Default Hello!

**Well...
My name is Eliomann (I prefer to hide my real name), stu-dying architecture in Lima, Perú.
I heard about Googlism for the very first time thanks to a friend of mine who lives in Australia. She's the reason why I'm here.
I chose to join because I share the same ideals shared in the section "Arguments" and "Proof". I don't believe in god because I find in it the greatest expression of intolerance, irrationalism and lack of logic in humanity.

But, how do we know he doesn't exist? how do we know he does exist? We don't know, and so, it becomes a matter of choice. I choose not to believe...becuase I don't belive in the bible, which was written by man due to "divine inspiration". I find "divine inspiration" a good way to tell people "god told me"...to then, mislead them.

In religion I see man enchained, bound to limits, losing any sense of critical thinking. How? Easy, they tell you what to think. "Do what we tell you, not what we do"...then, reason is forgotten, and the person becomes a puppet whose strings are pulled by religious leaders who drive a Lexus, use "Tag Heuer" asking for money, because "god" says you must give money. Does a poor believer have to surrender his few coins to serve god? What does logic tell you? Should I feed my stomach or give it?...Know that prayers will never fill an empty stomach...

"But god will provide"...does he? Does he provide food to those who hunger in Africa? or in India?

"No, because people there don't believe in him"...if he created us, aren't they part of "his" creation? doesn't he look after his creation? According to his "book" he does.

"But they don't believe in him"...perhaps, then those who believe in him become members of a VIP society? Where's equality? I've seen people begging to god for food, and still they starve...does he listen to them too?

"He's got his plans"...I find his "plans" stupid. Allowing brothers killing each other in wars looks to me part of a "Final Solution" sort of thing. Were "The Crusades" a plan too?

Oh wait...I forgot he allows things to happen for one reason...To show how mighty is he! That's why he doesn't do anything and allows this world to beocme the shithole it is now...
He is weak, and uses fear to scare us all, the idea of god.

I say: fear him not. Fight for your ideals. You are your own minister of your life. Your life belongs to you and depends on you what do with it. It's a huge responsability, but it's better than leaving in the "hands" of someone you don't really know exists. Or do you prefer to be one more in the long line? It's your call to make.

Wake up.

Welcome Elio.

'you are your own minister'

You said it all right there!

Is your friend from Australia a member of CoG too?

Hello Elio,
Please provide ample space above ceilings for utilities to run through. Especially above corridors. And remember that some utilities has insulation around them which makes them fatter to thread between your I-beams and reflective ceilings. Also, please provide steel for our risers to mount to. Thx

Sounds like you've recieved a very misguided and poorly presented form of Christianity, which, unfortunately, many people in today's society hold to and follow, when they miss the true point and become their own hypocrites.

Anyway, welcome on board, there are many around that share googlism, and when I'm around (normally when I'm free from the pains of uni) I do my best to present Christianity in the most accurate way.

Also, I'm a civil student, and I know how much of a pain architecture is! Good luck!
