Well, I think it's completely irrelevant if 'God' exists.
It is totally unprovable either way until we die and / or some sort of settling of accounts on 'Judgement Day' or the subsequent lack of one!
I enjoy reading about and sometime discussing religous matters, but that doesn't qualify me as being either Theist or Atheist.
Both are opposite sides of the same coin and convince themselves that they have 100% faith...but do they?
I don't think anyone can have.
Everyone, regardless of faith, or lack of it, which is a belief system in itself, must have some slight seed of doubt even if it is locked away in
some deepest recess of the mind.
No-one can ever, without doubt, unquestionably confirm or deny it.
But why worry about it?
I live my life by a set of values and morals I have set myself.
I try never to intentionally hurt or harm anyone unless provoked or in self-defence etc.
My values follow no particular religion or belief system, just simply something I believe in personally.
If there isn't a 'God', well, so what, at least I've been true to myself and tried to live by what I personally have thought was right.
If there is a 'God' and he is omniescent and omnipotent and has a Welcoming Party to his his Private Members Only After Life Club then I am certain
that he will not be so arrogant and egotistical as to demand adherence to a strict set of rules and regulations rather than judge people on the very
acts and deeds of their life.
If he he is so arogant and egotistical, well, deal me out, I don't want to go to his party, it'd be crap and boring anyway!
One thing is certain none of us will ever be certain so instead of getting hung up on crap like do we wipe our arse with the correct hand or have we
been to confession or was Mary really a virgin why don't we just get on with life and try our best to minimalise the amount of unecessary hurt we
cause through our own individual actions.
Organised religion is the bane of mankind!
