Faith is making a decision to lie to yourself because you really like the lie and it feels better than facing reality.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Religion is a primitive, irrational philosophy, an attempt to escape from reality, a socially acceptable delusion.

Do not lose your knowledge that man's proper estate is an upright posture, an intransigent mind and a step that travels unlimited roads. - Ayn Rand.

Don't sacrifice for me, live for yourself! - Me

The only alternative to Objectivism is some form of Subjectivism. - Dawson Bethrick

No, I am not convinced He is doing everything. First, God in whom I believe never claimed that He is doing everything. Second, I KNOW that I am doing many things.

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

So your god is not omniscient or omnipotent?

Not much of a god then. Drinking Beverage

The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike
