• Atheists: Is your atheism based on logic and reason or rebellion against religious abuse?

    Best answer: It's based on "good" reasoning and a huge knowledge base where the concept of God becomes that of a square circle where I can actually know why both are impossible.

    Best answer: It's based on "good" reasoning and a huge knowledge base where the concept of God becomes that of a square circle where I can actually know why both are impossible. Usually when people are upset with a religion, they change/convert to another religion that they feel is a closer fit to what they perceive a real God might be like. It's like buying a lemon of a car, you don't swear off of cars, you recognize certain makes and models as lemons or you realize you did not do you due diligence in checking out a problematic good car. Theists will be theists regardless of getting upset at a religion or denomination of a religion. My atheism is based on having a "natural" uncaused cause, which is energy itself, since it cannot be created, nor destroyed. Energy can only convert into other forms of energy, with no extra or no diminished return from the conversion. The other thing is the natural order of all existence, which is always from simple to complex over time. There is not one thing that naturally forms or is intelligently created by us humans that does not go through a series of simple steps over time to form/create the finished or more complex product. There is a reason that nature stops at our "natural" resources and will never form an automobile. We contrast our intelligence to nature which is void of intelligence. This contradiction to the natural order absolutely places the concept of God into the square circle category and is not possible. Combine this with the human ignorance found in all holy books and the irrational reasoning of theists, and it becomes clear why a case will never be made for Gods/Goddesses, the concept is magical because it cannot naturally occur.

  • Is sex and money (worldly enjoyment) an obstacle to come closer to God?

    Best answer: Anything in excess can become an obstacle to living right. Closer to God is only a state of mind, there are other things far more important to think about.

    Best answer: Anything in excess can become an obstacle to living right. Closer to God is only a state of mind, there are other things far more important to think about. Excessive thoughts about God also becomes an obstacle to living right as we turn to our radical, fanatical religious friends who have become unhinged and derailed. The mind needs protection and guidance to live right, where thoughts of God can become your living hell because it depends on "your" thought process.

    Best answer: A hero is usually only a hero from the perspective of those who were saved from an unfavorable event, even if that unfavorable event is in the minds of the individuals. Heroes don't have to be brave and often don't know they are going be perceived as heroes. Gods/Goddesses can be seen as heroes if a life changing event is perceived to be from God. This would also be true of magical fairies, should anyone dare to credit them for a life changing event. Sometimes parents are seen as heroes by their children.

  • "Resurrection" is more important than the "death and burial" of Jesus, since these are figurative to represent a factual reality. True/false?

    Best answer: The resurrection is the point. This is meant to demonstrate that Jesus was no ordinary human, he has magical powers that is assumed to only come from the God Jesus supposedly believed in.

  • Why are atheists such rude people?

    Best answer: Dealing with irrational people causes some rational people to become frustrated. This comes across as rudeness, but so does good reasoning to many theists. How dare you make a reasonable case against my beliefs, how rude.

    Best answer: Asking for help is usually a good way of getting help, but this applies to all people, if you are asking "real" beings for help. Asking God for help is like asking your wall for help.

  • Why are poor people most likely to believe in God?

    Best answer: Because people who are bad at money tend to be bad at a lot of things in life. A personal God sounds more appealing to those in need, especially those who cannot figure things out and constantly make bad life decisions. This is also why convicts and people with addition problems often seek God for help.

The even more interesting part is that humans can "imagine" all sorts of things that are not. The even more interesting thing is that many times humans have imagined what does not exist only to bring it into existence. DVD's used to not exist and were only "imagined", now they exist. Mind blown.

    Best answer: Yes. It would probably help to define spirituality. When I watch theists talk about being spiritual, I get two impressions, one is that they don't even really know what they mean, and two, in attempting to define spirituality it really comes across as developing emotional well-being. Theists attempt this emotional well being through believing in magic and that certainly works. Some Asian religions strive for emotional well being by being one with nature and appreciating it's beauty. Then there are many new age religions that use the art of positive thinking and asking the universe for emotional well being. Then there are philosophies and other psychological ways to encourage emotional well being. Emotional well being is the most important aspect that overrides physical and mental well being because our emotions (our spirit) is what motivates us to take charge of the other two (mental and physical). The smartest man alive will not feel motivated to use his brain if he feels down in the dumps. From this perspective, we are all spiritual in terms of looking for ways to pump us up so that we can take on the challenges of life.

    Best answer: I guess technically from ignorance. The primary purpose for becoming a christian is to believe you have grace from God in the form of Jesus, but that is only a belief. The faith/trust comes from seeing things to trust within Christianity, which is almost always a case of faulty reasoning that when corrected lands them into being an ex-Christian. One of the reasons I find Christianity so interesting is that on the surface there is an excellent case to support Christianity. It's only in the details that the religion collapses like a house of cards.

  • What is the different between array with looping and array without looping?

    Best answer: An array is simply a table of data. With looping, the data can be read/written sequentially as it goes through either the whole table or just part of the table/array. Without looping, the individual cells of the array are read/written to randomly. If looping is possible, it condenses the lines of code considerably.
