Just pissing in the wind!
It seems that most atheists are atheists because of bad experiences. It seems less to do with rationality or reason, which I think is a cop-out. I read most of what the leaders of this here outfit wrote, and it seems they are just sick of religion in general. A lot has to do with Judgemental Chrisitans. Having spent half my life in Chicago and half in South Carolina, I see a huge difference in Christian mentality. Also, it isn't too easy being Catholic in South Carolina either, so on that note I understand where you all are coming from. Having said that, the difference is I Continue to believe in God because I have done alot of searches for meaning in life, and to me, this is the only thing that makes sense. I could have gone the other way like you guys did, but I found reason to keep my faith. I think a belief in God rests on a razors edge. But trust in general rests on a razors edge. We are fragile as humans and our emotions and beliefs reflect that. I can come across as a pompus asshole, so I apologize for that in light of my previous posts.
