People need more mental exercises like this, keep on posting about such thing.
Every story has a little seed of truth . Though we all know that us,humans obviously turn that seed grow into an elephant. I watched the video bellow,its very right,people love stories,stories are influential .Do we know exact facts about "God"? No. We know stories,we love stories,we learn from stories and are influenced by them,we are told these stories since we're kids . For example superstitious people ,are told "the superstitious " stories since they are children ,their subconscious is influenced by these stories,so afterwards they remain with that belief. I was born and taught Christian religion ,at the age of 15,16 i started questioning myself more, and looking more into scientific matters,and i started being more "realistic".
Good and bad, are two needed stories. Its as well about the mental state, rationality,people still know what s good and bad ,and yet they do bad things .
Now we know life can be difficult,humans need something to rely on mentally and keep hope. Telling someone he's gonna die ,be buried and its his end of existance without going to "heaven" and that s the story ,well he wont like the story,what will he hold on onto anymore ?no more hopes for after death,as he knows he s gonna end one day,he will become scared "to death".We say "we have one life,live it up" , because we do have one life. So he does need "God story" to rely on,and try and stay rational , and feel he has "the shoulder " to cry on , and to forgive his bads and "lead" him on a better path ( but actually he is the one who is forgiving himself ,and leading himself thru a rational way to a better path".
Human mind is such a powerful things,it leaves me breathless at times.
We know that once upon a time,humans weren't "very " intelectual ,as we ll be probably compared by the human that will be here (if earth will still exist) as being lower in IQ .There might have been ,once upon that time, an intellectual individual ,compared to most of the humans by then which created this seed of story,because of several reasons that he had,trying to be rational or just he had a great imagination n he just tried to be foolish.
There aren't really any facts to contradict the existance of "God",but no facts to show "Gods" exists.
"God" is one,but religion is becoming scary to me nowadays . There are people who are "obsessive" about religion, they miss out their real lives and families to spend a great amount in church , obsessing their kids with this matter,or being so restrictive about doing things .
I have nothing to do against people to believe in "God" ,i actually happy for them,that it helps them in life matters. But i wanna know and live the truth, and learn about our beautiful Universe, and the possibility of existance of the other alien entities instead of Going to the church and praying to some walls,letting the time pass by and waste with a "prayer" than get more knowledge and die knowing the world we lived in.
People ,unfortunately , are and have to be sometimes blinded by our plastic world,to survive,but to TRULY live ,Even if God existed , humans shouldn t be so obsessive about it,they are on earth ,Universe,its a magic place,learn about the world you live in,the real world. And even if there was a heaven, why do people look so much forward to it ? They should look around,and leave away their artificial worries and look at the real world,not the plastic world that has been created,and if u truly see thru ur eyes and feels how it is, you will not look forward to "heaven".
Im not saying that i am right being agnostic as in religion , i am yet at an young age,and have still so much more to learn,and if i learn one day thru facts and proofs that god exists,i will receive it with my open arms because its a beautiful story,but until then i will appreciate Universe.
