    In my humble opinion there is no God. There is no particular "reason" why were here. We just are and thats it. One day everyone of us will be rotting in the earth no matter who we think runs the big show.

    I guess we all struggle to rationalize those facts in different ways(god, buddha, math, bull****ting). The end result remains the same. Worms eating the brain.

    Have a good one.

        I thought we were on the objective subject of God. This isn't something as solid as throwing a rock out a window. The whole, "If you believe it, it's true" is not a universal law that applies to all things...

          I personally bounced from atheist to agnostic many times.... Now, I really don't care, I try to live my life to what morals I believe in. If this appeases the gods, so be it.

            logic is at least in theory a universal thing that applies to all things. or i should say, a tool that can and should be used in all situations, especially when dealing with such big questions as god.

            anyway i was using the example to reflect something about the human mind rather than some correlation between a rock and god. the human mind is capable of coming to honest conclusions about things. when it comes to god, it seems that everything in life conspires to keep that from happening - upbringing, TV - but that doesn't mean it's impossible.

              Either way, our logic isn't the same.. how we deduct can not be imperical, but rather intrinsic on how we think, in which, you must realize that we are all different. Therefore, there is no right way to discuss a godly figure.. especially when we can't agree to a definition of what is a god... And since this is the case.. there is a lot of underlying conversations that must arise.

                it's not enough to leave it at "everyone's logic is different". a single person's logic is basically the product of ideas competing in his own mind to yield an idea that holds up to whatever criticisms he can manage to come up with. the more criticisms of an idea that he can come up with without finding an idea false or meaningless, you can say, the better his logic will be.

                so when you have a lot of people involved in a debate, it's basically a big human brain. ideas compete, and the idea that can hold up to the most criticism without being falsified, or discovered to be meaningless, is (theoretically) eventually adopted by the rest of the population. this obviously isn't how it works immedaitely, but over time, and with enough people questioning a certain idea, it more or less does. for instance, almost no one today believes that the earth is flat. people in america generally believe that whites are not superior to blacks. most people in the western world believe that evolution took place. it's a slow process and there's a science to it, memetics i think it's called.

                the end result is that knowledge is disseminated throughout a population, much like the brain comes to a conclusion, which thereby better equips the population to deal with a certain issue. this is the good that can come out of debate. hell, it might even be the reason that the need to argue seems to be ingrained in humans.

                anyway, i guess my point is, everyone's logic is different, but (almost) everyone's logic can change, and that's why a healthy debate of these things is necessary. meaning that, when someone puts forward an idea which does not hold up to a particular criticism you can think of, you ought to tell them, and explain why. unless you're too tired, or hung over.

                  If TV is choosing sides, you might as well give up and call it impossible.

                  I'll get back to this soon.
