    This is the thread that never ends,
    It just goes on and on my friends.
    Some people started replying to it, not knowing what it was,
    And they'll continue replying to it forever just because...

    I watched it about a year ago this month. I agree it focuses on the nuts from the otherside, but the theists have many arguments which we find nearly as absurd. We just choose to focus on the nuts because they are the only ones who harm the world. Moderates are fine.

    Because you can't prove god exists with any reasonable evidence whatsoever, I have absolutely no reason to believe he/she/it exists. The debate is enormously tiring and I don't engage in it; all I'll do is simply say the previous statement and move on.

    If they get pushy then I'll chew their head off.

    I just wish it would have shown moderate theists reactions to extremists as well, to show that there is diversity within religiously minded people, that would have gone a long way to make serious scholars think about taking it seriously, as it is it seems dishonest. I agree though, that religious extremism is scary and the public should be made aware that it is scary and destructive.

    Occam's Science -

    All powerful universe or all powerful more-complex than universe conscious being?

    Hmmmmmmm.

    I do think the universe is funny doe, only not fond of thought-terminating cliches.

    Do you find God a thought-terminating cliche?

    Do you think Occam's Razor is always right?

    ---

    My two cents on this thread which I'll admit I haven't really read all the way through: I'm some flavor of agnostic theist for no reason other than it seems the easiest answer to me. I believe in God as a kind of first creative principle but this has little to no bearing on the way I live life. I'll never be able to prove or disprove it and so I don't know if it's worth trying.

    I would very much like to believe in some kind of universal consciousness though, far more than God.

    Oh, I don't know about that. So much ink has been spilled over God.

    A thought-limiting cliche, perhaps.
