I was raised catholic but was always naturally atheistic. When I was in kindergarten the parents of a kid I knew called the school to complain I was trying to make him an atheist.?
I don't see how anyone who reads Ehrman or Crossan can still be a christian. Btw part of the reason for the UFO coverup may be a desire to preserve existing beliefs.

I just say I'm "not religious" because people tend to argue about Theist vs Atheist. Why use such a weird non english expression anyway‽?
About ufo cover up I'm sceptical because I have met people who have no logic skill. For them even an air plane can be an ufo.

I know it's lightbringer in Latin 'Lucifer lux', or light bearer = luce signiferum, which represents the morningstar/planet Venus.

But knowing the secrets of the universe, why and how everything exists. Is a light bearer.

Or master of light (ascended masters).

Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )

can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??

if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?

that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
_______
for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.

So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.
Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.

( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).

if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.

Why should you waste your time?
_______
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.
___________

in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.
___________________

if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit s.ex, No g.ambling, No d.rugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
_______________________________
If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit s.ex, no g.ambling, no d.rugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
____________
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
_________________________
Source(s):
every `1 is already Blind in this world and if you will follow another Blind then you both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide you on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )
_____________
if you want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( triple w ( d . o . t ) asitis ( d . o . t ) c . o . m {Bookmark it })
read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, s.ex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.

I am an intelligent man who has found all those answers in the bible. It is not hard to do. The supreme being is The Lord God of Israel , and he makes it clear there is no other. Best wishes in your studies.

Sounds like he wants a monopoly on Godhood. I wonder what the other Gods think about that? Is it a theocratic democracy up there or a divine monocracy? Hmm.

Oh, don't sweat it. They all get together at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe built on the ruins of Magrathea, watch it all go crunch, tip a glass together, pay the bill and go home before the universe starts again in the next show.

lol, thanks man!

Honestly, I don't grok why religious types get so hung up on the logistics of religion. I mean it all seems to come down to "my god is tougher than your god" or "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?"

All just category mistakes in my opinion. Would a god that created the entire universe with more stars than grains of sand on the earth really care which book, haircut, clothing, gender, sexuality, or color of skin you have? I seriously doubt it. Most religions just boil down to "hey you guys down there, how about you try being nice to each other for a change?" And then we kill each other over who's got the best version of being nice to each other.

But I digress. Happy St Patrick's day!

But why on earth, man wants to believe in a supreme being anyways?

I have never gathered that. I event went to church daycare when I was 5-6. But I still did not catch religion.

I find the idea of one supreme being mostly scary. But I find the idea of exterrestrial intelligence very comforting.

I think the reasons have been primarily twofold with the one we cover here tacked on.

1. People wanted explanations for the origin of natural phenomena so they invented deities for them.
2. Leaders wanted a way to control and unite groups of people so they organized those deities into religious belief systems.
3. There really are strange phenomena that don't have a simple natural explanation and those became proof for their belief systems.

Me too. Moses and Jesus were my first superheroes. In essence, I think that's what they have always been.

I find the idea of supremacy irrelevant to the concept of godhood. Why do you find it scary?
I find the idea of ET adds another dimension to my otherwise boring existence. Why do you find it comforting?

Oh man this is an old thread, bit of a walk down memory lane reading through it.

Grew up in an ultra religious family and it never caught on with me, just seemed like a bunch of stories no different than fairy tales to me.... but I always questioned everything much to my family's disgust.

PS: Like the superhero analogy.
