I Believe In Something More.

The human concept of god is irreconcilably flawed because it is a human concept. I don't believe in god, I'm not open to religion, but I belive that there's something bigger than us out there. I don't belive that there is some entity that created the universe but I think that somethings up. I see a dim flicker of light and it doesn't make any sense but it's there. I refuse to consider the alternative, or maybe I just don't like the idea of it all ending one day.

'EDIT' I don't believe I hope.

Exactly my point of view. <br />
Only that "believe" and "hope" are human concepts too lol. <br />
I do not use them either :). <br />
I am indescribable, and I know that this World IS MUCH MORE THAN WHAT THERE IS PRESENT AROUND ONLY.

You may be interested in reading the Dao De Jing (Tao te Ching) Youo might find it to be enlightening...

"Off topic, but does that mean all human knowledge is flawed?" We have limits that will stop us from ever really knowing. How can we understand something outside of ourselves, something beyond our experience? Our knowledge is based on reason derived from experience and applied to different subjects. We can't know that which is unknown.

I do believe human knowledge is flawed, remember illusions? Our brains like to fudge reality for us because it helped us survive. I am not sure that we can ever really know everything, it's like what I read somewhere, we're like fishes in the water, we'll never know that there is land.

No. I meant that as something that someone could posit. I am not angry about it. I meant it more as something someone could be angry about.

McAvoy, "(this economy sucks; it makes me angry) ask: why does it make you angry?" This is the foundation from which my intelligence stems. At all times I try to maintain an internal dialog with myself, an inner voice that constantly questions everything in my path.

"Human beings are a compilation of meat sack being held up by calcium sticks." This is the basis of the christian belief system(The Eternal Spirit).<br />
All religions pratice the same religion, their ideas are just worded differently. And they are all of the belief that their way is the only way and all must join them. It's all very self destructive.

good morning Isaac!,<br />

so basically in my brain/mind I am able to reconcile atheism and Buddhism. by that I mean that I don't believe in God or any sort of higher being. But we can control our own reactions to things. things like (this economy sucks; it makes me angry) ask: why does it make you angry? What can you do about it et cetera. such exercises are preparation for one's demise. <br />

I have in mind a very interesting quote I read in a book written by the Dalai Lama. "Human beings are a compilation of meat sack being held up by calcium sticks." How likely is a Christian to agree with that statement. some non-Christians wouldn't like it either, but I think it is true.

stormynightsky, exactly, the senses are to be trusted but only to a certain degree. Our desperate want for a meaning sometimes betrays us.

Out of great doubt can come either one of two things:<br />
<br />
<br />
Faith<br />
Or<br />
Unbelief<br />
<br />
I believe in something more too….<br />
I’ve found the answer to who it is.<br />

Human understanding is flawed. That's exactly why we can't believe only in what is seen.

"The human concept of god is irreconcilably flawed because it is a human concept" - that's absolutely what I keep trying to explain. Thanks for this! Off topic, but does that mean all human knowledge is flawed? Scratch that...another annoying question.<br />

"theory of consciousness in the universe that I read" - care to share :)?

Do you hope there is a God or that it doesn't all end one day? Everything has an end. Even the universe. There is a theory that the universe has already ended and has been reborn a countless number of times. Expanding outwardly until it reaches its limits and then folds in upon itself only to be reborn again.

Interesting. What you describe sounds a lot like a theory of consciousness in the universe that I read.
