Eternal life would be no gift, but one of the most horrific tortures to be laid on a living being, Sure the first million years might be fun, but what about the million after that and tbe billion after that, and the TRILLION after THAT. And you STILL have eternity LEFT! This is NEVER going to end. There will never be an end in sight.

Eternal life is just a poorly thought out fantasy that mortals have gotten greedy. Eternal life would be a CURSE. Eternal life would rob you of purpose. I strongly urge you to except your mortality. Look at yourself in the mirror. For BILLIONS of years those particles have gathered to create YOU.

I am such a hardcore Atheist, that not only do I NOT believe in god. I also, do not believe that YOU religious types believe in god. That's right, I think religious people are full of sh*t and they're lying to everyone, including themselves.

Sorry, no rational human is buying into your little fantasy.

HOW TO PREVENT YOUR CHILD FROM BECOMING AN ATHEIST...

Do not educate them, or expose them to critical thinking, logic or science.

Lie to them constantly about how the world works. Feed them a steady diet of mumbo jumbo dressed up like real knowledge - the jumbo jet in the whirlwind for example - and pretend that it is deep wisdom.

Make them loathe their own natural bodies and functions. Convince them they are small and weak and worthless and need redemption. Tell them everything enjoyable is grievously wrong to even think about, and that their only fun should be in grovelling to an invisible friend.

Ensure that they resent anyone who is not like them in every way - skin color, nationality, political opinion but especially creed. Make such people out to be evil and vile and give them - impotent minorities all - the fictional power to somehow oppress and persecute the vast majority who do think like you.

Teach them to laugh at and dismiss out of hand any faith but their own. Early - early mind you - make sure they are taught the difference between superstitious deadly error - that one raving lunatic in the desert told the truth about a vicious god who killed people, and divine eternal truth - that another raving lunatic in the desert told the truth about a vicious god who killed people.

Instruct them with all severity and import to never question for themselves - to never think for themselves - to never live for themselves - but to seek answers only in one - just one - particular set of semi-literate bronze age folk tales.

Above all - and this cannot be overemphasized - make sure they cannot spell, use correct grammar, or understand basic English words.

That should do the trick.

First I'm not a liberal or a conservative, but you religious right-wingers are the worst. You don't want the govt to tell you what to do, but you want the Church to tell others what to do. you're pro-life, but pro-death penalty. You dont want contraceptives, but no abortions either. You want unfit parents to have children they cant afford, yet want to cut social funds to help these people, then you want to punish the people who knew they couldnt raise a baby for not raising a baby. You are a confused and scary group."

Religion is a personal choice, but to mix emotions concerning faith, with logic involving politics (though I recognize it is not so simple), will never makes sense to me.

Dear Abby: Since God alone can create life, and since God alone knows what tomorrow brings, he alone is truly qualified as a family planner.

How did a smart girl like you ever get taken in by Planned Parenthood?

A Longtime Admirer

Dear Admirer: I read the figures on the population explosion and saw pictures of thousands of starving children born of parents who did not want them and could not feed them. I then concluded that a just God could not possibly have given life to innocent children only to doom them to death by starvation in their infancy.

Here is something I do not understand. Prior to the election, religious people were all praying to God to intervene in the election so that His choice would be President. Now that the person they believe to be the wrong choice was elected, they are freaking out like itÂ’s the end of the world.

Here is my point: if your God is all powerful, then then person who is President is GOD's choice. So either stop complaining about it, or stop claiming your God is in control.

The church says it's wrong. If it's a public school there is separation of church and state and it's illegal to prohibit that.
Well they took God out of schools so whose rule is it??? It's not a private biblical school...

Not that you'll listen, but it's not "bullying" to enforce a standing rule that prom is for diverse gender couples. It's not bullying when a hospital will not let me see a patient outside of visiting hours because I'm not clergy or medical personnel. It's not bullying when a store with a no shirt, no shoes no service policy posted won't let me into the store with no shirt and/or no shoes on. It's not bullying when an organization established for the purpose of providing scholarships to African-Americans, Latinos, or women will not allow me to apply for one as a white male. I could go on. Everytime someone wants an exception to established policy made for himself, and does not get an affirmative answer, he cries that he's being bullied, and that' just not so.
When they divide church and God and prayer from schools... That's when this rule became ineffective ..,,like being a hypocrite....

It's funny how conservatives claim they want the government out of private citizens' lives and then in the same breath scream for the government to get involved in the lives of gay men and women and oppose their rights.
