Re: God's Existence has a 0% Chance
What it all boils down to is that having a religion is a complete waste of time, and believing in a well described religion is certainly delusional behaviour.

Why would such a vast number of people participate in such a huge delusion? It seems incredible the human race can be so gullable.

Re: The Evolution of Delusion
yes, well I can see ignorance as playing a huge part in the delusions but what excuse is there today to hold on to such childish beliefs?

Re: Observation and Statistics
But my point was one made from observation. As no one religion has a majority in the world, even if one of them were true, the majority of the religious people of the world must be following false religions, and that's statistically undeniable.

Great point but do they beieve in the same God?

Re: The Evolution of Delusion
Moreover, given events like 9/11, I would say that there are compelling reasons not to believe.

I don't quite get your point here magda. Are you saying that events such as 9/11 prove there is no god or make it hard to believe there is one? What if the real god was punishing us?
