Is there a GOD?

IF yes who is HE/She?
Catholic, Muslim, Jewish, Budda, Little Bit of all

If No What do you believe?

Are we just going to go poof?

We have souls but we are mana that goes back to mother earth?

What? I'm just trying to get a general feel for everybody else.

Yes, I believe in God. My spiritual views are probably not mainstream. I tend to deter from orthodox Christianity and I can't say that my beliefs necessarily fit in real well with any organized form of religion.

Umm, what specifically would you like to know? I mean, what is the laundry list of questions would you like each of us to answer?

God is neither he, she, buddha, christian, muslim, catholic, jewish, and so on. Religions are collaborated thoughts put together by beliefs of peoples different perspectives on a supreme entity. Religions are merely a group of people who help cope others in their own culture to it. Sounds like annihilation. I am not religious. I believe I have moved further of understanding then the church. I do not want to be programmed by an unreliable fathom of followers.

Simply put. God is Love.

I think you're going to have to define the concept of God before I can honestly answer it.

I am a Unitarian Universalist (we think that everyone is entitled to worship anything they please, from Jesus to Lao Tsu to the Flying Spaghetti Monster) here is a Unitarian Universalist joke for you.

"What does a Unitarian Universalist believe?"

"I don't know, I never heard of them. Maybe we can figure it out from the name."

"Okay. Well 'Unitarian' has a root word meaning 'one' right?...and Universal encompasses everything."

"I see, so we can assume that they believe in one of everything!"

HA!

(Hey, I didn't claim it was a good joke.)

It. I see GOD as an it - a collection of forces that influence us rather than a "personage." GOD: the Guiding, Organizing, Designing process.

Nothing just goes poof. Neither matter nor energy can be created or destroyed - only transformed.

I state these things as if they are fact, yet they are only my opinion. It was just too cumbersome to preface each sentence with "I believe..." or "In my opinion..."

well, i could
but i won't
it would take this thread off topic
and i do not want that to happen
though you never called me arrogant as an individual, you have called atheists arrogant

I doubt it.



If No What do you believe?


That we are conceived, live, play, laugh, cry, love, work, and die.


Are we just going to go poof?


We just die. The light goes out, we leave those we love; thus, we should make the very best of what we have in the here and now.


We have souls but we are mana that goes back to mother earth?


No idea. I see no reason to believe the mind is anything more than a brain process in action.

to madness and sun:
oh who cares

if you didn't abuse us how would we know you loved us?

madness - sun answered the OP directly and elegantly

he believes absolutely without question or single solitary doubt
that YES virginia there IS a GOD

so if you don't believe, madness
and it turns out (and you just NEVER know, even you must admit that, right?)
that there IS a God

Sun has gotcha covered!
No problems for atheists
only hypocrites
and that you are never

you are a good kid
madness
and not too many adults are even good kids these days!

God is love.

God cannot be fully understood by us while on this plain of existance.

God is the all and the nothing.

God guides me on my path.

I am God. We are all God.

We live so God lives.


Annie your Avatar is lovely.

God being just love makes absolutely no logical sense.

If God is the creator and the first cause of everything, God cannot possibly be just love. He has to be the source for both good and evil, unless you suggest that something can come from nothing, in which case the God concept is utterly redundant in the first place.

peace Vlad

God does not make logical sense (to us) but logic is a hierarchal thing - no logic is higher than God's if we follow that standard; therefore until we are God we will not be able to totally make sense of God's nature.

That is what is known in philosophy as a 'closed system.' As of now.


So it is best not to try to make any kind of sense from any part of God we've known or heard of.

Such as the fact that God is a lifetime member of Hell's Angels!
(and who is NOT lifetime in the Angels or the Mob?)

God is not JUST love.
But life is easier when we K.I.S.S. and so to say God is love is easy to remember and impossible to explain. That seems to be more important than logic to babies.

love bless you!
