Okay I'll give a serious answer now.

Growing up and learning about God, if you're educated enough then you'll question your religion, you will see the faults, the cracks and the chinks in the armour. You'll see the hypocrisy and you'll hear about some evil, it's contradictory, it's a big leap of faith and too many people it has been brainwashing. As a believer though, I think the best kind of worship is seeing this and finding God your own way. This is sort of "Spiritualism". I don't know what I believe or disbelieve about God. I don't know if I think Jesus was the "son of man" or not. I don't know if the Judeo Christian God is real or not, all I know is that I do believe in a God, something similar to the images he has been dictated as in different religions.

I've always thought we've been born with some kind of innate knowledge of a God and humoured it over the years. I think that's why there are so many religions, so many people trying to explain this image and only getting it half right. Bottom line is, God's biggest enemy can be religion. You can believe in God without being religious, you can find him in your own way and worship him in your own way. But you don't need God for purpose or morality. Ultimately everything is pointless if you go back far enough. Do we really have a purpose if their is a God, what purpose would he/she have? So on and so fourth. You make purpose on Earth for yourself, just as we no longer need God for that or morality. As Socrates is quoted saying in one of Plato's works, "is an act good because God commands it or does God command it because it's good?".

You could just make stuff up if it will help you feel better. That's pretty much the basis of religion today anyway, when most completely disregard all the stuff God did in the Old Testament (bar those Phelp Fundies)

These are just fiction books, which for some reason have attained great power. There's no reason to take the bible any more seriously than, say the Da Vinci Code.

I don't know, The Da Vinci Code's prose seems a bit richer to me. It's also one engaging story, whereas The Bible is a bunch disparate tales that try to have one common theme. I think The Bible dropped the ball on a lot of the stories.

Oh and The Odyssey is much, much better than The Bible.

I've always felt Greek/Roman style paganism of petty warring godlings makes soooooo much more sense than the whole judeo christian all good, all knowing and all powerful god.

Zeus is no more petty than Yahweh. The only difference really is that Yahweh doesn't fuck his creations, well not as wantonly at least.

Yahweh is NOT like Brahman either. It tries to be, but the authors that made up Yahweh didn't properly comprehend the concept of Brahman.

LOL, me too! I'd rather believe there are people like us that have the ability to be invisible and immortal that our religion tells us to respect than the all mighty, flawless single God figure.

Draw the line between Jesus and God, yeah? Jesus helps you get to the good place, God judges you and pisses in your face if you defy him. Jesus died for your sins, so you can repent and have a line, but you've gotta mean it.

For those who wonder, no, I'm not a religious man. I just believe in things.


But I was raised religious, mormon to be precise. Then I just worked out my own thing. best thing about Mormon people? They dont take their religion as seriously.

Every Mormon I've ever known takes their religion more seriously than any other religious person I've met. Which is weird because Mormonism is one of the more far fetched denominations of Christianity around. My anecdotal evidence doesn't prove anything though. This I realize.
