RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Unicorns, for example. But no, that doesn't quite work. Lack of proof doesn't necessarily mean non-existance. It does, however, justify not believing in something.

Hm...I do believe that God exists, but I also believe that he's got more important universal things to do than listen to prayers. I've been given him a lifelong break from mine Smile

RE: Your thoughts on God?

There is a God, just not in a traditional sense, and here is proof, and me explaining what he is.
(02-15-2012 01:12 PM)IamNoone Wrote:  God exists as a metaphysical representation of the good wil of people and as the people's belief in Him which allows Him to help people
When I said that people believing in God allows God to help people, I mean that, in believing in Him, several things can happen. One is that people will feel a sense of being loved or accepted, something that many who have lost a spouse or family member or have never had that sense of being loved can achieve. Also, people will lose fear of their own mortality. Even though this may be an illusion, it isoneof those times where alie is better then the truth. Third, a belief in God has spawned countless charitable organizations, church communities, and other groups. The last two target the same group liable to join gangs, the ones who do not feel loved at home.

The reason I am saying God exists is because He has done this with both a physical and metaphysical form. A physical form would be the prophets, such as Jesus, who started it, and in a metaphysical sense, becauseHe continues to work without a singular physical body to work through, but through some kind of nonphysical but existing, there fore metaphysical , force.

...Win. There's no actual proof of an existence but believing in a "higher entity that will protect you" is easier for a lot of people.

RE: Your thoughts on God?

Don't forget how many little boys and girls pope fucked. wars and dead people there are because of religion and then compare it to illusion it creates, is it really worth it? I don't think so, I consider my mind a God, if you can't understand what I mean, then you are probably stuck with the same old image and definition of god.

I get what you mean about "my mind is a God" but I don't agree with that anyone mind is a God.

And honestly, people only use God as an excuse to do things they wanted to do but were otherwise unjustifiable, similar to the USA using the Cold War as an excuse to install governments in Latin America that supported US businesses.

The simplest way to put it is that he does stuff but he doesn't actually physically exist currently, therefore he must be something, and that something is metaphysical. If anyone can explain better, please try for me.

My evidence is solid, just hard to understand/explain.
That article might do good normally, but this is MY idea on theology, and no none but you has tried to write a counter proof yet.
