Do you believe in God?

I'm always particularly impressed by the number of "good works" done around the world in the name of God.....Holy wars for example are very much in vogue at the moment

 

..... and that he never needs to intervene, for example to help alleviate the suffering of the 20,000+ children who die of disease every day.

 

I've got a thing or two I'd like to say to him.........(Is it just me....or has anyone else got thunder and lightning of biblical proportions at the moment??)

Zeus of course :laugh:

 

My uncle once had a pet Capuchin named Zeus... I hope a real Zeus can do more than peal bananas and p**s on himself!

 

Seriously though, I was raised catholic, then branched out into spiritualism a bit as a teen but later realised religion is all a bit sad and silly. Suppose I'm a humanist or something like that now.

It would be lovely to think that a being is looking out for me and guides my path, but I just don't believe it.

 

Far too much suffering in the world for there to be a God, not to mention a God cannot be all loving, all powerful and ever present with such horrors in the world.

 

I am an atheist, but I'd love to be proved wrong. I guess if anything, I believe in Mother Nature.

No. And even if a God does exist, he/she's a nasty, vindictive, spiteful piece of work.

most major deities have a mean streak ....

That's why I don't Walk Like an Egyptian, then?

what no sand dance :0...

I used to be a firm believer when I was younger right up into my last teens but my skeptical mind diverted me from the path of the righteous  :D

 

Saying that I do believe in a lot of the Morales and ethics that were taught in the christian faith.

 

Only time I still pray is when we have a marginal snow event and I am awaiting the 12z updates!   :rofl:  :hi:

Not to mention evilly narcissistic.The Bible God often asked people to sacrifice their own children for him!

A couple of quotes from..............................well you know where

 

“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.â€

 

And

 

“There is something infantile in the presumption that somebody else has a responsibility to give your life meaning and point… The truly adult view, by contrast, is that our life is as meaningful, as full and as wonderful as we choose to make it.â€

 

So you know where I'm coming from.

I just cannot get my head around us simply not existing once we are dead. Maybe that's an afterlife issue and not a God one though.

Yes a libertarian control freak, that's a new one.

He could say I let 100,000 more live every day who would have died from disease etc 100 years ago
