    God is my copilot and I fly solo. Tell ya anything?


    I believe in God : the creation of humans, plants, animals, stars, mountains, lakes, oxygen, diversity, earth and the sun, the marvel of giving birth... humans and animals, how a small seed germinates and turns into a tree, human speech, animals that can communicate with sounds that are distinct from one to another, bodies that heel themselves, colors, etc.,etc, me there had to be a designer. I don't believe in the big bang theory or everything came from nothing.

    I don't believe in God : natural sin, death, diseases, war, famine, poverty, rape, torture, starvation, earthquakes, drought, mental illness, suicide, cancer, going / being born blind, murder, addictions....etc. etc... why does a loving God allow any of these. If God was so upset with such a tiny matter ( supposedly Adam and Eve ate from a tree ) why doesn't it bother him even more on what really resulted from this sin?

    Guess what.... Today U.S Edition Newsweek Jan. 26, 2018.

    New research says we're not born believers after all. Is it intuition that cause people to believe in Gods? Or Logic? According to researchers at Oxford, the answer is neither. Now new research shows the biggest factor in determining a person's religiosity isn't intuition but culture. SOOO which is the right GOD to worship...The game show to "Tell the Truth", I would love to see the many Gods today on the program, Hell Hinduism have 33 million Gods......

    Since you’ve been here do you believe in God?

    No I've been here for more than 10 years, my position hasn't changed in that time.

    As its known god belief can be a very dangerous and harmful thing to humanity , for example there has been thousands of devout JWS who've let themselves die out of refusing blood transfusions and organ transplants.

    There has been millions of families which have been broken apart and decimated because certain members of their families stopped believing in the JWS faith or established belief system around Yahweh the ancient Hebrew god..

    Of course all taken under the banner of " God has chosen us "

    God for most men equates to power and as its known power corrupts as absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    nope--never did--one of the reasons i quit the cult in 1971.

  • EverApostate

    For me, people who invented cures for Malaria, Typhoid, Cholera, TB , Polio, Leprosy and for all those many tragic diseases and who invented antibiotic are GODS.

    And people who serve humanity without any selfish reasons are Gods. Yes I believe in them.

    Minimus - Are you asking whether we believe in the god of Christian theism or in any nebulous notion of a 'supernatural' entity?

    The difference is vast even though believers often pretend otherwise.

  • DesirousOfChange

    Cofty has taught me to look for evidence before I believe anything.

    What evidence do you have?
