        And out right refusal to believe what other people say, would be a justified approach to not knowing. Because, for the most part, you can never tell when people are lying. lol

                    You alone control what you do. So, how are you not in control?

                    No one tries to control the world. There are plenty of people who are trying to dominate the world. But, controlling it? Nope. None.

              I would suppose. Theists were convinced by someone that something exists, beyond the sensory experience. It is not their fault their gullible, the blame should fall on whoever started and propagated it.

                Umm...let's not get ahead of ourselves. Theists were not convinced by someone else. It's that they never had gotten over the initial "shock and awe" of consciousness and reality. lol
                No one had to start it. It's a theory just like everything else. But that it, a theory. It cannot even considered a hypothesis because there's nothing to actually back it up. lol

                  It wasn't a theory. If someone is spreading a lie, chances are, they picked it up from another person.

                    Hey nonto, and what's a theory? A theory is a thought/idea in combination of other thoughts an ideas, leading to a conclusion.

                    If a person is unable to break the "shock and awe" of consciousness, then they are likely to believe anything from almost anyone. When you look at our bodies, the chemical make up, DNA, the Universe, the planet and then try to fathom how it could have come about? Aside from humankind already knows, then you would likely believe in a God or a Creator.

                    Einstein said he believe in a Higher Power and could prove a Higher power exists through physics, simply because of the complexity of physics. However, he denied that his Higher Power was described by any of the world's religions.

                At one time there was 5 times more Native American than Europeans. The Columbus came over and began Christianity, Columbus brought natives slavery, gold rush and piracy and great wars. There after the greatest human genocide that has ever happened in Human history. I and America natives often still think Christian often speck with two faces and fork tongue.

                It might be nice if you put your ego aside, which is usually your problem. The fact that you making the inference that I'm the one with low awareness is actually just your reflection. Good show.

              Hey John, you seem to be a bit confused. If the destination is destined, then no choice you make will change it. You would still arrive at your destination whether or not of the choices you make throughout your life. So, choice doesn't play a factor in your statement.

    Yes, Cags. That says it all. Some priests lie. Tsk, tsk, tsk!

    And Christianity is a rescue mission.

    If you're on a sinking ship, you can decide: Do I go for the rescue or go down with the ship?

    Some people are so convinced that the ship is safe and they find its familiarity and comforts so appealing that they cannot let go of it. But when the ship goes down, it's their decision to stay.

    Does it matter if someone goes down with the ship and didn't know it was sinking? Would they be just as dead either way? See? Your priest was lying. The Eskimo would've died whether he was told or not.

    Going down with the ship... that's Hell.

    God created "man" in His own image and likeness. And God is not Homo sapiens.

      That means Cagsil , me and and most people on earth will be sailing on a ship of fools to our death forever or an option where most will be torture for eternity, God knows.

      Where Christian will be overly comfortable and over obedience in heaven above , well above the mountain tops 30,000 foot , smiling down on our hell from being extremely happy,

      Send my love to Yahweh, and his insane plan because he will need most of love down here.

      Yes, Priests lie. It's the only way to perpetuate the hoax of a G/god. How else do you think it would be accomplished? It certainly isn't made of truth.
      Yeah I know. It rescues wealth and power from the simpletons who would give it to them.
      If you're on a sinking ship, the ship is going down regardless of what you do. If you sacrifice your life to save that of someone else so they don't go down with the ship but you do. Then and only then, do you truly understand love. Until then, you must learn to love yourself until you do.
      That depends.
      Only someone already dead would never know the ship was sinking. Otherwise, not possible. Consciousness would ensure a person would know.
      Yes, dead either way.
      You know you're not helping yourself here, right? Anything but life is hell. So get real.
      Yeah, I've heard the tale. It's not believable by and rhyme or reason.
