I thought you were talking to evangelicals as well until you specifically mentioned atheists in the forth sentence.

You talk of "beliefs" and "reality", but you have absolutely nothing to support your concept of "Judgment Day", other than what you believe, the stories you've been told, and the book which you have been told is "sacred" and "the word of God". Where is the "reality" of "Judgment Day" other than in your own mind?

You are one confused religious individual.

I laud your corrections, and might I add that it should be prize.

But such is the price we pay for accuracy.

Some people sell fruit and profit from juice, some people sell God and profit from fear, and some people sell weapons and profit from war.

You see a lot, Mark W Laime. But are you strong enough to point that high-powered perception at yourself? What about it? Why don't you look at yourself and write down what you see?

Or maybe you're afraid to.

What does it profit a man if he sells an NFL franchise, but he is no more the owner of the franchise than you or i?

I wasn't aware that Ted Haggard had changed professions (and wardrobes) once again.

Yes, religion is pointless and vain.

Millions of Americans live without religion.
We find meaning in life, in wonder, in people, in discovery, in love.

You don't need God - to hope, to care, to love, to live.

Everything that Glen believes is of God.

Everything that Glen doesn't believe is of Satan.

Funny, that self-supporting, self-fulfilling construct, eh?

Glen, your "religion" is of Self, not God.

On the other hand, how can you be sure, according to your beliefs, that you have not been deceived by Satan as well?

Starbuck asks "Childish huh?"

Yes. Your beliefs are, indeed, childish.

For us, in the 21st century, to believe a story about talking serpents is childish.

To argue that the earth is not 4.5 billion years old, but only several thousand years old, contrary to all the physical evidence is childish.

To accept the myth of a 600+ year old man, his family, and a boatload of animals being the only living survivors of a global flood ~4,400 years ago as reality, contrary to the overwhelming physical evidence that shows there never was such a global flood is childish.

"Does God irritate you?"
No. There is nothing to cause me to think that God has any capacity to "irritate".

Or is it the Christians that gets [sic] under you [sic] skin?

No. Christians, per se, do not get under my skin. However, ignorance, regardless of a person's religious beliefs, does.

Ignorance such as yours, (which you display so proudly, and so frequently,) which would not exist, if not for your stubborn insistence to forgo the attempt to actually gain knowledge about the subjects about which you ignorantly and erroneously bloviate.

So you can stuff your persecution back into your smelly sock drawer, or back into your closet, or whereever your other imagined bogeymen live.

Adults who still cling to childish and ridiculous beliefs, as you do, are deserving of nothing but ridicule.

Do you still believe in the Tooth Fairy?
