Thing is, if we believe in all the bible tells us then no matter what we do, it won't matter.
That is fatalism, the very fatalism that I detect. It's not Biblical. The Bible speaks of predestination and free choice and the prescience of God. It doesn't say "no matter what you do it doesn't matter".

The only thing that matters is what we do. The only thing that matters is that we do right.

Nowhere in the Bible do I find support for the fatalism that you express and is so common in Christianity.

Free choice, yes. The ability to decide right and wrong and then deal with the consequences of our decision.

Thing is, Jesus was a perfect man and we are supposed to live our lives according to him. Remember when Jesus heard that John the Baptist had been thrown in prison, he was sad but he did not help. When he found out that John had been killed, this also upset him as it was his friend, but he did not go resurrect him.

There is a reason why he did not step in to help his friend.

As for the predistined things that the bible may brush on, not one of them is to do with human behaviour, it predestines events. For instance, the birth of Christ.

Even Christ could have stumbled and gone wrong otherwise the devil would not have tried to tempt him as it would have been to no avail. So even Jesus had the capacity to stumble, which shows that even his life's path could not be predestined.

God reveals its existence at a pinnacle of pleasure and during a spiral of demise.

It has been a while, been busy.

First nice santa suite dude. Gio, Why do you not just go get Danni and bring her home to meet the Mum. Hey, if she turns out to be a cold fish throw her back.

The key is just to go for it. I know your thinking crazy American, but Gio what if it works. There is no finite in life there is always a What if. Quote by me.

Well i think its a 4th dimensional which controls us just as we control characters in a video game.
I just want to start out by saying this is my opinion and I am by no way means trying to hurt anyone's feel goods.

Well with that being said, "God" is a superficial word dating back a couple of millenia with the white man. I apologize but I have been asked why I do not believe in "GOD" and to be frank, the catholic religion is filled up with too many hypocrisies. First let's start out by saying why label a supreme being with a masculine name like "GOD," why not goddess, benevolent one, etc. How is it possible as well for "god" to be uncaring, un-naturing, evil, etc. in the old testiment with vengeful characteristics and then all of a sudden in the new testiment he sends his son (which by the way is also himself in human form according to the holy bible) to the earth to save all of his "children" from their sins?

I believe that we are the makers of our own destiny, but there is a higher power then us. I do not believe though that there is some "old man in a long white robe with a long white beard" who has predetermined the way that our lives will go.

Question WE ARE ALL STAR DUST

The meaning of God is different for everyone. Even different among people of the same religion. Everyone's brain is different and the existence of God or the concept of God is interpreted differently, like it or not.

For me, I feel that God, or what ever it is called, is some center from which all matter comes from. If you try to conceptualize the vastness of space....it can be scary.

So where did all the stuff come from. Carl Sagan said it best; "We are all star dust." So where did the star dust come from? I don't know, but it comes from some central force. There must be some root of existence, some place or some thing that all the elements came from to create stars and planets and ultimately, humans.
