RE: God? and stuff....

Take a Christian, a Catholic, a Muslim, etc..

Strip them of their possessions and clothes, and dump them on a desert island.

After all the praying and "why me" stuff is over, they'll forget all their respective religious dogma and concentrate on being homo sapiens, i.e. survival.

Religion is, wrongly, a powerful government-backed social movement that has killed millions to appease thousands of "dieties" over the ages.

Think of it as an "idiot's guide" to spiritual growth.

Let's face it. Any adult that feels the need for modern religious story-telling is a spiritual toddler.

HERETICS!! The lot of you

NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!
Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise....
Our two weapons are fear and surprise... and ruthless efficiency....
Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...
and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope....
Our four... no...
Amongst our weapons... Amongst our weaponry...
are such elements as fear, surprise...
I'll come in again.

Just trying to keep silliness alive for the people who find Pauly Shore amusing.

Yeah,that Atkins diet is certainly religously followed by many and has probably killed a fair few.

It's a question of hedging your bets versus believes. If you totally don't believe and it happens that there is such a thing as after life then you're screwed. To make matters worse who’s religion is the right one? So the fear that is spawned from uncertainty and the clannish attitudes that is developed based on affiliation has simply made this world and each one’s lives a miserable experience. Personally I would much rather fight for placement as an alpha male to gain as many conquests as possible rather than fight for ideology, religion or some other propaganda. I recognized that I am a male that is prone to violence so I have picked my battles.
I guess if there is a God, then I am sure going to fry for all the hearts I broke and the feelings I trampled on. If there isn’t, then I think my conscience will die with me but I am sure that my legacy will linger a bit until some wounds will heal from amnesia.
i agree totally on the "hedging ur bets" thing....

the way my fanatic catholic grandma raised me here, when in the US, i'm basicly sure that if there's a such thing as hell, i'm gonna burn in it........

what a waste......

i'm gonna read more replys later, and get into this, but now, i'v gotta go......

So you both believe it to be wise to acknowledge and venerate an omnipotent entity of which there is no tangible evidence incase it notices your sceptisism and condemns you to an eternity in the burning fires of hell? You guys certainly scare easily and would appear to be both gullible and impressionable.

Let me see,come over to London,i can let you have this bridge at a very reasonable price.Or maybe you would be interested in these five magic beans.....[:o)]
