A few comments:
-Since we`ve moved on from bananas, there`s a big difference between "unrealistic ideals" with "no proof" and "someone who lived and died and apparently rose from the dead and worked miracles and who claimed to be God" (my words). I have no right to force pure "ideals" onto someone, unrealistic or not. But if I tell you about a man called Jesus, who did the aforementioned, that is a statement that can be investigated, the evidence examined. If the evidence adds up, and you think that it`s true then: 1-It`s true for everyone, not a case of "I`ll believe what`s right for me." 2-Here`s a "source of higher knowledge": not just "human ideals", but Truth coming from one who is far above us-so we must change our ideas accordingly 3-This is serious stuff, we should at least tell others out of concern/love for them, so they won`t get "struck down" along with Satan and all others who thought they k

Bananas are bananas beacuase humans used selective breeding techniques for years. They are not naturally that convenient. Bananas one in supermarket, or this video- are not even a spieces, they are sterile. I don`t even like Bananas, cool word though.

I do not believe that John 3:16 in particular represents "unrealistic ideals"; however, I can see where the 10 Commandments may come across that way. But consider this:
"For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are."
(Romans 3:20)
All that John 3:16 tells us to do is believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, which is far from an unrealistic ideal.
I am not a big fan of denominations myself, but at this point in time I think that it would be worse without them.
Lastly, I pray that I have not come across as cruel, unaccepting, hateful, or malevolent. If so, I definitely apologize for presenting the information in the incorrect manner.

In short answer to your question, He will.
"Then the devil, who had deceived them, was thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur, joining the beast and the false prophet. There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever."
(Revelation 20:10)
However, when God does strike down Satan, judgment will come. I believe that God wants as many people to come to Him as possible before that happens, He is giving people time to turn from their sins.
"For the Good News must first be preached to all nations."
(Mark 13:10)

ghulaak, I wouldn`t consider it an inherent human flaw. Rather, I feel the 3:16 verse represents an unrealistic ideal that humans have set for themselves and that in practice, we continually fail to meet our own standards (or God`s standards, depending on what one thinks of the origin of the Bible). One of my big turn-offs to religion is how often times religious people will claim to belong to the perfect idealogy of their denomination, and yet upon scratching the gilded surface, one finds the cruel, unaccepting, hateful, and malevolent nature of the faithful.

And I am sorry, but I will not elaborate on why I feel God is an unjust god. I`ve said as much about religion as I feel comfortable with saying without fueling the fire of a larger conflict.

You are correct Overmann that it can plant that view in people, in fact it has several times if you delve into the history books. However, that is merely a human failure, not the failure of the verse.
"Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven."
(Matthew 10:33)
I am interested in hearing why you believe that God is not a just God.

roller_03, I`m using a principle of opposites I`ve thought up as a tool for becoming more aware of the world and reality. Everything must have an opposite that says its opposite can exist. For example, you can`t have a spoon without its opposite defining what a spoon isn`t. This has led to me conclude that there must be an infinite amount of dimensions, together playing out every possibility so that ours can simply exist. One cannot do anything without some rule saying what is possible.

After some thinking, I`ve concluded that wordly knowledge cannot be true knowledge because if it were, we`d know if it was true or not. That we question the nature of wordly knowledge says as much. To answer your question, I just used my principle of opposites to conclude that there must be a state of knowing everything that dictates, as an opposite, knowing nothing, which we do.

Again, all of this is speculation because, obviously, we can`t know anything.

disciple99, what you seem to be describing are self-fulling prophecies. When people believe (key word) that God is telling them things, which is to say that when people are made to believe through church preachings that God is telling them things, they`ll believe it because looking all throughout history, faith has been dominate over what later became known as scientific fact. Faith has a greater hold over people`s emotions - to the point where it affects them personally and they refuse to allow someone to contradict their beliefs.

ghulaak, that Bible verse (a popular one, is it?) sounds horribly elitist. It can potentially implant in the minds of its readers a self-righteous viewpoint towards "lesser men," namely those who don`t worship God. Am I to be punished by God for not believing in him? And knowing this, would my overwhelming fear of death impede on my free will?

God is not a just god. He`s a small man behind the curtain.

Overmann:

My main point was that we are basing our opinions on worldly knowledge so anything that comes from that would be worldly knowledge. This being the case, how could you say that there is a level of knowledge that surpasses our higher knowledge unless you had a source of higher knowledge that was actually telling you so (such as God). I do not believe that it is acurate to say that God only talks to people that have a belief in Him. What about the Biblical story of Abraham? I don`t believe that people are going to always physically or manifestally hear his voice, but couldn`t God use other ways to speak to people besides just through words, since He is God? Specifically, that is what the Bible is for. It is His words and you can hear him speak whenever you open it.

Rom 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Rom 5:2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Rom 5:3 More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,
Rom 5:4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,
Rom 5:5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God`s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
Rom 5:6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
Rom 5:7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person--though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die--
Rom 5:8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

I cannot truly describe the joy that comes from knowing Christ, but I can say that, Overman, the reason that Christians hear god speak is because we listen. You cannot hear what you don`t listen for. Also God doesn`t speak directly, rather, through prayer and worship and asking God for direction , we feel the Holy Spirit telling us what to do. God leads us, and helps us through hard times, and it is this knowledge that influences my love and devotion for Christ.

To Nico_86:
"For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God`s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God`s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants."
(John 3:16-21)
There is also a note in my Bible that says:
"When Jesus talks about unbelievers, he means those who reject or ignore him completely, not those who have momentary doubts."

I went back to an earlier page and read something that annoyed me:

"Neither creation nor evolution are proven. And although your Biology teacher might think otherwise, they are both technically faiths."

Evolution is not a faith. It is a theory, plain and simple. People don`t "follow" it. There are no strict rules to it by which people must run their lives. It is simply there, derived from factual observations. People use this knowledge to best run their lives. A simple example: it was observed, and derived from experiments that water at lower pressures, boils at lower temperatures. No one commits themselves to blindly believing "evolution," but say the time were to come where humanity must make a decision to save itself, if I were in charge, I would follow ... this is too hard to explain for me. 4get it.

I just went back and read some of the posts and Overmann, I like your thoughts and I agree completly.

ghulaak: What if someone says he has faith AND acts like he has faith, but truly in his heart he cant ever fully come to have blind faith, will he still be embraced by God? That is my situation, I wish and hope that there is something after life, but I can`t bring myself to believe such a thing as God (and the whole deal) because of my experiences and how I`ve been shaped. So...I`m agnostic, but very willing to go to a heaven if there is one =)

I won`t debate faith except to say that religion is true and God "speaks" only to those who believe in him, and that God`s responsiveness is actually a self-materialized phenomenon on the part of religious people. This is, of course, my opinion, and is consequently why I don`t believe in prayer or God. Different experiences, different opinions, and I`m content with both of mine.

Man is definitely imperfect, we screw up all the time. God accepts and loves everyone, but, being a just God, He cannot accept sin. Therefore, He sent Jesus to die for our sins, in order to have a way for us to get to Him. Are doubts and inclinations sin? Not necessarily.

As for God being invisible, unresponsive, and discriminatory; it is an inaccurate statement from my experiences.

As for lukewarm Christianity, here is what James has to say about it:
"What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don`t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone?" (James 2:14)
"You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. How foolish! Can`t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?"
(James 2:19-20)

You raise an important reason for following any religion (though Christianity may be a better example), but I`ve often thought of this and decided that because the Bible says Man is imperfect, and because Christian teachings speak of benevolence and care (excluding, of course, how Christianity works in practice), I`ve decided God won`t strike me down for doubting his existence.

But on the other hand if he cannot accept the doubts and inclinations of his own creations, then perhaps he isn`t a god worth worshipping. After all: I wouldn`t feel secure with myself worshipping (a form of overwhelming submission or adoration) an invisible, unresponsive, and discriminatory being.

The record of it said that we appear exactly as we are, only in forms of energy and not as physical beings. It had also said that we can think about being anywhere in the world and immediately appear there, or think of the name of a person and be immediately beside them. This suggests an immediate access to other individuals and areas, which may or may not transcend the dimension of time. Very interesting stuff.

roller_03:

Concerning your first post, what do you mean by wordly knowledge? Do you mean miscellaneous information, such as the name of countries, the color of animals, etc.? If so, I would say that true knowledge may very well be wordly knowledge, but that our incapability of knowing anything would prevent us from knowing any different, and is therefore nonexistent (or incomprehensible) to us. And I am basing my definition of true knowledge on bias and interpretation, but only because I can`t do any different.

sambofry, you are describing the visions of Edgar Cayce in which he claimed to see a room full of monitors depicting various historical and current events upon falling into a trance.

Also, I can`t remember any specifics but I was told of this one girl who was drifting in and out of life, describing what she saw on the other side to her parents, who eagerly wrote it down.

the only way i can see to achieve true knowledge is to have access to a time machine and to be imortal, then you would have to watch time several thousands times over to see it from every perspective and then be able to read minds to see what everyone was thinking. this being close to impossible, though i do believe in an infinite amount of dimensions so and infinite amount of chances for this to happen, its doubtful that this will happen in our life time.

Also, for all of you out there who think that there is no such thing as God, I would just like to say that thinking that way might not be the best of decisions. I could debate all day and night about the evidence of God`s existance, my personal beliefs of why he exists, and even his purpose for our existance, but what it boils down to for me is one simple fact. If I am wrong then too bad, if you are wrong then where do think that will lead to? Should pride overcome prudence?

Why couldn`t worldly knowledge be true knowledge then? Since we can not comprehend true knowledge, how would we even know if it was or was not present? Aren`t you also basing your opinion of true knowledge on your bias and interpretation?

sambofry, I haven`t even considered time and have yet to factor it into my definition of true knowledge. However, I imagine time would be nonexistent or irrelevant to one who achieves true knowledge, simply because that person would have access to all information regardless if it has been forgotten or lost in our timespan. I`ve yet to really think about it, and you raise a good point.

"I feel that true knowledge is an enlightened state of being; an understanding of everything achieved without bias or interpretation."
its correct except that, this is my opinion, you also need to have knowledge of all past present and future. otherwise i pretty much agree with you.

on the subject of god, personally i feel that he is too perfect to exist. when you look for desirable traits in people, e.g. intelligence, strength, etc, people imagine the ultimate example of it, e.g. god. this has been repeated throughout history, in tribal times the gods may have been thought to be warriors or hunters for example.

"But," says Man, "the Banana is a dead giveaway isn`t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves that you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don`t. Q.E.D."
"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn`t thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

Such a theory to God`s existance...and of all the edible fruits it has to be the banana right...If the banana was THE fruit then the story of Adam and Eve would be with bananas not apples. Apples arent exactly shaped so that we can shove it in our mouths as easy. As for the dynamics of the banana I dont mean to be rude but its shape and all is more designed perhaps as a sex toy before the mechanical ones were invented by us humans. In that case God provided us with a natural sex toy as another means to satisfy ourselves...theres a thought haha

You still didn`t refute what I said, bigoldjeffry. Rather, you responded with what you would consider a witty one-liner and went your own way feeling better about yourself. Get in a debate with me, damn you, and stop beating around the bush.

I assume you know what true and false knowledge is, bigoldjeffry? I guess not, seeing how "false knowledge" is an oxymoron.

roller_03, I feel that true knowledge is an enlightened state of being; an understanding of everything achieved without bias or interpretation. It`s just there. I don`t believe this is possible, however, and therefore cannot exist, at least in existence as we know it, which is terribly narrowly defined.

That is an opinion, bigoldjeffry, and as such is subject to be worth only as much stock as one puts into it. And of course, the Greek philosophers constantly contradicted each other (but you should know that) and that these contradictions didn`t overturn previous philosophical principles, but rather served to add perspective.

I consider myself Sophist, yes, but only in thought, in that I believe wordly knowledge is dictated by rhetoric and that true knowledge, as it is, does not exist. To put it narrowly, in the words of Gorgias: "Nothing exists. If anything exists, it is incomprehensible. If it is comprehensible, it is incommunicable."

"ever hear of profiling"

By comprehend, I was under the impression that you were implying that we could understand all that was possible about a subject. Anyone could "comprehend" a person if they just learn a bit about an individuals personality and history if that is all that comprehension means; simply understanding a part of a whole. Who is to say that you could not do the same thing with God then? If God created everything, then wouldn`t learning about everything teach us to "comprehend" God?

In my opinion, comprehension involves a complete understanding of each and every facet of what you are attempting to understand. That being the case, how could we ever say that we comprehend ourselves, each other, or God?

How precisely is this supposed "we can`t comprehend god" supposed to be "convenient?"

Enlighten me, please, if you will, with your vast knowledge of apologetics and theology, to the nature of the "we cant` comprehend god argument." Now, from whom do you pull this one? Bertrand Russell? Descartes? Thomas Mann? Richard Dawkins? Stephen Jay Gould?

Or merely from your stunted adolescent mindset?

Enlighten me, please: I wait in suspense.

That question is a classic contradiction in terms. If we assume God is infinite, then He has no beginning.

If he has no beginning, then he has no maker.-

Immortality *is* perfection, SPrinkZ. Read John Keats` Ode on a Grecian Urn and hopefully the point he makes of mutability will become clear to you.

LBlues, what do you know of the evidence of the Big Bang? What steps do you think scientists took that lead them to conclude a very large explosion must have happened between 10 and 15 billion years ago? Let me ask you this: why is our universe`s expansion accelerating? And no one ever said the explosion was random; everything must have a cause, especially in terms of science.

SPrinkZ said, foolishly:

"How is living forever perfect? Explain perfection to me, especially considering that you have no idea what true perfection is, since it`s SUBJECTIVE!
There is no good, there is no EVIL, only faith."

There is no good or evil? Well, I`m glad that Hitler was such a normal guy, as well as that piece of garbage Bin Laden. What about that trash Dahmer? Is he okay, too?

There is not good and evil: the ultimate adolescent fantasy.

"And then God said, "Let there be much strife amongst the people`s of the time-wasting porthole of IAB." And there was." Awesome.

In the interest of a little more time-wasting, I`m going to share one of my favorite quotes from the late Mitch Hedberg:

"At a stoplight, green means go, yellow means slow down, and red means stop. For a banana it`s the complete opposite. Green means hold on, yellow means go right ahead, and red means, dude, where the f*ck did you get that banana at?"

Excuse me, SPrinkZ, but the Big Bang theory actually *is* logical. Look at the various scientific facts pointing to a very large explosion 13.7 billion years ago. The extrapolation in tracing back these steps is very logical and scientific, and the Big Bang theory is completely different from Creationism when you consider that scientists are daring to say there was existence before the Big Bang.

"No one wants to hear that they are going to be judged or condemned by God. It`s easier to say "He doesn`t exist." That`s why so many people posted on this topic, with the mentality: "Screw God. He`s not real. I`d rather believe we came from a rock that turned into monkeys that other than a certain President developed into the modern-day human."
I am not related to a rock."

You don`t want to believe that we`re spawned from rock, but you have NO problem believing that some random all powerful thing just floated out of nowhere, whipped up a universe for no logical reason other than he was floating around in darkness, and that`s why you`re here?

The reality of the issue is, almost every item of proof for creationism and evolutionism can be turnded around to prove/disprove the other.

"It doesn`t make sense that everything came from nothing"
can be
"The god you think exists IS everything and apparently came from nothing"

both sides are just as il/logical as the other and the truth is no one`s gonna know until they breath their last breath.

And just out of curiosity...a perfect world would be without sin wouldn`t it? Kinda weird how the world`s supposed to be imperfect now because of a sin that shouldn`t really have been possible in the first place. And if sin was possible, it`s not really a perfect world...

i go against my last statement, we were both right, kinda:
"The familiar yellow banana sold in the U.S. is usually the Cavendish variety. In specialty stores, urban supermarkets, and in Latin neighborhoods, you can sometimes find more exotic varieties that offer different tastes and textures. These include manzano (also called apple or finger bananas), which are finger-size and turn black when ripe; Saba and Brazilian, which are straight, medium-size, and somewhat tart; and red bananas, which are very sweet and turn purplish red as they ripen.

Plantains (platanos), which look like large, green bananas, are often seen in Latin markets. These starchy fruits are usually cooked and eaten as a vegetable. "

smcnic, i`m saying that what happens to people is usually because of cause and effect, not if you sin than a hurrican is going to come and kill people type thing. What i`m saying is that when we sin we must accept the consequences of our actions rather than blaming God for it.

Natural disasters are just that- disasters. I dont know why God letsthem happen, but trust me, it isn`t just to kill or hurt, because God loves us- no matter how corny that may sound.

"The world is imperfect because WE MADE IT THAT WAY! There is violence and death in the world BECAUSE OF US! We brought it upon ourselves from the moment we began to sin."

I`m curious, and will readily admit to not knowing everything there is to know about the Bible and various religious dogmas. So I figure this is as good a place to ask as any. About the whole perfection before sin issue...is all the imperfection in the world really attributed to a single sin made by humans back at the beginning of time? Or is it more of the "we keep sinning, keeps the imperfection running" variety?

And jeez, to think of all the natural disasters, death, etc. in the world that has nothing to do with humans. If we`re responsible for that, sorry world. My hamster is likely to die in a year or two, guess he should be pretty pissed at me.

One more question, are humans the only ones that sin? My dog`s gotten into the garbage a few times, definitely not commendable behavior

And imperfection is not God`s fault because he gave us free wills. The condition of ourselves and the world depends on how we excercise our God-given free will.

"Plus, if God created everything with a perfect design, why is the world so imperfect, why do things go extinct, why do we have platypuses?"

Even though I really don`t want to get involved in this, I`m gunna comment on that.

The answer is in the book of Genesis. Everything was PERFECT until the first sin was committed. As punishment for this disobedience, God took away the perfection. Everything could now die, childbirth is now painful, etc.

I admit, this does sound a little weird, but it`s my belief and I`m sticking to it.

If you don`t believe it, then that`s fine. Believe whatever you want, and don`t let anyone stop you. We are here to set our own paths.

As much as I would love for everyone to accept Christianity, I know it`s never gonna happen. And I`m ok with that!

As long as I know for myself that God is my savior, then all is well with me!

Listen, children: when you lose a parent, when you lose a child, when a friend commits suicide, when the unexplainable happens, when you wake up one morning, dead to everything other than your own reflection--this is the kind of thing that leads to faith.

Faith has NOTHING to do with religion. It has everything to do with doctrine.

Also, don`t even tell me that you think it`s logical for some all powerful being to come into existence...from non-exsistence, some how be able to be everywhere at once, be all powerful, and create the universe, and not expect me to laugh when you call that `logic`. That`s not logical, nor is the big bang, but we know the unvierse began at the size of a singularity and the energy it threw off from it created the universe, or so they think.

With that said, have a nice day, and drop the fundamentalist christian trash. I would never align myself with you idiots, I`m making my own church.

When someone says, "I can prove X, Y and Z" and they then produce a set of circumstances that allow for actual repeatable indisputable observations to take place again and again, we can believe the results because we can reproduce the circumstances ourselves, or, we can perform the tests and our results will verify/dispute the original observation. A truth will eventually be reached in this manner.

When we say things like "...can you really look at all things, microscopic and macroscopic...and say that it all happened by accident..." or "God exists because it says so in the Bible" or "see this banana..." then we are not proving anything. What we are doing is presenting an opinion.

There`s a significant and real difference. And arguing opinion versus observable, repeatable fact is pure folly. Evolution is not proven, but the age of the Earth is. The existence of dinosaurs is. Argue opinion all you want, be my guest, but don`t try to sell

It most certainly is justified when one adopts the view that life is a by-product of the perfect condition of the universe. In short, we are living because the environment was supportive of life. And if the conditions were not perfect, which they may not have been for trillions of years or more before us, we wouldn`t be around to debate it. The rain falls not for the corn; rather, the corn grows in response to the rain.

"by saying that everything in the universe just happens in no way throws out creationism or christianity because we believe God designed all these things personally and fit it to work out."

Creation implies the spontaneous generation of something from nothing. While the creation process itself can be gradual, ultimately when matter is created, it appears in space (the capacity of room) instantly, whether in completed form or not. So yes, it just "happens". God may have sat upon a workbench for millenia and designed every imaginable (unimaginable, even) aspect of existence, yet when it came into being through creation, it was spontaneous. That`s simply the definition of creationism.

Note: By that token, humans cannot create anything.

God had to have worked out these things.

"First, mocking people because o religion is wrong."

Tell that to the fundamentalist minister at a local church in my town who said Buddhism was wicked. Mocking people simply because they are different is wrong, but that doesn`t stop most people, including those of faith.

"To say that everything on earth, all life and the universe just "happened" is completely illogical."

Kind of throws Creation and spontaeneous generation out the window, doesn`t it? Science has been implying for years that life was a gradual, tedious process.

Religions `evil`: They generated, racism, holy wars which took the lives of children (in the childrens crusade). Used God as justification for slavery, etc.

Atheists do not all cohere to eachother, despite the fact they believe in NO God, they don`t all believe in eachother, you may it sound like they make a choice and they made a church of atheists. It`s not how it works, view them as seperate from one another, not as a union as in all dogmas. Thanks, have a nice day.

OK. That was pretty stupid. I mean, I`m sure there are better arguments for religeon than BANANAS.

Personally, I think there must be some kind of god out there, or at least some kind of force that made the difference between ther being nothing and there being something. If that makes any sense.

I don`t however, believe in organized religeon because it seems to be based too much on ceremonies and traditions. I think if god wanted me to go to church, he (or she) would have given me a revelation, or something. And if he hated aetheists, he could just smite them.

The fact that there is no solid proof for god proves to me that he just wants us to believe what we want to believe--bananas or no bananas. There is no proof in arguing science against religeon, because they are two completely different things--although that doesn`t mean you can`t believe in them both.

Anyway, at the risk of sounding morbid, I`m sure we`ll all find out when we die.

Now, a cucumber you can just wash off and eat. Same with an apple or a pear or carrot and even some squashes. You don`t even have to wash them if you don`t want to! You can stick any of these lovely edibles up your butt as well, but I wouldn`t suggest that unless you`re an old pro--novices should probably start with a carrot or finger (notice its shape!).

Each of these objects fit nicely in the hand (or butt), are curved like our hand while gripping and each convieniently faces your mouth (or butt) when holding them.

Therefore, I can clearly conclude that god likes to feed us, and, he likes us to place food in our butts. Logic.

Let`s all just be tolerant of one another! None of this "God Sucks! Bhudda Blows! Atheism Is Gay!" crap I see here! Everyone is going to believe what they want and there is not much to be done about that.

A big problems with religions and beliefs today, with my main example being Christianity here, is that religious (or spiritual...whichever you prefer) people are WAY TOO JUDGEMENTAL! Christianity teaches us to love our fellow man, and I`m sure other religions teach that as well!

Let`s all just hug and make nice or some peace-y crap like that!

Neither creation nor evolution are proven. And although your Biology teacher might think otherwise, they are both technically faiths.

It comes as no suprise that there is so much debate over creationism or the validity of Darwin`s THEORY. Who`d want to identify themselves as a Christian, when today`s average bible-thumping Joe is an arrogant hypocrite?

No one wants to hear that they are going to be judged or condemned by God. It`s easier to say "He doesn`t exist." That`s why so many people posted on this topic, with the mentality: "Screw God. He`s not real. I`d rather believe we came from a rock that turned into monkeys that other than a certain President developed into the modern-day human."

I`ve never heard an atheist convicingly explain to me whether the chicken came before the egg, or vice versa. Yeah you don`t have to believe in God, but that doesn`t mean he`s not real or that He doesn`t believe in you.
I am not related to a rock.

Well, not on my end, at least. I said secularism, not atheism (though an atheism is secular), has caused more death than any religion, but people still single out religious ideals as the most deadly. Facts plainly paint a different reality than the fantasy these people are living in. If somebody`s going to put down religious people for living in a fantasy land and having beliefs based on "lies" and faulty reasoning, they should at least not be guilty of the same faults.

I`d like to add in my two cents on agnosticism, as there seems to be a prevailing misconception about it. I consider myself agnostic, which is to say I don`t believe the existence of God can be proven and that personal knowledge of God is attained solely through faith, or the individual`s belief. No one tells one God exists; it is up to one to decide for themselves.

Agnosticism is definitely not the search for truth as far as religion is concerned, because agnostics believe the existence of God cannot be proven and that there is no evidence to be thought of as proof.

Finally, agnostics are different from athiests in that agnostics do not necessarily deny the existence of God, only that his existence is unprovable. Therefore, agnostics can also belong to a religion or have faith, whereas athiests do not. (Although it can be argued that athiests belong to a lack of faith, which can be considered a faith itself.)

Hoax, we have a rather large Wiccan church here in the deep South US where I live. The state I live in requires a church to "cover" a child that`s being homeschooled -- you can`t just decide to keep your kid home and educate him right without the blessing of a church -- and the Wiccan church provides cover for anyone who asks. It annoys a lot of people (hehehe)....

You know what? I`m not going to argue about religion, but I think this is a little bit egocentric. To assume that, because there are natural items which exist which happen to fit our hands and mouths perfectly, that this means they were designed for us and that it is proof of God...

Well, in that case, God designed it for monkeys, as opposed to humans. But of course, people also think Jesus was white and that the Bible was written in English. *shrugs*

My intelligent, if somewhat abrasive, friend bigoldjeffry says evolution = theory. Which is true. But why would you choose to believe something that`s less plausible, with less evidence to support it?
I do not buy the argument that you shouldn`t believe evolution simply because it`s a theory. Because this argument is put forth by people who want you to believe something that has even less evidence to support it than the theory of evolution.

Have you honestly ever set foot in a science class room? If you have i`d like to kick your teacher in the throat. A theory isn`t some sort of educated guess. A theory is based on real proof and commonly observed facts. There is plenty of proof for evolution and I suggest you talk to someone that could enlighten you on the subject. You seem to know nothing of the theory of evolution, as you mix the theory of the big bang and it up quite well. Life isn`t some fluke of chance, from the beginning of the planet life was inevitable, maybe not as we have it now, but we had the right chemicals it just took some time.

There are scientific facts that tend to back Christian beliefs as well. Of course, Evolution actually creates more questions than it answers as well. If a small speck of matter and energy exploded, creating the universe and its contents, then where did the speck of matter and energy come from? Another question is, how can Earth have beaten the odds thus far and support life to this day? Billions of years without being struck by a huge asteroid? Another question would be, why is the level of intelligence that humans have so much greater than any other species alive? And most of all, if Evolution is true because it is backed by scientific facts (which don`t actually PROVE evolution, but only says it *may* be possible), then what if I come up with some really lame idea that scientific facts can sound supportive of?

All in all, just like religion, your belief of how the Earth was made still relies on faith. Creationism remains just as plausible as Evolution

The problem is, there is no fact on how the Earth was created. Religion is based on faith, Evolution is based on a scientific theory that tries to explain the origins of the Earth through currently known scientific facts.

Faith can be misplaced. You can say "well the Bible says..." but then you have to ask: what if the person who wrote the Bible is wrong? Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all completely different yet stem from fairly similar origins. Christianity is in itself a myriad of different religions. If Christianity is the correct religion, why does everyone disagree?

As for Evolution, it is a theory that is taught as fact. In reality, there is no "proof" of evolution. It is a theory spawned from scientific knowledge. Who knows? Ten years from now we could find evidence that disproves certain parts of the theory.

Ajikan, P.S. Religion is not poison. And if everyone saw that youd have more enemies then a Hong Kong phone book had cheese. The reason for religion in the first place was because man had no explanation for why they were here. And they were alone. A god/gods someone higher then them, to guide them, greatly helped them. Example, A religion in the chinese culture (forgot the name) has no god, BUT they do WORSHIP there ancestors as OLDER, WISER, people to GUIDE THEM through life. Sound like anyone you were talking about. GOD!

Atheism = absolute faith in Empircal senses

Empirical senses = from the self

Thus, Atheism = arrogant worship of self.

Deal, friends. That`s logic.

What`s wrong with Creationism? Can`t I believe that God divinely moved evolution with His hand?

OK nobody said you can`t believe that but the Atheism thing is BS, I don`t believe in god, but i don`t worship myself I just don`t believe that one guy created everything you see around you, especially when theres enough scientific evidence to prove you wrong but you can beleive what you want to but try and push your views on others just like how i`m not going to try and push my views on you...just had to get my voice out....

bigoldjeffry, you can believe whatever you want. I would not ridicule your belief in God. I respect your beliefs completely. I personally don`t believe in Creationism. I consider myself a humanist - I strive to be a moral person without the promise of reward, or the threat of punishment, in an afterlife. I prefer to make the most of the existence that I know is true (life on earth). You can have virtue without religion.
That`s not to say that I think people who believe in God are wrong. As long as people don`t do crappy things to each other in the name of God, I`m all for religion. I just don`t believe in a Creator.

bigoldjeffry: "Deal,friends. That`s logic."

No, that`s a big steaming pile of manure. Atheism is nothing more than a disbelief in the existence of a God or gods. It isn`t an "absolute faith" in or "worship" of self. You`re assuming that all atheists subscribe to some sort of empirical worldview, when one has very little to do with the other. While scientific method and findings may lead someone into atheism, and many athiests base their disbelief on science, that doesn`t make the two concepts irrevocably linked.

Also, I don`t think many here have a problem with the idea of Creationism as you`re putting it, theistic evolution and whatnot. It`s more the funtamentalists that claim the Earth is 6000 years old and every "kind" was created out of thin air and put here for the pleasure of humans that get under my skin.

Obviously people haven`t being exposed to the Flying Spaghetti Monster religion yet.

It essentially points out that to ridicule religion in favour of another is silly.

If you ridicule Christianity in favour of Atheism, that`s silly. If you ridicule Atheism in favour of Taoism, that`s silly.

Let people believe what the want. Your logic may not coincide with other`s logic. There is one universal truth, however, and that is that each person needs to believe in something (be in in God, a higher divinity, or themselves) in order to satiate the gap in their life that can only be filled with faith in what they believe.

With that said and out of the way, hahaha. Bananas.

Okay everyone, let`s all stop having a go at each other, join up, then start having a go at creationists. That`s what this argument was about. The atheists were inspecific, and the christians mistakenly took it as an insult towards them. Sure, if you believe in the creationist movement, complain, but how many people do anymore? The Big Bang theory is almost proved now, and evolution has been proved. I have nothing against those with a religion, even though I myself can`t believe, but what annoys me (and many christians I know) are the people who have taken the creation of everything by God too seriously. So that`s the end of my rant, and that was at the people who have posted here, not the video. Now lighten up and laugh at the goddam bananas.

And for the guy who calls him self a Christian but says he doesn`t go to church or celebrate easter or anything, you`re worse then the little kids whining about discrimination that never happened.
Being a lukewarm Christian like that gives nothing except showing that you`re afraid to believe in something.

Listen, children: when you lose a parent, when you lose a child, when a friend commits suicide, when the unexplainable happens, when you wake up one morning, dead to everything other than your own reflection--this is the kind of thing that leads to faith.

Faith has NOTHING to do with religion. It has everything to do with doctrine.

Grow up. When you`ve had a few years experience under your belt, then maybe you can decide that you don`t believe in God. Right now, you`re just an adolescent who needs some attention.

True, B-Hazard, there there is a difference between agnosticism and athiesm. Athiests just don`t believe, but agnostics are searching for the truth.

No, it`s not wasting your time to be a Christian without being religious. I`m a Christian, but I don`t affiliate myself with any denomination or go to church. I believe what I do out of free will. I don`t like everything that goes on in church. I don`t agree with their interpretations. Therefore, I don`t fit in with any one religion.

For starters, I don`t celebrate Easter. Most Christians do. I`m not a big fan of Christmas either. I do agree that RELIGION is bad for people. Being too religious often makes one lose sight of what they are going after in the first place.

I`m proud to claim to be a Christian, but I wouldn`t want to be lumped with the ignorant "prayer warriors."

I make fun of them just as much as the next guy.

This has completely pissed me off. I really love bananas, so I would appreciate it if you could find another fruit or vegatable to start a religious/political debate about. When i cut up a fresh banana and put it in a nice bowl of cereal or mix it in with some yogurt I do not want to be thinking about this conversation :)

Besides I think you have all missed the point, bananas taste good so who cares why or where they came from. They are here for us to eat and thats all that matters :P

Yep, proves God exists alright. If you live in a country that is able to grow bannanas in it`s climate. Then they`re not so convenient. And God won`t exist.

I am not naive enough to be religious. All arguments from religious people in defense of their religion is just as ridiculous as this guy in the video.

I really have no problem with religion and religious people as long as they leave me alone about it. But when they start intruding on my life in any way or try to push religion on me I get annoyed and sometimes hostile.

They have an invisible being that sees all and knows all that they talk to all the time, and base their entire lives on trying to please this being... sounds more like something they should be talking to a psychologist about and possibly taking medication to prevent...

Religion started as a way to keep people in check by telling them you get punished after you die for doing bad things, and you get rewarded after you die for doing good things… So in a way religion can be a good thing for the masses of people that buy into it. But stay out of my face with it.

He is correct, it was inteligently designed. Humans bred this type of banana for sale. They can not reproduce without the help of people.

-Excuse me, I must have forgotten that bashing Christians is the "cool" thing these days.

Seriously, people. Being a Christian and being religious are two completely different subjects. Most agnostics are oblivious to that.-

Agnostics don`t have a definate side as far as religion goes. I think you mean atheist. And no, it`s not the `cool thing to do` but most atheists in america are only exposed to catholicism when they decide it`s not logical (I`m not trying to say that`s wrong, but it`s true) AND its always catholics/christians that try and f*ck with them for being atheist. So it comes as a habit to only mess with that religion.

religion isnt poison. its the interpretations of it that cause problems. for example, could anyone really say that buddhism is poison? and jesus goes on about `love thy neighbour` which basically means everybody. who cares if some religous guy goes on a late-night show and uses a banana as an example of god`s existance? the banana is also an example of evolution. it jsut depends on what u believe. even if u do believe in god, u mit well think the man is talking rubbish.
anyway, its meant to be lighthearted fun.
and my r.e. teacher thinks he knows everything as well, ryan14. if u want soemthing good to use in ur r.e. lesson, look up `the flying spaghetti monster`. its classic stuff :p

Evolution *does* explain this phenomenon, if one would call it that. Personally I feel it`s a coincidence of nature. Lots of animals eat bananas that don`t hold the banana as we do as a prerequisite to eating it.

Ajikan, is that to say you consider old age a disease or natural disaster? I`m willing to bet more people in world history have died of old age more than of anything else.

"Ah Kirk Cameron, another washed up child actor trying to get back into the limelight."-gambit37

Well actually if he was trying to "get back into the limelight" he would be doing a bigger show than his religion show that comes on at like midnight. I love his show actually. He is trying to share the good word is all. Now this banana thing Im not exactly into I think its kind of a silly reasoning but whatever...

SpoonFork is misguided, DaSniper 88 is spot on. Also, if this `god` fellow is sooo awesome, then why did he put bananas way up in the trees of a limited area, instead of chest height all around the globe. God is either non-existent, or too stupid to worry about anyway.

SpoonFork.....religion has been the death of the most humans, period.
if not counting natural disasters and diseases.

ps, religion has existed loooong before recorded time. communism has only been around lately, and it isnt growing so much right now. but religion is.

religion is poison.

Religion has cased the death of more people than any other "group." Heres an example just off the top of my head, the Holocaust? Hitler not only SAID it was for god, but had the catholic church`s (the pope himself at the time) full blessing.

Okay, I signed up at this place just to ask a question; This guy says "Notice, it has a point at the top for ease of entry". Now, I`m sorry, but where is this guy going to put that banana that it has to have "ease of entry"? Yeah, he says it`s the perfect shape for the human mouth...but come on, you know I know what he`s thinking ;-)...technically he could be describing a penis ;-) and with that, I`ll probably be banned from the site forever. It was a fun 5 minutes guys. Latez.

I didnt say religion kills people so it must go, I said religion has no basis, proof, and is against logic and common sense and we havent learnt from our past mistakes. Bush led a pre-emptive strike to protect usa and now its changed to being for helping the iraqis, whatever the reason hes not killing for democracy. Im Atheist and if I kill a man who is about to murder my family, im not killing for Atheism, im killing to save them, nothing to do with religon. Your logic has more holes than swiss cheese.

Bananas were made just for us, just like everything else in the world. Arrogance and egocentrism.

And come on now, bananas? I`ve seen some silly creationist arguments, but those boys are reeeeaaaalllly reachin`.
