    • I want to share my opinions on religion here.

      reject the concept of creator cos it doesnt exist.

      if there is salvation in itself, it is not thru an external source, you have to walk the path. just like studying for an exam, you rely on yourself to study hard, not by praying to a god  or hoping to pass the exams with flying colours just by thinking.

    • I think if you talk about a general "being" beyond our universe, then that might be possible because the universe is so huge.

      But if we talk about the existence of religious gods known on earth, those might not be real , considering the lack of empirical evidence

    • I dun think there is a creator either for our world or the universe. it is just phenomenon, the law of nature or physics at work. people can mistook this for a personal or creator, but that is not so in the era of science and technology. we know a lot more than our ancestors even from 100-200 years ago.

      Which still leaves the question of origins UNANSWERED. How did the universe come about. Yes we know more today, but the question of origins for the non-theist scientist is still a big question mark. Consider what this website list as the first question to answer and I quote

      1. How was the Universe formed? This is the biggest question of them all, because if we can not answer this question, then all the other questions are useless. Scientists believe that it all started 13.3 million years ago when Big Bang occurred. Prior to that everything was microscopic and after the explosion everything expanded. Once again this theory has not been proven, and the chances are that it will never be. They try to recreate Big Bang with the particle accelerator, but it is unknown if they will be able to achieve something with it.

      I believe I have told you before that

      1. Universe is complex =/= does not equate to a creator or creators.

      Your line of reasoning is flawed. Equation also flawed.

       

      2. Lets assume very daringly that it was created. Then why your deity and not zeus, jade emperor, allah or lord brahma?

      This I also have asked you and all you told me was because of your beliefs and faith, which other religions also possess.

      Strawman away!

      I believe I also told you before that

      1. The universe began to exist. It must have a cause. It cannot be self-caused which is illogical. The existence of the universe points to a Creator. The complexity/design of the universe points to a Designer.

      2. Since the universe cannot cause itself to exist, it must have been caused to exist by an external cause i.e. created. This is the only alternative, no need to assume at all. What else can it be due to? And if you have come this far, congratulations you are no longer an atheist! Then we can proceed on to explore WHO the creator is. I have good reasons why the God of the Bible is the one and not the others. But I think that showing that would be putting the cart before the horse so long as you remain an atheist because you probably will not appreciate the reasons. Let's take it one step at a time.

      Sure, we can all start playing word-replacement games, parasiting on each other's postings, mutating and distorting the intended meaning, and destroying the whole discussion. Is that where you wanna go with that?

    • I was raised a Christian and now a muslim convert. Im Chinese btw. No, did my malay friends forced me to convert nor did i marry a muslim women. You'd be surprised that there are millions of Chinese muslims in china. My road to conversion started 3 years ago when i started to question who god was and what the trinity actually meant. I watched videos of islam and christianity debate. In christianity, we were forced to believe that god exist as three forms Father, son and the holy spirit. When we mention the three, we see three distinct images that are non superimposible. It just doesnt make sense. 2. Why couldnt jesus christ predict the day of his return? 3. He never mentioned in the bible to worship him. 4. In the bible, jesus wanted to eat a fruit but he couldnt because it was not in season. Tell me which god is not able to make fruits bear fruits? 5. God is given birth by a women? Then what about adam who had no parents? Is he also a god. I believe that jesus was the messenger of God and prayed to god. I do not believe he would ever sacrifice himself just to clear our sins. Are we not accountable for our own sins? That was when i embraced islam. There are many reasons for my conversion but this would go on and on. Most of the islamic scholars are from non muslim backgrounds

      ISTARI,

      Respect your conversion, just as I respect Muslims who convert to Christianity or Hinduism. :)
