    I choose God. I choose his wonderful grace that he has bestowed upon us so lovingly through his son Jesus Christ whom he sent to Earth to live and die upon that cross so that all of mankind can have the choice of eternal life if they accept that Jesus Christ is their lord and savior who arose on that third day and is alive for today and eternity. This is my choice and I hope the choice of many, many others.

      Have you read  much in terms of world mythology, science, anthropology, history and so on? If you have, how do you manage to think that this means anything at all to anyone outside your cult?

      I have seen you behavior, and I choose not to discuss anything with anyone who would call someone insane because of their beliefs. Have a good day.

    Why do you have to choose either one. I do not believe in a god but I do not function on self praise.

    I believe that I am a part of a process. I do not believe that that process was initiated by a god but by the forces that govern the universe. The main ones being Gravity and Electromagnetic forces. The process is too extensive to explain here.

    I'm not positive what you mean by self praise. If one does something good, a pat on the back is relatively harmless. But, if one assumes that everything they do is right, then the praise over-inflates the ego. I feel that self empowerment, however, is important to everyone. When overcoming obstacles, saying "I can do this" or "I did it" can be vital for building self worth and morale. If we constantly give credit for our accomplishments to someone, or something, else, then we belittle ourselves, which isn't productive.
