I've said it all along...in an ideal world religion would brings some peace and have everyone behave, but that's not the case,religion is the reason for so much violence and killing sadly, good on those who do practice their religion in peace and preach peace, but that is not the bigger picture or the reality.

Maybe when some try to understand those who have very good reason to have little or no faith,mthen a better understanding of non believers can be achieved.

If 'god = energy' with no added powers or conciousness I might just believe in god, but energy alone isn't how I define god nor would others.

We can of course observe the visible universe and have an idea of what is going on and the movement of galaxies implies the big bang happened, though I agree there are limitations, but these are readily acknowledged by scientists so there is no arrogance.

our idea of energy is based on what we as humans know of energy, which when we again consider that we don't even inhabit a speck of dust in comparison to the scale of the universe, i would say that our knowledge is pretty limited  

yes we can have a look and try to understand it but our understanding is limited, and even though this is acknowledged, the arrogance comes into it when the scientific atheists say "we have no idea how it happened but it definitely WASN'T god"

Because God as we understand Him (and in all mainstream religious it is quite explicitly a 'Him') is a VERY human construct. It is a human idea of trying to understand how we got here which is pretty clearly based on a serious lack of any scientific understanding of the world thousands of years ago (though even ancient Greek philosophers had doubts about 'gods'). It isn't necessarily scientific to just rule out a possibility, and there is always a shred of it in any case; but God is an assertion without any evidence, so as 'hypotheses' go, it is a pretty weak one.

That's your opinion, but I don't get why it matters to you if people are mindless sheep or not.

Because mindless sheep have a nasty habit of doing nasty things they probably wouldn't do if they'd stop being sheep and think once in a while; sheeple think they are perfectly within in their rights, due their ancient rule books to- mutilate their children's genitals, treat women as second class citizens (to the point of even controlling how they dress), to fordin contraception and abortion, discriminate against gay people, make claims to geographical areas, blow themselves up along with many others...

Most religious people I know wouldn't do any of those things.

What do you mean by "fordin contraception and abortion"?

The amount of priests and other holy figures who have been involved in sexual mole station of kids is shocking,they must be very convincing to get into those sorts of jobs.

When it comes to the subject of faith and religion on forums, most of the hatred is directed towards people with faith, and yet those same people tend to complain of the hatred of religious people towards others.

You think it's God's fault those children are disabled?

For example, thalidomide was developed by man - so it was science which caused some children to be born without proper limbs.

That's just the pint...I don't believe in God and neither does KD, it's people's insensitivity which pisses him and me off by others saying there is a God and how he works miracles as well as bad things...

Religion should be practised in private or with others who are also religious, not force fed to others who do not believe.

What insensitivity? People with faith can't cure those children, so why are you having a go at them because those children are disabled? If you don't believe in God, you have to blame nature or science don't you? There's not much point in blaming nature, so perhaps you should blame science.

Thing is mate, I've know this one to laugh at many racist comments made by a poster named Trapezerjohn, laugh at disabled kids, and stand and say nothing when Stooo and Curious and Vicky on Dogs have made vile accusations that folk are paedophiles.

I'm sorry , Ben won't like this...but a real bad egg this one.

I think many people feel the need for some sort of spiritual fulfillment, and it's a shame that so many (if not most) of the religions available are full of contradictions and just flat-out insult your intelligence.

I'd have a far easier time accepting the Christian god if it wasn't taught, for example, that Hitler could go to Heaven for believing but that somebody like me could go to Hell just for finding it impossible to believe.

I have replied with this answer in another thread , God of the bible does not see any level of sin , sin is sin to God and because God forgives all sins if we confess them then he has to be faithful and forgive us no matter what it is we have done. Hebrews 8:12  I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins & their iniquities will I remember no more.
I think we all want God to be a fair God (if we are genuinely searching for God) , imagine if you murdered someone and then had a chance to become a Christian but there was no way God would accept you because you were a murderer , that wouldn't be fair would it because you really want to believe and really want to be forgiven . This is why God forgives all sins so everyone can repent . It doesn't matter how as a person you or I feel about someone who has committed murder sadly to say even Hitler , but even if Hitler genuinely out of guilt and regret asked God for forgiveness and truly meant it then God would have to forgive him and accept him because its God's promise and God cannot go back on his word. I know exactly what you mean about Hitler because he was one of the most evil men alive and what he did doesn't bare thinking about , but because we have a God who is a forgiving God he forgives all who wholeheartedly repent and seek him .

Oh right. That would be the Catholic Church, yes? People are free to leave that Church if they want to use contraception or have an abortion.

It's not apparent all the time in real life - except for the stuff you read in the papers. There are bound to be extremists in any religion.

I know exactly what you mean about Hitler because he was one of the most evil men alive and what he did doesn't bare thinking about , but because we have a God who is a forgiving God he forgives all who wholeheartedly repent and seek him .
Hitler’s involvement with the Church:

a) Hitler was baptized as Roman Catholic during infancy in Austria.

b) As Hitler approached boyhood he attended a monastery school. (On his way to school young Adolf daily observed a stone arch which was carved with the monastery’s coat of arms bearing a swastika.)

c) Hitler was a communicant and an altar boy in the Catholic Church.

d) As a young man he was confirmed as a “soldier of Christ.” His most ardent goal at the time was to become a priest. Hitler writes of his love for the church and clergy: “I had excellent opportunity to intoxicate myself with the solemn splendor of the brilliant church festivals. As was only natural, the abbot seemed to me, as the village priest had once seemed to my father, the highest and most desirable ideal.” -Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)

e) Hitler was NEVER excommunicated nor condemned by his church. Matter of fact the Church felt he was JUST and “avenging for God” in attacking the Jews for they deemed the Semites the killers of Jesus.

f) Hitler, Franco and Mussolini were given VETO power over whom the pope could appoint as a bishop in Germany, Spain and Italy. In turn they surtaxed the Catholics and gave the money to the Vatican. Hitler wrote a speech in which he talks about this alliance, this is an excerpt: “The fact that the Vatican is concluding a treaty with the new Germany means the acknowledgement of the National Socialist state by the Catholic Church. This treaty shows the whole world clearly and unequivocally that the assertion that National Socialism [Nazism] is hostile to religion is a lie.” Adolf Hitler, 22 July 1933, writing to the Nazi Party

Hitler and the Popeg) Hitler worked CLOSELY with Pope Pius in converting Germanic society and supporting the church. The Church absorbed Nazi ideals and preached them as part of their sermons in turn Hitler placed Catholic teachings in public education. This photo depicts Hitler with Archbishop Cesare Orsenigo, the papal nuncio in Berlin. It was taken On April 20, 1939, when Orsenigo celebrated Hitler’s birthday. The celebrations were initiated by Pacelli (Pope Pius XII) and became a tradition.

Each April 20, Cardinal Bertram of Berlin was to send “warmest congratulations to the Fuhrer in the name of the bishops and the dioceses in Germany with “fervent prayers which the Catholics of Germany are sending to heaven on their altars.” (If you would like to know more about the secret dealings of Hitler and the Pope I recommend you get a book titled: Hitler’s Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII, by John Cornwell)

h) Due to Hitler’s involvement with the Church he began enacting doctrines of the Church as law. He outlawed all abortion, raged a death war on all homosexuals, and demanded corporal punishment in schools and home. Many times Hitler addressed the church and promised that Germany would implement its teachings: “The National Socialist State professes its allegiance to positive Christianity. It will be its honest endeavor to protect both the great Christian Confessions in their rights, to secure them from interference with their doctrines (Lehren), and in their duties to constitute a harmony with the views and the exigencies of the State of today.” –Adolf Hitler, on 26 June 1934, to Catholic bishops to assure them that he would take action against the new pagan propaganda “Providence has caused me to be Catholic, and I know therefore how to handle this Church.” -Adolf Hitler, reportedly to have said in Berlin in 1936 on the enmity of the Catholic Church to National Socialism

yes happy to educate you again even though the evidence is there for all to see.

Hitler's world view was diametrically opposed to Christianity, for which Hitler had nothing but contempt. Hitler never attended church in Vienna, and some sources note that his greatest enemy--besides Marxists--was the Jesuits. One anonymous eyewitness reported that "Hitler said [c. 1912] the biggest evil for the German people was accepting Christian humility." (p. 250) Even though in Mein Kampf Hitler criticized Schönerer's anti-Catholic Los-von-Rom (Free from Rome) movement, during his time in Vienna Hitler was sympathetic to it. Hitler recognized that Schönerer's position had been a public relations fiasco, and thus a political blunder, so later he always shied away from publicly criticizing the Christian churches, despite his personal antipathy toward them.
