Pheeew, religion has been my subject of choice for many years now and there is so much to say... But I would have to read the thread first. I`ll just say that I`m an agnostic, former catholic. Despite not being able to believe in any theistic teachings, I recognize the value of religion, even though I don`t approve with all of it or it`s methods. Believing in something gives you hope, and that`s immensely important in life. Suicide rates are highest with atheists. Did you know that every religion out there has a confession? It`s therefore the universal value, being able to tell everything that troubles you, and every religion cares to that. It goes on and on... I`d like to finish with a quote from Discworld: "No man should become a god, because then he would have no one to pray to."
