it wasn't meant as an insult...
No problem. Also my previous statement was meant to say:
"...You believe in what you want and I promise I won't
be calling your Scriptures or your set of beliefs fairy tales..."
Religion is sort of like breathing, if you truly believe you need it to live than a discussion is sort of pointless, because we all need to breathe and if I need it than I am the one who feels it, not you. It might be irrational and totally illogical to you but not to me. I'm a very logical person by nature yet some things I can't rationalize.
I can't explain why or how or even if I really understand every word in the Bible, no way and I probably never will. However, I can tell you it helps me to become a better person, one who cares about others, one who tries to be understanding when understanding is very hard. Yes, I do draw an extreme sense of strength and hope from it, something I usually keep to myself. Those "fairy tales" are an integral part of my life and yes I'm glad I have that "air" to breathe. Just reading my own words I realize I must sound like a loco to many of you, but I'm not. Yes I'm biased here lol but am pretty sure I'm not crazy or brainwashed or ignorant.
So y'all go ahead and poke fun of Christians, show us all the fallacies, all the clues that we're missing. That's ok, I live an absolutely normal life, am not a fanatic or a religious nut. I know what I and my brothers and sisters believe and it makes us happy. You all stick to what makes you happy and I won't be calling your happiness "fairy tales".
I think that's a pretty fair deal, wouldn't you say?
