I Wonder Why People Believe In Some Things They Can't See, But Not Others...

As I get older, I am questioning things more and more...becoming again like a five year old constantly asking why? why? I was watching a science documentary about the universe. It really got me thinking. There exists that question about if God created the universe. The debate about this has been going on between science and religion for years. I am more inclined to agree with science at this point in my life. This is because with science there exists an explanation to almost everything questioned...with more proof and research than anything. Whereas religion is merely having faith and believing blindly. I don't necessarily want to say that I do or don't believe in God. But if God has never been seen is it any more unreasonable to believe in unicorns or a phoenix. Just because they are not seen, doesnt mean they don't exist. Everyone must believe in something, have faith. But we are always the ones who dictate what is and what is not ok by our standards, to be determined if it is accepted by God. Hence, the people that kill and murder all in the name of their Lord. Religion is usually accommodated to fit the individual. There is always only the moral issue with oneself.

My blind faith and belief at this time is with the universe. As vast and powerful as "God" can be. I believe certain things are already written for us. There must always be balance...good and bad, dark and light. Which partly explains why good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people. I have faith that the power and emotion, the love and negativity on this planet are all useful for some reason. What we know in all the years we have studied is like a grain of sand on a very large beach. We can be capable of so much and have to much to learn as a human race. I pray that we eventually evolve into the human beings that we were always meant to become. Peaceful, loving, kind and extremely aware and intelligent.

Watched a video you may like? Deals with Consciouness.......

I might add this whole creator of the universe believe or not believe does not mean you have to believe in "little old guy in mud puddle making chickens, goats and pigs"

A friend of mine is an Aramaic scholar. He worked on the Dead Sea Scrolls and said the glyph for Day is actually used for day, month and eon, with eon being the most likely meaning.

Now ask a bible jockey: "If the world was created in 6 days, this is a miracle, right?" They'll agree. Then tell them about the glyph and say: "So if the world was created in 6 billion years, it would no longer be a miracle? If God created a universe in which life rises up out of lifeless material and then is able to evolve and adapt to an every changing universe that would also NOT be a miracle? Only little guy sitting in a mud puddle making different life forms is miraculous?"

Then ask them if they believe in selling daughters into slavery (think that is Exodus) and ****** (Lot) offering daughters up for ********* (Lot again)
because those are in the Bible, so they must believe them as well.

Great Post!~ "We can be capable of so much" .............absolutely! We need the balance like you say...........

Might I offer an interesting ponder?<br />
<br />
God and the Universe are inseparable. This is the All-Nothing which is always the same-never the same and indistinguishable.<br />
<br />
When one descends to the level of manifestation of god. Then we have God-Goddess and Devil-Demoness.<br />
<br />
I will hold that the Bible is indeed written by the Devil and while it possesses many of the truths of the God Goddess, its intent is to harm and confuse.<br />
<br />
Point one: There is a Father with no mother<br />
2 There are thousands of sexual prohibitions<br />
3 There are things like God sanctioned gang bangs (see Lot)<br />
4 God sanctioned ****** (see Lot again)<br />
5 Slaughtering of children for being playfully rude<br />
6 god approved selling of daughters into slavery<br />
<br />
Christ talks about love and that he brings Love, but the church turns this into Non-sexual love<br />
Christ's marriage at Canna is told but the fact it was his marriage is obscured, but talk to any Jew about Mother Mary's knowledge that the party was running out of wine, and this is clear evidence that SHE was the hostess.<br />
<br />
I will add Paul's statement, "He loved her more than us, and frequently kissed her on the mouth." Not something casually done by rabbis now or then. Additionally, Rabbis are all married.<br />
<br />
The CHURCH demands blind faith.<br />
The church tells you only they speak to god, or decide who has spoken to god.<br />
And while they preach one thing they support another.<br />
They use fear as one of their great tools.<br />
<br />
The sell a totally non-sexual spiritual world.<br />
Talk of 'higher and lower' spirituality, while shuffling ********* priests here and there to get fresh children to have sex with.<br />
<br />
They have clear definition of marriage and a man's responsibilities to society, wife and children, but then elevate a Rapturist who Abandoned job, wife and children to wander in desert for 40 years. Apparently it is saintly to abandon your wife and children.<br />
<br />
Look at this elegant intricate universe and you think enlightenment takes wandering in the desert for 40 years?<br />
<br />
If "God" created man and woman in his own image (hence there is a God-Goddess), then one must only look at two things both in the female to see we were designed to be sexual.<br />
<br />
First: Breasts, no other mammal has breasts all the time in the female. This does not have anything to do with their function as mammary glands to feed infants. In humans breasts are more sexual and men are sexually stimulated by breasts.<br />
<br />
second: hidden estrus and ability to have sex on command. Only two animals on the planet share this. Humans and our closest genetic match the Bonobo Chimpanzee. All one needs to do is see the Bonobos in the wild, who btw do not war and share sex all the time, to see how humans SHOULD act.<br />
<br />
However, our religions are designed to divide us, to separate us from others because THEY worship the WRONG God, and we are told in so many words to Fix them by converting, or killing or a mixture of those two; the Inquisition was a very 'spiritually enlightened' period in church history.<br />
<br />
Notice in general all other religions do a similar thing.<br />
<br />
Finally, a clue to the God-Goddess mind can be seen in the Story of Adam and Eve.<br />
<br />
Do NOT eat of the Fruit of the Tree of the KNOWLEDGE of Good & Evil.<br />
<br />
Before they eat of this fruit Adam and Eve are naked and happy in the garden. After they eat they are Ashamed of their nakedness, cover themselves and hid from God, who KICKS them out of the garden.<br />
<br />
Clearly, God likes us naked and god is pissed we are ashamed of our nakedness and sexuality.<br />
<br />
The church encourages us to feel ashamed. <br />
<br />
Think of how many times some Bible thumper screamed out about Sin and the Devil. It is the focus of their talks. And Only Jesus AS THEY decide who Jesus is can save you scum-filled, pus-bag, rotten to the core, sinful ones who think about Sex and fornication. These are devil worshipers wearing the disguise of holy men-wolves in sheep's clothing (I mean no disrespect to wolves here just using a metaphor)<br />
<br />
Given that we are designed or better still Divinely Created to be Sexual Beings in God-Goddess image it is far more likely the True Rapture is the sexual ******. Given women can take men 3 at a time and capable of dozens upon dozens of ******* in a single session, they are likely "more spiritual" than we men.... but we men have a duty to assist them in their spiritual enlightenment whenever and as often as we can.<br />
<br />
thus endeth this part of the sermon.

Well put. . I agree with everything you've said! . . I believe if there's a God, it lies somewhere between science and faith &belief. . I really enjoyed reading your story. . I've also been questioning things more and more 'like a child', as I grow older. . <br />
Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
