But I`m not going to be happy jsut becauase a few people out of the billions of this world truly knows the meaning of, humanity.
A few does not compensate the rest, sorry.

To err is human, to forgive is divine. You should try it sometime. It lightens the burden of a heavy soul. Sorry, is living your life without forgiveness, and happiness comes from within, not without. Good luck with that hatred.

I`ve tried it all my life, I only get worse and worse response from people.
What I`ve learned is that, most, do not know what it means to be a good person.
Human to me is being different, not natural.
Waging wars and all that crap is still a primitive act.

Which is precisely what 99 percent of religions are trying to teach people how to do. Be "different" not "natural" in the sense that one should rise above their animal natures and base emotional responses. Forgiveness, compassion, charity, the exact opposite of selfishness and self-centered behaviors and attitudes.

This is the intention of religion, even if mankind has destroyed any notion of its original meaning.

I dont need religion to tell me what it means to be different and never have to.
And religions do preach that, but at the same time they preach to live like slaves so they have double standards.

Of course everything wrong with everything today is because of most humans.

Dark-Samus do you believe there is an architect to this reality we live in and interact with.

Well, you are right about one thing. Most do not know what it means to be a good person, but not all, and that is the most important thing. Peter asked Jesus how many times he should forgive someone and he offered seven times. Jesus responded with seventy times seven. He wasn't offering a specific number, rather, just keep on forgiving. It doesn't make you weak, it makes you a better person. Have you ever seen that commercial (I think it is for insurance) where people are doing nice things for others, and in the background there are other people watching? There is a lot of truth to that. For every worse response you have received, there is a possibility that someone somewhere took notice even though you may not be aware of it.

Where I disagree with you is, being human is natural, being different is not. Wars and greed and hate come natural to human beings. However there is an answer for that and it isn't religion. The answer is Jesus Christ.

DS,

Stephen Hawking estimates that immediately after the "big bang" if the rate of our universe's expansion had been slower by 1 part in a hundred thousand million million, the universe would instead have collapsed into a fireball. He also estimates that if the strength of gravity were lessened by just 1 in 10 followed by 100 zeros, the universe would not be life permitting. There are said to be over 50 such scientific estimates that, when all added together make it quite clear that this universe "fine tuned" to an unimaginable degree. So my question is, do you personally believe that there is an architect, some kind of intelligence, that designed this universe? I'm not asking if you believe in the biblical God.

Hi frostedman,

Well first of all I do not believe in God or any God.

Second if I ever did believe that there once were or still are some kind of God, I sincerely doubt that this God/Gods are as described in all religions.
I would think it´s an entirely different thing that humans at that time could not comprehend.
Just remember when the whites first came to american and interacted with the Indians.
The Indians thought they were Gods.

Third, I know Stephen Hawking is a very intelligent man, however even with all that knowledge it´s still theories and I don´t think he has gotten all the facts he still needs.
And just because they are mapping the universe and it looks pretty and all that, it does not mean it has been made by something intelligent.

Perhaps Jesus is one way.
I have taken another one that does not involve any conenction to religions or UFO:s whatsoever.

Ok but do you think there is a good chance this universe was created. Forget about God, or any gods, for the moment. And the Stephen Hawking reference was just a tiny portion of the so-called fifty plus examples of scientific belief. Basically science will tell you that if this universe were even slightly different, life would be prohibited rather than supported.
