of course there is no god. all of the world's miserable, shit, disgusting religions are more than enough proof of that.

Terje is my Jeebus tho.

the title has nothing to do with the movie itself...What God has to do with snowboard, or religion or whatever....? He is..and nothing more.

It is a figure of speech.

This is part of an excellent video series on the concept of god. This was done by someone who started at one end of the religious spectrum and laid a pain-stackingly detailed justification for his movement to the other end, over a period of years. The thing I love about it is that it is done with such intellectual integrity.

If you already have your heels dug in and your mind made up, then there is no point in looking at the foundation of your beliefs (this is all to common in humanity), but if you would welcome new information and insights to help improve the footing in which your world view is based on, then it is definitely worth a look.

apologies for off-topic drift. Terje is one who I have always admired: from his riding style to his Olympic boycott.

Depends on how you want to live your life and what basis you require in order to actually believe something: is it based of fear, evidence, guilt, morality, what you were told as a child, etc...

But seriously, if you are willing, check out the entire video series from this person, it addresses all sorts of questions that many may not even realize that they have. Start from the beginning if/when you have time.

Pascal's Wager. google it. more bullshit.

how do you know your book is the right one? what about the other 80% of humanity? damned to an eternity of hell by a system your God set up knowingly, fully recognizing that the majority of his 'creation' will suffer an eternity of torment?

I can unequivocally say that there is absolutely zero evidence that any of the world's 'holy books' are true, and I can also say that there is absolutely zero evidence of a creator, or ANY god. so i can easily say that there is no god based on any religion on earth that has any proof of existence. if there was evidence i would examine it and be open to new ideas.

are you open to the idea that there may be no god? have you ever really critically examined it? have you ever read your own holy book?
