I've always been fascinated by the world we're living in. Though to some they may seem dumb, real questions are actually "Why are we living in this world". I've always asked myself (like everyone) if the universe actually had an ending. Some will say that there's no ending, but how can something be endless? I mean you've gotta hit a "wall" when you're at some point near the end. But that wall, there certainly is something behind it..... Urgggggggghhh, it frustrates me so much to not being able to get an answer to such questions. Who knows the possibilites of why we're here and how everything is working is such a mystery, it could even be something like the Matrix, but then again, what do I know? What do WE know? The possibilites are endless. The universe could even be a high tech children game and we're all part of the game! WHO KNOWS!!?!?!??!?!

And you will think those types of questions should be left to philosophers or whatever crazy scientist, but in my opinon, those are the FUNDAMENTAL questions of the human being.

I've always thought that life itself was a mystery.... ... AND a pen that drops from a table is a mystery AS WELL, see, things that our eyes are getting used to watch makes it seem NORMAL to us, and things we never (or rarely) get to see (ex.:ghosts) are evidently associated to mysteries. But such a thinking is false in my opinion.......

I've always thought that we AREN'T GOING ANYWHERE, you can never get an answer to anything!!! Ex.: let's say I ask you why does a pen fall down when I dropo it..... You'll tell me it's because of gravity, and you can even go on an talk to me about Newton and you can even make calculs out of it all, but all you're explaining to me is HOW things happened not WHY!!!! Don't know if you guys are getting it.... But even if you finally (FOR EXAMPLE!!!) get to an answer that it's because of God. But there's still another WHY and you'll go on and on and on and asking why all the time, so you're never gonna get an answer.....

Anyways, I just felt like typing all this...

The universe is a real, quantifiable thing. Therefore its existence must be explainable. However, that doesn't mean a human mind - pulp of flesh and blood with chemical injected emotions, made rigid by 10,000 years of social convention and evolutionary adaptation - could ever comprehend the explanation.

That's what I've always thought.

I always thought about that stuff... I even think I typed it the same way (capital letters, colors) ... but no...I never arrived to other conclusion rather than god's inexistence.

Not really. No religion other than Buhddism, which is excluded on account of true Buhddism not having any concept as crude as a single God-entity, explains who made God. God and the Big Bag are on level-pegging as far as explaining things go (in fact you could even say God made the Big Bang if you wanted to but you're still not getting anywhere).

i always think about this sort of stuff.... like what is the point of the world? whats beyond the universe? is space a confined sphere like earth and there is something beyond that... oh it hurts my brain... or are we just like "The Sims?" hahaha

Humans made God and I don't believe in the opposite.

Religion is an attempt for humans to give a sense to their life.

I suppose religion answers some of our questions, if you can accept god as a celestial being who created the universe, and then try to comprehend the magnitude of the universe, then you will find that comprehending god or his existance thereof is a fruitless and i dare say, impossible task for the human mind, and many have tried.
