    Not a believer of God either, I have a thought that if I was wrong and based on that book that I would be tormented in hell for all eternity for not believing what I cannot see, than you know, I really don't want any part of a god like that anyway.

    Maybe Pete can toss me down some Cloud Marshmellows for me to roast while I give god the finger.

    Nope.
    Since I don't believe in god the Bible is pretty much a book in which some people tell other people how to LIVE.
    Agreed with all of this. Laws and social norms are much better tools for telling other people how to LIVE.

    On a side note, I love how Jesus would be a democrat (free healthcare for those even with pre-existing conditions, render unto caesar what is caesar's, turn the other cheek, give to charity, etc), but the fundamental idea of religion (a business where you sell nothing, pay no taxes & have most your help working solely on a voluntary basis for no money) is just too republican for the elephants to pass up claiming as their own

    So...the Bible and Obama aren't really that different?

    I don't know why you didn't think of that either. Seems so many look at him as a god and all.

    There are no gods.


    But, you're missing the point.

    Go figure, eh?

    Pete is ranting about someone wanting to control his LIFE all the while wasting his LIFE listening to the writings of a long dead group of people who wrote about ways to control peoples LIVES.

    yes, i was blinded by the irony of a non-believer telling someone else how they are wasting their LIFE. That might sting....i think this is the point where I end this.

    Does anyone else think that those stains surrounding Jesus on the Shroud of Turin resemble diseased vagina's?

    Reality is one big Rorschach test and...well...that's an interesting perception.

    The realization that you should enjoy your life and that's it's not just a test to see if you get into some other life later made you want to 'end this'? I hope by 'this' you're not referring to your life. I mean, people talk about social Darwinism in reference to things like welfare all the time. Perhaps religion is the same way - so many people kept alive and functioning by the carrot dangling at the end of the stick. Without that carrot...

    let's keep the depression rolling

    Curious for Pete's take on the Incognito/Martin situation
