just post your views on life. you know, life, the universe, god, religion, supernatural, stuff like that. ill put some down later.
First of all, I intent to offend some people with this post... well, not really, but it might.
God(s) doesn't exsist, nor did he ever in any shape or form. I think that, people believe in religions as a little girl holds on to her doll. Eventually the girl lets go of her doll, but people don't let go of religion. I can't say these people are bad. My own grandparents who are the coolest old people I know (:p) are Christians and are in great health at over 70. I guess religion can be a part of some people, as long as they don't kill themselves over it.
What really pisses me off are these Christians who say this and that is bad. Oh, you should ban Harry Potter from school, because it teaches witchcraft. FFS. There are more examples which I'll post later. Now, don't get mad at me for singling out Christians, it's not my fault that I was brought of in a predominantly Christian country.
Islamic extremists also piss me off. Is it me, or are most of these terrorists blowing themselves up islamic? I have a bunch of Muslim friends who are non-violent. What makes these radicals believe that their religion teaches to kill others? Honestly, I think either these Islamic leaders are very clever, or there is something in the Koran. I hope it's not the religion.
You see, religion pissed me off more than anything else. People, let go of your religion. How many wars have been fought over religion!? Get a clue.
Again, sorry if I offended anyone.
I don't believe in the supernatural really. I am affraid of the dark sometimes, but that is only because I think there's a killer in my closet. I am paranoid. However, I somewhat believe in ghosts. They seem real enough, but if I believed in them and not religion, then I would probably be a hypocrite. So I try not to get tangled up in the supernatural.
People are F***ing stupid. I tell you.
Last year in school I met a guy who got a girl pregnant. They both loved eachother until the girl found out she was pregnant. After she found out, she went to her boyfriend and kicked him the balls multiple times. She blamed the guy for her pregnancy. WOMAN! IT TAKES TWO PEOPLE TO GET YOU PREGNANT. You should have thought more about having sex before you had it.
And then, I don't know what religion it was, or in what country, but I hear about this all the time. Some guy got this women pregnant and so the woman is being sentenced to death as soo as the baby is born. The guy is getting off scott-free. WTF!? Like I said before, it takes two to make a baby.
Man, I hate people.
that makes two of us. and beleiving in the super natural and not religion dontmake you a hippocrit. cuz you can believe what i do, wich is sortof the sientific version, that everybody has a energy in them that we call a soul, and when we die, it leaves our body, and some times disperses to leave our relm and go to a new one but a lot of times, stays here in our material relm and we call them gosts. and you certainly didnt offend me with the religion. and one thing that pisses me off about it is that we are having all these wars for god, allah, whatever. BUT THEYRE ALL THE SAME GOD! its pointless.

Well, both god and ghosts are invisible. So if you don't believe in god because you can't see him, but you believe in ghosts that you can't see, then you are a hypocrite. Get what I am saying? I used to believe in something you are talking about with this scientific energy thing, but I have just accepted that I am just going to die and that's the end of it. It may be scary for some people to think like that, but it won't be all that bad really. Cuz, when you are dead you ca't think about all you miss.
And I don't even know why I said "I hope you weren't offended...", because people should have enough self-discipline not to get mad at what I am saying.
And I guess I may be ignorant, but it takes ignorance to get through to what I believe is the real world.
yah well, i guess your right about the after life thing. people are just afraid to be gone forever so they want to believe that there will be something to go to. and i seriusly think that religion started with a bunch of people who didnt want to be held responsible for what they did. some of the phychos out there will tell the cops that god told them to kill who ever. or that god has decided that they will be a bum and drain society. and see. believing in ghosts and not god dosnt make me hippocriticle. cuz they are two different things. and just because someone dosnt believe in god dosnt mean they dont believe in some higher intelligence. cuz i believe that there is more thatn one giant intelliegence running the universe or universes. and they are doing a really sucky job or something. but we are held responsible for our own actions. they just create things, end things, mess with us. and my new rule for this thread. no saying "i hope i dont offend anybody". i like the way you think.
I believe there is definitely a god, and I believe that most of the major religions worship the same god, just in different ways. I'm not sure about heaven, but if God does exist it would make sense that we would go back to where we came from when we die. Though I was born a catholic, I think I’m more of a deist than anything; I'm not particularly religious or anything like that.
I’m also an individualist, people should have the freedom to do what they want so long as they aren’t harming anyone (like theft, murder, stuff like that). Being forced to do something you don’t want to should be kept to an absolute minimum.
I seriously cannot believe in religions for the fact that humans wrote the holy scriptures and humans are biased. A little bias can go a long way. I have three Bibles in my house and read them from time to time to increase my knowledge of Christianity. I think much of what is said in there is good and people should follow. For instance: you should not kill or steal. Christianity would be better if it was more like a philosophy (kinda like confucism.) That way you can have wars over whether it is right to kill or not. Then atleast the war is justified. :rolleyes:
You know, I actually read books about buddhism and I think it's great. Many people have turned it into a religion, but originally it was all about overcoming materialism and ignorance. Basically, letting loose of attachment. Don't cry when you toys are stolen, because you are still alive and you didn't need the toys to begin with.
i think buddhism is the smartest religion. if all of them were phliosiphies, then the world would be a better place. i still dont like the idea of worshipping something we cant see, have never seen, cant see, touch, feel, hear anything. but i do think that there is something up there cuz life is far to complex to have started randomly
I'm a cynical of nowadays' world. As a matter of fact I believe that life is long enough and that it is a very pleasant experience. I basicly consider myself as being atheist, I just believe in a certain in nature way of doing things. Remember, exceptions are what are confirming rules. That's my way of doing things.
I'm gonna go out to eat sushi right now, so I'll continue this discussion later. :cya:
