Yes, but nothing that’s taught in churches Have you ever think that maybe there is no God? Yes if there is a God then why so many Religions out there? Because people are fcking idiots and they fall for any popular delusion, if others are going along with it. i mean theres only one God right? No. There are infinite gods, just like there are infinite possibilities in life. Or maybe there are none. But the idea that there is just one choice is pretty lame. Of course every religion will sell you that idea, just like every brand of detergent will tell you there is only ONE stain cleaner that works.

I just haven’t confirmed from myself if I really believe in a deity. But I don’t believe the gods in religions. There’s a lot of religions and some of them aren’t even true and are just made by hypocrite people. Log in to Reply n.retro_waver 1/9/2019 - 12:16 pm I’d like to think there might be, but with all the crap thats been happening all over the place I’m more inclined to think there isn’t. Religions are made up to suit a particular group of people. It enforces a certain code of conduct that everyone in that group is made to live by to make it easier for the authorities to govern. As for there being just one god – maybe there is and its just the different groups speaking different languages living in different places that decided their version is the one true version and decided to go fight with the group over yonder and so all hell broke loose. Because thats just how people are. And where might god be while this is happening? Perhaps up in its starship looking at us and having a good laugh because the people down here are fighting over it. Log in to Reply Once 1/9/2019 - 5:49 pm I have a difficult time believing this vast universe just poofed into existence by accident. I believe there is intelligence behind it, but have absolutely no idea what that intelligence might be, nor do I need to know. I lie under a sky full of stars and find the answer that satisfies me. As for religions, nothing more than culturally based theories attempting to explain our creator, our purpose and our destiny. Stories and fairy tales, crafted by wishful and egotistical himans who actually believe that they can figure out the inconceivable and put it in a pretty box with a handy label on it. Chuckle. Typical human thinking. Like ice cream, there are so many religions because not everyone can agree on the same flavor. Are any of them right? Chuckle. Who the hell knows. I suppose when I’m dead I might know, but then again, maybe I’ll just decay and feed worms.

There is just as much proof in my experience that human systems exist (math, history, philosophy) as spiritual systems. The current scientific model is fundamentally flawed for dealing with special or rare phenomena. Some events happen rarely, and how are we supposed to scientifically test if the only evidence left is in our brains? I have doubted God. There have been times I wanted to disbelieve, because it would have made killing myself or hurting others possible/easier. It doesn’t change the way things are (per my perception), what I want is irrelevant to what is. Religion is an entirely seperate matter. Whether any of them are seeking the God I know is between them and him (or her, heck if I care about the gender of an immortal.) I can’t prove that they are right. There are some within the Christian faith that understand God as I do: ultimate compassion, ultimate love, ultimate understanding and forgiveness. I really don’t care if there are other Gods. I have enough going on with the one. It’s unclear what comes after we die since there are only a few people who are agreed to have done it and come back. In modern society there are people who make claims but their claims also line up with the input the brain gets while dying. We haven’t a clue what happens after the body dies. God claims to, and religion claims to have been told by God. I judge God a trustworthy source, and everyone else is suspect. Essentially my belief in God comes down to my lack of understanding or ability beyond myself, and his providing for me in ways that can’t be explained. I write about God all the time and I still can’t convince a single person. He’ll convince you if your heart is ready. If however you’re waiting for Christians to represent Christ, Buddhists to represent Buddha and Taoists to represent truth, you’ll be waiting some time. One seeks the divine out of desire to find it, not because one finds it on the sidewalk. If you seek it, you’ll find it.

People argue for the religion of “Agnostism” for example because they see no definate proof of a God(s) but they are sitting on unknown, possibly a God exists, because they are the religion that thinks you have to be able to see it to believe in it (A God). They do not know if any religious claims are accurate and accountable from the lack of evidence. The different Religions are different beliefs. They say Jesus was a Jew. Monotheism is the belief in only one God, Polytheism is the belief in many, if not millions, of Gods. Allah is what Hindus call their God as that is their beliefs. There is also religions like Atheism, where they completely deny the existence of such a God, Santanism which is I guess worshipping Satan, and then religions like I guess Scientology. The belief in God and Jesus Christ is a Christian tradition which have many different brands of practice in Western culture. There are the Moromons (Latter Day Saints), Adventists, Presbyterians, Jehovah’s Witness, Jews, Protestant, Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican Log in to Reply Once 1/9/2019 - 9:30 pm Yes. Culturally based “stories.” Man-made, and, in the case of christianity, branded as being divinely inspired, the actual “word-of-god.” The actual words, principles and teachings of the creator of the universe. *(sound of many crickets chirping)* We’ve quite the imagination here on our little floating rock.
