I suppose I'm a Catholic...
I think Buddism seems like a nice religion. I dunno. I'll be Agnostic: God, but no Church

LOL when the dude with the hat describes the atheist world it sounded pretty cool.

But anyways, I'm going to say what I always say : religion is bullpoo. I'm not going to argue on if god exists or not because I'm an agnostic. But still, the THOUGHT of religion, any religion makes me sick.

oh my science... it just staggers me how people can understand part of a concept and just apply it completely wrong.

to be fair, i know that not all christians are such ignorant morons and that the video only represents a small sample of the worst of them (namely, the ones on the internet). forums?! that is the worst measure of actual public opinion you can get. this should instead be a video on the insanity of internet commenters.

(Incidentally this is assuming no greater method of charity, this is just a brief demonstration of the difference in concepts).

As a quick example of unemotional benevolence:

Say I am a millionaire, and I know how to invest money extremely well. My wealth I know for a fact will grow by 25% of the total every year. I have no cash.

I live in a country where everyone is dying of starvation. Year after year millions die. The more money I give them, the more I can save.

Emotional benevolence: Give them all your money. Now.
Unemotional benevolence: Give them not a penny, and invest that penny. Every year, until your death, you can gather a greater amount of money, and when you die, give it all away.

This provides a mathematically ideal form of charity, whilst seeming cruel. It isn't quite cruel, it is unemotional.

Ok, Jimbob:

I don't think anyone can know what God is in its entirety.

I classify myself as an Agnostic Sunni Muslim, and I think that is actually closer to the intent of the religion than many others propose.

"You can't know God" is not supposed to mean just shut off your brain and follow blindly. It means try to understand, but accept that the goal is probably never within reach. Either because you cannot prove every point, or because you're likely to make mistakes along the way.

I currently expect God to probably be:
Creator, Sentient, Non-Anthropomorphic, Eternal, Benevolent(no omni), but possibly Unemotional.

Loosely Omnipotent, but I think that term is generally misunderstood. If he is the divisor of rules, or if he can create energy (or matter), I would suggest that could be classified as omnipotence.

That definition isn't in Merriam-Webster/OED/Dictionary.com .

Bhuddists don't believe in a supernatural being. (Yet religion)
People who believe in ghosts do. (Yet not).

Jimbob: GTG to work but will respond later.

Oh and as an aside, I used to know the guy who started FSTDT before he died.

Its serious. Go to the site fstdt.com that's where they got all of these quotes. It's great. Each quote links back to the post it came from.

I suppose the one thing that gets me about these sort of things is that when a certain whacked out sub-group of ANY organization is shown, in no uncertain terms, to be as whacked out as they are; no member of the larger group is willing to finger them as whack jobs just like everyone who is not in the larger group.

To try and make more sense of that: like this video shows, there are people who believe in God who have their heads up their asses. I like to point and laugh at those people. There are other people who also believe in God who are faced with two choices; they can either take offense, and create a strawman argument that I am somehow laughing at the whack jobs BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE IN GOD, or they can laugh at the whack jobs with me.

It's the people who think that the first choice is better than the second choice, who get my goat. They believe it is better because then they are *somehow* showing solidarity in their belief in God, rather than accept one of their own is nuts.

Baalthazaq, I may be wrong but I get the impression that you do believe in a God but will openly admit that you're not sure what exactly it is. I have to say for starters that if this is the case then I totally respect your religious views.

I guess to a degree I would personally perceive you as a philosopher as opposed to a religious follower as you don't seem to limit yourself to any particular belief system (but I don't want to get in to an argument over semantics).

However, I am curious as to what other properties you believe God does or could posses. I personally find it difficult to logically justify an argument for a God beyond 'creator' which does not stumble over some sort of moral realm.

ok, yes. There are SOME stupid theologists. Yes, there are stupid religious people. But, there are also stupid atheists, stupid republicans, stupid democrats, stupid black people, stupid white people, stupid men, stupid women, stupid pro-lifers, stupid pro-choicers, stupid, fat people, stupid skinny people, etc, etc. THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THE VIEWS THESE PEOPLE HAVE ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF ALL CHRISTIANS OR RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISTS! I happen to be a recently converted Catholic. Does that make me stupid? No. Many of you don't believe in God. Do I agree with you? No. Does your belief make you stupid? No. Are you stupid? Maybe, maybe not. You cannot judge an entire group of people based on some stupid things that a few of the people in that group said... especially if the thoughts expressed were taken from an online forum, which is possibly the lowest form of human communication, second only to YouTube comments.

As an atheist, I hate everyone and think life is pointless and I'm going to kill myself right now.

But not until I've taken some of you fu*kers with me!

Hi. I'm jacobtrue13. That was a little piece I wrote back in the 70s. I think you'll agree it timeless.

Lets go have gay sex. drat you mike.

the definition of Religion is the belief of a supernatural being. there fore, even if you want agnostics and atheists to be considered religions, it cant happen because it is NOT believing in a supernatural being. but yea in response to the video, hilarious. the guys they quoted are dumbasses. not to say that all of them are like that, just a lot of people are dumbpoos about these things. like the guy who said that we believe in science without even questioning it, and then proceeds to say that he doesn't care how god did what he did, he just knows he did it. do these idiots realize what they are saying?!?

Question 1)
I find that perfectly acceptable. I could be persuaded that was the case, but I don't have a fixed opinion on the matter.

2) I'm an agnostic theist. I hold that god has several properties beyond being just a creator, but my interpretation of God is still somewhat malleable. I don't think we can fully interpret God, but I don't think that means we shouldn't try.

3) "Would you agree that the possibility of an infinite universe is more likely than an infinite God that created an infinite or finite universe?"

I disagree here I think, but I'm not sure what you mean by an infinite God. As I'm open to several interpretations of God, one of the possibilities remains that God is actually quite simple, even if infinite in some sense (Timelessness for example is fine by me).

I find various types of God unlikely. Anthropomorphic Gods in particular I find unlikely.
