It is always inspiring to hear peoples stories of losing faith. I have always seen it portrayed in movies and media as such a horrible thing, but most stories that I have heard from people that have actually experienced it are uplifting.

I am an antichrist (2 John 1:7-11)

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own – a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty.

Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotism.

 Albert Einstein (New York Times, April 19, 1955)

Another question for believers

Our planet is one of eight (nine for those who still count Pluto, I don’t), orbiting around our sun. Our sun is one of an estimated 200 to 400 billion in the Milky Way galaxy. Our galaxy is one of an estimated 170 billion or more within the observable universe. This creates the possibility a very large number of other planets out there. It seems likely that there is probably life on at least one of them, possibly intelligent life.

My question is this; how does the possibility of other intelligent life in the universe factor into your religious beliefs? Do you think that these other possible lifeforms would have the same mythologies as this planet, or is your faith specific to Earth? Do you think that Earth is all that there is?

So, you guys can stop using that “atheism is a religion” argument now.
(Okay, so you guys can get me on the technicality that they are supposed to be the same god, but still)
