God The Term Contrived By Man. Religion A Fallacy.



This is where i have a slight problem with many of these theories and revelations.

Personally i believe its hogwash and fallacy. Humans are too fixated on the self centered notion of our existence.

We indulge and embellish the story of humanity and spiritual existence and ties with the universe and existence.

When it all comes down to us being here because of coincidence.

Quoted from Myself.

"Perhaps more of a generalised view on just events that happened from the Purported Start all the infinite amount of random fluctuations permutations computations and paramaters and physical gravitational interactions that led up until the creation of the solar-system and the manifestation of Earth. Its incredibly Fascinating all the events that lead up to Earth's and the Solar System(sols) Creation then life on Earth in so many forms and Variations and such advanced life Forms came to be"

and the notion that our humans feeble presence on this Earth has some kind of huge plan and or dictation of events based on and/or the entire Universe and/or Galaxy.

We are just a small grain of Dust in the Grand Scheme of things.

Nothing more Nothing Less.


Although i do take credence and like to leave an open mind on every subject i'm open to the possibilities of your theories on such topics at hand.

ElectroMagnetic Theories Of Consciousness

That was just my personal opinion on the matter.

Life is but anything we can imagine, because we cannot imagine the infinity. That is why I choose to celebrate the religion of 'Life'. It is to be enjoyed in peace, harmony, discipline, respect, simplicity and to do with whatever you want.

Lots take it for granted. We don't even need 'leaders' persay to guide us as they themselves are corrupt. Everyone just needs to realize the fact as to what life is, then money dissapears, the need to control dissapears, and teamwork and community involvement takes place to hurl us together into space. This greed and backdoor deals based upon religious wars, trying to get a step up from another, is what is holding us down.

Coincidence! When I look at biology, at the human body, all the "coincidences" around us . . .
I cannot imagine how some people do not believe in a God.

As i once said and will always continue to say


"Assume Everything, Accept nothing as factual"

This thread is just my personal view on the matters!

I have never understood why people who insist they don't think God exists spend so much time talking about Him. I don't believe in evolution and do not waste my time with it.

I never did say god didn't exist i'm open to the possibility of gods existence the term is contrived by man-kind though. This does not really offer much credence to gods existence.

Do you realise how long life has lived on this Earth until humans sprung up.

This has a real profound message about our sudden existence on the Earth.

You must have forgot about the past billions of years of Earths past.

Who really cares?

Nobody is going to change their views on religion just because another person has posted a "god is fake" thread. Those who believe that is going to praise the OP and flood him with stars. Those who don't believe that is going to quote scripture and say that they believe God is real.

There are thousands of such threads and now another atheist with an ego (those are rare
) has blessed us with another.

We get it already.

Your statement is an argument from ignorance, it is saying "I can't see any other way for this to come about so therefore GOD did it."

The issue is that the answer that a God did it actually has NO explanation power, it's not an answer at all. You are setting God into the gaps in your knowledge the same way a Greek explains lightning with Zeus.

It could also be construed as an argument from incredulity, which would go like this : "I can't believe this came about with a God, therefore there must be one." Your lack of imagination is not a good argument for God.

As for the OP I think we want to believe we're special on this planet but the sheer number of stars and other planets pretty much proves we're insignificant. That's fine by me, I'm more interested in finding local subjective meaning to my life than having some sort of cosmic destiny

I agree with your logic and if all I had was religion, the religious and the bible to go on, I would pretty much think it's BS.

Personally I do believe in a God, Creator, etc etc. Maybe it is because we all desire eternal life. I wonder why I do, since I don't really care much for this one. People really SUCK these days.

However, I do believe that this life is a challenge to progress, learn to love and hopefully move onward. What proof do I base it on?

None.

Books written a long time ago are not proof. A large group of people who all believe the same thing is not proof. People who use them as proof are a bit ridiculous to me.

Why not just tell it like it is? I believe in God, because I want to.

Seems to be true. I've always taken much credence to such statements though. I believe we really are insignificant to the sheer vastness of The Universe.

Shall we explore the Universe together as humanity. It will be wonderful

We shall embrace the Existence we are present in it is truly fascinating!

Then we will see that we are just one small piece of the puzzle.

Exactly just because more people believe in god doesn't add any more credence to its factuality.

I am open to the possibility of God existing and the opposite.

But in my personal opinion i believe god is just a contrived idea of man.

God created Man in his image - so Man returned the favor...

Soon you will find all those 'coincidences' somehow couldn't have all happend at the same time, in the same universe. Seems that people want to believe we are here for a mere moment and then vanish, but that would make us feel insignificant. Why would you want to feel no different than a bug on your doorstep that just happend by chance, just because your brain is bigger than theirs, we are top of the food chain, yet we just dissapear after a matter of roughly 100 years?

Just take time to meditate on the things just in your own area you live. Look at the trees how they branch outward, and lightning how it branches outward, and your veins how they branch outward, and the roots of plants how they branch outward....get the point. Too many coincidences that everything is connected by some factor, and they all have a specific purpose and design.

When you see this many coincidences, it becomes a pattern, and a pattern must mean there is a designer...

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”
