"The difference is I answer questions. I don't believe that religious beliefs are true for the simple reason that they're not rational. If you can't define something it's hard to believe in it. So what is a soul? How does it leave your body? Religious beliefs are vague and that's why you're not supposed to question them because they fall apart when you do."
We can't explain exactly how the mind works or why we dream what we do. If we could tap into that, we could make dreams the way we wanted and everyone could have sex with hot women. But we can't, its unexplainable just like many things. So just because you dont know the answer doesnt mean it doesn't exist. Nobody's going to talk openly because you are "sure", you are going to insult and mock them if they speak up and your Liberal cronies will tag team them.
I find out if someone has a good idea by challenging them. The fact that they can not stand up to me is because their ideas are weak.
The fact that we don't know things for certain does NOT mean we are right to assume one explanation is as good as another.
There was a force that created the universe. It does not follow that the force is all knowing and all powerful. Gravity is a force but nobody worships it because we understand how it works.
I have nothing against religious people as long as they do not try to impose their beliefs on others.
But their beliefs are not rational. And faith is believing even when it makes no sense.
"Come on Stockboy. You made a little joke about the sun and I talked about the son which I got from an episode of Star Trek. They thought the people worshipped the sun but it turned out they were talking about the son of God.
As far as how we got here it started with the Big Bang. Two scientists in another universe were experimenting and Bang!!. 15 billion years later here we are."
I see, I guess I am not hip on these things but makes more sense now. I am not sure about this two scientists theory, seems a bit far fetched. A baby can't seem to to take care of itself, how did two babies take care of themselves long enough to have sex, have more babies and take care of those babies. Where did these babies come from, they grow like carrots?
I think that two scientists creating the universe make as much sense as saying an invisible force did it. Think of time as being round. Just like the inrernational date line you go forward enough it becomes yesterday. If the universe expands enough it pops and then you go back to the start.. And since time is infinite there is no end and no beginning.
"Most people in this country worship the son as god rather than the sun."
What is your point? We were discussing the Sun and throw this out of left field. Is this more liberal humor like the Union thing?
