Bold statement.... I believe it. Arguing about the nonsensical is nonsensical. Believers believe because it helps them find meaning. We all search for meaning. We all create our own meaning. We envelope every facet of that meaning into life. We only experience our minds. Our minds create our world subjectively. We are the creators, we are our afterlife. However alive or dead that aspiration might be in the unknown reality.
To force opinions venomously, like I have before, cannot break what is immaterial and sacred. Only when, the sacred belief is no longer sacred can openness resume. In this hope is my faith... that the prison called "religious faith" be outweighed by tempered reason and what matters most. What we all can call real.
