it's not my religion even though i was born into it, but i find it incredibly hypocritical of anyone who thinks this is ok but can't tolerate any other kind of joke or slur. it's really sickening how christians can be the brunt of so many jokes but you never hear a joke about another religion unless members of that religion are making fun of themselves. people are bullshit. it would be a lot more tolerable if we were allowed to make fun of other religions.

The √s of 4, 5 and 6 are 2, ~2.24 and ~2.45 respectively.

Snarky mathematics aside, there is nothing prejudice about giving ones opinion on a myth, or comparing one myth to another. Believe whatever you want, as long as it makes you happy and healthy. Thats what the Bokonon quote is all about.

I'm a devout Bokononist. You don't get much more absurd than that.

The first use of this phrase is believed to be from the popular show Furturama in the episode When Aliens Attack on November 7, 1999. However, the actual meme did not begin until much later and it is unknown to what caused its sudden popularity in the mid 2000’s.


Looks like we should consider the source and boycott Futurama and the Simpsons and any other Matt Groening product. What do you think of that?

Writing it off as a myth is absurd when it's possible he was just in a coma and recovered or actually did die and was "resurrected" it's not like it hasn't happened

Pronounced dead, man takes ‘miraculous’ turn

Is your point that Zach Dunlap is the second son of the Christian god or that Jesus was just in a coma and not really the son of a god?

Also, just because something is a myth does not mean it's untrue.

And to take Joker's post a li'l further...single celled animals can be dead for thousands of years and can come back to life, certain frogs die every winter and come back to life...why can't a single human or something else do the same in a 3 day period...to think it impossible is in where the absurdity lies...imho

My point is that it's possible Jesus actually was dead and was resurrected and it's not just an absurd Christian myth

Firstly, by positing naturalistic explanations for Jesus' resurrection you're arguing against his divinity. Whoops!

Secondly, Jesus was not a single celled organism or an amphibian. His ability to resurrect came from his supernatural powers.That's part of what makes it a myth. There is nothing in the bible or taught in any catholic church about comas or extra glucose in the holy bloodstream so he could survive frozen through the winter.

I find it absurd because it fits the definition of absurdity, as do most myths.

I wasn't arguing for his divinity. Just pointing out that the "Christian resurrection myth" isn't as absurd as you make it out to be, in fact, it's much less absurd than the whole "zombie Jesus" thing being used to belittle the beliefs of others.

A zombie was not resurrected. It's a re-animated, brain-dead, flesh-eating piece of rotting skin and bones. Tell me how any comparisons to this is not offensive?
It's an attempt at humor, fine. You want to laugh at yourself, fine. But I'm not talking about people laughing at themselves. I'm talking about a lot of people making the same offensive joke about other's religion. When one or two people did it, i was able to let it go. But at least of my facebook friends, it was a lot more than one or two people. And of those people making that joke, and "liking" that joke, christians were in the minority.

Morris calls his son in New York. "Benny, I have something to tell you. However, I don't want to discuss it. I'm merely telling you because you're my oldest child, and I thought you ought to know. I've made up my mind, I'm divorcing your mother."
The son is shocked, and asks his father to tell him what happened.
"I don't want to get into it. My mind is made up."
"But Dad, you just can't decide to divorce Mum just like that after 54 years together. What happened?"
"It's too painful to talk about it. I only called because you're my son, and I thought you should know. I really don't want to get into it anymore than this. You can call your sister and tell her. It will spare me the pain."
"But where's Mum? Can I talk to her?"
"No, I don't want you to say anything to her about it. I haven't told her yet. Believe me it hasn't been easy. I've agonised over it for several days, and I've finally come to a decision. I have an appointment with my Edgware lawyer the day after tomorrow."
"Dad, don't do anything rash. I'm going to take the first flight to London. Promise me that you won't do anything until I get there."
"Well, all right, I promise. Next week is Passover. I'll hold off seeing the lawyer until after the Seder. Call your sister in New Jersey and break the news to her. I just can't bear to talk about it anymore."
A half hour later, Morris receives a call from his daughter who tells him that she and her brother were able to get tickets and that they and the children will be arriving at Heathrow the day after tomorrow.
"Benny told me that you don't want to talk about it on the telephone, but promise me that you won't do anything until we both get there."
Morris promises.
After hanging up from his daughter, Morris turns to his wife and says, "Well, it worked this time, they’re coming for Seder night, but we are going to have to come up with a new idea to get them here Rosh Hashanah."

I did not insult anyone, despite being called a dick, a prejudiced troll and perhaps most recently a heathen scumbag. I'll admit to an amount of antagonism in my posts which could be interpreted as trolling. But only in response to name calling and completely unfounded accusations of prejudice.

I did not make fun of anyone's religion. I did not "shit on" anyone's beliefs. I made a reasoned observation about an aspect of Christian theology. I called it an absurd myth. My reasoning is as follows, in reading it please try to be objective:

Absurd
1: ridiculously unreasonable, unsound, or incongruous

People dead for three days do not come back to life. That is a ridiculously unreasonable notion.

Myth
1: a usually traditional story of ostensibly historical events that serves to unfold part of the world view of a people or explain a practice, belief, or natural phenomenon

Sounds like every story ever told by any religion no?

I'm sure as Christians its uncomfortable to hear your theology being called myth. But really, objectively, it quite clearly is. For an example of absurdity take the Catholic view of the Eucharist and transubstantiation. Are you going to tell me the literal conversion of crackers into the body of Christ isn't absurd? Even if it is true, and the underlying substance really is converted to the actual body of Chirst, it is a ridiculously unreasonable notion.

I don't see why that has to make you so angry. Isn't the absurdity of the resurrection myth and other fantastical Bible stories the point? If the god just sent down a memo on some tablets, without burning bushes and parting seas, what proof would you have that Moses didn't chisel those commandments himself?

Isn't it the absurdity of religious beliefs that bind a religion's adherents together? A faith in a common story, a holy magic to explain things that can't be explained naturalistically? I think any religious person would do well to recognize and embrace the absurdity of their theology, instead of lashing out against those who hold different opinions.

e.g. Yes God made Jesus a zombie. An intelligent, loving zombie who saved the souls of every being on earth willing to believe. He did it out of love for mankind.

This is the P&R forum on a music festival website. If you can't handle such virulent attacks as "absurd myth" maybe you should save your religious discussions for a Christian web forum.

for a non believer you pretty much like to act as a martyr...you were called an ablum cover which may reference what some would call a dick :funny1: (which I do to almost everyone) and a troll...that is correct.

An intelligent, loving zombie who saved the souls of every being on earth willing to believe. He did it out of love for mankind. This is the P&R forum on a music festival website. If you can't handle such virulent attacks as "absurd myth" maybe you should save your religious discussions for a Christian web forum.


In a thread where I complained about the offensiveness of the term zombie Jesus, you doubted the offensiveness of the term. I couldnt believe you didnt know what a zombie is, so i let it go. Then you got into this whole other myth conversation which I couldnt care less about. So to try to refocus, I explained what a zombie is, and you use the term again, maybe you missed what i posted, but if not you certainly insulted me and my religion even after all this.
As far as an intelligent, loving zombie, that is stupid and untrue. It's a contradiction in terms. And do a google image search to see if the majority of the depictions are of an intelligent, loving being.
