In fact, if there is a hell, I think that anyone that would say something like that to someone will probably end up there themselves. After all, we should not judge others. We really shouldn't. Nothing good ever comes out of it. Life is too short to bicker amongst ourselves, especially about things we cannot see or prove.

    I am a member of the UUA, and I like that because I develop my own spiritual path and meet with a fellowship of people who are doing the same. I attend it with atheists, agnostics, Christians, Pagans. I wish there was a deeper spirituality at the meetings though and may be exploring my local Episcopal church to gain that. I like deep spirituality that borders on mysticism. I honestly don't care where it comes from as long as I feed that. The important thing to realize is that all religions speak to that deep spirituality that permeates the world around us, and it's a sad world when people take their religion too literally and lose sight of what all the religions have in common. Anyways, I think if I stay UUA, go to a Church, and spend a lot of time in nature, It will strength my spirituality and lead a more fulfilling life.
    As a Hindu who's more spiritually inclined than religiously (I'm not much of a fan of rituals and all that), I can totally see your perspective on this.

    I realize this might be asking a lot....but do you think you could explain this a bit? Because as you put it now, it's inherently nonsensical.

    I'm sorry, but I refuse, for reasons that aren't worth explaining.

    Perhaps Little Sticks may not mind if I reply in their place.

    So let me give you an example: when we go to the movies we suspend our disbelief for the duration of the movie, but when the movie ends, we return to reality.

    And it is the same for some of us with religion: when we go to chuch, mosque, synagogue, or temple, we suspend our disbelief for the duration, but when we leave, we return to reality.

    So we both believe and disbelieve, but not at the same time, so there is no contradiction.

    Interesting that there are no muslims among those responding...despite that there are about 1.5 billion people adhering to Islamic faith around the world...

    Not really. 14 people are Christians, 21 are non-believers.
