    I've read a few funny things in my days, that's for sure. I once read an
    article about how all we humans are supposedly made up of an energy
    merely changing form when we die, and how that energy makes us
    eternal in a sense. Nonsense! When we die, we die. So forget about
    keeping your memories or your emotional self. You need a physical
    form that's a little more advanced than mere energy to carry such things
    with you. When the harddrive, powerunit and processor is dead,
    you're dead! And, "in a sense", the energy is no longer the
    same once it's parted from our bodies. What can we learn from that?

    It stands to reason that nothing is really eternal. Not even this god thing
    everyone keeps jabbering about. Haven't anyone wondered why he's
    been gone since that day 2000 some years ago? I hate being the one to
    break the news, but the fact is that the romans beat the crap out of
    Jesus and his so called father did nothing. Jesus died and has been
    dead ever since (either that, or he's extremely shy). Mohammed is even
    easier to dispute as he was evidently a murderous pedophilic
    opportunist. There is nothing holy about such a person. And Buddha?
    What a load of distasteful crap! The guy sat by the water, starving
    himself half to death until, quite naturally he started hallucinating. I
    mean, come on! There is in fact nothing, not one single thing, not one
    shred of evidence to support the existence of anything godlike. So why
    keep talking about this eternal thing that created us all (and did so for
    no reason we can understand), or how we're all connected through some
    higher form of energy?

    BaH!

    Everything dies and everything changes. And it's a good thing too. I
    mean, just imagine if someone like Elvis Presley for instance, were
    actually eternal. I mean it's hard enough escaping his waste here on
    earth almost thirty years after his death (oh, the awful curse of recording
    technology). Just imagine finally dying, only to end up in a celestial
    dump and having to sense Elvis shaking his energy... for
    eternity
    !!! I shrudder at the mere thought. No, the absolute promise
    that everything eventually changes or dies gives me strength to carry on
    even in the hardest of times. I wouldn't have it any other way. So I
    shake my head at this god fantasy that some of you entertain and say
    this: If there is anything more to us than what we can see, hear, feel,
    taste and smell, I certainly don't want to know about it.

    Oh, shut up!

    And I though the thermodynamic law said that "nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything just transform"

    Hey, you, listen, this is the real world. Since the beginning there has been a spiritual battle going on. Maybe if you read more than you did, you will find more truth about things than the load of CRAP you wrote here. Some people have faith (clearly you dont). How can you lecture something you dont know anything about?

    Do you then have enough evidence to actually proof that God does not exist? Show it to me, SHOW IT TO THE WORLD!? Have you even ever started looking for God? People like you always say that Christians dont have any proof of God's existance, its pathetic actually, because I can see God in almost everything!

    Can you proof me wrong?

    Dude, the word you are looking for is "prove." I'm sure the other believers here would appreciate it if you didn't propagate the "Fundamentalist Christians can't write" stigma.

    Is it just me or is it counterproductive to start a thread about not talking about God so people can then talk about not talking about God?

    I'm not talking about G-O-D. I'm talking about this guy's writing (spelling) -- Thank you, Freaky -- problems. You're talking about how counterproductive this thread is. I'm talking about what we are talking about. See? Nobody's saying anything about . . . well . . . you know . . . the big fella in the clouds.

    And Buddha? What a load of distasteful crap! The guy sat by the water, starving himself half to death until, quite naturally he started hallucinating.

    The Buddha experienced his “awakening” after he quit all that silly starvation stuff.

    There is in fact nothing, not one single thing, not one shred of evidence to support the existence of anything godlike.

    Nor did the Buddha say there was.

    And, as Zen Master Lin'chi said: "If you meet the Buddha, kill the Buddha"--because what you think you're encountering is a projection.

    No, the absolute promise that everything eventually changes or dies gives me strength to carry on even in the hardest of times.

    In Buddhism, that’s called “transience,” and not clinging to what is transient.

    Please. This is just another idiotic excuse from non-Christian believers.

    The reason. Cause that is what people do when they dont have anything else to say, and start looking at other things instead...wouldn't you say it a little childish - mmmhh? 🙄

    Not surprisingly, during Halloween, the demand for Buddha costumes has severely fallen off, as well. Very few are willing to be taken as projections, it would appear.
