Latest comment: I'm still here I just don't care any more. Most boreme users are immature jerks that do not deserve the amount of time I previously dedicated.

I used to think that god didn't exist, but now I understand that he does - in our imagination. God came into existence after consciousness in humans evolved. Otherwise, what was he doing for 13 billion years since the Big Bang?

That's an interesting question - what was god doing before humans came along. We have plenty of indirect evidence of god in the form of writings, churches, personal experiences, wars fought in the name of, etc. but only for humans. Before humans arrived, there is not a shred, or even hint of evidence, direct or indirect. In fact, we don't find evidence for god outside of humankind even today. We don't see termite temples in honour of the creator, or dogs that pray. It's so obvious that god is a figment of our imagination, that the question should really be: why do so many people still believe?

Why do people still believe? Probably best answered by a psychiatrist.

I agree with that - we make up all kinds of fictions which affect our behaviour only because we believe in them: corporations, money, love, friendship etc.

Does your friendship continue to exist if neither of you believes the other is a friend?

Philosophy corner: my father is dead - does he continue to exist? If "yes" then the friendship continues. But generally I'd say "no". Where's cengland0 when you need him?

Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.
