|There Is No God? by Funke4Jesuss(f): 10:15am On Oct 08, 2014|
I've experienced lots of things in life that made me realize how brainwashed people can be.
And i kept thinking, what if all the things i've been made to believe are actually wrong?
The christains thinks they are the only one that is saved (whatever it means).
The muslim will say only islam is the true religion and every other persons are infidels and will be destroyed.
The atheists are strongly convinced that there is no God. And they also believe anybody that believes in a supernatural power has been brainwashed.
And one thing i also realize is that people's religious belief tends to be biased towards what their family's beliefs were. E.g if u are born into a christain home, u will generally think christainity is the only true belief. The same goes for muslims and atheists.
After seeing all this, i decided to find out which belief is true, without biases.
So, pls stay tuned to know what my discovery is.

RedBenson:RedBenson u again. Anyway, u have successfully kicked me out of the sexuality section. Rocktation banned me for 7 days.
|Re: There Is No God? by Funke4Jesuss(f): 11:14am On Oct 08, 2014|
In order to find out the real truth, i decided to be a freethinker. And as a christain from childhood, i stopped considering myself as a christain.
And i also thought, Is it even worth my time to find out if a God exists or not? Why can't i just live the way i want (as long as i don't harm others). What will i gain or lose if he exists or not?
To be continued...
|Re: There Is No God? by Nobody: 11:22am On Oct 08, 2014|
Punishment well deserved and served appropriately. U were only trolling in sexuality with no significant aim and such people deserve ban...as u just got it rightly. Lol.
|Re: There Is No God? by olojaoke1(m): 11:29am On Oct 08, 2014|
@ funke am all eyes "ears" @redbenson free the lady make we his "read" are out.
|Re: There Is No God? by Funke4Jesuss(f): 11:58am On Oct 08, 2014|
What will I Gain if a God exist?
- it gat me thinking about life. Okay, im very successful, rich, i have a great family, i'm very famous... And then i die. Then what have i achieved. I thought about people like Rockerfeller, Winston Churchill, Awolowo, Michael Jackson, Dora Akinyuli e.t.c. They are all dead. So, does it means after i die thats the end? Then whats now the meaning of everything. We just live, wake up in the morning, eat, go to work, come back home, eat and sleep. And the cycle continues the next day. Then i realize if there is a God, i will be able to live on even after i've died.
- Then again, i thought about all those evil people. People that murdered someone in my family and got away with it. All those people that steals our country's money and get away with it. All those people with power that i've wrongly oppressed me and i'm powerless to fight back, will they just go scot free? Then i realized it will be nice if there is a God that will punish these sorts of people.
- Again, what if i just find myself in an hopeless situation, won't it be nice if there is someone out there that is very powerful and can help me out?
So these are the advantages that would make me want to believe in a God.

Are you for real? So your prove of God's existence is because people grow? Growth hormone, anyone?

oluwalfa:How wuld u feel
|Re: There Is No God? by Funke4Jesuss(f): 12:33pm On Oct 08, 2014|
BodyKiss:lol. Trees, animals, insects e.t.c also grow. Does that mean they believe in God.
|Re: There Is No God? by davien(m): 12:46pm On Oct 08, 2014|
[b] funke4jesuss must the universe or reality obey what you want to be true or real.....? must there be a cosmic justice to the universe? If you were born....lived and died....should there be another life because you don't want to live a finite one?....
Does the universe owe you an explanation for your existence?
Those that have lived and died with the notions of an afterlife were they living good because of that belief or because they wanted to live a finite life the best moral way they can....?
If "god" is real why do many religions break up into denominations all based on the same texts and all claiming be the "one true religion"…
Is it a lie to keep re-assuring people of what you don't know and cannot tell to be true?
Is it immoral to base a way of life on texts that have prejudices and hate for the nature of human beings?
Why is it that these "gods" showed up in ages that didn't care about evidence and then left texts prone to mis-interpretation and interpolation...as the best evidence for today?
Why do these "doctrines of peace" contain gruesome acts of evil performed by these "gods"...
Why do religious people get infuriated when you are asking questions about contradictions about the being they worship?
In our daily life do we employ faith and pick any resolution to know the truth?.....then why is the "ultimate truth" needed to be believed by faith?

davien:Just read on now. Wait till i tell u what my discovery is b4 u criticise me.
|Re: There Is No God? by davien(m): 12:53pm On Oct 08, 2014|
Funke4Jesuss:oh heavens no...i'm not criticizing you.....merely asking questions for you to think up on....
|Re: There Is No God? by oluwalfa: 12:59pm On Oct 08, 2014|
Great. I guess.
|Re: There Is No God? by Funke4Jesuss(f): 1:02pm On Oct 08, 2014|
What will i lose if there is a God and i pretend he doesn't exists:
Well, only one thing comes to my mind - Hell.
As much as i like to believe there is no God, what if i die today and i realize my belief has been wrong. And infact, that God is angry with me for all my sins (including denying his existence) and then he orders me to hell 4 ever. Can i afford to spend 24 hours in a hot burning fire talkless of forever? Try putting your hand in a burning stove.
So, this made me to realize it is truely worth my time to find out if a God really exists.

|Re: There Is No God? by bossminded: 1:14pm On Oct 08, 2014|
No sir, you would!! I bet you would cry!!!
|Re: There Is No God? by Funke4Jesuss(f): 1:14pm On Oct 08, 2014|
What will i gain if there is no God?
The idea of No God seems great.
I could have s.ex with any hot guy i want without fear.
There are some really nice ways to make money (i'm not talking of prostitution), i could engage in such.
I'm a really talented entertainer/singer, i could become Tiwa Savage without fear of going to hell.
All these things and more would have been an advantage if there is no God.
|Re: There Is No God? by bossminded: 1:22pm On Oct 08, 2014|
Tiwa isn't going to hell... are u to judge?? madam fear God o
|Re: There Is No God? by Funke4Jesuss(f): 1:32pm On Oct 08, 2014|
bossminded:I never said she is going to hell now. I only said, i fear i might go to hell if i become like her.
|Re: There Is No God? by Funke4Jesuss(f): 1:42pm On Oct 08, 2014|
After deciding it's truely worth my time to find out if a God exists, it gat me asking this question - What is God? These are the answers i found:
1. (in Christianity and other
monotheistic religions) the
creator and ruler of the
universe and source of all
moral authority; the
2. (in certain other religions)
a superhuman being or spirit
worshipped as having
power over nature or
human fortunes; a deity.
These definitions have one thing in common - A God is a supernatural being that has power over nature. So, what is nature? Nature is:
1. the phenomena of the
physical world collectively,
including plants, animals, the
landscape, and other features
and products of the earth, as
opposed to humans or human creations.
2. the basic or inherent
features, character, or
qualities of something.
The next stage got me asking this question - Is there any realistic proof of a supernatural being (God / gods) influencing nature or having authority over nature?

[b] lol....funke4jesuss... first off an unbelief is not a pretence....just an unbelief...or is your unbelief in allah a pretence?
what i can get from your write up so far is....
1.Atheists have a "pretence" and believe an idea of "no god";
This as i've pointed out is silly....and an idea of "no god" isn't an idea....you can't have an idea that doesn't have a definition nor proof..... e.g can you have an idea of a married bachelor?
2."god" has to be real else we are all loose canons;
If this is true why aren't atheists the most people in jail or commit crimes.....despite the veil of dignity around religions they commit vastely more atrocities than unreligious people...
3."hell" has to exists else i could do whatever i want;
Really?....saying something has to exists because of moral reasons is also silly.....before my example note that despite this claim by many preachers and you....they still r4pe women and young children....aren't they doing anything they want?
Father christmas has to exists else people won't give presents....is what i can deduce to match you....
4.The consequences of the "god" claim makes it justify-able to believe;
So why don't you believe in all gods then?....they all have consequences....why are you comfortable playing a roulette of one christian denomination against 41,000 ones?...
Despite this no one has to believe you because you cannot on your own validate if it is true or not...
If i walk up to you and tell you a quarxynoff is an alien that is hidden in your brain and cannot tell you how i know its true but keep telling you to have faith....and that you need to have a neuro-parasite lodged in it to survive....would you believe me?
what if i hold out my hand and threaten to split an atom if i am not given 50 million naira?...would the consequence make the claim true? [/b]
AND ALL SUMMED UP IN......"I HAVE TO BE RIGHT ELSE I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN A WORLD THAT DOES NOT OBEY MY PRE-DRAWN CONCLUSION OF IT...
|Re: There Is No God? by Weah96: 1:51pm On Oct 08, 2014|
Then I will be provided with a genuine reason for all this hide and seek. The God will explain why he did everything in his power to remain hidden from me.
|Re: There Is No God? by Funke4Jesuss(f): 2:02pm On Oct 08, 2014|
@ davien i think my post is as unbiased as possible. These are the points in my posts:
1. First i asked myself why should i (not you or anybody else) bother if there is a God or not. Then i listed the advantages i will stand to benefit if a God exists. And the things i might suffer if he exists and i say he doesn't. After examining both, i realized its worth my time to find out if he truely exists or if its just an imagination of human minds.
2. The second stage is where i will prove (to myself) without biases if he exists or not.
If after reading my posts u still accuse me of wrong belief, then i will have to say u are more brainwashed than myself.
