I am beginning to think I have reached the end of the road of my religious meanderings, having explored/covered every major theme and have now arrived at a point where there is a danger of becoming infected by this insanity in minor ways.

No, I would not renounce Jesus if someone was holding a gun to my wife’s head, and she would not if the situation were reversed. We don’t worship each other more than God, and this life is not all there is. Our lives don’t end with death. Unlike atheism, we actually have an answer for … More Oh for gods sake.

What is a normal person, Ark? Certainly not you. You don’t believe in anything you can’t prove beyond a shred of doubt. That myopic narrow-minded view of the world is certainly not the norm. I would not give up my faith for my family. Would you give up your atheism and embrace Christianity if your … More Oh for gods sake! The Insanity of it all.
