what is Morgan Freeman's nationality again?
Black American, which is why I put that on seperately, despite the accusations of "racism" that were immediately shoved my way.imanerd000 said:what is Morgan Freeman's nationality again?
Yup I do. Some of the greatest minds of all time did so I thought I'd give it a try too. When you really think about a deity or group of deities existing and I mean REALLY think about it, it ends up making sense. Some people argue and say "Oh there's so much misery in the world where are your deities now pall? HA gotcha...me sure be smarts..me atheist now...cool kids all atheist...me atheist...me accepted...me hardcore intellectual go wikipedia! Bow down to the new mastermind of the universe (ò-ó) I have figured it all out". Trying to judge the actions or intentions of a being that is supposedly above you as being bad can't be very healthy on ones brain. All a person can really do is accept that whatever that being says or does is always more correct than anything our tiny monkey brains can conjure up.Techno Squidgy said:Ah, this is just a case of you taking a different meaning from the use of the word believe to me. You mean believe as in trust, whereas I mean believe as in acceptance of a possibility. To me believing in a god and believing in said god's existence mean the same thing.ManueleunaM said:If you believe in someone or have faith in them that means you trust that person will be there for you if you need him/her for example or that you believe in what they say. It's about trust mainly.Techno Squidgy said:
Believing that person exists is something different. For example: "I don't believe this Robert you speak of exists." Get it?
For example I don't like hearing people say they believe in the devil because that's the same as saying they trust in it or they believe in what it says. It might not be what they mean but it is what was said. What people really want to say is that they believe it exists.
You can acknowledge God's existence but trusting Him gets complicated since you can't see Him and life is basically shit most of the time.
You're probably right by the way. It makes more sense doesn't it, since almost everything in the Universe is basically energy, even if that energy is manifested in different forms. And if one follows the theory that everything is connected in the Universe that could explain how we are in an indirect way a part of God.Techno Squidgy said:On a serious note, I don't believe in a anthropomorphic god. I feel if there is a god, it'd be more like an energy than anything else.
I understand where you're coming from now.
I assume you yourself believe in the existence of a deity?
