Re: Do you believe in God? If so why? And If not, reasons? :)
In a way no. I believe that god is just the sense of existence and that the bible is all symbolism for good character. it helps teach you to be humble, be good, and do not do bad things. But if there is a "god", then god must like to just cause pain in my life. if there is a god, then he has taken away everything i have held dear to me in my life, has put me through hell, has almost killed me several times, and has risked my health several times. After all of what I go through, i stopped believing. Now I rely on logic. You can't argue with a religious person because everything is god to them. After trillions of years, do you think god suddenly decided to make a race. And how come it was all the way back then when it wasn't documented, that god told us to write a book, and do all of these crazy things. How do we not know that jesus was a crazy man that hallucinated and led a bunch of people, and then sacrificed himself. He sacrificed himself, for what. Nothing has change, and in a way, the world has only gotten worse. I believe that there is no god, and no one created existence, and that existence was never created, but has always just existed. If you have a heard of the "god particle" it is a particle that can create matter. And every religion can't be right. And if there is a god, how come he only appeared when nothing was documented, and why hasn't he ever sent any angels since to do his bidding? Now people argue anything with god. HOw come he doesn't help us when we need him, "because god can not interfere with us."I view this as an excuse for not being able to see him. How come, on matter how much we pray, it doesn't change much. No matter how much we pray for people with cancer, or for starving children, nothing ever happens. And how come this god made all of these other planets with nothing on them, how come he didn't help the dinosaurs, how come he didnt help 9/11, how come he didn't stop the nazis. I believe people only believe in heaven and hell because they just want to believe that their life wasn't fpr nothing, and that they havnt learned so much, and done everything, just to turn off permanently. They fear that there existince is useless, so they just want to believe that they will live on. Again, hell i symbolism that if you do bad things, you get a punishment. Heaven and hell are also smbolisms of consequences in my opinion. How did people come up with heaven and hell, did god tell them again, then why doesn't god just come down and show himself, because hes busy? No, because there is no god. Humans have history on wanting to be able to rely on someone, and to serve. We SERVE our government, the knights served THEIR king, the slaves SERVED their owners. People just want to believe that something is protecting them. Did make make the terrorists attack us, no they acted on their own free will, god didnt make them do shit. God didn't make us win a war, our men did it after extensive training, god didnt give you the will to survive, your adrenaline did. God didnt choose to kill my mom, the murderer acted on his own free will. People just want to blame something, they un-knowingly want to blame a higher power just because they want to believe it was evil. A praid every night for my dad to come back home, but that didnt help anything, and the devil didnt make him do drugs, he once again, acted on his own free will. If you analyze a prayer, its just people putting their hands together, and asking for something, which only happens by coincidence. Lets say their praying for a cure to a disease, and it finally happens years later, god didnt answer their prayer, humans did enough work to come up with a cure, not god. Please explain to me how god helped make that cure in any way when it was just hard work. Then people say god is everything and everyone, no, matter is everything and everyone. God didn't make us birth, sperm cells and eggs did. God didn't create trees, evolution did. How come god let millions of people die to the nazis, how come god let our twin towers be destroyed, how come god lets the taliban kill people? With my life, people say god just wants to make me stronger, no he ****ing doesn't, Its just events that led up that caused the events, i've become more mature becomes i have to help my family ON MY OWN, not god, ME! I mean, how come no other human was resurrected, WHICH WE HAVE NO DAMN PROOF OF! HUMANS WROTE THE BIBLE, NOT GOD, HUMANS!
He does not protect us, OUR DAMN MEN IN UNIFORM THAT DID MONTHS OF TRAINING DID, WITH THEIR OWN HARD WORK! God has never prevent evil, only the hard work of humans has. And once again, how does every religion get its ideas, from god? well then means god is a pathological liar because all of them cannot be right. Think about how many people have killed eachother over religion, why would god let that happen. If he does exist, why are we so special. Space is an endless frontier, with infinite planets and life, and how come were so special? Why you ask, because we just want to believe we're special.We commit massacres, genocide, kill his animals, and pollute his world, and how come he doesn't stop us. In the bible, if he's against abortion and killing, why doesn't he just do it himself, because he's fake. Some other proof that he's made up is that he is thought to be a man. Back then when he was created, everything had to be a man, the ones with power had to be a man, all the people with rights had to be men, all the people in the army and police had to be men, because they thought men were superior, and since god is superior, he is of coarse, a man man figment of our imagination. We also have consistent replacement of supernatural explanations of the world with natural ones. How come god let my dad beat my mom and me, because he doesn't exist. Why did god let my best friends get hit by a car and die, how come god let my grandparents die in an accident. because he doesn't exist, how come god gave me cancer, because he doesn't exist, how come all of this has happened and im only 15, because he doesn't exist, how come we have drugs that can kill us and harm others, because he doesn't exist. If he wants us to stay so faithful, i dare him to show himself and prove that everything in the bible is real, but id just be talking to a wall, because would happen, why, he doesn't exist. here is no evidence to corroborate the claim that anything supernatural exists. All explained phenomena have been found to possess natural explanations, supporting the veracity of argumentum ad ignorantiam's intrinsically fallacious nature and inability to serve as a valid justification for a conclusion. The universe appears exactly the way you would expect a universe to appear if it were *not* created by a supernatural being. Why would god let the black death roam free, because he doesn't exist. Pointing out a logical fallacy is not an "excuse".
If a god exists, why would he hide from all humans and then punish those who don't believe in him? That is one of the most idiotic premises I have ever encountered. There is NO evidence, none at all, that a god or gods exist. Show me a photo. Just one. If your god exists in your mind, I sure hope you are holding him accountable for the wars that have been fought in his name and the death and destruction for which he is responsible. Perhaps he can explain to you why he allows children to starve to death or die of malaria in huge numbers? Please tell the reasons why Santa Claus doesn't exist. Show me absolute proof the Tooth Fairy is not real. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDHJ4ztnldQ. http://www.tektonics.org/guest/300proof.html. http://hinessight.blogs.com/church_o...t-exist.html.I accepted god, i prayed 5 times a day, i never asked for anything, all i did was thank him. Then he did all of that to me. I thanked him, all my friends turned on me and i became the loser at school, i thanked him, he gave me cancer, i thanked him, he let my only friends die in a car accident, i thanked him, he killed my grandparents in a car accident, i thanked him, he let my dad beat me and my mom, i thanked him, my dad got addicted to drugs, stole from us, and abandoned us, i thanked him, my mom was murdered. You thanked him, nazi slaughtered the world, you thanked him, 9/11 happened, you thanked him, god lets terrorists, extremists, and the taliban kill. Read all of this, and all of the links, and give me a civilized and a decent argument, provided with fact, truth, rationalism, and actual proof, and you shall get a cookie.
