But again you're talking emotionally. You cannot believe in any existence of a 'god' without emotional thought. This may hurt you, but if you really want to believe in a god then you obviously have to ignore all facts and knowledge, and most importantly, justify this in your emotional thoughts by also refusing to dwell too long thinking about the obvious reasons why all gods or religions are invented by humans, for whatever purpose and therefore obviously don't exist. This may sound offensive, but only ignorance can allow an emotional mind to believe in something that can't possibly exist, try not to think of the modern offensive use of the word 'ignorance', and understand what I really mean by its proper definition. But what I never understand with religious justification, is WHY do you need a nice fluffy meaning of life? Everything you wrote to try and persuade yourself that there is a god and religious meaning to your life, was emotional hope, you even said that religion is good even if its not true, which it isn't quite often, also most religions are very sexist. Of course faith in religion is built on beleiving that something exists without the need for proof, it obviously couldn't work else, as I stated earlier. But life is life and the universe is so beautiful anyway, why do you need to make up a fluffy lovely impossible meaning to this. Why do you need to believe in some egotistical, judgemental god to justify your existence or give you a reason to have a child, this reflects your emotional flaws and frailties and has nothing to do with the physical mechanics of the universe, which has no emotion. To understand this you first have to learn what emotions really are and how they work in a human body and you will realise that you are projecting your own emotional needs and fluffy designs on everything. You could study more and learn how your body actually works, find the reasons why a scientist says something works a certain way. Knowledge and understanding delivers a much more fulfilling existence I think, this is just my personal opinion of course, but as I live my life I find so much excitement and pleasure in being able to understand exactly how things work because of what I've studied. I don't need to use a magical reason to explain how emotions work, what they are and how they effect our thoughts, for example. You could also understand how things work, you just have to study it and understand what you study. Of course my pleasure and excitement at understanding the facts of the universe are emotions also, but obviously these are emotions ignited by understanding facts unemotionally. But what you're are doing is trying to use your emotional desires to explain something you don't understand, do you see the difference? The problem us humans have in trying to explain something we don't understand, is its hard not to think emotionally, but you must understand surely that these protein emotions can't possibly exist in any thing not organic, don't you?. So the need for you to find an emotional meaning in your existence and life is your desire and not that of anything un organic, or anything without a clump of cells we call a brain, because if you study how your body works exactly, you would know that emotions can't possible exist in those objects and that everything has basically just coalesced and settled into the existence that we observe around us, observed mainly through our brains absorbing reflections, through what we call eyes, of a small part of what humans have called the electromagnetic spectrum, visible light. The real reason of how humans have evolved to exist as a sentient species, amongst millions of other species, is far more beautiful and exciting, we don't need to make up a magical reason anymore, the evidence we have is out there if you want to study it. But, another very important thing to consider, is that all these words we are using to communicate are also human invented. No other species has a language on our little planet. Other animals can't consider their emotions like we can, nor can they interact in as much detail their thoughts and desires. People constantly project their complex emotions on their pets, for example. Most people would quite confidently say that their pets "love" them. Again this is projecting their emotional desires and thoughts on to something else, this is explaining something emotionally. In fact, a dog, for example, has no knowledge of the human invented word love and doesn't have the same thought processes as a human. The pet owner only sees something which they have decided they will call love, without knowing anything of the chemical interactions that are performed to create a behaviour in humans that we have invented the word "love" to explain. Dogs don't have complex thought processes like us, they can't consider their emotions like humans can, so obviously they don't have the necessary tools to create a complex communication language and tell each other why and how much they love each other, because they don't. They just felt something, they don't know what or why and they act on it, unless they've been disciplined not to. In fact dogs have evolved a strict hierarchy system of existence, and that's all they are doing as pets, we are their packs. Dogs have evolved to exist as the species they are at the moment. We humans have then taken them and bred them to be acceptable to us, by selecting the most child like submissive dogs and breeding those until all offspring exhibit a submissive behaviour during adulthood.
All things in the universe work the way they work. We humans have evolved the ability for complex thought, so we can think deeply about things. But our brain is also interacting with other evolutionary processes called emotions, these directly effect our thought processes and are very difficult to ignore. A long time ago our ancestors didn't know why their crops wouldn't grow some years, leaving them vulnerable and hungry. They weren't able to study their environment in the detail we can today. So, mainly through desperation, they would have probably worshiped something they thought would directly effect the success of their crops, from their ignorant view of their environment, maybe a large seemingly hot and bright yellow object above them, that seemed to affect the growth of their crops when clearly visible for long periods of time.
This is why religion has swept across Africa so quickly, first Christianity brought over by Europeans, and now Islam. Africa is full of vulnerable people, desperately clinging on to life. There are people in Africa suffering more than you would think possible, for reasons you'd think weren't possible, while we sit comfortable in our fluffy little lives moaning about bad wifi coverage or wether or not your little existence requires a nice lovely emotional meaning or not.
All evidence to explain how your brain works, how humans have evolved and the mechanics of the physical universe is available to you, if you want to know how things really work. There are some amazingly intelligent scientists around the world and if you studied not just what they've discovered, but, more importantly HOW they discovered what they know, then you would understand that what they say isn't just correct, but how brilliant these scientists are to prove what they have discovered.
Please, if you wish to continue an ignorant existence and don't wish to study and discover why scientists say what they say. Then at least please try to resist from your need to discredit their discoveries and justify your unbelievably magical, fluffy and perfect emotional reasoning of existence. Just remember, these are human words were using now, humans invented these communication techniques, not the universe. But isn't everything we've discovered, invented, accomplished and what we do everyday so much more amazing and beautiful, than having to explain everything by the will and allowance of some made up magical god. We don't need to anymore, the evidence is already available for you to study if you want to understand :-)
