"In one year, more women will file for bankruptcy than graduate from college. Having a child is the single best predictor that a woman will end up in financial collapse. Single moms are more likely than any other group to file for bankruptcy – more likely than the elderly, more likely than divorced men, and more likely than people living in poor neighborhoods. Single moms who had been to college are actually 60% more likely to end up bankrupt than their less educated sisters."

I feel this gets lost so often. Forgivness isn't something that was made up or created by the Christian faith. Forgivness was around much longer than Christianity itself. You don't have to be associated with ANY religion to understand and use forgivness. Be a good person no matter what you choose, and forigve because it truly does heal.
Atheism, Religion, God is Imaginary, Christianity, Morality, Hell, Ricky Gervais. Forgiveness is probably the greatest virtue there is. But that's exactly what it is, a virtue. Not just a Christian virtue... No one owns being good. ...And that's where spirituality really lost its way. When it became a stick to beat people with: Do this or you'll burn in hell. ...You won't burn in hell, but be nice anyway.

What would you do if you were God? Which of these things has the God you worship done? If none of them, does he really deserve to be worshiped?

This is basically a hypothetical Bruce Almighty: if you had the powers of god, how would you change the world? End cancer? Move the tsunamis that obliterate Southeast Asia every year & divert some of that rain to the starving people of Africa? Send all the pedophiles & child rapists to hell? Replenish the trees & the oceans & repair the climate? If God is real, he has done none of that. Does he allow bad things to happen or does he create them? Or perhaps, he's not even real.

Ricky Gervais: "Suggesting I hate people with religion because I hate religion is like suggesting I hate people with cancer because I hate cancer".
I don't want anyone to hate religion, especially my own, because it's so much more than a religion. However, I don't want people to hate me because of the stigma of my beliefs, either. Get to know me. I think you'll see something different than what you've come to hate.

Atheism, Religion, God is Imaginary, Faith, God's Plan, Sam Harris. The only sense to make of tragedies is that terrible things can happen to perfectly innocent people. This understanding inspires compassion. Religious faith, on the other hand, erodes compassion. Thoughts like, "this might be all part of God's Plan,"... these ideas are not only stupid, they are extraordinarily callous. They are nothing more than a childish refusal to connect with the suffering of other human beings.

Questions for Bible Believers. If an omniscient, omnipotent, perfect being is the mastermind behind the Bible, then why does the book reflect only the culture, science... morals, and values of the era in which it was written?...
Questions raised about the bible by atheist and critical thinkers. We Christians MUST face these questions thoughtfully and be able to answer them logically if we are to have the slightest possibility to satisfy thinking minds. I came back to faith ONLY after I had addressed the cognitive dissonance created by these questions. If believers do not question their own beliefs to find answers, how are they to be able to answer non-believers' questions? How are they to be "a light" for ANYONE who thinks more critically than them? And if not Christians to answer these, then who?
Questions raised about the bible ~ Yes, WHY?

Be Nice, Anti Religion, Random Things, Atheism Religion, Godless Heathen, So True, Freethinkers Atheists, Science Reason Quotes, Vs Secularism
Not necessarily this but the whole idea that if you take God out of it then there is no reason for anything. "Be nice, just because" <---- yeah. It's called morals you horrible person
just teach your kids to be nice and not about religion until they are mature. Religon is not suited for children.
Atheism, Religion, God is Imaginary, Death, Heaven, Hell, Satan, The Devil, Torture. Fundamentalism: Be nice or you won't get to go to heaven when you die and be with your mommy and daddy for all eternity, and Satan will drag you down to the depths of hell and you'll burn forever in a pit of fire, and Satan's demons will poke you with pitchforks and laugh at you for being a foolish boy... Securlarism: Be nice.
"The cartoon about the difference between fundamentalism and secularism." Being nice does not get you into Heaven or keep you out of Hell. Whoever made this doesn't understand fundamentalism, because the most fundamental part of the Bible is that all of our good works, not even of ghandi or Mother Teresa, amount to scratch. There is no way to be good or to be nice to get to heaven. So be nice! Don't call names! And understand your topic!
Lol. Just be nice is a reason ! Don't scare your children into believing other wise.
Fundamentalism vs. Secularism Be nice because it's the right thing to do.
