patchouly: Ah i see.. well it's been my understanding that having religion is a bit different from having faith (or even meeting God). religious is kind of like focusing on the wrapping paper, whereas having faith is more of a focus on the gift under it. Sure, if every kid was supposed to focus on the wrapping paper, birthdays and Christmas would get dull pretty quick. Besides, when you meet someone, it`s kind of hard to take someone serious when they say that the person isn`t real. Just food for thought...

"Listypoos - hmm.. so you are hanging on to the notion that "Christians" are trying to covert you.
Have... have I done that to you? "
Hmm.. and did I say ALL Christians do, or are you just deliberately missing the point I was replying to now? Go on, do it again.... it just makes you look a bit silly.
Look, nice and simple for you....he said the notion of Christians trying to convert people was a misconception. I called BS on that and said that some Christians have done that...some, not *all*. Some...not *you* during this post. Some *Christians*, I haven't mentioned what some atheists have or haven`t done.
What now? You going to try and deflect from the point I was replying to of his I was calling BS on by bringing up what Buddhists do? Or any other poo I haven`t said you what to try and shoehorn into your reply to make it look more relevant?
Make sure to also install the Concordant Literal Version and Young's Literal Translation 1898 modules. Both are considered the best translations from the best biblical scholars & clergy in recent times (both published in the 19th century); the problem is the books are obscenely expensive at christian bookstores (like they don`t want you to buy them). Thankfully the copyright has lapsed and avail for free in database form.

747Pilot: "patchouly: i disagree, there are answers. I was in your shoes before. Like you said, "All it takes is the bravery to take that first step and look around" so don't be afraid to reach out with your spiritual sense and find out :D" ------
Was already religious. When you realize that the whole thing is built on a house of cards and is completely fake/based on nothing, it disappears in a puff of smoke. You need some pretty heavy medication to return to religion after seeing through it.
