Religous idiots. Religion was “created” by humans all over the globe which is why we have so many different religions/beliefs . Sole purpose it was created was if you didn’t understand something you would say “its an act of god” . i used to go to church and pray til i got tired of hoping and seeing evil everywhere . I live happy without religion

The atheists in this comment section make me cringe. People who preach logic and spew strings of webs coated in falacious bullshit and fast sarcastic quip are a foolish lot. I have no regrets rejecting such morons.
Lalasong

+Nicholas "Loading a question" isn't a fallacy. I beg to differ. www.fallacyfiles.org/loadques.html You need to read more. By having a fixed presumption built into your questions this would limit my replies in addtion to making an apperance of unreason. If I anwsered your question directly, I would have to show you through reason, my unresonable assertions. Do you think I would be so foolish to allow that to happen? Also I would really appreciate it, if you were a little more consistent. I don't know if it's your intent, but "preach logic" isn't a slur. If you intentially assert that, then your strawmanning right off the bat.' If anything, it's a reference to those who preach, but do not practice. Atheists can be and are hypocrites. I will answer your questions, the minute you learn to ask better questions.
Rodrigo Bento
Rodrigo Bento 7 soat oldin
+Nicholas I'm talking from personal experience and I don't need evidence to prove my comment. There's no need to explain to me why atheists are or aren't superior because that doesn't pertain to any of what I said. I was referring to the occasional and obnoxious comments from non believers who claim to be superior/smarter simply for the fact that they aren't religious, and then don't even bother to have an actual conversation. The "religious people are dumb/non religious people use logic" format and its variations are lazy insults disguised as arguments. They have no substance and shouldn't be in a conversation. Not if you want to be taken seriously anyway.
Nicholas
Nicholas 9 soat oldin
+Rodrigo Bento We act superior because we have the superior arguments, the superior evidence, the advantage of the null hypothisis and statistically we are better educated. Plus you are making extraordinary claims without the benefit of extraordinary evidence.
Nicholas
Nicholas 9 soat oldin
+Lalasong No. I asked a question. A question canct be a fallacy, by definition, because a fallacy is an argument that isn't logically valid. I haven't made an argument. I have asked a question. Three actually. "Loading a question" isn't a fallacy. "Begging the question" is a fallacy. It is the inclusion of the conclusion within one of the premises of an argument. Now, are you going to answer any of my questions? You appeared to make a claim that atheists use falalcious reasoning. You also used the term "preach logic" as a slur, appeearing to imply that logic was a negative force. I was seeking clarification. So what have you got?
Rodrigo Bento
Rodrigo Bento 10 soat oldin
+Lalasong I agree to an extent. It's tough to take some of these people seriously when all they do is act superior based solely on the fact that they aren't religious. But, ideally, if someone makes an argument or holds a stance against Christianity in the comments they should be well versed in the Bible. The difference between atheists/non-believers and the religious is that the former can't just hide behind a book when promoting their position like so many christians do, which is why we see so many atheists use their own weapon against them. Not saying they're all correct but I've seen some genuinely good points being made this way.

I don't believe in god but I don't like being called atheist either. I like the idea just like Ricky does. I'm not denying the whole thing since I was raised as christian, I simply don't believe in some dude who "created the world" . I didn't get to choose whether I believe or not 😂. If someone comes to speak to me about god and jesus, and that my tattoos are work of satan, it's the people I hate. Not the religion. In my country religion is something really personal, you don't go around yelling that you believe in god. And it's almost rude to even ask. Fuck, I didn't even know my mom believed in god until I was 21 years old 😂😂😂 not even when she said "thank you jesus for the food" and I answered "you fucking made it". I mean, I like religious movies or whatever. I like "history" was it real or not, like exodus for an example 😂

Stephen, the only way you can proof there is one GOD, is to prove it through the Holy Book Quran. I wont ask you to consider it as Muslim or whatever, but i want you to understand that nothing in any book has ever claimed more truths about this world than Quran. I would beg you to please read it and then talk to a atheist and i promise, each time.... you will win.... :)
Nicholas
Nicholas 5 kun oldin
Errr no. The Quran is the claim. What you need is empirically verifiable evidence. Do You have any of that? Maybe you should start by demonstrating that a god could exist? And there are plenty of books with more onformation and more accurate information that the Qur'an. And they have the added benefit of not being xenophobic, sexist, masochistic, homophobic and bigoted. They don't instuct you to kill anyone either. And they get the science right, not woefully wrong like the Quran. Just name one piece of science that originates in the Qur'an. Not something that science discovered and you want to post hoc rationalise into being a description. Something that wasn't known and came dorectly from the quran without having to be discovered by science first.

How’s this theory ,bear with me it’s long but lots of sense.my own opinion.good man Ricky in advance.now- I think years ago when man became out of the caves and a semi ensible brain. I think that that era of human at some stage had an opiphany,what if we created a myth to give there children some morals on adult life and some made up knowledge to make the race a nice creature to live with,eg-treat others how you would like to be treated,,do not steal or be greedy and share with each other,treat the opposite sex with love and compassion and not a breeding machine or play toy ONLY... I grew up as a Roman Catholic or raised as,I sang soprano in a boys choir in my cathedral here in my city,I grew up with all the modern morals and standards of a good catholic was expected.then when I was 12 my voice broke and ultimately when I was 1 month away I left the lads and started to act more a man.As well as my voice changing my opinions likes and dislikes began to become my own as well as my faith.This part I started to see cracks in and finally relayed that the whole Catholic Church was a complete fabricated child’s story made up to hone and mould us into a respectful adult,IT WORKED)the whole idea was brilliant on creating a more pleasant environment to grow in and on the primary goal achieved.This is what I think happened years ago when there wasn’t even a waterproof hooded top with matching Nike air max not to mention the internet when global instant knowledge would be like magic to an earth occupier of the ages.i think that at some point the myth that was created to control our children’s behaviour and point our civilisation in a positive way for the future has somehow spilled onto the adult population as fact and not fiction,this breaking communication left our dumber versions of us in ancient times believing their own made up story’s of gods and heaven and hell and clouds with men sitting on top with a beard and a staff and some even went as far as sneezing bolts of light on living demons.come on really are we really still believing these shocking stories that’s clearly fabricated.i don’t know if the truth will be revealed as the power and wealth involved in religions worldwide is astronomical in power and cash.i mean the.popes dress gear and headgear is like lord of the rings wizards and witches and big gold staffs ,FOR WHAT HMM FOR WHAT,NOTHING EXCEPT TO DRESS UP MORE SILLY CAUSE THEYVE TO MUCH INCOME.THATS THE TRUTH I BELEIVE..So that’s where I’m conflicted wheather the ancient elders dropped the act upon the people for wealth or for stupidity on the reason for the jotted mythical legends ,that I can only guess,leave your comments in the reply’s on your thoughts.iv got a whole jotted story that I’ve changed added and deleted over the years but I think I’m almost at a fixed version of my events on the whole religion beginnings based on science and deletion of the modern accepted version of religion and my own thoughts and more realistic reason for the modern view of life and death than the contradictory stories of the non gods book THE BIBLE but instead a man made book of believers, non believers and maybe brainwashed or mentally ill beings over the last few thousand years I mean,a scientifically impossible feat being,a lady getting pregnant without a sperm fertilisation but a phantom bit of sex ending in conception without the use of roofies or a male even.Well poor Joseph new deep down that Mary’s was out kicking it with some fella but god was so widely believed at the time that it would be unethical for Joseph to state his concerns in the fear of getting stoned by extremist villagers.So better save it joe Mary’s a hoe fo sho,...lol that’s right get over it the comments not that bad in light of Mary’s kicking it with other dudes,,, I think that Jesus was real a good man but that’s all it’s says a man no differences a man but in gods likeness,Jesus was raised by Mary and hoseph,as the son of god.jesus grew up with the fantastic belief of his mother and began acting out his ludicrous fantasy of touching men eyes and regaining the sight sound and cripples up and walking alone.but !!!!!!!!!!hes only a man wait a man that is made without the need for sperm,has hands that can heal people who’s born blind,deaf,paralysed and can split a sea in half to walk across the sea floor I’m guessing no boats,a raft anyone no no,,,ok,moving on he then can dander across Atlantic Ocean in a pair of scandals or sandles..comes to life after being dead for three days and does a runner.he was offered a bitty sex from Mary magdoline and he didn’t hop on,HES A NORMAL MAN PEOPLE THATS WHAT THE CONTRADICTIONS SAYS ANYWAY. Divinci says different but that would ruin the income of the Vatican and put some pedophiles out of work.so divincis,disregarded as insignificant and rumour.I think not if this wasn’t relevant but walking on water is 100% true Whitchurch is more plausible a man walking across the pond from Ireland to England or- getting horny having sex with a woman the opposite from the man!!!jesus remember normal man the son of god iojahova 100% sperm free water walking celebate son of the lord our god.JESUS CHRIST,,,literally. The mythical visions is an unrepairable train wreck that was pretty water tight until the advent of the wonderful World Wide Web and all its historical information from everywhere.If it’s your wish to find a more believable reason for religion and our fairytale happy ending in heaven, There’s 2799 other gods and faiths of various points of view sometimes the same god with different aspects,who’s correct ?because I was raised a r.c with my parents who was again brought up in 6 known previous generations before me we’ll they must be correct ,but if I still was disillusioned I would certainly say this is definitely the case because that’s how I was brought up and made to go to chapel on a sunday for an hour and a half to sing and listen to crappy fairytales from the mythical chronicles of the bible.i might add that one story of the bible of the burning bush may well have been a dmt producing bush giving the spirit molicule out in smoke form which is apparently very surreal,if you had the pleasure do tell underneath on my reply please tell your experience apparently this can be a game changer in beliefs is that true please comment on journeys, !if you’d be interested in seeing a channel dedicated to investigating and taking into account every different view points or beliefs in life behind the grave or how our opinions became our mythical reality with no evidence apart from people’s accounts who claim to have witnessed these events unfold or believed some camp fire stories or folk lore and panned them off as there own,or maybe acid or dmt(the spirit molecule )gave rise for a common practice of religion or maybe you view religion as a cult? Is Scientology a cult yes no ?if you answered no Y not if almost 3000 other beliefs is classed religion what’s the difference? We could start a full section on many topics and maybe do some live hangouts and have discussions.if this would interest you please give my comment a thumbs up and I’ll post back th3 channel name and we’ll crack on with it,it could be very interesting indeed the amount of opinions and we’ll make nothing out of bounds,cheers, Also I will end by saying I think the original idea to keep people in line and point kids in the right direction to keep order like keeping them in line by saying Santa is real at the North Pole and they need to be good or no presents for them just a bag of coal,it all worked in my favour I treat people with respect if respects shown to me I treat women properly,I’m not afraid to express myself and call a spade a spade and if something smells and looks like shot I’ll say it’s shit.and anyone out there reading the religion of their choice and believes it then remember you don’t believe in 2699 out of 2700 I only don’t approve of one more than you.The atheist ...that’s me thanks if you read til the end I know I crammed that in as compressed as I could but have a much broader reasoning for my own decision,.thank you..from stevey

+Joe Smoke I have a BSc in enginnering and a post graduate diploma in Environmental Science. I also have advanced level maths and physics. Is that good enough? I'm not a theroreticl physicist and i don't have a phd, but i think i have an above average education in physical sciences. My point is that you don't "just know". You believe. You think you know, but if you can't show it, you don't know it. That's why you need to study epistomology. Remember, the truth has nothing to fear from enquiry. So ask yourself, do you care what is true? If you are wrong, would you want to know?

Nicholas Thanks for coming back, Nicholas. At present, anyone who claims to know quantum physics doesn't know it. But I do believe in time we will get there and maybe find more proof of God. The slit experiment and Schrödinger's Cat one is fascinating to me. Some would argue that the Universe is conscious and I believe it is, and maybe Freeman Dyson implied this when he appeared to suggest that atoms are aware, while others will put this down to a misunderstanding, semantics. Personally, I don't care I just know what I know and nor do I need to prove it. Epistemology. Knowledge, which you imply you have. I imply from wisdom more, which is said to be the highest form of intelligence. Like I've said before, no pen or tongue can describe where I'm coming from and especially to the unenlightened. To me consciousness is having fun and keeping us arguing about this that and the other, when it's all probably a dream in absolute truth. Great quote from, Rumi: This place is a dream. Only a sleeper considers it real. Then death comes like dawn, and you wake up laughing at what you thought was your grief. Rumi
Nicholas
Nicholas 5 kun oldin
+Joe Smoke No it isn't backed up by quantum physics. Do you claim to understand quantum physics? What you have there is the rather common practice of people throwing out a bit of quantum physics (which is genuinely mysterious) to create a bit of mystery. And as John Adams says, "mystery is made a convenient cover for absurdity". Have you considered that the reason I reject such nonsense is that i actually have some idea of what i'm talking about? And with statements like "I know, i don't have to prove it, because I just know", you don't give the impression of someone with a sound epistomology.
Joe Smoke

Nicholas Fast response! I do indeed know what a fallacy of composition means. Also, I just asked you questions that you have refrained from answering, which is your choice, but I think I touched a raw nerve there, Nicholas. You appear unenlightened, and how can I explain to you what no pen or tongue can describe. I just know and I don't need to prove it, because I just know...Psychic or not what's said in the article appears to be backed up by quantum physics and in a number of experiments that have been performed in the past. You are too locked into the Ego/Conditioned mind to believe otherwise, but no worries because all works out fine in the end, Nicholas. You might even make a saint in time. We are probably all saints in the making so let your name serve you well. Continue to think profoundly and good luck in your life.

As long as Humanity exists on this Earth, the Holy Bible is here to stay. Over the centuries plenty of evildoers have tried to destroy every Bible and remove it from the face of the Earth, absolutely cannot be done!! God insists that his truth will be available to those who are willing to hear it. There are very few legitimate atheists, the vast majority are liars who simply reject God because He warns of eternal punishment for those who deny Him. If God allowed sin and promised heaven to everyone whether they're for or against him, almost every last one of you so-called atheists would abandon your scientific arguments and jump on the Heaven bandwagon. Offended by my comment? Perfect!!
Nicholas
Nicholas 5 kun oldin
+busybody1 It's not my logic. It's logic. Do you have any justification for the claim that logic comes from God? How do you propose that works? If your god only accepts gullible people who accept claims without evidence, then your God is a dick. Even more so for burning them forever for being the logical skeptic that (if it exists, and i'm assuming you believe this) god made me in the first place. But you're not sharing truth. You are sharing an opinion. What you can claim as truth is what you can show to be true. I know all of this flies in the face of what You believe, but apart from being contrary to what you take on faith, can you find anything wrong with what I say? Is it fallacious? Is it factually incorrect? Have i claimed anything i can't demonstrate? Is what i say somethign you accept for every other aspect of life? It probably is right? So why not religion? Think on that for a while.

Listen, I'm not going back and forth with you. I'm a Believer, you're an unbeliever who commented on my comment. You keep using your feeble logic to understand your creator, that's where your logic comes from. God demands we come to him through faith alone, but God grants free will for you to choose, you have chosen to reject him and I chose to accept him. If you discovered evidence that God actually exists, and became convinced by that evidence, you could not be accepted By God because you didn't come to him through faith alone. I'm not inviting you to argue endlessly with me, and God doesn't expect me to convince you of his existence. As his follower he simply encourages me to share his truth with those who are willing to hear. Time to hit the mute button and make you go away, if you ever want to know about God there are plenty of resources. GOD BLESS

+busybody1 Why do you think I don't understand your concept of God? Is it because I don't agree? And what makes you think it's me that doesn't understand free will? Maybe you should start by defining what you think free will is? Have I said anything that is illogical, irrational or fallacious? I know you have probably been spoon fed the idea that what you believe is built on a solid foundarion, but it isn't. Faith is demonstrably unreliable. Faith doesn't lead to truth. And maybe you should tell me why you are convinced that the bible should be trusted without evidence?

+busybody1 Yes we do. To accept something without doing so is, by definition, irrational. You do this for everything else in your life, so why not religion? Again, you've made a claim about God. How do we know if you are right? We know how you came upon that opinion. It's in an old book. Is that enough on its own? Does that mean the Qur'an is also correct? No. The bible, a book written by the hand of men, claims that you need faith alone. It also claims it is a mix of faith and works, depending which bit you read. Whay should we accept that it is true? If there is no god then it isn't. Even if there is a god, there is no gaurentee it is your god or that the bible is accurate. So you tried pascals wager AGAIN? So, again, it has no power. I will take your threat seriously when you can demonstrate that your god is real and that what you say is an accurate representation of your God. In the meantime i suggest ypu need tonrealsise that you are in the vast minority of people when it comes to what you think is required to appease a god. You should be worryng thatvthe jews are right and that the Muslims are right as well as all the other religions past and present and all the contradictory versions of your own religion. You also need to worry about a god not yet discovered. Maybe one thatvdoesnct like irrationality and will punish anyone who believes on faith and it is the atheists who are going to go to heaven. You have nothing more than thinking you are right because you think you are right, and that is a house of cards just waiting to come down. And no, you don't have free will to chose.

+Nicholas Its not special pleading if it is a core tenet of religion. You are failing to understand the views of all parties. I am not ignoring your point, but rather presenting the religious viewpoint. (you might need to refresh yourself on the definition of special pleading) Morality is as objective as maths or physics. Plenty of Psychology papers out there to support this Out of nothing, nothing comes.

+Big Joobs And that is special pleading. As for your theory of creation the argument is valid but it is not sound. You have no denonstrstion that the first two premises are true. You've also tried an argument from incredulity and a false dichotomy fallacy. You've asserted that morality is an objective concept when it isn't. I know you think you are using reason and logic but your argument is full of logical fallacies, faulty reasoning and factually incorrect assumptions.
Big Joobs

+Nicholas You appear to have a narrowminded approach to this topic. It is not a argument of ID to suggest that the designer exists in our material universe. Rather, that the creator may exist in another realm of existence. I would think this would be an obvious point as most if not all religions are hinged on this concept. Transferal to afterlife? If a designer is eternal, it by no means suggest that anything else in our existence is similarly eternal. You brought up complexity, so I thought i would add to that topic. I find it extremely ignorant to believe that the development of life and matter in the universe is simply a result of a massive cosmic car crash. There is no scientific explanation or hypothesis to explain how information (DNA) got into biology through naturalism. DNA in its amazing complexity, is at its core information about the building blocks of life? Information is commonly the hallmark of a mind. I cant even begin to argue or explain consciousness and the human mind, or objective concepts like morality, dignity. Moreover, the circumstances for the right mass, the right light, the right age, the right distance, the right orbit, the right galaxy, the right location to nurture living, (conscious) organisms on a circling planet are ridiculously precise and would be the equivalent of winning the lotto like a billion times in a row. Other than a creator, what explanation is there for a physical reality? It always existed? Impossible (for you). Chance? That is a rejection of the need for explanation. No theory of creation is simple. Ill also just put the kalam arguement below: 1. Everything which begins to exist has a cause apart from itself. 2. The universe began to exist. 3. Therefore, the universe has a cause apart from itself. To Kim Jong Un below: Really? Contradictions are a result of translation, not the religion. If you are referring to contradictions between religions? Many religions plagiarized from each other i grant you- namely Islam, as this was created ~1200 years after Christianity and was created by an illiterate warlord in a desert somewhere. But this by no means negates the basic concepts many religions share, design.

Look, we have physical proof of the German death camps. And still people believe the holocaust was a lie. We've been to the moon, and have physical evidence. And people still say, "Nope, we haven't been". We still have Flat-Earther's walking around today for fuck's sake. Gervais really needs to give his hatred for Christianity a rest. Religions are shit, yes. But the possibility of a being existing on a different plane of existence, is theoretically possible. Even scientists agree. So while the religions are most definitely wrong, it doesn't mean that a creator doesn't exist. For all we know, we are floating on an atom of a mitochondria inside the organism of another being. The "Big Bang" was the sperm fertilizing the egg. Can you hear me, Horton?

Ricky’s logic is off - how many women is he married to - one and rejected the others ☝️ so why do we need to accept multiple gods? - if you believe the Bible is not fiction and was directed by God then of course it would come back no matter how much you destroyed it - even empirical science is based on human observation and people contradict and disagree now let alone if we start all over again. Much of what we believe is based on accepted premises and so to think it will be completely replicated perfectly is naive
Nicholas
Nicholas 14 kun oldin
Sorry Rush, It is your logic that is a bit off. The gods analogy is't to suggest you should accept all gods, it is to demonstrate that everyone agrees that almost all gods are false and that incredulity at the prospect of disbelieving your god is unfounded and hypocritical considering you dismiss everyone else's for much the same reasons we dismiss yours. If you believe the bible is from God, then you believe that it could come back the same. But What you believe and what is true are different things. And believing it will come back the same is not the same as it actually coming back the same. And all the evidence supports Ricky. Science is a process of continued refinement and accuracy constantly moving towards a better understanding of tbe universe. Sometimes, as more evidence becomes available, what was thought to be true is shown not to be, but the progress is always in the same direction. Religion on the other hand is constantly fragmenting and doesn't display the attrulibutes that you would expect if everyone was getting it from God. You can say that only one set if revalations was true and the rest false, but now you are special pleading and admitting that a book claiming to be from god isn't necessarily from God. Giben the ultimate goal of science, yes, eventually they would come back the same. The journey might be different. The order might be different, but as he says, the same tests will give the same results as they did before. Gravity will be as it was. Germs will still cause disease and not miasmers. Oxygen will still be needed for combustion, electricity and magnetism will still have the same relationship. E will still equal mc2 and P will still equal NRT.

Does it lasting that long mean that all the various hindu gods are real? Does feeling that something is true make it true? Can you feel something and it can be wrong?

Exactly. I agree. But logic is logic and it has rules. It is still not true to say it is logical to say that god doesn't exist because what logic actually says is that to make that claim you need to have exhausted all possibilities. And you can't do that. That's why you need to say what you can demostrate of justifiy. You can say it is unreasonable to believe in a god because there is no demonstration of one. You can say that there is no reason to accept that there is a god. You can say that if there is a god it is indistinguishable from one that doesn't exist. You can say that the null hypothisis is that a god does not exist and you take the no god position on that basis. You can even say there is no god. What you can't say, and be using the term correctly is that you know there is no god. You do yourself a disservice in doing so and you attract a burden of proof that then gets levied at the rest of us.

If you need a demonstration, try writing a logical sylogism that ends with that conclusion. Stick to what can be reasoned, what can be believed and what can actually be demonstrated.

+evergreenpenguin this is a common mis-conception about forgiveness. Forgiveness primarily belongs to the victim and not the perpetrator of crime. Leaving God aside for the time being, forgiveness belongs to the one that the injury has happened too, it's to free them from bitterness and hatred. Furthermore forgiveness and justice are two different things. I may forgive the person who stole from me, but from the right side of the jail bars so to speak. You alone are responsible for your actions, but what do you do when something happens to you that is out of your control? This is where forgiveness is a useful tool. Like i said, forgiveness belongs to injured.

Jay Wetton Not in the slightest. When I have wronged someone, I go to them and personally apologise, they then choose whether or not to forgive me. What I don’t do, is wrong a bunch of people, and then instead of asking for forgiveness to the people I’ve wronged, ask a magical being instead. It completely removes the idea of being responsible for your actions, as you can do truly awful things for 90 years, then ask an invisible being to forgive you, and all is well with the world. Well guess what, all is not well, as all of those people you raped and killed aren’t magically healed by your quiet prayer. I am responsible for MY actions, and not those of anyone else.

I think it's just as valuable and important to forgive because you want to lower your blood pressure as it is for any pious reason.

For me to blaspheme all it takes is to disagree with what you want me to buy myself into. Anything that speaks against which you hold above yourself for which anything left inside of you is sin (the part you don't want me to see,for why you distract with an ego projection) makes you delving more in what is left inside of you which then reveals your true nature. To repent means to say I would agree with you and was wrong to agree with me. But I'm not you. Peace is all nice and dandy.

+King George The third Sure you can reply. Nobody stops you. But what you don't accept is the fact alone that nobody so far has proven any kind of god to exist. Nobody has ever seen a god, spoken to a god, or interacted otherwise with a god. At least not with a god as described by religions. The thing is that religions describe broken gods. Gods are ego projections. And to make them work as a so called exterior force you need to separate the rest of your ego from that very piece you want to project as an outer force. And that's why religious people are not happy, or otherwise they would bear no jealousy at all and would not try to convince anyone else. For they project their inner lust, fears and whatnot onto the outside world and call it sin. They mostly project not what is wrong with the world but what they hate about the world. This often times is narrowed down to a small fraction of the actual world. This inner split up creates distance to anything else. Hence their idea of god vs the world. In reality they mean themselves vs the things they don't like. Broken egos, broken gods. Religion. And there is gets interesting where many broken egos come together to try and re-inform a complete entity - god the exterior force. They take their little broken egos or those parts they want out of themselves for everyone to see as something universal and bring them together, each one his own singled out piece, to create this 'whole being'. And since this 'whole being' represents all they want to reflect further onto others, people outside of their community, they call it perfect. But it can't be perfect since it is only a patchwork, artificially crafted from many pieces that for many different aspects never fit together well enough to inform a believable exterior god. God/ego only functions as a whole when no portion of it, not a single part is separated to only be brought together with other alien ego fractals. This forced idea to create one, one to rule all others. It is nothing but forced and fetishized communal spirit where people only obey to this patchwork god and every other part left inside of each person is hated and labelled sin for these not being part of the fetishized god,that which is perfect and must be heralded. Where people can not be allowed to think for themselves. The entire legion idea,the one who is many, it is actually religious communities to create their own legion. Their own legion, 'whole' exterior ego/god is always good. The collected ego fragments/god of other communities are always bad, the evil legion. I might reflect a bit more on what I said in this comment but it does good enough for now to give you an insight about the reality of gods and why they never work out as a community wants to make believe.

No. Science is the method. All claims are provisional subject to revised evidence anyway. The fact that individual theories are updated when new evidence comes to light proves science right, not wrong.

+jonathan l No theory in science is proven in abosolute terms. That goes for gravity, germs and atoms, but they aee demostrably correct in the framework in which they are used. You acceot those but you make exceptions for the two theories that contradict most heavily with your religious belief. And if proof is what you are after before you accept something, why do you accept religious claims on the strength of a claim in an old book? Don't you think that is a double standard?

Yes I agree with you ,science can provide us with very strong evidence for it's theories but it's not proof .When it comes to science proving anything is an impossibility. From an empirical point of view all we have to guide us are the quantities we can measure and observe . Even at that the quantities are only as good as the tools we observe them with .

Of course we can. Do you even no what a scientific theory is? Do you know about sodium red shift from type 1a supernovas proving that the universe is expanding from a central point? Do you know about the Hubble Law? Do you know about relativity or the Hawkin Penrose equations? The big bang is as well proven as the idea that germs cause disease. You know, the germ THEORY of disease.

No. What stephen did was an equivocation fallacy that rendered his argument invalid. Ricky tried to explain with his book analogy but what he shoukd probably have done is called out Stephen on his use of a logical fallacy and pointed out that it is not "faith" in Hawkin. Hawkin's work has to pass through the scientific method to be accepted. It need to be peer reviewed and when he publishes his ideas he need to back them up with data that demonstrates that he is right. What we have is confidence (not faith) in the scientific method by virtue of the fact that has proven itself over and over and over again to be a reliable method of decerning the best available explanation of a set of observed facts. Religion on the other hand does use faith. And not confidence, but "the evidence of things unseen". It requires you to accept stories from anonymous ironage books without question based on authority rather than evidence. My advice is not to try such a fallacious and easily debunked argument on an atheist.

This is what's wrong with Liberal and Democrat so called Christians! They dont stand up for Truth in Jesus Christ, they just agree with unbelievers!! Science has always been proven wrong, they change their stance on their findings or beliefs all the time! But God Never changes!! Truth is, science is trying to catch up with God's word, Everything humans need to know is written in the bible!!

Sheree, science is a method for gaining understanding of the universe based on evidence. It is a process of constant iteration towards an end goal of a full understanding. It is meant to change. Change shows it is working. Science has proved to be the single most reliable method for ascertaining the truth about the universe that mankind has ever produced. I guarantee that you conveniently forget you assertion that science is wrong when it comes to all of the technology and medicine that our society relies on. Do you doubt gravity? Do you use biblical remedies or modern medicine when you are ill? Do use suncream to protect you from the sun or use the internet? You spend your whole life using the products that prove science works, you simply make an exception for a few specific parts because the conflict with your holy book. The fact that religion is stuck defending ironage mythology against evidence is a bad thing that exposes it's flaws, not a good thing.

Stephen Colbert doesn't know much about philosophy and less about Christian apologetics (the defense of the faith). But Gervais does a very good job of acting like someone who's never thought about anything deep for very long. The assertion that atheism is NOT a belief system only works if you're an atheist, who is too lazy to examine his or her thoughts with any diligence.
Robert Widdowson
Robert Widdowson 2 kun oldin
+Nicholas I understand your argument. It's not complicated, and I've heard it often from atheists. But saying something repeatedly doesn't make it true. Atheism is a belief system, especially since atheists, like Gervais, continually assert that the universe was not created by a supernatural being. By denying the creator God, he, and every atheist, denies the ontological argument for cosmology. But that's not the end of the discussion, only the beginning. What happens next? Why does the material universe continue in its present manifestation? Where, for example, does the law of consistency come from? These are fundamental questions that meta-physicians have pondered for eons, with great fruitfulness. Yet modern scientists are totally ignorant of the rich history of metaphysical ideas that flourished in past centuries -- ideas that, once, motivated men to turn to science for answers. By denying the ontological argument, the atheist implicitly asserts that he believes something else is true about the material world and beyond. But the ontological argument for cosmology, properly understood, is never isolated simply to answering the narrowly defined question of how the universe came into existence; it always answers the larger question of how everything came into existence *and continues to exist* in all its multitudinous facets. So, when atheists dismiss the argument that God created all things, they only address half the argument. The other half is: how does everything that exists now, continue to exist from moment to moment? How does the universe remain 'together'? Christians argue from scripture that God created *and sustains* the universe; the two acts go hand in hand -- creating and sustaining. (Deists, on the other hand, argue for the 'Divine Clockmaker,' who creates the universe and then walks away from it, since it's now self-running. In other words, they acknowledge the necessity for a Prime Mover, but deny the necessity of a 'Prime Sustainer.' But that's not the biblical view). Atheists don't have a coherent answer to the second half of the ontological argument for cosmology. They don't know what to do with the laws that bind the universe together, ensuring its coherence, moment by moment. Most atheistic scientists completely ignore these laws when a discussion of cosmology arises, like you've just done. You assert that atheism isn't a belief system. But you believe everything came into existence and continues to exist without a Creator. That is your cosmological system. You have an idea of how the universe continues to exist as it is. (By the way, thank you for providing the dictionary definition of a system. It helps with my argument at this point). How do you account for the laws that bind nature to follow a consistent pattern? Why do we have order and not chaos. Christians know that God is the One who holds all things together.

+Nicholas (1) Everything had to come from something. Material phenomenon never appears out of nowhere. (2) What are your academic credentials?
Nicholas
Nicholas 20 kun oldin
The assertion that atheism isn't a belief system only works if you know what atheism is and what a system is. How can the rejection of a single claim on a single proposition be a system? system /ˈsɪstəm/ noun 1. a set of things working together as parts of a mechanism or an interconnecting network; a complex whole. 2. a set of principles or procedures according to which something is done; an organized scheme or method. Maybe you can explain how atheism is a belief system? And you know that Gervaise has a degree in philosophy, right? Not a very good one, but do you have one at all? And how would knowledge of apologetics help Stephen?

Not everything does have order. In fact the entire universe is heading to entropic heat death. Ecosystems don't have order, they have balance. Those that don't, die out. It is the weak anthropic principle. Life and DNA evolved. As did morality. There is plenty of work on the evolution of morality in social species. Maybe you should read some? More to the point, how exactly do you think "God did it" is a solution to your problem?
