ITT: post things that changed your life/world view/approach of religion and people etc.
Anything it is - books, movies, music and even games.
- Doing MDMA with a girlfriend I was madly in love with.
-Though the number of books are countless, "lying" by sam harris made me start acting morally, the god delusion made me an atheist
- Taking Philosophy 101 my freshman year forever changed the way I think.
Does nobody else notice the younger bitch isn't actually doing anything but trying to look pretty/sexy, while the other one is sucking the dick.
when my grandmother died i realised how much value people can have and how they influence you. it turned me into a loner and i've been that way ever since and that is probably why i'm here now.

Movie: Peaceful Warrior
1) I would like to tell my children that the best books are yet to be written, the best melodies yet to be composed.
My ex girlfriend. Spent 5 years and almost got engaged with her. Sweetest little thing in the whole world. Perfect relationship, did the world for each other. Tons of laughs and good times. Cheated on me multiple time I found out then left me for a guy at school. Made me hate humanity and now Ive given up on life and people as a whole.
Best friend of 8 years kills himself.
Girlfriend of two years leaves for school.
Parents separate a couple weeks later.
I realized that all the "problems" I had up to that point were fake and I was making them up. Since ive gotten over it all I dont let things stress me out. Im not as angry. I try and treat people better now because the smallest influence can change someones life.
You should be, not gonna lie. Its a pain like you've never felt before. Its like my soul was detached from my body. Worst part is im the good person, shes the evil one and shes fine. Her lifes exactly how she wants it when mines in shambles. I live like a zombie now. No emotion, no feeling.
god tier answers
been there. This is normal for some period, but you have to get over that. Quit my job, moved to different city, met a new girl. You have to realize she was not the person you saw in her, otherwise there would have been no cheating on you. It took me 1 year to completely detach myself from her, but now I am happier tha ever.
I read a lot of philosophy and such. And my absolute favorite book is the The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius.
It's a bit simple and repeats himself a bit, but his way of thinking gives you a very eased mind.
I've had the same situation, except I turned my ending of the relationship into an evaluation of my choices in people. Turns out I wasn't very emotionally connected or attached to many of my friends, ended up cutting down my social circle down to 2 friends and my girlfriend. I am a lot happier in that aspect and now I am spending more time finding out what I can do with my life than limiting myself to the idea of perfection.
Because although holy books are the biggest bullshit in the planet and we may be never able to realize the true truth, it is undeniable that there is something going on rather than not, i don't know how else to explain it fully, ¿god is not a reality, but reality is a god?
I mean, it's all a tricky subject to begin with because of the cultural meaning we give to the word god(God, with capital G, he, the Guy, the BIG HUMAN) , but if we put god as the "it" that give us existence, disregarding the stories and personifications, then you end up with a truth, yes, there is some weird shit that made all of this. You can see similar growth patterns and order everywhere, i'm not talking about a designer, i'm talking about a sort of non-living mechanism that is present everywhere in life
Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series did a number on how I view things. I wasn't sucked into the cult-like craziness of the Ayn Rand fans, but I was slightly influenced by the series.
Spending two years in Iraq changed my worldview of Muslims. I am both more accepting of Muslims and more intolerant of Islam. After those two years I spent the next 4 or 5 years learning more about Islam and how it affects the world.
Military history books changed how I view societal conflict and what war is.
Here's my two cents. If your religious belief requires you to eat the literal flesh and drink the literal blood of your lord and savior by way of consuming crackers and whine, all to ensure your place in heaven when the inevitable dooms day comes along as planned by the invisible man in the sky, you're definitely believing a myth. Also the origin of humanity, the world and the universe as described in religious texts are obviously myths.
I'm assuming you're talking about Abrahamic religions, but the same is true for most others.
Now an Eisteinian God, meaning the metaphysics that create the world around us... That's one I could get behind, mostly because there's no petty murdering sprees and arbitrary rules involved.
Well yeah, like I said in >>558071472 I could get behind a 'god' like that, but that's not a god personified. It's not like all atheists are against being spiritual or looking at life/the universe as a whole and sense being a part of it.
that shit isnt even accurate.
>ITT people believe the wrong shit faggot writes.
that nigger could never even bother to correctly study his resource for that shit. shit hermeneutics, shit theology and shit reasoning. then he wants everyone to listen to him. idiot.
It is deniable. If you don't know how to explain then you probably don't understand the point you are trying to make.
If you change the god of myth and religion to an "it", a mechanism of physics that created the universe then it is in it very essence not the same thing anymore. You're just shifting concepts/words around to fit your own babby ideas of science/religion and creation.
I see what you mean. Maybe that was also one of the reasons it did not work out - I am talking about that part where you see yourself at 7/10. WHat in particular makes you feel like 7/10? How are the others supposed to view you, when even you are not satisfied with yourself? I am not speaking about being perfect, but you have the power to change the things you don`t like about yourself. You have to see these periods of life as an opportunity to change that. But you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO get out of your comfort zone to make things happen. WHatever that means - working out, changing your appearance will also change your way of thinking. Or pursue something at work, travel, try LSD - just don`t whine about one woman, who was attractive and left you - you will regret wasting some much time on her later.
Fine, tell me where I'm wrong and I'll be happy to concede.
Though I think you want to deny your own religion because putting it up on an image board literally as opposed to listening to it from a man in a tight as shit robe makes it sound stupid.
Never been religious (inb4 edgy but you know, out of america, religion is not a standard). But I've always been interested on how things work and the process of believing.
Then I read about confirmation bias.
First of all, my life has been a long and wild roller coaster, and it is every event in my life that defines me as me.
Starting of in middle school, i'm 13 and discovered Morrowind (first thing that changed me). I fell in love with fantasy and role playing; something that wasn't me. You see I used to move around a lot as a kid, and didn't get to settle down. But in Morrowind, I could be the person I wanted to be.
So time went by and I modded the shit out of Morrowind as I discovered the famous Interwebs. Changed me to a beta cringe-worthy faggot, who liked my little pony, and hated NineGag. Thought I knew everything, and didn't make friends (tho I had friends). That's kind of the dark side to this story, the one I despite. However, modding Morrowind had led me to 4chan's /v/, which led me to /b/. (I'm here cause it's still a part of me)
So, high school.. First year... it was shit. /b/ made me isolate, and made me into a fucking retard. I've always wanted to be a different person, so I wanted to find something that was "mine", so when people said my name, thy would match it up with "my thing". That's how /mu/ came into the picture. Neutral Milk Hotel, The Microphones, The Drums all of these indie hipster band, I had found what I was looking for. When people heard my name, they thought about bad music, saw playing and trombone. Jeff Mangum was a hero for me, and he smoked weed. COOL MAN. GOTTA ENJOY THAT MUSIC.
So I discovered weed, and smoked my ass out of school. Bad grades. Was around 17 years old. And I was that retard who always talked about legalizing weed, cause it's so natural. And just like that I became a fan of everything natural. DMT is natural, man (oh my fuck, I can't even begin to describe that episode). Shrooms are natural, man.
Two years passed and I had lots of friends, smoked all kinds of stuff, but nothing un-natural. Until I told myself, is it worth it? No. so I stopped at that day. Right there, I stopped.
Later that year I started bodybuilding, and /fit/ has helped me a lot. I'm social and people respect me.
So if you want to change your life, and don't want to do it my hard way, head over to /fit/ and start reading up on building muscles. It's the perfect way to experience happiness in a legal way. You'll respect yourself, and learn not to respect others like a fucking alpha bro.
Faith has always intrigued me.
Mum devote roman catholic, dad agnostic.
Tried to be indoctrinated by the church of latter day saints and scientologists pretty much at the same time.
My gf developed a friendship with the former and her sister was swept away by the latter. Until i interveened on both occassions.
Both had a culture, books, music, role models, lifestyle, community it was easy to be swept up through acceptance.
The scientologists were a no-call, i was willing to give the saints the benefit of the doubt.
The saints had true faith but used it as a line in the sand, defining themselves against those their interpretation deemed inferior.They had no idea this was a bad thing, in fact revelled in it.
the sci-psychos compartmentalised psudo-science and used jargon to confuse you into becoming a sheep. At least the former still chose to be sheep.
People use faith to define themselves against an unseen, inferior enemy. This makes them feel better/superior.
I saw similair things in friends who followed budhism, islam and other things that become a religion like eating habits, scene and musical tastes.
Everyone draws a line in the sand but.
But for some it defines them, for others it's something to overcome.
Conflict versus adaption
The latter can develop, the former destroy.

Having childhood friends kill themselves at young ages (10 - 14)
Having parents that don't give a shit about what you want in life.
List goes on, although hasn't made me bitter about the world.. More of a
>I don't really care what happens, I'll look out for myself and do what I enjoy
What exactly do you mean?
I've seen a lot of posts where christianity seem to be the standard in USA and kids/teenagers that are not religious appears to be "edgy" and acting like rebels toward their parents.
I might be wrong tho.
You're free to have that opinion and shit, but in Dawkins' defense, he has to deal with the same religious arguments over and over again. If the other camp came up with something new he'd have something else to say.
You guys should read this
Book: The Count of Monte Cristo
EXP: My girlfriend of 2 years that I was going to marry to give a green card left me for a Navy nigger who is stationed in Bahrain, She lied about it and blocked me on social media. I found out through a gimmick.
Personal stories that are supposed to change someones view or alter his position in his own perception require the reader to be ready to do so...
Unless you are experiencing it you can't feel the same way. If that guy didn't bother reading he is not interested enough to make something of it.
TL;DR of the story: Refelct your life, what was bad? Remove it and reflect what has to be done to make it all over good.
Everything you imagine is a possibility, a reality you just created. It exists. Within your own mind, but that doesn't make it real.
It helps keeping the distance between yourself and the world so that you don't get drowned by your own irrationalities in certain situations.
Playing with possibility is the core that makes up humanity.
Also life is a game. I treat doing things for other people as side quests.
What I hate most on this playing with words is that some religious people act as if god is the answer. "Science doesn't know something thefore the answer is god."
No, you haven't answered the question. You just hide your ignorance behind a word and don't explain shit.
fuck up about most girls bro. Girls are human beings and I'm sure that out of the 3 or 4 billion on the planet there are a few that like whatever you are. Stop making excuses and execute, action precedes motivation.
It was a tender paradise. But when I was 12 my parents divorced. Then I became a burden because my stepmom and stepdad didn't like me.
It changed my life. It turned me extremely aware of what people really are. There is no good ending.

-manufacturing consent by noam chomsky: how public relations are actually propoganda

the game by neil strauss: pure marketing/pua faggotry but was my first step in delving into redpill and becoming a mgtow
>but if we put god as the "it" that give us existence
That's a bad definition of god though. I mean on the same vain i could say "if you make the definition of god 'a four legged furry mammal'" then yes god exists because "god" now means "dog".
For fuck sakes, you all people trigger really badly when you read the word god
Do you need me to use your words?
Okay, my life changed because i realized all energy was in a single point in space before becoming all of this strange madness and that there are some mathematical and structural patterns repeated all over the universe under the idea of self replication and mutation in order to further complexity that i find completely awe inspiring.
Or maybe i need one of your heroes to explain it to you:
Watched "Mind Control" by Eben Pagan. It is 40 hours of self improvement video material. Main idea is "everything is a system" so see everything as a system and nto try to deal with problems in cause-effect mindset. Anyway after watching that I tripped on shrooms and everything came together in my mind
typical teenage bullshit that everyone goes through
>i wanna be special
>i have something to prove to the world
>in a few years you again wanna be someone different
Because that's how it works. Until you find yourself and stop giving a fuck and just be you. Saves tons of time and energy.
I would say manufacturing consent leaning to chomsky's anarchist side than marxist side but still
most of what book said can also be easily applied to USSR too, though the difference is people in ussr knew goverment was lying to them people in usa did not, up until recently
saddam has WMD craze of the last decade is sufficient proof
Man them feels.
I will never forget.
Your my feels bro now.
oh god I love eben pagan
>can't get any girls
>be really good at marketing
>sell people products as if you are good at getting girls while you barely get laid, have only 2 gf's pre 2009, marry a tranny
>make shit tons of money from desperate virgins
>switch to marketing/sales when PUA market becomes overflow, become a member of "syndicate" that illegally cuts off competition
>make millions and get away with it
Imo there is no "finding yourself". Change is perfection, if you stand still in your development beacsue you think you reached an ultimate state, this stagnation won't take you any further. You can only lead a meaningful life by constant self-refelction.
Sorry I've probably not been very clear. I've no problem with the word God. If you chose to call what you don't know, the reason of the univers by the word "God" then so be it.
It bother me if you use that as an argument for something that does have scientific evidence that contradict it. For example "he's been healed, it's God work!". No, he just had medical care and we know how it works.
As funny as it sounds there's so many things its opened me up to, things i couldn't give a shit about before.
It has a lot of shit on it, but I have learnt so much more.
Doug Stanhope, Bill Hicks and Zietgeist. Weed. Tool. Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlen - which really got me more in favor of individual societal responsibility and status. Which is totally at odds with the rest of my world view.
zeitgeist is inaccurate in someparts, and christfags exploit this inaccuracy to state that jesus never had pagan origins/influence
it did, but not as much as zeitgeist claims, problem is the movies mistake give ammunation to chirstfaggotry
yes, but problem is zeitgeist is getting a bit overboard
we don't know much about mitra having disicples/born into virgin etc, zeitgeist claims it does and then christfags state there is no evidence of mitra being born into virgin and therefore christianity must not have any pagan influence whatsoever
I had thought of that a few years ago, but it means nothing. It's just as much a dead end as anything else.
Just do what happens, man.
I learned god was dead when my little sister died of leukemia.
He is dead, and as his sons it is our duty to roam the land and save our own people. Because there really is nothing else than ourselves to save us.
>2nd year med student here. Did a BsC. in philosophy before.
Thats true... Lol... Christians needing evidence
Black skin white masks by Frantz Fanon caused me a lot of agony as I recognized myself in it.
I have not read much of the bible but I think Genesis is one of the best stories I have ever read.
The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran is one of the greatest takes on personal philosophy of all time IMO. It isn't even that long either, but it's simplicity is also very deep. I'd recommend everybody read it.
Acid is basically the same thing, you'll get purists who say 'it's research chems hurr dur it'll fuck you up its not real' but in my experience they're pretty similar.
Acid lasts longer and is more intense to generalize.
Women (not girls) dig guys, who can make them laugh, treat them nice (that does not mean to let them do whatever they want) and they feel safe with. Men seek good girls that will be bad just for them. Women seek bad boys, that will be good just for them. You physical look is important, but not as much as you think. Change what you can with reasonable dietary changes a normal human workout - plan 6 months to one year for this and you will see the results, that will give you the confidence you need.
I was overweight on high school, but later changed my diet and started to play sports/work out. It helped tremendously, but the important thing is your confidence, personality and that is what makes you a man that women want.
dishonored taught me that revenge may feel good and justified but in the end whatever you do, good or bad,will influence a person or an event in ways you wouldn't expect. your own actions influence your own outcomes in your life.
man i fucking love dishonored and daud's story arc
Archies Final Project really hit home for some reason. Got really drunk after and realized that being by yourself really is meant for some people.
Realizing I wasn't the only one on earth who didn't believe in god and how great it felt to finally not feel crazy and alone in a Catholic school
Seeing my dad die in front of me
Realizing not all drugs are bad
Listening to Dark side of the moon
Having a life changing shroom experience in which I started appreciating everyone and everything in life
Learning evolution biology. Mainly on early humans and how we are mixed with different groups of early humans.
Christopher Hitchens and all of his debates. Especially the ones about how ridiculous eternal life is
Carl Sagan and shows like Cosmos which inspired me to learn more about the vast universe
Getting dumped by my GF for a really ugly guy and I learned that you can't just be attractive. You need an attractive personality.
Learning Economics and finance to learn more about how money changes politics and correlating political events to investment opportunities and making money in stocks
Establishing my business and realizing money doesn't buy happiness
Realizing the majority of America is stupid and the rest of the world for the most part is even more stupid than that
Listening to Immortal technique and about how fucked up history is and how we unknowingly keep people in third world countries in poverty to sustain our standard of living
Becoming a med student and seeing the body as a machine like a car instead of a person
Becoming wealthy to the point where I didn't have to work and I had everything I could ever need, but I still wasn't satisfied so I started working and was happy again. I learned if you are living it up 24/7 you become desensitized to joy and you need to return to mundane tasks to limit free time so you can appreciate it a lot more.

Doing a couple of grams of shrooms, and having a bad trip, shit really changed my outlook on life for like a month, then back to be depressed.

where are you from, m8? My country was totally fucked up by Socialism/Communism. Similar countries in my region had capitalism and they are far in front, complete oposite of the state before revolution.
Have you lived in socialism? Did the state take your land, your shop, your company and send you to work in uranium mines? Well they did that to my grand dad. Fuck you you sheltered american brat.
And of course the top 1% benefits from socialism too.
Imagine controlling a hole population by financing such countries, putting them into work groups and telling them what to do.
Check out Anthony Sutton's work and also a book called foundations -their power and influence, by Rene A. Wormser
>to give credit state capitalism is not socialism
NO shit, Sherlock. Have you ancestors been imprisoned, denied education or similar for the sake of your Socialism? What the fuck has this has to do with 3rd world countries? You have absoluteley no idea what you are talking about when you say Socialism.
Except that Trotsky lived in New York and was financed by bankers before he went back to russia to take up arms.
Look it up before, or if, you wish to call me a moron for saying that.
my ancestors lived under extreme poverty and were probably miners, they lived under capitalism
but unlike you I don't associate ideology of hundred year ago to the current state of that ideology
ideologies grow/change/reform, the only form of capitalism is not the brual 19th century conditions of manchester and the only form of socialism is not politburo oligarchy of early 20th century russia
Nobody but the 1% benefits from socialism. YOu can§t imagine the drop of economical performance and wellbeing after the Socialism was implemented. The people were so happy, they had to close all borders and were shooting on sight for families with little children. And guess what? People were trying to flee only in one direction. YOu guess which one it was.
Except Trotsky lived in New York and was financed by bankers before he went
back to Russia to take up arms.
Look it up before, or if, you want to call me a moron for saying that please.
Watching 3 of my relatives die of degenerative disease: one from Alzheimer's, one from spinal cancer, and the other one drank herself to death
After all that, I learnt not to give one fuck about people's opinions and learnt to keep a check on my health
again your argument can be used from opposite side
I know a guy from Minnesota who had his job outsourced to china getting very angry about the libertarian/capitalism talk that he received from the san fransisco tech fags
to him capitalism is brutal outsorucing and brutal desire to seek only profit, to you socialism is the brutal oppression of state
neither capitalism nor socialism is one constant brutal ideology you might live under a brutal form of it but that doesnt change this fact
WHat the fuck are you talking about?
I am talking about two states having capitalism and socialism for forty years and it copleteley reversed their economical power and wellbeing of the people.
You talk about some dude from Minnesota, who lost his job.
Great arguments you have there.
not related, i'm not defending socialism of czechistan was better than capitalism of austria
my point is you think the only form of socialism is the socialism in czechistan
just like the minnesotan fag, his only form of capitalism is the capitalism that outsourced his job
>people will not stop being predators, because you kill capitalism.
how true is that, what a shame you can't have a system that controlls that without that system getting abducted by some psychopaths

>soph in college
>looking for some blow off class to fill schedule
>pick social psychology
>learn about how people are sheep
>learn how people become mindless in groups
>learn how to manipulate people
This class was so cash and I didn't even expect it
SO you want to take all the possesions from the people and then distribute them evenly - that did not and will not happen without oppresion. People will fight and you will have to imprison them, kill some of them. Then, you "give" them secure jobs and free health care. For everyone. What are you going to do with people, that will do nothing at work? People, that want capitalism back? Think about this before you praise such system
Jesus christ, your peaceful hypothetical sunny hippie socialism is never going to happen. HOw are you going to get the wealth from all the people? Are you going to ask them nicely to give everything to the state?
Fack you I'd kill my whole family to see him.
Enjoy for me then.
>>558060669 when I was 30 everything fell apart. I had no where to go. I went to My. Shasta Abby, a Zen monastary. I spent my days in silence offset by an hour interview, question answer with the head Abbott daily. One day I was meditating (still shaken up over my fiance's suicide, my business going under etc.) When a butterfly came in the meditation hall and as it flew across the sun beam I received clarity. I stayed a few more days, came home, found a new woman, started a new business, and have been happy mostly since.
>all the possesions
no, just the means of production, having cows is fine, controlling the entire dairy industry is not
>then distribute them evenly
>that did not and will not happen without oppresion
true, I'm not a revolutionary socialist, that I believe with natural progress we will transform into a free market than a socialist economy, ofc leninism states that this is just wishfull thinking and people must force revolution, but I disagree with them
>What are you going to do with people, that will do nothing at work? People, that want capitalism back?
I don't know, but I don't believe current state of society is not compatable for socialism, maybe in future where yo u have star trekesque economy, not post scarce but deffinetly not scarce as it is today
again i'm all for free markets, I believe as adam smith says absolute free markets will bring absolute equality, what soviets did was trying to make a baby run without making it learn how to walk
Porn changed everything. I'd be a productive member of society otherwise.
Socialism and communism are the ultimate primitive tribal system.
Instead of getting the banana for cash, you have to ask the alpha male brute (politicians, bureaucrats and the dictator) for handouts.

and it happened in athens, property and power was distributed relatively peacefully in order to avoid massive revolt/war/revolution, athenian democracy was a form of mild communism
but then again athens also had its flaws and comparing 7 billion to few ten thousand athenians is not perfectly logical, I don't propose any solutions, I believe we will be there naturally or get destroyed
You only have one heartbreak in life. It is this heartbreak that overshadows everything else negative that happens in your life. It is this heartbreak that you contrast and compare everything bad in your life to.
You only get one, whether its a partner breaking your heart, traumatic experience, parental problems etc.
You get one. After this you become cynical.
I personally think that the existence of israel is justified because the land was given to the jews by britain who rightfully owned it at the time, but I don't think that the USA or Europe should support it because of all of the unnecessary trouble it causes
the great gatsby changed my views on a majority of things including
People need to stop using "order and consistency in the universe" as an argument for god. The fact that matter has consistent tendencies indicates a lack of intervention; if there was an omnipotent/omnipresent (or any deity for that matter) being, why would matter/energy simply behave the same, why would it not be situational under the same variables?

I type niggershit into captchas, question my sexuality, laugh at anyone who wears a fedora, goes on tumblr/reddit/9gag, have become 10x more racist, desensitized to gore and freakish porn, have developed several fucked up fetishes, and hate 99% of people. I'm lonely and its of my own volition. So I come to /b/, the embodiment of hatred and loneliness all pooled together in a festering pit. If you regularly browse, you're hooked and probably like me. Remember, you're here forever.
