    I don't believe/follow everything in the bible.

    But I worship the Christian God and believe that Jesus died form my sins.

    But what do you expect a Christian bible to say? I would assume most religions have it somewhere that our belief is the only way to get to heaven/reach spiritual enlightenment/ or become a 23 lvl arch wizard!

    If you are a muslim you would know that Allah is simply the Arabic word for God. Also isn't pride a sin.. even in the Islam?



    You shouldn't hate religious people, you don't even know them, there are some friendly people among them. Besides hating is a rather 'strong' word. Also what religion do you hate? As not every religion is the same.

    True, but I'm not the kind of Christian who follows the teachings of the bible blindingly.

    I believe that if your good in life, you get into Heaven. If your bad you go to Hell. Of course I believe in praying for forgiveness (I often do it). But I also believe if someone doesn't believe in God is truly sorry and guilty about something in life, then God would forgive them.

    That would be a god I could believe in.

    If you have depraved desires but you never act on them: Are you evil with impeccable self control, or are you good?

    Deep down most of us have those dark thoughts. If we never act upon them then we are good people.

    Good and bad are both subjective, there are no good or bad people there is only a matter of perspective.

    I'm going to beat you to death with Daybreak by Friedrich Nietzche.

    No, not actually a threat, but I want to.

    He's wrong though.

    With the emergence of consciousness comes the possibility of evil. Inflicting suffering on another being is bad(evil).

    I really hate Nihilists, denying terms and definitions doesn't mean they don't exist. Some of commonly accepted morality is arbitrary, but some of it is symbiotic with the existence of consciousness.

    The thing about philosophy is you don't have to be right or wrong to conciser the possibilities. And how wrong is he? I am a good person, who will do whatever it takes to protect my friends and family from harm.

    I didn't say there were not grey areas, I said that denying the existence of evil is incorrect.
