I like your post Friend. however, The Bible says in it's first few pages that we were "created in God's Image :] in fact, that's Genesis 2, or 3 I think.

My personal look is that you can boast about how science has enlighten you and opened your mind, but if you haven't contributed to it then shut your damn now. Don't try to leech off of other's people's success.

If I were an atheist, I'd probably go on a killing spree because if there is no punishment after death, then life basically has now meaning. You could talk about how important life is, but once you're dead, you're dead. Less people on the earth :D


First Paragraph:
So if I haven't cured a disease or made a groundbreaking discovery i'm not allowed to provide scientific explanations to phenomena that people hand wave as "acts of god"? What would be considered "contributing to science"? Curing cancer? Writing a paper in college? Unless i'm reading this wrong you're basically saying that unless you are a scientist you can't talk about specific scientific things such as evolution or the big bang.

Second Paragraph:
Comments like these are one of the things about religious people that scare the hell out of me. Are you telling me the only thing keeping you from killing people is fear of post death punishment by a non-corporeal life-form? How about not killing people because you're a rational human being with self control who values human life? Fucking terrifying man.


I also find it ironic that you are also saying you are obeying and doing the work of god because you fear him and not because you believe it is the right thing to do. So how would you run your life if you weren't constantly afraid of eternal hell fire?

As for me, I'm an atheist but I'm fine with other people believing what they want to as long as it doesn't affect other people.

Really? That's your reason? After life insurance? I'm... I'm so sorry for you.

All religions are mythologies. There are often times a few bits of truth buried within them and always something to be learned or an alternative view to something. However, it is ridiculous to believe these fairy tales to be absolute truths.

Not religious at all, and while I can understand a persons need for a higher power I feel that it gets in the way. Religion because a problem for me when I it gets in the way of human advancement. A good example of this was when the religious started protesting against stem cell research.

in my opinion this is not an appropriate subject to bring up on this kind of site. This also includes political, social, and economical. Perhaps we can just stick to ENTERTAINMENT. At least that is what I'm would expect from a site dedicated to East Asian entertainment and news. That is just my opinion though


I wholeheartedly disagree. Why would you want to keep everything saccharine? The big topics are the most fun. Besides, there's a section just for entertainment. If you don't like threads like these for whatever reason, then stay out of them. There's no reason for any serious discussion to be outlawed here on CR. Threads like these are one of the few things that keep this board bearable anyway. The plethora of gender war threads are horrible.

I have always wandered about God thats why i am majoring in philosophy and no i dont believe in god or in religion. Religion was created to control the masses.

God, jesus or whatever has many similarities with other deities that predate him. For example Horus the Egyptian god:

Conceived by a virgin mother named Meri, and had a stepfather named Seb (Joseph)
Was born in a cave, his birth announced by an angel, heralded by a star and attended by shepherds
Attended a special rite of passage at the age of twelve and there is no data on the child
from the age of 12 to 30
Was baptized in a river at the age of 30, and his baptizer was later beheaded
Had 12 disciples
Performed miracles, exorcised demons, raised someone from the dead, walked on water
Was called “Iusa”, the “ever-becoming son” and the “Holy Child”
Delivered a “Sermon on the Mount”, and his followers recounted his sayings
Was transfigured on the Mount
Was crucified between two thieves, buried for three days in a tomb, and was resurrected
Called “Way”, “the Truth the Light”, “Messiah”, “God’s Anointed Son”, “Son of Man”, “Good Shepherd”, “Lamb of God”, “Word made flesh”, “Word of Truth”, “the KRST” or “Anointed One”
Was “the Fisher” and was associated with the Fish, Lamb and Lion.
Came to fulfill the Law, and was supposed to reign one thousand year

Without religion a bunch of woman wouldn't have died during the witch trials, we be more advance in technlogy since the Catholic chirches burned all books of knowledge, many wars would have been avoided, sexual orientation and religion wouldnt be the #1 and #2 cause of hate crimes.

I never said it should be "outlawed," just toned down. You obviously haven't read my new posts. Also consider other people's responses. I won't repeat it, so If you're interested, go read through pages 32 and 33. I go into more depth with the help of others.

I am not, and why not? Why take the chance of receiving 72 ugly virgins, roasting in Hades, spending an eternity with boring Christians doing boring things, or being reincarnated as an insect?

Not religious (as in believing or following a faith or established religion) but definitely conflicted as to whether or not a 'higher' being/plane of existence exists. I gave too much thought to such subjects a while back, lol. Either way we'll never be able to find out the answer when we want.

I honestly don't know why people think no punishment after death = do as much harm to everything around you as possible... Unless you were joking, then you got me, lol
