Thats not fair...
Nick KontogourisAuthor
And what's your sense of fairness?
Nick KontogourisAuthor
Unfortunately most likely is.

Nick Kontogouris, a lot of cases. What does being taught to love thinking and believing in no God's have to do with each other?
Maddigan
Because the people who claim to be awake can only think about other people's religions.

Arrogant. Narrow-minded. Offensive. Why does Nick post this? How does he feel when thinking about all the religious people that might read it?
Nick KontogourisAuthor
Why its offensive? Or arrogant and everything else?

Nick Kontogouris, if you want to be that asshole be that asshole I suppose.
Mich Millner (puhn)
So you mean religious people need an extra comfort zone?
ColorEffects
Mich Millner, just an asshole thing to do. Anyways I'm off.
Mich Millner (puhn)
ColorEffects, thanks

Thats not always the case, the reason for someone to believe or not in a god isn't always because the person was taught by its parents. I was taught to believe in jesus, but I became an atheist later on, this kind of stuff happens all the time, and vice-versa: I can teach my kid to love thinking, and he/she can become religious later on. Of course, cases like the ones in the picture can happen, and also happen a lot, but it's too close-minded to think that it will always happens like that
Nick KontogourisAuthor
If you had to bet at a kid who raised by a/b/c religious family what would be your bet? What religion the kid most likely will follow?
Judgement[vapegod]
Nick Kontogouris, it would be likely to follow to religion that was taught by its family Yes, it is very likely to happen, but it won't happen all the time, there will be exceptions. That's the whole point of my comment above: Yes, it's much likely to follow what was taught by its parents, but that doesn't mean that it will *always* be like that
Nick KontogourisAuthor
Judgement, we agree on that.

It comes close when we don't allow kids to take their choice them selfs when they are old enough.

Posted memes because it's easier than critical thought and reasoning.

I was raised in a Mormon household. I continue to be Mormon not because I don't think, but because I have. (not to imply that others don't think.)
Nick KontogourisAuthor
So you raised but you're not because you raised as but because you think the way they taught you! And all that you think makes sense to you?
Hanover Fiste
While it's true that people tend to be the same religion and political affiliation as their parents, I encourage everyone to question their upbringing. Most people do in America and Western civilization. It's a part of our Western culture to question tradition and authority.

I was an atheist for most of my life so far, I no longer am. I see that more unbiased knowledge is great, but religion also has it's upsides. Sadly, religion also has it's downsides. The human race is a sad one.
Mich Millner (puhn)
Lol why are we sad one's? Just because you feel like that?
Hanover Fiste
I'm not sad...Are you?
Theo
Hanover Fiste, Not talking about individuals, I mean as a race.
Hanover Fiste
Theo, but you're saying we all share one emotion. We don't.
Theo
Hanover Fiste, No I'm not lol, nevermind. Never had a way with words.
Hanover Fiste
Theo, lol 👍

Not really though. For starters I'm an athiest and a asshole but I was raised christian.
Abdulhadi
The real name of God is Allah.
José Zueco...™
It's the translation...
Riesenrad-Dieb
José Zueco...™, is the real Name of God Allah?
José Zueco...™
Riesenrad-Dieb, Allah is God in Arabic like deus in Latin...
José Zueco...™
Nick Kontogouris, dictionaries... θεός= الله =God
Nick KontogourisAuthor
José Zueco...™, oh read it wrongly. You were saying Allah means God in Arabic. Yes that's true of course.
Abdulhadi
Nick Kontogouris, Christian Arab call God Allah also the Jews call God Allah too here in Middle East.
Argh
Nick, you just got your special place in my heart. Thanks for the post.
aaark
The person that admits there's no way for us to perceive a concept as big as "god" is the true thinker.
Argh
So you believe in god?
aaark
I'm agnostic. I don't believe there's any way for us to truly know. I find virtually every argument for or against God to be narrow-minded.
Mich Millner (puhn)
aaark, haha what a great mind😂
aaark
Mich Millner, 🤘
Nick KontogourisAuthor
aaark, still, probabilities of a Bible like god exists is overwhelming against.
Abdulhadi
aaark, there is no sin after blasphemy
aaark
Nick Kontogouris, the God that I believe exists isn't anything like modern religion. If it is all good like the bible says, it cannot be all powerful because clearly evil exists. But I believe in the duality of God sort of like the yin yang. It allows the good and the bad because you wouldn't be able to know either without the other. And if it is omnipotent and omniscient, while being responsible for the good and the bad, God would be at its most finite and infinite, a set of laws that governs the very universe itself.
aaark
Abdulhadi, nothing I have said is blasphemy.
Mich Millner (puhn)
Abdulhadi, sin is nothing real
God.
I don't believe in God. I lost faith when I created humanity.
Nick KontogourisAuthor
Since then you started conflicted with yourself!
God.
