    Don't get me wrong, I won't judge anybody on

    they're religion, no matter how I feel about it. I just don't understand how people don't see how ridiculous they sound arguing about it. We live, we die. Get over your controversy and live while you can.

    It will keep dividing people! I had once read a joke saying "A man and a god met somewhere and both exclaimed 'My Creator!'" People should understand now that they all are made up of cells, blood, muscles (ok too much of bio-talk), etc. But the main point is, nature has build us...

    I have no problem with religion!

    if believing in something helps you get through life a little better then more power to you. but when people start fighting over who's religion is better..... it's just silly. IMO its like kids fighting over who's imaginary friend is cooler.
