I understand you completetly. Now I hang out on NationStates forum and there are way too many "religion-vs-atheism" threads. Those people just don't get it!

I dont have a real problem with Christians, other than as someone else has said with government power and enforcing it on others.

I dont care if people try to convert me either, I handle it. Sure I think its rude when someone rocks up and tells me I'm going to hell, but as above thats uncommon.

My "problem" with it, is that I dont see how intelligent people can come to that conclusion. I mean you believe things like evolution - and so you should. But how come you will follow a book that is such a hugely unreliable source.
The truth is it scares me that such a large proportion of the world can follow things like the Bible. Sure its got good parts, so does Harry Potter, but choosing to have "Faith" in a book that relies on its self for verification is a massive faux pas.

Its like if someone is spreading the fact that the sky is red. After systematicially weighing up the evidence, I'd say based on what we have observed thus far, the sky is not red.

I'd call myself a missionary of logic, because I think the world would be nicer place if we all looked a little more critically at some of the things we do as humans.

This post is funny as. I agree with the general thinking, organised religion is no good, but spirutuality can greatly benefit individuals.

I have read a fair bit of the bible, it is ok, it is a good action read, like a clancy novel or something.

My thoughts on christianity and religion

Holes can be poked in anything that is not 100% proven but accepting what is logically most reasonable is the obvious choice, radiometric dating, other dating tools and evolution disproove the idea of Christianity(I cant say the same of other religions because I am not too informed on others) The bible claims the earths age is far less than what can be logically proven

I think we are the form of energy, we are god, I am god, You are god, the sun is god, life is god.... I worship me and you and all life, I dont think one presence or one thing is god I think we are god

I'm with you.

I have nothing against christians as individuals.

I just cannot fathom how someone could, reasonably. accept the bible as truth.

I can't prove cap'n crunch doesn't exist in some dimension or on another fucking planet, but that's certainly no reason to give offerings to your breakfast cereal. Logic, when used properly, doesn't work that way. Religion preys on ignorance. Really the god argument just goes round in circles until someone gets bored. It's just a question of acceptance. You can accept reality as it is, or you can just make one up.




If everyone accepted everything at face value, and never dreamed of what else it might be, we would be stuck in the stone ages. Progression happens through imagination, the ability to think outside the box.


--------------------
In an entheogen influenced moment of clarity I came to understand that reality manifests as a dream from the collective subconscious minds of all conscious entities. Nothingness made something because we collectively believe it into being, and physical laws given power by the reinforcement of conscious observation. Creation, destruction, and even time itself are but an aspect of ourselves and we of them. Life and death, simply illusions we face from a limited grasp of our own existence. We are one, all is eternal.

Maybe they experienced something so jaw dropping and seemingly impossible they needed to have an explanation. I have had a few trips where I felt. God was talking to me but I have come to realize it was just me talking to myself.  As long as they are happy and good to others let them do as they please

You joined the Shroomery just to post that? :lol:



In regards to the OP, do Christians know that LSD and shrooms are converting people? Maybe we should tell them so they start promoting drug use.
