Why does there even have to be a higher power??? The wall analogy doesn't work here as you can't see or touch the 'god wall'. You see a blue wall and I see absolutely nothing.
Why do religionites insist that their deity has the monoploy on love, when love is a biochemical reaction that can be felt by theists and non theists alike. Why do you insist that love stems from your deity of choice??

Nice sentiments - will never happen tho!!

Its time we start to chang things...in the name of Good.
and those of you who know what good is know..that I speak this way, so that in seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear. Not to offer an offensive way, but a simpler path.
Good people...know what Good is
Grow where you are planted..

Let's accept that we don't know everything. And let's stop trying to convert one another to own own incomplete truths.
There's preaching and then there's telling everyone else that they're beliefs are wrong. I don't mind someone explaining what they believe just don't expect nor try and force me to believe it. If I want to be 'damned' then thats MY choice, not yours not jesus's or god's. If they want me to believe in them then why send a lacky, I'm a big boy now - come speak to ME face to face.

Jesus also said this
Mark 16: And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
How can a christian disobey this command.
