Quote from: Stevil on September 05, 2011, 08:45:02 AMTo answer "Why God?", you need to ask "Why Me?"It's a very simple intuitive philosophical question, exploding into a plethora of complicated, intricate and textured puzzles.Who am I?How come I am me and not someone else?Have I always been?Where will I go when my body fails?Why am I in this body, in this time and place?Where did I come from? Yeah, I know, Dad's jizz, Mum's egg in the oven. But I am more that just flesh and bone. I am master of this body I possess. With it's limits and flaws, I am not that mirrored reflection, I am much more. Don't judge me on how I look, how dare you, this vessel is pure chance. It's what is on the inside that is my pride and joy, I've crafted and shaped myself, I've removed my constraints, I've expanded my horizons, expectations and imagination. I can control who I am, just not so much on what I look like.But I am special, I am not someone else, I am me. I have consciousness and intelligence, creativity and personality. I am certainly no stupid animal. There is no-one quite like me, never has been, never will be again. I am special, I am unique.But what chance was there of me being me. If a different sperm had made it to that egg, if mum hadn't been in the mood that day, if mum and dad had fallen for someone else instead, what about grandma and grandpa? if they hadn't got together. Wow, the mind boggles. The chances against me being born are stupidly horrendously infinitesimally small, almost negligible. I shouldn't be here, I shouldn't be me. It just doesn't make sense that I am here.But then someone tells me about god. It completely makes sense. God made me in his image, god made this place for me (I mean) us. I was meant to be, god had a plan and I was always going to be in it. God loves me and wants me to come to heaven with him afterwards. It's all part of god's plan, and now I know my purpose.But then someone tells me about evolution. You've got to be fu%#ing kidding, right. You look like a damn monkey, me, god created me in his image, I'm special, not just some outrageous random chance, an evolved monkey for god's sake! God is bigger than you and me, he created us because he loves us, he loves me. I'm special I tell you, all of creation was made for me (I mean) us. You can shove that fu%#ing monkey up your a$$ you c@ck s&%king atheist, devil worshiping child of godless wh%re. F%$k you, who the F*%@ do you and your %&king d*&^% t%$^ pri#k.You just need to believe you d%&kwad, you filthy p%$!n w*nk#r, go k&ll yo%$self, and sh*t and die.God loves you, you know. God IS love, why are you such a blind p&n!sfaced jockstrap and deny this fact. God doesn't want your hate and lies. You monkey lover, why don't you just go back to the jungle where you belong, F&*ck You!
Quote from: Stevil on September 05, 2011, 08:45:02 AMHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Made my day that much brighter. And I think one of the main reasons people still believe is as a security blanket. So that if God is real, and heaven as well as hell do exists, by believing one is guaranteed as spot in Heaven.
Quote from: Pharaoh Cat on December 26, 2011, 12:23:16 PMI will add the fact that people often need to believe in a just universe. They need to believe justice is part of the overall cause and effect of nature. And so the murderer dies of illness or accident and this is attributed to angry ghosts, or vengeance demons, or the August Supreme Emperor of Jade. A universe indifferent to murder is unthinkable to many. The atheist accepts that if humans fail to avenge murder, then murder will go forever unavenged, for neither bacteria nor viruses, nor gravity nor the laws of motion, nor poisonous nor mighty-jawed beasts, nor weather on land or sea, cares a whit for our mourning.

Quote from: Pharaoh Cat on December 29, 2011, 03:03:17 AMIf you're an atheist, you acknowledge that your life will have no purpose, no justice, no hope, no beauty, and no wisdom, unless you put yourself out on a limb, exposed, vulnerable, fallible, unsure. The theist, by contrast, dares no such thing, but looks instead to God for purpose by fiat, justice by fiat, hope and beauty and wisdom by fiat.
Quote from: Twentythree on December 29, 2011, 09:30:22 PMPrimitive humans got everything they needed from the earth, it stands to reason then that if I wanted something from the earth i.e food or water, it would make sense in my primitive mind that if I give the earth something, I will get what I want from the earth.
