IMHO, Topix Christians are more likely to lie, be ignorant and delusional than non-believers.<quoted text>
Sadly I discovered that all all mankind has its share of liars, idiots and lunatics.
Seriously "G"...don't you think that it depends upon the perspective in which you view a person?
None of us are saints...
I understand why, too. They have their sole identity and hopes to evade punishment and death at stake. Non-believers have no such thing to lose.
Example. if a Christian realizes that their religion is full of errors and falsehoods they are going to be devastated so they remain in ignorance to protect their psyches.
However, if a non-believer realizes that the theory of relativity (for example) is full of errors and fallacies they won't be to upset.
The problem with the religious is that their entire mindset is that they can not be wrong... ever.
The non-believer (esp. agnostics) realize that they could very well be wrong.
I believe Jesus is the Final Atonement for all Mankind and that it is 'prophesied' in Leviticus 16. I could be wrong but it makes sense to me and I don't care if anyone else believes it. Upon further investigation of the early documents, I may change my opinion.
