Re: Do you believe in God? If so why? And If not, reasons? :)
I don't believe in god. I don't see it as implausible that the whole clockwork theory could be true, but the idea that there is an omnibenevolent Abrahamic god is laughable.
If there is a god, he's a sadistic ass who loves drowning babies and causing famine. He doesn't love you, in all likelihood he hates you (fight club ).
Think about it, God made us in his image (following the Abrahamic philosophy of course), humans LOVE to make each other suffer, and people suffer for no apparent reason. If anyone of human nature had absolute control of the universe they would make people suffer. Most people wouldn't admit to it, nor do they honestly think they would, but they would.
Humans HATE each other, we pass by homeless people and scoff at them, we hate everyone richer then us and hate everyone poorer then us. We hate people like us because they THINK and EXPECT to relate to us. We hate other religions, we're biased towards race, we're nice to girls we find attractive and don't give a shit about others.
If there is a god he's just like this.
