Re: This is why religion scares me....
Those youtube clips are hilarious.
I see the same stupidity on the religious channels on sky that i obeserve out of curiosity. They choose to be so fanatic about there beliefs that they will go to ridculous lengths to prove them.
Anyway i have read various pages in this topic, not going to bother reading it excessively all the way through, only going to input a few of my own views on the subject that has been vigoursly been tooken under disscusion.
I myself have admired the possible theory of universial design. Many years ago before i heard about it from others, i came upwith a similar theory that the world was designed to a certain extent as i observed the world around me. Though i cringe that it was designed by some god that made everything down to the very exact detail. I more or less combine the theory of design with the theory of evolution, rather than with a creator.
Perhaps god did design the universe, really depends on one's own interpertaion of god.
The more we unravel of the cosmos the tendecy we all have to believe that it has been designed.
Great scientists amongs themselves have belived in some form of the design theory. Among them was Albert Enistien who dedicated is whole life trying to achive unification of the universe, the law of all laws, the greater truth of all truths. Enstien wanted to find out the whole workings of the universe which may explain more about the source of how everything started. Undoubtably he died failing his quest in life, the unification of the universe. This is where string theory can be quite intresting.
I agree with one of the members that the design theory could all be done to probability which shouldn't be ignored or missed-out. Probability if i remeber, right is the basis for quantum phisics. It suggests that anything and everything is at the mercy of probability. An example would be if you droped a glass of milk it is likely to fall to the floor and shatter though there is always the probability that it could come back up together again however unlikely that may be. Another example is if you were to lean on a wall there is a probability that you will eventually go through it. Though you would have to do so for million or billions of years before you eventually did. Abert enstien dissaproved the theory and i quote "God throws darts not dice" There were scientists who didn't want to believe the theory because it scared them greatly as probability never fitted into there strict laws that they were used to.
Heres a link from a news paper article that you may find intresting
It could be debated though that probability itself is a design feature.
Wether true or not its hard too dismiss the design theory or prove it. One thing can be certain it makes a very debatable subject.
I have debated many times before between my father and i about wether religion is the source of such evils in the current world and so forth. Through the few brief pages i went through i noticed there is much dislike about christanity or religion overall.
I personally think that christanity shouldn't be looked in a factual way, rather more as a poetic way. Christians who see the bible as pure fact without any shred of evidence to support there claim is insane.
Looking at those youtube clips its no suprise why people are afraid of religion. To be fair though i still believe that religion is not at fault but the people who doctrine the interpertaion of religion who create fanatics and extremists, raging havoc among society.
Science can be just as deadly as religion.
I don't believe in christanity or god nor am i an athiest. I'm close to being an huminist though i refer to myself as a taoist.
