I made a post last night about what the main flaw in existentilism is. My teacher gave us the "answer"He said that God is the answer. That God just is and that we can not assign meaning to God. If humans never exsisted then God would still exsist. If you are an existentialist then you believe that we give meaning to everything. There is not right or wrong, no good or evil. Well we can not place a limit on God and we can not say that he has meaning becasue of us. He just is and therefore is is everything.

I really don't agree with my teacher.

What do you think?

Wow.


Ask him to justify a belief in the existence of god. When he absolutely can't, as no one can. Kick him in the ****ing face for being such an idiot.

dude respect others beliefs, approach the problem in a mature way.
to TS, its just a matter of personal opinion. He believes in God, so he believes the way he does. Respect it, but you can have your own.

I thought existentialists denied the existance of God? At this point I do think humans give meaning to life. The way I see it is species live to reproduce and keep the species alive, but humans can decide meanings for their own lives and right for one man may be wrong to another.

Agreed. 100%. Gah does noone have any tolerance anymore xD

I agree with that. And I guess I'm not an existentialist. We have our own interpretations or opinions on everything, but for it to exist we don't have to exist.
I don't view God in a Christian way. I see God in a profound way. He/she/it is always there, it connects every one of us to each other, to every thing. It flows everywhere, it just exists. It's the undertow, the truth, the force of life. And we can't really understand, or maybe we do understand but can't explain it.

He just told a class of people that they were wrong if they did not believe in god. Screw respecting his beliefs. Especially if he can't show respect for a class of peoples (Which he obviously cannot).

Though, politcally, it's probably best not to kick your teacher in the face

I personally think that humainty tries to give an explanation for everything by applying math to the situation. If you got realy technical you could say that we dont exist, that reality is just a facade, there is no truth - only how we percieve and act, etc. I think we just need ot accept the fact that not everything can be explained and we simply exist for a purpose unfathomable by the human mind. And I just realized that I just rambled on for an entire paragraph.

It's going to be difficult to have a candid discussion of an atheistic philosophy in a religious organization. I'd say let it slide.

he just said now he goes to a catholic school, so the teacher has every right
but i see your point since you didn't know that before and if it was in a public school, youd probly be right

I'll accept it, as it's a catholic school.

I will however lodge my feelings about parents who send their children to religous schools and religious schools themselves; I don't like them.

I think that is a fine way to view religon


I don't get why people get in such a fuss over wheter God is real or not. I could see questioning religion because of other reaons, such as war, those who force beliefs down other's throats, poltical use,etc. But when people argue religion shouldn't exsist just because God isn't real, I think that is just kinda dumb on there part. God doesn't have to be real for you to believe

Completely true. I doubt that we'll ever be smart enough to know.

I believe in God and apparently you can prove he exsists by reading Thomas Aquanices'(spelling?) proofs that God exsists. One is that he is the Unmoved mover. I don't know that his proofs are true, but I do think there is a God.
