not to mention god to moses, and according to the bible tons of other peoples. He spoke to hundrends in the bible. And the whole argument for god from mankind just simply doesnt make coherent since. Its foolish.

O yeah good point about the god moses one.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill

Thank you for saying that.

I could go ranty and ravey on atheists and say that they're sinful and are ungodly and are going to Hell and that they suck or whatever but I won't and don't because I have to maintain my dignity, it's against my religion to do so, and it won't make me any better than them. But the people who I choose to not attack for their beliefs are attacking me for mine. I understand why someone'd treat TheLordsServant that way (sorry, man, but you know, what goes around comes around) but I haven't gone been rude, snobby or preachy so why am I being attacked?

First off, why do members of one faith criticize members of another? How can we know for sure that our faith is right?

I think that every major religion in the world holds a piece of the truth. If they all started acting in the manner they say they should, then maybe we could find the real truth.

Personally...I believe in a higher entity. Right now that idea is with belief in God. However, I don't label myself 'Christian' because I don't agree with some of the Christian beliefs. I agree with the beliefs of the Baptist denomination the most, though. I was raised Baptist. My mother was raised Catholic but at 17 broke away, my dad was raised Baptist.

I don't believe in the traditional fire and brimstone hell, though. I believe that if you die and your not worthy of God and the light, your soul stays here on Earth.

When it comes to the Islam world's anger at the Pope's statements, here's what I have to say:

1) The Pope quoted the writing that stated the Islam is violent and evil.
2) The Islam responds how? By violence!

so..yea...

What do you believe and why do you believe it?

Well I voted Christian/Catholic but in reality I pretty much belive in God and all but I dont agree with the views of the church.. And I agree with you on the thought that all the major religions have some trueth in it. And by your soul staying on earth well that can be compared to Hell

I'm tough, rough, ready and able
To pick myself up from under this table
Don't stick no sign on me, I got no label
I'm a little sick, unsure, unsound and unstable

But I'm fighting my way back

lol, do u realize what this says?
-If i bash a fanatic's religion that makes me a fanatic? that makes no sense.
example
-radical islam is an immoral, decitful, and wrong practice. It goes against all common sense and should be destroyed.
(just bashed a religion) so am i a fanatic now?

-unless your like an 'anti-religion fenatic' that kills religious ppl, you aren't
an 'anti-religion fenatic'

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-If you have done someone that is 'wrong' (as in right and wrong), and used religion to justify it, u better be prepared for a good bashing of your religion by me every time you do it.

Lightbulb Re: Religion

well, i dont know about the other religions, but im catholic and ive been to a jewish church and a protestant church and they, for some reason, made fun of catholics. i thought that was weird, because at a catholic mass, we dont rip on other religions, we stick to our own and follow our beliefs, just sayin.

ok fine, it doesn't make me a fatatic but according to the quote

-I would be "no better than the fanatics"

Bash:To criticize (another) harshly, accusatorially, and threateningly

if i "bash" radical islam do you truth fully believe that that makes me just as bad if not worse (it says no better than) the radical fanatics?

-ppl who bash religion are fanatics?
-or that they aren't as bad as the other ppl because the other ppl are fanatics?
