I assume you are highly intelligent for chooseing athiesm and not a doctrine presented. I looked to philosophy. An great athiest, Jean-Paul Sartre. Existentialism is Humanism. http://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/sartre/works/exist/sartre.htm "But there is another sense of the word, of which the fundamental meaning is this: Man is all the time outside of himself: it is in projecting and losing himself beyond himself that he makes man to exist; and, on the other hand, it is by pursuing transcendent aims that he himself is able to exist. Since man is thus self-surpassing, and can grasp objects only in relation to his self-surpassing, he is himself the heart and center of his transcendence. There is no other universe except the human universe, the universe of human subjectivity. This relation of transcendence as constitutive of man (not in the sense that God is transcendent, but in the sense of self-surpassing) with subjectivity (in such a sense that man is not shut up in himself but forever present in a human universe) – it is this that we call existential humanism. This is humanism, because we remind man that there is no legislator but himself; that he himself, thus abandoned, must decide for himself; also because we show that it is not by turning back upon himself, but always by seeking, beyond himself, an aim which is one of liberation or of some particular realisation, that man can realize himself as truly human. " But this was the beginning. From there I went to science. Quantums physics. Entaglement, decoherance. Ultimatly I found "God". It is not what people tell you. You wont know untill you put the effort in to find it. But if you feel a force with in, tearing everything down, it is a humbling to seek the truth. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s42mrdhKwRA[/youtube] This course took me years to come to the conclussion. I went through horrors of war, and self distruction to understand that the world, and everything in it is designed to become self aware of the source of you. Nothing else. Keep seasching, and disrgard everything beyond yourself. Your intuition is your guide. Christians call it the holy ghost, I call it the entagled energy of life interacting with your quantum mind. It all comes from the Sun, and is dispersed through all life, originating from one point beyond time and consciousness. [/quote] Could I extrapolate this to say that you believe God exists in all of us and is not an omnipotent being who will ultimately "judge" us? Is our "God" the pineal gland and DMT?:secrets: [/quote] It's why the above is not a complete answer, only that it's possible that the pineal gland is a repository for the soul. The soul is not God. The soul is being which inhabits the body. God is defined as BEING (see what that means in philosophy). We simply are beings who exist, not EXISTENCE itself, and therefore not God. [/quote] I wasn't asking you DBA -- I was asking the AC. BTW, I meant to put the God in quotes in the first sentence. You believe what you want. Did you watch the video or understand the post I was responding to, and video within? [/quote] Oh I know. I was just commenting on the dialogue between you. Yes I listened to the video. I understand what you're saying and even agree with you. The person in the video is a Pantheist. Forgive the succint way I explain it, but they believe that we are consciousness and that God is the Universe and so we are aspects of the Universe as beings, and so we are aspects of God. I disagree. That would be like saying that the bacteria E coli in our digestive system is God or us, and that's not true from a scientific or philosophical argument. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escherichia_coli a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pantheism [/quote]
I'm an Atheist. Why should I believe in a god? Which god? and why?
I'm considering god, but need a rational reason to actually believe. I would never take blind faith, as you could end up in any religion just dependant on the influence around you.
Anyway, I'm searching, but need a rational way to decide.
