    Some of the worst, most lonely, horrific times in my life happened when I tried to believe in a religious god. It is a little insulting to say the only happiness that people who are not religious can have is ...."Money, sex, drinking, parties, drugs, lying and etc."

    What about family, children, the simple joy of taking a walk on a foggy morning, listening to music, reading a good book...and etc.?  (and don't tell me people who believe in god don't enjoy sex....)

      You misunderstood me I said these are some of the imitations that people are saying makes them happy. But, If God is not in you Life then these family, children, the simple joy of taking a walk on a foggy morning, listening to music, reading a good book...and etc want make you happy, I know!!!!!!!!

          Hey Justine, you didn't misunderstand what was said. He is just trying to manipulate you to see his side by claiming you cannot have the happiness with family, friends and other things without god first.

          So, in the end, you didn't misunderstand- he apparently refuses to grasp the concept of life without a god. He isn't interested in learning, just manipulation.

      Here Here! You got some good ideas for happiness!

      Have you ever satisfied a gut feeling to follow a dry and dusty road that's beckoning you to find the heart of a shimmering summers day? Have you ever seen a sight as beautiful as that of the  rain soaked purple of the white birch in spring?

        sure have. I walked five miles back from where the jeep got stuck o n that dusty road....hand in hand whith my best friend.  or how about, standing still in field in waist deep snow, or a full moon reflecting off a frozen lake, kissing in the rain by an old rock dam, lying on your back watching fluffy clouds float through an azure summer sky, watching your grandparents renew their wedding  vows on their 50th anniversary....
