    What do YOU believe in?


    OK... this thread could get really messy really fast as I've seen how people get about their beliefs.

    THIS THREAD IS NOT FOR BACK AND FORTH DISCUSSION.

    NO QUOTING AND REPLYING TO POSTS.

    That's not what I'm looking for.

    If you agree with someone, Rep them out. If you don't, simply post YOUR belief.

    I'm not looking for an argument.

    I'm simply looking for good posts, persuasive, interesting, insightful, and meaningful reads about what people genuinely believe in about our world, how it functions, and what or "who" is responsible for this mess of life.

    there are two opposing forces; life and entropy. Life is a force that turns disorder into order... nucleic acids organize into RNA, from genetic material springs life, single-celled organisms -> multicelled organisms, evolution etc. Life propagates, arranging matter in an organized and stable fashion; lifeforms die, everything is recycled... Entropy is an opposing force that seeks stability in a different way... There is an equilibrium between the two.

    All matter simply cycles through different forms, energy is mostly constant, although of course the two are interchangeable. In the long run I think the interconversion favors energy... stars burn out, high atomic # elements decay, etc. In the end, all matter is recycled through a "big bang." If gravity pulls matter together, then given enough time, all matter in the universe will collect at one point, hence cyclical "big bangs" that completely recycle all energy and matter back to the starting point.

    Higher powers, the thousand religions, and thousands of Gods, were all made up by stupid people too stupid to understand their world.

    I believe there is no god, never was, and never will be.

    God was created by those desiring power. Not to quote Marx, which could create another debate all together, but Religion is the opiate of the masses. It creates power for people, a great deal of money, excuse for war and conflict, and forced social norms/morality.

    Everything in the world is a simple scientific process. You are a composition of different atoms. You thoughts are simply simply the results of chemical/electrical signals. When you die, your body decomposes and thats that. Nowhere to go from that no matter how fairy tale it may seem to say the opposite.

    A world without religion would be a much more peaceful world.

    It's whatever you've got to tell yourself to fall asleep at the end of the day. I believe in one thing, you believe in another. Whether I'm right or you're right, we'll never truly know.

    This is all a dream. A personal movie where you are the director. Soon enough, the movie in which you choose to create will be over. Enjoy the show.

    To me, the most mysterious aspect of life, is death.

    Here is some excerpts from a book I am writing that will give a little insight about my beliefs about death:

    The universe has the ability to create a phsyical body, yet your mind has the ability to create your personality, and understanding of the world--your mind is essentially the one behind life creation for you as you understand it.

    Your mind is the part of you that fears death. The body willingly dies a natural death on its own but it is your fearful mind that selfishly wants to live forever.

    Look at birth to understand death a little. We are born into this world with a mind that cannot reason and predict events using forthought. A mind of no peronality. In a very short amount of time we begin to create artiqulate and orderly logical reasonable thoughts which give birth to life. For if I say "tell me what life was like when you were 8 months old" You will have no idea because there wasn't an understanding of life. Your physical body was alive and thriving, but "you" were not alive.

    We are born in with a fertile mind and like the clouds that water earth, our thoughts water our mind giving birth to personality. So understand the part of you that is dying is your minds creations. The constituents that make you, like your personality, outlook on life, desires, and reasoning were born into the world pretty much dead. You weren’t born into life, you are born out of life.

    I believe we are way too egocentric about our own existence. People who deny the idea of life in other places are totally clueless to me. Of all the planets out there, life only evolved on this rickety rock? So to say there is one God, and he is absolute, dumbfounds me. I always pose a question to those who ask me about God, and who push to hard to make me see the light...well, their light. I ask them if they believe God is fallible, and of course they say "no, hes God". I then ask them if God could create a rock so large that even he himself could not lift it. Either way they answer, they prove their God to be fallible and not "all powerful". If they say "Yes, he can make anything", then he has made a rock he cannot lift, and therefore, he is flawed as there is a rock even God cannot move. If they say "No, God can move mountain and river", then I point out the fact that God is not almighty, as he cannot make a rock so large it cannot be moved by any being or deity. It pisses lots of folks off, but I live near a bible college and I get stopped far to often by those who are looking to "educate" me.

    I cannot even do this thread -.-

    The flamthrowers would come out, as well as everything else in the arsenal. Done in very poor taste IMO

    Liberals do suck too though. As an American quotes from our founding fathers explain it all..

    Plain and simple facts...

    Washington-

    Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor--and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

    Ben Franklin

    I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?

    Jefferson

    "Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice can not sleep forever: that considering numbers, nature and natural means only, a revolution of the wheel of fortune, an exchange of situation is among possible events: that it may become probable by supernatural interference!

    John Adams

    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.


    Ronald Reagan-

    "America needs God more than God needs America. If we ever forget we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."

    Psalm 33:12, Holy Bible

    "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord"



    America will fall because of the wickedness in peoples hearts, and they have turned their backs on God. As God has been pushed out, AMerica has slipped. There will be no cures for many diseases, and more powerful ones are already on their way to keep man humble.

    This nation, unless it turns back now, will crumble, be destroyed, and with chaos to equally match its filth.

    There is no recovery from what America is suffering, its only going to get worse. With less and less people praying for Gods hand on this nation, his spirit will not inhabit a place desolate and filled with corruption, filth, and rampant sin and blasphemy.

    The people have chosen to rebuke God, and as result of their actions this nation has been falling, and will continue to. The pride and weakness of mens hearts have blinded them to his Glory.

    Just the other day I got a man to give up evolution and accept creation, because what is is what is my friends. Praise God that the gates have not closed yet.

    Wow. There's a whole lotta believin going on in here! I'll make a short list of my highest stuffs, but some are beliefs and some are "I KNOW's".

    -I believe in the power of humanity. We can create and destroy, survive and die, kill and be killed. We have the ability to do good as well as evil. We have the will to press on or the apathy of laziness.
    -I know that human beings are inherently dumb. We weren't always this way, but it happened. Some of us fight against that trend, but most go to jail for murder. Law is stupid.

    -I believe in creation, not creationism. I believe that there is no higher power, but I'm always open to be proven wrong. I believe in evolution in every form; I see it happening every day.
    -I know that change is both good and bad, depending which side of the change you stand. I know that when one becomes better, another becomes worse. I know that the delicate balance of life is never in balance nor is it ever delicate. I know that the Earth provides, and humans are the only living creatures to make trash.

    -I believe in the power of the spoken word, and I know the power of the spoken word. Words can make one weep, smile, go insane, fall in love or fall into loathing. Words are the most powerful asset that we have, yet far too many of them are wasted. This I know.
    -I know love exists, and it isn't limited to human beings. It can't possibly be. Similarly, I know that hate exists, but it is limited to humans beings.

    -I believe I can fly, but I know I can't afford a plane ticket.
    -I believe in fairies, but I know you'll never catch me in a gay bar.
    -I believe in Jesus, but I know his brother Miguel.
    -I believe in Santa Claus, but I know the tooth fairy doesn't adjust for inflation.
    -I believe that I am a good person, but I know that I could do better.
    -I believe we are here for a reason, but I know the reason isn't what you think it is.

    -I believe this thread has the potential to become epic, but I know that someone will abuse it and be a jerk.

    -I believe I am done for now. Scratch that, I know it.

    I believe in karma
    I believe in a better place when we die
    I believe you get what you give
    I believe bad things do happen to good people...

    I believe that people can change if they work hard and want to....
    I believe my nephews will grow to be decent young men

    Lastly I believe that although human beings are self centered for the most part, on a rare occassion you find someone who isen't, and that person is taken for granted....

    I don't believe in any sort of religion or faith, yet somehow I do believe in Karma. Perhaps that makes me a hypocrite, or maybe not. I've just seen too many examples of karma in action to think otherwise.

    I am one of those "stupid" people who believe in God.

    I also believe that it is the height of ignorance and arrogance to believe that we have even a basic understanding of our universe and how life was created. Just remember that before microscopes we lived in a completely different world than we do now.

    We, the human race are completely incapable of wrapping our minds around anything beyond what we can interact with our known senses. If we cannot interract with it with our senses then it simply does not exist in our feeble minds.

    We are limited by our senses and it is a joke to believe that everything in this universe has to "fit" our make up to exist. Man will be humbled one day

    Wow, this is fun............nice idea Chocolate!!

    From an atheists standpoint, I KNOW that religion, on the whole, is a good thing. It is a believe system that gives faith to many, not just in a higher power, but in themselves in return. Those who have faith and follow the teachings of their religion tend to do what they believe is right. Faith gives people hope even in the most desperate times, and anything that does that can NOT be bad. Religion, which is different than faith, is an organization in which the faithful can come together with their peers and (ideally) strive to help eachother do better.

    It's when religions conflict and there is a lack of faith that I detest.
