Recently there was a healthy discussion to a question on the BC discussion board
My earlier posts on Life and Creation were somewhere coincidentally touching on the subject, so my reply was reflecting my earlier posts, I make you available those replies. And would like to know your thoughts on the subject.
Many views were put forward by both the protagonists and the antagonists about the Creation theory, nevertheless subject concerns all of us. And I think I will discuss it further in my next post
My comment to that question, I am sharing it with you...
I think it's nothing wrong in expressing views at all. And also believing in whatever state one he/she believes in.What views you have regarding this question ? What are your views regarding Life, Creation, Atheism and Faith ?
But I think the problem is, when we does not believe in ourselves, i.e., not being truthful to the state of mind that we feel that we're in. And that could be anything like belief in the Creation or otherwise I think.
As far as understanding religions and God is concerned, I don't think God has ever sought ill about it's creation.
We could look for many examples in the animal life too. Like mammals in animal life bringing up their young with same affection as the humans do. That doesn't give an outright explanation that God does exist.
Because it instills such a fear in the hearts of humans, that here we're to fight and kill and extinct the human race in the name of religion. That's where the pre conceptions of humans about God is wrong.
Again I would like to stress, that I am not trying to prove that God does exist. And many religions proscribe violence.
So where ever life exists, there's a struggle for existence. Be it human race or animal kingdom. Why so ?
I think misinterpreting and changing religious texts might be partly responsible. But still one day every life is going to end, considering the latest medical research, man is still mortal.
But before this short life of ours ends, we have some time to sit, think and ponder. It's not about being Religious or being an Atheist. It's about making the right call I think. Whether or not you like it. Because I think in this world there's not all that we like.
Here's a world and it has got its problems with everything and there's very few solutions....... Why ?
That's where it ends, whether we're atheists or religious, life's gonna end. It doesn't matter whether we're religious or atheists, but it matters what is inside of us, what we think about...
