    i'm sure it's been done before but i like nothing more than beating a dead horse.

    i'm sure you atheists out there have gotten in the inevitable conversation about how you are going to hell, blah, blah, blah. some people don't understand that if you don't believe in something, you are not afraid of it. and then there are the tolerent religious types which let you believe what ever you want, they know not to even try. i give these people a gold star for not butting into my business.

    i tried to make an arguement once. i asked the person if they believed in either santa claus or the easter bunny, which they honestly answered "no". i tried to explain to them that my view of god was like their view of santa claus and the easter bunny. i didn't think i could have made a more crystal clear reference, but the person didn't get it. they couldn't grasp the fact that i didn't believe that a creature created the earth with two perfect people and that all of man kind sprang forth from these two perfect people. ninja please.

    anyway... what are some of your thoughts on the matter.

    if you dont believe in 'God' then there's no reason to believe in 'Hell".

    I like to think that everything is relative.
    What's a 'sin' for one culture may not be for another.
    Just like what passes as 'food' for one group may be called a 'pet' by another.
    It's all about the personal beliefs that society sets up for up.

    Even if YOU don't know what faith you are, Belief-O-Matic knows. Answer 20 questions about your concept of God, the afterlife, human nature, and more, and Belief-O-Matic will tell you what religion (if any) you practice...or ought to consider practicing.

    to tell you the truth, id like to be able to believe in god. its nice to think of death not being so......final.

    however, theres no way i can rationalize it to myself, its just completely unbelievable, to me at least.

  12. Believing in God does not mean believing in an afterlife, and vice versa.

    I believe in God, yet I have almost no doubt there is no afterlife whatsoever. Beer,

    a huge deal is "So what's this afterlife about anyways?'

    Obviously the catholics will think it's sitting on a cloud near God and the Jesus Potato.
    The visions of an afterlife are as different as the religions themselves.

    I like to think that I could come back as an older, wiser soul.

    for some reason i have met a lot of athiests that believe in the devil...but not in god?
    athiest can go as far as the big bang theory and then they get stuck...i like to tell athiests that "somebody had to stick thier finger in the pond to start the ripple."

    "somebody had to stick thier finger in the pond to start the ripple."

    What if the pond moved into the finger?
