instead of saying a deity wanted it that way.
We've explained why things grow, how humans interact, how to cure diseases, the building blocks of everything, why atoms react in certain ways, etc.
today what science do we have faith go against?
actually, Alex, you prove the point that religion is not based off an all knowing, all loving deity. It is based off of fear and ignorance. Ignorance comes in when Christians ignore the evidence that supports something because it conflicts with their beliefs. Fear comes in when you try to make others scared of going to Hell, so they join you to try to get out of that. They are scared of death, so they want to feel assured that they go to a nice place. That's the reason the concept of the afterlife was created. The reason religion was created was to explain things we didn't know then and reason that the deity wanted it that way. Name one explanation that we had a scientific reason for, however inadequate, that we now see a religious one as a better explanation. It's sad, of you think about it, that religion tries to teach us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.
it's so sad that so many people get hell, after not basing their life off God on earth.
its so sad so many people base their entire lives off their invisible friend.
This is so sad how so many people are athiest
lol finally i found someone else who thinks this. i thought i was the only one
Anything's possible. But I'm more interested in what's plausible, probable or true.
no one knows what is possible and what isn't, so it's sort of a redundant statement.
