    Does my title make you tremble? Did I just break a taboo no one would dare say? Oh please...

    Does God exist? If so, state your legitimate reasons.
    If no, also state your legitimate reasons.

    Impossible to tell objectively. It's a matter of faith to make a statement either way.

    There is not one person who has not cursed God in their lifetime.
    Every single person on this Earth has wondered why God would do this to them? Why God would cause them any kind of suffering if He is loving?

    We either have to accept that God does not exist - which leaves us lonely.
    God is sadistic - which leaves us scared.
    Or that we did this to ourselves. It is my belief God loves us so much he allows us to do whatever the fuck we want. And if that means killing ourselves and each other, he will still not intervene. If we want to be with Him, how lovely. If not, he waits forever not one second giving up hope.

    No problem in cursing God. God cannot be hurt. F*ck God! Say it as often as you like. God is not vengeful or sadistic. Be okay with not believing or even hating God. I was there, we've all been there, or are there now, or simply do not believe.

    :heart:

    Doesn't exist, wishful thinking, the Norse gods were cooler, cake is better than pie, etc. etc.

    When I get mad, I curse God out the door. I really have a go at it. Like David Banner says:

    "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry."

    No, he does not.

    My belief is, according to the bible, god flooded the earth because of all the sins.

    What could've possibly been so bad back then? Maybe a few people stealing and whatnot. What's today? Bombs big enough to destroy the world? People flying planes into towers, war, I don't need to list the problems, we all know them. So why isn't this "god" doing anything about it? He either just doesn't care and laughs at the downfall of humanity... or he just doesn't exist.

    it isn't a matter of faith to say you don't believe. it is a matter of a lack of faith. that's just silly.

    "I don't believe" and "There is no God" are entirely different statements

    Reasoning? the fact we're all here isn't a bad start.

    My personal view is that we all got to where we are through evolution. That said, folks who totally deny the existence of God (whatever, and whichever 'God' this is), such as Richard Dawkins, and who make a big song and dance about it, irk me immensely. I'd say I'm an agnostic - but with an leaning towards evolutionism. Folks should be given the choice to choose whatever religion or belief they want, be that totally for-religion, or totally anti-religion, or anything in between. As long as they don't inflict it upon the rest of us, I've no problem.

    I believe in God and would not hesitate to share my beliefs with others. but i also respect their beliefs. As with anything, whatever stance you take, words can be twisted and turned to fit that stance. It is a matter of how you perceive things. Sometimes things cannot be proven. They exist on faith alone.

    Speaking of religion matters, moderators, please unban me from chat. I have been banned for over a month now... I beg upon your knees.

    He is right, it's a matter of faith to believe in such a Divine entity. To say that one is atheist does not take faith.

    Human beings during the past centuries had no inklings of how the sun went up/down, tides come in/out, basically the nature workings of the earth. Today, we have a very clear comprehension of the universe. Mind you, beings cannot accept that fact that there is no such thing as an afterlife. Wishful thinking is what it is called, my friends.

    Be rational you idiotic dunces.

    If you believe in God, you're irrational.
    Therefore, if you are rational, you do not believe in God.
    Rationality indicates that God is irrational.

    This is circular logic [i.e. if you accept it, you're irrational.]

    Actually, scientists may know more than they did a hundred years ago, however not all knowledge is empowering, instead they are just if not more clueless than they were before.

    As for your access to chat, a courtesy PM was sent to you by myself informing you that a review had been set for Dec 3rd regarding your access to chat. You still retain full access to the forum however, I think the slower pace will be more beneficial to you in the mean time.

    I can't say that I have ever cursed any Gods.

    Again, no.

    A bit of a leap that one!

    Well, I guess if you had decided that your God exists and was like that you would be scared. Why you would decide your God was like that is a bit of a puzzle to me as loads to choose from - maybe invent (or "reinterpret") your own?
