Read Is God an Accident
I just think people don’t want there to be a God so they can do whatever they feel like and not have to deal with the consequences.
How many Christians do you know who act like they care about the consequences? I know they’re out there, but you can’t make that generalization about atheists. The average atheist I know would be slower to kill someone than the average Christian (or religious person period, excepting Buddhism).
Even Buddhists have their moments, Silthilar. And how would you define ‘religious person’ so that it could cover both say, Mother Theresa and a suicide bomber?
I’m no Theist, but I would have to conclude that if this is all a product of just random chaos, then random chaos must be more brilliant than any intelligent being I’ve ever come across.
Perhaps it is. ;)
Yes, I sometimes wonder if the human brain may utilize randomness to learn and make its calculations… To me, if one natural system in the universe can be both intelligent and conscious, it seems to follow that probably all of them are. Maybe this “God” character that ancient religions speak so much about is really the self-engineering, collective mind of all things. An all-encompassing, intelligent creator doesn’t really contradict the concept of natural selection, when you get right down to it, after all.
Haha, that makes an interesting read!
If you are under the impression that evolution by natural selection is in any way "random," you don't know the first thing about this topic. The process by which all living things have always evolved and will continue to evolve is neither random nor guided by some mysterious tyrannical sky god; rather life adapts to meet changing conditions or it doesn't and ceases to exit. How is it that people can reap all the benefits of the basic tenants of scientific theories (see below) yet deem the basis for all life as we know it as "evil lotion?""""
Definition of theory as it relates to science:
A theory, in the scientific sense of the word, is an analytic structure designed to explain a set of empirical observations. A scientific theory does two things:
SCIENTIFIC THEORIES CREATIONISTS CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT:
THEORY of GRAVITY: without this one, how could you say that Jesus' ascention to heaven was miraculous?
ATOMIC THEORY: HOW COULD YOU BLOW THINGS UP WITH REALLY BIG BOMBS? Also, without this one, pretty much everything you see, touch, and sense in any way, including things much to small to obsever, would not exist- like the brains of creationists. Also, forget your TV, IPOD, oh yeah, and THE SUN. But hey, atomic theory is just a theory, right?
Theory of Plate Tectonics: Without this theory, Jesus could have walked all around the world and you could follow him without ever running into an ocean. What's more, everything on the surface of the earth would simply freeze as it is internal heat at the earth's core that not only rips continents apart and raises islands from the depths of volcanoes, but also keeps the earth's temperature stable.
CELL THEORY- the next time you're sick, why don't you tell your doctor she full of it when she tries to cure your brain cancer. I don't need that medicine or treatment doctor, CELL THEORY is just a theory, god will cure me.
If god will cure you, why the hell would he be such a dick and make you sick and suffer in the first place?? Why doesn't god love amputees? They never get healed.
