Did anyone else see this forum?

It's been around for months, and there has not been a single coherent counter-argument to it (partially because it's so damn long). It's a pretty interesting read whether you are a follower or not (remember not to take offense to things like this)

Well, I just took a look at it. What I see is a pile of misunderstandings, baseless claims, and distortions of truth.

Yes, that's exactly what the other 900 people said about it. I was kind of looking for a more definitive answer, interpretation, or just a "good read" type comment. =p

I've given up on caring about organized religion entirely. Seriously i'm completely apathetic towards any one else's beliefs. If some one want's to believe that we're all created by some entity in their own image then fine, i don't care. Also, and largely statistically, i wouldn't care much if the same person drowned themselves in a tub of acid.

People are going to believe whatever they wan't to believe. Whatever their mother and father told them to believe. Whatever their social graph tells them to believe. Whatever the voices in their head tell them to believe. In the end, who cares what other people believe.

It's the people that get all fussy about what others believe that i worry about the most. The people who rage at any one with a belief that they don't agree with. As they are nothing more then spiritually insecure. Once a person finds a level of security within their own spirituality, I've found that they also find a greater peace and acceptance of others choices in the matter.

This brings me back to my usual religion/spiritual comment that they are not synonymous by any definition and aren't dependent on each other. I personally don't believe in any "god" type entity, i don't believe in a heaven or hell but if some one else chooses to then, hey, as long as their happy and content i don't care.
