Like I said before. Religion is faith based. I have faith (belief without proof) that these things are true. How do you know the sky is blue and the grass is green (sometimes). Did you do your own research and come up with that or did you just believe what you were told and accepted it as fact. How do we know the earth is round? Have you been to space and seen it for yourself? Some things in life you have faith that what you are being told is correct. Religion falls into that category. It is the same across the board. Muslims, India, Native Americans, Witchcraft, Jews, ect... No one has any Proof that they are actually praying to someone or something. They all have faith that is it true and lead there lives according to it. Just as I said in the first post, There is no proof that God exists, that would defeat the point. The bible is the most published book in the world and has been for many years, (Harry Potter a close 2ND.) I know we have missionaries over there and once one person finds God it is there mission to spread the world to others. We are working on it but some will never get it. Life is not fair.
I have faith in science.
Ever read an account of epic destruction of social and cultural fabric brought on by Christian missionaries in the South Pacific during and after 18th Century?
The Tahitians, for example, were the 'noble savages' the very idea of Adam and Eve. In that context, the missionaries became the serpent who introduced the forbidden fruit - the hateful patriarch, the judeo-christian god who ordered the tikis renounced, women forced to wear grass skirts and some ridiculous outfit in the name of Christian modesty.
This 'onward Christian soldiers' idea of proselytizing is no different than the islamic jihads. No one should be coerced or manipulated into believing in god they don't need to believe in.
They are happy just as they are, and where they go afterwards is their own business. Life is not fair for those who are 'converted'.
I, for one, will not be surrounded with 72 virgins in paradise or will ever see the gates of St. Peter, but I have faith that I will not end up in jahannum or Christian hell either.
