Christians wish for peace on Earth and goodwill toward men, too.<quoted text>
Especially when I wish for peace for "everyone" if in turn there just should happen to be an afterlife.
It takes away that "SPECIAL" self-centered dogma from religion. And without people believing that the gods find them irresistible and perceive others as putrid ... what profit is their in staying IN such a group-setting of religion?
No emotional profit whatsoever.
And Islam is a religion of peace -- maybe that's why Iran is pursuing its nuclear programs solely for "peaceful purposes".
I take your claims just as seriously.
