The words God and religion seem to be interconnected in many cultures. The questions possed are the very questions that they believe will be answered when they pass on. It stems from the belief that only their Creator can answer these questions. It is my belief that any significant scientific finding would simply be ignored by religious fanatics. That doesn't mean we should stop looking by any means.

It's disheartening to hear skeptics and unbelievers dismiss man's innate need to believe in God as the result of ignorance and fear. I'm neither ignorant nor fearful. And I choose to believe in God. As for the religious fanatics out there--why group all believers into the same pot? The majority of believers are educated, open-minded individuals. And remember, we are the majority! I've found that fanatic skeptics abound. To me, they seem to be just as narrow-minded as those they view in disdain. In my opinion, extremism in any form can be a sign of ignorance. I'll respect your decision not to b... [More]

I've found that fanatic skeptics abound. To me, they seem to be just as narrow-minded as those they view in disdain. No, Skeptics are just not so gullible to believe in everything you tell them! They search for the truth themselves. Thats why they test things first, you cannot test god, you cannot see god, you cannot talk to god, god does not talk back to you. Whether you like it or not, god and religion is under the microscope and we are getting to the bottom of this to understand why people believe, unfortanatly some of you here are in the group of those who believe in a blind faith.

People who are scared mostly believe in God. I don't and I can see I am much happier then most people who do believe, people are stricted that they can't do anything. But i have worked in a videostore and most strict religious people bought the 18+ movies. Which really shows me how corrupted religion is. I know some people who are really nice and I can get along with them really good, but the people who are really ill-minded are outnumbered. I really can understand the quote ''Don't let a fairy tale control your live'' showing a picture of God and Jezus. 509763[/snapback] Your babyish ignorant... [More]

Alright, But them experiences, did god actually talk to you? Did god specificly do something for you or help your family in anyway? without human help? Did he work through somebody as some may say.. These experiences, how you know they are anything to do with god, Since I have no more knowledge on the experiences that made you believe in god I cannot really comment on it. I dont refuse to believe in god, But GOD isnt a priority in my life, Praying is not a priority because god does not show himself and he does not communicate. I believed what people told me up untill I started to think for mys... [More]

We have no concept of our minds and bodies...of their full potential. so if we exist within god, why do you think god would have a concept of us? do you think god even knows we exist? mabye god is just as blind about the universe of god, just as we are as blind to our own inner universes.

i define "gods" as a human construct to allow our minds to explain the unknown, and give order and meaning to existance. As such, I have come to the conclusion that "gods" only exist within the minds of men. That is not to say personal belief in said "gods" is good or bad. It is whatever each individual draw from it. Belief can be stronger than anything. I think all life is interconnected, and know that we know very little of our world (and what lies beyond our perception). Thus it is premature to dismiss the possibilities of other life just because we have no evidence of it. Even if it found ... [More]
