Right here. Never ever believed. I remember when you HAD to go to Church to get into a Catholic school (my parents consider themselves Catholic though they NEVER go to Church or pray or mention God ever) so I started going when I was like 7 and I remember the ridiculous fairytails the priest was telling and being really wide-eyed and shocked and looking around thinking "these people are fucking insane!"

"Alice found the whole thing quite amusing. She didn't know whether to laugh or cry, it was so absurd, but they all looked so grave that she did not dare laugh".

I'll change my mind if there's ever even a small but of evidence. I mean, there's no logic, evidence or proof that any of it is true. There's not anything to even suggest anything is real there, except from an old book that has been re-written, reworded and changed so much over the centuries it is almost nothing like it's origin at all.
If there is a God/Deity/Whatever, why did they let me get raped on my 13th birthday when I was a very innocent and naive kid. I may be an awful person and deserve things like that now, but I had done NOTHING wrong as a kid. Adults always described me as very good-natured and honest.
When we did the yearbook people had to say the biggest positive about you and the biggest negative. A guy came to me from the group and said "[insert name here], nobody has a bad word to say about you, what do YOU think we should put"?
I didn't deserve any of the shit that happened to me as a kid. If God or a deity does exist they're an asshole and have a lot of explaining to do when I die.

Yes, it is xD
I've got at least half a dozen really good quotes from that that relate to my eating disorder/addiction/BPD in different ways. Like, I used to think of "Life was so much simpler, thought poor Alice, when one wasn't always growing larger and smaller" when I had the eating disorders.

I believe in things ordinary people cannot see and many even deny.

So yes I do have faith.

Not in a Supreme Creator deity though.

Lol I am ordinary I mean I can't see what I believe I just am not a common doubter of the metaphysical.

Because these type of people are realist, they live in reality. Where these things will never exist. Because these type of people aren't bored because we have real things to worry about. Like.. what we gonna eat tonight, what we gonna do tonight, so on. These things don't require a logical person who lives in reality to think just to get the other one out of the fantasy that he's in, you can only make it out by yourself. You have to understand that if such things as "Afterlife'' would exist, then no one would be alive.
That is one way to see it.

I do know logical people of faith.

Are you saying you understand reality completely?

Interesting view of afterlife. So does that mean reincarnation exists?

I'm just curious what made people so sure that nothing else is one the other side & why you have NO faith in anything when we die.
I was once a Christian, and it was largely my drive to prove my religion true and to be unafraid to question the truth that ultimately led me to question religion entirely.

Now I'm curious what makes religious people so sure of an afterlife, and even what makes anyone assume that there is something to come after death. It seems a curious thing to me now, as there seems to be an assumption in supernatural existence despite not being able to detect with any of our senses, nor measure with any device, nor see any real evidence of it's existence- yet religious beliefs almost seem to be natural assumptions for many humans. I know when I was told I needed to "turn to god" when I was a misguided teen in an emotional crisis, it made sense to me despite not knowing what it even begins to mean.

Looking back, I didn't believe in religion because of overwhelming evidence, much of the opposite- believing in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary(or complete lack of evidence altogether). And the reality of religion, or any belief system that requires "faith" is that the same is true- belief in something despite lacking evidence or proof. It's the basis of all "faith" based beliefs, because if there were evidence there wouldn't be any use for faith.

Damn. You people have way more faith than I. I think these weird gods control parts of the Earth. It's not all black and white

See I don't think we are privileged enough to be alone, but we are alone in the sense that we have free will

The theory that different god's control different parts of the earth would make more sense and lend some credibility to it.allah:middle East,garnesh and Vishnu: India,Jesus: Europe and the western world,buddha: Tibet etc etc but not one of the organised religions tolerates the recognition of another god and Christianity and Catholicism downright
say there god created the world and anything else is wrong.so the chance of different god's with different parts of the world is a long shot.it makes sense but it just doesn't seem likely.
and the whole concept of a "god" just seems like a human construct.a way of explaining the unexplainable or the unimaginable.from god's actions and rules it sounds like god is a very hateful, spiteful intolerant human.not godlike at all.

They turned a hope to a faith because man is the most insecure and weak animal on the planet.

They are the many who let their tribal instinct override their view of reality.

That is the curse of supernatural thinking.

They will not tell their genocidal God that his morals are garbage.

Yes, with its limits.

As Socrates said, there is no freedom with his question. Who will make your shoes?

We are all in this together, alone.

I agree and put that theme in an O.P. on electing a god. I will post it soon.
