I was raised as a Lutheran, I have gone through all the steps of religion including, but not limited to baptism and caddycism during my summer months
as a youth.
My sister is studying world religion and theology and I have friends that have 4 years of biblical studies of the same class category.
I am not holding a blind eye to your acceptances and your beliefs as you wish them for you, but I am saying that there is only one thing that will
ever make an absolute difference in this world or this plain of existence, nobody knows what happens for sure when your time comes, and if you quote
another psychiatrist on that one ,I'll freaking puke.
I don't care that you have to use the shoulders of men to get your point across to individuals/me that being atheist is wrong. The problem you are
failing to see is that I am on my own with no psycho babble and reference to people that have a belief system to help make themselves feel whole or
good about themselves.
I much rather know that there is nothing that I can't do in my life as far as my knowledge allows, and if I don't know, I will learn it by studying,
which by the way leads me right back to my conclusion. "I think there is a conception of a 'God Delusion' that is running rampant and unexplainable
for normal societal acceptations as a whole."
There is nothing you have said that I haven't heard before, and I know it will always be that way. I live a good life, not perfect, but good. I help
my neighbors and my friends like any other "Normal" person does for their loved ones. The depiction of your explanation leaves me feeling a bit
ridiculed and withdrawn for the basic fact, in so many words, you are saying we are incorrect for society and we are more than likely suffering from a
mental disorder? I think not.
And when it comes to the conclusions that I have made for myself, they had nothing with the influencing of my father, mother , sisters or anyone else
for that matter.
You use your argument as a basis of fact, when in all actuality, they are nothing more than quotes and jabs to defend your stability as a good
christian or a person with a belief system.
