God Stamp by loqutor God Stamp by loqutor
My first animated stamp! :iconkermityayplz:

"Atheism is a religion for people who worship themselves instead of God." --Encyclopedia Dramatica

I have just about had it with militant atheists and their zeppelin-sized heads. I really don't have a problem with people nurturing views contrary to mine, but the minute you claim that your opinion makes you a better person than me, and that people who share my views are a bunch of ignoramuses who are stuck in the so-called "Dark Ages" and that I secretly want to burn alive and torture Muslims and Jews, you lose all the credibility you may have had before.

To clear things up, atheists are not smarter than the rest of the populace. Every single person in my church congregation over the age of 18 is either in college or a college graduate; on the other hand, I personally know at least five atheists IRL who have never set foot in a college classroom.

I recognize that a majority of atheists are not like this, but those that are really need to shut the hell up and stop pretending that they are the only people privy to the truth of life. You're making friendly, rational atheists look bad.

This is ideologically sensitive, but I won't mark it as such because I don't care if I offend people.

EDIT: Wow, I expected to get a lot of flack for this, but lo and behold, it's one of the most popular things I've ever done!

There is a standard argument over which group is more likely to rework their beliefs when new facts are learned, but yes, these are stereotypes, than do not apply to everyone; and, of course, their are plenty of highly-intelligent Theists, and below-average Atheists (I belong to neither of these groups, by the way).  I would just like to say, however, I am 37 years old, and for approximately 32 of those years, deity-minded people have approached me in what seems like all available places, whether it is a place where one would normally go for religious guidance, or whether it is a place, like this one, where people have come for other reasons, to advertise to me either how non-believers have hurt them, or to tell me that I must become a believer.  If you are hurt, I am sorry.  Of course, you just said that you don't care if YOU offend people, so you really don't have a leg to stand on, if you wish to complain.  Secondly, if people really want knowledge about your religion, they will most-likely seek it in a place set-aside for that purpose.  I will admit, trying to be the millionth person to make me convert may not be STUPID, but, trying the same thing over-and-over, and expecting different results has been defined as INSANITY.  Non-believers will tend to treat you with more respect, if you treat them likewise.

i think the meaning is fine but your description is rather biased...not rather- extremely.

You may want to rephrase some of this because I know some incredibly intelligent atheists who are also, not in college or don't plan to go to college (truth be told it's a waste of money unless you can make it back being a doctor or something) 
and on that same note i've met really stupid religious people, in and out of college who are either socially just ass holes or honestly believe every single thing in the bible to be proof with no evidence except the text itself and try to say things like the sun revolves around the earth because it's implied in said texts. 

there are smart and stupid on both ends but just because one person does or does not do one thing does not mean they are or are not intelligent.

No one said that it did/didn't. It's just that most of the people giving hate to the LGBT community, abortions, and other things are Christians. If this weren't the case, Christians wouldn't be so hated.

Most of anti-LGBT are christians and other people who are religious. 

I never said all of them did. Sure, allot of athiests hate it too (though not many compared to the amount who don't hate it) but it's mostly those who are religious.

I'm an athiest, but I don't care if your religious. Religio/or no religion doesn't make you smarter or more "holy" your actions do. 

Just dont bitch about if your an athiest or if your religious, and use it against others. That isn't right, and it makes other good open minded Christians or atheists look bad. So basically youre shooting yourself in the foot. Hilarious

I'm truly sorry. I didn't mean to, I just wanted to vent.

But your right, I should brighten up. After educating myself on both sides, I consider myself agnostic. I guess I don't know how to get my words out more correctly (but that's NO excuse for my words) and I apologize. I educated my dumb mind. I'm fine. Thanks for making me think twice

I know you weren't specifically referencing this, but something a lot of people forget is the contribution Christianity has made to science. After the fall of Rome churches preserved science and kept it going. The Vatican conducted scientific experiments, and many key scientists were believers in God.
It is both hilarious and irritating whenever atheists use my belief that the Earth is 6000 years old (a belief I didn't realize I possess, if you get what I'm saying) against me.

Thank you for the stamp.

However, believe in God isn't same with believe in Jesus as God.

God is not Jesus. God is the Creator.

God is the One God
God, the Eternal, the Absolute
God does not beget, nor was He begotten
And there is none who are His equal


The Messiah, son of Maryam. He is a honorable man.

Peace.

Though according to the Qur'an, he did start a false religion, is the "Best of deceivers," and got his facts wrong about the so-called false religion he started.

The Bible says that in the begining was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)  Jesus is the Word that became flesh, (John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
)  and the Word is God, thus Jesus and God are two in one.

In the begining was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

---> How come the Word was with God and then become the Word was God?

Jesus is the Word that became flesh ---> Hmmm.

the one and only Son, who came from the Father

---> God is not a father, because God is not human and God does not have children.


full of grace and truth. ---> The 'truth' which are very questionable for its reliability.


and the Word is God---> How come the Word is God? the Word is the Word. 

thus Jesus and God are two in one. ---> This conclusion is absurd, unreasonable.


If you truly love God, you will strongly believe and worship your Creator only, not Jesus.

Your devotion for your Creator is
still in doubt and questionable.

Peace.

Let me help you clarify that a bit more.
God IS  the Father because he created all of mankind, and is our spiritual "father".
Jesus is God; the Spirit, God the FATHER, and Jesus are all one.
If you say ( type) that the Word of God is 'absurd, unreasonable' again I will smack you with a Bible.
Peace
