This is a reply to the following topics:
What will it take for you to believe!? (God)
What will it take for you to stop believing!? (Deity)
I do not understand why people on both sides feel the need to continue this never ending struggle for social acceptance by denouncing one side and
placing the other on the proverbial pedestal.
One side claims to know of the existence of a higher being while the other is content on smothering their belief. Now normally I would avoid the
endless argument about the existence of a higher being, a creator of creation, the know all see all, but I feel obligated to ask a simple question to
Why do you feel as though you need to argue over this topic? If you choose to believe in a god, then that is your prerogative. And if you choose to
resist the belief of a higher being, that is your right as well. But do not get tangled up into the stew of madness that is the topic of whether is a
god or not.
To be honest, it really doesn't matter what YOU think on the topic. There is nothing YOU can do about it if there is a god or not, so why argue? It
only adds on stress and takes away a few minutes of your already short life, and for what? To try to convince someone that doesn't want to be
MY belief is simple, there is no higher being. That is what I choose to believe, and I respect what other people choose to believe. That is why you
haven't seen me post in the other religious topics. I believe that the god people believe is there is actually inside every single living creature.
That "god" has many names as well. And do you know what you call that god?
Energy. Chakra. Mana.
The Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy cannot be created nor destroyed. That is a LAW, which means it was a theory and was proven. Now,
with that in mind, where does the energy come from and where does it go?
I cannot answer that. What I can say is that I am not an Atheist, and I am not a Theist either. I am an Agnostic.
I choose to believe that there is a "god" out there, but it is not a being. It is within all of us, humans, animals, plants, and bacteria. It is
matter. It is all around us. It has always been there since the beginning and it will be there until the end.
I know this wont solve anything, but I hope it made at least one person see the light of the matter, and that is that it is pointless to argue. Just
embrace your idea and keep it to yourself. Do not push it on others. They have the right to believe what they want to believe as do you. Do not
violate their right.
Thank you for reading.
