"Keep in mind that although Einstein spoke often of "God," he did not mean a personal deity and he was not theistic. "God" for him was synonymous with the nature of the universe. "God doesn't play dice with the…"

"@ Mark "Beliefs that cannot be disproved cannot disappoint you.  Fortunately, many religious claims have been disproved by science.  God lives in the gaps of science." I believe, in my own personal case, that religious belief did…"

"A follow up to SteveInCO on "complement" vs. "compliment." "Complement" means to complete or agree with. For example, a red wine complements a red meat entree. "Compliment" is a synonym for praise."

About Me:
I have traveled the world 32 countries and counting. I have seen religion at its best and at its worst and have through my experience and research decided that I fully heatedly believe that religion is holding back humanity. Without religion our world could be more peaceful and a much more logical world. I have many more in depth thoughts on the topics of theistic religion, but will come back and write more of them at a later date.

Hi everyone.

I am a grade 12 student in Red Deer Canada and i am unfortunate enough to be in a catholic high school. That means that taking religion class is mandatory for me.
