Choosing Hell. Why?!!!

I choose Hell just as you walked away from the idea of logic and proof. There may be some kind of God, but I don't think he has a place of eternal damnation and I don't think he is a single parent who writes books. We have no idea who or what God is, it is beyond human consciousness and thought.  (Jan 2, 2009 | post #13033)

Prove there's a god.

The existence of a divine being has long been a question that man has asked. We are a species defined for are aptitude for reason and logic, but the idea of God seems to contradict this simple ideal, we have no solid evidence for his existence, and yet millions of people believe in some form of divine being. Philosophers and Theologians have long since tried to reason out some way or another of proving the existence of God, whether is be a logical way describing God’s existence within us, or a Cosmological way of proving existence by the complexity of the universe. But even with these theories and proofs, we come to a problem of evil, why must people suffer and die and be miserable if this divine being exists? The simple question would be that he simply doesn’t, but man can not accept this rationale and it is for that reason we have long since tried to explain God’s reasoning instead of his possible non-existence. We are a species looking for guidance and God seems to fill that void. I believe that it is impossible to truly know if God’s existence is real or not, but in the end it doesn’t even matter, because even if God is not “real” he has still influenced millions of people to live better lives and be happier believing that there is someone out there always looking out for them. I believe this idea of proving divine existence may be put to rest by a simple comment by Charles Darwin, “The safest conclusion seems to me to be that the whole subject is beyond the scope of man’s intellect, but man can do his duty.”  (Jan 2, 2009 | post #60381)

Who is God?

Let me begin this discussion with a disclaimer, as I could see it getting out of hand with the wrong state of mind. I am creating this discussion not to prove one way or the other a certain religious belief, but personal ideals. I am a student of philosophy/Theolog y, pursuing a future Ph.D in Religion. I want to see individual perceptions of who "God" is. Is he Jesus Christ, Yahweh,Krishna, all of them, none of them? And the second part of the question is this, why do you believe this, was it a life changing experience or simply a mindless following? Think deeply about yourself and give REASONING to your belief, not simply, "because it is true..." Thank you for all who respond. I deeply appreciate the time taken to answer.  (Jan 2, 2009 | post #1)
