They also don't have the moral compass that we do. It isn't cruel to hurt someone if you have no way of knowing that it's wrong. It becomes cruel when you are knowledgeable enough to know what you are doing and how it is wrong, and you continue to do it. It's also worth mentioning that you don't see deer constructing disgustingly clever torture devices to use on each other... (un)

Astrology is a cutesy thing that's fun to do. Nobody actually believes in it. I think it's kinda cool to look at what my "fortune" for the day is. Science is kinda boring, in my opinion. I wouldn't want to read about it in a newspaper column.

Key words, in your opinion. Newspapers are supposed to record current news. New stuff happening with science is news. Fake made up stuff no one believes in but for some reason thinks is fun isn't news.

Gay people SHOULD have rights, and it's because of conservatives and christians that they 'don't'. Didn't your Jesus say to love everyone?

This is actually such a good analogy. When you have the TV on, you're forced to mentally ingest a small, limited window of the world, contained in a carefully planned and edited program. There may be one type of show on now, but next year, some shows will be cancelled and new ones will appear, and 10 years from now, TV will be unrecognizable from what it is now, although somewhat similar. A person from one country will have a limited number of channels to choose from, a person from another country will watch another set of channels, and the best country may be able to broadcast their channels throughout other countries if they're influential enough and if the market is right.

Meanwhile, once you turn the television off, the entire world becomes your oyster. It may not be as immediately rewarding, but there is so much more to do and explore and get done. A TV show is carefully planned and edited, but the real world will seem much more random and meaningless. And simply not watching TV doesn't say much about you as a person. While everybody watching a particular TV episode is viewing the exact same material, people who turn the TV off are off doing all kinds of different things.

God could have created the properties you are amazed at. You are just as ignorant as a religious person right now (not that you said you weren't). I am a man of God, although I don't act like it, and I am amazed at everything just like you are. When I think of bread burning to become toast, I think science, not God. There are people like me out there. You just have to look harder.

Ignorant? No. My reasons for not believing in God is lack of proof. It is not the duty of atheists to disprove God. It is the duty of the believers to provide evidence of God. In all my time on this Earth, I have not seen a single ounce of evidence suggesting the existence of any god, Christian or otherwise. Furthermore, there are many passages within the Bible that are blatantly wrong scientifically. If your God created the properties of atoms and elementary particles, then His book would not include these errors.

And what purpose would that be exactly? To spread the word of Christ? Well then what? Will we all go to heaven after we're forgiveness and live forever? And once again, then what? What's the point in living forever. Eventually, you'd become tired of existing even if heaven was filled with every form of entertainment imaginable. That's the beauty of nature. It doesn't have a purpose and never will. We're all just atoms assorted by the properties and physics that govern them. There is no need for a creator with these laws of nature and that's how it's amazing. Ever since I started learning about chemistry and particle physics, everything amazaes me. Eating, walking, walls, heating toast and literally everything else seems incredible. What seems incredible to you? That an omniscient and omnipotent being created everything? If that's what you believe then it should be incredible. But there is no feeling that can compare to being amazed at how bread is turned to toast and knowing that no being is responsible for it.

Just by getting my mind off of things that don't matter. I used to always get upset over really dumb shit. But now I just relax and know that most of the time it just doesn't matter.

Amen to that shit. Weed does exactly that: it makes you look at the world around you and realizes that little things really aren't worth getting worked up over. Then again, if you overdo it, it makes everything not matter. I've been there. I'm just giving you a heads up because that critical point is out there, and you really don't want to hit it. I haven't smoked in around three months simply because I've realized it's not the same anymore and I just don't want it in my system. This is when you really start to notice the negative difference it's been making, however. Still, the good part about hitting the critical point is that you still know how to let the little things go by and focus on the big things, so you're much happier and no longer bound by the mental side-effects of marijuana.

It's not that difficult of a concept. You don't know if it's alive or dead, so you can think of it as being both sinse you don't know. Unless you mean when you apply it to what it was meant to explain... THAT is a mindfuck.

He's right though. There is no proof that praying to a divine entity helps in any medical treatment.

how do you like people telling you you're worthless every **** day? or that you're ugly and fat and noone likes you? it tears you apart and detaches you from your family your friends and everyone else you know. it's hard to be strong after you've been pushed down again and again. I've lost a friend to suicide and yes it hurts but when someone is at the point to where they will take their own life they feel like noone loves them. It's called prevention, not blaming dead people who were bullied.

There's nothing wrong with that. It's not a choice, and if you prefer waffles over pancakes you can't help it. I hope that one day people will be able to make waffles without being judged. :(

I never said it was immoral or bad for their health. I said it'd be **** up, which it would be. Do you have any idea how terrifying it would be for anyone to become more stoned and for longer than they probably ever reasonably would without them even knowing? Plus, it's also a danger because children aren't the most aware of their surroundings as it stands.
