Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Then if your god actually existed, he'd be a sadistic entity, your point is?
Kitten, can u help me? I need help with what Redneck said.

If I have to choose between X and Y, I choose X, if God knows I chose X that means what I chose has already been written, right? For God to know which one I will choose, he has to have seen the future? That means destiny is preordained?

Thanks, I was just confused with that.

Anyone else can help too, thanks!

Oh? So not yet knowing its cause is automatically "God did it"?
Is that your point?
If so, what caused "God"?
You assume too much,but from the general tone of your posts to me thats not surprising.
Nobody knows is my point and "God" is as likely the cause as any explanations offered by Krauss and Hawking.BTW I'm glad to see you at least conceed the folly that nothing is not really nothing.

No, It doesn't come on TV in England. Is it any good?
I'm going to watch the new ice age soon, do u like those films?
I can't remember. It's just a kids show.

I did like the Ice Age movies. I didn't know there was a new one.

Some of those new digitally animated movies are crap, some are good. Luckily I've avoided most of the crappy ones. I really liked Finding Nemo.

I'll streamline it for you.

Free will is an illusion. A physical being with omniscience is not physically possible. Free will and omniscience cannot be part of a universe that operates how we think ours does. If we are wrong about what is possible and what is impossible, we can't say anything about anything.

Are you more confused now?

LOL, I still watch kids shows, is that sad? I don't know when I'm going to grow up! Have u ever watched; watch my chops?

It's called ice age: continental drift.

Yh, that was a great film. I love Dory, that poor fish, I was going to cry if Merlin left her! I learnt how to speak whale from her, she's very cool!!

Bolt was funny, too. Oh, shark tale was awesome!!

"Watch my Chops" - I haven't seen it.

It's not sad. I still watch lots of kids shows. Some of them are just not relevant for adults. Something made for young children only ends up being really boring, but something made for older children or teenagers can remain relevant for adults.

You should never grow up if you can help it.

Hopefully science will, one day!

Until then, this is my faith, I don't need proof and I don't need to prove my faith to anyone, it's not like science, it's not based on fact, it's a philosophy.

Then why not simplify matters and say "The Universe has always been here, it wasn't created and it can't be destroyed, it just is"?

Why add an unnecessary "God" to it?

And you calculate this probability how, exactly?

Because everything in the universe can be destroyed; the earth, sun, moon, life, everything can. If something has an end it must have a beginning, right? So something must have made the universe.

Watch my chops was really cute, it was about a talking dog, who can surf the net, too. You just don't know who you could be talking to, over the internet! That's relevant for all us adults, it makes u aware of the world out there!



Yh, I know, some are boring as hell!

OK!:-)

I see.
You think that God should still hover over the face of the waters so that you can see Him like you can see a cloud.......
You expect a being like God to sit down with everyone in the world tonight for dinner & explain His ways....
This is not what God wants. He wants you to have faith in Him and He wants you to find Him.
He won't find you.
Thanks once again for demonstrating what an evil prick your God really is. The sole reason there are thousands of difference religions and just as many different Gods is the fact that your God, supposedly the ONE TRUE, God, has remained hidden. Because we have so many different religions, each claiming there's is the ONE TRUE GOD, is the reason mankind has torn each other to shreds over this conflict of ideology. Millions of humans have suffered and dies in misery because this vain prick chooses to remain hidden. How divisive has this been to our species? Yet your god sits and watches his most prized creations rip each other apart. What a self-centered egotistical evil little prick......."come find me, I'm here if you look hard enough.....nope your cold....getting warmer though....WARMER.....ooops, cold again."
