I like the idea of heaven and god and stuff, but I'd like to see some evidence before believing something besides just believing something because a book (the bible) said so...

and there's also the thing with "circular logic", it is used and prefered over thinking when it comes to god... example "the bible is true because it is the word of god and it is the word of god because the bibke says so" and "the religion is right because so many people believe in it and so many people believe in it because it is right"

the fact that most religions go out of thier way to dicourage rational scientific thinking is one of the biggest things in this respect. also there's the whole thing where most religious things are invisible things you can't see unless you believe in them, which when you do see it it will either be A. the thing didn't want to prove itself unless you already believe in it making the proof useless or B. your "faith" has caused your subconsious to convince you that you saw whatever you wanted to see because you wanted to see it that bad (otherwise known as hollucinating).

by all means I would rather go to heaven or even hell than just stop existing or whatever it would be if religion was wrong.but I'm not one to just believe something without good reason.

I've never believe in God nor will believe in Him now. I read the stories of the Bible before though and most of the stories seem far-fetched to me.

If you look at history, you will see that the stories of the Bible are truly accurate.

But the ones that aren't (like the entire human population starting with 2 people) are what makes some people doubt it. Sure, it may accurately explain some historical events, but that's because it was written by humans who either lived during that time or knew a lot about that time period. In that sense it's no different from all of the other historical documents that have been kept throughout history.

Doubting god is a hard thing.
I did, but got over it since I pray and ask God about some things, for the usual.
True that it's not enough proof that he exists, but who cares. He's there, let him be.

I find the concept of a god as imagined by most major religions logically impossible.

I agree with my old pal, Epicurus, when he said this:

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?"


Know that there are a lot of other reasons to doubt the existence of a god. Check out this essay by Bertrand Russel - Why I Am Not A Christian - where he refuted most arguments made by Christians to prove the existence of a god.

Personally, another reason why I doubt the existence of a god is that it is just so ridiculous. Think about it - talking snakes, talking donkeys, magic knowledge trees, people turning into salt, people whose strength is proportional to their hair length, someone who can make you live forever if you telepathically tell him you accept him as your master and lots of other ridiculous stuff.

If we read other literature besides from the bible and see things like this, we laugh at those stuff and dismiss them as myths (think about Greek Mythology and Norse Mythology).

Note that Christians and Atheists are alike in that they agree that most gods do not exist. Atheists just believe in one less god than Christians.

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.

I see the Bible as a social commentary.


But you no doubt think some parts are literally true. I think the major question is how would you determine what is literal and what is not?

-he isn't visible
-he isn't feelable
-he isn't there at all?!
-its a male
-he's not nice, if I may believe the bible.
-humans made him by believing
-if he exists than he's pretty lazy, cause I never saw him helping out when ppl were in trouble.(shit happens, god won't be there, only in your mind, if you believe)
-he doubts me.
-he is scary(if I may believe the bible)
-he is not human.

Have you ever truly asked Him to help you though? How can you ask God to help you, yet reject His Message and Holiness? God is love, not just a gift giver in the sky.

There is no core evidence of an existence of a god. The bible is not considered evidence, and it could just be written by people on acid.

I really don't think any single being could possibly be the beginning of everything. Everything around us is that way. To make one thing we need two of another.

There are plenty of organisms that reproduce asexually...

Maybe God is a snail? (If only I had photoshop...)
