hunterS.dolansonI didnt say religion. I said God. The idea of God imo transcends anything religion has ever done of accomplished or meant.
and as far as religions starting wars, check out buddhism. Its pretty peaceful compared to most religions. Buddhism is what i would choose if i had to choose a religion as is.
But my idea of God is based on the fact that existence seems to be a thing.
id call my religion somethingism. If you want to preach nothingism (nihilism) then you gotta explain what the hell all this shit is doing here
1. Religion is literally faith in a specific God or set of gods ... If you believe in a specific higher power, then youre religious. If you honestly dont choose, then youre at the very least a theist.
2. Buddhism? Brrrruhh might I remind you of the Rohingya genocide thats been going on for like 4 years where tens of thousands of people have been murdered pillaged and literally gang raped
by local Buddhists and the Myanmar military and caused a massive refugee crisis - the largest refugee camp in the world right now - in Bangladesh...
Not to mention extremely aggressive sects around the buddhist world like the Ikkoikki, who while primarily defensive, also constantly raided and killed people in offensive attacks for years until Oda Nobunaga finally subjugated them...
3. Like I already stated, youre a theist. I claim to be more of an agnostic atheist - which is to say, I don't believe in god, but Im open to the idea if considerable proof is given - of which none has been presented to me that's even remotely adequate. The wonders of the universe don't lead me to think or even consider that this was all designed by something bigger. Even things that are not yet explained by physics and science dont prove that theres a god inherently, it just proves that theres limits to what we have learned scientifically and means we have a lot more to learn as a species. Which yeah, could lead to there being a 'god' but it sure doesn't mean that what cant be explained automatically by the merely 300 or so years of post-newtonian science means theres a god. We have a lot more to learn, and Im sure we can agree about that.
On that note.. The whole point of atheism is that the burden of proof is entirely on religious people or 'theists'. Atheists are inherently antireligious (anti-theistic if you will) about their positions... They dont have to prove shit. They are secure in their lives knowing that youre born and you die and maybe or probably nothing happens after that (nihilists feel a little bit stronger with the idea like theres probably nothing and live by that). Religious people (or fine... god believers or somethingists if that makes you feel warm and fuzzy) are compelled to answer entirely unnecessary questions such as 'whats the point of all this' or 'what put me here', and then feel like they must aggressively share the answers they have made up or been told about without any scientific proof. Atheists dont have to prove their position. Its not a religion nor is it organized.
If your presented evidence about there being a god doesnt convince me then I just go back to what I was already doing and nothing profound has changed in my life whatsoever.
I dont find anything cosmically special about humanity whatsoever. If theres a god(s) they sure seem to not give a flying fuck about us, or existence. You cant convince me for a second that children who were born with horrible deformities or painful conditions are part of God's plan and see that as a good thing. If theres really an omnipotent god, they can lick the asshole they so conveniently located next to my sweaty ass taint and hairy ass balls for allowing that kinda shit. God is either dead, or God could go fuck themselves. The end.
