Re: Although there is no God, Heaven DOES exist nonetheless

How do I know that souls exist? Isn't omnibenevolence superior to the Golden Rule? I am convinced that omnibenevolence is the best code of conduct. I just need to upgrade myself with omniscience and omnipotence to go along with my omnibenevolence. Then I can go back in time and prevent all suffering...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Compassionist, When I said Hitler was humane, I was sarcastically comparing Hitler to the Old Catholic Church! Would you rather die first and then burn, or would you prefer to be burned alive? Note that I said "old" Church, because the modern Church doesn't do that anymore! However, the C...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Sorry for the typo on my last post. The christian Church in the Inquisition and Witch Hunts burned more than 10 million people to death at the stake! Victor Hugo's estimate for the Inquisition is over 5 million. Prof. of Archeology at Un. of California, Marija Gimbutas,said that in the witch hunts ...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Suppose that Jesus was the founder of Christianity 20 Centuries ago. If he were to come to Earth today to see what people were doing to his teachings he would be dumbfounded! One of his Churches burned over 10 thousand people at the stake! One of them said he went to America to start the Church of ...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Compassionist is right. The religion that Buddha founded is much different than the corrupted Buddhism we see today. There was no reincarnation etc. in the original Buddhim. You just meditated until you arrived at nirvana, the ultimate mental state of peace and ecstasy! It's like the original teach...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Compassionist, You can find “My Near Death Experience" at post #44 joke 40 on this thread. It's not a joke, it's just as true as all those other NDE's that the Fundies claim is true! I see that you are one of those AI (artificial intelligence) fans awaiting the day when intelligent and moral r...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

No, I didn't see you post on Near Death Experiences. I searched for it but couldn't find it. Please post a link to it, thanks. Yes, people have killed each other in the name of religions. People have also killed each other for many other reasons e.g. politics, greed, vengeance, family honour, fear, ...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

you both like Buddhism? Maybe Vinnie does not, and I am not sure that I do. Buddhists in practice seem capable of persecuting others, as we see in the case of the Myanmar Rohingyas, and the Buddhist belief in reincarnation leads to various practical abuses as well as to ludicrous metaphysics. For i...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Dear Compassionist, Yes, Buddhists have a very high standard of morality, much better than God. The Buddhist Ho Fengshan saved thousands of Jews from Hitler's gas chambers, but God didn't save a single one! However, their "reincarnation" is just as silly as Heaven and Hell. They believe t...

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Hi Compassionist, There are two reasons for being a vegetarian. One is for reasons of health. The other is a matter of morality. I think that a devout Buddhist is a vegetarian for the same reason as you. However, sometimes you have to draw a line between which animals can be killed and which can't....

Re: God was a Jew and other jokes

Hi, Compassionist, Your analysis is very similar to mine. The problem is "Brain Washing". When a child is born, he has a blank ROM. Many things that he learns during these formative years like language, religion, social customs, love for his family etc. are hard-wired into his ROM and rem...

Dear Compassionist, Thanks for the comment. I agree with you, of course God is imaginary. However, more than half the population of the Earth worship this imaginary God who used to call himself "The God of Abraham" and now calls himself "Allah"! This imaginary God has created mo...

Hi everybody! I'm back from my vacation with some more geeky thoughts i'd like to share with my friends here. The title of today's post is: Man is more righteous than God! What role did God play in the Holocaust? Who were helping the Jews? There were many people helping the Jews during the Holocaus...

Re: In 2017, UK water companies still rely on “magic”

Dear Compassionate, If you were by the sea and saw someone walking on the water, wouldn't you call that magic? Magic is the breaking of the Laws of nature. Modern man believes that the Laws of Nature are immutable, ie. can't be broken. The "magic" we see at magic shows are just illusions ...

your last question, Compo: answer is yes it would be better if there were just one country and set of laws, but only if these were the right ones! :D I would agree a good way on Nick over this. Sanctions over human rights and FTM animal welfare abuses might work in principle, but usually they don't...

Re: How can we protect everyone's human rights equally?

Thank you Nick and animist for your replies. I agree that some religions and cultures breach human rights and I think protecting human rights should be prioritised over respecting religions and cultures. After all, people (and other sentient beings) suffer and die. Ideas don't need protection becaus...
