    Re: Does Jesus talk to you?

    I don't believe in Jesus or God or anything that organized religion teaches us. It's totally bogus. I said "other" since people that don't exist cannot talk to me.

    If people want to talk about religion and all its bull****, I don't listen anymore. Not interested. And I am especially not interested in those who want to preach religion. STFU I don't preach to people about my atheism!

    lol...this is where I get the biggest kick from atheists. Do you have infinite knowledge? Are you aware of and know everything? I only ask because if you do those are "god-like" attributes. The point I'm making is it's okay to have your own belief or disbelief in something however since our own knowledge/understanding/opinions are limited by our finite minds imo to be skeptical about something may be the better tact to take rather then placing yourself in the position of "know-it-all" and declaring any other belief system as "bogus".

    Sorry, too many facts don't add up for religion to be anything but bogus. If I'm wrong about this, I honestly don't care. I am comfortable with my morals, myself, my beliefs, etc. I don't impose my lack of religious beliefs on anyone, and expect that those who are religious won't impose their religious beliefs on me.

    Why would you take my opinion so personally that you would feel the need to essentially insult me? That doesn't even make sense to me. But if it somehow makes you feel better, then be my guest. *eye roll*

    It wasn't meant as an insult. I thought it might be a way for you to look at those who do have a religious belief system from a different perspective rather then being so...reactive. I apologize if you were insulted.

    Last a heard the only people who claim to have full explanation of how the universe was made and the purpose behind it are the believers.
    The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.

    I didn't feel insulted--no worries. Again, this is not an area about which I am remotely sensitive. My family members (my mother, sisters, and brother) all are very, very religious people, so I am fully aware of those who have a religious belief system. I say nothing to any of them of how bogus I think their religious system is. It's pretty simple--I keep my mouth shut, and expect the same of them, which they do. I was sure my mother was going to harass me about not allowing my son to be baptized. She said she was heartbroken and then never has brought it up again. I am impressed.

    I'm glad. Kudos to your Mom too.

    It has oft been my experience that when people share their religious belief it is not done in a "Grace" like manner but in a condemning manner. Talk about a turn-off. But then again I too had issues with atheists who adamantly deny even the possibility that there may be a "God". I keep thinking our minds are finite. How can they be so sure. So I relegate their attitude to also a "faith" based belief system, not unlike the religious, since there is no way to prove either of their pov.

    But yet, you started out preaching it right here:

    Profession of non-faith plus your added editorial of what faith is (bogus).

    If she is anything like my mom she very well may have baptized your son herself when you weren't looking.
