I definately believe in a Creator, Supreme Being, etc. who I think is God. I don't quite believe in Adam and Eve being the first two human beings. I think God didn't create man at first, He first created dinosaurs but wiped them out. Then He helped life along afterwards and when primates came along, He had the idea for humans, so He made evolution happen. I think God made evolution happen because for apes to evolve into humans by mutations and stuff is very unlikely and would take a lot longer than it actually took, IMO.

You are very right, -[[NeverLetGo]]-, I hate wars over religion and lots of Christians believing they're superior to atheists, Jews, Muslims, etc. and being hateful to their fellow man cuz they don't go to Christian church every Sunday. Combining all religions into a loving, accepting, very flexible one we could finally live in peace. Yeah I know, wishful thinking, but in the words of John Lennon "You may say I'm a dreamer/But I'm not the only one/Someday you might join us/And the world will be as one"

I don't believe in god. I don't believe in any kind of religious philosophy or anything similer. It maks me angry to even think about the horrors of religion. I think we should all burn our bibles.

I did hear an interesting idology from a friend of mine though. He said, that this is what he got from the bible:

In the beginning god created a perfect world. And there was no sin or hate or any of that. But there was an uprising in heaven and Lucifer, God's most prized angel, was cast out of Heaven down into the pits of hell ((werever this "hell" is)) along with 2/3 of the angels of heaven. Satan then began to "fuck" with gods perfect world, tainting humankind. This created free will. A good against evil kind of dilema. And this tension between good and evil, between satan and god, will eventually snap, and the war of armageddon will be upon us. Humans simply cought in a power struggle between two heavenly beings. But we are the last army, whos side do we choose?

And the bible is so contradictory and BS becasue god is an absent god. He allows us to live independently and satan taints us. So literally, even the bible is no pure.


Its all bs of course. But interesting sounding. Would make a good book ((HAHAHAHAHAHA))


""The New Law of Righteousness," that there "shall be no buying or selling, no fairs nor markets, but the whole earth shall be a common treasury for every man," and "there shall be none Lord over others, but every one shall be a Lord of himself.""

I'm not that religious... I say I have my own kinda religion because I think that the church is full of shit, and all they want its power, and more of it, like normal human beings. My religion, only follows god and Jesus... nothing more, nothing less. I beleive in god and Jesus, but I think that the church is full of bs.
I don't agree with half their rules.

Why do we need churches? why do we need buildings to show our faith? Can't I just be faithfull and done? NO! I have to go to church, loose one hour a week of my life, then confess all the shit I do to someone I don't even know, to take some bread, and wine.. I have tons of it at home!

But its true... people wrote the bible.
HUMAN BEINGS wrote the bible, so it doesn't really have to be true what they say... no one's perfect

I think the reason that God is "absent" in saving us from evil (someone brought this up) is because he gave us free will and He'd want us to make the right decision ourselves, so we can sort of be our own deliverers from evil.

And I think that God doesn't save us from death lots of the time is because maybe the person who's dying, he's made plans for them in their afterlife so he's just gonna let it happen cuz he knows their spirit will be o.k.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill

It is a BS excuse. We would still have free will if god showed us he was real. Acording to the bible jesus showed himself to thousands after he rose.
