      Maybe you do all these things but i do not. I know another group of people who do not these things and they can get another group of people who do not..

      what kind of a crowd are you hanging around with?
      You spelt steel wrong, the word to be used is steal.
           I think perhaps you are behind the times of today's Christians. I know many 20 year olds who adhere to the word of god and i know many many older people than myself who also adhere to the word of god. In persecuted countries where mentioning the name of jesus can get a person locked in jail for 3-20yrs, their adherence to the word of god is beyond amazing! they would be so upset to read this!
          I myself adhere to the word of God, none of those things do i do, not because i am Mr. wonderful or because neither did i desire to do those things, but because i realized that God is able to overcome all those things and since God dwells in me, (there's that personal experience thing again) as a born-again christian (the born-again part means, born into a new being by the spirit of God IN me which means i do not desire nor do i partake in works of darkness, which you mentioned above).

      How about we just kill this stupid thread and you get out more, look around and actually see what christians are doing before you want to kill the only thing that has inputted any good at all into a world of chaos.

          Cagsil, judge others and the judgement returns to your front door. Why are a few people ignorant by thinking that people will all know how to behave peaceful and happily without laws and moral values? This is the furtherest from the truth. Civil law, rules, and polices keeps the peace and allow happiness to abound. Nothing else!

        I agree with you- it's not God's fault that there is so much crime. God is full of love and mercy. Christians need to take a stand and tell the truth and testify what God is doing in their lives. I have nothing but good to say regarding God as I have been blessed over and over as I continue to lean into Jesus. As you can see I'm a born again believer of Jesus Christ.

      No need to Kill anyone,  but we have to change our attitude and thinking pattern. Before chaning to anyone we need to change oursleves and our thinking. If we think we all are same and from one religion, slowing through our vibration they will also believe we are from one religion. So better change ourself first in all your words, thinking and actions.

      Of course I am religious. I know that God exists, and I know that angels exist. I also know that Satan exists, and the reason so many "righteous" people live like the Devil, is because they follow the Devil, not God. Claiming to be a Christian does not make you one. Humans are very gullible. How else could con-men rip us off? You may to read the Bible. It is recorded that Jesus said Satan would deceive the whole world, except for a few elect. Most likely you are deceived since you posted this thread. People believe in God because God exists. Miracles happen every day that baffle the hell out of scientists and doctors. If you ever experience a true miracle, you'd understand.

      I was in a car wreck on the interstate that totaled 5 cars. I was a passenger in a car doing 70 mph when we hit a traffic jam of stopped cars. They fell like dominoes and crushed like beer cans when the car I was in hit them full speed. I was not in a seat belt, and I had no time to react. Other people hit the windshield, hit the dashboard, got messed up. All I remember was something wrapped around me holding me, I was watching the wreck in slow motion, and I wasn't scared because I felt safe. Everyone in the wreck was amazed that I didn't get a scratch. That's what a guardian angel can do for you, if you have one.

      I have other stories, but you probably think it's all in my head. The laws of physics always work. Right? Sure, unless God interveins, then anything can happen. Have you ever seen a dead person come alive after being taken to the morgue? I have, it happened after a preacher prayed for the woman, 4 hours after she died.

      How many religous authority figures have dipped their wick where it hasn't belonged. Why are the authority figures now saying they apologise for robbing many a young poor boy and girl their childhood.

          consider if you were at the same cliff screaming & calling for help, but wait someone is coming ,he can see you.... he can help... is looking directly at you... he...turn the other cheek ...and leave ! believe me it`s the worst feeling ever, you won`t feel safe forever even if you`re among people

          in my religion we have a verse that say

          "And whoever saves a life it is as though he had saved the lives of all mankind" (5:32)

          in math   ∫ (∂/∂t life) = life/ t         & if  t = time we all live  smile

          I have no desire to end religion or kill off religion or any such thing, because I have no desire to attempt to control other people, their minds or hearts.

          But I do wish that religiously brainwashed idiots would realize that their beliefs come from the minds of ancient goat-herders and not a god. You think atheists are evil, selfish, unethical people, as demonstrated in your post, simply because people who have been dead for nearly 2 millenia or more said so.

            Elegantly stated!  Too bad it's just as impossible to get anyone to realize that as it is to get people to understand, despite scientific proof, that even our memories are for a large part false recollections.  Despite the fact that the event that we recall never changes, because it is in the past and is forever static our memories are dynamic in that they can and in fact do change over time to reflect an asynchronous relationship usually in greater relevance to the distance in time since they occurred.  This is seen in everyday life as well as in-the-field and laboratory studies.  Have you ever lost something and swore it was somewhere you in actuality did not leave them?  Has someone ever quoted you and you swore it was a misquote and they present recorded proof of the exactness of your speech?  In this and in religion we are so 'certain' that we are right that we deny all alternate possibilities and can never be convinced otherwise.  In a different perspective, agnostics claim a god could exist but also could not exist.  Some agnostics are practicing in their associated beliefs to try and develop a closer relationship with that god and others do not.  Why, then, is it so impossible for religious individuals to claim with 100% certainty that they are in fact correct and the rest of the world is abhorrently wrong.  I accept that not all do this, but from these replies alone we can see first hand this is a popular stance.  If you cannot look at the world objectively, be it for or against religion, then you effectively cannot even make a responsible decision for yourself.  Everyone seems to get so caught up in their own personal attributions that if anyone says something that contradicts us we go berserk.  We are defiant for these metaphysical alliances despite the fact that if they exist in all their glory they need no protection from your retaliation.  In fact, it can only hurt your message.  The truth is no one knows if any religion is correct.  Therefore, no one can state they are correct without contradicting the fact that they are humans, and by that notion ignorant.  (Ignorance is defined as lacking knowledge because it is not presented, not to be confused with words like 'stupid' which are generally derogatory remarks for incompetence.  If you claim that you are not ignorant to the fact of religion then you are effectively stating that it is not a belief but a science, and that you alone are privileged to information not available to the world at large.  Note:  The Bible or any other religious text is not significant enough proof as we all know that of those of that time that could read and write were already at a significant advantage to writing propaganda to control the uneducated masses, in this case to an extent surpassing Jim Jones, Karl Marx, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Saddam Hussein combined.  This is not to say either/or are right or wrong, correct or incorrect, and is only a statement of possibility, but is information that should be considered.)

              Because a Creator deity fails due to; myriad begged questions, furious hand waving and broken logic as it explains nothing.

              Objective supporting evidence the universe was manufactured?

              Objective supporting evidence your deity can even find its arse using a road map, flashlight, and both hands?

              If everything must be manufactured that applies to your deity construct as well.

          No, you've not 'put yourself in an atheist's shoes.'  You've projected your actions onto others.

          Why do you spout your lying ignorance when you haven't the faintest clue as to what an atheist is?

          Not a Christian?  Fair enough.  You are a theist  who can't be trusted 'off leash.' That's what your prior post and this one flat demonstrates.

          Whatever your brand of superstition is, please never lose it, as it is the only thing keeping you from running amok-again, as your words show.

          I'll leave it to self-centred theists like you to be the monsters.

        Regardless of association to race, religion, creed, or social status humans will gather together and throw of the shackles of oppression the conquer a common goal.  This is only untrue in cases of absolute stubborn behavior as well as in physical damage to the mental faculties.  Just as in one of the most racist times in history when the American government in dire need of more soldiers began enlisting African-American soldiers into the armed services, regardless of the individual belief when they were forced to fight side by side they set aside their differences and accomplished the task at hand.  This is true, as I said, in all cases except in the most stubborn of bigots, in which case they themselves were the focus of derision for not participating in the 'new' group.  There are other parallels that can be drawn between posts on this board and racism.  When you look upon an atheist with derision and say that since they do not have a religion they no longer have control of their morals it is to say we are less/not human.  It is not religion that keeps you from murdering another, it is that 3.5 lbs of tissue you so frequently underestimate feeding you shame and guilt through chemical sequences that overpower your conscious mentality.  If this was not the case, then atheist would be out murdering and raping everything despite rather or not anyone else in the world has a religion or not.  That would not even be a variable.   It is amusing to see so many people self-aggrandizing their point-of-view as if their mental faculties are so accomplished that they themselves have transcended to another plane and are speaking with the authority that can only come from the retrospect of a soul already positioned in the afterlife.  Also the derogation you expel for those not inside your clique contradicts the intricacies and social etiquette expounded upon inside most religious texts.  You see, an objective view is one that accepts all beliefs without accepting or denying them as true.  The core of a belief system is personal and should not be instilled.  The words are true for non-believers as well.  However, the original point of this topic, I believe, is that religions take advantage of the legal system telling others how they can and cannot live.  This is in violation of individual human rights. 

        Laws can be used to protect, but any law is a restriction on freedom.  When it gets to the point when groups that would not normally partake in activities any way try to enforce a restriction on the rest of society it becomes a conflict of interest.  Just for examples sake, abortion.  If it is your religious sects. belief that abortion is wrong then by all means do not do it and never allow yourself to be 'forced' into it.  On the alternative side, no where in the Bible does it say that you are supposed to enforce people from sinning.  You are only supposed to lead by your good example and express you alliance with the lord.  I know this from a lifetime of seminary experience.

    Religion has nothing to do with Free Will. Regardless, of the religion you may or may not practice acts that are consider a crime or sin are still subject to an individual's Free Will. Considering that most religions were started as political movements to control populations, religious rules and guidelines have varied over time to suit the controlling power.

    However, if you are someone that practices a religion and still chooses to violate the covenants of that religion it is your Free Will the dictates those violations, not the fault of religion. Further, as long as there is just one person that believes in a greater power than that which can be found on Earth then there will never be a death to religion.

      Free Will does not exist.  It does not exist with Christianity and doesn't exist in reality.  No matter how much 'Free Will' I have I will never be able to physically flap my arms and fly around the world.

      With Christianity all are mere actors in a pointless play hitting their marks and speaking their lines as scripted eons ago when 'God' had too much Odin's Ale and pickled eggs and farted the universe into being.

        Free Will does exist. It took the notion of Free Will to believe in whatever faith to begin with. It continues to take Free Will to blindly follow or not follow any given faith.

        Free Will is simply the ability to make a choice and the choices we make dictate the lives we lead.

          Fact is, all religions have tragic histories of committing and receiving great wrongs all for the sake of a God or gods that have told them so. When it comes right down to it religion is a faith in something more while for an equal amount it is justification for causing harm even though they know it to be wrong.

              The results of the Christians vs atheists
              in prison investigation.

              Catholic               29267   39.164%
              Protestant             26162   35.008%
              Atheist                  156    0.209%

              It isn't difficult to realize why.

              http://www.skepticfiles.org/american/prison.htm

              Atheists Supply Less Than 1% Of Prison Populations

              In "The New Criminology", Max D. Schlapp and Edward E. Smith say that two
              generations of statisticians found that the ratio of convicts without
              religious training is about 1/10 of 1%.  W. T. Root, professor of
              psychology at the Univ. of Pittsburgh, examined 1,916 prisoners and said
              "Indifference to religion, due to thought, strengthens character," adding
              that Unitarians, Agnostics, Atheists and Free-Thinkers are absent from
              penitentiariers or nearly so.

                 During 10 years in Sing-Sing, those executed for murder were 65% Catholics,
              26% Protestants, 6% Hebrew, 2% Pagan, and less than 1/3 of 1% non-religious.

                 Steiner and Swancara surveyed Canadian prisons and found 1,294 Catholics,
              435 Anglicans, 241 Methodists, 135 Baptists, and 1 Unitarian.

                 Dr. Christian, Superintendant of the NY State Reformatories, checked
              22,000 prison inmates and found only 4 college graduates.  In "Who's Who"
              91% were college graduates, and he commented that "intelligence and
              knowledge produce right living" and that "crime is the offspring of
              superstition and ignorance."

                 Surveyed Massachusetts reformatories found every inmate religious, carefully
              herded by chaplins.

                 In Joliet, there were 2,888 Catholics, 1,020 Baptists, 617 Methodists and
              0 non-religious.

                 Michigan had 82,000 Baptists and 83,000 Jews in their state population.
              But in the prisons, there were 22 times as many Baptists as Jews, and 18 times
              as many Methodists as Jews.  In Sing-Sing, there were 1,553 total inmates with
              855 of them Catholics (over half), 518 Protestants, 177 Jews and 8 non-
              religious.  There's a very interesting qualified statistic.

                 Steiner first surveyed 27 states, and found 19,400 Christians, 5,000 with
              no preference, and only 3 Agnostics (one each in Connecticut, New Hampshire,
              and Illinois).  A later, more complete survey found 60,605 Christians, 5,000
              Jews, 131 Pagans, 4,000 no preference, and only 3 Agnostics.

                 In one 29-state survey, Steiner found 15 unbelievers, Spirtualists,
              Theosophists, Deists, Pantheists and 1 Agnostic among nearly 83,000 inmates.
              Calling all 15 "anti-christians" made it one half person to each state.
              Elmira reformatory overshadowed all, with nearly 31,000 inmates, including
              15,694 Catholics (half), and 10,968 Protestants, 4,000 Jews, 325 refusing
              to answer, and 0 unbelievers.

                In the East, over 64% of inmates are Catholics.  In the national prison
              population they average 50%.  A national census found Catholics 15%.  They
              count from the diaper up.  Hardly 12% are old enough to commit a crime.
              Half of these are women.  That leaves an adult Catholic population of 6%
              supplying 50% of the prison population.

                 Liverpool, England produces three percent as many young criminals as
              Birmingham, a larger city, 28% coming from Catholic schools.

              What does this tell you about parochial school systems or claims that religion
              is the guardian of morals?

              * Fifty-two percent of people belong to no church, yet live clean lives and  *
              * supply less than 1% of the total criminal population.  So much for         *

                Okay, I can respect your viewpoint. In all fairness I have yet to read the Quran but I did go through a phase in my younger years of studying a wide variety of religions because of the diversity of my family's religious outlooks. At a young age I was exposed to Hindu, Christianity, Catholicism, and Druidism. My belief system is unique to say the least, and whichever smarta$$ comments I may make from time to time, I do ultimately believe that everyone is entitled to their own faith or lack of faith. Nor do I judge a person because of their religion.

                I still have to laugh at Burkas for Blackberrys though, it just strikes me as funny.

        I will agree that there are many religions that advocate killing folk who disagree with them, but Christ never said that, believers are to hate the world (system) but love other people as they love themselves.

        I'll also agree that many so called Christians do not love themselves, having been trapped in a doctrine rather than a relationship with Christ, but that's no reason to kill religion, more a reason to set people free by showing them Christianity, rather than Churchianity.

        Different things!

        Besides, we already killed Christ once, but it did not work, He came right back and death was defeated. smile

              Here are just a few bits of "love" approved of in the holy bible.


              Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death.  Such evil must be purged from Israel.  (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

          You should not let a sorceress live.  (Exodus 22:17 NAB)

          Homosexuals
          "If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives."  (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)

          A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death.  (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

          Then he kills his own son.

          The words of a homicidal maniac. Just dripping with love!!!!

            As soon as the 'cross-hairs' of their 'loving' maniac God hit them their view reverses.

See my hub on "the atheist says show thyself god" for a more detailed look at the impossiblity of god showing himself and the inevitable conclusion of god thinking.. instead of slapping every bodies hands every time they try to sin, how about i just kill them and concentrate on the non arrogant people.

          Excuse me stoned one, God set these rules as part of the first covenant, a covenant of flesh.
            Hebrews 8:7 "For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second".
            Hebrews 8:8 "For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah":
            1 Corinthians 15:45   And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
            1 Corinthians 15:46   Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
            1 Corinthians 15:47   The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
            1 Corinthians 15:48   As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
            1 Corinthians 15:49   And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

          God says to us, love your enemies. Do good to those who persecute you and other loving stuff. Therefore the heart of a christian is not warped or sick, it may have been at one time, when they were unsaved as i can tell that you are.
          I suppose we could just smile and wave as you walk off a cliff but we are not like that. I may be hard handed with you but its because i care that you are in direct line to a cliff. I may be soft and say "its good that you think that way", because i am tired of fighting but at no time do i ever think you are unworthy to be saved, and therefore do WE persevere with you rude children. so

                You're assuming that all believers are convinced their religion is right and everyone elses is wrong...a fallacy. All religous people don't feel this way, I certainly don't.

                Buddhists believe that everyone has there own path to follow, and because that path is right for that one person, does not mean that it will be right for anyone else.

                We all have our own paths to follow and for some that means Christianity is right, for some Buddhism is right, for some Shinto is right, but for everybody, it is the the right religion for that person.

                  That makes no sense. If you believe another religion is right, then why don't you follow it?



                  Again, that says more about what someone wants to believe and has nothing to do with what the religion states.



                  Then, those are the religions those people want to believe, which says absolutely nothing about the religion itself and everything to do about the person. They can then chose to believe the universe was sneezed out of a giant lizard, and it means exactly the same thing.

    I've never had a problem with any of this, and although not a church-goer I've always considered myself to be a 'christian'. Now I'm told by various religionists that I'm not a Christian at all. Apparently you have to be 'born again' whatever that is!

      Amanda,

      The 10 Commandments are good, basic, moral values that I believe everyone should practice and should be taught to every child regardless of anybody's religion.

      If you believe in the Scrolls of Christ, they teach that you relationship with God is between you and him. God never required a church or middlemen for you to talk to him or to abide by the covenants set forth in early teachings. It has taken centuries of pollution and interpretation in all religions to bring about the notions of what is right and wrong. There is no need to be "born again" or anything else. As long has you are confident in your beliefs, do not let anyone shake your faith by telling you that you're doing it wrong. You relationship with God is simply that and it is yours alone to decide how you choose to practice your faith.

      While I do not believe in any one all powerful being, I do believe that if there is one God then he or she is intelligent enough to recognize the faithful.

        When we are born we have but one destiation.  Death.
           
           We were given this directive. 
          Enjoy yourself while remembering where it came from;  Don't take away the joy from others. No sense in hurrying up to your destination.
         
           People couldn't follow this simple directive so laws were created in an appempt to clarify.  Mankind searches for loop holes.
        The more laws, the more loop holes.
             
           As Jesus said, LOVE GOD with all your heart (enjoy the gift and remember);  Love your neighbor as thy self (don't take anyones joy away)  If you follow these then you have followed them all.

           I know that isn't quite right...  But its something like that.

                     This is what Jesus was talking about in the parable of the husbandmen killing the owners son instead of paying their rent.
                     The owner ran them off and gave the vinyard to others.

                  I do believe God was helping them in the 7 day war.  I also believe there is even a bigger war coming, and God will step in then too.

    I would think that the proof of a prophet being one, would have to be in his prophesy.

      "If"  we can believe that Jesus came back as it is clearly written that he says that he will.
       We would then see the prophesy in a different light.
       We would then see that most all of them have been fulfilled exactly as they were written.

       Yea,  yea ,  a little interpretation of the book Revelation is needed.
       We just have to compare the interpretations as given in the book of Daniel by Gabriel as having the same meanings for those same symbols written in Revelation.
        With just a little  effort we can see that all of these prophesy began being fulfilled immediately after the crucifixion. 


        As far as being born into a particular religion goes?
    They are all wrong if they interpret the true meanings of what Jesus is said to have spoken, to mean something else entirely.

           If a religion teaches something that is the oposit of what he said. That would be one of the wrong religions.
           Just speaking from the context of the KJV. 

           Religion says that at the "second coming" Jesus will come in the clouds sitting at the right hand of power.

          Jesus said that " Some of you standing here shall see me coming in the clouds sitting at the right hand of power.  ???

            Thanks for asking ... again.  no really   
                My faith was born again (excuse the pun)
                         

               I think that I had always had a faith that somebody/something
            was up there looking down on me. Before I had ever stepped foot in a church.
               I had had encounters as I was growing up that proved this in my mind at least.
               I by no means lived my life as a believer is taught that they should.
               When asked if I was a Christian I would answer "depends on what you think a Christian is"

               I've had many experiences that affirms to me that there is a higher power    up there/here with us? .

               But it wasn't until I read the book of Daniel for my self; and saw that church wasn't teaching what I was reading that my faith in Church was shaken.

               It was when I came to understand the words written in red, and I understood that Daniels visions pertained only to that Hebrew Nation that it was written to, ... That my beliefs evolved into what they are.  I believe what is written that Jesus said.  "This generation shall not pass away til all these things be fulfilled"  When I started doubting Church my faith in God got stronger
               That is where my faith has come from!
               
                 Now I truly believe what I profess.
              I think that I have been professing that long enough for you to have some idea as to what that is.

                   Knowing now that the Church that the Roman Empire built is who assembled their choice of different text(New testament) calling it the inspired word of God causes me to question some of its accuracy.  But I'm not throwing the baby out with the wash water. 
                   The church back then didn't want anyone to know that
                The seven seal judgments were loosed upon the Hebrew Nation around 30 AD. And the trumpet judgments were sounded against the Roman Empire.

                   The Church back then didn't want anyone to know a lot of stuff.  That is why no one had a coppy of their bible until a thousand years passes.

      Take a world history lesson and pay close attention, since no one else seems to, that the majority of leaders and rulers during times of great evil were associated to a religious faction.  What is far more scary is that history shows this rings most true predominantly with Christian rulers.  The only way that today would be as terrible an age as the crusades would be if world war three were to initiate.  We have amazing technology, the most advanced and superior medical health in the history of time, and have ventured to other planets surveying onward for viable resources to aid in our advancement.  Scientist are statistically of the least religious in proportion to other careers and yet it is they, not preachers, that continue these amazing comforts you would pray for had these atheist not beat him to it.

    To step back and see the whole of picture, of what is going on around us in this day and age, is scary without understanding why these things are happening, and having some kind of positive hope, for the future, would be so scary for me.....

      If we are to live without religion, are we ready to move headless cause religion is our heads; it is what you and I carry even in our sleep.

        Well ...for one thing ..Religion today is something that is divdin mankind  ..imean a muslim will neva approve of hinduism or chritianity and vice versa moreover ...they will keep fighting over difference in opinion leadin to more of communal violence . On the other hand i dont need to b religioua to show ppl that im a good soul . ppl dont judge by wad religion u follow but your karma. But still if you wanna follow a religion for your own peace of mind follow HUMANITY and be human .No religion is bigger and better than HUMANITY

          agreed rajiv..religion is too narrow view of things..it worked till humans had limited excess but today when world is global and more exposed, when we know lot about universe , religion needs to be re defined...

      They're happening due to mindless superstitions in the world.  Those folks refuse to grow up and pick up the tools of adulthood.

      The problem is that a little wisdom is the most dangerous thing on the earth.

              Glad you liked it.  The theists were already in a hole from the start and couldn't stop digging.

                Wouldn't it be interesting if the religionists here actually addressed any of these issues? lol

                catholicism is not indicative of any other religion.
                can we get a few sentences of truth from you people. Your inferences are just fancy lies.
                it is quite frustrating when you have this sliding scale of truth that you use so often and then call us corrupt.
                if and when you speak make sure it is truth and not some conjured inference that you think might be truth.
                thankyou.

      And how you would accomplish the "killing all religions", by killing all those who believe in a religion?

      Would it be a peaceful and human thing to do?

      Then what would the atheists of hubpages do?

      if you say something useful, then you point out this is a work of uselessness.
      if you say play with our grandchildren more often then you point out this is more important than your grandchildren
      if you say, be happy then you point out this makes you unhappy, but you prefer this state of unhappy over playing with grandchildren and  uselessness and you tell of your pitiful lives.
      if you say, we will go pick on someone else, lol, then you show your goodness is not so good and that you are essentially evil.
      if you say, we will go back to our other hobbies, then i ask why is it you cannot do that inspite of religious talk on the forums?

      surely by now you see that christians talking about God is far more beneficial for them, than all the hours, and insults and degrading and depraved inferences you make. And that your time is completely wasted. To this fact we have the upper hand. We get to preach you get to listen, in this we are happy and you get madder and madder, lol. In this you can see that your time is completely wasted.
      Wasting your life in hubpages is a terrible thing to do even if after this life there is nothing but more emptiness.
      God created you for better, but i digress.

      have a nice day
