    I really wish I knew, those questions keep spawning more questions, and I get overwhelmed with anxiety, I just don't know I'm like lost in all aspects of my life.

    I know there is a God. He/she is called by many names, but it's all the same thing.

    God IS unconditional love.

    I believe that death is like waking up from a dream, be it a pleasant one, or a nightmare.

    Heaven and hell are just two different states of mind. Heaven is real because God created it, hell is not because we did. We are in hell no. I believe Earth is an outward manifestation of our insane desire to be separate from God, and so Earth is a hellish state of mind made manifest.

    I believe that the Devil is representative of the ego which separates us from each other, and evil is following the ego's guidance as opposed to God's.

    I believe that there is very little truth in the Bible. Then it got surrounded by half-truths but mostly complete nonsense.

    I believe that the beginning of time was the beginning of our separation from God. Therefore, evolution is a natural outcome of what WE created and wanted.

    I believe there are many other worlds with many different types of creatures, many not in our dimension/frequency range. If we could see into all the dimensions, we would see all different types of creatures that share the Earth with us but how we are unaware of each other.

    I believe that "life" on Earth is much more like death than life. I believe to be truly alive you need nothing to sustain yourself and are without a body. We use food to survive and eventually "die" but all that can sustain the universe is love because everything is made up of love however it is perceived. There is nothing you could find but love. And God asks no sacrifice be made that you receive the love he/she constantly gives.

    God loves you. No need to worry ever. You are safely in God's arms forever.

    If there is some kind of intelligent creator, I do know that it's very unlikely to be anything like what is described in the babble. A "god" that would punish it's creations for doing what it obviously designed them to do would not be worthy of worship.

    I don't think anyone gets out of life alive.

    Why should I? I think it's one possibility among countless possibilities. But there is no evidence that anything at all happens when we die other than we rot, turn to dust and that's that.

    Yes. I'm in it.

    No.

    Do you believe in evil?

    No.

    I have one. I'd have to be pretty dumb not to believe it's there. It was obviously written in whatever passed for an asylum in it's day.

    I don't believe in anything.

    I think it would be pretty strange if there wasn't. Everything we know tells us that there's nothing particularly remarkable about our little corner of the universe. If life came about (by whatever means it did so) here, why not elsewhere?

    That isn't really something I care to ponder that much. No matter what I think, we're here and I wouldn't accomplish a thing if I sat here and drove myself nuts trying to solve the riddle of life and existence. I'm crazy enough as it is. Smarter people than me have dwelt upon the question their whole lives and never figured it out. I don't need an answer and it wouldn't do me any good if I believed one thing or another. Nothing will change. I will die in the end just like everyone else who's ever lived.

    I know why I live. I live to suffer. Whatever semblance of the thing we call fate exists, it has apparently cursed me. I will suffer (in some form or another) for as long as I exist. I always have and it just gets worse.

    I believe there is good and bad in everyone, and that has nothing to do with religion!

    As for the rest, its just bible bullshit! It just gives people something to believe in, thats it's only purpose!

    Do you believe that there is a God? Definitely maybe. :tongue:

    Who do you believe that God to be? If it exists at all, something akin to Aristotle's unmoved mover. Not personal and loving, not remotely interested in humans.

    What do you believe about death and what happens after we die?

    Do you believe in heaven? No, I do not believe in an immaterial soul that survives death.

    Do you believe in hell? No, see above.

    Do you believe in the devil? No, the idea is stupid.

    Do you believe in evil? Yes.

    Do you believe in the Bible? As a historical document, sure. As a guide of moral conduct or anything of that sort, no.

    Do you believe in creation or evolution? I lean toward evolution, but might be argued into some sort of "theistic evolution" also.

    Do you believe that there is other life in the universe besides us? Yes, but also that we'll never meet them and they'll never meet us. Space is just too big to cross.

    Why do you believe we live? I don't believe there is any reason other than that which each individual comes up with.

    your mentality is scary only because millions of people think like you, people like you helped Bush to power in 2000 and 2004, people like you are making the earth a worse place to live for those who wanted to live in this life in peace and happiness

    I blame you people for alot of my problems, I hate you people with every fiber of me being

    The bolded part is the scariest part, words can not describe how much I hate you people, you have destroyed this earth

    I wish Christianity didnt frown upon suicide like other cults, I cant believe what Christians have done to this earth
