If God doesn't exist, who decides reality?

Hello the,

Some of us need to be told what reality is, hence FOX News. And some of us don’t.

What do you mean by "hence FOX News"? I wasn't referencing anyone needing to be told what reality is. I was simply asking who decides what reality is if God doesn't exist.

What do you mean by "hence FOX News"

Hello again, the:

You asked, WHO decides what reality IS if God didn't exist.

I suggested that if that were to happen, the people who WOULD have depended on God for some truth, aren't all of a sudden going to become independent. They're still gonna need a bearer of truth to depend on..

By the same token, if there were no God, the people who DIDN'T depend on God for guidance wouldn't be affected at all. They weren't looking for a truth deliverer and, STILL wouldn't be looking for a truth deliverer..

In other words, if there was no God, the people who NEEDED to be told what's up, STILLL need to be told what's up, and that's the role FOX News plays.

Lemme ask you.. IF there was no God, to WHOM would you turn to tell you what's up?

Who is talking about taking freedoms from people? NO ONE BUT THE LEFT!

Hello again, From:


Would you take away the freedom for a gay person to marry? You WOULD.. Would you take away the freedom for a trans to pee? You WOULD. Would you take away the freedom for a woman to choose? You WOULD.. Would you take away her freedom to access contraceptives?? You WOULD.

SUPER STUPID has anyone said they want to take away the rights of the LGBTQ ????????

Why must there be a who? Why is agency necessary for existence in and of itself? Why does this agency exist to begin with, even if it is eternal? It exists just because? How does that explain anything? That just pushes the question to the origins of existence one step further arbitrarily. If this agency (god) is by definition not needing explanation then the justification of this concept as a reality seems rather desperate.

Perhaps the reality is, is that all of existence in and of itself, what constitutes everything in existence, all actual realities is currently beyond our comprehension? Does an ant comprehend a planet? Probably not. There could be very real biological constraints on what we can comprehend. Engaging in an illusion of knowledge is not productice to the pursuit of truth as it undermines the virtue of investigation. It is better to have no answers at all than to have answers out of convenience to leave the question open. What you pursue desperately leads to imitation, what you pursue passionately leads to authenticity. As Stephen Hawking said "the enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, but the illusion of knowledge".

The atheist worldview provided know basis for knowledge. It is irrational, immoral and epistemologically bankrupt.

America is a perfect example of what becomes reality when a nation censors God from the public square.

The science of Biology is twisted and ignored to the point where Progressives now say that the natural design between a man and woman is not the only reality. We now have activist LBGTQRSUWXYZ groups undermining science, all supported by the Left, all to get votes and money.

We now have so called Transgender men being allowed to play in women sports!!!!!!!

We have an extremist Democrat Party trying to FORCE every public school to allow so called Transgender boys in our daughter's bathrooms.

We have come to the sick point of a Democrat Party supporting No Restriction abortions. That means there is not one viable unborn baby alive, at any stage or for any reason, that the Left is willing to protect.

We have private Christian family owned businesses being sued if they do not cater things that go against their faith!

We have the State of North Carolina being boycotted from national sports because of their common sense stance and freedom to say they do not want so called Transgender men in women's bathrooms.

We are becoming a nation of the Big Brother thought police that will come down on you if you do not believe in and follow this Political Correct extremism.

I could go on and on about what happens to a nation when man decides he is the humanistic God that will dictate how everyone else must think and believe.

Without God, there can be no moral boundaries for society because people will never agree on what moral values a nation should lift up. That leads to this anything goes no fault culture whereby decent people can no longer speak out against irresponsible behavior.

If they do, they will be labeled judgmental hate mongering zealots and treated like the scourge of the Earth.

Only the Political Correct Big Brother Left is now allowed to judge other's for their beliefs.

Hello From,

You don’t fit my definition of “normal”. Should your freedom be taken away because of MY beliefs??

LOL, DECEPTION, DISTORTION AS ALWAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who is talking about taking freedoms from people? NO ONE BUT THE LEFT!

Just because a person wants 30 wives, or has attractions for children, or animals, or dead people, or the same sex, etc. etc. DOES NOT MEAN they have the right to FORCE every State to change their marriage laws.

IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FREEDOMS! It has to do with the rule of law, and the common sense decisions voters make in each State on election days.

Spare us any ludicrous analogy between slavery and homosexuality. It makes you look the fool.

Who defines what "freedom" you have? If you cannot provide an objective, non-arbitrary basis of freedom, then I can do what I want.
