Replenish the Earth is not mentioned from Genesis because selfishness and stupidity rule. God never said to OVERpopulate the Earth, use up all the soil, animals, plants, and water, or pollute ourselves to death. Most of the books are really made up writings of various human beings for various reasons, often delusional--most often with nothing to do with God the Creator.
I am a Deist. I don't need the made up sections of the Bible, the Bagdiva, writings of bullshit bhudda, Joe Smith, or the koran. I don't need a BS tax write off church. I feel sorry for atheists and agnostics. Even Stephen Hawking said that God must exist because mathematically there was only a one in 100,000 chance of this being a positive universe.
i used to say i was atheist....but i dont know if that label fits. i just refuse to "worship" in general.
It is a direct and loving communication with the Great Spirit, the Creator of love, beauty, the universe, and all the Laws of Nature. The love of the Father can be felt, and guidance and power from Him is palpable to those who only seek and ask. I pray to do God's Will, not my own, every day(Is this worship?). I couldn't play the guitar heavy, or stay sober without His Power. In fact, I would not even be alive through many years of flying and 900 unarmed combat Dustoff missions, or through my adventures free climbing, and years of using skilsaws and walking roof rafters and tall walls. He blessed me with unusual intelligence and the love of a great woman.
I believe, and feel it is right from Him, that if you are good, you will live forever(or at least trillions of years) in what we call Heaven, and if you are bad, you die when you die.
