    It is frankly irrelevant if a god exists or not. What matters is what we do for ourselves as humans.

    Oh. I guess I'm a degenerate criminal, then.
    Was this up for debate to begin with? :holmes:

    I'll give you this one. Inculcating a good ability to spell is something that the British education system is embarrassingly incompetent at.
    ... I wasn't expecting you accept the excuse. What a pleasant surprise. :awesome:

    It all makes sense now. I'm awful at spelling, as I'm sure you're aware. :sad: Thank you for giving me an excuse for all future spelling mistakes. :yep:

    No, because I don't get holiday pay. :sad: If I stop working, FrenchFries stops paying me.
    I hadn't imagined Frenchie would be such a harsh employer. :console:

    Hmm, sexual favours, firstborn, becoming an atheist, spelling 'atheist' correctly... You're close. :holmes:
    Close?

    What more can you want?

    I'm running out of leverage here. :sad:

    I'm nothing if not pleasant. :awesome:

    Your spelling is mostly fine, though. Most of your mistakes are typos, not mis-spellings that you genuinely didn't know were wrong. Although this isn't an excuse for future mistakes. :shakecane:

    I dunno. I'll think about it and fax you the details.

    I think the vast majority of theists agree that life was made perfect from the beginning.

    I concur. :yep:

    And I was baptised Catholic, so a Christian God. :yep: I thought there was a comfort in faith -- being able to have faith that someone was always there looking out for you, that death wasn't the end, that kind of stuff.

    Any particular reason you're curious?

    I find you pleasant enough company, I will admit. I'm having complimentary moment, what can I say.

    But of course. Wouldn't want you getting too soft on us, now. :rolleyes:

    She sometimes :whip:s me, too. :cry:
    Is this part of your punishment or your pay packet? :beard:

    I dunno. I'll think about it and fax you the details.
    While I hesitate to make accusations, I'd swear you're starting to enjoy this.

    But yes, I shall wait in dread at my fax machine. I was not aware I was in possession of a fax machine, but you learn new things everyday, I suppose. :awesome:

    I find that people look for certain things within certain religions. For the Abrahamic ones (as you said), people tend to look for a purpose to live for or take comfort in the fact that they aren't alone or that death isn't the end. "God's got my back" sorta thing.

    For the Vedic ones, people tend to be more interested in looking for a way to live their lives. They want to be told the "best" way to go about their life, without having to think too much for themselves. Probably to take comfort in knowing they're set on the "right" path or whatever. I mean if God told them to live this way, it must be the right path, right?

    I don't think either is better then the other, it's just interesting to notice the difference and observe how the different schools of thought have shaped their respective cultures in their own ways.

    I also just like hearing about other people's experiences as well.

    Hello, this question is open to everyone and basically wondering people's views if they believe in a God/creator or of different faith or agnostic or atheist etc and also why you believe in what you believe in! This for RS views which will be most helpful. Thank you
    I'm a Christian and I do believe in God. The reason I believe in God is primarily because my spirit resonates with His word.

    I feel within my being I met with God and know God.

    I like God. I like His love for me and His unending love for mankind.

    I like to hear how people have met with God for the first time, having a realisation of who he is, when the blinkers came off.

    I agree with God.

    I enjoy hearing people preaching, I find it incredible how a person can take a chapter of the bible and expound on it in such a relevant way for my life. It goes deep into my soul.

    I see how everything makes sense with God and how history brings us up to this moment in time.

    I cannot imagine living without God in my life.

    Honestly i don't know. My experience so far of life is that it's a competition and all about being opportunistic and taking advantage of things for your own benefit. You have to be selfish but in a good way.

    I believe in God. I also believe that he came to Earth as a human, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins so that anyone who has faith in in Him will be forgiven of their sins.

    no I view God as a superstition there is no evidence for him/her. It is far more likely that everything (life) gradually adapted to earth rather than was made perfect to begin with.
    There is no evidence of many things in this world yet we still believe in them. It's called faith.

    Religion is built around belief and faith. Treating it with pure logic and reason is ignorant and lazy. Religion gives answers for things that science has no explanation for.

    Nah, I see no reason to believe that a god exists. All of the arguments for a god's existence (that I've seen) are just arguments that appeal to ignorance and emotion, and the Abrahamic religions' explanation for why we're here is like something you'd find in a bad young-adult sci-fi novel.

    nope - it is a personified representation of human ignorance, manifesting itself via the culture that a society upholds.
    If you don't agree simply say so. I don't see why you feel you must attempt drag down my beliefs in order to uphold yours..
