    False dogma is full of holes. It lacks the logic of truth. Heaven and Hell are man made interpretations of what happens to you if you sin/live a good life. And that's not what this thread is supposed to be about! I asked you if you have any solid concrete reasons for belief in God, any EXPERIENCES that keep your belief rooted in reality.

    I have some, but I'll only share if asked because I feel SILLY for believing in higher powers. Why would they exist and allow for us to feel that way? That's why I'll keep it vague, because are alien god beings really watching over us? Nobody knows.

    I've had some religious experiences. It was a form of a high while praying in tongues. :)

    Did a higher power speak to you or reveal itself to you? Or did you just work yourself up into a mental frenzy and get all sketched out?

    I have no idea but it felt like I was in the glory of God but I don't really know, of course. :)

    Christianity got Heaven and Hell mostly from Zoroastrianism, and the idea of Satan as an opposing evil force from God and the idea of angels as separate beings from God from that. :)

    Yeah I had an experience like that, when I was walking away from a job that I hated and was dangerous. I felt uplifted, like I was being guided away from something I didn't need. It was very spiritual.

    One of my Church friends said that I shouldn't watch Star Wars because the Force is sacrilegious, lol. :(

    I've had similar experiences with weed. I read that meditation can do get you high, too. :) And of course, sex. I've this one boyfriend that hit all of the right notes during oral sex and it was so ecstatically blissful. Sadly, he couldn't duplicate the experience for me. :(

    Mind control. Do you know what mind control is? You're being mind controlled. Christianity in a nutshell.

    Not really. Where I live, Christian churches don't really have that kind of sway. They wouldn't try to dominate you because they are competing with other churches and religions for converts, so they don't want to drive you away. :)

    I used to pray to the Easter Bunny but once I discovered he wasn’t real I didn’t have any more spiritual experiences. Our Mother recently told me she was a good church girl. lmfao yeah right I said to her. She’s like “I know you don’t want to hear that” I’m like no, I don’t believe you.

    I wasn't allowed to watch cartoons when I was younger because my mum thought it was witchcraft how cartoons could speak. So, I grew up watching things like Saw instead.

    Saw teaches you life lessons. If you get trapped in a cell with your ankle chained up, saw it off. :)
