For every positive there is a negative, so if you do not believe in God, there would be no Devil. If there is no Devil, would this world be a better place?

Freedom is the key; and insanity is just another form of being different.
I love this answer so much, you have really hit the nail on the head.
Nice analogy, I can relate to the aspect of personal taste when it comes to one’s belief.
I agree that the whole Universe is alive with energy, what you perceive that energy to be is a personal choice. And yes, we create our own Heaven and Hell, but if God and Satan could just be friends…
"if God and Satan could just be friends…"- do you mean in the human mind where both exist? God as positive and Satan as negative are ideas, not absolutes.
Why should God be the positive and Satan be the Negative, cannot they just be different?
Does it matter if they exist in reality or just in the human mind, if they were friends they would be less to hate.
Ladydeonne, Alan Watts wrote "The Book" in the 70s which expresses a similar concept, expanded to be that the WHOLE IS God. We're all a manifestation. He's on the radio now, but I haven't listened to him for a long time. Must be in his 70s.
Our ancestors; across all walks of life who fought for freedom from tyranny; both religious and non-religious.
Thank you for the quantum-religious lesson, Not sure if I fully understand what you are getting at, but the meaning of the word ‘God’, God is indeed something, even if it be something without substance (physical), or equal to nothing.
Your welcome. I don't see religion in the picture until added by someone. I think that was at the point of "Devil" being introduced as history shares.
No being (normal or supreme) is beyond reproach.
A lot has changed since the birth of Christ, what was relevant then, is not necessarily relevant today.
This is definitely an interesting thought, because many spiritual principles teach the "yin/yang" you can't have one thing without its opposite and both are necessary for the whole.
I agree, there is no wrong and right, and religion has an effect on us all. It is irrelevant what faith you are, or if you are atheist, the word of God and religion has and always will be instrumental in the choice of each individual’s beliefs.
Eternity is a long time my friend. In the words of Aerosmith, life is a journey not a destination. I would like to think the same of the afterlife.
If God knew so much death, destruction & hatred would follow in his name, would Jesus have been bo
Absolutely, This is exactly why Jesus was sent to save all from the world we live in today. In Heaven there shall be no more death, destruction, hatred, only love and happiness.
