    I know lots of vegans who think everyone should be vegan too.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Are the Russians and Chinese nicer than the Americans?

    Well, there's the answer to your question, Gromit.

    Nothing surer to make someone resistant to ever a good idea than giving them the impression they're going to be pressurised or compelled into it.

    I think it would be great if religion had less impact in the world. I say this as an evangelical christian. Faith is good, faith means something. Religion is just about rules and making yourself look better. It's totally empty. I think empty religion gets in the way of true faith.

    I think if you need to believe in god to care about other people, there's something wrong with you.

    I'm gonna love people whether I decide I believe in a god or not. What.the.hell.

    The question is, which religion?

    I'd prefer everyone to be an atheist over everyone being a theist. However, I know a lot of people who do a lot of good things in the spirit of religion. I wonder if those same people would still go out and help the poor and hungry if they lost that reason. I also wonder how many people would be able to keep themselves in check if they didn't have the fear of God hanging over their heads.
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.
