this dumb a.ss.
would u believe in the scientific theories laid out by math and science saying god does not exst if u were born in ancient india?
See that's the thing about science. New theories and discoveries are found often as we progress. With religion. It's been already written and can only be translated. Very loosely at that. Of course there have been theories that have been proved to be false and new theories arise. Tell me.... If you were born in the middle of the jungle with instinctual knowledge, (or lack thereof) you would be able to survive, correct? You don't need science or a "religion" to teach you about morals and how to live and raise your family. When you die then what? Do you go to hell because you didn't believe in god? No, you didn't even know he/she/it existed. My problem isn't with god or people who believe in it. It's the institutions that were created in order to keep people in fear. Romans believed that with fear you could control people, and hence Catholicism was born. You do know that religion use churches, temples, synagogues, and all these other buildings to collect money. Religion is a business just like anything else.
Anyway, I'm not knocking on those who believe in god. There are 2 different types of agnostic. Weak and strong. I'm weak because I don't know whether proof exists of either. Strong agnostic are damn near atheists. They believe no proof will ever exist! But if that's the case, then you must believe "god" intentionally made it that way for us to never discover. Since we have the capacity to study the environment around us, we have also then, have the ability to discover whether or not there is a god. This s**t gets crazy though.
Oh, and to the dude saying we couldn't appear out of nothing and how the math had to be precise. Think about it... Earth has been here billions of years! Time is man-made. The odds it would take for everything to happen are astronomical I agree, but any number (no matter how large) can be reached with infinite time given. So, it's guaranteed to happen. Have any of you heard of the primordial soup? All the gasses, ions, etc. would have made it possible for life to have eventually have formed. It's been tested in labs, but the numbers are greater than that of the age of the Earth and universe itself. Can't explain that either but... Knowledge is a motherf**ker. Scary thing....
Anyway, believe or not. It's cool. Not here to judge either, just saying.
