"Innocent people die"
Innocent people die whether a God exists or not. It says nothing about the perfection or imperfection of a deity.

"Im not your typical christian"
I wouldn't call you Christian. You have to believe in The Bible in order to do this. Cherry picking excludes you from the label.

"because I think God is loving and why would he punish someone he loves for eternity for pain and suffering"
God is loving? Based on what evidence? The Bible says God is loving, but his actions demonstrate otherwise. It can be compared to a serial killer saying "I'm not going to kill you." or a mafia boss saying "I'm not the bad guy."
You are asking the wrong question about punishment. The Bible says that is what he does. You either accept it or you don't. If you don't accept it, you have no reason to assume The Bible is accurate about the existence of a God either.

"god creator of all things, yes even science"
I asked what led you to believe this? You have demonstrated that you cherry pick from The Bible. This tells me you are more concerned with making your own fantasy world than you are with seeking out truth. You have to demonstrate God exists in order to begin to think about this claim.

"other religions have died out because the people died "
People die everyday. The truth is, other religions died out because Jews and early Christians massacred the pagans.

"I meant it felt true to me "
That is selfish. It isn't about what feels true to you, it is about what is true for everyone. "True to me" doesn't actually make it true.

"What do you mean "throw everything that isnt nice and happy out the window"? I know that life isnt all nice and happy, hell ive been through depression twice. "
That is what you have done with your religious perspective, not life.

"Look I know what I believe in has a few of holes but its something I believe its true "
You only care about what makes you feel good. If you did care, you would demonstrate why it is true through evidence.

"I am a christian yet I believe that God is imperfect."
What leads you to conclude this?

"I believe that God has used to be the "almighty smiter" but now he doesnt do anything and just looks upon us and helps very little "
Sure, but where are you getting this?

" I believe that if youre a good person, no matter what race or religion if you hate god or love him, that you will go to heaven."
The Christian God would disagree with you entirely as well as many others, but how have you come to this belief?

"I also think that if youre a bad person that you will go to hell but not forever but then go to heaven after."
I'm not sure where you have gotten this from.

"I believe god created all of the sciences and everything around us. "
What led to this conclusion?

"For me religion is something that can dismissed or proven."
If it can be proven, I sure would like to see the evidence already. Some religion are batting on 2000 years without justification. Other religions went on for even longer but died out without ever providing support.

" I used to be an atheist but for some reason, it didnt feel right to me so I looked inside myself and figured that, for me, this is what I believe in "

It shouldn't be about what you feel. It should be about what is true. That is what separates reality from fantasy. Fantasy can surely be more interesting, fluffy feel good, but it will never make it true. Our beliefs, whether we realize it or not, influence our decisions and even the thinking of other people around us.

It seems to me that you have constructed your own religion with everything that makes you feel fluffy and hopeful and threw out everything that isn't nice and happy. And you are entitled to do that, but is that mentally healthy? Is it beneficial to society? Is it being honest with yourself?

A realistic perspective is what we can verify through evidence as being the closest and best explanation in accordance to what we already know about our reality. It is the only good reason to put belief into anything, be it politics, religion, nature, history or any number of other subjects.

Yes, and you have established why.

I am simply pointing out that the reason you gave is incredibly weak even by your own admittance.
And you went on to point out how entirely unnecessary and pointless it is for your lifestyle.

So I am now questioning why you continue to keep the label that doesn't really apply to you? Why not just throw away the unverified and invest in reality instead? The religious perspective doesn't really matter to you, perhaps a realistic perspective actually would?

"I am a christian yet I believe that God is imperfect."
What leads you to conclude this?

"I believe that God has used to be the "almighty smiter" but now he doesnt do anything and just looks upon us and helps very little "
Sure, but where are you getting this?

" I believe that if youre a good person, no matter what race or religion if you hate god or love him, that you will go to heaven."
The Christian God would disagree with you entirely as well as many others, but how have you come to this belief?

"I also think that if youre a bad person that you will go to hell but not forever but then go to heaven after."
I'm not sure where you have gotten this from.

"I believe god created all of the sciences and everything around us. "
What led to this conclusion?

"For me religion is something that can dismissed or proven."
If it can be proven, I sure would like to see the evidence already. Some religion are batting on 2000 years without justification. Other religions went on for even longer but died out without ever providing support.

" I used to be an atheist but for some reason, it didnt feel right to me so I looked inside myself and figured that, for me, this is what I believe in "

It shouldn't be about what you feel. It should be about what is true. That is what separates reality from fantasy. Fantasy can surely be more interesting, fluffy feel good, but it will never make it true. Our beliefs, whether we realize it or not, influence our decisions and even the thinking of other people around us.

It seems to me that you have constructed your own religion with everything that makes you feel fluffy and hopeful and threw out everything that isn't nice and happy. And you are entitled to do that, but is that mentally healthy? Is it beneficial to society? Is it being honest with yourself?

Innocent people die

old and new testament

Im not your typical christian

because I think God is loving and why would he punish someone he loves for eternity for pain and suffering

god creator of all things, yes even science

other religions have died out because the people died

I meant it felt true to me

What do you mean "throw everything that isnt nice and happy out the window"? I know that life isnt all nice and happy, hell ive been through depression twice.

Look I know what I believe in has a few of holes but its something I believe its true

"Innocent people die"
Innocent people die whether a God exists or not. It says nothing about the perfection or imperfection of a deity.

"Im not your typical christian"
I wouldn't call you Christian. You have to believe in The Bible in order to do this. Cherry picking excludes you from the label.

"because I think God is loving and why would he punish someone he loves for eternity for pain and suffering"
God is loving? Based on what evidence? The Bible says God is loving, but his actions demonstrate otherwise. It can be compared to a serial killer saying "I'm not going to kill you." or a mafia boss saying "I'm not the bad guy."
You are asking the wrong question about punishment. The Bible says that is what he does. You either accept it or you don't. If you don't accept it, you have no reason to assume The Bible is accurate about the existence of a God either.

"god creator of all things, yes even science"
I asked what led you to believe this? You have demonstrated that you cherry pick from The Bible. This tells me you are more concerned with making your own fantasy world than you are with seeking out truth. You have to demonstrate God exists in order to begin to think about this claim.

"other religions have died out because the people died "
People die everyday. The truth is, other religions died out because Jews and early Christians massacred the pagans.

"I meant it felt true to me "
That is selfish. It isn't about what feels true to you, it is about what is true for everyone. "True to me" doesn't actually make it true.

"What do you mean "throw everything that isnt nice and happy out the window"? I know that life isnt all nice and happy, hell ive been through depression twice. "
That is what you have done with your religious perspective, not life.

"Look I know what I believe in has a few of holes but its something I believe its true "
You only care about what makes you feel good. If you did care, you would demonstrate why it is true through evidence.

So you acknowledge that your beliefs aren't substantiated, but you just want them to be true because they make you feel good.

That is fine I suppose as long as you acknowledge that.

But how will that help you in life? How will that help others? Have you considered the negative consequences of such belief? Your belief surely influences others, especially your offspring.

Wouldn't you rather believe in as many true things as possible?
User avatar #45733 - damandan (11/14/2013) [-]
I mean for me religion isnt a huge thing in my life I kinda believe in my own different thing and I still believe in the sciences and what not. But for me believing in true things doesnt go against my belief. I just want to be a good person on my own, not what other people say. Im not going to hate a person on their belief but on what they do

User avatar #45734 - eight (11/14/2013) [-]
Well, if it isn't a huge thing in your life, you believe in the sciences and all you want to be is a good person, I fail to see the point of holding onto it. It is just unnecessary baggage.
User avatar #45750 - damandan (11/15/2013) [-]
I hold on to it because its something I believe in
User avatar #45753 - eight (11/15/2013) [-]
Yes, and you have established why.

I am simply pointing out that the reason you gave is incredibly weak even by your own admittance.
And you went on to point out how entirely unnecessary and pointless it is for your lifestyle.

So I am now questioning why you continue to keep the label that doesn't really apply to you? Why not just throw away the unverified and invest in reality instead? The religious perspective doesn't really matter to you, perhaps a realistic perspective actually would?
User avatar #45755 - damandan (11/15/2013) [-]
What is the realistic perspective?
User avatar #45756 - eight (11/15/2013) [-]
A realistic perspective is what we can verify through evidence as being the closest and best explanation in accordance to what we already know about our reality. It is the only good reason to put belief into anything, be it politics, religion, nature, history or any number of other subjects.
User avatar #45760 - damandan (11/15/2013) [-]
Thats kinda the way I based my belief.
I am a christian yet I believe that God is imperfect. I believe that God has used to be the "almighty smiter" but now he doesnt do anything and just looks upon us and helps very little like in that futurama episode . I believe that if youre a good person, no matter what race or religion if you hate god or love him, that you will go to heaven. I also think that if youre a bad person that you will go to hell but not forever but then go to heaven after. I believe god created all of the sciences and everything around us.

I have faith in the Gators! They've proven over and over they are capable of scoring, and turning the ball over. And what I'm most proud of, is that second half performance. We could be looking at a huge BCS bowl game!

If they do, Im looking at the championship
User avatar #50 to #49 - cpthitsugaya (10/24/2012) [-]
Which one? Cause if they beat Georgia, it's Alabama in the SEC champs regardless, and I'm not too sure on that one
User avatar #51 to #50 - damandan (10/24/2012) [-]
Im talking about BCS. Bama hasnt played a good team all year and wouldnt be prepared for UF if out offence stays consistent
User avatar #52 to #51 - cpthitsugaya (10/24/2012) [-]
That's a good point, but say we do make BCS, and face someone like Kansas St. or Oregon. Do you think our defense could stop those overpowered offenses?
