God is the necessary uncreated First Cause from which all else flows. That's what makes Him, you know, God.

A God who requires a creator is no God at all.

My stand is I don't care if you're religious or not as long as you don't act like a prick towards me or anyone else we can be cool. Cause in the end it might turn out that we're both wrong and we wasted our lives being a bunch of stupid monkeys flinging shit at each other over something we cant prove.

In short, live and let live.

Thats what I want to get past, peoples perception of the religious imbeciles that do not know two cents about their faith.

Hell, I'm not even Muslim, and I've probably read more of the Qu'ran than 99.9% of the female population in Afghanistan.

These heretical cultic muslims like Al-Queda, these Bible thumping Christians and Catholics, these stubborn Jews in Israel, they don't understand the bigger picture.

Is something that exists because children are indoctrinated with it. The things that "god" does in the bible are pretty sick, it doesn't sound like a god, but a psycho path.

I truly think that religion spawned from man's ignorance of the world around him so he created stories/ideologies to make the masses feel safe.

However, seeing that religion has steered countless people towards a righteous path in life it can't be all bad.

Punishing those who don't do as "he" commands. Sending someone to burn in hell that violates the rules. That is a psycho path.

You can just tell religeon is bs if you think logically about it. On top of that, the people who defend it get angry when you speak against it. They are afraid to speak against their "god". That's not faith, it's fear.

Of course it is. It's scary and depressing to think at times that this world is all there is. Religion has on the flip side ruined peoples lives, caused war, and been used as an excuse for hideous crimes.

The reason religion bothers me is because it can be a very dangerous tool to manipulate people. When you start living your life without asking questions, and letting someone else do your thinking, that is dangerous.

We're talking about a perfect omnipotent being, not a human.

Thats why people have mixed views of God, because they picture him as a human when hes not.

Yes, humans shall short of the perfection. You should probably read about his abounding grace too, none of us really don't even deserve to exist.

I've had plenty, I was asking so I could understand his point of view. There are various opinions of "sick". Some people think God is sick mainly because he sends people to hell. Some people think God is sick specifically because he doesn't like gays. Some people think God is sick because he burned towns and saved Lot.

Just wanted to make sure where he was coming from.

You're doing it yourself. Giving gender to this mythical being you speak of.

You came into this world knowing nothing about god or the concept. The people before you came into this world the same way. No one on this earth knows anything for certain.

You should watch some videos of Jacque Fresco. He talks about religeon and how dangerous it is.

I'm aware of that. It talks about in the Bible, how the world has forgotten their God.

And yes religion is dangerous, but God is not bound by religion. There is a difference between religion and relationship.

There was an actual man who claimed to be God, and His power is evident today through His gifts and His healing. That is not a myth. What I see with my eyes is not a myth, and through sight, my beliefs are justified.
