you do, you put faith in things that there is no evidence for whatsoever, certainly nothing rock solid.

I have knowledge, I don’t need faith

I don’t use guesses, theories are not guesses, established theories ( that are close to irrefutable by any future evidence possible ) I do take for granted, but it isn’t faith, that requires ignorance, that is your domain, not mine.

just a question....
What would you do if you died
and found out it was true,or

I would be satisfied, I actually believe in certain things people would call supernatural. But it is just a belief, I wouldnt be upset if proved wrong.

But I am good either way :)

Lets say Ricardo's God, the one that will send anyone that has not worshiped him to everlasting torture.

No problem, I wouldnt worship that evil thing even if it was the only God. It makes you wonder why an all-powerful being so craves worship that it would torture anyone that doesnt.

Sounds like a terrorist to me, I wont worship that. So I would happily go to the other place knowing I made the right decision.

I am good either way, I dont know what happens after we die, any more than I know what happens to a cockroach after it dies ( no one seems to consider that )

But I dont have to make up stories or adopt others stories.

There are things that I believe, that science cannot prove and likely will never be able to. But I am not so attached to my beliefs to elevate them to the level of a faith, someone I put in front of actual knowledge, and excluding any knowledge that disagrees with my belief, that is a fools game.

Let me give you an example, I believe I have known my wife before. But it isnt a religion to me, it is just something I happen to believe, if I am wrong... no big deal. I dont devote my life to that belief, I dont worship that belief, it is just a puny belief that I cannot and probably never will be able to prove or know.

I just think so :)

I'm not a fanatic,I just try to be
a good person,and hope for
the best.I don't believe you go
to Hell if you are a non believer,
I think that people like murderers
don't get to enjoy their afterlife,
with their families,but that is just me.

Me too, Im a good guy, I dont hurt people, I help educate children, my wife tells me I am a great husband but I think she is nuts I dont know how she puts up with me.

I do understand why you feel the way you do, you want karma to be true, most religions are built upon karma

I dont believe it, I certainly dont worship the idea, it is something that I wish were true, but actually doubt it.

Still I have to live with myself, so I remain a decent person :)

The world is what we make it, I would rather make it a better place than a worse one.

Which is why I support people like the gay community, I dont belong to them, but support them as fellow American. I am for freedom.

It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is. If the--if he--if 'is' means is and never has been, that is not--that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement....Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true."

the rights outweighed,"my" problem

It hasn't really made any noise over that post. Some of them are dangerous kooks. Maybe deep down it wants to be caught.
