I'm atheist; I do not believe in god, heaven, hell, or anything in between. I was born Roman Catholic, but failed to keep it. I think that the bible was written by some people, who worked very hard at getting to the good qualities in a person, but missed some along the way. These people work well as fictional characters to teach young children lessons, but other than that, I think it's wrong because some of it is just plain mean.
It's probably not a good idea to be chewing on a toothpick if you're talking to the president, because what if he tells a funny joke and you laugh so hard you spit the toothpick out and it hits him in the face or something.
