Make your own God.

If you were the one to invent God (I feel this is going to get some crazy Christians to say no one invented God because he’s actually a real thing), how would you portray him? Would you make him evil or would you make him nice and loving?

I’d start off by making him nice, obviously. Who would really want an evil God that would want people murdered who didn’t follow his rules?

To make it easier for people to believe I’d set something to be “God” like a statue or something. It would be much easier to prove that he’s there because, well… It’s actually there and not some invisible being like the one people currently believe in.

I would make a heaven, but not a hell. Why would a nice God want people to be damned to the pits of hell for all eternity? Doesn’t seem like a guy I’d like to meet at all!

I would have a set of rules, kind of like they currently have but minus a few. Obviously not to kill another person would be one of them. I definitely would not make it a sin to be gay.

Now I’d like all of you to complete this God. Whatever you feel needs to be added leave as a comment. Be serious, please. Nothing bad :P.

What happens when you die?

Although no one can no for certain what happens when you die what do you think happens when we pass?

I believe when we die, we cease to exist completely, no heavenly paradise, no promise of virgins, no nirvana, no hell. We just die and everything goes black.

The thing I find awesome about being an atheist is that you don’t have to worry about pleasing god or gods and going to hell. But Christians are damned anyways, the bible states that no ones ascends to heaven so they’re doing everything for nothing.

“And no man has ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of man [Christ]” (John 3:13).

So, back to the question. What do you think happens when we die?

When did you know you were Atheist?

For me, I’d have to say I knew I was an Atheist 2 to 3 years ago, when I was around 14 years old. I never really believed in a higher power but I knew for certain I was Atheist then. It didn’t seem rational, if I didn’t believe in Santa, the tooth fairy, or the easter bunny, why believe in an additional invisible being?

My mom believes in God, we went to church when I was younger (I had no choice) but I was never interested, even at a younger age. All I could think about is why am I spending my Sunday doing something I don’t want to do? Instead I could have been outside with my friends, doing something I actually enjoyed.

When did you know you were an Atheist? If you’re a believer in something, when did you know you believed? Please keep it civilized.

Do we need religion to make good decisions?

In response to an article I read earlier;

I don’t think you need religion to make good decisions, if you can’t make good decisions on your own, without religion then you have no head of your own. Also, I don’t think religion helps make good decisions, I highly doubt 9/11 was a good decision, nor the crusades.

I’m an Atheist (like the person who wrote the article) and I make fine decisions on my own, no religion telling me what’s right and wrong, I know what’s right and what’s wrong, it’s common sense. I don’t need a religion to tell me not to murder people.

I think I follow Christian values better than many Christians do.

I think this is a really good point and I’d think so to.

Without religion I could do what I want without worrying if I’m pleasing Jesus or God.

What do you guys think? Does religion influence the decisions you make?
