True. Religion and God are two entirely different things, for the most part.

One difference is that religion, in spite of its overall negative effect on society, actually exists.

Religion is for the weak who either cannot control their own destiny or simply cannot handle what life deals them without the support of a superior being making things right for them.
In ancient times it was used to control primitive cultures.

Problem is that their superior being does NOT make things right for them...statistics apply across the board....nothing special showing for ANY of the religious...

That isn't the intent, this is:

Rev. 21:

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

That's a senseless statement. Religion is a cult created by "real people", formed around "mythical" characters. Or are you claiming Zeus and Odin are real too?

Why spend so much time trying to disprove something you claim you are so sure doesn't exist?

Why spend so much time trying to prove something you claim is self-evident?

Nobody is trying to disprove anything. We'd just like some verifiable evidence instead of bullshit excuses.

I'm not trying to prove anything. I believe what I believe. If someone else doesn't believe it, that's their choice.

Yeah, don't overlook this part:

"for the former things are passed away."

Family, friends, etc will not be remembered...How is an "All-knowing God" not going to know something? How are the subjects of an "All-knowing God" going to know something that "He" doesn't?

Isaiah 65:17
King James Version

“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”

34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Yes, you do. I've seen your position hundreds of times within this forum. You seem as if you are trying to convince yourself.

Except for one thing. We uphold our beliefs. You just attempt to tear them down. We stand for something, you don't. If you won't stand for something than you will fall for anything. And the fall may be deep ....
