    Evidence for god.

    So was thinking before....

    Everyone believed in father Christmas as a child and at a certain age you are told it's not real and you think to yourself 'of course it's not real how can a man fly to billions of houses in one night, how can a reindeer fly etc...

    I wonder why that's not the same with religion? As an infant of course you're going to believe a man Walked on water or turned water into wine etc...but when you reach adulthood surely you're going to ask some questions.

    The difference is that Father Christmas is made up, but God is real. I know this because I live in America.

    But religion is about faith. Believing without seeing.

    I have a question for the athesits out there. What do you believe happens after death? Does it give you comfort to think we are gone and that is it? Does it not give you comfort to think your dead relatives\friends are in a better place?

    I witnessed a miracle when Aguero scored his 93:29 goal to win us the title.

    You think something happens after death, really ? I suppose turning into worm food is an option.

    Firstly I would completely disagree about 'being in a better place'.
    And secondly, what do I believe after death? I believe there is nothing. Like it felt before you was born there Is nothing. One of my favourite quotes by mark Twain - "I do not fear death.
    I had been dead for billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it"
     
  7. It's a state of mind, nothing more nothing less and doesn't half cause some shit. Don't get me started on football either.
