  • Unless there is substantial proof, I will not.

  • I just voted to follow up with the comments.

  • No credible proof of an existence of any deity of that kind or proportion. Bible is supposedly written by god himself but is filled with horrific events we would frown upon today. & try to make it all up using the new testament as an excuse to look the other way from the old testament's many contradictions.

  • No proof

triangle.128k says2015-07-14T22:30:09.5846672-05:00
No flame war yet? Come on..
reece says2015-07-14T22:34:50.1353442-05:00
@triangle.128k May i?
triangle.128k says2015-07-14T22:38:42.5270545-05:00
May you what?
reece says2015-07-14T22:40:26.2663895-05:00
Start the flame war.
triangle.128k says2015-07-14T22:42:18.2301421-05:00
Okay, go ahead
triangle.128k says2015-07-14T22:42:47.0000956-05:00
Wait, I need to get my bag of popcorn first.
reece says2015-07-14T22:45:48.4823240-05:00
Religious faith is for the people that aren't able to admit their ignorant. Learn what nature is telling you instead of imposing your beliefs on nature.
Varrack says2015-07-14T22:46:50.0083296-05:00
There are usually not flame wars if you tell "flamebait" at the beginning of a poll.
triangle.128k says2015-07-14T22:48:50.2211590-05:00
Thanks, i'll keep that in mind.

@reece: ha ha I laugh in the face of your challenge. "imposing your beliefs on nature" who is going around shouting at flowers?
reece says2015-07-15T00:09:49.4332458-05:00
@russian_metaphor_man A person that is mentally unstable which believes in the end times, talking snakes, unicorns, giants, resurrection, sorcerers, etc. But anyway I meant for a person to conform natural phenomena into what they want to believe, e.g. their religious doctrine.
reece says2015-07-15T00:17:43.1420663-05:00
@applestoapples For what god(s)?

"Religious faith is for the people that aren't able to admit their ignorant. Learn what nature is telling you instead of imposing your beliefs on nature." How are you not ignorant?
reece says2015-07-15T00:24:48.6643787-05:00
@ben671176 I didn't say i wasn't ignorant, we're all ignorant to some degree. I can admit when i'm ignorant though. Ignorance isn't a bad thing. You can learn from acknowledging it.
russian_metaphor_man says2015-07-15T00:42:15.7329848-05:00
The question is do I believe in god not do I believe in "end times, talking snakes, unicorns, giants, resurrection, sorcerers, etc"
reece says2015-07-15T00:43:27.4537286-05:00
@russian_metaphor_man I was just giving an example of a mental person shouting at flowers.
russian_metaphor_man says2015-07-15T00:44:49.5195897-05:00
I believe in god which is the question but I am not this
reece says2015-07-15T00:45:35.7894863-05:00
Maybe in their unstable state a sorcerer put a spell on the flowers. Ridiculous beliefs lead to ridiculous actions.
reece says2015-07-15T00:46:33.5833094-05:00
@russian_metaphor_man What god do you believe.
russian_metaphor_man says2015-07-15T00:51:50.4708041-05:00
I was raised russian orthodox, but is this still what I follow? Hmm perhaps not, I adhere to no dogma in my view god is everyones god not christians or muslims or jains. A prime mover an initial cause. But I welcome judgment
reece says2015-07-15T00:52:09.1594843-05:00
@russian_metaphor_man I didn't say you were. You brought up the person shouting at the flowers. Imposing your beliefs onto something doesn't necessarily mean to shout at that something. I've already told you what i meant.
russian_metaphor_man says2015-07-15T00:53:26.0038476-05:00
It was a metaphor from the motherland
reece says2015-07-15T00:55:19.8838617-05:00
@russian_metaphor_man So you have a personal god? What did that metaphor represent?
russian_metaphor_man says2015-07-15T01:00:29.1007878-05:00
Yes this is still a god is it not? From my understanding imposing your will on the weak. Many russians were raised under oppression my grandfather was imprisoned during stalin era for his religion in russian orthodox from my father's stories he was lucky to escape with his life.
reece says2015-07-15T01:03:26.0658805-05:00
@russian_metaphor_man Both religious and nonreligious impose their power and beliefs on the weak. Guess what? We're all human.
reece says2015-07-15T01:04:45.7139254-05:00
They both can also help the weak.
russian_metaphor_man says2015-07-15T01:10:59.2709122-05:00
Wise words, though I see not much compassion in dogma in my view it helps no one whether that be religious dogma or stalinism type dogma
reece says2015-07-15T01:16:24.2253776-05:00
@russian_metaphor_man some that are religious just have another incentive when helping people, and that thing is to get up into heaven. Unlike all atheists that genuinely care when they help.
mark.mark says2015-07-15T21:37:11.8351205-05:00
@reece You can't say for sure that all atheist genuinely care when they help. Some do it get recognition from others. I have witnessed an atheist help someone not because he cared but rather he was trying to impress a girl. He wouldn't have helped if she was not there.
reece says2015-07-16T04:34:01.8903223-05:00
@mark.Mark Yeah, i know. I meant to put it differently.
