Ones with large amounts of worshipers alive today.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

Why? You seem to assume that the existence of god/gods necessitates religion. Isn't it possible that the two could be unconnected?

And what if there were a god/gods, but the humans coming up with religions just haven't come across it yet?


I'm not assuming. I'm asking because i'm not sure about anything really.
I'm not even a person who has read the bible as of yet so i don't know much on the topics. I came to this site out of pure wanting to relate to people and talk but be open to all possibility's as of the moment. I'm not sure what the word Necssitates mean or what you're getting at when you said what you did do you mind explaining?
I'm not to good on bigger words but i try Smile

RE: Would you claim a god doesn't exist for sure?
I wouldn't claim to KNOW for sure that gods don't exist. Likewise I wouldn't claim to know for sure that leprechauns don't exist. However, I'm not prepared to live my life by leprechaun rules of morality/sexuality or advocate to have a leprechaun-based theory of origins taught in public school based on my fear of how they might react to my disbelief if they DO exist.

RE: Would you claim a god doesn't exist for sure?
When you say other sites what do you mean? Do you mean atheistic themed forums, or other types of random forums/reddity like message boards?

In polls here frequently the number of people who are agnostic atheist/weak atheist of the position not claiming God doesn't exist, is vastly a majority of the members here. I always thought it was that this forum under Seth's podcast/video fame was more of a skeptical approach which is why that number is what triumphs in this community.

Not really, Drinking Beverage If we are reading something wrong it could be that he's a twisted being. Either way i wouldn't worship it.
I liked that post though <3 i honestly don't know i haven't read the bible i really should but at Christmas i don't have the cash to grab some books upon it.
So far i'd agree as of the moment that it sounds nutty, and not real.

Other sites as in other social networking sites that hold forms but are very random and can and do talk about almost anything and everything.

OK, time for some Bible Study. Evil_monster

Read Genesis 1, 2 and 3.
  • How many different writing styles did you spot?
  • In the story of The Fall, who tells the truth about The Tree of Knowledge
  • Who lies about it?
  • What reason does God give for expelling Adam and Eve from Eden?
Enjoy!

If you ask nicely, some of the resident experts might direct you to some free, online resources of that nature.

Honestly, I've never read the Bible either. I made a couple of stabs at it but never managed to get more than a few books in. It's just so unutterably boring. It doesn't just read like fiction, it reads like bad, mistranslated fiction written by a dozen different writers and no editor.

For me it depends entirely on the leprechaun Big Grin
