Respect for Religion
Hi guys this is my first post here and the reason behind this I want to ask a question.

So you know from were I come, I am from east Germany what has probably the densest amount of atheist you can find. For you who can understand a little german

http://www.welt.de/politik/deutschland/a...auben.html

Just from the graph's you can see we have just about 8% theists. In the population under 28 we have roughly 72% atheists and then a lot of people who just don't bother with the god concept.

I grew up without the god concept at all, my parents grandparents, friends no one ever mentioned the concept. So for me it was like Santa Claus. And I realized that I was an atheist when I learned that there are people who really believe in the god concept. You can imagine that I was quite shocked.

So how can I take grown up people seriously who believe basically in Santa Claus? This is not intended to be offensive but is the serious attempt to find an answer to this. Sooner or later I am bound to meet a person who I would like to respect but is a believer and I honestly cant see me capable of this.

I am asking you here because it is basically rather hard to ask this anyone at home because there are mostly two kind of people. Like my mother who is of the opinion to let everyone believe as long as there is no harm done and one should not insult people who want to believe. And the people that say "of course it is bullshit know lets talk about the real live". The people are so atheistic that if you ask them such question they lock as if you just asked their opinion on whatever the loch ness monster likes his sushi with soy sauce.

Thanks in advance Smile
