That logic doesn't make any sense. This absurd notion that people who aren't religious have "no morals" is false, and it's only because many religious people have this impression that other people should live by, and be judged by, their moral standards....which many of them have a great deal of trouble following themselves!

We just happen to live by a different set of morals from religious people. For example, I am atheist, and I am able to commit as much premeditated murder and rape as I want to...and I have no trouble whatsoever in doing this, because the number of times I want to commit those acts in my life is exactly zero. That's not going to change at any point in my life, simply because I don't follow any religion.

Are you sure you know your asking the question your asking? For the record, I agree that Religion is questionable. or at least the belief in it is. Not believing in religion does not make you an Atheist. If you think it does, that you still don't have enough knowledge to understand what it is you think you don't understand. A Religion is a way of life, nothing more, nothing less. Being an Atheist is a disbelief in a Deity or a higher power. Religion has little to do with a belief in God. Religion is the Method in which you choose to believe.

As for your skepticism. I'm pretty sure my God thinks your beneath his/her notice also. so we are not offended. We do however offer you pity. in that instead of waiting until your mature enough, knowledgeable enough, traveled enough to see for yourself and to understand exactly what "GOD" is, you choose to deny the existence. I can go on, but why? you've made up your mind, you have all the answers.

This is a forum that supports roleplay, something that religious people do all the time.

No i don't believe in god, but i do believe in the belief of god.
I feel like our purpose in life is just to help others, from the elderly to teaching little kids. We are all put on this Earth to help each other and to learn from each other. :3 but that's just my view

I think its what I was born to do! and fun fact for you all! Jesus isn't his real name! and the halo behind his head is actually the roman sun god HAHA scary how things get twisted huh ? Life would be boring without believing in something- my opinion ^-^

I have no problem with individual faith. Many goodhearted and otherwise intelligent people believe in some kind of god/afterlife/etc. I myself operate as if certain things that I have no way of proving are true.

I dislike it when people's faith is distorted by the malicious and the power-hungry as a tool of oppression.

Which means I have little use for the vast majority of organized religions.

Religion is for some but not for all. It's definetly not for me , but I do have my moments where I pray hoping something in my life may change. Just wishful thinking probably.

I am technically a theist, but my line of beliefs align more so with that of an atheist than anything.

I believe god is whatever created the universe, and is only that. It does not extend beyond the act of creation and plays no role with humans. Thus I have no reason to be a part of any religion and god plays no role in my life. I believe in evolution and such as well.


EDIT: I am somewhat conflicted with the idea of religion though. When it's not filled with intolerance, hate, and ignorance, and actually serves a meaningful purpose I believe it does people quite a bit of good. But the amount of intolerance that is amongst it is difficult to ignore.

That said, I don't think I'd ever wish to abolish it. Without religion, music would hardly exist today, and that would pain me very much.


You should go back a couple pages and find my post. It was specifically for people who think this, more or less. You're smart enough to know that a 'God' is not needed for how humans interact in daily life because everything has been set in motion already - there is no reason to even believe there is a 'God' around us if you understand the basic theories of math and science in the 21st century. The question would then become do we need 'God' to help explain how physics and the universe began? In short from the videos I linked earlier is that: No, at this point in technological advancement, study of astro physics, and study of the universe's beginning we no longer have a need to use 'God' to fill the gap of the beginning of everything. Why? Because we already know how literally something can emerge from the absence of everything.

To the dude talking about philosophy and the question posed about what if everyone was a liar as a basis to refute religious teachings.... That's a pretty weak argument. It'd be like trying to refute someone arguing against multiple worlds theory and all of the pointless intricacies they put into it. Instead, ask more valuable questions and answer those.

Also, to the 53 man quoting the Bible..... Here is a fantastic tip:

If you want to PROVE something don't use the UNRELIABLE evidence of something written by that which you are trying to PROVE. It literally makes no logical argumentative sense. It's what we call a circular argument
