wait.. so Darwinism is a school of thought now? nice...
And yes, getting JIMP into this thread was the main reason for me starting it.
I really don't get you. What do you get EXTRA out of your faith by proclaiming it in every single post you make?
If you found your lord i'm very happy for you. Just don't tell me about it 24/7 unless the discussion leads that way. (so yes, this discussion is about exactly that)
Faith to me is something really personal. If you follow a certain believe i understand that influences your decisionmaking. But why does it also have to influence the decisionmaking of others?
I don't need your blessings. I think alot of people you respond to don't need them.
If you respond to some atheist post with "I will pray for you" you KNOW the OP won't appreciate it. Do you do it just to spite them?? and if so, wouldn't that go against your believes in the first place?
If you actually pray for those disbelievers at night, for god to save them, you have every right to do so.
But the moment you tell me you're praying for me i get angry. Is that what you want to achieve? Is that what the all forgiving god is telling you to tell me?
To me personally, i really don't care what you believe in, or what you do in private, But the moment you're telling me you're praying for me is the same as me telling you that i hope you burn in hell.
You might feel that way, you can even actually do it, and aslong as i don't know about it i would never tell you not to it...
the whole "live and let live" saying was certainly never thought of by a religious person. eventhough they sure like to quote it.
