It's funny because it's true :) I hear every single one of those absurd arguments from theists (not so much the "burn him at the stake" one, but still...)

Yea that was thrown in there to give some historical context :)

I readily admit that. What makes us good and what makes us do bad can be explicable from an evolutionary biological and social standpoint...Human morality and solidarity is innate in us. Oh and I don't 'reject' God... I simply don't think a being like this exists. Rejection implies, i knew he was real in the first place. This, this is wrong.

Yes i am entitled my thoughts. I stIll want to further elaborate on my point that I do not reject GOD. There is a difference between rejecting the belief in Gods, of which I do, and rejecting God meaning if there was proportional evidence for extraordinary claim that God exists, I would reconsider and believe. There's no plausible or convincing reason, certainly no evidential one, to believe that there is such an entity, and that all observable phenomena including the cosmological ones... are explicable without the hypothesis; you don't need the assumption. I don't reject the idea of a deity any more than I reject the idea of a leprechaun. I lack belief in these things because no one's ever given me a convincing reason to do anything else.

Yea I don't doubt that one bit. He is has real to you as you are to him.

I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Analogy or not, I am neither tormented nor frustrated. This claims are unfounded and slightly missing the point, a red herring if you will. First of all on what basis can one claim truth? and if this claim is anything other than verifiable, testable, repeatable, falsifiable, peer reviewed and proven then, it is disingenuous to call is truth, especially if the whole 'truth' is based on belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence. One can believe it to be truth but making a exceptional claim like that outright would need proportionally exceptional evidence for it, of which no primate in or out of special garments have done. If none is given, it is more truthful to be on the default null position, that is rational skepticism, if the goal is to minimize the number of false beliefs and maximize the number of true beliefs one holds. A claim like this can be dismissed. No more assumptions should be taken than necessary.

Otherwise I have made my point clear as day the the comment before, there is no need to go any further.

Again I have absolutely no idea what you are trying to say. You're implying that the brain is better than the mind rathe the brain is 'light' and the mind is 'dark' or something to that effect. The mind is what the brain does :/ Consciousness is a property of the brain. It is not a "thing", as such. Certainly it is not whatever ethereal presence you are attempting to imply. Consciousness is simply the result of the various parts of the brain working in conjunction with one another. The mind is what the brain does. It's a distinction without a difference.

Then the notion of prayer comes into it.. which makes it less explicable also makes itself is self-cancelling. But if prayer helps the person in life or gets them trough a tough patch or be happy in general, I have nothing against it.

But to the other-side, implying in anyway that my mind, which does not teen the continuous reinforcement of prayer is somehow missing something or is weak i.e 'dark' is pretty offensive not to mention wrong. I am fine, I am not lost or weak or whatever you seem to imply by me using my mind and not praying. Those of us who don't take part in it will justify our abstention on the grounds we do not need, or care, to undergo the futile process of continuous reinforcement. Either our convictions are enough in themselves or they are not. To say or in this case imply other wise is disingenuous.

Again you're making no sense. There's no 'dragon' in the way you imply. I'm not in 'darkness' as you imply & I already have 'light'.
You basically asserted something what is not in question. You assumed it was. Again I am not frustrated. I find it enlightening, empowering perhaps even a sense of purpose and joy in the findings out about the worlds, nature, cosmos and what have ya. Knowing what can and as of yet cannot be known, in knowing I know nothing but I use rational scepticism to find out what is currently true or known and what people assert is true or known. I question everything. I am not 'frustrated' because of this, I find it liberating, as I know I am part of the intellectual integrity of humanity.

Your 3rd part seems ok, that I am accepted the way I am and the way I am now, everybody should accept people the way they are, within reason. But without going into unnecessary detail, what you say seems to conflict with the fundamental teachings of Christ, we are not, according to Christians, we are born sick and commanded to be well. It is often said that we are all sinners. Also that homosexuals are not being condemned for what they do, they are being condemned for who they ARE. You may disagree, but this is what it is said, but that is neither here nor there. This is trivial, so I will end it there.

Yes tomorrow I'ill see things differently, that is part of life, but to imply that I will see things not just differently but better, you allude that I must not be living to my fullest potential. This is also wrong. I am. I am not in 'darkness' is wrong, again you assert something that isn't true. I am happy the way I am, I am happy to live life, and live life not believing in any god or gods. 'Light' is here for me now. The meaning I get in life is here now. Implying that I have no 'light' in which I take as meaning or purpose or being happy etc. is not only wrong but insulting to many.

All of your comments have made extreme assumptions about me and my life and it comes across, even it it wasn't the intent, as disingenuously alluding that my life now is somewhat nothing or less so compared to whatever is to be expected in the future, basing on nothing but assumptions you and your beliefs are making about me. I simply don't think a heaven or bliss exists in the future as I already have it here. There's nothing more & I want nothing more. You also seem to be really sure that I will give up convictions of a life time and recant to be in this light.
