Is it just me, or does everybody on here sound like pathetic politicians, just trying to make themselves sound more believable putting others down than proving themselves? Has anybody heard of the phrase, "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar?," or has the complex design of human intelligence been reduced to stupidity?

It's just you.

People sometimes argue in the comments, but the general population on this website is great. Debates sometimes get ugly, such is life.

But I would say that complaining about the negative behavior of some of the members of this website, and in the same sentence insulting them, paints you either as a troll, or an example of the stupidity you write about.

As you said it yourself, "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar." You aren't exactly making a strong case for people to be nicer, with a one paragraph, two sentence post, in which you manage to insult the reader three times.

Your argument is poorly constructed so it is probably just you. Care to make another attempt at it ?

@ warofages

How exactly would you recommend we go about "proving ourselves", whatever that means?

How can the disbelief in gods fall?

You can catch even more flies with manure. What's your point?

ouchies, not very welcoming. i apologize if it sounded kind of harsh but goodness, i just wanted to know why you think what you think, and why you react how you react.

i mean, why not believe in God? or a god? What is there to look forward to after you die? Do you guys believe in an afterlife or is it just nothing?

@Warofages

You said, "i mean, why not believe in God? or a god? What is there to look forward to after you die? Do you guys believe in an afterlife or is it just nothing?"

By that line of reasoning, why not believe in a reset button on my credit card?  I mean, what do I have to look forward to after I reach my credit limit?  Does it mean unresolvable financial crisis?

The appeal of an idea does not attest to its veracity.  I don't believe in a god because the reality that I, and billions others, have observed does not behave in a capricious manner.  Statistically speaking, the weather does not bend to my will no matter how good I am and/or how badly I desire it to do so.

Why do you believe in a god?

Do you guys believe in an afterlife or is it just nothing?

Ah religion. A really complicated and illogical way of saying "I'm scared of death."

"Do you guys believe in an afterlife or is it just nothing?"
When I die, I'll continue on to my next life. This cycle will repeat until eventually the world will be replaced by a large game over screen, and the player will need to insert more quarters.
