jackripped;5322231You don't know but suspect supernatural events would cover it mate. Along with Uwsar-Hat-Anupuw's post, it is pretty clear.

Umm, Nemmerle was just making a joke, he meant he added a poll option.

I believe in God and I believe there was a great man named Jesus Christ. Those things simply make sense to me. Perhaps he was sent by God, perhaps he wasn't. Perhaps God simply created the universe and doesn't interfere on our level. I don't claim to know.

Regardless of what ones more specific beliefs are, I believe everyone should live with the thought that their actions in this life effect their next. If insist on doing only what is logical like some sort of machine, agnosticism is the only way to go, but even then you shouldn't live a shallow life.

And yes I would like to see everybody share the same religious beliefs. In my opinion humanity will only be able to advance beyond our planet with somewhat unified political and religious beliefs. And yes I would have them be my beliefs, anybody who claims they wouldn't want their beliefs to be standard is downright lying.

l would argue you do not need religion at all to be a moral human being. Your logic is slightly flawed, in the sence you rely on religious beliefs for morals.

l also believe a man called Jesus walked the earth , l don't believe he was sent by a god.No evidence of it.

As for the leaving Earth with religious and political unified beliefs is, in my opinion plain wrong, we will go out there with many religions , like our society is now, but more than that, its going to be open minded people, scientists, that are the bulk of our 'people in space' , and l believe it will be resources that drive us out there, not political or religious reasons.

Everyone is not like you. Certainly I want a peer-group of people who, broadly speaking, can sympathise with me - but frankly I prefer that people in general have fairly diverse beliefs. Two reasons: It makes them easier to manipulate, and life would be pretty boring if everyone was the same.

Ultimately I'm just along for the ride, I really don't give a damn about the world. Diversity gives me more to experience. More people, more cultures, more values. In some cases more conflict but that's both the greatest spice of life and, in a way, the price you pay for having fun.

no but I personally think it helps... a lot.

how is that a problem? isn't religon pretty much built on telling people right from wrong?

because north korea will really like us sending people into outer space to take all the resources first.

[COLOR=Lime]That might be your perception of what religion does and is or is, but it is not mine, and l don't believe religion is built on telling people right from wrong, it contradicts itself to often....[/COLOR]

[COLOR=Red]North Korea can bite us.And then they can cry all they like and do nothing about it, if they even care..... Its not about North Korea, or the US or the UK or Russia or Japan or Australia or any one country, its about the whole human race, and it is a group of countries building the space station , so there's a good example.[/COLOR]

well doesn't the bible pretty much say "don't do this or you'll burn in hell"? that sounds like telling people right from wrong to me. or at least telling people whats wrong.

also I don't think all those countries will work togethor to build a space station. because if it was that easy to unite humanity for that little cause then why do we still have wars?

This is my belief on the beginning of time.

God created the heaven and the earth as in the Bible but not in 7 24 hour periods. IIRC, a Hebrew day actually represents 1,000 years. This still puts the universe creation time at 7,000 years. My personal belief is that the 'days' were variable stages in creation. It fits better with what scientific evidence shows w/o contradicting what the word of God says.

And about evolution, I believe that God allows it on the small scale (adaptation for instance).

EDIT: And looking at the poll, the Catholic and Christian bible don't differ because they're Catholicism is a denomination of Christianity. To my knowledge, they only use a Bible that is translated in Latin, which is not a special or different version of the Bible. Changing the Bible is actually a no-no in the Christian belief (though I'm sure it has and does happen). No other denomination has their own version of the Bible, just sometimes their own interpretation.
