Damn straight! Most folks have to be told the coordinates of their food hole otherwise they just shove it up their ass. :lol: Many of my customers are very much like those folks from Deliverance. :shock:

So do I think there is a God?  Hell no.  The idea that the top of the ladder is some mythical creature that behaves like us seems unlikely to me.  But I don't think the universe is all there is; instead it's only what we have the capacity to see and understand.  For all we know, the universe is just the brief moments after some sort of (what seems to us) giant "chemical" reaction.

To me, it's pretty apparent that we'll never know the true nature of the universe we live in. 
The idea that god is some mythical creature that behaves like men is ridiculous.  God is a concept so abstract that it cannot even be described or imaged by any human being.  Yet what God did when he created the universe was set these laws of physics.  We learn more of them every year, and we learn where we were wrong before.  But what set the laws of physics?  God.  Does God jump into humans brains and tell them (like Pat Robertson) that there will be a tsunami in the future?  No. That's ridiculous.  Does he embody a human like Jesus?  No that's just as ridiculous.  Does he make decisions for people, predestination?  Absolutely not that's just as ridiculous.

Food for thought:

Think of the atom.  It obeys certain laws of physics, and it also has it's own set. 

Not to be nitpickey here, because I agree with most of what you are saying, but technically, atoms obey all laws of physics.
We just don't undersand the laws correctly yet.
Men don't make the laws of physics. They discover them. Perhaps we are getting close to understanding them, perhaps not.
We are definitly making great leaps forward each year.

Recently, using new telescope technology, Scientists have seen objects that were 13 BILLION light years away.

The current best estimate of the age of the Universe is 13.7 Billion years.

That means that we have caught a glimpse of the Universe only 700 Million years old!
Thats pretty damn impressive considering that the first telescope was invented a mere 400 years ago.
I think that the day when we can develop a telescope that can see that additional 700 Million years is probably not far off.

I don't know about you guys, but I find that idea incredible.

In my opinion ,  Jesus was probably  a modern day Marthin Luther King, from 2000 years ago.  I haven't researched anything,  I went to a Catholic school, and i'm not religious at all.  Its possible he existed but not as an all knowing powerful being,   He was a jew, spoke aramaic , human, and taught  like a Dahli Lhama.  It was entertainment for people in those times and probably got blown way out of proportion.  All people who have talked about loving one another and bringing peace to the world were killed just like jesus,  lennon, mlk, jfk, etc.  He was probably an iconoclast of that time.

Jesus had a lot of great ideas, none of them original. I believe that he thought he was doing the right thing.

I don't think he was killed for his beliefs, like Lennon, MLK or JFK, I think he was killed because he was stirring shit up. The Romans killed people all of the time, for sport.
Killing was no big deal to the Romans. Hell, probably more than half of the Emperors were murdered for their position.
Jesus was just 'making waves' so off his ass. I don't think that they were threatened by his philosophy or his little cult.

his beliefs were stirring everything up,  but yea we're on the same page.  Its just ppl resistant to change and he was preaching change ( if he existed).  None of the peace preachers have original ideas i mean you can't expand on the topic of peace i mean its like black and white with love and peace , hate and war.  Its more important about why and what time they were trying to preach peace and how that effected ppl.
