I'm okay with people being religious.

The way I figure it they're right about there being life after death and the non-religious are right about the supernatural being fictitious. I don't favor one group over the other. I guess this makes me a moderate, but I'm not a fence-sitter. I have strong views. 馃檪

how's religion wrong and the afterlife right? just curious, i'm not looking to argue.

[@1233853,Krissta] love too thank you
TeenAngelF
[@4199,BlueVeins] Our universe is finite, but the cosmos is infinite. You're sort of on the right track.
BlueVeins18-21
[@1233853,Krissta] the universe is finite? How do you figure?
Determined1F
Nothing wrong with being a fence sitter & you owe nobody any explanation. Nobody really knows anything. They just pretend they do.
Determined1F
[@875046,Carlisle] yeah. I personally have known a great scientist.
CarlisleF
[@1208288,D7A7G7] many great scientist s are published and have come up with very Intersting theories.
I can鈥檛 say my math is good enough to start proving theories just yet.
Determined1F
[@875046,Carlisle] I can't prove squat, but I know humans don't want to think there's nothing when they die.

I鈥檓 okay with people being religious. I just don鈥檛 like when they start to get angry with you for not believing in what they believe. I had a Jehovah鈥檚 Witness here at SW tell me last week that I support Nazis and pedophiles because I didn鈥檛 agree with her that only the people who love Jesus will go to heaven
CarlisleF
[@1220692,Jenny1234] thats mean. ye I鈥檓 the same. My mom used to be heavy on religion. It just pushed me away. The constant talks about people going to hell. Didn鈥檛 like it.
I did used to have a Jehovah鈥檚 Witness come around. She would come in have a cup of tea and talk she was nice.

[@875046,Carlisle] i used to babysit a JW girl. Her mother was my coworker and her mother was divorced and leaving the church. The daughter tried to tell me what my daughter could and could not watch on tv. When her father found out I wasn鈥檛 JW, she wasn鈥檛 allowed to come back
CarlisleF
[@1220692,Jenny1234] thats mean. Putting that stuff into to little kids too鈥

Belief based on emotion I can understand. Not so much when logic and reason is applied. The evidence is lacking.
BlueSkyKingM
[@1233853,Krissta] Detectable, measurable, and repeatably testable qualifies as scientific evidence. Music is very mathematical. I was looking at a past post of yours.
TeenAngelF
[@1200996,BlueSkyKing] You have much to learn. If everyone could visit heaven on demand that would be testable evidence not measurable by any science existing now or in the future. And music is neither mathematical in its conception nor appreciation. It's a mixture of innovation and repetition of the emotionally pleasing kind. You're protecting the poor method and belief you've latched onto.
BlueSkyKingM
[@1233853,Krissta] Heaven (and hell) is an imaginary concept that varies with every individual. All music is sounds but all sounds are not music. Belief isn鈥檛 needed, the physics are clear. Octaves can be shown visibly. Music is also a language. That uses notations that are math based. Meaning anyone can reproduce with the appropriate instrument or computer program.

I tolerate people with religious views - we won't know for sure til we're dead anyway
TeenAngelF
[@15458,Pretzel] Are you assuming that there is an afterlife and that memory is retained? You omitted the possibilities of never knowing and knowing beforehand.
Pretzel61-69, M
[@875046,Carlisle] a self fulfilling prophecy?
Pretzel61-69, M
[@1233853,Krissta] I think when you die you fully cease to exist

I myself had out of body experience during my brain surgery. Before that I didn't believe existence of soul apart from body.
im not ok with the current language that religious ppl hold 'extremist views'..

gad dang society's built around the bible.

weird.
CarlisleF
I鈥檓 ok with strong views as long as we don鈥檛 alienate people by over generalising.
I鈥檓 not religious.
NightsWatchM
i'll pray for your recovery 馃榿
TeenAngelF
[@935348,NightsWatch] Your input isn't helpful.
NightsWatchM
[@1233853,Krissta] rarely is
EmortalM
I suspect heaven is just a parallel universe. 馃榿
nightjourney26-30, F
