What makes it even more complicated is that when I imagine nothing, I imagine vast darkness or nothing but black or white, but if there is nothing, then darkness, black or white doesn't exist.

Yes that's the part i can't comprehend! I just imagine plain white but it didn't even exist, I am completely incapable of imagining that.

Scientifically incorrect.

Our brain does NOT control "our entire body."

For example, it has no control over DNA reproduction - that is written in its own code and it does so without instruction from the brain.

Other things are also done without instruction. For example, the flow of blood is encouraged by the design of our heart.

But, I do agree - we are wonderfully made.

Good point, but even with the exception of some things, we wouldn't be alive without our brains. The brain controls most things, and the idea that it is capable of so much when it appears to be such a simple object is mind blowing.

Oh my god, thank you so much for posting this, it literally just made my day. I have some friends who are slightly overweight and they always go on about their insecurities, and when I mention mine they all look at me like I'm not allowed to be insecure too because I'm thinner than them. I also hate it how no one would ever say to someone 'you're too fat' because that would be so offensive, yet people find it acceptable to say 'you're too skinny' when they don't actually realise that it can be offensive also. I wish I could gain weight but I can't, and I get so insecure about how I look. I wish more people would realise that.

I was just about to write the same comment. Australia has got to be the best country in the world!

I'm Agnostic, and I don't think you need to learn in detail about other religions before you decide that you are Agnostic/Atheist. As long as you have a general overview of other religions I think you can make an informed choice to be an Agnostic/Atheist.
For example, Atheists don't believe in a God, therefore all you need to know about other religions, such as Christianity, is that followers believe in a God. That's it. If you don't believe in a greater being, then you don't follow Christianity. Knowing all the other details of Christianity is irrelevant in that individual's decision. And yes, maybe if they did find out more about a particular religion they would find aspects of it that they agree with, but if you doubt any part of a religion, especially the belief in a God or Gods, then you can't exactly follow that religion. So as long as you understand the general idea of a religion, you can choose to be Agnostic/Atheist.

Most things in science aren't complete fact, they're just theories that have been supported by A LOT of evidence, that's why they're taught in science and not in a religion class... You can argue that religion classes teach creationism as fact aswell, so maybe they should start teaching evolution. This is the most ridiculous post i've ever seen.

"agnostic
noun
a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God."

If atheists don't believe in a God, then I think the line 'a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God' proves that you cannot be an agnostic atheist.

I'm Australian, i just tried using an American accent and it seriously did sound like gday mate in an Australian accent.
What annoys me the most is that the majority of the people i know wouldn't even think about saying half of the words that Americans seem to think we say all the time. I'm pretty sure I've never used 'Gday' seriously before in my life.

When Juno was in cinemas, I read in a few magazines that it had been given 5 stars. Personally I would've given it about 4, but anyway.

With Romeo and Juliet, at least for me, it's not that I think they're in love, it's how it all happens, how Shakespeare writes. And all the dirty jokes. I agree, it's just a movie so it doesn't really matter but I guess it's just not something I'll ever really like. Oh well.

That's fair enough, everyone has different opinions on both Romeo & Juliet and Titanic, I guess you just aren't a hopeless romantic like myself haha

Agreed. It's just a movie anyway, who cares if they only knew each other for a few days. It's a great movie and that's really all that matters.

Those don't really work as examples because in Australia literally nobody rides kangaroos, but in America there obviously are some stupid, ignorant people, just like in any other country.
