i love the god debate....so basic...so fundamental right?
question: at the end of the day....isnt it really about what we WANT to believe about the world? I mean....aren't there just literally dozens of
things in our lives that we choose to believe something about even if those beliefs are rather baseless and unrealistic? we eat food we 'know' isnt
good for us...even though common sense and 'evidence' should suggest rather strongly otherwise. We hang out with ppl that we know arent' good
influences on us or have our best interest in mind. We spend money on things that are wasteful for no other reason than it looks good or will give
us something to distract ourselves with.
I mean really...human beings are a farking mess. We are the most mixed up confused misdirected and completely absurd species of animal/mammal on the
planet. I never saw any other animal in the world totally ruining the very things that makes its existence possible and then try to say its ok
because earth doesnt need us anyway and in a few billion more years it wont matter because some other animal will evolve and take our place.
I mean really, the absurdity of things we believe, think, speak and do is beyond comprehension. It doesnt even matter if theres a god or not...because
either way we have totally proven ourselves to be our own worst enemies.
I personally think that people find reasons to believe what they want to believe. How often have you met a person who you KNEW was in a totally
destructive relationship but had over time convinced themselves that the reason why the person was abusing them was because they didnt cook dinner
good enough or some other trifling thing? They find REASONS to excuse the absurdity of staying in a totally destructive and nonsensical
There are some honest ppl out there that will smoke and say its because they like it....not spout some retarded excuse like 'well my parents smoked,
my friends smoked....and i guess it was just fate that now i smoke. I wanna quit...but i just cant seem to do it!"
ever heard of a thing called the 'will' ? Anyone wanna volunteer an example of the last time they used it to do something that went against what
they 'wanted' or were attracted to? You see...that to me is the crux of every issue. Do we do the things we do because we overtly make them
happen....as masters of our fate.....or do we float down stream with all the other dead fish? Philosophically speaking, do we truly investigate to
the limits of our understanding the reasons why we are here and what it all means? Or do we find some pop culture bullshyt textbook explanation, from
the classroom or the church pulpit that somehow relieves us of the duty to fully seek out the answers that for most of us drive us in this life to
live the ways we do.
I guess it comes down to alot of how ppl live in the rest of their lives. I can almost guarantee you that you wont find an unemployed, living with the
parents, xbox playing, twinkie eating, bump on a log giving at all a shyt of why they are here and what life is all about. This is deep water....and
only those who are ready to sink or swim dare test those depths.....the rest of us are content to dip our toes in and feel the frigidity of the
subject and go back to our comfortable, dull, and status quo lives.
