Creationism... by Guyverman Creationism... by Guyverman
Greetings, I wish to present a stamp I just made. I only wish to express disagreement. I find this a sombre personal subject and have wheeped several times in shame because of what you will eventually read in the second half of these comments.

For all my life, I've been raised in a non-religious environment and thus, I am 100% secular and dwelt into science rather than the ever-popular superstition that a deity(s) exists. As a result, I am a firm ATHEIST and personally consider religion in general a leftover from the era before we had today's knowledge and technology to independently make theories and observations of our own to discover the mountain ranges worth of evidence against such a theory that there is a magical man in the sky performing everything we see and experience in life.

It is true that individual messages on how to be a proper neighbor in holy books such as the Bible and Koran are very heartfelt. But to me, the actual stories found within them as simply fairy tales and If anyone chooses to believe in God, good for them, but how does if differ from believing in fairies, unicorns, dragons, gnomes and mermaids? Also, if you're going to believe that the Earth was created in 6 days, then I'm afraid that you might as well believe that the Earth is still flat and that the sun revolves around it.

In addition to the tidal waves of mysticism people let themselves be absorbed by until this very day, Religion, especially the Abrahamic ones, such as Christianity have been the source of more hypocrisy and harm than beneficial among us humans in the past 2000 years. Even today, there are poor young souls facing blindfolded manipulation by their superiors to hate and condemn everything beyond what can be explained by them, or within various out-dated texts and questions are forbidden. As a result, sinful horrors have been frequently performed in which names like God, Jesus Christ and Muhammad's have been used in order to justify as most feeble excuses. Because of the long period of time combined number of things that have happened along with the caliber of their immorality, the aforementioned named have been tainted beyond redemption in my eyes.

Notable examples are :

1. The Witch Hunt which killed more than even The Holocaust.
2. The Crusades performed upon the Muslims by arrogant Knights and Bishops. If The Crusades never occurred, the Muslim world may not have eventually devolved into the wreckage it is today.
3. The cruel injustices performed on the wise and progressive scientific minds of the Renaissance era like Galileo who simply wanted to question the way things were.
4 The Vile Spanish Inquisition which not only terrorized and slaughtered non-believers in Europe, but wiped out entire indigenous races within the Americas all in the name of God. This loathsome faction is deemed by many as the precursors to Hitler and his Nazi scum.
5. The Indian Residential schools within Canada, in which youths were forcefully taken from their loving parents to be assimilated into the European way of life. Murders, Molestation and Starvation was endured by the poor students in which the Church needed to take full responsibility for the infliction.
6. It is used to justify pure prejudice. Because of this, we still see a titanic prosecution and delay of civil rights and equality of women, homosexuals, non-married couples, atheists like myself and even religions by other religions that excruciatingly drags on to this day tragically.
7. The smite of inability to separate faith and state in Muslim countries and vengeful terrorism by madmen from the Taliban and Al Qaeda who possess a sickening obsession for the Koran until they are driven mad and value Allah over their fellow man.
8. India's caste system which although is legally no-longer existent nor does it have any connection with the Abrahamic faiths, still thrives strongly due to superstition spawned by the Hinduism and Sikhism majority. The poor are deemed sub-human all because of this.
9. As many good Christians that I admit there are in this world, Christianity is simply to much of a fear-based and miracle-driven religion in mainstream society that values faith a little more exclusively than it should. Even true Islam promotes a rich variety of activities and more freedom of thought such as secularism and seeking (along with preserving) knowledge, which allowed science to survive past the Dark ages of Europe.

If there really someone like God or Jesus Christ, why would they allow all these things to be occur in their name and why do they not immediately intervene?

It is inevitable everyone. Just like the Greek pantheon before it, the sagas of the Bible, Koran, Torah and possibly even the Hindu Gods will dwindle into the status of mythology with no true spiritual significance among us human beings in the far future. Spirituality of any variety has served its purpose in this world and there is simply no longer a appropriate place for it when it, along the general human mind is modernizing and changing so rapidly over time.

Good day, favorites and comments will be appreciated.

NOTE : Any hateful comments from religious fundamentalists will be REMOVED!!!

I agree with the general message. Creationism is scientifically complete nonsense. (All religion is, in my opinion).
However, not all of your points are correct. The witch hunts killed much less than the holocaust. The witchhunts killed thousands of people, while the holocaust killed 6 million jews (11 million people in total). The indigenous races in the Americas suffered most under the diseases brought by Europeans, not actual violence. Violence was also a very major factor, and was completely inexcusable, but it was not entirely religiously motivated: political expansionism was a greater drive behind it.

Glad to see more and more people waking up to find themselves in reality. 

Browsing comments of course, there are still plenty of creationists that wander into the wrong place... But good they read all this, maybe it'll make the crack in the wall that will finally get them through to real life, real physics, and real reason.


To be fair, back in it's day it may have been a reasonable attempt to explain the universe... But the only reason any of it exists (the Talmud, Torah, Bible) is because the Greeks gave the desert peoples writing and literacy.... Had Alexander not conquered the Middle East, the Bible would not exist. And we'd be better for it lol

Yes? That wasn't my point lol

The Jewish people had no writing system -previous- to the Greek invasion, wherein they got Greek, and wrote their holy books thus... Compounding today's problems with myriad Abrahamic sects.

That was my point.

Literally all that in the past were carried out by blinded men and people who thought they were better and knew all and told them to do these things. I believe, but the things they did had no justification nor any proof of what they were doing was what god wanted. God is like a father. He lets you do your own things but do enough bad and he can no longer help you. It don't matter if you choose to stray off his ideal path. It only matters if you don't break the main rules. Don't kill. Don't steal. Don't claim yourself to be god. Don't worship false idols things like that...... Its mostly a thing of morale and stuff like that. I'm not forcing anything on anyone I'm just saying. Religion was something to believe in whether real or not its nice to have faith that there is someone watching over you and a better place and your family and relatives when you die. Because this world is fucked up. And we're ALL to blame. We need to accept each other. People are right times are changing and it's supposed to be good change. But some people just want to divide us. You need to not let that happen. Whether gay or straight. Religious or non religious. We all need to learn to shut the fuck up, bite our tongue and respect the person even if you hate them.

What Bible verses do you know that supports racism, humanism, socialism, communism, feminism and Nazism? because I'm here to tell ya, the Bible is against all those listed items. And as the Bible is not the tree of these evil fruits, it's evolution that's to blame.

I mean we used to teach Bible as a subject in an educational cirriculum. But because we want to grease the squeaky wheel, we took the Bible out of school and suddenly morals are disapearing. If we teach children that they are animals, it's no wonder that they will act like animals.

You know what else is 'just a book'? the Quran. The book that is the source of all that is going on in the Middle East. Maybe they should all just grow up too.

You were 8? Yeah, I remember thinking that the Stegosaurs lived during the Jurassic Period or that the Mammoth lived during one of the Ice Ages when I was 8 too. But you know what? I did grow out of the line of thought because I learned that 99% of all the atrocities that are going on are because we believe we are animals and that we should behave like animals. I praise God I got unbrainwashed before I became one of the many common internet users like you.

What don't exist? Evil fruits? You mean to tell me that there is no evil in this world? That kind of thinking is what a crazy person would say. If you really think this way, then what good is there in genocide, communism, racism and feminism*?
They say: There are no absolutes. I say: Are you absolutely sure?

*And if you want to argue that feminism is for equality, I can discuss that as an entirely different topic.

As a skeptic, I find it hard to believe that racism began on November 24, 1859, and that before that fateful day prejudice, racial violence, and irrational hate were completely unheard of. I find it much more likely that racism predated Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution and that racists simply formed their ideology of "Social Darwinism" around their own, predisposed irrational beliefs. The effects of scientific facts and theories on preexisting societal norms, and the opinions individual people form around those effects, have no say on the validity of said facts and theories. The same can be said about Nazism and Communism. The role of Social Darwinism in either of these ideologies has no ultimate impact on the validity of the fact of evolution. You could argue that the Theory of Evolution led to the realization of Social Darwinism and reject it for purely personal reasons, but your rejection of a scientific fact based on society's reaction following its discovery has no effect what-so-ever on its validity. It simply does not.

Humanism, in my opinion, is a wonderful ideology which, and least to some degree, should be practiced by everyone who is, in fact, human. I don't completely understand its connection to evolution or why it would be put in such a negative light. 

I do not see a line of reasoning between "Creationism did not lead to racism, Nazism, Humanism, or Communism" and "therefore, God absolutely exists and he created the Earth in six days and wants to have a personal relationship with me." It is a non sequitur.

I'm not really predujiced against homosexuals. All fetishes are to each their own and I know I can't change their imaginations. Only that I firmly stand by that same-sex marriage? That is non-existant. They call it that but what it actually is is a pact between two friends. Real marriages should only between one man and one woman. It's the way we were meant to be. You don't drive a nail in with a nail nor can you get eggs from two roosters is all I'm saying. But reiterate I'm not one to argue one's way of thinking same-sex marriage is a real marriage.

Also I tend to get confused. When you get married, the husband's surname is inherited. So in a same-sex marriage, do they keep their surnames or do they flip a coin on it?

All I know is that I'm never turned on when I'm in a company of men and I never get how one in ten of those guys would.

Fortunately all my male friends are Christian so no sense of worrying about that. But I'm more concerned when kids come across something on the internet that will eventually lead to their current sexual preferences (AKA they discover they're gay).

And that's another curious thing to me. Whenever I do come across a gay person on the internet, they claim it's because they "discover" they're gay. I don't see how that can occur. That would most likely come from misguided parenting or their parents are gay already. (or guardians I should call them. two males does not equal childbirth nor does two women.)

"All I know is that I'm never turned on when I'm in a company of men and I never get how one in ten of those guys would."

Just because you are not Homosexual doesn't mean it is a fetish. It isn't a fetish. Homosexuals CAN have fetishes just like Heterosexuals can e.g. A Homosexual/Heterosexual with a Latex fetish.

"Fortunately all my male friends are Christian so no sense of worrying about that. But I'm more concerned when kids come across something on the internet that will eventually lead to their current sexual preferences (AKA they discover they're gay)."


So as a person with no personally interaction of people are non-Christians. No wonder why you have a misguided knowledge of Homosexuality. You need to empathise as a human being.


"And that's another curious thing to me. Whenever I do come across a gay person on the internet, they claim it's because they "discover" they're gay. I don't see how that can occur. That would most likely come from misguided parenting or their parents are gay already. (or guardians I should call them. two males does not equal childbirth nor does two women.)"

When people "come out" or "discover" it can be misleading. The appropriate way of saying you found out you are gay is probably; "Today, I understood my sexual preferences spending my life thinking otherwise". We live in a world where heterosexuality is the majority and we assume everyone at birth is heterosexual. Thus spend they lives in the belief they are straight. They "discover" their homosexuality in later life most likely in puberty where sexuality is exploded naturally. 

"
That would most likely come from misguided parenting or their parents are gay already. (or guardians I should call them. two males does not equal childbirth nor does two women.)"

I haven't heard of a gay couple adopting children that eventually turn gay themselves. That would be a notable case, yet it would make an assumption that Homosexuality is nurtured rather than natured. A interesting point is that Homosexuality doesn't come from parents who teach Homosexuality positively only. It comes from places where Homosexuality is not just criminalised but condemned with death. Why would a Ugandan man or woman risk the chance of death to be Homosexual? Why would Homosexuals exist in places where they "shouldn't". Why? Because it is not a choice. If they had a choice, they would probably love to be heterosexual. But they can't.

For future references; 

I am a Straight Male.
Hindu-Buddhist Born
Christian Raised from Muslism/Christian communities.
I know Homophobia well. I grew up with children who hated homosexuality.
But my mother said to me; "I would love you no matter what sexuality you are". And I realised that it doesn't matter about sexuality, only civil empathy and understanding. Not even acceptance is needed. Just empathy.
