There's no "second chance" there's no "oh well i messed up this life, I'll have another shot later". You see a mountain and you accept its beauty for what it is, no for some god which you think might have made it.

This post was meant to be way more articulate that what it came out, but I'm late for uni.
You're right, I shouldn't have said sad. That was judgmental on my part. I don't think one religion is more "realistic" than another. And believing is just as "realistic" as not believing from my point of view, and years of study.

No, believing is definitely not as "realistic" as not believing. Not even close (depending on what you mean by "believing". I'm assuming you mean believing in Yahweh). There is no evidence to support God's existence (again, talking about Yahweh here), so where's the reason to believe? What makes this belief "realistic"?

No, it is pretty pathetic. If the entire reason you believe in God is because "it's nice", then you really need to reevaluate your entire belief system.

Since when is discussing beliefs the same thing as forcing one's beliefs on to others?

EDIT: Just found this picture, and I think it's pretty relevant to the disucssion

Have my own ides of religion. Mainstream organized religion does nothing but start dumbass wars and oppress people IMO.


And how can you seriously believe any of the ******* stories in the Bible if you're over the age of 12? Not trying to offend but seriously? I watched an episode of 30 days a couple weeks ago where an athiest person lives with a hardcore Christian family. To think that people still believe in that stuff when they're grown and have families ******* ASTOUNDS me. I just do not see how it's possible in today's world. I believe everyone has a right to their beliefs and i dont look down on others for believing another way, it just perplexes me how they can think that way

They're brainwashed from an early age and taught to not question their beliefs. It's not based on any logical thought.
