Atheists did you know happiness is a Christian concept?

So for all the atheists who claim to be happy I have news for you: Happiness and the concept of happiness was first mentioned in the Bible. Therefore, it is a concept originated by Christianity. Adam and Eve were happy in the Garden of Eden until they broke GOD's law and ate from the tree of forbidden fruit.

Happiness = GOD
Unhappiness = rejection of GOD's laws= atheism

Get happy and get with the Good News!

There lies the difference between science and religion... science doesn't need to lie to prove itself.

Your argument is so stupid it doesn't even deserve a facepalm.

Read the Kama Sutra lately, shithead? Christians didn't invent love and happiness.

(An entry just last week from my personal Journal)

[...]I’m completely content on how my life is going. I’m completely happy with who I am. I am learning every day, I enjoy watching humanity progress. I am completely at peace with my life, my career, and my environment. I don’t feel stressed at all, although physically, my back is bugging me (and not allowing me to play basketball like I want *hmph*) I can see very clearly where my career is going, and it is very satisfying. I know where I fit in with my career; and the visions and goals I have drive every step of the way. I have surrounded myself with intelligent, fun, wise friends with very little drama. I don’t sweat *any* small stuff any more. I enjoy my hobbies, and my wife’s hobbies, and our hobbies together and travels. I completely and thoroughly enjoy sharing my life with my wife, who is one of the most intelligent and loving people I’ve ever met – and has zero drama as well. I feel true joy with my band and our music, watching people dance and have a good time. My wife and I have our finances well under control and will be completely secure throughout our lives.

...

Yup, I'm pretty friggin' miserable. Good holy goats, I wish I followed that Art's religion. Oh woe is me.

So since Adam and Eve were only happy in Eden, then that would mean it shouldn't exist since we were expelled. Guess that makes it a little less of a Christian concept then, doesn't it?

So let me get this straight: When I say there is no evidence for your god you are perfectly entitled to say, "my personal experience tells me that there is." However, when I tell you that I am an atheist and I am happy, you are entitled to say, "you're not really happy, you only think you are." Forgiving the incredibly patronizing tone of this line of thought, doesn't it seem contradictory to you?

Do you even care?

Didn't think so.

so, my atheism prevents my brain from producing the chemicals that make me happy?

The people over at Rapture Ready must be doing something wrong, then.

You do know the earlier meaning of the word "gay", don't you, Captain?

Happiness is a word contained in languages whose speakers are not majoritarily Christians. Try again.

I'm quite happy, thanks.

Looking at you lot makes me feel, that you're everything but happy. You keep banging your heads against a solid brick wall, when trying to make the world a place of your preference... and failing time and time again.

So, why not just be happy, and stop that bullshit already. If happiness comes from bigotry, persecution, hatred etc. i think i'll pass.

EDIT: Do you think, that people before christianity weren't happy or didn't know the concept of happiness? Think again, dipshit.

Yeah. It's not like the Old Testament (you know, the book of the Jews) mentions happiness at all....

So, no-one was happy before 300 AD?

So this fundie is saying that a thought system based on:

- Emotional blackmail ("Jesus loves you! How can you be so cruel not to believe in him?")
- Constantly induced guilt ("All humans are SINFUL! So everything YOU DO is SIN! Repent!")
- Open threats ("Either believe in God, or burn in hell forever")
- Schizophrenic double-bind paradoxies ("I am a jealous God! I punish and kill because I can! And don't forget: I am full of mercy and love!")

such a thought system is allegedly the sole source of happiness? Yeah, right.

Christianity isn't happiness. It is sheer, pure tyranny.

*facepalm*

I'm pretty damn sure Alexander the Great, Plato, Aristotle, etc -- all pre-Christian historic figures -- had their happiness. Particularly Alex, given he had an amazing gay lover, three wives, a eunuch, and control of half the known world during his reign.

Ugghhh... MORON!!!

wait, by that logic wouldn't that mean that happiness is actually a Jewish concept? Hava nagila hava...
And for the record Gringo (your mother sucks cocks in hell).

Now this is a new kind of bat-shit crazy. First mention means a concept didn't exist before the mention, or without the mention being known to the person experiencing it? Well fuck, how did we ever get by without those pesky gluons until science noticed them and published on the subject. And for that matter, how does someone as dim as you not fly apart in a disassociated cloud of subatomic particles?

Christians did you know happiness is an Australian Aboriginal concept? They had it WAY before your buybull was written.

7/20/2014 2:46:39 PM



Nobody was happy before the bible was written?
