No, you referred to having faith as an act of stupidity and, as
such, called the person stupid for committing the act.

The problem with your point of view is that you believe it's
all-encompassing and yet it's only your opinion, colored by what has
happened to you during your life.

You did earlier in this post, so so much for consistency.

That was due to greed and thirst for power and had nothing to do
with what Robert's talking about.

Including everything _you_ have posted, so you must concede that the
possibility exists that you could be wrong, as could I.

Again, from _your_ point of view in the _present_. You have no clue
about what will happen to you when you die. But, maybe you'll get
your wish and once you're gone you'll _really_ be gone. Your soul
will be dead.

If he got it wrong it will make no difference and if he spent his
life pursuing a goal which made him happy then it certainly will
_not_ have been a wasted life.
>>You, on the other hand, will have a different experience.
>Wrong, since no experience is possible after death.
Again, who are you to say what's wrong and what isn't? The most you
can say is that you disagree with his belief and that you have faith
(yes, faith) in your beliefs being right.

Well, I think we can _all_ agree on that no one in either Heaven or
Hell is human.

In other words, you're a coward.

And you haven't grown up yet and come to the realization that it
_might_ possibly be true??? ROTFL!!!
