    The Path of Enlightenment

    The path of enlightenment comes from within. Proof of god cannot be found in a book or a church. It does not come from wood and stone. "God" can only be found in the choices that we make. Do not look for god in the sick and the dying - they are waiting for YOU to help...

    Why? A believe is just idea

    and perspective. Strong fate or not. Why do we always fight over something that cannot be proven at any point of time?

    such things? I believe in Allah but I do not force my beliefs onto other people, I am open minded to other people's opinions. If there is a god. I am sure god would not want us arguing and spreading hatred towards each other.If there is not a god, then we shouldn't be wasting...

    One Dysfunctional Church

    I grew up in a church that was, to put it mildly, dysfunctional.  It was started in the 1700's, and in the 1800's one faction of the church split off from the main body over some vague point of doctrine.  You would expect that the "new" congregation would go...

    Especially the religion/atheist thing.

    I mean seriously, what kind of morons try to have an argument to try and prove/disprove the existence of something whose fundamental attribute is its transcendence of the physical world? Not to mention, these clowns are generally the minority group that takes a particular aspect...

    To Each Their Own

    I have just read a story written by a Christian that has been posted in a group obviously designed by atheists. While I don't actually support this particular group I am disappointed to see that an EP member has deliberately posted in a group he is quite clearly opposed to which...

    You believe what you believe

    and I will believe what I believe. We can discuss and tell each other what we believe but since there is no actual full on proof of one specific religion being "correct" there is no point to argue!

    Christianity And Hypocrisy

    I am a Christian. I have always been a loving, joyful person. Loving people in spite of their flaws and choices. Because I too have flaws. I too make choices others do not like. I do not want others to walk around looking down at me in a metaphoric way just because they have...

    The only way to win this one, is not to play to win. Set an example instead : )

    Arguing over matters of faith, and religion, simply represents an amplified version, of arguing over just about anything individual or deeply personal, which is associated with any deeply held belief. Trying to argue about such things with any intelligent person, is akin to...

    Pointless

    I don't see a point. As long

    as a person is doing no harm, let them have their own beliefs. You can't blame everyone in a religion for the acts of others. That's like blaming all white, black, or asian people for the actions of others in their race. Whether you're religious, Atheist, Agnostic, or just...

    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.

    I heard the words of one priest: "It doesn't matter if someone is Christian, Catholic, Buddhist, Jehova's wittness, Hindu or other. It does matter if they are good people" And I agree with him. The most important is what kind of person we are; if we are good or evil. You can...

    Religion... Well Now, That's Actually Part of the Problem

    Religion is just a set of Covenants, Standards or Rules set up by a group of people who feel basically the same way, about a deity, concept, a person, place or thing.  Most every society past and present has had a religion or something like it. The...
