WHOEVER SENT ME THAT COMMENT, I STATED THIS IS A PLACE FOR DEBATING AND EXPRESSING OPINIONS ON RELIGIOUS BELIEFS NOT FOR FLAMING.
I didn't know if I was allowed to post this, if not I'm sorry.
(if you post an opinion please back it up)
This is a thread for posting your opinion and e-bating not for name calling and rude remarks.
Anyways, I just wanted to know some of AF's member's opinions on religious affairs and such.
I personally believe that there is no heaven or hell.
My reasons are as followed:
Most people (religious) believe that their god answers prayer. If someone has a terminal illness and dies, it was the will of their god. If they somehow survive, it was a miracle.
Prayer works<not literally, just in the saying of the human mind it works due to false belief> because people believe it works. In reality, the things prayed for have a 50-50 chance<most likely lower>of being answered. But when someone believes if they pray for, say, a new job and they have to stay at the old job instead, they believe their prayers were answered anyways.
I don't believe in prayer and also don't believe any prayers have ever been answered anywhere in the world.
Show me some proof and I will change my mind. Of course, I have been saying this for months now and haven't seen anything to change my mind. I don't expect anything to change because their would have to be a god to answer prayers and there are no gods<not Allah, not satan not Jesus no gods>. Only believers. That people can't see this is <infuriating> to me.
But everyone has their own opinions I suppose. There is no destiny, fate, or anything of the category. Everything in this world is decided by chance, not by the will of some faulty mythical god. It's like saying drinking dragon blood gives you dragon powers(lame example, eh?).
"The three possible answers to prayer are yes, no or not now but whatever the outcome it is always "Gods will". The dillema is that I always get the same results when I pray to a rock."
If you submit proof god does or doesn't exist please make it logical.
I don't go for that "he will show himself when the time is right" or "open your heart and he will show himself to you" crud.
Or "he isn't real because it is impossible" State your facts, pal.
P.S. I believe in Darwin's theory of evolution.
P.S.S. If any offense is taken from this please PM me and I will apologize.
Just putting my opinion.
