If there’s a god and he’s all good, then he’s not all powerful. If there’s a god that’s all powerful, then he’s not all good.
Yep, so true. Delusion is 1000% real.Yes, God is 100% real. I can understand why people don't think so because I was an atheist. When you try to approach it through reason, or through the dictation of other people you can at most meme yourself into believing he exists, but it's just a facade you create for cultural group identification, a shibboleth. But I did "see" him. And it was more real than anything else, undeniably. When you trust your eyes and ears over the words and credence of others, and have faith in your own intuition.
I think the only way to find out for yourself and "know" he is real, not just pretend to believe it, is through intuition and introspection. Everything that lies beyond the physical cannot be grasped as a complete picture by rationality alone.
this is how i see it:I am torn by this question. Life has been almost unbearable to live. It makes me question if I am ignored by God, or if an ultimate superior figure exists at all.
I grew up in a religious household, and I did, in my younger age, believe that a benevolent, loving God exists. I thought of God everyday. I saw God in nature, in my friendships, in my familial relationships. Chalk it up to childlike naivety and innocence, but I will never forget that feeling of blessedness.
As I got older, I became more jaded and stopped praying and reading the Al-Quran. I started to grow more depressed and unhappy with my circumstances. I currently feel that God is no longer a real part of my presence.
But, if you took my own experiences out of the scope and started to look for more abstract examples, how is it possible that a benevolent God exists alongside heinous crimes and events such as the holocaust, slavery, genocide, child abuse, and sex trafficking? If good cannot exist without evil, why is suffering the central point of life? Where is peace? Why is it that some people suffer more and feel less peace than others?
I hate my life. I want nothing more than to end it. But it pains me to think that I may go back to a God I feel ignored by every single day.
While I generally agree, that doesn't mean the God/God's do not exist, just that moat mythologies probably come from a common source. That source could exist, could be real, and over the years different interpretations of it have led to different mythologies.religion is nothing but an instrument to control people, the history of humanity proves that religion can't be real since current religions evolved from other religions, mixed themselves with other cultures and other myths, how can you claim your god is true when your religion is the result of another?
Saying that God might be real is fantasy, the bible contraddicts itself, as long as there's evil in this world God is either good or all powerful, not both, also the bible is full of references to myths from other religions like ancient greek gods and egyptian ones.While I generally agree, that doesn't mean the God/God's do not exist, just that moat mythologies probably come from a common source. That source could exist, could be real, and over the years different interpretations of it have led to different mythologies.
When I was younger, I thought this was the case with God. God might be real. But think modern interpretation of him are so far off that he might as well be a different entity all together.
I also don't really think that religion is this sort of grand scheme, creates purely to control. But it's definitely been hijacked and that's the purpose it serves.
I doubt we'll ever seen a downfall, until every human can find an answer to all of their questions, amd can find satisfaction in life. Theres a reason religion strives in many slaves, minorities, and other generally discriminated groups . It gives them answers and hope that can't be achieved in any other way. If needing that makes them weak minded, so be it.
If you want to get rid of religion, you need tp replace it with something else. And for a lot of people,there really isn't much else.
