are THEY afraid of?

Thanks for the Best Answer vote. I have just reached the age where I am unable to tolerate scams of any kind. And it's so obvious to me that religion is the biggest scam ever perpetrated on the human race. We'd do better to worship dogs than "gods".
You are being judged every day, Jesus said that a person is judged by every idle word that proceeds from his mouth. Historical events cannot be fully ascertained. So we don't really know
theman - Whatever happend to "judge not, lest ye, youself be judged"? The bible can be picked apart for sound bites that fit ANY scenario.. It tries to be one size fits all and fails miserably.
"We don't really know" is exactly the conclusion I drew 22 years ago when I became agnostic. Sounds like we agree, then.
What exactly are 'they' being 'saved' from? Humans live and they die, just like any other animal. The "burning pit of Hell" is an IMAGINARY place! Being "born into sin" is IMAGINARY. There is no NEED to be "SAVED" from anything.
Well Austinstar if you ever find out you will know you were wrong, of course if you are right, you will never know it. Ironic really. :)
Agua - I can only live my life based on what I know now. To live one's life based on conjecture is folly. And yes, I will KNOW in the here and now that I am correct. I cannot control what happens after I die no matter what I believe or disbelieve.
We tend to fear what we don't understand and if fundsmentalists haven't learned the reasons an agnostic or atheist believes what they do, they'll not have "kumbaya". moments,
.That said, it works both ways! Annie
You are 100% correct. It's all about profit and not paying taxes and getting special favors from politicians and any other wool they can pull over the eyes of their "flocks".
