LMAO it is so easy to trigger atheists these days.  

Really? Seems to me some Christians are the ones triggered. I'm just fine :)

Bereal - Faith in Jesus Christ is not unreasonable at all.

And let’s be clear, most everyone has ‘faith’ in some type of religion.

It’s pretty unreasonable. You’re basing your view of the entire universe on a bunch of human scribblings by multiple unknown authors from 2,000 years ago, assembled in haphazard fashion and originally written in languages you don’t understand. And you probably haven’t even fully read your English translation of these scribblings.

Believing that a Middle Eastern man from 2,000 years ago was the savior of the universe and the living embodiment of all creation is not a rational thing. And it’s even less rational to believe he has anything to do with the outcome of a MMA fight.

But I actually support your freedom to believe such a thing, and can see how it would give you strength. Or at least comfort.

If all the invisible sky dads of the world fought, who would win? 

Im thinking Zeus v. Odin would be the tournament final


Considering they both are not real....it wouldn’t be much of a fight

Yahweh wins. Both Zeus and Odin come from polytheistic belief systems. Judeo-Christian belief is monotheistic, that’s what distinguished it from competing religions. A singular omnipotent, ominiscient being is gonna be more powerful than beings who are part of pantheons of similar beings.

You know the Romans used to mock the Jews for believing in one God over everything? That’s the origin of the Latin phrase Credat Judaeus Apella, non ego. (Let Apella the Jew believe, not I).

Doc Holliday says that phrase to insult Johnny Ringo in the movie Tombstone.

Evidently Mr. Ringo is an educated man! Now I really hate him.

Max's religious "consistency" is none of your business, OP.

He gives thanks when good things happen.

He goes through tribulations when bad things come, not blame.

That's the difference when you don't believe, you mock and blame everything else.

"Faith in Jesus Christ is not unreasonable at all."

Well this guy says so, so it must be true. 

Guess we can close this thread out.

But shouldn't he have still thanked Jesus for all his gifts? This surely hurt Jesus' feelings that he didn't get a mention at the ufc last night. 

So we only thank Jesus when good things happen?

Faith in Greek and Norse dieties is not unreasonable at all.

So just so we're clear: 

Good things happen: it's not because of your own doing but all thanks to Jesus.

Bad things happen: that's your fault and had nothing to do with Jesus. 

Everybody got that? 

I don't know about you but I'm learning a lot about god today.

I can’t help but feel like you intentionally skipped my lengthy post on the first page just so you could keep making responses like this one. It’s pretty obvious that you believe you’re more intelligent than any religious person and this thread is just mental masterbation for you. Honestly, it’s like a conversation I’d expect to have with my 13 yo son.

 If someone believes they won a sporting contest because god directly wanted them to win, then they are an idiot and know nothing about faith. If they want to thank god, they should thank him for ability, or the mental strength to train hard. Thus, if they lose they accept the responsibility for the loss as their own. Either they didn’t train the way they needed to, or the other person is just better. Because god doesn’t care who wins and loses games, it’s how you live your life and the faith you have inside you. The competitor may use the discipline of faith to also discipline their training. They may recognize a certain mental clarity or focus they gain through faith. There are lots of reasons they could be thanking god, but I can’t help but feel like you guys are intentionally distorting the issue. 

I’m not saying you should believe in any of that, but this thread was only being debated from one side and it was profoundly narrow and uninformed.

This. As a Christian I always find it odd that someone thanks God for a win.

people were up in arms about conor making fun of khabib's  wife's wedding attire. not sire why it's ok to make fun of 1 faith  but not others.  I'm  fine with this  thread really (aside from it being unoriginal) but it's either all ok or not at all.

Classic.

I revisited your lengthy post. The problem is that you described how and when you think someone SHOULD be thanking Jesus, but that doesn't make it the case that is always how it is done. Also, because you can't seem to hold an intelligent conversation without throwing insults in. Is that how you talk to your 13 year old son?

Perhaps he was insinuating that his 13yr old son is smarter than him...
