Notice how many gods you reject.

Proof #28 - Notice how many gods you reject

There are literally thousands of religions being practiced today. Here are 20 of the most popular, along with an estimate of the number of followers:

Christianity: 2.1 billion
Islam: 1.3 billion
Hinduism: 900 million
Chinese traditional religion: 394 million
Buddhism: 376 million
African Traditional & Diasporic: 100 million
Sikhism: 23 million
Juche: 19 million
Spiritism: 15 million
Judaism: 14 million
Baha'i: 7 million
Jainism: 4.2 million
Shinto: 4 million
Cao Dai: 4 million
Zoroastrianism: 2.6 million
Tenrikyo: 2 million
Neo-Paganism: 1 million
Unitarian-Universalism: 800 thousand
Rastafarianism: 600 thousand
Scientology: 500 thousand

[Source: Encyclopedia Britannica]

If you believe in God, you have chosen to reject Allah, Vishnu, Budda, Waheguru and all of the thousands of other gods that other people worship today. It is quite likely that you rejected these other gods without ever looking into their religions or reading their books. You simply absorbed the dominant faith in your home or in the society you grew up in.

In the same way, the followers of all these other religions have chosen to reject God. You think their gods are imaginary, and they think your God is imaginary.

In other words, each religious person on earth today arbitrarily rejects thousands of gods as imaginary, many of which he/she has never even heard of, and arbitrarily chooses to "believe" in one of them.

The following quote from Stephen F. Roberts sums up the situation very nicely:

Quote:
"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."

A rational person rejects all human gods equally, because all of them are equally imaginary.

How do we know that they are imaginary? Simply imagine that one of them is real.

If one of these thousands of gods were actually real, then his followers would be experiencing real, undeniable benefits. These benefits would be obvious to everyone. The followers of a true god would pray, and their prayers would be answered. The followers of a true god would therefore live longer, have fewer diseases, have lots more money, etc.

There would be thousands of statistical markers surrounding the followers of a true god.

Everyone would notice all of these benefits, and they would gravitate toward this true god. And thus, over the course of several centuries, everyone would be aligned on the one true god. All the other false gods would have fallen by the wayside long ago, and there would be only one religion under the one true god.

When we look at our world today, we see nothing like that. There are two billion Christians AND there are more than one billion Muslims, and their religions are mutually exclusive. There are thousands of other religions. When you analyze any of them, they all show a remarkable similarity -- there is zero evidence that any of these gods exist.

3) Morals and ethics are not dependent upon religion.
4) It's far from impossible, and it's necessary to a free society.

I think there is some confusion here based on my poor choice of words. I've been using religion as a catch all word to mean a belief in a creator, not an institution created by man, which is how i believe you are reading it. So to your points:

1) When I said 'specific' I was referring to an institutional belief system, not a moral code, which has its roots in a creator (I contend).
2)by 'us' I mean us as humans not us as Americans
3)agreed, but they don't just happen
4)for each religion, yes. Our system of laws is not entirely the result of evolution, however.

1) OK, I was just pointing out that the amendment was not intended only to discourage a specific state religion.
2) Our laws did evolve with us humans. We created them. If you choose to believe that divine inspiration moved men to create law then of course you are free to hold that belief.
3) Sure. I was teasing you with my RNA comment.
4) As long as we keep the authority of the Church away from the power of the State we have a chance.

What is it about separation or church and state that confuses you? Reword your beliefs, explain them all you wish. It does not change the fact this country was founded giving you the right to believe how you wish. However the government was not designed to endorse, condone or reject any belief. As in neutral~

I'm curious. How did men create law if not by some form of divine inspiration? At what point in our biological evolution did we diverge from all other animals in this regard?

I'm really not asking this to instigate anything, I just wonder what your view on it is.

I'm not a theocrat. I just recognize the role of divine inspiration ( thank you listopencil) in everything inherently human, including government.

And you would be wrong.

Yay for in the 12th year of the second millennia the reign of terror which had cast a shadow over the kingdom of Arrowhead for four years came to an end. The architect of destruction and tyranny became detached from the people and met his demise from his own doings of arrogance and ego. Along with his puppets, they were removed from power because of the bravery and determination which encompassed the uprising and rebellion of the people. Then upon season's end the table will be set and the savior will come forth through the established rituals of selection. He will lead the kingdom out of darkness and into the light and promise of success that comes from his abilities. And it will be good.

We didn't diverge from all animals in this. Here's and easy example. Your dog knows that it's not supposed to get into the trash can. You come home from work and your dog has knocked it over. Big mess in the kitchen. Look at your dog. Some dogs are stupid and will just look at back at you with a "Derp?" face. Otherwise you will see remorse, guilt and fear. The dog knows it has done something wrong. If you treat it in a certain way you can train it (most dogs) not to knock over the can anymore. In effect you instituted morals in your dog. He knows right from wrong and makes the decision not to "commit evil."

I could give you a lot of examples of moral/ethical behavior in animals but I have to go to bed. Work in the AM. I'll be back tomorrow.

Great example for GOD in there, a teaching moment for sure.

Two issues come to mind. 1) Supposing the dog knows he does wrong, that feeling is still taught to him by humans. Had it not been for training, that dog would have made a mess in the kitchen and gone about his day no matter how intelligent of a dog he is. 2) The dog knows he did wrong because of the reaction from the human and the poor consequences that follow. Human gets angry; dog gets put in kennel or outside or hit w/ newspaper or whatever standard dog training is; kennel/outside is not comfortable, human angry voice is disturbing, and hit w/ newspaper feels bad.

But a dog cannot tell you why it is bad to make the mess in the kitchen. He has no idea the values that are associated with whatever it is humans think bad, whether it be making a mess in the kitchen or eating the 2 mo old child.

God at the last minute told Abraham to sacrifice a goat instead. The Muslims believe that Abraham then went to Saudi Arabia with Ishmael where they remade the Kabah, the holiest artifact in Islam. Ishmael became first of the Arab race. The Jews believe Abraham went with Isaac to found the nation of Israel. Islam does not mention what happened to Isaac.

Despite the fact that they believe different things, they are all worshiping the same monotheistic God, whether he is called Jehovah, God or Allah.
I used to think the same thing. And historically, the sentiment rings true. This is what Peter says in Acts 3, when he references the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. And of course, the Christian and New Testament ties to the Hebrew Scriptures are innumerable.

However, theologically, it is not true. There are fundamental differences in the conception of this God that they cannot be the same. Jews, Muslims, and Christians cannot all be correct about the particularly important facets of God. Each religion sees their God through their prism, looking back to the Hebrew Scriptures and seeing their God. But looking forward and presently, they each worship a God that has important differences from the others' formation of God.

There's no contract. There's no official Catholic Member Directory where the Church claims people. The Catholic Church doesn't claim members, and unless you've registered through a parish, you don't officially count for much. It does claim, however, that your baptism was a nice little deal your parents gave you whether you realize it or not.
