Agreed. I don't really swing either way. I just go on about my day.

If God doesn't exist already, we're going to build him eventually.

I agree. I am an atheist but I wouldn't go to an atheist meeting.

I would go to a meeting that addresses concerns with the encroachment of religious values on secular society. But that would be more of a secularist meeting than a religious one. I am passionate about that though.

Took awhile for me to reply to this...

but I guess the reason I went to the club is that in the area there's a hyper-Christian community and I thought it'd be aight to meet with some people that weren't that way, or had constructive dialogue about it. I'll say for the most part, the people are nice and respectful but I can tell most of them think they're better than believers and more intellectual as well.

I completely agree that people should have the right to believe what ever they want.

It's more of a discussion than a debate. There was a lot of healthy stuff that I saw coming out of that like understanding, but there was always the debate interjecting as welll.

We are inquisitive beings. We all search for answers in the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual realm. None of us really knows the answers. When one becomes so absolutely certain of their beliefs that they attack others then they have become extremist, and extremists fukc it up for everybody.

Low IQ people are prone to be sheeps, mindless worshipers, either from some imaginary being or Lebron, seeing how you do nothing but distill ignorance, and suck Lebron **** every time possible, it's not surprising you found religion.

Perhaps there is a void in their life they can't quite put a finger on.
