This was a comment on the old site that i feel needed to be addressed. Being the considerate individual i am i decided to make a day of it. Look for my response tomorrow…
To believe or not to believe….
First of all, I believe that people who do not believe in something greater than themselves are in the end, lonely, and selfish people.
Let me explain:
I believe that religion is an abomination of spirit. People who belong to a gang, mob or what they call church are no different than any other gang/mob/church. They ask you to “do” things to belong, give them money and if you don’t, you are threatened by the gang/mob/church to believe you will “burn in hell”.
I am not a Christian;
Christians are small thinking, prejudice people. You must believe what they believe and be like them(small thinking) and if you are not like the gang/mob/church, you are not part of the group (prejudice). And to think that they get tax exemptions!
A Power greater then self;
With that said, why do I think those that do not believe in a power greater than self to be lonely and selfish? Because we are human. Humans do not live in a vacuum. We need each other and we are connected by some sort of energy or power or spirit or what ever you want to call it. Believing that you can do it alone will make one very lonely because you can not do anything alone. Furthermore, believing that you are doing it alone makes you selfish because you are not doing anything in a vacuum.
So call yourself an atheist if you do not believe in God, but do not deny that there is some connection on some level that you can not explain, see or prove and that is a belief. This connection is an energy, some call it spirit, but non-the-less it is there. It is there when you are “alone” walking in the woods,or at the beach or in your room. What a comfort to know you are not alone, that you are connected to other humans by this energy. I feel sorry for those that really think they are doing it themselves, what a lonely life you must live.

Religion Myth of the Day
Following the biblical flood, man was united, sharing a unified language and culture. Man decided to build a tower to reach the heavens. God saw this and decided to scatter man upon the earth and confound their speech (what a dick). Thats how the bible explains the origins of all the languages on Earth.
