general reasoning and care.
no. in fact, i KNOW there isn't.
But i don't believe in God, because its an unessisary assumption, just because science has not discovered God doesn't mean to say that it
exists, or that he has demands of your life. Occams Razor - don't make retarded, irrational assumptions.
well, but what to you may seem as retarded, irrational assumptions are not necessarily that. it all depends on personal experience and yours and mine
and anyone else's are each unique.
belief in GOD is not necessary, you are right.
but on the other hand, at least for me, it is not an assumption.
Its a proposterus concept, out of date, and religiously insane are forcing its absolutist rules and regulations onto our developed social
democracy run countries, its despicable and it should not be taught to our children.
religion is poisonous in more ways that i care to think about right now, although i've given it lots of thought already.
but i also say that religion and GOD...and the possibilities of both there being GOD and there not being GOD, are two different things altogether.
in most people's minds, they are linked up and are assigned many of the same qualities and requisites. but this is not because it is a true
correlation - it is only a product of the human mind that is often allowed to rule over common sense.
common sense does not necessitate either a need to believe or disbelieve in deity. however, it does necessitate the need to keep things out of the
realm of personal desires and hopes if it is going to be examined dispassionately.
the only way to find the truth is by keeping emotions out of it - which means one cannot be ruled by their emotions. that is what dominates religion;
the tendency to let emotional urges and responses act in the stead of objective thinking.
we should teach our children to think for themselves rather than trying to tell them how or what to think because that is what we think. they have
such better ideas than we will, anyway, just by virtue of evolution.
