Um wouldn't that just imply to him that you're not over him and that's why you're thinking of him when sending such a "text"? Your logic is flawed. And kinda sad.
The justification for insulting NAZISM and other such beliefs would be the amorality/destructiveness, religion isn't therefore yeah.. it kinda is rude to insult someone's logic solely based on their right to make that personal choice. Insulting someone's elses beliefs when it's uncalled for just makes it seem like you are insecure about your own beliefs and therefore need to impose them on others..
"Amorality" Have you read the bible? Honestly. "destructiveness" 911 Religion CONSTANTLY tries to undermine science "and has to great detriment to progress in the past", it indoctrinates children (in my opinion harming them tremendously emotionally), It devalues women et cetera. BUT YOU'RE RIGHT. I won't just insult someone's belief for no good reason it depends on how they're acting. If they're civil I too will be civil.
#35 The Christian Religion(or better, the catholic church) pretty much screwed up all scientific progress during the dark ages, murdered thousands of people and imposed their beliefs on EVERYONE who wanted to live. Doesn't that sound... immoral/destructive to you? Also, you can insult someones logic based on their beliefs, BECAUSE believing in god and the bible is really. illogical.
Religion has been destructive to many. Religious people even more so. I'm not saying religion as a whole is bad - just that you can't really cite its non-destructiveness as a reason. (See: Crusades, Inquisition, WBC, etc.) I see what #6 is trying to say and it's a fair point. The ex might think "my number's still in her phone" or "when she's thinking of love, my name pops into her mind". OP, it's clear your life is not all that great if you even sit around thinking of dumb shit like this to do. Worry less about what your ex thinks of you and actually go out and have an enjoyable life.
I should have left the word "religion" out of it... A lot passes off as religion these days. What I'm referring to is merely the belief in God.. I completely agree that the leaders of Catholic/Christian churches did amoral things in the guise of religion.. But that was clearly out of a hunger for power and little to do with God. 48 Please don't bother making general claims that believing in God is illogical or unscientific without any backing, for the record some of the greatest scientists would disagree with you... Isaac Newton, Albert Einstien, Max Planck 'firmly denied atheism' 47 I agree with your conclusion there, actions override beliefs any day..
That's a LOGICAL fallacy it doesn't matter what those scientist believed it matters what evidence shows and so far there isn't any for ANY gods. So there's no logical reason to believe in any. It sounds like you're saying "well you can't prove there's no god" well I can't prove there aren't any invisible pink unicorns either does that mean they exist? And of course you don't associate corruption with your god if you did then you wouldn't be worshiping it... I wish all this weren't gonna get moderated there are some excellent videos that show exactly why what you're saying now is wrong clearly and respectfully better than I can in text. Do you mind if I send you one?
Not at, send it :) My (and Einsteins) reasons for believing in God are not simply because of no proof that God doesn't exist. I just didn't want to go into it considering how far off topic we got from the original post. Just quietly it's also because I kinda feel guilty about how looong my comments have been :/
I don't know about all those other scientist but I KNOW Einstein wasn't religious but even if he was that would still be an appeal to authority (a logical fallacy). Not to mention JUST as many great minds and world leaders have been illreligious. I feel guilty about these off topic long post too, lol. Pm me your YouTube and I'll send it over. :)
I deserved that one. I see what 6 is trying to say and it's a fair point. The ex might think "my number's still in her phone" or "when she's thinking of love, my name pops into her mind". OP, it's clear your life is not all that great if you even sit around thinking of dumb shit like this to do. Worry less about what your ex thinks of you and actually go out and have an enjoyable life.
I'm sorry but that's pretty pathetic.
