"I contend we are both atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."

Notice the more recent the religion, usually the more followers it has.

Not true.  Christianity is one of the oldest and a third of the world follow it.

Yea it was actually like way before north america was discovered and it was used in I think the UK first

That would be true if 13% of the worlds Christians were killed within the last 16 months.

http://www.adherents.com/Religions_By_Adherents.html' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>Have a look for yourself.

but how many of the people who say they are christians really are?
of that 33% I would say half are just hypocrits.  that what christianity is, a band of hypocrits.

Damn, I sooo need to get my friend on this thread.

If you don't believe in God now, you would be the time he finished talking to you.

And it's really scary cuz he doesn't even try. He's not like trying to convert anyone, he just tells people why he believe in God and how he came to believe and they're all like whoaaa.

I personally don't believe in it.  I think "worshiping a God" comes from the beginning of mankind.  I believe religion was formed or "fine tuned" from primitive worshipping to the skies above.  To me, as people evolved so did religion and having a heaven and a God was sort of people's way of answering their fears/questions about death.

This is my first read of this topic and allready this offends me. I am a christian,  not a strong christian a normal guy that has some beliefs and it is comments like this that get me very annoyed.... why is there a need to bash religion?
There will never be proof.
I believe in God.
If the next person doesn't then so what? They have that right!

Here are some brief arguments some people made about this topic:

Think of an old building, how did it get there? Someone built it, even a child knows that. But how can we be sure, we never saw the building being built, but we still know there was a builder. A painting, how did it get there, a painter painted it. What more proof of a painter would you want than a painting?

Then he made some stupid arguments about bananas and stuff.

The other guy (Athiest) was saying:

Everything needs an enviormonet to live in, God doesn't have one.

Other stuff about praying, people doing good/bad acts in the name of god.

Can God create a rock that is so heavy he can not lift it etc.

I've got like 7 really long posts in the other alien thread, but i'm too lazy to import, I think it's a rather good explaination as to my thoughts on the subject - being that there is no god/higher being and that things can be explained scientifically

Right now i think hiroller has a pretty good explaination, god is not an actual being, but the force of nature, and yes, I agree with him about God was created to explain the unexplainable, and off on my own spin, he's there to fill the void that people need for it.

I agree with Freud that "God" was created to explain the unexplainable (i.e. we see lightning, "Zeus" must be the cause of it). I believe in god, but not as a sentient entity that cares about me or my actions. God is, for lack of a better word, the force of nature.

Yea i posted a similar theory on the first page, i would have given Freud credit had i known it was his theory.
