We all know that they could easily be disproved
You can't DISPROVE them any more than you can disprove your own beliefs. You can't prove those particular negatives, except insofar as you can prove the beliefs are self-contradictory. Difficult to do with something as poorly defined as religion, its defenders just shift around effortlessly.
They believe that a genetic mutation in both humans and animals are gods, while ignoring the fact that their medical state is pretty poor compared to the Western World.
Translation : while their standard of living is low compared to the US, that could change in a matter of generations if they taught their children math and science, and the Americans taught their children religious dogma in its place.
A lot of them never even heard of Christianity
Amazing, that someone would know nothing about the religions practiced on the other side of the globe?
As for the creation and destruction, everything must have an opposite. There is just no more explanation to that. Suppose that Shiva didn't exist if Hinduism is correct? There would be nothing but universal creation. No destruction of matter.
Sorry, I had to take a call. Can you repeat that? You're Mr. Death, and you've come about the reaping?

"Suppose that Shiva didn't exist if Hinduism is correct?"
Then it wouldn't be Hinduism. Suppose Jesus didn't exist if Christianity is correct.

I'm glad this has finally been cleard up.

Uhm... I'm pretty sure, just like Christianity, Hinduism is older than modern science. Of course the gods wouldn't have a "concept of science".
It's not surprising many of them have not heard of Christianity. A large number of people with constant internet access know precious little about other cultures and religions, why should people who aren't exposed to other religions through any means? Oh wait, I forgot, people who haven't had a chance to hear about Christ are still somehow supposed to know about him and what he did, and so they deserve to go to hell for not believing.
The rest of that makes no sense.

"A lot of them never even heard of Christianity."
I envy them.
1/25/2009 12:27:33 AM
I second that.

His name says it all. Shit goes in, shit goes out.

Fucking hell. Failing to have a concept of science? What about your creationism bullshit? And the fact that you constantly disagree with homosexuality despite the fact people are BORN that way and it has been PROVEN MEDICALLY, YES MEDICALLY with BRAIN SCANS showing the difference between the STRAIGHT and HETRO BRAIN!

Well, at least the user name's accurate, 'cause he's full of shit.
I'm polytheistic, and I fail to be insulted by this just because it's so ignorant!

"As for the creation and destruction, everything must have an opposite."
...Are you endorsing Taoism, then?

My skydaddy's penis is bigger than yours. Lalalalala.

1. I think you've just proven that Shiva does exist.
2. Matter is neither created nor destroyed. Um, duh?

I refuse to believe Santa Claus didn't see the need to give you a pair of hip boots for Christmas.

1. Hindu Gods are not anti science. The problem is that there are three ways to get to Nirvana in Hinduism. People only remember the first which is prayer. The two others are Buddha (enlightenment or knowledge) and Karna (good deeds).
Both are regarded as liberated so indeed science is encouraged. Anything science says goes in Hinduism. Not to mention good behaviour. A doctrine of Knowledge lies polarly opposite to your religion's "original sin".
2. The medical state in India was formed in the 1950s and had to catch up to the rest of the world after literally centuries of abuse. Not to mention there are more people in India than North America making it kind of hard to provide medical care. It does have excellent medical care in some aspects. Everyone gets treated or atleast tries to unlike the USA.
3. Your claiming stuff does not get broken? Put it this way, the Hindu pantheon is quite elegant since it is a monotheistic deist god that exists. These are merely aspects of him. It's quite nifty in that it can slot gods into itself with relative ease making it more accepting of other faiths.
4. Monotheist abrahamic religion ruined this aspect by belittling it and forcing it to become the horrible entity that it is today.

You're using logic and evidence to disprove Gods, you're so close you only have one more to go.
1/25/2009 12:22:21 PM
Rome and Egypt were built within such God concepts. Christianity (in fact the big three) were all created and flourished in cultures of ignorance.
You can't join science or advancment with your religion, the Dark Ages are directly linked to it's influence
1/25/2009 1:17:16 PM
Yeah, except Shiva is the patron god of both creation and destruction, braintrust.
I didn't even have to look that up, I just knew it.

If Hinduism is correct, then Shiva would exist. That makes as much sense as saying something about Poseidon not existing if Greek mythology is correct.
