There are two reasons a man believes in God. Fear and greed. Fear of punishment and hell, and greed for rewards and heaven. Those are the roots of every religion in the world.

a person can have morals without religion...actually religion doesn't dictate morals, just guides the person on a righteous path of morality.

Well, no. I don't think it's healthy to just not do things because of repercussions. However, if we had an innate 'goodness', then would we have no free will? Because we would be determined to do 'good'.

Even more to the point, if that were the case, would we know?
User avatar #439 to #436 - notsixroller (11/26/2012) [-]
Or is it even more to the point?

Maybe.

On here, or in real life?

many places.
my brain works kind of weird though and plays out actions way in advance before they happen.

Could you specify your name, or a place that we might have met, and the same thing happens too me all of the time, but not this time.

the forest/city in southern oregon or on the web somewhere else, people call me the bird man and my other user name is scarletbirds on most sites, i usually have a bird on my shoulder and i wear heavy clothing during most of the year.

I live in Tennessee,and the furthest that I've ever gone out of state is Northern Alabama, and I don't usually go on other sites. Have you ever been to Tennessee? I'm in Manchester if that helps, and I usually go to Tullahoma to shop for comics.

nope, i'm from alaska and the furthest i have gone east is reno nevada and the furthest south i have gone is palm springs, i have been in oregon for about 24 years and i'm 27 now, maybe it was on this site that i'm remembering or you sound like someone else i know and my brain is telling me there's a pattern to look for.
User avatar #231 to #229 - vortexrain (11/26/2012) [-]
That happens to me a very often, anyway that I can help?
I normally look around at my surroundings, that helps me.
User avatar #234 to #231 - novabird ONLINE (11/26/2012) [-]
nope, then again i do manage to do the exact same things almost every single day, having the exact same thing happen was bound to happen again, the weird part is when i feel like i have a skill i know i didn't learn and i remember how to do said skill without actually learning it, if only i could figure out where the memories are coming from.

start with the first thing that pops into your head or start asking yourself questions as though you are a separate person or multiple people, try looking at yourself as though you aren't you when you ask the questions and try many answers at once, try reasoning with yourself and arguing with yourself to get answers.

**novabird is posting more birds to torment the haters**
that's not what it's for, if you really concentrate you can perceive multiple worlds where many things are happening differently, i use it to tell if doing something will get me into trouble or be worth doing and to test the limits of reality and physics by changing the rules, i also use it to alter my sense of time.
someone once told me that it was like a dimensional antenna that allows you to absorb the past thoughts of others in the folded time stream and once you get tuned you can pull anything you want to know out of thin air, i haven't gotten quite that good yet.

that makes things even more interesting, how many skills have you acquired, i have close to 1000 skills that i can use when the right thoughts or words are used, i can create stuff from a simple thought and build stuff from my dreams and from others dreams as long as i know how said thing is to work and can comprehend it and i can fix almost anything and much more.

Yet they just couldn't get "Don't rape other people", they sure got the whole "Don't worship false idols" thing down, but the thought "Hey I really don't want a dick shoved up my ass" never popped into their head.

Well... According to bible it's okay for the daughters to make you drink until you are drunk and rape you, but you get the punishment...

how the story went wet about like this

> be father of 2 girls and get shunned from village
> go live in a cave or smthing.
> have som wine in your store house that your daughter notice
> because lack of males your daughter rapes you and forces you to have their childrens
> you get turned into stone for raping your daughters.

I was raised Christian, now a Deist, but I had never actually read the Bible before, so I gave it a shot. I made it through a lot of the **** in it before a had to stop. I read a story that made me sick. Not sick because of the content, but because people will either teach it to their kids, and say that it's ok because "God" said that it was okay, or they will omit teaching it too their kids because it will make the religion look terrible.

Both my friend, either those or very very desperate for there to be something after death they will believe anything.
User avatar #230 to #190 - karvarausku (11/26/2012) [-]
I would prefer believe in Valhalla...

But it's funny how the christians came and conguered everything in the name of god and killed every one who wouldn't convert into their faith, because it was the only right faith... And what now? Christians blame muslims for doing the exact thing they did far back and keep fighthing whose god is right and whose not.

Don't get me wrong I couldn't care less who believes in what, I'm okay if some on have faith in their god etc. but if they use force methods to teach their way and force people to believe in their god then I can't stand them...

Like the saying. Treath your bible like your dick, be proud of it, but don't force it down your childs throat.

Okay Christianfags, how about this one:   
   
If everything is part of God's plan, then so are murderers, rapists and terrorists. Meaning if you really believe all things are God's will, you can't be mad about any crime that is committed EVER.

"You" are the exchange of calcium ions in your brain which create an extremely realistic illusion of consciousness (which doesn't exist). You are simply a machine that thinks it can feel. When your consciousness fades, all that happens is ions stop being exchanged. A few more mechanical things take place before they run out of fuel and you cease to function. So since you are universally meaningless, go **** bitches and have a good time. It doesn't matter, but it sure is awesome. Do what feels right, which may or may not include being a good person.

I became an atheist about three months ago and have done nothing but ponder this since.

Atheism makes no claim on that. You simply are just saying you don't believe in a god.

I personally just say once you're dead, you're dead. In the ground, cease of consciousness, etc etc what have you.
