Hey izettl I have a religious article you might like to read. Does NOT believing in God make you a better person? I happen to believe this dicussion is fairly unique because we are not arguing Bible versus or God Himself, at least I wasn't trying to, but it turned out somewhat that way. "God" or believing shows up in brain scans just as love does. G. Diane Nelson Trotter from Fontana on January 14, 2013: I think it takes a whole lot of faith in Darwin to believe evolution. This tastes like a straw man argument. Of course you need to want to and that's the hurdle I am trying to explain. Actually, you'll be surprised to learn that I've experienced what many would describe as "God" or "a presence". Belief and faith rely on us not knowing the answer, but belief must come before God, not the other way around. God puts all your (Atheists) equations out of whack so exclude him entirely from the equation and things start to make sense. Great piece of work, a pleasure to read, and one I'll keep following just to see where the comments continue to lead. Legitimate religious thinking is about non-falsifiable propositions. God created the sun, yes, and if you eat the right foods God created, your skin will not absorb the rays as much. "Buddhism is not atheistic as the term is ordinarily understood. Yes I am happy without religion too and I once thought I had to give up God in order to escape church but I learned that I could keep God and my spirituality and not have to constrain myself to any particular religion. Cari Jean and ReuVera~ I'll address you together because you both had a similar statement about God being personal, no Bible, church, or other person can explain it to you. But don't tell people who live in a different way (Buddhist or atheists) that they are only lost children of YOUR God. Jahwe or Siva mean something for many people because they are NOT private. It helps me find my clear middle grounds. But he was another example, as your story shares the conflict of logic, science, intelligence versus belief. They’ve both been baptised as Catholics and, while the rest of the family isn’t super-religious, there is a reasonable amount of god-bothering going on. The answer is God, the almighty, the omnipresent, the omnipotent. You mention how the variable that changes many scientific equations isn't necessarily something we have the answer for, or can perceive. "The moral of the story is that omnipotence does not necessarily imply wisdom, or even good intentions." It's only YOUR perception and attitude. THanks for stopping by! Nothing that makes people better should be disputed. Thanks for your comment. Thanks again for sharing your heart with us. Now, I ask you: since feelings alone cannot prove the existence of anything except God, how do you know that God is really there, and not just an illusion produced by certain feelings? Very few scientists worth their salt think that they can disprove the existence of a deity. A combination of unanswered questions and no physical proof make it impossible for Atheists to believe in God. think before you speak jeez. Evolutionary biologists identify evolution as either fact or theory and occasionally as both or neither. Laura Izett-Irwin (author) from The Great Northwest on July 12, 2011: Thank you Thought-Provoking. I rated this hub up up up. Renewal, heaven, and/or another life. It was a tough one to wrap my head around. If man created disease then we too are gods because we created life out of nothing. The moon also does that. I completely agree that the world/universe is full of unknown variables, and it is entirely possible one such explanation is god. I have my own interpretation of God, not that He is the only for me. One more thought on pain and suffering; Buddhists, for example, believe suffering is just another state of being.To say there is suffering versus well being, you have just labeled it. We can't see it, we have infinite questions about it, and it's highly subjective. To which you wrote your first comment stating "Buddhist (if they understand Buddha teachings) are atheists. I do agree that the other 90% of our brain will reveal God but I don't see God as most do. Give them both sides of the debate, and let them figure it out for themselves. Along the way to the park, I noticed that someone was writing a message in the sky, using a plane and a smoke pack. In fact happiness would have a totally different definition, we would have no bad orsuffering to compare it to. secularist10~ yes I have something better than science and rather than explaining it in my drawn out words, another commenter above said it best "With our limited "intelligence",I think it would be more productive if we try to comprehend "God" with our feelings instead.". I know God and keep my skepticism on religion intact. If you have a personal relationship with God then the "vastness" goes away. I don't mind the rough ones, but I realized through this fiasco that I am trying to point out what can only be seen and filled by those who want to believe- as you say in your comment and Pascal's quote. In essence, their lack of belief is hanging on by a thread- that's not very reliable is it?). and it was about the existance of God. Probably because you have "experiences" with the one you love. Skeptics could say: Assuming that there is an omnipotent being that we call God, how do we know that he's not like Trellayne?
