Just wondering if there were any other atheists or skeptics on this forum from Huntington? Either way really. Give me some basic info like your belief in a deity or not, your general age range and any thoughts you have on the topic.

To those who choose to respond who are religious; Do you believe in a young earth (thousands of years) or an old earth ( billions of years)?

No god, well atleast nothing that resembles us. Earth is god cause that's where life came from and what substains life. So guess I'm saying god is a bitch cause its Mother Nature lol.

Do you believe the Universe was created or do you believed it just "Happened"?

Basically, topix is full of non-christian people who hope there is no God; therefore you'll get a bunch of disbelievers spouting their rhetoric coming from several different angles and interpretations of God's existence. They will be going to hell. This is a fact. Public opinion has no place for discernment of truth. Read your Bible for true answers to who Yahweh is. Go to a gospel centered Church to hear about him. Christians who go to Church and read their Bible know more about God than topix people. Good christians don't even read this filth on this site ... because they practice the tennants of personal holiness.

No. I don't believe the Universe was "created".

I'm not really looking for a debate. However to argue that the Universe is far too wonderous and complex to not have had a creator merely begs the question - If the Universe must have had a creator, then so too must the creator have had a creator and so on to infinity.

I'm really just curious as to whether there were other like-minded people in the area if possible.

Regardless of your beliefs , I'd like to know your general age range and if you are a believer, then do you believe in a young earth or an old earth etc.

I went to church ever we'd and 2 times on Sunday for 25+ years before I changed my beliefs. Everytime you ask a preacher a question that science can answer but he can't be always stated "if you have to ask questions then you don't believe"

I`m probably the only true atheist you`ll get to talk to on Topix. People who claim to be atheist believe in Evolution and other sci-fi non sense. I believe in the facts. Not unproven, untestable, thoery built on popular consensus.

I completely understand the complexity you present. But the point of a diety is that a "supernatural" created the natural. Thus the "infinite" isn`t a question. Same goes for the big bang theory. Everything from nothing triggerd by a unknown catalyst. What created the trigger effect? And what was there to trigger in the first place? It`s the same logic as saying a diety created everything.

I definitely believe in God. I also believe the Bible. I'm not as educated as I'd like to be on this subject, but I know that faith is believing without seeing, and I have faith, as well. Last, but not least, I believe in the Power of Prayer!!! I'm not one to judge others for their beliefs, just stating mine.

I know some will call me crazy and that is ok. My family members went to war so you would be allowed to disagree.

I believe in Jesus. I have had experiences in life that I know for a fact that I would not have survived without divine intervention. I pray and The Lord does answer. I would not lie to anyone about my feelings regarding The Lord.

I have witnessed hopeless situations turn around in my favor with a simple prayer. An honest sincere prayer to a loving God.

I am not sure how to explain all this as I am not a good communicator. This world was created by an all powerful loving God. He granted the very forces of life and nature to this planet that created us a home. Scientists and environmental groups act like humans are parasites on the planet. This is not true. This planet was created by God along with the Heavens to provide us and all the other creatures a home.
God made our bodies compatible with the food sources and amenities this planet has to offer. We are supposed to care for our fellow humans and animals as brothers, sisters, and value life.

Humans are designed to be loving.
Please remember this and let us all strive everyday to promote love and faith among each other. This is what The Lord would want us to do. He gave us everything. Lets quit messing it up and enjoy our blessings.

I do not believe in God. I feel religion is a construct created by man to manipulate others and establish a moral code--a means to feel superior, avoid the finality of death, practice an indoctrination that starts at childhood, and justify prejudice and hate for others. The Bible is full of contradictions that are too numerous to list, and many so called Christians cherry pick the "beliefs" they choose to enforce.

Religion today is simply mythology. Almost all follow a similar formula: miracle birth (around winter solstice), incongruent moral code that "revolutionizes" or renders obsolete previous beliefs (most following Hamarubi's Law), death (around the fall equinox),and resurrection after three days.

With that point made, I have no problem with anyone's right to practice religion. It simply needs to be kept in places of worship and away from government and public institutions. Personally, I do not want to hear about the parting of the sea, death of all male children in Egypt, a burning bush, all the animals of the world on an ark, and countless other impossible fairy tales. It is simply the adult version of Santa Claus.

There is a lot of non believers. The Bible says "a chosen few".... I believe it even more now after reading this.

This is the wrong question. Obviously, there is a God. However, in answering the correct question, the reality is that God is seldom, if ever, good. Where modern Christians go wrong is their mistaken belief that God is good and somehow cares about them and the outcome of their lives. In reality, God has as little care for us as we do for gnats that swarm around out heads in the summer. Even worse, God appears oftentimes (read your bible) to actually cause harm and bad things for individual humans.

When someone hates me, I have a hard time loving them and, the sad fact is, God hates us all.

Obviously? I disagree. Explain why it is so obvious, please.
