Prove to me god exists, and I will believe in him.
Prove to me he does not, and I will not.
The fact of the matter is, we don't know whether or not god exists, and we can't know, by definition. So, its pretty much pointless to argue, isn't it?

I never said were we verifying the existence of god, in fact, thats exactly what I was NOT saying. All I'm saying is we can't know, so there isn't any point in arguing.

To be honest, I wouldn't mind sacrificing a few hours a week, just on the off chance that eternal happiness and infinite paradise exists after death. I'm just playing it safe, but if he DOES exist, I'd rather be on his good side.

To know a bit about human biology and the mere concept of an afterlife is beyond stupid.

Your brain is who you are, it holds every single thought and action you've ever taken, to think that if you die that you'd have some form of spectral back up drive that stored it all but never kicks in if someone becomes braindead, never kicks in to help those who are left disabled..

Sure, it'd be ******* nice if there was an afterlife and I could once again see and hear my father again who died when I was little, but no..

The world is not that merciful, there is no afterlife, every mistake you make is permanent, every decision is eternal, no second chances, either you become something in life or you don't.

Trust me, I wish there was an afterlife, but every bit of knowledge about the world speaks against such posibilities.

It's actually a misconception that the brain holds your memories. Yes, it's the control center for your whole body. But If you really think it's able to store every sound and every image and every smell and every sense you've ever experienced for your ENTIRE LIFE then I think it's you who's beyond stupid.
User avatar #231 to #230 - certifiedidiot (03/28/2013) [-]
And what does exactly hold your collective thoughts, memories and such then?
#233 to #231 - mrmamric (03/28/2013) [-]
The mind. Having an external entity that controls and holds thoughts and memories is not as far out as one might suspect. In fact, many tests have shown that a mind is possible to exist, and could even be the explanation to aberrated reincarnation (where you have the same memories as someone who already died) or actual reincarnation. The mind may not exist on the same plain of existence as the rest of the physical universe, but could still communicate to it through metaphisical or telekinetic means.

In essence: the mind acts as a sort of "bank" for memories, as well as being the id, or I, of the person. It can communicate to the brain via signals (Like cloud storage on your computer) and can thusly communicate with the rest of the physical universe using the body. That could be why your brain is so important to survive. It acts as a sort of internet connection to you, and without it you can't get your metaphorical Dropbox folders of knowledge and intellect. After your body dies the mind could possibly just "choose" another and continue to live through it.

To discount actual life, or etal vital, is not scientific at all. There is an obvious acceleration in body decompostion when one is dead, and you can't simply reanimate the body as easily as gluing the pieces back together in a toy. That could be why we are unable to resurrect or create new life without sexual means as we don't have the important parts: the mind.

Again, this is all just speculation and based off pure observation. But so is anything else.

Edit: corrected spelled of Elan Vital

That has to be one of the silliest piles of **** I've ever read.
#236 to #235 - mrmamric (03/28/2013) [-]
So be it. If you want to believe one thing instead of another then I can't argue with that.

Meh, not really. If one looks at the way god supposedly works, we see that he operates outside of normal biological parameters.
User avatar #224 to #223 - certifiedidiot (03/28/2013) [-]
Yeah, the example of a creature that created EVERYTHING ever, still needed to make a human female pregnant, possibly risking her life, to bring his avatar onto Earth.

You can trust science to make a cart, develop it further into a car, dig up precious metals from the earth, drill up deep oil and transform the oil into gasoline, to melt the metal and reshape it, assemble it all and create a car, you can trust it to do all that, you can trust it to try and save your life..

I've seen zero, none, nada reasons to worship this supposed god, he is said to have created everything so long ago, he was very active back in those times, but now with modern times, ways to record, to prove his exsistance, he remains cold towards us, never answering a prayer or thought..

Yet I've seen millions of reasons to worship mankind, a race that beat the odds of evolution, who started out thousands of years ago with ever so little, to go from a tiny rowboat to a ship that carve the ocean in half as it move, to learn flight, deep diving and even to visit other worlds..

And yeah the stories does say god works under unrestricted paramters, but those are only stories, no proof or anything.

Anyway, I don't disagree with you, I'm just saying that if people believe in the after-life, that's why.
User avatar #226 to #225 - certifiedidiot (03/28/2013) [-]
I know I can't do much about faith, simple as that.

It just seems to me like the dependcy on technological innovations and the continued faith in an after-life for example it just isn't two dots that connect to me and I can't help but to ponder as to how they can connect the two, well ,faith of course but do they never look at everything there is, ponder about it all and try to connection the two..

Blargh, too philosophical, dota time
User avatar #227 to #226 - Endofzeeworld (03/28/2013) [-]
Can't do dota, just don't have the skill. I guess I'll just go play league for hours.
And hours.
And hours.
User avatar #228 to #227 - certifiedidiot (03/28/2013) [-]
What you mean by skill?

I mainly hear that League is just simply more fast paced than Dota 2 as the main differences
User avatar #229 to #228 - Endofzeeworld (03/28/2013) [-]
I dont know, I just find that I die a lot more in Dota 2 at beginner level than in league. I think Dota is a more subtle game that League.

Im pretty sure that just believing in God "the safe way" and not truly accepting him into your heart would still land you in Hell. And thats a pretty crappy way to live your life too, Id rather live mine to the fullest extent and not worry about these things.

What if when you die you become someone else but don't know you were ever someone else before that and that's why you have your current memmories and not your other person's memorries?

but in buddhism isn't there a space in between your new life? I dunno the thought bothers the **** out of my head by trying to think of myself but as a new person and thinking in that new person's mind I don't even exist so having him think of me is impossible and it gives me a headache

While I respect your opinions and outlooks, I don't actually believe in the do good receive good concept of karma I was on a mission trip recently painting and old black woman's house for her because she has arthritis in her hands and her joints in her legs are so bad she couldn't stand and when we had finished we all went down to the beach for the last time (we were staying at a small rental condo near the beach where we would eat and sleep only) and while I was there my friend managed to mangle my toe with a metal shovel which really put a damper on the I did something good today spirit and then I spend 4 hours in the E.R which was SOOO much fun

And anyway I've always felt the potentials to be good or evil whenever I wanted to it's just I have a very poor work ethic but even then I guess I might be intelligent because by putting in very little work I'm usually capable of receiving great output but there's nothing that really drives me towards wanting to do good for others or nothing really driving me towards doing evil to others either so either I haven't reached a time capable of my potential of good/evil in this world or I simply wasn't meant to do either and branch out a more towards a path of neutrality (Also I couldn't even tell English was your second/third language you put the words down in pretty good grammar as well as your sentences are neither choppy nor do they make the point your making hard to understand

Oh no, I'd accept the **** out of him.

But that's all theoretical talk. I've been living life the way I want and so far I haven't gotten any signs that I need to change. So I'm going to accept that he's cool with me snorting blow off a hooker's ass and death wrestle Russian X military soldiers for fun.
#144 to #140 - mugigs (03/28/2013) [-]
but what if he does exist but all the things you thought he thought were good were actually bad to him?
#146 to #144 - mrmamric (03/28/2013) [-]
Then I'd go to Hell with Bob Ross. Nothing's that bad when you're with Bob Ross.

We can't know for sure if celestial tea pots exist either or the invisible pink unicorn.
