Christianity, Atheism and a touch of Paganism

Jan 8, 2013 Full story: News24

So, all this talk about religion and atheism piqued my interest and I have read a number of the articles written by fellow News24 readers... granted I didn't read ALL the comments, as that would have taken far too long.

Paganism is the only religion I will give my full respect to.

That article sounds innocent enough to me and I see Paganism as just more 'spiritual rhubarb', but to each his own.

Quote, "they were both given the choice to follow their own religious beliefs and have both chosen to worship the deity Online Gaming J" (Lol!)
And
"perhaps our time would be better spent on figuring out ways to sustain long term so that our children and their children can enjoy the beauty we have enjoyed, not the wasteland they will have if we continue as we are."
I identify and agreee with all of that, although I might be less pesimistic and anticipate we will need to learn to manage the climate as well as land and water use.

I also incline to the view that we should think about moving on from this planet, not just preserving or cherishing it. If we aren't going to explore the universe, what are we going to do? Argue about the ownership of the 'Holy Land' and if Mohammed's name can be satirised or not?

A good article. One that adds to the idea that we can coexist.

And yes EdSed I think that is exactly what the extreme christian and islamic communities would like to do. Now and forever.
