I used to believe in God. I would look around at the beautiful world I lived in and wonder how anyone couldn't believe in Him.

Then I moved to New Jersey.

What most people are concerned with is how "God," whatever the definition, is relevant to their political, ethical, religious, moral, scientific, etc aspirations, beliefs, goals, etc and the theories they have and make within these domains of human discourse.

God does not exist. The biggest proof of this is the life of everyfuckingday.

It's not debateable.  You can't debate something that cant be observed or tested.  The main issue here is simple.  The religions of the past and present are bull shit designed by men to capitalize off peoples fear, ignorance, and confuse their sense of spirituality for control and profit.  A lot of people realize that todays religions are bull shit, but they still wont let go of the idea of a God because it has been so instilled into them.  Also because they confuse their spirituality ( a sense that all humans obviously have ) with this notion that a god must exist.  But just because you have a part of you that is able to recognize things beyond what most humans consider normal, does not mean that a higher being exist.  Its an illogical conclusion that is made by so many because its been rammed down your throat since you were a kid.  Think for yourself, question authority.

let's hope it burns out in the next few years. The desert will be a much more comfortable place then.

what bothers me nowadays is that the internet is flooded with creationist-modern-design-whatever-idiots who think they have to tell their point of limited view to everyone everywhere.

it doesnt matter if its an article about black holes, genetic science or the discovery of an extinct animal: if there is a comment section nearby, you will definitely find an unrelated discussion started by some guy who wrote something like "i duz not think thiz iz real cuz i believez in gawd and teh bible tellz uz sumthing different, but its ok if you haz your own opinionz, BYE" and then you have an endless debate about who believes in god and who doesnt and who doesnt give a fuck ....

honestly. i say everyone with common sense should just ignore all this anti-science bullshit, and creationists should stop pronounce their worthless opinions everywhere.

and i dont think taking the bible word for word shows that you believe in god. it just shows that you're a narrow-minded sheep. our society should know better in 2009...

The streets have gone dark. They've been dark for days. We board up the house. Hide upstairs and wait!

variable, i agree with everything you said except for the first sentence, as we are all clearly debating over 10 pages of posts.

i personally do not believe in "God", I believe that there is something bigger than myself and humans alike. I'd rather not put a name to the blank face.

Some of the most intelligent evolutionists believe in God. How did all these formulas come together.

I don't believe in the biblical God, but I still read the bible regularly. Why? you may ask. Because theres still some good stuff in there.

(Matthew, mark, luke, john, proverbs) Just read some of jesus' teachings... or are you narrow minded.

Thank god for the internet (lol( for I wouldnt be able to sit and spew out blasphemy out of my ass, while looking at some child pron and gambling. Yeah the religion sure has screwed up this world...maybe money))

I wouldn't really call this thread a debate.  Its more of a casual discussion seeing as how pretty much no one is backing up anything with facts.  Its all just opinions.  Debates are usually more scientific than that.

Prove to me that some of the most intelligent evolutionist in the world believe in god.  Show me proof.  Because that sentence is complete bull shit.  Its a lie they spread around in church and private schools because no one can really prove it right or wrong.  But way to believe the propaganda.  Do they get you to tithe too?

I also have an appreciation for a lot of the teachings in the bible.  I think its a shame that so much wisdom is surrounded by so much bull shit. 

And religion has screwed up the world much worse than any casino, child pornographer, online casino, or really any online function.  Just take a step back and think about the magnitude of influence over the centuries that religion has had over societies and civilizations.  Even the "religious" fuck, gamble, screw people out of money, and like to jerk off to little kids ( *cough* catholic priest *cough* ) so dont try to point the finger at something else because its convenient.

What I'm about to say is totally subjective, I know that.


But this thread title is the most stupid question someone could ever ask.
