Of course Han shot first.

To be fair to God, his book was ghost-written.

but the ghost writer was supposed to be under divine guidance.

but I think they only had dial-up back then, so the connection was probably poor and some of the data might have been corrupted...

Good point, but are we inherently good or are we constantly receiving negative reinforcement to keep us in line? Those who risk their lives are far fewer than those who would use others as human shields, by my observation at least.
We just live in nice neighborhoods.
No, I don't live in any one neighborhood. I have traveled the entirety of the continental, mainland, USA, that's all but the islands and Alaska. I have seen people go out of their way to not only help me, but others, just for the sake of helping. The news only shows the worst stories, because good news doesn't sell papers or periodicals of any sort ... good news also doesn't get reported that often because most times people don't do it for the publicity. Humanity is on the right track, as long as we do not allow religious nonsense to continue to hold us back. In the US the only problem we truly face that can actually be solved is to educate people, and religious doctrine doesn't like learning, it can't stand intelligence, because when you are learned, you question everything, and under any scrutiny religious nonsense collapses.

It's a cult.
No it's not.
Yes it is.
No it's not.

There's a God.
No there's not.
Yes there is.
No there's not.

Science
Bible
Science

Can we simply conclude that for those who believe, let them believe. Surely there can exist Science and Religion. Certainly some aspects pose contradictions, but neither have been perfected, thus to some point flawed.

An excellent example is Fritjof Capra's believe (even though he was a theorist) that there was more to it than what we understood; a point when religion (or spiritualism) and science met. Or (my hero) Lenderman's God Particle, where some speculate (much to Lederman's disapproval of course) that the Higg's boson may have been created by a higher force as a deterrent. I'm not trying to start an argument or take sides, only to try to find some neutral ground.

God is dope. It's why he created dopa-mine in your brain. This chemical in the brain has important roles: behavior, cognition, voluntary movement, punishment and reward, attention and learning, mood.

If you let God play a role with dopamine, you will experience a natural high. That's what you call heaven.

Correct, as a rule.
Unlike some nanogodbots I could mention.
I see you no longer use that Merida avatar that you plagiarised?
As IF all of the avatars you have used were your own, originally created art?!!! Puhleeze, skank.

If you add God to the effects of dopamine you will be healthy. Did you know that alcohol withdrawal can cause schizophrenia symptoms to occur? If one experiences these chemical imbalance, it's best to be aware with God in mind or you will not understand negative effects in your brain.

Well, you're STILL being stupid.
Somebody said that god created water before he created light.
Light comes from stars.
Oxygen comes from stars.
Therefore, stars, which create light, were necessary before water could possibly form.
Why are you always so freaking angry?
Nobody here raped you.
There was light before there were stars.

Fk off, pillow biter.

if adding god to your life kept you healthy it would be used to make huge bucks by people around the world.(along with the fact that people of faith are no more healthy than others...)
