Of course you don't and you think the bible is a load of crap, yet when it is convenient for you to use it to 'prove' something you take advantage of it. Yet further contributing to how all the belivers look at you types with disgust at how ignorant you can be.
Let me ask you something, actually to everyone, is it not better to have hope for your entire life that you will die and you will go to heaven or is it better to say no we were made by a random natural proccess in a completly natural universe that you percieve to have been able to come from nothing.
I don't feel bad for you and I really don't care what you belive, my entire reason behind posting is showing how people LIKEYOU,
use the bible that you don't belive a word of to prove our own beliefs against us
lmao, sweet dreams
I don't think the bible is really...a reliable source for life. It's mainly a book to read to kids so they grow up and raise their children and let the religion institution grow. And what about the Koran?
Don't you think that might actually be true and more reliable than the little ol Bible?
I'm not saying I believe in any of it but..what makes you think your religion is right?
Once again I make the point of---every religion think their religion is above everyone else's.
Also, I think it's interesting to have hope and look forward to seeing Jesus when you die. I don't know, I had a lot of hope when Santa brought me presents for Christmas when I was little...now I know the truth.
Oh, and no, I rather not believe in something that's been proven false, for my entire life. I think I rather be my own individual self rather than have some organized religion tell me what to believe in and how to live.
Just my opinion.

What happens if we suicide?
Death is either final, or it's not. My step-father was facing a terrible existence (no need to go into details) and decided to take matters into his own hands....his FATE into his own hands....what's wrong with that???

I tend to believe that the Source energy accepts all. St. Augustine had motives, and in doing so he scared generations for thousands of years. I personally believe suicide is a valid moral alternative. I know someone who has been considering it for some time. She is tired of life and sees no point is proceeding forward. It can be a beautiful thing...as it must have been with your Father.

We are all entitled to our own beliefs. Your statement about astral travel struck a nerve with me though as I have these 'experiences' regularly. On the same note I would say to you that I don't believe in cancer cells. Never seen one, all I hear is silly stories about cancer blah blah blah. Haven't experienced it and don't believe in it!

To those talking about outer body experiences, I knew someone who played a game at a party that stops your heart for a few seconds. It was a simple game, I'm not sure exactly how it is done but you have to take several deep breaths and then have someone push or sit against a part of your chest.
Anyway I was never dumb enough to try it but a friend of mine did and for what seemed like forever (but was only a few seconds), she wasn't revived properly and someone had to resesitate her. It worked. When she woke up we took her into the bathroom and she said she heard us all freaking out very clearly and that she began floating from her body towards the ceiling.
I'm confident she truly experienced something we have no understanding of. I, however, think there are many things about our own minds and bodies we don't understand that could explain this event other than the theory that we have a never-ending spirit inside us.
