Is God Real?
Interesting perspective man. Just a quick question, this is a little off topic but i just want know what you think about. Do you think we will lead ourselves to self destruction?.....if we are not on that path already

Is God Real?
Hmm, Great input Obey. I am just curious mind, so if my question's seems to have a bais, please forgive it. It was not intended and in my mind i have no bais only curiosity. As for me, i havent seen much evidence for a God and in fact when i think about a God, i cant help it think of my beliefs as the same beliefs as i had in Santa or the boogie man. Only difference is that we have been primed and conditioned to hold the belief in God as the fabric holding together our identity. And without it people would go into anxiety. So i am just a curious mind that wants to explore the basis of the question

Is God Real?
Hi George :) Thanks for the comment, when i say God, i mean an omnipotent being that as religion puts it, takes care of our needs not our wants. And by real i mean visibly and tangibly real as a separate entity from your conscious. As in its not a creation of the mind and it consciously exists in space and time.

Is God Real?
I share the same view Daryl. A lot of our beliefs are a psychological manipulation that has come tattooed to our minds. I was a devout christian and then one day i thought about why i believed in God. And what evidence do i have. And whether i should rely on a book that was written by man? And at the end of it all, i came to the same conclusion.

I think its "real" because we choose to believe it is. And we choose to attribute it to be "God", a divine all powerful being that will take care and handle life's obstacles for us as long as we live our lives in his eyes.

Do right and wrong exist?
It exists in the human mind. The concept of whats wrong and whats right is a concept thats created. For example, in the "civilized" and "western culture", cannibalism is wrong and condemned, but to those cultures that practice it in brazil and wherever else in the world, its perfectly right and normal. To me it doesn't exist, to me everything that happens has the potential to be the right thing to happen depending on how you choose to perceive it.

How can we sustain infinite growth on a finite planet?
I agree, but to "quit the silly invalid happiness" by reasoning is just what i am referencing. That would be a tough hurdle to over come because the world is not unified enough, everyone does things for themselves, with the exception of a few that live to benefit society. Yea technological advances would be a big gamble and frankly after thinking about it, i would go that route either considering how far we have come with it.

How can we sustain infinite growth on a finite planet?
There is a lot to say about this topic and it can addressed from a number of different angles so i am just going to take the general route. The only way we will cope with this legitimately underrated problem is through technological advances. Changing human psyche is not a "number of years its going to take" but more of a "generation" thing. i like to think optimistically and that we will overcome this but sometimes i worry about whether we will adapt in time. Because to me, society today seems to be a "me" society.
