Please take pity on me someone and help.
I was going to say that I suffer from Aspergers Syndrome but actually, I've come to rather enjoy it.
No, seriously, I really do have Aspergers which is why my posts may seem a little odd to some of you. OK, they may seem bloody odd to most of you.
My world exists in a binary frame. Things ARE or they ARE NOT.
I know that in the "real world" things MIGHT BE or MIGHT NOT BE as well as ARE and ARE NOT. I can't cope with the MIGHT BE or MIGHT NOT BE concept too well. I've just have to remember that this is that way of the real world and accept and get on with it.
In my world there is proof for, in which case, I believe, or there is proof against, in which case, I don't believe. I believe in where the proof takes me.
Sometimes, there is proof predominantly on one side of the argument. In which case, that's the side I go with.
I've never yet seen an argument equally balanced so I can't say what I'd do - blow a fuse probably - which would really hurt my brain.
I also don't get hung up with that emotional crap that you humans are burdened, or blessed, with, depending upon your point of view. That makes my life much easier, I believe.
Anyways - what about god and jesus and the bible yada, yada?
My common sense tells me that god and jesus don't/didn't exist.
Logic tells me that god and jesus don't/didn't exist.
There is some historical evidence that god/jesus exist/existed but there's far more that suggests that they didn't/don't.
On that basis, I am forced to reject the hypothesis that jesus and god exist/existed.
In all honesty, no matter how I look at the hypothesis, I cannot come up with a convincing case that god/jesus exists. Moreover, I have listened to argument after argument from religtards and they have failed to convince. In fact, some were having difficulty convincing themselves at times.
So, the question is:
Given how obvious it is to me that jesus/god don't exist, how come so many people think they do?
The big difference between them and me is that I'm not emotional. People who meet me have suggested that maybe I'd be happier living with the Borg (and maybe they're right). So, I guess that the question has to be: Is this belief in god/jesus an emotional response to the human condition or am I way off base here?
Thanks in advance for any responses that you guys care to make.
