Yea i also wonder why they are so many and each teach different stuff. If God exists the way it is described by belivers then it should be same for everyone with same quotes etc. Good thing we have free will and all that to not make us AI etc. and can choose.

Talking

I look at anything here as artificial like all made up words, schooling (or not world wide,) code, symbols, cultures or soundAttachment 14507more than likely natural frequency, evolution randomly trying in\and motion of matters are the only real thing to make true AI but we'll never know;;; unless someone wants to get back to us on the subject: Bach, Einstein, Plato, no, OK let us know......

Although basic religion is ok I do not believe in any type of God . all of thoe stories you read in any type of bible or what ever are just stories and allot of those stories were taken from tablets fro the Epic of Gigamesh.
if you look at logic non of those stories in the Bible or any other anchient texts or tablet woul be the same as the original because of all of the retranslations over thousands of years .
even now there are words in some languages that do not exist in other languages a exapmple of tis would be if say a Chinese person speaking Cantonese trys to comunicate with say a pure Navaho Native and they spent weeks trying yo comunicate with each other just using there pure native tongue most of what they are trying to say to each other would be lost because of cultural differencesnever mind the gramer difference.
now for someone that originally found tablets of a Dead languages they are pretty much guessing and asuming allot of things they are trying to read .

now all of that being said I am spitirtal and beleieve but do not understand alot of how the natural world works, for instance I can pretty much feel the life leaving an animal when they Die ater being shot . it is alot different whe nwatching ome hunters on a TV show unting but whe nyou actually are the hunter and kill the Animal you will feel the spirit of that animal leave.
to me that is real not some stories that have been translated over 1000s of years that have nothing to do with how wwe understand nd live today/

Some people need religion but when I see religion I see wars fighting people being persecuted woam being rapped and tortured because of religion body mutulation and greed look at everything around the pope golden statues Idolitry everywhere .
Most of it is a scame that is used to prey on people that need hope.

Ham believes that Genesis is literally true--that God created the Earth in six 24-hour days--and that the universe is about 6,000 years old.
LOL...LOL...and ROTFLMAO. It's no use arguing with such irrational people.
