You know what? In a way, it would clear up a LOT of confusion.. The whole confusion of religion.. But then we wouldn't be here.. It's a catch 22. I agree in a way.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Biggest thing? I wish everybody had a STRONG dose of empathy. So many bad situations can be avoided by people taking a second to consider the ramifications of their actions.

I would get rid of organised religion. The church has commited some atrocious things throughout history. Beleif? Fine. Faith? Sure. Having to go to church every week, or more, or you go to hell? No thanks.

Why wouldn't we be here? Religion is the beleif and worship (?) of a god. If a god really exists, then wether people beleive or not isn't going to change that fact.

God created us. If there were no God, there'd be no religion, and there'd be no 'us'.

^ But ponyboy said no religion, not no God. God doesn't rely on religion to exits, as far as I know. It reminds me of Peter Pan, how everytime someone said "i don't beleive in fairies' one would die. Does God rely on the beleif of followers to exist?

No. We have created religion. We wouldn't have religion if [we didn't think/know] a God exists. ANY god for that matter.

You don't believe in hell?

^ I don't know what I beleive in, and I won't know for sure until I get there. I don't really think too much about a higher being, heaven, hell etc. I prefer to live each day as it comes and live life as if it's all I get.

Exactly. So even if there were no religion, there would still be a god, therefore we would still exist.

Just a question, do you beleive that there may be other gods than the one you worship? Or do you beleive that the God you worship is the one God, and other religions are based on blind faith?

1. People respect others beliefs.
2. On a smaller scale, that Florida had voted yes to gay marriage.
3. No one to ever go hungry.

All I can really think of right now.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it
