I mean, for hundreds of years we thought the sun was revolving around earth and the bible was written by God! Our pea-brains can barely win a game of checkers and now we're pretending we've got the only book written by God Himself. Just this country and Europe, and a couple other smaller countries. I know it sounds illogical that we were lucky enough to get the real God while those other parts of the world got the wrong ones, but we're such morons, us humans, that we believe we got the real book from God, and the others... well, the jokes on them.

My grandparents were religious. My parents were not. I am not.
My grandparents seemed to be much more at peace than my parents ever were. My grandfather was, hands down, the best human being it has been my honor to know. He was a fair, wise, well adjusted, honest, strong person. His son, my father, was just about the opposite. I imagine myself to be somewhere in the middle...
My point is, why spite others if they find something that can bring them peace and happiness? I personally envy those who can believe. I often wish I could.
