I find it amazing that some many on here believe in big foot, aliens, demons and ghosts but if someone who's a christian is a moron in many of
That is a some what legitimate point. I tend to believe in aliens but I will mock Christians every now and then.
There's an important difference here though... Christianity specifies a certain God with certain rules and all sorts of other mumbo jumbo. And there
are like dozens of different religions with all these different rules, and a lot of them are constantly at each others throats arguing who is
I have absolutely no problem with a person who might believe that "some sort of God" does exist. I'm agnostic myself, meaning I can accept the
possibility there might be a God, and that we as Humans don't have a definitive answer concerning whether a God does or doesn't exist.
We simply don't know with absolute certainty... Christians who say God definitely exists are just as bad as Atheists who say God definitely doesn't
exist. So the point is this... it's fine to believe that a God exists, or that aliens exists... but when you start getting specific, without any
evidence, there's a problem.
There is simply no logical validity to believing every word of the bible or any other religious text, when the claims being made in those texts lack
evidence. Just like the most popular book on aliens... anyone who believes every word of such a book, as if it were some sort of holy gospel on
aliens, is an idiot.
So... in conclusion, I believe in aliens but I don't have any religious framework for those beliefs. I think "yeah aliens probably exist, but I
don't really know who they are, why they are here, or what they want from us". I've just reached certain conclusions based on the evidence I've
seen and my own personal experiences.
So if you've had your own personal experiences that lead you to believe that a God may exist, that's absolutely fine. But tell me where the logic is
when you instantly jump to the nearest religious text and start expanding your beliefs to encompass the teachings of such ridiculous religious
What makes you truly think those religious texts have anything to do with the nature of the God you have come to believe in? I can tell you now that
the connection to those texts is nothing more than environmental circumstances; the society you are raised in and the most popular text in that
society is the one you're likely to adopt.
