Came out of retirement (you might call it being "banned") just for this thread.
It got quite ridiculous how little sense people were making. People who think God exists somehow do not use logic? Okay, explain how the church got
all its money. Either they're some really clever people and they don't believe in God, or they're incredibly lucky idiots, at least that's what
I'm hearing from some posters.
Let's get one thing straight:
GOD IS REAL.
It's all a matter of figuring out WHO OR WHAT IS YOUR GOD. Some people worship money. This would be their God. Some people worship each other, so
mankind would be their God. There are as many different Gods as there are people. Personally, my "God" is everything that exists. Everything I see
IS my God. It wasn't just created by Him, but it actually is His physical manifestation. Prove me wrong. Please, try.
And for the love of Christ, how can a community whose main focus is to question everything including our interpretation of extra-terrestrial beings
not allow for one or more of these "plausible" extra-terrestrials to adopt a sort of kinship or father like aspect to what it would undoubtedly see
as a fledgling intelligent species? Would you not have some sort of pity for an child who had to grow up without parents? Would you not try to give
this child at least some encouragement or knowledge that you think would be vital to them?
I'm not saying Christian fundamentalists are right. And I'm not saying atheists are right either.
The only people who are even close are agnostics, but that's only because they have enough sense to admit what they don't know.
The entire concept of believing something you can't prove or disprove is foolish. I can't prove that Jesus was a real person that was really the son
of God who really died for my sins. Which is why Jesus isn't my God. But he does bear a striking resemblance to the personality I envisioned my God
would have if he chose to manifest His consciousness as a human being. So I call my God Jesus. I don't call Jesus my God.
Is my God better than yours? To me, yes. I found my God to be perfectly suited just for me. He's perfectly merciful, perfectly forgiving, yet still
allows perfect freedom, as I think my God should. But your God might think differently. Your God might be cold and uncaring, like the money in your
pocket that you think the whole world revolves around. As long as you recognize we all have Gods and we will all continue to have Gods for all of
time, we shouldn't have a problem. And perhaps, just maybe when we're all dead and gone, we'll have a chance to see who was right. Until then, stop
acting like you know anything.
