The universe is amazing and we don't need religion to make it better.
The vastness and diversity of space is enough for me, I love the universe. It's such an amazing and sometimes scary place to be. We don't need ancient religion to see that. When Christians look up at the night sky and say "God's creation is amazing", I look up and say "I want to see, and know more" Smile

Absolutely. Welcome to the forum.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Im a noob, thanks for posting that, it was awesome.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Well shit. You're welcome. Phil Hellenes. Watch his stuff, he's great.

Agreed. The Universe is so much more awesome and mysterious than any God man could imagine.

RE: The universe is amazing and we don't need religion to make it better.
The Universe isn't better, it's worse.

Religion makes the Universe less worse.

If the Universe had a want, it would want to kill you. Out of the vastness, only a pebble with a thin fragile skin of air, and half of that surface, supports life. Deviating anywhere else on that pebble or out of the pebble means death.

That's why religion talks about "love" and "being cared for" and "having a place". Because the universe is terrifying.

All that said, I'm for truth. End religion. But just be clear on what the Universe really is.

I don't get the terror thing. All I feel is awe, honestly. The universe is so amazing that, even if I were only able to consciously experience it for a brief moment before blinking out of existence, I'd consider that a monumental privilege.
