      A better question might be What's the difference between animals and non-believers.....

      but I agree with sandra rinck---on both...(animals are innocent)...

        Do animals and believers not follow a script?

          Animals follow their instincts,  if you wanna call that a script...
          Believers actually deny much of their "animalistic instincts" in order to follow Christ,  because we were created with a higher decision-making capability than animals.

            I meant that animals follow natures script. Believers follow the bibles script. We have the ability to individualize from the script, yet believers follow. This is where I am making the relation of believers and animals.

              What's your point?
              ....Believers follow, yes.  And it's because we know there's something (actually Someone!)  who's so much...MORE...than we are....

                lol What's my point? My point is that your 1 system belief is the same as an animal mind. No individual thought! lol

      i agree, animals are innocent and therefore, not accountable for their sometimes violent actions. instinct is part of the 'script' for all living things, but Man ignores his instinct through rationalization, sometimes to his detriment.

        Well said. And then believers get faith and throw rationalization and logic out the window.

          you can argue this point with God someday I am sure He will get a big kick out of your "logic". LOL

            I would enjoy a debate with your government God. Afterall, he created the individual mind right? If he wanted everyone to be robotic sheep, he should have created all with follower minds.

              debate and or argue with God? Ok if you say so.
              thinking themselves wise they became as fools...

                Not thinking at all, they became ignorant robots of a government belief system.

                Guess who's quote that is?

      The difference is human mind
      animal follow their instincts
      Believers their dreams.

    Everyone is a believer of something.
        Believers in a God try to follow directions as best as they know.
        If we are not going anyplace in particular,  any road will take us there. If we have a particular destination in mind we will need to follow a map.

      Not everyone is a believer of a grouped belief. Not everyone needs a map to get to their destination. A map sometimes defeats the purpose of a free ride.

    Well, as we are animals...just with conscious and higher intellect...and animals have their tradeoff of smell, strenght, speed.

    Anyhoo, animals, aside from us, behave in my opinion less barbaric, selfishly, and aren't so corrupt.smile Nonetheless, humanity is intriguing.

      Well said, we do have higher intellect and consciousness and the ability to individualize yet believers choose to live unconscious through faith and grouped belief.

    Believers act by faith and not by instincts.

    1. marinealways24 profile image60
      marinealways24posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Believers seeking faith for something to believe is an instinct. Why do you think there are so many grouped and set beliefs? Believers are dependent on something to believe.

    ..You also said "unconscious"....

    It's not uncoscious.
    It's a very conscious knowledge of God...

      It's an assumption of absolute belief wrapped around the believers emotions to govern them.

    Well now:

    I am an individual who thnks in logical terms and learns things from many different experiences which lead me to conclude the truth in a given matter. smile

      marinealways24posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      No truth is absolute. That may not be absolute.


      How are you an individual with a grouped belief?

      You said before that you are a prophet. Your name is "left hand of God" God is defined from the bible. The bible is a 1 belief system contradicting your individual mind.

        Nothing I have read and now believe from any book contradicts my individual anything at all. I prove things to myself first.
        Use logic to draw a conclusion.

        If I am working on my car I read the repair manual to learn.

        You still assume much about me and are trying to lump me into your belief so you can label it and move out.

        I have no label and am even rejected by people who say they are believers.

        Quit wasting time trying to convince me of something I am NOT !!

        I can think like an individual or like a group, it depends on the situation at hand and what is the best thing at the moment.

        In a fire~fight, group is good.
        Taking a piss, individual is good.

          If you believe in an individual belief, why did you jump on the believer train to assault me for my individual ideas that the bible is a simple conspiracy to group belief? I didn't see your individualism to ask questions of my idea. All I seen was a believer trained assault. Protect the faith. I must say, I am very impressed by what you wrote. Sounds like you have a strong individual mind that has no need of a grouped belief. I simply don't understand why you define God in your name. God is defined from a grouped belief. Not an individual belief.

    If you are speaking of humans and mammals, then yes, they are quite different.

    Mammals rarely feast on their own kind ... smile
