Your funny. Do you also believe in the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus?
The Jewish Religion can trace it roots back prior to the building of the Pyramids. Many believe Buddaism goes even further back. What is so funny, or better yet, what do you believe in? The big Accident theory?

What's funny is you actualy believe in a god in this day and age.I am an atheist, I belive in no gods. I don't know how the world was created because that answer has not been figured out yet. But at least I don't take the weak way out and say, "God created us and the world." just because man doesn't understand it yet.

In this day and age? The world creation is not the only thing you don't know! There is hope for you if you open your mind. Go bless!

I would be interested to see if these incidents are even documented. Yes, I know that the St. Cloud area can be racist. I am just having trouble picturing kids actually hauling bacon strips to school, and a bus driver doing this knowing full well the camera is on at all times. Also, seems like given the group we're talking about here, that we would have immediately had two separate news stories, and two separate lawsuits. Are we dealing with teenage drama, or is this actually true?

Well first of all, I have the faith people much smarter than me, taught me. Second, I share your mystery in that I am not sure exactly how the world/earth was created, but I choose to believe a higher being had a hand in it. As far as taking the "weak" way out, I would take issue with you. Taking the position that Christianity takes, has not been the popular position since the era of "Free Love" hippie age.
I don't understand how or why you feel the way you do, and I obviously disagree with with you.
It just seems strange to me, that if there is no God, or Buddah, or Mohammed,(sp) then someone pulled off the greatest con ever, and made it last over 21 centuries!!
