The "Boggled" Award

And remember, Jesus died for your sins.

Quote# 84447

Altruism is more animal behavior. When a human "sacrifices" out of love it is not a sacrifice at all, so it is not altruism. True love is selfish and when it is selfish it is also loving. If a man jumps in front of a car for his child yes that is very selfish behavior not altruistic at all. Altruism is when you sacrifice yourself for basically no good at all. Theres no good in just sacrificing yourself.

Altruism beats doing the right thing simply because you don't want to get in trouble.

Is this argument where the 2006 Chinese court verdict came from?

What? Seriously, what the hell are you talking about? I've read this like 3 times and I can't figure it out. Are you smoking crack or something?

Someone needs a dictionary. Badly.

"Altruism is more animal behavior."

So you're admitting that it's only Raptor Jesus who truly saves...?!


@I Read About The Afterlife

"So wait. Jesus doesn't love us? Or was he being selfish?"

Well, you know what Leviticus says about shellfish and all; After all, what did Jesus himself say about Jots & Tittles, and all that jazz...?!

Methinks Brisingamen has unconsciously opened up more of a can of winkles than even she could ever imagine...!

Is it a Randroid, a Fundietard or some demented spawn of the pair?

It doesn't really matter if you have a vested interest in the well-being of the others your sacrifice helps - in fact that's kind of the point to it from a biological point of view...

Deep Search

Well, it is true. If you jump in front of a car to save your child it's because you'd be in more pain and anguish than if you didn't try to save them. Because, yeah, a parent wouldn't feel better just standing there watching their kid get splattered under a car even if they were safe. So they rather jump in front of it than live the nightmare of losing their child. A truly selfless sacrifice would be one where you got nothing out of it or it would only be detrimental to you. And nobody ever really does that...

Get a new brain. The one you have isn't working right.

This fundy is trying to say that jesus sacrifice is the only alturistic one ever. He was seen as yet another wannabee messiah that could bring the wrath of the romans. Jerusalem was lousy with mesiah wannabees many were killed. Jesus got caught and killed....nothing unique! Afterwards many stories were invented about him. A new god was born.
If bill gates gave two billion to charity, many anonymous people benifit.. it dosent mattter if he has reward or not. People benifit this is altruisim.

...Do they not teach the Good Samataritan story at all anymore? O.o

The whole point of the story was that the guy's priest, family and friends, those who would have had a reason to help the wounded man out, didn't. But the samaritan, who was from an enemy tribe no less, chose to help the wounded man out and took no credit for any of it.

The parable's -title- refers to the fact that the samaritan chose to be altruistic and help the wounded man out of the goodness of his heart.

TL;DR: Read your own book,fundies x.x
