Resorting to pity when others are having problems such as health problems is very different than suggesting that someone is lonely and that is why that person spends so much time on a forum.
You know that, and I know that, so let's not play games.
I spend hours each day on threads of these forums because I was once under the spell of religion and am now free of such mental debris.
For those who are still bogged down in religion, I share my story of leaving religion behind and how that load was lifted off of me.
If the ones in religion don't want to leave, they won't and that is their right ... but I will do all in my power to give them the concept that they need not fear being penalized if they do decide to leave and join those of us who feel whole and at peace without the blight of religion bugging our psyches day in and day out.
I am glad for you being at peace.
So many of us are caught between truth and half-truths, and sorting them out, and believing having done so, have then grasped some ultimate truth.
And some may achieve finding greater truths.
I think it is not so much religion that is the problem, but the shortness of humanity living up to the virtues of religion, which drives them to do desperate things.
