I don't regard you (or any person) as stupid. If you actualy read what
I wrote, you can see I referred to the FAITH as being stupid (NOT any
I feel that way about such FAITHS because they have little resemblance
to reality and people who follow them fail to use thier intelligence
to exaluate the situation. Most of these people are good people
otherwise (not at all stupid).
I have never called a person stupid. I would appreciate it if you
wouldn't accuse me of such things.

I don't expect you to suddenly drop your faith (demanding that would
be just as wrong as trying to "convert" you). I just ask you to think
about your faith, and how much sense it makes. Remember that ANYTHING
you "know" may be wrong. There is NO "priveleged knowledge" that is
exempt from the possibility of being wrong.

And if you got it wrong, you will have wasted your life following

Don't worry about it. It's complete bullshit anyway. Both Heaven and
Hell (if they even exist, which is highly unlikely) and not places
where a person could live.
(as you might have figured out, I am a regular in this group using a
different handle to provide some protection against the emotional
shrapnel being thrown around. What I'm saying is still honest and well
Before I was 5 years old, I knew enough about the real world to know
that it (Christianity) couldn't possibly be true.
