we believe that a god exist because our science has already proven it's impossible for nature to start ANYTHING without something um I (me, STT, not the others) believe that the earth won't survive another World War also I believe that sunflower seeds (NOT SALTED) is very very delicious!!


and logic has proven that god cannot exist without something. that is an entirely circular logic, and is pointless to use is a debate against the creation without a god.

i believe humanity is fucked, unless we change. i don't think we will kill ourselves off just yet...not for awhile, if ever, but i do believe we are developing more and more of a caste system, which unless fixed, will divide us (think time machine, but not as extreme)

I don't believe in God, the Bible, Heaven or Hell. It's all to contradictory. I do believe in the facts that Science has given us about the world and creation over the many years. I also believe in Reincarnation and Karma and feel that they make sense as well.

Mostly I feel that the human race will be the cause of it's own fall. For if you put too much faith into something other than yourself and hope that someone else will give you the answers you need then most probably you will be waiting for those answers for the rest of your life and you'll never get anything accomplished.

That's it.

My beliefs would span pages. any of you that has been in the IRC, and especially on Skype with me, knows this. i give lectures/rants for hours on end, with minimal breaks. i have debated myself to exhaustion. no, not debated with another person, debated my own views with conflictions others would see. however, suffice it to say i believe in humanity...i believe it is possible to be fixed. not to perfection, but to betterment. everyone i know thinks i am a pessimistic asshole..but really, i'm just a very doubtful optimist. i want it to happen...it is possible. but the chances of us getting "better" are so slim...

You need to be more specific. what do you mean by better? because there are many aspects that have certainly improved.

I believe that there is good in everyone, you just have to look closely to see it sometimes.

i belief in miracles
Posted 1/19/07
more intelligent...not more knowledgeable, we are far more knowledgeable than we ever have been...but more intelligent? we still kill over little pieces of colored paper, which somehow makes us powerful. we endlessly fight about make-believe invisible men in the sky. we are still hungry, we are still diseased, we are still handicapped. we cannot control our environment even now as much as it can control us (sure, we can make air conditioning, but can we make it rain during a drought? can we bring in some clouds when a heatwave fries our crops? can we warm up a city 10 degrees to keep people from freezing to death? nah). that is what i mean better.

First, intelligence is a tricky construct. And its been shown that iq scores rise over time. I don't have the study/article on hand, but I remember that it was something like +3avg every 10y or something. Controlling weather is certainly within our horizon, as far as I know.

"i belief in miracles" Care to share a personal experience?

I believe in God but not destiny or fate, more like predestination meaning that God knows all including the future but that power does not intervene with my free will. I am also a man of science and strongly disprove of the theory of evolution.

I believe that if there is a higher being that he/she/it is either extremely sadistic, not all-powerful, or just plain doesn't care. If god was all loving and omnipotent, he wouldn't create all the creatures of the world to live in perpetual suffering from war, famine, etc. If we are supposed to strive to learn to overcome these difficulties, then why were we not just given this knowlege to begin with?

I believe that scientific theories (such as evolution) can co-exist with belief in god.
