I do not separate my faith and science. Honestly, I have yet to see a scientific observation disprove or in any way discredit the idea that there was a creator.
Evolution does not disprove God. It only opens up more questions about our origin. Why are apes still here if they came before us. Why do we coexist with what was supposed to be a precursor to man.
Not everyone is jihadist or "death to all sinners". Extremism has no place in Christianity.
Alot of atheists I meet seem indignant over Christians, or either see them as fools.
1 Corinthians 2:14
The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.
You have a spirit. I've seen a human being die, something is drawn up out of them when that happens. A soul.
All this energy, came from a source, the singularity, if the big bang theory is true, had to come from somewhere.
God is unseen, GOD is just a human word. The true identity of that under-lying force is unfathomable. Anyone who believes or is starting to believe, The finger of a higher power is extended out to you. Christ gave everyone a gift, his body and soul on the cross. some will choose to open the gift, some will choose to re-gift.
Take it easy everybody. Relax and tune back into the novelty of what surrounds us. Rediscover the beauty around you.

Frankly, it's all been rather a relief to come to this conclusion. The idea of going on and on forever in any particular version of paradise makes me shudder with intimations of infinite boredom.

Now i know a lot of people say when we die were dead, cease to be, become non-existent however wouldn't this be a belief?
So without reasonable evidence to show the non-existence of existence after death should atheists really say such?
Second part, does anything think this is a common belief among atheist because the 'afterlife' tends to be linked to religion?
