If his work is done, then I suppose we no longer need deal with him.

I personally don't believe in god because the idea of all human suffering being
chalked up to a reality show for some omnipotent being unsettles me.

I will admit I believe in something. Relationships and nature. What's behind
nature? Random chance (and mutations) performed to such a constant degree
as to create a structure, patterns, success stories.
Nothing I can pray too, nothing I can thank.

I'm glad for nature. But thankful? Why? It's not a gift, it's reality, just like
anything and everything else. I enjoy nature, but thanking it solves nothing.
It's not listening. It has it's own plans, constantly changing, constantly random yet organized.

I believe humanity and nature are one. I believe the interest of all is what
makes nature work. While it has mutations and struggles here and there,
it continues on vibrantly as a full system.


I think you put that very well.

We are the only organism that can contemplate its own death. I'm not talking about survival instinct, but rather our capacity to envision our own death, and to speculate on what comes after it.

Ultimately, our own consciousness and our own conceit makes us conclude that we can't die, that we simply pass on to another plane of existence. It is from that that we get the notion of God, and in particular a loving God who cares about what we do, and a God who presides over heaven. It is also from that that we get the willingness to believe in the paranormal and ghosts.

The thought that there is a power greater than us is a comfort, at least in the selfish sense of investing that power with the ability to give us everlasting life.

Ultimately, those who truly believe in a caring God are to be envied. They have laid to rest the notion of death, and the fear of death. Sometimes I wish I were one of them. I have not yet confronted my own mortality, but I have lost dearly loved ones. For their sake, as well as my own, it would be nice to believe that death is not an ending but a transition.

I think you responded very well here.

But, alas, I must "spread the love" before I can rep you again. :wink:

What if God smoked cannabis
Hit the bong like some of us
Drove a tie-dyed micro-bus

Yet you exhibit a significant faith in the European Union.

Dare I say you would seem to be the very first person I would consider to be a European Union nationalist.

Not only is this a mega-necro post, but it also makes little sense.

Yes, since he started. I'm also quite baffled as to why this continues....

Agreed. ESL or not.

This is not the only questionable member around here IMO.
