So I visited this website, linked by Anne Rice on her facebook wall.
And it got me thinking about this stuff again.
Everybody doesn’t believe in God in the same way.
Their logical mistake this website is making is that they’re assuming that the Bible defines God.
(Why would they assume that if they don’t believe in it?)
And since the bible isn’t true then God can’t exists.
But, what if the Bible doesn’t define God? What if the Bible isn’t true? That doesn’t necessarily mean that God doesn’t exist.
Take the question: Why does God allow pain and illness and misery? Why doesn’t he do something?
Well I think, If that was the point with God, then he would have already.
Since he doesn’t, then I’m assuming that that is not the point with God.
Maybe we’re all a big experiment?
We really have no idea why we exist.
Personally, I’m guided by my own morale.
And some of the things in the Bible, said to be the word of God, seem highly wrong to me. They seem “not good”.
But the Bible says God is all good?
But if the Bible isn’t true, then maybe God isn’t good.
Or if it is true, then Gods defenition of good is somethinmes different from my own.
Why do humans have a sence of morale and intelligence if God wants us to sumbit to his will, and not listen to logics and morale?
I know what I want to believe.
I want to believe that when we die, or well um.
All the good things in life will be there.
And all the bad things will not.
But “one person’s heaven is another man’s hell”?
Maybe we’ll all have personalized heavens. Maybe our consciousness will live in a bubble, a personal illusion.
What’s to say this isn’t an illusion?
And now I’m getting to a point where things don’t seem so happy after all.
But I want to believe in ultimate fulfillment, ultimate perfection.
So that’s what I chose to believe in. I want to believe God is the way I see him; so I do.
I believe God the way I wish he is. But even if I don’t, I’d still think that there was “a God”. Like a sentinent being on the astral plane, with it’s own agenda.
But then again, maybe my version of god isn’t quite the christian one?
So maybe this website doesn’t care about this way of seeing things.
I tend to call myself agnostic. Maybe that’s not quite what I am?
