False beliefs are not knowledge, even if the individual believes them to be true; a sincere believer in the flat earth theory does not know that the Earth is flat. Unknown facts are not knowledge, because they are not known by any individual; it is the belief element in a true belief that makes the link between a state of affairs and an individual. Unjustified true beliefs are lucky guesses, and therefore not knowledge.

Thanks to Wiki:thumbsup:

Atheists never pray either your numbers up or it isn't ;-)

So im with you fox, they wouldnt pray?

hi all im an atheist, i think thats the right one for having no religeon am i right???

althougth i do still have christmas does that make me a bit of a hypocrite (oops yes it probably does) but i dont celebrate anything religeous about it not one bit

i sometimes wish i did believe as some people find such strength in having religeon ie when a loved one is critically ill or someone close has died

i for one also say FOR GODS SAKE even thou i dont believe weird aint it

I agree with that.
There is nobody to 'pray' to.

The problem is you can pray to who you want, if they don't turn up who's going to be disappointed http://www3.b92.net/ipb_images/style_emoticons/default/huh.gif

That's no different to praying to some god. They won't turn up either.

Yes thats right, my mum found great strength through her faith and to be honest i think its the only thing that kept her sane in her life. ( believe me the things my mum went through im surprised she hasnt cracked up)

When things go wrong she finds comfort in praying and i think you do whatever it takes to help you through tough times.

She is my pillar of strength and amazes me she really does.

Does it really matter who anyone prays to, we are all entitled to pray to who we want, i know for one that there has been times in my life i have prayed, i dont know who too, but i sure have prayed for help

Don't get me wrong, if you want to believe it's your choice. However religion is a load of rubbish, but that is my personal opinion.

I dont believe in there being a god, but it doesnt bother me that people do believe there is one, when i said i have prayed in desperate times, i dont know who i was praying to, i suppose anyone that could take away the situation :oops:

You could add at least one South London member to the number of non-believers on the boards.

I was raised in a Church of England family & went to Church until I was old enough (early teens) to make a descision that organised religion held no interest to me....at no point did my parents try & tell me this was wrong, they accepted it was my choice.
The secondary school I went to was a C of E school but being in the Brixton/ Stockwell area (pretty etnically diverse) of London had a large % of non-C of E pupils & we were taught (not in any great depth) about many different religions in a fairy even handed way.

I have no problem with anyone believing in whatever faith they have (both my parents both still go to church every week), but in the same way I feel no need to tell them about it which ways I feel their religion may be wrong I do not expect to be preached to by others....the simple answer is that belief or non-belief in a religion(s) should be a personal choice & should not be forced on anyone.

I was just wondering, how you guys thought the universe was created. Oh i cannot understand atheists, there are soooo many flaws! I mean where was that matter, before the universe started come from, to make the big bang? (if that is what you believe). Imo there must have been an overuling species (eg God) to have created the universe. How otherwise could something appear from nowhere? Anyway very interested in this response now lol :thumbsup:

im no scientist so i dont know about the ins and outs of the big bang theory
maybe evolution

I was brought up catholic (bet some of you could have guessed) my parents consisted of one ex lax catholic and one convert so they were both pretty passionate about it. I disagreed from a very young age. To me it seemed wrong to promise myself to a religion I wasn't old enough to understand. (holy communion/confermation) or that someone 'promised' me into the church when I was a baby (christeniing) I like making my own decitions thank you very much!!!!!
I thought I was an aithiest when I was younger but realised I belived in something just had no idea what.

I have no problem with religion on a personal level. I love finding out about other religions but when it starts to cause trouble or friction I swtich off. To me weither you belive in god or not or Allah or not is as improtant as if you like peas or not.

I believe theres a god, i also believe in the tooth fairy. Religion is fine, each to their own..its the bragging, own language chatting, etc etc that winds people up.

So as an Atheist you believe in something but you are not sure what. As an agnostic you wouldn't believe in anything, so what is it you believe in, as your prose would suggest you are the latter?
#33
i belive in science
and i believe in what my eyes show me
#34
I suppose If you believed in god (Please insert your Gods name .................) would have said let there be light.

Whoever Wiki is your friend:thumbsup:

The Big Bang theory developed from observations of the structure of the universe and from theoretical considerations. In 1912 Vesto Slipher measured the first Doppler shift of a "spiral nebula" (spiral nebula is the obsolete term for spiral galaxies), and soon discovered that almost all such nebulae were receding from Earth. He did not grasp the cosmological implications of this fact, and indeed at the time it was highly controversial whether or not these nebulae were "island universes" outside our Milky Way.[2] Ten years later, Alexander Friedmann, a Russian cosmologist and mathematician, derived the Friedmann equations from Albert Einstein's equations of general relativity, showing that the universe might be expanding in contrast to the static universe model advocated by Einstein.[3] In 1924, Edwin Hubble's measurement of the great distance to the nearest spiral nebulae showed that these systems were indeed other galaxies. Independently deriving Friedmann's equations in 1927, Georges Lemaître, a Belgian Roman Catholic priest, predicted that the recession of the nebulae was due to the expansion of the universe.[4] In 1931 Lemaître went further and suggested that the universe began as a simple "primeval atom", echoing previous speculations about the cosmic egg origin of the universe.[5]

Starting in 1924, Hubble painstakingly developed a series of distance indicators, the forerunner of the cosmic distance ladder, using the 100 inch Hooker telescope at Mount Wilson Observatory. This allowed him to estimate distances to galaxies whose redshifts had already been measured, mostly by Slipher. In 1929, Hubble discovered a correlation between distance and recession velocity—now known as Hubble's law.[6][7] Lemaître had already shown that this was expected, given the cosmological principle.[8]

In all honesty I don't spend a great deal of time pondering things like this...I know how I got here & it's my 'belief' that when I die that's the end of that.
The way people 'go on' after death is in the memory of those around them & those their life has affected, but that's it....
