The same guy who goes to great lengths to let you know he doesn't believe and this is why you shouldn`t believe, is just as crazy as the zealot, overly-religious type. We`re all just bumping around in the dark for the short time we have here, uncertain of what happens next. So believe what you want to believe, and leave each other alone on the subject.

Maybe religion isn't flawed, but man`s interpretation of it is.

"after seeing how boring, and sometimes crazy, their rituals are"

Which christian rituals do you think aren't boring? The sitting listening to a guy read out of a book? Listening to people sing off key? Eating crackers?

"I think not, after seeing how boring, and sometimes crazy, their rituals are I'd have never got into it. I`d seen a lot of those National Geographic type shows on TV and read quite a lot of their magazines."

You realize, of course, that they wouldn`t appear that way to you as you`d be a part of that culture.

Daisetz Suzuki, a famous Zen master, once said this of Christianity:

"Let`s see. Nature against Man, Man against Nature; God against Man, Man against God; God against Nature, Nature against God; very funny religion!"

So, from an Eastern perspective, Christianity is very difficult to understand.

"Bullsh|t, otherwise you would've chosen LordZeus or HolyZeus. You`ve been disingenuous about it from the start and your "..it aoffends me that you are a non-believer." comment just cements the fact that you`re trolling."

You think Jehovah has a trademark on the word "god"? Hate to break it to you pal but billions of people have referred to thousands of deities as "god" including zeus.

I have just as much proof that zeus exists as you have that your god exists so if me saying I believe in zeus is trolling then you saying you believe in your god is trolling.

Let`s stop arguing and all believe in the Shinto tree spirits of our ancestors. Deal?
