Eloren, u know, when i read your posts, i feel like I HAVE WRITTEN THEM
most of your sentences ARE EXACTLY WHAT I THINK! WORD BY WORD!
Darlings, this kind of conversations(meaning talks between the "believers" and rational thinkers/freedom lovers etc; talks between essentially different people) never lead to anywhere. i'd advise u just to save your time
It's not that i am asking u to give up on opening their eyes and minds, it's just that people will never give up their dogmas easily, no way! they have to fight their own way to realization of something, and only if THEY get to that "understanding" they will be able to change the way they think and act... CAUSE IT WASN'T IMPOSED, BUT THEY GOT TO IT... THEY WEREN'T CONVINCED, but THEY DISCONVERED!!
i never had any bad feelings about believers, never really though to question bible and jesus and all the other stuff that u have to believe blindly, untill i had to experience the "believers" life, see how stupid they are in life, just learning by heart few sentences from bible, and never being able to face the questions and finding any answers to them, how they ruined their childrens life just reading bible and not taking care of others, what hipocrits they are, forcing others to do things that they never do... in short, if before i'd say that i am a christian, after that i don't dare to use that word easily: I AM DEFENETLY NOT LIKE THEM! I am so happy, so grateful, that i just feel sorry for people who are stuck with that book, and every time someone quotes from it, i say: "oh! i am so lucky! "
