(Not judging on any one or there religion.) over time somehow people have gotten others to believe in an invisable man in the sky. And he puts u on earth, gives u 10 rules to follow. And if you don't follow them u will go straight through the gates of hell, where u will suffer and burn and choke for all eternity. BUT.. He loves you<3:)

it's just never made any sense to me. If u have any imput let me kno, I'm not trying to go against anyones beliefs.

God is one thing.. It's more spiritual
Religion is just a way to control people.

( I don't believe in either).

some say god is everything, but i haven't had evidence proving that god is a piece of toast. there are obviously some materials which are more precious than others, for example, what people are made of is worth more than what bread is made of. although, if you want to get philosophical and somewhat scientific, most things have similar base components now that we know about string theory. if everything is made of little strings of energy, everything is made of the same things. the difference between things then becomes what they do rather than what they're made of. a piece of toast cannot move, but people can move... so yeah. there is a difference.

In answer (from my experience) to your question, I think as stated above, the relationship with god is strictly mentally and spiritually. Religion began, or so wed like to believe, as a way to help govern civilization. In a time with absolutely no laws and nothing to abide by, they had to find something to demonstrate morals. The problem lies here...how? How does one "create" the first laws of man? What is right, and wrong? So these pioneers, eager to bring peace (as many stoner types wish also) may have either truly seen a god that guided them, or created these stories as a simple measure to influence the masses. Had they not wrote so dramatically, so entertaining, how would one keep these masses' attention? Personally I think religion is its own worst enemy. Some people can only begin to feel god thru attempts at church. Yet, all of us feel something from a higher being, our own conscience, mind, body and spirit. We are god and we know what is right. These books tried to depict the pain of sin that only experience and consequence can show. If you've read this far please let it sink in. We know how to make this situation right, just ask yourself (god) for the strength to act.

im an agnostic on principle, but im practically an atheist. i think its technically a logical possibility that god exists. there's no real proof or disproof. but by the same token.... we may not even be here... we may be in the matrix or some shit... there's no proof or disproof for that either. i just think the chances of that are fucking remote, same as for god existing. so im basically an atheist.

im christian and i would respectfully disagree with yall. ive pondered these same things. however, several reasons keep me from renouncing my faith. 1. i find it hard to believe that there was a giant explosion and everything came into existence. 2. i find it even harder to believe that lightning struck a puddle of primordial goo and life was created. 3. i think something as complex as a human (especially the human brain) would have to be designed by someone or something much more intelligent than we are. 4. i dont blame god for remaining invisible. i think he tried to have a standing relationship with us and we rejected him, and with the way society is now, id stay invisible too. 5. i dont think god is quite so strict on sending people to hell as many religious people think, i think as long as you live a good life you will make it. however, people like osama bin laden...well i wouldnt want to spend eternity with him. 6. finally, im kind of an artsy person, and i feel like sometimes the things i created dont come from me, but rather through me. especially when im playing guitar. sorry to be so long winded but yeah

I've come to believe that everything even us is just energy. And we have proof of having energy and forces. No proof of a god of any sort, just mythical stories told so we could understand lifes energy. And on a more scientifically note.. The anser is DMT. Only released 3times in ur life( when ur born, when u dream, and when u die) DMT is also the strongest phsycadelic. So I believe when u die, if u die happy u have a good " trip" ( heaven) and if not u have a bad "trip" ( hell) . The only stories we've heard about heaven and he'll were the ones who have died and came back to life. They never got passed the trip, so we will never kno for sure how life is after death.

I don't think the human brain had to have been "created". Sure, it's advanced, but almost every living creature on this planet has some form of a brain, some creatures which came millions of years before us. Surely, they would have to have been created first then, no? Perhaps we are just a brain planet - it's a simple intelligent design that has evolved over millions of years to be the best form of intelligence. In some species(like us), the brain is even self-aware.

here we have an ideal example of how atheists and religious fundamentalists can't see things from anyone else's eyes, when an atheist says there's no daddy in the sky and when a fundamentalist says that an explosion didn't create everything they're not sitting at opposite ends of the debate, they're lying in bed next to each other, using the exact same kind of reasoning to convince themselves that 'the other side' has gotten it wrong.. more than that, they mean that 'the other side' is made up of a load of dribbling retards, and how can you have a discussion with that attitude?

The theory of evolution, a large part of the debate, is indeed a scientific theory. Meaning that although it can never actually be proven (much like god can never be disproven), it is backed by all of the scientific evidence and there is none that goes against it. Making the theory of evolution for all extensive purposes a theory to go off of.

that's what i mean when i say that atheists and religious fundamentalists are bedfellows, they both think that if life evolved naturally and everything wasn't built by a cosmic tinkerer then it means that there's no God, or at least that life wasn't deliberately designed.. and i for one see no reason to think that all of this wasn't planned out, maybe God worked backwards from the desired end, set up the initial conditions so that the universe would produce human minds that can think about these things .. i don't see why that's impossible.. it wouldn't matter to me if it was all an accident anyway, that's just a theory that i've tried to wrap around what i believe to be the facts, if some of the facts are wrong then the theory's wrong and i'd be happy to accept that if it came out to be that way.. and this is the problem that atheists and religious fundamentalists have, they attach too much to fragile things, especially fundamentalists, they think that science threatens the reality of the world which is nonsense, the world's the way it is, if there's a God then there's a God and no scientific theory can disprove that there is, and if there isn't then there just isn't and it doesn't make a difference what else is true

But even if there is a God, why would it be a "Christian God", or pretty much any God depicted by an organized religion. The stuff "God" does in the old testament is fucked up, and something I believe a perfect being would not do. God is depicted as having human emotions. And if there is a God, there still may not be an afterlife, as I believe the concept of heaven was created by humans to escape death in a sense. The ultimate form of evolution, not only living longer, but living eternally.

Humans have 100 billion synapses in their brains, octopi have 130 billion, if we're god's chosen race, why does the humble octopus hold more potential? Also you say you're Christian but you basically cherry-pick the parts of your religion you like and mostly your idea of God to your set of moral standards because you like the idea that you can live forever after you die better then the truth.

I think man created god because we didn't understand the wonders of nature. ex volcanoes, tsunamis, tornadoes, solar eclipses, meteor showers, etc etc.

I also think that if we make it to the future without blowing ourselves up in a pointless war over drugs, oil or religion, people will look back at how "religion" was something people turned to when we didn't understand particular aspects of life.

Religion is a way to gather money from people and preach to them a specific agenda. HOWEVER i believe in spirituality. We are just a in this part of "LIFE" I do believe however in a higher entity or "gods." There is too much evidence of weird flying shit from back when the egyptians were around. MAYBE we are like ants in someone else's world. Just as ants don't know what the world real is, we don't really know what the world is either. Make sense? WE are all right. Thats the best part!

Idk i believe in god. But if you don't that's your choice. Having something to believe in and look forward to is the only thing that gets me through everyday. I'm not some bible thump-er or anything like that. We all sin differently and i'm in no position to judge. But as for your mentioning of if you don't follow ten rules you get thrown into hell isn't true. It says in the bible that all you have to do to go to heaven is believe in Jesus. No rules, no requirement, just a little faith. And if that's all it take to save my soul from possibly suffering for the rest of eternity in hell, imma definitely take that.

he loves you so much he was tortured to death for your sins and sicknesses, nailed to a cross.. however.. he gives every single person in this world an open door at least once in their life to understand his love and mercy, and it is then up to the individual whether to accept him as a lord, savior, father, protector, and know his love, mercy and joy.. if they do not.. then it's their own fault really.. it's an awful thing.. but that's why so many followers come off as really nagging and pushy with their ideas.. because they live through jesus's LOVE and just want everyone to be able to experience it, and save them from damnation.. it is hardly about those 10 things either it's about living right in God's eyes.. which really says don't be a douchebag, and have mercy on others and humble yourself.. there is a battle of good v.s. evil everyday that we don't see as humans.. everything happens for a reason, but there is a far greater power, we would never even begin to understand because it is so complex.. if you think about it, how could you ever comprehend something so extensive as an entire universe being built, never mind a single living being on earth... i read a childrens novel, it was my little sisters and i absolutely positively never ever read any books ever...but everyone in my family had read it so i did out of curiosity.. it's called "Heaven Is For Real" there is a film that recently was released about it soon about a 3 year old boy who had a near death exp and was brought to heaven, and returned to earth.. but there are unexplainable things that he witnessed that are in the bible that he told his parents who had not spoke to him about any of it.. you should definitely go see it, i'm sure it will answer your question much better than i'm able to.. sorry if i sounded like a radical christian, because that is soo not what i am.. i don't even put a label on my religion. i just figured i'd be able to answer your question with accuracy and much detail! ;)

I don't agree with everyone saying that religion is a way to control people. I think it was initially built with sincere ideas, but taken for something that humans can use to their benefit. All religions are an attempt to explain the world around them, they weren't PURPOSELY created to control the people. Well I wouldn't say Christianity anyways. Religion has been corrupt by humans, and that's sad because I like the idea of religion. I just hate how some people put it into practice. Especially the whole, "You are not of my religion so you are wrong and I am right" crap. Or putting themselves above people. But it's just like santa clause. They told you he was real, and you believed in him because all the other kids knew about santa. But if you were never told of him, you'd never come up with the idea of him, or that during the night he came and dropped presents off.. You'd just be like, "oh mom and dad got me presents". I wonder if I don't tell me kid about god, would he ever develop a religion of his own. I hope he turns buddhist or something. Not following a mystical being, but a great teacher that actually once lived.

 
 
Tue, 05/20/2014 - 2:51pm

I believe that Christianity and the Bible have both been altered from what they originally were. Think about how many dictators there have been in history who were able to control everyone using religion. It seems silly to me to think that they didn't even once change the Bible. If you could change the Bible you could control everyone without them even knowing about it. I believe that's where hatred for gay people came from, and probably many other similar ideas. I'm a Christian, but I only choose to believe the parts of the religion that make sense to me. I believe that getting into Heaven is easier than most people think, because otherwise it would be unfair. I think that you only have to have an overall positive impact on the world and others. I also think that God didn't want people to "worship" him. I mean, think about that for a second. How could some supposedly all-powerfu and perfect being be so insecure and petty that he requires others to devote their lives to him or else he throws them into a pit of flames for eternity? That's ridiculous. I think God is a chill dude who just wants to be buds with his people.

JahFaz Says:

One must abandon subjectivity in order to truly appreciate the reality that there is no good or evil, only mechanical events and humans interpreting them as such. Common religion requires the idea that there is some sort of divine path, one which must be walked by each man, this is simply not true, because divinity itself is subjective. If god is the ultimate judge he is the most closed minded of all creatures. Who the fuck let him decide whats "Right"? If you have subscribed to any belief system which you cannot provide empirical, peer reviewed evidence for, you are being mislead. The only way you can get people to fear death is convincing them there is a "good" or a "bad" way for things to go after that death. There is only nature, and the natural order, anything which might be said to move against that nature is only a part of that nature. All that is unplanned, is already a part of the plan. Get it?

actually you are judging someone's religion, and them as well by implication, you're fully entitled to your opinions and you don't have to apologize for having them, be honest about them tho .. and it's not quite accurate, how you've described it, it's only atheists who think that God's supposed to be a man in the sky, and the idea that man's been given rules to follow and if he breaks any he'll be punished for it, that's not quite what christians believe, if you're an atheist you don't believe that God's a real thing anyway, why not for the sake of argument think in terms of the kind of god that christians actually believe in, it won't hurt you and you won't appear ignorant and small minded, the christian belief is more like .. a guy's built a fence near the edge of a cliff, you're free to jump over it if you like but it'll be your funeral.. or a sky diving instructor, you'd better open your parachute when you're told to and if you don't, don't say you weren't warned.. of course it was God that made hell to begin with you might argue but i don't think that's exactly right, another way to understand it is that hell is heaven when you're not prepared for it, it's just the way it works, the way we are, according to this idea of course God loves us if it's given us so much good advice for ages.. i anticipate the next objection someone might bring up, if God cared all that much about us why not reveal himself to everyone once and for all and remove all doubt.. but what if that's just not possible, a man can't talk to ants, ants have to work out what humans are from what they've seen of them, how is a god going to show its face like i would to another person.. 'an omnipotent god could remove all our doubts', that's just according to your definition of omnipotence and God doesn't have to play by your rules .. and maybe that's missing the point anyway, maybe as a higher being God realizes that having a choice in things is the most important thing and to remove that would be to damn everybody in stead of a few.. or in stead of 'not everybody'.. 'why couldn't we have been made without the capacity for sin but still have free will', but how would that be having free will? .. and on and on

hell was created to scare people into Christianity. no other religion has a hell (except branch offs from Christianity) because religion was the only thing that people actually gave their life too. so they invented this place of suffering so they could could control the people who feared it. because think about it. a god is worshiped. and a king is too. but allot of people would think constantly, I want to be the king, what makes him so special. because he has money? education? but when you think of a god. he's something that no one can be.. so they're looked up to a tremendous amount more than a king, just because their actions arent seen. they cant be judged for wrong, because they dont exist in the present perspective.. so they cant make any action to belittle themselves.
