    how about a new religion for those who dont believe, with all of the same rights afforded to all of those religions out there?

    could it be a force for good and help to balance the situation which is a little out of hand?

    any thoughts on this?

    come on people, lets hear the arguments for and against

    Why would the people who don't believe want a religion?

    John Lennon would make a good savior. The atheists could play his “Imagine” song during services. He was martyred off and everything.

    But John Lennon was a hypocrite ... Oh, right. We're talking about making a religion, so that's all right.

    Just a bit of humor. 🙂

    Edit: Jesus was no hypocrite.

    Seems like an oxymoron-ish idea, doesn't it?

    Blashpemer. You should be burned at the stake for uttering heresy. So sayeth the non-existant canon of scripture of the non-existant religion for the non-religious people.

    Changing the subject a little. I've been pondering your debate with DoctorScribbles. I would be interested in both of you presenting your case because "it's what Jesus would do." You don't really have to buy the "whole package" but I thought it would be an interesting road to take.

    No. I'll never do a debate like that again. I thought it might be fun, but I was wrong. It was an excruciatingly painful process.

    If God did not exist, it would be in mans nature to invent one.


    Hmmm😉

    In pre-scientific cultures, perhaps. But I don't think that's true anymore.

    i could direct you back to the "is jimmy hendrix God" thread, but i cant be bothered. For the most part i think T.V is probably the most common seudo God we have, spitting out little god retards ad infinitum, telling all the drones what is good and bad.
