    pron=bible?

    I was at my house the other day when my mom came in and said "did you hear about what they were doing at utsa today?!"

    No, i didn't, i was going to my classes like a normal student. Anyway, apperantly the Atheist league or w/e was trading playboy for bibles.

    So i looked up why they were doing it and apperantly their reasoning was the bible had stories about mistreated women, so does porn, we'll trade you. Oh and that there was pornagraphic content.

    Now I don't give a shit about what the bible had to say, i was offended by the porn mistreats women part. Thats bullshit.

    Ok anyway, I also wondered what they hoped to accomplish...its not like taking away a bible would make any real difference. And certainly their point in itself was silly, i mean anyone knows that text-porn and picture-porn are totally different things.

    Smut for Smut is what it's called. They've been doing this for a while, bible sex stories are much more fucked up then anything playboy can legally put in their magazines. This is more for publicity then actually trying to lower the number of bibles, that's a hopeless endeavor.

    Ah thats what they called it. Anyway, i just thought it hilarious. Because anything the bible says is just text in the end.

    And it sure got the dumbasses to go around singing christian songs and shit.(god thats embarrasing, they can't sing for shit).

    All in all, I find this pretty funny.

    That's why the generalization "Christians are idiots." is true.

    I would disagree, I know some very intelligent Christians,
    "Smart people believe weird things because they are skilled at defending beliefs they arrived at for non-smart reasons". The reason some intelligent people can defend silly beliefs is because they compartmentalize their beliefs from their rational analysis. A good example is Francis Collins, head of the Human Genome Project. He's a very intelligent man, he just believes that if he believes in Jesus he'll go to heaven, of course he's not a fundamentalists, he supports evolutionary theory and is quoted to have called Intelligent Design: "just ludicrous." None of us are perfectly rational, none of us hold beliefs that are all true. All we can hope is that we manage to believe less false things and accept more true things.

    You presented a generalization, then asserted it was true.

    Ex. That's why the generalization "All black men rape white women." Is true.
    All black men rape white women.

    Saying it's a generalization does nothing for you if you assert that the generalization is valid.

    Lol. Well, it's a strange way to make a point, but I agree with it.

    The difference being: Most Christians don't read the bible, and thus it's more appropriate for them to have the bible then it is for them to have a pornographic magazine. Also, it's illegal for a major to give pornographic content to a minor.

    Lastly, porn generally doesn't have a moral\theme behind it. While the stories in the bible do(however fucked up they may be).

    Either way, I doubt any of us have actually read the damn thing, so who are we to make arguments based off of another's biased opinion towards the bible.



    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    I've gone through the bible twice, since I've become an atheist I've only cracked it open to find verses that I can use to support my case.
