"I don't know if this is a good comparison. As a former dairy farmer, I find cows quite useful and much more pleasant to be around than religious people. Also, their crap can be used for fertilizer. :)"

JC Samson replied to dragotron's discussion 'Can we agree that big 4 religions are based on the idea of the soul?'
"From what I've read, Buddhists don't really believe in a soul.  I don't really understand the difference, but it is not a soul.  I would say it is more like energy.  I believe Hindus believe in a soul."

JC Samson replied to Dan Ashton Lloyd's discussion ''Atheist' isn't my preference.'
"I agree with you.  I tell people I don't believe in the scriptures, so I have no basis to believe or disbelieve in a God.  But I caucus with the Atheists."

JC Samson replied to Erin's discussion 'How to deal gently with religious family members?'
"Erin, Great question. I look forward to reading the responses since I may need to navigate that same path with the in-laws. It feels comfortable for me to be Atheists and my wife Catholic since that is the way I grew up.  My Dad was an Atheist…"

"I do not know, maybe they are easily embarrased for being so issolated and tarnished? Actually I think an easily embarrased and tarnished tea pot might want to impersonate a JC Samson or other, but it is unclear if such issolated tea pots would know…"

"Ahh, but just because I or your wife are invisible to you does not mean we are invisible to other people.  You get message from me, which is proof that I, in some form, exist. Whether I or someone else is writing these messages does not matter,…"

James Cox replied to JC Samson's discussion 'Agnostics vs Atheists'
"How many invisible tea pots are there? If I do not know where to look, they might as well be invisible. I know where one tea pot is, on our wood stove, but it is not invisible, except at this moment.  JC Samson is invisible to me, but I…"

"Can you have a lack of evidence that something doesn't exist?  If there aren't invisible teapots between Mars and Earth, how can you prove that they aren't there? "

JC Samson replied to Erin's discussion 'Negative biases against Islamic people.'
"I am friends with several Muslims.  There is the rhetoric in all religions that I dearly disagree with, but it is in the way people practice their religion that is important.  Most Christians, Muslims and Jews I have known, know how to…"

"So this 'definition' works even in folks that can't yet harbor the belief, like new borns? Interesting..."

James Cox replied to JC Samson's discussion 'Agnostics vs Atheists'
"In the absence of viable evidence one way or another, what are you left with? A possible false certainty, or a waitful openness? Ok, I'm going to get heat for this one! "

Why you left your religion.
I research all major religions when I became tired of the problems in the RCC and that they were not going to change. My research showed that Jesus was not unique at all and the stories were copied from other religions.
