Just as there is no positive expectation in craps, so is there no God in this world.

We're it, baby.

Works for me.

Yes there is a God.

There is so much more to this world than what we see or know.

Works for me at least.

The world is flat! If you try to drive beyond the horizon you will fall off. Works for me!

But when you get the chance, please explain how the universe was created if you can neither create nor destroy matter.

(snip my answer)

And I just noticed which area this thread is in... I need to unsubscribe(*) myself from this section to avoid a round of cyclical arguments we've already had several times before, and remember the 5 rules of being on the internet.

(*) Which I can't, I know.

This whole thing is getting stupid. If everybody wants
to discuss religion so much, go to a Bible forum.

That isn't the point.

I don't claim to KNOW how the universe, or more likely, the multiverses came into existence, but I put more weight in string theory than I would in the Catholic Church.

Really, this popular notion of a white bearded "god" sending his "son" to earth(if Jesus was really god's son before he came to earth, then who was god's Old Lady?), only to be crucified for "our sins," whatever the hell that means, is beyond absurd.

Almost as stupid as the notion of an afterlife.

News in Brief
God Loses Decision-Making Coin

HEAVEN–God confirmed that He has misplaced His special decision-making coin. "I have no idea where I put it," a visibly distraught God said of the coin, which He has used for more than four billion years to determine everything from the direction of breezes to genocides. "I remember flipping it last night for [Monroe, MI, couple Mark and Patti Brenton's] attempt at conception, but I haven't seen it since." God said He hopes to locate the coin




That should be enough proof there is somebody in charge.

If you want to talk Mormonism then that's a whole other can of worms.

I'll give Mormons credit for watching out for one another, i.e. having and implementing true charity, but that's about it.

Their theology is a whacked out as the Scientologists.
