    "Why Didn`t Anyone Tell Me?"

    Well, DUH! This is what I`ve been trying to tell you. You have been brainwashed by a religious culture. Wake up and realise religion is a delusion and there are far more plausible explanations from everything.

    When you look back, you may miss your false god from time to time, but he was never with you. You were talking to yourself when you were begging for help.

    That`s a good video in what it`s saying but it`s only a bitesize chunk of the knowledge you would need to even begin to understand "everything". If you could read all of those books and really digest what the authors are saying, if you could really understand quantum mechanics and wrap your brain around what is really still just theoretical concepts in a human brain, it would only open up more questions. We don`t understand, we are not supposed to. Having said that, it`s a good place to start from.

    Dead on, Draculya. It is a brainwashing. One that starts when you are old enough to talk. You are told you have to believe and that to question is an offense punishable by an eternity in fire. You are told hundreds of stories and told to take shelter with the other sheep.

    Breaking free of the brainwashing, especially when your family and friends are brainwashed as well, is one of the hardest thing to do. I was able to look back and see the lies and tricks. I was able to break free. It is one thing that I wish others in my life were able to do. It is a very freeing and wonderful thing to let go of the evil, controlling religious beast and embrace the logical facts that had been there, all along.

    This guy will be crying at the feet of the Lord our God one day and be asking that same question, "Why didn`t anybody tell me?".

    Quite a lot of today`s `science` is an invention in someone else`s mind to try and rationalize what can not be rationalized. The cutting edge of science has turned in philosophy now, with just as many preachers of it as there are theories.

    Science will never be able to answer the most interesting and important questions in your life.

    Here`s one that will really bake your noodle, I know I know it`s an old program but if you can find it somewhere on the net, WATCH IT. The Big Bang wasn`t The "Big" bang, our known universe is just a bubble in a waaaaay bigger universe that looks like swiss cheese. Like I said, noodle: baked. http://ow.ly/a8iiq

    Crakr, your comment is complete horsepoo. Not to mention i`d rather look for honest answers to my questions based on reality, rather then fairy tales of murderous, malevolent gods cooked up to make me feel safe. There is no greater comfort to me than the truth, and the effort that goes in to finding it.

    This guys a c*nt. His videos are more akin to science encroaching on philosophical questions than anything else. I just can`t believe that any scientist anywhere can honestly admit to themselves that what they think they know to be true can be the whole picture. It just irks me when people like to think that they have all the answers.

    CrakrJak - "Science will never be able to answer the most interesting and important questions in your life."
    I respect your right to your beliefs, but I must take issue with this statement. Science answered the most intersting and important question in 1930 when James Alexander Dewar asked "how can I get delicious cream filling inside a moist, golden sponge cake." The rest, as they say, is history.

    So... we have an adult man sitting in a bubble bath playing with a rubber ducky; when all of the sudden he starts laughing hysterically at the colors on some bubbles. He then gets out of the tub, and says "Why didn`t anyone tell me?" and thinks he is a scientific and religious authority.

    I think he suffers from Delusional Disorder, Grandiose Type .

    Sounds more like "Zen" than science to me...

    Interesting idea, what he`s talking about, not the best presentation though. What`s with all the monkies? (I know, some are chimps or apes, details!)

    If you like the idea that once you`re dead, that`s IT: game over! Then fine for you! I`m hoping for an afterlife, thanks!

    I think many of you miss the point. What he`s talking about is that once in a lifetime mind expanding moment where one "gets it". Everything is one. He presents it from a scientific knowledge angle, denouncing religion (needlessly) in the process. However, some may call it a religious experience. Others may experience it through psychedelic drugs or meditation, maybe a near death experience... it doesn`t really matter, it`s all the same thing.

    Has.. has no one else had this moment?

    I had a moment like this 20 years ago. I solved the problem of the large-scale structure of the Universe. Nobody listened, so I moved on. They`re still floundering trying to figure it out. When they do, I`ll show them the proof that I thought of it first. If they don`t figure it out before I die, I`ll have the formula carved into my headstone.

    Yeah, once, when I ended up in hospital one time. It`s amazing how logical it seems at the time and the clarity you feel in the moment, but it`s equally amazing looking back and realising how utterly spaced out you know you were at the time. Morphine`s a hell of a drug.

    @ Gerry - I love you man - you make me laugh!

    @ 5cats - I don`t recall him saying there was no afterlife. He said we came from the stars and that we are the universe.
    Maybe, just maybe we return to the stars when we leave here? Maybe all those bright and beautiful colorful nebula`s we see in space are `Heaven`? And just maybe, religion doesn`t play any part in it whatsoever.

    What was the revelation?
    Also, it`s not spelled "revalation."

    And, maybe it`s not a battle between evolution and creationism. Maybe they are both correct, or maybe they are both wrong. Maybe God designed our world from the "big-bang." Nobody knows, that`s why people have faith...faith in God and/or faith in science. As for me, I have faith in both.

    He didn`t have to @indisguise, I`ll bet the farm he believes there is none.
    Science says any talk of "souls" or "spirits" is bunk; there is no afterlife in science! We`re just meat-machines and when the final bell tolls? We rot.

    Right=on @DingDingDong! The Big Bang just popped out of nowhere? Or God created it, evolution and all that fancy stuff. Why is one more believable than the other?
    Believers see `miracles` (signs of God`s existance) all around them, and scientists see poo they cannot explain. Non-locality? THAT is freaky stuff!

    @5Cats

    The whole "Where did the Big Bang come from" argument is not very valid. No one is saying that it popped out of no where. Folks always claim that there is no explanation or theories that can explain it. But, it`s actually simple.

    The Big Bang could have been a perforating of another dimension. As to where that dimension came from? Or any previous ones? It`s simple as well. They always existed.

    Religious folks seem to have no problem accepting "eternity". Why is it so hard to believe that the Universe always was and always will be. It wasn`t created. It just always was.

    As for one theory being more believable than another, you have to be kidding me? Matter spread out across the Universe, slowly over the past 13.7 billion years, in a pattern that we can still see today. Your theory? A magical, invisible sky wizard made everything by snapping his fingers then he made people; Men first, then he made women out of m

    "The Bible has the answers to life that science doesn`t even have a clue about."


    Making up fictional answers are not really answers are they? Name one proven biblical answer to life, and if you even imply the bible does not need proof to be true look up `circular reasoning` and just consider that my response to your BS.

    "You fail and don`t even know why. You just tried to equate religion with science with your lame rebuttal."

    It is just your arguement with "religion" exchanged where you put "science", I then switched places for "theories" and "preachers". It is your arguement and the reason YOUR arguement is lame is because you can plug different words in and the arguement is in essence,the same, your arguement has no substance.

    You`re putting your emotions in, even though there is no point in doing so. In the grand scheme of things, we are mammals, animals just like any other animal. As the cycle perpetuates, we die, and other life forms come after us. The thing about "souls" or "spirits", is that it appeal to your emotions. Many people engage in this emotional activity, when in reality, there is nothing there except wishful thinking.

    The reason why one theory is more believable than others, is simply because one has 100`s of years of research, understanding and science behind it, while others have nothing more than fantasies of grandeur, brought into light by very intellectually primal people.

    I wrote alot and deleted it. I just wish all religon died. That way I would waste less time telling people to go away when they knock on my door. It`s rude y`now. Makes me want to stalk them and wake them up at 3am and ask them if they were interested in going to a gay bar or something off cuff.

    Seriously though it would make life alot simpler. There still would be crime and all that but alot of wasted money could actually help people and alot of wasted time could be used to actually do something useful. If a single prayer is said at my funeral I`m gonna come back and start kicking people in the nuts.

    True though that religon probably stops some crime because of fear or faith. I`d like to think that most nice people like myself are nice not because of religon but because the boys in blue would kick our asses otherwise XD
