I didn't miss the point whatsoever, you just want to ignore the reality of it. Religion isn't needed to be good. If it isn't necessary for good deeds and knowing right and wrong, then what is its purpose. Some humans are flawed - but not all. Not everyone lies, steals, and cheats because they can get away with it. And they don't need religion to keep them from doing it.
I never said being good got one their celestial carrot, but "not being good" definitely gets it taken away. You can proclaim "belief in Jesus" all day long, but your bible states you are known by your works and are to be accountable for your actions. They won't get you into heaven, but they CERTAINLY can get you refused entry. Thus, you have to do good in order to get in - whether you want to admit it or not. Additionally, given the parable of the talents, simply "hiding your talents" is deemed as just as bad as wasting them on bad acts.
Thus, we see:
1. Religion isn't needed to know right from wrong.
2. Christians either believe because they want a prize or fear the fire - both of which are self-serving.
3. True selfless acts are those done without regard of whether it gets you some afterlife prize or keeps you from burning.
Caring for Your soul is not self-serving!
We've been there, We've done that, and now...
we KNOW it was Wrong, and don't ever want to do it again...

<quoted text>Great to hear you are now curious about how nature works. If you wish to learn about it, the best way is to read science books. Maybe watch the science channel or something.
It is clear you have not done so as of yet, so it stands to reason why you have so many gaps of knowledge in which you insert a god.
<pea growing season on the Mattahorn> while in the meantime, pick any subject, reword it slightly, shamelessly insert biased opinion, add some hyperlink tags for off-subject digression and call it <insert more anything here>stupedia.

Dude, your rusty spoke's showing lol.

And if the Christians are charged to heal the sick, your guys are doing a horrible job.
Yes, we do try to be like Jesus!
Do we fail? Yes!
Do we keep trying? Yes...
Unless... we we're not Christians in the first place!

Why would someone need a body in the spirit afterlife? Human bodies are evolved for earthly conditions.
But of course your story just sounds like some comic book fantasy tale as you go on an on with this.

Now if it makes you feel better to say God caused the conversion at the BB that's fine, unnecessary but if it makes life simpler for you.... Those that understand science tend to go with energy just converted some of it's energy into matter, happens every second without someone waving a magic wand... But there is no Creation... From the instant matter converted all we observe was set into motion and physical laws took over...
I just think something would have had to trigger the conversion

"What makes a Christian a Christian"
The ability to have faith that there are, burning bushes that talk, animals that have the gift of human language, property rights on women, no rights for gays, people who live in a whales stomach, no rights for non-believers, invisible critters that tempt and reward.
There's more of course but one word works.
Ignorance.
For you?... Yes!
Ignorance of God's existence!
We know He is real, and hope you find out too!

Yes, the child knows by the LOOK on the parent's face when they are NOT supposed to be doing something. Words may not even be necessary.
A parent's disapproval is obvious to the child.
To a child, playing in feces, putting the cat in the toliet or pointing a loaded gun at your face are all the same UNTIL THEY LEARN DIFFERENTLY.

According to you, you did lots of "wrong."
Too bad someone didn't raise you better.
Now you think you don't have any responsibility for what you've done.
Convenient religion much?
Wrong again!
I was taught right from wrong... I chose to do wrong until I learned to care!

A child with head turned away, and a steady calm voice saying
"What are you doing?" the child will hide, and lie about it!
Learning to "Care" about others is what keeps you right...

Why? Maybe something triggered the conversion some 16 billion years ago, maybe not.... But why would that trigger require an invisible God to trigger it and not a simple natural event that happens constantly.... We live on a scale so small and fast as to be no more than a flash of light... If you use a 12 hour clock as the time scale of the universe all of human existence started and will end in less than 1/10,000th of a second...

So you are saying you were not born with empathy ... there's a special word for people like that, and it's not a good word.

Yeah, but that's not what you're doing, is it? You are trying to get everyone to agree with you, using fear tactics (trying to) and bullying. The reason is because you don't want to admit your imaginary babysitter is really an extension of your own ego, and thus, when we deny it exists, you feel we are reminding you that you have no power. Your religion has taken all your own self worth away, so now you cannot tolerate being reminded of how powerless you are, thus, you cannot stand the atheists like me who remind you that you are powerless over everyone else.

In short, you are useless because you allowed religion to make you useless and now you have to force yourself to believe you are not useless.
