There is Probably No God

Just saw it on the news.. an Atheist group has put an advert up displaying "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life" on Londons buses.

That is the message I would like to see more... less religion forced apone us and more Scientific views. What do you think?

I believe in free will.

I don't think that religions should be forced upon people, I think that each child should get the chance to choose what religion he/she takes part in at a suitable age. Hopefully, it should dumb down the controversy between science and religion.

I'm a Catholic myself, and I choose to believe in things as I see fit. I believe there is a God, although I'm an avid science fanatic and I often see things which contradict religion. I do also think that some of the Bible is a bit too abnormal to believe, but as I have come to learn, there are explanations for even the most silly things.

Well, thats my opinion.

I agree.

As an Atheist myself, my argument against Religion is simple; It is nothing but one of many creations of the human race.

The only reason we created it in the form of Sun worship and evolved it over time to what it is today was to satisfy our lack of understanding.

I won't go into dept on my views as this is not an Atheist forum.

On this particular subject I always quote Albert Einstein:

"If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed."

I am christian, yet like my science.

i have a sci-christian view ^^ lol

I dont think what the aethiasts did was right...the term aethiasm is a group alongside other religious groups in my view (like in a drop down form). So therefore, by doing that they were also "forcing" their idea on the subject on others.

meh - let people choose

I detest the heads of religions.

Religion does make me giggle tho, people tend to pick and chose what parts of it to follow, and change the sect`s belief dependent on the era.

The only true religion is Cash.

I always did find it funny that one of my science teachers taught us the way that the universe was created from the big bang etc but he was a major religious nut who believed the Bible version of creation.

The Bible in my opinion should be viewed like Aesop's fables. There is some good MEANING to what is said but no truth.

I am a man of Science and always will be. Much to the annoyance of said teacher, or was that my insistence of wearing my Antichrist superstar shirt to his lessons?

I totally agree with this one, in my opinion I think religion is to blame for alot of wars and hatred.
