I think we've established in the above comments that we typically act as though whatever religion is most dominant in our region is the one we treat as the only one.

Not really sure why there is more than one religion anyway, if there is a God, I think he would make his rules apply to everyone the same way. If that makes sense.

Much like te Native Americans and spirits. But it all still stemmed from needing an explanation for the te unknown.

Arrogance is the hallmark of religion? That sounds pretty ignorant.

The teaching of the early church included earth being at the centre of the universe, we were the only system, things moved because they had a definite location (smoke rises because it's from the air, rocks fell because they're from Earth) and many other scientific inaccuracies. And these were not, "This is how we think this works." this was "This is how things work because that's how god makes it work." And beyond science the overall morality of early Christianity was barbaric to say the least.

Give me any sort of thing that the church has tried to explain through god and I'll give you a scientific reason for how it happened. Other than stuff like "Jesus walked on water" because there is no proof of that ever occurring other than the bible. And you can't use the book you are referring to as a viable source for itself.

Actually by travelling to the past you would instantly change the past slightly this creating an alternate universe. Though you would change the future as you know it the future of that universe may not have been on the same path as the one you came from.

I've never found fear in death. Most fear is derived from not knowing what a situation will be like. But nothingness is nothingness and will simply be nothing. Before I was born I was in no way upset/happy/scared/loved. Death will be the same and to me I will have never existed. Because I know this I make sure to enjoy it while I can.

They believe in different saviours because they needed a change. I mentioned that.

Yes and no. I've been thinking it for a while because any time there's a religious debate, Atheist always talk about the flaws in the bible but never the other books and on the flip side of that Christians always try to use their book to prove their point. The latter makes more sense but their are still obvious similarities between them that could actual benefit the religious side of the debate if used properly.

Or, and I'm just growing this out there. Thousands of years ago there was a very clearl night sky with unexplainable objects filling it. Some of these objects made shapes to look like people and animals. We began to notice that these celestial beings would travel across the sky throughout the year and some would only appear when it was cold or when it rained a lot or anything like that. So naturally we began to blame these happenings on the beings in the sky. Gods, we called them. Gods could do anything so of course we should worship and praise them. They had powers far beyond our own and we were here because of them and for them. Eventually these gods, like pizza, were no longer pleasing and needed to be changed to fill the gaping hole that used to be purpose and meaningfulness. So in natural human order we adopted new ways of living by changing the way things act for us instead of how we act towards things. Even though nothing truly changed other than our perception of it the change was so dramatic that these old gods were looked at as jokes and laughable creatures. However our current ones must obviously be true because we can just feel it and we just know.

I'm pretty sure I know why there's more than one religion. The same reason there's more than type of pizza. After humans created the first one it eventually wasn't satisfying enough and they had to change and alter it to be more suited to their taste.

Where I'm from, people need to stop acting like Islam is the only religion. That's just me, I guess.

Makes sense. I wish I could change this to "Atheist need to realise" but I guess Atheist probably only bring up Islam where ever you're from.

But we ARE looking and doing work to find them. I hope they're not more intelligent that us, or else we wouldn't be able to combat them if we needed to.

Although most human history suggest otherwise it is possible to find a less advanced civilisation and not kill or enslave them.

Here’s my view on all the money we’re spending to find life in space: Either there are aliens, or there aren’t. If there aren’t then we’re wasting quite some money. If there are there are two options again, they’re smarter than us or they’re dumber than us. If they’re dumber than us I don’t really wanna get in contact with them, and if they’re smarter than us they’ll find us before we find them…

It's actually one of the few things I can respect. I understand how people can believe in A god. Just not any modern day gods. There's too much evidence against them.

Also this is not an appropriate post for a religious debate (if that's what this is called.) If you'd like to continue feel free to message me.
