I’m a bit confused

Published August 14th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

I’m a bit confused about this website, and maybe someone would kindly enlighten me… Why take so much trouble to try and dismantle fundamental Christianity if you all sincerely disbelieve it?

I wonder why this whole movement feels like they’re so threatened by Jesus if he’s not real.

    Sorry Cato,

    I don’t think you read much of the website. Most of the point is not about dissing any particular religion. It’s about having some fun and challenging those who come seeking to consider what makes sense and what doesn’t. You were obviously interested, at least a tiny bit curious, as you navigated your way here. Spend a little time. We don’t bite (except on the yummy noodles) and we don’t hate you for being curious or confused. Read on. And may you be touched by his noodly appendage, or not.

    We aren’t threatened by Jesus; we’re threatened by people who think that they can speak for him, and who are saying that we should have to listen. Jesus was a great guy, if a little unrealistic (try turning the other cheek to, say, Hitler). But that’s as far as it goes. He’s not a god, and our government and our schools should not be compromised based on some people’s interpretation of the teachings of a nice but naive man who died two thousand years ago.

    Firstly it was created to keep ID out of school science classes. We want our kids to be educated and not taught fairy tales as fact.
    Now it’s grown and all a bit of a laugh really.
    Also who wouldn’t want to join a religion that has a beer volcano and stripper factory?
    Think I should put my order in now for a Ben Cousins stripper (minus silly tattoo of course)?

    Also this ‘concerned criticism has no profanties… it might be a fake. hehe

    Happy Friday everybody!

    This is the oldest one in the book. Any group trying to change the status quo must feel threatened because deep down, they know the status quo is correct and right and just? Yeah, no.

    The reason we “take so much trouble to.. dismantle fundamental Christianity” (not try) is because a significant chunk of the population in this country still believes this nonsense, and not only do they still believe it, but they think their beliefs should be raised up above all others and respected and revered and taught in public schools like legitimate science.

    If Christians stopped meddling in public affairs and science education, and stopped trying to make everyone else conform to their moral code, I think you’d find the vocal opposition would immediately simmer down. There aren’t massive volumes of people who are outspoken against individuals who feel that the moon landing was hoaxed, because those people tend to keep their conspiracy theories to themselves and don’t try to base public policy on them.

    Throughout history, people have been killed and oppressed in the name of ideas which were wrong or pure fancy. A concept doesn’t have to be true or sound to be dangerous; in fact, incorrect beliefs backed up by quackery and lies tend to be very, very detrimental to humanity.

    We don’t want to dismantle fundamental Christianity. It’s just that Christianity wants their version of the Intelligent Design taught in schools as an alternative to the theory of evolution. We pastafarians just want out version to be taught as well.

    May His Noodly appendage touch those young minds.

    We say nothing about jesus. We just don’t believe the story.
    All we do is say that when ID is taught in schools – our ID theory should be taught also.
    We respect christianity – just as you should respect our religion.

    Religion is a serious threat to any kind of social stability. It’s a very evil aberration and needs opposition. That’s why.

      Now, I wouldn’t go that far. The moral ideas put forth by religion probably have kept most of humanity from killing each other. When one religion says, “my version oh (the) god(s) is better than and more correct than yours.” That the problems arise. The whole higher power thing is kind of just to give you a bit of an inclination not to murder your neighbor and steal his wife.

      • TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

        Now, I wouldn’t go that far to say “religion probably have kept most of humanity from killing each other.” I’d say it was self-interest. It benefits a society more to create allies than have an enslaved, disgruntled populace to administer. I’d say morality and religion are separate, and that religion has been the CAUSE of more killings than any other one factor.
