I don't think even Max is THAT old!
One of the things I'm really glad about is that if atheism is right, we won't both get the answer one day. You see, if I am right, you will die one day fully believing that you are going to be with your god, and you will never have to face the possibility that you might have wasted your life with religion. You see I don't want you, or any theist punished with such a revelation. I'm glad that isn't going to happen.
Why am I glad? Because I'm not unkind, and I'd rather have you spared that sort of regret. And of course in my mind, I believe that when we die, that's it. Just like I was before I was born. The same completely painless nothing.
My way of believing is a lot kinder than yours, wouldn't you say? You want us to feel remorse, and possibly punishment for not believing the things you believe, but I want you not to have any Grand Finale of sadness. I certainly wouldn't want to wish eternal pain and misery on you either. So I'm quite relieved that as far as I believe, you will not have to face up to anything. For me, it is sad enough that you are living in what I would call a delusion. I wish nothing on you that might make that any worse than it already is.
you r so kind thank u 4 your kindness,I just think if God is then that God who could create the cosmos would know a lot more than u about kindness,you, you are your own god and I was a passionate atheist until I met my creator 19yrs ago
And after that, Steven, did you ever get back on your meds?
BTW, how was old Zeus? Been a long time since he and I had a chat --
My shades? They're a Timbuk 3 reference ("The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades").
what urges u to want to tell @3 billion people all their beliefs,hopes,security in an afterlife is wrong,why does it bother u ?
Because if they realized that this is the only life we get, they might pull their heads out of their collective asses and work to make the world a better place instead of trying to speed us along towards their desired apocalypse.
One way it bothers me Steven, is that some people, with those deluded beliefs, make the laws in this country, and are trying to make the US into a Christian theocracy (get a dictionary and look it up!), and that will affect everyone. Even now, some students in some states are being taught that evolution is wrong, and that the earth and everything in it was created in six days - do you really want children learning that? They live in a world filled with intelligent people who know better.
Speaking or religion and politics, old, crazy Rick ("Oops!") Perry, Governor of Texas, has filed suit against the Federal Government - he wants to force the Fed to release the share of the gold stored in Fort Knox, that belongs to Texas, to be returned to the state. It's fun to watch for what Crazy Rick will do next
Ahhhh explains a lot . If it quacks like a duck chances are it is a duck. He sounded religious.
