Kent Hovind is not a scientist, he knows absolutely nothing about evolution. This site is filled with propagandic ******** and is not informative at all.

Please come back when you actually have a real scientist talking about these things.

I only worship the great lord Cthulu. And when he does awaken and summon the ancient ones, as the world falls apart and people slip into insanity. They will look up at me, saying "Please, save us..." and I will stare back them, grinning, and answer "No."

If you see how beautiful and balanced everything is, it's kinda hard to be skeptical to pantheism.

Well...yes and no? Pantheism is just atheism, and the core of pantheism is completely arbitrary towards how that person views the universe.

Pantheism is believing that the universe is the manifestation of god. I'm agnostic, but it is incredible how balanced forces are, the placement of celestial objects. But it could be the product of endless trial and error throughout eons of process. Either way, beautiful.

" but it is incredible how balanced forces are, the placement of celestial objects. But it could be the product of endless trial and error throughout eons of process. Either way, beautiful."

Well yeah it is, but against it's a purely subjective observation and nothing more.

"But it could be the product of endless trial and error throughout eons of process"
Evidence has shown this to be likely true.

" I'm agnostic"
But are you theist or an atheist? I'm agnostic as well, but I'm asking for you to explain your current state of belief.

No proof for or against god, why I'm agnostic. Nothing is can be considered objective, but our subjective interpretations of our observations shows how it is not surprising if there is a guiding hand. But that doesn't mean there is one. We are just going in circles.

You can't prove a negative. The only way to do something similar to that is to try and fail at proving positives.

I have something on my mind that I would like to share revolving around heaven and hell.

Both heaven and hell seem flawed in design. The concept of eternity doesn't truly work in regards to our lives as humans. To explain, if one were to live forever, to be immortal, eventually our humanity will fade away. Eventually he will lose all care of society and happiness and sadness and become a husk of a human. This works in the exact same way with someone in heaven or hell. Eternal suffering is illogical because EVENTUALLY you will either become accustomed to it or become that already mentioned husk of a human. And heaven is an even better example as it is eternal bliss. What the **** is eternal bliss? Having sex with women all day every day? EVENTUALLY, maybe over the course of millions of years, that will become boring. And maybe you'll move on to something else. Maybe you'll pick up a sport in heaven. Maybe you'll get bored of that and learn to play an instrument. It seems as if the concept of heaven is insanely shallow in design among the minds of the religious. They just end the definition of heaven right after saying that it is eternal happiness. EVENTUALLY you are going to devolve from whatever god fearing individual you are into some hooker killing crack head as you will EVENTUALLY get really bored of playing baseball for literally ETERNITY. And to continue, happiness is only existent because of its relation to sadness and pain. Heaven would have to consist of bad. ****, we would probably make it ourselves as we do that in the "real world." This is what confuses me most about religion. Nobody likes questioning the mind-numbingly large flaws in it. Like how I guess that God would have to continuously brainwash us each day in order to keep us in a cycle of blissful ignorance for eternity in heaven or pain and agony in Hell.

If you have taken the time to read this wall of text than I would like to hear your opinion because I'm stumped as hell.

I go to a Catholic school where we are required to take theology courses. I'm on my seventh one now and I've asked this question in many different ways to many different teachers - who have their masters in the subject - and the best answer any of us can get out of them is along the lines of this:

Heaven is eternal bliss and we'll never be able to comprehend what thats like.

seriously. That's their answer. They say you will have no wants - like you wont want sex with woman or to play sports or anything. So then i ask, does that mean you just... sit there? for eternity? and.. its enjoyable? Like.. you have no thoughts, no curiosities, no desires, no jokes, nothing. Nothing to do, nothing to think about. Isn't that just the same thing as being dead without a heaven?
And I assume Hell has some similar answer. The religion is so focused on getting into heaven that it is more relevant for me to try to debate with teachers and students about in class.

Scientists are always ready to adapt the conclusions with the introduction of new evidence, as long as no evidence for something can be found, the conclusion must be that itsimply is not so/there.

Else, we'd be waiting for evidence for something for all eternity just because some people believ in it.

Despite the lack of evidence for their existence, i believe in unicorns, but because there is no evidence that they do not exist the conclusion must be that they do exist.

Gravity is still a theoretical thing lacking a lot of evidence before it can be called a real thing and yet everyone believes in it. I'm not trying to sound like a jackass/smartass, but only using example I heard before.

No, we lack evidence for an explenation to gravity, but the evidence to gravitis existence is all around us.

Largest mass attracts smaller mass: there is a thing we call gravity.

But there are many theorys exactly why and how gravity exists, and those are lacking evidence, and all are debated until evidence arises.

Question time?
Where do you believe everything came from? Again, I know this may come over as really passive aggresive, but it's not intended that way. Im just really curious on your views.

We don't really know yet, but then again, years earlier we didn't knew about the big bang yet either, wich's radiation is still measured today.

I personally don't want to believe anything about that yet, time and research will tell.

I'm kind of getting a vibe that you're religious, that's okay, but here's one for you.

Where would your god 've come from?

Same place as the all matter at the beginning of time and space and all that the good stuff came from I'd guess. I try to be agnostic about it, but I just can't wrap my head around where matter came from in the first place.
The first atom/quark/electron/whatever would have been the start of everything, but where could it have come from? I just get really frustrated with the question and thinking that something living, I suppose, created it gives me some form of comfort.
And either way I'm a little scared of death, and a little scared of us (humanity), being all alone in a vast, empty bathtub where there are no one else to talk

I know exactly what frustration you're talking about, i'm blessed cursed with an overactive brain and could think a lot about that sort of stuff in only a few years.
And the only sollution to that frustration is not answers, but acceptance, acceptance that things just are, without a reason, without a goal or motivationg, without a source, without a purpose. and everything that followed out of the just being is just a large cosmic coincidence.

Well, either way, "God" hardly matters to me. I believe that whatever destiny awaits this species, it's our design that laid its groundwork. Wether it's total anhiliation or the explorers of our galaxy, it was humanity that got there.
By our own brain and brawn we carved ourselves quite the history and even though it's probably not the most admirable in all aspects, I'm quite proud to call myself human.
God or our own future can only sit back and watch because someday, we will surpass both.

Yes, but are we, the ones that got where we are today, not mere products of physics? Electric circuitry, run and designed by physics, propelled by evolution.
If we would have evolved differently, and say that Dogs would've become the dominant species, does the design, the plan then suddenly shifts it focus towards dogs? Are we so much better than an atom because we are aware? (ofwich bein aware is yet again a product of the atoms we are built of)

Anyway, that was entertaining, beddy-by time now for me, will reply to anything tomorrow.
See ya.

See ya! : )
PS
Reason I believe we are better than any other "natural" being is that we don't obey the natural laws. We are doing something unique and unlike any other living organism, we are trying to make the deciscion to be better and to be peacefull. Unlike the atom that will always obey curtain rules, we will always fight for these rules to suit us best.
Of all beings I know exist, humanity is the only one that will always try to create a situation where he/she wins, regardless of what the natural order should have been.

Physics and cicuitry, it doesn't matter, we are conscious and we are here because we were lucky enough, strong enough and stubborn enough to stand where everyone else fell. That is one hell of a legacy, regardless of what empty void that is reality and its pointlessness, humanity made a point for existence by merely being part of it, and that is more than any lawabiding atom can ever say.
They will forever follow the patterns and the laws that we discovered and that we understood, and they will never leave those patterns. But humanity set out with one goal and that was to create so many patterns that everyone could choose one. An atom only has one pattern, one future, but our future is up to ourselves.
Have a damn good night and sleep well friend, for you are a combination of atoms more unique and unimaginable than any star or gascloud out there and you have a choice that most other beings can only dream of. Sleep well indeed.

I believe, that if god exists, he is all knowing, therefore he created me knowing full well that i would lack faith in his existence. and to condemn me to hell for doing exactly what he knew i was going to do, is unfair, and evil in it's own right. and if that were the case, then i would not worship this being anyway, i would rather burn in hell.

whether he controls us, or not, he supposedly at the very least created the first humans. but he did this, as an all knowing being. which means he knew full well what path i would take. and to allow my creation, knowing i would be sent to hell, before i ever even existed, is not a quality of a being i would ever worship.

It all depends on the religion you follow. Some will say god made you, others say he only created the first humans, and then watches over us. It's sort of a take a chance thing.

I actually questioned people on this. If you were to exclude everyone but those you like from your group, you aren't too good. If you were to punish only the evil, then you aren't really bad. What if our views on religion is wrong? What if god wanted us to be his slaves or something, and the devil free'd us, allowing us to have a real life?

I don't even know what to say but that's a really good point my moms side of the family is full of super religious catholics so im just kinda fed up with it all now.i think my breaking point was debating on evolution and what the bible says about gays with my best friend (whos all about adam and eve and that being gay is a choice and its wrong) and after a while I was like **** this, if this is what god is teaching I don't want to be a part of it.

with the whole gay thing, though I agree that its just how they are born, I do know one that has gone too far from it. Any way he can prove he is gay, he will do it. He will constantly share on facebook and show everyone in classes these gay rights things, and blames his horrible drawings we had to do of a nude model on having to see her vagina. If I can handle seeing a dick and keep drawing, he should be able to draw a vagina :/

Long story short, I think he is gay for the status symbol of it -.- (or at least puts on an act)

ugh some people are just douchebags >.< I know a guy who does the opposite; he's obviously gay (that sounds bad but I swear it's true :o) but he tries wayyy too hard to talk about how much he loves girls and never shuts up about it. also, each and every one of his friends is a female, and they all think he's gay too. the reason it bothers me is because I wish people would just own **** they can't help, like yeah you're gay so what? I don't make a big deal out of being straight so wtf?
