That is fine and good. You are actually entitled to an opinion.

Why must you have "faith" in something that cannot been seen. I have faith in my partner because she is real, that is I can see her and get answers to what ever questions I may ask.

These people who believe god is real when they have never seen him must surely be children at heart because I used to believe in Santa when I was 5, but I also found out he doesn't exist either.

So in closing, I would just like to say, if I can't see it, smell it, taste it, hear it, feel it, then quite obviously it doesn't exist.

And no offence to the Americans on here, I have a question. Why are there so many religious nutjobs over there? They take it to a new level of insanity.

What the hell does reading the bible have to do with believing or disbelieving in God? It's just a bunch of fables written thousands of years ago, often with conflicting viewpoints, and occasionally including an entity known as God. I don't need to read about Job to come to the conclusion that the belief that a man-like entity created the human race as well as the rest of the universe is rooted in fear, arrogance, and superstition. And, in any case, by that logic nobody could have an opinion on any religious matters if they haven't read The Bible, The Quran, the Bhagavad Gita, The Analects, the Tao-te-ching, etc...

In an ideal world that's how it should be. Someone shouldn't have an opinion on a band without listening to it, the same should go for having an opinion on anything without reading or listening or looking at the right information.

You cannot imagine all the nut jobs there are in America.
So far there are:
scientologists
the spongebob square pants worshippers (and these people actually worship like a god and squidward is the devil)
The minority of black jews that think they're being opressed by white jews.
The group of muslim chics dressed in thier birthday suits protesting against the way women are portrayed in music videos
Jehovah's witnesses (which we already mentioned)
the homeless guy that started a new religion outside the train station and his church is actually a very tattered tent. Something about Jesus Salvation

The list goes on. And it seems the bigger the city the more religions there are or rather the more religious whakc jobs there are.

If god is real he's probably looking down on us and laughing his head off. I can see it now.
Scientology though?
At least the Spongebob worshippers can still take medication. Scientologists need medication. Badly

Its kinda depressing

Think I'll stay here, thanks. Religious zealots scare the f*ck out of me. Always in your face.

Even if you escape the religious zealots, you've still gotta put up with your own crazies.
They're everywhere, whether they're religious or not
