Why is it that god created weird attractions? Like my fucking goodness, I don't want to get slapped in the balls for having a picture of Judy Hopps or Nick Wilde on my phone or something.

My mother would be like "OH! You want to molest a little bunny rabbit girl and fox little boy?!" or something as hurtful as the act of god strucking lighting down onto your mortal soul known as your husky shell in this planet we call earth.

I think Christians derive their deontological ethics (shall nots) from teleology (universe design). Long ago someone thought, "We are designed to have children therefore doing things that diverge from this are bad." Hence, homosexuality and bestiality are wrong, not because of the act, but because they don't produce children. But, I think in some context, they do have purpose. Homosexuality may further social bonding. Bestiality may introduce new genetics into the pool.

I believe in teleoNOMY (the thought that due to complex systems, things only appear to have purpose).

Your attraction to cute animals may be a survival trait among animals. Cute animals are usually cared for by humans. Having a source of free food is great for survival.

It helps no one to be reductive, I believe that, we are here, implies, to some degree, that there are forces larger than us. Now, we can get into the semanticalities of-

>>92692

Memes aside, I don't really believe in the "found in the bible" version of god, nor any other religion really. They all have something of a similar basis and stricture, that being "worship this god, and by proxy those who lead the church/uphold the word and teachings of this god, or else you'll be killed and/or suffer for all eternity in some specific firey hellscape." Stuff like that was clearly devised in order to obtain power and control over a mass looking for answers.

On the otherhand, however, I also don't really buy the idea that everything just "happened" one day, and all of this just came into being by pure scientific happenstance. So to some degree I do believe there's "forces larger than us" at play.

I've read, and liked, the notion that the original message was, "the Creator (whatever/whoever you call that) loves you, and you'll have more after this life is through," and the early organized churches realized that modifying it to "the Creator loves you, but you're disconnected for some reason; you can be reconnected, but only if you follow our rules and have us show you the way" could be a vehicle for money and control. They came, they looked at the road, and they built themselves a toll booth on it.

>If all parties agree on the reliability of an authority in the given context it forms a valid inductive argument.

Well, okay, let's look at who Francis Bacon was, and whether he is considered a "reliable authority": https://infogalactic.com/info/Francis_Bacon

>English philosopher and statesman, who served as Attorney General, and as Lord Chancellor of England. His works are credited with developing the scientific method, and remained influential through the scientific revolution.

>Bacon has been called the father of empiricism.

https://infogalactic.com/info/Empiricism

<Empiricism is a theory that states that knowledge comes only or primarily from sensory experience. It is one of several views of epistemology, the study of human knowledge, along with rationalism and skepticism. Empiricism emphasizes the role of empirical evidence in the formation of ideas, over the notion of innate ideas or traditions; empiricists may argue however that traditions (or customs) arise due to relations of previous sense experiences.

<Empiricism in the philosophy of science emphasizes evidence, especially as discovered in experiments. It is a fundamental part of the scientific method that all hypotheses and theories must be tested against observations of the natural world rather than resting solely on a prior reasoning, intuition, or revelation.

<Empiricism, often used by natural scientists, says that "knowledge is based on experience" and that "knowledge is tentative and probabilistic, subject to continued revision and falsification." One of the epistemological tenets is that sensory experience creates knowledge. Empirical research, including experiments and validated measurement tools, guides the scientific method.

>His works argued for the possibility of scientific knowledge based only upon inductive and careful observation of events in nature. Most importantly, he argued this could be achieved by use of a skeptical and methodical approach whereby scientists aim to avoid misleading themselves. While his own practical ideas about such a method, the Baconian method (https://infogalactic.com/info/Baconian_method), did not have a long lasting influence, the general idea of the importance and possibility of a skeptical methodology makes Bacon the father of scientific method. This marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, the practical details of which are still central in debates about science and methodology today.

Okay, so Francis Bacon is the one who created the entire scientific process that is used today to determine what we consider to be "factual".

But, then again, the guy died almost 400 years ago. what about more recent figures? Well, there's William James, the first educator to teach psychology in America, and considered to be one of the biggest influences on philosophy.

>The turbulent billows of the fretful surface leave the deep parts of the ocean undisturbed; and to him who has a hold on vaster and more permanent realities, the hourly vicissitudes of his personal destiny seem relatively insignificant things. The really religious person is accordingly unshakable and full of equanimity, and calmly ready for any duty that the day may bring forth.

But, then again, Stephen Hawking said that Philosophy is dead, so no reason to ever use any philosophers as a source. Oh, how about Alexis Carrel, the Nobel Prize winning French doctor who pioneered all of today's vascular suture techniques, the use of antibiotics, and organ transplants.

>Prayer is the most powerful form of energy one can generate. It is a force as real as terrestrial gravity. As a physician, I have seen men, after all other therapy had failed, lifted out of disease and melancholy by the serene effort of prayer. … Prayer like radium is a source of luminous, self-generating energy. … In prayer, human beings seek to augment their finite energy by addressing themselves to the Infinite source of all energy. When we pray, we link ourselves with the inexhaustible motive power that spins the universe. We pray that a part of this power be apportioned to our needs. Even in asking, our human deficiencies are filled and we arise strengthened and repaired. … Whenever we address God in fervent prayer, we change both soul and body for the better. It could not happen that any man or woman could pray for a single moment without some good result.

However, he also believed that cells in the body could divide indefinitely, so I guess that makes him an unreliable source.

How about someone who actually has done extensive research in the field of psychology and helped hundreds of people with proven methods, such as Carl Jung.

<During the past thirty years, people from all the civilised countries of the earth have consulted me. I have treated many hundreds of patients. Among all my patients in the second half of life-that is to say, over thirty-five-there has not been one whose problem in the last resort was not that of finding a religious outlook on life. It is safe to say that every one of them fell ill because he had lost that which the living religions of every age have given to their followers, and none of them has been really healed who did not regain his religious outlook.

Or, does he not count because he dared to call out Freud for the hack that he was with trying to found some way to explain and justify his mother complex?

I guess, in some ways, there is no "valid sources", so we might as well be quoting complete nobodies, such as the psychologist Henry C. Link: https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.264624/page/n5

>My return to religion was not due to the depression, although that trying period served to project certain facets into holder relief. It was not due to old age and approaching senility which often play strange tricks with the mind; ... My return to religion was not due to misfortune or to disappointments with the affairs of life; ... Indeed, there has been nothing sensational or dramatic in my conversion, if I may call it such. There was no great experience, no emotional cataclysm, and no dazzling revelation, which marked the change of which I write. The change was a gradual one, of which I was for a long time unaware. It was due entirely to the routine experiences encountered in the practice of my profession, psychology.

However, all these people have talked about is whether religion is important, not if God actually exists. But, isn't that a faulty argument to begin with in the first place? You cannot prove that something doesn't exist:

https://infogalactic.com/info/Evidence_of_absence

Therefore, anyone trying to say that "God doesn't exist" has already shot themselves in the foot. However, what one can say is, "Is there evidence showing the existence of a God?" That's the question people should be asking.
