i refuse to believe my life on "what if's" i'm not going to live my life according to something that "could" be true, that i'm very well capable of using reason to figure out that it isn't true. look, the fact is, that through studying religion, i've learned the origins of religion and by reading sociology, i know why and how religion came to be. its not that hard to figure out. it is all myth, designed to answer what couldn't be answered, and then transformed into a tool to control the faithful who believed it.
should i arrest everyone who owns a gun because they could be insane and maybe kill someon?
slippery slope, yes, but the point is, i don't live my life by choosing the lesser of two evils, just in hopes that when i die, i'll have my ass covered.
people want life to mean more than it does, but it doesn't. life is brutish, barbaric and fleeting. it's special and unique because of this, not in spite of it.
