Hey to everybody reading this hope you day is fine and that you are happy in life. I am beautyofperil, I feel the username means things such as sporting events match ups and the perils that the athletes face and how beautiful the entertainment is, that life as we know it has come to what it is through all of it perils and of course nature in all its violent glory.
To speculate on the last meaning given what I mean is that everywhere you look violence is in nature from the beautiful burning violence of our sun and other cosmic anomalies to the most simple form of violence like rain hitting the ground.
I joined because I am trying to quit smoking and wish to occupy my mind with writing instead of indulging in my habit. I find it helps.

So what are some of the conspiracy theories that interest you?

Definitely Aliens, Ancient cultures and World War 3. I'm more of a hippie than a barbarian though.

Plenty of that here for you! Be sure to click those links in Slayer69's signature!

My favorite topic matters are philosophy, religions, and social justice. I am interested in most conspiracy theories but currently mostly medical related! Crop circles peaked my interest again recently too.

Me too


And welcome to ATS.

I see well that is cool and I appreciate you sharing that. If your curious about my stance on religion, I actually want help in that aspect. I'm on the fence and would like to believe in god but the only godly thing to me is consciousness and that's something I feel has been and always will be. There was never a creation and only change. I'm sure I could of worded that differently but that's the easiest way to sum up my beliefs in something of that nature, but I don't fully understand religion myself. I've never been to church or prayed and I feel sorry for kids who are thrust into it, they deserve a choice. Religion does not deserve to be blamed for wars though, its always the people. We were predators/barbarians long before Religion was around and we will be predators/barbarians long after its gone. Violence is where ever you look.

So in the help aspect I'm a _______? Atheist? Neutral entity? Idiot?

I am myself anti-religious. I enjoy reading them and studying them. Partly so I have knowledge to debate and partly just because it's really fascinating.

I consider myself a Deist. Which is more of a position about God and "its" relationship with the physical universe. Doesn't really address the nature of God "itself". Perhaps you fit inline with deism?

Deism

Imagining the nature of God itself is profoundly difficult when you forsake religion. As you no longer have definitive descriptions. But I think that's a good thing! Any ways I agree with you about consciousness. To me consciousness seems not only important but fundamentally the answer to the question. Maybe we are all fictional characters in God's imagination

Well I was not aware of Deism until now, thank you, I don't think that is quite it. As I believe I'm a living miracle and that miracles explain everything that religion can or does. It's no miracle to me however, when we dead, we dead. Back to the earth in which came. Recycled goods, junk parts, no longer part of consciousness and never to be heard from again. I'm just gonna go with not religious.

To me religion means dogma, and has little to do with God. For instance I am non-religious and Deist. Hmm maybe something more like this? Pantheism


Pantheism is the view that the natural universe is divine, the proper object of reverence; or the view that the natural universe is pervaded with divinity. Negatively, it is the idea that we do not need to look beyond the universe for the proper object of ultimate respect.



When we say that the cosmos is divine, we mean it with just as much conviction and emotion as believers say that their god is God. But we are not making a metaphysical statement that is beyond proof or disproof. We are making an ethical statement that means no more, and no less, than this: We should relate to the universe in the same way as believers in God relate to God. That is, with humility, awe, reverence, celebration and the search for deeper understanding.
