It seems that you have quite the point to get across. You must be very persuasive and intelligent. I would probably agree with certain ideas that you present since I am somewhat anti-religious myself. I am, however, a very spiritual person and do believe in the soul very much. Talk to me, I'm very open-minded. Not like many people who claim to be open-minded but in reality are simply tolerating new ideas instead of actually considering the possibility of them. I have a question for you, what is your concept of truth. You seem to say many things are lies. I'm confused on what your truth is and why you believe that you are right and others are wrong. Aren't you just adding to that mentality that you are trying to stop by claiming to be right and labeling others as wrong? What if there is no overall truth. What if there is just similar but different truths that each individual holds. How much does thought and imagination effect this world? Architects and builders have to use their imagination when putting together buildings. Those can be measured in the physical. What about the things that can't be measured in the physical or even seen? Maybe imagination is the only truth. Why would you want to try to talk someone out of their beliefs? There are certain extremists that are willing to kill for their beliefs. What about the ones who accept other beliefs and co-exist peacefully because both sides are objective? One of your pics says "Believe in God? We can fix that!" No you can't. I'm guessing that you are attaching one definition to the word God. You can fix the belief of a giant gray bearded man that sits in the clouds, granted. God is just a word. The word was an idea that turned into sound when it penetrated the physical. What are ghosts? Yes, I know that I'm asking alot of questions. You should be flattered that I am this interested. With a page such as yours, a flood of questions should be expected. I will be expecting a response from you. I'd like to continue talking to you, but I have a feeling that you are as close-minded as many religious folks simply because you believe that you are right and I am wrong.
