Religion is really just a coping system for the weak. People that just can`t stand thinking that there is nothing after death, or are afraid of death. Also, it helps answer the unknown. A long time ago when there was a whole lot of unknown, it made a lot more sense to just say "God did it!!"

uncontrollable feelings of anger towards the parents putting delusions in this poor kids head that his brother is living in the clouds, yes.

Religion isn`t evil. It`s people that use religion for evil purposes. Much like a gun is neither evil nor good, it`s the people that use the item with ill intentions that create the evil. One example I`ll give is the countless hours the Knights of Colubus Council I belong to have given to raise money for charity. We support all kinds of groups that help and defend the defenseless, like Special Olympics, More to the point, since none of us knows what happens to that which animates us after we die, then what`s the downside to believing in life after death? Why not live a good life in preparation for that? Don`t condemn the the entirety of religion based on the poor decisions of a small percentage.

The bottom line here is...it is the thought that counts. Did this child truely believe the balloon would reach heaven, probably not!!! This was a way of expressing her feelings, if any one of you had a heart or were ever a parent, you`d realize this has nothing to with religion, this child is remembering her brother on his birthday.
BTW if you are truely religious you would not be judging others!!! Get off your stupid high horse!!!!

I`ve found these things when out in the deep woods hunting. It`s sad that heaven isn`t a real place sometimes.

@Colors,

You`re still wrong. In my quest to understand religion, I went to many different churches. I was baptized twice, once as a Catholic and once as a protestant. When I had learned everything there was to learn and understand about Christianity, I began to learn about other religions. Trust me when I say, I know at least as much as you do about Christianity and probably quite a bit more.

The brainwashing you underwent as a child, has fogged your view of things. With some work, you could be freed of the shackles of religion. However, if you continue to ignore facts and truth and blindly accept the fairy tales, then you are lost and doomed to perpetuate the hatred and evil that is religion.

To assume all branches of Christianity works as the one you were taught (and badly taught at that) is close minded. I won`t engage in a religious battle because it seems you have already made up your mind on what you believe in, and it won`t be worth my time to try and convey an argument you won`t look at. I personally don`t think the bible can be taken word for word at face value; but you have to look at it as a moral teaching. I think that`s why the central way of getting into heaven is to accept Jesus as your savior, and God as the only God. If you wish to poke fun at religion, I won`t stop you...I can`t stop you. But to be as ignorant and harsh as you sheds bad light on everyone who shares your belief.

I`ve got some bad news for you, sunshine. I was a practicing Catholic though my formative years. It was the idiocy and craziness of it all that made me question it. We were told that, if we even tried to question it, we would burn in Hell forever. Once I got the guts to really look at it, it fell apart like a crappy house of cards.

So, it not an "ignorance of something I`ve never experienced" but more so an understanding and evolving of intellect that YOU never partook of. But don`t worry, if you have the bravery, you too can escape the lunacy and not look like a nutbar asking a magical sky wizard for wishes.

@sbeelz- the post states that someone found it in their back yard. So...ostensibly, no.

I just have to question how old this person is. The age at which a balloon to heaven seems like a solid idea, and the maturity of word choice here seem at odds to me.

Oh well. I guess it doesn`t matter anyway.

What if the balloon gets in the way of an aeroplane and causes it to crash?
Also, there`s no stamp on it. :( Can`t send it.

@typoid- most likely, the girl who did this posted it on Facebook to share with friends and family. Fcuk people around here are cynical. Who gives a sh*t that she didn`t precisely set her privacy settings to make the rest of the internet didn`t see it? Who gives a sh*t if it gives her some solace to believe that her dead brother is up in heaven?

@patchgrabber, it is possible that the picture was taken by someone who found the balloon. Knowing this is an almost certainty, the girl that let it go should have known not to do it. Maybe she thought God would actually take it up to Heaven so there was no chance of it being found?

I laugh at the folks here who are upset about the mean Atheists picking on the poor girl. Do you really believe that the balloons will float up to heaven and the angels will deliver the message? No? Then you can see why we are picking on her.

Secondly, the "leave her alone to believe what she believes in" argument is crap. If she wanted to do the balloon thing on her own, go for it. I`d back that. A nice way for her to grieve and feel better. But if you post it on the Internet for all to see, then you open the ridiculousness of it all up for ridicule.

In other words, don`t show your boobs and then complain because everyone is looking at your boobs.

@typoid: I think the person who posted the pic just found the balloon after it had popped and fallen back to the ground; I don`t think the person is the one who sent it up.

I dont`t get it. Why in earth do people need so much attention. I mean. Come on, it`s a nice thing to do sth. like that with the balloon. But the last thing I would think of in such a situation is to take a picture of me and my idea and to post it on the internet to show to world how great and emotional I am. I hate those attention whores...

If this is our future, we are doomed :-)

I can`t even handle when my favorite character in a tv show dies. I can understand why someone would choose to pretend there`s an afterlife when it`s your sibling that has died.

For some reason this is how IAB is
we hate, fight, troll, swear, mock the weak, the fat, etc.. jeebus form us into an army, be rather more ruthless than the SS,
there`s again we would probably kill each other :->

"Good lord, do you run around and tell little kids that Santa... don`t exist either?"
@DFWBrysco: A man got arrested for that in Canada last year. Srsly. At the "Santa Claus Parade"! A fist-fight broke out.

"Celebrate the death of a loved one by wasting precious helium? I NEED IT FOR MAH LAZERS!"
@patchy: Made me think of Carrousel (sic)

That was actually a good film!

thubanstar - thanks so much for your point of view.

I fully agree - I look at these comments, and can`t believe the amount of bitter, jaded and obviously disappointed with life attitudes there are here. What`s wrong with a little girl believing that her brother might be in heaven? Let her have her belief.. she`ll grow up soon enough and become as bitter, jaded and disappointed as the rest of you.

Good lord, do you run around and tell little kids that Santa and the Easter Bunny don`t exist either?

It is comments like these about a little girl and her beliefs that make me embarrassed to be associated with this site.

Yes, let`s be picky about her beliefs. Makes us feel very superior.

I don`t really believe in God either, but if it made her feel better, who are we to criticise? Really, it`s one thing to say how silly it is when you are not standing in front of a grieving person, quite another to see their face contorted with pain and tell them how futile and foolish they are for any consoling thought.

Maybe she will think it over when she gets older and have a more sophisticated point of view on death. But right now, cut the poor child some slack in your head and stop squeezing your butt so tight it makes diamonds.
