not thoughts, deeds.

also, i dont see what is wrong with 10 commandment system.
dont kill, dont steal, respect your parents, dont cheat on your partner, dont speak bout god too much (this could potentially end all religious debates and conflicts, if people minded their own ir/religious business), work for 6 days rest one, have no idols for no one is perfect.

ALSO, getting an immortal robotic body is ******* epic. at least for me.

even though im a firm atheist i like the Hindu idea of reincarnation and the Buddhist ideas about karma, if you lead a good life then you will come back as something equally as good.

Oh ffs... here we go again.

Where it says I will burn in hell if I question the bible? On the contreary, even Jesus say "seek and you shall find" and he challenged the way the religious looked at the sciptures back then(Martin Luther did as well), so why shouldnt we?

And another thing I find so damn annoying is that people over and over again bring up examples in the old testament trying to justify their own opinion. One thing I have seen often:"Yeah bible say to us not to boil a baby goat in its mother's milk, hur hur!" - No it does not you retards! It doesn't say that to US... according to the bible, WE (non-jews..count for most of us I believe) have got the law of Noah to follow. These are 7 laws, not the 613 laws the israelites got back THEN to keep.

So you don't think many of the laws in the old testament doesn't go hand in hand with our lifes today 3000-4000 years later for non-israelites? Well ******* fantastic, there is a good reason for that, Sherlock.

The OC doesnt ask an objective question in general, it's full of BS based on either fanatical roman catholicism (whatever..) or simple ignorance.

Religious people: Stop getting butt-hurt. You too, atheists. And for all: just because your fan of Jesus or Steven Hawking on your FACEBOOK, doesn't mean you are that person.

******* kids...

This made me think of an interesting thing. It makes the point that god pretty much is not an all loving god if he throws people in a burning pit of fire for going against him. I figure it this way. If we look at the possibility that god is an alien on some planet that he happens to rule and god decided to create a new species by using his DNA and DNA of early humanoids to make us, then things become a bit more realistic because humans have the ability now to splice genetics and create new species. So that is a reasonable thought. Now of course if God created man he will want to experiment with us by giving us rules and seeing if we can use our reasoning power to resist simple temptations and believe in him. If we cannot then we are a failed specimen and are destroyed but if we can do so then we prove we are equals and are rewarded. Now im not sure how many of you believe in supernatural things but if you believe that aliens exist and ghosts exist then a god/creator is most definantly possible. I am not really standing up for christians, im just making a point that if denied would prove ignorance from christian or none christian.

The point about discussing religion is, if you don't know **** about ancient and medieval philosophy, you should keep your mouth goddamn shut.

I do believe in something. Not a man in the sky with white robes, but something. Maybe it's energy? Maybe it's nothing at all. For humans to say with certainty that there is absolutely no higher power is like ants saying there are no humans.   
   
I await red thumbs.

A few years ago I watched a documentary on winged seeds...like helicopters, and it got my mind going. I like to think of humans as really sophisticated seeds, and nothing more. Think about it. We can spread ourselves across any land...even before we had technology that made it easy to do so. We can adapt to just about any environment. And we can reproduce and have a pretty decent ability to keep that offspring alive.


Anyway, I think about this all the time, and I set it next to the debate over whether there is a god or not. I don't know, and I don't care. We are here. We have an energy within us...just as all living things do. We are amazing, thinking, doing seeds. Every living thing on this planet is amazing. Yes, even spiders, internet. We should enjoy everything the world has to offer, and help keep it there for future generations to enjoy as well.

So rather than spending your whole lives debating over whether or not it pays to be a good, devout person, why not just be genuinely good, because that is how it should be in a balanced, working world? Makes sense.


Just a little side note...though I am not religious, I neither put down those who are, nor choose to be a bad person. I do right, and I therefore I feel right. Also, I whisper thank you out loud, whenever something works out for me. It can't hurt. ;)

Okay, now figure one for the way Hellenic Polytheism is run.

Don't know what it is? I'll give you the basics.
Thirteen main gods, many minor ones, all of them are all-powerful, but they have one chosen leader and the others have jurisdiction over certain areas, and have a pact with eachother not to overstep these bounds.

Man was created to entertain them. Each person is given a unique set of rules, and while there is a general set of rules that can be USUALLY said to apply to everyone, there are always exceptions. The point of life is to discover your purpose, what role you're meant to play in the Play called life, and in finding that role, be it a ******** or a king, you'll be happy.

Rules for the afterlife:

If you believe in the gods and are a good person, you'll be rewarded more plentifully, given eternal happiness spent with all those fellow followers getting to pray, party, and quite occasionally feast with the gods themselves.

If you don't, yet you are still a good person, you'll be rewarded by going to the fields of asphodel. You will be in a large field with every other non-believer who was a good person, you will never go hungry but also never get to eat.

If you are a follower yet a bad person, you'll be punished HARSHLY dependent on your crime. Suicidal people have to relive their deaths over and over, ********* are killed in ways akin to the suffering brought about their crime repeatedly, thieves must go ***** in freezing temperatures and starve to death only to come back and starve again, etc.

If you aren't a follower, but a bad person, you'll never get to reach the underworld. You'll become a spirit in the fade between life and death, with all of the other cruel non-believers, and all of you will tear eachother apart.
