Is this real or is it a Church Sign Generator product?

Then why do you "study" the bible?

Or does God move farther away from us, maybe he just doesn't like smart people, what with all of the "Slavery is bad" and "The Sun doesn't orbit the Earth" and "You don't exist" stuff ?

Amen to that!

So smart people move away from god?

7/17/2017 2:40:29 AM


...I have no problem with this. In fact, it makes me rather proud of myself.

I mean, if god, of all things, is an anti-intellectual, then why the frigg would I want to be close to it?

Seriously, these people unwittingly make more arguments for our side than we possibly could. Good job!

$5 says reverend pastor has a "doctorate" on the wall behind his desk.

How do you measure distance from an imaginary entity?

Like how far from Hogwarts do you live?

Yup, the more "educated" you become, the farther away from the Bible you come.
Education as in being taught to vote republican, to shun universal healthcare, to despise people who are not like you, to be deluded into thinking the Earth is flat and/or the center of the universe...

Everytime one of these are put up that's asked.
Poe's Law example'
You're never sure because a hundred churches and a thousand in the club are likely to think that's clever, worse, that shit's barked from the pulpits and Tea Party stages.

"Trumps is God's Candidate/Choice"
"Education ruining America say 60% of Republicans"

Thinking Allowed

Dear gods...I should take more pictures of a local church sign here. One time the sign said "God loves you whether you like it or not." My thought was it sounded like an over-bearing parent or a jealous lover.

That's what we've been telling you all along.

Good for you.

Doubting Thomas

Wasn't it Martin Luther who said that reason is the greatest enemy of faith? Just goes to show that theists tend to be anti-education because the uneducated are more likely to be religious, and the educated more likely to not be.

Skydad what was a big proponent of being 'educated'

It took educated people to come up with a certain invention in 1916. In which case...:

...a certain deity is indeed moving farther away from the general direction of Earth.

Not just the above Challenger II Iron Chariots in Britain: M1 Abrams in America, Leclercs in France, Leopard IIs in Germany, Merkavas in Israel [/Irony], T-90s in Russia, Type 99s in China & Pokpung Hos in North Korea make sure that, if he's educated, your 'God' will do the wise thing and fuck off: never to return.

It takes educated people to find that exploit in that word of your 'God', does it not...?! [/Judges 1:19]

This is true.

Well yeah. The further you move away from ignorance, the further you get from ignorance. That's a tautology.

Tainted Scholar

@Mister Spak

At least Hogwarts has an actual location (It's in Scotland).

How am I suppose to be moving farther away from an omnipresent being?

Truer without the scare quotes.

A church sign I saw when I was stationed in Charleston, South Carolina
in the '60s said, "Dogs and sailors keep off the grass".
