Only if you prefer primitive superstition over observable facts.
Some make an intelligent, informed, rational choice while others choose to
believe myths that allow them to feel good.
"I would love to believe that when I die I will live again, that some thinking, feeling, remembering
part of me will continue. But much as I want to believe that, and despite the ancient and worldwide
cultural traditions that assert an afterlife, I know of nothing to suggest that it is more than wishful
thinking. The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive
ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better it seems to me, in our
vulnerability, is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent
opportunity that life provides." - Carl Sagan
Sagan was right.
Wait, Sagan was right because he knows of nothing?

"Carl Sagan was an American astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, author, science popularizer and science communicator in astronomy and natural sciences. He spent most of his career as a professor of astronomy at Cornell University where he directed the Laboratory for Planetary Studies. He published more than 600 scientific papers[2] and articles and was author, co-author or editor of more than 20 books. He advocated scientifically skeptical inquiry and the scientific method, pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI)."

He worked in the fields of Astronomy, Astrophysics, Cosmology, Astrobiology, Space and Planetary Sciences.

He worked with Cornell University, Harvard University, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, and University of California, Berkeley.
He was an advisor to NASA.

"He attended the University of Chicago, where he participated in the Ryerson Astronomical Society, received a Bachelor of Arts in self-proclaimed "nothing" with general and special honors in 1954, a Bachelor of Science in physics in 1955, and a Master of Science in physics in 1956 before earning a PhD in astronomy and astrophysics in 1960."

This guy imagined, considered, studied and experimented with concepts you can't even begin to grasp.
I find his version of reality somewhat more believable than yours.
Yes, Sagan was right.

I know all about Sagan, but thanks.

He should've stayed in astronomy. Once he dove into religion, he kinda lost his way.

He thought that because he didn't find God in outer space, God must not exist.

Very smart idiot.

"He dove into religion?" I don't think religion was ever his focus.
His views on religion were a by-product of his scientific research.
But as an open-minded scientist, he watched for evidence of your "god" everywhere... and his EVERYWHERE was pretty extensive... and he didn't find it. I find that rather interesting.

"Idiot?"
Just because he doesn't agree with YOUR belief in superstitious nonsense?
That is laughable.

What? How could he not "dive" in the religion AND search for God everywhere? That seems a little backwards doesn't it?

Besides, it seems like he only used scientific tools to search for God. A futile attempt.

Only to submissive, backwards minds like yours. Sagan was very aware and an excellent observer.

He looked for "evidence" of many, many things. Your little god was never even a bleep on the radar.....many people believe a god exists and Sagan kept an open mind, something else beyond your meagre capabilities of comprehension.

OIC, Sagan didn't find God on a radar, so obviously.....

Guess what? You can't find you on a radar either.

See how the hate oozes from my heart and into my keyboard? Oooh, it feels to good to hate for my Lord and Savior! I love to pretend that unchristian humanitarians are burning for my Lord! Ohh, I love it!

Please, people; join us in our holy, sacred hate of all things NOT of our Lord Jesus! Jesus will love you for it.

Your presence here proves you know you are lying to yourself. Not a day goes by that I don't laugh at the preposterous activity of a loony bird atheist, griping all day long about something it erroneously thinks doesn't exist, shadow boxing at something it claims isn't there.
You really look extremely STUPID.
SPEW that hate, brother! PRAISE JESUS!!

We Christians do that. Jesus tells us it's okay to HATE all those who disagree with us. It's what He wants.

Keep wondering. Because you're wrong, you simpleton phucksquirt.
NO.... I'm NOT wrong, The being you worship and think is so kind and loving, murders little bibles and destroys unborn fetuses. I can prove it to you if you want, Apparently you're so blinded by your religious brainwashing you either refuse to acknowledge these evils, or can't deal with the reality of it all. Which is it for you? Why are you not totally embarrassed worshiping such a demon?

Based on YOUR BELIFE, I can prove that the God YOU BELIVE in, murders little babies and destroys unborn fetuses. Now if you want to say that this demon God doesn't exist, then thats a very different story. We can also reference passages for your holy book that bears these atrocities out. YES< YES, I know you will twist and turn every which way to absolve your God of any wrong doings. You will do so by redefining the passages, or claiming the translation is faulty, or dead wrong, or all of the above. Just as you did by turning slaves into 'SERVANTS." Have at it, it's one of my more enjoyable experienced watching a brainwashed Christian try and defend his demon God.

When you look at all of life on Earth and all of creation through the lens of religion I suppose that might be true. But when people educated in the sciences look at the same thing they do not see the answer as magic, specifically Godmagic. They see how evolution has produced the life we see today, they understand how planets and stars come to be, NOT CREATED, but formed naturally. They understand that it is entirely possible for life to come from non-living elements. They realize that the human body is comprised of the same elements that are the main ingredient's found in all stars. That life is inevitable based on those facts. The inevitable consequence of complex chemistry.

When you look at all of the life in its unbelievable complexity, when to view the night sky's and realize the unfathomable distances involved, to say it all came to be because some fictitious being snapped his fingers and everything appeared as it is now, cheapens the whole experience. The awe and mystery of the cosmos is far more inspiring than the belief in a mythical finger snapper.

So you believe that God is synonymous with religion? If religion died would God die with it?

Ahhh.....

So you're gonna "prove" God murders & destroys using the Bible, right?

Then you're gonna turn around and say that the Bible is full of myths and lies.

Except, of course, the parts you like.

I don't (or can't) "redefine" any passages. I've been attempting to educate you on the meanings of various passages. You simply refuse to listen. Your mind is all made up.

In turn, you don't get to distort the Bible's passages to your whim.

You don't get to define them.

You need to learn how to learn.

Nope. God doesn't need religion. If it was somehow erased, He'd simply find another way to teach us about Him.

According to your analogy, since we can't find oxygen on a radar screen so you must be dead.....at least from the neck up....maybe below too....

Oh great seer of the mysteries of biblical passages, explain to me the "hidden meaning" the "falsely translated" the "undistorted" behind your God flooding the entire planet in a very "humanlike" fit of rage. Thereby killing countless children and untold number of little babies along with a great number of pregnant women. Next, educate me on your god having another fit of rage and murdering all of the first born males of the Egyptians, more little babies added to his resume.

I don't need to define the obvious. God commanded Moses to keep the young virgins for his soldiers as spoils of war. That passage doesn't need to be "DEFINED" It says what it says, pretty clear as to it's meaning. God commanded that a father kill his own son to show his love for God. How much defining does one need to do on this passage. Clear as can be. "KIll your son so I will know you love me" What kind of sick f--k demands that to show love? Explain to me how anyone can possible come to any other conclusion for passages this explicit?
