we really KNOW anything?
do we only believe that we know what we believe?
complicated question brought to your doorstep from somebody who
didn't send a picture.
I'd share my views on God with you.
do not know whether God exists but I do not preclude that such knowledge
can be obtained.
is a related but separate issue from belief.
belief that God DOES NOT exist is based on FAITH and not on having
absolute, incontrovertible KNOWLEDGE.
if it pleases you
offer it to you like this; Do you have faith or do you know that
there is no such thing as the tooth fairy? I cannot prove to you
that the tooth fairy does not exist but that doesn't mean that it's
one of several plausible theories as to how that half dollar got
under your pillow.
about I put it like this; If I told you that there was a giant yellow
bunny living in a planet sized Easter basket located just outside
of the end of the universe would you know that it wasn't true or
would you simply have faith that it wasn't true?
I am going to put it to you like this; There is a book that says
an all powerful super being encompasses the whole universe, every
moment in time and it is mostly composed of love, miracles and bright
lighting. In that same book it also tells how a rainbow is a promise
from this super being that He will never flood our entire planet
for the response. I'd just like to say that I do not believe that
God exists, and I'd also like to reinforce that by belief is not
based on knowledge, because I think the concept of god is currently
I don't BELIEVE he exists but I suspend judgement over whether he
does or not, as I do not yet know.
I realise that the tooth fairy and yellow rabbit could be disproved
beyond reasonable doubt, but the god that I have no incontrovertible
evidence for or against is not a miraculous, loving or an all knowing
kind of guy, but merely some form of non-intervening, initial creative
force that is currently beyond our understanding. I guess the word
god has so many bad associations that people assume I'm referring
to the plump, bearded man sitting on the cloud.
do you think it is right to say that hard-line god-could-never-exist
atheists are just as presumptuous as theists? Remember, agnosticism
isn't not believing, it is not not knowing.
worry I'm not a christian, and your site brings me endless fun.
is wishy washy fence sitting.
you conclude that every idea of God has been conjured up in the
human head (with no evidence beyond that), atheism becomes an extremely
safe bet. Then raise the stakes to something we should worship?
The bunny is no more outrageous.
