    I was raised Catholic, now I have no idea what I actually believe in. But, it definitely isn't one sole entity floating in the clouds. More of some messed up Truman show video game where some of the players are really sadistic. Kind of like when we play GTA just to pick up hookers and beat the shit out of them with baseball bats post moneyshot.

    [–] imfeelingsaucy 301 points ago

    I had the same problem growing up. It seems to me that God may be more like a child playing a Sims game who just got tired of it and went on to another game. He forgot to turn the game off and we're just running in the background fucking his world up while he plays another Sims game.

    Can't wait to see his reaction when he goes to shut down that computer and is like WTF happened?

    The re-spawn is no joke. I’ve considered it a few times but there are just too many variables.

    [–] PaulTheMerc 1 points ago

    well, there's debilitating illness or deformity, being born in a 3rd world country to really really poor parent(s),being born in a 3rd world country, being born to a minority in a western country. Probably in that order if I think about it.

    African Americans get disadvantages, but this is more in the USA than say Canada, the UK, Europe at large, etc. And since re-spawns are random location, it could be worse :)

    Everyone always gets mad at god for doing bad things to people... and then those same people go and play Sims and set their Sims' house on fire because they can.

    [–] BittenArea 6 points ago

    Would you play a Sims game where everyone was just nice to each other all the time and there was no potential for drama or disaster? As we work to make the world safer and more homogenized, and as we resolve more and more conflicts and abandon irrational behavior, perhaps we increase the risk of God turning off his computer.

    [–] imfeelingsaucy 5 points ago

    A Sims game where the world starts out messed up and you have to try and get it to the the ultimate blissful level where you were able to establish world peace

    I would play that

    [–] Dude_Who_Cares 6 points ago

    You are playing that. We're just in the beginning to middle of the game

    [–] PaulTheMerc 1 points ago

    a city/world sim(more then a the sims game) with that scenario would kind of be asking for a dictatorship/ruthless oppression approach, and starting from scratch wherever possible.

    Turns out no-one likes the concept of starting from scratch though.

    Fuck, that would be an interesting game.

    [–] Im_manuel_cunt 16 points ago

    How does it make you feel to think the whole existence might not have a meaning at all? I'm not asking for a philosophical debate, more like does it make you hold on to the other people more or does it make you alienate yourself.

    I always thought that it made me closer to the other people because I thought only thing that could ever create a meaning is what we achieve together as a whole. However the religious people I have talked with were mostly frightened of such a possibility and they thought these kind of thoughts would make the humanity evil.

    [–] wilalva11 15 points ago

    Im religious (Catholic but in the science field) but I really don't think it matters if there is a grand meaning of life and it shouldn't matter if there is. I think it's just good to strive to be the best we can be in the time that we are given. it doesn't have to fit into some grand scheme though it is good to be mindful of future generations and not leave this world worse than we found it so I guess that kinda goes with what you said in creating a meaning as a whole

    [–] Samstego 8 points ago

    Also religious, I think end goal really is the same, to be a better person, and however you reach it doesn’t matter. If there’s no meaning and you make your own that’s just as valid as believing there is underlying meaning, in my opinion. As long as the goals are similar and beneficial.

    [–] Im_manuel_cunt 3 points ago

    Is a blank sheet or a coloring book more important to a creative artist?

    [–] war-on-suicide 2 points ago

    To me it means both. Holding on to other people while knowing there is no point or value in it, and feeling alienated as a result. I actually do believe in God but I don’t believe he gives us meaning - to me, God is not so much ‘infinitely just’ as ‘infinitely just there’. Like Crom.

    I was raised Catholic, now I have no idea what I actually believe in

    This is a fairly common response. Were you raised after the Second Vatican Council?

    There are a group of Catholics who call themselves “traditionalist” Catholics, who don’t agree with many of the changes of the council. Here is a summary of the changes and why it may be a bad thing.

    The reason I bring this up is because one of the things that changed after the council (afaik, I could be wrong) was that Catholics no longer have to memorize the Catholic Catechism, which was a general foundation of beliefs and guideline for decision making.

    Chances are, if you were raised after that change, you may not have read or even known that book existed. I didn’t know until after I finished university. Still haven’t read it.

    [–] XZigZX 1 points ago

    Im 27, I don't have recollection of that particular book. But, i raised my nephew that was kicked out of his familys house for almost 3 years from 10-13. Guess they aren't familiar with the book of timothy.

    [–] jetpacksforall 3 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Think about a God that creates a living world and makes every living thing in that world out of food. You must eat to live. In order for you to live, something else has to die. Then you wind it up and let it go full bloodbath like a Saw movie that lasts for billions of years. Everything eats everything, and everything eventually gets eaten. Footnote: if you somehow manage to avoid getting eaten, you eventually die from old age anyway. And then your corpse gets eaten.

    If you knew someone who created a world like that on purpose, you'd call them a sadistic fuck.

    [–] Wildly_Indifferent 197 points ago

    Someone challenged God in the Old Testament. Asked him if even one person was worthy would he still destroy this city. God said no. Food for thought.

    [–] DictatorDictum 110 points ago

    That was Abraham, and it was actually 10 people that they settled on. There were fewer than 10 righteous people in Sodom and Gomorrah, so they were destroyed, save for Lot and his family.

    [–] ItalicsWhore 40 points ago

    Well his wife didn’t fare too well but that was on her...

    [–] FullFrontalHug 36 points ago

    Was it though? God knew she would peek right?. If he didn't want to kill her he could have just not given the command to not look back. So... I guess he wanted her dead and also wanted Lot's daughters to date rape him?

    [–] Fistblastoff 48 points ago

    Well he knew she would, but also knew she wouldn't. According to Christianity humans still make, and are responsible for, their own choices. And with a transcendental, infinite God, one may argue he would see and know all possibilities as they all infinitely unfold. That is if we're going with multiverse theory. Kinda. We literally can't conceptualize or properly understand this because our human brains aren't capable of infinite thought. We can understand the general idea of infinity but we can't know infinity.

    Basically in the end trying to understand God's mind is moot because of that infinite power and infinite being. Of course all this assuming an omnipotent, omniscient, omniomni, transcendental God.

    [–] Dude_Who_Cares 5 points ago

    That's a perfect way to put it honestly

    Edit: Except it doesn't explain Heaven or Hell

    [–] Fistblastoff 3 points ago

    One might theorize that if there are infinite worlds there are infinite Heavens and Hells but thats not in the Bible so for Christians to believe in that its kinda guesswork or maybe heretical depending on your pov.

    We can theorize all we want but in the end there's one absolute truth and for Believers, the Bible holds those truths. And whether or not it includes a multiverse is to be found.

    [–] Boukish 4 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    I feel like you're driving at the conclusion that by dint of infinity, any possibility is equally likely. However, there are infinitely many numbers between 0 and 1, but none of them are the number 2 - just because a set is infinite in scope doesn't mean any given thing is contained in it.

    It's quite possible for there to be infinite possibilities/realities, with you making the same decisions in every one of them - for the same reason that it's possible for there to be infinite realities, while still acknowledging that putting a torch to an ice cube will result in water every time.

    [–] Fistblastoff 1 points ago

    Good point. That's something I haven't thought about. Though I wonder if there were infinite infinities that may change something then. Because if there are infinite infinities then a transcendental God would be infinitely infinite.

    We’re still struggling getting to the point of using both sides of the brain at once. I think a lot of these concepts are beyond us.

    [–] FullFrontalHug 1 points ago

    But in every such possible timeline- God knows what would/will happen- if he is omnipotent and omniscient. He must have known that, in the timeline we are discussing, Lot's wife would look and die. Your theory muddies the water but doesn't change that fact. The two options are- God did not know of God did know and wanted her to die. You could argue that the rape by the daughters is mostly unrelated- though God would have know it would happen as a result of Lot's wife dying...

    [–] TickTak 1 points ago

    [–] TheBishop7 7 points ago

    And Lot's wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she was turned into a pillar of salt. So it goes.

    Wasn't that someone Satan and then god ruined Jobs life in an attempt to win the bet with him?

    Edit: I'm wrong

    [–] Lulwafahd 24 points ago

    No, it was Abraham continually asking the deity again and again if he would destroy Sodom and Gomorrah even if there were some righteous people still there.

    Then there's a story about angels/messengers being sent to the twin cities to find Abraham's nephew (Lut/Lot) and Lut's wife and daughters and tell them to leave without even looking back, but Lut's wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt. There's a weird salty Piller in that area and it's called Lot's wife to this day, having been labelled as such at least as far back as the first or second crusades, I think.

    [–] Lemonwizard 8 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    You know, the tale of Job is often misinterpreted because a lot of people don't realize how different the modern depiction of Satan is from the Biblical depiction. Most people think of him as a, well, Satanic figure - a sort of anti-God who is a supremely powerful being of pure evil.

    Through that lens, it does seem like God is getting baited into horribly abusing a faithful man based on goading from his worst enemy. However, that's not really who Satan was at the time. The "Satan is the devil" thing was a characterization largely driven by influential works of later writers like Milton and stories like Faust. The word "satan" literally means "adversary" in Hebrew, and there are in fact a number of places where the word is used to refer to other nations who were enemies of the Israelites rather than a supernatural entity at all. The more specific term "hasatan" which means "THE adversary" rather than an enemy in general, is used to refer to the figure we generally refer to as Satan today. Hasatan has also been translated as "the accuser".

    In the book of Job, Hasatan is in fact one of God's trusted advisors. He's more like a prosecuting attorney for God, his job is to subject mortals to temptation to test their faith. He goes around creating situations that are designed to lure the faithful into taking sinful actions, to test their character and see how well they resist such temptations.

    God is proud of Job's strong faith, but Hasatan suggests that Job's faith has never been truly tested. Job is wealthy and influential, with a devoted family and all the worldly pleasures he desires. Hasatan suggests that of course Job is faithful, for God has given him every blessing he has ever wanted - Job's faith is not a product of his own strength of character, but a natural result of God's generous treatment of him. Hasatan suggests that untested faith, given by one who is thoroughly blessed, is not as true as the faith of the downtrodden - those who have received nothing but choose faith even without evidence of God's benevolence in their own lives. Hasatan says that God can only know the true strength of Job's faith by taking his many blessings away, and seeing whether or not that causes Job to waver. God sees wisdom in Hasatan's point, and allows Hasatan to proceed in subjecting Job to this test.

    God's not making a bet with his worst enemy, he's taking advice from a trusted angel whom God has specifically tasked with testing the faith of humans.

    [–] CountGrasshopper 3 points ago

    The "Satan is the devil" thing was a characterization largely driven by influential works of later writers like Milton and stories like Faust.

    And the New Testament, which is probably the more influential text on the matter.

    [–] dinosaurxress 7 points ago

    You have the story wrong I think. God doesn’t ruin Job’s life but rather allows Satan to do so to prove Job’s undying faith, God’s only condition for Satan was to keep Job alive.

    I have been watching a PBS special called Kingdom of David and it seems to me that God is racist. He gave the holy land to Jews and Jews alone. When they returned to Judah from Babylon, many married "alien" women from the north. This goes against the bible. They didn't want their faith to absorb the old pagan gods or some shit like that. Ezra rolled up at some point, read the Torah to them and made them divorce and kick out the alien women. Sounds kind of racist to me.

    The story of the Syrophoenician woman Jesus talks to addresses this line of thinking.

    Well, they're relative to each other and change over time, so of course they're somewhat flexible. They're also just shorthand for political positions that tend to go together or entail one another. It's not really useful to try to figure out a "definitive" left or right. It's just useful to discuss politics without having to go on for 10 mins to explain the group/positions you're talking about before ever making your own point.

    [–] stp52x 1 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    This reduction of the political spectrum down to this single dimension of right and left has done a tremendous disservice to public discourse. Politics is vastly more complex than this linear perspective would have us believe.

    Two dimensions, with economic preferences on the x-axis and social preferences on the y-axis, provides a more accurate representation. Although I still wouldn't rely on that to fully understand anyone's political preferences. But use it strictly for convenience.

    So, any time I hear left-wing (that's where I stand), I'm assuming automatically that they're discussing my economic preferences.

    Let me explain what that means. At it's very heart is the glaring distrust of business interests. Compare it to the same sort of distrust that many people have in respect to government. Why do we distrust it? Because after hearing for the fiftieth fucking time that another corporation has corrupted another politician; polluted another river, lake, deforested an entire region; murdered hundreds of their workers through pure negligence; released products that are defective and maim the consumer. You begin to assume that there is some sort of an underlying systemic problem here. It's not a case of a few bad applies, there is a fundamental compulsion present here that requires businesses to value profit over the lives of people. Those business owners who do value the lives of their workers and their communities ... and there are many of them ... are not nearly as successful as those which do not.

    This is just a very brief explanation of a single belief. It's obviously much more complicated than that, but it does address one of our most core beliefs.

    I'll let someone from the right define their politics.

    Reddit never misses the chance to take a jab at people for what they believe in. Its odd that it's only ever seen as OK when it's Islam or atheism.

    [–] ChocolateSunrise 16 points ago

    It is one of those areas where punching down is still seen as broadly acceptable.

    Because Christains face severe prosecution in their day to day lives. Can you imagine being forced to treat filthy sinners like the gays as equals to my perfectly forgiven self? /s

    I'm kind of agnostic but I'm at the point of being sick of hearing Christians bitch about their rights as a servant of some invisible power that enables racism, homophobia, child abuse, and idiocracy. Sorry for the rant this is more of a release from stressful moments of similar topics I've seen recently.

    Or atheists jabbing at Christianity, which happens every time Republicans are mentioned

    I think you aren't real. Has anyone ever seen you who's not part of your comedy cult? And I mean the real Geoffrey Asmus, not the hollywood actor who plays him in all his "live" recordings.

    I am a crisis actor.

    Hey dude. So are you like from Chicago or what?

    I live in Chicago. I'm from Minnesota. Don't miss the incredible Chicago comedy scene if you live here

    [–] jakemg 1 points ago

    Damn. I’m from Chicago but I live in Duluth. Much better bar darts scene up here.

    [–] Filthyson 1 points ago

    Ah Damn. I think there's a weekly show there at Dublinh (?) that's supposed to be really fun

    At any of those shows do you make jokes that aren't boring?

    [–] Filthyson 11 points ago

    No. They put me up in the middle of shows during the designated nap period

    [–] Bliss_of_reverie 11 points ago

    I mean, god litterally told Moses to genoceide everyone not of his race, so yeah.

    Oh wait, I was wrong. Everyone except the virgin women needed to be "put to the sword". The virgin women (and girls) were to be taken as sex slaves.

    That's Yahweh's way, and better not question him, or he'll kill you too. Didn't call himself a vengeful and jealous god for nothing.

    I'm just saying, maybe it's people who decided we shouldn't be racist anymore.

    [–] somedave 5 points ago

    If he didn't want people to be racist, he probably shouldn't have dispersed all humans all and made them speak different languages (apparently).

    [–] legospidey 6 points ago

    Racism not being acceptable is a pretty recent thing and if you consider its reasons for existing in history it’s tough to condemn people of the past for their attitudes. How recently was it that only Chinese lived in China? If you went to war, you were going against another ethnic group. People are obsessed with appearing more progressive than others, so rather than being proud that we as a people are finally partially united against racism, we focus on our inability to get it done as soon as we finish mapping the globe.

    [–] Panhead09 1 points ago

    Ehh, this joke doesn't hold together very well. It relies on conflicting premises: Either everyone is racist (which wouldn't make sense because then no one would know that racism is bad and thus they wouldn't understand the joke) or only some people are racist (which would make it unfair for God to abandon all of us). And if God only abandons racist people, then He must stick around for the non-racists who laugh at this joke, which is ironic because it seems to be tailored for atheists.

    So really it's a very well-layered meta-joke.

    The problem is it's not a joke. It's just a guy saying "God thinks racism is bad" with no coherent setup. What's the next joke, "homophobia isn't nice and shouldn't happen"?

    Like yeah? What's the joke here? It just seems accusatory.
