Religion:

 

If even one is wrong, does that make them all wrong?

 

I don't pretend to have an answer to this question , which made me wonder, does anyone?

 

All the "Old Gods" have so few believers, the number is pretty much 0, does this mean they vanished in a puff of apathy?

 

The "One God" has many followers, locked in a seemingly endless battle of dogma, trying to prove they follow him best, what the heck is that about?

 

I have more questions, but I think this is enough for one day.

 

I am eager for your views, let the games commence...

Oh, life is bigger
It's bigger
Than you and you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I've said too much
I set it up

If there is a god I don't think he gives a damn about this corner of the universe.

I believe there are signs of intelligent design everywhere that we consciously ignore and chalk up to coincidence or other factors. 

I don't know why that statement in and of itself, tied into no specific theology - is so triggering to so many people. If you have that much FAITH and devotion to your LACK of faith - it starts to look incredibly similar to theist faith, from my perspective - in practice. 

Beyond that though - I think the questions at the top - people want simple binary "true/false" answers to those questions. 

But we've got 2000 years of recorded history, tens of thousands or more of LOST history before that, and mankind INTERPRETING scriptures and documents through a veil of ignorance and bias that entire time. 

So... it is no wonder it is a confusing mess.

Man's interpretation of God's word has ruined religion.

I remain convinced that God was made in man's image

I don't believe that....

People are inherently selfish creatures. We'd have made a God that encouraged our selfishness.

I believe that there is something larger than us, but not a god.  We are just too small to see it.

 

OR... Our universe might be in a petri dish.
