    wow, i should have titled this Atheism vs Christianity. lolz. about angels vs the imagination, i mean anyone can use terms from Psych 101 and diagnose Utena with schizophrenia, but many great people said they were guided by spirirts or angels, etc.
    even if it is the imagination, i see nothing wrong with it, unless they believe they can actually do something impossible(fly, stab they're heart and live), or try to hurt someone else.

    Re: Atheism, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, and Hinduism.

    Well, I think George Carlin says it best: Religion is bullsh*t
    Worshiping the sun seems like a rational idea to me too. (:

    No, seriously, I can't get myself to believe in god. First of all, why must it be christianity? I don't get why I should believe in that one while there are so many other religions to believe in. To believe in something which I do not completely agree with or understand seems illogical to me and is just something I would not do. By that, I do not mean the stories in the bible, for some of them might be real but over the thousands of years they got distorted, misinterpreted and exaggerated, as Scourge already said. I rather refer to homosexuality, contraception and such.
    Of course it's all faith. But there are so many things around christianity and so many controversies that I can't get myself to believe in this. Although it is a nice idea and it sure can be consoling from time to time. If it helps you to become a better person, there's no problem behind it.
    It is not like I completely deny the existence of some higher being (am I being agnostic? well, that's fine with me), it is just that I can't identify myself with that whole bible and repenting thing. Repenting is for me just something you do in order to feel better afterwards ... To just kick away that one sin, to salve one's conscience and say: "Perfect, everything is fine now, I don't have to care about it anymore. If it happens again, I'll just repent again."
    And from an impartial point of view Mao has a point in his saying that if someone is religious, he should understand that all those religions are not compatible with each other. (Whatever that person might do then.) They believe in different gods and deny the existence of other gods which do not fit in their persuasion. So how can they coexist? Although it is not possible to evaluate which one is right and which isn't ... No one can do this.
    You are now breathing manually. :P

    I agree. it don't hate religion, but i don't 100 % support it either because religion can mean anything.
    i think everyone should believe whatever they want, and not get into anyone's else's belief, because its none your business.
    -sounds harsh, but hey, my biggest deal with Christians is that a lot of them think they're above everyone, and they try to convert everyone. my biggest deal with atheists is that a lot think that anyone who believes in God is wasting they're time, and that everyone should be atheist. then they say, "God?! pfft! how can believe in those fairytales!". again, these are not all atheists or christians. i say, believe what the hell you want, and don't bug anyone else about it.

    Atheism: I have nothing against them. there is evidence that suggests god doesn't exist, and that is a personal choice. However, i want to ask most atheist's something: Is it a scientific conclusion that you don't believe in God, or is it a moral one. such as 'if god existed, why did he let the Holocaust happen?' or 'Why doesn't he cure cancer?' or 'If God existed then he's a merciless, unloving God, look at the world."
    my beef with this: I don't believe that that's God, thats mankind, he created us, but if he controlled everyone of our actions, that'd be boring. he lets us rule over what he created. Also, sometimes bad things have to happen in order for good things to happen. if your view is the second one, i find you very pessimistic.
    I would class myself as an Atheist.
    I've had no religion in my life so far and can't be botherd wasting time begging a random entity for things to happen. I just don't have the right mentality to have nothing, but Blind Faith to 'Guide' me. I trust myself and that's pretty much it! I don't care how ego-centric I sound, It's not exactly something I can change (it's like asking the world to stop spinning).
