    Given that no one has managed to show that there is a "real god" that's a pretty silly remark.

    Preset conceptions of any sort are not discovered under a bush. So in that respect the devout wish to be their own God / Authority, too. Via their ideological ancestors formulating such a prescription for operation and a scheme of interpretation (which sports items like "unbelievers are unrepentant sinners").

    A brain does come with preset conditions established by an evolutionary history which make its manner of representing and understanding the world possible. But most of the special affairs of human civilization are invented or gradually developed, diverse add-ons passed down by tradition. Which continue to be gradually modified in that creative process.

    While it is certainly within natural character for humans of a particular clan or group to have commitment to their preset customs and identity... Each in cooperative conjunction with the others still also has an obligation to devise or recruit mediating systems of ideas that allow their differing worldviews to co-exist peaceably with each other. A common tenet in any of those negotiating "bridges" should be that of "staying within one's own turf" when it comes to application of rules pertaining to the functions and judgements of a specific tribe's own plan of psychological apprehension and behavioral operation.

    Defense in response to unprovoked attack or ensuing warfare between ideological camps can be a potential exception. But the point is to forge an intermediating apparatus or philosophy between what initially seem to be incommensurable schools of thought, so as to diminish or outright eliminate the frequency of such hostile occurrences.

    Nope.
    The problem is that phrase "real god" is nothing but shorthand for "god the way I see it" - a sort of No True Scotsman fallacy.

    Faith is a fundamental human nature.

    CC,

    Thy truth is in your head. Your mind fails to interpret reality from beyond the umbrella of mere humanism fields such as psychiatry and psychology. Hence you conflate the illusory ego id identity with all of subjectivity and believe nothing lives eternally after death. This is incorrect. WORRY NOT! For I am here to help.

    You have evidence?
    Or are you -as usual - just making unsupported assertions?

    I don't entirely disagree with this. I do think that people are generally predisposed to believe in higher powers.

    But that says nothing about those higher powers existing.

    Humans are generally predisposed to superstition too, but that doesn't mean that blowimg on dice before throwing them actually makes for better rolls.

    Nick should that read "For I am here for help".?????
    You should start with a good diet, exercise and go for long walks in the Sunshine.

    This life is all you have if you are counting on something better after you are dead you are going to miss out on the only real life eternity will give you.

    Please stop fooling yourself that there is something out there that offers no evidence whatsoever but delivers only guilt and comfusion. You need not feel guilty the only wrong is the wrong of causing a human to be confused via superstitious indoctrination we elevate and call religion.

    Sadly you are a victim I feel sorry for you that someone has damaged you so badly.

    You are throwing away the only life you will ever have ...true...and you throw it away on make believe and fantasy.

    That is so very sad.

    The real world is just outside your closed doors ...please go for a walk in reality for your sake.

    Shake off the delusion that imprisons your being.

    So, you choose to ignore all responses to your opening post, and instead you have opted for further preaching.

    Don't you think that's dishonest of you?

    If you don't want a discussion, let me know and I'll close the thread. You can blog somewhere else.

    Denying God does not mean God does not exist.
    Unbelievers are just stubborn to believe their foolish minds, keep on denying what is true,
    and know nothing about the truth of the Bible.

    If sinners can know they are sinners, then they will not be sinners anymore but a forgiven sinners by God.

    That is like so Freudian! Daring repressed memories into consciousness. God is like the psychoanalyst in the clouds.
