i DO believe in god
i dont believe in religion
2 different things and it seems you are automatically comparing them just like everyone else
god made man, man made religion
religion is going to have many faults, all of them, but that dont mean there isnt a god...i separate myself from what man has done when it comes to this subject
is gonna be
a fucking mess.
I do believe in a 'divine energy,' but here are the reasons why I don't believe in the Western God:
1. No 'just' and 'moral' God would allow the atrocities that take place in our everyday life to his 'beloved' creatures to happen; it is NOT a benevolent being.
2. I just find the thought of a big man roaming around in the sky playing chess with people's lives highly ridiculous..the whole Western ideals of what God actually is are ludicrous..we call it a 'he' as if it can be confined to such humanistic things such as gender..pfft.
3. And of course, Soulja Boy.
I rest my case.
I fail to see how you can accuse me of automatically comparing anything. I haven't even spoken a word, nor has the topic even drifted to the word religion.
People can bring up religion if they'd like to. If religion is one's reasons for not believing in God, then it is that person's prerogative.
Personally, I believe in the God of a religion. Since I made this thread, I can post whatever images I'd like to in the topic post. *sticks out tongue*
Everybody is free to their own beliefs. You're sitting here whining about that already?
I don't feel like it
They haven't convinced me
Let the chips fall where they may.
i dont think the 1st one is a good reason.
and devine energy means what? explain how you mean it
i think god gave us the science and tools to procreate, and after that he left us alone...things happen because they do
we cant be given free will and also be protected against other people or accidents or natural disasters
i never understood that logic for not believing in god
and since you dont believe god would be confined to such a humanistic idea such as gender, which i agree, why would he be even confined to shit we could even understand in our brains
like i said in my first post, what man has done to the idea of god dosent change anything...you can drop religion, but god is still god, whether is be benevolent or whatever he created everything, we dont know what his motives are
idk u got a jesus .gif right there
i thought you were being facetious
This thread lost all hope for civility or any semblance of intelligence the moment Piff entered.
He destroys every thread on philosophy and/or religion with a variety of talking points usually brought up by fans of The Matrix.
1.) No concrete evidence.
edit: by 'concrete evidence' I'm referring to facts that support a theory. I.e. -- "the universe is expanding (FACT), therefore, we have evidence for the big bang"
1: the bible has too many contradictions
2: there is too many deaths due to religion
3: n the whole idea of earth being created in 7 days just blows my mind
I love Jesus and he loves me

is it possible to be a god even if all those things are still wrong?
logically than doesnt mean anything against god
god was god before the bible, before anything was written, before people made shit up and put it in the bible and killed people
yes but its the word of god, which some may call schizophrenia
n there is two many Grey areas to be a heaven n a hell
like a guy gets 30 years for a murder he didnt commit then kills a pedophile in prison does he go to hell for murder..
or a young girl sexual abused kills herself n goes to hell for commiting suicide
what where suppose to believe he sits down on a thrown waiting for your arrival like "hey how you goin i see shit on your neighbors lawn when you where drunk now you dont have vip access" its all fictional
well i dont think i believe anyone actually heard god
i dont believe people back in the day were basically plugged with god, friends with him almost
like mary? how the fuck did she give birth to gods first son? so shes the most lucky person ever huh? and what about adam how is he not gods first son?
all of that shit is bible/religion nonsense
at this point, i dont think i coincide with that, i just say there is a god and thats it...he dosent care what religion you are
i dont know if theres an afterlife or not
i hope there is
no one ever living truly knows...we have to be dead to know lol
the bible has good subliminal messages in it, the thing is you have to extract that information without being led on to much by the history
so in your mind what does god do, control my very existence like i have no free will, i think they call that slavery
look i dont care if people have faith sometime it helps dealing with a lost loved one, or maybe it gives someone whos bored with life meaning like where living for a purpose instead of just living for survival
Some (but not all) are good messages. I don't know if they're subliminal.
