God?? You talk of God?
    #883018 - 09/13/02 10:09 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

So, there's always this argument about the existence of a god and whatnot. It comes and it goes and in the end, no one changes their stance. I guess we're just here to argue then?
Whatever...


I think one thing that makes me different from many is this:

In the end, I really just don't give a shit about the existence or non-existence of a God. My life won't change one bit. My morals won't change. My quasi-beliefs won't change. My persona won't change. My habits won't change. And on and on...

So, really... who cares the most about the (non-) existence of God?

for non-believers, their life won't change as you described, for believers, their life will obviously change as they do what they're told by the church, and religious books.

I still don't think you're understanding, chodamunky...

If God showed him/herself to me... Oh, I'd believe... fuck yeah I'd believe. BUT the only thing in my life that would change would be my belief in the existence of god. NOTHING else would change.

Try this.... take any believer, show them undisputable evidence (yeah, it exists just for this situation) that god does not exist. I can guarantee you that their life will change.

Religion is either for scholars to study or dupes to adhere to.
Structured relationships with divine beings are inherently less meaningful than a personal, mano y mano relationship with god(s).

Well to me the existence of God would imply some sort of life after death. It may not be "heaven" but it might be reincarnation, or you might join up with God in some way in which your consciousness still exists. In a world without God, you would simply cease to exist when you die. That's it. Nothingness. To some this would dictate very different life styles. If you knew death was not the end, there would be no urgency in life to accomplish everything, because you are eternal and you have all the time in the world. This just leads to the question of whether or not your day to day activities would change if you knew you were immortal. For many it would I think.

You're veering off the subject... I'll make a new thread on the afterlife.

Please stick to the topic.

Morrowind: Whatever, just that Im commenting on the fact that you call people who follow religion dopes and whatnot. Theyre as dopey as you, or anyone else for that matter.
Reading comprehension, chief... I said the following:
Religion is either for scholars to study or dupes to adhere to.

DUPE, not d-o-p-e...

I doubt that when God comes in, he goes to some train station and sits there quietly.. If you really were confronted by infinity, I doubt youd stand there unfazed, especially since itd probly shut ur brain down and all.
Where did you get this?

As for "...itd probly shut ur brain down...", err.... yeah, sure...

Dupes don't have to be stupid. Oftentimes, they are quite intelligent.

The plain, unassuming, and often unintelligent man makes a good dope but a lousy dupe. Falling for a ruse often takes intelligence and imagination- a sense of the possible rewards. The blunt man will not take the bait because he does not recognize it. He is that unaware.

But I digress... and you never answered my first question.
"Who cares the most about the (non-) existence of God?"

The follow up question is "Should they?"
