“Aqui está um pouco de matemática para vocês
Deus é infinito, sim?
Nós somos uma fracção de Deus, não somos?
E uma fracção de infinidade é infinidade, não é?
Devemos ser todos deuses então.” – Anónimo
“There are two ways of responding to mystery. The scientist’s way is to see it as a challenge, something they’ve got to work on, we’re really going to try to crack it. But there are others who revel in mystery, who think we were not meant to understand. There’s something sacred about mystery that positively should not be tackled. Now, suppose science does have limits. What is the value in giving the label “religion” to those limits? If you simply want to define religion as the bits outside of what science can explain, then we’re not really arguing. We’re simply using a word, “God,” for that which science can’t explain. I don’t have a problem with that. I do have a problem with saying God is a supernatural, creative, intelligent being. It’s simple confusion to say science can’t explain certain things; therefore, we have to be religious. To equate that kind of religiousness with belief in a personal, intelligent being, that’s confusion. And it’s pernicious confusion.” – Anonónimo
“Cells have no will to live. They usually kill themselves after a while.
Organisms adapt because their reproduction process isn’t perfect. It isn’t perfect because those that can’t adapt die. They die for the same reasons rocks roll down hills.” – Anonónimo
“a. the big bang theory doesn’t say something came from nothing, it says something came from something else that was very small and incredibly dense, so you can take your divide by 0 analogy and shove it.
b. where are you getting that infinity does not exist by logic? Infinity as a concept exists, but infinity in nature does not – we just say the universe is virtually infinite because it is literally so big that to properly envision its entirety would be impossible.” – Anonónimo
“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise man as false, and by rulers as useful.” – Anonónimo
“There’s never been a verifiable supernatural event in the history of mankind.” – Anonónimo
“Empirical proof of the existence of God would not only render Faith obsolete, it would make it impossible to have. The point of Faith is Belief, not empirical knowledge. And if you Know, you cannot Believe.”- Anonónimo
“Actually, it is entirely possible for life to have been created through a series of biochemical reactions, admittedly extremely rare ones that require some very rare circumstances. The fact is though, that since the universe is virtually infinite, there are a virtually infinite number of chances for these reactions to occur, and we happen to be one of them. Therefore, it is also entirely possible that there is some form of other life somewhere else in the universe, but the chances of us ever making any sort of contact with them is pretty much 0%.” – Anonónimo
“For me, something would qualify as god if it were omniscient, omnibenevolent, and the creator. No omnipotence, thats an impossibility. Now, the way I see it, there are just too many bad things in this world that we see every day for me to believe that such a god exists. If it can create the universe, surely it has the power to at least make sure that there aren’t starving children, women being raped, etc. If it’s omniscient, it obviously knows that these things are going on, and omnibenelovence would compel it to intervene. Yet these things continue to happen, and as a result, any higher being does not fit my definition of god.”- Anonónimo
“If someone proved to me the christian god described in the bible existed, I still wouldn’t worship him. That character is one of the biggest assholes ever made up. For example he kills of 40 young boys for making fun of a bold guy. Fantastic role model you have there.”- Anonónimo
