the planet in the history of evolution has had 5 mass extinctions. So if religion is so fucking important to evolution we would expect to see dinosaur and cockroach monuments to their gods.

If our species never questioned social norms our species never would have left the caves. You fucking know that. 

There is absolutely nothing wrong with giving up on bad claims. Otherwise you would not be spending so much time in the epic thread trying to convince Fonzi he is full of shit.

The only thing you "blast" is yourself. Even when I agree with your position, your thought process for getting there is extremely tortured and couched in ignorance.

For example,

Quote:

Wtf?!?!? You demonstrate a sheer ignorance of evolution while battling a straw man with a non-sequitur. If a theist were making a parody to make fun of atheists, they would create you. 

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

Because it isn't poison you fuckwit. Oxygen fits the definition of poison infinitely better than religion, but noone calls oxygen poison. Usually anyway.

Quit labelling shit with terms that don't fit the concept and maybe you won't be the laughing stock of the species quite so absolutely. Brainless shit.

Yea, and we all know what opinions are like. Go find a fat guy to pray to. Shit, I forgot, it's complecated. 

You are all idiots. You damned well know like I do this planet is finite. You also know there was no religion 4 billion years ago. You are just fucking brats unwilling to accept that religion is a FLAW in or species perceptions. It is no more necceary than belief in Thor or Ra. Now go find me a cockroach or T Rex temple to their gods, then I will concede that evolution requires superstition. It does not, it is a result of an imperfect reality that humans have constantly had to struggle to get past.

Outside that your opinion of me doesn't ammount to a hill of beans. And again dipshit, this isn't the only website I hang out at. All you are saying is you don't like me, well no shit. On a planet of 7 billion that is going to happen. You got all butthurt when I didn't treat Buddhism as any more special than any other human invented club. Would you like me to call the whaaaaaaaambulance for you?

 "Religion is a

 "Religion is a requirement" is like saying "methedone is a requirement to fight heroine addiction".

I don't believe in any god. I don't attend any religious club. My penis still works. I can, not that I want a kid, I can still fuck and make a baby. 

Yes religion makes people feel good. But that volcano was never a god no matter how much the Hawaiians thought it was. If you want to coddle the insecurities of humanity you can. I think our species can do far better to give up on antiquated bullshit. 

"It's pretty", "People like it", "Its a traditioin" are not fucking arguments. Onlly an idiot would think the planet or universe gives one rat's ass about our comic book myths our species invents. When someone claims "I need my religion", I am not doubting they truely believe it is nescessary. I do doubt their perception of reality. To me it would be the same if I had a friend who went arround saying "I really need to believe the Yankees won the Superbowl". 

I am not going to stop anyone from making any bullshit cliam they want. But religion is not required for evolution ot occur. Grass doesn't have a god, neither does bacteria. Our planet has had 5 mass extinctions, and after our species goes extinct, which it will, there will be no record of the bullshit humans invent to ignore their finite existence. 

If you want to coddle human insecurities you can. I refuse. Remember your hypocrisy when you go after Fonzie. I am not doing anything differenty, other than say being more blunt with my language.

Laughable is you thinking this is a popularlity contest. Laughable is you stupidly thinking everyone is on your side and everyone hates me. 

Now for the ADD aflicted like you. I don't give one fuck that you don't like me. On a planet of  7 billion that is to be expected. 

I am most certianly no Carol Sagan, I am brain dead compaired to him. But I do agree with him in that this is it. I do agree that freind and foe alike all meet the same fate. So really the only difference would be my word choice. 

So stop being a fucking petulent brat because someone used blunt words. There is no law forcing you to like me or me to like you. Get the fuck over yourself. What we do have is one planet, and I think non violence is far more important than getting buthurt over who likes who or cuss words.

i thought i got butthurt over "bobgate." get your story straight. the only thing that irritates me about you and buddhism--and every other religion, and marxism, and my own thoughts and motivations--is that you know nothing about it yet keep pretending you do.


oh, and the "fat guy" is taoist, dipshit. it's not complicated. you're just simple-minded.

Brian is completely clueless. If this were a popularity contest he'd be relegated to the basement, because nobody likes him.

Of course popularity has nothing to do with the subject, so this is just Brian trying desperately to switch subjects to avoid getting his ass handed to him.

7 billion people can tell Brian DOES give a fuck, as he wouldn't repeat this claim 7 billion times if he really didn't give a fuck.
