LoboI'm an atheist. I want to tell you what I think. God =man made concept....... In the earlier stages of mankind some people became greedy, they started to cheat, lie, even killed others, etc etc... The elder people worried and they wanted a way by which they can put an end to this. Someone intelligent would have come up with this brilliant idea. An idea that would change and even restrict the way people think and behave for centuries to come. And that was the concept of God. Heaven and hell followed... They started telling stories about God and rules which everyone should follow. They also said that if someone does not obey these rules will be sent to hell where they will be put in boiling oil etc etc. Very few people of that generation might have not bilieved this. But the following generations were thought of God from the childhood. This created the fear of god in the minds of the people. Eventually most of the people feared of God and they built that fear of someone watching them from above and stopped lieing, killing etc etc..The elder people had achieved what they wanted, they had instilled God in everyone's mind. People living in isolation and different parts of the world created different theories so we can see there are differences in biliefs, Gods etc. By the way my parents , school, college and other documents say I'm a christian. But I think I do not belong to any religion. Heavon is here, on the earth. So is hell. Everyone has goodness and evillness. One who overcomes this evillness within him/her is 'God', one who loves everyone is God, one who know how to forgive is God, atleast I think so! I do not intend to hurt someone or their beliefs. All these opinions are completely my own. I'm really sorry if I have hurt someone unintessionally.
Interesting, Lobo.

But let me ask you a few questions about that.

If people had God just invented to be able to keep evilness away, why would they have brought up the concept with forgiveness?

How could you possibly put a pattern with the complexity of God in people's minds? No matter how long back in the time it was, it is impossible.

If some friends and I just invented something not even have as complex as God and tried to tell that people, it would never last so long. Why should people just think something, there would be no evidence.

"Hey, did you know right there in that corner is a box." "I can't see it." "I know, but it is there, trust me." Who would believe this so strongly that he/she told it his/her children?
Actually George W. Bush is NOT responsible for thousands of unnecessary deaths. The war in Iraq was and is a very important war. Sadam was supporting terrorst groups, e.g. the ones who committed 9/11, he was devoloping weapons of mass distruction, they found them, but not the stockpiles because he gave the stockpiles to syria. He torchered woman, children, men, babies. He is a sick monster who needed to be stopped. If you would have seen the piles of bodies that he had murdered that I saw you would disagree that the deaths that took out sadam were unnecessary. We need Iraq to be a democracy. By having them as a democracy, it will help stablize that already very unstable area in the world. Before Iraq can be stable it has to go though this turmoil. The soldiers over there will tell you that the war is going very well, the liberal media over here will tell you how terrible it's going. I choose to believe the people who are over there, not some biased media pawn.

Thanks for your interest....

>>If people had God just invented to be able to keep evilness away, why would they have brought up the concept with forgiveness?

I think its because of the fact that one can not be punished by someone who doesn't even exist!

It is in human nature to think, I have done a mistake and I'm going to be punished in the end for all my mistake, misdeeds, then it doesn't matter if I indulge in some more... But if someone tells him/her that he/she has been forgiven that time and will not be punished...There is a chance that he/she might think twice before doing something like that again.

Forgiveness is the ultimate and it rose before 'God' did. You can see forgiveness in every religion. But it is sad that its only there in religious books, theories not in practice.

What are we going to achieve by just reading something, not practicing!

>>How could you possibly put a pattern with the complexity of God in people's minds?

The complexities it has can make it very confusing and make someone believe even without understanding it! You have to note that I'm talking about the people who lived here thousands of years ago. A brilliant speaker can make such things happen and earth has seen many of them.

>> No matter how long back in the time it was, it is impossible!

Even now you can make people believe patterns of greater complexities than that of 'God'. Don't believe me...think of Benny Hin, Saayi Baba, just a few examples you can get thousands...

>>Why should people just think something, there would be no evidence.

I want answer for this question! Why should I believe something, there would be no evidence.

One thing can answer all this and many more about 'God'......

When and How Did This Universe Begin?
If you don't see it does not mean either, whether it does exist or it doesn't. Religion and all the believes of the kind are what the word implies, simply 'believes'. Religion is a subjective matter, and there is nothing you can say, even if it is true to convince anyone outside yourself. Religion is personal, if only people would just stop trying to tell others that their views are the "holy truth", we would certainly stop having so much trouble, religion brings all sort of troubles, even racism.

I remember Bush saying after the 11 of september 2001 attack on New York that: "They have attacked the nation of God" ... Come on, where have you seen a 'nation of God' that has caused so many deaths in so many places, in the name of "profit". It was just used to infuriate people. The protestant christian "Jihad", such hypocrisy in the name of religion.

Keep religion to yourself, read all sorts of books, you could also listen to others if you choose so, but no one holds the truth. See inside yourself. I personally reject others trying to tell me that by following their believes "I'd be saved". All religion knowledge really comes from within yourself, and sometimes when you hear or read something out there it only confirms that knowledge you have there already, kind of awakes it. So I think. But like you and you too, I could be wrong, so why listen to me! ...
Hey L,

First of all, according to what you have written in your first post of this page.

>>This created the fear of god in the minds of the people. >>Eventually most of the people feared of God and they built that fear of someone watching them from above and stopped lieing, killing etc etc..

If that were true people would not love God, people would be scarded of God. It would rather be like the master concept: You have to behave or you will have a bad after life/life.

Second,

>>I think its because of the fact that one can not be punished by someone who doesn't even exist!

So, you are saying, that forgiveness was needed because people would have come and said: "X murdered! Why doesn't God punish him/her?" (So, if God didn't exist, they would have a problem.)

>>A brilliant speaker can make such things happen and earth has seen many of them.

Yes, for example Aristoteles, who told that the Earth was round.

This is the primary situation that Americans should care about; however, no correlation has been found between Hussein and the acts of 9/11. I almost wish there was one, but there isn't.

Anonymous , he was devoloping weapons of mass distruction, they found them, but not the stockpiles because he gave the stockpiles to syria. He torchered woman, children, men, babies.

I agree that Saddam's a monster. There are, unfortunately, plenty of them to go around in the world. The problem is that Saddam has been out of power in Iraq for a long time now, and Americans still seem to be far from leaving.

Two of my family members are currently in Iraq. What you're saying here simply isn't true. It's a FOX news soundbite.

Yeah! Rupert Murdoch's FOX and his other 'news' organisations seem to get their stories from some parallel world, not the one we know.
His corporate name is telling; News Limited.

Though they do make a sincere effort to present the news as "fair and balanced." Lol.
