What are your Religious Beliefs?
Posted 10/2/06
actually, religion may bring people together...but incase you havent noticed, the irish still hate the english (to an extent) the kurds hate the shiites, the israelies hate the lebanese...all because of religion. its a driving force in contruction and economy, but its also a destroying force. and its a much stronger destroying force.

are people further apart? perhaps. but religion is still around in a big way, and people have been growing further and further apart since the invention of technology.

humans dont NEED something above to believe in. i dont have something, neither do millions of people, and look at all that has been done even without religion in peoples lives.

Many of those millions are miserable and unhappy with their lives or are big partygoers and even if they werent I bet if compared to a believer in something they are not nearly as happy.

True but if their had been no religion there would prob be none of these places but even if we ignore that they would still hate each other because of some reason that would have come up and are you trying to argue that without religion the World would be much happier and many conflicts would never have arosen then look at all the conflicts fought over land and money or other self absorbed things. And before people had technology and only religion which I believe to be recently after they left Eden they were very close. It also depends on what religion can be a huge factor in whether it is a destroying force and also whether the leader of it currently or in the past has changed it or added to it. Also are not the Kurds fighting for land that no one will give them not over religion and is it not the sunni and shiite who are fighting for religous reasons. The Isrealites have always been untrusting of most who come near them and in the past because of this they destroyed as many people as they could in the land they lived in.

Personally I am hardly interested in what Haddon thinks because he is much to close minded to be as he claims adept in the knowledge of so many religions

And yet I care. I barely touch my computer so I know little about it but on the rest of the world I could take you easy. But I dont care. My point is you dont answer your questions and you turn down an arguement over one part of a belief.

Not to start anything else here, but Haddon could you tell me some of those things about the bible that arn't true? I 'm not trying to prove anything I just wanted to know what you think is wrong with it, in excruciating detail.

I'm a born-again Christian, through and through. I have been all my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I honestly cannot imagine how people can actually deny the existance of God, or some form of supernatural being. Look around you. Go to a park on an autumn evening when the sun's setting. Go hiking in the woods, and look at the pure beauty of nature. Such masterpieces like these exists...and you believe it to be by chance?

Or we could look at something slightly more complex. Like love, for example. Or emotional pain. Likes, dislikes, boredome. How were these things determined if they were not created by someone and put into place?

My brother shared with me an interesting comparison. Let's say there's a completely disassembled computer, every screw and part taken out, and the pieces are randomly placed around a room. Now, what is the chance that the computer is going to put itself together? Yet people are so quick to believe that the earth, something FAR more complex than a computer, was created by chance?

I'm not here to force my belief on anyone, nor am I here to criticize the beliefs of others. Let's face it, there is no true way to prove that God exists. Likewise, however, there is no true way to prove that He doesn't. It's all a matter of faith. I've seen too many miraculous things happen to both myself and those I care about to even begin to question the existance of Him.

Oh, and one more thing. I, too, am interested in reading about these false statements in the Bible, Haddon. (Oh, and how does having one of Adam's ribs make Eve his daughter? Does someone getting a kidney from another person make them related?)

you know the bigger argument Haddon could have made Adam and Eve are the only 2 people on earth after they get kicked out of the garden... and they have kids... allright... but those kids would have to have kids in order to make more people... so basically... The bible promotes incest.
