    >If nothing matters why are you still scared of death?
    Because the meaninglessness of life only makes death that much more terrifying/hollow, moron. There's a reason people tend to gravitate towards religion in their last days and it has nothing to do with how "real" it is.

      People gravitate towards religion because it suddenly dawns on them that it's probably true. That God did create the universe, create and design our nature, that we were created to be gods and rulers of the universe with Him, but that we fell into sin because we loved it more. It dawning them there is no other alternative. The "I'm scared because it's all meaningless and hollow" makes no logical sense whatsoever.

              I can answer your question with another question: if God doesn't exist, how did we get here?

              I've actually been close to death in the hospital and so I know that's bullshit. Fear is the only reason I sought out a priest, just to cover my bases existentially speaking. I didn't actually believe what he was saying, but my anxiety forced me to sit through all of it.

              So it dawned on you that it could be true, so you were afraid. Thanks for proving my point.

                Have you honestly given my questions any serious thought at any point in your life? In my experience atheists move goal posts over and over, often contradicting themselves, when I explain Christian theology,, so I want to start with your beliefs first, get them in writing, and go from there. My "proof" will be easily discernable once we can first understand your beliefs, and what the alternative to a universe with not God would be. It has nothing to do with dragging down credibility. And if it is, isn't that what you're trying to do with mine?

                I don't have any religious beliefs. I don't have certainty that god "doesn't exist" because the concept of god is pretty much designed so that this certainty is impossible, but I see no compelling reason to think its real.

                And "I don't know" should be a way more acceptable answer for a variety of questions like this, and making shit up just to comfort your existential anxiety isn't a good solution to anything. It doesn't mean I haven't given it thought, it means that a lot of things on that kind of cosmic scale are literally unknowable at this point for us and we need to find a way to be OK with that.

If you think the concept is such that it's impossible to believe he "doesn't exist", yet at the same time you see no compelling reason to think it's real, it sounds like your answer is not "I don't know".

                I’m

                Who said anything about selfishness or selflessness? Not the anon you’re responding to by the way, but I’ve never thought of the whole “perfect” thing like that and it makes sense to me. A perfect being would have no wants. He wouldn’t think to create anything or do anything if he’s truly perfect. If you’re not getting this then you might be cognitively slow.

                and I just wanted to say that your logic is heavily flawed. I’ve been back and forth on the whole religion thing and this dumb thread helped me realize how lacking in arguments the religious side is. The concept of “I don’t know” is more powerful than your cope and deflection. You’re not proving anything to anyone and you don’t want to me convinced, obviously.

                If you were "perfect", which, by the way, is a concept beyond our understanding, would you sit around and do nothing? Or what you create infinitely, because you are infinite perfection?

                If it’s a concept beyond understanding then why do you continue to purport it? You just shot yourself in the foot. Don’t use a claim you don’t understand and then throw the lack of understanding back at your opponent. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. To answer your hypothetical question that we can both admit is pointless since no one understands it, I would not desire to do anything if I was already a perfect being. Perfect to me means complete. No wants or desires needed.

                Christians royally fricked up once they started labeling their god and savior as a perfect being. An imperfect and powerful universe creator is still amazing and worthy of worship and following, but they had to play their hands a little too much and throw in perfect and all-knowing. Nothing about that god screams perfect and all-knowing. Not his creations, not his actions, nothing. Now Christians are stuck defending their religion while still having to uphold those dumb labels that contradicts everything they say. The Greeks and Romans had the right idea.

                Sophistry is teaching what the public will already willingly accept, at least according to Plato. He likened it to a beast master who knew how to appease an animal, rub it's belly, make it turn over, and follow it's desires. I don't think I'm doing that right now.

                I'll define God in no uncertain terms, as I have been taught, and how I understand it, since you refuse to: He is the creator of the universe, and all things in it. Not just physically, but in their function, in their design, how they are able to interact with and incorporate with one another. He is also the creator of all concept and theory within the physical universe, of all abstract conceptions and understandings. He designed our nature, designed what is good, what is pure. He gave us reason and the faculty of intellect to discover Him through His creation. He created us to be rulers of the Universe with Him, but we fell into and chose sin since we loved it more. Through the existence of Jesus Christ, God gave us a way to re-unite our natures with His again, and to one day re-assume our rightful place as rulers of the universe with God, during the second coming.

                There, I have defined my definition and belief of what God is. That is how I define Him, and the cosmological story of our nature and existence. Now, I am waiting on your definition. Then we can have a mature, adult discussion about it. I am very much looking forward to your response, and the adult-minded conversation that will follow.

                For starters, you have to have a definition of something, or some idea of the concept, to disbelieve in it. So what you would say is "I understand your concept of God, but i don't believe in that". Fair enough, you don't have to. However, my initial question was:

                We are getting away from the point: If there is no intelligent design, what accounts for the principal functions in the universe that indicate intelligent design? Water boiling at the same temperature does indicate principal intelligent design in the universe. Because it happens repeatedly at the same temperature. but your answer is simply that you 'do not know', is that it? Which to me, sounds like it's all chaos and random, if God didn't create it, and make it so, since you refuse to believe in God. You say you 'do not know'. But if foundational principals, that are based in observable facts, happen repeatedly, and never change, if it is not God, what is it? You say "I don't know". But if it is not God, there must be an alternative. And the only alternative is random chaos and chance. There can be no other answer. And this is why I am saying you are disengenuous, and you have been from the beginning. If God doesn't exist, there is no basis for any principal in the universe except chaos. But the universe is not chaotic at all. It is actually extremely orderly and pattern based.

                eh pretty much all cultures were fine with war until the last few centuries or so, and a lot of the other stuff you list is fairly spotty as far as being "denounced" across civilizations. things we'd call rape now have been okay under certain circumstances across many civilizations. many societies utilized drug use and drunkenness as part of their religious tradition.

                things like unwarranted bodily harm, murder, etc are easy to agree on across civilizations because a society cannot exist if people are free to kill each other at will. none of this requires anything supernatural.

                Because I don't want to experience pain. Pain being impulses and stimuli sent from my nerve endings to my central nervous system which are interpreted by my brain. The purpose of said stimuli being to warn that the system is being damaged and with enough damage will cease to function. As I said, the self-preservational instinct inherent in all living things does not require any moral guidance to exist. It is simply the byproduct of a system that is designed to continue functioning, because evolutionarily, systems that are not designed to continue functioning tend to cease to function.

                Believing in evolution, which I believe is a myth, cannot even get going without accepting a good deal from the real sciences. And the real sciences cannot be accepted for a moment unless rational inferences are valid: for every science claims to be a series of inferences from observed facts. It is only by such inferences that you can reach your nebulae and protoplasm and dinosaurs and sub-men and cave-men at all. Unless you start by believing that reality in the remotest space and the remotest time rigidly obeys the laws of logic, you can have no ground for believing in any astronomy, any biology, any paleontology, any archeology. To reach the positions held by the real scientists--which are taken over by the myth--you must, in fact, treat reason as an absolute. But at the same time the myth of evolution asks me to believe that reason is simply the unforeseen and unintended by-product of a mindless process at one stage of its endless and aimless becoming. The content of the Myth thus knocks from under me the only ground on which I could possibly believe the Myth to be true. If my own mind is a product of the irrational--if what seem my clearest reasonings are only the way in which a creature conditioned as I am is bound to feel--how shall I trust my mind when it tells me about Evolution? You say in effect ‘I will prove that what you call a proof is only the result of mental habits which result from heredity which results from biochemistry which results from physics’. But this is the same as saying: ‘I will prove that proofs are irrational’: more succinctly, ‘I will prove that there are no proofs’.

                Yes, my assessment of the world and the way it works is based on my subjective prejudice. So is yours. The only difference is that I do not assert that my view of the world is universal, and you do. Rather I assert that worldviews are individual. The fact that we have such differences in this regard can serve adequately as proof of this. The difference between science and religion is that science believes all of its conclusions are theoretical and subject to change, and religion believes that its conclusions are divine, immutable and absolute. While you Christians are correct to criticize science for at times becoming dogmatic, the difference is that science is only dogmatic when it is being misused or misapplied. Of course science can be corrupted. Anything can. But religion is dogmatic by design. It is corrupt by nature.

                >Yes, my assessment of the world and the way it works is based on my subjective prejudice
                Well what I highlighted is not that you belief in evolution is a subjective prejudice, but that it is purely illogical. Whatever the real universe turns out to be, it cannot be based in evolution. Religion on the other hand is based on faith in the bearers of the revelation, and for Christians that would be the Prophets, Christ, the Apostles, and the early fathers of the Church. At the same time, the Christian faith is highly logical and coherent. The problem is most Atheists have never studied Christian theology seriously. I would respect an atheist more if he read the church fathers, the ISV Gospels, had a firm grasp and understanding of it, and then said "I don't believe in that". But none of them do. At least I have yet to meet an atheist who has.

                I would argue the exact opposite, actually. The number one way that Christians become lapsed is by reading the bible. This is because the more deeply you delve into it, the more inconsistent, illogical and antiquated it becomes. Evolution operates by the opposite principle, the more thoroughly it is investigated the more credible it becomes. I would argue what you criticize Atheists for is also true with Christians and evolution, they reject it in part because they do not understand it. In fact it behooves them not to. I would also argue evolution is self-evident in nature and the way nature operates whereas the Christian faith is predicated on supposing a layer of reality that is elevated and exempt from the guiding principles of nature and the laws of physics, and that it does so without a shred of evidence of any kind.

                I'd love to keep discussing with you but unfortunately I have to go, schedules being what they are. But I would like to say that I've enjoyed our discussion and I appreciate your civility. You largely avoid hostility and confrontation, instead preferring to ask questions and discuss ideas. I respect and appreciate that and it is unfortunately rather rare in this day and age, particularly on this board. Best of luck to you.

                Evolution is so self-evidently true and predictive that you lose a lot of credibility by denying it, to be honest. It's something very observable on a micro level, and even on a macro level with things like bacteria. There's a reason lots of religions have bent their doctrine to allow for it.

                We need to distinguish between evolution as a science, and evolution in the mythopoetic popular mind.

                In the science, Evolution is a theory about changes: in the Myth, it is a fact about improvements. Thus a real scientist like Professor J.B.S. Haldane is at pains to point out that popular ideas of Evolution lay a wholly unjustified emphasis on those changes which have rendered creatures (by human standards) ‘better’ or more interesting. He adds, ‘We are therefore inclined to regard progress as the rule in evolution. Actually it is the exception, and for every case of it there are ten of degeneration.’ ("Darwinism Today, Possible Worlds, p.28.) But the Myth simply expurgates the ten cases of degeneration. In the popular mind the word ‘Evolution’ conjures up a picture of things moving ‘onward and upwards’, and of nothing else whatsoever. And it might have been predicted that it would do so. Already, before science had spoken, the mythical imagination knew the kind of ‘Evolution’ it wanted. It wanted the Keatsian and Wagnerian kind: the gods superseding the Titans, and the young, joyous, careless, amorous Siegfried superseding the care-worn, anxious, treaty-entangled Wotan. If science offers any instances to satisfy that demand, they will be eagerly accepted. If it offers any instances that frustrate it, they will simply be ignored.

                Biological evolution is genetic mutation + selective pressures. Good mutations get rewarded. Bad mutations get consumed. It's not a perfect system but like generative AI, it produces surprising results.

                Indeed there is no such thing as a perfect system. Another reason why religious belief is fundamentally illogical. It presents itself as a perfect system and yet it rapidly becomes a comedy of errors and inconsistencies when it is scrutinized.

          That's pretty clear, since you don't understand that you have to be ever vigilant against sin and your own flaws as a person. The idea that you get into Heaven just because you believe you're getting into Heaven is bullshit spouted by false prophets. You can't just ask for forgiveness, you have to repent. There are many "Christians" out there that haven't cracked open a Bible and "know" that they're going to Heaven. That essentially demonstrates they're already lost, because they're denying responsibility for themselves.

              What is and is not "correct" is purely subjective anyway.

                Well see that's one of the problems: A lot of Christians don't know the scripture in the first place, only what they've been told about it. Another significant problem is that the scriptures have been translated and transliterated many times, often losing euphemisms and cultural references/symbolisms in the process.
                >either you are refusing to understand or you cant understand
                Right back at you.

                You do not follow every word of the bible to the letter. You interpret, or you trust the interpretation of your priest. You take what you agree with and reject the things that you find to be antiquated, unapplicable or even immoral. What are you using to make those determinations? Reason. You and I do the same thing, you simply use your text of choice as an intermediary and I do not.

                I don't go to Church. I've been to many, but I've never found one that's not plagued a gaggle of clucking hens and wieners.

                I've made my point pretty clear: Assuming that you're guaranteed entry into Heaven is something that people who haven't read the Bible do. You are not guaranteed a spot just because you want one. It's not an RSVP, it is a constant battle with the world.

                You do not follow every word of the bible to the letter. You interpret, or you trust the interpretation of your priest. You take what you agree with and reject the things that you find to be antiquated, unapplicable or even immoral. What are you using to make those determinations? Reason. You and I do the same thing, you simply use your text of choice as an intermediary and I do not.

          Beyond the whims of the subject, does it matter whether someone is a coward or is brave in the face of a materialist reality? What has your bravery won you? What will it have won you when you die?

          >all cultures...denounce rape, murder, war, stealing, adultry, drunkeness, drug use
          eh pretty much all cultures were fine with war until the last few centuries or so, and a lot of the other stuff you list is fairly spotty as far as being "denounced" across civilizations. things we'd call rape now have been okay under certain circumstances across many civilizations. many societies utilized drug use and drunkenness as part of their religious tradition.

          things like unwarranted bodily harm, murder, etc are easy to agree on across civilizations because a society cannot exist if people are free to kill each other at will. none of this requires anything supernatural.

          >things like unwarranted bodily harm, murder, etc are easy to agree on across civilizations because a society cannot exist if people are free to kill each other at will. none of this requires anything supernatural.
          The supernatural is not necessary for a society to agree upon a set of rules that allow it to function, there is advantage and utility in that. But I don't see that as a true ought to guide an individual's behavior, the smooth functioning society seems to merely be something I can take advantage of when it's convenient and I can ignore the rules when I can seek out whatever advantage I will. Assuming I'm cunning or resourceful enough to skirt the rules of course. I otherwise owe no one or no God anything.

          What I believe people are really arguing about is what should be the be all end all metaphysical principle to govern mankinds' behavior, which of course doesn't need to be supernatural. I do find it hard to apply a universal principle without the supernatural, and for that reason I appreciate atheists like Nietzsche or Max Stirner who can provide the universal principle of "do as thou wilt", which of course can be great good or evil, or mere comfortable mediocrity and they appreciate how there's no real value to any of those options (even if Nietzsche prefers the great evil).

        Yeah it just doesn't sound plausible. It's highly anthropocentric. That strikes me as too convenient. We happen to have awareness, AND it just so happens that the God of the cosmos looks like us, has our values, and loves us and wants us to be happy? Why, except humans find it impossible to put anything above themselves? Why are so many deities in religion humanistic? The pagan gods were flesh and blood like us.
        I don't know how anyone can look at a modern religion, usually built on the rubble of a previous faith, and conclude it is correct.
        The only argument that has any grounding for me is the Prime Mover. But I would never assume what that Prime Mover was, or if it had an intelligence or a will behind it. I am willing to admit that something probably started the universe. That's all I am willing to admit. I cannot ascribe values to that thing. And since that Prime Mover existed before time and space, I must conclude it requires neither time nor space to exist, so looking for evidence of it there is pointless.

          Marx was half right about religion. It does make people feel good; it also keeps them in line. All the secular societies of history have been massive, spectacular failures.

              Your comment is superfluous and out of context. It's even weirder than you can see the problem but insist that secularism is not the cause. Secular communistic societies were humanitarian disasters, because they believed a single life was essentially worthless.

              We need a new religion, one that is not based on supernatural nonsense. A humanistic, merciful religion. The teaching of Jesus are good ones, but Christianity is the bloodiest religion in history, mostly because of the organized Church built around his mythology. A religion for the new man could not be based on a prophet. It becomes a cult of personality, and then that superior figurehead is wielded as justification for horrendous things.
              It would have to be based on objective, observable reality. But it could not be purely empirical. Empiricism is the realm of science, and even science was perverted by the I Fricking Love Science crowd. It must be grounded in humility and love, as Jesus taught.
              Jesus without the supernatural baggage. This is what Thomas Jefferson thought was the ideal.

    There are 8 billion people alive right now, and you are one of them. There have existed in total around 117 billion Humans now and in the past.

For your life to have "no meaning" would mean that you were just lucky enough to be one of the random 0.00(repeating)1% of living matter to be born as a Human (the most advanced and most significant species in the known universe), instead of being born as one of the quintillions of other irrelevant forms of life which truly have no meaning.

            Would God's Omniscience not invalidate those examples? He is experiencing all that we experience right now, and He has already experience it, and He has yet to experience it. He is past, present, and future, with no actual concept of time. So when He became the First Mover by setting the events of our Universe into motion, it would not be contradictory for him to move things after that? He can open the dam and let the river out, then choose to insert a hand into any part of the stream to alter it.

                Maybe, but that's irrelevant, because we're talking about God here, and God does not exist in a linear time or place. If my grandmother had wheels, she would have been a bike.

                nta, but things in the physical world do exist in time and space, and therefor they do rely on a chain and sequence of reasonings. God, being a spirit beyond our finite understanding, exists outside of that.

    Here's the truth: Nothing really matters unless it matters to you. The beauty of that is that you have a certain freedom to choose from which things matter to you and which don't.
    Also, stoicism is a meme. Its most prominent figure literally had slaves tending to his every need, of course he could rightly claim "lmao why are you trying to change things you can't control? I gave that up and I am perfectly fine. Also, more wine Slavius! If you don't move, you'll get to meet the lions face to face in the next circus and you bet that's something I CAN control."

    I was an atheist from my 12 years of age trough my 16 years of age. Since I always liked history, after researching about ancient cultures, I realized that it would be too much of a coincidence for everyone to be telling the same story. Once you study enough, you realize existence is much more.

    Atheism, nihilism and views based on relativity are for youth who didn't experience life yet or menchildren. When I was 16 I was very nihilistic, didn't believe in god and was generally a contrarian. Since I turned 20 with every year I am more and more sure that objective truth exists, decadence is real and absence of religion is bad regardless if you believe god exists or not. I also was pro-lgbt and all that shit until I actually started to hang around with the leftie progressive crowd and realized they actually are like right-wing caricatures - just a bunch of lowlife scumbags with sexual deviations and mental health problems.

                English is my second language so I probably just write things too poor for people to understand. My position is that religion is not just a "divine punishment fearmongering" tool, it's something that unites people, shapes culture and customs and creates traditions. It has very important aspect to it that helps people coexist with each other and you don't need to actually believe there's a guy on a cloud in the sky in order to follow religion as an institution.

                So you aren’t religious yet believe in objective morality? Based on what?

                I think that killing innocents is bad because it causes suffering. I think suffering is objectively bad thing and happiness and wellbeing are objectively good things. But if you want to start this "morality can only exist with god" conversation I am ok with you saying morality can only exist with god.

                Morality is inherently subjective. Go to one country and they might have beliefs and practices that are inherently wrong or cruel in another country. Right and wrong aren’t objective.
                The concept of objective morality claims that the things that are right are always and forever, without question, universally right with no room for nuance. The same for the things that are wrong. Objective morality is only defensible from an angle of a higher power. Something beyond us has to say “this is wrong and this is right”, because anyone within us making that claim won’t have a leg to stand on.
                With that said, not even the Bible is consistent with its morality so god also seems to suck at being objective.

                People can be good out of the kindness of their hearts. I treat people with decency and respect because I want them to like me, not because of God.

                I’m not arguing against that. I have my morals on what’s right and wrong and I like to live my life in that way. But I don’t believe that my morals are universal or ever will be. And I don’t believe that someone that has different morals are worse or amoral.

                I think a lot of things can be objective when we look at them from the position of causing harm and suffering or causing happiness and wellbeing. Can you justify killing innocent? With the limitation that it has to be possible in real life, so no "a million people gonna be forever tortured if we won't kill this newborn baby". In a world of hypotheticals and "thought experiments" it sound very cool that morality is subjective, but in real world I think a lot of things can be universally agreed upon to be immoral and I think there's an objective truth in real life. The same way how in mathematics you can always put another 0 to the right of a decimal point on length but you can't do this irl

                Morality is written on our hearts because we are made in the image of God, but God also directs us with His laws in order for us to not be deceived by ruinous powers. To sin is to divorce ourself from Him, thus opening ourselves up to corruption, deception, etc. He is absolute Truth and has given us all the tools to deal with moral questions.

                I think in the world we live in there’s zero chance of objective morality. It’s ironic you talk about hypotheticals, because that’s the only way your objective views would work. Here’s the thing: almost everyone agrees that murder is wrong, yet almost everyone disagrees on what constitutes as “murder”. We also will disagree on what constitutes as an “innocent”. I don’t know if I’ll make sense to you and I don’t plan on continuing this conversation since I need to go back to work, but really think about the applications of your morality and think of how it differs with people that you know. Think of something like rape, or anything else that you deem horrible. Do we all agree on what constitutes as rape? Are there arguments every day on what that means?
                If killing innocents is wrong, why does it happen? Is it sometimes necessary or never necessary? And how do you prove your views as the moral and correct one without a higher power? How do you live your life and what do you do that others might consider wrong? Why do you do it?
                I’m not arguing for morality being needed or not. I think everyone should have their own morals. I’m arguing that we don’t live in a world with objective morality and we never will.

                No, we generally don't disagree on what is considered innocent in society. Only a few edgy morons do that, usually just to be a contrarians.

                Suffering and happiness are not as subjective as people like you want to make them because, again, real world is not a hypothetical and most of our behavior, likes and dislikes are linked to us biologically. Hungry and cold = bad. Warm and full = good. Considering clear deviations and mentally ill cases where person takes pleasure in suffering like wanting to remain hungry is very stupid argument and logical fallacy.

      This thread is a bunch of cope. No atheist is interested in defining God as they understand Him. Which is ironic to me: If you have such strong feelings the concept of God doesn't exist, you should be able to define that concept as you understand it, and in no uncertain terms. I think really gets it right, that those who are atheist are simply manchildren or who haven't experienced what the world is like yet. We are one hundred replies in and no atheist has given a concrete definition of the "God" they don't believe in. How am I to believe it is anything other than man children who want to escape responsibility for their own actions, and shortcomings in vice? I am almost certain no atheist here can give a serious definition of the God. No Christian has had an issue defining God. I will happily be proven wrong.

        Read Diododus Siculus. Read Xenophon. Read Eskilus. Read Sophocles. Read Tacitus.

        Actual historians, not a fricking magic in it, unlike the bible and trumpets bringing down walls.

            a moral system based in rationality, empathy and the desire to make the world better is a lot more difficult due to the absence of any moral absolutes, sure, and it takes a lot of work. I find it to be a lot more sincere than people who are trying to avoid doing bad things just out of fear of supernatural punishment, though.

              Rationality doesn't exist without God. See the Critique or Pure Reason and the transcendental argument for God.

                God is the antithesis of reason. Belief in the supernatural is belief in something that violates every natural law. Which means natural laws are not absolute, they are purely contextual. Same goes for morality. God is wrathful. He is prideful. He declares himself exempt from his own moral code. I don't look to him for moral guidance. I look to reason.

                Then you should be very careful, because ethics are premised on logic. Logic only has to be structurally valid. It does not have to be correct.

                Jesus Christ is the Logos and you can not have transcendentals like reason or math without God. It's actually unreasonable to use logic to justify your claims because you end up conforming to circular reasoning by using logic to prove logic. You say God is the antithesis of reason yet you haven't even observed the presuppositions of your own worldview, which is unreasonable.

                Nta, he is incorrect. Applying human values to God is unreasonable. A prime mover is quite reasonable. The Big Bang looks like a creation event to me. All of existence sprang from nothing.
                Human values are informed by our biology, as upright primates living on the surface of a planet. Presuming the Creator shares those values, when He is necessarily a completely different sort of creature, is ridiculous.
                Indeed the Prime Mover probably isn't an entity. Language fails to capture the essence of a will without physical form.

      I'm not so sure of that. I think the idea of simply ceasing to exist would be pretty comforting as compared to being judged for everything you've ever done, everything you're doing, and everything you will ever do. Any Christian that's 100% convinced they're going to Heaven is probably more likely to go to Hell.

      I heard a neat little theory from some early fathers who basically reasoned that the modern races/ethnicities who are more blessed are the ones who contributed the least to the construction of the tower of babel. In other words Black folk worked the hardest (lol) to rebel against God and got punished for it more than everyone else. It's not dogma but it's funny to think how these sorts of opinions were held by people in the early church

    It is impossible to prove that a god or gods do or do not exist, therefore, I don't really care that much.
    Though I will resist if anyone tries to push their beliefs on me. That goes for all muslims, israelites, christoids, trannoids, niggoids, etc.

      it's philosophically impossible to prove definitely that anything exists or doesn't. You can¡t prove that Pokemon don't exist somewhere on Earth.

      It's just that, well, a grown person beliveing that Pikachu is somewhere around is pretty sad.
