God figure is the chicken and organized religion is the egg. You can't have one without the other.

One of my biggest gripes with Christianity is this. According to the Bible: You can be the nicest person in the world your entire life, but if you choose not to accept Jesus, then you go to hell.

On the other hand, you can be the biggest jerk and loser your entire life, but as long as you accept Jesus, you get into heaven.

Splain that one Luzee.

There's a zero percent chance that heaven and hell are real. Zero. There's no chance. I can state as a fact I know this with 100% certainty. If you think there's even a one in a trillion chance that you go somewhere after you die then you are retarded. It's not feasible in any way. It's absolutely impossible. That's the end of the story. How you punch your ticket to go to some imaginary place is irrelevant. Even if you're alive you can't go to places that don't exist. But after you're dead you can't even go to Walmart because you don't exist anymore. But Walmart is real but that doesn't increase the chance of going there after you die. It does make the story doubly retarded that you go to a place that doesn't exist after you stop existing. But the chance of it being true is still no chance. Even though there are at least two reasons why it can't be true it's still only 100% untrue.

Of course you can. We just didn't do it well the first time round, and keep making that same mistake.

Religion by definition is the belief and worship of a controlling super-being, specifically a god or gods. So you really can't have a religion without a central figure for everyone to congregate around.

This goes for cults too. i.e., Jim Jones, David Koresh, Marshall Applewhite, etc.

Why, you didn't do anything to me, nor did you create me. Did you mean sympathy? Because that would be the optimum word for what I think you're getting at. I have a lot of that for you.

I'm assuming I'm on your blocked list since you've failed to respond to any of my pointed questions the last few pages.

As to the Bowie reference, he only turned to God after he found out he was terminally ill. As is often the case.

Like I said, live 98% of your life without God, and then in the final homestretch you have a change of heart and *poof* you automatically get a key to the Pearly Gates.

How ****ing convenient.
