The Bible is an awesome book you should read it. Way better than Harry Potter.

Neither of them are that good of a read. If you want to read a good religous text I'd go for the qu'ran, I thought it was better the bible. Btw if you're wondering I'm an atheist but I do enjoy tryin to understand religon

I am an atheist too and whenever I read the bible I'm taken aback by some of the stories and how spectacularly easy to relate to they usually are. I believe everyone should expose themselves to as much of the world as possible, that which they endorse as well as that which they don't.

btw this highdea is hilarious

Yeh. In my opinion most religions are for the weak minded. For people who blindly follow what they are told. It is mainly used as a way to control people. It also makes it easier to deal with the death of loved ones. I dont need the comfort of religion to get me through life, theres other things for that ;)

actually sir, i think it was quite on the contrary. you are scared you are going to hell so you think that by not believig youll be saved. i am very strong willed and do what i want, for the most part, and i still believe in god. i lose nothing if he isnt real.

Wrong. Being scared of something denotes acceptance of its existence. Non-religous people do not believe in hell. If a person were scared of hell, he would become religious to assure himself he would not go to hell.

I believe being non-religious requires more strong will, because if we are wrong, there is hell, if you are wrong, nothing bad will happen to you.

Also, how can you just claim that someone is scared of something? How self-righteous. And no, you do not do what you want, you do what God wants.

yes but what he asks is worth assurance against an eternity in hell. i think its the after life you have to worry about, friend, rather than life. but thats just my opinion. to each his own. i believe your going to hell, you think im talking to myself if i pray in my head at every chance i remember( not as often as i would like. now, while that does make a situation uncomfortable( to say the least lol) its never stopped me from being friends with atheists. but if an atheist tries to tell me im stupid because i believe in god, we will have problems. not because, i am so in confident that i need to defend my religion, but for the simple fact that you called me stupid lol.

The problem with doing what God wants to get into Heaven is, you're not living your life, and if there ISN'T anything after life, you never really lived... And if there is, I'm sure you would get used to Hell after a while... Everyone moves, adapts, or dies... If you CAN'T move and you're already dead, all you can do is adapt. Praying is fine and being benevolent is also good, but not living for yourself just makes most people tend to be uptight or angry most of their life. Not saying you are, but I know a lot of Christians and they're all so stern and direct.

No can get use to helll because the devil or whatever u wanna call him makes you hurt and burn that's his job he makes u fight others for relief from what people call hell like the seven sins they all have different torture things like there is one were like your in this pile of lava and you have to fight others to get to land so ur basically burning alive for eternity I don't think u can adapt to that

Chitown Says:

You've made a very good point, baked_blazed, and I truly wish I believed in god, but religion just never made sense to me. Too many things in the bible just happen with no explanation other than "its a miracle." However, if there is such a benevolent god, then when I die he will understand why I did not believe in religion, and I will be forgiven and admitted to heaven. So if I'm wrong I lose nothing either.

Exactly. A benevolent deity wouldn't send people to hell simply for not believing or believing in another religion they have been brought up with.

God doesn't SEND people to Hell. He gave us a choice, and we decide our outcome.

myname Says:

Then God cannot be benevolent and must be a sadist. Where is the benevolence in giving us the ability to choose to believe or choose not to believe, while knowing that if we exercise the right he gave us, there is a 50% chance we will make a choice that will condemn us to eternal torture? Very SAW-like.

I thought being a "stoner" thought opening your mind to more options... be it religion or not.

stop bashing religion, clearly the thought of a higher power appeals to people, and always will.
I'm sure we'd all sleep a little better (not high) with the knowledge that theres something more than this life...

anyone who defends the bible is delusional and needs to evolve. the evil in that book is far more prevalent than the good. if you believe in a God that's fine but seriously the bible is nothing but condemnation for attributes of human nature.

dweb1091 Says:

yea it is a condemnation of human nature, because human nature is pretty fucking wrong a lot. We do some pretty shitty things and it tells us how to not do them. Plus i never prove the existence of God with the bible, I just base my faith on it theres a big difference.

your an idiot, the bible doesnt teach us that being black is wrong. However like you said before its a condemnation of human nature. We as humans tend to look out for ourselves and worship the wrong things like money sex and power. doing this leads to some pretty bad things happening. The bible simply tells how to avoid falling into this kind of thing by telling us to love god everyone else and ourselves. Its stupid people that misinterpret the book that see it as a condemnation of black people and homosexuals.

k guys enough is enough.
this is how i see religion. its a given set of rules to live out your life. even if god isnt real, who cares? being Christian is about being a good person in life, and make the best of what you got. to tell you the truth i dont believe in religion either, but thats just my two cents on it.

why is everyone arguing over the credibility of the bible? if someone believes something, then that's their business, is it not? who cares what anyone believes if it isn't hurting anyone?

McTokin Says:

It IS hurting people when out government attacks foreign countries for oil while rallying support with "I believe that God wants everyone to be free." Religion is a tool used by the people in charge to hide their true intentions and its sure as hell working. The Bible claims that God is a jealous God, but a Holy being would not feel jealousy. Are you sure you aren't worshiping the devil?

I believe religion was created for people who don't want to accept that maybe nothing happens after they die. Maybe our existence is purely an accident and that we have no purpose and no reason to be here. It's depressing to think that but the evidence stacks up in that corner of the ring.
If religion and God helps you cope with things, then thats great, but I don't think a person should have to lean on something else to tell them right and wrong and make them be a good person. You should just know what is good and what is bad.
Even the founding fathers of America disliked religion. Ben Franklin was quoted as saying that religion is going to be the only thing holding the US back, and he was right.

It's pretty clear these days that RELIGION is a crock... but that still leaves us with the question of "what is God?"... Personally I side with the Buddhist belief that God is everything.. Not a person necessarily, but more like an interconnected all-permeating divine substance... Which is a big reason why I love the smoke! It makes me feel so much more connected to everything around me. what about ya'll ?

 
 
Tue, 03/02/2010 - 9:00pm
McTokin Says:

That's the same view that I've come to realize without ever doing any research on Buddhist views lol. The way I see it everyone and everything is a small part of "God", and therefor no religion can be absolutely correct. It's like your finger trying to understand how your whole body works. Not gonna happen.

potleaf Says:

its not gonna happen because your finger has no brain. to be considered an entity you must have a focal point of function and all bits and pieces that utilize this point are part of the single entity. humans and god = finger and human is not a valid statement
