Well last night I got off work and headed to the usual convenience store with my dad at midnight. In the car ride though I heard something quite interesting. My brother came by and broke into the house (again) to get something to eat yesterday and woke my dad up asking where I was. He told him how I was at work, asked him how he got in, and then asked him something that I was a bit surprised to hear.
Over the past few years my brother's been hanging out with this older guy who me and dad only know of as "Gypsie". Obviously he's, apparently, a Gypsie. Anyhow, my dad told him about how he knew he was into Occult stuff and things like that now and Johnnie was all like "Well...not really occult but," and tried to pass things like that off a bit. Dad then asked if Johnnie still believed in God and all that. He said "Well no. I mean Jesus was a good man and everything but-" and that usual crap you hear from people that don't believe in that stuff. Apparently he's now believing more of Greek and slight Hinduish beliefs. From what he says Gypsie has now made him a Gypsie as well.
Now while all that is well and good if that's what he wants to believe, personally...I think he's just interested in stuff is all and not taking religion or anything seriously at all. You see he plays the Persona series so...yeah...I think he's kinda just trying to be more like that stuff. He's like one of the most gullible people I know.
As for me, personally I don't see how the universe could exist without God. You see, from what I can tell the universe, according to the laws of physics, should not have even started to begin with. People usually say "oh well it's all cause of the Big Bang which scattered matter across the universe". ...alright? Where did the matter come from to scatter though and get everything started? What's one of the first things we're taught in science in school? Matter can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be changed.
So how did matter come into existence to begin with then?
