    So you think that social change is about killing and incarceration ?

    That is a demented point of view



    Cause of what exactly ?


    Yes

    But more importantly , these religions are about god and who is closer to god , this is what all the fightings are all about

    These religions don't have Humanity , the survival of Humanity at their core , just the god and therefore gods eminence

    It has been like this for thousands of years

    It is time that we , Humanity , end this

    Humanity offers , certainly , at this point in time in our History , our free-will to determine our own destiny

    We are in a unique point in our history where we are far more knowledgeable than the simple people of antiquity , who could be easily impressed , both by psychological means and technological means

    We can if we chose too , stand up for ourselves and say no more being manipulated by these so called god(s)

    If man projects his qualities on everything, and God is known to have his qualities, then it would support the idea that God is man-made, instead of man being made by God. And I don't think aliens will be like humans, the chance of life coming about and evolutionary progression to have happened on Earth was astronomically minute, for it to occur similar on another planet to produce human-like beings is essentially impossible lol

    We're not just talking about just any higher being, we're talking about "God", whose supposedly allknowing allpowerful and everpresent. So yes, I'd expect more than how the Old testament God acts.

    Sometimes, this is what is required, yes.

    When someone who has no support from any institution or organization, who can claim no formal education or authority, holds public speeches or posts on the internet - what kind of social change can such a person hope to bring about?


    The First Cause is, by definition, the cause of everything else.


    Or you're just too weak to compete, so in order to make things easy for yourself, you want to do away with competition altogether.
    Victory ought to be handed to you on a silver platter, eh?


    As long as humans don't come to the point where they can make the Sun shine, the Earth spin, and all the other things that God is traditionally said to be able to do, God's eminence remains.

    1. I would say, on the contrary. If God made man in his image, then man would project certain qualities on God if he so chose to. The ability to ''choose to'' is one such quality we
    could project simply because we have that ability.

    2. I don't know how you can say that with such certainty, regarding aliens not being human-like.

    3. Why is it impossible? If it happened on this planet, why couldn't it happen on another?

    4. I don't see ''God'' as the Old Testament God, or the Hindu God, or anything like that. I'm interested in learning more about ''God'', period.
    What do you think it means to be omnipotent, omniscient, and all-pervading?

    Are we manipulated ? In my view the word of God provides us with an advice to live in harmony which is humanity .
    Every society have a ton of laws , the laws are just a suppression of the natural freedom of the individual , only with the purpose to bring harmony in the society .

    I strongly disagree

    If this were true , if what your saying is true , then there would have been no wars in past history and we wouldn't have the situation in the middle east
