Atheism is unstoppable and growing rapidly in almost every developed country, including Japan. This is probably due to better education and the ability to question what once was thought to be a sin – to question religious authorities. Don’t get me wrong, having no religion is as bad as being a religious fanatic, more often than not, a religion stops being a religion and becomes a cult when the followers follow the teachings blindly.
The question is, can a country be peaceful if a majority of the people are atheist? Denmark and Sweden are among the least religious nations in the world, and also one of the best with good education, minimal crimes and honest people. Three questions up for debate, there are no right or wrong, only different opinions.
Who created God? and if God can exist without a creator, using the same principle, why can’t humans and all the living beings exist without a creator?
Science shows that the universe has billions and billions of planets, if Aliens do exist, doesn’t that contradicts the teaching of God created us in his image? Unless the Aliens have the same human forms too, which is unlikely.
If God created humans and all living beings, then evolution is fake, but within their short recorded history, bacteria and viruses have evolved to counter penicillin and antibiotics they humans developed. Isn’t that proof of evolution? And all religions themselves show the very idea of evolution is real, as seen with the many branches and sub-branches then sub-sub branches of Christianity and Islam as they adapted to the local culture, climate, environment and political situation. There is no 1 denomination of Christianity, neither is there 1 school of Islamic thoughts. Same goes with Buddhism and many other religion in the world.
You talked about hell as if you’re born and raised there. – Mark Gungor
Reincarnation? It may be that they have all lived before and died, and this is hell.
It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui. – Hellen Keller
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able, and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? – Epicurus
I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world. – Richard Dawkins
I asked God for a car, but I know God doesn’t work that way. So I stole a car and asked for forgiveness.
I told God to protect me from my enemies and I started losing friends.
I’ve got nothing against God. It’s his fan club I can’t stand.
God please give me patience, if you give me strength I will just punch them in the face.
If God did not forgive sinners, heaven would be empty.
Forgiveness is between them and God. It’s my job as a hitman to arrange the meeting.
Forgive and forget? I’m neither God nor do I have Alzheimer’s.
If you do not sin, God’s son died for nothing.
I asked God to punish me for I have sinned, next day I met you.
May God bless you a long, sick and shameful life.
You don’t need religion to have morals. If you can’t determine right from wrong then you lack empathy, not religion.
God is omnipotent, omniscient, and controls everything. Unless something bad happens. Then that was Satan.
If your religion requires that you hate someone you need a new religion.
If it’s 1 or 1000 sins you’re still getting sent to Hell. So why not go for 1,000,000 sins and come down here a legend.
Argument / Evidence On Why God Doesn’t Exist
My personal opinion is that I’ve lived long enough to find the whole idea of God as the all mighty nothing more than some magical person created by man in his own image, not the other way around as described by most religions. Have you ever wondered why miracles cease to exist as camera technology improves? The same goes with alien and bigfoot sightings, as the quality of image improves, there is virtually no excuse for producing blurry and grainy videos. Out goes with all those fake Loch Ness photos and ghost images.
Before the invention of the camera, holy men resurrected the dead, talked to ghosts, walked on water, cured the blind with a simple touch and more. It all ends with the birth of the camera, coincident? I don’t think so. If you are an atheist, don’t attack another person’s religion, let it be, and if you are religious, do not force feed your religion when a person shows no interest in it. Respect each other’s choices.
