Does Pure Evil Exist?


The fact is, we live in a very dangerous world, and I can pull from a number of different arguments. My religion tells me that pure evil cannot exist, but personally, it has to. Using the elephant in the room, let's discuss genocide. These are perfect examples of pure evil because there was such a lack of humanity on such a large scale. In fact, totalling every genocide in the 20th century, from the Armenians to Rwanda, roughly 19 million people lost their lives. These were innocent people who d...

God is not real


I believe that god does not exist for many reasons. I will just be saying for now the simple reason of logic. Its not very hard to use your brain and when i use mine, i dont really see a spirit outside of the universe. The universe is everything in the world and it doesnt make sense if something is outside of it. Im not going to belive in something that i cant see or something that there is absolutely no evidence for. Also why did God only perform miracles back when nobody needed them, i mean he...

All religions need to unite, and understand what religion actually is


I believe that all religions should unite, and truly understand what religion is, as if believers are capable to hold wars due to their different religions, they are completely looking at the wrong end of what religion is. First of all I would like to clarify what I consider as a religion: A religion is a group of people that worship to do good, appreciate what they have, seek to help others, and acknowledge that there must be a creator of the universe....

The Cosmological Argument for God is a bad argument and people need to stop using it


I used to believe in God, and one of the last arguments that kept me in theism was the Cosmological Argument. There are a couple of versions of this argument, but the most popular one is the Kalam Cosmological Argument. It goes as follows: Premise 1: Whatever begins to exist has a cause. Premise 2: The Universe began to exist. Conclusion: Therefore, the Universe had a cause. The argument is valid, but I now realize it is not sound. The first premise can be rejected because we can find ev...
