Then tell me why the suicide rate is so hight in your developed countries?why the percentage of crimes is so hight?
The differences between developed and developing countries is quite interesting. Check out http://ucatlas.ucsc.edu/cause.php to see causes of death in developed vs developing countries.

You'll notice that those in developed countries die from things like heart disease, cancer, car accidents and, yes, suicide. In developing countries, people are much more likely to die from infectious diseases (HIV/AIDS, malaria, measles) or in childhood.

There is a problem in developed countries with suicide. Everything from geography to town planning has been blamed. However, it is not an epidemic. To put things in context, if you live in a developing country, you are more than 3.5 times likely to die from diarrhoea than suicide.

Well, no, actually this one case where Charles is right. Agnosticism would be a more faithless point of view. Atheism simply is a faith where one is convinced that no external intelligence is involved in the activities of the universe. It can't really be proven therefore it IS faith.

I get what you mean though. Charles is simply incapable of facing the universe on terms that he can't anthropomorphize.

Hardly.

it is the realization that the idea of a creator doesn't even come into play until there is at least some shred of evidence of such.

See? A lack of any belief. relying on the facts in front of us.

Oh, by the way...i love all your quotes, anonymous. you must be very, very old. do you chalk it up to good living?

All religions. This is because educated people actually read the holy books.

In *1686, British scientist Robert Plot reported on fairy rings in his The Natural History of Stafford-Shire, and said they could be caused by airflows from the sky.

A *1880 letter to the editor of Nature by amateur scientist John Rand Capron, describes how a recent storm had created several circles of flattened crops in a field.

"Twenty-six countries reported approximately 10,000 crop circles in the last third of the 20th century..."

So how many of the 10,000 are actually known to be man made?

why did they start then? cultural phenomenon annot be caused by aliens.

You seriously were a crop circle believer, weren't you? that's gotta burn, huh?

you should apply the lesson learned in believing in something that cannot be proven, and has been proven to be a lie and put that to any spiritual, or religious thoughts you were indoctrinated into.

it is not a nonbelief. it is that it isn't even a wuestion until some evidence for the myth exists.

so how do you feel about kandadogon's posts? i don't see you defending his views of the same god you worship. why is that?

your religious cult isn't inherently divisive, is it? is it?

c'mon, this should be really funny...
