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.

If you are speaking of NDEs themselves, I already know more of the science involved than you will ever read about.
That's assuming you can read.
No you don't. Unless you also know that they are hallucinations.

Yours will be different.
The very fact that they are all different is why they were easy to figure out to be nothing more than hallucinations.

Omnipotence, omniscience, omnibenevolence, things like that.
Does he asnswer prayers? Are women second class citizens? Is beating a slave ok as long as he doesn't die right away? Did he really flood the entire world? Did he send himself to earth in human form so he could kill himself and then go be with himself sitting at his own right hand? Does he care if you go to church? Does he demand 10% of your income? Does he judge you by faith or by works?
Things like that.
That depends on what theory of God u believe!

If u believe in the Christian/Muslim theory, then yes, God is all those things and he did and allows slaves etc.. But if u go with the Indian theory of God then that is totally different.

The Indian belief is that consciousness is God. There is no man sitting in the sky listening to your prayers. But our god (consciousness) does not like violence, so treating people badly, keeping slaves, and everything else u said is not believed by us!

Indian religions have always thought of God scientific. They never believed in actual gods living in the sky.

<quoted text>I'm not talking as a religious person, i'm talking as a student of science! I have the right to question both religion AND science!

Most Indian people have never been against science, we love science and we r very good at it! But what's starting to piss me off is that science is turning into a friggin' religion! Don't question the theories or we'll throw u out of our 'club' and call u thick!!
Depends on the question.

I used to think there was no such thing as a stupid question.

I don't believe that anymore.

Evolution is a THEORY, dumb ass. Remember that before spouting it off as evidence.
How many times do you have to be told:-

1. Evolution is a FACT.
2. The Theory of Evolution (how it works) is still been worked on.

But you will come back and say the same thing again and again and again and ...... again.

I know molluscs who are smarter than you.

They questions i ask scientists/lecturers/religious people r not stupid! Most of the time i get decent answers from people but sometimes i get pissed off!

Did i tell u that i asked a sikh priest why don't sikhs cut their hair and he turns around and says "that's a stupid question"! And he said that to me in front of everyone at the gurudwara, i was like what the f*ck!!

Then i've had science people say i don't wanna talk about it, when i've asked them about the double slit experiment! it's like what the f*ck! I'M YOUR STUDENT AND I WANT TO KNOW! And i hate it more when they laugh at u, that's worse!

I would just really appreciate it if someone would at least TRY to answer my questions or just put their hands up and say sorry we don't know!

I don't have the same beliefs as Redneck, I hope that's clear!

Getting roasted gives you something to do. Wishing you could exist as something, and can't, is a lot worse.

Yes I suppose that would be rough for the first billion or so years.
