Not my perfect sentiment as I don't know the sayings of Buddha, nor do I know how much i "believe" in humanity. But I *DO* believe in compassion, empathy, and love!

Religious "morals" are shit. Thank goodness that we have a bunch of lip service, armchair, religious people who never read their corrupt instruction manual. Because if we did we would live in a violent hateful murderous society full of fear, religious oppression and barbaric delusion.

I believe in the Scientific Method because even things like morals, at least on my belief, are a process of the brain and the brain is part of the human anatomy.

Ah, but it was dark not because they believed in God, but because they didn't see the difference between allowing the church to rule over thier lives and allowing a God of love to take up residence in their hearts.

I love Ricky...a bit too snarky for me sometimes, because I think people should believe in a god if that's what they need to believe in, but I've thought this very same thing all throughout my adult life.

Often times if an individual is questioning their religion, but is surrounded by religious folks they will most likely find answers to their doubts within the religion. If the individual does not have a religious support group they will most likely not stay in the religion. It made me think of an alcoholic how if hey keep having the same friends that encourage their behavior they will continue to do it, but if they leave those friends they will most likely stay sober.

Atheists are expected to live in silence while believers are free to proudly express their beliefs.
